Enjoy the dolphins, pelicans, and ospreys while sitting on the main second floor - 32 foot x 20 foot porch of which half is covered/screened and half open air. Relax as you view the beautiful sunsets, sailboats, shrimps boats across the bay in the wonderful cypress outdoor furniture.

About The Owner

Some of our best memories happened at this house. I just wish we could get their more often.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Florida

I remember my first time on St. George Island while attending college. It was and is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We always had a great time on the island. To have a large home at the end of the island in the plantation is a dream come true. I enjoy being able to share it with friends and family. I hope you enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

This house is perfect for 3 families to be able to stay at one place. The location of this property so close to the end of the island enables you to see the boats coming and going through Bob Sikes cut. Because we are so close to Bob Sikes cut you never know what you will catch when fishing from the dock. Trout, Red Fish, Sheep Head, whiting and many other fish are commonly caught from the dock. You will enjoy the view of the large shrimp boats coming back from the Gulf as the sun sets over the water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house was completed in September of 2002 & has just recently been put up for rent. The furnature is new and high quality. With the direct beach access and your own private bay front beach, you are able to get the total St George Island experence. Please enjoy the house and come back to this guestbook to let people know what you think.

We had 10 guys on our trip and this house was perfect for us. I could easily see 4 families staying here. We had more than enough beds and never felt crowded when in the kitchen, living room or out on the deck. The dock served us well...caught some reds, trout and some fun catching lady fish. The sunset view was incredible! We loved being so close to the cut and the beach was just a short walk. Awesome home, great layout and the owners maintain it well. Thanks again for sharing your perfect SGI home!!!

Great Family fun and fishing

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year staying at Sunset Serenity. We have a large family and every year look forward to spending time together in St. George. The house has everything we need, all the beds are comfortable and there's plenty of room for everyone. The fishing is great off of the dock and it's a quick walk to the beach. The sunsets are beautiful and you feel like your on a tropical Island. Thank you again for taking such great care of your beautiful home. We look forward to coming back again in 2014.

  • 5 of 5

It had been my fisrt trip to the Florida pan-handle area and didn't know quite what to expect. My mind had been blown away. My wife's uncle had rented the house for a small family reunion and when we pulled up to this beautiful property, all i could think was WOW!!

The house could not have been in more perfect shape. The rooms were huge, nicely decorated with beach themes, the kitchen and living areas were especially nice and big considering i am a chef and cooked almost every night. The locals were wonderful, the fishing great, and the closeness of the beach was also a treat.

My wife and the other ladies in our party would be at the beach all day, while the men fished right off of the dock in our back yard. I loved the island itself-it sometimes felt like we had our own private little paradise!!!

A few little tips for new travelers going to the island...Try Lynn's Seafood for all of your retail seafood needs, Harry A's on the Island- Delicious food!!!. And if you want great Mexican, check out Pepper's in nearby Apalachicola.

What a trip and thank you for all of the wonderful memories!!! I will cherish them forever.

Always- Phillip Vamvakides + Family

Owner's Response: Phillip, Thanks for the kind words. My family spent a week at the house at the end of the summer and also had a great time. My 8 year old caught a small flounder off of the dock early one morning and I will not ever forget him running off the dock to tell everybody. All the best to you and yours.

We had a great time at the house. The long outside dining table made it easy for everyone to eat together and enjoy the outdoors. St. George Island is one of my favorite places to visit and relax, and this house is now my favirotie one on the island.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here the week of July 4th, '04. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we ever spent at the beach. Our other trips have been to Panama City, Myrtle Beach, etc. St. George's Island was so appealing to us because it was so much more private (less commercial). We were afraid the kids wouldn't like that as much, but all of them loved it. The privacy/security of the plantation allowed all of them to walk and ride bicycles without the worries of 'party' beaches. We were there with our inlaws (the Rochelles) and some other family friends and all of us are already looking forward to '05. The accomodations are top-notch and there was plenty of room for everyone. The fishing was pretty dead around Bob Sikes Cut and on the beach, but that was true all over the island according to the bait shops. I guess the middle of summer is one of the slower times for fishing. We did catch quite a few trout off the dock at night fishing under the lights. I can't say enough about the vacation we had. My in-laws generousity and your beautiful residence allowed us to have a great week at a great place.


I hope the hurricanes this summer didn't damage your wonderful place. I thought about you every time I watched the news and tracked the storms.

Owner's Response: I am very happy you were able to enjoy our vacation home. We are happy to be part of your families vacation. The Island was not really hit by the stroms to badly. Our house had only one outdoor fan damaged. We enjoy the house as much as you did when we get the chance to go down. Thank you for the kind words. Charlie Minter 850 519 3266
