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!

Beautiful home on a lovely beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely rental. There was ample space for our family and the views were phenomenal. We have been visiting this stretch of the coast for several years and will definitely return. The home is conveniently located and has plenty of cooking supplies. It is always quiet and the beach is new everyday. We did have a few days inconvenienced by Alberto but the rest of the week was fabulous. My children love discovering hermit crabs and horseshoe crabs in the bay and watching the pelicans and ospreys dive for fish. This is a unique area and this home is an excellent way to experience it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. I really appreciate the feedback. I was worried about you in that storm, but I think even the big storms can have their own special charm; so long as you don't go stir crazy. FYI y'all -- Alberto was a tropical storm.

Beautiful ocean views

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. We loved the beach and fishing. Ocean views were great and we were the only ones on the beach. There was lots of wildlife to watch. A beautiful Eagle was seen many times each day. House was clean and well equipped (more seating in family room would have been nice). The house is right on a busy highway with traffic 24 hours a day. Noise was loud outside and could be heard inside as well. The area has plenty of good restaurants and things to do. The owner was very responsive. Overall everyone had a good time.

Perfect vacation home for a relaxing get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place to relax. We felt a million miles away. We were 2 adults and 2 kids. My husband fished along the sandbars & shore, sea kayaking, afternoon golf. The 10 yr old girls played on the beach all day - every day. It's so private that you feel your kids are safe. I sat on the decks and fell asleep reading, and loved long walks along the quiet beach. We had a fun time visiting St. George's Island and going to dinner in Eastpoint and Carrabelle. But mostly we just enjoyed no schedule and chilling every day while enjoying the beautiful views, the fresh sea breezes, and the sound of the ocean. On the one rainy day, we stayed inside and used wifi on our tablets and played games. The house is very spacious with nice bedrooms & bathrooms. The many windows let in lots of light and air. It was neat & clean when we arrived. There enough beach chairs and towels for us but a large party would need to bring more to accommodate everyone. But you may not need beach chairs (unless you build a fire.) It's much nicer to sit on the furnished decks than the beach anyway! The owner was very responsive. We hope to come again next year with one more family.
