About Sissel Thorsen
We are a Norwegian family that moved to Texas in 2001. We love the beach and St George allows us to have some fun family time together. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do and come back in the future.
Sissel Thorsen purchased this House in 2010
Why Sissel Thorsen chose East End
You will enjoy a one acre property with a private walk way to the beach. We really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the ease of walking back and forth to the beach. We always leave a base camp on the beach during the day. Since taking over in 2011 we continue to upgrade the house. We added all new steel appliances, built walkway to beach, installed louvres on the side of the garage, landscaped the property, built new stone patio with fire pit, some new artwork and furniture. Just remodeled kitchen cabinets in 2017!!! We will continue to do so as we see it as our home and are happy that others may enjoy it as well.
What makes this House unique
Waking up to the beautiful sounds on St George and drinking a hot cup of Java while watching the dolphin swim by gives us a joy we can't find many places.

We stayed here for spring break 2018. We came with two other families making three families in this house. It worked out perfect. plenty of room for the 4 boys to have their own bunk room and another room for my teenage girls. All three couples had a master with a view of the beach and two had a master bath. the third had a bath right outside their door. It is closer to the beach than the picture feels. the Island is long and not as touristy as other like Bama shores or Panama City, but still had a few beach shops and Ice cream joints and plenty of things to do when not sitting on the beach. We caught plenty of Crabs at night and saw a few dolphins every day. This place was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. The Ping Pong table was also a hit with everyone. We will hopefully be back.
Thank you for your review! We want our guest to have a great stay and we work hard to make sure the house looks good, is well equipped and that we have toys like ping pong and kayak for our guests to use.
We hope you and your family come back soon!
Lots of room, very clean,, loved the porches and the spectacular view!
The AC on the top floor gave us trouble...but other than that we had a fantastic time with our family!
Dear Dayne, Thanks for your feedback and we are happy you enjoyed the place.
Our management company, RVP, does the best they can to keep the place running smooth and fix things as fast as they can. Unfortunately some times things take awhile to get back in order despite their best efforts.
We as Owners strive keep the property nice and re-invest into maintaining it. In the last 5 years we have replaced 2 A/C units so it was unfortunate there was an issue with this.
We look forward to seeing you back at Pelican Watch.
Amazing and beautiful!

I loved vacationing at Pelican Watch with my friends. The location was perfect with gorgeous beach view and easy access til the beach. Lovely and clean house with no detail overlooked. The Kitchen was well-stocked and there was more than enough dining space inside and on the porch to enjoy breakfast/dinner. We loved sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs overlooking the beatiful ocean. I will recommend this house to anyone - you will love this place. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Fantastic place to stay
I loved every minute of our stay at Pelikan Watch with my friends. The location was perfect with gorgeous beach view and easy access to the wonderful beach. The rooms were comfy and clean and the Kitchen was well-stocked for cooking. We spent a lot of time on the porch, a wonderful place to realex and enjoy the view of the ocean. The house is lovely and no detail is overlooked. I will recommend this house to anyone.
Pelican Watch is a first tier home with a private walkway to the beach. You can roll your kayak, cooler, or beach caddy all the way to the beach. Just enjoy the beach scene or you can jet ski, paddle board, kite surf, swim, fish, kayak, and sail. Several rental spots on the island for a variety of water sports, the house comes with a tandem sit on top kayak. And when you head back we have and outdoor shower, sink and a great grill area to grill the catch of the day!. A short 5 minute drive to boat launch or fishing pier in the Apalachicola Bay for bay fishing, shelling or boating. The whole area is like a nature park, dolphins are spotted on a regular basis swimming by, turtles lay eggs on the beach and Bald Eagles nest in the area. The area is famous for its oysters but plenty of others fresh seafood coming right out of the gulf and on to your plate! For the best food, I recommend Harry A's, and Up the Creek in Apalachicola they make some fantastic dishes. For a sunset drink, hit the Blue Parrot on the beach and enjoy live music. If you want to get out of the sun and enjoy a great atmosphere also with live music or watch live sports, go to Paddy's! If you like to play Golf there is an excellent Golf Course about about 20 minutes drive away. There is a private landing strip on the island which is open to the public but no refueling available. Apalachicola municipal airport is about a 10 minutes drive and refueling and rental car is offered there .
