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! 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!

Perfect home in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay at Happy Ours! The house was AMAZING and our family of 6 adults and 2 kiddos had more than enough room. We have been to the area before and the bugs, beach, shallow water were expected and not an issue. We rented a paddle board and used the community kayaks and saw dolphins most of the days we were out on the water. The pool was a hit with our little ones and was never crowded.

During this visit, we rented a pontoon and made the trip to Dog Island. The shells and waves were HUGE and we had a wonderful time. We spent a day at the beach on beautiful St George Island and took a day trip to Apalachicola for shopping and dinner at Up the Creek Raw Bar.

This was one of my favorite vacations and the house allowed us all to be together, still have privacy, and truly enjoy the wonders of nature.

Our Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the beautiful home of Erika Watson. A very spacious home and beautiful property. Sitting on the deck and enjoying the ocean and weather can be described in one word: Salubrious. We enjoyed the ocean and the nearby community pool. We were close enough to visit Carrabelle Beach and St. George Island State Park Beach and where we fished at the pier. We went to Wakulla Springs one day for a interesting boat ride on the river. But most of all we enjoyed the wonderful home and the peace and quiet ! We have been to Florida about 20 times -- all over the State. Nothing even comes close to what we enjoyed this year.
