A large living area has plenty of seating and even a table on which to play games or jigsaw puzzles in the evening! Pour a glass of wine or brew your favorite cup of java with the Keurig, open the doors and take in the view and the sea breeze whistling through the trees on the large, wrap around deck. Island Girl will give you that re-charge you need! There are no busy streets to cross, in fact you don't even cross one to get to the beach! Fur Babies are welcome for an extra fee! We also offer a bath linen package that gives you double the towels for your stay! Just select the “bath linen package” and we will have them for your arrival! We also can arrange mid stay cleaning just ask us!
St. George Island Plantation is a large gated community on the western end of the island. It features 24 hour security, nature and bike trails, a kayak launch, and a small gym located on Magnolia within the Clubhouse. Multiple "viewing" spots are located throughout the community to visit, both on Apalachicola Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
There are 2 large resort style swimming pools, one located just 3 minutes down the bike path, and multiple tennis courts. There's even a Pickle ball court and horseshoes. Join the water aerobics class at 9 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. At the very end of the Plantation, enjoy the best fishing on the island at the deep water canal that is "cut" through the island. If the white sand beach is what you crave, you can be there in just 300 steps down the shady path just behind the house. A fish cleaning sink, charcoal grill, smoker and even an enclosed outdoor shower complete the downstairs area.
Beds: 2 queen size beds

* St. George Island is a remote barrier island. Although we enjoy every amenity, there can be disruptions in services. Please note that we can not guarantee Internet, television, telephone or electricity, (if you change any cable or internet configuration, you may forfeit your security deposit). We will guarantee that we will make every effort to have the service restored as soon as possible. Many of the technicians however are located miles away and can take some time to arrive. There are several restaurants both on the Island and in nearby Apalachicola that offer free wi-fi!
*As one of The Plantations' goals is to retain as much of a natural vegetative state as possible, you will encounter a variety of insects, reptiles and wildlife. Insects could include mosquitos, roaches, ants, scorpions, etc. Reptiles could include lizards and a variety of snakes, some poisonous. Wildlife could include mice, raccoons, opossums, and coyotes. We do have regular pest control, but can not guarantee that you won't encounter any of the above....Get the full listing »
