The Gulf main beach is a block away with beautiful white sand beaches, great for surf fishing or just relaxing and taking in the sun and view.

About Curtis Ward
We bought this home in 1995 for our personal use, not as a money making investment. However with the high cost of owning a Florida coastal property we have decided to rent some to help off set the costs of owning the home. We still use the property every chance we get.

Why Curtis Ward chose Alligator Point
We are located in a very quiet, safe and low traffic neighborhood. We are situated next to a 25 acre nature preserve and in a private location. We usually fish, swim, boat, sunbathe and just hang out at our home on our little private beach as opposed to walking down to the public beach. However the public beach is only a block away.

Everything it was advertized to be.
If you are looking for a glitzy destination near lots of glitzy attractions, this is not the place for you. Alligator Point is truly part of Florida's forgotten coast. The property does have gorgeous views on a quiet wooded lot just yards from the bay. The house was supplied with most everything needed to just sit back and enjoy the scenery. Do remember to bring your favorite essentials and plan to supplement when you are inland on one of the many worthwhile excursions. A great place to relax.
We came in nov. And the house is very small and looks lived In we only stayed on night bc we had to find somewhere else to stay be prepared to the pretty much camping idea there is only a pedestal fan for heat that is small if you want hot water in the shower plan on calling the owner bc it will not just work magically the fold out sofa is awful bc of the mattress and the loft don't plan on standing or moving around bed on left and bed on right as soon as you get to the top of the ladder they will not refund you! !#!
Well, the problem wasnt the home it was the unusually cold and windy weather so the 6 adult guests were confined indoors and yes I can see why that would not be fun but we cant control the weather. Of all the hundreds of guests we have had visit over the years we have never had one that could not figure out how to turn on a shower! No, we do not have a magic fold out bed you have to actually open it yourself. There are three other queen size beds in the home anyway, one in the main bedroom and two upstairs. Please read some of our other reviews for a better reflection of our home and property.
Nice quiet get away place.
Reminds me of a beach cottage we used to rent when I was a kid, hard to find that now days.
We had an awesome time at Alligator Point! The house was perfect for our family! It was very cozy and had everything we needed. Plus, the views were incredible from all sides of the house! The kids loved playing on the little beach at the house and were so excited to see all the fiddler and hermit crabs! The public beach access was a short walk from the house and we saw maybe 10 people on the beach the whole time we were there! It was so nice! We caught all kinds of critters, even a few rays, which the kids thought was so cool! The area under the house was great too! We could sit on the swing and watch the kids play in the sand. We made a fire in R2D2 and roasted marshmallows! We had family that stayed at the campground close by and they came over and loved the house too! We went to Wakulla Springs State Park and did a boat tour and went swimming. That is a definite MUST DO for anyone coming to the area! We ended up going back to Wakulla Springs 3 times during our stay because we loved it so much! There are several great little restaurants in the area. Our favorites were Posey's Steamroom and Hutton's Seafood Truck! Both were fantastic! We will definitely be coming back! The laid back atmosphere of the whole area is awesome! It was one of the best vacations we've ever had!
Best vacation ever!
This place had everything we wanted and needed. It was a quiet little place in a quiet little town and had amazing views. The bay is out front we saw all kinds of wildlife(even had a visit from a hunting dolphin). There is a little marsh area right next door with birds a fiddler crabs. The main gulf beach is a 5 minute walk up the road. We made a fire in r2d2 downstairs and sat on the porch swing while our kids did tricks on the "swing board". Everything we needed for the week was provided...it truly felt like our home away from home. We will be back as often as we can.
Thank you for taking the time to post a review and we do hope you visit again we are continually making improvements and additions to the property so will be even better next visit.
Only the Best!!!
This vacation property can be described as "only the best"!!! The house has a beautiful view of the bay
from the deck. The rustic atmosphere makes one feel very comfortable and "at home". Our stay was
for only one night and we were so glad that it was available on short notice. Much better than a motel room!! This rental will not disappoint no matter what the occasion or if it IS on short notice! I would not
hesitate to recommend this very appealing property and location to anyone who is looking for natural
beauty and quiet solitude.
Thank you, it isnt the Ritz Carlton but is clean, comfortable and affordable.
