We have had our home on the island since 1972 when I was a coach and administrator at Florida State University. Our children were raised on the island (we spend most weekends here) and they still call it home. We completely remodeled and enlarged the property in the early 2002. It is virtually a new home. We currently live in Statesboro, GA where I have retired as Associate Professor of Sport Law and Athletics Director at Georgia Southern University. I have also retired from my own athletics consulting business am a licensed real estate broker. My wife has retired from being a manager at an electrical coop. We have four children, all married, all college graduates, and all able to pay their own house payments.....We are in love with the island and hope to spend much more time here in our retired years. I am an avid fisherman and can tell you where to fish and when to fish and my wife knows every restaurant and every shop in the area. Please feel free to ask out advice about anything pertaining to your vacation.

Dr. David 'Bucky' Wagmer purchased this house in 1972

This property is a stand alone home on pilings located on a half acre lot. We have a view of the gulf and we are a short walk (150 yards approx) from the waters edge. It is super clean and well maintained. Very comfortable for four but can be used for six. We are located less than a mile from the middle of the island and the stores and restaurants. We are located on the walking path that circles the central part of the island.

As a stand alone property, it is peaceful, quiet, and has all the amenities to make you vacation a success. Including WiFi.

The island and the surrounding area is very special,quaint, bountiful, with the most beautiful beaches with the most splender than nature can provide.

This beach house has everything you could want in a vacation home to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The house is very clean and well-maintained, the kitchen is well-stocked. It's just a short, easy walk to the beach. Communication with the owner was excellent. We look forward to staying here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

I loved this place. It was bigger than I expected and all the amenities. We have dogs and they loved the beach. The views are great...I loved sitting on the deck watching the dolphins. The beach was super close and easy walking distance. I will definitely stay there again. Thank you for sharing your home with our family!

Best week ever!

We rented this as a last minute substitute for a larger home that had hidden fees. Wow were we thrilled! 3 minute walk to beach access, fully stocked with pots (big and small) cast iron skillets, assorted glasses ( from water to wine to martini), indoor grill (w/ down draft), appliances, outdoor grill, and an out door shower( so great that it has inspired me to consider adding one at home). This 2 bed , 2 bath home has everything you could need in a vacation home!

Gorgeous Vacation Home with Everything You Need and Beautiful Beaches

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This place was awesome. It had everything we were looking for in a vacation home. I took the wife and two kids and it was worth every penny. The home itself has two rooms each with a bath/shower and the living quarters had plenty of space and a cozy place to eat on the huge kitchen island. The view was great even though it was second tier from the beach. The house has everything you need with nothing to spare from the blender to the bath towels to the outside shower to wash your feet. The beach is a 3 min walk from the house and the sand is gorgeous. The island had little to no traffic unlike places like destin or hilton head.That was one of my favorite feature is very little traffic. Theres bike rentals, fishing gear rentals, and at the other end of the island is a nature preserve where you can go on the beach with virtually no one in site. Feel like sea fishing the local charters will take you out to the ocean or stay in the shallow bay and fish. The local seafood restaurants were outstanding with plenty to choose from. Take a short trip to Apalachicola across the bridge and enjoy the shopping on rainy days and more seafood restaurants. Our family created some awesome memories to last a lifetime. The owner, Bucky, knows how to treat his guests and we look forward in coming back every year.

Great beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This was a wonderful unit for our beach getaway. House was extremely clean and well maintained. Just a very short walk to the beach access - maybe 3 min. and located on the bike path for some good fast walk exercise. Had everything in the home to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Actually was a little bigger than appeared in photos. We were delightfully surprised.

Communication with the owner was outstanding. All in all a truly great value and hope to visit again. This was my 12th year to SGI so needless to say I will return.

From Tallahassee Take US 319 South to US 98 to East Point turn left on St George Island Causway to dead end on island. Turn right on West Gulf Beach Drive to 8th street. 816 is third house on the left. Enjoy the 5th ranked beach in the US and the quaint fishing villages of Apalachicola and Carrabelle FL. at the mouth of beautiful Apalachicola and Carrabelle Rivers. Pristine open beaches for 13 miles of State Park. Walk the beach with no sign of civilization. Lush saltwater estuaries fed by freshwater rivers. 75 miles of State Forest surrounds mouth of Apalachicola River. New estuary museum is a must to see to enjoy the culture of the island and the nature of the estuary. Crystal clear Port St. Joe Bay full of fish and scallops in the summer. Adjoined by uninhabited St. Vincent island on the west and nearly uninhabited Dog Island to the East. Rated the fifth best beaches in the US. Great local seafood resturants, quaint villages, outstanding gourmet restaurants, the Apalachicola Bay produces 98% of all the oysters harvested in Florida. All seafood is fresh and delicious. Named the forgotten coast, no high rises, less commercialization than Florida beaches near larger cities. A true diamond in the rough. Breath taking sunrises and sunsets. Few lights so stars above the Gulf sea are 100 fold more than you would imagine. Walk the beach at night with the sound of the surf and the magnificent show of the stars. Gentle breezes cool the beach most of the year. Just enough activities to keep the children happy while the family enjoys the true splendor and enjoyment of the beach. Obviously we are in love with the island and the surrounding area, you will be too.
