St. Teresa house description

St Teresa is nestled in the National Forest and is a quiet, private, secluded beach community. A true 'Eco-vacation'....our rental is located on Florida's 'Forgotten Coast' where the forest meets the beautiful Gulf water. Far from traffic and city lights Saint Teresa Beach is like Florida was 100 years ago.

Exclusive and Private Property. Two story 1600 sq ft beach house with two kitchen areas, located on the beach with central AC/Heat, ceiling fans in all rooms, on the gulf, fully furnished. Property has a large grass yard in front, Beach Deck Platform out at the sand dunes. The St Teresa Community is a 'second home' residential area not a Rental area. Experience the privacy of our special community.

About the Area: St Teresa is a beachside community made up of private homes owned mostly by Tallahassee residents. Only a handful of people live here year-round so the beaches are not only private, restricted to homeowners, but also unpopulated most of the time. St Teresa is in the middle of a National forest area and the forest goes almost to the water. Our water is very shallow and we do not have large waves and undertow. Best for Fishing! Our wide white sand beach stretches for miles. We are about 15 minutes (north-west-east) from small communities that have fine dining (casual). Please bring linens and expendables (TP, Soaps, etc.). All utensiles. coffee makers, blender, toaster ovens and microwave are furnished.

People who have enjoyed our home over the years come to walk on the secluded beach, enjoy nature all around, and a fresh seafood meal. Enjoy what Florida was like 100 years ago. St. Teresa. There is nothing like it anymore.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: Moved to St Teresa in 1996 and work with the local CBS affiliate operating beach web cams across the panhandle of north Florida. Enjoy meeting people from all over the world with our nearby vacation rental property.

              Why the Owner Chose St. Teresa:
              St Teresa is where my family spent the summers. I grew up on St Teresa beach and it has not changed in 50 years. This is NOT PC, Destin or St George Island type area!! It is Exclusive and Private. Trees, Private Beach, no noise, no lights and a sky full of stars at night. Enjoy the area for the Natural Beauty surrounding you. You will be in a very wooded area with Nature all around you. Enjoy it. This is the last of it Florida has to offer.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The forest goes down to the water. We have animals and birds. The fishing is great from shore or our nearby dock. Great local restaurants just 10 minutes in all directions. Excellant golf club and grill just 6 minutes from the house. WE ARE DOG FRIENDLY!
