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.

The home is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time. SummerCamp Beach is located in the pristine 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!

Beautiful home, lovely location, wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed (11) nights at Fiddler on the Reef and were so elated to have found this serene spot. The home is beautifully decorated and the bountiful views and comfortable furniture call one to restoration. It was fun to walk to low tide beach areas and gawk at all of the creatures. The pelicans, egrets, cormorants were in abundance and kept us amused. We enjoyed exploring the area - St. George, Apalachicola, and a myriad of other beaches. The bonus? The kindness of the homeowner and the fantastic "Endless Summer" development amenities!

Perfect place for us....

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing time at Fiddler on the Reef! The house was beautifully decorated and not having several steep stairs was a plus for us as we have 2 senior fur babies. Perfect place for a quiet winter getaway. We will be back!

Clean Coastal Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was extremely clean and well appointed. Our family of 6 had a great time exploring the beach and relaxing by the awesome pool which was just a short walk from the house. This was an excellent choice for our long fall weekend. We would definitely stay here again.
