You will not regret getting "Aweigh at Last!"... and, as its name implies, our Gulf front home is just what you need if you are looking for a relaxing get-away in a beautifully decorated home on a pristine, peaceful beach.
We have just completed the finishing touches on our brand new home and you can be one of the first to stay here.
You will love the convenient beach front location with private, ramped boardwalk as well as the variety of amenities inside and out.
Our 3 bedroom, 2 & 1/2 bath home accommodates 6 to 7 people.
There are spectacular views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island from almost every room in the house or from its screened porch & sundeck.
We provide linens, beach towels, beach chairs & other beach equipment, soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, WiFi, cable, free long-distance and much, much, MORE!
The GROUND LEVEL has ample COVERED PARKING (enough for 3 or 4 cars or boats, depending on size) and is where there is a STORAGE ROOM with a plentiful supply of BEACH EQUIPMENT including: beach chairs & rafts, a beach cart, umbrella, beach toys and much MORE, that are provided for your convenience. There is also an OUTDOOR SHOWER, a FISH SINK & station & outdoor charcoal GRILL.
The PRIVATE BOARDWALK to the beach is completely ramped which makes it easy to roll the beach cart or strollers with little ones directly to the beach.
The FIRST LIVING LEVEL has a large SUN DECK and a SCREENED PORCH that spans the entire front of the home. The screened porch is equipped with dining table and ceiling fans that make it easy to DINE 'AL FRESCO" while enjoying the views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island... or you may just want to curl up on the porch and read a book or take a nap!
In addition, the first level includes the LIVING AREA with comfortable seating, 42-inch flat-screen TV & stereo; the DINING AREA which has a slate & wood high-top table; a HALF-BATH; and the UTILITY ROOM with full-sized stacked washer & dryer. The fully-equipped KITCHEN has granite counter tops, undermount sink, stainless steel appliances as well as a KUERIG & regular coffee maker, CROCK POT and more!
The TOP LIVING LEVEL has 3 BEDROOMS and 2 FULL BATHS. In addition to its gorgeous Gulf view, the master bedroom has a very comfortable KING BED, 32-inch flat-screen TV & en-suite bath with tile floors and tub/shower combo. The two guest bedrooms have queen beds, ceiling fans and incredible VIEWS OF THE GULF AND ST. VINCENTS ISLAND. The front guest bedroom has a 32-inch flat-screen TV.
To provide for the 7th guest, the full-sized sofa may be made up to sleep on. (There is also an inflatable mattress if you would prefer that instead.)
As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can find a variety of SEASHELLS to collect or just enjoy watching the DOLPHINS swimming by or EAGLES and OSPREY scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, sunbathing or fishing in the surf are always a favorite, too.
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, - a great place for families with children, a couples romantic retreat or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!
You may want to rent a bike or golf cart and cruise quietly through the streets or on the beach. HORSEBACK RIDING on the beach can also be conveniently arranged. There are also KAYAKS to rent if you would like to paddle to nearby St. Vincents Island.
Dinner is right out your door: you can FISH OR CRAB from the shore. SCALLOPING in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies can be enjoyed on your vacation or frozen for later when you return home.
In addition, the famous INDIAN PASS RAW BAR is just a couple of miles up the road where you can enjoy the area's delicious oysters, other seafood and a cold drink. Weekends at the Raw Bar often feature outdoor live entertainment and dancing.
Our area is reminiscent of 'Old Florida.' There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere near by! Our BEACHES ARE VERY QUIET AND PRISTINE and, in the off-season, you will rarely encounter anyone as you stroll quietly along the beach!
Our home is located on Indian Pass, just a couple of miles east from Cape San Blas - which has been rated in the top five of the best beaches in the United States. Port St. Joe is only 10 miles to the west where you can stock up on all of the provisions you'll need. If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. A golf course is only a few miles away and there are 4 separate boat ramps within 15 miles.
Just 20 minutes to the east is the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many wonderful restaurants and night spots. In addition, you can walk along the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day.
We invite you to get away from it all at "AWEIGH AT LAST!"
