THE SPOTTED GROUPER - OLD FLORIDA BEACH BUNGALOW

Alligator Point House Rental Photos and Description

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

Located adjacent to award-winning Bald Point State Park, the Spotted Grouper is a small and delightful Old Florida beach bungalow surrounded by moss-covered twisted oaks. The house is approximately 100 yards from the beach - to get there just walk down Grouper Street to the water, or use the boardwalk behind the house - there are no streets to cross. Many say the area offers the best fishing in Florida, a claim attested to by the local restaurants and seafood markets.

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.

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.

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.

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.

NEW FANS OF THE "SPOTTED GROUPER"

New fans of the "Spotted Grouper"
  • 5 of 5
When I first saw the "Spotted Grouper" while looking for a place to celebrate my birthday, and my first wedding anniversary, it seemed SO inviting. After reading the description, and comments, I didn't want to leave, and I HADN'T EVEN BEEN THERE, YET!
But, after reading several of the reviews, I thought that surely the place can't be THAT good. Well, after staying there for eight days, I can truly say that those glowing comments WEREN'T adequate enough to express how Wonderful the SG is!
Everything is spotless, and "just right." Every need had been anticipated, and was accommodated with personal, thoughtful touches everywhere. The house is very easy to enter and exit, as it is built "low to the ground." The rooms are spacious, and have comfortable furniture. The beach is just down the street, and can be seen from the living room.

A nice pastime is reading the journals that are furnished for guests to comment on their stay.
We kept the tv on the relaxing "New Age" music channel, which provided a calming background while we took time to enjoy each other's company.

Hubby found some pretty shells and a piece of driftwood on the beach while taking a relaxing walk. He arranged them attractively on a board and presented them for me to look at. He did a good job.

If you're looking for a beautiful, QUIET place to regenerate, this is it. Also, if you need a distraction, there are a multitude of things to see, and do, and great places to eat in the area.

The first morning, a glorious sunrise and a friendly, "meowing" cat (Mullet), greeted me when I opened the kitchen door. Then at night, sitting on the bench right outside the kitchen door, the stars and moon really put on a show.

We absolutely DIDN'T want to leave, but had to. We kept extending our stay a day at a time. After eight days, it was almost time for the next fortunate people to enjoy the Grouper. Can't wait to visit, again.

The Owners are a joy to do business with. Hubby and I hope to return soon, and often!

Owner's Response: If there is one thing that we enjoy almost as much as being at our little beach cottage, it is knowing that there are others enjoying it in our absence! So happy to hear that your visit was a good one, and we certainly hope that you will visit again soon. Would love to see your husband's beach-find creation...post a photo on the SG's Facebook page!

WHAT A GREAT PLACE!!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at the Spotted Grouper from sept. 28th until oct. 6th this year--i just returned home to wnc a few days ago---it was great!! i saw deer and horseshoe crabs on the beach---also,as soon as i arrived, i was greeted by the black cat next door (mullett) and she was my companion for a lot of my stay--that was great because i was on my first solo vacation-- the weather was beautiful and the few people i saw were very friendly--no concrete and condos for me ever again--this was a wonderful natural environment with stunning views from every window of the house--the house itself was very clean and comfy--with everything you could want already there--even the coffee--you only needed to buy your food---i hope to go back next year--i intended to to more sightseeing than i did but i did not want to leave the wonderful house and beach area--loved it !!!!!

Owner's Response: So pleased that you enjoyed your beach holiday! We agree...the area is very calming, the neighbors are great, and there are almost always pleasant surprises to be found on the beach. We're headed down next week to initiate the installation of heart pine floors...so things should get even cozier in our little place. We hope you return soon!
