Another beach side bedroom is the guest bedroom with queen bed with private access to the same covered porch. Wake up each morning to views of the gulf with dolphins jumping in the waves. This level also has a fun kids bunk room with 2 bunk beds (twin over double), bean bag chair and their own private TV DVD combo. A great spot to give kids their own room to play or lounge while watching movies. The guest bedroom and kids bunk room share a large hall bathroom, with new quartz counter tops, updated plumbing and lighting fixtures and a nice sized tub shower combo. The laundry room is conveniently located on this level with a washer and dryer. We also have an elevator that makes arriving and departing with luggage and groceries a breeze.

The second level is an open concept living room/dining room and kitchen with floor to ceiling windows for amazing views of the gulf. From this level, you can see the sugar white sand beach and stunning gulf views. New sectional sofa and club chairs along with unique beach decorative accessories, new large flat screen TV, mounted to swivel for easy viewing of movies or sports games. The updated kitchen has new quartz counter tops and all new stainless steel appliances. The formal dining area has large dining table with seating for 8, and the kitchen island has 4 bar stools. This great room is ideal for large family groups and is the perfect gathering sport for your family. Just off the great room is a bedroom with a large king bed and a full bathroom with new quartz counter tops and updated plumbing and lighting fixtures. This bathroom is shared with the great room.

Last but not least is the large expansive covered porch, making for the perfect outdoor space to take in stunning sunsets and incredible starry nights. The deck has a large outdoor table to alfresco dining along with Adirondack chairs for enjoying beverages and a book. Our home has a boardwalk to the beach for easy and quick access.

Best Thing Ever is Perfect in Every Way    Apr 03, 2019

review star

My wife and I took our two kids (8 and 13) here for Spring Break. The place was everything we needed for a relaxing week away. First, the owner is easy to work with, super responsive to any questions we had, and offered a military discount! The house itself is great!! The elevator, which we didn’t really think we’d use, was perfect for dragging our coolers and groceries up to the kitchen. The decks on the back were perfect for my wife and I to have our morning coffee watching the sun rise . . . and our evening cocktails as we watched it set. We brought our bikes and rode into town to have ice cream and visit. The lighthouse was great for the kids. They enjoyed hearing about how it was damaged during hurricanes, and how the locals were able to salvage the bricks and rebuild it from the original plans. We also drove into Apalachicola where there are so many cool things to do! Most of the time, though, was just spent on the beach in the back yard. The water was a still an it on the chilly side, but I was able to get used to it and spend some time on the paddle board with the kids. Bottom line: you cannot go wrong with this property. You will fall in love. I really wanted to keep the kids out of school for another week, and if they both didn’t have testing the next week, I might have!! Thanks for some great family memories!

Thanks Brian. We’d love to have your family back again and will be happy to extend the military discount again.



Great place for family fun and relaxation!    Mar 22, 2019

review star

Brought the family down for the first time to St. George and the place did not disappoint. Best Place Ever has ample room for everyone, huge decks facing the beach, kitchen/living space is fresh and well appointed. If you need to get to town its just a short drive or bike ride to grab supplies or dinner. Best part is the beach - it is right off the front of the house, a short trip down the boardwalk, so easy and convenient. Looking forward to coming back.

Uncrowded beach!    Nov 22, 2018

review star

We were sick of the destin and 30a crowds- sitting 3 umbrellas deep so we booked this place for us and another family. Great step up for 4 adults, 3 kids and the mother in law... we had direct access to the beach and no condos or neighborhoods nearby to flood the beach. It was great. They’Ve updated it nicely too... new TVs and quit a view from the deck! Highly recommend!
