Great house

We enjoyed our stay at the Crab Shack. . The bunkbed room was great for the teens. They also enjoyed the ping pong table. Convenient walk to the beach.

"The Crab Shack"

  • 5 of 5

The Crab Shack had everything you needed for a quiet getaway at the Forgotten Coast. The house was supplied with everything we needed and plenty of sleeping quarters. The kitchen had all of the essentials. Close to places to dine and the beach use just wonderful. It is a great area to explore and there are many things to do and see. We highly recommend the "The Crab Shack". We found working with Erika and the Starfish Vacations group easy and hassle free from check-in to check-out.

Great weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the Crab Shack. Stayed here for the weekend of an FSU game. Real easy ride back and forth to Tallahassee. Cabin was great and very comfortable for our family of 5. Very quiet and relaxing and a short walk to the beach. The ping pong table was a HUGE hit and so much fun.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Crab Shack on St. Teresa Beach. It was just a short walk to the beach itself, and the water is still very warm in September. The whole area is calm, quiet, and beautiful.

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The Crab Shack was great. Very nicely decorated, clean, well stocked kitchen,and nice linens. Very comfortable! Daughter loved the bunkbeds! Do not let not being directly on the beach sway your decision. You can see the water and the walk took a minute. I have stayed at places directly on the beach that may have taken longer to walk. Path is very clearly marked. All the neighbors are friendly. Great place for kids. Very little wave action, lots of sea life to explore--hermit crabs, horseshoe crabs and fish. We anchored our boat off the shore a bit so very convenient to go out for the day. This is the place to be if you are looking to relax and get away from it all. Its only a short drive to Apalachicola and St George Island if you want to go exploring for the day or get a bite to eat. I would highly recommend choosing the Crab Shack for you next beach visit:)
