About Steven and Deborah Kirschenbaum
Thats me and Deb on the right with our good friends Stan and Chris on the waterfront in Carrabelle. Deb and I both own local Franklin County businesses and were former vacation renters on the Island who decided to stay. Ive been in the Automotive field for almost 30 years and Deb is a local artist and owns The Art of Glass gift shop in Apalachicola. We both do what we can in Franklin county as volunteers and love the choice we made to move south and slow down.
Steven and Deborah Kirschenbaum purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Steven and Deborah Kirschenbaum chose Gulf Beaches
Happydale is close to everything, yet secluded and private. We have a sprawling property that's open yet wooded to screen you from the majority of other properties. The house is big enough to entertain but not so big that its hard to care for. Prior to us it was owned by the parents of a local builder. At night, though not waterfront, our favorite thing to do is sit on the second floor deck in the dark and gaze at the Heavens while listening to the waves roll in on the Gulf.
What makes this Apartment unique
While vacationing at Happydale feel free to make use of our Bicycles and Kayaks. You can cruise around exploring the back roads around the Bay, or ride the length of the bike trail, which spans almost the entire length of the available island. Kayaks can be used in either the Bay or the Gulf and makes for an incredibly enjoyable day on the water.

St. George Island Getaway
Steve and Deborah are Great Host,
We walked on the Beach every morning just a block away and could hear the waves as we slept after watching beautiful sunsets.
We rode our bicycles to eat, around the Island and State Park. Had a Great Fire one evening.

Steve and Deb
Exactly as pictured!
We had a great time! Steve and Debbie were friendly. We honestly only saw them once in the 5 days we were there. Outdoor shower was amazing when coming back from beach. We putted around Island on Golf cart from Journeys! They had best price. Island is completely pet friendly which I loved! Awesome place will definitely recommend for Anyone looking!!
Steve and Deb were so nice and accommodating . We loved how close to the beach we were and how relaxing the apartment was after a long day. We enjoyed using the fire pit also. Our trip was just as we had hoped. Totally relaxing!
Thanks so much glad you both enjoyed your stay hope to see you both again soon.
Steve and Deb
Location of property was perfect for us. Just the right size. Walking distance to the beach side or Bay side of Island. A dog walker's paradise. Bike path runs length of Island. Deb and Steve were very helpful and accommodating. Thanks so much!
We had a very relaxing time at Happydale . The apartment was centrally located to the beach and bay. The accommodations are perfect for a couple looking for time away from the hustle and bustle. Plenty of space to relax and a well equipped kitchen. You can hear the surf from the deck when relaxing in the shade. Steve and Deb were great host. They were always ready to share their knowledge of the island and made us feel at home. We would love to return.
Good space for the price of a hotel room
We loved St George Island and hated to leave. The property is as described, the hosts are very welcoming and generous and even though they occupy the top floor of the house you feel as if you have the place to yourself. Comfortable bed, tv and plenty of space to stretch out when you arent out exploring the island.
If you love the beach, if you want to relax, good food, good friends and good watersports, St George Island is the place to be. Also visit the rest of Franklin County. The best descriptor is if your old enough to remember the Andy Griffith show, the nearby City of Apalachicola is Mayberry, frozen in time. Historic sites, good people, lots of things to do. It truly is the forgotten coast, forgotten in time, frozen in the beauty of a simpler time.
Franklin County and St George are the way the east coast of Florida was 40, 50 years ago. Unspoiled and breathtaking.
