River front cottage

  • 4 of 5

Our family 3 people and our doggie had a great time here. The home is furnished more like a camp but comfortable with all you could require for your stay. It is very peaceful on the river of carabelle and away from the crowds. Our small boat made the vacation! We were able to boat to dog island (great beaches and secluded) st George island state park and alligator point! The stars at night were amazing from the cottage. The only downfall was the nats at this time of year from around 6pm till 10pm. No control over that other than bug spray and the cottage does have a small screened in area. Also if you happen to bring Fido and he is a bit of a runner like mine know that the property is not fenced in from the road I have not completed my dealings with VRBO in that I have not to date been refunded my security but hopefully that will come soon. :). Overall if you want a stay that is peaceful away from the crowds with a great view This is the place! If you have a boat bring it.!! Great that the home is pet friendly and that Robin is very easy to work with :))

Spring break fishing trip

  • 4 of 5

House meets all your needs!! Very quiet area as well. Owners were very nice. The poor area has been taken over by these small biting flies and we couldn't stay outside in the area after 5 in the evening. So beware if u are visiting Carrabelle anytime soon!! They seem to be worse in the river area than the ocean and beaches. This wasn't any implications of the house bc it met all our needs. The back door is very hard to close and open and with the bugs outside it was a must to keep them out. I purchased citronella candles and left for future renters. The WiFi was a bonus and very fast!! The drive along hwy 98 is really pretty as well!! Thanks
