Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

WILD BLUE YONDER is your perfect getaway any time of year. Park your boat and all your cars underneath out of the sun and enjoy the relaxing beach and bay views from this beautiful, custom-built house. When it is time for fun -- dive into WILD BLUE YONDER's heated private pool, beach access just steps away, dock access, state park bike trails, or the two boat ramps only a few miles away. 323 paces to heavenly Gulf waters or approx 300 yards to the community dock on the Bay...your choice.

This is a real house. Three-thousand-plus square feet of beautiful new beach house. With the master on the main floor and another whole living area upstairs with more bedrooms, this is the perfect house for the romantic two-person getaway, the family reunion, or multi-family beach vacations. If you need room for even more, we will attempt to work with the house next door to schedule that as well. Wild Blue Yonder sleeps between ten to 14 in four bedrooms. There is one King, two queens, two doubles, and two queen-size sleeper sofas. Unlike most island rentals, LINENS ARE ALREADY PROVIDED IN THE PRICE...PLUS NO CLEANING FEE!

In the kitchen and at the two large tables, you can enjoy your quiet dinner for two, put together the day's 'help-yourself-sandwich' line, or just spread out the pizza boy's latest delivery. The two large living areas are ideal for good 'together' family entertainment time or equally as good for giving the adults and the kids their personal 'space' to enjoy their styles of music, videos, or just peace and quiet. In these living areas there are five TVs, five Blu-Ray/DVD players (with internet access and HDMI plugs if you have games or a Netflix Account), a video library, and various books/games.

Although Wild Blue Yonder is designed for relaxing, sometimes you just cannot break free from work or need to stay connected. We have free high-speed Internet access and of course free long distance. Finally, for those of you with small children, we are prepared. We have been there and done that - do not worry about bringing the big stuff - we have got you covered with three baby cribs and three high chairs.

Outside is just as packed with things you will need on your well-deserved vacation. For instance, the pool. Wild Blue Yonder's pool is more than a wading pool. Just like the house, it is a real-size pool and waiting for you. Whether you are coming from the heated pool or a day at the beach, the outside shower ensures a sand-free house. After a day of surf, deep-sea, or bay fishing, clean your haul at the outside fish cleaning station. And finally, do not forget the basketball hoop for the nightly family grudge match. Make sure to take in the beautiful sunsets on the Apalachicola Bay from the community dock.

Wild Blue Yonder is perfect for family reunions and starting your multi-generation traditions.

Explore the area from the house to the beach and the dock and the closest boat ramp. Just put in 1303 East Gulf Beach Drive, St George Island, FL 32328 into your favorite maps program.

Hope to see you in our guest book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful weekend at Wild Blue Yonder and are already planning our 2014 retreat. This is our 10th year of our church group crafting weekend and we cannot pick the best thing of our vacation. But we can say thank you for allowing us to share your home...it was great.

This was the perfect house for us

  • 5 of 5

The title says it all. The location is awesome and the folks at Collins we're fantastic. The house was plenty large enough to accommodate 12 of us. We loved the layout of the house and the child accessories we're well used considering our first 19 month old grandbaby was with us. The only complaint that I have worth typing is that the pool pump definitely needs replaced. I'm booking next years trip as of right now. The island itself is a perfect get away with lots of friendly locals and places to checkout.

Beautiful house on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

We just love staying at this house. We have stayed here a few times and each time, something new is added to the house. The new TV is awesome even though we were too busy to watch much TV. We really enjoy the beautiful house with pool, the location is perfect for the beach and we can sit outside on the front deck and hear the waves. We picked up fresh seafood down the road, and rode our bikes to the State Park. Plan to return next year.

Maintenance is an issue

  • 1 of 5

We are currently at this house. It is a beautiful house and great setting. The folks at Collins' Vacation Rentals are very friendly. However, the lack of maintenance is a HUGE issue. The refrigerator barely keeps things cool, not cold and smells like rotten shrimp. One of the tubs does not drain. The pool filter system is loud and doesn't sound like it is running properly. No basketball hoop as described and promised to my kids. The parking area under the house is huge, but it also smells like rotten shrimp. A couple gallons of white paint to touch up some areas would also work wonders.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of your stay starting on July 5th. Unfortunately, we only just received this feedback today, August 6th. We take reviews seriously and rely on your inputs, immediate calls to the front desk, and reports from our amazing staff of pool, yard, maintenance and Saturday housekeeping folks to keep Wild Blue Yonder a great experience. We pay attention and try to address all inputs -- For example, last Fall/this Spring we replaced an air conditioner, all upstairs TVs, a dryer, and the pool heater. Just before your stay, a timely heads up by renters led us to replace the dishwasher. We built this year's off season investment list based on feedback people leave in the book on property and via emails, so thanks for giving us feedback. Whether good or bad, we look into all comments. I called a number of folks today including the current guests. A very pleasant policewoman and her husband reported no smells either outside or in the refrigerator. They and others have reported the temperature control being set at MAX when they arrived, thus the coils were starting to freeze and it seemed to be running all the time. However, she felt none of her $1200 of beach groceries were at risk after she put the temp control in the right position. As far as the paint goes, the house was newly painted -- and the Wild Blue -- restored back to really blue, last year. We will examine your paint comment when we wont be interfering with a guests stay later this year. The owner of the pool company went to inspect the pool tonight, and found everything to be in order. For the tub drainage issue, our records show you called maintenance, they responded the day after you wrote this post and fixed the clog. Lastly, the basketball hoop. The hoop had to be removed before your stay due to safety. We take everything from rust on the basketball pole to loose railings and other safety issues very seriously. We chose to remove it from the property -- we simultaneously removed it from the VRBO website write up, however, you had likely already make your promise to the kids for backyard hoops. We have one on order, but hope your children had a chance to use all of the courts in the park in the center of town. We are sorry this experience didn't live up to your expectations. From the positive write-ups since your stay up to my phone call to the guest today when we received this, we believe all of the items you mentioned are no longer an issue. Again, we thank

Vacation

This is a comfortable home and area. We had 3 generations with plenty of space. The Pool man came on Tues & Sat. The trash man comes on Tues too. An unreal sunset on the pier. We even attended Church on Sunday close by and were Blessed. We're coming back!
