About Glenn and Lawson Smith
We both grew up in nearby Tallahassee and have enjoyed the Carrabelle area since the early 1970s. Having been on fishing charters out of Carrabelle years ago when in our teens, we have always loved the idea of owning a riverfront place as boaters in our adulthood. Lawson is a longtime educator, having spent years as a teacher, principal, and now serving in administration at a small Christian school in Tallahassee. Glenn enjoyed a 25 year career in airlines and at a travel agency also in Tallahassee. After retiring from the travel industry, he has been a property manager for beach homes between Alligator Point and Watercolor, Florida . Lawson and Glenn have 5 grown children, in their 20s, who have also enjoyed growing up going to Carrabelle and nearby areas such as St. George Island and Apalachicola. While already owning a vacation rental on both St. George Island and beautiful Lake Talquin, located 35 minutes north of Carrabelle, we jumped at the opportunity of purchasing a riverfront condo when it became available in 2016. This condo's location is very unique and breathtaking! We'd love for you to enjoy the salt life of Nautical Wheeler and the Pirates Landing neighborhood. Thank You for being our guest on the coast!

Why Glenn and Lawson Smith chose Carrabelle
We chose this property because if we're going to stay in the area, there is nothing like being on the riverfront and having the phenomenal views from the balconies! Boating access and boat parking is an added bonus. The luxury, style, architecture, and location are second to none!

Location was perfect for fishing and boating over to Dog Island. Docking the boat in front was a big plus! Also close enough to good restaurants. The condo was nicely decorated and clean. Nice big comfortable bed. The bathrooms were extremely small but were fine for the weekend. Lovely screened porch. The owners were very helpful and responsive. Check in and check out were easy! We will definitely be back!
The condo is perfect! It is so cute and cozy, with a great view of the canal.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Clean and Bright
I made a last-minute reservation to stay in Carrabelle near family over the New Year's weekend. Glenn and Lawson were quick to respond and very accommodating. Renting was super easy thanks to VRBO and their app. The condo was clean and bright and had everything we needed (including Netflix!) for our short weekend stay. Thank you Glenn and Lawson!
We're so glad you celebrated the New Years at Nautical Wheeler! Thank You for your many generous compliments! We hope that you will return one day soon!

A writer's vacation
What I can say? Imagine a small town with very few people that you will see during The Fall season since this is the time I want. First off and most important I lost a lot of WiFi so try to print out a map prior to coming here went to get into your home that you have rented there is WiFi there. You will see a fishing boat store on the left side after you cross the bridge and right as soon as you see it turn left and then from there you will see signs of the condominium. Once your parked in your own space, going up the stairs, the first thing you notice are the sounds of water. You have a Florida room that I myself kept my fishing equipment in. A great place to have a cup of coffee to look outside. Before the next to the stairs, there's a washer & dryer there. What is so nice, there's detergent, fabric softener there for my usage even though I brought my own. The brands they use are up to par: tide, bounty, Etc. A broom & dustpan also in which you will need to use. The house is pretty much clean but I think maybe the housekeeper likes to sweep up the sand underneath the rug lol. Go up the stairs, is a nice living room, dining area, kitchen. I love to cook for myself and for my family. This kitchen was beautiful in my eyes. The owners leave some coffee, tea, a lot of seasonings, and even olive oil. The way the house is set up is to make it as easy as possible for you and not to stress so much. The nearest groceries is Family Dollar which is a little high priced but it is there if you need so. Prior to getting to your vacation home, stop by at the last Walmart if you want to save some money on vegetables, meat, or snacks. Nearby is a family-owned Fish seafood store. It is literally across the street near by Family Dollar. Take a look in there. The cost of the see-through there is reasonable and fresh. Once it's gone and is gone for the day so be there early in the morning. There is one small bar restaurant 5 steps away. The staff is very friendly. Order the seafood platter. Well worth the cost.The next set of steps, there's A full bathroom on the way. Last, as you're go up the stairs, a reading room to Lounge. Bedroom is cute, cozy, & relaxing. I brought my own pillow & sheet. Did not use any of my sheets. The bed was nice comfortable, & quality. I was able to watch the movies every nightly & football. This is a perfect place for 2. Fish over the bridge. The beautiful sandy beach is nearby down the road. A great place for quiet time & to relax!!!
Thank You very much for your incredible review! We love hosting guests that enjoy life, nature, the coast, and the little things in life. We'd love to host you back one day!

We had a wonderful 6 night stay. The place was beautiful.
The condo was very clean and had a kitchen that had everything. Very nice view of the river. The air, TV, and internet were excellent. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The owner was so nice. We will definitely return for another visit.
Thank You very much for your review! You covered a lot and we appreciate it! We would be thrilled to host you back at "Nautical Wheeler" and thank you for your business!

Carrabelle is a sleepy fishing village centrally located within Florida's "Forgotten Coast". This deep water river port is the last stop along the
Gulf IntraCoastal Waterway before boats take the open water journey to where the IntraCoastal Waterway continues south at Tarpon Springs, (near Tampa). Therefore, enjoy watching the boats and yachts cruise past your balcony as they fuel up prior or upon arriving from their open sea journey.
Carrabelle is near 3 lighthouses, hiking trails within state and national forests, St. James Golf and Country Club, (open to non-members), shopping in Carrabelle and Apalachicola, along with the top rated beach in the U.S.A., St. George Island.
There are multiple sights to see nearby, such as the World War II museum in Carrabelle, St. Marks Wildlife Refuge, and Wakulla Springs which is one of the world's largest and deepest fresh water springs.
