About Owner

We live in Roswell, GA, a suburb of Atlanta. We visit our beach house about 3-4 times a year and regret leaving it each time we have to go back to our busy lives in the big city.

Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner chose Florida

We first discovered the natural beauty and the pristine beaches of St George Island in 2011. We purchased our house in the Spring of 2013 - both of us had immediately agreed that "this one is for us" after only glancing at the pictures.

The Island offers a unique combination of uncrowded beaches, no high rises, great fishing, and an overall Old Florida feel that is becoming harder and harder to find.

We chose the Plantation for the added security of the 24-hour gated access, beautiful native vegetation, and park-like landscape maintenance. The Plantation also has special building restrictions and protective covenants to ensure very low building density. Having underground utility lines is a big plus as well.

Our house is one of the relatively newer ones built in the Plantation (2004), and up to the highest coastal construction standards. It has high grade Andersen windows and doors, a new Trex second level deck, custom kitchen cabinetry, new SS appliances. There is quality trim and finishes throughout.

We love our beach house and try our best to make sure that it is always in an excellent condition.

What makes this house unique

A beautiful, secluded white-sand beach for long walks, shelling, or just playing in the sand. Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. An unbelievably clear night sky (when was the last time you saw the Milky Way in the city?). A private, heated pool and a hot tub for relaxing after a day at the beach.

The Plantation has a great new clubhouse with a three quarter Olympic size community swimming pool, shaded picnic area, and fitness room. Amenities also include three tennis courts, a privately owned/public use landing strip, and access to excellent fishing at Bob Sike's Cut. The are plenty of paved paths for bicyclists, jogging and walking enthusiasts.

St. George is close to historic Apalachicola, a quaint old town with art galleries, gift stores, restaurants, and the best oysters in the world.

Great week at the Beach

  • 4 of 5

The home was great for our group. Difficult to see the ocean, but the walk to the beach was very short. House was well equipped for a large group..Did not find a can opener, but we did not request it from the property mgr. The one time we called , as we could not find the coffee filters, the mgr assisted us immediately. Each room was very comfortable and everything was as it was described.. An easy and comfortable home for a week. The pool was very nice. My only suggestion is the hot tub (which we did not use and was partially covered) appeared to be breeding mosquitoes, and the walk to the beach through the path was overloaded with them, so we walked around the road to the beach. This may just be the time of year, and there was not much of a breeze on several days. Possibly take a mosquito foggier and lots of repellent!

Owner's Response: We are glad your family enjoyed the house and had a great time on the Island. Unfortunately with all the rain we've had the mosquitoes have been a problem everywhere. Regarding the hot tub - thanks for bringing that to my attention. It absolutely shouldn't be breeding mosquitoes! We are addressing this with our pool maintenance company and making sure something like this doesn't happen again. Thanks!

Beautiful, peaceful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at St. George Island last week! The house is beautiful, and beds are very comfortable. I especially loved the deck which is off the lower master bedroom. It overlooks the pool and gorgeous landscaping (oleanders, palm trees, etc.). The benefit of being a few houses back from the beach is the privacy provided by the lush foliage. The walk to the beach took 2-3 minutes. I personally like more of an ocean view, but you can see the water from the dining area and the deck (as picture in the listing photos). I chose this house knowing I'd have less of a view, because of all the other perks. Love the fact that linens and towels were provided!

The owner is helpful and easy to get in touch with. Here are a couple of details/tips about the house to help you plan & pack:

1) Coffeemaker takes cup-style filters

2) There is an electric kettle (for the tea drinkers)

3) The 5th bedroom (office with daybed, etc.) is on the lower floor with the other bedrooms.

4) Before buying charcoal and lighter fluid, check the supply shed (where the beach toys and chairs are). I found some there after we had bought a bag, so I added our bag to it.

5) We preferred the IGA in Appalachicola for shopping, but there is also a Piggly Wiggly. There's also a Piggly Wiggly "Express" right on the island.

You won't regret choosing this house. We all loved it!

As Good as it Gets! How True it is! This one is a keeper.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as planned late evening, on Wednesday, and departed Monday. All of the outside lights were on for us, even the needed ones inside. The house truly is amazing. Fully stocked, spotless, house as described. Spacious Bedrooms, living area, porches off each room. Outside closet stocked with all of the needed beach chairs, towels, inflatables, and even a wagon for transport. Just a short walk down the path to the beach. Wow! This house gets "Uncle Bugs Chili" FIVE STAR REVIEW! We travel in each year from CT, for the annual Chili Cook Off! The homeowner is so accommodating and helpful. Plenty to do both on and off the island. Plantation gate security was efficient, polite, and always there. Would like to do business again.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful! The kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything we could possibly need. The storage area had all we needed for the beach (chairs, wagon, toys). The short path to the beach was a very easy walk. We thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing vacation!!
