Imagine a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico with miles of beaches, tall dunes with a healthy growth of sea oats, and pristine tracts of marshes and marine reservations. That’s a rather enticing picture of St. George Island (SGI) off the North Florida Gulf Coast. Parts of the 28 mile-long (45 km) island are inhabited by 1,000 people living there permanently. St. George is a remote place in the United States, where you can observe wildlife in their natural habitat and then take a short ride for a souvenir hunt cum shopping spree. You can have your pick of upscale rentals in this peaceful beach community, with the lighthouse towering right above. Check out our list of the best Airbnb vacation rentals on St. George Island, Florida.
A charming studio apartment in Eastpoint, just five minutes from the seafront should serve as a great start off point for your exploration of the Forgotten Coast. St. George Island is known for its pristine beaches, but parts of it are protected dunes and beaches within the bounds of St. George Island State Park. This Airbnb beach getaway is a cozy place with everything you need in order to rest and relax after a day of outdoor exploration.

Aptly named Advantage Point, this Airbnb listing is an airy, light, and lofty vacation home in the Gulf. The house is big enough for eight guests. The new deck is a spacious addition and gives an elevated vantage point of the surroundings. Consider yourself lucky if you’re sleeping in the loft area that comes with a king-size bed and an attached bedroom. All the other rooms are equally stunning and furnished for comfort. From the house, there is a path that takes you directly to the seaside. Surely, you won’t mind walking the 100 steps it takes if your destination is sand and surf.

This private second-floor space sleeps four people and is accessible via a staircase. Ask the host about the beach umbrella and chair that comes with the booking.

You can book a unit in a beachfront condominium complex and spend a few days by the seaside. You’d be happy to know that the condo unit is sporting new flooring, upgraded furniture, and two cozy bedrooms. A home cook would be satisfied with the kitchen amenities.
