If you are looking for lots of nightlife or outlet malls, this property may not be a fit. St Teresa is more of a destination...just you, a private beach front community and nature.. The beach and Gulf are right outside the door. Carrabelle and Panacea are the closest towns, each about 13 miles to the west and east, respectively. Apalachicola and St George Island are about 35 miles to the west.

Beautiful residence at an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We had a small family gathering here and it was perfect! The home is spacious, with enough room for gathering lots of people together for meals and games, with the benefit of spaces to get away from the crowd and read in peace. Two large covered porches offered areas to be out of doors even with a bit of rain, plus the ping pong table was a big hit! Scott and his manager Ann were very responsive to our questions before and during our stay helping quickly to resolve the inevitable glitches that occur. The location, right on the beach with white sand and dolphins! plus a public walking pier, was as close to having your own private beach as you can get. It is also close to St. George Isle where there is another great swimming beach, and the town of Apalachacola which has a variety of restaurants and shopping. We also recommend Wakulla Springs, a state park where you can swim with the manatees ( we saw many of them on our boat tour (thanks Brian!), plus alligators and many interesting bird species). Also close by is Bald Point state park where you can see horseshoe crab and if you are lucky, sea turtles!

Two thing to note: This is what I would call a "remote" location, that is, any major shopping is in Tallahassee, about 1 hour drive away. There are plenty of gas stations and convenience stores close by, plus restaurants and attractions within a 30-40 minute drive, but if you need Costco or Publix, plan ahead. Also, the room with the bunk-beds is definitely for children.

Having said that, our time there was very fun and we would return again if our plans bring us back to the Gulf Coast.

Thanks Scott, this will be another great family memory!

We loved it and will be back.

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at the home, the beach and even taking on an FSU game. The grandchildren were on the beach much of Sunday and Monday, and told their parents they wanted to stay longer. In the evenings they played on the screen porch and the lower level inside. It worked well.

The home was well appointed and very comfortable. We have discussed that we would come back to this home and St Teresa area again.

A suggestion would be to detail TV and remotes, although kids who a dish figured it out.

Thanks for sharing your home with us , Bill Kooymans

In short, it's awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year for our group of 4 couples to stay at this wonderful home. And we'll almost certainly be back. It's just a great house, wonderful view and beach, and very nice owners. Plenty of room for each couple. Location is unbelievable - basically your own private beach. The sunrise views are incredible from the second story porch. Sit back and soak it all in or take a morning walk on the beach. You won't regret it. We highly recommend it!!

Perfect location for what our family needed

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the amount of people we had (8). Due to the family dynamics and age of the grandkids (early 20’s), we had to spread out a bit. Everyone had privacy when wanted, two family rooms allowed for space, two kitchens for extra storage of food and drinks. We did not want the touristy atmosphere on this trip and this place did not fail. If you’re looking for parasailing and tiki bars with obnoxious music and the nightlife, this isn’t for you. If you’re looking for spectacular seafood and quiet beauty with dolphins in the backdrop, then this is it.
