About Kelly Gilbert & Linwood Gilbert
Kelly Gilbert and her father Linwood Gilbert, both of St. Petersburg, Florida, own and rent 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 updated the property. We love the area and are happy to share this wonderful home with such lovely guests.
Kelly Gilbert & Linwood Gilbert purchased this House in 1985
Why Kelly Gilbert & Linwood Gilbert chose Carrabelle
Our family fell in love with Florida's Forgotten Coast in the 1970s. We started with a small place on Carrabelle Beach, but unfortunately the property burned down and the beach has all but disappeared. In fact it is hard to even find that property anymore since the hurricanes wash the roadway out, leaving very little behind. Next was a cute cottage in the same area, tucked into a wooded lot off of Highway 98. The family was ready to build a house and decided Lanark Village was the perfect spot. 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.
What makes this House unique
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Enjoyed weekend but wish weeds were cut and poison ivy wasn’t there
It was a beautiful place and Sunrises were great. It had everything you need. They had chairs and towels as well
We enjoyed kayaking on the beach. The only thing I recommended is big spray and was told Skin So Soft works great. Plenty of room!
Loved the house and having the privacy. The house was provided with everything you need.
Very easy to rent and liked how well I was kept updated on the payment and checking it process . Will definitely use Home Away again.
Wonderful, relaxing vacation
We had a wonderful time! The house is super nice and clean. The kids loved being on the beach! We cant wait to go back!
Perfect place for the perfect price...
Our family had an amazing stay at Windwood House! Everything was just as described. The home had everything you could possibly need for a vacation. We had our own private beach! The hubby enjoyed catching bonnet sharks (hammerhead family), sea trout, stingrays..all right in front of the house. The beds were the most comfortable we have ever had on a vacation. Our kids had a great time swimming, catching many crabs, seeing starfish, etc. You get a great Gulf view but very calm waters because of the sandbar (it doesn't block your view of the Gulf). Excellent places to eat, friendly town folk, lots of privacy!
Wonderful spot. Great view of water. House has everything you need. Sunrises were exceptional.
Only downside was pine sap falling on vehicle - ever try to get sap off your windshield - - almost impossible. I know that “Michael” undercut the concrete so that parking under the house could have damaged the pad but with that resolved, five stars would be in order.
