Shell Point mobile home description

Only minutes away from world-class speckled trout fishing waters, our 3 bedroom vacation home is located on the Apalachee Bay in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee). This 1492 sq. ft. modular home is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, with a community swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is a boat dock located on a deep-water canal, which is just one canal over from the boat launch. The living quarters feature 3 bedrooms, 2 baths (master has a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower), family 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 (42' TV, VCR, DVD, 300 Disc CD), comfortable den furniture, pool table and bar area. The dining area is surrounded by sliding glass doors and windows, offering a beautiful view of the canal. Kick back on the screened-in porch and enjoy our laid back paradise!

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 red fish 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. Shell Point is a 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 1/4 mi. from 'Dock of the Bay'. 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.

                              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). 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 (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU). If you are interested in fishing (trout, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, cobia, flounder, grouper, black bass ... it's saltwater fishing, so the list goes on), boating, or ... if you just want to escape to a relaxing, laid back paradise; yet, be able to venture into the city on a whim, this is the perfect location for you.

                              Other Activities: bird watching, photography, shooting pool

                              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.
