Darrell and Robin Liford purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Darrell and Robin Liford chose Carrabelle

The Million Dollar view, of course! We love the area as it is not commercial and the area is a quaint fishing village feel. Great fishing, scalloping, boating and kayaking and sightseeing.....lighthouses, quaint towns, beautiful day trips!

What makes this bungalow unique

Some the best fishing on the Gulf! Only 45 minutes to Tallahassee!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect Getaway!


3186 Hwy 98 E, Carrabelle, FL, 32322, United States

This condo is beautifully decorated and very roomy. It has everything that you could possibly want or need. The view of the water is unbelievable and the sunrise was awesome. Loved that is was right there by the water. The pier is really nice too. Great place for a family vacation or for a get together with friends. The drive along the shoreline is beautiful too. Best place we have stayed yet!

Beautiful, well-appointed house with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

Cute beach decor. Lots of open space. 3 bedrooms, plus an aerobed and several couches and recliners -- plenty of room for our group of 5. Extra large dining table. Kitchen well stocked with cookware and appointments. Our only disappointment was the smell that sometimes wafted from the muck outside, but this wasn't even a consistent problem. No beach access, but only a short drive to several beaches (I chose St. George Island). Gorgeous views from the two decks. We felt right at home and had a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at A-ROO-BA on the Gulf! Our condo maintenance team has worked on removing the seaweed to eleviate the smell. It apparently was blown up on the bank from Tropical Storm Alberto last month. It normally does not smell. We love to go to St. George Island beach as well.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Everyone was so impressed with the condo. Furnishing, decorations, cleanliness was all perfect!

We looked at several homes and other locations but this condo had an elevator which we needed!

Beautiful place!

Great property terrible ownership

  • 1 of 5

This was a nice condo with a neat location. It wasn't the cleanest when we got there, but we didn't complain because the owner had told us he would refund the charged cleaning fee when we left if we cleaned up as well. We spent a ton of time cleaning the morning we left and rushing to be out by 11. At 11 we had cleaned everything and the only left was the last dishes in the dishwasher and remake the beds since the sheets had not finished drying. I reached out to the owner and asked what to do with no response til the afternoon. She said she would have liked the beds made, but would ask her cleaning person what they would charge to just do that. I immediately offered to run back by and finish, yet she never replied. After emailing a couple times I finally got a response and she refused to refund the cleaning fee and will not refund my damage deposit. They are dishonest and unwilling to professionally communicate. Do not stay at this one. There are several right next to it that are vacation rentals.

Owner's Response: The condo was perfectly clean and "guest ready" when this guest arrived. The guest wanted me to refund the cleaning fee, however, she did not leave the condo in "guest ready" condition (I have pictures) and I had to pay my housekeeper to clean up after them and make the condo "guest ready" to my standards. She is angry with me.
