About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This rental has breathtaking gulf views and has direct gulf access from the canal located directly beside the house. This short canal ends at our large over the canal deck which covers 2 boat lifts and a large fish cleaning station. Home has wrap around decks with plenty of room for relaxing outside dining, watching the wildlife and viewing the beautiful sunsets.

This cozy home (900 square feet) sleeps 4 to 6 with 1 1/2 baths. There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen and the other with a double bed and a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. Each bedroom has French doors that lead out on the outside decks that offer unique views. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you might need, including ice maker, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender, microwave, dishwasher and some spices. There also is a gas grill on the deck for your use as well as a picnic table and other deck furniture for your enjoyment. Home also includes washer and dryer.

In the living room there is a flat screen TV that has Dish network and a DVD player for your use. The DVR has many movies that have been recorded if you feel like a movie. Recently a new cell tower was added which is a real pleasure since there wasn't one until now. We have installed WiFi for your use.

In our yard at the end of the canal is a fire ring for your use on cooler evenings to enjoy the birds and sunsets.

Since there are no grocery stores in town,, we suggest you do your shopping prior to your stay in Horseshoe Beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula which we love. We live in a log home that we built ourselves, mostly as a camp, when our kids were little. We live on Conway Lake with Lake Superior 1/4 mile away. After our kids grew up and left home, and after we retired, we decided to sell our home in Marquette and move to our camp, 20 minutes north of Big Bay, MI. We love the peace and the beauty of nature and feel very fortunate to live the lifestyle that we have chosen.

Why the Owner Chose Horseshoe Beach, FL, USA:
When we decided to get away from winter for a month or two, we rented a home in Old Town, FL. We went for a drive one day to find some local shrimp and someone suggested Horseshoe Beach. We fell in love with it right away. In driving around, we noted that this house was for sale. We had not planned to buy, but decided to check the house out and we both felt it was meant to be! We were so impressed with the views and the town itself, that we made an offer. We love it here and now spend 3 1/2 months here every winter.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fishing, fishing and fishing! This is the place to be! A quiet, peaceful place to unwind and relax. Not as many people as there is in a lot of other towns/cities in Florida. And, we have become friends with many people in town, who appreciate the same.
