Property description

A very cute, family, couple or fisherman friendly home in Horseshoe Beach, located right on the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful views. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath home has a beautiful glassed-in front porch overlooking the Gulf where you can watch the sun rise or set from its comfortable rockers as the dolphins swim past your dock. Or at the end of the day, you can stroll 1 block down to the 'turn-around' known as the 'Point' where folks gather to watch the best sunset view during the summer months. Situated on three lots, one ocean side and two across the street, this home has plenty of parking for vehicles or boats. On the gulf side is a boat dock with covered cleaning station. The bedrooms offer a king bed and a queen bed with additional sleeping in the main room - 2 twin trundle beds and a futon full-size bed. A kitchen with 2 refrigerators, stove and microwave, dining room table that seats 6 and a fully stocked set of dishes, glassware, utensils and cookware; a TV/stereo sitting area with flat screen TV and DVD (and video library) provide all the comforts of home while you're visiting. Central heat, A/C and wi-fi throughout the house, including the porch.

If you are looking for a fancy, high-end experience, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a relaxing, fun, interesting, old fashioned Florida vacation with your family or friends then Horseshoe Beach and our house would be a perfect fit! The house is very quaint and comfortable and we hope you'll want to come back again and again.

Check in time is 4 pm. Check out time is 10 am.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Katherine and I are a professional couple. She is a professor with both the state of Florida college and university systems specializing in web-based learning. I am a consultant with a primary focus in cloud based applications integrating with financial products. Our ultimate goal is to work where we travel and travel where we work.

Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Beach:
Katherine & I acquired the home through my parents. Both my sons have grown up coming to Horseshoe Beach for fishing, scalloping and family getaways over the past 20 years. We love the peace and quiet that Horseshoe has to offer. We consider this our home away from home and would love to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This was my parent's getaway that we enjoyed coming to for fishing trips and the wonderful seafood that was available. No one dreamed when it was purchased that it would turn out to be so enjoyable for relaxing and for water activities. The 4th of July fireworks are displayed from one of the small islands directly in front of our home, giving us a front row seat every year. Our house has seen some changes over the last few years. We've put in some hard earned time and sweat and have transformed our place from a rustic fish camp to a charming seaside cottage with all the comforts of home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do and hope to see you soon. Just contact us (Hal & Katherine) if you have any questions.
