Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

The Spotted Grouper is a delightful Old Florida beach bungalow surrounded by twisted Sand Live Oaks. We are located on Bald Point near Panacea, Florida in a small, quiet beach neighborhood along the Forgotten Coast, surrounded by Bald Point State Park.

The house is 100 yards from the Gulf- to get there just walk down Grouper Street to the water, or use the boardwalk behind the house - there are no streets to cross. The fishing is fantastic, as are the local restaurants and seafood markets.

We are located 45 miles south of Tallahassee, 340 miles due south of Atlanta. The Spotted Grouper sleeps 4 with 1 queen bed and 1 double bed. Sheets and towels are provided.

Note that the Spotted Grouper is 'self-cleaning', ie our guests clean the house themselves on departure. All supplies are provided, as is a cleaning checklist.

Recent updates: Pine floors, new carpet, internet.

Great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week stay here. A great home away from home in a very quiet and uncrowded neighborhood. It was only a short distance to the beach and I had the beach to myself every morning at sunrise for a 2 mile walk.

Perfect for my elderly mom!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely beach home with no stairs, a walk-in shower, comfortable beds, and a short easy walk to the beach. My mother, 92 her next birthday, fell in LOVE with this house! We had a great time this weekend!

Great place ,great time.

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was super clean with a vintage feeling of our childhoods, owners where great about needed items and pointers. Beach was beautiful, quite, felt as if on remote island, only saw several people each day. Local restaurants were great. This was wonderful trip, would highly recommend.

Very relaxing time at this adorable beach bungalow. Your family very clearly loves this house :)

  • 5 of 5

Every room you walk into and everywhere you look you'll find something adorably beach or "Grouper" related :). The house is warm and welcoming and has everything you'll need for your stay! Beds are so comfortable you might just want to sleep in....but don't!! Wake up and open the blinds in the living room and you will see the sun rising over the ocean through the huge picture window. Or better yet, grab a cup of coffee and walk down Grouper Street and take it all in. You'll be glad you did! Thank you Whitworths for sharing your home!!
