WHITE PELICAN - BEACH-FRONT HOME ON GULF-TO-BAY LOT

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 new owners and lots of renovations and new furnishings (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 12 with couches (extra charge for more than 7 people.) Air conditioned, dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, DVD, VCR, gas grill, fully furnished, except linens. High speed wireless internet and Cable TV provided.

Amenities: Hardwood floors throughout, two queen beds, bunk bed with double and a single; recently remodeled; tile kitchen counters and tile baths; 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 generally require 7 day minimum and run from Sunday to Sunday unless other arrangements are made.

We have finally found our favorite beach house!

  • 5 out 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 out 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 out 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 out 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 out 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 out 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.
