Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Horseshoe Beach - Horseshoe Beach Red Roof

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 12-14)

This is a family-friendly home at Horseshoe Beach located on the Gulf with breathtaking views! The home is very spacious so everyone has room to enjoy their vacation.

The great room has two sitting areas for families to enjoy sunsets, observe wildlife and watch for boats to arrive with the day's catch! One sitting area has a TV and the other has a cozy fireplace, a perfect reading spot. The sitting areas are divided by the fabulous dining table, which seats 12. Whether cooking in the kitchen, dining with family and friends, or enjoying the sitting areas, you will face the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Outside your family can enjoy mulit-level decks in peace and quiet, or play music through the surround system (exterior and interior speakers). There is a spacious deck that wraps around the main level of the home where you can enjoy the best sunset view over the Gulf of Mexico from a rocking chair! Stroll around the decks where you have a panoramic view of the city of Horseshoe

or enjoy watching wildlife. At the end of the day, your family can also unwind on the mid-level deck by grilling out, relaxing in the hot tub, or swinging on the porch swing.

Situated on a corner lot with canals on both corners, this home offers plenty of boat parking on the seawalls. On the ground floor under the house, the lighted and covered cleaning station has a fresh water sink and plenty of room for two people to clean fish. There is a bait chest freezer and extra bathroom with shower on this ground level.

For sleeping, there are 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bath on the main level of the home, in addiiton to a bonus room/loft. The master bedroom has a queen bed and french doors, leading to the wrap-around deck, with an adjoining bathroom that accesses the hallway. The second bedroom has a full bed with french doors leading to the living room. The third bedroom, located at the private end of the hallway, has a queen bed and nice windows. The fourth bedroom has a full bed and a

set of bunk beds perfect for a family or children to share. The loft /bonus room above the spacious living area offers a panoramic view of the entire coast and town and includes two full sized futons, two twin beds, and a foosball table for all to enjoy.

****Horseshoe Beach is a small fishing town with a lot to offer, but it does not have a beach as the name would leave you to believe!****

EXACTLY What We Were Looking For !

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place...highly recommended ! Four couples, in our 50's and 60's, used the Red Roof to meet for a reunion weekend. The place was PERFECT for us...

The stairs were a bit intimidating, until we discovered a freight lift to haul our bags, beer coolers, and food stuffs to the upper level.

The huge table and the well-equipped kitchen worked perfectly for us. We put the nice gas grill and grill mat to use for our "Grill Night", which is a "tradition" at our reunions.

Even though the weather could've been better, we spent most of our time out on the spacious decks, just chatting and getting caught up with each other's lives...EXACTLY what we wanted to do !!

The property manager/owner was a delight to work with...answered all my stupid questions before we arrived.

Be advised...there are no horses (that we saw !), and there is no beach, but there are a ton of birds and scenery to keep you occupied !

Also, cell phone coverage is spotty to non-existent...didn't bother us ! We just turned our cell phones off, which is why you come to a place like this in the first place ! The owners do furnish a land line, as well as wi-fi internet access, so if you CAN'T relax, and just HAVE to check your email, you can do so...

The MAS wants to make this our "permanent" annual reunion spot

Great red roof house!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to hang out and chill. We had a business meeting and "retreat" for our small engineering and consulting firm. Worked on Friday - meetings with PowerPoint presentations - great open dining area with large table to accommodate that. Played on Saturday - all day fishing on the Gulf with Johnny Squires Fishing Charter (located right in Horseshoe - highly recommended). The house was great. Very spacious and open, well maintained, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, foosball table in loft, gas grill downstairs. Has hot tub and fire pit but didn't get a chance to use those. The Horseshoe Beach Cafe cooked our catch of Red Fish and Trout and did an excellent job with that for our Saturday night dinner. We'll definitely be back!

This was a perfect escape for fishing or just plain relaxing. The house & location are perfect for families or even a group of individuals. Looking forward to booking another stay here.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was beautiful, clean and very roomy. The house was also well stocked as far as kitchen utensils and extra linens. We are already planning our next. visit. The only down side was that when the low tide was in we couldn't get our boat out.

Excellent Vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

The place was in a scenic spot and calm town.

Kitchen was fully equipped and was well maintained.

The view from the deck was excellent.

The grilling station/ swing, etc were all better than expected.

Good spot if you like to relax and enjoy the sunset from your home.

Great place to unwind

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends and my oldest son, the fishing was great and the house even better. On the 1st night my son caught a 25lb black drum in the canal at the house. The next 2 days were just as good, now my son asks monthly when we are going back. I highly recommend this home and we hope to go back soon.
