Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Alligator Point - White Pelican

3BR/2BA Beachfront Home

White Pelican: 3 BR, 2 BA home recently (2015) renovated and immaculately maintained (new pics coming soon). Sits on huge Gulf front gulf-to-bay lot for water view from every window of the house. Huge deck and screen porch on the gulf, overlooking beautiful sand dunes and private beach. Front deck overlooks Alligator Bay and natural forest area. Beds for 7, but can sleep up to 10 (extra charge for more than 7 people.) Air conditioned, dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, DVD, VCR, gas grill, fully furnished. High speed wireless internet and Cable TV provided.

Amenities: Hardwood floors throughout, two queen beds, bunk bed with double and a single; recently remodeled; Soapstone kitchen counters and new second bath; microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, fully furnished kitchen, ceiling fans, cable TV and VCR, gas grill; 16 foot wide glass doors look out on huge screen porch, private beach.

Activities: Very quiet area. No theme parks, roller coasters, kiddie parks, etc. Shopping within 30-45 minutes; trips to Carrabelle, Wakulla, Apalachicola, East Point, Tallahassee are popular. Deep sea fishing boats leave from several local marinas. Wonderful restaurants within 15 minutes drive. Fishing from surf in front of the house this year yielded Spanish mackerel, flounder, whiting, and Redfish.

Area: Alligator Point is a narrow spit of land about 4 miles long. Most maps don't list it. Years ago, the area was called 'Lighthouse Point' before it was developed. Our house is at the most narrow part, thus the gulf-to-bay location. Our back yard is the Gulf of Mexico; our front yard is Alligator Bay. Nice easy sand path through the dunes to the beach....the bay is accessible in the front of the house and there is actually a nice little white sand beach there too.

Highway 98 is the main highway that runs along the coast. Alligator Drive (Highway 370) cuts down to the peninsula just west of the big bridge over Ochlocknee Bay. Light shopping is available within 15 minutes of the house.

Rentals typically 7 day minimum but some exceptions and run from Sunday to Sunday unless other arrangements are made.

We have finally found our favorite beach house!

  • 5 of 5

I write this as I sit out on the beach, enjoying the sound of our grandson's giggles. This house is so close to the beach, it's an easy walk down for playtime!

I cannot say enough about the beauty and quality of this home. It was obvious from the moment we walked in, this is not your average rental home.

The furnishing are perfect. Beachy, but not cheesy. :-)

The owners we very easy to work with and answered any questions we had.

Hoping to visit this house again in the future.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at the White Pelican and it was just what we were looking for. The house has been well cared for and was stocked with plenty of dishes and things you need in the kitchen. We had plenty of room for everyone. The beach had very few people and was perfect for our small children. Early in the mornings you could see dolphins from the deck! The deck and screened in porch is where we spent most of our time. The owners are very nice and made planning our trip easy!

Exactly what I wanted in Beach Gulf front vacation

  • 5 of 5

I wanted an "off the beaten path", quiet, away from tourist traffic, let me soak up the sun and surf vacation that I could enjoy with my family. The White Pelican is exactly that and more. The house decor was simple, casual, and beautiful. There was plenty of room for our family of five. Shells were plentiful. The sunsets were gorgeous and the stars at night were bright from the back deck. We enjoyed meals and games on the screened porch. I regularly left the kitchen door open and enjoyed the sound of the surf while cooking in a well equipped kitchen. Two of the bedrooms have TVs, washer and dryer were very helpful/convenient, internet a plus. We ventured to St. Marks and saw the lighthouse and even some alligators/other wildlife. The owners were friendly and polite. I would definitely stay again!

Great property that is very close to ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Owners are great. They are easy to work with. House is very comfortable. Owners are upgrading the property. Alligator Point is our kind of Florida retreat, very slow paced and quiet. I would stay here again.

Excellent vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last summer and it was wonderful. The Gulf to bay lot was awesome since we brought jet skis with us. Fishing was great, even for amateurs. House was in excellent condition and clean. We loved every moment on Alligator Point. Owner was always reachable and polite. Thanks Chris!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay - great house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the White Pelican in April 2010. The house has been well maintained. The house is very nice house with a large screen porch and deck and large kitchen and living area. It's a good house for families with young children.

We had a positive experience communicating with the owner. Owner was responsive and very easy to work with through email and phone.

The beach is beautiful. We saw a black-tip shark, sting rays, dolphins, and crabs. Alligator Point is a great beach for a family trip with young children.

Additional pricing information

Tax Rate 9.0%
Notes Sunday to Sunday rentals preferred (exceptions considered). Alligator Point rentals are rare and usually fully book. Last year we were unable to accommodate many request as we were fully booked during most of the peak season. In order to allow more people to enjoy the beach we love, we recently decreased our minimum stay from 7 days to 3 days. We will still give priority to week long rentals but in order to allow rentals during weeks we will only be here a few days, we will accept partial week rentals within 30 days of any rental date if it isn't already booked.
