Newly renovated house in St. George Island Plantation, a private gated community. Only 1.5 blocks from the beach, Lefty's Jewel has beautiful gulf views, and sits secluded with a private pool.
Three bedrooms, each with its own private bath, provide sleeping for 8 (2 queens, 4 twins). Each bedroom has a TV and has balcony acess. The interior of the house was newly renovated this year - all new paint, carpet and appliances were added. New flatscreen TVs are in the queen bedrooms and in the living area.
The newly expanded (Feb. 2012) main deck, provides additional living space. And the new outdoor shower allows for convenient rinsing after a sandy trip to the beach.
Lefty's Jewel is a pet friendly home.

We stayed 5 nights in this beautiful, well taken care of, private, well stocked home . It was obviously cleaned well, and had very nice, comfortable living room furniture. I loved the curtains and rod in the living room. The house was very well maintained, especially considering it is pet friendly. I loved the open concept layout on the upper level where the main living area is. I also loved that there was a bathroom for each bedroom. The linens were high quality and luxurious. The beds were comfortable. The walk in shower is gorgeous, and the balconies off each level offer a beautiful view. The setting was much more private than some of the other homes in the immediate area. Having a private pool was also a lot of fun. I thought it was very considerate of the owners to keep it well stocked with board games, puzzles, magazines, dvds, etc. It was also nice that there were basic cooking supplies, like oil and spices and the kitchen was so well stocked with pots and pans and dishes, and with the dishwasher it made it so easy! The owners were very nice and we had no problems with access information or with getting through the gate. As far as activities, we loved driving over to Apalachicola and shopping in all the little shops and experimenting with different restaurants. Caroline's River Dining had a great view off the screened deck and our dog was welcome too. On the island there weren't a lot of options for breakfast during the week, but the Beach Pit was decent for breakfast and the BBQ was great for dinner, the Brunswick stew was awesome. I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and family.
Property was as described. Very clean, nice furnishings and beach was an easy walk 5 mins or less. The bikes were great with paved bike trails in the Plantation. This is a awesome house in a beautiful location....excellent place to relax and forget about work. Danielle, was great to work with....no problems at all. I will recommend Leftys Jewel to friends & family.
From the pictures we knew this would be a beautiful location and house -- but the location and the house far exceeded our expectations! We had been looking for a getaway and this turned out to be the best one possible one we could have chosen The plantation is simply gorgeous, the house is in excellent condition and so close to the beach, and the island and area has so many things you can do. My son, husband and I enjoyed the best quality family time we've had in ages exploring St. George and Apalachicola. We also enjoyed the secluded beach! During our stay there, we saw only a handful of people on the beach and they were so kind to us. We enjoyed the Blue Parrot on the island and the Owl Cafe and Tamara's in Apalachicola. Danielle, the owner, was so wonderful to work with. We had everything we needed at the house and more. In this day and age where you never really know what you may get, despite beautiful pictures, we can honestly say that the pictures couldn't do the house, location and island justice. We will be back just as soon as we can for some more relaxing family time, and we can't wait! -- The Shand Family
We loved this house. It was perfect for 2 families with 2 kids each. The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. The deck furniture was used daily--breakfast on the top floor and happy hour on the lower deck became our routine! The home was clean and tidy, with plenty of towels for bath and beach. The shower head in the lower queen bedroom was a bit broken but usable--we emailed the owners to let them know it was broken upon arrival and they checked back in the next day to see if it was something that needed attended to right away. We appreciated the responsiveness. The pool was perfect although a little deep for young ones--bring a life vest or floating device for little ones. It was serviced the day we arrived and again later in the week. The house was not too far from the beach, but a wagon of some sort would be helpful (there was one in the storage shed but it was not in good repair.) We loved having the bikes and riding around the beautiful bike paths. Also recommend renting a kayak--there is a company on the island who will drop them off and pick them up and we were able to kayak out to see some of the many dolphins up close--amazing experience! The kayaks are heavy though, and you can't keep them on the beach--we had our 2 men in the family take it to the beach entrance in the van and carry it from there. Ate at Blue Parrot which was great--good food, patio on the water. Something for everyone--seafood lovers, vegetarians, and folks with allergies. We would definitely return to Lefty's Jewel in the future!
We enjoyed our stay at Lefty's Jewell...we have been to SGI for several years now, but this was the first time in Plantation. We loved the bikes (although I have not been on one for about 40 years and fell off mine) and the area felt very private. All three generations + Grand-dog enjoyed our stay !Thanks so much for sharing your vacation home!!
