About The Owner

We purchased this beautiful home in July 2016 and just love spending time here. It is the perfect place to relax but also for building fun family memories.

The Owner purchased this house in 2016

Why The Owner chose Panacea

The house is beautiful with its wrap-around porch, cupola and surrounding woods. The view of the lake to the back is stellar, with any luck you might even spot Mr. and Mrs. Otter playing in the lake.

What makes this house unique

Kayaking opportunity in the back lake or into the Ochlockonee Bay from the community dock. Five minutes from the house is Mashes Sands Beach - we love to go there early in the mornings and let the dogs run.

We loved everything about Prince of Tides! The owners thought of everything; we had plenty of towels, dish and hand soap, they even labeled the light switches. The loft was a perfect playroom and there wasn't much I had to do to childproof the place. The bedrooms were spacious and separated from each other. The kitchen was completely stocked with everything you could need. Both pools were well-cared for and we were the only ones at the community pool. The back porch had screen doors at the entrance and sides so my kids could run around without me worrying about them. Ican't say enough good things about this house and my family is already thinking of reasons to come back!

Wonderful vacation in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Pince of Tides! The home is very well stocked, including espresso maker and french press coffee pot. Each morning we enjoyed press pot coffee on the back deck, while lounging in rocking chairs. The beds were very comfortable and the linens soft. There are too many beautiful details to list here. My favorite was the sail boats tile in the shower! We were looking to decompress and relax, this was perfect! Our dog absolutely loved the yard. Thank you so much for renting to us. Next time I will book for 10 days instead of 5!

House was spectacular!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do i start!? lol The house was amazing!Beds were extremely comfortable,house had everything you can think of or need!All restrooms were great especially the master restroom with jacuzzi! Pool was nice but small,kids still enjoyed it the few times.Our visit was great but the rain really kept us inside most of the week 😔 Locals were very nice! The only complaint i have is that everything is well over a 30 minute drive! The house is secluded,but we love that!Something i reccomend is they invest in a lower bed,my toddler fell a few times trying to get off.Owners (Sabine) is such a nice and caring lady.I would 100% reccomend and would love to be back in future!

Another Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

As always we had a wonderful time at the Prince of Tides! Swimming, Kayaking, fishing and we even had a little competition going on the WII!

We never want our vacation to end because we always feel like we're at home while we're there. There is not a thing you need as they have everything!!

Sabine and Mike are the greatest!

Can't wait until our next vacation!

Perfect spot for a quiet, relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Prince of Tides! When we saw this rental on VRBO, we were afraid it was too good to be true but upon our arrival it far exceeded our expectations. This house is so well furnished! My husband and sons love to fish and the options here are plentiful...starting right in the lake in the backyard. Then it’s just a short drive to the bay for saltwater fishing. We enjoyed the pool in the backyard AND the community pool which was only a short walk from the house. We visited the community pool every day and were usually the only ones there. We had a great time and a VERY relaxing vacation! We look forward to visiting again.

ENJOY THE FORGOTTEN COAST! There is plenty to do during your stay at the Prince of Tides:

ALLIGATOR POINT/BALD POINT STATE PARK (10 minutes): You can explore the beautiful sand dune beaches in the state park. There are also public access points for the beaches on the residential portion of Alligator Point. Our favorite beach access has parking on the Gulfside and is just over 7 miles from US 98 on CR 370 (Alligator Drive).

ST.GEORGE ISLAND STATE PARK/APALACHICOLA (1 hour): St. George Island has some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. Well worth the drive, a trip to St. George Island can also be coupled with a visit to Apalachicola, a charming coastal town with shops and restaurants.

WAKULLA SPRINGS STATE PARK (20 minutes): Step back in time at this state park that has the deepest natural spring in the Americas. We love the 'Jungle Cruise' on the Wakulla river, which can also be coupled with breakfast or lunch in the Old Lodge. If you want to swim, there is a great swimming area with a tower for kids to jump, but be prepared: The water is much colder than the Gulf!

SALT WATER ADVENTURES (10 minutes): If you are a boater, you can launch your craft at the Alligator Point Marina on Alligator Point or Rock Landing Marina in Panacea, just back up the road 4 minutes on the right-hand side. Both have channels that lead out to the Gulf. You can rent sailboats at the Apalachee Bay Yacht Club in Shell Point (25 Minutes). You can rent motor boats at Shield's Marina in St. Marks. You will find full-service marinas with haul-out services in Carabelle, about 30 minutes west of The Prince of Tides on US 98. Wakulla Dive Center in Medart has scuba diving rentals and equipment. Mike's Marine Supply in Panacea has all your boating necessities. For fishermen, Crum's Mini Mall has a small hardware and tackle/marine supply section as well, also in Panacea. AMS Marine in Medart also has bait and tackle, marine supplies. And don't forget Wal-Mart back in Crawfordville.

GOLF: There is a good golf course at St. James Bay, just on this side of Carabelle. There is another one in Medart.

ST. MARKS WILDLIFE REFUGE AND LIGHTHOUSE (30 minutes): St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge is one of the oldest wildlife refuges in the United States. It serves as a wintering ground for migratory birds, provides lots of guided nature trails for the whole family and in October you can visit the Monarch Festival.
