The Coastal Retreat will blow your mind, and make you never want to go back to the "Real World" !!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and family thoroughly enjoyed our rental experience at ‘The Coastal Retreat’ in Carrabelle, Florida. The residence was spacious and very clean. Every detail of the house invited awe, from the extreme vaulted ceilings to the sleep number beds. We enjoyed the spacious outdoor deck to eat breakfast, and to entertain our large family visiting the same area. I have to say this… “Location, Location, Location !!!” The residence is about 6 miles outside the town of Carrabelle, which gave us the privacy we wanted, and the close access to stores and restaurants. There is what we came to call the “Beach Closet”, downstairs – this had an abundance of beach chairs, beach toys for kids (buckets and shovels, etc.), and, even, fishing gear. There was an additional refrigerator in the Beach Closet, which made a nice place to store cold drinks for easy access when “beaching it”. There were 2 kayaks ready for use, as well, out back. With the 100’ of private beach, we let our children run anytime, playing and having the time of their lives. At high tide, the area waters were only about 3 feet deep, making it a safe place for our smaller children, and at low tide, the sand bars and waves were a treat. We also had our family over for a fire pit on the beach, as there was a table and 6 chairs, as well as, multiple log seating for all our invited guests – it was a hit !! The house had dish service for about 25 people, and the kitchen had all updated appliances. The 2 bathrooms were beautifully tiled and unbelievable in appearance was a lifesaver. Our experience has us ready to schedule our next stay at the same time next year !! 5 Stars !!!

beautiful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I personally hate the beach. I was out numbered and everyone wanted to go this year. I really did not think I would enjoy any part of this trip, but I was pleasantly surprised. The house was plenty big for 8 of us. (4 adults/4 children). The waves were very calm since they are blocked by the islands out front. One of the few days I went down to the beach we say stingrays. That alone made the trip for me. There is not many shells because all the hermit crabs have taken them, but the peace and quiet and there not being crowds of people made that up. If shelling is what you are after, there are other places you can visit for that. The house is well stocked on kitchen basics. Grocery store being 4 miles up the road, you never have to eat out if you don't want to.

I am a mountain person, but if I ever go back to the beach it will be right here!!!!

The Ultimate Relaxing Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all...convenience to traditional beach activities on St George Island, great shopping and dining in Appalachacola, and water sports and wildlife around the house. Hiking in the state park across the street, swimming in the surf on St George, kayaking around the bay...there wasn't one bit of it we didn't enjoy. We tried some of everything on our first trip, and headed home relaxed and restored. The home is wonderfully furnished and Nikola is responsive to any questions or needs. Our family will definitely stay here again and look forward to exploring the area further. Thanks for a great vacation!
