Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We really enjoyed our stay. We left about 7:00 am Wed. morning, and left the sheets and towels that we used on top of the washing machine, as we did not have time to wash and dry them before we left. We did dry the towels so they would not mildew, but they still need to be washed. The house looked great when we got there and also when we left. We took the final bag of trash with us as we left.

The guys were able to catch only 5 fish, and that was disappointing, but we had a great vacation anyway. The water was beautiful, the scenery was spectacular, and we were able to play golf a couple of times and see the caverns as well. Your friend Laura was so very helpful. She even came over and let our dog out for us when we were gone for the day. Then relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine before dinner or drowning a few worms off the lower deck made for a great day every day.

Thank you again for being such a considerate host. We hope to do this again next year.

Warm regards,

Patricia M.

October to Remember

We really loved staying here. Everything was so nice and kept so clean. It was very quiet and peaceful. The deck was great for sitting and grilling out. It was very roomy and the kitchen had the cookware needed.

Would love to stay again.

I can not thank you enough for our last minute rental. I was so pleased we had finally found a place to evacuate to, but to show up at the property and to see what a beautiful place we had rented was complete relief! Clean, inviting and even in the stressful situation we where there under very relaxing. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for our safe spot through Matthew!

The Heaven on the Chipola River was more than we could have ever imagined. The place was gorgeous and Mrs. Applewhite was a pleasure to work with. We cannot wait to go back and stay again!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Sara's house on the Chipola River exceeded our best expectations. The 3 bedroom house was very roomy, comfortable and impeccably clean. The river view was spectacular especially from the back porch and on the dock. You could not see another house from the property and felt we had this paradise all to ourselves.

We had planned to go kayaking while we were there, but unfortunately the river was too high and swift after a large amount of rain they had before we got there. We explored Torreya State Park and The Nature Conservancy preserve on the bluffs of the Apalachicola River. Hiking there was amazing and felt like we were in the mountains. The beach is only 30 miles away, so this was the perfect spot to explore this area of the Florida Panhandle.

Wish we could have stayed longer, in fact we all agreed that we were going to come back to Sara's beautiful home.

Thank you Sarah for all your help and recommendations.
