About Kris Hebert

The house was initially built by my grandparents who had lived in Tallahassee since the 1940s. We are all FSU Seminoles and call Tallahassee home.

Kris Hebert purchased this house in 1964

Why Kris Hebert chose Florida North Central

This property has been in our family since 1964. We have many wonderful memories exploring the wildlife and playing in the water. Check out the pictures of the view from our deck. There is truly something for everyone no matter the age.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite experience is sitting on the upper deck with our cold beverages; watching the sun set while the birds soar and the the porpoises feed.

Great location. Welcoming and comfortable. Kayaks a bonus. Beautiful sunsets and dolphins in the bay

  • 4 of 5

Large for the price point, generous sized rooms. Stocked kitchen.Lots of privacy around the upper balcony to enjoy the view. Was quiet throughout most of our stay. Travelled to nearby sites St Mark's, Walluka Springs and Walluka beach. But mostly spent time enjoying kayaking, dolphin and bird watching and relaxing. Would recommend for a relaxing nature filled trip.

We really enjoyed our stay. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful retreat. This is it. The sunsets were beautiful. We planned our days to be home for the sunsets.

Great value, nice location

  • 4 of 5

The house is great, plenty of room and good value. The canal is shallow and dries up at low tide. Good for skiffs, no good for bigger boats. It does need a dock, rocks and rubble on the shore are a hazard.

SHHHHHH....Don't Let the Secret Out!

  • 5 of 5

I'm almost scared to share what I really think of this place because I want to keep the secret of what an amazing get away this was for my family. Perfect! If you want a get way from everything and enjoy a piece of Florida that not many get to experience, this is the place. My son is a student in Tallahassee so the location was perfect for him to get away from campus life for a quick weekend. This home was very comfort for all of us. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place. Be prepared, the closest Grocery store is 30 minutes away and the convenience store that is closer closes early. The kids had a good time fishing, kayaking and exploring the area. I had a great time watching them put down the electronics and enjoy life! The neighbors and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. We will be back!

Cute Place Right on the Water

  • 5 of 5

Cute cozy place right on the water. So peaceful and quiet and away from everything. Loved see all the wildlife so close. Home was well stocked with everything we needed. The water was perfect for paddle sports.
