About the property

5/3 Bayfront!. Amazing Views! Minutes From Beaches/bring your boat!

Welcome to this three story gulf/bay front paradise! From the moment you arrive, you will know you entered pure luxury. Take the custom elevator right to the top floor where you will find a spacious living room with beautiful custom sectional and plenty of seating to take in the incredible panoramic views of the bay! The 3rd floor also boasts an incredible wraparound deck with outdoor grill, fire-pit seating and even a top sun deck to really enjoy the sun and miles of gulf views in every direction. A gourmet, granite kitchen awaits you on the 3rd floor as well, with high end appliances and everything you'll need for your time away. A comfortable yet stylish dining room right off the kitchen opens to the deck as well to allow you to enjoy your meals while watching the dolphins which make nearly daily appearances right in the bay. The third floor also houses one of the house's 5 bedrooms (with 2 bunk beds, sleeping 4). The second floor has 4 bedrooms, sleeping 10 (King, queen, queen, bunk, day bed with trundle). 2 gorgeous bathrooms on 2nd floor as well. A huge custom appointed closet is located in the master with double vanities and a extra large shower (multiple shower heads in the master bath).

Your own private dock awaits you as well, just perfect to fish or crab from. Double boat lifts are perfect for the avid boats men and fishermen!

Truly, every effort has been made to make this the luxurious and comfortable gulf front getaway you've been waiting for!

This area offers unbelievably great fishing, whether you pick the bay, deep-sea fishing or the river (fresh water). Being able to have your boat right at your dock is a huge plus! Unload your daily catch right at your own private dock!

Need a break from reeling in all those fish? How about a round of golf? St. James Bay is about 15 miles away on Hwy. 98 in Carrabelle. This 18-hole championship course is sure to challenge you while providing gorgeous fairways and scenic paths throughout.

But we all know you can't fully enjoy a water front getaway without a trip or two to the beach and we happen to have some of the very best. Mashes Sands Beach is just a few minute walk from the house. It offers a beautiful, small beach and a fishing pier. The beach is located on the bay and it's calm shallow waters offer safety for small children and a great opportunity for shelling. If you want a wide, luxurious beach experience, head down to Alligator Point and Bald Point State Park (about 7 mi.). Almost every water activity is possible there: sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, you name it!

Need a break from all that fun in the sun? How about an afternoon in quaint Carrabelle or Apalachicola, with its cute shops and awesome oysters! Those are just a short drive west along the gulf, but if you'd prefer to stay even closer to the house, there are glass bottom boat tours or take the kids to the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab where they can enjoy the touch tanks and see the gulf wildlife right before their very eyes!

You'll have had a full day, but if you decide to head out for dinner, rest assured, you're in good hands. Locally caught seafood is prepared in the many fine restaurants located in Panacea, Carrabelle, and Apalachicola. If you prefer to cook it yourself, fresh shrimp, oysters, and the catch of the day are available in the seafood houses dotted along the coast.

Just Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing vacation home we have stayed at yet. The pictures on the website do not do justice to this house. The location was around other houses but we felt completely private. 2 screened in porches facing the bay with a widow’s walk on the top floor. The views from this house are incredible.

We had 8 people staying there and extra room for more. Very clean and well stocked. The elevator helped haul groceries up to the 3rd floor kitchen and was very much appreciated when it came time to pack up and haul everything down to the cars. The owner is more than helpful and was easy to contact when needed.

Claudia, thank you so much for letting us stay in your house and we will surely be back!

Wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was great! We had seven adults and seven children, and had more than enough room. The location is perfect for a relaxing vacation with amazing views. The photos on line doesn't do the home justice, their great but, the home is sooo much better!!!! The beaches are just a few minutes away and the fishing is just outside your door. We spent the mornings at home enjoying our family the afternoons at the beach and fished into the night. Thank you for sharing your lovely home it was a perfect vacation.

Incredible home, stunning views, and great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

I booked this rental with my parents for my graduation weekend for my family to get away from the buzz of Tallahassee and have a nice time. The views are breathtaking and the home is fully furnished to every detail, even provided paper towels. The only thing we had to bring was our clothes, toiletries, and food. The house was clean, no dust, and all of the bedding was fresh. The views from the top verandah were stunning, that is where I spent most of my time. Its the perfect place for a large family, there was an abundance of beds, even for a party of 12 - it was perfectly comfortable. I can't believe people spend $500 a night at a cramped hotel during graduation weekend when a little extra drive could get you a spectacular house like this.

Claudia was so gracious in arranging our stay - my parents were skeptical since it was their first time using VRBO and came to visit to make sure the house was just as advertised. Claudia was easy to reach and quick to reply and arrange a viewing which surpassed all of our expectations.

The only regret we had was not being able to spend more days at this amazing house. Thank you Claudia!

Dear Claudia,

Just want you to know we had a wonderful time in your rental home. The house, simply put, is spectacular. The views are nothing short of amazing. All our guest enjoyed themselves tremendously. Just so others know, the house is equipped with everything you need. We saw the amazing sunrises and the stunning sunsets. Best of all, we saw the dolphins every day! Just loved it!

Will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet and peaceful. House is really really nice for the price. Have paid much more for much smaller places. Love that the owner provided the necessities (salt, pepper, sugar, ketchup, coffee, filters, etc.) so we didn't have to buy everything ourselves. We own a VRBO in Destin and do the same thing. We brought a boat and had a blast. Will definitely be back. Booked already!

Owner's Response: Glad you found your vacation peaceful. We always do too down there. And I'm always happy to provide basic staples. It helps so you have just a few necessities before hitting the grocery. Happy to see you've rebooked :)

Stunning views! Very relaxing!!

Only got to spend a few nights but already booked gain for December! The views are outrageous. House was so pretty and the owner bent over backwards with restaurant help, directions to beaches, groceries, etc. Just can't imagine staying in a hotel when you can stay here! Thanks, Claudia!!!
