'Carapace' is the perfect beachfront cottage with white sandy beach right on the gorgeous bluish-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Once again SGI makes Top Ten Beaches rating. St George rated #3 on the 2013 list of Top 10 Beaches by Dr. Beach, up from #4 last year!
Carapace offers expansive beachfront gulf views from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and sun deck. Great place to enjoy unspoiled beaches and gulf breezes. Take a short stroll down the uncrowded beach or sit at water's edge. It's 'Old Florida' the way it should be - a beautiful natural setting unblemished by crowds and highrise development. Just take a deep breath and reeelaaax.
The natural environment here supports many plant and animal species you will enjoy seeing - blue,fiddler, and hermit crabs, many fish, dolphins, sea turtles, tarpon, manatee, eagles, osprey, and many other sea birds-snowy plovers, least terns. Eco-tours are available on the island for guided sight-seeing, if you like. Or you can strike out on your own for a private adventure.
Watch beautiful sunrises and sunsets from the deck. As darkness falls, you are treated to a magnificient display of starry constellations without the distraction of bright city lights. Many nights you can see the lights from local shrimp boats on the horizon.
To support a sustainable healthy environment we participate in 'eco-lodging' practices at Carapace.

I retired and relocated to the forgotten coast in 1998. I was, and still am, enamoured by the amazing natural environment here.
I love animals and have 3 'rescue' dogs. They are fantastic companions and love spending time at the beach house.
I have been vacationing here since 1975 and couldn't wait to live here fulltime. The area is a great place to live quietly and close to nature. The vistas are breathtaking and the people are friendly. You'll experience life at it's best here. The natural environment is just breathtaking. This area is a globally significant hot-spot of biodiversity. Apalachicola Bay is one of the most productive estuaries in the northern hermishere. For bird watchers, there are 3 flyways through this area. You can still enjoy dark skies abundantly speckled with bright stars here. The mild climate is very enjoyable. I think it's just about as perfect a place as you could ask for. A nature-lover's paradise.
Carapace is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself. Its a great house for vacationing with your family, including the doggies. You can't beat the views, the climate, the food, the fishing, the eco tours. It's a great place to relax and rejuvenate the spirit.
