About the area

Located just off North Florida's Gulf Coast, the 28-mile St. George Island is one of the last inhabited yet unspoiled barrier islands in Florida – and it is a serene vacation paradise. The island consistently rates as one of the top beaches in the U.S., with miles of uncrowded beaches for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and fishing, and pristine marshes for wildlife viewing. The island is protected by low-density zoning and strict building codes, this makes St. George a tranquil beach community with no high rises or chain stores. There is also a state park, campground and many nature trails.

Most relaxing vacation of all time!

We had the absolute perfect vacation at Shug's Place! There were only a few people on the beach the entire week! It was wonderful! The kids fished, paddle boarded, kayaked, skim boarded, and biked everywhere. We brought our fat tire bikes and biked on the beach and the wonderful bike trail. The state park was incredibly beautiful. This is definitely a new favorite destination for our family. It was perfect. The house was very clean when we arrived. The only problem we had was with the dishwasher. We called Lucas and it was repaired within an hour! Talk about service! It had not been plugged in after all new flooring had been installed. The house is equipped with everything you may need. Most night we grilled the wonderful fresh seafood you can buy on the island. We would dine on the deck and watch the dolphins. Every morning the kids would eat breakfast on the deck as well. The dolphins put on quite a show. Apalachicola is only a few minutes away. We loved the quaint restaurants and shops. It is a fun place to stroll, dine and shop. It is not touristy. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle this is the place. It is very low key and relaxing. We can't say enough good things about the property and the Smith family! They were a pleasure to deal with. They were very helpful and welcoming. Any question was answered within minutes. Our deposit was returned within a week. We are hoping to rent this property again very soon!

I have never had a more relaxed vacation! The house was perfect for our group, you could not get closer to the beach if you had to! Very private pool and beach front! The kitchen is fully stocked with anything you need to cook a full meal for a large group! House is very clean, well equipped and maintained! I plan on staying at this home for many more years to come! Owner is very responsive to ANYTHING we had questions about! The location is spot on to everything on the perfect little island!

Great location and very well maintained. This was definitely the cleanest property we have ever stayed in. Perfect setup for large families or multiple families. Very minor maintenance issue was resolved quickly. Would absolutely recommend this property and would consider staying there again. You can tell that the owner takes pride in caring for their property and guests.

Fabulous Home Away from Home with Picture Perfect, Panaramic Beach Front!!!

Date of Stay

Shug's Place was a fabulous home away from home with picture perfect, panaramic beach front for our 41st wedding anniversary celebration! The home was obviously well-maintained, clean, comfortably cozy and truthfully depicted by its interior/exterior photos and amenities description. While the two of us didn't utilize all of the bedrooms/bathrooms, there was plenty of room for larger groups to socialize and yet, have privacy. We loved waking each morning to beautiful sunrises, a waterfront view from the bedroom windows and drinking coffee on the upper deck, watching porpoises on their daily excursions. There was nothing better than the refreshing, clear waters of the gulf, shell hunting on beach walks and taking dips in our own private pool! Also, having a laundry room was an added plus! Lucas Smith, owner, was a delight to work with in securing this property rental and provided lots of good and timely information to ensure an incredibly great vacation for us. Any questions from our end received a quick response and the security deposit was returned in less than a week. Our memorable week on SGI was relaxing, rejuvenating, full of delicious seafood and an absolute blast! We are already planning to return to Shug's Place and appreciate the Smith Family sharing their "piece of Heaven on Earth" with us! Thank you!!!

We had a wonderful time at Shug's Place. This was our first time staying on St George Island and "wow" what great beaches and a great house to enjoy our stay in. The house is right on the beach and was very clean. The pool was very refreshing and we used it a lot. Lucas, the owner, was accessible and answered any question we had. We would certainly recommend this house to our friends and definitely want to go back.

The house was excellent, had everything we could possibly need and the location was great, dolphins swimming right off the deck in the mornings and I cannot ever remember seeing so many stars out at night! First time vacationers at SGI, will be back!

Perfect Vacation Spot

This was our second stay at Shug's Place and once more we had a wonderful vacation. The house felt like home to us all. A few little quirks here and there but Lucas, the owner, is on top of it immediately. The rooms were big, bright and clean. The kitchen was well equipped so we ended up cooking when we hadn't even planned on it. The kids loved having their own place downstairs and the laundry was right there for them to use. No wet bathing suits upstairs. Being right on the beach is worth the extra dollars, and the private pool was wonderful for those who aren't fond of sand. And the fact that we are so close to Eastpoint and Appalachicola is a bonus, because we have the best oysters and shrimp in the South available in several restaurants and fish markets. All said, I hope we are able to vacation in this same home next time we are on St. George.
