Welcome to your one-of-a-kind vacation estate located at the coveted Bob Sikes Cut at the West end of St. George Island Plantation. No other vacation rental home on the island, or surrounding areas, offers all the private amenities of Hip-Nautic. Not only does Hip-Nautic have it's own private screened in pool (can be heated for an additional fee), but has the only private tennis court on the island. The lush landscaping with dozens of mature palms and other native trees provide privacy to enjoy all this oasis has to offer. Just behind the tennis court is a path to the boardwalk leading to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, just steps to the jetty at Bob Sikes Cut for abundant surf fishing. Hip-Nautic is just across the street from the Schooner Landing boat launch (for small lightweight crafts) into the deep waters of Bob Sikes Cut.
With five bedrooms, each with its own private bath and porch access, bring the family and maybe even some tennis-playing friends.
Upon entering the ground level of Hip-Nautic, you will find a convenient bedroom on the East side with two sets of bunk beds (4 twin beds), private bath, and sliding glass doors leading to the winding boardwalk to the pool and tennis court.
The wide tiled staircase leads you upstairs to the first elevated level featuring three more bedrooms. On this level, you will find the large king master suite, located on the West end facing Bob Sikes Cut. The master bathroom is complete with a large jetted tub, separate shower and double vanity. The master suite has two sets of sliding glass doors to the large well furnished porch facing the Cut. Another king bedroom with private bath is on the East end with sliding glass doors to a quiet nook porch overlooking the pool. A twin bedroom (2 twin beds) with private bath is also located on the East end, with sliding glass doors to nook porch overlooking the pool. The laundry room is located on this floor, as well.
The top floor features a large open great room with plenty of gathering space. The well appointed large kitchen and dining room is the perfect setting to cook up and serve the days catch. Gather the whole crew for fun and laughs on the large, well furnished porch with views of the Gulf and Bob Sikes Cut. The fifth bedroom is on this floor on the East end, with king bed, private bath and sliding doors to the porch overlooking the pool. A half bath is also conveniently located on this floor.
A park style charcoal grill and large gas grill are provided, as well as an outdoor shower and fish cleaning sink. There is plenty of parking on the concrete pad under the house, as well as in the brick paver driveway.
Bed sizes: 3 king, 6 twin
*This home does not have access to the Plantation amenities program, so there is no entry to the community pool, fitness center or tennis courts. BUT WHO NEEDS THEM? Hip-Nautic offers the ONLY private tennis court in a vacation rental property on the island! And private screened pool that can be heated for an additional fee.
Please note Hip-Nautic is a Sunday turnover home. Please make your reservation accordingly. Thank you.
