Overview

St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

Gulf Front Home, 5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16) with Private Pool & Elevator

Attention renters: All valid contracts must be executed by STELLA DOWLING (the sole owner of this home).

This spacious custom home offers all of the amenities needed for a dream vacation by the sea! A beautifully luxurious home, A Dream To Sea boasts 5 bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathroom, beachfront view and access to a Gulf front deck—a great option for a large family vacation or business retreat!

The living area is located on the 1st level of our upscale beach home. The open living/dining/kitchen concept is great for entertaining large groups and allows families to stay connected to create memories that will last a lifetime. The living room offers comfortable seating after a long day at the beach, where you can relax as you recount the day’s activities or indulge in a movie on the large flat panel TV. A gas fireplace provides heartwarming ambiance during the colder months and large sliding glass doors invite you back to the beach with their incredible views of shimmering Gulf waters.

The modern kitchen is a chef’s dream with a 5 burner stove, oven, microwave, full size refrigerator, 2 sinks and 2 dishwashers! A separate ice maker, quality cookware and plenty of kitchen and eating utensils add to the amazing convenience of this top notch kitchen. Granite countertops and a tiled backsplash add to the feel of luxury beach living.

The large dining table seats up to 10 for an inclusive dining experience with a Gulf view. Additional seating for 5 is available at the breakfast bar or you may prefer to enjoy your meals on the covered deck.

A warm and inviting King bedroom is also located on the 1st Level, with access to the beachfront covered deck and a private bathroom with tiled shower.

The 2nd level offers 3 bedrooms: the Bunk bedroom has 2 double bunk beds, sleeping up to 4 persons each (for a total of 8) and would work well for adults or children. A sliding glass door opens to the sundeck with more breathtaking Gulf views and the private bath has both a full size bathtub and stand up shower. The spacious King bedroom has 2 sliding glass doors which open to the Gulf front sundeck and a private bath with tiled shower completes the suite. The Queen bedroom also has Gulf front sundeck access and a private bath with full size bathtub and tiled shower. The laundry room is also located on this level with HE washer, dryer, sink and beach towels available for your use.

The King Master Suite is located on the 3rd level of our home, where panoramic beach and Gulf views are abound! The large, four-poster bed denotes a feeling of royalty as you delight your senses in the calming hues and décor of this comfortably designed bedroom. A mini-fridge and convenient single-cup coffee maker allow you to begin your day of leisure without disturbing the household below. Additional features include a walk-in closet and large private bath with garden tub, 2 sinks and tiled shower with 2 shower heads. A 50’ wall mounted flat panel TV, oversized reading chair and work desk with complimentary computer and printer use are just a few of the personal touches that may have you spending most of your time indoors! The private, covered balcony will beckon you back to the beach as you watch the waves wash upon the shore from your personal piece of paradise.

Glass railings on 3 Gulf front decks provide an unobstructed view and comfortable deck seating will entice you to spend quality time in the calming Gulf breezes with family and friends and is a great way to greet the morning sunrise. A unique feature on the island, the large, landscaped lawn provides additional space to play as well as 2 park-style charcoal grills. An enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower and fish cleaning sink for those avid fishermen are available in the carport area and the private beach boardwalk just steps away will lead you to the white sandy beaches of St. George Island.

The private swimming pool is a desirable place to relax in the sunshine with spacious decking and comfortable furniture and can be heated for an additional fee (some restrictions apply). Pool floats, toys and beach gear are also available for your use.

Additional amenities include an elevator which reaches the 2nd level as well as plenty of DVDs, games, puzzles and cards for the young at heart.

So if you are looking for the dream vacation you won't be disappointed with 'A Dream To Sea' located on beautiful St. George Island, Florida!

About Stella Dowling

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

Why Stella Dowling chose St George Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

St. George Island!

A Dream To Sea is located on the East End of St. George Island, where public beach access is minimal-which means plenty of uncrowded beach for you and your family!

The Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park is located just 2 miles East, where you can experience the pristine, natural setting that St. George Island is known for. Camping, two small boat ramps, surf fishing and bird watching are just a few of the opportunities available.

A short 15 minute drive West and over the bridges will take you into historic Apalachicola where you can spend the afternoon experiencing the downtown district along the waterfront with mouth watering local seafood restaurants and beautiful local gift and specialty stores. Beautiful historic homes, museums and art galleries make this small fishing town a must see!
