Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage Directly On Private, (Sleeps 4) White-Sand Beach

Completely renovated Gulf-front/beach-front cottage allows you to rest or play as much as you want and literally get away from it all. Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the screened porch that will make you feel like you're on a luxury cruise ship plying the tropics. Walk the beach from one end to the other collecting sea shells or swimming or sunbathing.

The home is smartly and comfortably furnished. The bathroom allows you to take a shower while looking out to the Gulf and beach. Bedroom furniture is relaxing and new. Prepare meals in the kitchen while gazing out to the Gulf and sparkling white-sand beach or while visiting with family on the screened porch or in the living room.

Home is a perfect get-away for major holidays or an FSU football game. Or drop a child off at an FSU camp while you and your spouse stay a week at the beach! The cottage is great for a family of four or two couples. Relax and do nothing but watch dolphins and walk the beach or fish or jet ski or play golf nearby or go antiquing at nearby towns (Carrabelle, Crawfordville, Apalachicola) and of course, come to eat the best and freshest seafood in the world!

About Chris

Was first introduced to Alligator Point by local friends from Tallahassee in the mid-1990's and have been coming to Alligator Point every year since for the Memorial Day Weekend Captain Jack Fishing Tournament that is held at the Alligator Point Marina. By the way, you must visit the End Of The World Oasis at Alligator Point Marina and have a deep fried Grouper sandwich -- the absolute best! And if you catch it, they'll even fry it up fresh!

Chris purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris chose Alligator Point

Because of my familiarity with Alligator Point and the many good times I've had here, decided to finally buy a home. After visiting several homes, all it took was one time out on the screened porch of my cottage to know that this was the place. I always feel like I'm right over the Gulf when sitting on the screened porch. And not only are the sunsets spectacular, but nights with a full moon are also just as stunning!

What makes this cottage unique

The views of the gulf and the beach are priceless not to mention the times that I've been able to sit on the screened porch sipping my favorite beverage and actually watch dolphins swim almost onto the beach as they feed in the very shallow water. Absolutely beautiful!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to relax. The house had everything you needed. A very quiet and peaceful place to get away. It was fun watching the dolphins every morning. We will definitely be coming back.

Could not have been any better

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully quiet & peaceful. The cottage was exactly as advertised. It contained everything a couple (or 2 couples) might need for a relaxing vacation at the beach. The porpoise (bottlenose dolphin) were there everyday, often swimming all the way up to the shore. The screened in porch was an ideal place to have a cup of coffee, read or enjoy the scenery. Some of the best, fresh seafood I've eaten anywhere was at the Tropical Trader Shrimp Company (better quality & value than Angelo & Son's). We really enjoyed the local flavor of authentic Florida in this area - these Floridians have southern accents. We took day trips to Apalachicola & Tallahassee - both were very enjoyable. I recommend this cottage & the area for anyone that "wants to get away from it all" without giving up modern conveniences like internet, cable, a well-stocked kitchen along with sheets, towels, soap, toilet tissue & paper towels included in the rent. For 2 or 4 people, this cottage is a great value.

Lovely and quiet!

  • 4 of 5

The property is right on the beach, exactly what we were looking for. The week we stayed (first week of October), there were not many people at all...also what we were hoping for. The house is just as described to make our visit great! We had a lovely week and enjoyed the house. We would definitely recommend and stay there again if we get the opportunity!

Located just South of Tallahassee, Alligator Point is a non-commercial beach made up of single family vacation homes. There are no commercial enterprises(other than the marina) on the peninsula. Most the time you feel like you have a private beach all to yourself. It's like taking a step back in time.

There is ample wildlife to observe, miles of beach to explore and close to restaurants and shopping. The fishing is great right off the beach or on any number of charter boats in nearby Panacea or Carrabelle. It is adjacent to a State Park and federal wildlife area with picnic areas and hiking trails. Also, Wakulla Springs State Park, the Panacea Gulf Aquarium and the pre-Civil War port town of Apalachicola are all terrific day trips.
