It had been my fisrt trip to the Florida pan-handle area and didn't know quite what to expect. My mind had been blown away. My wife's uncle had rented the house for a small family reunion and when we pulled up to this beautiful property, all i could think was WOW!!
The house could not have been in more perfect shape. The rooms were huge, nicely decorated with beach themes, the kitchen and living areas were especially nice and big considering i am a chef and cooked almost every night. The locals were wonderful, the fishing great, and the closeness of the beach was also a treat.
My wife and the other ladies in our party would be at the beach all day, while the men fished right off of the dock in our back yard. I loved the island itself-it sometimes felt like we had our own private little paradise!!!
A few little tips for new travelers going to the island...Try Lynn's Seafood for all of your retail seafood needs, Harry A's on the Island- Delicious food!!!. And if you want great Mexican, check out Pepper's in nearby Apalachicola.
What a trip and thank you for all of the wonderful memories!!! I will cherish them forever.
Always- Phillip Vamvakides + Family
Owner's Response: Phillip,
Thanks for the kind words. My family spent a week at the house at the end of the summer and also had a great time. My 8 year old caught a small flounder off of the dock early one morning and I will not ever forget him running off the dock to tell everybody. All the best to you and yours.
