About Steve & Liza Taylor

We are a large family who love the beach and our doggies! We have always loved beaches in the panhandle and discovered SGI 7 years ago. Our daughter was married at a house on the bay, and our son popped the question in top of the light house a few years later. My husband has worked for a large home improve company for over 20 years, and I have retired from the insurance industry. I grew up going to Ft. Walton, Destin, and Navarre beaches. My husband grew up in Kentucky and traveled to Panama City a few times. We both enjoy traveling, yet only truly relax when we are just 'chilling' on SGI. We came back year after year, and in 2014 purchased our little piece of paradise.

Steve & Liza Taylor purchased this house in 2014

Why Steve & Liza Taylor chose St. George Island

We looked… and looked... and looked for a property that we: a) could afford, and b) had some nice large trees and scrub oaks. We wanted new construction so we could put our own signature on the home. After two years of looking for a plan, we decided on one that had a loft for the kids, 3 bedrooms on the 1st level, and the main living area on the 2nd level, so we could enjoy the view while awake! We love porch time, and this plan has 2 levels of porches on 3 sides!

From dining to swinging, the porch will be the place to be!

What makes this house unique

This home is my (Liza) personal project. I enjoy interior design & construction, since retirement, I have redesigned a 1928 bungalow and a 1945 cottage in our home town. Now I have set my sights on designing a home that is comfortable both for my family and yours. Our home will have many features designed for the comfort of you, your kids AND your pooches. We will have an outdoor shower for you AND fido. Fido will even have their own towels! Memory foam beds and feather pillows will wrap you in comfort after spending quality time 'round the fire pit with your family! We will have charging stations for all the cell phones and camera batteries. A wine area, and extra coolers for your adult beverages. The kitchen will be equipped for a chef, so bring one if you are not one!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family has just returned from a week at Legacy Retreat. The pictures don't do it justice. Liza has put so much thought into the design and functionality. It looks like something off HGTV. It is located in a very quiet, peaceful area. Perfect for walking our dogs. I can be a bit critical and am seldom pleased with cleanliness, but this place is immaculate. And the comfort of her guests is obviously important since the bedding, linens and pillows are just sumptuous. The entire house is well stocked, including the kitchen, dining and all bath and bedrooms. It is very accommodating to have beach towels, chairs and a cooler provided for your use instead of having to pack those items. The bedrooms are cozy and beautiful and the upstairs loft/bedroom is perfect for kids to play. Liza has a great deal of pride in her property and is a pleasure to work with. Professional and quick to respond to any question. Her attention to the details makes it so much easier to just relax and enjoy. I would stay there again any time I visit the island.

This house is fabulous! The design of the house was very planned, clean and organized!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house was perfect! The kitchen is well equipped for any meal that you may want to cook! Every square foot of the house was well thought out and no space was wasted! Fabulous porches! Our family thought the pulley system was awesome for the groceries and luggage...it made loading and unloading fun and fast! It was our first trip to St. George and it won't be our last!

Amazing and beautiful! Nothing left out!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I not only enjoyed our stay, but truly felt at like we were at a resort while at Legacy Retreat. The property is as stated in the description, but the owners leave nothing out to make their guests have a truly wonderful vacation. The island is robust with with activities (beaches, state park, lighthouse, history, water activities). There was something for everyone in our family. Liza answered every question within minutes and never made us feel as if we were bothering her! A top notch owner! We can't wait to visit again!

One of the best places we have stayed. Clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Kitchen is equipped for cooking, beds are comfortable and plenty of porch room. We will be back because place was perfect and owner was wonderful.

Map

We are located at the far west end, away from the traffic of the heavily populated areas of the island. Quiet dirt road that is rarely traveled. Super dark at night to star gaze from the decks. Ahhhhh peace and quiet!
