Relaxing Waterfront Sunsets, Dolphin Watch, Canoe, Paddle Boat, Pool Table and MORE! WHY RENT SEVERAL HOTEL ROOMS FOR A GROUP WHEN YOU CAN STAY AT THIS GREAT HOUSE FOR LESS AND HAVE PLENTY OF ROOM? This is an old Florida home with the old time Florida feel. You will see the most amazing sunsets from the porch swing over looking the bay. There is so much to do right here that you never need to leave the premesis. Fish from the pier, swim, sun in the lounge chairs, and relax. We provide a canoe and a paddle boat if you want to move off shore to fish. Crab baskets are on site for you to use. There are some water toys for the children. Play Pool, Foosball or several board games or a game of cards if it is raining.
The bay waters are calm and shallow. You may bring a boat (the launch is about 8 miles east of the house) and tie up to the dock. Catch mullet, redfish, and sheepshead to go with the crabs you catch. You will need to bring your own rods and reels and other fishing needs. You may choose to go to one of our fine restaurants located on Pensacola Beach or Navarre Beach.
Walmart is located just 5 miles from the house.
Sunset Point is perfectly located between Pensacola Beach and Navarre Beach and is just 35 miles to Destin and 16 miles to Pensacola. The locals call our area 'MIDWAY', because we are midway between Gulf Breeze and Navarre. Navarre Beach offers a beautiful, natural and uncluttered shoreline. Visit Navarre Beach Park and the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Our area has the amenities that really draw people...it looks like old Florida.
You can enjoy floating in the shallow bay or visit one of the beautiful white sandy beaches.
If you get too warm outside, come on in and sit in the air conditioned sun room. Watch the seagulls and the ungraceful pelicans plop into the the water. If you are fishing, sometimes our friendly Heron will stop in and steal your bait or even your catch. Dolphins frequently swim by chasing their prey of mullet and other schools of fish.
For rainy day weather we provide a pool table and foosball table for your enjoyment. Watch one of the provided video's or DVD's, or listen to one of the CD's provided.

Johnny Houston's Sports Bar (located towards Navarre) has the best hamburger. Going over the Destin Bridge-Crab Island is a site to behold.

While this Cottage has 1.5 baths, we've installed a private ship-lapped SHOWER HOUSE with hot and cold running water. It is located off the deck of the 4th bedroom for your convenience. It really does feel great to take a shower outside under the oak trees. (Please see the comments in the review section).
If you love to fish and they are not biting at Sunset Point, try your luck at Narvarre Beach or Pensacola Beach where there are long Fishing Piers over the Gulf. Or if you prefer, try surf fishing. You are almost guaranteed to catch something good. You can also charter fishing boats to go deep sea fishing or fishing on the flats. Go fishing with a group or arrange your private trip. You can schedule half day trips or full day trips. (There is information on scheduling trips of this type in the information booklet at Sunset Point. Or let us know and we'll help with contact information in advance so that your fishing trip will be scheduled in advance of your arrival). The catch here will be worth the story telling. There are several rivers in the area if you like to freshwater fish.
