Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage Directly On Private, (Sleeps 4) White-Sand Beach

Completely renovated Gulf-front/beach-front cottage allows you to rest or play as much as you want and literally get away from it all. Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the screened porch that will make you feel like you're on a luxury cruise ship plying the tropics. Walk the beach from one end to the other collecting sea shells or swimming or sunbathing.

The home is smartly and comfortably furnished. The bathroom allows you to take a shower while looking out to the Gulf and beach. Bedroom furniture is relaxing and new. Prepare meals in the kitchen while gazing out to the Gulf and sparkling white-sand beach or while visiting with family on the screened porch or in the living room.

Home is a perfect get-away for major holidays or an FSU football game. Or drop a child off at an FSU camp while you and your spouse stay a week at the beach! The cottage is great for a family of four or two couples. Relax and do nothing but watch dolphins and walk the beach or fish or jet ski or play golf nearby or go antiquing at nearby towns (Carrabelle, Crawfordville, Apalachicola) and of course, come to eat the best and freshest seafood in the world!

About Chris

Was first introduced to Alligator Point by local friends from Tallahassee in the mid-1990's and have been coming to Alligator Point every year since for the Memorial Day Weekend Captain Jack Fishing Tournament that is held at the Alligator Point Marina. By the way, you must visit the End Of The World Oasis at Alligator Point Marina and have a deep fried Grouper sandwich -- the absolute best! And if you catch it, they'll even fry it up fresh!

Chris purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris chose North West Florida

Because of my familiarity with Alligator Point and the many good times I've had here, decided to finally buy a home. After visiting several homes, all it took was one time out on the screened porch of my cottage to know that this was the place. I always feel like I'm right over the Gulf when sitting on the screened porch. And not only are the sunsets spectacular, but nights with a full moon are also just as stunning!

What makes this cottage unique

The views of the gulf and the beach are priceless not to mention the times that I've been able to sit on the screened porch sipping my favorite beverage and actually watch dolphins swim almost onto the beach as they feed in the very shallow water. Absolutely beautiful!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for our relaxing spring break getaway! The house is very nice and was ready for our arrival. The beach is gorgeous, we saw dolphins and lots of sea life each day. It was remote and very private. The screened in porch is amazing, and where we spent most of our time. We look forward to returning soon!

Great location for those of us who love quiet beach getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Have been vacationing at Alligator Point for last 7 years; the area is "home away from home" to us. This was first time to stay at this particular property; was yet another great week, as usual!

Beach cottage charm

  • 5 of 5

This is such a charming and comfortable place to stay. The location is perfect for relaxing, taking walks on the beach, viewing nature and watching the sky turn colors for both sunrise and sunset. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life, this secret place on the Forgotten Coast will soothe your soul.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful place the end of October for a week. It was all that we could have asked for.

We especially enjoyed the screened in porch from where we watched dolphins play almost every day. The home was very nice and had everything we could have wanted in supplies. The beach was just literally steps away and we walked along it in near seclusion. If you are searching for a time of quiet and relaxation then Alligator Point is certainly for you and this house a perfect spot. This was our first time to the area and we appreciated the owner's prompt replies to emails and questions. Even though Hurricane Hermine had done damage to nearby properties and nearby road, the home was untouched and in it we found a place of quiet rest. We definitely would stay here again and would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Alligator Point area.

Located just South of Tallahassee, Alligator Point is a non-commercial beach made up of single family vacation homes. There are no commercial enterprises(other than the marina) on the peninsula. Most the time you feel like you have a private beach all to yourself. It's like taking a step back in time.

There is ample wildlife to observe, miles of beach to explore and close to restaurants and shopping. The fishing is great right off the beach or on any number of charter boats in nearby Panacea or Carrabelle. It is adjacent to a State Park and federal wildlife area with picnic areas and hiking trails. Also, Wakulla Springs State Park, the Panacea Gulf Aquarium and the pre-Civil War port town of Apalachicola are all terrific day trips.
