About the Property

3BR/2BA Beachfront Home

White Pelican: 3 BR, 2 BA home recently (2015) renovated and immaculately maintained (new pics coming soon). Sits on huge Gulf front gulf-to-bay lot for water view from every window of the house. Huge deck and screen porch on the gulf, overlooking beautiful sand dunes and private beach. Front deck overlooks Alligator Bay and natural forest area. Sleeps 7, rare exceptions made for additional guest (extra charge for more than 7 people.) Air conditioned, dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, DVD, VCR, gas grill, fully furnished. High speed wireless internet and Cable TV provided.


Amenities: Hardwood floors throughout, two queen beds, bunk bed with double and a single; recently remodeled; Soapstone kitchen counters and new second bath; microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher, fully furnished kitchen, ceiling fans, cable TV and VCR, gas grill; 16 foot wide glass doors look out on huge screen porch, private beach.


Activities: Very quiet area. No theme parks, roller coasters, kiddie parks, etc. Shopping within 30-45 minutes; trips to Carrabelle, Wakulla, Apalachicola, East Point, Tallahassee are popular. Deep sea fishing boats leave from several local marinas. Wonderful restaurants within 15 minutes drive. Fishing from surf in front of the house this year yielded Spanish mackerel, flounder, whiting, and Redfish.


Area: Alligator Point is a narrow spit of land about 4 miles long. Most maps don't list it. Years ago, the area was called 'Lighthouse Point' before it was developed. Our house is at the most narrow part, thus the gulf-to-bay location. Our back yard is the Gulf of Mexico; our front yard is Alligator Bay. Nice easy sand path through the dunes to the beach....the bay is accessible in the front of the house and we recently added a 420' dock for fishing and boat mooring available upon request (inquire for details).

Highway 98 is the main highway that runs along the coast. Alligator Drive (Highway 370) cuts down to the peninsula just west of the big bridge over Ochlocknee Bay. Light shopping is available within 15 minutes of the house.

Rentals typically 7 day minimum but some exceptions and run from Sunday to Sunday unless other arrangements are made.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Optional Cleaning Fee $125
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $250
  • Tax Rate 9%

Notes:

Sunday to Sunday rentals preferred (exceptions considered). Alligator Point rentals are rare and usually fully book. Last year we were unable to accommodate many request as we were fully booked during most of the peak season. In order to allow more people to enjoy the beach we love, we recently decreased our minimum stay from 7 days to 3 days. We will still give priority to week long rentals but in order to allow rentals during weeks we will only be here a few days, we will accept partial week rentals within 30 days of any rental date if it isn't already booked.


Manager's cancellation policy:

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: This is our personal vacation home not a shabby rental investment filled with inexpensive worn furniture and run by a corporation. We take great pride in making it inviting and well appointed. The home has been renovated from top to bottom since we purchased the home and we have just renovated the master suite with new glass enclosed master shower and ship lap bedroom in the winter of 2016-17. We are avid divers and spearfish year around in the amazingly bountiful waters of the gulf.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the coveted few gulf to bay properties on The Point. New composite 420 sq ft deck overlooks the gulf as does the large screened porch.
