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 Plantation

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.

Perfect home for an island adventure

  • 5 of 5

This is the most comfortable vacation home we have stayed in, by far. The views from the top floor are stunning. It has everything you might need for an extended stay, and has a wonderful beach-house feel. Despite being well-decorated, you feel perfectly comfortable staying here with kids (and they even have the nicest children's play area in the downstairs family-room!). The home is extremely clean, the beds are comfy, the showers are large, and the kitchen is well-stocked with dishes/pans/etc.

We really enjoyed cooling off at the pool a couple of times during our visit (it's located just behind the home), but the walk to the beach is one of our favorite parts. It feels like you are in the middle of a quiet, natural island setting, and the beach is uncrowded, with lots of shells and sea-life - you'll see dolphins every day! There are beautiful birds, shy crabs, playful dolphins, and we even saw a manatee swimming along the sandbar. In-between beach visits, we enjoyed exploring the rest of the Island, including the hike around Nick's Hole and a walk out to the Bob Sike's cut. This is a great location for bringing or renting bikes, as the bike paths are amazing and will take you to lots of places for exploring. The Apalachicola Estuarine Research Reserve center is a great way to add an educational adventure into your stay, and is just over the bridge in Eastpoint.

The spacious kitchen has everything you need to cook at home, so we didn't need to venture out for meals - But we did make a couple of trips to the donut shop (they are really good! but they draw a crowd, so get there early). We definitely recommend picking up groceries on your way, if possible, as the grocery stores on the island can be a little expensive for more that just picking up a thing or two.

Beautiful home in a great location!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at CR Beach. The home is tastefully furnished to allow visitors to relax and feel at home for the week. Have the pool literally in the back yard was great and the beach access was an easy and short walk. Would stay in this home again - also Wendy was a pleasure to work with!

What a wonderful week we had at C R Beach!!! The house is beautiful, super clean, very comfortable, and has everything you need and more to make your stay fabulous!! The pool was awesome and just steps from the door, and the beach is an easy, short walk away! My family and I have been coming down to SGI for many years and this house is by far one of the best we've rented!! Wendy was an absolute pleasure to work with, very quick to respond via email and text! We will definitely be back and would recommend this great house to anyone!!! Thanks for a marvelous stay!!!

Our entire family from 54 years old to 11 months old loved the house !!! It had everything and more than you could ask for in a vacation beach house. Wendy was wonderful to work with. The house was well equipped with toys for the kids , games for the adults , and a well equipped kitchen. the beds were super comfortable and roomy. The beach is just a short walk away , and the pool is in the backyard. One thing we loved is the beach was not crowded at all. This gave the grandchildren some running space , which was great for us. We will look at staying here again !!!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect, very clean and furnished so nicely. We loved the proximity to the pool (never crowded) and the brick walkway right to the beach! Since we flew in from Ohio we didn't have any beach items with us....home owners had everything plus more there to, chairs, wagon, floats etc. Beds were very comfortable! Enjoyed using the bikes to tour the Plantation. Wendy was very helpful on where to eat out! Would stay here again!!!
