About Nikki Spirakis

We have been coming to St. George Island for about 5 years and just love it! We have two dogs that enjoy coming with us to island and we get to spend time with our friends and family and just relax! It's such an amazing place!

Nikki Spirakis purchased this house in 2016

Why Nikki Spirakis chose East End

We fell in love with this property as soon as we walked in! It was so warm and inviting and just felt like home! It has been completely remodeled and the previous owner had the same love of sea turtles that I do, so we loved the decorations too! We hope you will love it as well!

What makes this house unique

This house is so close to the water! It has amazing views and every time we've visited we've seen dolphins from the front deck. Just spectacular.

Fantastic family vacation home to get away from the frenzy of life!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed relaxing on the beach just steps from our front door, on the deck in the evenings as we gawked at star-studded skies, and in our beds each night as the crashing waves serenaded us to sleep. We desperately needed this vacation from the hustle and bustle of busy work lives. The kids loved building sandcastles, catching crabs, finding shells, braving the cool water, and playing the many games stocked in the house. We even spent a day geocaching in the park, discovering nooks and crannies of the island we may never otherwise see. We enjoyed spending an afternoon in Apalachicola with lunch at the Owl Cafe, drinks at the Ice House and Oyster City Brewery, and of course oysters at Hole in the Wall. We enjoyed sunsets and cocktails at The Blue Parrot. We all said this was the best vacation since our honeymoons, and we are looking forward to our next visit to make more family memories and reconnect with what matters most! Thanks Great EsKaype for being just the escape we needed!

Wonderful house. Beach is close. Both are beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well supplied, comfortable, and beautiful. There are at least three pieces of art we all admired the whole week. The living room ceiling fan light fixture does not work making the dinning area too dark. The beach is close and an easy walk. Plenty of parking. The house has everything you could need. The owner is very responsive. Check in and check out were a breeze. Stay here and remember to check out the stain glass turtle several times a day to see how it changes with different light.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house! I apologize for the ceiling fan light not working! We are replacing it this weekend when we are there - so next time you stay at our house - you'll have plenty of light. Thanks again!

Quiet and peaceful with beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we were impressed with the size of the house and the beautiful view. Clean, comfortable and decorated very tastefully. Very easy beach access was a great plus!

Owner was very friendly and quick to respond to any questions we had. Even though we had a small problem with air conditioning for part of the stay, they made sure that we were more than compensated for the unavoidable breakdown. Would recommend staying here, as will again hopefully in the near future. (With our family pet next time.) 😊

From the moment we walked in the door, this beach house felt cozy and warm. Nikki was helpful and responsive with requests. Aside from needing lightbulbs, the place was perfect!

The owners were very responsive before, during, and after our trip. The price is the best you can get for a nice house next to the beach. We have already booked our week for next summer! 😎?
