Welcome to Blue Crab - Your Vacation Home on the Island

Welcome to Blue Crab - Your vacation home on the island. New to VRBO, this lovely home has it all! Centrally located, you can walk to shops, restaurants, and the SGI Lighthouse Park. Relax and unwind while watching the dolphins. Vaulted ceilings with beautiful tile flooring complement the spacious great room / dining / kitchen. Blue Crab has been tastefully decorated with your comfort in mind. A well-stocked kitchen makes meals a snap.

Oversized master bedroom has a private deck overlooking the sand and waves. Queen bedroom with ensuite bath allows for privacy and separation. Cool loft boasts twin beds perfect for children or adults.

Outside living is easy with two large decks that offer both sun and shade. Deck gates keep children and pups safe. Charcoal grill is ready for your fresh catch. And, there’s also an outdoor shower (hot and cold water) for rinsing off after a day on the beach. Bring your basketball as we are only 6 homes from the court and Lighthouse playground.

Truly one of the best beachfront values on the island. Repeat Renter Discount always given. Also look at our other island property – Blue Wave VRBO #353253.

Perfect for our family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Crab SO MUCH! It was our first trip to St. George and her place was perfect for us. The location is amazing and we had everything we needed at the house. Tish was great to communicate with. We will definitely try to stay here again.

Our favorite beach

  • 5 of 5

Just came back to Ocala, FL after spending 2 weeks at Blue Crab on St. George Island. Have stayed at an island cottage before on St. George, but this was our first visit to Blue Crab and it was one of the newer, larger cottages and what a difference a few feet makes. Plus, it is so close to the lighthouse park (where we walk our dog before going to the beach), and grocery and restaurants. Thank you to owner, Tish, for making our visit the best!!

Location !!!! Dolphins !!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to the beach many times and SGI many times .... but I have never been able to walk to the TIKI hut of the Blue Parrot and walk back with the sand between my toes the entire time. Our dogs even accompanied us on several occasions....

We could walk to anything we wanted to do on the island. We took our bikes and rode everywhere also.

BJs have the BEST sandwiches EVER!!! The Island Dog is Awesome !!! While we were there a house way down the road caught on fire and the guys lost everything except what they had on the beach. The guy at the Island Dog got them some clothes and things they needed ..... Good Hearts !!! They also told us some local places to go for oysters and such...

This house has a lot of steps .... so if you are not in shape it might be tough! But if you are wanting a great dog friendly house with dog gates on the balconies included, right in the middle of everything on the island .... THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU !!!

DID I MENTION THE DOLPHINS ???? THERE WERE DOLPHINS EVERYWHERE !!! ALL DAY LONG !!!! FLIPPING UP OUT OF THE WATER .... IT LOOKED LIKE THEY WERE PUTTING ON A SHOW ALL DAY EVERY DAY !!!!

Peacuful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First off, I want to say thank you to Tish and her family for providing us with a very comfortable, relaxing vacation rental home! This was our first experience staying in one, and we will never go back to using a hotel again. The house is beautifully decorated and has everything possible you could need. I even found a muffin baking tin to make muffins in one morning :) There were even some beach toys and boogie boards out on the main bedroom balcony :) Our family had the BEST time on our vacation. The house is just steps away from the beach and has the most beautiful views of the island! The beach itself was very quiet, not crowded and very family friendly. We did run into a couple of issues while staying at the house, but Tish was VERY responsive with responding to my messages. She is the sweetest, and will make sure that if there is a problem, it will get fixed right away! I truly can say we had the most relaxing vacation ever! We have decided that St. George Island is our new getaway and will definitely be coming back to stay at Blue Crab. Thank you again to Tish and her family for opening up this home to us!

Location

Nearest Golf
15 Miles
St James Bay
Car: recommended

SGI is so unique because of its unspoiled beauty - be sure to visit the state park (great for hunting sand dollars)!

Low density means no overcrowded beaches.

Appalachicola is 15 minutes away - historic homes, great restaurants and fun beach shopping
