Plantation House Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath

Watch the sunrise from one of three beachfront decks or the cozy screened porch. Beachfront 'Sea Cliff' towers over protective dunes and offers views of the Gulf of Mexico from each beachfront deck.

'Sea Cliff' is located in the quiet respite of St. George Plantation on a seldom traveled live oak lined street. A semi-private pool is steps away and shared by only a few homes in the exclusive 'Bluffs' area of the Plantation. Sea Cliff guests are also privileged to the St. George Plantation community pool and fitness center.

The first living level has one king master bedroom with beachfront deck access and a full bathroom, flat screen TV and Blu-ray player; a bunk bedroom with a trundle (3 twins) with beachfront deck access, a flat screen TV with Blu-ray player; an additional full bathroom, and a second living room with queen sleeper sofa, beachfront deck access and flat screen TV with Blu-ray player. The laundry room with washer and dryer are also on the first living level.

The second living level offers a king bedroom with flat screen TV and Blu-ray player; a bathroom with shower, the main living room with beachfront deck access and flat screen TV and Blu-ray player; the fully equipped kitchen, the dining area, and a cozy screened porch with Gulf views.

Third level features a nautical-themed loft with twin bed with trundle, flat screen TV with Blu-ray player, a full bathroom, and a morning kitchen with mini-refrigerator, and a private beachfront deck.

A charcoal grill is available on the ground level.

Under the house are a screened fish cleaning sink, an outdoor shower and toilet (a convenient feature when needing a quick 'nature-call' break from the beach).

About Carla Gibbs

St. George Island has been our family's vacation destination for many years. We wouldn't dream of spending our precious family time anywhere else.

Carla Gibbs purchased this house in 2013

Why Carla Gibbs chose Florida

We purchased this home in April 2013 for its perfect beachfront location in a quiet and tranquil area. We are redecorating it now to begin hosting vacations for your family in May 2013. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Highly recommend for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my family. There was plenty of space for everyone and never felt crowded. We had 11 people and the space worked very well. The pool being located across the street from the driveway made it easy with small children. Very quiet street and no traffic. Great family rental.

Perfect location, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this house and we had another great stay this time around. The house is spacious, the pool and beach are both steps away which was perfect for our family.

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week. There were 7 of us- 4 adults and 3 kids, and we had more than enough space in the house. The house is very well-appointed, comfortable and spacious. The view is gorgeous and the beach just a short walk away. The beach is very quiet and secluded, it felt like it was our very own beach. The pool was also just literally steps away in front of the house- we spent a lot of time there swimming with the kids. We wished we were staying all summer!

Spectacular and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what it is advertised to be and is a great set up. It has all the amenities you could want. We had a family of 4 with 2 children ages 6 and 8 and an additional couple, and the set up was perfect. The family of 4 were on the 1st floor and the couple on the 2nd floor. We had room for more on the 3rd floor and used that as a "reading room." The kitchen is lovely and the view is spectacular. We had been to SGI once before and so were less in the exploring mode and already knew places to go both on SGI and in Apalachicola, etc. We had a FABULOUS boat ride and treasure hunt on the "deserted island" for the kids through Jolly Roger which I highly recommend. It was a real highlight. I would say the only caveat is that there are a lot of steps in the house - not a problem at all for our group, but for anyone with physical limitations, this could have been an issue. Lovely house and would happily go back!

Good location but layout a little strange

  • 3 of 5

The location on the beach is excellent. Not a lot of activity at this location on the beach so no noise or crowds to distract from your enjoyment of the beach. Many amenities with the house, especially liked the outside shower and commode. Very handy. The kitchen was furnished pretty well but needed some small plastic glasses for the kids and a few more pots and pans to fill out the selections. The four bedroom floor plan was a little quirky with basically 2 children's rooms ( trundle bunk beds) and two adult rooms. We had 3 couples, 3 children and a baby. Adults slept on trundle bed upstairs with the baby. Biggest drawback, no door to upstairs room. Had to be quiet on second level when baby was asleep. Also, the low flow shower in the downstairs adult bedroom can peel skin. The water jets are like needles and there is no way to lessen the pressure. Check in was delayed because the house was still being cleaned when we arrived. Also, the AC evaporator coil was clogged causing condensation to run all over the floor. Quick response however when the problem was noticed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review of your stay at Sea Cliff. We are terribly sorry that you were disappointed in the floor plan and the bed arrangements. We tried to carefully describe the layout of the house in the written description as well as the labeled pictures. We will add small plastic cups and additional cookware for the convenience of our guests. Thank you again for taking the time to offer your feedback so that we may continually improve the Sea Cliff experience.

Wonderful beachfront, family vacation experience

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to St. George for 25+ years, staying at some homes multiple times and this home is top notch. Carla did an excellent job making the rental process, paperwork, and the Plantation and home access trouble free. This home is a great family vacation property. We brought our two daughters with their husbands and 4 children. Wonderful views from the kitchen and upper decks. The home has all the amenities (plush bath and beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, sand toys, 3 bikes (1 adult and two kids), 5-TVs/DVD, every kitchen and cooking tool you will need, etc). The cozy neighborhood pool with nice lounge chairs is 50 steps away and the beach is easily accessed even with small children. Because this home is in a private enclave, within the Plantation, the beach seems quieter and more private. Our surf fishing was active (mostly catch and release) and I caught enough flounder and mackerel for one dinner. Three turtle nests popped up within 30 yds of our beach access steps while there. Lots of outdoor fun.

The only concern I had is that the house is really only best suited for two families with children. Initially, when vetting the house, I didn't think it would be an issue. Two of the 4 bedrooms are set up for children with bunk beds and trundles only and the queen foldaway bed was in the first level common area. Because of our family circumstances, my wife and I stayed on the third level, 50+ steps from the driveway. That said, that level does have the best view!
