If you are looking for a rental property near all the action (restaurants, bars, shopping), this place is NOT for you. But if you're looking for a quiet, family getaway to escape then this is it!!! The low-traffic, quiet beach is fantastic and Cabana is PERFECT for getting out of the sun. We'll be back...

Perfect location for a relaxing beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 5 (3 adults, 2 children age 10 & 12) stayed for a week at Alligator Point. We enjoyed the natural setting and saw lots of wildlife (crabs, birds, a white squirrel, turtles, starfish, stingrays). This is a great place for a quiet vacation-there are no touristy shops here, just a beautiful, almost deserted beach. The beach pavilion was wonderful for escaping the sun to read or nap. the ocean was a bit too choppy for paddle boards or kayaking during our stay, but we did enjoy fishing from the shore. Be aware-the beach has a fair amount of sea grass and the water is not crystal clear, but these things don't bother us. The sand is wonderful, powdery white like sugar, though!

As far as the house goes it is not fancy, but it had a well equipped kitchen, a nice sun porch for gazing at the waves, and a big living area. Bedrooms and bathroom were adequate (mattresses were a bit hard but we slept well anyway). The sun deck on the ocean side of the house was amazing.

We took a side trip to Wakulla Springs State Park-highly recommend the boat ride for nature lovers! This is unspoiled Old Florida at its best! Be sure to check out local seafood restaurants-Poseys is amazing. Also, make sure to stock up on groceries before you come-grocery stores are a good distance away. If your are able to bring bicycles, this is a great way to tour the area including the marina.

The owner, Camp Neel, was very accommodating and gave us good tips for fishing, etc during our stay.

Overall, we had a great, relaxing beach vacation!

We loved it.

  • 4 of 5

I love nature and this is the best "natural beach" enviroment I've found - I'm orignially from South Florida and everything's "cleaned up and sanitzed" for the masses. I can't remember when I saw so many stars in the sky - no lights on the beach for sea turtles nesting and no light and activity from commercialism. If you are looking for a great, private, perfect get-away this is it.

BUT, from your home base and traveling out - you'll find: great restaurants (We liked Angelo & Sons - they offer fish any way you like it- not just fried!), and all water activities you could possibly want.

I guess the bottom line is - We are coming back:-}

Cute beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little beach cottage with amazing beach front access and views. My family and I, along with our two pups, spent the week and had a wonderful time. Posey's was our favorite restaurants and seems to be a local favorite as well. We visited the gulf specimen aquarium, which was a hit with the kids, then drove over to wakulla springs and took a boat tour. We really enjoyed the seclusion of the beach along with easily accessible, but not overly touristy, activities within driving distance. It was our first visit to Alligstor Point, and we definitely plan to come back. Thanks for sharing your little piece of heaven!

We had a wonderful time celebrating our 20th anniversary.

  • 5 of 5

Casa de la Playa was exactly what we wanted: quiet, relaxing and private. We saw about 10-15 people on the beach each day with the closest being around 30 yards away. The home was comfortable and nice- just as pictured. We enjoyed several restaurants: Mad Anthony's and Big Daddy's Pizza were our favorites in Panacea; we also enjoyed El Jalisco and Lindy's Chicken in Crawfordville. It was a very enjoyable trip!

Winter escape...

  • 5 of 5

This was the first year my hubby and I were able to "snowbird"... I did a lot of research trying to find the perfect place for us and fortunately I stumbled upon Alligator Point... If you are looking for beautiful white sandy beaches without the crowds where you see the dolphins play daily...this is the place for you! The cottage is so cute and cozy and it was suited perfectly for the two of us and our fur baby! Camp was also the most cordial of hosts to work with...we hadn't been there a week before we reserved the cottage again for next winter... We spent our days walking the dog friendly beach...drinking margaritas...cruising the point on our golf cart...and just soaking in the beauty... sunsets were incredible...right in your own backyard such a beautiful oasis... It's not commercialized so you do have to plan and make lists as "real" grocery stores are in Carabelle (a cute quaint little fishing town that you will just LOVE) or Crawfordville (larger town with a Walmart) which are both about 25 miles away... there is a real nice dollar store in Ochlockonee Bay and that's about 15 miles and it became my friend for many needs in between grocery visits... lots of nice seafood stores and restaurants there too and in Panacea... our favorite hangout was Mad Anthony's Waterfront Grill... Friday and Saturday night Charles entertains there (lounge singer style) and we loved that! Angelo & Sons on the bay was probably the nicest place to eat in the area... Appalachicola is just a short drive and a neat little town to explore with lots of good food and shopping... St George island is breathtaking and also worth the drive to explore... we took a boat ride at Wakulla Springs and that was inexpensive and a great tour...saw a lot of birds and alligators and manatees... The absolute BEST moments though were simply sitting outside enjoying the beauty that awaits you right outside your back door! We absolutely cannot wait for our return and leaving was a sad day but knowing I was coming back made it easier!!! Thank you so much Camp for sharing your forgotten hideaway with us!!! I look forward to many winters in your wonderful cottage...(which by the way, it is located in one of the best spots on the point)... 🙂
