Overview

St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

Rrenovated 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 Jackie Smithson 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.

simple but cosy

  • 4 of 5

A simple but clean and comfortable house for 4 adults and possibly a kid, but there are only 2 double beds for 4. A couple of minutes from a very pleasant beach. The house is very well equipped: there is a TV for each person! The house is about a mile from the restaurants and shops and is on the main road. The traffic is pretty relaxed, so the noise is not an issue.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you found the Aqua Pearl cozy and comfortable. Actually the two bedrooms both have queen size beds. There are also two full bathrooms so the layout works out well for 4 adults as well as a couple of kids. There is a queen size air mattress with linens that is perfect for kids and works well in the second den. We hope you visit again!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a month at the Aqua Pearl. This house is set up very well for longer term renters. Plenty of space to put your clothes and not have to live out of your suitcase. The kitchen is pretty well stocked for cooking meals, the bathrooms were clean and updated and the beds were comfortable. The owners have done a wonderful job of decorating. After being in the cold winter in the North, the Florida colors were uplifting!! :) Its a short walk to the beach and convenient to restaurants. What more can you ask for!! We'd rent again without hesitation.

Perfect Everytime!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Aqua Pearl! Every time we are there, we feel like we're at home. It is clean, current, convenient...everything we need. Usually, we visit during summer, but we got the opportunity to go during winter and it was perfect. There just isn't a bad time to go to the Aqua Pearl! Everything we need is truly a short walk away.

Nice!

  • 4 of 5

We came for the local oysters and we were not disappointed. The home is clean, comfortable and well equipped. The only bummer was the wifi which had a very poor signal. Could not log onto my lap top and my iPad had very spotty coverage. Overall it was a great getaway.

Owner's Response: The oysters never disappoint us either! Glad you enjoyed your stay and so sorry the local internet was spotty. It happens sometimes on the island--makes you have to "get away from it all" which isn't always a bad thing! We would love to have you visit again. Thanks so much!

so perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We just celebrated our 27th anniversary Sept 25th at the Aqua Pearl...We brought our 2 four legged children with us for the week. The house is so nice..open and clean and comfortable ...the kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs. We had such a nice relaxing time, walked on the bike path...sunned on the front deck with cocktails in the afternoon. We cooked delicious seafood meals every night...2 min down the road Doug had fresh seafood available everyday....Saint George Island is amazing ...you can do alot or nothing at all...our weather was perfect...can't wait to go back....thank you for such a nice place....all on one level for my old dog and husband ....!!

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!
