4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bath First Tier House with Great Views and a Private Pool
About Doug Carter
My wife and i have always loved the beach and even as poor graduate students many years ago dreamed of owning a place of our own. We live in Macon, Ga which is only a 5 hour drive away from St George so we are able keep a close eye on our home. We love the cozy, relaxed feel of southern small towns and fell in love with St George and Apalachicola when we started vacation there many years ago.
Doug Carter purchased this House in 2012
Why Doug Carter chose Plantation
We have been vacationing with family on St George Island since our kids were little. we had always dreamed of owning a place here and in 2012 we had the good fortune to find this property. By investing some sweat equity have been able to continue to upgrade this property. It is the perfect size for our extended family and we all look forward to gathering each summer for a fun time together even as our children have grown.
What makes this House unique
Across the street from the beach but with ocean views this house is the perfect for a beach vacation without the price of a beachfront rental. Near the "Cut" it is the perfect place to fish or venture down in the evening and watch the sun set over Little St George and the Bay. (Also the perfect place for that family photo!) The house features large gathering area for sharing meals, playing games or just relaxing together. A ping pong table and a basketball court is also on site where the kids (and adults) can play together. And the private pool on site is also ready for you when you want to take a dip. Perhaps you just want a little time to sit and enjoy the ocean breezes while listening to the surf. Enjoy your morning coffee or sit outside in the afternoon on the upper porch and relax. Or if you just want some solitude while the kids play enjoy the private porches off the master bedrooms or take some time and relax in the jetted tubs in the master baths. Need a place to recharge come enjoy 4C&SAND. We have enjoyed it and hope you will too.

perfect beach vacation
We are two families – four adults and five children – who stayed in this lovely, comfortable, well-equipped home for the first week in July. This house is located just two houses down from the boardwalk to the beach, and there's a lovely view of the water through the pines from the living room. There are plenty of puzzles and games for rainy day entertainment (though we lucked out and had fabulous weather every day). Would absolutely return for another visit. Thanks for a great time!
Great vacation spot
Loved the house and the island!
Great place to relax
Very nice clean house. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, seeing and listening to the ocean. Short 3 minute walk to beach, which was not busy, even on the weekend. Pool was refreshing and convenient. Kitchen was well stocked and beds/bedrooms were comfortable.
Perfect family get away
Beautiful home and perfect location. Loved listening to the waves crashing from the porch. Just a short walk to the beach. Pool was mostly shaded, perfect for the kids to continue playing in the water without getting sunburned. Listing stated we were responsible for extra paper goods but we found the house to be sufficiently stocked for our stay.
Great location and excellent communication from owners
We stayed here at the end of March in 2019 for spring break. There were 4 kids and 5 adults. The house was very accommodating and had everything you needed. Make sure to bring your own beach towels and a couple of extra dish towels. The location can not be beat it is literally across the street from the beach - with views from the top deck. The owner was very communicative when we had questions or there were issues. He even checked in on our first day to make sure we had every thing we needed. We will definitely be back!!!!!! Thank you Doug!!!
Erin, Thanks for staying with us and for the kind review. We are glad you had a great time and look forward to you staying with us again!
Wonderful house for family vacation
Beautiful and private house close to beach for sun, and cut for fishing. Has it’s own private pool. Second time we have stayed here and will be back again. Doug, the owner does a great job staying in touch before, during and after your visit.
Short drive into town for groceries, restaurants. Oysters are outstanding, followed by peel and eat shrimp and Ahi Tuna. Easy going barrier island town with very friendly locales that will make your stay even more enjoyable.
Thanks so much for your nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed and look forward to you all coming back.
