About the property

3BR/2.5BA with Gulf Views, Private Pool, Bonus Ground Level Suite

Visit The Stork Nest for your relaxing beach vacation!

A sweeping stairway takes you to the main level of this thoughtfully furnished beach retreat. The large, covered deck space is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee as you watch the sun rise over the Gulf. Ocean views and the soothing sound of the sea lull your senses as you relax into the comfortable outdoor seating.

When you’re not at the beach, you can enjoy a family movie on the large, flat screen TV with DVD player or lounge comfortably with a book or indulge in a board game or puzzle. The restful living room shares a gas fireplace with the dining space that seats up to 6, and the bright and airy kitchen offers additional seating at the breakfast bar. Our well-equipped kitchen has room for multiple cooks and one can easily access the covered deck from here. Panoramic window views of the Gulf greet you in every room of this shared living space.

A split bedroom floor plan allows for the utmost of privacy and relaxation in the evenings. The master bedroom is located just off of the living room and boasts a King-sized four-poster bed with chaise lounger, flat screen TV, a private bathroom and access to a screened porch. The spacious master bath has a vanity space, large walk-in closet, soaker bathtub and separate tiled shower. The screened porch overlooks the driveway and pool area, and is a great spot for an outdoor card game or meal or to watch the colors of the changing sky at sunset.

On the opposite end of the home is a private Queen bedroom with view of the pool area, hall bathroom with combination tub/shower and laundry room with front-loading, full size washer and dryer.

A ground level bonus room offers a studio layout or “mother-in-law suite” with an additional living space and half bath. This area has a private entrance and ground level deck space, there is no interior stairwell connecting this room with the upstairs of the home. Sleeping accommodations include a King sized bed and Queen sleeper sofa. A convenient morning kitchen offers plenty of counter space, mini-fridge, microwave, double sink and coffee maker. The ½ bath is located just off of the kitchen space. This is a great room for teenagers too!

Enjoy your own private swimming pool with ample deck and a hot/cold outdoor shower. A fish cleaning table is available just outside of the pool deck.

Situated on a corner lot, beach access via a community beach boardwalk is just a short and easy stroll from the property. Our home is also located just across from the paved bike path, for easy access to the Island center. We are also located about 3 blocks from the public East Hole access to the Apalachicola Bay. This is a great place to walk the dogs and explore the bayside of the Island.

We look forward to hosting your family during your next beach getaway. Come and see why The Stork Nest delivers!

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this house was great! It is well-stocked and very clean. The pool area is nice and you can see views of the gulf from the kitchen and front porch. The porches are great! We would definitely return and stay in this house. I wish the stairs from the suite were internal but many people would like the separate entrance.

Property was okay; could be maintained for a place that age.

The house was a little dirty, but we didn't want cleaning crews interrupting our vacation time. Also, there was mold on every A/C vent in the house. Might want to get that checked out.

Owner's Response: Hi Rebecca, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We regret that we were unable to correct any insufficiencies during your stay. The house passed inspection with flying colors for your arrival, so we're not sure where the cleaning issues may have been. We welcome your input so we can ensure your approval next time! Regarding some mildew at the a/c vents, this is a normal and expected occurrence after a long, very humid summer. We understand many out of town visitors are not aware of the effects of this amount of humidity, nor of the need for sunscreen (hope you're healing well, btw). But, it happens to some extent in every home in Florida and we clean and/or replaces vents as needed.

Wonderful beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic stay at this beautiful beach home! The house is very well equipped with anything you could want or need including beach supplies. The porches were great for dining, reading, and relaxing. The home's decor, cleanliness, and proximity to the beach were all fantastic. Jaime, the property manager, was always responsive and gave excellent recommendations, perhaps the best being a sunset cruise with Captain Paul during which we saw several dolphins! This was our first visit to St. George Island, and we really enjoyed exploring it and the surrounding area. We will definitely book this property again if we return.

We had the best time during our week. Everything was provided that we could possibly need. The kitchen was well stocked. Only two little things could have made the house better; shade at the pool and a shower for the downstairs bedroom.

Beautiful Beach House One Block From Beach

  • 5 of 5

Extremely well equipped and well maintained very spacious house, only one block from beach, with pool! Also, beautifully decorated and furnished. It easily accommodated our 2 families composed of six but easily could have accommodated the published maximum of 8.
