Overview

St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Your dream vacation awaits at CALM SEAS along the breathtaking coast of St. George Island. The beach is your backyard in this muti-level home with covered and open decks perfect for meditating on the beautiful sunrises over the Gulf of Mexico, soaking in some sun during the afternoon and stargazing at night. A screened porch is perfect for dining alfresco, enjoying a game of cards or just relaxing and catching up with family and friends. An additional screened patio with fish cleaning sink is under the house.

The palm and oak lined driveway lead way to the privacy of Calm Seas. Under the house are the screened fish cleaning sink, an outdoor shower and private boardwalk leads from the house to the sands of the beach.

On the first living level, a beautiful wooden library greets you with an assortment of books to meet the taste of any lover of reading. On this level is a king master bedroom and a queen master bedroom, both with views of the Gulf of Mexico and access to the beachfront deck. Also on this first level is a twin bedroom and additional full bath.

The second living level is the gathering place for family and friends. An open great room provides the perfect place to prepare today's catch in the large kitchen with gas stove top, granite counter tops and plenty of cabinet space; dine in comfort; and relax in the living area with a large flat screen TV - that is IF you can take your eyes off the breathtaking views of the beach. A game table sits next to the wet bar. The second level also hosts a large deck with both covered and open areas, and the screened porch just off the dining room. A queen bedroom with deck access and stunning views as well as a full bath are on this floor as well.

The third floor is a quiet king master bedroom retreat with a private cozy deck, large flat screen TV and large bathroom with double vanity and shower. An additional sitting/reading/meditating area is also a great place for some quiet time on the third floor.

The salty air and sandy shores await you at Calm Seas!

Perfect for a Thanksgiving Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We had a magnificent week at Calm Seas.
It was the perfect setup for grandparents and grandchildren alike - we had a little family reunion with some driving in from Atlanta, others flying in from Canada. Lots of space to explore for the little ones and a quiet twin bedroom for the teenagers. It was nice for each couple to have their own bedroom as an area to retreat to for a little quiet time and then reconvene in the Great Room. The kitchen was great for a large group and we managed to cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner for 12 in it, turkey and all. Tons of puzzles and games and even binoculars for our bird watchers. We would sit on the deck and watch for dolphins every day at cocktail hour.
It was also a great house for dogs - our Labradors were in heaven, running up and down the deserted beach every morning at sunrise, and drying off on the deck in the sun in the afternoon.
The elevator was also key for loading and unloading suitcases.
This was my first time staying inside The Plantation and I really enjoyed it, especially how much more wooded and lush it seems than the central part of the island. Many more trees, shrubs and dunes make for a more private setting. If it had been warmer, we would definitely have used the community pool.
All in all everyone in our party had a fantastic time - this is a perfect home for a large family gathering.
I hope to be back soon!

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful vacation. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck looking up at the stars and listening to the waves. It was very relaxing!! Having the elevator was excellent-we were able to take our daughter who is in a wheelchair and it was perfect. Being right on the beach was great too-our son would get up and go straight to the beach and would stay all day if we would let him. Definitely would recommend!

An Unexpected Life Treasure

  • 5 of 5
The pictures of the house do not do it justice. This house is fantastic. Much more than expected.

We drove into the area and took the scenic route. As we drove through popular Destin, I was pleased with my decision to go a little further out to SGI. Destin isn’t what it used to be. Very crowded and very tourist orientated. A couple of hours later we arrived at the island and everyone was very surprised. They say visiting SGI is like going back in time. It was indeed just that. Laid back, calm, relaxing, and magical. The hardest part was leaving.

I came with my full family, 11 people Aged 5 to 70 and some happy dogs. Everyone was blown away by the house. It fit us very comfortably. This house is designed for many sub-families or small groups to live together without killing each other. Plenty of space, plenty of things to do within the house such as games, puzzles, WiFi, TVs (no need), hours and hours of sitting on either of the decks soaking in the amazing. Plenty of things to do outside the house such as fishing, exploring, pondering, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking, body surfing, swimming, renting a scooter, visiting the state park, shopping, sightseeing, scalloping, and most importantly, nothing. Did I mention the elevator that goes through all 4 floors of the house?

Ideal for all ages and stages, the house is in an excellent spot, you get your own beach and never busy or crowded feeling. So much to do on the island and surrounding areas.

We stayed for 7 days. It was perfect. With so much to do we could have easily stayed longer, but it left us wanting more and gives is many reasons to come back to check more things off the list the next time around.

What you won't see every day from the beach: Crowded beaches, people trying to take your money, hustling and bustling, mosquitoes and black flies (we had no problems at all), mega commercial businesses (I think there is a subway on the island), mad angry zombies.

What you could/will see every day from the beach: Starfish, dolphins, sea turtles baby sea turtles, various fish, crabs, various amounts of sea shells, incredible stars at night, amazing cloud formations, and happy people.

Working with Carla was great. She made the whole experience a lot of fun. There were no surprises other than good ones. We look forward to coming back, this place is a gem.

Wonderful beach house

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property where we have stayed several times. The beach and the view are fantastic, the community pool is nice, and the island has a great beach charm. When I daydream of going to the beach, I think about going here.
