St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Home (Sleeps 11-12) On One Acre Of Oceanfront Property.

Beautiful beach house in a breath-taking gated community.

Feel like you've stepped back in time as you drive through Apalachicola with its quaint shops, restaurants, and shrimp/oyster boats. There's lots to see and do (and eat!) in this historic fishing town. Next, head across two loooong bridges, over some of the best oyster beds in the world, taking you further out into the gulf. As you approach St. George Island, the historic lighthouse and museum grow on the horizon to greet you. The island offers a pristine state park on the east end, a nice town center with a few restaurants, and the plantation gated-community on the west end. You'll immediately see the striking white sand beaches on the gulf and remarkable marsh-scapes on the bay side. Your home-away-from-home is west. After stopping to check-in at the gate, drive in and welcome the quiet serenity and peace as you drive through the beautiful landscape of The Plantation - winding around tennis courts, swimming pools, bike paths, and a private airport runway. Your destination is amidst beautiful homes on acre lots, at the end of a quiet street, surrounded by sand dunes. You're excitement grows as you realize you are not staying next to the beach, but on the beach! A tropically land-scaped acre of heavenly beachfront property plus a beautiful luxury 4-bedroom home to spoil you and your family.

Swim on Inn has 2 King beds, 1 Queen, 2 Twin bunk beds and a twin day bed in 4 spacious bedrooms.

Cooks will be delighted with the wonderfully outfitted kitchen. And with 2 separate living areas, everyone will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their beach vacation.

Decks on every level of the house, each with an inspiring view of the white sand and clear water, and a ground floor deck with gazebo. Start watching for the dolphins, sea turtles, and your other marine neighbors.

No condos, no crowds, just you and a picturesque slice of nature.

By the time you arrive, you will feel the stress melt away. So much to do... or so little... your choice. Swim on Inn - and enjoy your vacation!

Manager, Swim On Inn purchased this house in 2013

Why Manager, Swim On Inn chose St George Island

Our family has always loved the beach. We love those little unique spots...the quiet and the laid back. St. George is just that type of island. With its miles of walking and bicycle paths, beautiful sand beaches and lack of high rises and bumper-to-bumper traffic...we knew this was The place for us! We have found the island is truly a place to slow down from our very hectic lives and spend quality time with our family and friends. We feel truly blessed to have found our home on the island and we hope you find the peace and serenity we do when you visit our home away from home.

We booked a family of 10 (six adults, twin grandsons aged 2 1/2 and two granddaughters aged 8 & 10) during the Christmas holidays. The owner is friendly, accommodating and takes pride in their home The home is split into generous sleeping and living areas. The kitchen is open and well equiped and became the central gathering place together with the large porch/lanai. The beach is steps away and although slightly cool at that time of the year, the kids swam regularly. The Plantation also offers miles of bike and hiking trails. Good restaurants nearby. I would highly recommend this home for a quiet family getaway.

This was for our family reunion and it could have been better. It quiet and beautiful right on the ocean. It gave us all time to catch with each other. The home was perfect with 2 living areas and a great kitchen and porches. It has everything you will need.

SwimOnInn was a wonderful choice for our 2014 family vacation. The owner was extremely accommodating and the home graciously equipped with anything you could possibly need for your stay at the beach. What a blessing having the beautiful waters of the Gulf awaiting you as you exit the walkway from the home!!! We experienced daily shows from the dolphins! This was another bonus for us!! The weather could not have been more pleasant either; always a nice breeze!! We also enjoyed the three levels of balconies. Each family could enjoy privacy on one these spacious decks. Cooking was also pleasurable in this modern kitchen and the nearby restaurants were wonderful as well! Anyone looking for a multi-level spacious stay on St. George Island should definitely book SwimOnInn.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Swim On Inn. We stayed two weeks and never had any problems. The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The accessibility to the beach was easy and my girls loved playing on their boogie boards. We saw a lot of dolphin right passed the sandbar! I recommend staying at Swim On Inn!!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Swim on Inn. The house is well laid out for adults and children with comfortable furnishings, multiple entertainment areas, and an excellent kitchen for those who enjoy cooking. It feels like a home away from home. And the beach is perfect!
