About the Area: St Teresa is a beach side community made up of private homes owned mostly by Tallahassee residents. Only a handful of people live here year-round so the beaches are not only private, restricted to homeowners, but also unpopulated most of the time. St Teresa is in the middle of a National forest area and the forest goes almost to the water. Our water is very shallow and we do not have large waves and undertow. Best for Fishing! Our wide white sand beach stretches for miles. We are about 15 minutes (north-west-east) from small communities that have fine dining (casual). PLEASE bring extra beach TOWELS, and EXPENDIBLES (TP, Paper Towels, Soaps, etc.). All utensils. coffee makers, blender, toaster ovens and microwave and linens are furnished.
