About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Living Room (Queen-sized pull-out sofa bed), 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)
Built in 1932, our home was once utilized as housing for family members of soldiers stationed at Camp Gordon Johnston, a WWII amphibious military training facility. It has been in our family for 5 generations.
Our home’s amenities include: morning coffee and beautiful sunsets from our large deck overlooking the gulf, the sound of seagulls and of waves lapping the shore, dolphin watching, shore fishing, flounder gigging, and crabbing, swimming and snorkeling in protected waters, long walks at low tide, star-gazing at night, the occasional manatee sighting, and a well-stocked bookshelf. This beach home is the place for you if you desire a getaway from your usual fast-paced lifestyle, in an old-timey Florida setting. There are two bedrooms and baths upstairs and an additional bedroom and bath downstairs. The downstairs also boasts a full kitchen and rec room with billiards/ping pong table. There is a television upstairs and down, and we offer WiFi for those who feel a need to remain 'connected'.
Other features of the surrounding area include:
Tate’s Hell Nature Trail, the historic Carrabelle Lighthouse and Museum, Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum, Dog Island ferry excursions, charter fishing, glass-bottom boat rides at Wakulla Springs, Panacea's Gulf Specimen Marine Lab (with touch pools for children), and a variety of local seafood eateries. Located about an hour’s drive from Tallahassee, and only twenty minutes from St. George Island and Apalachicola, this retreat can be tailored to your own adventurous spirit. Come and discover the true meaning of “The Forgotten Coast”.

About: Here I am in my father's arms, along with other family members, representing 3 out of 5 generations who have enjoyed lazy days at Carrabelle Beach. This photo was taken at Palms and Pines in 1963. So many memories! I am a first grade teacher, living in Mobile, Alabama, but am still making memories at our beach house with family and friends.
Why Carrabelle, FL, USA:
I inherited this property in 1983. Because it has been in our family for 5 generations, it harbors a sense of warmth and continuity. Our home has evolved over the years, and offers the modern conveniences one would expect. The decor is simple, yet comfortable. What it may lack in sophistication is compensated for in character and charm.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most unique aspect of 'Palms and Pines' is its secluded and almost completely private location. Carrabelle Beach remains virtually untouched, yet has proximity to many areas of interest and diversity. The area is teeming with wildlife, much of which can be observed without even leaving the deck!
