Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Gulf Beaches - Studio Sea

4 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Pool, Sun Deck With An Ocean View

Just a short walk to the beach, Studio Sea is a newly renovated four bedroom Florida beach cottage. Two of the bedrooms are on the main level. A large third bedroom, fourth bedroom and bath are on the lower level with a separate entrance, making it perfect for two families or couples. Cool off in the new pool. View the gulf from the sun deck or sit on the porch with family and friends. Let the morning greet you in the sunny living area which includes open kitchen, dining and living spaces.

Like much of St. George Island, Studio Sea is pet-friendly. Food and water dishes are provided for your four-legged friend. We will gladly refund your pet fee if your pet does not do any damage.

During the day take advantage of all the available activities on St. George Island or shop in Apalachicola. In 2013 Dr. Beach rated the beaches of St. George Island as third best in the United States. In the evening have dinner at one of the excellent restaurants on the island or in Apalachicola where you will find some of the best seafood in the United States.

Bring your bike or rent one on the island. Studio Sea is across the street from the island bike path. The cottage is just a short bike ride to shops, markets, restaurants and fresh seafood.

Great fishing is available from the beach, the pier, or at the beautiful state park at the east end of the Island.

About David and Brenda Mann

My husband and I first visited St. George Island as a result of a search for a pet-friendly vacation destination. We fell in love with the island and have been coming here every year since. We've enjoyed sharing it with the rest of our family.

David and Brenda Mann purchased this cottage in 2013

Why David and Brenda Mann chose Florida

We bought this property so that we would have a place to call our own. Because of its location, we saw the potential in this property. We have lovingly and completely renovated the entire property.

What makes this cottage unique

We especially liked the sunny living area and the short walk to the beach. At the same time, the cottage offers a pleasant shady porch to enjoy.

Perfect cottage for a beach get away. We enjoyed the pool area. Loved the upper deck to watch sun rise, sun set and moon rise. The short walk to the beach was great. Relaxing area, we all had a nice first visit to St. George Island. Looking forward to returning in the future. Thanks for allowing pets with no limit on size. Our Sage loved the ocean. He also enjoyed going from the second deck up to the third. We appreciate the opportunity y'all gave us to start our life together as a blended family. Thank you for sharing paradise with us.

Great location. Close to beach. Family friendly.

  • 4 of 5

Overall my family had a wonderful stay at the studio sea. We had 3 adults and 3 children. The home was clean, had most everything we needed and the owners were very accommodating. A couple minutes walk to the uncrowded beach or clean private fenced in pool right down stairs was great. We would have loved a gas grill but did fine without. We didn't know that the lower level was only connected to the upper level by outdoor stairway. This would work great with teenagers wanting their own private space or 2 families sharing one house. It worked out fine for us even though it would have been easier to be connected. Overall a great experience on the island.

Can't wait to go back!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were supposed to check in the day before Hurricane Hermine made landfall. The owners were very good to keep us updated on the conditions on the Island and we were refunded for the nights we couldn't stay. They offered all they could to make sure we still had an enjoyable vacation. The property manager lives right across the street and he was very friendly and accommodating. I think this home is the best deal on the island! We loved the private pool and short walk to the beach. The home sleeps 10 comfortably and the living/kitchen/dining space is so open that you dont feel at all crowded. My nephew had a blast playing all the board games that were provided! My family and I had a wonderful time and we hope to stay at this property again next year!

On negative : the AC in the downstairs back bedroom does not blow out cold air....it was cool at best and it was very warm the first night. We bought a box fan the next day and it helped considerably.

Just what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation my family and I took in quite some time! The home had everything we needed and more! The little one loved being in walking distance to the beach and having her OWN POOL!!!! I think the pool was by far her favorite part! Well furnished and great layout! The only "complaint" (which really isn't one)comes from my husband who LOVES to cook... he said that a bigger stove would be nice but we made what we had work and made some delicious food! This was our first experience in St. George Island and wow oh wow was it a great one! We will definitely be back. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!

3.5 Stars. Close to beach. The pool was perfect. Cute and comfy house. Needed to a better cleaning.

  • 4 of 5

We liked this house. Great price! The pool and proximity to beach were awesome! Loved the floors upstairs. The decor was simple and perfect. We all slept comfortably and had enough room to relax.

Negatives would be the stove/oven need an upgrade. The house wasn't very clean. It needed a good mopping. The electrical by the pool didn't work. There was a plug under the ac unit and the ac kept dripping water on it. The pool light worked sometimes.

Overall a great house and we would come back.
