About The Owner

We found St. George Island 16 years ago and bought our beach house May 2010! After years of looking though magazines and dreaming of decorating my own - I finally got to do it and it's FUN!!! Although the major renovating is finished for now, I'm always tweaking and changing - making Pirates better! :) Come and visit Chasing Pirates and the island - both very special places!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose St. George Island

We used to vacation in Destin but a friend told us about SGI and our hearts were captured as soon as we crossed the bridge. I love the uncrowded natural beaches, stars, quietness, dolphins, sea turtles and, of course, the beauty and magic of the island!

What makes this house unique

Chasing Pirates has clean updated furnishings - it looks like a beach house and has an amazing vibe! The Elevator is especially nice for unloading luggage and taking groceries upstairs or if you're exhausted from a hard day at the beach!!! We love the whole house water filtration system with filters that are changed regularly and the very large hot water tank! (Who likes a cold shower at the beach?) The screened-in porch is a fun second dining area. The hammock, porch swing, and Adirondack chairs are nice places to relax outdoors under the covered porch or open sun deck - while enjoying the amazing unobstructed gulf views! You won't be disappointed - come and visit Chasing Pirates!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I've stayed in some lovely homes on St. George Island over the past 14 years, but none have been better than Chasing Pirates. The new owners recently renovated the house and turned it into a home of comfort, warmth, and beauty. The amenities (including the elevator and library) are there for the purpose of making one's stay all the more enjoyable. Both decks are perfect for relaxing. The kitchen is a pure joy and well stocked. The furniture is sturdy and comfortable. (Not all places are.) Most bedrooms allow you to wake up to a magnificent view of the ocean. There's even a great little nook for your computer. The home is so clean and well kept up. I could go on and on! And then there is the view! It's wide open. You may as well be beach front!!! But the real beauty of Chasing Pirates is that the owners so obviously care and have truly made the house a home - not only for themselves but for their guests.

Fabulous & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Chasing Pirates and The Plantation -- one of our best vacations ever! The house is beautiful and the views of ocean stunning. The Plantation is just magical and lush -- we especially loved riding bikes everywhere, kayaking in the surf, dining under the twinkle lights of the screened porch, watching the dolphins, and eating oysters ever day! The house was extremely clean, and Tawana the owner was so helpful during vacation planning. We highly recommend Chasing Pirates. The location is perfect, you will love it.

Loved Chasing Pirates!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was delighted with Chasing Pirates! We loved the screened in porch with a beautiful view. We gathered there in the mornings and ate meals there. The beaches are great and the dolphins put on a show for us every day! Fishing from the beach is fun and sometimes rewards us with supper! We had two fish fries from the fish my husband caught! Bicycling is a daily family fun activity. The lovely furnishings and decorating added to our pleasant stay. The elevator was a great plus! Island life is so relaxing and the Plantation is a lovely place to do just that. Don't forget to visit the "old Florida" town of Apalachicola. It is full of ambience and surprises. Lots of interesting local shops to visit. We like The Green Door to the left as you enter the town from the river bridge. All in all, one week is not enough! Wish it were longer........

Chasing Pirates - Very Comfy Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family trip to St George Island. In years past we have stayed at other beaches. SGI is at least my top favorite. Plenty of beach space and you definitely don't have to go anywhere if you bring all meals. My inlaws rented the house and the pictures don't do it justice. It is so comfortable on the inside and out. Very home like in all spaces. Close to the beach access. Only suggestion would be to put darkening curtains behind white in kids bedroom since they don't have coverage of deck and rugs in bathrooms that could be washed for some comfort. Loved the furnishes and hardware throughout. Elevator was great for bringing everything in!! Owner amazing and made sure everything was ok!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! The Black-out curtains in the bunk room make great sense. You can tell I don't have little ones anymore that get up at the crack of dawn! Thanks for visiting!

This home was perfect for our family vacation. There were eight adults and a baby. We loved having the elevator to send up our groceries or luggage. It is a beautiful well kept home.

St. George Plantation - Chasing Pirates

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for springbreak in April. The house was clean, extremely "comfortable", big enough but not too big, covenient location midway into plantation. We had 5 adults and 1 child and everyone was satisfied. I loved the interior. It was very tastefully decorated and made you feel relaxed and peaceful. There were a lot of special touches and updates but above all - clean.

Would love to be there still!

We stayed in Chasing Pirates for a month recently. This home is the best I've stayed in on St George. It has a home like atmosphere that is unusual in a rental. The furniture was extremely comfortable and interior decor is beautiful. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and the bedrooms were comfortable and storage was great. Short walk to the beach and the beach view from the house is totally unobstructed. We saw many beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the comfortable porches. I honestly can't say enough nice things about this home. You can certainly feel the pride that the owner has put into this beach house.
