Across the street from the beach. Obstructed Gulf Views (trees, houses) from the second floor. To access the beach we need to use boardwalks, which are installed between every 5-7 houses. So you will need to cross the street in front of the house, turn on the right or left (does not matter), pass 2-4 houses and you are on the boardwalk. It is a short walking distance, 3-4 min for young/middle age, 4-5 min for older.

We have miles of paved bike path. Bob Sykes Cut (One Of The Best Fishing spots) is minutes away from our house. We are a 24/7 gated community, which hosts two large swimming pools.

Our guests have easy access to the pools and tennis courts provided by our community. We have several bikes, beach chairs, toys and a wagon in our storage. You are welcome to use them when you stay in our house. The natural beauty that surrounds The Palms Retreat offers all sorts of entertainment: Enjoy watching the birds during the day with binoculars. Also watch the planets and stars with our telescope in the evening.

An early morning stroll at the beach is almost a guarantee to see dolphins put on show for you in the Gulf. It's not uncommon to see them swim up as close as 150 feet to the shore, and you will certainly be impressed by their power. The sidewalks in the neighborhood offer a great opportunity to jog, bike, roller blade, or walk. The island is also a great place to catch up on your fishing, either from a boat or the coast. We are located 10-15 minute walk along the beach from the rocky canal at the Northwest end of the island that is known as a prime fishing spot.

About Greg Smith
Why this property?
Our family fall in love with St George Island after a few visits this magical place. In 2000 we bought our The Palms Retreat. In the beginning we signed with a local Island company to manage our house. However shortly we decided to manage our house ourselves because we wanted to give house and our guests personal attention and care which only owner can provide. It is important for us that our guests will experience the excitement we got every time we visit The Island.
We advertise our house on all major sites like VRBO, HomeAway, FlipKey, etc. However these sites charge substantial fee to travelers and us, owners. If you found this site and decided to book directly with us you will get the best rate. No travelers fee and our rate is better because we pass our saving to you.
We are visiting our house regularly. We also have a trusted team of maintenance technicians and housekeepers who are taking care of our house when it needs. We are serving all our appliances systematically and according their manuals because we want to minimize its unexpected failures. We are proud to report that out respond time on any telephone call from our guests is usually less than 1 hour.
We are catering to customers who demand the personal attention that comes with booking through a flexible company like ours. We enjoyed interacting with our guests.
* We are the owners with a personal, hands on management style.
* Attention to detail and a commitment to excellence in customer service are the cornerstones of our business.
* We want our guests to have the best vacation rental experience on the St George Island so they will return year after year.
* We keep our guests informed of the exciting events occurring in the area.
We hope you enjoy your tour of our website. We look forward to providing you with the best value on the beach today!
