Currently we reside in Roswell, Georgia. We love watching college football, cooking and spending time at home, either in Roswell or at St. George Island.

NOTE* The map is incorrectly marked. Our home is to the lower left of the marked area.

Stella Dowling purchased this house in 2011

Avid Florida State University football fans, we chose this location due to its proximity to Tallahassee, which is only 75 miles away. We love the idea that there are bike paths on the island and are designated for bikers and walkers. Small family style restaurants make it fun to dine out in a casual setting and the oysters are the best in the US! We fell in love with the quaintness of this island and the beautiful waters on the Gulf of Mexico.

While staying at A Dream To Sea, we love to visit Appalchicola for their famous oysters on the half shell. We also enjoy the offseason having quiet walks on the beach. Unlike Panama City, Florida and Destin, Florida, St. George Island offers a family type atmosphere and is never crowded even during the summer months. This is not a 'Spring Break' destination if you are looking for a party yet it offers enough activities that most families will enjoy spending a break away from home here.

MISTY

This beach home is the best! I have stayed in many nice places and this is my favorite. Several reasons include: perfect view, on the beach, grass yard (great for kids), pool (can be heated), grill, outside shower, fully stocked kitchen, 5 large bedrooms/bathrooms, elevator (great for loading/unloading luggage), glass railings (unobstructed view), TVs in all rooms (many channels), ...perfect. Also, the style of the home and decor is beautiful. Very updated and clean. Loved everything about it!! Not much shopping/activities in St George, but that was perfect for us because we were there with family and didn't want all of the distractions. St George does have several stores/restaurants there are very good. We will rent from Stella again!! Misty

EXCELLENT PLACE TO TAKE THE FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely gorgeous views of the Gulf from this home on all floors. The glass railing was perfect for an unobstructed view. The home was beautiful inside and out ! If you like having plenty of private beach to yourself, this is the place to be. Can't say enough about the excellent treatment we received from the owner and the property manager. People on the island were all very friendly and really appreciate the tourists . Would not hesitate to go again ! Thanks Stella and Jamie !

BEAUTY FROM EVERY ANGLE

  • 5 of 5
We had the PLEASURE of staying at "A Dream to Sea" while on St. George Island. The house is everything the pictures show and so much more. It is stunning. Each of the 5 bedrooms has it's own Master Bath which is such a plus. We loved that there was a yard as so many don't have that. The views were unobstructed by the glass railings mentioned by a previous renter. Wake up every morning to a beautiful view no matter which room you choose. My son got to the house later than we did and he called saying he HOPED he wouldn't be the one left with the "crapppy" room. As I told him on the phone and he found out...there are no "crappy" rooms. Each one is a retreat. If I ever get the chance to come back to St. George island, there is no question that this is the house I am renting. I would even change my vacation plans to coincide with an opening at this house. The pictures don't do this house justice.

LIVING A DREAM

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this beach house was perfect and beautiful. All of the bedrooms had beautiful, unobstructed views of the beach, just what you dream about for a beach vacation. The floor plan is open, great for relaxing or entertaining with great views. I loved having the option of a swimming pool or an almost private beach and the grassy backyard is perfect for kids. The island had affordable dining options and fresh seafood options. Appalchicola is a quaint town with affordable dining options and cute stores.
This vacation was everything I was looking for, just perfect. I look forward to my next vacation at this house.

TRULY A DREAM

  • 5 of 5
If you are a true beach fan, as I am, you will love this home. Not only is it so comfortable and well equipped, it is well located and feels very private. St George Island is what a beach should be... casual and relaxing yet there is plenty to do if you want.
The most remarkable thing about this home (which I am sure many would not even think about) is the fact that instead of distracting pickets on the railings, the balconies all have glass plates which allow for a fantastic unobstructed view of the ocean!!! If you think this is not that big of a deal, think again!!! IT MAKES FOR AN AMAZING VIEW!!!
I was very privileged to have spent a week at this lovely home and hope to be able to go again!

Great vacation home. Very accessible. Views from every bedroom of the gulf. The home is beautifully maintained with everything you could possibly need for a vacation. Great to have a private pool and the beach as well as a grassy area especially with little kids. Would love to go back.
