About the property

4 bedroom 5 bath, incredible views


Baycation is a bay-access and view home with unobstructed access across an unpaved, low traffic road. It is just a few short steps to your own quiet bay beach where you can launch kayaks and canoes, fish, or sunbathe. You can enjoy the panoramic view from the porches of this comfortable and roomy family home, and watch the kids on the bay beach from the comfort of your balcony.

Baycation is a perfect house for families who need handicap access, one of the few on the island.

The beach home features five televisions and a grilling station for the redfish, seabass and trout you'll catch from the bay. Dolphin watching is a favorite pastime from the balconies of Baycation! Restaurants, shops, groceries and the gulf beach are a short walk or bike ride away. You and the kids can be at Aunt Ebby's Ice Cream in about seven minutes via bicycle, or the grocery story, lighthouse and playground in five minutes.

The tiled ground level houses the master bedroom and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen, the dining room, and breakfast bar flow into the living room overlooking the bay. There is a screen porch off the kitchen perfect for picnics. A second living area upstairs opens to a balcony and has a kitchenette and wet bar. 3 bedrooms and 2 more bathrooms complete the upstairs as well as a comfortable back porch to enjoy the temperate St. George Island weather. Outdoor features include a fish cleaning table and an outdoor shower.

The five bathrooms in Baycation means no one shares a bathroom!

This home is the ideal family vacation rental, off the beaten path and quiet. You will dream all year of returning to this island paradise.

Very clean, comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

From the front of this property you can view the most beautiful sunsets on the island. Every night is an amazing sight to see! Within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner was easily contacted when needed, which was minimal. Thanks again for the great family vacation!

July 2017 Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this house! We were a little nervous staying on bay side versus beach side but it was great! The beach was not that far and we had a golf cart, which made traveling back and forth super easy. We loved the set up and space of the house (even though we did think it was odd that 3 of the bathrooms were downstairs with only one bedroom down there). The upstairs was well "insulated" from the noise downstairs, which was great for those who like to sleep and not be an early riser. There are no properties between the house and bay so the view was incredible, especially the sunset every night. The house was also well equipped with everything you could need. We definitely are considering Baycation as our vacation home again for next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you. I thought it was odd to have 3 bathrooms downstairs, but both are situated near exit doors so it cuts down on tracking water and sand through the house!

A great place for an extended family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house fit our needs perfectly. Bedroom and bathroom space worked out to everyone's benefit. Having a handicap accessible bedroom downstairs isn't the norm. "Dolphins in the bay!" was a daily call from the balcony! Amazing that they would come so close to shore. This is the place to go for relaxing and recharging. One suggestion would be to start a guest book where folks could write about experiences.

Wonderful time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family thouroughly enjoyed our time at SGI and this rental. Being right on the beach is so convenient especially with busy children. Great view of the bay, nice bedrooms and *lots* of bathrooms for showers/baths after a day at the beach. Outdoor shower is also a major plus! Only minor negatives were that Internet was hit or miss on both speed and reliability but if your priority at the beach is Internet... well... :)

Overall great time and we will definitely be looking at returning.

Incredible Superbowl Victory Memories reside here

  • 4 of 5

Baycation will always be memorable because my team won the Superbowl while I was there. At first I was panicked because the cable wasn't working, neither the internet. Fixed both and all was good and got even better after our win. As a home base for exploring the forgotten coast Baycation met all our needs, but we're (just 2 adults and one dog) not fancy. Quiet and privacy are critical to me and both were ample. I would have liked a screen door on the water side and more comfortable outside seating. When I asked, the owner provided additional chairs. When the "Northers" blew, as they apparently do in winter, it was pretty cool on the bay side.

I too would have liked a non-skid pan and in spite of all the coffee pots, couldn't make coffee my first morning for lack of a filter. The outfitting was spare and next time I'll remember to bring everything I need. I'm hoping there will be a next time, I really hated to leave!

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic location for my family and I. We had several other friends over at various times during our week at Baycation, and there was always plenty of room for everyone. Multiple balconies to escape the heat of the day, or to watch the sunset. SO many bathrooms! Kitchen was fully stocked, including 3 different coffee makers (2 regular and a Keurig). The house is well maintained and was very clean when we moved in. Plenty of parking available.

Walking distance to the Piggly Wiggly Express, as well as several other stores and restaurants. Across the street from a small bayside beach.

I would definitely stay here again, and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to spend a stress-free week on SGI! Thank you so much, Diane! :)
