Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Blue Moon is located on an end street on the bay side of St. George Island. Seclusion at its best! Put your feet up in the cushy lounge chairs and relax with a cold drink and the view from the 500 sq ft front porch overlooking the Apalachicola Bay. You'll be entertained by an abundance of sea birds and periodic jumping fish. Watch the oystermen harvest oysters from hotel bar in the morning and watch the uninformed pleasure boater run aground on hotel bar in the afternoon.

The view from the back deck is often that of a coastal aviary, showing the protected canal with floating dock. Pelicans, King Fishers, Skimmers, Seagulls and Great Blue Heron enjoy the canal as a great lunch spot. Keep your boat in the water and ready to go on the early morning fishing expedition or on a sunset cruise on a whim.

And, there's always a breeze under the house if you prefer to enjoy Blue Moon's outdoor hot and cold shower, downstairs lounging area equipped with table and chairs and hammock, park grill and dog pen.

The entire St. George Island and Apalachicola area is attuned to island time relaxation. Walk to the beach, bike ride on the bay roads, kayak the bayside canals, visit the St. George Island State Park, enjoy fresh seafood at one of many good restaurants or home cooked in Blue Moon's graciously equipped kitchen. If you feel like an outing, cross the bridge to Apalach for shopping and art.

As advertized, NICE!

Protected canal with dock for the boat out back, fish cleaning station and an ice maker that will fill your fishing cooler, what's not to like! Oh, and the fishing is great right out front in the bay, sea trout galore. Also its a great place to bike, walk on the beach and just plain relax, highly recommended!

Good location. Beautiful views of bay.

  • 5 of 5

House is just the right size for us. We enjoy eating breakfast on front porch overlooking the bay. The dock at back of the house is great for setting crab cage.The end of Buck Street is one of the best places on island to watch the sun set.

We have stayed here 4 times. It is a quiet area but close to beach and restaurants.

I like watching the dolphins swim in the bay.

The perfect getaway for an active family

  • 5 of 5

While I thought I would prefer a beach side house this bayside house offered so much more than the typical gulf side spots. Located on a canal we had a dock for kayaking, crabbing and fishing at our own house. We could watch the boys fishing while we prepared dinner. We had more fishing just across the street in the bay. The bayside properties also afforded so much more privacy and the road was travelled only by residents and renters. Beach access was a short bike ride away. The owner thoughtfully provides two bikes. We brought five more bikes. We felt completely at ease leaving out overnight all the bikes and expensive fishing gear in the sheltered car port. No one bothers your things on the island.

The home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The AC is amazing, hot water for showering is great and plentiful. The kitchen is well stocked and the washer/dryer are superb. We had ample room to park 4-5 vehicles as family came and went during the week. The front deck has two large dining tables to seat at least 10-12 comfortably.

We especially loved the views of the bay on the front covered porch. Watching the afternoon storms roll in was incredible. There is a back sun porch overlooking the canal.

In all it is a wonderful place to gather the family. Thank you Jan!
