Gulf Beaches House Rental Photos and Description

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 (twin over double), 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.

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!!

Pictures just don't do justice to this awesome home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the gourmet kitchen especially since we planned on cooking most of our meals because we brought our 19 month old granddaughter and the limited restaurants. My favorite area was the large shaded deck to enjoy my morning coffee or evening glass of wine and watch the dolphins frolic like Flipper! The whole family enjoyed the pool especially since it was so windy the first couple of days. Ben and Sharon were very attentive and maintain the home with the upmost care. It was very clean and comfortable. It was perfect for our vacation with just rest and relaxation as the goal.

Amazing property - beachfront with pool

  • 4 of 5

These were the most responsive owners I have ever worked with (and we book through vrbo often)! The had cold water in the refrigerator for us and a welcome package of goodies that was over the top! Best owners I have ever worked with.

Our favorite areas were:

* the beachfront patios ( yes two separate patios) -- It had very comfortable furniture and was definitely a hangout day and night. We had elderly parents with us so they could enjoy the family festivities at the beach without having to even take on the sand and walk.

* the pool area-- You truly felt like you were living in a tropical paradise poolside. The large gas grill was wonderful for cooking for 11 of us! There was plenty of seating and you could always find some shade poolside as well.

* the kitchen--best stocked kitchen I have encountered. We even used the crock pot for a couple of easy meals. Top of the line appliances. Also, the downstairs full-size refrigerator was a plus for extra storage!

* open floor plan living area - all of us had plenty of room to spread out and yet still be "together" without being on top of each other. Very comfortable furniture.

* separate living quarters on the lower level -- this was ideal when traveling with kids/teens! Separate kitchenette, living area and bedrooms/bath area.

The only negative about the house are that the bathrooms are a bit out of date and two of the king bedrooms on the upper floor had to share a bath . Everything worked well in all baths. An extra bath or two would have been nice, but this was small in our book when compared to all of the other amenities! The downstairs queen room is only accessible through the kids bedroom and did not have it's own bath either. It could be a strange situation for some, but it worked fine for the kids and their aunt to bond! It would be ideal for a family with smaller children if parents wanted to be close to the kids.

Thank you Ben and Sharon for such a wonderful experience! Our family is already talking about reserving our dates for next year!

Owner's Response: Elizabeth, we are so glad you enjoyed the gifts and amenities we try to leave for each of our Guests; we try to be the same type of Hosts that we would hope from others. I am sorry that you were unaware of the bath arrangement. We tried to be very clear in our home description that there are three baths in the house, with two upstairs and one downstairs, with private access for two of the three upstairs bedrooms. However, it sounded as if Breathe Easy met and exceeded all your expectations elsewhere and we are appreciative of that.

State park located at east end of Island provides pristine natural habitat for shelling and enjoying nature. Marine nature-center also provides an insight into the aquatic life pertinent to the area.

The quaint city of Apalachicola provides local shops and restaurants, with a true flavor of Old Florida.
