St Teresa is nestled in the National Forest and is a private, secluded beach community. A true 'Eco-vacation'....our rental is located on Florida's 'Forgotten Coast' where the forest meets the beautiful Gulf water. Far from noise, traffic and city lights Saint Teresa Beach is like Florida was 100 years ago.

Enjoy walking on miles of white beach almost all by yourself. All you hear is the wind and the water. Watch eagles and otters. We have many nature parks nearby. Fresh seafood and, yes, there are two golf courses (one only 10 minutes away).

I moved to St Teresa from Tallahassee in 1996 where I work as an IT consultant and run beach weather web cams for WCTV News Channel 6 Tallahassee. I have been enjoying the St Teresa area for over 50 years.

Stephen Metzke purchased this house in 1994

Peace and Quiet! St Teresa is private, secluded and open only to home owners and their guests. Second home community not a rental area. You are surrounded by the Forest. Good fishing right off the beach.

St Teresa is like Florida 150 years ago. Really good local seafood just minutes away. Two golf courses, one just 10 minutes west. You have a modern, well appointed home, in the forest yet on the beach. You may be here a week and only see a handful of people. Relax and turn off your cell phone...all you hear is the wind through the pine trees!

An amazing escape!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was wonderful! The house is just as described by Steve and the location is just beyond words. The beauty of the combination of woods and Gulf is something everyone should see once in their lives at least! The beach was our private little get away! I think we saw an average of one person a day. There were plenty of good restaurants 15-20 minutes away and so much to see! Steve and Nancy were amazing hosts...they did not hover, yet they were nearby if we needed ANYTHING! I can't say enough good about our trip! I can say we will be back! Steve, I hope you are feeling better and come visit us in Memphis any time!

Hard to tell who had more fun, us or the dog. Dolphins and white squirrels were a daily sight. Hope you like seafood.

Relaxing and enjoyable

  • 5 of 5
We were on this property for 2 weeks. Steve and Nancy are a dream. The house meet our needs. We loved that this property was pet friendly. So many sights to see in the local towns. Deep sea fishing was excellent. Great eats; recommend Tropical Trader's in Panacea, awesome Grits and Shrimp and Fried Shrimp Tacos and Posey's Steam Room is very yummy. Definitely will return.

Perfect winter beach vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our week staying at the beach house. It had what we needed, and it is literally steps from the beach. We did not see anyone at all on our many beach walks until Friday, and then they were very far away. Our dog enjoyed sunning himself on the upstairs deck and frolicking on the beach. This is a lovely, little developed bit of Florida!

GREAT GULF VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
When my husband and I were looking for a nice rural, QUIET place for a vacation on the Gulf, we looked at an endless amount of houses, but always seemed to come back to the one in St. Theresa.And we sure made a wise choice....The house was clean,quaint and charming,as were the owners,and we had a BLAST!! We fished,Kayaked,walked the beaches,and ate INCREDIBLE seafood(POSEYS on HWY 98 and TROPICAL TRADERS) and GREAT Bar-B-Que at HAMAKNOCKERS. The owners all were friendly,and eager to please.and we enjoyed ourselves at both places.The GULF SPECIMEN AQUARIUM was very enjoyable,as was the WAKULLA SPRINGS STATE PARK, and the jungle cruise. We.also, enjoyed the towns of Carrabelle,Sopchoppy,and Apalachicola.GREAT vacation, and we only hope the house will be available when we can come back. Thanks Steve and Nancy! Gloria and John

About the Area: St Teresa is a beach side community made up of private homes owned mostly by Tallahassee residents. Only a handful of people live here year-round so the beaches are not only private, restricted to homeowners, but also unpopulated most of the time. St Teresa is in the middle of a National forest area and the forest goes almost to the water. Our water is very shallow and we do not have large waves and undertow. Our wide white sand beach stretches for miles. We are about 15 minutes (north-west-east) from small communities that have fine dining (casual) and even an Internet hot spot Bistro.

Other Activities: 30 minutes from Wakulla Springs, kayaking, shopping

Golf: Golf Course 6 miles from Property. Collared Shirts required, no blue Jeans. Nice course.
