Why Julie Schulz chose Florida

This unspoiled area of the Gulf coast has been unchanged for many years. Small towns along Highway 98 reflect the relaxed atmosphere of the south. Charter a fishing boat, eat the freshest oysters you ever had, and explore unique shops in Apalachicola.

What makes this house unique

You can really get away from the rat race here. It area has been left 'natural' and is home to many birds, deer, even the occasional black bear or the little gator that lives in the pond across the road. Even in the warmest weather, the screened porch is comfortable for dining. And the beach is nearly private, and has gentle waves and the beautiful soft white sand that this area is famous for.

Lovely house. Great set up for family.

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Appliances and air worked well. The layout was great for our family. The number of flights of stairs would be challenging with anyone with walking/climbing stairs issues.

We could not figure out how to use the DVD player in the main family room and there were not clear instructions, so we just watched TV. In the instructions we received online, it did not mention when to put the garbage out for pick up. It was posted on the wall, which we located later. When we arrived there were already 2 bags of garbage already in the garbage can and it smelled bad. We contacted the agent who said she would send someone by to pick up the garbage. That did not happen, so by the time we left after a week. the garbage was overflowing and we had two bags that would not fit in it.

The house was very clean. The master bedroom smelled of dog.

While the advertisement says walk to the beach, which we did and took about 10 minutes, the beach itself is not what we expected. The water was not what we wanted to swim in. You could surf fish and look for crabs and seashore life which the kids enjoyed.

The community pool was nice and not crowded. You did have to drive to it, out on the main highway about 6 minutes down the road. Kayaks and a canoe were available. We opted for the canoe so the 4 of us could be together and it was very difficult to get it back up the beach to the boathouse and impossible to lift back on a rack. We did enjoy our time on the water.

Overall, I would recommend this property, as long as you aren't expecting to be on a pristine clear gulf beach. The house itself had plenty of room and was well maintained. It is pretty isolated in pine woods. That had a certain charm. A nice contrast to other beach tourist destinations on the gulf coast.

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. From the almost deserted beach each day, to the bikes and sand toys, we could not have asked for anymore for our vacation. In addition, the kids spent the evenings at the pool. We appreciate all of the suggestions and brochures that were provided. Thank you again!

Relaxing, Quiet and Private!!!

  • 4 of 5

It was a GREAT stay!! Once we found the beach access it made life so much easier with our 3 yr. old grandson!!! Really beautiful house outside and inside!! Daily exercise with the 3 flights of stairs! Beautiful views and really private, quiet and relaxing!! Really good food in driving distance!! Really nice amenities!! Not really good for smaller children with all the stairs but outside of that, absolutely no complaints at all!!! Do recommend it!!

Wonderfully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, and it was even better than the first. We had the beach to ourselves, except for 1 hour, for four days. We used the well appointed kitchen for every meal, and really liked the new twin bed set-up in the kid's bedroom.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

It's our third year staying here during the summer, and we will continue coming back each year. The house is very accommodating for families with children of all ages. The pool was perfect for the toddler, while the tweens fished, kayaked, and explored the beaches. We have found our traditional spot for many years to come!

Beautiful home and very peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. Only wish you could get to the pool from within the development. Lots of wildlife to view at the ocean. If you are looking for peace and quiet then this is definitely a great choice.

Owner's Response: Hi Michelle; Thank you for your great review of our Summer Breeze vacation rental. Yes, we too wish that the pool was closer. I will check our listing to make sure that it is clear that you must drive to the pool. Other than that, I hope you enjoyed the nearly deserted beach and the fresh seafood from the area. We'd love to have you back at any time!
