VISIT OUR WEBSITE for in depth details about the Windwood House. Beach description, list of items in the kitchen, info about local attractions and more!

Is the Windwood House right for you? You can expect a peaceful, calm retreat in this private home. We have a few vacant, wooded lots to the left and right of the home so you don't often see a neighbor. Yet we're also located right on Highway 98 for easy access to everything you may want to explore. This is a single unit home - meaning you have the entire home to yourself. No upstairs or downstairs neighbors like in a condo. The shore is just steps away and we don't often have people walk by. Windwood is located in a small, quaint town. No hustle and bustle. No loud, touristy, commercialized attractions. You can count on beautiful nature and friendly people. Our beach is small, quaint, and calm with gorgeous tall pines right to the shore. It is well protected by a sandbar, offer sea creatures a protected area. We often see horseshoe crabs, blue crabs, tons of fish, lots of birds like egrets and ospreys, dolphins, and sharks.

This home offers gorgeous views, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies, a ground level deck with a picnic table, a nicely appointed kitchen, flat screen televisions in all bedrooms and beach access just steps from the house. Also, there are large beaches with big waves and big sand dunes within a 15 or 20 minute drive (Carrabelle Beach, St. George Island).

The living room and every bedroom has an amazing view of the water!

The first floor features a well-appointed kitchen with all the necessities for cooking. We’ve stocked all the basics you’ll need such as pots and pans, silverware, knife block, plates, glasses and more. There is a microwave, toaster oven, a range (stove/oven), refrigerator, dishwasher, two blenders (better safe than sorry, right?), a Keurig, and a regular coffee maker.

The living room directly adjoins the kitchen and has a pull out couch, love seat, flat screen smart TV (Netflix is included!), and has a wonderful balcony. There is also a small dining table here.

The third bedroom is also on the first floor and has a very comfortable queen size bed, flat screen TV, Blue Ray player with Netflix and Pandora, and windows overlooking the water.

Also on the first floor is a full bathroom with a modern vanity and tub/shower.

On the second floor you’ll find the master bedroom is nicely appointed with a comfy queen bed, private balcony, flat screen TV, Blue Ray player with Netflix and Pandora, spacious closet and a workstation. Plus, if you’re traveling with a baby, this room has enough space to easily fit a pack and play.

Also on the second floor is the second bedroom which has two twin beds (that can easily slide together if a couple would like to use this room), a flat screen TV and smart DVD player.

The second floor bathroom is nicely appointed with a modern vanity and tub/shower.

The ground level features a spacious deck with a picnic table, propane grill, and Adirondack chairs that are lightweight and can be carried to the shore.

There is covered parking underneath the house plus additional parking in the front drive.

The region is famous for outstanding fishing-from protected bays, to the open Gulf waters, to the winding rivers of Carrabelle, Apalachicola and Panacea. Just 35 minutes away is the town of Apalachicola which is famous for their oysters and Florida's Seafood Festival held every November.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Linwood Gilbert of St. Petersburg, Florida owns and rents out this family vacation house. Our family has been vacationing in the Florida panhandle since the 1970s and we love the area. Linwood built this house with his mother in the mid 1980s and we've recently renovated the property. We love the area and are happy to share this wonderful home.

Why the Owner Chose Carrabelle, FL, USA:
Our family fell in love with Florida's Forgotten Coast in the 1970s. Our family started with a small place on Carrabelle Beach, but unfortunately the property burned down and the beach has all but disappeared. Next was a cute cottage in the same area, tucked into a wooded lot of of Highway 98. Next, the family was ready to build a house and just loved this location. Close to the grocery store but still feels out of the city. Plus the easy access of being right on Highway 98 and the beach right behind the house made it a perfect fit.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There's something about waking up to a sunrise across the Gulf. Getting a cup of coffee, walking on the beach and watching the birds hunt for fish. The serenity recharges you.
