About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms , 4.5 Baths, 2015 New HW floors in 3 Bedrooms

If you enjoy beautiful views of the beach and living in the dunes then this is a great house for you. The crystal clear water and fine sand beach has made St George one of the top picks by 'Dr Beach'.

Sports Illustrated shot their 2012 Swimsuit Model cover at Apalachicola & St George Island.

State Park on island is consistently voted best in America.

This is a modern 2 story, 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath house built in 2003 with all the amenities including elevator. There are 2 master bedrooms with King size beds, one Queen size bed and 2 kids room both with bunk beds. We sleep a total of 14 (12 in beds and one new pull out couch). There is an Elevator (Deposit required for use)

Enjoy the kayak that comes with the rental and paddle with the dolphins or kick back and enjoy reading a book on the peaceful beach.

If you want to watch some TV, each bedroom and the two living rooms have TV's. The kids love to play Ping Pong on the porch!

About Sissel Thorsen

We are a Norwegian family that moved to Texas in 2001. We love the beach and St George allows us to have some fun family time together. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do and come back in the future.

Sissel Thorsen purchased this house in 2010

Why Sissel Thorsen chose St. George Island

You will enjoy a one acre property with a private walk way to the beach. We really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the ease of walking back and forth to the beach. We always leave a base camp on the beach during the day. Since taking over in 2011 we continue to upgrade the house. We added all new steel appliances, built walkway to beach, installed louvres on the side of the garage, landscaped the property, built new stone patio with fire pit, some new artwork and furniture. Just remodeled kitchen cabinets in 2017!!! We will continue to do so as we see it as our home and are happy that others may enjoy it as well.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to the beautiful sounds on St George and drinking a hot cup of Java while watching the dolphin swim by gives us a joy we can't find many places.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

I loved vacationing at Pelican Watch with my friends. The location was perfect with gorgeous beach view and easy access til the beach. Lovely and clean house with no detail overlooked. The Kitchen was well-stocked and there was more than enough dining space inside and on the porch to enjoy breakfast/dinner. We loved sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs overlooking the beatiful ocean. I will recommend this house to anyone - you will love this place. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Pelican Watch with my Elderly parents, brother, sister n law and 2 small fur babies. I can't say enough about the house. We had plenty of room to allow for our privacy. We loved meeting up in the mornings on the top porch for coffee. There was so much to do. The beach was the best. You have a beautiful home and we so much appreciate you sharing it with us.

Wonderful beach, great family time

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 8 adults and one dog that had a fantastic time! A very beautiful home that has plenty of room and privacy with 5 bedrooms and 4 & 1/2 baths. We are from Tampa and drove over 5 hours (passing lots of beaches) to get here and so glad we did! Very peaceful, private, rustic beach (no speed boats, jet skis, no planes flying over with ad banners, no condos or high rise hotels). The home was beautifully decorated and provided everything we needed other than food. We prepared every meal for 5 days and had plenty of dishes, pots & pans. Ping pong was fun in the evenings. The young adults loved the kayak and even took a bike ride to the light house & museum one afternoon; and We took a short walk to the state park along the beach another afternoon. We all agreed that what we will miss most is having every meal together (breakfast, lunch & dinner) on the porch listening to the waves, the gentle breeze and the wonderful view. Lots to do, but everything felt relaxed and slow...the perfect vacation. Also, you can view the sunrise & sunset from the upper porch!

Sissel, the owner was excellent to work with and provided quick responses to each of my questions/emails.

FYI: bring groceries with you, as the only local market on the island is very expensive with limited choices!

Pelican Watch is a first tier home with a private walkway to the beach. You can roll your kayak, cooler, or beach caddy all the way to the beach.

Just enjoy the beach scene or you can jet ski, paddle board, kite surf, swim, fish, kayak, and sail. Several rental spots on the island for a variety of water sports, the house comes with a tandem sit on top kayak. And when you head back we have and outdoor shower, sink and a great grill area to grill the catch of the day!.

A short 5 minute drive to boat launch or fishing pier in the Apalachicola Bay for bay fishing, shelling or boating.

The whole area is like a nature park, dolphins are spotted on a regular basis swimming by, turtles lay eggs on the beach and Bald Eagles nest in the area.

The area is famous for its oysters but plenty of others fresh seafood coming right out of the gulf and on to your plate! For the best food, I recommend Harry A's, and Up the Creek in Apalachicola they make some fantastic dishes. For a sunset drink, hit the Blue Parrot on the beach and enjoy live music. If you want to get out of the sun and enjoy a great atmosphere also with live music or watch live sports, go to Paddy's!

If you like to play Golf there is an excellent Golf Course about about 20 minutes drive away.

There is a private landing strip on the island which is open to the public but no refueling available. Apalachicola municipal airport is about a 10 minutes drive and refueling and rental car is offered there .
