About the property

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Private Heated Pool, Elevator,

'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.

Overall it was GREAT!!

  • 4 of 5

I loved the large open space with the

kitchen/living room areas. The bedrooms were very nice size rooms

to even put twin air mattresses in! Nice size bathrooms and plenty of hot water. Parking area and pool were wonderful. Only downfall was no stairs from the deck areas to the pool/garage. It could have supplied extra throw blankets and more washcloths.

2nd year and we will return!!!

  • 5 of 5

Carla and her staff are wonderful to work with. The house was spacious for all 4 families. The pool was perfect. Lots of beach toys, pool toys and beach chairs. This was our 4th year to travel to SGI for Spring Break and our 2nd year staying at Why Knot. We plan to return every year if possible!

Where do you live?

Great family vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

This home works well for our extended family. We have plenty of room for everyone in the living/dining/kitchen area and yet there is plenty of room for privacy too. We have stayed here twice and will consider again. The elevator is important for family members with mobility issues. I wish there were grab bars in the upstairs master shower. Some members of our party felt that new mattresses were needed. We have enjoyed the pool and the short path to the beach. We like to rent a golf cart; so, we like to rent something on east or west Gorrie but not too close to the center of the island. Why knot? is in a perfect location.

Where do you live?

Great home for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent home for our family. There was ample room on the top floor for everyone to be together but plenty of space for privacy too. With grandparents and babies, an elevator is a must. We enjoyed the pool area. I'm sure the palm tree shade around the pool is very welcomed during the summer, but we needed more sunny areas in October. It is an easy walk to the beach. We have already planned our next stay here.
