We are a retired couple who love fishing and the beach. Our beach cottage is clean and airy. It is best enjoyed by senior citizens since it has no stairs and few steps.

Owner's Response: We were very proud that Nicole and John chose the Salty Seagull for their honeymoon. Since they were our first newly weds, we were especially delighted. St George is a very special place; it is perfect for that romantic get away.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Our experience with the Salty Seagull was very positive. It was very clean and well stocked and close to the lighthouse, shops and restaurants on the island. We enjoyed the easy access to the beach, the bikes, golf cart and hot tub very much. The owners are super friendly and very accommodating. We had a very pleasant visit on the island and appreciate so much the friendliness and courtesy shown to us by the owners. We highly recommend this place.

PERFECT FAMILY BEACH STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five had a wonderful stay at the Salty Seagull. It is literally right across the street from the beach. The beach was beautiful and the fishing was great. The kids loved the hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. Mr. and Mrs. Stoeckin could not have been nicer. We can't wait to return.

Great beach house! Very comfortable and larger than we anticipated. Owners provided everything we needed for our stay-- even a washer and dryer. The electric golf cart was especially helpful. Thanks Peter and Sara for your hospitality.

OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
We have been visiting SGI for many years. After reserving a property with one of the local companies, they called to tell us we could not stay there as the owner would be there that weekend. We checked on VRBO and found the Salty Seagull. The owners called me right away and confirmed the dates. They met us at the house and showed us everything. They made us feel like family! The golfcart and hot tub were great. We plan to visit again as soon as we can. We appreciate them opening their home to us.

THIS WAS A FAMILY VACAION THAT WILL BECOME A FAMILY TRADITION...WE CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK!!!!!

This was a family vacaion that will become a family tradition...We can't wait to come back!!!!!
  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to St. George Island and by far the most wonderful experience we have EVER had at the beach. The beach house is BEAUTIFUL and the most well organized, comfortable accomodations you could possibly hope for. Everything in this home is first class. The owners have thought of everything...even sunglasses and sun hats!!! We felt like we had walked into a resort for the RICH AND FAMOUS!
The beach is wonderful with lots of shells and Dolphins everywhere!!! This must be their favorite vacation spot as well because we saw schools of them daily playing and frolicking in the water. Our kids went out in a small boat and the Dolphins swam right up to the boat. They were thrilled to be so close to such magnificent animals. It was amazing!
This was our first time actually staying on the beach. You can go back and forth from beach to house all day long without breaking a sweat. Then when you are ready to chill out at the house, there is an outdoor shower to rinse away the sand and the most beautiful Hot Tub just waiting to bubble you into paradise!!!
I don't know about you but we are usually ready to come home by the last few days of a vacation. NOT THIS TIME!!! The kids were praying for car trouble :) All we heard on the way home is, " can we come back!!!!!!!".
The restaurants and shops are great in town but we were ready to get back to the beach whenever we ventured out. Even when it rained, the beach was wonderful.
If you have never been to St George, you need to put it on your bucket list and the Salty Seagull is the place to stay... all on one level, spotless and first class. We are seniors but we took our grandchildren with us and they loved it. Not once did they complain of being bored.
The only bad thing about our stay was having to LEAVE to come home!!!!
THANKS SALTY SEAGULL FOR THE BEST VACATION EVER!

Owner's Response: What more can be said! It's all about family fun at the beach.

Map

St. George Island, Eastpoint and Apalachicola are very special places on the Florida Panhandle, known to locals as The Forgotten Coast. Come and experience the quiet and relaxing pace of Old Florida. SGI is the perfect place for your next beach vacation! The main attraction on this thin barrier island is the over twenty-two miles of white sand beaches. You can enjoy walking on the beach, shelling, fishing, birding, boating, kayaking, hiking and any of the other water sports in the surf, on the bay or up the rivers that flow into the bay. SGI is truly an outdoor sportsman’s paradise. In addition, the area offers several golf courses within easy driving distance. Unlike the highly developed coastal beaches, our area is still secluded and beautiful. We lack the high rise buildings, carnival rides, traffic jams, maddening crowds.

You will be pleased to know that Dr. Beach has ranked Saint George Island in the Top 10 US Beaches for both 2011 and 2012.

The area surrounding St. George Island is rich in preserved public lands. The St. George Island State Park, which covers one-third of island, is only one of many state parks and national wildlife areas that you can visit.

Discover our simple pleasures combined with natural treasures - beachcombing, outstanding bird watching, kayaking, world-class fishing on the Apalachicola Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, breathtaking sunsets and abundant wildlife. On our beach in the spring you have an opportunity to see a mother sea turtle make a nest and lay her eggs or in the late summer to watch the baby turtles emerge and start on their journey to the sea. Every day is different and there is almost always something exciting to watch.

You can climb to the top of the Cape St George Lighthouse and learn about its fascinating history at the Visitor Center and Lighthouse Keeper's Museum.

If you like to fish, you have found the right spot. Whether you hire a charter boat or fish right off the bridge, St. George Island and Apalachicola Bay offer some of the best fishing in Florida. Across the bridge in Eastpoint you will see oystermen going out and coming back with their boats full of oyster bags. This is the center of oyster harvesting activity. You will want to visit the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve. The modern new building is located on the left as you approach the bridge to SGI. It houses many fascinating exhibits specific to our coastal and marine environment. The exhibits and fish tanks are a favorite for young and old alike. Then it’s a short ride over the next bridge to historic Apalachicola, in the heart of Franklin County where you can enjoy many turn-of-the-century buildings, antique shops, art galleries and award-winning cuisine.

The historical town of Apalachicola is the area’s other major attraction. In this quaint coastal town, you will find a still-working waterfront, plenty of maritime history, and lots of restaurants serving the freshest seafood on the coast, each in its distinctive style. You can tour the award-winning historic district and/or shop for clothing and gifts in the one-of-a-kind boutiques.

You’ll feel history when you breathe the salty air of Apalachicola Bay and walk the canopy-shaded sidewalks of Apalachicola’s distinguished Historic District replete with the regal homes of past sea captains, river pilots and sponge divers. Apalachicola's diverse and colorful past remains visible today as you stroll along the wide tree-lined streets where picturesque Victorian homes display the charm of years gone by. Once the third largest port on the Gulf of Mexico, Apalachicola echoes with memories of an era once filled with steamboats and schooners, railroads and lumber mills. There are more than 900 historic homes, buildings and sites in the city’s Historic District. Apalachicola is considered a “distinctive destination” by the National Trust for Historic Preservation based on its unique character, charm and dedication to historic preservation.

Maritime Culture

Apalachicola’s maritime culture is best reflected along its working waterfront. There you’ll see bustling seafood houses, weather-worn shrimp boats and stately brick buildings that once served as 19th century chandleries, net factories and warehouses. Eclectic boutiques, galleries and restaurants are tucked into nooks and crannies throughout the historic downtown commercial district. The town features meticulously restored historical homes and hotels.
