About the Property

1 hour south of Tallahassee, 1.3 miles from the beach

Looking for a compromise between OUTSTANDING FISHING opportunities and a LAVISH BEACH RETREAT? Look no further. Come be our guests at "Bluewater Breeze", we've got everything you need for an awesome vacation.
As owners, we proudly manage all 4 of our vacation properties ourselves and our business philosophy is give you much more than you expect at a price lower than you expect. We try to give you a resort-like experience for a hotel price. We also want to help you get the very most out of your trip. We know the hardest part about going to a new place, is figuring out where to go. We have most of those answers and are happy to share them. If you want to fish, we will tell you where to go with GPS #'s included. We will tell you where the best beaches are and the best boat trips. " Hint- Dog Island"
If the weather doesn't cooperate, we've got Netflix with unlimited internet too. The condo is amazing, and so is the pool and spa. We like to think of Carrabelle as a center HUB for really cool day trips. Within 20-40 miles you have St George Island, Apalachicola, Wakulla Springs, Cape San Blas, Port St Joe, just to name a few.
One of the greatest things about boating in the area, is the barrier islands protect you from the waves, no more getting beat up with spray over the bow. Stress free boating we like to call it. 5 mins and you are at a deserted beach of Dog Island with the sand and fish all to yourself. A brand new boat / kayak / Paddleboard rental company just opened up right down the street for very affordable rates. Please check them out at I could go on and on, but I will describe the rest below.

Our condo is a 1 bedroom, 2 bath, 3 story unit in "Pirate's Landing", a recent development on the secluded area of Timber Island. Don't let the 1 bedroom fool you, it will sleep 6 very comfortably, with a queen size bed in the master and two premium sleeper sofas with cloudcoil technology ( these are not ordinary sleepers, 8 inch hybrid coil/inflatable mattresses with adjustable firmness ). Professionally decorated with a fun beach vibe, and luxury furnishings, you will feel pampered the minute you open the door. Sumptuous bedding awaits you after a day of fun in the sun.

A wonderful location with the CLOSEST ACCESS point to the inlet of the Carrabelle river, only MINUTES FROM THE GULF. Carrabelle offers some very unusual benefits that have strong appeal to fishermen, families, and snowbirds alike. Just over a mile gets you to beautiful Carrabelle Beach with lush sand, clear water, and "NO WAVES", perfect for the youngsters playing in the shallows, with plenty of sea life to find. The uncrowded beach is equally well suited for just relaxing with a book. A 3 mile boat ride (or water taxi) will take you across the bay to a RESTRICTED ACCESS BEACH WONDERLAND called "Dog Island" that can only be reached by boat or plane. Pristine beaches with great shelling await its visitors. Launch a kayak right from the property and get lost in a natural maze of tidal creeks surrounding Timber Island. Want another adventure? Take a sunset boat cruise up the river to see some beautiful homes and eventually some gorgeous marshlands. Make sure to bring a camera or your favorite bottle of wine for an unforgettable journey into "old Florida and the Forgotten Coast".

PRIME FISHING AREAS ARE MINUTES AWAY. Unlike other parts of the Big Bend region, QUALITY OFFSHORE FISHING and diving are found WITHIN 10 miles making for easy boat rides and small fuel bills. New to the area and want to catch fish? No problem! Our guest book has some of OUR FAVORITE FISHING SPOTS with GPS #'s included so you don't have to spend your whole vacation searching for spots. We also include some cool recommendations of places to go that only the locals know.

"Bluewater Breeze" immediately overlooks the pool (literally 30 feet away), so you can be within easy reach of your kids while still relaxing on the screened in patio or one of the two balconies. We can help you plan your vacation with an extensive list of activity recommendations for all ages in the guest book. Fishing, Diving, Hiking, Kayaking, Shelling, Boating, Beachcombing, Birdwatching, or just lounging at the pool, we've got it all. Come wet a line and get some sand between yuour toes at "Bluewater Breeze" You're going to LOVE IT HERE!!
