About Deborah and Isaac Lang
In 1994 we bought our first St George island beach house ... As the children grew, we spent school breaks and every chance we had to be on St. George Island ... We found a jewel of an island where we could explore the great out doors. A place where we could bring our children and dogs without the pressures and noise of over populated beaches or strict regulations. I was raised in Florida and prefer St George Island over all the other Florida beaches. Not too big and not too small. Just right. As our family grew more than three times in size, we knew we needed a lot more room. As good timing would have it we found and bought An Angel's Dream. The private pool at An Angel's Dream is where many of our grandchildren have learned to swim. We especially enjoy the heated pool during the Spring and Fall when days are warm but the nights are crisp. When we want to be on the water, we kayak, swim or spend the Day on our sail boat. You can rent all sorts of water craft at Journeys and other places. They also have guided sailing and fishing trips and much more) At night we often take turns cooking, watch a family movie, swim, play board games or work on a puzzle. We like to sit outside on the top deck or walk the beach and watch for turtles coming out to lay their eggs. August and September have the most amazing and plentiful shooting star sightings! We enjoy riding our bikes nearly every day. We recently added 3 more miles of bike paths in the Plantation and more to come. I have no idea the total miles of bike paths on the Island but you can ride all the way to the East end into the St George Island State Park.... Visit the Lighthouse and Keepers House & Museum ( closed on Thursdays) but any other day its worth the climb! If you are lucky enough buy the Full Moon tickets Limited visitors. We hope you enjoy staying at our home and the Island as much as we do and please return to visit An Angel's Dream again and agai
Deborah and Isaac Lang purchased this House in 2003
Why Deborah and Isaac Lang chose Plantation
We love this open house and It's private location to the beach. There is no one in your space... And it's a plus to be situated on the short beach path. No streets to cross...and No way to get lost. We provide a complimentary beach/fishing cart and chairs that easily carries everything needed for the short walk to the beach.... After a day at the beach, the swimming pool and comfort of the house is there waiting with open arms. There's lots of room to nap on many a couch & lounge chairs or glide into the sweet water of the pool. Remember our Winters are short and the Spring and Fall are long. Warm days and coll nights. Its the perfect time to have the swimming pool heated. ($350 per week) We loved the colorful tile and views from the great room and the fact that our family has plenty of room to spread out yet be together... for games, puzzles and a great movie through the large Roku Smart TVs. We often dine or play games in the large screened summer kitchen in the carport. There is a full size refrigerator to unload your groceries, a dorm fridge for easy to grab drinks, tables, chairs, couch and a bar. The Plantation it self is a nature wonderland for those who love to explore the outdoors. The island has no big chain stores but there are 2 groceries in the Island's central area. The SGI Plantation beach is unspoiled, clean and is a quiet family beach... The wild life and fishing is simply amazing. May to November we've had the wonderful experience of witnessing turtles lay their eggs on the beach and hatching. Many incredible encounters with dolphin and other wild life... In Winter & Spring we've seen pods of Stella Dolphins swimming in the "thousands, " as far as my eyes could see"... Late Summer and Fall the amazing site of watching Dolphins play with the cannonball jelly fish (no they don't sting) but they are a wonderful food source, high in protein. SGI is in the migration path of 52 species of birds and many over winter.
What makes this House unique
Very close to the beach but private and is on the dedicated beach path. The covered porch is very large and very comfortably furnished. It's easy to take a nap, read a book or dine outdoors. Our grand kids learned to swim in the pool at An Angel's Dream and its so easy to keep an eye on them from any level of the house. The house and beach is a great place for our grown children and grandchildren to be free of the rigors from school and or work. They bike most everywhere, freely to explore and take photos of the natural beauty of the Island beach, sunrise and sundown. This is the place where we can reconnect with the simple life, explore and be in touch with nature and our family... Build sand castles, swim. connect with nature, star gaze, play board games, puzzles and gather in the kitchen... St George Island Plantation has many miles of bike paths,. From the Cut to nearly the other end of the island... The waters are considered world class salt water fishing... 3 tennis courts, 3 pickleball courts, awesome club house and exercise room . In addition to "our private swimming pool" there are 2 Plantation swimming pools. One at the club house on Magnolia and the other, a lagoon pool and kiddy pool at Park Ave. Map is available both online or at the office on magnolia. There is so much to do you will want to stay longer just to finish that book you brought or catch those fish for dinner. Spend a little time in Historic Apalachicola. A lovely turn of the 19 century town. Good restaurants a micro brewery and lots of shopping... Take some time to walk around, have lunch or a cocktail at the Gibson Inn. Great town to view the turn of the century homes and you can even rent a golf cart. Let us know what you liked about our house, the island and lovely Apalachicola. So kindly remember to review our house... Ya'll come back now, ya hear?
