Wonderful family vacation spot!

We had a great stay! The weather was fantastic and the view from the house is top notch. So wonderful to have a quiet beach to enjoy! SGI is surely a hidden gem--we hope to return in the future!

Couldn’t have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We have been on a few Florida vacations now, and we’ve finally found a place we will return to as soon as we can. This house is wonderful. There is nothing about the Blue Crab house that I would change if I could. The layout of the house is perfect. Every morning I made breakfast in the kitchen while watching dolphins outside the huge windows. We spent all day on the not-crowded beaches (during spring break!) 20 seconds from the deck. The house has great outdoor living space and our dogs loved picking their favorite deck. The gates are thoughtfully laid out so we could let our dogs be free and not worry about them running away.

At night we slept with the windows open so we could hear the waves. The lack of street lights on the island means that the stars look amazing! There were only two of us and 2 dogs, but this house would sleep 3-4 couples very comfortably.

St. George is a quiet, not touristy island that has beautiful beaches and friendly locals. It has just enough shops without being crowded. We never left a 2 block radius from our house in 3 days and had as much fresh coffee, food, and fish as we could handle. I would recommend bringing some groceries from home to cut down on costs a little.

Tish was a wonderful host. She gave us all the info we needed without being overwhelming. We’ll be back soon!

Well appointed and convenient to shopping and dining.

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely consider returning to this property. Everything went smoothly with our visit. You can sit in the living area or on the deck and enjoy an unobstructed view of the ocean. We enjoyed watching dolphins swimming just off shore and the fishing vessels trolling in the distance. The house is tastefully decorated and the kitchen adequately equipped. We stayed for several days and our vehicle stayed parked except for one excursion to shop and eat at Apalachicola and once to drive down to the State Park on the eastern side of the island. You can walk to almost everything from this property. From donuts at Webber’s in the morning to lunch at the Blue Parrot to supper at the Beach Pit BBQ, all are within walking distance to this site. If you want to cook while at SGI, the Piggly Wiggly market is a couple of blocks away and 2 vendors bring trailers loaded with fresh seafood to the island daily. A new addition to the island is Dr. Myers, an island pub with good food and live music most evenings. SGI is one of the most pet friendly vacation destinations we have ever experienced. Almost every restaurant has seating available for you and your doggy. Servers usually bring your pet a bowl of fresh water and at Dr. Myers they even brought our Boston a large dog biscuit which she promptly devoured. We’ll be back to SGI!

Nearest Golf
15 Miles
St James Bay
Car: recommended

SGI is so unique because of its unspoiled beauty - be sure to visit the state park (great for hunting sand dollars)!

Low density means no overcrowded beaches.

Appalachicola is 15 minutes away - historic homes, great restaurants and fun beach shopping
