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.

Can't Wait to Return!!!

  • 5 of 5

Waking up to a beautiful sunrise, with peace and quiet -- what more could you want for vacation? We've been coming to Carrabelle the past 5 years and Summer Camp Beach, "Happy Ours" is by far the best in the area for our large family. We traveled with kids, grandkids, niece & nephew - 12 in all. The home accommodated everyone with ease, never feeling crowded. The top floor was like a separate home, with a living room for the kids to watch TV and play games, table for cards or games, and well equipped laundry, king suite/bath overlooking the gulf and 2 bunk rooms. Main floor has 2 King suites with baths and additional ½ bath. All bedrooms and baths are large. The combination kitchen/dining/living/family area is beautifully laid out and provides enough space for everyone's comfort, but still feel like part of the group. The whole house entertainment system allows you to listen to music in every room and outside. The screened porch is the BEST part of the house -- enjoy the gulf breeze; watch the birds, fish and boaters; and never worry about getting eaten by bugs! There are plenty of beach chairs and toys available - don't bother bringing. Gas grill downstairs, shower for returning from the beach and the pool a short walk. We also used the kayaks and canoe. The house feels very secluded, like your private oasis. Our only criticism would be needing more pots/pans and the lack of a separate pantry for our food, but we were able to overcome that by rearranging a kitchen cabinet. Erika did an awesome job responding to all our needs and answering questions before and during our vacation. Overall, the house helped make this a great vacation for the whole family with a unanimous vote to return again next year.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great stay here it was very roomy and the views are amazing! We saw dolphins one evening and there was a baby shark that came to visit in the afternoons! The tide went down in the evening and my son loved to walk out and fish during that time. We enjoyed the pool that is only a short distance from the house. The kayaks were very convient to use. Carabelle is only @ 10 minutes away and had any supplies we needed. We made the drive to St George island and had a blast there also the kids loved the big waves and collected a lot of sea shells. We hope to come back soon!

Our extended family has been vacationing at Alligator Point over 40 years so we decided to try something new this year because we found this house on VRBO! I am glad that we decided to try something new-this house is amazing and perfect for multiple families. The three master suites was just right for my extended family and nieces/nephews in the bunk bed rooms upstairs. The wraparound screened porches were great anytime of the day! Although I missed the waves at Alligator Point, the clear beach area right outside our door was great for kayaking, paddleboarding, fishing, and watching the jumping mullet! We also watched the porpoises, fish, turtles, small sharks throughout the week! The pool area was great and the boardwalks made for a nice stroll through the grounds! The price was just right also-this house on another beach would have been double the price. Erika, the property manager, answered my emails immediately and made the rental process very easy. I highly recommend that you try this place out if you are looking for a laid-back, relaxing time!

The home was clean and well maintained! Beyond anything I had expected!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with 11 members of my family from Ohio. When we pulled up to the property I was speechless! It's the most beautiful home with a fantastic view of the ocean! The home was everything and more than what I expected. We ordered Big Daddy's pizza the first night and the service and pizza were really good. IGA grocery store and Dollar General are 15 minutes down the road very convenient for groceries etc... we had ages of kids ranging from 8-16 and the shallow water steps away from the front door was perfect for playing an exploring during low tide. We found horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs caught fish and caught sting rays! We were the only ones at the pool both times we went. We also had a blast when the water was calm using the kayaks! We visited the Gulf Specimen Aquarium in Pancea, Florida on a rainy morning, just 20 minutes away. The kids really enjoyed that. We also drove 30 minutes to Saint George Island, the kids wanted to see big waves for the first time, I highly recommend visiting the Island it's breathtaking. Erika is wonderful and attentive to any needs or questions. This is a very remote, private and relaxing way to vacation if that's what you're looking for this home is absolutely perfect!! We will definitely be booking again!

Mothers Day Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at "Happy Ours". House is very roomy and accommodated our family of 12 very well. The younger set enjoyed the pool and the kayaks. The only problem encountered was the stairs, My wife and I are both 75 and we don't to stairs very well.
