The beautiful landscaping and waterfront view offer a great background for family entertainment. Two sets of large double doors provide an unobstructed view of the bay 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 bay or watch the spectacular sunsets from the custom built benches on the dock, the custom built benches at the water's edge or from the large swing beneath the house.

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Sunset Point is owned by Dennis and Drew Smith, brothers from Valdosta, GA.

Why the Owner Chose 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 Sunset Point custom built-in 2005. We chose this location because it has the island's best views of the Apalachicola Bay. This location provides easy access to the bay for fishing and boating and most important of all, it provides the perfect spot to enjoy the spectacular sunsets.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunset Point is located in a quiet, secluded neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly. We enjoy being on the water, boating, fishing and kayaking. Just being outdoors in this beautiful setting is remarkable.
