C5 300 Ocean Mile Townhouse: Pool, Boardwalk to Gulf Beach

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our two bedroom beach house is ideally located between the beach and the bay, though the beach is a few steps away, the bay is no more than a quarter of a mile.

This townhouse offers the convenience of Wi-Fi, Cable TV with DVD, outside shower for getting the sand off your feet, and a washer and dryer. Of course having a kitchen is such a huge amenity, giving you the flexibility to eat in when you want to and save some money too!

Nearby are the towns of Apalachicola, about ten miles, and Eastpoint, about eight miles, four across the new bridge. (The old bridge sections are being used as fishing piers on the bay.) If you ever wondered where the 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' was filmed, Wakulla Springs is just south of Tallahassee, about sixty miles away, and it's pure, clear, and deep, with swimming and boat tours and a lodge. Eastpoint is where part of 'Ulee's Gold' was filmed with Peter Fonda.

The activities in the area of the 'Forgotten Coast' are perfect for families who enjoy outdoor activities together and for couples who just want to relax and enjoy the seafood and the scenery.

And Apalachicola is still a small fishing village with lovely homes, interesting shops, great restaurants and riverfront docks for fresh seafood delivery. We wish we lived here! We're certain you will, too.

About Jim & Carol Tollerson

We are Carol & Jim Tollerson from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. We are both RN's; Carol still works part time at the VA Medical Center and I am partially retired and working PRN. The oil paintings you will see in our home, mostly seascapes and anonymous children, were all done by Carol. We are hoping someday to be able to live most of the year on beautiful St. George Island.

Jim & Carol Tollerson purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Jim & Carol Tollerson chose Florida

We had looked up and down both coasts of Florida for a place we could truly enjoy and were passing through Apalachicola when we decided to see what St. George Island had to offer. Our first impression was, 'There are no high rise condominiums here!!!' We had been disappointed by so many otherwise beautiful beaches marred by tall buildings spoiling the views, this was like finding a (relatively) unknown, peaceful paradise occupied by more houses than condominiums, and none of them over three stories high! Our wise county commission passed an ordinance preventing the construction of anything taller. Apalachicola, Eastpoint (directly across the bridge from the island), and St. George Island itself have some of the best fresh caught seafood, including the 'world's best oysters', found anywhere. Apalachicola Bay still has oystermen using tongs to harvest from 'legal' oyster beds, as well as shrimp boats using large mesh nets (let the small shrimp get large!), and catches of grouper, snapper, sea trout, redfish, flounder (and many other varieties) prepared any way you want them. On the east end of the island (a short walk from our home) is the state park, with eight miles of beautiful Gulf beach with just two structures set back from the shore for picnics and showers. The beach has a good amount of shells continuously washing ashore and many spend nearly every morning looking for interesting specimens. Fishing from the surf is seasonally rewarded with cobia, bluefish, and pompano, as well as many other species. On the other side is the bay, with fishing, swimming, canoeing, sailing, camping, and hiking available for visitors.

What makes this townhome unique

Looking out from the first or second floor you will see the swimming pool in the center of the town home community twenty yards from your decks. You can enjoy the comforts of home while watching your children play in the pool! The Gulf beach is a short walk down the boardwalk and can be visually enjoyed from both decks and the living room (and the upstairs master bedroom). Our home has two bedrooms, the master has a king size bed, night stands, dresser, and cable television with DVD player, the second bedroom has its own deck and views of the dunes and beach toward the west, with a queen bed, night stands and dresser. There is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room along with another television with DVD, a radio/CD player, board games and books. On nearly every wall hangs original artworks by the owner. The home also has wireless (and wired) internet access, free long distance calling, a complete kitchen with all utensils, dishes, cookware, and glassware. Please bring your own coffee and filters! There is also a washer and dryer, ironing board and iron (who wants to iron on vacation?), two and one-half baths, an outside shower (must get the sand off your feet!), and covered parking on a concrete drive.

We truly enjoyed our recent visit to St. George Island. The condo is the perfect location to the pool and the beach. It is very quiet and secluded. I love that there are no high rises on the island at all. There is no artificial light at night allowed on the beach and the stars were so bright and beautiful. The complex is steps from the state park and the island is very bike friendly. The condo is arranged in a way so everyone can spread out and have their own space. We have been to most of the major beaches in Florida and this was truly a unique experience. You could really enjoy the beach without all of the nonsense that you see in places like Panama City. I can't wait for our next visit.

property is good.

I have stayed in this unit couple of times, only complaint I have is: ice maker never worked, every low on cooking pots and pans. only one small boiler in unit, dryer slow at drying. The night before we left,some one came along beach and ripped our chairs and etc, which were hanging from our tent frame up close to walkway. Nothing was touching ground. We have always left our stuff for over 25 years straight staying here. They should have left a note on the stuff and we would have moved gladly so now I have to purchase new beach items. We have never had problems staying here that's one reason we stay.

Owner's Response: We apologize for your lost beach chairs. Did you check with the resident manager? Some people may get overzealous during turtle season. Now they tell us we're not supposed to leave anything on the beach overnight. However, they shouldn't have been taken if they were off the ground. New pots and pans should have been delivered to our house in June. We'll make sure there are more added. Our refrigerator is about a year old and the ice maker should work. We'll have maintenance look at it. We'll also have maintenance check the dryer. Our property manager is Collins Vacation Rentals of St. George Island (800-683-9776). They will send someone to make repairs or replacements anytime something is needed so that your visit can be as pleasant as possible. Sincerely, Jim & Carol Tollerson

We stayed in Ocean Mile C5 and loved it! Very comfortable condo, close to the best beach we've ever been to.

We love the whole area, with the only complaint being food prices.

We will be back, for sure.

Get Away From It All

  • 4 of 5

Just want to say thanks to Jim and his wife for allowing us their home for the week. It was a super value for the location and all it offered. Things are a little pricey at the shops on an island and I advise to go over the bridge to do grocery buying. Blue Parrot was way too expensive for our money and don't recommend it. Journeys was a savior for us for entertainment. Very fair boat rentals and excursions. PWC rental by Blue Parrot very fair also. 300 Ocean mile was great for the state park and dolphins. Dozens of dolphins every day. My kids loved it. The condo was a blessing to come back to after and during our days. Pool was cold but kids got used to it quickly. Visit Appalochola accross the bridge for great food and stores. Collins Vacation Rentals was awesome to deal with also.
