About The Owner
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.
Why The Owner chose Alligator Point
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
