The Phoenix rises again! A NEW PHOENIX comes to you from the St George Island Tour of Homes. Prior to 2015, it was offered for rental by one of the agencies on the island but now has limited availability directly from the owners.
This stunning beachfront home features spectacular Gulf views from the living area, the large open & covered decks and five master suites, including one extra-large master suite with a sitting area. Enjoy surround-sound stereo and a huge HDTV in the great room as well as multiple other TVs/DVDs/VCR in various bedrooms. The kitchen overlooks the dining and living areas and has amenities galore: granite and quartz counter-tops, two dishwashers, double ovens, microwave, over-sized induction cook-top, stand-alone ice-maker, beverage center and wet bar. Extras include an elevator, second refrigerator, tile bathrooms with solid surface counter-tops, ceiling fans, extra capacity high efficiency washer and dryer, high chair and pack-n-play.
For your outdoor pleasure, there is a screened patio, furnished open and covered decks plus a half bath on the lower level so you don’t have to run upstairs from the 12x28 pool (heated for a fee) or beach! We have a private boardwalk to the beach, enclosed hot/cold outdoor shower with double outlets, a large fish cleaning area with sink, and two park-style grills. You’ll find plenty of parking on concrete available either under the house or on the wide driveway.

About Nancy Kirksey
Our family discovered St George Island in 1972 and have spent countless hours enjoying this slice of paradise for over 45 years. Even during times when we didn't have a house of our own, we chose to rent instead. We hope you'll come & share our love for such a special place.
Nancy Kirksey purchased this House in 1974
Why Nancy Kirksey chose East End
Located just off North Florida's Gulf Coast, the 28-mile St. George Island is one of the last barely inhabited and unspoiled barrier islands in Florida – and it is a serene vacation paradise. The island consistently rates as one of the top beaches in the U.S., with miles of white sand, uncrowded expanses for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and fishing, and pristine marshes for wildlife viewing. It is protected by low-density zoning and strict building codes to protect Apalachicola Bay, source of 90% of Florida's oysters. This makes St. George a tranquil beach community with no high rises or chain stores. The island boasts a State Park and numerous special events throughout the year.
What makes this House unique

Great house, outstanding weather, super people & way too much delicious food.
Great house, right on the beach. Lovely open floor plan with nice amenities, awesome wall of windows looking out to the ocean. October is a great time to visit SGI, not as hot or crowded, will definitely be coming back!
Very nice location and house, right on the beach. Will definitely return!
Relaxing and Organized!!!!!
WOW, our family was there 7/23-7/30/2016. We had a great time at the New Phoenix. The layout of the home is just right, all the bedrooms with adjoined bathrooms gives each family private areas. The kids room was playful and decorated for kids. The kitchen was outfitted with nothing left with out a label. Directions were provided for everything you had to use or touch. The pool was inviting (cleaned during our stay) and so was the porch areas underneath for family sitting and good conversation. Parking is nice as there was room for plenty of cars. Outside porches and private beach access were added bonuses. The view was like no other since the entire large room viewed the beach and every BR could see water as well. The large dining table meant everyone could sit and eat together. We had a Murder Mystery night, Taco night, Steak night and Shrimp Boil...... just a few highlights. We will definitely be staying again, hate we have to wait a year to be back........Only drawback was the elevator was out of use and we had the matriarch of our family who is 79. We had hoped that it would be in use. Stairs are kind of scary to her as she has fallen once before...... Great fun had by all...... You will love this place! Oh almost forgot 2 fridges are invaluable. Ice machine is the bomb and the laundry room sported a new high tech wash/dryer and extra linens for use.......They thought of everything!!!!! Thanks Again Nancy for a memory we can never replace......
Bring a friend, you'll have room!
This is the perfect place for a larger than average group to relax and enjoy the beach. It has a very large kitchen-common area that really lets everyone hang out together. The huge table allows everyone to enjoy meals, cards, whatever together. The kitchen supplies are in excellent condition. The fact that it has 2 dishwashers and 2 refrigerators makes it perfect. The top side deck is relatively small but the pool and surrounding deck with a screened in porch more than make up for it. There is plenty of room around the pool for sun and shade seekers. The nice boardwalk to the beach also made our many trips to the sand much easier. We all like that 4 cars could park in the shade! It really is a GREAT house!
This is a fabulous house with everything you could ever ask for: a great porch with a fantastic view, a nice pool & patio, roomy living room & kitchen, plenty of big rooms each with their own bathroom and TVs. It is comfortable and homey and makes for a great beach destination. It can easily accommodate big groups as there are 6 bedrooms and a spacious central area. Ideal for families vacationing together. An elevator and no stairs within the house can be a real plus for some guests. You can't get any closer to the beach that this and the nice boardwalk makes getting there easy. A New Phoenix makes for a perfect beach house on a great island!
