Property description

Relaxing Waterfront Sunsets, Dolphin Watch, Canoe, 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 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.

Dave's Oyster Bar is located less than 4 miles from the house.
Crab's, Hooters, Peg Leg Pete's, The Grand Marlin, and Sidelines, Flounder's and Crab's (all restaurants) are located on Pensacola Beach. The Pier Restaurant, Jauna's Pagoda, and Sailor's Grill is located on Navarre Beach. Helen Back Restaruant has the best pizza around and if your looking for good fresh seafood try The Shrimp Basket both located in Navarre. And Just across the 3 mile bridge going west into Pensacola is the World Famous McGuire's Irish Pub. There is also a McGuire's Irish Pub in Destin. Johnny Houston's Sports Bar (located towards Navarre) has the best hamburger.
Going over the Destin Bridge-Crab Island is a site to behold. The Destin Pass has beautiful carribean colored water and is usually loaded with boats on the weekends and during the summer season.

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are native Coastal Floridians. We just can't imagine living anywhere else.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Breeze:
This is the most beautiful area of Florida.....well except maybe for the Keys. This area has an 'Old Florida' feel. We like being away from the hustle, bustle, and wildness of the beach. This property provides a private atmosphere with a gentle bay breeze.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are 'WaterBugs'. We love all water sports....from fishing, to floating, to snorkeling to stand-up-paddleboarding and all in between. Watch the fishermen throw their nets while their are boats in full motion to catch mullet is exciting. See dolphins swim near the dock and at a distance. Watch for crabs, stingrays, and fish swimming around the dock. Do some night fishing off the end of the dock. Set out the crab baskets withy bait and catch blue crabs. We love to celebrate the days end by watching the sunset. Swim and float in the warm waters of the bay. Sit in a lounge chair and soak up the sun. Or sit in the porch swing under the Juniper tree and feel the warm bay breeze on your skin. Smell the salty bay air. Listen to the water splash on the rocks at the seawall. Watch the pelicans and other seabirds dive into the bay. (Even Osprey and Bald Eagles are around here). Watch sail boats, motor boats, jet skis, and stand-up paddle boarders on the bay. Play a game of Horse shoes. (Provided) On cool evenings, fire up the fire-pot and relax with a hot or cold drink. And much, much more.
