St. George Island house description

Attention renters: All valid contracts must be executed by STELLA DOWLING (the sole owner of this home).

This spacious, upscaled custom home has all the amenities needed if you are looking for a dream vacation. Luxurious home has 5 bedrooms, all with their own on-suite bathroom. All bedrooms have a beachfront view, and all bedrooms have sliding glass doos that access beachfront decks.
This home has an open living/dining/kitchen concept with covered decks off the main floor as well as private decks off of each of the bedrooms. The modern kitchen is well equipped for entertaining large groups or for those who like to relax at the beach and prepare their own meals. Equipped with a 5 burner stove, oven, refrigerator, and two dishwashers plus a separate ice maker, granite counter tops, great cookware and utensils help make this kitchen top notch.

The living room has cozy leather sofas, a gas fireplace and large TV. Each of the five beautiful bedrooms opens to a gorgeous ocean view with high quality patio furniture on each level. Relax with a drink on the large back deck or play in the grassy area of the large back yard (back yard makes this property unique). White sand is just a few feet away from the home and beautiful sunsets can be seen from most angles off any of the three floors. Home also comes with an elevator from the ground floor to the first two levels. For those lazy mornings, enjoy your own private coffee maker and refrigerator located on the top floor in the Master Bedroom.

Like to Grill? A Dream to Sea comes equipped with two Park-Style Grills, placed on the nicely landscaped grass lawn. Home has a private pool that can be heated as well as an outdoor hot/cold shower. For those avid fishermen, a fish cleaning area is located off of the garage and comes with a sink.

We have included Multiple TV's, DVD's, VCR's and a well stocked library for your entertainment while not on the beach. In addition, the home has plenty of games, puzzles, and cards for the young at heart.

So if you are looking for the dream vacation you won't be disappointed with 'A Dream To Sea' located on beautiful St. George Island, Florida.
Please note: THIS IS A NON-SMOKING, PET FREE ENVIRONMENT.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: Currently we reside in Roswell, Georgia. We love watching college football, cooking and spending time at home, either in Roswell or at St. George Island. NOTE* The map is incorrectly marked. Our home is to the lower left of the marked area.

              Why the Owner Chose St. George Island:
              Avid Florida State University football fans, we chose this location due to its proximity to Tallahassee, which is only 75 miles away. We love the idea that there are bike paths on the island and are designated for bikers and walkers. Small family style restaurants make it fun to dine out in a casual setting and the oysters are the best in the US! We fell in love with the quaintness of this island and the beautiful waters on the Gulf of Mexico.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              While staying at A Dream To Sea, we love to visit Appalchicola for their famous oysters on the half shell. We also enjoy the offseason having quiet walks on the beach. Unlike Panama City, Florida and Destin, Florida, St. George Island offers a family type atmosphere and is never crowded even during the summer months. This is not a 'Spring Break' destination if you are looking for a party yet it offers enough activities that most families will enjoy spending a break away from home here.
