Overview

About the property

"Fiddler on the Reef" is a quaint Florida style cottage is full of character and charm. Views of the Gulf of Mexico can be seen from the kitchen, dining area, living room, and front bedroom. Perfect for families, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage has an open living concept. The master bedroom has a luxurious king bed and en-suite bath. The guest bedroom includes a queen bed and views of the gulf. The bunk room is perfect for children of all ages with 4 bunks and room to play.

A combination living/dining space allows for a large gathering place with a flat screen tv over the fireplace. The open kitchen with its stainless steel appliances and granite counters will inspire the chef in everyone. The front porch is the gathering place for anytime of day. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch with spectacular sunrises over the gulf. Unwind after a day of fishing, shelling, kayaking, and swimming with cool breezes and a cold drink. There is even an outdoor shower to rinse off the sand.

This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed. SummerCamp Beach is located in the beach community of St. Teresa, Fl. Approximately 45 miles south of Tallahassee, we are miles from everywhere, but still close enough to conveniences. We believe we have the most beautiful coastal community in all of Florida.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family and friends is possible. If you love getting away to a simpler time, this place is for you. Once you discover SummerCamp Beach, you will realize this is something you should have done long ago. Just make sure to adjust your watches...this is a place where time doesn't actually stop, but it sure gets a little break!

Great place for family fun.

  • 4 of 5

The overall experience was great.

Pros: Quiet atmosphere, good fishing, nice pool, friendly people.

Cons: Beach shore was not clean near the condo, clean beach was about a mile away, power went out twice during our stay and one time was for several hours(not sure of the cause of the outtage of if this is normal or not bc there were not storms)

Great Cottage out in Nature

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is exactly as pictured. Perfect furnishings, great layout. Is like “glamping “- fine accommodations out in nature! 30 minutes to beautiful St George Island beaches, fishing village Carrabelle close by Appalachicola has lots to offer, lighthouse, more. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch at sunset & hearing the birds, crickets & frogs sing. Very peaceful. Community pool is nice. Be prepared to drivefor food- hit the grocery on the way in for necessities. Places close early but seafood is incredible - try The Pearle( limited hours), Angelos, el Jalisco ( even for breakfast ). We hope to come back!

Very peaceful and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 4 day stay at “Fiddler on the Reef”. As this was one of our first VRBO experiences, we loved how simple and smooth the whole booking process went. Erika was very responsive and provided detailed information and updates. The cottage is nicely located on this peaceful part of the Florida coast. The interior is very well maintained, spacious and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and the grill worked great. The back screened-in patio was really enjoyable for dinner as the sun sets. Really nice place to just wind down for a few days.
