Formerly '1 Amazing Sunrise', under new ownership and beautifully renovated!

The top level screened-in porch is the perfect place to start your morning and catch a beautiful sunrise over the Gulf of Mexico!

The gourmet kitchen is the perfect place to prepare family meals with stainless steel appliances and plenty of seating at the breakfast bar. Additional seating can be found at the large, family dining table or on the attached screened-in porch to enjoy the Gulf breezes and the incredible view of glistening Gulf waters. The top level also offers a nicely appointed Master Suite with King bed and a private bathroom with a large walk-in shower, as well as a convenient half bath located off the stairwell.

The lower level holds three bedrooms and a second living area with Queen sleeper sofa and a large flat panel TV, a great alternative for families who enjoy a little space!

Not only was this property the best property that we have stayed in on the island, but Forgotten Shores has been the absolute best property management company to deal with. Jamie was so pleasant and professional, and the communication from start to finish was top notch. This was our best stay ever, and we’ve been coming to the island for about 15 years!

The Bare-Foot Octopus property was the best property that we have rented on St. George Island. The home was beautiful (interior and exterior). The décor, furnishings, amenities were excellent. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. On arrival the home was spotless. The property manager was extremely helpful and went the extra mile for us to insure our stay was perfect. We definitely would rent this home again.

This house was everything we needed and more for our family vacation. The house was clean, had plenty of space- we had three families staying together! The pool was great for the kids and the adults. It is a quick walk to the beach, but you do have to cross the busy street in front of the house. We had little ones which made me a little nervous, but navigated it fine.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bare-Foot Octopus! The house fit our three families very well and the pool was shallow enough that the 4-5 year olds could touch with no problem, this was a huge plus! The location was nice and not too far away from all the shops and restaurants. We will definitely be keeping this house in mind when we plan our next trip to SGI!

Beautiful!

We had a great time. This stay was so that our youngest son to be married. We had the whole family gather for the first time in about two years due to our other sons being in the military. The grandkids loved the pool and the house itself was amazing. Every morning the whole family would meet for breakfast on the screened in porch. The layout was perfect the kids used the downstairs living room to play and the adult gathered in either the upstairs or on one of the porches. We enjoyed our time there.

We rented this home for a week in mid-April for two couples and two small children under the age of 6. It was appropriately clean, Rental gear was waiting for us. The location provided easy access to town, the bike paths, and the ocean beach. We had the private pool heated for a fee and were happy we did due to the marginal seasonal temperatures. The inside layout was great. The screened porch provided a great view and a safe place for even little ones. The kitchen was well furnished and the bathrooms were clean and spacious. The island is quiet, the beaches marvelous, and the state park is fantastic. Groceries, meals, and liquor are easy to reach. Jaimie was very helpful, professional, personable and responded quickly to questions. Great stay that our two couples would recommend highly.

The house was spacious, clean, and up-to-date. The walk to the beach was very short, which was great. The 2 living rooms made it very convenient with a larger group. We loved sitting out on the multiple porches they had. Overall, we had a wonderful time!

Our family searched for the perfect getaway location away from the hustle and bustle and St. George Island was everything we dreamed of. Tho home is located within a 2 minute walk to the beach. We spent the days relaxing by the pool, looking for shells on the beach, fishing, etc. We really enjoyed our stay. If you're looking for total relaxation look no further than SGI! The house had everything we needed for our stay. We cooked dinner most nights and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc. The property manager, Jamie, was wonderful and was readily available when we had a couple questions. We loved our stay and hope to visit the island again!

Our family had an amazing time at 1 Amazing Sunrise! The house was setup really well for 2 families to have their own space but still be together. The kids loved the bunk room and having their own separate living room away from the adults and especially loved the swimming pool! Most importantly, the rental was extremely clean which I am very picky about. Jamie, with Forgotten Shores was a dream to work with! She went above and beyond to help when we left a few items behind and everything from inquiring about the rental, booking with Forgotten Shores, calling with random questions about the island, and then helping with our left behind items

We enjoyed our time at this house. It was clean and had a lot of room. The owners and property management were all extremely nice. It was a short walk or bike ride to the beach. Saint George Island is a great alternative to the busy 30A beaches. It is quiet and beautiful!

We combined two families for a total of 10 occupants (5 Adults, 5 Children). The location was great. The layout of the house was good. The house is in need of some updates. Things were worn out or very used. The heated pool was great, but we needed to call for maintenance 3 times while we were there. The Property Manager, Jamie, was very prompt and accommodating. We had issues with the hot water heater and Jamie has the plumbers out right away. The TVs are all very small and when we had the entire group gathered for the Basketball Finals, it was not an enjoyable experience. The large dining table was great for family game night and group dinners.

We had a great and relaxing time.
The high temp averaged 65 degrees and bright sunny skies. We were still able to sun by the pool and the pool stayed quite warm with the pool heat.
