Overview

About the property

Brand New 3 BR/2.5 BA Gulf front!Private Boardwalk!Screen Porch!Beach Equipment!

You will not regret getting "Aweigh at Last!"... and, as its name implies, our Gulf front home is just what you need if you are looking for a relaxing get-away in a beautifully decorated home on a pristine, peaceful beach.

We have just completed the finishing touches on our brand new home and you can be one of the first to stay here.

You will love the convenient beach front location with private, ramped boardwalk as well as the variety of amenities inside and out.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 & 1/2 bath home accommodates 6 to 7 people.

There are spectacular views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island from almost every room in the house or from its screened porch & sundeck.

We provide high-quality linens & towels, plush beach towels, beach chairs & other beach equipment; starter supplies of soaps, detergents, paper towels, toilet paper; WiFi, cable, free long-distance and much, much, MORE!

FLOOR PLAN:

The GROUND LEVEL has ample COVERED PARKING (enough for 3 or 4 cars or boats, depending on size) and is where there is a STORAGE ROOM with a plentiful supply of BEACH EQUIPMENT including: beach chairs & rafts, a beach cart, umbrella, beach toys and much MORE, that are provided for your convenience. There is also an OUTDOOR SHOWER, a FISH SINK & station & outdoor charcoal GRILL.

The PRIVATE BOARDWALK to the beach is completely ramped which makes it easy to roll the beach cart or strollers with little ones directly to the beach.

The FIRST LIVING LEVEL has a large SUN DECK and a SCREENED PORCH that spans the entire front of the home. The screened porch is equipped with dining table and ceiling fans that make it easy to DINE 'AL FRESCO" while enjoying the views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island... or you may just want to curl up on the porch and read a book or take a nap!

In addition, the first level includes the LIVING AREA with comfortable seating, 42-inch flat-screen TV & stereo; the DINING AREA which has a slate & wood high-top table; a HALF-BATH; and the UTILITY ROOM with full-sized stacked washer & dryer. The fully-equipped KITCHEN has granite counter tops, undermount sink, stainless steel appliances as well as a KUERIG & regular coffee maker, CROCK POT and more!

The TOP LIVING LEVEL has 3 BEDROOMS and 2 FULL BATHS. In addition to its gorgeous Gulf view, the master bedroom has a very comfortable KING BED, 32-inch flat-screen TV & en-suite bath with tile floors and tub/shower combo. The two guest bedrooms have queen beds, ceiling fans and incredible VIEWS OF THE GULF AND ST. VINCENTS ISLAND. The front guest bedroom has a 32-inch flat-screen TV.

To provide for the 7th guest, the full-sized sofa may be made up to sleep on. (There is also an inflatable mattress if you would prefer that instead.)

AREA FEATURES:

As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can find a variety of SEASHELLS to collect or just enjoy watching the DOLPHINS swimming by or EAGLES and OSPREY scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, sunbathing or fishing in the surf are always a favorite, too.

Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, - a great place for families with children, a couples romantic retreat or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!

You may want to rent a bike or golf cart and cruise quietly through the streets or on the beach. HORSEBACK RIDING on the beach can also be conveniently arranged. There are also KAYAKS to rent if you would like to paddle to nearby St. Vincents Island.

Dinner is right out your door: you can FISH OR CRAB from the shore. SCALLOPING in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies can be enjoyed on your vacation or frozen for later when you return home.

In addition, the famous INDIAN PASS RAW BAR is just a couple of miles up the road where you can enjoy the area's delicious oysters, other seafood and a cold drink. Weekends at the Raw Bar often feature outdoor live entertainment and dancing.

Our area is reminiscent of 'Old Florida.' There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere near by! Our BEACHES ARE VERY QUIET AND PRISTINE and, in the off-season, you will rarely encounter anyone as you stroll quietly along the beach!

Our home is located on Indian Pass, just a couple of miles east from Cape San Blas - which has been rated in the top five of the best beaches in the United States. Port St. Joe is only 10 miles to the west where you can stock up on all of the provisions you'll need. If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. A golf course is only a few miles away and there are 4 separate boat ramps within 15 miles.

Just 20 minutes to the east is the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many wonderful restaurants and night spots. In addition, you can walk along the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day.

We invite you to get away from it all at "AWEIGH AT LAST!"

About Leslie Frye Allen

We live in Tallahassee and love this area of Florida's Gulf Coast. I have been coming down here since I was a child and have since introduced my husband and our two girls to this wonderful taste of 'Old Florida.'

We hope you will also fall in love with this area. It is a beautiful part of Florida where you can really get away from it all.

Absolutely fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazingly beautiful and furnished with everything you need! All you really need to bring is your bathing suit!

The beach is covered with the most beautiful shells I've ever seen. The furnished beach buggy and supplies were fantastic!

The kitchen is top notch! Has everything you need for a great meal!

By far the best beach trip we've ever had! We will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, SO much, for the kind review. Since our home is brand new and we only put it on the rental market a few weeks ago, we didn't have any reviews yet and we appreciate you being our very first! We are so glad you stayed at our home and that you had a wonderful time. We are also so happy that you let our home be a part of celebrating your recent marriage. That's great that you were able to explore the beach and find some shells, too! We hope you will come back again...SOON!

Great accommodations. Owner called early in visit to answer any questions/concerns. Super clean.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with well equipped kitchen. Nice option of screened or unscreened porch. There are houses on either side of this property. Overall a very quiet area. Some days could be the only one on the beach if you are looking for some solitude from your busy life. Enjoyed seeing my husband so relaxed!

Greathome for families in very quiet Indian Pass

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for a small family with young kids (ours were 5 and 3 when we visited), as even with a little one still not quite ‘stair safe’ the split level nature of the house (bedrooms up, family and common areas down) made for an easy stay for us. The outdoor screened patio was also VERY nice, offering both shade and insect protection for when we wanted to be outside but not in the sun. The kitchen is well appointed, with good quality cookware and plenty of dishes and glassware, along with relatively new appliances and a full size washer and dryer in the utility room.

The wifi Internet works well and is fast, and we had no issues with cell service and coverage.

In terms of accommodations, supplying both bath and beach towels was quite helpful. We only used two of the three bedrooms, and although my kids slept fine my wife and I found that the mattress in the master a little less than comfortable, at least for our preferences … but after long days running after kids we certainly didn’t have any trouble sleeping outside of a little tossing and turning.

The beach cart is very handy, as although the house is beachfront, the walk out to the beach down the boardwalk is just long enough that you wouldn’t want to make multiple trips if you could help it – and the cart is just what is needed. The beach itself isn’t quite as pristine as you find up the coast towards Pensacola and Destin. Surf and waves were limited, I imagine because of the spit of sand that extends from nearby St. Vincent island, and the sand and water are a little more brown than blue, likely due to being so close to the outlet of Apalachicola Bay. We didn’t get in the water as it was still a little too cold in early March, but we still had a great time. This beach is one of the most unique I’ve ever visited in Florida. Tall pine trees grow just on the landward side of the dunes, and the houses are set well back from the beach. Some days on our early March visit we saw just one other person the entire day. It’s quiet, it’s rustic, and it’s wonderful. We dug out a fire pit and had a small bonfire to roast marshmallows.

Although a home has been constructed on the lot next to this property that is very nearby – and is nearly in front of this home - beach views from the deck are not obstructed.

If you’re looking for a great spot for your family where you’ll have a beach to yourself, this house is perfect. We would happily book again when we return to the big bend area.

Lovely home with amazing secluded beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Aweigh at Last and were very impressed. It is decorated in a beach motif that makes you feel at home. Everything you need for a wonderful time at the beach is there. We relaxed on the beautiful beach every day and saw very few people. Its the perfect getaway. Leslie is the best!! She is available immediately if you need anything.We would love to return next year!
