Slice of Heaven!
Our first Home Away experience and what a surprise! I was a little skeptical at first due to this being our first experience and reading the one negative review. But all skepticism was gone in the first 10 mins. as Fincher was a great host and truly sums up what southern hospitality means! The place was perfect for us and our 3 daughters who spent hours collecting "treasures" on the beach or swimming in the beautiful water . The house was definitely stocked with anything we needed and provides amazing views which make you not want to leave. But the area has plenty to do if you find the strength to leave this relaxing oasis. I cannot say enough about this experience, this host, or this community; we loved every second of our stay and will definitely come back.
David/Nicole--it was a pleasure meeting y'all and for the kind words and hope u can make that long drive back down from Wisconsin again-we will be here--again thanks.
Another week at a quiet relaxing beach!
Have rented the upstairs and downstairs units over the past 2 years. Both units are spacious, comfortable, clean, well stocked and best of all quiet! Most of the time was spent on the flat beaches during the day and on the screened in porch for the evening! Morning and evening dolphin shows are enjoyable! If you want a nice quiet, non-commercialized vacation spot then this is it!
Looking forward to coming again sometime!
Enjoyable time at St Theresa Beach!
We really enjoyed our stay at this Hidden Gem ! The accommodations were very clean and comfortable, with a huge front porch that was perfect for early morning coffee and watching the sunrise. The beach is only a few steps from the house and our two hairy children (okay, they are actually dogs but don't tell them!) had the time of their lives playing in the waves and on the shoreline. It was so refreshing!! We will be returning as soon as our schedules will allow!
Could Have been better
My wife and I stayed in the downstairs unit for 1 week. We asked about arriving early and was told by the owner that we could absolutely come as early as noon and that the unit would be ready. We showed up around 1 and the housekeeper was shocked! The housekeeper told us that the owner had told the people staying in the unit that they could stay as long as they needed...needless to say we had to wait about 2 hours. Not a huge deal but strike 1. We finally get in and the owners daughter is staying upstairs...the pounding on the ceiling was quite loud but not too bad because we were spending most of the time outside. It is not quiet at all on the weekends as you are very close to neighbors and the other 2 units that are in this house alone. Then as we were laying down at the beach the owners daughter asks to come into our unit to get her water skis. Strike 2! Come to find out the front and back porch are SHARE porches with the upstairs unit and the unit right next door. There were loud phone conversations on the back porch right outside our window! You actually had to pull a wooden divider across the front porch to separate yourself from the unit next door. The unit itself was VERY dated and a bit dirty. There was mold in the bathrooms and on the blinds...the owner lives there and all his clothes were in the drawers and closets so we couldn't use those...the fridge was like walking into someones house with all of their condiments, half used milk, etc...the freezer was a mess with coffee grinds everywhere. The water was actaully brown the whole time we were there...we even had brown ice that the fridge made...obviously we had lots of bottled water and bags of ice! The beach was actually very close and that was nice, but the beach is not your "Destin" type beach...LOTS of sea grass washed up shore and not alot of room to put your chairs when the tide is up. This all being said...strike 3. We would NOT recommend this rental.
Relaxing Getaway on Quiet Beach
I took my five year old twin grandsons here in mid-June and we loved it. Great location between Ochlockonee Bay and Carrabelle with clear shallow water for the little ones to play and miles of beach for our low tide "treasure walks". We enjoyed eating all our meals on the screened porch and being so close to the water was great with little ones. The home was spacious, clean and comfortable and we have a week long stay scheduled next month to enjoy fall fishing and more beach time with all the little ones.
Relaxing family vacation
We were looking for a quiet place to spend some family time on the beach. We found this home and decided to give it a try after reading others' reviews and doing a little research on the area. St. Teresa is a tiny place and definitely "off the map" as far as the normal hustle and bustle goes. Once we arrived we made a trip to the grocery store (a must) and, other than a short break to Apalachicola, didn't leave during our vacation. We found everything to be as was advertised and just as others have stated in their reviews. The owner has thought of everything and goes out of his way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. High on our list . . . we really enjoyed the beach at low tide. Be sure to read tidal charts and explore the shallow waters for crabs and other creatures, but be on the lookout for stingrays and jellyfish. We saw a few but avoided them with a little care. We were fortunate enough to see Manatees (very rare) and dolphins during our stay. Our thanks goes out to the owner for sharing his home. We can't wait to go back!
