“Happy Ours” is a bright and airy home in a natural setting where you can unwind and spend real, quality time with 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 2 separate living spaces, a private swimming pool and 2 spacious screened-in porches overlooking the generously-sized pool, noble pines and swaying palm trees.
The first floor includes a comfortable King bedroom and (2) Twin bedroom, each with a full bath. These rooms are separated by a cozy living space with room to stretch out and read that much anticipated novel or to spend the evening together watching a family movie on the new 48" flat panel TV. Both bedrooms, as well as the living area, open onto the large, screened-in porch where you can enjoy the Gulf breezes and a mid-day snack overlooking the private pool or cocoon yourself inside the hanging hammock for a restful nap.
The second floor offers another King bedroom with full bath and access to the screened-in porch as well as an open and inviting living area. 2 cozy sofas encourage you to sink into the calming hues of this beautifully furnished home. A 39" mounted flat screen TV can be viewed from any area in the living space, and the fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops and breakfast seating for 2 makes cooking a fun and convenient experience. With a large dining table for 6 that doubles as the perfect game table, the entire family can stay connected as you recount the beach memories you have created, filled with stories of dolphin sightings and the “fish that got away”. Or you may decide to enjoy a card game outside on the screened-in porch or simply sit back and relax amongst the treetops with a bird’s eye view of the neighborhood.
The gated pool area is another 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 on one of the many pool loungers. In addition to central heat & 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 2 separate entrances to the outside. A park-style charcoal grill, new outdoor shower enclosure, fish cleaning station, covered entry and under-house parking with an additional parking area for a boat are a few more of the many amenities you will happily enjoy at "Happy Ours"!
Easily access the beautiful white sand beaches via two community beach boardwalks. Only two short blocks (a 5 minute leisurely stroll along the residential roads) and your toes will be in the sand!
The seclusion of the St. George Plantation is amplified by the lush surrounding vegetation and beautiful landscaping of the property. The advantages of staying inside the St. George Plantation include miles of bike paths (bring your own or rent from one of the island outfitters), walking trails, and access to fishing at Bob Sike’s Cut. The nearby St. George Plantation Clubhouse offers use of a large community swimming pool, tennis courts and a fitness center. You will find yourself at the steps of this beautiful Clubhouse with just a short 5 minute walk or quick bike ride.

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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
This was our first trip to St. George Island but it will not be our last. My husband and I took our grown children down for a week and we all agreed this was one of the best vacations we've had.
We immediately fell in love with the Happy Ours home. Everything was sparkling clean upon arrival, including the pool. The home is beautifully decorated and well stocked from kitchen to bath. We cooked every meal in and found everything we needed from sharp knives to mixing bowls and skillets.
We all had restful nights sleep on the comfortable beds and naps in the hammock and the swing by the pool.
We played games and ate a few meals on the top floor screened in porch and enjoyed the two large fans that kept us comfortable.
The short walk to the beach was easy and the water was perfect while we were there. We even had Dolphins come by three days and put on a show for everybody.
One of our favorite parts was the brand new outdoor shower. We took full advantage of that and thoroughly enjoyed being able to get the sand and salt water off before entering the house.
The Plantation is beautiful. We took our bikes and enjoyed a ten- twelve mile ride each morning.
We had to call Jamie twice for very minor things and she was extremely helpful and had our issues resolved in no time.
This was an excellent vacation and we will certainly be back.

This house wonderful! It was so beautifully decorated and updated. We loved all of the screened porches and having two living rooms. We stayed here with three families and loved how we each had privacy. The private pool was perfect for our young children! We want to stay here again. Jamie, our property manager, was so incredibly helpfully and went above and beyond for us. We can't recommend this beautiful house enough!
Recently returned from another wonderful week on St. George. The house was the best we've stayed in yet...and we've stayed in some nice beachside houses! It's close enough to the beach to hear the waves at night and you can get a glimpse of the ocean from the upper deck. We loved the screened in decks! They made it possible for us to be outside in the evenings without being carried away...the mosquitoes were bad this year! The house is lovely with very nice furnishings. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The pool was larger than many private pools on the island and the water was always crystal clear. My daughter especially enjoyed the hammock on the lower porch, napping there after a day at the beach! We will rent here again!
My family just returned from our stay at this property, we loved it!!! Great location as it's a short walk to beach and very close to the plantation club pool and club house! We have stayed at many beach houses and this one was the best equipped, beautifully decorated, and the best screened porches ever with a peek a boo view if the ocean!!! Next time we are in SGI we will be renting here!! Also Jamie from rental agency was great!!
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.
