|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This lovely home recently got a makeover to create the vacation home you will call your own. 5 spacious bedrooms, all with new ''heavenly beds'', is perfect for large family gatherings or a fun ''friends'' trip.On a private cul-de sac in the exclusive Casa del Mar neighborhood in the prestigious gated Plantation Community, you'll think its the Florida of old.....you wont know what to do first...run to the beach...swim in the surf....walk a bit & fish at Bob Sikes Cut (you can see it from the house), or just kick back on the awesome decks and relax....the multiple decks have lots of outdoor furniture.
Please note: I only rent 7 nights at a time from Saturday to Saturday. Please check my calendar. I do that now because over 65% of my guests come back every year, for their week or two vacation.
The open living area features all new furnishings, a wood fireplace, media center,large dining area....a really cool bar, a second seating area and a fully equipped kitchen ( two refrigerators now) for entertaining....the main floor glass doors open up all the way across for easy access to the deck. Its a big enough house that you never feel crowded. Very kid-friendly......too. The Lighthouse room is the best.....New DVD/TV's for them in several bedrooms, playpen provided, beach toys, and LOTS of Sand!
The sunrises and sunsets will take your breath........I had a blast redoing the home ....I can't imagine how much fun it would be staying there.......from the 3rd & 4th floor balconey ...the water is so clear & your so close that you can see the fish in the water! You will love this place.......private boardwalk with sitting area at the end to your 'Willow Beach:..... an outdoor hot / cold shower.......fish cleaning area........elevator to all floors.....
Opening up the house to let the sea breeze in......now that's a vacation......call me & lets put it together.... 'Welcome to our beach house.......Willow Beach'.
My husband Hank & I came to this area in 1998 and built our 'Willow Bay' home on the bay side in the Plantation....we have loved the area and made so many great friends down here that when this opportunity came up ...we jumped at it.
We are in the furniture business, so redoing the house was fun for me. So many of our friends & family come down to St. George now, we thought this would be a good home to buy.
Last summer we took my mother in law and her sister (both 80+). What a time...the sand , the decks,the beach and the comfort! Not to mention the elevator, which was great for my moms-in law, one of whom had a very bad back. I LOVED being here and so did my husband and moms!
The kitchen was perfect for a cook like me....my normal life is so stressful, but cooking is an escape and this kitchen was really great and well equipped.
The only problem is writing a great review, which makes it harder for me to book my time!
Our family of 12 had an amazing week at Willow Beach and we wish we were still there! The house was wonderful with all of the amenities you could ask for. The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen was so well stocked and had plenty of room for multiple cooks. We spent most mornings and nights out on the deck, which had plenty of seating for everyone, watching the dolphins or just listening to the waves. We saw dolphins many times everyday. It is a very short walk to the beach and about a 15 minute walk to Bob Sikes Cut. Don't miss the sunsets at the cut, they were just gorgeous and the kids also loved swimming in the Bay. Cathy was awesome to work with and answered any questions we had very promptly. She personally called us when the house was ready and let us know that some blinds needed to be replaced, but we aren't late sleepers so that didn't bother us at all. I can't say enough great things about this house and the location. We can't wait to go back.
We lived the beautiful home. It was the perfect setting for a perfect family vacation. The home was amazing and had everything we needed. the beach was gorgeous and the Dolphins seemed almost close enough to touch. Will definately be back
Location!Location!Location! This beautiful home is a short beach walk from the jetty; it's a great place to view sunsets, fish, or both. Willow Beach is luxuriously furnished with everything you'll need for a memorable, carefree vacation. We hung out on the covered decks during the day and sat on the top open air deck at night to stargaze. This is a perfect place to cycle, swim, kayak, eat the freshest of seafood and just kick back and relax. The house is in tip top shape and both the owner and her on-island mgr. respond quickly to any questions or concerns guests may have. We would definitely come back and recommend this home to others.
We recently stayed in this rental. We had 11 guest in the home. I can't say enough about the rental. Great kitchen, bathrooms, mattresses, view and easy beach accessibility!! The owners have gone out of their way to make this house a comfortable beach home for their guests. The a/c actually keeps the house comfortable, we have had that problem with previous rentals! The kitchen had every gadget you could possibly need. All in all, we loved the place and would definitely rent again!!!
You really hate to write a great review because selfishly you want to keep this house, its owner Cathy, its caretaker, Jim and even the island, all to yourself. We discovered beach house vacationing years ago and have always loved the Gulf. We found St George's Island purely by Providential happenstance but have fallen in love with it. We are home. From my buddy at Island Outfitters to Doug's Fish Trailer and the place where I buy bags of oysters, (I simply must draw the line on this secret) I have found everyone to be so welcoming and kind. The house is amazing with a big kitchen and lots of places to lounge and play. The beach offers great fishing, (partly due to the fact that neighbors on each side avoid lines and stay out of the way) with everything from Pompano to Mackerel making its way to the dinner table several nights. If you like some adventure, do some night fishing. We will leave it at that. We kayaked with Dolphins, played lots of cornhole, built big castles, (my ten year old swam with a sea turtle and she will never forget it) and laughed til our sides hurt all the while enjoying this beautiful home and beach. Thanks Cathy.
The beauty of Willow Beach is the quietness of the location and the 'laid back' philosophy of the people. Very close to Sikes Cut at the west end of the Plantation, Willow Beach sits on a private cu-de-sac. According to my guests, the fastest thing they see while staying at my house are the dolphins frolicing in the waves. Swimming,sunning,surf fishing,walking 4 minutes down the beach to Sikes Cut and doing some serious fishing off the rocks,or just sitting under an umbrella watching the world go by is heaven.
This is 'Old Florida', we still have moss in the oak trees, no glass & chrome highrises, no long lines for terrific restaurants, no hustle & bustle. Just wonderful gentile folks, great cooks (our restaurants are awesome)and great weather!
Apalachicola is a really quaint old town, the third oldest town in Florida, with a rich history of cotton shipping,involvement in the Civil War and being the place where the first ice machine was invented when trying to battle malaria in the 1900's. Touring old antibellum homes and wonderful antiquing are a few of the ways to spend a leisurely day. There is alot to do or nothing to do....your choice....its a place to come and enjoy the natural wonders of the ocean and bay, to be outside and discover another world,to get to become closer to your family, without a lot of distractions, to get married, (we have had that alot at Willow Beach), to share a unique experience with friends...to eat oysters & drink beer & laugh till your side hurt, to get up at dawn and walk the beach, or sleep till noon, because you will not hear sirens, or cars. A vacation at Willow beach is exactly how you want it to be. My home is awesome, just hanging out there is a major treat.....the chefs kitchen is amazing, Paula Deen would love it, the bedrooms are big and spaciaous....the view form all three decks is asounding,its all a great time.
I hope you will consider Willow beach for your next vacation. You will not be disappointed.
