Recent St. George Island reviews

  • What a great place to stay

    "We just returned from our trip to St George and Flying High. Everything was perfect! Your description says the kitchen is well stocked; that does not do it justice. The house was just the right size giving amble room to spread out. We cooked, enjoyed the views, the pool and beach. None of our group wanted to leave. All of the outdoor living areas are fabulous. It was a perfect week and we thank you! We hope to return again next fall."

  • A house with an incredible view!

    "My husband and I totally enjoyed our vacation and your lovely home. The reason why I couldn't give you 5 stars is that our family is made up of old dogs, both human and animals. Sadly, we found the stairs to the front door were just about bearable but then to have to climb another 15 or so hard tile steps up to the living area was a stretch for us. Our dogs had to stay on the first floor as their backs and legs couldn't handle the extra stairs. We both had similar problems. Otherwise, I can truly say that your home is lovely and has everything that one could want to enjoy their stay on the island. This was my husband's first trip to SGI and my 15th or so. We loved it and enjoyed ET's fish and chips and in particular, his oyster special every afternoon from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. For a younger family, this is a perfect home in a lovely area."

  • Wonderful stay

    "Our family enjoyed a fantastic vacation here. It's in a beautiful, peaceful position and we enjoyed great weather in the day, wonderful sunsets in the evening, saw great birds, raccoons, fished and kayaked of the dock. The amazing beach is a very short walk away. The house itself is clean and comfortable with everything you need, but feels like a home. The owner was very helpful and responsive."

  • Wonderful beach, great family time

    "We are a family of 8 adults and one dog that had a fantastic time! A very beautiful home that has plenty of room and privacy with 5 bedrooms and 4 & 1/2 baths. We are from Tampa and drove over 5 hours (passing lots of beaches) to get here and so glad we did! Very peaceful, private, rustic beach (no speed boats, jet skis, no planes flying over with ad banners, no condos or high rise hotels). The home was beautifully decorated and provided everything we needed other than food. We prepared every meal for 5 days and had plenty of dishes, pots & pans. Ping pong was fun in the evenings. The young adults loved the kayak and even took a bike ride to the light house & museum one afternoon; and We took a short walk to the state park along the beach another afternoon. We all agreed that what we will miss most is having every meal together (breakfast, lunch & dinner) on the porch listening to the waves, the gentle breeze and the wonderful view. Lots to do, but everything felt relaxed and slow...the perfect vacation. Also, you can view the sunrise & sunset from the upper porch! Sissel, the owner was excellent to work with and provided quick responses to each of my questions/emails. FYI: bring groceries with you, as the only local market on the island is very expensive with limited choices!"

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.

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.

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.
