About Alan Sligh

The owner is a local charter boat captain who has lived in Mexico Beach for 15 years. He can arrange fishing, shelling, Snorkel, kayak & scallops trips. Guests receive discount.

Alan Sligh purchased this house in 2007

Why Alan Sligh chose Florida Main North West

Mexico Beach offers some of best fishing in Florida and some of the last remaining undeveloped beachfront in the state. Our beaches are almost never crowded, often almost empty. Nearby there are many miles of beach still in a natural state.

What makes this house unique

Safe. Quiet,friendly neighborhood, within easy walking distance of the popular Killer Seafood, Toucans restaurant, Lookout Lounge bar and Gulf Foods grocery store. Steps from the beach and the new side walk path that parallels the beach.

Beach home and community with a great view

  • 5 of 5

Two of us rented this unit in mid-October. This unit is on the second level and has a great view of the ocean. We enjoyed beach reading, beach walking, and kayaking and the weather was fantastic. Even though this rental is located a small block back from the beach, the view and access were wonderful. You just take the path across the vacant lot in front of the property and cross the road the the ramp for the beach. The traffic on the road was quite manageable and did not give us a problem. The unit is immaculately clean and had 3 flat screen televisions. It has a new king mattress in the main bedroom which was very comfortable. The kitchen has a new refrigerator/freezer is a two door stainless steel appliance with plenty of room. The stove top was the flat surface type. Alan was very helpful with local information and quick to address any questions or needs. He had placed restaurant information flyers in the unit and can also tell you anything you need to know. Alan is very friendly and the neighborhood feel of the house makes you feel like a resident of Mexico Beach instead of a visitor. It's a great beach home away from home! We enjoyed our stay and will keep it on our list for future visits.

Amazing Stay at Beach Comber

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at the Beach Comber. Al was a very gracious host. He is only as involved in your stay as you want him to be. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. The outdoor shower, beach cart, chairs, and umbrella were clutch! The view from the porch rocking chairs was fantastic! If we weren't on the beach, we were enjoying the view from the porch. Al took us fishing at a great price. He cleaned the fish we caught and then explained how to prepare the fish. The area was very calm and relaxing. Great food and entertainment options.

Another great visit at Captain Alan's!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have visited and stayed at the Beachcomber. As always, the rental was perfect! We've had an eventful year, and this was a welcome rest. We plan on going back again next year to recharge again.

Wonderful Week at Beachcomber

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our week spent at the Beachcomber. The unit was very clean and had an unobscured view of the Gulf of Mexico. There were bicycles provided, which my kids road non-stop and there was a grocery store and restaurant within walking distance. The owner, Capt. Alan, was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this rental to others.

Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Mexico Beach...but it won't be our last! Usually we stay around Fort Walton Beach/Miramar Beach/Destin...but this is so much more laid back. What a great place to relax, unwind, and just have a great time with my three girls. We LOVED the house we stayed in...and Alan was a great host! He greeted us when we arrived, and was very informative on what we could do/see while we were there. My girls wanted nothing more than to go to the beach every day...and that's exactly what we did. What a great beach for relaxing! Alan provided the beach chairs (4), the umbrella, and a wagon in which to carry everything. It only takes about two minutes to go from the house to the beach. Outside shower was a plus as we were able to rinse all sand off of us before going back into the house. Definitely a place we will rent again.
