Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Gulf Beaches - A Turtle's Dream

Beachfront 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath - Gulf Views Galore!

A Turtle's Dream is as close to the Gulf of Mexico's water’s edge as you can get! Any closer and you'll get wet. The large beach facing deck has covered and uncovered areas, with ample furnishings for all, to either enjoy your morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over the Gulf, read a book, sunbathe, or watch the dolphins swim. The white sandy beaches of St. George Island are just steps away. When you can manage to steal your gaze away from the stunning view of the Gulf, gather inside this warm and inviting home featuring elegant woodwork throughout, glowing heart pine floors, and cypress tongue and groove walls. The great room with lovely beamed ceilings and built in bookshelves around a gas fireplace is the central gathering place for meals and catching up with family and friends. The well appointed kitchen has everything you could possibly need to prepare the day's catch or your family's favorite recipes. New stainless steel appliances, a stand alone ice maker and lots of extras make this kitchen a joy to be in. An extra refrigerator is also provided in the storage room under the house. Enjoy family tournaments at the pool table alongside a wall of glass doors showing off the amazing Gulf views. Or retreat to the quiet respite of one of four bedrooms. Two bedrooms with king size beds face the beach with sliding glass doors to the deck and stunning Gulf views, as well as private baths with double vanities. The third bedroom also has a king size bed and a private bath, and the fourth bathroom is convenient for both the fourth bedroom featuring a triple bunk bed, and the great room. All beds invite you for a restful night's sleep or lazy afternoon nap with new Simmons Beautyrest mattresses. A pack-n-play is available to make things a little easier for parents.

Downstairs under the house is a large concrete parking pad with fish cleaning sink, picnic table and outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

Flat screen televisions and blu-ray players are in each bedroom and in the living room.

Three years running

  • 5 of 5

We just booked our 2017 week ... the third in what is becoming an annual tradition. We stay with friends and family with kids ... lots of room. Big deck with sun and shade. Great beaches everywhere. Kids loved running down to the beach, jumping on a kayak or paddle board, and chasing dolphins just offshore. House has everything.

We loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in St. George Island and renting a house for our family vacation. It exceeded our expectations! I loved the fact that you step out and at the end of the walkway you are on the beach. The 4 bedrooms 4 bath were all on the same level which made it easy for our mother-in-law. The owners had a bottle of wine, cheese and crackers waiting on us when we walked in. They even provided everything you would need to have fun on the beach. We even got to see baby turtles making their way to the ocean, dolphins, crabs and a couple of sting rays. We highly recommend A Turtles Dream! Can't wait to come back!

Amazing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay at A Turtle's Dream! The layout of the home is exceptional (my husband and I and our daughters took the bedrooms on one side, which provided some space for the "child-free" people, who took the bedrooms on the other side), the home was well cared for, and the house was well stocked with kitchen utensils/pots, games, and even some beach chairs and other beach gear. The property manager was quick to respond to a problem we had with the dishwasher, and in general we had a very high impression of the management. We ate all our meals at the table on the deck, which is spacious and offers spectacular views. We saw dolphins every day, and the water is teeming with life! We held live crabs, sand dollars, starfish, and I even saw a sea turtle swim past me! I can't imagine a better beach house, both in terms of the house itself and in terms of the beach it sits on. We will definitely be returning here!

Even Better than Expected

  • 5 of 5

A Turtle's Dream was all that we could have hoped for and more! We stayed with two other couples and four children. There was plenty of room for everyone. The main living space is so spacious, the pictures do not do it justice. And to walk out onto the deck and practically be on the beach was exactly what we were hoping for. St. George Island was even better than expected. We rode bikes, paddle boarded, fished, and enjoyed some incredible days in the ocean. The pizza place was great! Just be aware that everyone on the island agrees so expect a wait. Also make sure you visit the state park. It is really beautiful! The house exceeded our expectations in every way. It was so clean. I was worried since it was pet friendly, but my concern was completely unfounded. And the kitchen is fully stocked with more cookware and appliances than you will probably need. If you have a dog, don't hesitate to bring it. We brought our 6 month old labradoodle and she LOVED the beach! St. George Island is our new favorite beach destination. We can't wait to come back.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Very close to the beach, wonderful location and a step up from your typical rental on the Island. Our family has rented at St. George many years - now we have a new favorite! A sea turtle actually nested right behind the house while we were there!
