About Dr. David 'Bucky' Wagmer

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.

Why Dr. David 'Bucky' Wagmer chose St George Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great return trip!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at Bucky's Beacch Haus and just as wonderful as before. This time I was able to stay for two weeks of island magic. House is perfectly located for short walk- 3 min. tops - to the beach and good exercise walking on the bike path out front. View of the ocean from the large back deck was wonderful. Had no needs as everything was provided in the unit and all in perfect working condition. Owner is excellent to work with and great communication. This will not be my last stay at Bucky's. Already looking forward to another visit. Love SGI. Thanks Bucky for sharing your home.

Bucky's Beach Haus is the best!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Bucky's Beach Haus. We have stayed at many rentals on the island, and when they say "full kitchen equipment", we've learned to take that with a grain of salt. We cook all our meals except for lunch, and we've always brought lots of pans and utensils, since the kitchens usually leave a lot to be desired. This time the stuff we brought stayed in the bags. There was an excellent range of equipment for a wide variety of cooking and that alone made our stay excellent. The size of the house fit the two of us and our two dogs to a tee. The deck was awesome, you could either sit in the sun or shade of the overhang. The wifi was incredibly fast! Faster than in our home, darn it! The beach was not even 5 minutes away, and there was a nice view of the ocean from our deck. The bike path was right outside the house, which made it great for getting on the bikes and going. We would love to come back next year again. Thanks very much for renting the house to us!

Great home in a perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Bucky's Beach Haus! It was a perfect location with a short walk to the beach and a great bike path out the front door. SGI is a wonderful place to vacation and this was a wonderful, quiet place to stay. Would definitely go back to Bucky's!

Relaxing and fun week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this beach house. The property was clean and the kitchen was equipped to cook anything you would want. The furniture was comfortable and the deck has plenty of seating. The beach is a short walk away. To our delight, it was not at all crowded. We are especially grateful that we could bring our dog, and he had a fun time chasing crabs. We enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of St. George Island, spending most of our week just relaxing on the beach. Bucky was great to work with, and we have already recommended his beach house to friends.

Nice vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The house was very comfortable and clean. It was also nicely decorated. It had just about everything we needed. A few more towels would be nice. There were no dish towels. it had a nice view, and was a short walk from the beach. This was the first time we visited St. George Island, and we liked it very much, it was so relaxing. We would definitely recommend the house, and we would also stay here again.

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.
