Popular East-end location offers a unique stretch of beach with many private homes/owners, creating a quieter, more private beach experience, and only one mile from the infamous State Park. Bike paths alongside the road covering the entire island!
Many locals & guests refer to our location as the best stretch of beach & homes on the island, offering expansive views, beautiful sunrises & sunsets, and quiet, uncrowded beaches. Due to the many homes that are nearby that are privately owned, the beaches are quieter and feel a bit more 'private' than in other areas of the island where the lots are smaller, and the lots are only 50'wide, vs. 100 feet (ours), providing your family or friends with more space on the beach.

About Laurie Hughes Rainey
I am from a family of 6 children, raised in Albany, GA, and graduated from the University of Georgia's Business School in 1979. We enjoyed living and operating a publishing business in Athens (in our 33rd year).
I became restless and was driven to move near the sea and the stars, slow down, and enjoy the peace & tranquility of this special space. It was one of the best moves for me personally. I love the island life, slow-friendly-active, water everywhere, spectacular fishing, swimming, kayaking, shelling, waking the beaches, enjoying the sunrises and sunsets, and star gazing!
We are active, enjoying meeting new people and friends alike, love the outdoors, excursions, reading, having friends over for dinner or a bonfire, and spending time caring for and enjoying our 2 dogs - Cleo and Bailey.
I enjoy providing Blue Heaven to special guests who have enjoyed our home and in order to create special memories of their own!
I love living on the island, and rise to the sunrises in the morning strolling the beach. I enjoy walking the beach and collecting items that don't belong there (litter, generally washed in from the sea), sea shells to place on the decks, watch the sea gulls and blue herons and dolphins swimming close to shore. I love to play and swim in the sea, enjoy kayaking, roller skating, COOKING!, spending time with friends, good music & books, and movies. Luv my 15 year old bichon, Bailey., and her side kick we adopted from the pound - Cleo. The both love the freedom of
It is really important to me to get to know you so I can help to ensure that you have what you need to create the experience you dream of while relaxing during your vacation. We don't vacation enough, so it has to be right, when you arrive.
I am available to you during your stay 24/7. I have a local property manager/friend, who takes care of many properties (but not too many), so there is a local contact person who responds quickly to any issues or questions.

Why Laurie Hughes Rainey chose St George Island
WOW! The east end offers some of the best locations on the island.
Fewer people, expansive beaches, great views, offering solitude for the soul, and a marvelous place to create memories, heal the spirit, and meet new people on similar journeys in their own lives.
Unlike many areas of the island, the lots in this area are 100 feet wide, which provide for a more private-feel, with less people roaming the beaches, and the opportunity to walk only one mile east, and into the state park for many many miles. There is a private lot behind Blue Heaven, providing an extra sense of privacy from the road. Many of the homes to the east and west are held by private owners, and do not offer rental opportunities, thereby creating a much quieter & more private beachfront
experience. The bike/walking paths are right our front, and run east and west in both directions. It is wonderful place to enjoy!
I have received many complements regarding the comfort of working directly with the owner (that would be me), and Ken (the local property manager) rather than large property management firms to solve and resolve any issues or needs our guests may have.
We are responsive and work hard to ensure the property is clean, fully stocked, and ready for you & yours to relax, laugh, engage and make memories for a lifetime.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I wanted to let you know how thoroughly we enjoyed your beautiful home last week. It was everything we needed and much more. Even on the rainy days we enjoyed snuggling up and watching the Olympics and sitting on the deck. The beds were extremely comfortable, the kitchen was beautifully equipped, and the house was ideally located.
Ken was very helpful and we loved listening to his British accent! We really appreciated him bringing the toaster, and for him to bring it during the storm was gallant.
Thank you for allowing us to spend our vacation in your home, and we would love to have the honor of renting from you in the future. We also saw how large and beautiful the Whaley House was. Although we didn't go inside obviously, we could only imagine how wonderful it would be to have a large family gathering perhaps using both houses. I will highly recommend both houses to all of my friends and family. Thank you again for being so gracious.
