About Julie

We live in Galveston Texas, and have been looking for 'The Place' we want to retire, and finally found St George Island. It is never crowded, and the fishing is world class. We own Four homes here and will be on the island full time in just a couple years.

Julie purchased this house in 2013

Why Julie chose St. George Island

We chose St George Island because it reminds us of 'Old Florida', no Walmarts or Home Depots, not even a traffic light. The fishing is outstanding and the check out the 2012 Sports Illustrated swim suit addition and you'll find some the best photos were taken here on St George Island.

What makes this house unique

Our home is a charming coastal getaway. The beach path is directly in front of the house. The views and the sounds of the ocean had us hooked at hello. We work hard to keep the place in top condition so we know you will have a Clean, well appointed home for your stay.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful experience at Going Coastal! Dolphins, stingrays, and starfish everyday! Perfect beach house to enjoy a relaxing vacation. We have begun planning our next stay at Going Coastal.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

We have been to SGI 4 times and have now stayed at Going Coastal twice. It is the perfect beach house. The house has great amenities and gorgeous views. The beach is never crowded and it's so peaceful. We love it so much that we are discussing staying longer next year!!

We really loved this property and we have stayed in several on the island. The owner was very helpful and checked in us frequently which is awesome!! We will use this property again for family get together. Unfortunately, it is a bit expensive when it is just my husband and I thank you to Julie for an amazing vaca! Glenn and Corby

Perfect Spot for Relaxing Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Going Coastal was everything we wanted (and needed!). The house was well-maintained and in a wonderful location on the Island (walking distance to everything, but private and not crowded on the beach). We took our children and our chocolate lab with us and everything enjoyed the beach and the calm ocean waves! We saw dolphins every day had everything we needed for the week! The kids loved the freedom to walk to get ice cream after dinner while we enjoyed some down time watching the peaceful scenery. Wonderful week!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Going Coastal is the perfect house for the beach lover who also likes to be close to restaurants and bars. It is right on the beach as we already knew but were pleasantly surprised at the variety of restaurants and bars within walking distance. We had great meals at the Blue Parrot and oysters at Eddie Teachers and Patty's just to name a few. House is beautifully decorated with flat screen tv's, wi if and a great deck for dolphin watching. Highly recommended. We plan to book for next year.

Great Beach House on SGI

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed an entire month in January 2015 at Going Coastal. We are regular winter renters on SGI, but this was our first time at this location. This house was nicely furnished and clean with updated appliances. It was right on the beach and has a partial boardwalk to the beach. Views are beautiful and the back deck is good with picnic table. Gate on back stairs is great for our dogs and the location made an easy walk to the lighthouse and playground. The owner was very nice and checked on us during our stay. The house has basic kitchen setup and there are extensive beach accessories with a fish cleaning area. There are new flat screen TVs in the living room and all three bedrooms along with DVD player and wifi and the cable is good. The decor is very attractive with tile floors, large dining table and a stylish beach look. Good storage and the full size washer and dryer in a separate utility room was a nice advantage. The covered parking was an added bonus. We would recommend this location for couples and families as it has a split floor plan that works for both. The owners have several rentals near each other n case you have multiple families who want to come at the same time. We would certainly consider a return to Going Coastal.
