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.

Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our month long visit to the Spotted Grouper! It was exactly as described. The Grouper was very clean and well maintained. When the washing machine quit working, the problem was addressed immediately. Everything is on one level and the owners have made this beach cottage so welcoming. It sleeps four comfortably and the kitchen is well appointed for preparing meals while staying there. We loved the short walk to the beach and enjoyed watching the sunrise. We also loved seeing a bald eagle, many other shore birds as well as the dolphins. The shelling was good, too!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! Very nice! It is in a secluded area but close to so many things you can do. We visited the parks, St. George Island, Wakulla Springs for a fabulous boat ride though the area where they shot many Tarzan movies, We went to the Stone Crab Festival in St. Marks and Apalachicola for shopping and visiting historic homes. There is lots of history all around you including a World War II museum. PLUS we visited Mission San Luis in Tallahassee. Amazing place!!! It’s not far at all. The location is perfect. The house is cozy and perfect for relaxing. We watched movies from the collection at the house. We plan to return and we highly recommend it.

Another great stay at The Grouper

  • 5 of 5

We have been here 7 times now ! It was wonderful as always, with beautiful weather. The cottage is always clean and comfortable, stocked with everything we might need. The beds sleep great ! Enjoyed beach walks, sunrises, birds (saw an eagle), seafood, antique shopping and more. We'll be back next year !

Great for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was a amazing place to relax and unwind. Quaint house close to the water has everything that you need. The wifi didn't work but that was a blessing with that and little phone service. Owners were very prompt when contacted. Would rate it very high on the list for a return

Spotted Grouper Bungalow at Old Florida Beach

  • 5 of 5

This recent trip to Florida and the stay at the Spotted Grouper was an absolute pleasure. Relaxing and away from the beaten path is what made the trip so enjoyable. If you like long walks along a beach that feels like its all yours then this a place for your next stay. Bring a good book, kayak, or fishing gear and spend some time in a relaxing atmosphere. The house feels like home and only a few yards from the beach. Super nice in all areas and will book another trip in the near future.

July 4th at the Spotted Grouper

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, nice cool a/c, ocean view, fully equipped everything, comfortable bedding, the living room had several leather sofas and recliners. There was plenty of room for our group of four. The screen porch was a nice place to retreat after dark. The beach is so close and convenient. This home has the owners touches of detail and comfort every where you look. No stairs to climb! Awesome outside shower. We left the Spotless Grouper just as clean as we found it. Thank you Joel and Weesee for your clean and well maintained rental home. We will certainly visit again!
