                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Hello! We are Tom and Kelly Townson and bought our house on St. George Island with the hopes of hanging onto it till retirement. We've rented it for several years and it has been a good experience for us. We still have it after putting 3 kids through college and are only 2-3 years away from our dream coming true! We love St. George and the beautiful beaches, amazing sea life and wonderful people that call the island home. It really is a magical place and we are very blessed to be here. Come see for yourself. If you need a place to relax, slow down and enjoy family or friends, this is the place to do all that. You will receive a warm welcome at Eagle's Rest.

                  Why the Owner Chose Plantation:
                  We love the quiet and solitude of unspoiled natural Florida. The sea oats, the piney woods, the herons, ospreys and pelicans that wade or skim over the water. The dolphins doing acrobatics out of the water for the sheer joy of it. The sound of the waves and the utter peacefulness of this place. When we bought our house, there was no one between us and Bob Sikes Cut. It has grown a lot over the last 20 years but the things that drew us here are still here and so are we.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love shopping in Apalach, touring the Victorian homes in May, eating at the Grill and BJ's and The Blue Parrot. Some of our favorite things are walking down to Bob Sikes Cut or sitting in our rockers and watching the dolphins cavort in front of the house while having some home roasted coffee. The beach changes for each season and it's always so interesting to see the different shells, the changes in the shoreline, the activity of the birds. We enjoy sharing our home with our guests and knowing that it is blessing other families. We've gotten so many nice notes over the years- from honeymooners to young families to many generations vacationing together. We like to think many happy memories are made at Eagle's Rest. We'd like to invite you to be part of that story.
