Recent St. George Island reviews

  • Fun vacation beach home!

    "The house is a cute beach home which we thoroughly enjoyed. Very relaxing. Spotless and well equipped! We had a great time. This home will definitely be a return if we come to St. George Island again and we will recommend to friends. The owners needs to update their photos to show the white kitchen and granite counter tops and reflect the open airy feeling of the open concept living/dining/kitchen area with cathedral ceilings. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The split plan bedrooms provide wonderful privacy. Our grandchildren loved the pool and of course the beach just across from the house. Wonderful ocean view. Biking was fun for all of us due to the proximity to the center of town: basketball courts,playground, lighthouse, restaurants, shopping and visiting a wonderful gallery of local artists. We enjoyed the bike path which runs along the lot in back of home and we rode to the state park and several other areas. The outdoor shower and hose were great to wash the dog and grands after a day at the beach!!! The dog has as much fun as we did. Apalachicola was a fun town full of great restaurants and galleries...interesting museums. Advise: buy your food before coming on the island (island stores very pricey)....except for sea food....seafood trucks sell fresh seafood daily. Thanks for sharing your enjoyable home."

  • Great Condo

    "This is a great condo. Very nice furnishings and décor. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. You will want for nothing. Large bedrooms with flat screen TVs in each. The master bedroom and bath are amazing. There are recent updates in kitchen and every bathroom as well as new flooring. There are even hair dryers provided in the bathrooms. It is close to the pool which is a plus and close to boardwalk to the beach. Every bedroom has its own balcony and you can see the beach/ocean from every balcony. The owners couldn't be nicer to deal with."

  • The Perfect Combination of Value & Quality

    "The combination of location, living space, room flow, views, sunlight, decor, good maintenance, cleanliness, comfortable seating, inside the quietude of the Plantation makes this house a superior value. We have rented at SGI for years and this is by far the best combination of desired characteristics we have found. How much did we enjoy our January 2015 stay? For the first time, we put a deposit down for the house same time next year. We look forward to visiting Playita Mia next year."

  • Celebrating 60

    "We just returned from 4 wonderful days!!!! It was myself and 12 of the other women in my family. WE HAD THE BEST TIME! There was room for everyone to sleep, plenty of showers and the table fit us all to play games, cards or eat. We brought all forms of food so we did not have to go out. The pool and hot tub were perfect also. Maybe more lawn chairs needed by the pool but other than that... perfect! The walk to the beach is short and we were the only people on the beach! The trip was amazing!!!!! The house was spacious and fit us perfect. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone with a large group"

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.
