Property description

This newly renovated single level beach cottage was completely redone inside and out. No stairs to climb to bring in your luggage, groceries, or beach gear. Beautiful new kitchen complete with butcher block countertops, top of the line appliances, and everything you need to cook fresh seafood you can purchase right down the street. Two new indoor bathrooms and a private enclosed outdoor shower with endless hot water provide plenty of room for all to clean up after a day on the beach. New decks across the front and back of the home offer gulf views and comfortable seating among the palm trees and jasmine privacy trellises. The two story observation deck is a wonderful place to soak up the sun, have a cup of morning coffee watching the sunrise, or have an evening meal watching the sunset over the bay. Two comfortable bedrooms with queen beds, a den with an air mattress, and living/dining room each have large flat screen televisions and a dvd player in the living room. Free wireless internet service is also provided for your convenience. The island bike path is located right across the street and is convenient for walking pets, jogging, biking, & island site seeing. The beach access is a pleasant two minute walk-approximately 100 yards from the cottage. Visit Facebook for more photos--search Aqua Pearl.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches:
We discovered Apalachicola and SGI in December 2009. By April 2010 we were homeowners on the island. We immediately started renovations on the Wishing Well, an 'Old Florida' beach cottage, and have turned it into the newly remodeled Aqua Pearl keeping the vintage cottage style. We love the Forgotten Coast and it's relaxed living. Island time is the best time there is.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Aqua Pearl is a home away from home without the daily stresses of life. It is comfortable inside and out. We enjoy relaxing and also enjoy how easy it is to stay active while vacationing with the island bike path just across the street. Bicycle rentals are right down the road and we enjoy riding to the state park and to the bay to watch the sunset. The path is also great for walking and jogging but a morning walk on the beach can't be beat. The fishing pier is also a great place to take a stroll and to fish! We enjoy the great variety of restaurants in Apalachicola and have our favorites on the island. We also enjoy cooking in our beautiful new kitchen and love that you can purchase fresh Florida seafood right down the street and also great cuts of meat on the island as well. The observation deck is a wonderful place to have a cup of morning coffee or enjoy your evening meal while the sun sets. The back deck is private and peaceful and a perfect place to enjoy the ocean breezes in the shade after a day on the beach. The layout of our home works great for families with two to three children since there are two separate living areas with televisions and dvd players so that you can have a little time apart when needed. It also works great with two couples since you have your own spaces.
