We live in John Creek Georgia, a suburb of North Atlanta. We love St George Island and Apalachicola-It is not like Destin, but we find so many fun things to do-usually a week is not enough for us! But we have to plan early because OUR Wonderful Guests always beat us to the punch! We enjoy our guests, they become our friends and many of you stay in touch. Give us a try, we hope you fall in love with the Forgotten Coast, the people, and the beautiful surroundings.

Lynn Smith Johnson purchased this house in 2010

Growing up on the Georgia coast, a beach town was not a place with resorts and high rise condos. It was a place where you could hop on your bike and not worry about traffic. We spent many years exploring coastal towns from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and even California. Our current home is in the Metro Atlanta area, we were looking for a quiet place to get away. The late Celestine Sibley, a long time Writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, on occasion would write of her Travels to her 2nd Home on Dog Island, in the Gulf of Mexico. Her writings intrigued us and that is how we found The Forgotten Coast. Finally a place to getaway, to leave your worries behind, and at one time, a place where our cell phones could not get a signal. How great was that!

Beautiful, Quiet Beaches. Nature abounds. Get out and take day trips to surrounding areas and small towns. Fish, cook fresh seafood, take a walk or a bike ride on the islands paved bike path. Climb the Cape St George Lighthouse and others in the surrounding area. Visit the Park on the far east end of the island for seashells, fishing, or a picnic. Best restaurants are in Apalachicola. But a trip to the Indian Pass Raw Bar MUST be scheduled in-

Our 4th or 5th time staying at Little Palm!

  • Submitted: Sep 6, 2011
  • Stayed: Aug 2011
We had a wonderful time here at Little Palm. This was our 4th or 5th time staying in the house. And we were excited to see the many upgrades and new decor. We are always sad to leave St George and always look forward to returning both to the island and to Little Palm. Lots of great memories have been made here for our family and we look forward to many more wonderful times and can't wait to see what else you guys have planned for the house!
Many Thanks!

Once again, we had a great time on SGI

Once again, we had a great time on SGI. It's our 2nd time and we brought our sister and nephew. The weather was perfect! The pool water was great and beach beautiful. We had a great time at Eddy Teach's for lunch most days. We listened to Karaoke and bands at Harry A's in the evenings. We loved dining at the Blue Parrot on the porch with the beautiful ocean as our view.
Your cottage with beautiful landscaping is wonderful.

The View was Great

To the owners of Little Palm,
Our family enjoyed our stay at your beautiful beach house. The house is beautifully decorated and so well equipped. We also enjoyed the well kept pool. We have visited St George several times and stayed in several different homes and this by far was the best. It is so nice to be able to walk across the vacant lot to the beach and the view was great. Hopefully that lot will remain vacant. If and when we come back to St George again I hope your home will be available to rent. Thank You, Virginia

Loved the Porch Rockers!

We had another fantastic week at your WONDERFUL Little Palm! We were surprised to see all the updates since we stayed here last year. Though we have to admit, we really missed the back entrance to the pool, we loved the new decor-especially the porch rockers and awesome TVs! We can't wait to visit again soon. What gem you have!
All The Best,

Just want to thank all of our guests who have taken the time to post a review for our home, Little Palm. We are the new owners and are happy to say we listened-the entire inside has gone thru a renovation- new furniture, professional decorated, and the porch furniture has been replaced with comfy rockers and side tables-the pool furniture has been upgraded and we are currently working on the landscape and hope you will make a return visit - thank you for your feedback, and we look forward hearing from you again.

My wife and I truly enjoy staying at the Little Palm. We find our time there to be very relaxing and peaceful. We find that sitting on the porch in the late afternoon and early morning to be the best part of the day. The dolphin are passing by and the the dove are cooing and we can just sit and totally relax. The house has everything you need for a great stay and with the full kitchen we find that boiling some fresh shrimp with a great bottle of wine to be better than dinning out. We enjoy the beach in the middle of the day and the pool at cocktail hour. The house is not the Ritz Carlton but that is not what we are looking for when stay here. It's nice to have a place that is genuine and not snobbish. We have stayed there for numerous years and i must say that the house and it's furniture are showing some wear and could use some refurbishing. Hopefully that will be completed before our next stay.

Nice Place

Reviewed on 06/18/2010 for a stay on 06/01/2010

Little Palm has to be one of the best equipped homes I have stayed in on St. George Island. Everything worked! All the steps in and out was our only issue. We have 3 miniature dachshunds and they all had to be carried in and out. But I knew this when we made our reservations. The bedroom arrangement was perfect. The teenagers were never heard from the other bedrooms at night. I would recommend this home to anyone with older children. But this is not a home for anyone over 60 unless they are in absolute perfect physical condition.
