My husband and I love the beach. Having visited throughout the coastal areas of Florida we selected Alligator Point as our favorite beach location. Unlike other beach areas, Alligator Point is not loaded down with hotels, motels, and condos. Except for the marina and adjacent 'Tiki,' which is an on-the-bay bar/restaurant, Alligator Point has no commercial development. It is strictly a family beach. You will not be locked down in traffic jams, horns blowing, or bothered by noisy beer joints.
First of all, this house sat right on the beach - not a mile away or in sight of the beach or close but ON THE BEACH! There are no motels or strip malls cluttering up the area. This property had one of the highest elevations on Alligator Point which affords it increased protection in the event of a hurricane. Very important was the fact that it was one of the choice properties on Alligator Point in that it had the Gulf in the front yard and the bay in the backyard.
One of the biggest thrills is to be away from the awful traffic jams in Atlanta. It's really a joy to go out your front door, walk down the boardwalk to the beach, breathe that fresh salt air, sit in a beach chair and read a book, take a walk on a beautiful sandy beach or simply exude with nature at its best.
Dear Mr and Mrs Haughton,
Just wanted to let know that we had the best vacation I can remember for a long time. The house was perfect for our group and such a nice secluded place away from commercial attraction. We enjoyed what we did see Wakulla Springs, St.George Island and the aquarium in Panecea. Dale and Brad loved the golf course.And we loved the beach and the grandchildren couldn't get enough of the sea shells and swimming. The best time was had by all. It will always be in our hearts.Thank you for providing us with an excelant place to stay, just like being at home.My grandson kept saying (that is our house and we aren't leaving) Hope it was left in perfect condition for the next renters to enjoy.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home! When I arrived the house was spotless. The layout of the house afforded amazing views of the gulf and the bay. I watched numerous dolphins feeding everyday. The beach was beautiful, great for taking long walks! I could have lived on the back porch. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting an amazingly relaxing vacation! No hotels or condos in site! Many nature parks located nearby. I saw manatee, alligators, ibis, dolphins, horseshoe crabs, jellyfish, just to name a few. I will return for another vacation to this wonderful home!!
This house and the location are even better than the photos! Every night there was a tide pool to explore. My children found too many sea shells and crabs to count. Every thing in the house was super clean. It felt like home. The views are amazing. The porch is perfect! We saw 10 dolphins not far from shore. We didn't want to leave, but will be back!
Our trip to Alligator Point exceeded our expectations! The house we stayed in was PERFECT for our family! The layout of the house was great for a family of five. The kitchen had everything we needed. The best part of the house is the screened in porch! We spent most of our time out there....morning coffee, watching ocean, eating meals, putting together puzzles, reading books, etc. The other best part of the house was the proximity to the beach and the bay! Just a few steps away and we were in the water! We wouldn't have it ANY other way! We ate out just a few times. Angelo's and Posey's were both excellent! We drove to St. George Island area one morning which was nice. Also recommend going to Wakulla Springs for lunch and boat ride over the river. Lots of wild life on the river! We will be returning to Alligator Point and would definitely stay at this house again!
This beach house was by far the BEST we have had in all the years we have come to Alligator Point and Bald Point.
A stones throw to the beach and the bay. The huge screen porch is the greatest! The breeze thru the house was wonderful! To see the sunrise out the front door and the sunset out the back was amazing!Love the huge freezer to store the tons of fish we caught and were able to bring back home with us.
The beach was wonderful! Perfect for shells and all sorts of critters.Excellent surf fishing and fun for the children (of all ages!)
So clean, plenty of room, excellent for children, and so relaxing to all of us! Thank you so much and we look forward to returning for sure next year. Thanks once again. This house is perfect!
We had a wonderful time at your beach house at Alligator Point and are hoping we can return sometime! The house was in excellent condition when we arrived and we were able to find everything we needed in the kitchen. We also really appreciated the ample supply of bath linens. Everyone who visited really loved the house, although my husband said you are in desparate need of some sort of "lift system" to haul the suitcases, groceries and so forth up the stairs! :) I told him it was great exercise and promised not to pack so much the next time! The house is lovely and this beach is a wonderful place to get away from it all. No one wanted to leave at the end of the week! I am passing on your contact info to several friends and family members who may be interested in renting your beach house in the future. You have been great to work with and I do appreciate your promptness in getting information to us. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing vacation experience!
We were completely satisfied with our week of relaxation and seclusion. Just what we were looking for.
The house was everything we had hoped it would be and more. It felt like home. The breeze going through the house was wonderful. We didn't have to use the air conditioning. Sleeping with the doors open listening to the ocean was fantastic and the bed was so comfortable. We are planning to return and have family and friends wanting the rental information.
