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 3200 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; new completely remodeled, well-equipped kitchen, with Viking 48" six-burner range with double oven, oversized refrigerator and farm sink; 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 on the beach or 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 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.

About Ben Mathewson

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

Ben Mathewson purchased this house in 2009

Why Ben Mathewson chose St George Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Early Summer Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the property, the amenities, and the owners! It was a wonderful week, and the house was just perfect for us. My favorite part (if I had to choose) was the pool area. We love to cook, so the newly done kitchen was also great fun for us. The house was large enough to spread out, and we all could be together, or find our own little spot. The porch was my early-morning treat, with my coffee. Wish I could of stayed longer. I will definitely rent this house again! Thanks to Ben and Sharon for making the vacation stress free.

Fantastic Beach House!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best beach house we've ever rented. There were six adults and five children. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The upstairs living area was huge. We put all the kids downstairs where they had their own bedrooms, bath and living area. The pool was great. There was plenty of shade for those who don't like to bake in the sun. Our son-in-law couldn't wait to get his hands on the huge grill. Palm tress surround the pool area, so there is complete privacy. The house has all the amenities you could ask for. Plenty of everything. They even provided paper towels, toilet tissue, garbage bags and even k-cups for the Keurig. The owners were great. They brought us shrimp one day which was delicious. The floors were all tile, which we loved. No yucky carpet. Walk right out on the beach from the downstairs area. We loved St. George Island. We practically had the beach to ourselves. The kids found all kinds of shells and star fish. Great place for families who just want to be together, have a great time and get away from all the hustle and bustle. This is not Destin or Panama City. The dolphins gave us great shows jumping up and flapping their fins. We didn't want to leave, but we will be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Carolyn, for your wonderful remarks! There is nothing more rewarding as vacation-home owners than to know that your Guests enjoyed themselves. Ben, especially, appreciates all the positive comments concerning the pool area, which he keeps trying to improve each year. Thank you, again, and hope your family will be able to return soon!

Second year in a row... Keeps gettin' better!!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited the island and stayed at Breathe Easy for the second year in a row. It was wonderful. THIS IS THE MOST RELAXING PLACE IN THE WORLD!!!

I can't give enough praise to this place. The island is beautiful. The folks are friendly. And this home is SPECTACULAR!!! It's everything you could ask for and more.

We really enjoyed the fresh shrimp! (Great perk!) We saw many more dolphins this year than last year. At one point, it was like they were swimming with us. They were breaching the water within yards of us. Nature at her most beautiful. And if you want awesome, sit on the beach and watch the sun rise. Breath taking! Or sit on the beach under the moonlight. Serene. We spent alot of time in the pool or sitting under the new pergola by the pool. Love that addition!

If you are looking for a place to relax... reeeeally relax, this is it.

Sharon & Ben, thank you so much for sharing your piece of paradise.

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful vacation at "Breath Easy." In my opinion the owners really go above and beyond to make you feel like guests and not "renters." The little touches of soap products, plenty of paper goods, bottled water, coffee, plenty of towels were all noted and appreciated - you don't get those things with the rental companies. The house is well-made, you can't hear conversations through the walls! The ac works great! We had a couple of minor little maintenance things come up and the owner was right there immediately to address them. My husband was very impressed when the power went out (as often happens on this island) and owner was investigating a generator within an hour of it being out. Truly excellent hosts of a lovely home.

40th anniversary family trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a wonderful week at Breathe Easy with our entire family. From the moment we walked in the door, we all felt at home. The house is very spacious allowing all of us to have our own space, but it has wonderful gathering spots where you can all be together. The pool area is fantastic. We had so much fun there. Beach access is great. Watching the dolphins and crabs as well as shelling entertained all of us. Ben and Sharon are great hosts. Ben was readily available if needed but totally respectful of our privacy. They provided start up paper products, bottled water, laundry supplies and as a welcoming gift the best shrimp you will ever eat! We would highly recommend this home. We don't know how you could possibly do better any where else.

P.S. Be sure and try the grilled grouper sandwich at The Blue Parrot, the BBQ at the Beach Pit, and the pizza at BJ's.

State park located at east end of Island provides pristine natural habitat for shelling and enjoying nature. Marine nature-center also provides an insight into the aquatic life pertinent to the area.

The quaint city of Apalachicola provides local shops and restaurants, with a true flavor of Old Florida.
