                                    We enjoyed our stay and especially liked the large size of the house, which included enough garage space to park our 23' boat (out of the sun). At the very end of St. George, it is fairly secluded so the beach was not too crowded, making for a good family location, especially with the pool. There were also ample TVs to satisfy our large group when we "hid" from the sun and an unpublicized feature was 2 cable systems (HBO in master bedroom). There were a couple of caveats: the secluded location limits food choices somewhat - we were disappointed eating out and local grocery stores are small. Also, even with our large 4-wheel drive vehicle, the nearby boat ramp was difficult due to wet soft sand and large slippery rocks meant to help traction (we required an assist from another 4wd because we bogged down).

                                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, families with young children.

                                    We have enjoyed staying in Fish Finder for several years now and it feels like our very own Southern Home. We started there with our parents and now share the experience with our daughter. The fishing, biking, shelling and walks on the beach are a great way to forget the stresses of living in the frozen Tundra.

                                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, sightseeing, age 55+, adventure seekers.

                                    Nestled at the sunset end of private St. George Island Plantation, adjacent to Bob Sikes Cut and the Gulf of Mexico, Fish Finder is a fisherman's paradise. Every bedroom has a water view and the 3rd/4th floors have great views of the cut and gulf. We like the functionality of the house - a large enclosed garage which keeps fishing gear, boats, and vehicles out of the sea spray - just steps to the cut and gulf for great fishing - convenient places for launching kayaks and other small boats - nice wide screened and unscreened decks - a top deck that is perfect for star gazing - and a refreshing pool that is a nice break after a day at the beach.

                                    We've been going to Fish Finder annually for about a decade or more. We love the location, view, and feeling of owning the beach in the off season. The fishing is phenomenal year-round, and it's the only place where we have seen dolphins daily. It's the cure to the daily grind.

                                    we rented Fish Finder the week Ike visited Houston, waves were awesome! Fish Finder is a great house, pool is a nice added feature. House is very roomy. Really good view for a beachside property. We will for sure be at Fish Finder again!

                                  We chose to buy a home to live in this area, we were not looking for a vacation rental, when we had kids we decided to move across the bay to apalachicola 'on the mainland' mainly for schools and activities. We then started to rent our island home.
