Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island
About Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island
"Eagle's Rest" is professionally managed by Resort Vacation Properties, the largest and most dedicated vacation management company on St. George Island. We are pleased to care for Tom and Kelly's home. Here's a little about them: Hello! We are Tom and Kelly 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 Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island 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.
What makes this House unique
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.
Great location however the islands mosquitoes were vicious! The dishwasher didn’t run correctly, but other than those two things it was a great vacation!
Christmas Vacation 2017
We stayed at this property the last week of 2017 and we absolutely loved it. It is well kept and maintained, full equipped kitchen, great location. We definitely would recommend it to any one. The island is beautiful, you could rent bikes and go around the property.
Our family had a great time and would be back for sure.
Seclusion on St. George Island!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Eagle's Rest during our first visit to St. George Island over spring break. The location of Eagle's Rest within the Plantation is ideal in that you enjoy an unobstructed ocean view, but are set back a little from the beach, which allows for peace and seclusion. The careful and planned development in the Plantation preserves the natural beauty of St. George Island, which leads to a more restful vacation experience.
Our family really spent many relaxing hours watching dolphins swim in the ocean from the comfortable chairs and chaise lounges on the new decks at Eagle's Rest. The covered decks were perfect for enjoying the ocean view and warm breezes, in a peaceful, shaded location. We loved the newly renovated master bathroom with quartz countertop and glass shower, and also appreciated the new washer and dryer. The beach chairs and boogie boards were put to good use, as was the garden hose for rinsing off sandy feet before entering the house!
Our teenage children enjoyed the Plantation clubhouse swimming pool, tennis courts, and exercise room. The staff at the Plantation clubhouse and at Resort Vacation Properties were friendly and helpful. Even though it was spring break, the beach in front of Eagle's Rest was quiet. We enjoyed many pleasant walks to Bob Sikes Cut, collecting shells and fishing from the beach.
In summary, our family really enjoyed our first visit to St. George Island. Thank you Kelly and Tom, for sharing Eagle's Rest with us, and for promptly responding to our questions. Your suggestions and advice were very helpful. We hope to return soon!
Thank you Catherine for your informative and thoughtful review. Tom and I really appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts with us and our future guests. We are so pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay and you got to see lots of dolphins! We look forward to having you return to St. George Island and Eagle's Rest.
We really enjoyed our stay!
We loved the area and would highly recommend Eagles Rest to others.
Thank you Brandy for your review. We are so glad you had a wonderful time at Eagle's Rest and St. George and we look forward to your next visit! Tom and Kelly
Review of one month stay at Eagle's Rest at St. George Island, Florida.
My familly and friends and friends spent a great month in this rental, one onr the best houses we have ever rented. House was clean, updated appliances, easy to live in, great views of the ocean, and really maintained. Excellent beach access, beautiful master bedroom and bath, and open floor plan on main floor. It felt like a home away and look forward to renting again.
HI Bob, Thank you so much for your review. We appreciate your taking the time to post it and we look forward to your next visit!

A Most Excellent Beach Vacation
If you haven’t been to St. George - GO! Beautiful area. We loved the house. The layout works well in that all bedrooms are on the bottom floor and the living area/kitchen are upstairs. HGTV would be proud of the newly renovated master bath. Sleek and modern. The living area/ kitchen is one big open room upstairs. Porch views are uninhibited by other houses; dolphins and their entourage were seen every day. We suggested to Kelly and Tom to get some type of chaise lounge for the decks as this area promotes sleep. This house is close to the southern end of the beach which seemed to make it more private. Very nice house with wonderful, responsive owners.

Thank you Maria,
We so appreciate your kind review and are so glad you and your family had a wonderful time at Eagle's Rest and St. George Island. We are really happy you liked the new master bath as we are too!
Thank you for your suggestion of the chaise lounges. Now that the decks have been expanded we have room for them and I have two beautiful ones on order due to arrive middle of July. We would love to have you and your family back for your next trip to beautiful St. George Island otherwise known as "Paradise". Tom and Kelly
