About

Get into a zen state of mind at Buddha Beach!

A family vacation on St. George Island is all about fun, sun and relaxation. At Buddha Beach, you’ll find all this and more!

The open living/dining/kitchen is bright, airy and accommodating. A large, spacious and fully stocked kitchen with ample counter space makes preparing and cooking meals a breeze. Eat in at the breakfast bar and dining room table, or enjoy a meal outdoors in the sun at the picnic table downstairs. A convenient laundry room is located just past the kitchen, with a full size washer and dryer. You will also find an ample supply of beach towels for your use (bonus!). The living room offers additional sleeping with a Queen size sleeper sofa and a gathering place for the family with a flat screen TV, DVD player and CD stereo. Sliding glass doors open onto a covered and furnished deck overlooking the private swimming pool and out towards the Gulf of Mexico.

Turning West from the living room is a small office space with printer set up, for those of you who still have to work on vacation! A large master suite with King bed can be found just past the office area. This bedroom has plenty of room for young children who need to be closer to parents or guardians, and we are happy to provide a pack-n-play for those in need. The private bathroom has a bathtub/shower.

Turning East from the living room is a convenient hall bathroom with double sinks and large, tiled shower. This bathroom is shared with the main living space and East bedroom. The East bedroom is large enough to hold 2 twin beds and 1 Queen bed, a great space for teenagers or even a small family.

Upstairs is a private Queen bedroom and private bathroom with large, tiled shower. This room is away from the hustle and bustle and is best suited for those who sleep in! Just past the Queen bedroom is another Master suite. This master has a King sized bed and private bathroom with double sinks and tiled shower. The comfortable King bed looks out toward the Gulf of Mexico and has the added enjoyment of a large, private balcony that overlooks the pool. This is a great place to watch the sun rise over the Gulf or enjoy a quiet afternoon of sunbathing.

The convenience of under-house concrete parking and covered entry make unloading and loading an easy task. As you round the corner from the front entry, you will find a large fish cleaning station with sink and gas grill. An exterior door, also accessible from the foyer, will open to a room filled with fun activities to include a ping pong table, corn hole, beach and pool gear as well as bicycles for the group! There’s no better way to explore the Island than the bike path which extends east and west from our location. Average bicycle rentals can cost you up to $40 per week, per bicycle. We happily provide bicycles at no additional charge for your convenience and enjoyment!

The large, fenced pool area is gated from the stairwell and carport for added safety but please be mindful to keep an eye on the little ones. The carport entry leads you into a covered deck space with a hot/cold enclosed shower and tiki bar area where you can relax in the shade as you watch over the kids swimming in the private pool. For colder months, pool heat is available for an additional $400 + tax fee. We also allow up to 2 medium size dogs with advance permission for a $200 + tax fee.

Beach access is an easy stroll along paved roads to a community beach boardwalk, about a 4-5 minute walk away. Not only is the Gulf just a short walk or bike ride away, you may also enjoy visiting the Apalachicola Bay via the East Hole public bay access 3 blocks East.

Beds: 2 Kings, 2 Queens, 2 Twins, 1 Queen sleeper sofa

Our home requires a 7-night minimum stay during all seasons.

Home was very accommodating during our week stay. It had everything you would need to stay comfortably. The furniture and decor is very nice. The outdoors area is extremely nice and well landscaped. We had no issues with the rental, only the pool servicing company that lacks professionalism and courtesy.

This is our 3rd time staying here at Buddha Beach and we are never disappointed! It’s our favorite place to stay on SGI! With lots of beach gear, bikes and an awesome pool, all you need to do is bring yourself and maybe a few extra rolls of toilet paper! We can’t wait for year 4!

We had a nice stay at Buddha Beach after minor issues were resolved. Upon arrival the home was not cooling and the top floor did not have power. The property management company quickly responded but it did not change the fact that it was HOT in JULY. The home was nicely furnished and the pool was wonderful. We did have to ask for the pool light to be repaired during our stay. The home is a decent walk to the beach.

We had the best week staying at Buddha Beach! The location was perfect, only a short walk to the Beach access ramp. The pool and lower deck area was fabulous, we enjoyed grilling and hanging out here at night. Don’t worry about bringing a beach chair, they had 10 plus chairs to choose from. They also had lots of Beach toys, games and umbrellas to use during your stay. Everything you need for a beach vacation, they had! The only thing I would recommend is to bring extra paper towels, toilet paper and laundry detergent. They supplied a little bit of each but depending on your group you may need to bring extra. Overall, we had a wonderful trip! We can’t wait to come back and visit again next year.

We loved this rental. We were a group of 4 couples. This house has everything you need for a great getaway. It rained virtually nonstop for our week, and this house and it’s amenities helped rescue a beachless beach vacation. All the kitchen tools you can imagine, games for the group, super comfy beds and furniture, wonderful outdoor areas both under roof and on the deck made for a wonderful trip. I recommend a rainy day on the back porch with a good book any day. We loved the ocean and bay views we had from this home as well.We enjoyed the bicycles and would have really loved the beach gear (and left a few more things to add to your gear.) this house has all the upgrades and feels
like home- not a rental. The fruit trees around the pool just added to our total delight of this home. We will be back- rain or shine!

Rental process was seamless, the house was beautiful. Had a well stocked kitchen but the stove had a burner out and the other burners didn't seem to want to work either. Washer kept repeating cycles which in turn took all the hot water meaning cold showers for everyone. And we could never seem to figure out the HVAC so we froze upstairs and were too warm downstairs. And I understand the need for tile, but would suggest something more slip resistant when you have a pool. My poor brother spanked himself for his bday on the wet tile floor. A new stove top, washer and dryer would go a long way. Other than that it was a great house with great features.

This house is absolutely fantastic. It literally has everything you need from beach towels, bikes, to a very well stocked kitchen! The walk to the beach is not bad, we brought a golf cart so it was easy running back and forth. My only complaint would be the refrigerator, it took 24 hrs to get cold again and some of our food spoiled. The beds are comfortable, pool is great, overall it’s a really practical house. The property manager is also very attentive!

Buddha Beach was a luxurious get-away, just a couple of blocks from the beach and in a quiet part of the Island. The bedrooms and bathrooms were roomy and welcoming; the kitchen is full stocked. On cloudy days, we enjoyed the pool. The management company was very attentive esp as the storm approached. No damage from the storm as far as we could tell. Would love to return.

We have a lot of experience with vacation rentals, and this was definitely one of the best. We had two young families and the set-up with two masters, a big room for the older kids, and a smaller room for the youngest in the pack and play was perfect. This is the most well equipped home we've stayed in from the bikes to endless beach gear to beach towels to emergency supplies. The ONLY nit picks I have on the house are that if you want to sleep in, that will not happen because there are no black-out shades so the rooms get pretty bright as soon as the sun comes up and the dryer takes a couple cycles to dry. Even saying that, we would absolutely stay here again. Comfortable beds, everything you need, nice furniture out by the pool, and a short walk or golf cart ride (ideal w/ smaller kids and all your essential beach junque) to the beach access.

Buddha Beach house is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy family. House was clean and well kept. Kitchen was fully stocked. The pool was a great place to relax and take a break from the ocean.

This is a lovely house which is perfect for two families as there are two masters. (Master up w another BR w ensuite bath; master down w another BR w two queens and a twin [I think]). Plenty of covered deck space and uncovered deck w ocean view on top level. This house also features a bay view from the front. Well appointed house, very comfortable and the owner actually includes BIKES for you to use. There's also a gas grill which I think you can use and a bar at the pool. Would rent this house again.

Also, the property manager Jamie is awesome. We have rented from her before and will rent from her again as she handles everything and is conscientious and super helpful. Example: there was a storm and the internet went out and we had some work we had to do, so she brought us a hotspot until the internet came back on. Trust me -- most rental agencies are just trying to make you go away and don't really care about problems, but Jamie does and she is fantastic!

The house we chose for our reunion, Buddha Beach was more beautiful in person than in the photos! And in the photos it was stunning, to say the least. What we enjoyed the most was everything! The sunny decks, the inviting pool, the proximity to the beach and bay and shopping. There was plenty of space to stretch out and relax in the house. Everyone found their beds and bath comfy and well appointed as was the kitchen, washer, dryer and availability of beach towels, chairs etc. We all enjoy cooking and gathering around the large table for meals. The kitchen was well equipped and had plenty for us to move around without bumping into each other. Any questions we had for the Jamie were quickly addressed. I highly recommend Forgotten Shores and would go back to Buddha Beach in a heart beat!!!

My family came from Ohio to celebrate my daughter's graduation and we all loved Buddha Beach and would highly recommend it. It was not right on the beach but close enough to walk. Jamie Polous at Forgotten Shores was very professional helping us find what we were looking for.
