Overview

St George Island House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 3BR/3BA Cottage with Swimming Pool, Across the Street From the Beach!

What better way to spend a vacation than in A Cottage By The Sea!

Here you can enjoy unobstructed Gulf views from every bedroom and easy access to the community beach boardwalk at across the street pricing.

Pulling into the driveway of your private beach home you immediately begin to picture yourself relaxing on the covered porch as your cares and worries slip away. You can still enjoy the amazing view as you unwind in the living area with a mounted flat panel TV, and large eat-in bar. The living area is flanked on either side by two Queen bedrooms, one with a private bathroom with access to the outdoors. A hall bathroom with tiled-shower stall opens to the East deck with easy access to the private pool and side balcony for a bird’s eye view of the residential area.

Upstairs is a spacious bedroom with two Queen beds overlooking the glistening Gulf waters. These guests will share a full bathroom with a separate vanity area and plenty of counter space for everyone! To further add to your convenience, a flat panel TV is available in every bedroom.

If you need a break from the waves and the sand, take a dip in your own private swimming pool. You can rinse off in the enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower and prepare the catch of the day in the fish cleaning area with sink, grilling it up on the park-style charcoal grill.

Dolphin watching, shelling, or simply walking for miles on the beautiful beaches of St. George Island, A Cottage By The Sea will help you create memories with family and friends for years to come!

And, don’t forget FIDO! We allow up to 1 dog under 30 lbs with advance permission.

A Cottage by the Sea, Saint George Island, FL

  • 4 of 5

The pluses are the view of the ocean was great from both levels of the house. It was ample space for 3 couples or a large family, especially with three full size bathrooms. The layout of the house was good and the kitchen was well equipped. We also enjoyed the pool and the front porch rocking chairs.

Even though the house was across the street from the ocean, the walkway to the beach was one house down making easy walking distance to the beach will all the beach equipment! There was also a recycling can there too so you don't have to drive into town to recycle. We just dropped off on our way to beach each morning.

The negatives were the house was not as luxurious as staged in the pictures. It was functional and adequate, but buyer beware. There is definitely a wiring problem as the electricity flickered throughout the day and 2 lightbulbs popped during our stay. Also one burner on the stove did not work. Unfortunately, the lot in front of the house was surveyed during our stay, so the view of the ocean will probably be obstructed (at least from the lower level).

St. George veteran

  • 3 of 5

overall, the house was fine but there were enough little things to be annoying. most of the electrical outlets are worn and plugs loose enough the phone an tablet chargers wouldn't work, had to use the ones in the kitchen where the devices were in the way of cooking. the upstairs toilet has a tank leak and only flushes half the time, an easy fix, but wasteful and annoying. the location was great and the house was otherwise as advertised.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay with us. We hope you and your family had a wonderful time on St. George Island celebrating the holiday season! We were not aware of any troubles with the electrical outlets inside the home or the upstairs bathroom, thank you so much for bringing these items to our attention. Please never hesitate to call us if there are any maintenance issues that occur during your stay, no item is considered too small! We are happy to do whatever we need to do to correct any inconvenience and only ask for the opportunity to do so. We regret that we were not informed of these issues during your stay and that they posed such an annoyance. We hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future to find that they have been resolved, and don’t forget we have a property manager on call 24/7 for any such issue and to answer any questions you may have so that you can make the most of your SGI vacation!

Great location to unwind!

  • 4 of 5

This was our second trip to St. George and our first on the west side of the island. The ground level entry made it very easy to take the dog out and come in and out with groceries, etc. There is an ocean view from each window of the house which is wonderful. It is only a few steps to the public access boardwalk that takes you to the beach. The neighborhood where the house is located is very quiet and being an avid runner it was very convenient to head out each day for a run. We spent a great deal of time at the pool which is just behind the house. The pool is gated with a lock so if you have smaller children you wont have the worry of them gaining access to the pool by accident. We had a couple small maintenance needs while we were there and the property management folks were very quick to respond and resolve the issue. We would recommend this location for anyone looking for a clean house, with close proximity to the beach and within walking distance to the center of the island.

Cottage by The Sea was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was exactly as described. The property as very clean and well maintained. This cottage was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the beach during the day and the private pool at night. The shopping in downtown Apalachicola is awesome. We purchased several unique items from Apalachicola Waters gift/antique shop. Will definitely visit the island and " The Cottage by The Sea " again in the near future. Kudos to Jamie who went out of her way to welcome us to St. George Island.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

House was just as described. Had a great time and even saw sea turtles hatch on the beach! I liked that the pool was fenced off with a lock and we didn't have to worry that the little ones might take an unauthorized swim. The outside shower was a great feature too.
