St George Island House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
YOU ARE SURE TO ENJOY your family vacation or best friend getaway in this lovely Gulf beach view home in the Plantation Gated Community. Enjoy the morning Gulf breezes as you eat breakfast on the screened porch. Take a very short walk (approx 50 yds) on the private beach path right out to the Gulf - where swimming, shelling and dolphin watching await you.
The master and spare bedrooms are complete with spectacular views and a covered porch with rocking chairs, which makes them the perfect place to read that long-awaited novel. Southern Exposure has a private heated pool and deck. Beautiful landscaping surrounds the home and pool in combination with the natural beauty of St. George Island. Because the home is in a private gated area, there are no view interruptions of power lines or cables, just nature, bike and walking paths, and quiet.
It is easily accessed from Tallahassee airport (a one and a half hour drive) and is also only about a two hour drive from Panama City. Quaint taverns, stores and restaurants are on the island itself, but just one town over (15 minute drive) is the fishing town of Apalachicola (world famous for oysters) where you can shop for antiques, visit award winning restaurants and go to the movies or see a play. Plantation amenities include a community pool, tennis courts, and excellent fishing at Bob Sikes Cut, which will make your Southern Exposure experience complete!

Why The Owner chose St George Island
After many years of vacationing on the Gulf Coast, we have settled on St. George Island as the perfect location for that relaxing family beach vacation. The Plantation area provides a step back in time to the way Florida used to look, lush vegetation and natural beaches, making it truly Florida's 'Forgotten Coast'.
What makes this house unique
Southern Exposure is a beautiful property, recently renovated with all the comforts of a permanent home. A private pool with jacuzzi, and unobstructed views of the gulf from the many balconies and porches takes relaxing to a new level. A very short walk on a private path puts you directly on the uncrowded beach, ideal for swimming, shelling and long walks. Late night walks have even yielded chances to view nesting sea turtles.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Great house. All the creature comforts of home and especially the extra nice touches that make it seem like more than a rental. The beach is so close you can hear the waves break. It is such a short walk, it as good as being right on the beach front. I especially loved the pool. While it is not giant, it is large enough to soak in and play in.
The stars at night are awesome. With a wrap around porch and my Iphone app, I could scan the entire sky for all the constellations and planets. I could even see the Milky Way.
The beach is so beautiful, uncrowded and sparkling white. We set up a volleyball net and had some great games. There was a turtle nest less than 25 yards away!
I will definitely be coming back.
