St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

We describe the vacation rental house located on West 10th Street, Saint George Island (SGI) as off the beaten path but close to the water because it is located on an interior lot one lot north of the primary East/West road that runs the length of the SGI. It is only 2.5 short blocks from the Gulf Front and 1long block from a Bay Front park. The house, built on pilings, has 4 bedrooms (sleeps 10), 2 bathrooms, central open living/dining room and kitchen. The house has 1624 square feet (SF) of heated and cooled living space, 224 SF covered screened porch off two of the bedrooms (one has a king bed and the other has two sets of bunk beds for children), 792 SF deck facing the street which the third bedroom (queen bed) opens on and the fourth bedroom (queen bed) opens onto a smaller 112 SF back deck. There is also a 10 by 28 foot boat or motorhome storage area under the house with about an 11 foot clearance. There is ample off street parking for four or more vehicles.

Cliff has visited the area since his early childhood, first visiting St. George Island shortly after the bridge opened in 1965. He and Denise had their first date on the coast and relocated to the area in 1977 buying a bay front home across the bridge in Eastpoint. Their two daughters grew up enjoying the Island and the surrounding area. Throughout their professional lives, both Denise and Cliff have been active in many aspects of community life in this bit of heaven nicknamed, 'The Forgotten Coast'. As Denise likes to say, 'It was never the Forgotten Coast to us, it's home!'

Cliff Butler purchased this house in 2011

The opportunity and benefits of owning a vacation rental home on St George Island came together at the right time as we were starting a new phase of our lives. It gives us the opportunity to share what we have enjoyed for so many years with our children, grandchildren, extended family, friends and others we have yet to meet. We plan to use a share of the profits to support nonprofits such as Rotary, Wounded Warrior Project and related organizations.

Observing gorgeous sunrises, sunsets as well as other related weather events are some of the most unique benefits that can be enjoyed while staying at our property. There are many other opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of our area from the beaches to our bay, river and forests. It's fun to watch all the creatures that make their home here. You do not need to even leave the deck to listen to and watch birds or to find the constellations in the night sky. No city lights dim the stars on the island. The home is newly tiled throughout. Open the windows on cool nights and listen to the surf!

Great Family Vacation!

Great home for a large family (2 adults and 5 kiddos!). Was very comfortable for all of us. Well equipped, especially in the kitchen. Charcoal grill out back. Good TVs and DVD player for a rainy day, plus some games etc. Less than five minute walk to the beach, and the beach is beautiful and not crowded at all. Owner is very responsive and does everything that they can to make sure everything is OK for you. Only complaint is that the cleaning service could do a better job when they come through before your checkin....we had to do some touching up on a few things. Definitely overall an incredible bang for your buck for a great family vacation!

We had a wonderful week-end at The Last Straw! It was perfect for our family of 9. We were there to attend a wedding, so we didn't get to relax and enjoy the house and beach totally. The house was clean, and had everything we needed for a great week-end. We were very satisfied and would certainly recommend it to friends and family.
