About Greg Smith
Why this property?
Our family fall in love with St George Island after a few visits this magical place. In 2000 we bought our The Palms Retreat. In the beginning we signed with a local Island company to manage our house. However shortly we decided to manage our house ourselves because we wanted to give house and our guests personal attention and care which only owner can provide. It is important for us that our guests will experience the excitement we got every time we visit The Island.
We advertise our house on all major sites like VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, etc. However these sites charge substantial fee to travelers and us, owners. If you found this site and decided to book directly with us you will get the best rate. No travelers fee and our rate is better because we pass our saving to you.
We are visiting our house regularly. We also have a trusted team of maintenance technicians and housekeepers who are taking care of our house when it needs. We are serving all our appliances systematically and according their manuals because we want to minimize its unexpected failures. We are proud to report that out respond time on any telephone call from our guests is usually less than 1 hour.
We are catering to customers who demand the personal attention that comes with booking through a flexible company like ours. We enjoyed interacting with our guests.
* We are the owners with a personal, hands on management style.
* Attention to detail and a commitment to excellence in customer service are the cornerstones of our business.
* We want our guests to have the best vacation rental experience on the St George Island so they will return year after year.
* We keep our guests informed of the exciting events occurring in the area.
We hope you enjoy your tour of our website. We look forward to providing you with the best value on the beach today!
