About the Property

6 Bedroom Beach House - Comfortably Sleeps 16 in beds

Ship 2 Shore is an extraordinary beach house with a huge brand new in-ground Swimming Pool.

Our home sits directly on the white sandy Gulf beach and we also own the bay lot across the street where we have a 300' dock.

Why choose Ship 2 Shore?
* Location - Location - Location
* West End has Superior Beaches
* Private Pool 27 x 12 w/sports bottom!
* Closest Public Access is miles away
* Uncrowded Beaches
* Elevator
* Beach Level Bathroom
* 2 Kitchens - 1 is Beach Level
* 300' Private Dock to fish/crab from
* Anchor Buoy - no need to launch the boat daily
* Large Propane BBQ Grill + Charcoal Grill

Expansive water views from every room in the home, including all of the 6 bedrooms.

Our spectacular home was recently remodeled and redecorated, with an eye to creating a casual seaside atmosphere. Located in the exclusive section of The Point where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Bay, this is one of the few homes privileged to have the pristine sand beaches of the Gulf in the backyard and the crystal blue waters of the Bay in the front yard.

Perfect for any occasion, this extra-special, two story beach house boasts 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 kitchens, spacious indoor and outdoor living areas, and breathtaking views of the Gulf and Bay from every room.

We are proud that everyone refers to our home, as the nicest beach house on The Point.

4 sets of french doors open to the gulf, immaculate heart pine floors throughout. Hotel quality linens and down pillows on every bed. Memory foam mattresses. Not a detail was overlooked.

It's a very special place.....

Our 4800sf home lays out as follows:

Master bedroom (captains quarters) has a king bed, private bath, french doors which open to the Gulf Porch with unimaginable gulf frontage and windows with views of the bay. Fall asleep listening the the waves lapping on the beach.

Admirals Quarters has a queen bed, french doors which open to the Gulf Porch with the same gulf frontage as the Master, windows with views of the bay.

Skippers Quarters has a queen bed, amazing views of both the gulf and the bay.

Crews Quarters has 2 twin beds, set in bahama style with a custom built table between. Breathtaking views of the gulf and the bay.

Living room has overstuffed down filled furniture, complimented with nautical theme decorations, mosaic glass tile fireplace, sea glass, mahogany ship wheel, oars,etc. Despite the upscale quality of the furnishings and artwork - our home has conquered the challenge of retaining the coveted 'beach house' feel. Very inviting, casual and extremely comfortable.

The dining room is comprised of a heart pine table and 8 chairs. The kitchen bar seats 4. As most meals are served family style, on the Gulf Porch, there is a teak table, which seats 12 comfortably.

The kitchen has everything, pans of every dimension, crab/lobster pots, roasting pans, poultry racks, crock pots, blenders, cast iron skillets, warming trays, all hand tools and even.....a stick blender. Bosch espresso/cappuccino maker accepts Tassimo pods.

On the Bay side of the house, we have a large covered porch (25'x25') Patio furniture surrounding a marble mosaic table. High end propane grill with convenient fold out stainless prep table.

The Gulf Porch is covered and screened, it is 48' x 12'. Long teak dining table, 5 rocking chairs, a teak couch w/ teak occasional tables, and ..... everyone's favorite.... the 2 person quilted hammock. This porch is everyone's favorite place to hang out.

Just off the Gulf Porch is what we call the 'Sunset Deck'. Some call it the 'Sun Bathing Porch', and my kid's call it the 'Dolphin Watching Porch'. My favorite place to watch the stars at night. For your viewing pleasure, we have a high powered telescope.

Schools of dolphin swim by at least twice per day - and occasionally you will find them swimming around the dock.

We achieved our goal of creating the 'feel' of the downstairs to be ''ole Florida rambling beach house'. It has 2 bedrooms/1 bath, a morning kitchen, a living room and a ping-pong table. It lays out as follows....

The Mermaids Quarters has a Queen size bed and eye level views of the beach.

The Bunk room (Pirates Quarters) has 1 set of bunk beds (2 twins stacked). We built the room so the little tikes in the bunk beds could fall asleep watching the stars.

In the downstairs living room there are 2 brand new queen size sleeper sofas.

The downstairs is beach level :) Designed so that beach-goers can come in and out with ease. The floors are beach proof! (no sand or water worries)

There is a morning kitchen downstairs, with a fridge/ice maker, coffee maker, toaster oven, blender, etc.

You can walk right in from the pool or beach grab a beverage, make a cocktail or sandwich, go to the bathroom--- all without going upstairs.

There is yet another covered porch downstairs, with a teak table that seats at least 10, a teak porch swing and a covered sand play area - which is great for when the kids have had too much sun.

Downstairs living room has comfortable seating with cushioned wicker chairs, atop jute carpets.

What key features make our beach house stand out among the others??????

Guests may fish/crab from the 300’ private dock or tie your boat off to the anchor buoy located adjacent to the dock.

Elevator - I learned this lesson when I rented my first beach house. I spent hours lugging suitcases, groceries, coolers, baggage, parents and kids up 2 flights of stairs! With an elevator, just load 'em all in the elevator and press UP!

Boardwalk to Beach - many beach houses just have a beaten path over the dunes, which can be difficult. We have a wide boardwalk directly to the sand - keeping bare feet safe all the way to the beach.

Covered Porches - Expansive covered porches on both watersides of our home are an absolute necessity for a comfortable reprise from the sun.

If you're looking for the 'home away from home' vacation, and you want it to be simple and carefree- our home is for you.

Beach towels, hair dryers in each bathroom, household/laundry products included.

Please know when you are renting one of my homes you don’t have the extra costs or aggravation of renting beach chairs, chaise lounges, umbrellas, beach/pool towels, beach toys, etc.

Our homes all come completely stocked, which saves you time, money, aggravation and suitcase space,,,,,, items such as: shampoo, body wash, laundry products, paper towels, paper products, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, baggies, garbage bags, cleaning products, every spice you could imagine, olive oil, coffee, etc. etc. etc. All you really need to do is, bring your luggage and groceries and alllll the rest is already there.

Make memories of a lifetime at Ship 2 Shore on beautiful Alligator Point!

Owner info

Gulf Vacay, Inc.

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Love the Beaches of Franklin County and all of the Forgotten Coast

Why the Owner Chose Alligator Point, FL, USA:
When the decision was made to purchase a beach house, I drove every beach front property from Shell Point Florida to Gulf Shores Alabama. I chose Alligator Point first and then I chose this home. The closest public access is several miles down the beach, so there are never any strangers or crowds on our beach. That's important to me. Uncrowded Beaches - I prefer to hear the dolphins breathing and the seagulls chirping, as opposed to chatter from beach combers. With the home came an unexpected delightful bonus.... It is the only place on the earth (that I have ever been), where you can watch the sunrise and sunset from the same porch. Elevator - No lugging coolers, suitcases, kids and up a flight of stairs. Ground level kitchen and bathroom - so convenient on beach days. 300' private dock, fish and crab in your own space. Makes loading and unloading the boat an effortless task. Anchor Buoy - no need to launch the boat everyday, just tie off at the anchor buoy. Wooden Boardwalk to the beach This beach house gives me peace, calms the soul.
