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!

Amazing!!! Quiet!! Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away when we arrived. The community is small, quiet, beautiful views. The house was immaculate and decorated to perfection. The kitchen provided us with everything we needed to cook daily. The front deck is peaceful and a great place for morning coffee while you view the ocean. The master bed was as comfortable as my bed at home. Beautiful master shower with cobble stone base. The back deck provided us with somewhere to store our beach items. The outdoor shower was perfect after a day at the beach. Our 4 and 1 year old stood by the door ever minute just waiting to walk down to the water. The low tide was a great time for us to walk out and enjoy the ocean with our kids and dogs. We found beautiful shells, saw hermit crabs, and blue crabs. My 4 year old caught quite a few fish too. We only ate out once at the Pearle which was wonderful. It doesn't look like much but the food is amazing. Ericka made sure to let us know she was available and answered questions quickly. You cannot go wrong staying here. It's away from the hustle and bustle and allows you to relax. Just what we needed.

Very clean and very well stocked!

Saw a bear the first night! Pool was very nice. St. George Island had beautiful beaches and wasn't a terrible drive. Overall, great experience.
