About Julie Mooring

Two brothers and their wives. One from the San Antonio, TX area and one from Rome, GA.

Julie Mooring purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie Mooring chose Plantation

Christmas of 2012, we spent time on St. George. After just a couple of days, we knew we wanted to own there. Searching tirelessly with a realtor, when we walked in this house, we immediately knew it was the one for us. It felt like home!

One of the couples had owned a home on another barrier island for 10 years and knew there was nothing to compare with the pristine beaches, fabulous shells, birds, stars, wildlife, water sports, and the people.

Now that we have young grandchildren, we realized that we wanted to be somewhere that is more accessible and with medical care readily available. St. George and the Plantation were exactly what we wanted.

What makes this house unique

The natural beauty of the lush tropical landscaping and no crowds drew us here.

Beautiful, clean and convenient access to beach.

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful vacation and made some great memories in Julie’s house. St George Island was a perfect beach location, not crowded and the kids had plenty of space to enjoy.

Loved our private pool, and the balconies on each level. I can’t say enough of how clean and neat the house was.

Julie was always available to answer any questions I had and was kind enough to offer suggestions when needed regarding where to shop and other activities.

We went on a beautiful dolphin/sunset cruise.

Thanks again , Julie, we would love to come back again.

A fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a fun, relaxing and perfect weather week we had in St George Island at “An Island Mooring”! It was perfect for our family of 5 adults/4 children. The house was spotless and had all the comforts of home. Wonderful open living area, screened porches and a perfect pool/entertainment area. The heavy duty beach cart made our short trek to the beach so much easier along the awesome trail. We enjoyed having beach towels/toys/games and bikes available to us. Beautifully decorated and a bathroom in every bedroom made it so nice! We will definitely be back! Thank you Belinda & Julie for the awesome hospitality!!

Awesome house and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at An Island Mooring. It was more than enough room with a large open concept living room. The pool was the perfect size and there were olenty of seating around the pool and in the House. There was a nice little path to the beach and the beach cart was very helpful. If you like a nice, peaceful vacation in a beautiful setting close to the beach and your own private pool.....then this is the place!!! We enjoyed ourselves. Thanks Julie

Owner's Response: I’m so glad you had such a great time! The house does have lots of space both inside and out with places to play in the sun and shade. We think the island is the perfect place to escape with restaurants not too far away. I agree the shaded path is such a charming way to reach the beach in just a couple of minutes and once there, there are not a lot of people. We look forward to having you visit us again soon! Take care, Julie

Perfect vacation home (though my six-year-old would like it to be his permanent home)

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Belinda, thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your home. Your hospitality and attention to detail and to our comfort was very appreciated. We were two families of four, and adults and kids alike had a great vacation. Subtropical Storm Alberto couldn't keep us from having fun, as we felt safe and secure in your well-built home, and had a closetful of fun rainy-day games and puzzles to enjoy. Highly recommend this home with a pristine pool, and a short, lovely walk to the beach on a sandy path through coastal pines and palms. We will be back!

Wonderful stay! Would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located, only a short walk to the beach. We loved having the pool and enjoyed the screened porches! Plenty of living space for our entire group! The beach cart and towels are definitely a nice perk! We would highly recommend 'An Island Mooring' to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway on St. George!

The Forgotten Coast is exactly that. Quiet and peaceful with lots to do but with a relaxing feel and no crowds. Florida's oldest seafood festival is Nov 1st and so much fun. The March Chili Cook Off is a must. Art is very important to the Apalachicola community with a huge Plein Air Festival in May. There is always something to do, but only if you want to!
