Plantation house description

WATCH THE SUNSET OVER APALACHICOLA BAY!

Winter sale:

December, 2015 - Inquire for any two weeks or longer for a good discount.


If a swimming pool is important for your vacation, ask for dimensions. Many SGI homes have really tiny swimming pools. See the schematic included with pictures for the exact manufacturer's measurements of our pool.


***See link to owner's web page below for many more pictures and more information on the house and area.***



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.

This beautiful bay view house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac road in the Plantation, a famous, gated community that has preserved the natural beauty of the barrier island. The Plantation has extensive bike trails, a community pool, 3 different tennis courts, and a rock jetty (The Cut) famous for excellent fishing. After a day of outdoor activities, the private screened pool overlooking the marshes will entice you to relax and enjoy the great view and the local bird community. The house also has an enclosed outdoor shower and a fish cleaning sink.

This house has two separate living room areas, each with a flat-panel cable TV, 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.

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About: We are retired snowbirds who plan to stay at 'A Bay to Remember' each January through April. Because we have a very different lifestyle on St. George Island, a new set of friends, etc., we call it our 'Alternate Reality.'

              Why Plantation:
              We discovered St. George Island during the winter of 2003/2004 after an extensive search for an ideal winter rental location. We like to be active and SGI offers extensive hiking and biking trails, as well as 20 miles of beach (we have hiked every inch of those 20 miles). In addition, the mainland north of the island is fantastic for river canoeing and kayaking. We love the beauty of SGI, with none of the overdevelopment so common throughout Florida. After renting on SGI for several years, we purchased 'A Bay to Remember' in September, 2008.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              If you like elbow room and privacy, you will love 'A Bay to Remember.' ABTR is on a one-acre lot with all adjacent lots currently undeveloped. Pictures do not do justice to the views toward Apalachicola Bay. We often find ourselves just looking out the windows. ABTR has 100% tile floors, which are vastly superior to carpet with an island climate and pet rentals.
