NEWLY REMODELED! NEW POOL! This adorable, open-plan cottage, with lovely, sweeping views of the sea and dunes, is just steps from the public beach access to the glistening Gulf! Just cross the street and you are ON THE BEACH!
Located in the popular West Gulf Beaches neighborhood, The Corner at SGI is a rare example of vintage Florida architecture with a newly renovated flair! It was originally a fish camp in 1958, and now is one of the few remaining ground-level homes on the island. And while it retains its charm and character, The Corner at SGI has been beautifully updated with all the modern conveniences and amenities so you can enjoy vintage and comfort along with those views! For those who crave a unique getaway, The Corner at SGI retains the feel of St. George Island when it was truly undiscovered and the “Forgotten Coast.”
A BRAND NEW POOL, outside hot/cold shower, full deck, and bar, grilling and turf area with bar welcomes you after (or before!) those long days at the beach! Play horseshoes, cornhole, or just lounge in the newly renovated front lawn that overlooks the gulf! Up the exterior staircase, there is a wonderful covered deck that offers spectacular views of the sea and dunes. Watch the sun rise and the dolphin’s frolic as you sip your morning coffee on the tall chairs designed to take in the magnificent views of the azure blue sea and sugar sand beaches. Bring breakfast out here and dine on the picnic table! The home offers covered, concrete parking.
The delightful interior of The Corner at SGI features a bright and airy open living/dining/kitchen area with vaulted ceilings, painted white wood paneling and lovely hardwood floors. There are windows or doors on three sides of the room, providing a lovely ambiance, with views of the dunes and sea. Curl up in one of the two full size, comfy couches or an overstuffed chair.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream including a stainless refrigerator and a wrap-around L-shape counter that seats 4, so you can easily serve the crew at mealtime! There’s lots of additional seating for the catch of the day at the custom built river table, that hosts sea shells from our own beach at SGI, that seats an additional 8 or more! This one of a kind table will be the talk of your guests, and a great place to make memories to last a lifetime!
Just off the living area are three charming and bright bedrooms! One has a king bed and ensuite full bath, the second has a king bed with an adjacent bunk (2 twin) sleeping area and shared full bath, and a third bedroom with a bunk bed (2 twin) and another twin bed. There is an additional heated/cooled bedroom in the outside garage area, accessed by only a few steps from the house, with a queen bed and full bath- this bedroom is perfect for those family members who prefer to get away from the noise!
This property is located in the popular West Gulf Beaches neighborhood close to local shops, restaurants, nightlife, the multi-use path connecting the entire Island, St. George State Park and the Lighthouse Museum. The vibrant shopping, arts and culinary scene of Apalachicola is just 20 minutes away by car!
Whether splashing in the surf and searching for shells on the miles and miles of unspoiled sugar sand beaches, exploring the Island by bicycle or paddleboard, or just relaxing on the deck with a good book and a refreshing beverage, The Corner at SGI vacation rental property delivers the best of the Forgotten Coast.

Perfect Cottage at the Beach
We have been renting different properties here on our "family happy island" for 22 years. Love the charm of this cottage , all the old cottage style ( I know they are working on renovations) hope they don't renovate "too much" . Thanks for sharing it with us . Its just 2 of us this time -but there are plenty more beds and space. Only missing a washer/dryer , cable , phone. But for us- those are not an issue -We love it and will definitely look for it again.- Tim K from Clermont Florida, Posted: 09/13/2021
Charming Old Florida Cottage
We have been renting different properties here on our “family happy island” for 22 years. We have only been here 3 days and this one may be my favorite. Love the charm of this cottage ( I know they are renovating - hope not too much ) . Thanks for sharing it with us . I was mistaken about part of my review so I am goi g for an update. 5 stars this is perfect for my husband and I and there are plenty more comfy beds. The office offered to pick up our laundry and do at no charge and there is a phone. We are also learning a ton about smart TVs… and may convert when we get home . We love it and will definitely look for this cottage again- Tim k from Clermont Florida, Posted: 09/14/2021
