About the property

Large open floor plan, split bedroom plan-4 bedrooms/2 baths, large pool & more!



Come enjoy "Mirabella", the best of the beach in this family friendly home with an open, split floor plan featuring all the amenities that you would desire!

Perfect for a large family, several couples, or two families to share! You'll love the large and open living areas where everyone can gather after a long, fun day at the beach! Plenty of room for dining and enjoying time together in this large open space. Wind down and watch the large flat screen TV from the comfortable reclining couches.

You'll love the view of the pool and beach from the large screened and covered porch! Watch the kids have the time of their lives and create lifelong memories!

You'll find the split bedroom plan convenient when hosting family and friends. Each room is spacious with it's own TV.

The north side of the home faces the bike path that runs from 12th street to the state park! There is a front deck facing the privacy of lush oaks and solitude!

Mirabella is conveniently located on the south side of Gulf Beach Drive. The beach is only 50 yards away via a quiet side street with no traffic, (10th Street). The county owns 1/3 acres and a wooden beach boardwalk at the end of 10th Street.

If fishing is your pastime, Mirabella is the perfect home for you! A complete fish-cleaning sink and table along with a park style grill are provided for your enjoyment.

Covered parking for 4 cars protects your car from the sun, and is a lifesaver during a refreshing island rain. An outdoor shower with hot/cold water is convenient for rinsing off after a day in the sun or simply taking a shower to enjoy the fresh air.

Al and Serena Mirabella would love to host you at their gulf-view pool home! Why pay more for the same amenities elsewhere? We offer you the best of our island at the best price.

Contact through VRBO/HomeAway Al and Serena's assistant, Glenn Smith, for further information.

About Serena and Al Mirabella

We both grew up in the area and settled back to live in Apalachicola after Al retired from the U.S. Marine Corp. Serena is a recently retired school teacher and Al recently retired from a 2nd career of selling real estate on St. George Island and the surrounding area. We love our family beach house that has been in our family for years and enjoy hosting our many wonderful guests.

What makes this house unique

Just a short 40 yards to the county owned beach boardwalk! Great view of the Gulf from our house, new private pool, large screened porch, covered parking, and a split bedroom plan with 2 bedrooms on one side of the home and 2 on the other. Mirabella is directly on the beach access path!

Layout was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation! Glenn was super helpful and responsive when I had questions. Kitchen, although very small, was well equipped. Pool , although way too cold to use, was nice. Short walk to beach. Parklike setting was a plus. Only missing the ocean view, couldn't really see it from the house.

Very comfortable & relaxed

This was not my first stay at the Mirabella and I really hope there will be many more to follow. The convenience and location are great. The home is clean and comfortable with room for the family. I love the home and the island.

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time the Mirabella's have allowed our family to stay at their home. And like the first, it was awesome. Dog friendly home with a dog friendly beach is always a plus for our family. Short walk to the beach. The house had everything we needed. Pool was great, so after a great day at the beach, we could spend time at the pool after supper. The locals were all so friendly. We had an awesome week, and hope to return next year.

Simply paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot express enough how wonderful our stay at Mirabella was. The rental process was easy and seamless (Glenn is amazing), all of the photos are true to exactly what you see when you arrive, the walk to the private quiet beautiful beach was easy for both my elderly father (he could drive to the boardwalk first) and my three year old. We were also able to enjoy the pool. We were lucky as the weather was beautiful the entire week of our stay. We fished off shore and from the bridge in town. We tried almost every restaurant in town and none were a disappointment, great food and great service. We hope to return for years to come, thank you for sharing your home with my family.

We love SGI. But this was our first stay at MiraBella. Perfect location for us! Walk to the beach was shorter than expected! We will stay here again!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Pet Fee $25
Tax Rate 9.0%

3 night minimum stay requirement except for a 5 night minimum during Thanksgiving, Christmas/New Years & Spring Break. 7 night Saturday to Saturday stays for the peak Summer High season.

If you bring your dog, there is a pet fee of only $25 per dog. We simply ask that they'd be well behaved & trained, current on flea/tick meds, non-scratchers on doors/windows/furniture, to keep them off the furniture & beds, and that you'd pick up after them in the yard, beach, and island. Due to the fact that your pet is not familiar with his/her surroundings at the house, please bring a kennel in case you plan to leave him/her alone.

The pool can be heated for $350.00 per week. PLEASE NOTE: Pool heaters do not function when the outside air temperature drops below 60 degrees, and it may take several hours for the water temperature to warm up again as the air temperature rises. During January and February, pool heating cannot be guaranteed.

Maximum occupancy allowed is 8 people.

In the event you need to cancel, we provide a full refund providing we can re-rent the dates that you had been holding, which had prevented anyone else from reserving those dates. Purchasing Trip Cancellation insurance is strongly recommended because you never know what unexpected life event could occur.

Manager's Cancellation Policy

  • Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
