About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12, Upstairs and Downstairs Living Areas

Beach front living on beautiful St. George Island, mere steps from the ocean via your own private boardwalk: Breathe Easy is the family-friendly home that will make your vacation holiday special. Upscale furnishings and flat-screen tvs with DVD players are found in the two separate living areas; over 3200 sf means lots of room for extended families. Upstairs, the large, open-house plan includes a living room with over-sized couches and a 55-inch HDTV; dining table for ten; new completely remodeled, well-equipped kitchen, with Viking 48" six-burner range with double oven, oversized refrigerator and farm sink; and a sun porch area with additional seating and eating areas. The expansive balcony provides outdoor easy living, whether watching the dolphins or the kids playing on the beach or in the Gulf. The three bedrooms upstairs have king-size pillow-top mattresses, with two having private bathroom access. The large downstairs living area has a morning kitchen with an additional full-size refrigerator. DVD, book, and game libraries are also available. Bedrooms downstairs include one with queen-size pillow-top mattress and the other, a children's bunk room, with two bunk-beds, and bath with large shower.

Breathe Easy's private pool with water-fall and extensive sunning area (pool heated during cooler months for $350 for week) with multiple chaise lounges is surrounded by dozens of palms and other tropical vegetation, creating a unique, exotic hotel-like atmosphere. A large dining table complements the large event-sized grill (gas provided), plus another park-style charcoal grill, also in the pool area. The downstairs patio provides additional oceanfront sitting, lounging and eating areas. The outdoor shower and fish cleaning area are optimally located near the house and beach.

About Ben and Sharon, Property Owners

We cherish our vacations, too, and understand the importance of having a clean, comfortable, well-equipped home to make your holiday special.

Ben and Sharon, Property Owners purchased this house in 2009

Why Ben and Sharon, Property Owners chose Florida

We love St. George Island and hope you will, too. First visited in May 2008, fell in love with the Island and purchased Breathe Easy in July 2009. In fact, we love the Island so much we are now full-time SGI residents ourselves and available during your stay, if needed. If you are looking for a low-key, family-friendly piece of paradise, St. George Island is it.

What makes this house unique

Sitting on the balcony, watching the dolphins, while enjoying the sea breeze is one of our great joys in life. Add some friends and family to the mix and life can't be better.

Breathe Easy was a Breath of Fresh Air

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed staying at Breathe Easy. The owners were very responsive when we were in the selection process and provided great information for us before and when we arrived. The house is well-maintained - even the pool! The entire space is very clean and the downstairs is great for at least a family of 4. We slept upstairs while a friends of ours who have young kids slept downstairs. It was perfect. The house is steps from the beach which is wonderful. The beach is very quiet and the night sky is unbelievable; being on the island, there's very little ambient light.

St. George and Apalachacola are very quiet. It's the perfect place to slow down and simply enjoy spending time on the beach, walking, playing games, etc. There are a few decent restaurants where we ate on St. George and in Apalachocola.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 days at Breathe Easy.

Fantastic family getaway...

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with ample room for all! And the! We spent the Thanksgiving holiday in this lovely home and enjoyed preparing our feast in the gourmet kitchen. The location on the island is perfect for walking or biking to town for groceries or shopping. The beach views go on for miles...sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking!

Thank you Ben & Sharon for sharing your home.

This house is truly a hidden gem. Best kitchen and living area we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

Just left from our fall break in SGI. We have been coming to the island to stay since 1996 and we have never stayed in the same home twice. This house was truly amazing--by far the best open kitchen, living, and dining area we have ever had. We could not have asked for more from the kitchen. Everything has been updated and the decor is perfect. Some of the best I have seen! The extras and supplies in this home, the well-stocked kitchen, many beach towels, and everything you could possibly need, far exceeded what we have found in most homes where we have stayed.

Second only to the inside living and dining area is the outdoor living and dining area by the pool. The kids loved the private pool and we loved the large gas grill--a rare find on the island. This home is perfect for more than one family staying together. It even has a separate living area with a kitchenette on the bottom level. And the beach access is simple and very close--you could shout back to the house from the beach if you forgot something. Also, the home is very close to town and restaurants and great if you want to rent a golf cart and forego your car. I really didn't think the online description did this house complete justice. We were very pleasantly surprised and impressed.

If you like spending time at the beach and at home, and cooking as a family fresh seafood from the island vendors, this is the home for you. The owners are very prompt in responding

Truly A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Breathe Easy is a great home for a large family/multiple families who like plenty of space to spread out yet extremely open on the second level floor plan to be "together". What a delight to sit by the window or out in the external living area while relaxing, cooking or eating and watch the dolphins swim past. The house was well-maintained with cozy beds and beautiful décor around every corner. The pool/grill area was wonderful as well. We enjoyed the amenities left for us by the owners - truly people who care about your stay and want you to come back. We will definitely be returning to this oceanfront haven! - The King/Wilkens family

3rd time at BeatheEasy. Just a nice place to stay. Ben and Sharon are great to work with on any item. New kitchen was very nice. Stove was great to work on.

Will be back next year.

I recommend this place to everyone who ask where I went on vacation.

Another perfect vacation on SGI at Breathe Easy!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year staying at Breathe Easy. It was fantastic! Walking into the house is truly like coming home for us. As always, the first views of the gulf from the family room continue to amaze. Windows (new this year!) across the entire front of the house, as well as a covered deck provide many viewing angles. We each have our favorite spot to sit and watch the birds and porpoises go by! The kitchen gets better each year; this year the island was a welcomed addition. Easy to eat in or grill out--everything we need is right at our fingertips. The grill on the pool deck is well-maintained and there's always plenty of propane on hand. Lots of pool toys for the kids, too. We split our time between the beach and the pool. When it gets too hot at the pool, we move to the beach for the breeze off the water. There's always fishing gear available for our use as well. Ben and Sharon are great to work with, and respond very promptly to any questions or concerns. Thank you both for yet another wonderful vacation. Looking forward to next year!!
