St. George Island - Gulf Beaches

Wind down at "On the Half Shell" (formerly known as "One More Day"). On the Half Shell offers 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, open great room, private pool (can be heated for a fee), glorious Gulf views, quick and easy beach access just steps away, and tons of fun for the whole family!

Bells and whistles and creature comforts galore makes On the Half Shell your perfect St. George Island retreat! With the whole house on one living level, there is room to gather and enjoy each other, or retreat to one of the 4 private bedrooms.

The central great room offers an open concept to enjoy each other during your precious vacation time together. The fully equipped kitchen is the center of activity for laughter and togetherness while cooking up the day's catch! The open living area makes late night movie watching on the big flat screen comfortable and relaxing.

The King Master Suite boasts a flat screen TV, walk-in closet, private bath with soaker tub, separate shower, double vanity and water closet. Views of the Gulf are enjoyed from the master suite and deck access is easy through the private access.

The second bedroom, also with King bed, flat screen TV, and private bath with stand up shower, has Gulf views and private access to the deck.

The third bedroom also has a King bed, flat screen TV, and a private bathroom with stand up shower.

Fun for the kids is found in the 4th bedroom with a triple bunk (full on bottom, twin on top) plus a twin pull out trundle beneath, and the 4th bathroom is just outside the bedroom door and common to the great room.

Its all about the outdoors on St. George Island! Plentiful deck furnishings provide the perfect spot to enjoy that morning cup of java or the evening sunsets, all with great views of the Gulf of Mexico. The private pool (can be heated for a fee) with abundant deck furnishings is a refreshing retreat from a day in the sun.

The boardwalk to the beach is about 75 steps from On the Half Shell - a quick and easy walk to the white sands of St. George Island's pristine beaches.

This home accommodates 12.

To assist in your adventure at On the Half Shell, your reservation includes $250 worth of adventure gear rental. Whether your adventure is sitting under an umbrella on the white-sandy beaches, biking, or fishing from a kayak in the Bay, this $250 credit towards your vacation gear rental will ensure you have the adventure you seek. You will be able to shop for bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or even beach carts. No need to find the rental company, your gear will be delivered to your beach house and will be waiting for your arrival.

July 17, 2021 - St. George Island Premier

Very nice home!

by Angie W
Home was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. Loved that the appliances were fairly new and in great working condition. Our favorite spot was the pool and the front porch. Nice furniture on both! The porch furniture was very comfortable and the table was great for outside dining. I do think that there needs to be a handrail for entering and exiting pool. A little difficulty locating the steps at the side and not in center where there is a good size drop! Overall a very nice place!
Hi Angie! Thanks so much for your review. We will run your idea about the steps handrail by the owner. For any potential guest reading this review this pool has a large sun shelf at the shallow end of the pool that has three steps down. You can see a good picture of it on picture #49

February in paradise

We really enjoyed our stay this past February! The house was well maintained and well stocked. We really appreciated the supplies that were in the kitchen that were available for our use. Beds were very comfy! Fantastic location and can’t wait for next year.
