About Raymond Gray
We retired from medical contract work to begin growing organic vegetables on a generational farm in Tennessee.
Raymond Gray purchased this house in 2013
Why Raymond Gray chose St George Island
We discovered this area 20 years ago and after traveling the country as contract RNs, we always seemed to return here year after year. St. George Island is so unique in that it NEVER fails to excite us as we drive over the 4 mile bridge that is suspended above the most beautiful Apalachicola Bay.
Having rented houses for so many years on the island, we feel like we know what makes a rental exceptional and we certainly know what can make one not so great. During preparation of this home, we strived to ensure that everything we did would make it stand out, with emphasis on comfort, pleasure, and providing a stress-free and fun experience.
What makes this house unique
The moment we set foot on the property, it was as if we had stepped onto a Tarzan movie set [ the old B&W series was filmed at Wakulla Springs about an hour's drive and it makes for a great day trip]. You are surrounded by lush tropical vegetation ,ferns, aloes, large palms, and towering old growth pine trees backed by untouched, protected wetlands. The home is centrally located on the island with the Gulf and the bay minutes away. You benefit from both the Gulf breezes and the view and sounds of the bay.
