Living on Island time!

Collins Vacation Rentals looks forward to welcoming you back to St. George Island! We have missed your footprints in the sand! The short-term rental ban has been lifted in our area and the beaches are open without time limits; however, the social distancing (6ft) and groups of 10 or less rules are still in effect. Expect limited parking in most public areas.

Many changes have been made within the operation of Vacation Rentals, as permitted by Governor Ron DeSantis. Vacation Rentals will be allowed from all U.S. States with a COVID-19 case rate of 500 people or less per 100,000 residents as of May 14, 2020. Vacation Rentals from areas identified as high risk through executive orders by Governor DeSantis must be for periods longer than the 14-day quarantine period established. Guest’s occupying vacation rentals must adhere to the quarantine restrictions or be subject to the established criminal and civil penalties.

As of May 18th, the restaurants are allowed 50% indoor seating capacity with some offering outdoor seating as well. To-go orders and delivery are still available; however, bars still remain closed. The Island has two grocery stores that are well stocked including fresh meat, seafood and veggies with curbside pick-up available.

Check-in and check-out times have been changed to 6 PM check-in and 9 AM check-out to allow extra time for enhanced cleaning and sanitation (subject to change if additional time is needed). Our offices are open during normal business hours, our office doors will remain locked for guest’s safety as well as ours. At this time guests will pick up their arrival packets from the lock box located on our office front porch. We suggest guests bring additional supplies i.e. paper towels, toilet paper, disinfectant products, masks, extra blankets and pillows.

Book your beach stay online to save time under our “Vacation Rentals” tab. To make new reservations please call 1-877-603-3247. Please be patient when calling as we are experiencing extremely high call volumes during this time.

We are asking for your kindness, respect and patience as we prepare to do business in a new way. Health and Safety are a primary issue as we continue to move forward in the “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step Plan for Florida’s Recovery” and we will continue to follow guidelines from the CDC. We appreciate each and every one of you for supporting our local economy during this time.

We look forward to seeing you at the beach relaxed and moving at a slower pace!
