Overview

Florida House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Begin your St. George Island experience at Southern Exposure! Enjoy the scenic beauty of natural Florida as you drive thru the gated community of the St. George Plantation to your beach paradise.

A comfortable home with modern conveniences, Southern Exposure offers 3 bedrooms and 3 and a half bathrooms, a private swimming pool, and Gulf views!

Entering onto the lower level, you are greeted by two of the three bedrooms. The first bedroom suite boasts a Queen bed, private bathroom with shower stall, Jacuzzi tub, and morning bar with coffee maker. Sliding glass doors open onto the covered deck where you can enjoy the Gulf breeze as you lose yourself in that long-awaited novel or simply indulge in the natural, peaceful setting as you stroll along the wrap-around deck. A second bedroom with a Queen bed also opens onto the covered deck and has access to a full bathroom. Both bedrooms offer TVs and DVD players for your convenience.

The stairwell to the upper level opens onto the main living area with hardwood and tile floors. A fully equipped kitchen with granite countertops and new appliances make cooking a delight. The entire family can join in preparing and enjoying the fresh catch of the day, with bar seating for 3 and a separate glass top dining table for 5. Or, take advantage of the Gulf view and enjoy your meals in the screened-in dining porch just off of the kitchen and dining room. The attached sundeck is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee as the sun rises above the Gulf waters or to enjoy an evening cocktail as you count the shooting stars across the night sky.

The living room offers comfortable seating with a sleeper sofa and a large, flat panel TV for your enjoyment, while a DVD player, CD/stereo, and an assortment of DVDs, books, and games are available to entertain you on rainy days. A sliding glass door opens onto the sundeck as the glistening Gulf waters lure you outside to relax in the warmth of the Florida sun.

A short stairwell leads to the loft bedroom with 2 twin beds and the best views in the house! A great space for children or teenagers, the loft bedroom also offers a private bathroom with a full tub and shower.

Outside amenities include a large, private swimming pool and ample deck space for lounging, an enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower, a park-style charcoal grill and covered parking. Lush landscaping and a natural setting surround you, and with no power or cable lines to obstruct your views, you will feel enveloped in your own private paradise.

A very short stroll (approximately 75 yards) takes you along a private nature path to the community beach boardwalk, where your toes will indulge in the feel of the white, sandy beaches of the Florida Panhandle. Swimming, shelling and dolphin watching await you along the miles of uncrowded beach and glistening waters.

Additional amenities of the St. George Plantation include a large community swimming pool, tennis courts and fitness center located at the Plantation Clubhouse, as well as miles of bike and walking trails and access to excellent fishing at Bob Sikes Cut—all of which makes your Southern Exposure experience complete!

Why The Owner chose Florida

After many years of vacationing on the Gulf Coast, we have settled on St. George Island as the perfect location for that relaxing family beach vacation. The Plantation area provides a step back in time to the way Florida used to look, lush vegetation and natural beaches, making it truly Florida's 'Forgotten Coast'.

What makes this house unique

Southern Exposure is a beautiful property, recently renovated with all the comforts of a permanent home. A private pool, and views of the gulf from the many balconies and porches takes relaxing to a new level. A very short walk on a private path puts you directly on the uncrowded beach, ideal for swimming, shelling and long walks. Late night walks have even yielded chances to view nesting sea turtles.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have loved staying here. It was hard to decide whether to go out or just stay in. Specifically, I don't think we've been in a house with such a nice TV. The pool was great, warm and fun. It was just a wonderful environment. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your home!

A little piece of heaven!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love St George Island!!! This is a great vacation home. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us for the week. The kids enjoyed the pool and the walk to the beach was short which we like. We used the screened in porch often in the evening/night to watch the storms roll in. We will definitely come back again.

Beautiful views from every room, secluded, and a short walk to the beach. We had a wonderful week at this restful home. It had everything we needed and then some. The outdoor shower was the best! Everything was as described and we couldn't couldn't have had a better week. Shells were even better than Sanibel! We would definitely recommend! Thank you so much for letting us stay there!

wonderful house, beautiful location and close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that we expected from the description. Well maintained and well supplied with the essentials for an enjoyable stay. A short walk to the beach makes it very conveinant. St. Georges Plantation, where the house is located, is beautifully landscaped and well maintained. I would definitely stay a this property again.

Peaceful Private Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Southern Exposure and enjoyed every single minute. The house was comfortably furnished and the kitchen was well-equipped, especially for a vacation home. We cooked our own meals most of the time, and the screened deck was a delightful setting for family seafood dinners!

The pool was a welcome amenity, as was the outdoor shower and fish cleaning station. Easy walk to the beach, even for the littlest members of our party, so we were able to go back and forth several times a day.

The owners and the property management company made sure we were comfortable. A minor problem with one of the air conditioners popped up the second week of our visit, and it was resolved promptly, with both the owner and the property manager calling to follow up with us and make sure our needs had been met. I would recommend this property to anyone who wants a quiet, relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of their routines.

Fabulous Beach House

  • 5 of 5

The correspondence from the beginning with the owners of this fabulous house was fantastic, lots of information about their home and what the Island had to offer. On arrival we certainly were not disappointed, the pictures we felt can't capture the warmth of what is obviously a well cared for and lovely family home. The location was perfect very close to the beach yet private for us to have a swim in our own properly heated pool for the week. A really nice touch was to hear from the owners on our second night checking everything was ok and we had settled and did we need anything. We looked at a lot of properties searching for our dream holiday home especially as were travelling from England but without a doubt the most perfect place to stay and thanks for the advice we were given about where to shop, eat, etc.; they certainly know the Island and surrounding areas and hopefully it will not be too long before we make a return visit.

wonderful experience! This house was the perfect place for our relaxing adult spring break!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted a nice get retreat for our adult spring break. We can only stay places that allow dogs as we love our dog as if she was our child! This house was the perfect escape for us and provided everything that we could need. There was plenty of room and the view in the afternoon is amazing to watch the sunset. We look forward to bringing the rest of our family here and staying at this house sometime soon!

St. George Island!

St. George Island is easily accessed from the Tallahassee Regional Airport (a 1 and 1/2 hour drive) or the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport located in Panama City (a 2 hour drive). Quaint taverns, gift shops and restaurants are located on the Island itself, but just one town over (a 15 minute drive) is the fishing village of Apalachicola (world famous for oysters!) where you can shop for antiques, visit award-winning restaurants, see a live play and indulge in an amazing historic town.
