Location

Steinhatchee Florida attracts thousands of visitors throughout the year. Most are returning visitors who actual live on the Atlantic side. Depending the time of year determines fishing laws that can be found on the Florida Wildlife website. Many visitors come to stay either all summer or winter or for an extended period of time to enjoy this quaint and pristine town with no red light. The community is golf cart friendly but laws do apply. The town is best known for its fishing both fresh and salt water (inshore and offshore). Of course SCALLOP SEASON is considered the PEAK SEASON. Kayaking has become very popular for bird watching, fishing or simply enjoying Florida's Forgotten Coast. Photography is popular due to the overall ambiance of the area. There is a Dollar General, Grocery store, several nice sit down restaurants, several fast food like Hungry Howies, Subway and a delicious BBQ to go place, few night clubs,, several Marinas and boat ramps and Churches. We are located less than a mile to a boat ramp. If your boat is 20-21 ft long and does not have a hard top or a very high windshield, you can hope on your boat from our dock that is on a deep water tidal canal. Several hundred yards away you will be on the Steinhatcee River and a very short boat ride to the Gulf. Along the way are several Marina's for bait, ice, supplies, purchase fishing license and of course gas. There is also a full service marina that offers boat repair. Perry Florida is only 40 miles away offering many of your big box stores like Walmart and chained restaurants.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: From Valdosta Ga. and purchased as a second home to go offshore fishing. Also enjoy fishing the river and inshore fishing along with scalloping. The home makes a great get away to relax and enjoy the many water and non water activities or simply spend time relaxing. Community does not have one stop light and I find not only the same renters coming back each year but new ones as well, including a couple of monthly renters from the Northern area. They tell me the house is always immaculate and kept freshly decorated and the location is the best. Give us a try and see how you like it.

Why the Owner Chose Steinhatchee, FL, USA:
One of the best areas in Steinhatchee and property is located only 10 minutes via boat to the Gulf (no wake ride). Yard is fenced in offering landscaping, private dock and floating dock to park your boat (boats up to 22 ft with no hard top). Dock is excellent area to relax and cook out. There is a fish cleaning station on the dock. Home offers a large screened in porch and the master bedroom has a private porch overlooking the canal. House is fully equipped with all amenities. Very clean, immaculate and furnished/decorated nicely.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nature fully exposed with river, wildlife, Gulf and beautiful sunsets! Several state parks are only a few miles drive to spend the day. The small community is blessed to have a Grocery store, several convenience stores and a Dollar General. If you need a charter for any water activity, they are always available and at great rates. Also you will find many locals who are ready to clean your catch of the day, from inshore, offshore fish and scallops. There are several great landmark restaurants located within a mile of our house. Several full service marinas to launch your boat or get fuel and bait/ice. Night time is always an adventure with a couple of local hot spots usually offering live bands and/or karaoke. The location is great, close or on the water and offer outside bar and tiki environment.
