Overview

Alligator Point House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Located adjacent to Bald Point State Park, the Spotted Grouper is a small and delightful Old Florida beach bungalow surrounded by twisted Sand Live Oaks.

We are 100 yards from the Gulf- to get there just walk down Grouper Street to the water, or use the boardwalk behind the house - there are no streets to cross. The fishing is fantastic, as are the local restaurants and seafood markets.

We are located 45 miles south of Tallahassee, 340 miles due south of Atlanta. The Spotted Grouper sleeps 4 with 1 queen bed and 1 double bed. Sheets and towels are provided.

We highly recommend that our guests clean the Spotted Grouper themselves on departure. Cleaning service is available for an additional $125. Tentative bookings are held a maximum of 7 days.

Recent updates: Pine floors, new carpet, internet.

This is a Lovely House. Only steps from the beach and hearing the ocean at night is always a plus. We had a great time touring around and eating at all the local places The 2 Al's was a great find and Spring Creek is amazing. This cozy home is an amazing bargain. For our girls get away it was perfect.

Owner's Response: Kay, Exploring our eateries from 2Als to Spring Creek? You go, girls! Trust your return to Missouri was safe...and that you found hints of spring peeking through the snow. Visit again soon!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had 5 glorious days at this lovely beach house. The house was very clean, and comfortably decorated. The personal touches throughout are charming. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals. We couldn't have had a better place to spend our 15th wedding anniversary. The beach is literally steps away which is clean and uncrowded. Only a few families were there and everyone is friendly. We are already planning another trip with our boys. Truly one of the best, relaxing vacations we've had. Highly recommend. Thank you for sharing your home.

Owner's Response: Nicole, The uncrowded beaches and friendly neighborhood are the very things that attracted us to Bald Point 14 years ago...and they continue to make our visits delightful and relaxing. Pleased to hear that your family had an enjoyable stay.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, and wished we could have stayed longer. The home was so comfortable and quaint, and the beach just a short walk. Beautiful and quiet. Based on the reviews, we expected someplace nice, but The Spotted Grouper exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Joyce, we often feel the same way...it seems that we would always like to stay a little longer! Just a note to future guests: Panacea has added some pretty nifty biking trails. One path starts at the Ochlockonee Bay bridge and meanders to the end of Mashes Sand...the other is along Surf Road, and it will eventually connect to Sopchoppy (a must-see nearby town!).

Great place

Our first time back to Alligator Point in 20 years. Spotted Grouper was perfect for us. Simple, clean, well furnished and quiet. Great food close by. Wish we're still there! We will definitely return.

Beautiful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Spotted Grouper was very comfortable, very nicely decorated and stocked with everything we might need. We liked its location under shady oak trees and yards from the beach. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the review. We're glad you liked the oak trees... the trees were one of our favorite aspects of the house when we decided to buy it back in 2001.
