Lulu on the porch at JP's beach house.
Last Friday we drove our convertible to the beach. We wanted a little road trip - and it is only 80 miles from our house to one of the nicest beaches in the world.
Our buddy JP Brown owns a very nice beach house two streets back from the beach. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It is up on stilts and easily has survived hurricane floods. It has a large deck facing the ocean. It is an easy walk to a fantastic beach.
The beach there is perfect. We had it virtually to ourselves - except for two other families. The sand is super white and fluffy. The water is very clear - so clear you can see lots of fish .
The temperature was 92 on our visit and the water was 86 degrees. We spent a lot of time in the warm water. We took our beach tent because the high sun was pretty hot.
To get to Saint George Island you skirt the coast west on Highway 98. Just before you get to Apalachicola - you turn left and travel 5 miles on a free bridge to the island.
JP is asking $220,000 for the beach home. It is well kept and would make a perfect full time home. If we wanted to live full time at the beach - I would buy it.
JP's Home is on stilts to avoid storm damage.
The underside of the home is lined with plywood to protect the plumbing. You could easily park cars under there or create a party patio.
