About the Property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, with a large screened porch overlooking the water.

This 3 BDR home has 2 bedrooms with king beds, and one with 2 single beds and a queen size futon, sleeping up to 8. The home is very family friendly with many features that accommodate children and/or handicapped. There are no stairs, and the sidewalk goes right to the dock, making access easy for everyone, and for pulling carts. There is a large walk-in shower in one bath, and a private outside shower. The fully equipped laundry room is huge and has lots of storage. Cable TV & high speed internet service are provided. There are 5 televisions in the home.

The dock is perfect for outboard boats up to 30ft., jet skies, and kayaks. Lots of trout, redfish and crab have been caught off of the dock! Boats may be tied off and docked overnight with owners prior approval, and there is a boat launch 1/4 miles from our house. We have plenty of room for boat trailer storage and extra vehicles. From our dock, it's an easy boat ride to head offshore- or stay inshore for some of the best Tarpon, Mackerel , Redfish and Speckled Trout fishing found anywhere in Florida. If a storm blows up while you're on the water, it's a quick ride back to the safety of the dock. There is a large covered deck at the end of the dock with a fish cleaning station; or you may want to sit in the shade and fish, or just hang out and enjoy the view.

A perfect retreat on Florida's Forgotten Coast with 180 degree views of bay and gulf waters just feet from the home. From the dock, you are just a short boat ride to some of the best inshore fishing for Trout, Redfish and Tarpon in Florida. 1/2 mile from the dock you can load the boat with scallops, in season. After a day on the water take a ride to the 200 year old town of Apalachicola for dinner at one of the many restaurants serving the finest, fresh seafood anywhere in Florida. The Owl Cafe is a favorite. Save time for a walk through the interesting and unusual antique stores around town. We also recommend taking time to visit Wakulla Springs, St. Marks Wildlife Preserve and St. George Island. There are miles of trails to walk and bike ride at all three places.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1991

About the owner: Our parents bought this home for it's beautiful view and easy access to the wonderful bay & gulf fishing and loved every minute they were in the home. Mom and Dad have passed the home down to the family. Now their 4 sons, grandkids and great grandkids have the same love for the home, and continue to build memories.

Why the Owner Chose Carrabelle, FL, USA:
Our home is perfect for family vacations. My parents wanted a home that we could all go to with our families- not only have a wonderful view, but have access to the gulf for our boating and water sport activities. Our father was a contractor and completely rebuilt the home when they bought it, and it has been totally remodeled again since then. There is an awesome porch (12X40) which faces the water and dock, where we idle away the hours when we are not on the water. We enjoy the laid-back and quite atmosphere that this part of Florida offers compared to the miles of condo's and tourist- packed places elsewhere. It is truly the Forgotten Coast, and we hope that our home will bring our guests the same joy it has given to us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are few places like ours, where one can sit on the screened back porch in the mornings with your first cup of hot coffee and watch pelicans sail by and mullet jumping at the water's edge just 100 feet way. Then, you pack a picnic lunch, head for the water, and come home in time to cook and entertain for dinner- watching the boats come in! And look, Mom, no stairs!
