About the property

Gulf View Home with 2 bedrooms & 2 baths. Screen porch is perfect for relaxing.

If you long for the "good old days" when going to Florida beaches meant time with family, boating, fishing and exploring, we have the place for you. We refer to this area as "the Forgotten Coast". The reason is, that this part of Florida remains mostly undiscovered by the masses. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath coastal cottage is the perfect getaway. Wildlife abounds and the views go forever. You will enjoy the easy lifestyle of SummerCamp Beach. We feature resort like settings that include boardwalks, large community pool, outdoor grilling, docks, kayak use and sandy beaches.

You will feel like you are the only one here. Our lovely home provides every amenity that you would expect in a vacation rental. Fast wifi and flat screen tvs are in each room. Our soaring ceilings offer plenty of sunshine, highlighting the coastal theme throughout the home. As owners, we live in the neighborhood, and are minutes away from helping you with any need you may have on your vacation. We can offer excellent recommendations for restaurants, places to explore, golfing, fishing, biking and hiking. We love it here, and know you will as well. We offer a personal touch and truly work to make your vacation special.

Our screened in front porch provides the perfect setting to enjoy your morning coffee, while taking in the scene. Our beaches here are rustic and natural. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed. Our low tides make for excellent exploring opportunities. You can search for shells, see fish and other sea life as you wade in ankle deep water. It is truly an amazing experience. If you have had enough of fast paced Florida, be sure to check us out. Life is slow here. We can't wait to show you around.

Perfect Getaway!

5 of 5

This quiet little cottage located at Summer Camp was the perfect spring getaway for my family. The beach was literally footsteps away. It was tucked away from the main road which allowed the kids to have free roam of the area. With all the comforts of home, it makes a mom feel good to let the kids play in the cozy backyard while preparing dinner and watching them through the spacious window. The owners did a fine job picking the name of their little cottage because "the ocean restores the soul" is the perfect fitting.

Home was exactly as shown in the pictures. Owner responded quickly to all questions. Peaceful and relaxing. Bringing our fur baby was a bonus! Having access to kayaks to explore the coast was a delight.

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. It is in a wonderful location for us. We love to fish and this house is close to the lanark boat launch we like to use. Look forward to staying here again.

Would highly recommend this to any one who is looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful natural setting. This is old Florida at its very best. The home is just awesome. Could not believe how pretty it was and very clean. The pictures really do not do it justice.

The setting among all the trees, morning views of the sunrise, and walks along the beach were just great.

I brought my two dogs and they loved it. Will definitely be back! Thank you for opening your lovely home to us.

Awesome Relaxing Week

5 of 5

The Ocean Restores the Soul is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The property was the perfect size and has everything you need.

The "kids", two Chihuahua's, enjoyed walks and exploring the unspoiled beach.

It was so nice to spend time away from the fast paced world and just enjoy the peace and calm.

Would definitely love to return in the future.

Clean, quiet, and perfect for our family’s vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sea Monkey a year ago, and loved it just as much the second time around. The house is nicely decorated and clean. The water views are relaxing and be nature is unspoiled. Our first morning we awoke to a rabbit in the front yard and we left seeing a deer in the East Side of SummerCamp. The area is a well kept secret.

We had fun swimming in the pool each day. We explored the shallows by canoe and kayak. Our twin sons loved seeing sea stars at Turkey Point and the various types of crabs as well.

Fishing is excellent from right across the street to the other side of Summer Camp. My husband caught several fish and even saw a hammerhead shark and dolphins!

We mostly cooked and ate at the house, which is well equipped for making it a home away from home. We did venture to eat at The Pearl, and had great food there.

We’ll be back again next year making more family memories.

This is a wonderful, spacious, two bedroom home just a bit off the ocean in a wooded area. About 160 steps down well laid out paths. We had a great time. House is well appointed and very comfortable as well as beautiful. The silence is wonderful. Great pool, piers, walking, exploring, etc. Groceries and restaurants are a short drive away. Loved watching the mullet jump from the pier with seats. We had a great time!

charming cottage , hidden treasure

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this cottage from the moment we arrived. It was very clean and well decorated. We cooked two dinners and the kitchen had everything we needed. The beds were beautifully made and very comfortable. The community is right on the gulf yet at the same time, in a forest of pine trees. The beach has wildlife, shells, seaweed and driftwood. A photographers paradise. The club house pool was opened and kayaks available though we never got around to using them. We will have to go back! Thanks for a lovely peaceful retreat.

Home was as pictured. Very peaceful, serene with natural beauty. Beaches are more natural and rugged, which we expected. Very relaxing and a nice change of pace!
