This was our private home for several years. Now that we are retired, we still spend 5-6 months a year here. We love it in the fall and winter as there are so many ducks, birds, and other animals that winter here. The sunrises and sunsets are awesome from our bedroom. Actually from any room.

Aaron Wray purchased this estate in 2005

We purchased this property because we wanted something very private with our own beach. I have never seen a property more private. The beach is our own. We may see a neighbor on occassion, but very rare. We also love nature. Hidden Beaches is made up of beautiful beaches, wondering creeks, marshes, ponds, and small lakes. We have managed to keep it in its natural state. Even the drive meandering thru Hidden Beaches and along the lake. Last winter there were thousands of ducks, a couple otters in the pond, lots of dolphins feeding, several black bear that visited us on occasion, and we counted up to 18 bald eagles at one time.

AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
I just wanted to take the time to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to stay at your home for our vacation. Our dogs had a blast and are rejuvenated. It warmed my heart to see them so happy. My wife and I also had an amazing and peaceful time away from New York City. This house is absolutely exactly how it looks, AMAZING. Calm and quiet. Gorgeous beachfront and in ground pool. We were blown away. Thank you, thank you, thank you....!!!!!

BEST KEPT SECRET IN FLORIDA

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location and home. When we drove up, my husband (who doesn't like the beach) couldn't stop smiling! He wouldn't let anyone out until he was sure we were at the correct house. It was wonderful. Everything is true. You are on the beach with a private pool. My husband and son in law had a great time fishing. My seven year old enjoyed finding hermit crabs (hundreds of them) she even found a baby horseshoe crab. We left them all for others to find. If you want to get away from crowded beaches and be alone, this is the place for you.

SECLUDED, STRESS FREE VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredible home that makes you feel like you are on your own private island!! There is something beautiful to see everywhere you look both inside and out. The master bedroom suite is wonderful. There is a “wow factor” from the views of the water, to the pool, to the abundant wildlife on the property. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the otters, eagles, herons, ducks, dolphins and other beach wildlife. The house was the cleanest rental home that we have stayed in. The furnishings were comfortable and the only thing you need to bring with you is food and clothes. The owner was very accessible and willing to answer questions both before and during our stay. While staying at the house we enjoyed quick trips to Apalachicola for shopping and dining (we liked Tamara’s Café). We also went over to St George Island to visit the State Park on the East end and to dine at the Blue Parrott. We would highly recommend this house for someone who loves the water, wildlife and a private, secluded, stress free vacation.
