About the property

3BR/3BA BEACHFRONT luxury home, sleeps 6-8!

The Lite House is the perfect place to unwind and allow the stress of everyday life to melt away. Conveniently located near the Island center, shops and restaurants are all within easy walking distance.

The first level of this lovely home offers a large beachfront Master suite with King bed and private bathroom with jetted tub. Access to a covered deck invites you outside to greet the morning sunrise or to gaze at the millions of twinkling stars in the night sky. A second bedroom with Queen bed also has a private bathroom with shower stall and a laundry closet with stacked washer/dryer is available in the hall for your convenience.

Upstairs you will walk into an open living area with Queen sleeper sofa and high ceilings. Here, you can relax into the comfortable furnishings or walk out onto the beachfront covered deck with an additional sundeck to delight in the warmth of the sun. The upper deck has a gate which closes access to the lower decks so you can keep a closer eye on your pet or smaller children. Prepare the catch of the day in the tiled kitchen with breakfast bar or enjoy additional seating at the dining room table for 6. Just past the kitchen is a stairwell to the upstairs loft bedroom with Queen bed overlooking the living area and Gulf view, as well as a street side view to watch the summer hustle and bustle of other families enjoying their time on St. George Island. A bathroom with shower stall is available just off of the living area.

As much as you will enjoy spending time inside this beautifully decorated home, the ground level boasts a large, gated beachfront sun and covered deck with enclosed outdoor shower, eating spaces, and access to a park-style charcoal grill and beach boardwalk. The covered outdoor sofa will be your favorite place to nap in between beach visits.

Multiple TVs and DVD players available. We allow up to 1 dog under 30lbs with advance permission.

Why Jamie chose Florida

The Lite House is aptly named! We are within easy walking distance to the Island Playground, St. George Light and Lighthouse Museum! We love that everything is within reach, from restaurants and gift shops, to watering holes and pier fishing, the convenient location of our home allows you to enjoy all of what St. George Island has to offer!

What makes this house unique

We are one of the few Island Cottages that offers a ground level deck space for sunning, outdoor cooking or simply relaxing! The covered sofa has been a favored place to unwind and the enclosed hot & cold outdoor shower makes rinsing off a breeze. I think you will agree that this deck space is a great place to entertain family and friends!

Clean, nicely appointed, well managed.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay. The home was clean and had a number of extras that the neighboring homes did not. The deck had been extended and it made a really nice place for us to all relax on. Also, a lower deck had been added with a nice peaceful place to nap! There were a lot of beach toys for the kids to play with. The beds were comfortable and the decorating was pleasant. The granite countertops in the kitchen were very nice. Also, the property manager, Jamie, really worked to make our vacation work well for us. We look forward to returning to the Lite House often!

Great vacation home on a beautiful, quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing vacation spot in a beautiful home, I highly recommend the Lite House on St. George Island.

The house is centrally located within easy walking access to restaurants and local attractions. The beach is just steps away from the door which is very convenient. The beach is beautiful and not crowded. We were even able to watch dolphins from the upper deck of the house!

With three bedrooms and three levels to the house, there was plenty of room for our three families. The kitchen was well stocked with a variety of cooking utensils which made meal preparation very easy. There is a dining table that seats 6, along with four additional seats at the kitchen island. The living area was very comfortable, as well. In addition to the indoor space, there are three levels of outdoor space with comfortable deck chairs and chaise lounges.

The washer/dryer was much appreciated, as was the wifi access.

Jamie was a pleasure to work with and was quick to respond to my emails prior to the trip. We encountered no issues or problems during our stay, but I knew if we did, Jamie was just a phone call away.

We have rented many vacation homes on the Carolina coast and in Florida over the years, but the Lite House is definitely a family favorite. I highly recommend it and we would most definitely stay here again.

Perfect place for our family of five!

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at the Lite House! Having stayed elsewhere on the island it was a fun change to stay in the center of St. George. I could walk to the market if we needed something and the kids could walk to Aunt Ebby's or to shop for souvenirs. It was a great week!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Lite House was wonderful! There were a few small things wrong when we got there. I called Jamie, and she was there in a flash and fixed it right away! Great beach! A deck for every purpose, and view. Lots of stairs!!! not for the faint of heart if you have a hard time with stairs... but we loved it there! We enjoyed the Blue Parrot a few times. Not so impressed with the Black Marlin.

St. George Island is a 22-mile barrier island with some of the most beautiful and serene beaches on the Gulf Coast. It is one of the last inhabited, yet unspoiled, barrier islands of Florida, with miles of uncrowded beaches for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and excellent fishing, pristine marshes for wildlife viewing.

The newly erected 79 foot St George Island Lighthouse stands proudly in the center of the island.

St. George Island State Park occupies the far eastern end of the island where you will find nine miles of pristine shoreline, majestic dunes, bay forest, sandy coves and salt marshes. The park has a series of hiking trails, boardwalks and observation platforms. Bird watching is a popular activity here. You might encounter one of the many migratory birds that use the island as a stopover on their way south or north.

Sail or powerboats are available for rent, or rent a kayak and explore the remote bays and inlets where you might catch a glimpse of a bald eagle over head or a dolphin swimming in the surf. Rent a bike and ride the paved bike trail or head down to the state park for off road trails.

If you like to fish you'll be in heaven on St. George Island where even a novice fisherman can bring home a fanciful treat for the evening meal. If cooking is not on the agenda, St. George has a variety of eateries that serve only the freshest local seafood. Enjoy oysters surfside or dine on the bay watching the sunset. After dark the Island nightclubs offer live music, billiards, darts and other games. If that is not your thing, just recline on the beach and watch the moonrise over the Gulf or take the kids and watch the sand crabs scramble from hole to hole.

Finally, visit the great shops on the island that carry everything from beach gear, clothing, gifts and books to gourmet treats, original artwork and jewelry.
