About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms , 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Luxury by the sea is all yours when you stay at Sea U Later. Built in 2006 it has an open floor plan and breathtaking views of the bay. Watch the dolphins swim while you enjoy your morning coffee.Swim in the bay from the semi-private beach for a fun day in the sun without the worry of high waves or undertow.

Sea-U-Later is just 50 yards from the water. The bay is calm for small children or those who do not want to navigate the high waves of the ocean. The beach is pet friendly with plenty of drift wood to toss for your four legged friends.

This home is centrally located on the island making hiking and biking to restaurants and shops a breeze.

Only 5 blocks from public Gulf beach access,the new Light house and the playground.

About Dana McKinney

My family has been vacationing on St. George Island since 1967. We would get invited to go to the island by friend's and I thought it was boring because there was nothing to do but pick up shells,fish,swim and walk on the beach! I grew up and went away to college but my family would meet in Tallahassee and all go to the island each year. I got married (on the island) and moved to the West coast in 1983 but traveled every year to meet my extended family on the island. Three of our children are grown but all four love the island and know how much it means to me and our family.

My husband and I semi-retired in 2005 and began building our dream house. I had the privilege of designing it so it is extra special to me.

Dana McKinney purchased this house in 2006

Why Dana McKinney chose St. George Island

As an adult, I had always dreamed about having a place on the island. When we found the lot;we fell in love instantly! We drove over to the mainland the same day to make a bid on it.

What makes this house unique

Our house is family friendly with something for everyone to enjoy. The stairs are on a 3 inch rise for persons who have difficulty climbing stairs. Open concept with two separate master suites. The front porch is 16x72 and has an unobstructed view of the bay. At night,the lights from the SGI Bridge are fantastic! Our house is kid friendly with games,puzzles,XBOX and high chair.

Our family stayed at Sea-U-Later for a little under a week and we would definitely stay there again if the opportunity arose. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay on St. George Island, good location, great breeze coming off the bay, nice views. Thank you for the experience.

Being our second stay at Sea U Later, our family had a blast relaxing in the house and out on the front porch with the great view of the bayside. We kept our bellies full and a smile on our face as we adventured out on the island for the week of the 4th, with a comfortable place to rest once we came in at the end of the day. We look forward to coming back next year.

Our Stay June 12 - 18, 2016 at Sea U Later, St. Georgia Island

  • 4 of 5

The Property is perfect for view of the bay. We brought out golf cart and also rented bikes so we really enjoyed the back roads and views of the bay side and the dwellings. The home had very beautiful décor in the living area (central area). The Master Bedroom was fabulous. Was a little disappointed with the condition of the cookware (serving and dining ware was fine). Just heads up - a new cookware set is in order (maybe too many dishwasher runs). We brought our own fry pan and tried to use it for most cooking. I would say that the layout is great for families wanting to share time together! The selection of movies was impressive, we thoroughly enjoyed. The tub in the front guest bedroom to right when you enter had a drainage issue. It would hold water for some time to drain, it eventually did drain. I would definitely stay there again.

Great space, great views

  • 4 of 5

We were there for a great week after the Memorial Day weekend. An A/C unit konked out, and the owner Dana arranged for some A/C guys to install 2 brand new units right away! Very awesome, especially since it's summer in Florida.

I really like how the house is all one level, which avoided all the tramping up and down stairs so often, and it also resulted in a larger porch for sitting and watching sunsets, plus a really large covered car port area for cars, cars of guests, grilling, and porch swinging!

We were directly across from the bay, and it was very easy to take a quick drive to the beach side. Mostly, we stayed on the porch and relaxed, and sat around at the bay!

Great house, lots of space

  • 4 of 5

Love the porch and the location is perfect for watching the sunset. House was spacious and clean. Had a few uncomfortable days due to the A/C needing service.

Beautiful home, fantastic view, very clean

  • 5 of 5

We had the perfect vacation at 'Sea U Later', the house was very comfortable and beautifully decorated in a very quiet part of the island. The view of the Bay was spectacular, we saw dolphins each day. My husband was able to pick up his rod and stroll over to the semi private beach to fish whenever he felt like it! Our previous rentals at SGI have always been closer to the beach, I thought we'd miss that, but we DIDN'T, as this house is so close to the water.

Car: not necessary

There is a bald Eagle nest 1/4 mile from our house and you can see the Eagle fly to his nest from our front porch. The beaches have the brightest white sand and there is hardly any other people close by even during the summer season. Bike riding is a favorite activity because there is a bike path that goes around half the island. No car necessary if you have or rent a golf cart.
