About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Would you like to escape the electronics age? Come to get away at old St Teresa where there is no phone, no TV and no internet. A place inhabited by families that are descendants of people who came here in the late 1800’s in mule drawn wagons with chickens, cows and pigs in tow. Sitting high on a bluff, surrounded by twisted scrub oaks and facing a spectacular view of the gulf, this place is a nature lover’s delight and child’s heaven. Watch the porpoise’ play in front of you and listen to the hoarse cry of the majestic grey Heron. Sandpipers of all types run along the beach as you walk. The rare white squirrels will entertain you with their antics. Check out the flats during low tide and be amazed by the abundance of sea life. Watch the sunset from the neighborhood dock or on the private deck by the beach in front of the house.

Read a book, play cards, take the best nap you will ever have. With no undertow the bay is a very nice place to swim and great place to fish off the dock. And if you have a boat there is a private buoy out in front of our cottage. Boat landing is within 2 miles of our place.
Cook fresh seafood you can purchase from Myway in Panacea or go out for seafood at the Seinyard Restaurant, a short distance from the house in a waterfront cutting edge architectural building. There is also Angelo’s famous for fine seafood in a beautiful building perched over the Ochlocknee river. Also casual and tropical Shrimp Trading Company close by in a beachcomber cottage. Outside dining is available in all three places.

If you stay more than a weekend a day trip to Apalachicola (less than an hour away) is a must. One of the oldest towns in our country and famous for its oysters this historic place has been lovingly restored with all its charm. There you can visit Downtown Books, Petunias (a shop for animal lovers) and a myriad of shops such as Coast and Oystercatcher (Casual Clothes), Funky Fiddler (Painted cypress and one of kind pieces) and the Apalachicola sponge shop which not only sells authentic sponges but treasures from all over the world. There are many many more shops plus a large choice of places to eat like the Owl Restaurant (*****), Tamara’s (South American cuisine) and The Grill with their wonderful seafood gumbo, The historic Gibson Inn not to be missed for at least a drink but also includes fine dining.
