What makes this condo unique

People come to Carrabelle not only for fabulous fishing but also to sail, snorkel, scuba dive, scallop, play on the beaches or to just steal away from the real world for a while. Wildlife is plentiful here in Carrabelle. It is not unusual to spot a deer, fox, blue heron, pelican or even a family of black bears at play. If luck is really with you, you may be entertained by local dolphins when walking the beach or riding in a boat while visiting Carrabelle. Here you can truly unwind and enjoy the beauty of our white-sand beaches and river marshes while you take in the sound of softly lapping waves and the rustle of palms swaying in the gentle breezes.

We had a wonderful vacation! Thank you Mr. Vaughn! The condo has great view, and we loved pier. The only thing was we didn't have any cell signal in that area.

Wonderful place to rest and relax

  • 5 of 5

Mr Vaughn was wonderful to work with. It was a little warm upstairs but probably only needed filter change. Called about sheets for sofa sleeper and extra bath cloths and they were there within a very short time. The maid was more than accommodating. I feel sure we will be staying here again and maybe bring our families. Views were beautiful.

Weeked Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

This condo is all that it is stated to be and more. It is very nice from top to bottom, in fact it feels brand new! It was well appointed with everything that we needed. We rented it for a couples weekend get-a-way and it fit our needs perfectly. It is a beautiful location with amazing views of the gulf and Dog Island. This has been stated, but just be aware, there is not really any beach at this location and there is no water entry for swimming or motorized boats/jet ski's. We spent time at Bald Point State Park which was beautiful and there almost no one on the beach. Also, a boat rental and a day out at Dog Island are well worth the time. The Fisherman's Wife was our favorite place to eat in Carrabelle. Thanks again Van for a great rental experience and for being so responsive. I can't recommend this location highly enough. Enjoy!

Property was very nice and new.... My comments to my husband were that this feels like a home!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much!! We had an amazing vacation!! The unit was so nice and spacious and truly was more like a home than a condo! We enjoyed being able to spread out and not be piled on top of each other. There was plenty of room for all! The view is amazing from the master bedroom and the main living area. I absolutely loved being able to cook and look out over the water at the same time. And I loved that they provided more than the usual junky limited cookware that you see in a rental. My husband and father loved being able to go fish on the pier whenever they wanted. We will definitely be back.... Maybe in the spring.... with some friends!!!

If you want a quiet getaway, this is it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights in June. The view is stunning from both decks, as the photos show. Quality finishes, appliances, & furniture. Covered parking was nice. Note that the beach here is not swim-friendly. It is full of sticks and a thick layer of mud from the protected grasses. We did park our chairs on the beach, though. BUT, there's a gorgeous beach in Carrabelle, just 10 miles away, that we picnicked at every day. It's a quiet, local community that fit our needs perfectly. There is a grocery store and one, small but fantastic seafood place in town, but other than that, we hung out here. I will recommend to all our friends and we will be back!

Very nice, clean, well equipped condo with beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time staying at Bungalow By The Gulf. We had a blast fishing off the end of the pier, and actually caught a lot of fish. The condo was very nice just like the pictures show. As were the views. We went to the beach at St George which was very nice. We ate some very good seafood at Angelo and Son's Seafood Restaurant in Panacea. Highly recommend you try the Buffalo Backs and the Crab Meat Au Gratin.

Would love to stay there again. We stayed 6/4/16-6/10/16.

Car: necessary

Located in the Panhandle of Florida just Southwest of Tallahassee, Carrabelle is the last vestige of Old Florida, a haven for discriminating people who love the coastal outdoors but shy away from crowds. Three pristine rivers converge at Carrabelle and connect with the Gulf of Mexico, providing access to unstressed salt and freshwaster fishing grounds. Tarpon, Redfish, Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Cobia: just a sample of the species that inhabit our waters.

Carrabelle's waterfront combines the authenticity of a working waterfront with the fun of recreational fishing and boating. Charter fishing is readily available. Carrabelle connects to 750,000 acres of public forest for hunting, hiking, birding, trail-riding or just enjoying the passage of eagles, deer, blue heron, osprey and black bear. White sand beaches at Carrabelle Beach and Dog Island beckon beachcombers, swimmers and snorkelers. A true fishing village, its people have been harvesting the sea for more than 100 years. Shrimping, oystering, commercial and recreational game fishing together with tourism have been the mainstays of Carrabelle’s economic development over the years.

Although a hidden secret no longer, Carrabelle’s ideal location is surrounded by state and national forests, together with its beautiful, deep water seaport. The community of 1300 residents welcomes travelers who enter by boat, or arrive via scenic Highways 98 along the coast, and 67 through the forests.

One of only a few small towns in historic Franklin County, Carrabelle is proud of its independence and home-grown residents. Visitors can mix easily with local folks in the coffee shop, neighborhood bars and restaurants, the grocery, pharmacy service/convenience stores and at the post office too. Hardware stores plus a gift shop ensure that both male and female travelers can buy necessities or just browse for souvenirs during their visit. The Chamber of Commerce Visitors’ Center, the World’s Smallest Police Station, the Carrabelle History Museum, the WWII Camp Gordon Johnston Museum and local shrimp boats are special highlights not to be missed when enjoying a walk toward the scenic Riverfront Pavillion located on Marine Street.

City Attractions: As the visitor travels just west of town, watch for the historic Crooked River Lighthouse in its wooded setting on the north side of Highway 98. And don’t miss the miles and miles of white sand beaches, open to the public for walking and enjoying. A public wayside park with bathroom facilities is located less than a mile west of town. Further west, the Tate’s Hell Forest walking trail sign will lure the visitor into the trailhead. All the while, the white heads and tails of soaring eagles, together with pelicans, herons, and osprey can be seen circling overhead along the beautifully scenic waterfront highway.
