BEACHFRONT, PRIVATE POOL, 5 BR, SLEEPS 12, MULTIPLE LIVING AREAS

St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12, Upstairs and Downstairs Living Areas

Beach front living, mere steps from the ocean via your own private boardwalk: Breathe Easy is the family-friendly home that will make your vacation holiday special. Upscale furnishings and flat-screen tvs with DVD players are found in the two separate living areas; over 3000 sf means lots of room for extended families. Upstairs, the large, open-house plan includes a living room with over-sized couches and a 55-inch HDTV, dining table for ten, well-equipped kitchen and a sun porch area with additional seating and eating areas. The expansive balcony provides outdoor easy living, whether watching the dolphins or the kids playing in the Gulf. The three bedrooms upstairs have king-size pillow-top mattresses, with two having private bathroom access. The large downstairs living area has a fully-equipped morning kitchen with an additional full-size refrigerator. DVD, book, and game libraries are also available. Bedrooms downstairs include one with queen-size pillow-top mattress and the other, a children's bunk room with two bunk-beds (twin over double), and bath with large shower.

Breathe Easy's private pool with water-fall and extensive sunning area (pool heated during cooler months for fee) with multiple chaise lounges is surrounded by dozens of palms and other tropical vegetation, creating a unique, exotic hotel-like atmosphere. A large dining table complements the large event-sized grill (gas provided), plus another park-style charcoal grill, also in the pool area. The downstairs patio provides additional oceanfront sitting, lounging and eating areas. The outdoor shower and fish cleaning area are optimally located near the house and beach. Breathe Easy is a pet-friendly home for your small, well-mannered canine. Crate provided.

We cherish our vacations, too, and understand the importance of having a clean, comfortable, well-equipped home to make your holiday special.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

We love St. George Island and hope you will, too. First visited in May 2008, fell in love with the Island and purchased Breathe Easy in July 2009. If you are looking for a low-key, family-friendly piece of paradise, St. George Island is it.

Sitting on the balcony, watching the dolphins, while enjoying the sea breeze is one of our great joys in life. Add some friends and family to the mix and life can't be better.

50TH ANNIVERSARY GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The pictures didn't do it justice. We had 3 families with 3 Children. The pictures on this sight was spot on. After unloading, the children headed for the beach. We had plenty of beach towels and beach toys for the children to use. We rented a jet ski and the kids had a blast with their Granddaddy driving. We saw pods of Dolphins and even some baby sharks were caught by our neighbors that fished of the beach. Thanks for the shrimp Ben, it was delicious. We went to the Blue Parrot twice, they offered some great drinks. We cooked at the house most of the time and had plenty of kitchen utensils, pans, dishes, etc. The pool was excellent. The Anniversary couple wanted a house with a pool, beach front view and plenty of room for their family to enjoy without being crowded, and this was the perfect place to do that. We had plenty of shops to roam in and out of. Thanks Sharon and Ben.

PERFECT BEACH HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Island: Quaint, peaceful, clean, family-friendly. No high-rises, resorts or nightclubs.
Beach: Beautiful and Clean! No seaweed or jellyfish. Crabs & starfish at night, shells and dolphins at daytime.
Owners: Wonderful! Truly nice people that are very accomodating and seem to really value your experience at their home.
Home: You couldn't possibly expect more from a vacation home. The home is beautifully decorated with huge, spacey rooms. There is dining indoors and out for 12+ people. The kitchen is very well equipped. The pictures of the interior do NOT do this home justice. It's a lot more modern that the pictures portray. The bedrooms are huge and the floors are all tile - Great for sandy feet. It is very evident that the owners strive to accomodate their guests. There is plenty of paper goods, coffee makers, towles, blenders, beach toys, pool seating, etc. The covered porch upstairs seats 7+ and is wonderful for relaxation. There is also a huge patio on the bottom (beachside) that offers more seating, a shower, and a fish cleaning station.
Pool: The pool area is perfect! It is completely surrounded by a privacy fence and lush, tropical landscaping that allows for complete privacy and a nice, shady area. There are 8 lounges and seating for 12 plus a huge grill. The pool is large and very clean - A very nice escape from the sandy beach.
General: This is the only home that we could see that offered complete privacy on the island. The beachside layout is as such - Concrete patio, then 20 feet of grass (Great for games), then 15 feet of boardwalk over undeveloped beach, then 50ft of white sandy beach, then shallow sandy ocean for 100 feet before the water gets deep.
Suggestions: Rent bikes to see a different view of the island and get ice cream. Take a tour of the lighthouse. Visit the State Park. Buy groceries and alcohol in Apalach (Cheaper). Take the little ones "crab hunting" on the beach after sundown (Nets/buckets sold in souvenir stores). Take a 3am stroll to see the starfish on the beach.
DO NOT hesitate to rent this property. Its proximity to the beach and the beautiful pool area alone make it flawless. The huge rooms, spacious layout, secong living area, covered patio, and beautiful decorating just make it that much more perfect!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE BREATHE EASY!!

  • 5 of 5
We love Breathe Easy and SGI so much that this was our second spring break in the house--and we've already booked next year's stay!

The pictures of the house on this site do a good job of showing how open and spacious the main living level is--but it's really so much more than that. The deck on the gulf side, which is accessible from the family room or master bedroom, has comfy furniture for hanging out--sunrise and cocktail time are particular favorites. And for a change of scenery from sitting and watching the pelicans and the dolphins, you can always use your private path to the beach for a long walk or hit the pool.

The pictures of the pool show the great space and how pretty the pool is, but don't show the improvements made in the last year. There is now a pergola that provides a bit more shade when the sun gets too hot. Last year there was a storm that blew lots of palm fronds into the pool. One quick call to Ben, who is local, got the pool cleaned within a couple of hours and we were all set to go back in for a swim!

We use the lower level to house all of our beach and swim stuff. We keep drinks in the refrigerator down there--nice to be able to grab quickly when either at the pool or on the beach! Super convenient washer and dryer right there are great for handling wet beach towels.

We rented a golf cart--now a must for us--from Jolly Rogers in town. We also grabbed a tent and some beach chairs and spent lots of time on the beach. We don't fish, but the neighbors next door caught two small sharks and had quite a feast!

We went to the State Park on the east side of the island. The beaches there are stunning, which surprised us. We walked along an elevated wooden walkway and then through the forest for a bit. If we'd remembered bug spray and water, we'd have spent even more time there.

Great fun walking to the Beach Pit for breakfast. We love eating at the Blue Parrot, Harry A's and BJ's Pizza, too. We often went to Dale's trailer for shrimp and were also thrilled when Ben showed up one morning with shrimp right off the boat! They are now offering that as a perk to houseguests!

We can't say enough great things, really, about Ben and Sharon, the house and the island. We know that you will fall in love too if you spend a week there!

WONDERFUL VACATION AT BREATHE EASY!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a fabulous vacation at St. George, staying at Breathe Easy. We had 3 families; 6 adults, and 5 children (ages 8, 5, 3, 3, and 1). This house could not have been more perfect. The pictures don't do it justice. It's absolutly gorgeous, right on the beach, and stocked with everything you could possibly need while there. (High chair and beach towels were a plus) There is so much room in the house that we never once felt cramped or in each others way. The kids loved running around upstairs in the open areas. The outdoor patio upstairs was a wonderful way to start each day. We saw dolphins all day everyday. We saw baby sharks, sting rays, jellyfish, turtles, flounder, crabs..everything you could imagine, which the kids loved seeing!

The pool and surrounding patio was perfect for all day pool and beach days (just a few steps to the beach from the pool gate). We hung out there every night as well! Lots of pool toys, boogie boards, and a pop up canopy were already there.

The owners were wonderful to work with. Very easy to communicate with. Texted us to make sure we were doing well. I even texted them to ask where good places to eat in Appalachicola were for a big group and they gave us a great place, Boss Oyster, right on the water and it was perfect for a big group with kids.

Can't say enough about St. George Island. Absolutely loved every minute of it! Was very sad to have to leave!

Thanks Sharon and Ben for sharing your wonderful home with us. Many fabulous memories were made with great friends and family!

ON THE BEACH! BEAUTIFUL POOL! GREAT KITCHEN! PLENTY OF EVERYTHING!!! SUPER CLEAN!

  • 5 of 5
We were EXTREMELY happy with our decision to stay at Breathe Easy. If you are looking for a place to just get away, then this is it! From day one, we watched the dolphins playing just feet from the sand. The ocean area was very clean. (Of course, there was seaweed, but it's the ocean.) When we got exhausted from boogie boarding and playing in the waves, we'd just stop by the convenient outdoor shower and rinse off really well and head to the pool. Thanks to the beautiful palms situated around the pool area, there is always a shady place to hang out. I can only handle a little sun at a time, so I enjoyed the shade while my friends and family soaked up as much sun as they wanted. We also enjoyed sitting around the table out back listening to the waves. And the balcony off the master bedroom and living room quickly became known as the "napping area". As far as the inside goes, I cannot think of a single thing I would've changed. There was an ample amount of towels and beach towels. The kitchen cabinets/dishware were set up just like mine. I instinctively knew where to find the pots and pans and glasses and dishes. My group teased me about that. But it is a testament to the owners who make this house a home. I honestly felt at home there. Back to the house... There is so much room, yet it's set up to be cozy. We could be in the same room and have our "own" space or we could be in the same room and be hanging out together. The set-up is perfect!. The beds and pillows are top quality. I slept so well while I was there. The downstairs kitchen area is perfect for extra drinks and snacks. We were within walking distance of several hang-outs. The Blue Parrot, Harry A's, Eddy Teach's, The Beach Pit, and the Pizza Place were all around a half mile from Breathe Easy and they were all really good. When we didn't go out for dinner we grilled by the pool. The best place to buy steaks is The Market Place just to the right as you enter SGI. And the oysters...well, I don't think we had a bad oyster on our trip. We had planned on renting beach chairs and umbrellas, but we are glad we didn't because the previous renters had left some behind. BONUS! I 100% agree with the other reviews on two things. Number 1: The pictures just don't capture how perfect this place is. (No offense, Ben) And Number 2: I wish I could've stayed longer. I love every single thing about this place. Thank you so much, Ben & Sharon!!! We had a blast! See ya in 2014!
