Only minutes away from world-class speckled trout fishing waters, our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home is located on the Apalachee Bay in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee). This roomy 1624 sq. ft. modular home is located in gated Shell Point Village, which has a community swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is a large boat dock (with ample room for two boats) on a deep-water canal, which is just one canal over from the boat launch at the Shell Point Marina. The living quarters feature 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, dining room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen and screened-in porch. The family room is a large, open area furnished with a fully stocked entertainment center, comfortable den furniture, pool table and dining room table. You can shoot pool and watch TV, while enjoying a beautiful view of the canal from 2 sliding glass doors that lead to the porch.

Fishing & Other Activities: For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. We have year round fishing, with different species here at different times. Trout and redfish are the most sought after fish and can be caught all year long. Tarpon are here from June till August, and cobia will show up in the early spring as the water warms and will stay until fall. Other fish that may be caught on the flats are Spanish Mackerel, blue fish, sheepshead, flounder, ladyfish and a numerous variety of sharks to 250 pounds. Many prefer to head out for deeper waters to catch grouper and snapper. For the tennis buff, there are 6 lighted tennis courts across the street from the golf course at Wakulla High School on Hwy. 98 in Medart. Shell Point is a also great place for windsurfing and hosts several Regattas each year.

Beaches: For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is about 1/2 mi. from 'Already Gone'. It is a very, very small beach located on the bay, which means that the only waves that you will see will be on a very windy day. It doesn't compare to the other two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to kick back and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets.

Wakulla Springs (10 miles away): Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the largest fresh water springs in the world, is only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. Kids love it and you will, too. The water stays the same temperature all year round. It's very refreshing in the heat of the summertime.

About Deborah Word

My name is Deborah Word. I live in Carrollton, GA, with the love of my life.

Deborah Word purchased this mobile home in 2001

Why Deborah Word chose Shell Point

Jerry and I started visiting Shell Point in 1998 and just fell in love with the area; not only for the fishing, but also because of the wildlife and natural habitat. The area is also ideal for our other hobby, which is photography.

What makes this mobile home unique

It is so nice to have the boat dock just out the back door, so that you can be on the bay fishing in just minutes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just thought I would send you a note to let you know we really enjoyed staying at your VRBO property. I brought my boat and it was so convenient to have it right at the house and not have to put it on the trailer each day. Also, I was able to get to the fishing spots very quickly from your location. I look forward to coming back soon. Robert from Hull, GA (Review shared from email)

"Already Gone" into relaxation mode!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well maintained. There was no detail that was not thought of. Very well stocked and has everything you'd need. A perfect vacation spot. The view from the screened porch is beautiful. And the Master bedroom is very comfortable. The bed felt like a cloud, just perfect. I wasn't there for a vacation, but would definitely love to go back. "Already Gone" is the perfect name for the house. When you walk in side, you feel as if you've entered the "Relaxation Zone." Loved the house, loved the view, and felt right at home. Thank you again Deb for the wonderful experience at Already Gone.

Great Shell Point Rental

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at " Already Gone Fishing " in early October for the purpose of fishing, and celebration of my retirement and my son's college graduation. I loved the location and the convenience of a dock for my boat ! I was able to leave the dock and be fishing in ten minutes. The unit was better stocked with household supplies than any place I have ever stayed. I'm not a big pool / billiard player, but we had a great time playing between fishing trips . The beds were very comfortable and the house was clean. The screened back porch was nice and kept the bugs at bay. There is a nice lawn between the house and the canal that we used for playing corn bag toss . I will definitely be back !! Also.... did I mention we caught a lot of fish !

Everything we hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome and it was everything we had hoped for! Clean and well stocked is understatement. Everything was perfect from the screened in porch to the pillow top matress on the mastee bed. We caught tons of fish so having your own dock with a fish cleaning station was a plus. We have been coming to this area for 4 years and this was our first stay here. Best trip ever. It sure didn't hurt that Deborah the owner was on the ball with timely and helpful information. She even called me the day after we left to let us know my friend had left her kindle and it would be in the mail that day. If you enjoy fishing or quiet time on the coast with wild life this is your place. We saw dolphins feeding on mullet at the end of the canal and bald eagles on the side of the road. Perfect vacation!!

Just wanted to comment on what a nice rental home you have. We had everything we needed and the kids had a great time. The neighbors were all nice and so were the other people in the area. St Marks is incredible, TNT caonoeing was lots of fun and has beautiful scenery. Bald point state park and St Georges Island both worth the drive. Sand Marsh park is nice if you like empty beaches!

We will definately be back!

Christmas 2005. Back to our home away from home once again, to spend time with children, grandchildren and a great grandchild! 4 generations around the table on Christmas day. Once again we had a wonderful time which helped erase memories of what had been a rough year. Thank you Deb for sharing your home - we'll be back in the Summer as usual. All good wishes for the New Year.
