About the Property
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
Carapace offers expansive beachfront gulf views from living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom and sun deck. Great place to enjoy unspoiled beaches and gulf breezes. Take a short stroll down the uncrowded beach or sit at water's edge. It's 'Old Florida' the way it should be - a beautiful natural setting unblemished by crowds and highrise development. Just take a deep breath and reeelaaax.

To support a sustainable healthy environment we participate in 'eco-lodging' practices at Carapace.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: I retired and relocated to the forgotten coast in 1998. I was, and still am, enamoured by the amazing natural environment here. I love animals and have 3 'rescue' dogs. They are fantastic companions and love spending time at the beach house.
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Beaches, Eastpoint, FL, USA:
I have been vacationing here since 1975 and couldn't wait to live here fulltime. The area is a great place to live quietly and close to nature. The vistas are breathtaking and the people are friendly. You'll experience life at it's best here. The natural environment is just breathtaking. This area is a globally significant hot-spot of biodiversity. Apalachicola Bay is one of the most productive estuaries in the northern hermishere. For bird watchers, there are 3 flyways through this area. You can still enjoy dark skies abundantly speckled with bright stars here. The mild climate is very enjoyable. I think it's just about as perfect a place as you could ask for. A nature-lover's paradise.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Carapace is the perfect place to relax and enjoy yourself. Its a great house for vacationing with your family, including the doggies. You can't beat the views, the climate, the food, the fishing, the eco tours. It's a great place to relax and rejuvenate the spirit.
