About Terri Kohler

I grew up in a small beach community on the East coast. When I first visited St. George Island, it felt like home. I love the feel of this sleepy little beach community, and I would like to share the beauty of this unique little island.

Terri Kohler purchased this house in 2017

Why Terri Kohler chose Gulf Beaches

The Sandbox is the coziest beach cottage you can imagine. It's bright and sunny and just steps from the beach. This little house has everything you need, plus a fenced in yard for your dog.

Wonderful cozy vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Sandbox was perfect! It was very clean and comfortable, and VERY close to the beach! The fenced in yard was very convenient for my pup, and the back deck had a nice breeze in the evening with a view of the ocean. Last but not least, the kitchen had everything we needed, to cook the fresh fish we bought in town.

Comfortable, quiet and clean — a perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sandbox for six weeks in Nov-Dec and found it to be a perfect place to stay. The area was quiet while we were there (except for the week of Thanksgiving when it got relatively busy). The open layout and large kitchen make the home feel quite spacious. We were two, but it seems you easily could have four people stay comfortably — one caveat, there is only table seating for two inside. The walk to the beach was easy and we pretty much had it to ourselves! We work virtually and for the most part, the internet was fine — we did lose it 3 times during our stay; twice for a few hours but once for a few days. Finally, Terri was great at communicating and very responsive to all our questions. Highly recommend The Sandbox for a clean, comfortable, and affordable place to stay.

Sept 23 - 30, 2017 Stay at the Sandbox

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home for the 2 of us and our dog. It was very clean, and the kitchen was well supplied with newer appliances and all the utensils, etc that we needed. It was much hotter this week than we expected at this time of year, so we didn't get to walk as much as we wanted, but the bike/walking path was right in front of the cottage if we had wanted to. We tried out a lot of the local restaurants on SGI, and in Eastpoint and Appalachicola. They all had good food. One night I tried a low country boil at home with Jumbo shrimp from Dail's seafood truck - delicious! The Sandbox is perfect for a couple or two.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robin! I hope you will stay at the Sandbox again. The weather on St. George Island in the winter time is great for walking/biking. Terri
