This home is a boater, fisherman and beach lover's paradise.
ARE WE THERE YET? is a brand new custom home completed in 2008. Prepare yourself for some peace, quiet and serenity. Leave the go cart tracks, arcades, stacked up high-rises, crowded beaches and traffic to someone else. You will not find them here on The Forgotten Coast.
ARE WE THERE YET? Offers you access merely feet away to world-class fishing in the Apalachicola Bay Estuarine Reserve. You can fish for Pompano, Redfish, Tripletail, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, and of course, Tarpon. While you fish, drop a crab trap for some local blue claw or hog a bushel of oysters fresh out of the bay from one of the many oyster bars.
If you get tired of the bay, drop a fish trap in the canal overnight and then head out in the morning to the gulf with your pin fish for some trophy Grouper, Snapper, Mahi Mahi, Spanish Mackerel, Rock Bass, or troll for some Kings.
For the non-fisherman, the beach is just a five-minute stroll and paved bike paths are just two minutes away. Beach access is available at every cross street. Premium shelling is just a short boat ride away to uninhabited Little SGI. Bike, Scooter, Boat, Jet Ski and Golf Cart rental is available on the island to further enhance your outdoor vacation experience.
You can also take your kids to Journeys of SGI and drop them off for one of the guided educational children’s adventures while you enjoy some free time for yourself.
After a long day prepare your fresh catch or visit Dale and Pewee near the lighthouse for a couple of pounds of fresh jumbo. Enjoy your dinner with a Mai Tai on the rear porch and chances are you may experience one of the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen.
