About the Property

Private 3BR/2 Bath Overlooking The Bay With Open Floor Plan And Tropical Decor

Into the Mystic, our adorable cottage style home is not only affordable but filled with many charming touches. The house is in a private location with no neighboring houses in sight. Into the Mystic has a screened in, as well as an open porch with plenty of seating, overlooking the bay. Both areas are perfect for enjoying morning coffee, afternoon dining (electric and charcoal grills), or evening cocktails. During the day, birds including eagles soar high above the bay. At night you can sometimes make out the band playing at the oyster shack down the road.
The tropical colors and beach themed decor make the cottage bright and cheerful. There is a spacious master bedroom with a king bed, walk in closet, and en suite bath. Complimentary WiFi, Direct TV, and Netflix are included in the rate. The remaining bedrooms are on the opposite side of the living space with a full bath in between. All bedrooms have ample closet space and their own flat screen TV.
The large open living and kitchen area is comfortable and well equipped for cooking, entertaining, and relaxing. A small laundry room off the kitchen has a full size washer and dryer. There are shelves of books, games, and beach themed DVD's for the kids. The kitchen has all new stainless appliances, including a dishwasher and wine fridge. A reverse osmosis water system provides high quality drinking water. Except for the tiled bathrooms, the entire house is covered with wood flooring. There is AC of course, but there are also 6 ceiling fans and even a portable electric fireplace for those occasional chilly nights.
It is about a 99 second ride or 5 minute walk to the beautiful wide beach. Bikes are included in the rental rate, and the 'surf shack' has beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, sand toys and more available for your use. There is an outdoor foot shower, as well as a full sized outdoor shower with hot water.
Into the Mystic..... a peaceful beach get away that will ' rock your gypsy soul! '

The State Park is a few miles away and can be easily accessed on bikes on the paved bike path. Enjoy a few restaurants with food, drinks, and music right on the island. The new Paddy's Raw Bar as well as The Black Marlin are easily walkable from the property/no need to drive. Also, Apalachicola is a short drive across the bridges and has many outstanding restaurants from oyster bars to fine dining and some in between. There are many historical buildings, neat architecture, and quirky little shops to explore.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are retired baby boomers w/ no children except our sweet black lab. Born + raised in the Buffalo area we've traveled to FL in search of sun + warmth for much of our lives. We've dragged nieces + nephews up and down the east and west coasts + have visited all the usual beach towns. About 5 years before my wife retired from teaching we stumbled upon this unusual place called Saint George Island. After doing some research + finding it was dog friendly, we decided to give it a try. We fell in love with SGI , renting led to a desire to buy + then the perfect property for us came along. Into the Mystic has fulfilled our dream of owning a modest but comfortable beach cottage to enjoy with our dog, family, and friends. The former owners of this sweet house were unusual year round + lifetime residents of the Island. It was lovingly taken care of but was in dire need of an updated beachy makeover ; now almost complete. The secluded location is what lured us to buy the property + we consider it to be 1 of the 'Mystic's' best features. We enjoy morning coffee on the screened porch as eagles and seabirds soar over the bay. Next we walk Posey on the bike path or beach for a little exercise. After breakfast we're off in the golf cart back to the beach where we often relax with a good book. Afternoons we frequently head over the bridges to historic Apalachicola to enjoy an early dinner on the deck of our favorite restaurant. While slurping oysters + sipping a frosty one we watch the shrimp boats head through the marsh + down the creek. Once back home we plan to watch the evening news but just as often we're apt to flip on Oyster radio to listen to some funky beach tunes. Early evening finds us back down at the beach w/ the night sky filled w/ stars so brilliant + close you feel you can reach out + grab them. Finally it's time to sleep while the tree frogs sing their lullaby. Next morning (God willing) we get to do it all over again. Life IS good at the beach !

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches, Eastpoint, FL, USA:
Location , location, location !

The Unique Benefits at this House:
SGI feels like a beach town stuck in the fifties; we call it 'Mayberry at the Beach'. Like a Van Morrison song SGI and Into the Mystic just makes you feel good !
