Alligator Point house description
This 3,400 square foot five bedroom, four bath Gulf front luxury home recently completed in September of 2006 and is new to the rental market. It is located South of Tallahassee, Florida at Alligator Point, Florida on the Gulf of Mexico, just 40 minutes from the Tallahassee Airport.
This comfortable and spacious beachfront home is available March through August only.
The house features granite countertops, tile throughout the bathrooms including floors and showers, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors in the main downstairs living area and wall to wall carpet throughout the second level, beginning at the stairs. Four of the five bedrooms have water views.
There are two decks facing the Gulf of Mexico. The first floor deck is screened in and can easily seat 12 people and offers a panoramic view of the coast. This screened in porch is just yards from the water allowing anyone on the porch eye contact with family members on the beach. The second floor balcony is open air with a railing and is situated directly off both master bedrooms.
The first level has a large family-sized kitchen opening to a large family room and formal dining area, (all in one room facing the beach). This floor also includes a full private bath, a guest bedroom and a large laundry room.
The second Level has two master bedrooms, with king size beds and private baths, face the beach. The two upstairs guest bedrooms have queen size beds and share a bath with a bathtub\shower. The downstairs bedroom (on the dining room kitchen level) is next to the downstairs full bath.
If you enjoy beautiful, white clean sand on a quiet beach, easy access to the marina and hopefully good fishing, you will not be disappointed.
Hope you enjoy our house as much as we have. Please call us if we can answer any questions or book your reservation.

A great place to relax
A great place to relax
We were a family group of three adult couples. The house was more than adequate with the primary feature being the open plan kitchen/living area. This allowed everyone to spread out and do their own thing while all being together. Of course when the weather was cool enough, time was spent on the porch overlooking the beach or on the beach itself, which is one of the better ones. The loquation of the property was ideal allowing long beach walks in both directions. The condition of the house was very good and everything worked. The owners have been very easy to communicate with, answering all questions we had. A few comments: There are many crabs, especially at night and a lot of grass-like seaweed at certain times. These may be seasonal. For those that like a sunrise/sunset over the water - you will not see these from the property or beach. We highly recommend this vacation rental and consider it to be good value.

This is a wonderful house for a family vacation! I just completed my third vacation at Alligator Point and my second time staying at Seaside Retreat. The house easily accommodates my kids and grandkids and offers all the amenities of home. I like that with this home, we are steps away from the ocean. But aside from the fabulous home, the best part is the unspoiled beach, dazzling ocean and numerous "old-school" activities like walking the beach, picking up shells, photographing the amazing sunsets and actually talking to the family!! I highly recommend this home and look forward to our next trip to Alligator Point.

We have been going to Alligator Point for family vacations since our children were small. Our family has now grown to include grandchildren, so we required a larger home this summer. I can't say enough about this beautiful beach home! It was spacious, well appointed and so comfortable for every family member. I can't think of one thing that could have made this house any better. The entire family loved our stay here. We cannot wait to go back again!

Amazing house on beautiful beaches!

We were completly WOWed by this lovely house. The photos do not even do it justice! Tons of open air space on the main level was perfect for the beachy atmosphere. It is on a great spot on the beach, fairly secluded and lovely neighbors. We had an issue with one of our kids breaking a tabletop candleholder. Angela, the owner, was very easy to deal with and we received our deposit back minus a reasonable breakage fee. We really appreciated that. We would love to stay again!

This house is magnificent. We had a large group attend including nine adults and five children; this place has more than enough room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautiful and the great room is much larger than the pictures lead you to believe. The hardwood floors, the massive kitchen with granite countertops and the large dining area were all add bonuses in this brilliant home. My family and I were looking for a place to get away to, a place where we could unwind from our busy lives, where there are no large resorts, no busy streets, no wild college students, and a place where our children could play and be safe. The Seaside Retreat exceeded all of our expectations. This place is a true beach oasis with all the comforts of home. In addition to the location and the wonderful accommodations, the beach was perfect. The owners have gone and continue to go the extra mile to make sure that your vacation is perfect.

This was our 8th year going to Alligator Point for vacation and we have stayed in many of the houses available. This house was the best one we have stayed in by far. We had 6 adults and 6 young adults and this house was so spacious and accommodated everyone's needs and wants. The interior was comfortable and inviting, we felt right at home. The view from the house to the beach was stunning. The fishing was also really good as we caught lots of Spanish Mackerel and Spotted Sea Trout for a wonderful fish fry our last night there. But the highlight of the trip was when we caught a 15lb 32 inch Red fish. We definitely want to come back to Seaside Retreat for our future visits and highly recommend this house to anyone looking to visit this piece of paradise.

This is a really nice house with great beach access. Our group included 6 adults (1 disabled) and 4 kids, and this place worked for EVERYBODY - easy to get around in, lots of gathering space, plenty of privacy, and a super kitchen with everything we could have possibly needed. The owners were really attentive and easy to deal with. One of our best vacations ever!

This house is awesome!! Very clean, neat, comfortable, and inviting. Beach access is great and very simple. The beach is quiet with very few people. If you are looking to avoid the beach crowds and not have to 'mark your territory' at 6:00a.m., then this is the place. The owners are very responsive and seem genuinely concerned that renters are comfortable. The water is not like PCB but the sand is great and the house and lack of crowds outweighs the water color. NO JELLYFISH!! We will definately consider this as one of our future beach destinations. The house can comfortably accomodate two mid size families. We had a total of 12 with four adults and 8 kids. Plenty of room for group time and alone time.

This is the most fabulous beach home anyone could be invited to visit. The wood floors are lovely and the openess adds the beach flavor. Tastefully decorated. The porch off the two master suites is a great place to have morning coffee as well as the screened porch. Just a great time had by all
