Make a holiday apartment in Steinhatchee your home away from home

Lying centrally in the crooked elbow of Florida's Gulf Coast, Steinhatchee's holiday villas and cottages are perfectly positioned for exploring all of Florida's many delights. However, if quiet solitude right on the water is what you crave, Steinhatchee's holiday rentals deliver in spades. Just about all accommodation in Steinhatchee comes air-conditioned to alleviate your discomfort on overhot days, while dishwashers and washer/dryers alleviate the stress of mundane chores. For cool evenings, most Steinhatchee rentals are equipped with satellite or cable TV, a DVD player, and a BBQ grill by the pool.

Things to do

-Watersports: There are several marinas in this tiny river town, giving you plenty of opportunities for getting on and in the water. Fishing is one of the areas main industries, so you can catch your own dinner for the grill back at your Steinhatchee holiday accommodation.

-Beaches: There's little in the way of sandy beaches here, which partway explains it peacefulness. While it's really not a good idea to book HideAway.co.uk's Steinhatchee accommodation if you're looking for a beach holiday, if you're prepared to put in the driving time there are gorgeous beaches to both the north and south.

-Nightlife: Rollicking nights of partying? No. But there are delicious seafood restaurants serving food caught the same day, and several eateries offering other fare. Cross City, a few miles up the road has some fast food outlets, if that takes your fancy.

-Forest Capital Museum State Park: Second only to fishing, the region's other main industry was logging. This fascinating museum documents the history of logging in the area as well as local wildlife. Right next door is the restored 1864 Cracker homestead to explore. Great place to go for a picnic.

-Econfina River State Park: A short drive up the coast gets you to Econfina River State Park, over 3,000 acres of salt marsh with pine islands, oak and pine forests, and pine flatwoods ecosystems. The park offers fishing, hiking, horse riding, kayaking, canoeing, boating, and birdwatching. Concessions are available if you don't want to picnic.

Weather in Steinhatchee

Florida's weather established its reputation as America's holiday destination. The profusion of water around moderates temperates, preventing the extremes you see in drier inland areas. With maximum thermometer readings rarely reaching the mid 30s Celsius in the long summers, air-conditioning isn't so much a necessity, more a luxury. The winters are ideal for the British holidaymaker, with temps and rainfall about the same as our summers. The very occasional cold snap only occurs one or two days a year, if at all, and the sunsets are to die for.

Travel to Steinhatchee

Jacksonville International Airport is the closest major hub at 146 miles, though Northwest Florida Beaches Airport (187 miles) could also be an option, but neither of these airports fly direct to Europe. Your best bet for a direct fly/drive is Orlando International Airport, though the commute from there is a significant road trip at 175 miles. Even at the best of times, Florida public transport leaves a lot to be desired, as in the US the car is king. Steinhatchee's remoteness is part of its charm, but it does mean no bus or rail access.
