About the property

Best Location in Resort Village

Welcome to our beautiful home, C R Beach, on SGI! Upon entering the Gated Plantation area of SGI, our home is approximately 1 mile past the gate, located on a private culdesac. You can park underneath the house where there is an outside shower, fish cleaning area and beach chairs. Entering the house on the first floor, you'll find the laundry room and the elevator.

One flight of stairs takes you to the kitchen, dining area, and a full bathroom. The kitchen has granite counter tops and all the amenities of home along with a 4 person table (great for playing cards, refueling for the beach, or just enjoying food and company!) The dining room has a large table that comfortably seats 8 people. Also, the entire house is on a water softener / filtration system.

From the dining room you go down a small flight of stairs to the living area with a large comfortable den area with a large TV, blu-ray player, leather couches and a leather recliner. There is also a reading area and a place for kids to play games on this level too. From the living area, there is access to a large screened porch with another table and chairs. The enormous pool with a 50 meter lap lane is conveniently located outside the back porch.

As of September 2016, our community is part of the larger Plantation and the pool is one of 2 community pools. We also have access to the tennis courts and exercise room.

All 4 bedrooms are on the top floor. 2 bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and 2 bedrooms share a bathroom between them in the hall. There are 3 king beds and 2 full beds. The master bedroom has a 32” TV, a fantastic view of the pool, a screened in porch and a huge walk in shower with a double vanity. The other 2 bedrooms with king beds have a view of the ocean. The 4th bedroom has 2 full beds and also opens up to the screened in porch overlooking the pool.

We are the only house in the Resort Village that is rented directly by the private owner. If you want better beds and a better stocked kitchen, try us out!

Wherever you stay, we hope you enjoy a peaceful trip relaxing in the beauty and tranquility of SGI!

About Wendy

We love the beach and wanted a place that was quiet and family oriented. SGI was the PERFECT place! You can bike the island, kayak, fish, or rent a boat to explore the uninhabited neighboring islands. The quiet family beach is full of beautiful shells and the perfect place to play or just relax and enjoy!

Wendy purchased this house in 2012

Why Wendy chose St. George Island

We wanted a house in the Plantation that was close to the beach and close to the pool. The beach is less than 500 feet away and the enormous pool is in your back yard! Whatever you can't find on the Island, you are sure to find in Apalachicola - which is not far (15 min) and has great shops and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The community is now part of the Plantation community as a whole. As of the summer 2017, the pool is one of 2 community pools. We have access to the fitness facility, tennis courts and a wonderful pool. The beach is only a 3 minute stroll down a nice brick path to one of 8 different boardwalks that take you across the sand dunes onto the beach.

The Very Best!

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly the very best of both worlds -- vacation + like being at home! We have never experienced a rental that is so well maintained, clean and well stocked. The beds were excellent quality with comfortable, memory foam mattresses and very nice linens -- unlike any other rental we have experienced on the island. The cookware is very good quality with no blackened pans with burned on food. Flatware is heavy and good quality and there are plenty glasses and dishes.

Without going on and on, I must say I can't imagine anyone would be disappointed with this house.

The only negative is the distance to the beach, which is a bit of a hike. But, the beach is rather secluded since there are no actual beach front homes there and it's worth the effort. And, the huge, beautiful, well-maintained pool is a huge plus.

Thank you Wendy and Will for doing such a great job!!

Absolutely the best VRBO Home yet!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy we came across CR Beach on VRBO. From the time we started planning our trip to the time we were leaving, Wendy was wonderful to work with and so accommodating! This is the best home we've rented in the 10 years renting homes through VRBO. The home was perfect for our two families with 6 adults and 4 kids. It was very clean and the kitchen had so many extras along with all the cookware, serving dishes, utensils, bowls, etc. that you could need! Just bring your food!

The layout of the home is ideal and the decor has been well thought out! The playroom/den is large enough that the kids can be on one side and the grown ups on the other. We actually put a TV in the area on the other side so the kids could play their video games and the adults could watch the olympics on the larger TV. At night, we had plenty of room in the dining area to play games together and were up way too late. The pool was awesome along with quite a few pool toys that were there and the ones we ended up leaving! Many times, we were the only ones in the pool! Even a few days when it rained, it didn't stop us from going to the pool and the beach too! We found so many shells, especially on the calmer days.

We ate in most every night except for two. We brought in pizza from BJ's on the Island and it's okay...The other night, we went over the Apalachicola and ate at "The Grill". A couple in our family ended up eating at Owl Cafe there and really liked it.

My husband and I chatted each morning before sunrise with the turtle watch volunteers who were assigned to that part of the beach and they would fill us in on the turtle nests that were getting ready to hatch. One did hatch two nights before we left and they showed us the trail the babies made on their journey to the ocean. They also shared with us that there were 412 turtle nests this year on the 12 mile stretch. Even they think it's a special place!

This home is definitely the best kept secret on St. George Island. We'll definitely be back again and have already told many of our friends about it! Thank you Wendy and Will for sharing your amazing home with our family! Kevin and Angela (Asheville, NC)

Awesome Beach House on St. George Island!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at CR Beach on St. George Island! The house was perfect for our family of five, plenty of room to spread out and be super comfortable in all aspects. The house is probably the nicest we've stayed in...from the open layout to the very well stocked kitchen to having plenty of toys and games for the kids, it had everything we could have possibly needed. The shared pool was also great, never crowded, but some other families around which gave our girls an opportunity to make new friends while we were on vacation. The walk to the beach was also easy, not far and paved the entire way, which is really nice when rolling a cart or wagon full of beach items. Wendy, the owner, was fantastic to deal with along the way and even after our stay. The next time we return to SGI, we will be staying at this home again without a doubt, it's truly a special place!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a well stocked, very clean, beautiful home. I can't say enough good things about it. We had a great time! Two families travelled together with children ages 8-14. There is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space, but also provides plenty of spaces to spend time together playing games or just hanging out. The pool is steps away and the walk to the beach is less than 5 minutes. The pool is large and was never crowded. The beach was also never crowded, we saw dolphins everyday. The owner is great to work with, every question was answered quickly. Overall, this is a fabulous home, on a fabulous island. We hope to return!

We will return!!

  • 5 of 5

After staying in many houses on the island over the years, we have a new favorite. The house is well equipped for all of your needs and was comfortable for our family of 7 plus grandma and grandpa. The kitchen was very well stocked and had everything we would ever need for our meal preparations. The mattresses were incredibly comfortable, and we were very thankful for all of the items for young children. We enjoyed a wonderful week and barely left the house other than to visit the beach and pool(which is the best on the island!). Our family is already planning our next trip to SGI and hope to rent this home again!
