Car: Necessary

From Tallahassee Take US 319 South to US 98 to East Point turn left on St George Island Causway to dead end on island. Turn right on West Gulf Beach Drive to 8th street. 816 is third house on the left. Enjoy the 5th ranked beach in the US and the quaint fishing villages of Apalachicola and Carrabelle FL. at the mouth of beautiful Apalachicola and Carrabelle Rivers. Pristine open beaches for 13 miles of State Park. Walk the beach with no sign of civilization. Lush saltwater estuaries fed by freshwater rivers. 75 miles of State Forest surrounds mouth of Apalachicola River. New estuary museum is a must to see to enjoy the culture of the island and the nature of the estuary. Crystal clear Port St. Joe Bay full of fish and scallops in the summer. Adjoined by uninhabited St. Vincent island on the west and nearly uninhabited Dog Island to the East. Rated the fifth best beaches in the US. Great local seafood resturants, quaint villages, outstanding gourmet restaurants, the Apalachicola Bay produces 98% of all the oysters harvested in Florida. All seafood is fresh and delicious. Named the forgotten coast, no high rises, less commercialization than Florida beaches near larger cities. A true diamond in the rough. Breath taking sunrises and sunsets. Few lights so stars above the Gulf sea are 100 fold more than you would imagine. Walk the beach at night with the sound of the surf and the magnificent show of the stars. Gentle breezes cool the beach most of the year. Just enough activities to keep the children happy while the family enjoys the true splendor and enjoyment of the beach. Obviously we are in love with the island and the surrounding area, you will be too.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: We have had our home on the island since 1972 when I was a coach and administrator at Florida State University. Our children were raised on the island (we spend most weekends here) and they still call it home. We completely remodeled and enlarged the property in the early 2002. It is virtually a new home. In the last two years I have replaced the air conditioned and heat pump, the dish washer, the clothes dryer and the refrigerator, painted the interior and the outside decks, installed new carpeting throughout the carpeted areas and added new larger flat TV's to the great room and the master bedroom. The home is again like a new home. We currently live in Statesboro, GA where I have retired as Associate Professor of Sport Law and Athletics Director at Georgia Southern University. I have also retired from my own athletics consulting business am a licensed real estate broker. My wife has retired from being a manager at an electrical coop. We have four children, all married, all college graduates, and all able to pay their own house payments.....We are in love with the island and hope to spend much more time here in our retired years. I am an avid fisherman and can tell you where to fish and when to fish and my wife knows every restaurant and every shop in the area. Please feel free to ask out advice about anything pertaining to your vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches, Eastpoint, FL, USA:
This property is a stand alone home on pilings located on a half acre lot. We have a view of the gulf and we are a short walk (150 yards approx) from the waters edge. It is super clean and well maintained. Very comfortable for four but can be used for six with my permission and after discussing with you your needs. We are located less than a mile from the middle of the island and the stores and restaurants. We are located on the walking path that circles the central part of the island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As a stand alone property, it is peaceful, quiet, and has all the amenities to make you vacation a success. Including WiFi. The island and the surrounding area is very special,quaint, bountiful, with the most beautiful beaches with the most splender than nature can provide.
