                            Peace and comfort, the smell of the salt air, reading a book on the covered deck overlooking the ocean…AAH. I loved my two weeks at Eagle’s Rest. Buying fresh local catch from the fish seller and cooking it up in the spacious, well stocked kitchen, taking long, invigorating bike rides exploring the nooks and crannies of St George’s island, and sunset walks on the beach enjoying the antics of the dolphins and pelicans, was balm to the soul. I can’t wait to return and enjoy this home away from home, clean, bright, comfortable and airy. Thank you to the owners for creating such a wonderful beach retreat for your guests to relax.

                            We had a lovely time. It was convenient to get to the beach and a short walk to the Bob Sikes cut. The house was well equipped, comfortable, and had plenty of space for our family.

The Blue Parrot had great food and a fun atmosphere. The guys at Journey's were a great source of information. See you soon but not soon enough!

                            God bless you for allowing us the use of Eagle's Rest. It has been over 2 years since our last family vacation. My wife and I are Retail Managers and it's a rare event when we can get time off together. Your hospitality and God's guidance have given us a rest and respite that was desperately overdue. God bless you!

                            We had a great time. House is nicely decorated, and if you are thinking of entertaining, you can set a nice table (unlike some beach places that are mismatched assorted leftovers). Plenty of stylish square white plates and bowls, even a waffle maker and pans to bake with, along with mixer, etc. You won't run out of coffee cups....22....and there is an initial supply of the household essentials (toilet paper, diswasher soap, etc.) so you can hit the ground running when you arrive. Plentiful supply of wine glasses and they all match.....also large bowls, stock pot, and platters. Large table will accomodate large group. Enjoy the dolphins....there are tons of them that swim by in schools. They actually get pretty close when you are in the water.....so that is a treat. Bed linens and towels are nice quality and plentiful. We will definitely plan on visiting again. We had several visitors who like geocaching....and there are evidently plenty of them in the area. Thanks so much.

We so appreciate your taking the time to submit a review. We hope to see you again in the future! Tom and Kelly

                            Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. The house was wonderful and well equipped. We had a nice relaxing week on St George Island. We would have liked more sunshine and less rain but we made the best of it. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck dolphin watching. We made it over to Apalachicola a few times-very quaint town and glad we went over. Thanks again,

                            The ocean view from the property was great and being able to sit out on the porch and enjoy the view even better! I was afraid the online pictures were with a telephoto lens but not the case!!! Having access to a large pool and walking/biking trails was a plus. The master bedroom and bathroom layout was strange as the large jacuzzi tub from the bathroom wrapped around into the bedroom. This allowed all bathroom noise and humidity from showers to come into the bedroom. Since this unit sleeps 10 and there are only two full bathrooms more towel bars in the bathrooms are needed. Updating the bathroom fixtures and enclosing the master bathroom it would be a huge improvement!

                            Owner response: Pam, I'm so glad you enjoyed being so close to the beach and found our pictures on the website to be accurate. One of my favorite things is sitting on the decks and enjoying the view (and fresh brewed coffee) as well! I hope you got lots of looks at dolphins cavorting around. It's a really good spot for that. Sometimes vacation homes are set up a bit differently than regular homes. Another example is our reverse floor plan with the living areas on top to appreciate wonderful beach views in the daytime when you are up and about. I had not thought about adding more towel racks but think it's a good idea and will look into that. Thanks for the suggestion.

                            This is our second time staying at Eagle's Rest and we've enjoyed our stay both times. The property description is accurate and the house is well furnished; nothing fancy, but very comfortable. It's a great house for a family and getting to the beach is just a short walk. We would definitely recommend Eagle's Rest to family and friends.

We are delighted you and your family have enjoyed your stay and that this is your second visit to our home. We are close to the water and I know a short walk to the beach is important for families. We welcome you back anytime! Thank you very much for staying with us. Kelly

                          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.
