Sun Treader is a perfectly lovely beachside vacation
house. "Beachside" is defined as "across the street from the
beach." This street is a very quiet cul de sac and the view is
still great. It is located in the elegant plantation on St. George
Island. One young renter described it thus: "We had a very good
time staying at Sun Treader. We have been coming to St. George
Island for many years, and we like this house the most. My mom also
loves the kitchen. My Dad, and all the family, love the view. Every
day my parents sit out on the screened porches and read. Sun
Treader is cheerful!"
The Boardwalk to the beach is just a short walk away (less than 1
minute for most!) and crowds are usually non-existent! Dolphins
will likely keep you company though. Sun Treader is set back from
the street with a "natural" lot that creates a haven for various
birds and is ultimately peaceful and a temporary home to an
itinerant Owl. The large wraparound porch (partially screened) is a
wonderful place to sit or to dine. Great view of the Gulf from the
porches, kitchen, living room and a panoramic view from the loft
(great for dolphin viewing).
Master bedroom has king bed, TV and sliding glass doors to a
screened porch. 2nd bedroom has a queen bed with sliding glass
doors to another screened porch. 3rd bedroom has a trundle bed.
Huge loft has a queen sleeper sofa, fireplace, library and chaise
Other guest comments:
"We had a wonderful time. My engineer sons . . . thought the house
design and siting on the lot were perfect. . . I especially enjoyed
your southside porch and loft as well as the paperbacks."
"Wonderful house: love the natural vegetation, birds, view."
"St. George is a magical place!"
"Sun Treader is the #1 house on the Plantation. My Mom loved the
screened in porch."
"Love this house. I want to live here!"
"We don't want to leave! Your house is truly our home when we're
here! It's so safe and quiet!"
About the Owner
Activity and Interests
The beach! Often underpopulated if not secluded. Fishing at "The
Cut" is just down the road. Surf fishing on the beach. Rent bikes.
Great shelling, great sun, great surf and dolphins, dolphins,
dolphins. If the fishing doesn't provide you with adequate meals,
the seafood dining on the Island is excellent. Or try great
restaurants in Apalachicola or Eastpoint. Don't miss the bar (and
lobby and cats) at the old, old historic Gibson Inn in Apalach.
Chef Eddies is another gem of a restaurant.
But the best activity is sitting on the porch watching the ocean and
doing absolutely nothing!
