Overview

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.

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.

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

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"

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!
