About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy the bay and surrounding areas and all the variety that is has to offer. Step out to the dock to fish or crab. Launch your own boat or have the use of our John Boat for fishing in the canals or Choctawhatchee Bay. Enjoy the incredible wildlife, birdwatching and dolphins from the deck with 160 year old overhanging oaks. Home is located on a very private road that reaches to the end of the peninsula, allowing total serenity. The beaches of South Walton are just across the bridge, but we believe that you will find, as we did, that this is where you have the best of all worlds. Beautiful starry nights are spectacular after a day at the beach or fishing on the bayou.

Fabulous Master Suite with Sitting Room and stunning views from every angle. This home has a wonderful floor plan, affording privacy to all. Additional features of home include 11 foot ceilings, great room, huge sunroom, beautiful antiques, wonderful linens, new heart of pine floors, new paint, and immaculate condition.

Wonderful seafood restaurants, as well as local fare abound within five minutes. Public boat ramp within three minutes. Secluded yet accessible to everything - beaches eight minutes away, entertainment, and water sports. Escape the traffic and noise and enjoy this slice of heaven.

We looked for years for a property that was this special - we invite you to share it. We love this home and think that you will too. Wonderful fishing all around, unobstructed water views from every room in the house. Tranquility and peacefulness abound!

Property is also available for long term rental or purchase. We love the area so much that we have purchased several other properties as well. If you're not familiar with this beautiful part of the Panhandle, please let us welcome you to fall in love with it as well.

Please be advised that this property is surrounded by water and young children would need to be watched very carefully.

About The Owner

I am a realtor in the Denver Metro Area and have been going to the area for nearly fifty years while growing up in Mississippi. I love the beaches but I love living on the bay with the wildlife, solitude, privacy and the ability to enjoy the water and all that it has to offer.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose North West Florida

We love the area for fishing, crabbing, water sports, sunsets fabulous dining within five minutes!

What makes this house unique

Watching nature at its best from the dock and decks is bliss to us. The huge live oaks provide a peaceful canopy for reading, grilling and water gazing.

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home at an amazing location. The website pictures don't do the house justice. More charming than expected. Perfect fishing location. After taking our boat to the intercoastal and the bridges, found that the best fishing was right at the house. The owner was so helpful with all my questions. Best experience we've ever had with a VBBO rental. Highly recommend this rental. A+++

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in this charming cottage for several years now. It is a beautiful and peaceful place. There is plenty to do - fishing, hiking, kayaking, etc right at the cottage - and you are just a short drive from the beauty of the beaches as well as a quick drive into Destin if you want that excitement. It is a very private and quiet home - you will rarely even see the neighbors. The home is beautifully decorated and has views of the water all around. The large deck out back makes a great place for morning coffee or gathering around the grill for dinner. The house is very roomy and open - so there is plenty of space for family - yet many special quiet nooks for reading and napping.

Our family has a wonderful and peaceful time evertime we come here - it a a glorious place to relax, reconnect and unwind. We would highly recommend this home to anyone ! It is just fabulous !

My wife, two sons and I totally enjoyed the great fishing, crabbing, relaxation, comfort and wonderful views of the water and sunrises and sunsets while vacationing for one week at the best location in the Florida panhandle/ Emerald Coast of Florida.
