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.

Piece of paradise.

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.

Beautiful location and lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Bright, airy cottage tucked away on a beautiful beach. Secluded and surrounded by towering cypress trees, this home is the perfect get-away.

For fun day trips, Apalachicola is just 30-40 minutes away. Clean, nicely decorated and surrounded by the best nature offers :)

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We visited Summer Camp Beach for the first time over the Thanksgiving holiday and it was the perfect getaway and meeting point. My husband, our two daughters (2 & 4), myself and our yellow lab Archer traveled from Houston, TX and met my husband's parents who traveled in from Satellite Beach, FL.

First, the location is wonderful! It was quiet and the area was well kept. I didn't have to worry about my kids stepping on trash on the beach, which is sadly common on beaches in Texas. Second, the home was beautiful and clean. Everything from the home being well cleaned to the details of the decorations made the home feel like a home away from home.

Another detail that was wonderful for our family was the fact that we could bring our family pet with us. Not every place you rent is so accommodating to allowing the furry part of your family to stay and we greatly appreciated that we could have ours with us!

We greatly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

Unwind and Relax!

  • 5 of 5

The home is wonderful, very clean, well stocked and beautifully decorated. If you want to unwind, relax and enjoy nature, this is the place for you! The fishing is great. I couldn't get my sons out of the water. They caught huge redfish and catfish. The best family time we've had in a while. Already booking our next stay!
