Make a holiday villa in Horseshoe Beach your home away from home

Located on an isolated peninsula jutting out into the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Horseshoe Beach holiday villas are a great base for exploring the extensive river deltas, bays, islands and inlets of the Gulf Coast. Quietly out of the way, renting Horseshoe Beach apartments and villas mean guests can spend full days aboard a boat, fishing, wildlife watching, or simply enjoying the subtropical sunsets. All Horseshoe Beach holiday accommodation comes fully air-conditioned, and a few even have access to a pool. Select rentals at Horseshoe Beach come with laundry facilities, dishwashers, satellite or cable TV and DVD players.

Things to do

-Nature: Holiday rentals at Horseshoe Beach may be near nirvana for fishermen. Surrounded on all sides by water, and with literally hundreds of miles of undulating coastline to search for a productive swim, the only thing that could spoil the fun would be the weather. And this is Florida.

-Beaches: Beaches are not the strong suit in this particular area of the Florida coast, though some sandy beaches do exist. Most of the seafront around Horseshoe Beach is rocky. Luckily, the sandy beaches that do exist are mostly only accessible by boat, so privacy is almost certain.

-Watersports: Almost exclusively given over to watersports in this most beautiful, natural Gulf Coast setting, Horseshoe beach is a mecca for kayaking and canoeing as well as the powered boats of the fishermen and waterskiers. Guests can look out for shellfish, too, with clams, oysters and scallops particularly prevalent.

-Nightlife: Not exactly a destination for those big on nights out, the options are limited to the Horseshoe Beach Café and the Trap Bar at the marina. Fishermen are notoriously self-reliant, however, so guests can quite easily bring their own party with them, and no beer tastes better than when relaxing on a boat at sunset with a line dangling over the side.

Weather in Horseshoe Beach

The climate in Florida is described as 'subtropical', which means long, hot, wet summers and warm, dry, short winters; ostensibly a wet season and dry season. The temperatures during the wet summer can reach the mid-30°C range, with significant humidity, though this often breaks during the afternoon or evening into a short thunderstorm. Winters have daily highs averaging in the low-20s, which equates to a British summer and explains Florida's popularity during the 'colder' months.

Travel to Horseshoe Beach

Horseshoe Beach's remote location means the nearest air access is Gainesville Regional Airport at 77 miles away, but this has no direct flights to Europe. For direct flights, Tampa International Airport is the closest at 163 miles distant. Without driving, the methods of getting to this unique location are either severely limited or extremely expensive. Public transport simply does not exist, so the only really viable option is to drive. Luckily, US roads are a masterpiece of planning and execution, and petrol is so inexpensive, miles per gallon is a statistic that rarely means much.

Great Location!!!

5 of 5
Bethany was very responsive to all questions. Location in Steinhatchee, FL, is great. Property is well maintained, clean, and is as described and pictured. We enjoyed it very much and will recommend this cabin to nature lovers.
