About Jim Whitlatch
My wife and I purchased this property the spring of 2012 and since that time we have been working hard to bring it up to our high standards and to make it a special place for our family, friends, and renters. We have added many special touches to make it a place for our family to enjoy! We are from Bloomington, Indiana and we have three children ages 22, 27, and 29. We plan to rent this property when we are not using it, but we plan to use it as often as we can get to St. George Island.
Jim Whitlatch purchased this House in 2012
Why Jim Whitlatch chose Plantation
St. George Island is exactly what we have been looking for in a Florida home. We wanted a private, natural, unspoiled area without high rises or crowds. The Forgotten Coast and the Plantation on St. George Island meet our requirements perfectly.
What makes this House unique
Our home is two short blocks (easy walking distance) from the community pool, work-out room, and tennis courts. This home is near Sikes Cut for those interested in fishing. The home is in a very private and natural setting with more than 12 palm trees and numerous sand oaks.

Stardust Villa - Phenomenal Property
This property is one of the nicest beach properties we've stayed at on the Gulf Coast, both in terms of the hospitality, cleanliness, and the house itself. Amazing property. I would highly recommend it. The owners have a true gift for providing hospitality to their guests.
Wonderful place to stay
This house fit our family perfectly, from the pool to the proximity to the beach everything was great.
Fantastic home, owner and island! Highly recommend!!
Our family had never visited St. George Island before. It is wonderful if you are looking for a quiet beach town. There are not any high rise condos or chain restaurants on the island. Check-in was a breeze. The home is located in a large private community. It's probably a 10 minute drive from the center of the island, which is an enjoyable, slow drive. This particular house is located in pretty dense vegetation so you do have a good bit of privacy both at the house and the pool. The ground level is all outdoor space that is fully stocked with beach and pool equipment as well as an awesome outdoor shower. The pool is in a separate fence with a closable gate which was extremely nice since we had small children. Inside there was everything you need and then some. It was very nice to have a week's supply of soaps and paper products available. The pictures do not do the house justice which makes for a nice surprise when you arrive. The beach is located just one block over, but you do have to walk down a few houses to the boardwalk. It's not a big deal, less than a 5 minute walk from your first step out of the house to being where you want to set up on the beach. The beach itself is spacious and uncrowded. We ate most of our meals in but we did get out a few times. We got donuts one morning - they are delicious cake donuts but the wait is long and they do sell out. Our favorite dinner stop was Paddy's Raw Bar. We also went bay fishing with Captain Ken Anderson which was reasonably priced and an enjoyable trip. We were a bit worried about the quality of the grocery stores on SGI. The Piggly Wiggly is a corner store in what seems to be an old, run down gas station, but they have a great produce and butcher section as well as high quality foods and a pretty good beer selection. We were pleasantly surprised. St. George Island and this home exceeded all of our expectations. I highly recommend booking your visit now!!
Very nice house, very quiet, very clean and a great home to gather with friends and family for a relaxing week away.
We had the most wonderful family vacation to St. George Island! Thank you Jim and Ann for being the perfect guest. Your house is just perfect and all your extra added touches were amazing!! We can’t wait to come back!!
We had a great vacation at the Stardust Villa! Everything we needed was at the house. Would definitely recommend!
Our home is in the private, gated community of The Plantation on St. George Island. St. George Island is a beautiful, pristine 22 mile long barrier island with white sandy beaches. Half of the island is Dr. Julian G. Bruce State Park which was voted the best state park in Florida. In 2012, St. George State Park beach was voted one of the 10 best beaches in the United States and was a backdrop for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit photo shoot. Enjoy an outdoor paradise away from high rise hotels and crowds. St George Island offers excellent fishing, restaurants, shelling, water sports, biking, and relaxation. Visit the nearby quaint historic town of Apalachicola. The nearest airports are Tallahassee and Panama City.
