Property description

Island Sand Dollar was exactly what we wanted at St George. A place where we could go to sleep with the sound of the surf in our ears. Beautiful views from inside and outside the house, and no logistic struggles to be on the beach. We wanted this house from the moment we saw her. All ISD needed was some love after being a getaway for 30 years. Karen and I did a fairly complete renovation of ISD this fall (completed for now Oct 2013). New Baths, Kitchen, Mattresses, Fans etc etc etc. ISD is now fully hurricane code correct, with new windows, doors and Board & Batten siding. New flat screen TV's through out the house. Netflix and full cable tv with HD sports channels for the big game weekends. New stainless appliances and a lovely Surf Green granite bar and counters. Huge deck across the front of the house is the place to enjoy the ocean views and sounds. The path to the beach is straight ahead of the house and it takes about 100 steps to be feet wet. Great Adirondack chairs on the front porch give you the perfect place to relax and enjoy your life at the beach. We have tried to make ISD what we wanted all those years when we visited here. I am sure you will enjoy choosing Island Sand Dollar for your escape.

Our local property manager, Jamie, will be standing by to assist you.

Island Sand Dollar is conveniently located in the East Gulf Beach area, just across the street from the Gulf. There are unobstructed views from almost every room in the house. The State Park is right down the street with incredible beaches, huge sand dunes and all the privacy you could want, not that St George is ever crowded. There are a few great places for eating out on the Island such as, The Beach Pit (great breakfast), The Blue Parrot (beach view and light fare), BJ's Pizza (awesome) and a few others like Subway. On the island are a few places for drinks and music. Harry A's is a bit of a tourist place, usually rock and roll, drink specials, dancing etc. Eddy Teach's is a locals place with great atmosphere, usually live music, great oysters and hamburgers, VERY casual. Also Apalachicola is just a short drive across the bridges for outstanding food at Tamara's, The Owl (our favorite 'night out'), Ira's at the Gibson Inn and quite a few others. Cocktails are abundant at The Owl Tap Room (Great Happy Hour 4-630) as well as quite a few other spots. Oyster City Brewing Company is opening this year and should be putting out some amazing local brews. There are so many relaxing things to do around here that you could forget about the best thing St George has going, which is to just relax, go all 'island time' and reconnect with yourself and those you love. This is a great island and our Island Sand Dollar is a great place to experience it.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Karen and I (Don) currently live in Newnan, GA. We are working our transition to living on the island but still about 3-4 years away. I'm a Pilot (B737) and Karen sells insurance for Aflac. This picture is Karen, sisters and our Moms on their annual spring girls week.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches, Eastpoint, FL, USA:
I have been restoring historic homes here in Newnan for about 15 years. What started as a hobby has become my second career. This is why ISD was perfect for us. Restoring this house was a labor of love. I finally got to do a house for me instead of just getting it ready to sell. Houses have individual character and this one loved light. We have opened up the kitchen and windows to allow the outside in. I love preparing food or drink at the counter and looking up at the beach. Island Sand Dollar has been the base for a lot of memories and now has been renovated to do just that, even better.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Your vacation at the beach should have the beach readily accessible, not requiring a 2-3 block slog. The beach path is right in front of the house and you are on the beach in moments. I believe we have beachfront views and access, at across the street pricing. The relaxing oversize furniture and great location is the perfect place for your affordable getaway.
