Recently renovated in 2012, Mariner's Compass boasts panoramic gulf views from every bedroom of this beachfront Plantation home. Spend fun times cooking, relaxing, or playing games with your family in the comfortable central great room. Both first floor bedrooms open to the large lanai where you can watch the sun rise over the gulf with your morning coffee. An upstairs loft has a private deck and bathroom - a great place for the kids!

OUR PIECE OF HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Our family has stayed in Mariner's Compass the past 3 summers for our "week in paradise!" I first stayed on St George Island in the early 80's and upon my return in 2008 I was delighted to find the island unspoiled by high rises & clubs and was thrilled to share the quiet island experience with my family! Finding Mariner's in it's first rental year was a fabulous treat for our little family of 4 from Iowa. We are very happy to hear that the house is now under new ownership and look forward to a return visit to enjoy the new decor & updates noted in the photos! This house is truly a "best kept secret" and sits on the best strip of the Gulf in the Plantation. Mariner's has always been well stocked, clean and inviting and is the perfect size for our family of four. Our 2 teens take turns claiming the loft with private balcony or the queen room with sliders to the deck while we enjoyed the king master with sliders to the other side of the huge deck. We love the winding boardwalk to the beach, outdoor shower, tuck under parking and the gorgeous views of the Gulf from the deck with palms leaning nearby. Last year we brought our bikes and enjoyed early morning rides through the trails. Mariner's is conveniently located mid-Plantation so it was a fun ride West to the Cut or East to Gulf Beaches. So, one week each summer we head south to our perfect escape! We love the island charm, and its' calm, quiet beauty - magnificent sunrises & sunsets, watching dolphins, shelling, swimming, sunning, beach combing, boogie boarding & family laughter. Last summer we watched quietly in awe, sitting on a towel, while mama sea turtle nested right in front of the house! Camping in Yellowstone, Disney resorts, and the hustle & bustle of Myrtle Beach have never lured us back, but Mariner's Compass has never failed to charm & delight us and we are eager to return... :D

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoy Mariner's and can't wait for you to see our changes! It is such a special spot and we really love it too; the way it's tucked in those neat little oak trees and the wide beach. St. George Island is a wonderful place overall and we certainly hope you and your family continue to enjoy it from Mariner's Compass for years to come!

GREAT RENTAL ON ST. GEORGE!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mariner's Compass in July 2011 and had a wonderful stay. The view from each bedroom is incredible and the privacy allowed by each room makes this property a nice getaway with friends. In the past eleven years, we have stayed at many houses in the Plantation and appreciate the comfort at this cottage combined with a beautiful location that exceeded our expectations. Given the reasonable rate and excellent location, we believe this cottage is a best kept secret on the plantation. We plan on returning to this property next year. We can't wait to see what the new owners have in store for this island gem.

GREAT VIEW AND LOCATION IN PLANTATION, BUT HOUSE DIRTY AND NEGLECTED

  • 3 of 5
My family stayed in Mariner's Compass 7/2-7/9, 2011. We had a great time. The view is beautiful and the house is 2 blocks to the community pool and tennis. HOWEVER, the house is in bad shape. The carpet throughout living area is badly stained, the kitchen counter tops are tiled and dirty looking. Everything needs updated, the couches need to replaced, everything is very worn looking. Owners need to put some money into this house badly!!!!
