Property description

Clean beach cottage with renovated kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedrooms! Relax in the living room watching the deep water canal that is your back yard! Or sit on the dock watching the sunset. Maybe a ride on the 14 -foot Carolina Skiff over to Florida's ONLY private beach....

All these options and more are yours at the cottage by the sea. The deep water canal will thrill you with the big motor and sail boats that make use of the passage for deep-water access into the gulf. Great fishing in the canal and inlet to the gulf! Enjoy the wildlife as it swims and flies past your back door!

Get ready to enjoy this very clean and cozy, renovated beach house. Galen's Retreat is a small slice of hassle-free living in the heart of Florida's Gulf Coast. Willing to trade for another vacation property.
