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.

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.

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.
