About Kerry Carney

We are a small family from Missouri who loves to visit St. George Island as often as possible. We first fell in love with St. George in 2010 and knew that we wanted to be able to share this great island with others.

Kerry Carney purchased this house in 2014

Why Kerry Carney chose Gulf Beaches

Location! Location! Location.....and Price!

When we found The Flamingo, we knew that it would be a great property for families to enjoy. Its close proximity to the beach and its gorgeous pool sealed the deal for us! We knew we could give other families a great getaway at an affordable price. The fact that it was pink was a bonus for our three girls!

Renovating this house was a great family project and we enjoyed every minute of it! We hope our guests can enjoy this home as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The Flamingo is just one short block to the beach-so you are close to the sand without paying beachfront prices. Plus---you can enjoy the gorgeous pool after a long day in the sand!

Lovely landscaping, Updated older Florida home

  • 5 of 5

This is an old-fashioned up dated Florida home. The home was clean and decorated beautifully! The outside shower was a great feature and we used it more than the inside shower. The beach wagon was a great asset. We enjoyed our stay!

Amazing week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week at the flamingo! It was set up perfectly! It was very clean and well stocked. It was so nice to have our own private pool and the guys enjoyed the area to clean the fish they caught. The parking was also great for the boat. The walk to the beach was very short and it was nice that the public beach access is right there. The location was great and I enjoyed riding my bike to the donut shop in the mornings since it was only a mile away!

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

If you have never been to St. George Island you are missing out. Here is way we enjoy this place: Nice and clean house with a pool, Beaches are not crowded, Ocean is clean, Short 1 block walk to the beach, and they provide a beach cart with chairs and an umbrella. If you have kids the pool is a must.

This is a great house on a great island!

Great location and very clean

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to St George for over 15 years. This is one of the best houses I've stayed in. I really like it being a one story ranch. Pool is right there and beach is a three min walk.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great compliment Glenn! We work hard to keep the Flamingo a great rental for our guests and we are so happy when our guests enjoy their stay so much. The Flamingo really is in a great location as well----close to the beach, without the beach front price. We look forward to having your family back for your 16th year on SGi!
