About Linda ODonnell

I love the beach. Own several beach house and am proud of the renovation of M'Ocean Granted. It is an amazing home.

It's a new day on St. Gorge Island.

Linda ODonnell purchased this house in 2013

Why Linda ODonnell chose St. George Island

This property is on the EAST END. The EAST END is where the beaches are the BEST.

This property is 1 ACRE with 100' on the GULF OF MEXICO!

The closest public access is lots away ( 1/4 mile to the west) :)

There are 7 vacant lots to the east, which further adds to the privacy.

EAST END Beaches are the BEST. The Gulf is in your back yard. You can 'hear it' from every room.

At every moment, you know you're 'ON THE BEACH'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home! We had an amazing time. The kitchen made it very easy to have family meals - so we could enjoy our time as a family. Mom actually admitted that that your kitchen is better equipped than hers. She took an inventory and made us an early Christmas list for shopping at Williams Sonoma. LOL. You have a absolutely beautiful home. M'Ocean Grant FAR EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. Cheers!

House and location were perfect for a relaxing family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed a very relaxing weekend here! As many others have stated, there was plenty of space in the house for multiple guests. We had a smaller group of nine and they were rooms to spare! The kitchen was fully stocked including a full spice cabinet & 2 dishwashers (very handy!). There were more than enough lounge chairs & beach toys.

The location of the house is hard to best. It was very private and quiet. It's a 2 mile walk, drive or bike ride to the town market & a few restaurants.

We definitely plan to return!

The house and beach were both perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! We had 11 adults and 5 children and there was plenty of room for everyone! We love to cook so we made every single meal in a beautiful kitchen that had every single thing we needed. The beds were comfy, the outdoor spaces were plentiful and the views were stunning! We loved the pool and it felt like we had our own private beach! The fact that we didn't have to go out and buy toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, body wash, coffee & so many other amenities that we have had to in the past made things so much easier for our large group. We have rented at least a dozen other rental homes and this was hands down our favorite! Thanks Linda!

A perfect spot for our family of 18 (8 under 8).

  • 5 of 5

Linda O'Donnell has thought of everything. You love this house with 5 (!) king suites that look out on the Gulf and bunks galore for children. I managed easily on crutches and a walker thanks to the elevator and the short, flat boardwalk to the beach. The huge porches were great for spreading out and for star gazing. We plan to return!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything is as described on VRBO. Spacious house with plenty of master bedrooms and bathrooms. Kitchen is fully stocked. Plenty of beach supplies. Lots of different spaces with outdoor chairs on the balconies. We would definitely stay here again. The only tiny negative would be the main floor bunk beds are not very comfortable and no shower in that area. Everything else was wonderful.

Well, it was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 16 rented M’Ocean Granted for a week. What an impressive and well-appointed holiday house. All of the furniture, inside & out, was in good shape and well taken care of and the house itself was very clean. The beach side decks were huge and there was a wonderful wood table that seated 13+ on the main floor deck where we hung out every night. People have written reviews about how well stocked the house is and it’s absolutely true. The 2 dishwashers were a godsend in our eyes. There were also 2 fridges and plenty of cupboard space which held our massive Costco & Publix grocery purchases made after landing at Tallahassee airport. Our bedroom closet had more than enough hangers. There were also plenty of pool towels. Being the end of April, we requested that the pool be heated. A cold front came in during our trip so it was well worth the extra money to have done this. Linda provided me with a floor plan in advance so we could assign bedrooms prior to arrival which helped very much in our trip organization. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their holiday and I would definitely recommend M’Ocean Granted.

St. George Island is a 22- mile barrier island in the panhandle of Florida.It hosts some of Florida’s most beautiful and serene beaches. Voted # 3 Best Beach in the USA in 2015. There are no high rises, just an unspoiled island with a laid-back attitude. It is the quintessential beach vacation island.

Twenty six miles of beach on the gulfside, inlets and oyster bars on the bayside. The uncrowded beaches are perfect for sunning, shelling and walking. The crystal clear blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico invite swimming, fishing, and all water sports.

The St. George Island State Park occupies the far eastern end of St. George Island. There you will find nine miles of undeveloped shoreline, majestic dunes, a bay forest and salt marshes. St. George Island State Park has a series of hiking trails, boardwalks and observation platforms. Birding is a popular activity on St. George Island. You might encounter one of the many migratory birds that use St. George Island as a stopover on their way south or north.

In early summer, loggerhead sea turtles come ashore to dig their nests and lay eggs along the beach.

St. George Island has a community park, that has amenities such as a playground for kids of all ages, and a basketball court.

If you are a little more adventurous - climb to the top of the lighthouse. The views from that vantage point are incredible.

A short drive across the bridge, and you are in the charming historic town of Apalachicola. Shops and restaurants, gourmet markets and alfresco cafes are plentiful.

Golfing is a short 20 minute drive to the St. James Bay Golf and Country Club. All inclusive, it is complete with pristine greens and a pro shop, and a 19th hole.

The forgotten coast is perfect for the nature lover. Nearby and occupying the vast majority of Franklin County are the Apalachicola National Forest, and Tate's Hell State Park. Both have very well organized trail systems designed to feature the highlights during your hike.

St. George Island is an amazing place to visit and explore. Rent a bike, kayak, boat or golf cart. Explore and enjoy. Make some memories of a lifetime.
