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 expendables (TP, Soaps, etc.). All utensils. coffee makers, blender, toaster ovens and microwave are furnished.

Why the Owner Chose Sopchoppy, FL, USA:
St Teresa is where my family spent the summers. I grew up on St Teresa beach and it has not changed in 60 years. This is NOT LIKE PC, DESTIN or St George Island type area or water!! Good fishing off beach or pier. It is Exclusive and Private. Wooded.Trees, Private Beach, no lights and a sky full of stars at night. Watch wildlife, empty beach, wind through pines, relax and unplug. Put our beach chair in the shallow water and take a nap. Enjoy the area for the Natural Beauty surrounding you. You will be in a very secluded very wooded area with Nature all around you. Enjoy it. This is the last of it Florida has to offer.
