  • Best Rental Ever

    "Barbara...thank you so much. We loved the place. Kitchen had every pot and pan ever needed to include huge seafood steamer. Place was rustic and Charming especially nice for beach house so we could enjoy without fear of kids (5, 6 and 7) breaking expensive stuff...of course nothing was broken. We also rented pool house for the extra room...sleeping porch leaked a tiny bit but no problem. Lots of towels and linens in both. Tons of dishes. Almost private beach with walkway to and outdoor shower. We saw some dolphins swimming...bonus. bought jumbo shrimp to cook at My Way seafood place.. super good price. Bring everything u need from Tallahassee or closest grocery store is in Panacea. This place was so nice we might come back even though we all now live in Denver!!! Thank you again so much. The most reasonably priced and great Beach House ever.....not 5 star for 5 star snobs but 10 star for everyday people who want the beach, stars, views, fishing, seclusion and a great kitchen to cook fantastic feasts. We also cleaned/tidied up the countertop ice maker as it needed some loving!"

  • Wow! Found our vacation house for years to come!

    "This was the first house my family has rented, and were a bit nervous about the whole process. Jim, the owner, took the time to email and call us and answer any and all our questions. The rental process went very smoothly. The pictures don't lie! This house was just as the pictures look on the website (no unpleasant surprises). Ok, the house is actually better than the pictures. House - the house is open concept at it's best. The living room, dinning room and kitchen are one big room, yet cleverly separated (this is where everyone hung out when inside and there was plenty of seating). There is also a big room upstairs that's another great place to hang out (this is where our kids hung out with each other). The house has such an open feeling to it with all the windows. On one side you look out into the bay (where dolphins could be seen every morning) and on the other side you're looking at the ocean. The bedrooms are decent size and no one felt crowded (we had six kids with us). Bathrooms were roomy (enough for mom to change and bath/shower kids with another kid brushing their teeth). The front deck (facing ocean) is like a room itself. Lots of conversation/bonding took place on it. The back deck was used to view the bay. The house is next to other houses, but you couldn't tell when you were in the house (quiet neighborhood). House was very clean and comfortable. Beach - Literally footsteps away. We felt like we had our own private beach. You could look down yonder and see a group of people that was a public beach, but no one was near us. This was nice for we could let the kids spread out on the beach with their stuff/toys and not worry about anyone taking anything. There were crabs, starfish, fish, hermit crabs, and such that could be found during the day. Yet not too many that any of the kids were afraid to swim in the ocean. At night the kids liked to walk the beach with a flashlight and see all the fiddle crabs - like all hundreds of them! We found shells, built sand castles, took walks, flew kites, and just hung out on the beach. The first night at the house, while sitting out on the beach watching the sun set, my husband asked me, "How much do you think Jim wants for the place?" Needless to stay, we love the house! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and reluctantly recommend it to others (who may take it the week we want to come back :) Seriously, this house is a treasure."

  • Very Relaxing Vacation

    "We had a great week in this home. The pictures on the VRBO site were a very good representation of the various rooms and spaces within the home. The home was very spacious and well kept. The beach was very close, private, and quiet. We loved all of the glass windows and doors across the back of the home... these provided great views of the ocean all day. Given the privacy of the island, the night sky was filled with stars. On the clear nights, we enjoyed turning off all of the lights after dark and sitting on the upper porch to get a better view of the thousands of stars. We did have to work/travel a bit to find activities for our teenage sons but had great outings to Wakula Springs and St. George Island (for jet skiing). We appreciated the opportunity that the owner provided to do some light cleaning/straightening up of the home and save on the cleaning fee. This location is a bit remote so it is good to bring as many groceries and supplies when you come to the home. Overall we liked this home and would stay here again if we return to Alligator Point."

  • very private getaway

    "we stayed for 5 days, it was awesome, this is not a resort it is private, what you see is what you get, we loved it, we saw 1 other person from the house and heard one person call his dog, never talked to anyone around the house, there was just no one around. made the stay great. was able to catch fish and crab everyday from the dock behind the house, eat fresh seafood for supper every day. we will go back it was just an awesome get away. Joe the owner even called to make sure we made it safe, it says a lot about the owner. looking forward to going back."
