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!
