Apalachicola and St George Island are about 35 miles to the west.

We loved it and will be back.

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at the home, the beach and even taking on an FSU game. The grandchildren were on the beach much of Sunday and Monday, and told their parents they wanted to stay longer. In the evenings they played on the screen porch and the lower level inside. It worked well.

The home was well appointed and very comfortable. We have discussed that we would come back to this home and St Teresa area again.

A suggestion would be to detail TV and remotes, although kids who a dish figured it out.

Thanks for sharing your home with us , Bill Kooymans

In short, it's awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year for our group of 4 couples to stay at this wonderful home. And we'll almost certainly be back. It's just a great house, wonderful view and beach, and very nice owners. Plenty of room for each couple. Location is unbelievable - basically your own private beach. The sunrise views are incredible from the second story porch. Sit back and soak it all in or take a morning walk on the beach. You won't regret it. We highly recommend it!!

Perfect location for what our family needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the amount of people we had (8). Due to the family dynamics and age of the grandkids (early 20’s), we had to spread out a bit. Everyone had privacy when wanted, two family rooms allowed for space, two kitchens for extra storage of food and drinks. We did not want the touristy atmosphere on this trip and this place did not fail. If you’re looking for parasailing and tiki bars with obnoxious music and the nightlife, this isn’t for you. If you’re looking for spectacular seafood and quiet beauty with dolphins in the backdrop, then this is it.

Heaven on Earth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 8 children really enjoyed staying in this stunning home at such a gorgeous location. This was the first time our family has visited the gulf so we had multiple questions from the wildlife to local clinics should the need arise. Ann was quick with responses and answered every question we had which gave us such a peace of mind. We felt immediately "at home" as soon as we entered the house. The pictures do not do the home justice and there was more than plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed meals together in the upstairs kitchen as well as on the deck off of the kitchen. I enjoyed my morning coffee watching the sunrise from the deck. We spent a lot of time just taking in the stunning views. There was a gorgeous view from each of the beach side rooms, which is all except 1 room. Twice daily we'd watch the dolphins swim by from either on the beach or on the upstairs deck, it was such a treat! We really enjoyed the outdoor showers to wash the kids down-what a fabulous idea to get the sand off! The beds were comfortable, the house was fully stocked with plenty of towels, dishes, and appliances. We enjoyed the ping pong table inside the screened porch, and we all got a kick out of using the kayak! The children had never kayaked before so it was a first that they will always remember. The beach was amazing and we spent hours each night searching the tide pools! The sand was so white that my 5yo kept telling us we had "sugar" on us! We found crabs, sting rays, tons of fish, sand dollars, oysters, and sea cucumbers. It was a fascinating experience for all of us! We truly enjoyed the secluded feel and knowing we did not have to camp out for sand space, we at most saw about 10-15 other people a day! The beach and water were beautiful to experience, but I really cannot say enough about the home and hospitality Scott and Ann provided. We would love to come and stay again, thank you so much for sharing your home with us! ~Cheryl
