BARE FOOTING...CANAL FRONT, BOAT DOCK, POOL, BAY BEACH, WIFI

Shell Point Mobile Home Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

Only minutes from the Apalachee Bay and spectacular fishing, our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee) is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, 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 (2 boat slips) located on a deep-water canal, which is just two canals over from the boat launch. We offer 1600 sq. feet of spacious living quarters, featuring 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen, large sun room and screened-in porch. The family room is a large open space with a fireplace, and is furnished with comfortable den furniture, 32in TV, dining furniture and bar seating. Our master bedroom adjoins the sun room and offers a magnificent view of the canal. In the summer and winter, the sun room is a perfect place to kick back, relax, and observe the natural habitat of the bay.

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.

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.

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 mile from Bare Footing. 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have been visiting Shell Point since the 1980's. My children and their cousins spent 'summer camp' at their Grandfather's home in the Village. When the home in the village was sold, we needed to find a place to stay when we make our twice yearly trips to the coast to fish. Deb's rentals in Shell Point have been incredible and finding her rentals allowed us to continue our traditional family fishing trips. We have stayed at Pirate Point and Bare Footing and both were spacious, well appointed, and we felt right at home. We bring our boat over from St. Marks and the boys fish every waking moment. It's easy in and easy out. Deb is awesome to work with and very efficient and organized. We are headed back to the Point in June with kids, grand kids, and a grand doggie and we can't wait!.

We had a good time, the house is very spacious. It is a great place to bring your own boat and go fishing.

Enjoyed our stay!!

  • 4 of 5
Just left after spending four days with family and friends at "Barefooting". We had a wonderful time even though we only saw the sun for one afternoon. House is spacious and accommodated all of us without feeling cramped or right on top of each other. Fishing and crabbing from the dock was fun even catching the sharks! A golf cart would have been nice but managed without one. Not located in an area where groceries or other shopping is near by but once you have your supplies who needs to leave. Would as a personal preference like to have had more lighting such as lamps in the great room and in the bunk room where the overhead light was so bad it was difficult to see anything. Everything else was just great, clean and the people in the area were very nice. Look forward to renting again in the future. Thanks for a great experience!!

Spacious but a bit run-down

  • 3 of 5
The house was not clean when we arrived - sticky floors and countertops, and the fridge was a mess! Also, the glass shower door was falling down, and one electrical outlet was not attached to the wall. The gas grill was broken and rusted out. The house is poorly maintained, and we did not receive any compensation for OUR cleaning services.
There was a lot of room to store our kayaks and bikes, plus lots of dishes so we didn't run out of silverware or glasses before we needed to run the dishwasher.
It was kind of chintzy to be asked to replace the soap, TP and such; we have stayed in about 25 rental houses throughout the country and that has never been asked of us, even in the FL state park cabins.
We left a lengthy note for the rental agent and owner regarding the deficiencies in the house - we are not sure if any action was taken afterward, but we never received a call to discuss our comments.

Owner's Response: I spoke to the renters approximately 2-3 days into their stay and offered to have the owners come over to address their concerns. The renters declined this offer. The renters' concerns were immediately passed on to the cleaning service and the owners to address these maintenance issues. All maintenance issues have been addressed at this time, including outlet, shower door, and a new grill.

Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. It is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city - malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport - and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU). If you are

interested in fishing (trout, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, cobia, flounder, grouper, black bass ... it's saltwater fishing, so the list goes on), boating, or ... if you just want to escape to a relaxing, laid back paradise; yet, be able to venture into the city on a whim, this is the perfect location for you.

Other Activities: beaches, swimming, nature hiking, river boat tours

Golf: For the golfer, Wildwood Country Club is a beautiful public golf course located on Hwy. 98 in Medart (less than 10 minute drive). Telephone 850-926-4653 ... Fees: M-F $27 Twi-lite (after 1) $22 Sat.-Sun. $32 Twi-lite (after 1) $27 Range Balls $3.50 per basket Rental Clubs $15 per set.
