A short walk down the back steps lead to the best beach views on the island. Grab a beach chair, your best friend and a favorite book and dig your toes in the sand along the water's edge. And if you have a fishing pole, make sure to pay close attention because Alligator Point is known as one of the best fishing spots on the Gulf.

About Mike & Laura Glancy
We are native Floridians living in Atlanta for the past 25 years and desperate for more beach time back home. We have three children.
Mike & Laura Glancy purchased this House in 2016
Why Mike & Laura Glancy chose Alligator Point
The Tin Cup Palace is our 25th Anniversary gift to each other. We love the sugar white sand beach and natural beauty surrounding Alligator Point. This home has beautiful views from all living spaces with windows across the back to look out over the gulf. When we first stayed on Alligator Point we were greeted every morning by dolphins playing along the shore as pelicans and seagulls hovered above. We saw manatees and turtles swim to the shore as we sat in our beach chairs overlooking the water.
What makes this House unique
Peaceful and quiet. This is the forgotten coast. It's charming and reminiscent of Old Florida before the strip malls and crowds cluttered the highways and beaches.

The Tin Cup Palace is a wonderful place to spend a week relaxing on Alligator Point. Beautiful house
My family enjoyed staying at this house! It is beautiful and comfortable. It's wonderful to wake up to the sunrise over the ocean right at the front door! The sunroom is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee and a book. We could watch the dolphins in the Gulf from the comfort of this room.
The beds are all comfortable and the bedrooms clean and well appointed.
The kitchen/dining/living room is wonderfully open and user friendly. It functions well as a common space when sharing the house with extended family.
We also found the bookshelf to be a good resource when researching the creatures we'd seen during walks on the beach.
We look forward to returning to Alligator Point and would hope to stay at the Tin Cup Palace again.
We spent thanksgiving weekend here and it was perfect!
The house is beautiful and decorated so cute! The owners were very responsive and answered all of our questions! There was even a Christmas tree up!! Thank you providing the perfect place for our family to celebrate thanksgiving!!
Tin Cup Palace is Perfect.
Tin Cup Palace is beautifully decorated and well maintained. The atmosphere is relaxing. The deck on the back of the house is perfect for watching the sunsets and stars. The sitting area under the house gets the breeze and shade during the hottest part of the day. This was one of the most relaxing beach trips. The home owners provided wonderful information about things to do and places to eat. Perfect Beach Rental.
Great Family Vacation
The beach is only steps away, and the house was perfect for our family. The house is exactly as it appears in the pictures. With two adult children, it was really nice that each couple had their own bath. We cooked most every meal and found the kitchen to be well supplied. The house seems to have anything you would want--plenty of books, games, extra pillows, blankets, and towels. The view from the balcony is great, and we saw dolphins on a daily basis. My only recommendation would be a gate at the top of the steps. We had both a toddler and a water-loving Golden Retriever to keep contained. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful beach home with us.
A Private Paradise!
The Tin Cup is straight out of a romance novel! The house is charming, roomy, comfy and decorated Shabby Chic Beachy!!! It's so beautiful! The bunk room was a fav of my grandchildren. They thought they were having a sleepover every night! The kitchen is large and has everything you need to prepare any meal! The master has a walk out to the spacious deck, a large glass shower and beautiful tile work. Under the house is an awesome bonus too. There is a sitting area, play area, ice cream making area (with electric outlets), and a half bath so you don't have to go all the way into the house from the beach for potty breaks! The beach is so private and quiet, just what we wanted! We didn't have to worry about the 4 children running and playing in the sand. Exploring the sandbar at low tide was definitely something I would recommend! We saw starfish, sand dollars, crabs, catfish, small, brown sting rays and every shell was alive with a sea urchin of some sort! It was a wonderful trip away from the stresses of daily life and time spent with family that will forever be cherished in our memories!
A short walk, bike, drive to Bald Point State Park. Make sure to relax at the Alligator Point Marina Tiki Bar during your stay. It's open Thursday - Saturday - March through September. The drinks are cold and the food is delicious! Alligator Point is a nature lover's paradise.
