Dream beach vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had the best holiday in the Blue Crab St George island vacation house. I can only recommend the place to anyone, who enjoys beach and water views. You can not get better than this! Florida in December is perfect, warm but also breezy. The dolphins were visiting the coast every day, you can see everything from inside and from the balcony. The house is well furnished and VERY comfortable. We hope to be back! Thank you.

Perfect view, great hostess!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the Blue Crab was everything we had hoped for and more. Relaxing, beautiful, and fun... home away from home feeling. The home is very nice and Trish is the perfect hostess, from the planning stage all the way through the visit - always quickly answered questions. We definitely recommend staying at the Blue Crab.

Beautiful beaches and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We took my mom for her 70th birthday & we all loved it! No one wanted to leave. The beach was beautiful and the town was very quiet and relaxing. The home did not feel "skinny" at all. Very spacious and comfortable inside. We didn't have any problems with the stairs and we have an active 10 month old...just used a some furniture to block the stairs. The home had everything we needed and Tish was very responsive. I would suggest getting groceries before going to the island as there is only one small store for supplies. We are hoping to go back in may when it is warmer! We also brought our two dogs and they had a blast as well:)

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.

United States, FL, Ocala

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!!

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
