Property description

The most incredible feature of this luxurious beach home is the location. 'Tini Time is on the Gulf of Mexico along the last undeveloped beach in Florida. You will share this beach with Loggerhead Turtles, Bald Eagles, and other wild native species still abundant here. Walk along white sand shoreline and hardly pass another soul. Our naturally wide, beautiful beach is peacefully quiet.

Sit outside on the deck and it is so quiet, the only sounds you will hear are the rustling of the pine trees and the crashing of the ocean waves. The inky black sky is so dark, you will never see more stars in one sitting again. And when there is a full moon... Heaven.

'Tini Time boasts 2300 square feet, beautifully laid out to provide opportunities for family togetherness and most importantly, opportunities for privacy also.
The Great Room incorporates the kitchen,wet bar, dining room, and living room. The kitchen features include all new appliances, granite countertops and gourmet cookware for the chef in the family.
The wet bar has a free standing ice machine for making 'tinis or daiquiris or just filling the cooler for the beach. The dining room/kitchen accommodates ten guests for dinner. The comfortable furniture in the living room is perfect for conversation or watching movies on the big screen TV. There is a queen sleeper sofa there if needed.
Sliding Glass doors offer a view of the Gulf of Mexico from the living room and lead to the screened porch where there is dining for another six. The open, Gulf-front deck has luxurious furniture including chaise lounges, perfect for coffee at sunrise or 'tinis at sunset.

There are two large master suites with private baths and sitting rooms, one upstairs and one down, one king and one queen. These luxurious suites offer the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. Read a book, watch a movie, have a cocktail, in the solitude of your own space, with an unobstructed view of the Gulf of Mexico.

The sitting rooms have doors out to decks that face the beach. Each sitting room offers a queen sleeper sofa if needed. The two rooms of the suite are separated by doors for privacy if the sleeper sofas are to be utilized.

The children bunk in their own room with private bath. It is a slumber party with twin bunk beds to climb into. The little TV and DVD player plus plenty of children's DVDs will keep them quiet and happy. They have a radio and CD player for their choice of music and a closet full of board games, card games, and puzzles.

This beach house offers large areas for fun and togetherness, but most importantly, unique opportunities for privacy. It is perfectly laid out for a large family or possibly two smaller families to share. It would be perfect for a two couples to share, offering practically identical amenities for each.

There are no ferris wheels, IHOPs, or T-shirt shops. This is old Florida. The thankfully Forgotten Coast of Florida. At 'Tini Time, you're on island time. Whether you like 'em shaken or stirred, relax, don't worry, it's five o'clock somewhere.
