'Get Your Bathing Suit On'is a custom-built, Key West-style beach home that has RELAX written all over it! This first-tier home is only about 100 steps to the beautiful, white, sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. With its 3 separate sleeping areas, 2 & 1/2 baths, screened porch and sundeck, our whimsically-decorated home can easily accommodate a family or small group... but is still small enough for couples on a romantic getaway!!
We also try to simplify what you need to pack by providing all your linens, including beach towels, as well as a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and detergents.
For your convenience, we maintain a supply of beach chairs, rafts, and beach toys!
You can enjoy the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch. As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can find a variety of seashells to collect or just enjoy watching the dolphins swimming by or eagles and osprey scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, sunbathing or fishing in the surf are always a lot of fun.
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!
Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway. Scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies are a favorite for dinner or can be frozen to be enjoyed later when you return home. In addition, nearby Indian Pass is famous for its delicious oysters!
The GROUND LEVEL has a bedroom with a queen bed and a private 1/2 bath which is perfect for the mother-in-law or a guest couple. The garage is also on this level and contains the washer & dryer as well as a plentiful supply of beach chairs, rafts and beach toys for your convenience. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower conveniently located on the ground-level deck.
The MAIN LEVEL has gleaming heart pine floors throughout. It contains the kitchen with breakfast bar, dining nook and living room that open to the screened porch with pub-height table and chairs that make it easy to dine 'al fresco' while enjoying the view. In addition, the inside dining area has a very comfortable window seat perfect for afternoon naps or reading a book from our collection. The Master Bedroom, with king bed, is also located on this level and has a private full bath. The second full bath is also on this level.
The LOFT, which serves as the third bedroom, has two twin beds with built-in drawers. The loft also has a 1/2 bath. It is perfect for kids/teenagers or friends. It also has a large open area that provides plenty of extra room for play.
The house has WiFi and all the bedrooms and the loft have their own TVs with DVD players. There is also a TV, DVD player and CD player in the living room.
Our area is reminiscent of 'Old Florida.' There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere near by! Our beaches are very quiet and peaceful, and in the off-season, in particular, you will rarely encounter anyone as you stroll quietly along the beach!
Our house is located just 1.5 mi. from Cape San Blas - which has been rated in the top five of the best beaches in the United States. Port St. Joe is only 10 minutes to the west, where you can stock up on all of the provisions you'll need. If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. A golf course is only a few miles away and there are 4 separate boat ramps within 15 miles.
Just 20 minutes to the east is the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many wonderful restaurants and night spots. In addition, you can just walk along the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day.
We invite you to stay at 'Get Your Bathing Suit On'to relax and enjoy 'Old Florida.'
