About the property

Spectacular ocean views from this high end property.

If you are tired of the chaos at the busy beaches, try this remote beach near Carrabelle. There aren't many houses on this stretch of beach, so you will be virtually alone way out here. Yet you are only 8-15 minutes away from all the action at Carrabelle, Eastpoint, Appalacacola or St George Island.

The house was originally built by some famous rich guy and he put all the high end finishes in, so the place is beautiful. The first floor is raised 22 ft above high tide and the second floor is 32 ft creating amazing views from every window. Lots decks and balconies The marble tile everywhere is gorgeous. Huge windows let in all the light. A high semi open carport underneath is tall enough to put an RV and large boat or 4 vehicles under it. It has a paver driveway.

There are 4 bedrooms. Two Kings, one queen, one bunk bed pair plus a sleeper sofa in the loft. sleeps 10. 3 rooms have balconies.

At low tide, you can go pick up your breakfast laying in the tidal pools without ever dropping a hook. House has a fish cleaning table with water. The shrimping off the beach is amazing.

The kids will be endlessly fascinated by the tidal pools at low tide. At high tide, the water is shallow for about 200 yards. The waves break easy here.

If you are into fitness, take the Kayak out and explore the coast. I was really surprised how easy it is to paddle a Kayak. If you somehow get bored with the water, hike the trails in the enormous state park across the street. If you have never been away from the city lights, be sure to look up on a moonless night to see more stars than you ever imagined. Bald eagles fly low overhead and will come play with your kite.

You have great views of the Gulf, St George Island and Dog Island across the Sound. Dolphins swim by regularly. It is one of the best fishing areas around. Many types of birds are in the area including two eagles.

There are all types of activities: boating, fishing, and kayaking, swimming, hiking, site seeing, bird watching, etc.

If this little bit of paradise sounds like what you are looking for, call or contact us.

Our jaws dropped the moment we pulled onto the beautiful brick paver driveway! “Are we staying here?” Our three teenage boys said in unison. My wife and I had told them that we were spending their spring break week in their grandparents camper... “this is the best surprise ever!” the smiles on their faces were priceless.

The House- The pictures do not do this property justice. We loved sitting on the HUGE decks overlooking the ocean. From here we saw dolphins, bald eagles, pelicans and countless other ocean side critters. Technically I guess you can say the house has three master suites each with its own balcony. All of which have views that will make your heart smile. At night with the windows open, the sound of the ocean will lull you to sleep. The master bedroom and smaller bunk room are connected on the main floor. Perfect for those traveling with little ones who need to sleep a little closer to Mom and Dad. Upstairs both bedrooms are nice sized, comfy beds, Jack n Jill bath and plenty of privacy. There’s also a pull out sofa in the loft. The entire house was very clean and the kitchen well stocked. The only downfall for this home is the road noise, at night the sound of the occasional car interrupts the tranquility of the ocean (I still recorded an hour of the ocean sounds on my phone) FYI All of the beachfront homes in the area are on this same stretch road.

Steve the owner was extremely helpful and answered all texts and emails promptly.

If you are visiting the Carrabelle/Apalachicola area and this home is available, look no more, book it now, you will not be disappointed. You have found Paradise!!!

Thank you Vogel family for sharing your beautiful home with us. It really is a special place. Looking forward to coming again!

Great, quiet location away from crowds

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed the location. The beach was very private and the gulf was full of wildlife. The kids enjoyed swimming in the calm water and finding marine life along the beach and in the water. Great location near really nice beaches, good restaurants, a state park and now crowds. We definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: Thanks to everyone for their great reviews. We just went down ourselves for a maintenance week and it was hard to leave. Things were in pretty good shape after 30 guests. Some of you left private suggestions too; thanks, thats helpful. I think we got all of them addressed.

Family Fun Time

  • 5 of 5

This beach home is a wonderful place to have a relaxing stay with the entire family. Not great for the elderly of course, because of all the stairs. We had ages 9 months old to 64. Lots of room, very large deck area and incredible views! Bring your ice and food to cook and you won't even want to leave to eat out. Thank you, Steve for being so prompt in answering any questions we had. Hope to visit again next year!

Very nice place and really private.

  • 5 of 5

We visited Carrabelle this summer and my family had one of our best vacation experiences. The fishing was some of the best we have ever experienced and we have fished all over the country. The beach was very peaceful. Dolphins came by every morning and evening. The owner was very nice and helpful.

We had a wonderful time at Paradise by the Sea.

Everything was comfortable and clean. The kids loved playing in the kayak. You can't beat the basically private beach. We will definitely rent again!

We had a fantastic time. The house was nice, and the beach was nice. The house actually sits on the St. George sound, which results in smaller waves, which was nice. We enjoyed the beach and the fact that the water was clear enough to see some smaller stingrays as well as the crabs, and other small fish. We did have the privilege of seeing a couple of dolphin with one being no more than 15 feet away from us. The only thing that we didn’t enjoy was the yellow flies, which as we understood was just part of nature for that particular area. We would definitely recommend staying here, and have to say the Steve was great to deal with.
