|Per week:||$1,195 - $2,195|
Description of the St George Island vacation home rental
This house has two separate living room areas, each with a flat-panel cable TV (104 channels + 19 movie channels), that can easily accommodate two families. The wrap-around deck and the screened porch provide an unobstructed view. Two large decks facing the bay are furnished with Adirondack chairs and a hammock, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the great view of the bay and marshes. Beds include one king, one queen, and one bunk bed consisting of a lower-queen and single-upper.
Each bedroom is a master suite featuring a private bathroom and a majestic view of the bay and marshes (paradise for bird watchers). Glass doors slide open from each room onto a wrap-around deck with a screened-in porch. There are two separate living areas, a well-equipped kitchen, ceramic tile, and a beautifully landscaped PRIVATE SCREENED POOL overlooking the marshes. Three blocks away (on quiet roads or trails) to the beach, dunes, and tennis courts.

Nearby on the mainland are two small fishing villages (Apalachicola, Eastpoint). Many celebrities, like Jimmy Buffet, have come here for fishing trips. Various boat tours can also be arranged. There are excellent, fun, casual restaurants in the area, many outstanding for seafood. Apalachicola has interesting historical buildings, great small shops, a small theater hosting occasional plays and concerts, a cemetery dating to the civil war, a wonderful boardwalk (Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve) through Florida “jungle”, and a couple of small nice parks for your dog walks.
About one hour away is Wakulla Springs State Park. The cult film “Creature from the Black Lagoon” and several old Tarzan movies starring Johnny Weissmuller were filmed here. Take the riverboat tour to see alligators, snakes, many species of birds, and some fantastic scenery. Tallahassee, the capital of Florida, is 1 ½ hours away with 2-3 different scenic drives to arrive there. Tallahassee is a wonderful city with much to do.

It was everything that the website presented it to be. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable & pleasant vacation. We liked the privacy the most, not only is it in a gated community, but it is also by itself at the end of a culdesac. We were not able to enjoy the beautiful pool very much, but it was only due to the time of year & the water hadn't had a chance to warm up just yet. The owner was very helpful in making the booking process a smooth one that I was able to be comfortable with. We would definately return to this house & I would recommend it to anyone that wants to relax and get away from the fast paced world.
You won't forget it!
