It is a short walking distance, 3-4 min for young/middle age, 4-5 min for older.

We provide a handbook so that even the beginning bird watcher can learn about birds. Also watch the planets and stars with our telescope in the evening.
An early morning stroll at the beach is almost a guarantee to see dolphins put on show for you in the Gulf. It's not uncommon to see them swim up as close as 150 feet to the shore, and you will certainly be impressed by their power. The sidewalks in the neighborhood offer a great opportunity to jog, bike, roller blade, or walk. The island is also a great place to catch up on your fishing, either from a boat or the coast. We are located 10-15 minute walk along the beach from the rocky canal at the Northwest end of the island that is known as a prime fishing spot.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Palms! The owners were very responsive and accommodating. We were able to bring our fur babies, our children were able to come and go and the weather was beautiful. There was a telescope on the premises and we enjoyed stargazing along with the beach, fishing, and shopping. We had all of the cooking utensils we needed and enjoyed cooking as well as some local restaurants. We were happy to have some relaxing family time before school starts.
The Palms is a beautiful house in a great location with a short walk to the uncrowded beach. Enough space for our family and kids enjoyed the spiral staircase. We enjoyed the bikes, chairs and wagon from the shed. Thankful we didn't have to lug those from home! Overall the house is really nice, well kept and clean. Ideal location on an amazing island. Thank you-
Best Vacation in Forever.
First time staying in the Plantation. Will not be the last. Quiet, cozy, and secluded.
We loved st George, the location to the beach was nice. The house was not very clean when we got there so we spent most of our Saturday cleaning. That was a little disappointing. Other than that, it was nice.
Beautiful and relaxing
This was a beautiful property that provided us a much needed vacation. The home was beautiful, well kept, clean and stocked with all essentials needed in the kitchen. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had and easy to get in touch with.
We spent the time taking multiple trips to the beach (just a short walk away) or relaxing and playing board games on the top floor overlooking the water. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Great house, great location, great vacation.
This was our third visit to The Palms in the last few years, and we have already made our plans to come back again in October.
We had some concerns coming in December, soon after Hurricane Michael has hit Florida Panhandle. Luckily, St. George Island had minimal damage, and The Palms vacation house weathered it fine. Our reservation was not cancelled, and our trip did happen as planned. The owners have provided us with pictures and relevant updates about the situation on the island around that time.
The floor plan at The Palms works very well for us. It is much better than at many other houses. That is one of the reasons we like coming back to The Palms when we can. We specially like upstairs living/dining areas with nice view of the Gulf. The screen porch on the Bay side of the house is perfect in the evenings. They recently renovated, and now have new vinyl floors on their second floor.
As during our previous visits, the house was clean and ready when we arrived. Their shed outside got few additions, but it basically has bikes, beach chairs and toys that we used during our stay.
Great house, great location, wonderful owners - We love our time at The Palms.
Between good and excellent
Only problem of concern was the fact there was no sleeper sofa as advertised! There were 9 of us and we had counted on that sofa! And yes there was a blow up mattress by it would deflate within an hour or two leaving someone literally on the floor! Not good! The kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. and the beds were comfortable! Didn’t like having to drive to swimming pool! That was a little inconvenient! It was a beautiful area and the pool and beach was great! Loved the privacy! Overall we enjoyed our stay!
Great location, nice house
The house has everything you need for a fun, family vacation. It's clean and comfortable and the owners are responsive. The location is perfect, very close to the beach.
vacation with friends
Perfect spot for a young family
My wife, 2 year old daughter and our dog were traveling to St. George Island for a week of relaxation and beach fun. We spent several hours researching potential beach houses to rent for our vacation and couldn't be happier with our choice. The Palms Retreat property is in a great spot for a reasonable price. Tucked away towards the east end of the island, there is very little traffic, exceptional views (ocean, night-sky, nature), easy access to the beach and a lot of privacy to do your own thing. The house comes stocked with all of the essentials that you need to have a memorable beach vacation, while allowing a young family to still have a sense of "normal / routine" that is needed when traveling with little children and a dog. It is clear that the owners of the property, Greg and Vieta take good care of the property and care about the satisfaction and enjoyment of their guests. When it was time to go, it was hard to leave as we really enjoyed ourselves. We will hopefully return soon.
We really enjoyed our stay!!
Loved riding the bikes the owners provided! Great screened in porch. Easy beach access from house. Really had a great time!
Wonderful beach getaway
The location was amazing with an almost private beach. The house was perfect for our family of 7. The owners were easy to work with and answered questions we had very quickly. We had a wonderful week and look forward to returning again next fall.
Great beach house!
This place was very nice and a great location close to the beach. The wagon they provided was truly a blessing in getting my grandson and all our things to the beach. Thank you for a great vacation!!
The Palms--A Great Choice for a Stay at St. George
The Palms was comfortable and well-stocked with all the essentials. The house has three nicely furnished outside porches, including one screened in porch. All the rooms and the screened-in porch had ceiling fans. The owners provided bicycles--two were brand new--and a wagon to haul our stuff to the beach. They even included a bag a new beach toys for our one-year-old. We were very impressed. We have stayed on St. George many times over the years, but the Palms was definitely the best deal money-wise that we've ever gotten. We highly recommend this house. If you like being fairly close to Sykes' Cut, don't mind a short walk to the beach, and want a reasonably priced house, this is the place to stay!
Perfect summer get-away!
This house was great! 4 bedrooms - with 2 baths down stairs and another big bathroom upstairs!! The architecture is really cool! I loved the location. I was thrilled that there were chairs, umbrellas and a wagon to use - this made life so much easier! Plus you have the beach and two pools!! The kitchen was fully equipped and the telescope was an added bonus! The owners were fabulous to work with! We will return!
