About The Owner

Hello! We are Tom and Kelly Townson and bought our house on St. George Island with the hopes of hanging onto it till retirement. We've rented it for several years and it has been a good experience for us. We still have it after putting 3 kids through college and are only 2-3 years away from our dream coming true! We love St. George and the beautiful beaches, amazing sea life and wonderful people that call the island home. It really is a magical place and we are very blessed to be here. Come see for yourself. If you need a place to relax, slow down and enjoy family or friends, this is the place to do all that. You will receive a warm welcome at Eagle's Rest.

Why The Owner chose St George Island

We love the quiet and solitude of unspoiled natural Florida. The sea oats, the piney woods, the herons, ospreys and pelicans that wade or skim over the water. The dolphins doing acrobatics out of the water for the sheer joy of it. The sound of the waves and the utter peacefulness of this place. When we bought our house, there was no one between us and Bob Sikes Cut. It has grown a lot over the last 20 years but the things that drew us here are still here and so are we.

What makes this house unique

We love shopping in Apalach, touring the Victorian homes in May, eating at the Grill and BJ's and The Blue Parrot. Some of our favorite things are walking down to Bob Sikes Cut or sitting in our rockers and watching the dolphins cavort in front of the house while having some home roasted coffee.

The beach changes for each season and it's always so interesting to see the different shells, the changes in the shoreline, the activity of the birds.

We enjoy sharing our home with our guests and knowing that it is blessing other families. We've gotten so many nice notes over the years- from honeymooners to young families to many generations vacationing together. We like to think many happy memories are made at Eagle's Rest. We'd like to invite you to be part of that story.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our week in your home--loved the location, the views and the sound of the waves. This year is our 15th on SGI- great way to enjoy God's awesome creation! Thanks for sharing!

What a wonderful beach house! We enjoyed every minute in this home. It had everything we needed for a much anticipated week at the beach! The views from the outside decks are just like the pictures - only better! The beach was perfect. The dolphins played in front of us every day. We cooked in almost every night and had everything we needed. Loved having the washer and dryer on the same floor as the bedrooms. Our little Shih Tzu loved it also! He had plenty of friends that week!

Another Restful Week at Eagle's Rest

Another Restful Week at Eagle's Rest
  • 4 of 5
We have been here many times. Every time we come it only gets better. The whole family loved the week away (including our female Golden who discovered crab hunting!)

The only thing, and I mean only, that would make this better (and maybe keep me there for 2 weeks) is better internet connectivity. But that is very minor!

Owner's Response: Hello John and family, So glad to have you back. You guys are getting to be regulars and we are thrilled to have you. We have had the internet company out in April before you arrived and had hoped this issue was resolved. We will be having them out again to get the connectivity issue dealt with. Thanks for letting me know. We'd love to have your guys for two weeks and want to do what we can to make that happen! Tom and Kelly Townson

Loved our stay on St. George Island

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed every minute of our stay in your home in the Plantation on St. George Island! The house was perfectly equipped with everything we needed. Watching the dolphins and the incredible wildlife everyday, as well as, being on the Gulf Coast with the beautiful waters and beaches was awesome; we will certainly return! We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a renewing of our vows at the Lighthouse!! Our ONLY complaint would be that there were renters there the week we were who would everyday take their kayak out and sprinkle shark bait in the waters where other vacationers were swimming and enjoying the beaches. We were afraid everyday to swim in the water for fear of an increased risk of shark close to shore. These renters caught several shark while fishing from the shoreline in the area of swimmers. Not sure what the covenants for The Plantation are, but if this is routinely allowed, unfortunately, that will deter out interest in staying in the Plantation in the future. There are so many places on the island to fish, it was very concerning that these people were doing so where others were swimming. Over all, our time there was amazing and a great week for our family. Even our teenagers loved St. George Island without all the flashy activities that other more crowed beaches can offer.

Owner's Response: Hello Kathy,
We are so glad you enjoyed your time on St. George and found the house was perfectly suited for you! We were delighted to have you and your family spend a restful time on our beautiful island and still had plenty of fun for your teenagers!
I was shocked to hear of the kayakers baiting sharks. In 21 years I've never seen that. In fact, I've just called the office at the Plantation and they confirmed that security would have responded and stopped it. The number is posted in the house by the phone. I'm so glad it didn't keep you from enjoying your time at Eagle's Rest.
We hope to have you stay with us again in the future and thank you so much for posting a review.
Best Regards,
Tom and Kelly Townson

Peace and comfort, the smell of the salt air, reading a book on the covered deck overlooking the ocean…AAH. I loved my two weeks at Eagle’s Rest. Buying fresh local catch from the fish seller and cooking it up in the spacious, well stocked kitchen, taking long, invigorating bike rides exploring the nooks and crannies of St George’s island, and sunset walks on the beach enjoying the antics of the dolphins and pelicans, was balm to the soul. I can’t wait to return and enjoy this home away from home, clean, bright, comfortable and airy. Thank you to the owners for creating such a wonderful beach retreat for your guests to relax.

Thanksgiving getaway

We had a lovely time. It was convenient to get to the beach and a short walk to the Bob Sikes cut.
The house was well equipped, comfortable, and had plenty of space for our family.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. House is nicely decorated, and if you are thinking of entertaining, you can set a nice table (unlike some beach places that are mismatched assorted leftovers). Plenty of stylish square white plates and bowls, even a waffle maker and pans to bake with, along with mixer, etc. You won't run out of coffee cups....22....and there is an initial supply of the household essentials (toilet paper, diswasher soap, etc.) so you can hit the ground running when you arrive. Plentiful supply of wine glasses and they all match.....also large bowls, stock pot, and platters. Large table will accomodate large group. Enjoy the dolphins....there are tons of them that swim by in schools. They actually get pretty close when you are in the water.....so that is a treat. Bed linens and towels are nice quality and plentiful. We will definitely plan on visiting again. We had several visitors who like geocaching....and there are evidently plenty of them in the area. Thanks so much.
