This apartment is connected to my main home here in Eastpoint, FL: The Gateway to SGI! It is situated in the center of Franklin County which makes it an ideal spot to visit Apalachicola, St. George Island, or Carrabelle. This property is located 6 miles from the main public beach on SGI, almost a straight shot across the bridge. I am happy to welcome all guests to my own little Taradise on "The Forgotten Coast"!
“Tara's apartment is super clean (and I very rarely rate airbnbs as such) and very well appointed. Tara is responsive, kind and gave us good local tips. Absolutely visit the estuarine reserve, the shell and animal displays are well done and extensive, the staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and the bay overlook is great for viewing water birds. Lynn's seafood looks like it could be a grungy bar but is incredible and very reasonably priced. The ranger station before the beach on St George Island has one of the best Jr Ranger programs we've ever done. The information center by the lighthouse gave us great tips, and thanks to them we walked the tide pools off 6th street and saw great bay life (including dolphins!). We also enjoyed our visit to Apalachicola and the Orman House. This is a wonderful and not too built up section of Florida coast, and a truly excellent family vacation. We would love to return here. Thank you, Tara, for hosting us!”

“We chose Michelle's home because of the central location on The Forgotten Coast and the lovely photos of the house. Perfect choice. Michelle and Clay are wonderful and warm hosts. The house is just as pictured full of decorative touches and a well equipped kitchen (that we used often!) The beds are comfy too. The location was perfect for visiting three nearby state parks and the charming towns. Michelle was so great with communication. We felt she was readily available for any questions or needs, and gave us our own space to go off every day on our adventures. We loved it here!”

“Dan's place is hand-built : original and memorable. Dan himself was a super hospitable host and a knowledgeable guide to all things local. The home was warm and cozy, as well as being unique and charming. Something different, to be treasured on the Forgotten Coast. An A+ Airbnb experience.”
