Why the Owner Chose East End: St. George Island is a 22-mile barrier island with some of the most beautiful and serene beaches on the Gulf Coast. It is one of the last inhabited, yet unspoiled, barrier islands of Florida, with miles of uncrowded beaches for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and excellent fishing, pristine marshes for wildlife viewing. The East of of St. George Island is a remote, quiet area unlike any other available along the Gulf of Mexico. The east end is the perfect location for being far enough away from the center of the island so there is complete privacy, but close enough to the center for a quick run into town to do your errands. St. George has just the right mixture of peaceful solitude and all the conveniences for shopping and dining.
