Overview

St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

A dream come true on Apalachicola bay!

Fish Tales, on the Apalachicola Bay, offers magnificent sunsets, fishing from the extended dock, and is located in a tropical paradise (also known as St. George Island).

The one story home on pilings was built in 2002 and features 3 bedrooms; one king and 2 queen beds, 2 upstairs bathrooms. The master bedroom / bathroom includes a walk-in closet.

The spacious living area offers comfortable seating for six plus individuals. Although the home features centralized heating and air conditioning, an electric fireplace for ambiance completes the cozy picture during the cool of winter.

The dining area seats 6 with additional seating for 3 more at the breakfast bar.

Covered decks, north and south, add an additional 700 square feet to the 1500 square foot house. The bay view porch extends the entire length of the house and includes modern outdoor wicker furniture.

The lower level of the home houses a fully furnished screened Florida room. Parking accommodates 3 bays. The circular driveway through the beautifully landscaped oleanders, palms, hibiscus, lantana and other tropical plants, allows you to easily park and move your cars and/or boats.

The fully furnished kitchen includes all utensils, a microwave, an oven, and a new refrigerator and dishwasher. The home is complete with a washer and dryer, an entry hall closet, and a utility room.

Great spot on the water

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for a comfortable home to enjoy the Northern Florida weather and don't care about the jumping beach scene, St George island is the place to go. The manager, Ken, is welcoming and easy to work with. We enjoyed fishing off the dock, walking the dog a number of times during the day sometimes on the beach, the sunshine and warmth. Some of the furnishings are looking tired and a little fussy, but then I lean more to the minimal. We didn't use the Florida room at all. The place was clean and had most of what we needed. The view out the bay side was outstanding and I never got tired of sitting on the deck. A nice friendly area for a restful time.

Though the house is located on the bay, the beach is only a 3 block walk or drive. The white beach sand is perfect for building sandcastles or taking a long stroll, and the gentle waves are ideal for beach boarding, crabbing, fishing, and swimming.

Our 28 mile island also offers a bike path which runs the length of the island. Bicycles & kayaks are available from multiple vendors. From a kayak, you can get up close with dolphins, bald eagles and ospreys, or view a stunning sunset from the water.

The center of the island hosts Lighthouse Park with a children's playground, pavillions, basketball court, a lighthouse museum & gift shop, and of course the lighthouse with a stunning view from the top. The State Park occupies the eastern end of the island and offers camping, kayaking, hiking, bird watching, and a gorgeous stretch of white sand beach.

Another new museum is located just across the bridge to the mainland. The Apalachicola National Estuary Research Reserve visitor center is a fascinating facility for the entire family. With multiple aquariums of local fish, theatre, and exhibits, it's well worth the trip.

The island is an uncrowded, quiet, get-away and has become a second home to an ever growing population of snowbirds. Winter visitors will find that they are enthusiastically welcomed into the St. George community. The churches, businesses, and community organizations are always glad to make your acquaintance and welcome your support.

Fresh seafood is always available on the island (or catch your own!), and there's always a bait and tackle store open.
