First Rate Stay
My family of 8 adults, a three year old, and two babies spent the last week of May in this lovely home. EVERYTHING about this property was exceptional. The beds were comfortable, plenty of kitchen utensils, fluffy beach towels, clean pool, beautiful furniture, nice floor plan with extra living space upstairs away from main floor activity. We loved everything about this home. Pool area was perfect spot to regroup after a day on the beach. Lovely space to hang out and the covered porch was perfect for board games and morning coffee. We LOVED that this house came with bicycles. Biked to the beach and shops everyday. The only thing I might add is a high chair and pac-n-play. A second freezer for ice would be nice but we managed well enough without those items. We’ve vacationed for many years in rental homes and this tops the list.

Manager Response:  Thank you for your review and for being our guest at Island Whimsy! We are so glad to hear that you all had such a wonderful stay and found everything about the property exceptional. We love that the home's features made it one of the top places you’ve rented.  We're thrilled that you loved the pool area, the covered porch, and that the bicycles added to your daily adventures as well. Thank you for your suggestions regarding the extra items too - we can certainly consider adding those items. It was a pleasure hosting you all and we hope to to welcome you back again next time you visit St. Simons!

A Piece of Paradise
We had an amazing stay at Island Whimsy! The property was beautifully decorated and very clean. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, from ample kitchen equipment that allowed us to cook delicious meals at home, to tons of beach towels, beach chairs, and other beach equipment such as coolers that made the stay super convenient. We had the pool heated and I'm so glad we did that! We had a wonderful time hanging in the pool and hot tub, even when the temps were a little chillier. The great Customer Service and timely communications with our inquiries answered quickly were also very much appreciated. We rent VRBO properties regularly, and this is definitely one of our favorites we've rented thus far. This place definitely does not disappoint, and we can't wait to come back in the future!

Manager Response: Thank you for your review and for being our guest at Island Whimsy! We're thrilled to hear that you had an amazing stay and that the property met all your needs. We're glad you enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub - they really are perfect for those cooler days. We're also delighted to hear that our customer service hit the mark for you as well. We strive to make sure all our guests have a smooth and enjoyable experience, so it's wonderful to know we were able to assist you promptly with your inquiries. Your feedback means the world to us, especially since you're seasoned VRBO renters. Knowing that Island Whimsy stands out as one of your favorites is the best compliment we could receive. We can't wait to welcome you back in the future for another memorable stay!

Family Thanksgiving!
The house was perfect for our family over Thanksgiving. The kitchen had everything that was needed. The pool was heated to 90° and the layout was perfect. Perfect location between the beach, restaurants and shops. There was plenty of room with six adults and three kids. The upstairs bonus room was a nice touch with a second living area, and two beds with trundles.

Manager Response: Thank you for your review and for being our guest at Island Whimsy! We are thrilled to hear that the accommodations were perfect for your family.  We are so glad the kitchen had everything you needed and that the heated pool added an extra layer of enjoyment for your stay as well.  We love that we could help play a part in making this a memorable Thanksgiving and we hope we can host you all again next time you are in St. Simons!

Wonderful time!
Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our week staying at Island Whimsy. The home is very clean and well-appointed. We enjoyed the pool everyday, and relaxed with good books on the screened porch. After making a good meal in the spacious, well-appointed kitchen, we would sink into our fluffy beds in cool bedrooms at night - ceiling fans lulling us to sleep. Location of home is excellent. Easy walk to village, beaches, etc.

Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review and for being our guest at Island Whimsy! We are so glad you had such a wonderful family vacation here and that you enjoyed the pool and screened in porch as well! We loved being able to host you all and hope to see you again next time you are in St. Simons!

Absolutely gorgeous home
This house is absolutely stunning. It’s beautifully decorated and has all of the conveniences of your own home. It is wonderfully stocked with good dishes, silverware, glasses, cups etc. in addition there were serving platters and dishes that made you feel like home if you choose to stay in and cook. In addition the furniture was quality, comfortable and sturdy. The pool and back yard were just beautiful and made you feel like you were at a private resort. I was blown away with how nice this home was. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

A beautifully appointed house. Very comfortable. The only suggestion would be a couple grab bars in the showers, particularly the master bathroom.

Amazing privacy and top notch home
Our entire family LOVED Island Whimsy. Of course, the best perk is the private pool. We also enjoyed the outdoor furniture, the screened porch with swing, the well furnished and exquisitely clean home! Our only regret was having to check out when we did. Oh, yeah! Having the four bikes provided was a highlight of our time on the island! It was super helpful to have beach towels provided as well! The price isn't a bargain--but was worth the "splurge" for this special event. It would be an excellent place to try to use all the bed space and perhaps split the cost if two families (or extended family) wanted to share. We couldn't have asked for anything nicer. The home is just as pictured online!

Manager Response:  Thank you for your 5 star review, Steven!  We are so glad you all enjoyed Island Whimsy!  There are so many things about this rental home that are amazing, and it sounds like you all were able enjoy it all!  We hope to see you all again soon!

Great experience at Island Whimsy. Beautiful new house; all amenities were great. Location was OK, but felt a bit far from beach and Pier. Recommend a golf cart rental.

Wonderful St Simon's Stay
Island Whimsy was perfectly appointed, the beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen had a blender/rice cooker/food processor/air fryer as well as sheet pans, plenty of cooking utensils and enough plates, glasses and silverware for a small army. We enjoyed each and every moment of our stay, the beach chairs were a great amenity for when we weren’t by the pool.
