Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath

This spectacular beach front home in SummerCamp Beach is truly a vacation home like no other. Perfect for large or extended families, this Gulf Front home has 3 master suites all with a private luxury baths. Two bunkrooms provide 8 more beds offering plenty of sleeping arrangements for children of all ages. A gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry will delight those who truly want a first class experience. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the ocean setting, this home puts you at the edge of the water with breath taking views for literally miles out to the Gulf of Mexico. A gentle breeze awaits you on the spacious screened porch that wraps the entire front of the house. Down below features a large gathering area where you can shower outdoors after swimming or beach combing. Two large family rooms allow for total living space flexibility with flat screen tvs in every bedroom. The unique architecture of the home provides massive windows throughout, offering amazing views of the entire beach area. With no neighbors to the left of right, you will feel like you have stepped into your private paradise. This home is truly one of a kind.

'Happy Ours' is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family is possible. Located just 45 minutes south of the Tallahassee airport, getting here is quite convenient, but leaving will be very hard.

Beautiful Home, Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for 3 years in a row and we look forward to returning every year! The home is spacious and clean with plenty of bedrooms for a multi-family gathering. We would highly recommend this location to anyone hoping to get away for a restful stay on the water. We use the entire house and enjoy every minute of it! The wrap-around porch is a perfect place to watch the sun rise or set and we spend much of our time using it. The beach is small, but it's great for walks and the kayaks are a family favorite!

There are three things we made note of after leaving:

1. There is no pizza cutter in the kitchen and that would be a nice addition

2. One of the legs of one of the kitchen stools falls off pretty easily and should probably be fixed

3. Upstairs shared bathroom shower drains very slowly

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house. Even though the weather was cool we enjoyed beach walks and near by parks. The house was huge and quite lovely. It had everything we needed. Only down side was lack of near by grocery store. My suggestion is for people to stock up before arrival.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Happy Ours over the Christmas holiday was wonderful. It was exactly what our family needed after a difficult year. Because we lost Pops this year, we were all dreading Christmas, our first without him. Our stay at Happy Ours was our way of starting a new tradition that provided us with a break from our traditional way of celebrating Christmas and enough distraction to actually enjoy the holiday.

Happy Ours met and exceeded our expectations, and we all brought home fantastic holiday memories. Thank you for opening your home to us!

Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! Perfect spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We came as a family because this is the one thing our son wanted for a graduation present. What a great choice! We could not have been more impressed with the house and the location. Spacious living right on the beach, enjoying the sea life and the birds. There’s a nest of eagles in the trees to the right of the house and sitting on the deck in the mornings watching them was spectacular. We took advantage of the kayaks and enjoyed the wonderful surprise of a dolphin swimming right beside us!! Everyone from our 19 year old to my 79 year old mother had fun. It was spectacular and we can’t wait to come again.

Love this beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting this for a Womans retreat and once again we were not disappointed! There is plenty of space for everyone and the sunrise and sunsets are spectacular! The home is well appointed and Erica is fast to respond to any concerns. We loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat...the stairs are a little much for my 70 plus ladies but absolutely worth it for the peace of this tranquil haven!

More than half of this coastal community has been set aside for conservation, featuring open space and conservation land, beautiful beaches, wildlife habitats and undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods. Fish, canoe or swim in the Gulf of Mexico and then stroll along boardwalks winding through the woods in search of fireflies.

Should your wanderlust take you farther, SummerCamp Beach is surrounded by a national forest, a state forest as well as the St. George Island and Ochlockonee River State Parks.
