Carrabelle Beach house description

Rent for $2000.00/month (plus tax and departure cleaning) for November and December. Enjoy your holidays on the Forgotten Coast. Total monthly rental $2355.00.

This unique beach property on Florida’s Forgotten Coast was designed by an architect to be his private residence. All three levels have wraparound porches with unobstructed views of the gulf and beautiful barrier islands. This home features three master suites w/ private baths and a fourth bedroom sharing a bath with a third floor Crow's Nest. The Crow’s Nest can be used as a fifth bedroom or observatory and offers spectacular views. Sand Castle is located directly across from the popular Carrabelle beach and a short walk down the beach from the Crooked River Lighthouse Park. You can watch the dolphins play, enjoy long walks along the white sand beach and climb a working lighthouse.

Early risers can catch magnificent sunrises while enjoying coffee on the porch. Later, dazzling sunsets can be viewed while sipping a cool iced tea or your favorite cocktail from the porches or gazebo.

The living area has comfortable seating with ocean views, a 55' HDTV, cable, DVD and stereo. The dining room has seating for eight with additional counter seating and offers ocean views. We have WIFI throughout and all bedrooms have cable TV. The twin bedroom also comes with a Playstation 2. The first floor bedrooms have DVD players. On-site parking is available for cars, boats and other toys.

There is an OPTION to rent only the TOP LEVEL with a private master suite, a second bedroom with 2 twin beds, the loft with a queen futon, living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry. The GROUND FLOOR is available separately as 1 or 2 bedrooms, each with a bath, and a shared common room – perfect for a couples get-away or honeymoon! The ground floor has a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Call us today for a custom quote.

Although we're known for our tranquility, Carrabelle, with its deep water harbor, is less than a mile away. The fishing is great and you can enjoy local restaurants and seafood houses offering some of the finest oysters and seafood in the country. It is a 20 minute drive to historic Apalachicola for shopping and fine dining or to the St George Island beaches. Golf is featured at the St James Bay Golf Resort. Kayaking is also popular and it is not uncommon to see manatee during your paddle. The area is world famous for its birding and migrating butterflies and there are four lighthouses waiting to be climbed.

Plan your next family get together, corporate retreat, large group gathering or wedding with us.

Stay with us and when you reserve a 7 night minimum stay, you will receive 1 pass per guest to climb the Crooked River Lighthouse, offered during regular operating hours.
