Property description

This magnificient house sits right on world famous Apalachicola Bay offering spectacular views and access to world-class fishing. With a private boat launch for smaller boats, dock and deep water canal, getting to your favorite fishing spot is a breeze! You can fish for Pompano, Redfish, Tripletail, Flounder, Jack Crevale, and Tarpon. Feel Free to drop a crab trap for some local blue claw or haul a bushel of oysters fresh out of the bay from one of the many oyster bars. Also in the gulf fish for Grouper, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, and Rock Bass.

For those wishing to explore and enjoy our 28 mile long island, the natural beaches, free from traffic and crowds, are just a five minute stroll. Bring a book and plan to spend the day relaxing listening to the surf and children laughing in delight as they chase the waves and build sandcastles. Beach access is available at every cross street. If you are looking for a little more action, sail or powerboats are available for rent, or you can rent a kayak and explore the remote bays and inlets where you might catch a glimpse of a bald eagle over head or a dolphin swimming in the surf. Bikes are also available to rent where you can ride the paved bike trail or head down to the St. George Island State Park for off road trails. Don't forget to visit our Lighthouse and climb the 92 stairs to the top of the Light. The view is amazing!

For the kids, plan for them go on a guided educational adventure through Journeys of SGI while you enjoy some freetime for yourself.

Bay Secrets offers the perfect getaway for a family vacation, reunion, or week spent with your friends! Breath-taking sunsets, fishing off the private dock and being surrounded by nature on St. George Island, this home is sure to please crowds up to 8 guests comfortably. It features 3 bedrooms / 2 baths, two living areas, a spacious kitchen, two decks, and a downstairs game room. Two of the bedrooms have two twin beds in each of them. Feel free to put the beds together to create a king size if you wish! The living areas, both upstairs, are a great way to have a place for the adults to unwind while the kids are able to have a place of their own. Two flat panel LCD TV's, stereo, DVD players, games, puzzles, video library, and books are available in the living areas as well as wireless internet access. Downstairs feel free to sit and relax or play a game of ping pong.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I am the wife of a retired Air Force serviceman, former teacher and current stained glass artisan. Stained glass is my love and I have many of my works displayed around the United States in homes, businesses and churches. I am an 83 year old mother of three and grandmother of six and am actively involved in their activities and future. My husband and I were married 60 years before he passed away last year. During our time together we always loved being at St George Island and creating memories. Now I want to share my house with those that want to share the same experience and make memories of their own!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches:
My family has been coming to St George Island for the last 35 years. We choose this location for family gatherings to reunite and relax while enjoying natures many gifts from breath taking sunsets, abundant fishing, and the dolphins playing in the beautiful Apalichicola Bay. Our gatherings get larger every year and we create memories that will last a life time. My hope is that you will find this house as family friendly that I have and that you create many memories yourself!
