Discover Old Florida at SummerCamp Beach, Gulf Views From Front Porch, Sleeps 6

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,472 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Gulf View Home with 2 bedrooms & 2 baths. Screen porch is perfect for relaxing.

If you long for the "good old days" when going to Florida beaches meant time with family, boating, fishing and exploring, we have the place for you. We refer to this area as "the Forgotten Coast". The reason is, that this part of Florida remains mostly undiscovered by the masses. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath coastal cottage is the perfect getaway. Wildlife abounds and the views go forever. You will enjoy the easy lifestyle of SummerCamp Beach. We feature resort like settings that include boardwalks, large community pool, outdoor grilling, docks, kayak use and sandy beaches.

You will feel like you are the only one here. Our lovely home provides every amenity that you would expect in a vacation rental. Fast wifi and flat screen tvs are in each room. Our soaring ceilings offer plenty of sunshine, highlighting the coastal theme throughout the home. As owners, we live in the neighborhood, and are minutes away from helping you with any need you may have on your vacation. We can offer excellent recommendations for restaurants, places to explore, golfing, fishing, biking and hiking. We love it here, and know you will as well. We offer a personal touch and truly work to make your vacation special.

Our screened in front porch provides the perfect setting to enjoy your morning coffee, while taking in the scene. Our beaches here are rustic and natural. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed. Our low tides make for excellent exploring opportunities. You can search for shells, see fish and other sea life as you wade in ankle deep water. It is truly an amazing experience. If you have had enough of fast paced Florida, be sure to check us out. Life is slow here. We can't wait to show you around.

Perfect Getaway!

5 of 5

This quiet little cottage located at Summer Camp was the perfect spring getaway for my family. The beach was literally footsteps away. It was tucked away from the main road which allowed the kids to have free roam of the area. With all the comforts of home, it makes a mom feel good to let the kids play in the cozy backyard while preparing dinner and watching them through the spacious window. The owners did a fine job picking the name of their little cottage because "the ocean restores the soul" is the perfect fitting.

Home was exactly as shown in the pictures. Owner responded quickly to all questions. Peaceful and relaxing. Bringing our fur baby was a bonus! Having access to kayaks to explore the coast was a delight.

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. It is in a wonderful location for us. We love to fish and this house is close to the lanark boat launch we like to use. Look forward to staying here again.

Would highly recommend this to any one who is looking for a relaxing vacation in a beautiful natural setting. This is old Florida at its very best. The home is just awesome. Could not believe how pretty it was and very clean. The pictures really do not do it justice.

The setting among all the trees, morning views of the sunrise, and walks along the beach were just great.

I brought my two dogs and they loved it. Will definitely be back! Thank you for opening your lovely home to us.

Awesome Relaxing Week

5 of 5

The Ocean Restores the Soul is the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The property was the perfect size and has everything you need.

The "kids", two Chihuahua's, enjoyed walks and exploring the unspoiled beach.

It was so nice to spend time away from the fast paced world and just enjoy the peace and calm.

Would definitely love to return in the future.

Home was as pictured. Very peaceful, serene with natural beauty. Beaches are more natural and rugged, which we expected. Very relaxing and a nice change of pace!

Beautiful home. Quiet and secluded vacation on the forgotten coast.

  • 5 of 5

Kayaking, walking in the ocean, swimming in the pool, finding live starfish and crabs at low tide, and laying by the beach. Laid back vacation in a beautiful and well equipped home. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a slower pace break to reconnect with nature.

A lovely getaway for those looking for a quiet family vavation

  • 4 of 5

Super quiet!! Natural beaches. We had a wonderful time exploring the Gulf shores. The small fishing towns were full of kind and welcoming people. To avoid the hustle of a crowded and loud spring break, this was ideal. The kids loved being able to walk to the pool via beach and explore the shores along the way. Was just what we needed to thaw from another long Minnesota winter. Thank you Sea Monkey.

Great place to stay to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing property! The house is beautiful and well appointed. The beach near the house is great for exploring nature during the low tide. We found an abundance of hermit crabs and even a star fish. If you want a traditional Florida beach experience, then travel the five minutes to Turkey Point Beach! It is a beautiful, white sand beach. We were the only people we saw on it the whole time! Our kids loved exploring and walking on the boardwalk near Turkey Point Beach. We also enjoyed kayaking around the club house area! Overal, this is a great place to stay if you love nature and want away from the crowds!

Everything about our stay at Sea Monkey was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully professionally decorated, comfortable home in a quiet friendly neighborhood. Beautiful star filled nights and a pretty beach with great sunsets. Plenty to do and lots of good places to find a great dinner or lunch , in a short car ride. Quiet , north woods atmosphere Florida- palm trees and pines- great mix . Comfortable bed, cozy living area and really nice kitchen. A good location if you like peace and quiet- this is excellent. If you like traffic and chaos- this is not for you. Second bedroom is nice with a queen bed and a bunk bed if you have kids , or an adult family with children to share a pretty bedroom. We really enjoyed our stay! We do not have one single bad comment to make.
