Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Alligator Point - Pair-A-Dice

Spacious 3BR/2BA Beachfront Home, Sleeps 8, covered patio and outside shower

Enjoy 8 miles of deserted Gulf front beaches surrounded by 5,000 acres of Bald Point State Park. Take advantage of Alligator Harbor's sheltered boating and fishing marina. The area is known for some of the best fishing in the state and less than an hour from the Tallahassee airport makes Alligator Point the perfect location for a relaxing vacation.

'Pair-a-Dice' This spacious, 3 bedroom, gulf front beach home overlooks the Gulf of Mexico with 90 feet of private beach and beautiful views of Alligator Bay. The home's wraparound decks along with numerous windows make it possible for one to enjoy a dramatic water view from every room. The home is furnished with antiques and nautical handcrafts throughout. It has a panoramic tiled kitchen and living room for family gatherings,tiled bedrooms and bathrooms, and a captain's spiral staircase to the loft. Special areas are the master bedroom with a sitting area, and a fabulous outside covered eating area, and an outside shower

Central air, charcoal grill, fully furnished kitchen, bedroom with a sitting area, washer/dryer, 3 TVs, cable, and much more.

Swimming, fishing, shelling, sunbathing, birdwatching, biking, dolphin watch, boating, great seafood restaurants and markets. (It's worth the trip, just to eat). Golf course is 40 minutes away. It is a great place to rest, read and enjoy nature but it is not a resort destination with commercial entertainment.. Alligator Point is a very secluded, residential, unspoiled sand dune.

Come for the beach, the wildlife and great seafood. Panacea or Carrabelle iare the nearest area for grocery shopping and dinning. The entire area specializes in seafood restaurants and markets.

Wakulla Springs State Park, Panacea Gulf Aquarium, and Apalachicola are great day trips

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house to take a family vacation. We have 4 kids (oldest 10 youngest 3) and they all loved it. We fished right off the beach everyday and caught Black Tip Reef Sharks, Stingrays, Redfish, SeaTrout and several other fish. We also saw a SeaTurtle and Dolphins swimming. A great area to look for sea sheals. This is a quite location for a family who loves to spend time together. If you are looking for a theme park or some place to drop the kids this is not the place. The house is in great shape and has awesome views. The owner of the house is fanastic to work with. Responds to emails or questions extremely fast and we received our deposit back within 5 days of checking out. The people who live in the houses that are around the house are extremely friendly. I would highly recommend this location for anyone with family or a couple who is looking for a quite relaxing vacation.

loved it! Perfect place to make family memories!

  • 5 of 5

The house is welcoming and the decor add to the charm . It is clean and had everything we needed. This house is on a great part of the beach , very secluded and perfect for our family of 6. We have stayed in many houses at other beaches and on alligator point but " pair a dice" is our favorite . Wonderful new family memories were made and will be forever cherished !

Owner's Response: The family embraced the natural setting of Alligator Point enjoying the sea and all that it has to offer in a area where nature controls and not commercialism dictating ones activities. Hope they will return soon.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just had an amazing week in this house at Alligator Point. Kathy is very prompt in answering questions and getting back to me with any concerns I had. The house is very well kept and it is in a prime location on the "island"....across the street from the marina and tiki bar and of course just steps away from the gorgeous and always changing gulf. If you are looking to get back to nature, this is the place you want to be.

The beds are clean and comfortable, the towels are soft and clean. The kitchen is well stocked and the wifi worked well too.

I usually try to find a place with a screened in porch, but the sitting area underneath the house serves the same purpose (staying out of the sun) and still gives you gorgeous views. What we gained by not having a screened porch is being able to gaze at the incredible night sky with the stars amazing us with their beauty. We also saw some fantastic lightening storms from way way off in the distance at night which was breathtaking.

We highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: We have been in the vacation rental business for almost thirty years. Having traveled the world we realize, we just don't look for a beautiful spot but cleanliness and comfortable beds are just as important. Alligator Point has its own beauty, the rest is left up to me and our cleaning service. We love feed back on how we can always improve. We appreciate the time given to us from this guests who enjoyed the natural setting that leaves one refreshed.

Can't Wait to Go Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time vacationing at Alligator Point. We absolutely love the house as well as the area.

The house is immaculately kept, well equipped and all the appliances/electronics/wifi are in good working condition. The linen and dishes are of excellent quality. The living area and the master suite is huge, with plenty of seating and access to the deck. The loft is very cute with 4 identical beds and boat seating, my 10-year-old calls it his own camp.

The beach is only steps away from the house. We simply left our beach chairs on the beach overnight. The area towards the end of Alligator Point (an easy walk from the house) is enchanting. We saw many crabs, dolphins and even a small stingray!

Kathy, the owner, is very responsive to my questions. The booking process went very smoothly.

All in all, we really enjoyed our vacation at Pair-a-dice. Thank you, Kathy, for sharing your wonderful house with us!

Fabulous beach holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place! This is definitely the best end of Alligator Point as it is close to a bird sanctuary with miles of beach to walk. It was like being on my own desert island. Tide pools to explore, dolphins playing in the surf and a 50 species bird list, all with 100 yards of the deck! The amenities in the house were perfect. I would definitely stay again.

Loved it !

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from Pair of Dice!! Not that we wanted to leave, we absolutely loved it!!! It was very relaxing and enjoyable. Kathy was absolutely great to work with. The neighbors were all super sweet. We had kids from 12-22 plus 2 couples. We fished, played in the water , collected shells and simply relaxed. Anyone wanting to get away from the tourist traps this is a great place to go. The only thing that could of made it even a little bit better would have been kayaks . I've stayed in many beach homes and this has been my favorite. Thanks so much!
