Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 9

A TURTLE'S TALE is a three bedroom, three bath newly updated home directly on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. The home has an unsurpassed view with the wide-open water vistas as well as beautiful beach foliage and the world-renowned St Vincent island bird sanctuary. The house sits nestled behind the island breaker making the waves gentle enough for the youngest of beach combers and ideal for Kayaking. The quiet, pet friendly beach is also a great place for shelling and dolphin watching.

The homes beach side sliding glass doors open fully to the screened porch creating an indoor-outdoor living experience. Open the slider on the other end of the Livingroom for a cross breeze from the lagoon to the gulf. A true duel water view.

The house's three well-appointed bedrooms include a master bedroom with king bed, on suite bathroom and private entry to the screened porch with hammock and outdoor sectional overlooking the Indian Lagoon. The second bedroom is a spacious King bedroom with plenty of room for luggage or the mini crib that is located in the closet. The third bedroom is a whimsical bunkroom. The queen bed easily sleeps two adults or there is plenty of room for all the kids with the additional three twin bunks.

Tons of amenities make this house a no brainer. High Def TV and DVD with smart capabilities in every bedroom, games and puzzles, 14-foot shuffleboard table for a rainy day. No need to pack up the whole house in the car, just bring your swimsuit and enjoy!

Reviewer Comments:

The house and location were everything that we expected. The house setup was very nice and useable but there are a lot of stairs which did not bother us at all. We brought a trailer w/ 4 kayaks and were able to easily unload them less than 2 minutes from the house at a boat ramp and paddle them down. We kayaked to St Vincent island and a long way around it almost every day. The beaches there were very nice few people, good nature trails and excellent shell hunting. We did spend three afternoons on Cape San Blas beaches as the water was clear there and the waves were better. The Indian pass Trading Post/ Raw Bar is close and is fantastic. Cape San Blas is close also. One word of advice is to buy everything that you think you need in Port St. Joe because it takes 20 to 30 minutes drive each way. You can also go to the general store (don't expect much inventory) to get a brochure to rent kayaks, etc. and have them delivered to the boat ramp.

Reviewer Comments:

This home is a premium location on an almost private beach with beautiful views. The home has been fairly updated and was very comfortable. The home allows everyone their own space but also has a wonderful gathering area with the open kitchen, large dining table and great seating spaces.

The house is well maintained, clean and in a great location. The open floor plan, with bedrooms and living space split up between floors, makes it a perfect family rental. Finally, the management company in charge of the house was very professional and accommodating, making everything as smooth as possible.

We spent our days at A Turtle's Tale kayaking to St. Vincent's Nature Preserve, shell hunting, sitting on the beach until sundown and eating the best oysters! This house was perfect to split with another family.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved A Turtle's Tale. There are a few things to keep in mind if this is your first beach house experience as well. Even if your fit the stairs take some getting used to. The first 3 days my calves were killing me. We severely over packed. They have sufficient bedding and the beds were very comfortable. There are 4 beach chairs provided. The kitchen is well equipped as well. If it rains, which it probably will at some point, there are multiple places in the house to hang out.

Reviewer Comments:

My family loved our stay! My son wanted to stay forever. First of all, the house was almost completely newly renovated. Even the outdoor furnishings were new. New cushions , flooring, and the bathroom fixtures were complete with toddler seats. This house focuses on family. The bunk room was very cozy and accommodating. There is plenty of beach space( vehicles and fires permitted). I greatly encourage this location if you like to kayak. St. George island is just right across the straight with an abundance of wildlife. The beaches and shells are top notch. My son is 5, and it was a safe kayak experience for him ( we live on a large river and he is experienced). The dolphins were in abundance and made the kayaking a one of a kind memory. One safety note, the boat activity increased on the weekend. If you are looking for waves you are about 8 minutes away from a beach with all the waves you can handle. Other area activities include Port St Joe's lighthouse. To the east Apalatchicola offers a historic riverfront. The Grady market offers plenty of local shops, and the Owl Cafe was my favorite. The gulf front sunrise and bay front sunsets are priceless. If you have a boat , there is a boat ramp just a block away. The amenities are numerous and the wildlife spectacular.
