I knew the moment that I stepped through the door…
I knew the moment that I stepped through the door…
that I had found a treasure, the kind that you are not sure you want to write a review about and share with others so that no one else would visit and it could be your own little secret. After a long day and even a longer drive I was really looking forward to a hot shower, a cup of coffee and a good night’s sleep, and even told Ms. Lynn the property manager as she gave me detailed instructions the last five miles in. I was really concerned that a few miles earlier than that I kept seeing the “No Outlet” signs and wondered where I was really headed. I wondered even further when the last half mile turned into a one lane 15 mph drive with old live oaks overhead. As I found the house and pulled into the gravel drive I wondered what was behind the door of this concrete house with all the windows. Lynn even had a pot of coffee waiting for me and that kind of hospitality is a kindness not often found. I woke to squirrels playing in the live oaks, herons and pelicans flying by, dolphins and their little ones swimming by and mullet jumping for their breakfast. The water was plentiful and hot and I made instant friends with a soft buttery leather oversized chair and ottoman. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well stocked and even a washer, dryer and soap to wash them are available. The water is about 2 foot deep with a sandy bottom for about a hundred yards out ( safe for the little’s) and the neighbors are helpful if you need them but you catch yourself looking from time to time to see if they are even still there. This home is Old Florida lovingly restored and upgraded with all you need and cool tile floors throughout. Bring your dry goods but tear away for a quick trip to Orange Beach for fresh seafood, a number of local farm stands can give you all you need in produce and the Elberta Grocery will hand cut your Rib eyes, T-Bones, Porterhouses and might even have a few Cordon Blue on hand. Also don’t forget a quick trip to Sweet Home Farms for the very best in homemade cheeses and gourmet goodies. Pack your clothes, bring a float and laze away a few days at the Beach House. We want to thank Lynn for her great hospitality (and getting us hooked up to Wi-Fi for those of us who can’t seem to unplug) and even more so to Ms. Barbara and her family for sharing their family home with us all and treating us like we were extended family. We hated to leave and cannot wait to come back soon!
