Only minutes from the Apalachee Bay and spectacular fishing, our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee) is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, which has a community swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is a large boat dock (2 boat slips) located on a deep-water canal, which is just two canals over from the boat launch. We offer 1600 sq. feet of spacious living quarters, featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen, large sun room and screened-in porch. The family room is a large open space with a fireplace, and is furnished with comfortable den furniture, 32in TV, dining furniture and bar seating. Our master bedroom adjoins the sun room and offers a magnificent view of the canal. In the summer and winter, the sun room is a perfect place to kick back, relax, and observe the natural habitat of the bay.

Fishing: For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. We have year round fishing, with different species here at different times. Trout and redfish are the most sought after fish and can be caught all year long. Tarpon are here from June till August, and cobia will show up in the early spring as the water warms and will stay until fall. Other fish that may be caught on the flats are Spanish Mackerel, blue fish, sheepshead, flounder, ladyfish and a numerous variety of sharks to 250 pounds. Many prefer to head out for deeper waters to catch grouper and snapper.

Golf: For the golfer, Wildwood Country Club is a beautiful public golf course located on Hwy. 98 in Medart (less than 10 minute drive). Telephone 850-926-4653

Tennis: For the tennis buff, there are 6 lighted tennis courts across the street from the golf course at Wakulla High School on Hwy. 98 in Medart. Paradise Village also has a tennis court.

Biking: Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail stretches about 20.5 miles from Tallahassee south to St. Marks. Longleaf pine and forests of oak, wax myrtle and yaupon holly nicely shade the route. The trail is wide and smooth, with occasional restrooms and benches along the rural stretches.

Hiking: There are many nature trails to choose from, along with some paved trails. St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and all of the state parks have hiking trails. Be sure to take bug spray, unless you are hiking in the wintertime. Nearby state parks include Wakulla Springs, Bald Point, San Marcos de Apalache, and Ochlockonee River.

Birding & Wildlife: If you have come looking for the call of the wild, then you come to the right place. With vast acres of undeveloped lands and protected wildlife sanctuaries, our natural areas support an unbelievable abundance of wildlife with verified counts of over 300 species of migratory and nesting birds; 52 species of mammals such as the West Indian manatee and Florida black bear; 40 species of amphibians, and 65 species of reptiles.

Windsurfing: Shell Point is also great place for windsurfing and hosts several Regattas each year.

Restaurants: For those who enjoy great seafood, Angelo's in Panacea (20 minutes away) is one of the finest renowned seafood restaurants anywhere - located right on the water. Nearby Spring Creek Restaurant (less than 10 minutes away) also boasts delicious seafood, including soft shell crab, along with a casual down-home atmosphere. Mad Anthony’s Waterfront Grille located on Dickerson Bay at the Rock Landing Marina in Panacea, FL offers some unique seafood dishes, craft beers, with tiki bar dining by the bay. Riverside Café in St. Marks and Ouzts Too in Newport have great food and often have weekend live entertainment. There are many other wonderful restaurants in our area. If you decide to rent with us, we will send you a list of all of the nearby restaurants, along with our personal rating on each one.

Wakulla Springs (10 miles away): Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the largest fresh water springs in the world, is only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. Kids love it and you will, too. The water stays the same temperature all year round. It's very refreshing in the heat of the summertime.

Lighthouses & St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge: The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (15 minutes away), which features the St. Marks Lighthouse, offers a habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles. There are 3 other lighthouses along our Forgotten Coast --- Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle, St. George Island Lighthouse on St. George Island and Cape San Blas Lighthouse in Port St. Joe.

Beaches: For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is about a block from Bare Footing. It is a very, very small beach located on the bay, which means that the only waves that you will see will be on a very windy day. It doesn't compare to the other two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to kick back and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets. Other nearby beaches include Mashes Sands Beach (which has a fishing pier), Alligator Point Beach (25 miles) and Carrabelle Beach (40 miles).

Gulf Specimen Marine Lab: For a close-up, hands-on examination of marine life, check out Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, which is 20 minutes away.

Tallahassee Museum: The Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science is about 30 minutes away, and offers a look at Florida’s wildlife in a natural setting.

Maclay Gardens: Maclay Gardens is located on Thomasville Road in Tallahassee (40 miles away). A masterpiece of floral architecture, the gardens feature a picturesque brick walkway, a secret garden, a reflection pool, a walled garden and hundreds of camellias and azaleas.

Tallahassee & Shopping: Only 30 minutes from Shell Point, Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city – malls restaurants, museums, parks, airport – and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU). Other, more unique shopping can be found at Apalachicola, which is about an hour drive.

About Deborah Word

My name is Deborah Word. My husband, Jerry, and I started visiting Shell Point in 1998. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with the Shell Point area. Since then, we purchased two canal front vacation rental homes in Paradise Village of Shell Point, with high hopes for future retirement there. We love fishing and photography, so Wakulla County is perfect for us. Several years later, I started handling vacation rental reservations for a few other property owners in the surrounding area. I currently manage five rentals in Shell Point, two in Ochlockonee Bay (Panacea) and one in Alligator Point.

Enjoyed our stay!!

  • 4 of 5

Just left after spending four days with family and friends at "Barefooting". We had a wonderful time even though we only saw the sun for one afternoon. House is spacious and accommodated all of us without feeling cramped or right on top of each other. Fishing and crabbing from the dock was fun even catching the sharks! A golf cart would have been nice but managed without one. Not located in an area where groceries or other shopping is near by but once you have your supplies who needs to leave. Would as a personal preference like to have had more lighting such as lamps in the great room and in the bunk room where the overhead light was so bad it was difficult to see anything. Everything else was just great, clean and the people in the area were very nice. Look forward to renting again in the future. Thanks for a great experience!!

Spacious but a bit run-down

  • 3 of 5

The house was not clean when we arrived - sticky floors and countertops, and the fridge was a mess! Also, the glass shower door was falling down, and one electrical outlet was not attached to the wall. The gas grill was broken and rusted out. The house is poorly maintained, and we did not receive any compensation for OUR cleaning services.

There was a lot of room to store our kayaks and bikes, plus lots of dishes so we didn't run out of silverware or glasses before we needed to run the dishwasher.

It was kind of chintzy to be asked to replace the soap, TP and such; we have stayed in about 25 rental houses throughout the country and that has never been asked of us, even in the FL state park cabins.

We left a lengthy note for the rental agent and owner regarding the deficiencies in the house - we are not sure if any action was taken afterward, but we never received a call to discuss our comments.

Owner's Response: I spoke to the renters approximately 2-3 days into their stay and offered to have the owners come over to address their concerns. The renters declined this offer. The renters' concerns were immediately passed on to the cleaning service and the owners to address these maintenance issues. All maintenance issues have been addressed at this time, including outlet, shower door, and a new grill.

Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. It is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city - malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport - and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU). If you are

interested in fishing (trout, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, cobia, flounder, grouper, black bass ... it's saltwater fishing, so the list goes on), boating, or ... if you just want to escape to a relaxing, laid back paradise; yet, be able to venture into the city on a whim, this is the perfect location for you.

Other Activities: beaches, swimming, nature hiking, river boat tours

Golf: For the golfer, Wildwood Country Club is a beautiful public golf course located on Hwy. 98 in Medart (less than 10 minute drive). Telephone 850-926-4653.
