    All in all, we had a great weekend in a great location. At first, we were slightly sceptical due to all the strict rules we had to follow but the more time we spent and talked, the more we understood why they are in place. The island was amazing and we suggest to anyone who is looking for a place to stay to stay here at Mr. Jim's place. Loved it and look forward to the next vacation here! 08 September 2016 - 14:47:00

    This vacation was just what I wanted - quiet respite right on the beach. Quiet community with Appalachacola near by for some local sights. The water was a tad cool at 61 F and sunshine was short for a couple days, but other than that wonderful. I must go back soon. 04 February 2017 - 17:45:00

    Great location. Inside: Nice updated living area and kitchen. Easily held 4 adults and 2 teens. Kitchen well stocked with utensils. Bedrooms were nice and everyone felt the beds were great (no sagging). Two bathrooms were clean and functional. Washer and Dryer were quite handy. Outside: Deck was functional. Good seating. Backside facia/paint showed quite a bit of wear from the weather but still functional. Just steps to the beach. In general we enjoyed our stay at this home. Good value and willing to rent for less than a week. I would rent from this owner again. 4 stars because of worn appearance of deck area. 18 April 2017 - 15:29:00

    We really enjoyed our stay at Second Wind. Pretty, private beach with soft sugar sand. Each day we had a view of the dolphins pretty close to shore. Really neat to see. We got to witness the "beach life" through the eyes of a 6 and 2 year old. The house was very clean and modern, which made our stay a "home away from home". The owners provided a journal for us to read (and make an entry) which was very helpful on "what to do and where to go" on the island. They also had a big bin below the house with all kinds of beach stuff. I believe it is stuff that other tenants have left behind (or maybe not?) but it was all there for us to use. They provide a grill and an outdoor hose and shower to wash the sand before going back into the house. Perfect set up for a fun family vacation. A sincere Thank you to the owner's who totally know what is comfortable and what you need to spend time at an ocean front beach house. Thumbs up!!!! 30 March 2017 - 00:16:00

    Nicely appointed. Above average towels and linens and mattress comfort. Good space for the 8 of us except at dining table - but we crowded in. (A couple of folding chairs would have been perfect.) Not a lot of knick knacks so good for toddlers. Kitchen ware good (though I never found the can opener). Great beach with a sand bar at low tide. We could all walk to the lighthouse, etc., the five year olds and with a stroller for the 20 month olds (twins and twins!) 16 January 2017 - 23:02:00

    The house was fine although we probably needed more than 2 bathrooms looking back. Everything was clean etc. But on the rules and regs, many sentences were highlighted and we felt the owners were the police. It says that if any keys are lost, there would be a charge. Well, there were only 2 keys in the box and ONE DIDN'T WORK. We called the owner and then had 3 extra keys made because we needed them immediately. Folks were coming in at different times and we needed keys. Also, there were dirty cloths in the dryer. I feel they weren't exactly washed because of the small debris in the dryer. But mostly, we were insulted by the portions of the rules and regs. The owner indicated he lived on the island and would be checking on us if there were more than 8 people ONLY there. I was afraid to have my grandchildren over because we said no kids would be staying there and they highlighted NO KIDS. I was afraid to have them even visit. I get it that some folks are irresponsible but we are NOT and personally the rules on the table in the house even insulted us. These were the rules when departing the home. I've stayed at various homes over the years but have never experienced such rigid rules. So we won't be coming back to any of this owner's properties as I see he has a few. 05 May 2017 - 14:18:00

    All the amenities you would want everything was clean and tidy. We were disappointed with all the cleaning that was required before we left or be charged. Also felt Uncomfortable with the notes left about settings on air conditioner if it malfunctioned we were responsible. 05 April 2017 - 00:29:00
  8. The house was perfect! Had everything we needed. We will definitely come back to SGI. 28 June 2017 - 12:36:00

    This was the fifth time we have rented Day Dreaming/ Second Wind starting in 2011 and our first time to ever be disappointed in the property. (We also rented My Kinda Paradise last year.) The house had not be cleaned well at all. The kitchen countertops had not been wiped off. The floors were not moped well. The windows going out to the deck were very dirty on the inside. We had 3 lights that were out-2 in one bathroom and one in the den ceiling. Not having the screen porch was a big disappointment as that was the main reason we rented Second Wind again. The furniture all needs to be cleaned. I swept the deck as it was very sandy and I picked up a dozen screws from the parts of the porch that had been removed. (Glad we had no small children.) The grass was very high in the yard. I realize there had just been a storm but there is no excuse for the inside to not be clean. The house is in need of repairs outside and a paint job. The property just looks tired and worn. I hope this helps to get Second Wind back to it's former self. Sally Brown 26 September 2016 - 18:42:00

    We really enjoyed our stay. The house was great & the location perfect! Great place for quiet time & long walks on the beach. We did get our "Second Wind" as the name of the beach house suggests!! 22 May 2014 - 15:14:39

    Wonderful home!! Perfect set up for 2 families. Very nicely decorated. Just steps away from the ocean. Our very favorite part was the screened in porch. 10 June 2014 - 23:02:35

    Great property! Clean, well maintained, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds. Direct, private access to the beach. We were just two couples, but the home would easily accommodate kids. Updated, tasteful dcor. The two bathrooms were a bit on the smallish side, but that's the only detractor I can think of. The best feature was the screened-in porch overlooking the beach. The elevated house gives a great view of the beach and gulf, and always catches a breeze when lounging on the porch's large, comfy chairs. Walking distance, but just far enough away from the island's business district, restaurants and market. I highly recommend this property. We loved our trip to SGI, and will be back! 25 May 2015 - 15:38:51

    The house is well appointed and just right for a getaway vacation. We had a mix of families and everyone had there own space plus the ease of a common area for everyone to enjoy each other. The State Park is a must visit if you enjoy kayaking or the wilderness. A special bonus was seeing the morning patrols for loggerhead nests. (Do not leave anything on the beach overnight - it will be confiscated) 24 June 2015 - 11:59:15

    This was our 1st trip to SGI. We loved it! We picked the perfect house!! The house was very well maintained. Very comfy for our family. The owners were quick to respond to all our questions. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!! We look forward to returning in the future!! 11 September 2015 - 16:24:18

    We enjoyed out stay at this property. It is about a 8 hour drive for us, so were ready to have a relaxing time. The location is great and everything that we needed was there. The Tent was very nice to have for the Beach. The only thing that needs attention would be the dishwasher. We ended up hand washing all of the dishes before we put them in the dishwasher. Not a big problem, but the owner does need to have it checked out. Over all, we all had a great time and would love to return to this rental. 13 September 2015 - 21:44:23

    My family had a wonderful time! The house is in a prefect location. Sitting on the back porch makes you feel like you are sitting right on the beach! The sit up of the house is great and had most everything we needed. I would recommend a stay at this house to anyone. 06 June 2016 - 23:28:07

    Perfect house for our vacation. The best was sitting on the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee listening to the ocean. We needed to relax from our hectic life back home and we did exactly that. We went to eat at the Blue Parrot, shopped in Apalachicola and the guys took a fishing charter with SGI Charters. Shopping, relaxing and eating was on the agenda for the week. I would definitely stay in this house again. I did not want to leave. Thank you for having such a beautiful home. 04 July 2016 - 16:00:55
