Most memorable vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I visited the Palms on multiple occasions. Any time of the year, the experience is marvelous. During our recent visit in January we were escorted by dolphins on our kayaking trip. What could be more magnificent? The bikes provided by the house provided for great afternoon bike rides to the island's center. The one minute walk to the beach made watching sunrises on the beach easy. The island is a magical place and we The Palms provides great opportunities to experience all of it.

Had a Great Time!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Palms, and loved St. George Island and the surrounding area! The roomy house was nice and clean, and it was just a short walk to the beach. Bike riding paths in the Plantation were fantastic! We enjoyed the lush, natural setting and all the wildlife we encountered, especially the bird watching! We saw eagles and ospreys on a regular basis. The security deposit was promptly refunded as well, and we appreciated that. We definitely want to come back!

Perfect House for a Fabulous Ten Days on St. George Island

Just home from a fantastic ten days staying in this terrific house. It was everything we could ask for, clean, comfortable, easy access to the beach, open airy floor plan, great decks for a Gulf view. Will definitely consider renting again!

Another amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Your place is great! We love your place and will definitely consider the location for vacations in the future! Very close to the beach, the view from the house is awesome, great floor plan and the house is well maintained and cleaned. Our family had a great time. Everybody loved walking on the beach early in the morning, watching the stars at night and spending hours on the decks. Great vacation! It is really undiscovered Florida. Beautiful Island and not over crowed.

This house has such a great location

  • 5 of 5

This house has such a great location! There is a very short walking distance to the beach and The Gulf View from the house is great. We were enjoyed to watch sunrise and sunset from the decks. The local folks are very friendly and nice. The area is a dog friendly and we enjoyed taking our family dog for the morning walk on the beach. Most local restaurants have reasonably priced and have a good food. The house was cleaned and very welcoming. All of us had a very great vacation. We are definitely planning to be back.

Map

You will not find high rise condominiums, congestion, or crowds. Swimming, shelling, fishing and sunning all await you here; if you want a peaceful getaway, this is the place to be. Wonderful seafood restaurants are located on the island and in nearby East Point, Apalachicola, and Carrabelle. Also, enjoy nine miles of scenic beauty in St. George Island State park located at the eastern end of the island.

Please take a look at this map. Leisure Lane is banding towards The Gulf and brings our house very close to The Gulf.

And this is where you want to be. We are also very close to Bob Sykes Cut. About 10 minutes walking on the beach. It is a very well known and one of the best fishing spot in Panhandle Florida. Only Plantation owners and their guests could fish their.

Other Activities: dining, shopping, swimming, fishing, biking, watching the birds, walking on the beach
