A beautiful Italian Style Mediterranean villa featuring panoramic beach views from a grand two-story great room. 1st To The Beach is located directly on the gulf, just feet away from the water. We believe this home to be the finest constructed home in Sunset Beach, a private/gated community of just 20 beachfront homes. You will see the painstaking workmanship when you arrive: arched-top and tinted hurricane proof windows, hand-painted ceiling in the great room, imported Italian tile, an ornate wrought iron staircase, original art, and many other professional designed elements which add to the ambiance.

Additional Location Information

1st To The Beach is located on the East End of the island. I own two beachfront homes on the East End because I believe it to be superior to other parts of the island. St George Island is separated into three distinct sections- East End/State Park, Gulf Beaches, and Plantation. I have stayed at each of these parts and can tell you with complete certainty, that for me, the East End is the best. The least desirable is the Gulf Beaches area which is in the center of the island and is the most populated. It offers convenience to stores, but if you are looking for privacy, this would not be my first choice. If you are NOT renting a property and are just driving down for the day, you can park in a public lot or park along Gorrie Drive and just walk onto the beach. So, you will find that Gulf Beaches is the most crowded part of the island. Furthermore, the lot sizes for the houses built in this area are much smaller so there is less privacy.

The Plantation is a very attractive section of the island, but has its many drawbacks. First, the beaches are more crowded in the Plantation versus the East End. Second, due to the Plantation's proximity to Bob Syke's Cut, water from the Apalachicola Bay enters the gulf so you will find that the water will not be quite as clear as the East End. Third, the Plantation is a gated community. This, at first sounds like a positive. But wait until the time you wish to check into your beach rental only to have to sit in a long line of cars at the gate. Having a friend visit you becomes a hassle since each guest has to be registered in advance. Furthermore, crime on St. George Island is almost unheard of, the need for a gate to keep people out is a bit of a farce. One just needs to have their home far enough away from the Gulf Beaches area, where all the stores are located & public beach access, to enjoy complete privacy. Sunset Beach has a gated entrance but it is unmanned and is easily entered by entering a code- there is never a line of cars. Fourth, since the property owners of the Plantation pay a hefty fee to the homeowner's association, you will find that the rental prices are generally higher in the Plantation. Fifth, the Plantation has more natural vegetation than the rest of the island. In some ways this could be viewed as an advantage. For my money, I see it as a disadvantage. When I am on vacation, I want to be able to sit in the living room or the porch and veer into the horizon of the gulf and see the water, sun, dolphins, etc, I do not want my view to be blocked by trees or shrubs.
