Only minutes away from world-class speckled trout fishing waters, our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home is located on the Apalachee Bay in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee). This roomy 1624 sq. ft. modular home is located in gated Shell Point Village, which has a community swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is a large boat dock (with ample room for two boats) on a deep-water canal, which is just one canal over from the boat launch at the Shell Point Marina. The living quarters feature 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, dining room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen and screened-in porch. The family room is a large, open area furnished with a fully stocked entertainment center, comfortable den furniture, pool table and dining room table. You can shoot pool and watch TV, while enjoying a beautiful view of the canal from 2 sliding glass doors that lead to the porch.

Fishing & Other Activities: For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. We have year round fishing, with different species here at different times. Trout and redfish are the most sought after fish and can be caught all year long. Tarpon are here from June till August, and cobia will show up in the early spring as the water warms and will stay until fall. Other fish that may be caught on the flats are Spanish Mackerel, blue fish, sheepshead, flounder, ladyfish and a numerous variety of sharks to 250 pounds. Many prefer to head out for deeper waters to catch grouper and snapper. For the tennis buff, there are 6 lighted tennis courts across the street from the golf course at Wakulla High School on Hwy. 98 in Medart. Shell Point is a also great place for windsurfing and hosts several Regattas each year.

Beaches: For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is about 1/2 mi. from 'Already Gone'. It is a very, very small beach located on the bay, which means that the only waves that you will see will be on a very windy day. It doesn't compare to the other two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to kick back and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets.

Wakulla Springs (10 miles away): Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the largest fresh water springs in the world, is only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. Kids love it and you will, too. The water stays the same temperature all year round. It's very refreshing in the heat of the summertime.

Located between St. Marks and Panacea, Shell Point is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city-malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport-and is well known for being the home of Florida State University and Florida A & M University.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: My name is Deborah Word. I live in Carrollton, GA, with the love of my life.

Why Shell Point:
Jerry and I started visiting Shell Point in 1998 and just fell in love with the area; not only for the fishing, but also because of the wildlife and natural habitat. The area is also ideal for our other hobby, which is photography.

The Unique Benefits at this Mobile Home:
It is so nice to have the boat dock just out the back door, so that you can be on the bay fishing in just minutes.
