A special thank you to all of you. We have enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. This was our first winter being retired, and we could have not found a more perfect spot to spend time. Carrabelle is a lovely town. We saw many new sights and met some great people. We will have wonderful memories to take back to Michigan with us. Again, Thank You!

We had so much fun just spending time together relaxing in a beautiful place. We saw dolphins, pelicans, explored Cape San Blas and St. George Island and just hung out at the house. The weather was perfect! Thanks for sharing your lovely beach house with us!

We loved our visit in 2009 when our girls were much younger- returning was amazing- they were in awe of so muc. We saw a sting ray, caught a baby shark and saw fireworks all around and ate lots of seafood- what matters is having found such a special place. Thank you for a fantastic vacation! We continue to love Carrabelle, particularly this home and we are very grateful for the opportunity to create so many memories here. Incredible!

We love how quiet and peaceful it is here. The weather was beautiful, sunny almost every day in the 60's. We loved the bed and listening to the ocean at night! what a perfect vacation.
