About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Surrounded by a natural setting, “Happy Ours” is a bright and airy home where you can unwind and relax with your family and friends.

Located within the St. George Plantation, a 24-hour gated community that has preserved the natural beauty of the barrier island, a peaceful and relaxing stay awaits you and your family. Nestled on a private corner lot, this comfortable 3BR/3BA home offers two separate living spaces and two spacious screened-in porches overlooking the private and generously-sized pool. The seclusion of the St. George Plantation is enhanced by the surrounding vegetation and beautiful landscaping of the property.

The first floor includes two bedrooms separated by a comfortable living space with a 48” flat screen TV. The king bedroom has a private full bath and the second bedroom has two twin beds and a full bath. Both bedrooms, as well as the living area, open onto the large, screened-in porch which overlooks the pool. Chairs, a chaise lounge and hammock chair offer a quiet space to lounge and enjoy the Gulf breeze.

The second floor offers another king bedroom with full bath, access to the screened-in porch as well as the open and inviting living area. Comfortably furnished with ample seating, the living space has a 39” full - motion wall mounted TV to maximize viewing. The fully furnished kitchen with granite counter top and breakfast seating for two is located just off the living area (please note, no ice maker available). The large dining table for six doubles as a gathering space for meal time and perfect game table. The upper level screened porch, accessible from dining and living area, has an outdoor table for six as well as comfortable seating to enjoy morning coffee or five o’clock cocktails. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the neighborhood and the lush vegetation as you look out over the tall pines and palm trees.

In addition to central heat and air conditioning, this lovely home offers multiple ceiling fans (including the porches) for warm-weather comfort. The entry foyer houses a washer and dryer as well as two separate entrances to the outside. Other amenities at “Happy Ours” include a park-style charcoal grill, outdoor shower enclosure, fish cleaning station, covered entry and under-house parking, with additional parking for a boat.

The gated pool area is a wonderful place to spend a warm, sunny afternoon. A shaded cabana area with large porch swing provides a respite from the heat or you can sunbathe and relax poolside.

The beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico can be easily accessed via two community beach boardwalks. A five minute leisurely stroll along the residential roads and two short blocks will find your toes in the sand!

The advantages of staying inside the St. George Plantation include miles of bike paths, walking trails, access to fishing at Bob Sike’s Cut, and being minutes from the serene Gulf beach. There is also a kayak launch at Nick’s Hole to access Apalachicola Bay. Bikes and kayaks may be rented from one of the island outfitters by the day or week and are a wonderful way to explore the beautiful surroundings.

The nearby St. George Plantation clubhouse offers a community lap pool, fitness center, and tennis court. Plantation logo wear is available at the clubhouse office and staff available to assist M-F 9-5. You will find yourself at the steps of this beautiful clubhouse with just a short five minute walk or quick bike ride; one block east of Denise Ct. Additional amenities within the Plantation include two pickle ball courts, a beautifully designed full size pool at Resort Village, and a second tennis court.

About Forgotten Shores Properties

Forgotten Shores Property Management Group, LLC is available to respond to your phone calls and inquiries. We assist our homeowners in management of their beautiful St. George Island properties and are available to guests throughout their stay. We are pleased to offer 'Happy Ours' on behalf of our homeowners. Read below and get to know the owners of this beautiful Plantation property and why they chose to build their dream home on St. George Island.

Why Forgotten Shores Properties chose Plantation

A word from our homeowners: We have stayed in many areas of Florida and SGI was the only place that checked off all of our must haves: no high rises, few crowds, unspoiled beaches, excellent fishing and a vibrant community. The Plantation gave us all of that AND the privacy and natural beauty we desired.

What makes this house unique

Our home is two short blocks (easy walking distance) from 2 beach access boardwalks, the community pool, work-out room, and tennis courts. Even better; hop on your bike and enjoy miles of paved paths as you explore this beautiful area. Our home is situated on a corner lot which offers privacy and is surrounded by beautiful pines and palms. You can often hear the surf and the porches are the perfect spot to enjoy the Gulf breeze.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was our first trip to SGI and we loved every minute of our stay at Happy Ours. The home is very clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable, and easily accommodates 6 adults with 2 separate living spaces and a full bathroom for each of the 3 bedrooms. The screened in porches are perfect for morning coffee or 5 o’clock cocktails and overlook the wooded corner lot. It felt like being in a tree house! We could hear the gulf and a short, level walk put you on the beach in less than 5 minutes. The Plantation clubhouse and fitness center is one street over, walk- able in minutes or a quick hop on the bike. We rented bikes and highly recommend; the Plantation has miles of bike paths and is a great activity. Some of us even rode to the lighthouse, 5 miles one way, all bike path. Large, private pool was always sparkling and there were plenty of chairs and chaises. The Plantation is a gated community that feels like a nature preserve. There are no street lights so at night the stars light up the sky. It is quiet and safe, the beaches clean and deserted during our stay. We enjoyed surf casting, beach walks and being surrounded by natural beauty. We will return to SGI and Happy Ours!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Happy Ours. The house was clean and exactly as described. There was plenty of space for our whole family (2 adults, 4 children) - and there is great living space for everyone to relax and enjoy. The pool is fantastic. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk and is quiet and beautiful. We were treated to dolphin sitings almost every day. We had a great time biking on the many bike paths on the island. We would definitely stay at Happy Ours again.

Our Annual Family Vacation SGI

  • 5 of 5

Tropical Storm Cindy visiting at the beginning 3 days not a good week choice , but with the screen in porches and pool we were able to make the best of our time , I would like to suggest when renting this home remember to bring mosquito spray just in case they make an appearance during your visit you will be glad you did . " Our House " is laid out nicely , furnishings modern and beach like ( very comfy beds ) We cooked in 4 nights and found everything needed in the kitchen . Everyone loved the pool and the walk to the beach was a short 2 blocks :) Very quiet and private area we really enjoyed our vacation and really appreciated the care and concern Jamie showed us ! Thanks homeowners we would love to return again .

Week of June 11-18,2017

  • 3 of 5

Let me say first, house was decorated very well and only problems that we encountered was that kitchen was on third level of house and the refrigerator icemaker did not work This house is rented every week and icemaker needs to be fixed or replaced. That was a big problem for us. There were ice trays but they did not have any ice in them when we arrived. We realized that the house had stairs, however, there was no mention that the kitchen was on the top level. This caused problems for my husband. Also, the screen in porches were totally mixed in the fact that the picnic table should have been on the third level along with the table. The walk to the beach was not bad. Hot water issue was difficult although the note was helpful.

Will we be back to St. George. Absolutely but not to this house.

Owner's Response: Gail, thank you for joining us at Happy Ours this summer! We were so happy to accommodate you and hope you all made many great memories together. I'm sorry the layout proved to be difficult for you, but I would like to make note that we have provided a written layout of our home in our property description, as well as to notate that there is no ice maker for the refrigerator as listed in our "amenities" section. We have a dining table on the top deck as well as a picnic table on the lower deck, as this seems to appeal to most groups. We're very glad to know you will return to SGI whether this be at Happy Ours or another property. Thanks again!

Happy Ours has it all!

  • 5 of 5

Happy Ours has it all! We loved the privacy of the corner lot and being minutes away down the paved street to the beach access. Both access points seem to be some of the shortest in the Plantation.

We loved the new outdoor shower; so convenient for everyone to use after being at the beach or pool. The sparkling pool has to be one of the largest and there was plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture.

Comfortable beds and well-stocked kitchen; very important for our family. Two large screened-in porches offer a perfect setting for coffee or cocktails; one even has a hammock!

Super clean and well-maintained inside and out. The privacy and short distance to beach and clubhouse fitness room make Happy Ours a top choice. With 2 separate living spaces, it is perfect for a family or 2 couples.

Bring your bikes or rent on the island as the Plantation has miles of paved paths. We would not hesitate to return or recommend this property to other vacationers.

Very Nice Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

Happy Our's is a very nice beach home ... only a relatively short walk to the beach. The beautiful native plants and trees plus its location make for a private feel. The property has been very well maintained and is extremely well furnished with only one major exception. Even though there are two separate dens and three bedrooms, there is really only one TV. Another tiny 13" TV has been provided but there's no way to adjust the color so you're stuck with a green hued tiny picture. You will also need to bring at least one large kitchen knife with you if you plan on cooking while on vacation. The screened in decks and private pool all have very comfortable furniture ... and one deck has a great hammock!

Owner's Response: Hi Gene! Please don't hesitate to call us if there is any issue, nothing is considered too small. We were able to troubleshoot the green hue on the TV as a component cable that had been pulled out. Easy fix ; ) Since your review, our homeowners have upgraded the 2 TVs in living spaces. We hope you get to come back!

St. George Island is a beautiful and pristine 22-mile long barrier island with white sandy beaches. The East end of the Island is home to Dr. Julian G. Bruce State Park which was voted the best state park in Florida and in 2012, St. George Island beaches was voted one of the top 10 beaches in the country! The Island is void of high-rise complexes and fast food restaurants, no shopping malls within an hour and a half drive! Don't forget to visit the nearby historic town of Apalachicola with an eclectic mix of restaurants, galleries and boutique shopping. The nearest airports are Tallahassee Regional and Northwest Florida Beaches International (Panama City).
