VINTAGE BEACH COTTAGE ON ONE LEVEL- OCEANVIEW

St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This newly renovated single level beach cottage was completely redone inside and out. No stairs to climb to bring in your luggage, groceries, or beach gear. Beautiful new kitchen complete with butcher block countertops, top of the line appliances, and everything you need to cook fresh seafood you can purchase right down the street. Two new indoor bathrooms and a private enclosed outdoor shower with endless hot water provide plenty of room for all to clean up after a day on the beach. New decks across the front and back of the home offer gulf views and comfortable seating among the palm trees and jasmine privacy trellises. The two story observation deck is a wonderful place to soak up the sun, have a cup of morning coffee watching the sunrise, or have an evening meal watching the sunset over the bay. Two comfortable bedrooms with queen beds, a den with an air mattress, and living/dining room each have large flat screen televisions and a dvd player in the living room. Free wireless internet service is also provided for your convenience. The island bike path is located right across the street and is convenient for walking pets, jogging, biking, & island site seeing. The beach access is a pleasant two minute walk-approximately 100 yards from the cottage. Visit Facebook for more photos--search Aqua Pearl.

Why The Owner chose St George Island

We discovered Apalachicola and SGI in December 2009. By April 2010 we were homeowners on the island. We immediately started renovations on the Wishing Well, an 'Old Florida' beach cottage, and have turned it into the newly remodeled Aqua Pearl keeping the vintage cottage style. We love the Forgotten Coast and it's relaxed living. Island time is the best time there is.

What makes this cottage unique

The Aqua Pearl is a home away from home without the daily stresses of life. It is comfortable inside and out. We enjoy relaxing and also enjoy how easy it is to stay active while vacationing with the island bike path just across the street. Bicycle rentals are right down the road and we enjoy riding to the state park and to the bay to watch the sunset. The path is also great for walking and jogging but a morning walk on the beach can't be beat. The fishing pier is also a great place to take a stroll and to fish! We enjoy the great variety of restaurants in Apalachicola and have our favorites on the island. We also enjoy cooking in our beautiful new kitchen and love that you can purchase fresh Florida seafood right down the street and also great cuts of meat on the island as well. The observation deck is a wonderful place to have a cup of morning coffee or enjoy your evening meal while the sun sets. The back deck is private and peaceful and a perfect place to enjoy the ocean breezes in the shade after a day on the beach. The layout of our home works great for families with two to three children since there are two separate living areas with televisions and dvd players so that you can have a little time apart when needed. It also works great with two couples since you have your own spaces.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a great time. The house is great. Actually, it's better than great. You guys did an amazing job to create a cozy vibe and we loved it!

Eddy Teach's has $4.50 doz oysters (1/2 price) between 3:30-4:30 everyday. Those were best oysters we had. We ate oysters there 3 times. Weather was great.

Fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We just had a wonderful stay at the Aqua Pearl. It has been beautifully renovated - a true beach cottage! It's well-equipped and well-maintained, and the owners are very responsive to questions. The location is ideal - just across the street from the island bike trail, and about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The observation deck was relaxing place to dry off and drink a cold one after playing in the ocean. As a bonus, there's a fenced-in yard, which made things easy on us and our dogs. Can't say enough good things about St George Island - low-key beautiful beaches, a perfect place to chill out with our fur-babies. We would certainly return the Aqua Pearl for our next trip to St George Island!

Delightful Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We visited St. George Island for the destination wedding of a granddaughter. The option of staying at the Aqua Pearl, rather than at the Big House with 20 other family members, was a smart move.
The house is exactly as the photos show. The accommodations were perfect....very clean, well appointed Florida decor, with lots of space inside and outside. The ambiance was great. The 2 couples enjoyed the lovely setting and had perfect weather besides. Lucky!

Just like home

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to find this gem available for 2 weeks in our favorite vacation spot. This home is charming, immaculate, quiet on a beautiful landscaped lot. The open floor plan kitchen, dining & living room area was well furnished for comfort and felt like home. Although we only used the master BR, we loved having 2 full baths. The kitchen was fully equipped. We especially liked the upstairs deck where the breeze made for great sunbathing and sunset viewing. We would love to stay here in the future. We would recommend this home to anyone wanting a great place to relax even when it's raining like it did for the last 4 days of our visit. We had no complaints and the owner was great to work with.jan

Owner's Response: So very happy that you enjoyed your two week stay at the Aqua Pearl despite those last few rainy days. We are thrilled that you felt at home because that is exactly what we were hoping for. You were great to work with too! Come back any time!

Great Get Away!

  • 5 of 5
The Aqua Pearl was just perfect for a recent get away for me, my husband and our four-legged child, Katy! The residence was well appointed, decorated in lovely "beachy" colors and fabrics and just the right size for us. We loved the private back deck as well as the observation deck for sunrise/sunset views. The nearby restaurants all had wonderful offerings and welcomed Katy to dine with us. All in all, we had a WONDERFUL time and would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are so glad your enjoyed your getaway to the Aqua Pearl. We appreciate your nice comments and are always happy when our guests like the "feel" of our home. The observation deck is one of our favorite places too. SGI is so dog friendly and it is nice to be able to take the furry kids to dine with you. We would love to have you stay again. Thanks so much.

My family and I had a awesome stay at the Aqua Pearl! Pictures don't do justice! Very cute and closer to the beach than we had thought. The owner Jackie was very friendly and easy to work with. We look forward to staying at the Aqua Pearl in the near future!
