Recent St. George Island reviews

  • Lovely house

    "This was our first visit to St. George Island and it was lovely. Serenity Now is just a five minute walk to the beach and they provide chairs and toys and a wagon to get it all there! We loved having the heated pool during the cool evenings in March. We swam every night. The house was perfect for our family of five. Plenty of room for everyone to have their space. The kitchen was very functional with all the right cooking implements. We rented bikes from Island Adventures and they were great to work with. Serenity Now is about 1.5 miles from "town" and we biked in a couple times for dinner. We had thought we would bike to the state park but it was too far. I will point out that the house is on the main drag of the island so there was almost always traffic in front of the house. But from the upstairs porches, you can see the ocean and that is a beautiful sight!"

  • Home away from Home! Perfect Home

    "What a great place to stay!! This House is PERFECT! Our family had a very relaxing vacation. The perfect get away. Our family enjoyed swimming by the pool, lying out on the beach, going for walks, fishing, the great view, easy access to the beach, riding the golf cart and exploring the area. St. George Island was very quiet. The worry free environment was just what we needed. My two year old nephew was so comfortable he referred, Almost Heaven as “his” beach house. The bedrooms were perfect for sleeping arrangements. The owner was great to work with and even checked to make sure we were having a good time. Thanks Avery for making our family of 11 feel like we had a home away from home. We will be back to stay again."

  • Wonderful vacation at Morningside by the Sea!

    "We greatly enjoyed our stay at Morningside by the Sea. The home was very clean and ready for our arrival. The home had (has) a well-stocked kitchen in terms of utensils, pots, pans, etc. The beds were great and had (has) nice linens. The owner of the unit was a pleasure to deal with as was the rental firm. The beach is a very close walk nearby. I like that the unit is in a gated community; there were never more than 5-6 other people nearby on the beach (first week of April). This unit is great for families with teenagers who need their own space, or for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. But I wouldn't recommend this unit for families with small children as the two smaller bedrooms are on the 1st floor and the MBR is on the 2nd floor. I would also not recommend this property for older folks (or those with knee problems or other disabilities, etc.) who may have trouble navigating the tight narrow stairwell up to the 2nd floor where the MBR, kitchen, and family room are relocated. A suggestion for the owner would be to dramatically improve the LCD TV (incredibly small, and poor reception) & DVD combo in the family area. The home also has a very nice large screened in porch with a picnic table, rocking chairs, etc. (but again on the 2nd floor). Lots of stair-climbing in this home. But would definitely stay here again! Just a note that there are no restaurants in the gated community, and only a handful outside the gated community on St. George Island. If you're looking for 'night life' or a wide selection of eateries, St. George isn't the place (4-5 restaurants on the island, plus a Subway sandwich shop). But if you're looking for a quaint small mostly undeveloped community where everyone is friendly and you can feel safe, then I highly suggest St. George Island!"

St. George Island Travel Tips

Just off of Florida's Gulf Coast you'll find St. George Island, a serene 28-mile stretch filled with unspoiled beaches and natural beauty, amazing fishing opportunities and the cool, laid-back lifestyle synonymous with island living.

This Floridian island won't be overly crowded, so you don't have to worry about sharing your perfect spot of sand. You can truly relax as you enjoy the gorgeous blue water, peaceful waves and warm breezes. Fishermen (and women) will find ample opportunities to cast a line and possibly hook speckled trout, redfish, whiting, flounder, snapper, grouper, mackerel and many more species of fish from around the shores and piers.

St. George Island also boasts plenty of nature to explore, whether you want to plan group hikes, bike rides or animal watching. From parks to marshes, there are tons of places to see local flora and fauna. For indoor fun, the island offers excellent shopping options for some retail therapy or to find the perfect souvenir in addition to delectable dining options where fresh seafood is a must and a thrilling nightlife where you can enjoy your favorite libation at a local bar, listen to live music and dance the night away.

Things to Do on St. George Island

Cape St. George Light and Keeper's House Museum: Learn about a bit of the island's history at the Cape St. George Light, a 72-foot brick lighthouse. The original structure stood for 153 years until it fell in 2005, but it was restored in 2008. Today visitors can climb the 92 steps to the top of the light and check out the unbeatable bird's eye view. Next to the lighthouse you'll find a replica of the original Keeper's House that's now a museum and gift shop. Inside you can see exhibits about the history of the lighthouse as well as a collection of artifacts. There's even an audio-visual interactive archive where you can check out videos, documents and photographs.

Sea Oats Art Gallery: Art lovers will want to plan a trip to the Sea Oats Art Gallery, which opened in 1996 and features the largest collection of art on the Forgotten Coast from local artists and craftspeople. The selections are constantly evolving, and there are currently about 80 artists showing their work throughout the space. As you peruse the gallery you may get the chance to meet a local artist or craftsperson dropping off their latest work, all of which reflects the island lifestyle. If you're interested in making art, the gallery also hosts workshops throughout the year.

St. George Island Public Beach: At least one day (or many) at the beach is a must when visiting this Florida spot, and St. George Island Public Beach is a great option. It's easily accessible and offers stunning views. Find the perfect place to lay down your beach towel and settle in to soak up the sun, catch up on a hard-to-put-down book, build the world's best sandcastle, throw the Frisbee. Dive right in the warm waters for a swim or try and catch a wave. Not only is the beach user-friendly, but there are pavilions for a delicious picnic, a playground for the kids and a ball court. You're sure to enjoy a lovely day filled with tons of fun. You'll also be able to see the lighthouse from the beach.

St. George Island State Park: To spend some quality time in nature, head to St. George Island State Park where you can enjoy a day of outdoor activities including boating, kayaking, hiking, canoeing, swimming and more. Paddle out onto the waters or grab a map and plan out an exhilarating hike. No matter what you do, keep an eye for the local wildlife, including turtles and birds. When you need to refuel, the park offers picnic areas with grills for a delectable meal al fresco.

Dining on St. George Island

Blue Parrot Oceanfront Cafe: Dining out while on vacation is always a joy because you get to experience to the local flavors of the place you're visiting. For exceptional fresh seafood and amazing water views, head to Blue Parrot Oceanfront Cafe. Dine on the outdoor decks, or if it's too hot, take your meal in the air-conditioned dining room. The cafe is right on the beach, making it a perfect place to sip a fruity daiquiri, pina colada or other beverage. Some menu favorites include conch fritters, seafood gumbo, stuffed grouper and crab cakes. Meat lovers have plenty of options as well including steaks, chicken and burgers. After your meal, you can rent a jet ski and have some fun on the water.

Harry A’s: Another great dining option is Harry A's where you can get breakfast, lunch, dinner or a late-night snack. It's a laid-back place and they even have a kid's menu for the little ones. Some top dishes here include oysters, sandwiches, pizza, salads and, of course, the catch of the day. Dine inside or out on the patio.
