The Ultimate Relaxing Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all...convenience to traditional beach activities on St George Island, great shopping and dining in Appalachacola, and water sports and wildlife around the house. Hiking in the state park across the street, swimming in the surf on St George, kayaking around the bay...there wasn't one bit of it we didn't enjoy. We tried some of everything on our first trip, and headed home relaxed and restored. The home is wonderfully furnished and Nikola is responsive to any questions or needs. Our family will definitely stay here again and look forward to exploring the area further. Thanks for a great vacation!

Spacious! Clean! Great location! Beach? Yes! Outdoor dining? Yes! Nature? YES!

  • 5 of 5

We were two adult couples on a mini vacation. We had more than enough room to do what we wanted! The washer and dryer are a bonus! Great location that feels like you are away from it all yet only a bike ride away from town. The beach felt secluded and private and absolutely beauitful...natural! You feel like a local and not a tourist.

If you are looking to relax and enjoy nature. I highly recommend staying here. The owner we worked with (Nikola) was awesome! Went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. We will definitely be going back!

Peaceful beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family has started a yearly tradition of a beach trip the week before Thanksgiving. This is our third in a row. This is the first to this area of Florida and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The area is secluded and peaceful. We have two boys 2 and 6 and they enjoyed the large sandy beach. The water was shallow with the tide out and they enjoyed walking in the water, finding drift wood "swords", chasing shore birds and viewing the many hermit crabs.

We hiked the Tate's Hell trail which was nice, we were able to get to the trail head by walking across the street. We also kayaked some in the bay.

The house is nice and well kept. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen area was well furnished, we were able to cook most of our meals and enjoy the quiet ambiance. Sunrises and sunsets are georgeous. We even heard dolphins talking in the bay at night right from the porch.

Nice place, recommend for a quiet beach experience, good find for the nature lover

The bestest place ever to have a beach wedding...

  • 5 of 5

The house was bright and cozy, very spacious, the beach was beautiful. The most beautiful sunsets I have seen in a long time and I live in Florida. We had a small wedding there that took place, the owner had us a bottle of Champaign and it was a sweet gesture. We could not had picked out a more beautiful place, it has everything you would ever need. The back porch was a cozy spot for early morning coffee.

I just wanted to thank Nicola for the hospitality, she was wonderful and even though we only live an hour away, we totally have plans to make this our summer vacation spot....

The beach is northing but full of white sand, the water was great the fish was catching, great size trout's.....sea shells everywhere. The neighbors are very friendly if you ever need anything, (which you wont, it has everything) There is so much to say about this home, all I can say is this is just a wonderful piece of Paradise to stay at. It has all the necessities you will ever need, it has kayaks as well. Everything... so Nicola, thank you for making my special day even more wonderful, it was the best Beach Wedding you can ever imagine of, it was the best!

Thank you,
