About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Serenity Now' was beautifully custom built in early 2001 for the owners who had vacationed on St. George Island for several years. It is located in the East Gulf Beaches area convenient to everything on the island. The emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beaches provide a tranquil get-away from hectic city life.

There are so many different ways you and your family and friends can find ''Serenity Now'' at this inspired beach access home. This is an ideal choice for girlfriends seeking a private retreat to get away or a couple of families looking for both a charming and affordable Island escape.

While the list of delightful amenities is abundant, the loveliest feature is the two levels of covered decks available to enjoy the Gulf breeze. Generously furnished with comfortable wicker furniture, you can spend your mornings appreciating a hot cup of java, the afternoon taking it easy with a good book from the book library and your evenings sipping your favorite drink.

The open living/dining/kitchen area and a half bath are located on the top level. The furnishings are cozy with plenty of seating around the large flat screen TV with DVD and VCR players. The layout of the kitchen is ideal for multiple cooks to create memorable fresh seafood dinners. The kitchen offers Silestone counters, a flattop stove and open access to the dining area.

All three bedrooms are located on the first level. A king master suite has direct deck access. The spacious queen bedroom and a bunk room share the hall bath. Flat screen TVs are provided in each room.

A large, outdoor dining table is located on the pool deck, just next to the outdoor grill so everyone can enjoy the cook-out. Your stay will be made complete by the DVD, game and puzzle library provided for indoor entertainment.

Conveniently located just across the street from the Island bicycle path and one pet under 60 lbs is welcome.

Bed Sizes: 1 king, 1 queen, 1 bunk bed (2 fulls), 1 daybed with trundle (2 twins)

Outdoors: Under-house Concrete Parking; Covered Entry; Pool: 12x28 (Heated for a fee); Enclosed Outdoor Shower; Fish Cleaning Area; Park-style Grill

Location

Car: Necessary

This Non-Smoking, two-story, beach house is constructed on concrete pilings which set the living area high with great views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can relax on two eight-foot by thirty-foot porches on wicker chairs and sofas and enjoy great views of the Gulf of Mexico and sunsets or take a relaxing dip in the private pool (heated in cooler weather). There is easy access to the beach which is about one block away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I've been vacationing on the island for years, prior to having Serenity Now custom built for us in 2001. We continue to love our beach get-a-ways at Serenity Now when visiting throughout the year from our home in the Atlanta area. We'd love for you to also find serenity at Serenity Now on an upcoming island vacation!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The private pool is surrounded by a lush grove of native sand oaks and situated directly in front of 2 large balconies. Our kitchen, dining, living room, and master bedroom are all located on the 3rd floor in order to maximize gorgeous island and Gulf views. Hot/cold outdoor shower, fish sink & table, charcoal grill, and under house parking for two cars are a few of the exterior benefits.
