St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

6 bedroom with private dock

Unparalleled views ofthe Apalachicola Bay and St. George Sound from this beautiful 6 bedroom home in St. George Plantation. La Vista is thoughtfully designed to compliment the natrual beauty of its serene environment. La Vista's private boat dock is reserved exclusively for guests of this spacious home. From the dock, you are a stone's throw from Bob Sikes Cut: the gateway to the Gulf of Mexico and the most popular fishing spot in the area. So you'll want to bring your boat! Or fish from the dock or the beaches of St. George Island.

The first living floor of La Vista features a large open commons area including two living rooms - one with large flat screen TV and one with a gas fireplace, dining room, a spacious kitchen and large pantry/laundry room. Stunning Bay views through large picture windows can be seen from each of those rooms. There is plenty of room for family and friends to spread out while still having the togetherness of your precious vacation time. Also on the first living floor are a queen master bedroom with private bath, an additional queen bedroom with bay views through the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck, and an additional full bathroom. A large deck spans the bayside of the house for outdoor dining, sunbathing, meditating on the magical sunsets over the Bay, and stargazing at night.

The second living floor has four bedrooms: one king bedroom and one queen bedroom both with large picture windows and glorious Bay views; one additional queen bedroom and one bunk bedroom. Two full bathrooms are also on this floor, one with a jetted tub.

A large screened patio under the house is perfect for dining alfresco, a game of cards, or just catching up with friends and family. An outdoor shower and fish cleaning sink are also under the house. The naturally beautiful and uncrowded beaches of St. George Island are a short 10 minute walk to the Gulf side of the Island, or load the car and drive over in no time!

A charcoal grill is available under the house for preparing the day's catch!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned home from our vacation at La Vista. What a wonderful experience. We have been going to St. George Island for 20+ years and this is the first time we have stayed on the bay. It was absolutely the most amazing time. La Vista is the perfect house for a large family. There is plenty of room for everyone and also a great deck. The pier was one of the favorite places. My grandson and sons fished and crabbed every day. Caught enough fish and crab for dinner one night. The children were able to wade in the water without any problem and caught blue crab with a net.
The house is decorated and equipped better than any I have stayed in before. The bathrooms are very big and beautifully tiled. The price is very reasonably priced and is worth it.
W hope to come back in the spring for another vacation and will definitely want to stay at La Vista. Carla is wonderful to work with and is always available.
Thank you for an amazing vacation.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We love this house. This is our second year staying in La Vista and hopefully many more years to come. In fact, we plan to go back in the fall. The house is immaculate with plenty of room for everyone. The furnishings and decor are what you find in a nicer home or more like your own home and not like a typical beach themed condo. The kitchen is fully stocked with anything that you could potentially need. There's two refrigerators which is nice for the extra storage and there's a huge island for more food prep space. It also sports a massive laundry room. Now let's go outside! There's a screened in patio area for dining or just hanging out. The carport is well lighted and a lot of parking space. The private dock is our favorite part of this property though. We can catch our bait fish from the dock with our cast nets and then since we're so close to "the cut" the red fish and sea trout fishing off the end of the dock was outstanding. There's no reason to even think about chartering a bay fishing trip when some of the best fishing on the island is right here on this dock. There's plenty of room too for the entire family to fish off the dock and in fact our 3 year old niece caught her very first fish from this dock. Dolphins also frequent this dock every evening at sunset which always delight our family. Then if all this isn't enough this house is located within the gated plantation community with access to the community pool and fitness center. The property manager was in contact with us from the very start and is very nice and helpful. Could not have asked for more. See you again in the fall!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve and Kristy. We are delighted that you have found the perfect vacation home for your family in La Vista. Hope to see you in the fall!

La Vista's dock is our 'go-to' spot for fishing. When the house is vacant, we frequently take the boat over and fish around the dock.

Heaven!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place is awesome. From the spacious home with everything and more in the kitchen, lovely bedrooms, room and more room to spread out. We only had to walk to get to the boardwalk to the beach, and the fish were fun to catch from the dock. I would go back here in a minute with all the family. We had dad and this three daughters with husbands and niece and nephew. Clean and loved the plantation location. Seafood was so good at the restaurants, lighthouse was fun, and they even had a game of put-put back over the bridge. Carla is a peach to deal with. She really cares about her renters.

It was one of our most relaxing, restful vacations ever! Carla was amazing to work with!!
