About the property

Bayfront! Private Dock! 6 bedrooms

*January and February monthly rates: $3600 per month*

Unparalleled views of the Apalachicola Bay and St. George Sound from this beautiful 6 bedroom home in St. George Plantation. La Vista is thoughtfully designed to compliment the natural beauty of its serene environment. La Vista's private boat dock (newly rebuilt in spring 2017) is reserved exclusively for guests of this spacious home. From the dock, you are a stone's throw from Bob Sikes Cut: the gateway to the Gulf of Mexico and the most popular fishing spot in the area. So you'll want to bring your boat! Or fish from the dock or the beaches of St. George Island.

The first living floor of La Vista features a large open commons area including two living rooms - one with large flat screen TV and one with a gas fireplace, dining room, a spacious kitchen and large pantry/laundry room. Stunning Bay views through large picture windows can be seen from each of those rooms. There is plenty of room for family and friends to spread out while still having the togetherness of your precious vacation time. Also on the first living floor are a queen master bedroom with private bath, an additional queen bedroom with bay views through the sliding glass doors that lead to the deck, and an additional full bathroom. A large deck spans the bay side of the house for outdoor dining, sunbathing, meditating on the magical sunsets over the Bay, and stargazing at night.

The second living floor has four bedrooms: one king bedroom and one queen bedroom both with large picture windows and glorious Bay views; one additional queen bedroom and one bunk bedroom. Two full bathrooms are also on this floor, one with a jetted tub.

A large screened patio under the house is perfect for dining alfresco, a game of cards, or just catching up with friends and family. An outdoor shower is also under the house. The naturally beautiful and uncrowded beaches of St. George Island are a short 10 minute walk to the Gulf side of the Island, or load the car and drive over in no time!

A charcoal grill is available under the house for preparing the day's catch!

Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

LaVista is our favorite place to stay in the Plantation on St. George Island. The house is located in a secluded wooded area on the bay and is clean, spacious and updated. The owner has done many recent updates--a beautiful new pier with railings on both sides, new landscaping, and new stairs in front of the house. The kitchen is for serious cooks and is equipped with almost everything you will need. The bayside sunsets are beautiful and can be viewed from the large, north balcony, that is the full length of the home. La Vista is only one street over from the beach and only a short walk to Sykes Cut. The house managers, Carla and Roseanne, are easy to work with and prompt to respond to any concerns.

SGI is our family's happy place. Perfect home for the whole family

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoys SGI every year, but this year was exceptionally great! La Vista's location is perfect and the private dock was a blast for the fishermen in the family. I enjoyed the decks, the beautiful walk to the beach and of course, the beach. The kitchen was exceptionally stocked with way more than we needed. The second refrigerator was a life saver! The main floor living area is huge! The only issues with it were the air conditioner on the top floor and the tile floors throughout the house. Even closing the blinds didn't help very much to keep the upstairs comfortable during the day. I didn't mind too much since it cooled off by bedtime. The tile floors are perfect for a beach house, but they are very grimy (the bottoms of our feet turned black after walking barefooted on it). I used the rag mop several times but I felt like I was only moving dirt around. It could use a professional deep cleaning. Thank you Carla Gibbs for a seamless process. Your attention to detail and prompt communication is appreciated.

Very nice house.

  • 3 of 5

The house was perfect. Beautiful house, great location and very clean. The boat friendly part left a lot to be desired. The wind was very strong (10 to 20mph) during our visit and since the boat lift is not available, it was next to impossible to dock the boat. The water is extremely shallow and the dock is very tall. I would not take a boat larger than 19 feet due to the very narrow roads and driveway. We bring our boat on vacation in this area every year and this was the most difficult dock we have used. The experience likely would have been very different had the lift been available. We ended up taking the boat out early due to the difficulties. Over all it was an enjoyable vacation, but the primary reason we rent a house on the bay with a dock, is to keep our boat "safe" and available. I spent a great deal of time trying to keep the boat from being damaged on the dock due to high winds and poor accommodations. I did know upfront the lift was not available but I thought I would be able to tie up safely, which was not the case.

Spring break 2016

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay, very comfortable living. The dock is nice but long. Also be careful walking out to the shallows there are oyster rocks close. It is at the end of the plantation close to sikes cut. Nice beach access close and a quiet beach. Fishing was good. Dolphins came by every day to say hello. Very close to the dock, saying hi and eating fish, very cool. It is 10 min to all the restaurants and main area so plan accordingly.

Beautiful views

  • 3 of 5

This is a nice place very user friendly. It is not for anyone out of shape the stairs are "monsters" . The front entrance is not for small children as the steps have no backs. A child could easily get their foot caught. The boat lift was not available which created the problem of taking my boat out every day. The kitchen is great , everything you need to do any type of cooking with a great gas stove.

Plenty of room!
