NEW BEACHFRONT LISTING! ~A~ TURTLE'S DREAM

St George Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath - Gulf Views Galore!

A Turtle's Dream is as close to the Gulf of Mexico's water’s edge as you can get! Any closer and you'll get wet. The large beach facing deck has covered and uncovered areas, with ample furnishings for all, to either enjoy your morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf, read a book, sunbathe, or watch the dolphins swim. The white sandy beaches of St. George Island are just steps away. When you can manage to steal your gaze away from the stunning view of the Gulf, gather inside this warm and inviting home featuring elegant woodwork throughout, glowing heart pine floors, and cypress tongue and groove walls. The great room with lovely beamed ceilings and built in bookshelves around a gas fireplace is the central gathering place for meals and catching up with family and friends. The well appointed kitchen has everything you could possible need to prepare the day's catch or your family's favorite recipes. New stainless steel appliances, a stand alone ice maker and lots of extras make this kitchen a joy to be in. An extra refrigerator is also provided in the storage room under the house. Enjoy family tournaments at the pool table alongside a wall of glass doors showing off the amazing Gulf views. Or retreat to the quiet respite of one of four bedrooms. Two bedrooms with king size beds face the beach with sliding glass doors to the deck and stunning Gulf views, as well as private baths with double vanities. The third bedroom also has a king size bed and a private bath, and the fourth bathroom is convenient for both the fourth bedroom featuring a triple bunk bed, and the great room. All beds invite you for a restful night's sleep or lazy afternoon nap with new Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. A pack-n-play is available to make things a little easier for parents.

Downstairs under the house is a large concrete parking pad with fish cleaning sink, picnic table and outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Flat screen televisions and blu-ray players are in each bedroom and in the living room.

The Best Beach Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
Wow, was what was exclaimed by all family members as they walked thru the house. The view of the ocean was incredible. We have never stayed in a house so well appointed with what we needed, including a welcome basket! Carla gets 10 stars for being the most accommodating and friendliest VRBO'er. The house was very clean, great beds and linens, wonderful porch furniture, and very attractively decorated. We can't wait to come back!

A Great Stay

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at A Turtle's Dream. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked. The house was well-located on the island - about a mile from restaurants and shops. We really enjoyed the open floor plan and the pool table! We also liked that a portion of the deck was covered so we could enjoy it in the heat of the day and when it rained. The owner was responsive to all of our questions. We were pleased to find beach chairs and sand toys in the storage area. In all, it was a great place to stay!

Best house we've ever stayed in!

We have used VRBO on several occasions in different areas of the country. This was by far the nicest, most well-equipped house we have rented. The house was very clean and had more pots and pans than a small restaurant. The washer and dryer are full-sized which is so important at the beach. We loved the layout of the house. We had a great time relaxing with a billiards tournament every evening after dinner. The storage room and extra refrigerator and freezer downstairs was a huge help. Although every room had a TV, I don't think we ever turned one on. Super vacation!

A Turtle Dream a dream for all

  • 5 of 5
A Turtle's Dream is just a perfect house overlooking the beach. All the rooms were just perfect. The kitchen has all the ample room to cook for a large family like ours. The back covered porch and table is where we had our family meals listing to the surf and watching the waves. After a long day on the beach and a full day of fishing, it was a comfort and a good nights sleep in the comfortable king beds. Rested and ready for a new day of excitement or just a good book with a glass of wine. What a great place we will return for another stay, thats for sure.
