About Hannah McKinney

My family has been vacationing on St. George Island since 1967. We would get invited to go to the island by friend's and I thought it was boring because there was nothing to do but pick up shells,fish,swim and walk on the beach! I grew up and went away to college but my family would meet in Tallahassee and all go to the island each year. I got married (on the island) and moved to the West coast in 1983 but traveled every year to meet my extended family on the island. Three of our children are grown but all four love the island and know how much it means to me and our family.

My husband and I semi-retired in 2005 and began building our dream house. I had the privilege of designing it so it is extra special to me.

Hannah McKinney purchased this house in 2006

Why Hannah McKinney chose Gulf Beaches

As an adult, I had always dreamed about having a place on the island. When we found the lot;we fell in love instantly! We drove over to the mainland the same day to make a bid on it.

What makes this house unique

Our house is family friendly with something for everyone to enjoy. The stairs are on a 3 inch rise for persons who have difficulty climbing stairs. Open concept with two separate master suites. The front porch is 16x72 and has an unobstructed view of the bay. At night,the lights from the SGI Bridge are fantastic! Our house is kid friendly with games,puzzles,XBOX and high chair.

Our favorite vacation home 😍

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year in this home on St George. It's on the bay with an unobstructed view of the bay and the bridge. We spend hours in the rocking chairs on the wide porch. The house has 4 large bedrooms and 3 full baths. Plenty of room for our family. We play board games on the big table and usually cook a couple of meals while we are there. We bring our fire stick for the living room tv and watch Netflix movies. We rent a golf cart from journeys and ride it everywhere. It's only three short blocks from the beach. Close enough to walk or ride a bike. We put up our umbrella and chairs in the morning and come and go all day. Paddys is one of our favorite places to eat especially on trivia night. The BarBQue pit is good and the place across the bridge and to the right has all you can eat crab legs on Thursday and Saturday. We took a sunset boat trip through Journeys this year and a fun airboat ride last year. One of the best things is the 4th of July parade on the island. Everyone rides their golf carts, boat trailers and trucks all decked out in red white and blue with tons of water and water guns. The spectators do the same and it is a giant water fight. Loads of fun for everyone. We've never had any problems with the house. Dana is easy to reach and always responds quickly. We love Sea U Later!

Great home for the holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed spending Christmas and New Years at Sea U Later with our family! There was plenty of space for 6 adults and 1 grandchild and it worked very well for all of us. The view of the bay and bridge from the front porch is absolutely beautiful and the beach is always beautiful ANYTIME! Thanks for sharing your home!

The house was perfect for our family. Clean, nice and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our adult children and grandchildren in the house. It worked very well for us. We had 8 adults and 3 kids with us. We were close to the beach and had great views of the bay right from the balcony. I was very pleased with our stay. I highly recommend the beaches in the state park just down a bit. They were absolutely beautiful. The whole island was great.

Nice Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 7 adults and canines enjoyed this trip very much. The house location was great with the nearby beach on the bay. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck and doing a whole lot of nothing. Golf cart rental or bicycle are the ways to get around the island. We are already planning a return trip.

We rented the house for our honeymoon. The location and the view was great but the beach was very full of debris. The yard was very unkempt. The hot water was terrible...by the time the Jacuzzi tub was halfway full you'd run out of hot water. The appliances were outdated. The grill didn't work even after we spent the money to get a new propane tank. The TV's only worked in the living room and smaller master. The one in the twin room only got one channel. The ones in the main master & middle room weren't even hooked up. The neighbors behind us had a bunch of huge parrots that squawked loudly at all hours. I was willing to look past all of that until the owner refused to give our deposit back claiming damages to items that we didn't even use. We will rent elsewhere next time.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you have decided that you didn't enjoy your stay. There was never any complaints during your stay. The reasons for not releasing your deposit have been documented with pictures. All tvs and appliances are in working order. We are sorry you were inconvenienced by the neighbors birds but, we have no control over them. A new park style charcoal grill has been ordered and will be installed soon. We wish you well,

There is a bald Eagle nest 1/4 mile from our house and you can see the Eagle fly to his nest from our front porch. The beaches have the brightest white sand and there is hardly any other people close by even during the summer season. Bike riding is a favorite activity because there is a bike path that goes around half the island. No car necessary if you have or rent a golf cart.
