About Steve & Liza Taylor

We are a large family who love the beach and our doggies! We have always loved beaches in the panhandle and discovered SGI 7 years ago. Our daughter was married at a house on the bay, and our son popped the question in top of the light house a few years later. My husband has worked for a large home improve company for over 20 years, and I have retired from the insurance industry. I grew up going to Ft. Walton, Destin, and Navarre beaches. My husband grew up in Kentucky and traveled to Panama City a few times. We both enjoy traveling, yet only truly relax when we are just 'chilling' on SGI. We came back year after year, and in 2014 purchased our little piece of paradise.

Steve & Liza Taylor purchased this house in 2014

Why Steve & Liza Taylor chose Gulf Beaches

We looked… and looked... and looked for a property that we: a) could afford, and b) had some nice large trees and scrub oaks. We wanted new construction so we could put our own signature on the home. After two years of looking for a plan, we decided on one that had a loft for the kids, 3 bedrooms on the 1st level, and the main living area on the 2nd level, so we could enjoy the view while awake! We love porch time, and this plan has 2 levels of porches on 3 sides!

From dining to swinging, the porch will be the place to be!

What makes this house unique

This home is my (Liza) personal project. I enjoy interior design & construction, since retirement, I have redesigned a 1928 bungalow and a 1945 cottage in our home town. Now I have set my sights on designing a home that is comfortable both for my family and yours. Our home will have many features designed for the comfort of you, your kids AND your pooches. We will have an outdoor shower for you AND fido. Fido will even have their own towels! Memory foam beds and feather pillows will wrap you in comfort after spending quality time 'round the fire pit with your family! We will have charging stations for all the cell phones and camera batteries. A wine area, and extra coolers for your adult beverages. The kitchen will be equipped for a chef, so bring one if you are not one!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great family house and perfect for dogs as well. It is very welcoming, clean and modern in a private location, yet a short walk from the beach. We loved our time there and definitely plan to come again. Thanks!

Great price for the size and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Legacy Retreat was just what we were looking for on St. George Island. It had plenty of space for our teenage daughters and furry friend. The kitchen was amazing and the porches were a great way to enjoy the outdoors! The location was perfect for beach days and bayside fishing. We were thankful for the TVs in the bedrooms, the kitchen amenities, and the privacy! The house was cozy and beautifully decorated. The golf cart was a nice touch for visits to the beach or local shopping and restaurants. Liza was a great host! There were several problems from the previous renters, but she accommodated us immediately! We are already planning our next trip to stay at Legacy Retreat!

Great house on the island. Very short walk to the beach and to the bay!! Owners have provided everything you need.....we listened to the wireless speaker with our own tunes on the porch in the sun as the morning chill wore off!!! Very relaxing and quiet. Would definitely rent again!!!

Perfect get away for our family of 11

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house & the area (very relaxed and NO TRAFFIC). Some have said that things were really expensive. Our whole family stayed the week for $485 of groceries and we ate/drank like kings! We ate/drank out 2 nights and the those bills were more than our groceries! We did a fishing afternoon through Journeys and Captain Jeremy and had a wonderful time. The rest of the trip, we enjoyed the uncrowded beach and each other's company playing Bocce ball, corn hole, riding bikes, and exploring the island on the golf cart (extra $$). MUCH more relaxing than running around Disney for a week and 1/3 the cost!

The property is very well taken care of and spacious. It easily fit our large family.

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully-decorated and comfortable. It was a very short walk or golf cart ride to the beautiful beaches. Our entire family loved our stay and we would love to come back! The kitchen had everything we needed to make our own meals. Plenty of space to spread out and yet large enough living space that we could all eat together and have family movie nights. Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful home!

We are located at the far west end, away from the traffic of the heavily populated areas of the island. Quiet dirt road that is rarely traveled. Super dark at night to star gaze from the decks. Ahhhhh peace and quiet!
