Property description

Come relax at one of the best beachfront homes in the Plantation on St. George Island.

Sea La Vie is not your typical beach rental, with low-grade furnishings and sleeper sofas and bunk beds crammed in every nook and cranny in order to maximize the number of guests per rental.

Our home features hardwood floors throughout and is comfortably furnished in a calming, neutral palette. The layout of our home gives each guest / couple maximum privacy, with each bedroom enjoying an en suite private bath.

The house offers unobstructed 180 degree views of the gulf from most rooms. The living and dining area extend to the HUGE screened porch, with 10 rocking chairs, a large swing and large teak dining table to relax on after a long day on the beach.

The gourmet kitchen has everything you need to have a shrimp boil, shuck fresh oysters and make homemade ice cream for dessert! The home also features a fish cleaning / oyster shucking area as well as an outdoor picnic charcoal grill.

Sea La Vie features a flat screen television with HD satellite TV, Blu-ray, and Netflix and Amazon streaming. The house is also equipped with Wi-Fi and high speed internet service. We recently installed a cell signal booster, allowing you to get a strong cellphone signal throughout our home.

When the day is done, retreat to one of 5 bedrooms, each with an en suite bath. Three of the bedrooms have beachfront porch access as well!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We purchased this property as an escape from our hectic lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We were looking for a place that is remote and relaxing. We love peace and quiet, and simply do not enjoy a beach or restaurants that are packed with people. We have enough stress at work, we don't need it on vacation! Our home is not your typical rental. It will feel very much like you are at home at the beach!

Why the Owner Chose Plantation:
We treat Sea La Vie as our home away from home, not just as a rental property. As such, Sea La Vie features more high end finishes and furnishings than you will typically find in local rental homes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
* Each bedroom has a private en suite bath. * 3 of 5 bedrooms have beachfront porch access * The Plantation amenities are available to our guests, including pool, tennis, and fitness center.
