Pet-Friendly, Sheltered, Very Spacious Living Area, Near Beach and Town!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 18, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Ideally located, our home features both privacy and the convenience to all the island's amenities. Relax in the secluded enclosure of oak, pine and palm, yet still be able bike or walk 3 short blocks to the grocery, restaurants and shops. When it's time for a swim, just slip out your backyard down your private path and shortcut toward the beach which is only a 3-minute walk away.

This uniquely designed, multi-level home is extremely spacious, with a large open living area featuring a hardwood floor, a dramatic vaulted ceiling, skylights, a 46'' HDTV with cable/Blu-ray and comfortable furniture, incl. queen sleeper. If you are cooking in the kitchen, you can still be part of the conversation and fun, as the kitchen is open to the living and dining area. Enjoy your meals indoors or out, as the tiled dining room opens onto a large 40' X 12' sun-drenched, partially covered deck equipped for ultimate relaxation and sun worshiping.

If it gets too hot on the deck, simply take a break and relax in the palm tree shaded hammock in the tree grove next to the bbq pit.

Up three steps from the living area are two spacious bedrooms (queen beds) with 32' HDTVs/DVDs and shared bathroom in the hallway. Up the flight of stairs is the light-filled master bedroom (king mattress) and bath. Have a glass of wine on your private deck with its view of the Gulf, then keep your sliding screened door open and let the sound of the ocean lull you to sleep.

The very private outdoor hot-and-cold shower is great after a day at the beach, or just for cooling off.

This home has a large circular drive with landscaped walkway to the front door. Covered parking for one car is available directly under the house. Make sure you bring Rover to this pet friendly home. He'll enjoy relaxing in his 10' x 10' covered outdoor pen after a run on the beach. (Note: We require a $300 refundable security deposit to encourage following common-sense pet etiquette.)

Recent Review

About the Owner

My brother-in-law (a contractor) and my husband and I (grunt labor) bought and renovated this home ourselves. Our family is scattered and we wanted to make a home where we can all get together and relax in the off-season. Life is short, right? The name 'Aargh House' -- yes, ok, beach, ships, pirates -- derived from the fact that during renovation we must have each said 'aargh' about 100 times a day as we searched high and low for misplaced tools, dripped paint and hammered our thumbs. Soon aargh turned into Aargh House which kept us laughing so the name stuck. Aargh House is a very very very fine house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house was very nice,we enjoyed our stay. Beach was a bit windy but still warm enough to swim. Having the dog pen outside was nice for the times that we didn’t want to take them with us. The kids had forgotten how many stars you can see at night without city lights to interfere. Thanks for the opportunity!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful and the location was perfect. Very clean. Very well equipped, quiet and close to everything. Easy walk or bike ride to beach, restaurants, shopping etc. Solid food and very well trained staff at Blue Parrot where we ate several meals. Rented kayaks, paddleboards and bikes from Jolly Roger. Pretty good equipment that was discounted more with each additional item. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The grill could use an upgrade but that was our only (very minor) gripe. Great fishing! The walking path to the beach ends at a stretch of beach that was oddly and wonderfully almost empty. Crowds to the left and right each day but almost nobody on that beautiful part of the beach including Memorial Day weekend. Aargh house was great.

What a great home and just as described if not better. Very spacious, clean and well equipped. As we like to cook-in, the large kitchen was wonderful and had everything we needed including sharp knives! The game closet was a nice extra and we enjoyed playing bocci in the backyard. Our four-legged friend was very comfortable as well. Loved the view from the upper deck. The outdoor shower and washer/dryer were also much appreciated.
The short walk to the beach was lovely and came out on a nice quiet section where we enjoyed swimming and paddle boarding (thanks to Jolly Roger rentals) and taking long walks with our dog.
Our favorite restaurant was Eddy Teach's for their live music and great oysters. Be sure to catch the 1/2 price oyster hour from 3:30-4:30. The IGA surprisingly had a large assortment of groceries available for a small local store.
We definitely recommend this home to future travelers.

Relaxing week for active family

  • 5 of 5
Great spring break week with my wife, college daughter and her 2 friends and 2 high school sons. 100 yd walk from beach but had great view of beach from our elevated master bedroom deck. Rode bikes, body surfed, "SUPped", visited light house, maritime museum, Estuary Reserve, and had great meals in and out. Host owners VERY hospitable and accomodating. Would recommend this house and SGI if you want to be active and off the beaten path.

A little known gem

  • 5 of 5
Wow, just spent 6 weeks in this lovely home. We have rented several vacation homes & this is on top of the list. Very clean, lots of wonderful daylight, very well furnished & a great kitchen. SGI is peaceful & the people are so friendly. Don't miss the Estuary Research facility at the bridge on the mainland. Great food at Harry A's & Blue Parrot on the island. The Sea Oats Gallery has great gifts. Loved the place & hope to return.

Location

From the Owner

We had rented houses in St. George a few years in a row and loved the area. So one day we just started looking to buy and this house was a stunning find.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Tallahassee at 70 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Harry A's at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Gulf of Mexico at 200 Metres

Deep-sea fishing; bay fishing; rent bikes, scooters, golf carts; shelling, oystering on the bay; dolphin watching; a gorgeous State Park... all are part of the St. George experience! Four wheel drive vehicles are permitted beyond the paved roads in the State Park (special permit required) for an adventure through beautiful white sand dunes to great fishing spots. Climb to the top of the historic lighthouse for a panoramic view of the Gulf and Appalachicola Bay. Golf at St James Bay-approx 25 to 30 minutes east on Hwy 98 or Port St. Joe Country Club.

Only 8 miles away, Apalachicola is a great day trip. In 2008, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Apalachicola a Distinctive Destination: architecture, beautiful antebellum homes, a true working waterfront are some of the reasons for this award. Only 2 other Florida cities share this distinction, Key West and Fernandina Beach. Shop, eat, and tour this historic district of old Florida.

Amenities

From the Owner

This is an architecturally beautiful home, with vaulted ceilings and skylights on a large lot. Technically, it's a corner lot, but the 'road' that is supposed to lead all the way to the beach is partially grown over and so acts as our second driveway. We carved a private path through it for a quicker walk to the beach.
