Plantation house description

Beautiful beach house in a breath-taking gated community.

Feel like you've stepped back in time as you drive through Apalachicola with its quaint shops, restaurants, and shrimp/oyster boats. There's lots to see and do (and eat!) in this historic fishing town. Next, head across two loooong bridges, over some of the best oyster beds in the world, taking you further out into the gulf. As you approach St. George Island, the historic lighthouse and museum grow on the horizon to greet you. The island offers a pristine state park on the east end, a nice town center with a few restaurants, and the plantation gated-community on the west end. You'll immediately see the striking white sand beaches on the gulf and remarkable marsh-scapes on the bay side. Your home-away-from-home is west. After stopping to check-in at the gate, drive in and welcome the quiet serenity and peace as you drive through the beautiful landscape of The Plantation - winding around tennis courts, swimming pools, bike paths, and a private airport runway. Your destination is amidst beautiful homes on acre lots, at the end of a quiet street, surrounded by sand dunes. You're excitement grows as you realize you are not staying next to the beach, but on the beach! A tropically land-scaped acre of heavenly beachfront property plus a beautiful luxury 4-bedroom home to spoil you and your family.

Swim on Inn has 2 King beds, 1 Queen, 2 Twin bunk beds and a twin day bed in 4 spacious bedrooms.

Cooks will be delighted with the wonderfully outfitted kitchen. And with 2 separate living areas, everyone will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their beach vacation.

Decks on every level of the house, each with an inspiring view of the white sand and clear water, and a ground floor deck with gazebo. Start watching for the dolphins, sea turtles, and your other marine neighbors.

No condos, no crowds, just you and a picturesque slice of nature.

By the time you arrive, you will feel the stress melt away. So much to do... or so little... your choice. Swim on Inn - and enjoy your vacation!

              Things to do:

              Beach it!

              Look for shells.

              Grab a fishing rod and reel in your dinner.

              Visit the beautiful St. George Island Lighthouse.

              Bicycling/Walking - The island has miles of paved bike paths.

              Bird watching...all year long.

              Launch a kayak or stand-up paddle board into either the Bay or Gulf.

              Rent a wave runner and zip across the gulf.

              Museums - Franklin County has museums spread out all across the county.

              Photography - The island is a photographer's paradise with a stunning shot around every corner...not to mention lots of shots of your family having fun!

              Look up at the stars - without all the bright lights at night, you might just spy a falling star.

              State Park - Spend the day at Julian G. Bruce State Park on the east end of the island.

              Apalachicola - View the historic homes, wander through the shops...and be sure to eat some of the best tasting oysters on the Gulf.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: My husband has lived in several places throughout the U.S. He attended college at both Georgia Tech and the University of Texas in Austin (Go Yellow Jackets and Longhorns!!) I have lived throughout the U.S., England and Indonesia. I am extremely proud to have served in the U.S. Marine Corps! We have three children between us and 2 grandchildren. Our oldest daughter lives just down the street from us with her husband and daughter, our second son is serving our country in the U.S. Air Force and lives with his family in Louisiana and our youngest son still lives at home and is just getting ready to start high school.

              Why the Owner Chose Plantation:
              Our family has always loved the beach. We love those little unique spots...the quiet and the laid back. St. George is just that type of island. With its miles of walking and bicycle paths, beautiful sand beaches and lack of high rises and bumper-to-bumper traffic...we knew this was The place for us! We have found the island is truly a place to slow down from our very hectic lives and spend quality time with our family and friends. We feel truly blessed to have found our home on the island and we hope you find the peace and serenity we do when you visit our home away from home.
