About Josie Maurer
My parents and owners Stella and Paul are both Florida State Graduates and met at Florida State. They've been married ever since and decided to build a house on St George Island because they always loved how relaxing and quiet the island is and how good the fishing is on the island too.
Josie Maurer purchased this House in 2014
Why Josie Maurer chose St. George Island
They have fond memories of visiting the island when they were at Florida State back in the 80s. The fishing was always one of the main reasons that pulled us to the island but also because of its immense beauty. We love our place on St George because it is so close to everything and you see some of the best sunsets.

We really enjoyed staying here. It was perfect for us and our college age daughter and her friend. We were able to rent bikes for the week and ride them all over the island. The house was just across the street from the beach and walking distance to restaurants and two grocery stores. It was about a 15 minute drive to the cute town of Apalachicola Bay.
Great location and reasonably priced
We had a great time while staying at this property. The property was located one level back from oceanfront but we were able to easily see the ocean. The separate living areas were unique and the upstairs patio facing the ocean was wonderful. The owner had many of the staples (ex: coffee/creamer, single use shampoos, etc) which was very thoughtful. What was especially nice about the location of the property is that it really is within walking distance of all of the restaurants and shops. Very nice overall experience!
Location, location, location!
In love with this place! This was our 5th year coming down to SGI and this is the place we are most likely to rent again. We were easily able to walk anywhere we wanted to go, and were able to get from the door to the sand in less than a tenth of a mile. Loved the privacy and separate apartment feel. Definitely plan to rent again!
Enjoyed the stay so much!
It is a unique beach house. Fun!!
It was stocked with everything you need for cooking.
Beach towels were there.
Fishing polls, sand toys and much more!
View from the top floor was so, so pretty.
Location is great to be close to town
We had an enjoyable time and the rental had everything we needed. The extras provided were very nice and appreciated.
Wonderful place to stay!
Our entire 10 days here were great!! The place was clean, had all kinds of amenities! Close to all the shopping. We were elated to find that they provided coffee, extra toilet paper, candy, cookies, paper towels, etc., etc., etc.,everything you need but didn't expect to be provided. We were blown away with all of the amenities!!! We can't wait to come back !!!
Welcome to MaryJo's Place! Our beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom house is walking distance to all the main attractions on St George Island. St George Island is the third best beach in the nation with 38 miles of beautiful white sandy beaches. You can walk to the all the restaurants, the SGI Lighthouse Park , shopping and just a street away from the beach.
St George Island has been our favourite place to visit throughout the year as it is a very family orientated environment and our place is unique as the upper and lower level have separate entrances. This is perfect for two couples to have a little get away and relax but also families with children can have a little privacy. The upper level has a lovely deck to soak up the sun and when the fourth of July comes around you can't find a better view of the fireworks on the island. Our place also has a charcoal grill to have a nice cook out in the back yard and an outside shower. Mary Jo's is three buildings away from the lighthouse making it one of the best locations on the island especially for the Chill cook off and the fireworks on the fourth of July.
The fishing on St George Island is amazing on the bay and on the pier which is only a five minute drive away and is available to all to enjoy a full day of fishing, catching anything from trout to red fish. The best time for fishing for red fish is the fall and is still amazing throughout the winter months. Whiting, sheep's-head, mackerel, shark fishing are all very big on the island.
The undeveloped side of the island is also stunning and just near by the island is the historic town of Apalachicola which is famous for their oysters and all the small shops that you can find all kinds of treasures.
Mary Jo's place is our favourite get-away and we hope your time there is just as awesome and relaxing as it is for us!
