About George Floyd

Apalachicola native went into the military at age 18, then a career in the corporate world, now retired to the good life on the island. I live on St. George Island and run the Maritime Museum in Apalachicola.

George Floyd purchased this house in 2011

Why George Floyd chose Plantation

This is the most fabulous homes on St. George Island with an unobstructed grand panorama of the Gulf. I love the tranquil beauty of St. George Island and this home is among the most elegant in which to enjoy a vacation visit.

What makes this house unique

The exquisite detail with which this home was finished is a beauty to behold. Add to that the extensive furnishings and art work that create a warmth and feeling of luxury in a private estate home.

Beautiful and comfortable retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for our family get together at the beach. Would also recommend for other adult groups. The home is beautifully appointed with upscale amenities that made it have more of the comforts of home than just the usual beach rental. Large new gas grill was perfect for family dinners. Location super close to the beach so easy to go back and forth to the beach. Note, however, that during turtle nesting season, which our visit was, the fire pit cannot be used at night and the rooms facing the beach must be kept at low light. This was not an issue for my family. The owner was very nice and responsive when we had any questions. Easy access also to the club house and community pool.

St. George Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family went to visit St. George Island after a wedding this summer. The Ulitmate mansion that we rented came with everything we could think of and more. This house has the beautiful views of the beach and gulf. The house came with beach chairs, tents, kayaks, and bikes. The owner came to visit us and make sure we had everything we needed. Our family plans to visit this house on the island again. It fulfilled all of our needs and desires for our vacation.
