'Why Knot?' bring the whole family to this glorious home located just across a quiet street from the beach boasting unobstructed views of the brilliant Gulf waters.
The first living level features 4 nicely appointed bedrooms. The first bedroom is a king master suite with private bath, deck access through a sliding glass door and a great view of the beach. This bedroom also has a small convertible twin bed that also serves as a rather comfy love seat. The second bedroom is also a king master suite (futon also available in this bedroom) with private bath and a wall of windows offering a stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico. The third bedroom features a king bed, deck access through a sliding glass door, and great beach views - this bedroom shares a bath with the 4th bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds (4 twins). The first floor also features a morning kitchen with small refrigerator, sink and coffee maker, as well as a spacious laundry room.
All bedrooms feature flat screen TVs.
The second floor offers the 5th bedroom - a large king master suite with deck access through a sliding glass door and glorious beach views. The large private bath features a jetted tub, separate shower, double vanity, and walk-in closet. The large gathering place for the whole family is on the second floor with open living/dining/kitchen. When you can manage to steal away your gaze from the gorgeous beach views from all angles of these rooms, you'll find spacious, comfortable furnishings, a large flat screen TV with DVD player, and a well appointed and designed kitchen.
It is, however, all about the outdoors on St. George Island. And your personal private oasis is 'Why Knot?'! Large furnished decks provide unobstructed views of the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. A glistening pool (approximately 18' x 36') with a large pool deck is your private reprieve from a steamy day on the beach. The pool can be heated for an additional fee in spring and fall if you'd like. An enclosed outdoor shower, fish cleaning sink and park style charcoal grill are under the house. A small fenced in area for the dogs is provided under the house, in the shade, should you need it.
There is covered parking under the house as well as additional parking in the driveway.
Why Knot? has it all! We'd love for your family to enjoy our little piece of paradise.

We stayed at why knot for a week March/April 2018, its across from the beach and has great views of the gulf. The house has a master on the top floor with a large living room, dining area and well appointed kitchen. The lower floor has three bedrooms with large beds and a fourth with two bunks in it. One bathroom is shared but the other rooms all have a bath. The master bath is spectacular with a whirlpool tub and extra large glass shower.
My extended family really enjoyed our stay.
First impressions are very important and this property did not disappoint. Very nice.
We have stayed here before and every year is always a pleasure. Carla and Roxanne were there any time for any questions big or small. We really enjoy renting from them and plan to continue to do so.
3rd stay at Why Knot?
This house works very well for our family. We have room for togetherness in the large well equipped kitchen, dining room and living room and plenty of places for privacy. The large decks are wonderful for relaxing and enjoying the views. The pool is large and fun. We have had the pool heated for our December visits. We all like the amenities, easy beach access and the location of Why Knot? Owners and manager Carla Gibbs make communication and our stay perfect.
R&R galore!!!! Would highly recommend Why Knot as your home away from home.
Had a great stay. House worked well for three families. Big enough for togetherness but offered everyone individual space as well. Pool area large. Owner had a full closet of beach/pool toys. Beach towels provided. All laundry/dish soaps provided as well as an endless supply of garbage bags. Fast and easy communication with owner. It was a 5* vacation!!!
We enjoyed our stay at Whyknott. The house and accommodations were just as one would hope for a comfortable stay. Would not hesitate to rent this property in the future if it continues to be available as we noted it is currently up for sale. Perfect location and suitable for multiple generations to interact and yet have space for themselves. The pool was a hit with the kids and the elevator a big hit with grandparents transporting luggage. Definitely a five star experience.
Great Family Vacation Destination
" Why Knot" was a great place to stay for our family vacation ( four families, 14 people ranging in age from 70 years to 6 mos)... enough space so we did not feel cramped and a great living area for visiting and eating. The views are fantastic and the porch space plentiful. The elevator is a plus for anyone with knee/hip issues and for heavy luggage/ food. Beach is fairly easy access, family friendly and not crowded even in July. Kids enjoyed the pool after coming from the beach. Outdoor shower and hose in the parking/storage area were great for washing the beach sand off people and equipment. Beach is fantastic place for taking pics in the early evening. Overall a fun family week !!
