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 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.

Wonderful vacation at Breathe Easy!

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!

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!

Best Vacation Home for the Family!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 2, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Over the years we have rented several homes on St. George Island and Breathe Easy has been the nicest so far. When we arrived, the house was clean and ready for us. The open spaces upstairs were perfect for our family gatherings. There were 6 adults and 2 children in our group. The large open dining and family areas were spacious and tastefully decorated. The gulf views from the large picture windows were stunning. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean with plenty of towels for everyone. The beds were very comfortable. We especially loved the covered porch for morning coffee and afternoon napping. The pool was an added bonus for days when the ocean was a bit too choppy for swimming. It was well maintained and cleaned twice while we were there. There was easy access to the beach and plenty of beach toys for the kids. We have stayed in houses before that were skimpy on dishes and cooking utensils. Breathe Easy had plenty of pots and pans for our cooking needs. We also appreicated the starter supply of paper goods for kitchen and bath. We found the appliances in good working order. We also appreciated the extra kitchen space downstairs near the pool. The large capacity washer was great for handling beach towels. Ben and Sharon were gracious and helpful without being intruding. My only regret is that we were only able to stay for 1 week. I would absolutely recommend this home with no hesitation. I would definately work my vacation schedule around available dates for Breathe Easy when we return to St George in the future.

Loved the beachiness of the house, very comfortable and cheerfully decorated, lots of open space and a fabulous covered deck...home is perfectly located right on the beach and near light house and other amenities, however it is in serious need of kitchen upgrade, dishwasher, sink, cabinets,etc. as well as downstairs door area to the beach has a drainage problem which makes a total mess when it rains. It was a mess when we got there and continued to be throughout the week(we did have lots of rain). Owner said he had been trying to get it fixed but it looked like it had been that way a long time. Despite all this we had a great time and the beautiful beach and the excellent fishing made up for any problems with the house and we will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Louise, for your recent stay at our home, Breathe Easy. I am very sorry the kitchen and downstairs outdoor area did not fulfill your expectations. When you emailed me on August 18, with the following comments, "...Your cottage is lovely, so beachy and comfortable and beautifully decorated…very cheerful and happy...." I assumed you were pleased with the home. In regard to the kitchen, we agree it is not state-of-the-art with granite countertops and all the accoutrements of a new kitchen, although all the appliances are either new or relatively new. We believe a 3000 sf beachfront home that comfortably accommodates 12 and accepts pets is a rarity at this price point. In regard to the drainage problem: our unique architecture, with additional ground-level living area, while convenient, also has drawbacks when it rains, as compared to the typical beachfront homes on piers. On the day you checked-in, August 17, it rained too much for Ben to edit the beach toys, boogie boards, etc., which had accumulated near the outside, downstairs door (you also mentioned the severity of the rain in your email.) We understand that the beach items do impede the drainage. It is unfortunate you did not mention the problem to Ben, since he was at the house several times after check-in to explain the tv remotes etc., instead of waiting until the end of the week to mention it. We are in a conundrum over this issue: each week do we keep the toys, chairs, fishing poles and other beach items that previous Guests have left for the next group to enjoy or do we toss them to avoid any appearance of a "mess?" Most Guests have been appreciative of the extras, but I understand your disappointment with the area being congested and contributing to the drainage problem. In the future, I will probably verify with Guests their preference to avoid this problem. Continuous, heavy rainfall, which included 4 inches in a couple of hours on August 22 (the same day you mentioned the problem to Ben), has made solving the drainage problem difficult. However, I assure you, Ben will rectify the situation. Thank you, again, for celebrating your family reunion at Breathe Easy and our apologies for any inconvenience.

Amazing beach house!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
Staying in this house was like staying at home! There were more than enough beach towels, beach mats, beach chairs, and beach toys. There were also plenty of kitchen items. The dining table was large enough to seat everyone in our group and there was a cool card table also! There was a perfect office space overlooking the ocean and the balcony was an amazing dolphin watching location. And the pool...I don't have enough positive things to say about the pool. It was like being at a resort! Once again, enough seating for our entire group and very private. The beach was literally a stone's throw away! I could talk to the rest of the group from the beach to the balcony!!

The only suggestion I have is to provide more bath towels for each bathroom. It was no big deal because there is a washer and dryer, but more would be convenient. We have already booked again for next year!

We have stayed at many houses on St. George and this was the best...

Owner's Response: Holly, thank you so much for sharing your enjoyment of Breathe Easy in your review. We are so very pleased that the pool exceeded your expectations and, personally, feel that the privacy provided by the surround of palm trees and multiple specimen-worthy oleanders, plus all the tropical vegetation and periwinkle landscaping the pool area, do provide a sense of seclusion that is rare at SGI. Also, Ben and I attempt to address all the activities that might be required at the home, and had that in mind when we provided the workspace and the game table, each of which provides expansive beach views. We appreciate the feedback on the towels and, although, we tried to provide more than the management companies, we will increase the number available when large groups stay at the house.Thank you, too, for booking for next summer; can't wait to welcome you back to Breathe Easy.
