Beautiful beach house in a breath-taking gated community.
Feel like you've stepped back in time as you drive through Apalachicola with its quaint shops, restaurants, and shrimp/oyster boats. There's lots to see and do (and eat!) in this historic fishing town. Next, head across two loooong bridges, over some of the best oyster beds in the world, taking you further out into the gulf. As you approach St. George Island, the historic lighthouse and museum grow on the horizon to greet you. The island offers a pristine state park on the east end, a nice town center with a few restaurants, and the plantation gated-community on the west end. You'll immediately see the striking white sand beaches on the gulf and remarkable marsh-scapes on the bay side. Your home-away-from-home is west. After stopping to check-in at the gate, drive in and welcome the quiet serenity and peace as you drive through the beautiful landscape of The Plantation - winding around tennis courts, swimming pools, bike paths, and a private airport runway. Your destination is amidst beautiful homes on acre lots, at the end of a quiet street, surrounded by sand dunes. You're excitement grows as you realize you are not staying next to the beach, but on the beach! A tropically land-scaped acre of heavenly beachfront property plus a beautiful luxury 4-bedroom home to spoil you and your family.
You never know who you may see...Like country music? Well, you might just see Jason Aldean and his new wife strolling down our boardwalk to enjoy the sand and sea as he recently bought the home directly behind ours. Like Rock-n-Roll?? How would you feel if you ran into Kid Rock as you were walking into the local grocery store?....or how about an actress such as Suzanne Somers whose home is also just down the beach a ways...you just never know who you might encounter on our beautiful island.
Swim on Inn has 2 King beds, 1 Queen, 2 Twin bunk beds and a twin day bed in 4 spacious bedrooms.
Cooks will be delighted with the wonderfully outfitted kitchen. And with 2 separate living areas, everyone will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy their beach vacation.
Decks on every level of the house, each with an inspiring view of the white sand and clear water, and a ground floor deck with gazebo. Start watching for the dolphins, sea turtles, and your other marine neighbors.
By the time you arrive, you will feel the stress melt away. So much to do and see... or so little... your choice. Swim on Inn - and enjoy your vacation!

Why Manager, Swim On Inn chose Plantation
Our family has always loved the beach. We love those little unique spots...the quiet and the laid back. St. George is just that type of island. With its miles of walking and bicycle paths, beautiful sand beaches and lack of high rises and bumper-to-bumper traffic...we knew this was The place for us! We have found the island is truly a place to slow down from our very hectic lives and spend quality time with our family and friends. We feel truly blessed to have found our home on the island and we hope you find the peace and serenity we do when you visit our home away from home.

This was our first time to St George Island but it certainly won't be our last. Swim on Inn is a great vacation spot with everything we needed for a wonderful family vacation. Annette was very responsive and helpful with advice on things to do on the island. Everyone we encountered on the island was friendly, helpful and eager to make our stay great.
Thanks for the memories!!
Our family of 6 adults and 4 grandchildren from Texas LOVED this "perfect" home and St. George Island!
We had everything we needed! The beach was clean, private, and just a few steps from our door over the boardwalk through the dunes.
The home was large enough for everyone to have their own space when needed. My husband read books, and the children played games provided
in the den area, when we were not at the water collecting shells, jumping waves, and making sand castles. The screened deck was where we spent the evenings. We rented kayaks and went out to meet the dolphin, saw a sea turtle pop it's head up, and saw a live starfish in the shallow water.
This was the beach I remembered as a child growing up Florida, not the over crowded, over commercialized, and partying beaches found in many places today.
I had excellent communications with the owner while planning our trip and highly recommend Swim on Inn.
"Thanks for the memories!"

We are so happy to have been able to share our home with you and your family!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and also for the pictures you sent us of your vacation!
We hope you will come back and stay with us again in the future!!
We had a great family vacation at Swim on Inn!
The ice machine, elevator & screened porch added to our experience. The bar area was well stocked with lovely stemware. Cooking in the kitchen was a pleasure. Everything was labeled for easy finding. The house was very well equipped. Outside area was great for the fishermen in the group - very comfortable and inviting. The grill was a little worn and the cover fell apart on our first use. We used it several times. We have been coming to St. George Island for 15 years and this house rated right there at the top.
Thank you very much for your kind review of our property!
We were very surprised and sorry to read in your review that you had issues with the grill outside!! Had you only reached out to us during your stay to let us know the grill was broken, we would've worked on replacing it right away so that you could have enjoyed your experience a bit more!!
St George Is, Fl is a wonderful beach to visit!

Absolutely perfect ❤️️
Our family had an amazing time at swim on inn! The home was spacious and clean. We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our family's first trip to SGI. Lots of great memories made here! Can't wait to return.
We are so happy that you enjoyed our beautiful island and our home!
We hope that you will come back and stay with us again in the not-too-distant future!!
A great time for 2 families
First of all, the owner was pleasant to work with. She stayed in contact before during and after our stay to make sure everything was ok. The highlight of the house was the screened in porch, perhaps the largest such porch of any houses around us. The screen let us watch the sun go down with a bug-free with a breeze! When we arrived on Saturday, one of the first things we saw were dolphins just off shore....and we saw them about that time every day of our stay. We would definitely recommend this house for anyone's vacation.
Thank you so much Pam! We are so glad you and your family had such a wonderful time during your vacation!! It was our pleasure to have you all stay in our home and we hope that you will be back to stay again in the not-too-distant future.
Things to do: Beach it! Look for shells. Grab a fishing rod and reel in your dinner. Visit the beautiful St. George Island Lighthouse. Bicycling/Walking - The island has miles of paved bike paths. Bird watching...all year long. Launch a kayak or stand-up paddle board into either the Bay or Gulf. Rent a wave runner and zip across the gulf. Museums - Franklin County has museums spread out all across the county. Photography - The island is a photographer's paradise with a stunning shot around every corner...not to mention lots of shots of your family having fun! Look up at the stars - without all the bright lights at night, you might just spy a falling star. State Park - Spend the day at Julian G. Bruce State Park on the east end of the island. Apalachicola - View the historic homes, wander through the shops...and be sure to eat some of the best tasting oysters on the Gulf.
