Featured Florida Home Exchange Property #0820

St. George Island, Florida; Lovely beach home exchange property, is a wonderful island house perfect for relaxed beach living. Access to the white sand beach is accessible via a boardwalk located directly in front of the house.

The four bedrooms are on the first floor as well as two full bathrooms. The open living room, kitchen, dining room and a full bath are on the 2nd or top floor which opens onto a wooden deck with lovely views around. 

Wildlife is abundant - including sea turtles and birds such as the osprey, brown pelicans, gulls, tern, snowy plover, black skimmer and willets nest in the park during the summer. You are also likely to see the American Bald Eagle that also nests on the island. Watch the Dolphins frolic in sea!

Located just off North Florida's Gulf Coast, the 28-mile St. George Island is one of the last inhabited yet unspoiled barrier islands in Florida – and it is a serene and pet-friendly vacation paradise.  

With miles of undeveloped beaches on this barrier island is the perfect setting offering ample opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, canoeing, boating, hiking and nature study. Two natural boat ramps provide access to the bay for small boats. Fish for your dinner that can be caught are flounder, redfish, sea trout, pompano, whiting and Spanish mackerel to name a few. If the fish slipped away, try one of the great seafood restaurants and diners on the island, offering fresh caught oysters that are harvested right out of the waters of the Apalachicola Bay. Savour the freshest of the finest delicacy known to man, the Florida oyster as well as whole variety of fish and seafood.

Few shores offer better opportunities for shelling. The Island has six big picnic shelters equipped with grills, tables and nearby restrooms.

The park offers nine miles of some of the most pristine beaches along the Gulf coast of Florida. Visitors can access four miles of beach along the park's main drive. The last five miles to the East Pass can be accessed only by foot or special permit for four wheel drive vehicles.

The island consistently rates as having one of the top beaches in the U.S., with miles of uncrowded expanses for sunning and shelling, clear Gulf waters for swimming and fishing, and pristine marshes for wildlife viewing, this surely is the perfect family home exchange getaway, for more details on this home swap property click here
