Overview

About the property

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath - Gulf Views Galore!

A Turtle's Dream is as close to the Gulf of Mexico's water’s edge as you can get! Any closer and you'll get wet. The large beach facing deck has covered and uncovered areas, with ample furnishings for all, to either enjoy your morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf, read a book, sunbathe, or watch the dolphins swim. The white sandy beaches of St. George Island are just steps away. When you can manage to steal your gaze away from the stunning view of the Gulf, gather inside this warm and inviting home featuring elegant woodwork throughout, glowing heart pine floors, and cypress tongue and groove walls. The great room with lovely beamed ceilings and built in bookshelves around a gas fireplace is the central gathering place for meals and catching up with family and friends. The well appointed kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances has everything you could possibly need to prepare the day's catch or your family's favorite recipes. A stand alone ice maker and lots of extras make this kitchen a joy to be in. An extra refrigerator is also provided in the storage room under the house. Enjoy family tournaments at the pool table alongside a wall of glass doors showing off the amazing Gulf views. Or retreat to the quiet respite of one of four bedrooms. Two bedrooms with king size beds face the beach with sliding glass doors to the deck and stunning Gulf views, as well as private baths with double vanities. The third bedroom also has a king size bed and a private bath, and the fourth bathroom is convenient for both the fourth bedroom featuring a triple bunk bed, and the great room. All beds invite you for a restful night's sleep or lazy afternoon nap with Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. A pack-n-play is available to make things a little easier for parents.

Downstairs under the house is a large concrete parking pad with fish cleaning sink, picnic table and outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Flat screen televisions and blu-ray players are in each bedroom and in the living room.

Bed sizes: 3 kings, bunk bed (twin on top, full on bottom, twin pull out trundle), queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

Very well stocked. Very hospitable service. Unbelievable nature...turtle and dolphin.

  • 5 of 5

We rented as our first annual family beach vacation: grand children, dogs and all. It couldn't have been more memorable. From being first on a new turtle Egg nest to kayaking with the dolphins. It was heavenly. Hoping to make it back next year!

wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at A Turtle's Dream. It is by far the best equipped rental house we have ever stayed in. It contained everything we wanted, plus more! We especially appreciated the ice maker and additional fridge/freezer. The porch with it's magnificent view is a great place for meals and just to enjoy the view. As other reviewers have mentioned we saw dolphins from there daily. Our last morning we were lucky enough to see turtle tracks to a nest right outside the house. We were told by the turtle patrol it was the very first nest of the season. For whoever is lucky enough to be staying in the house mid-July you should see the baby turtle tracks back to the ocean. (Expected date @ July 15th). Wish we could be there!

Overall the place has all you need for the beach also two pet stations for pet waste clean up

  • 4 of 5

The place has it all when it comes to cooking meals in just look around and you should find what you need. Beds are comfortable and the A/C works for those hot days just don't forget to keep doors closed when it's on. Gate on the top deck keeps the dogs from running off and there are a few rinse stations to remove sand before going inside. Have stayed at Turtles Dream several times with no complaints. If you do run into an issue just call Carla she will get it taken care of.One thing to remember is it's island time so relax and don't get in a hurry even when ordering food when dining out.

Quality Rental: "Five Star" Rating!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental, very clean, very comfortable. Property management very professional, helpful, and nice. A step up in price but well worth it if you have need for a large rental. Our extended family had a great experience here (we have rented previously on St. George Island). The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked well. "Five Stars"!
