***See link to owner's web page below for many more pictures and more information on the house and area.***



Each bedroom is a master suite featuring a private bathroom and a majestic view of the bay and marshes (paradise for bird watchers). Glass doors slide open from each room onto a wrap-around deck with a screened-in porch. There are two separate living areas, a well-equipped kitchen, ceramic tile, and a beautifully landscaped PRIVATE SCREENED POOL overlooking the marshes. Three blocks away (on quiet roads or trails) to the beach, dunes, and tennis courts.

This beautiful bay view house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac road in the Plantation, a famous, gated community that has preserved the natural beauty of the barrier island. The Plantation has extensive bike trails, a community pool, 3 different tennis courts, and a rock jetty (The Cut) famous for excellent fishing. After a day of outdoor activities, the private screened pool overlooking the marshes will entice you to relax and enjoy the great view and the local bird community. The house also has an enclosed outdoor shower and a fish cleaning sink.

This house has two separate living room areas, each with a flat-panel cable TV, that can easily accommodate two families. The wrap-around deck and the screened porch provide an unobstructed view. Two large decks facing the bay are furnished with Adirondack chairs and a hammock, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the great view of the bay and marshes. Beds include one king, one queen, and one bunk bed consisting of a lower-queen and single-upper.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: We are a busy family that love our time away on vacation. We have three children that keep our schedules full and it is almost a necessity to get away and enjoy our time together.

Why Plantation, St. George Island, FL, USA:
We visited St. George Island in 2007 with our family. We all had a great time fishing, biking, and exploring the island. Our kids have always loved the water and being at the ocean. From the first time we saw A Bay to Remember, we knew it would be a great home away from home to raise a family and build a lot of memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you like elbow room and privacy, you will love 'A Bay to Remember.' ABTR is on a one-acre lot with all adjacent lots currently undeveloped. ABTR has 100% tile floors, which are vastly superior to carpet with an island climate and pet rentals. Pictures do not do justice to the views toward Apalachicola Bay. We often find ourselves just looking out the windows. .
