Shell Point mobile home description

Only minutes from the Apalachee Bay and spectacular fishing, our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee) is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, 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 (2 boat slips) located on a deep-water canal, which is just two canals over from the boat launch. We offer 1600 sq. feet of spacious living quarters, featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen, large sun room and screened-in porch. The family room is a large open space with a fireplace, and is furnished with comfortable den furniture, 32in TV, dining furniture and bar seating. Our master bedroom adjoins the sun room and offers a magnificent view of the canal. In the summer and winter, the sun room is a perfect place to kick back, relax, and observe the natural habitat of the bay.


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.

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.

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 mile from Bare Footing. 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.

                                      Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. It is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital).
