Property description

This magnificent house sits above all the houses around it and you have the most breathtaking views up and down the beach. Two sets of large double doors provide an unobstructed view to the Gulf and an entrance to the large covered deck. They also open the home to cool breezes and lots of natural sunlight. You may choose to relax on the covered deck overlooking the pool or fire up the grill for dinner while watching the children swim. The screened porch off the dining room provides a superb spot to dine or have coffee and unwind. Indoors you can enjoy two separate living areas. A wet bar and gas fireplace to be enjoyed on cool evenings are situated in the living area on the lower level. The second living area provides the perfect spot for the kids to watch a movie and unwind after a playful day on the beach or in the pool. The modern kitchen with excellent appliances and granite counter tops provide a delightful atmosphere for cooking or you may visit one of the local eateries for some fresh seafood served up just the way you like it.

Whether you choose to stroll on the beach, go fishing, shelling or stargazing, go out for fine dining, antique shopping, visit the local museums or any of the other many activities available to you, you are sure to have an enjoyable and unforgettable visit while staying at Reel Close.

Location

There is much to explore and enjoy on our 28 mile long and one mile wide barrier island. Uncrowded natural beaches free from highrises, traffic and crowds offer many simple pleasures - excellent fishing, kayaking, outstanding bird watching, and awesome stargazing. The island waters are nationally recognized as a fisherman's paradise. Fresh oysters and shrimp are harvested locally and sold by numerous fresh seafood dealers. You may also enjoy these seafood delicacies at the excellent restaurants on St. George Island and nearby Apalachicola and East Point. Apalachicola has much to offer with its boutiques, art galleries, antique shops, Dixie Theatre presentations, historic museums, live marine exhibit and many excellent restaurants. Bring your own bicycles or rent them from one of the shops and enjoy the island's 6.3 mile bike path. Pack your binoculars for native and migratory bird watching. Gaze at the stars in our magnificient sky, unobstructed by the glare of city lights.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: Reel Close is owned by Dennis and Drew Smith, brothers from Valdosta, GA.

Why Gulf Beaches:
We have vacationed at St. George Island for over 30 years. We used to bring our children to St. George when they were just toddlers. They are grown now and have children of their own..and we still love St. George's family friendly atmosphere as much as ever. We decided that building a larger home at our favorite beach would be perfect for all of us. We got together and had Reel Close custom built in 2005. We chose this location because it had the highest elevation available. We knew that this location would allow for great views and easy access to the pristine, sandy beaches of the Gulf. We have been enjoying it immensely. We hope you will enjoy it just as much as we do.
