We are a Norwegian family that moved to Texas in 2001. We love the beach and St George allows us to have some fun family time together. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do and come back in the future.
The one acre property is a short walk through the dunes to the beach. We really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the ease of walking back and forth to the beach. We always leave a base camp on the beach during the day. Since taking over we have been upgrading the house, replaced walkway to beach, installed shutters on the side of the garage, new patio in the back, new stainless steel appliances, some new artwork and furniture.
Waking up to the beautiful sounds on St George and drinking a hot cup of Java while watching the dolphin swim by gives us a joy we can't find many places.
The house is only separated by some dunes from the Gulf of Mexico, a great place to windsurf, kayak, and sail. A short 10 minute drive to boat launch to the Apalachicola Bay for bay fishing, shelling or boating.
The whole area is like a nature park, dolphins are spotted on a regular basis swimming by, turtles lay eggs on the beach and Bald Eagles nest in the area.
If you like to play Golf there is an excellent Golf Course about about 30 minutes drive away. Here the link.
There is a private landing strip on the island which is open to the public but no refueling available. Apalachicola municipal airport is about a 10 minutes drive and refueling and rental car is offered there .
