Recent St. George Island reviews

  • Would love to be there still!

    "We stayed in Chasing Pirates for a month recently. This home is the best I've stayed in on St George. It has a home like atmosphere that is unusual in a rental. The furniture was extremely comfortable and interior decor is beautiful. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and the bedrooms were comfortable and storage was great. Short walk to the beach and the beach view from the house is totally unobstructed. We saw many beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the comfortable porches. I honestly can't say enough nice things about this home. You can certainly feel the pride that the owner has put into this beach house."

  • hated to leave !!

    "this was our first trip to St. George Island and we selected this home on VRBO what an outstanding choice we made. Kaylee at the rental office was extremely helpful and answered all of our questions and made our stay more enjoyable they also gave us a big discount as we rented a golf cart for our stay as well. My wife loves to cook and she had enjoyed the nice Viking stove and beautiful kitchen. We had a wonderful getaway saw lots of dolphins right outside our deck. We would like to give three thumbs up to the owners of the property as the furniture in the living area appeared to be new as well as a great entertainment system with a flatscreen television which i enjoyed seeing the ballgames. The linens and bedrooms were extremely comfortable as well. We had no issues with the home. We have already recommended this place to friends and we are booking this place again for next summer already."

  • Wonderful

    "The house was beautiful and the location was perfect. Very clean. Very well equipped, quiet and close to everything. Easy walk or bike ride to beach, restaurants, shopping etc. Solid food and very well trained staff at Blue Parrot where we ate several meals. Rented kayaks, paddleboards and bikes from Jolly Roger. Pretty good equipment that was discounted more with each additional item. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The grill could use an upgrade but that was our only (very minor) gripe. Great fishing! The walking path to the beach ends at a stretch of beach that was oddly and wonderfully almost empty. Crowds to the left and right each day but almost nobody on that beautiful part of the beach including Memorial Day weekend. Aargh house was great."

  • Terrific Thanksgiving!!

    "We had a FABULOUS Thanksgiving week at the Stardust Villa. The home is great. The windows provided an absolute wonderful view of the ocean. We were playing cards on the dining room table and were able to see a group of dolphins swim by. The family took full advantage decks to outdo each other tanning. We took advantage of the available bikes and bike path, exercise facility (several times) and running and walking the neighborhood. The paths in between the cul-de-sacs worked great for this. We took advantage of the nice weather for shell gathering and came away with some great looking shells. The boardwalk to the beach was close enough for our 84 year old mother to walk to the beach. And being a tennis playing family, we took advantage of the available tennis rackets and court to play a set. It was just an overall relaxing and enjoyable week. For Thanksgiving, the kitchen was fully outfitted with every imaginable pot/pan, even a Turkey roaster, and plenty of containers for the leftovers. And the local market was even open early Thanksgiving morning to allow us to pick up a few items needed for the meal. The beds were very comfortable and the perfect number for all six of us. This is definitely a house we will come back to. The owners even called to check to see how our stay was going. They were the best!"

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.
