Overview

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.

About Stuart and Terry Bennett

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.

Stuart and Terry Bennett purchased this house in 2014

Why Stuart and Terry Bennett chose Florida North Central

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Outstanding Seaside Stay

  • 5 of 5

It's amazing the extent these owners have gone to to try to make you comfortable! From the outstanding dishes, silverware, kitchen appliances, to the fluffy towels and rich bedding, and comfortable furnishing, we felt like we were home away from home. Try as I may, there was nothing missing or that we could complain about except for the endless RAIN, and I don't think the owners were responsible for that. A great first utilization of VRBO!

Very nice and clean

Great place to go too, but lookout for the Oyster bars!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are please that you liked our home! We hope you'll visit again someday! Yes, the oyster bars can be a problem unless you stay in the dredged canals until you get out in the ocean! If you don't notice the markers, someone local will always be happy to show you, especially our neighbors if you are there during the weekend! Take care! Stu and Terry Bennett

Worth every penny!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed the week after Christmas. The house was exactly the way it was described, if not better. The owners are very nice. Attention to detail is all throughout the entire house. It was very clean. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the items you would expect to have. There were a generous amount of towels for guests, as well as bed linens. The beds were comfortable and clean. We would definitely stay there again!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our home! We were especially pleased to see the pictures you sent of all the fish you caught! It was fun to see all the artwork your children did for us on our refrigerator. You might have a couple of budding artists on your hands! Thank you again for the goodie basket that you left for us! My sweet tooth was very happy! Hoping you will come back again! Sincerely, Terry Bennett
