Florida House Rental Photos and Description

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath - Gulf Views Galore!

A Turtle's Dream is as close to the Gulf of Mexico's water’s edge as you can get! Any closer and you'll get wet. The large beach facing deck has covered and uncovered areas, with ample furnishings for all, to either enjoy your morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf, read a book, sunbathe, or watch the dolphins swim. The white sandy beaches of St. George Island are just steps away. When you can manage to steal your gaze away from the stunning view of the Gulf, gather inside this warm and inviting home featuring elegant woodwork throughout, glowing heart pine floors, and cypress tongue and groove walls. The great room with lovely beamed ceilings and built in bookshelves around a gas fireplace is the central gathering place for meals and catching up with family and friends. The well appointed kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare the day's catch or your family's favorite recipes. New stainless steel appliances, a stand alone ice maker and lots of extras make this kitchen a joy to be in. An extra refrigerator is also provided in the storage room under the house. Enjoy family tournaments at the pool table alongside a wall of glass doors showing off the amazing Gulf views. Or retreat to the quiet respite of one of four bedrooms. Two bedrooms with king size beds face the beach with sliding glass doors to the deck and stunning Gulf views, as well as private baths with double vanities. The third bedroom also has a king size bed and a private bath, and the fourth bathroom is convenient for both the fourth bedroom featuring a triple bunk bed, and the great room. All beds invite you for a restful night's sleep or lazy afternoon nap with new Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. A pack-n-play is available to make things a little easier for parents.

Downstairs under the house is a large concrete parking pad with fish cleaning sink, picnic table and outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Flat screen televisions and blu-ray players are in each bedroom and in the living room.

TAKE ME BACK TO THE BEACH............

  • 5 of 5

This was the most awesome beachfront home! Very well maintained, clean, and very accommodating! Our grandkids LOVED having their own room and a pool table in the common area for when they wanted to just hangout after a full day at the beach.

The owner gives good customer service - very quick on return questions. I would strongly recommend this property to my family and friends.

Taking the kids to the top of the lighthouse was one of their favorite day trips. Local restaurants had great food - LOVED the Blue Parrot!

Planning our next spring break trip to this location!

Perfect Escape!

  • 5 of 5

If I owned this house, I would have name it "A Perfect Escape". I searched and searched VRBO for the 'perfect house' on St. George Island, and I believe I found A Turtle's Dream within 5 mins; I added it to my favorites and continued looking and looking and looking for something better for almost 2 weeks. After it was all said and done, I booked it and I am so very happy I did. You cannot go wrong with this house. It was large, clean, comfy, lots of room, and right on the beach. The only decision I wish we had made differently was that I wish we had brought our two dogs; a Golden Retriever and our Black Lab... OMG, they would have loved the beach and the island. Everyone had their dogs and the island is very dog friendly. We will definitely bring them next time. A shout out to Carla the property manager for very detailed instructions prior to our arrival and the cleaning crew for their top notch job on making the house picture perfect. Hope to be back soon!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at A Turtle's Dream. When we arrived we found the house super clean and well stocked. The view of the ocean was spectacular from all the windows. The covered porch was great for meals and morning coffee. This house had one of the best equipped vacation kitchens we have ever seen. The separate ice maker was a real treat. We actually had the opportunity one morning to see volunteers check a turtle nest after eggs hatched the previous evening on the beach outside the house. We will definitely make plans to stay here again on our next visit to St. George!

Even Better in Person

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do it justice. Large, open and great for our family. Agreed to previous reviewer, the beach is closer than the pictures indicate. Beautifully furnished. Everything you could possibly need is already there. Was great with 2 younger children! Definitely recommend, will be back!

A Dream!

  • 5 of 5

10 family members together for a week at this beautiful home. Loved the openness of the living and dinning room and kitchen. great having the pool table. Beautiful bedrooms all with their own bathrooms. the deck was well stocked with lounge chairs and a table to eat at for 6. the beach was perfect. so great to just walk out the boardwalk and jump in the water or get on a kayak. pretty much a private beach. watching dolphins from the deck was great fun. wonderful place to have a family vacation. about one mile to restaurants.

We can't wait to come back!

  • 4 of 5

St George Island and A Turtle's Dream exceeded our expectations. The beautiful beach, the short walk down the boardwalk, the lovely house, the dolphins that greeted us upon arrival, all made for a fabulous vacation. Carla was a delight to work with and we knew we were in good hands. We can't wait to come back!
