Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Carrabelle - Bluewater Breeze

1 hour south of Tallahassee, 1.3 miles from the beach

Looking for a compromise between OUTSTANDING FISHING opportunities and a LAVISH BEACH RETREAT? Look no further. Come be our guests at "Bluewater Breeze", we've got everything you need for an awesome vacation.

Our condo is a 1 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 story unit in "Pirate's Landing", a recent development on the secluded area of Timber Island. Don't let the 1 bedroom fool you, it will sleep 6 very comfortably, with a queen size bed in the master and two premium sleeper sofas with cloudcoil technology ( these are not ordinary sleepers, 8 inch hybrid coil/inflatable mattresses with adjustable firmness ). Professionally decorated with a fun beach vibe, and luxury furnishings, you will feel pampered the minute you open the door. Sumptuous bedding awaits you after a day of fun in the sun.

A wonderful location with the CLOSEST ACCESS point to the inlet of the Carrabelle river, only MINUTES FROM THE GULF. Carrabelle offers some very unusual benefits that have strong appeal to fishermen, families, and snowbirds alike. Just over a mile gets you to beautiful Carrabelle Beach with lush sand, clear water, and "NO WAVES", perfect for the youngsters playing in the shallows, with plenty of sea life to find. The uncrowded beach is equally well suited for just relaxing with a book. A 3 mile boat ride (or water taxi) will take you across the bay to a RESTRICTED ACCESS BEACH WONDERLAND called "Dog Island" that can only be reached by boat or plane. Pristine beaches with great shelling await its visitors. Launch a kayak right from the property and get lost in a natural maze of tidal creeks surrounding Timber Island. Want another adventure? Take a sunset boat cruise up the river to see some beautiful homes and eventually some gorgeous marshlands. Make sure to bring a camera or your favorite bottle of wine for an unforgettable journey into "old Florida and the Forgotten Coast".

PRIME FISHING AREAS ARE MINUTES AWAY. Unlike other parts of the Big Bend region, QUALITY OFFSHORE FISHING and diving are found WITHIN 10 miles making for easy boat rides and small fuel bills. New to the area and want to catch fish? No problem! Our guest book has some of OUR FAVORITE FISHING SPOTS with GPS #'s included so you don't have to spend your whole vacation searching for spots. We also include some cool recommendations of places to go that only the locals know.

"Bluewater Breeze" immediately overlooks the pool (literally 30 feet away), so you can be within easy reach of your kids while still relaxing on the screened in patio or one of the two balconies. We can help you plan your vacation with an extensive list of activity recommendations for all ages in the guest book. Fishing, Diving, Hiking, Kayaking, Shelling, Boating, Beachcombing, Birdwatching, or just lounging at the pool, we've got it all. Carrabelle is an ideal base camp for several day trips in all directions, including Apalachicola ( 18 miles) St George island (22 miles) Port st Joe (45 miles) Cape San Blas (50 miles) Wakulla Springs (40 miles) . During the cooler months the condominiums transform into a very quiet and peaceful area that has been very attractive to snowbirds to escape the northerly chill. We even have a WWII museum that shouldn't be missed. Come wet a line and get some sand between yuour toes at "Bluewater Breeze" You're going to LOVE IT HERE!!

About Abby and Steve Hale

Abby and I have two children Savannah (10) and Callie (8) and we are all water enthusiasts. Callie believes that she is 1/2 mermaid. We are certified divers and love fishing, spearfishing, and sailing. We live in rural Lake City, and live on a farm with horses, chickens and dogs.

Abby and Steve Hale purchased this condo in 2015

Why Abby and Steve Hale chose Florida

Carrabelle offers an amazing variety of outdoor activities in a laid back seaside setting. We love the short boat rides to quality fishing, and protected sailing areas. It is also a perfect base camp for many great adventures a short drive away.

What makes this condo unique

Bluewater breeze offers a unique experience for many different travelers. The fishing family has ultimate convenience with onsite boat ramp and easy access to the gulf. The explorer family has excellent kayak opportunities in "Tates Hell" area up the river, and awesome exploring at Dog Island if you have boat access. The beachgoers have an excellent private local beach just over a mile away and a world renowned beach 22 miles away at St George Island. Wakulla springs is another adventure within a 45 minute drive. Apalachicola is a short day trip at 18 miles, and has the best oysters in the country with some unique shops to check out. Cape San Blas is 45 minutes away with some incredible beaches. Our condo is the perfect base camp for making some awesome memories.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this lovely condo. It is beautifully decorated and the bed and sofa beds are very comfortable. The location was nice and we enjoyed visiting beaches in the area such as St. George Island and we drove to Cape San Blas. We enjoyed the town of Apalachicola as well with its shops and restaurants. The kids loved the pool and spa! Great place to vacation! Thank you Steve and Abby!

Perfect pit stop!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property for two nights on route to central Florida. The location was perfect! Sleepy little community and an atmosphere that offers a little R&R! The kitchen was fully stocked...actually above and beyond fully stocked. The owners were super nice and quick to reach or reply with any questions or comments. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend the property! Thank you!

very comfortable nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was decorated fun for the beach with nice upgrades. Beds were all very comfortable. The ac worked great and we were very comfortable. This area was new to us so we enjoyed discovering the whole area from Panacea to Appalachicola. Carrabelle was very small sleepy community but a nice change from high traffic touristy areas we have been before. We would come back to this condo - owners were accessible if we needed them and seemed very accomodating.

Just like home, except with beach access.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and great time at Steve and Abby's condo. They have made it very homey and inviting. We enjoyed the pool that is on the grounds as well as being minutes away from several beaches, including Carrabelle Beach. If you are not into large crowds, but still want a great place to play on the beach and even watch the sunset, then this is the place you want to visit. Several local places that had great food and great service was Carrabelle Junction, Two Bros, Hog Wild BBQ, and The Fisherman's Wife. We also toured the local historic light houses, the WWII museum, and we stop by to visit with a local gentleman that builds things out of glass bottles, like a small one room house, a birthday cake and a tower. We drove over to St. George's Island, rode bikes one day, rode scooters the next day and then went to the beach in the state park. Aunt Ebby's ice cream was a favorite to help us cool down. We enjoyed eating at the Blue Parrot, B.J.'s Pizza, and the Beach Pit. I will be recommending Steve and Abby's place to anyone who will be visiting this wonderful historic area.

Beautifully decorated condo looking over the pool

  • 5 of 5

Clean and neat condo with beautiful decor. We loved our stay at the Bluewater Breeze condo over the 4th of July holiday. The owners went beyond most to make sure we were welcomed with a basket of treats, a book with places to visit, and things to do. I definitely recommend staying here. We hope to visit again next year. :D

WWII museum preserving Carrabelle's history as the primary training center for the Normandy invasion on D-Day. 3 miles to Crooked River lighthouse with a 138 step climb to the top with breathtaking views. 3 miles to Tate's Hell forest trails for hiking and bird watching. 25 miles to Apalachicola for the freshest oysters on the planet. 9 miles to St James Bay golf club ( open to public). 1 hour to Tallahassee for shopping and tons of events year round. Great restaurants all within 2 miles serving delicious locally caught seafood in a very laid back setting (shrimp boats bring in the catch are just across the river from the condos).
