Overview

Carrabelle Beach House Rental Photos and Description

A Perfect Retreat for Retirees, Families, and International Guests:

Built in 1932, our home was once utilized as housing for family members of soldiers stationed at Camp Gordon Johnston, a WWII amphibious military training facility. It has been in our family for 5 generations.

Our home’s amenities include: morning coffee and beautiful sunsets from our large deck overlooking the gulf, the sound of seagulls and of waves lapping the shore, dolphin watching, shore fishing, flounder gigging, and crabbing, swimming and snorkeling in protected waters, long walks at low tide, star-gazing at night, the occasional manatee sighting, and a well-stocked bookshelf. This beach home is the place for you if you desire a getaway from your usual fast-paced lifestyle, in an old-timey Florida setting. There are two bedrooms and baths upstairs and an additional bedroom and bath downstairs. The downstairs also boasts a full kitchen and rec room with billiards/ping pong table. There is a television upstairs and down, and we offer WiFi for those who feel a need to remain 'connected'.

Other features of the surrounding area include:

Tate’s Hell Nature Trail, the historic Carrabelle Lighthouse and Museum, Camp Gordon Johnston World War II Museum, Dog Island ferry excursions, charter fishing, glass-bottom boat rides at Wakulla Springs, Panacea's Gulf Specimen Marine Lab (with touch pools for children), and a variety of local seafood eateries. Located about an hour’s drive from Tallahassee, and only twenty minutes from St. George Island and Apalachicola, this retreat can be tailored to your own adventurous spirit. Come and discover the true meaning of “The Forgotten Coast”.

Some of the annual events found in the local area include:

October: Low Country Boil in Port St. Joe

November: Apalachicola Seafood Festival

December: Carrabelle Holiday on the Harbor & Boat Parade of Lights

About Aaron Dempsey

Here I am in my father's arms, along with other family members, representing 3 out of 5 generations who have enjoyed lazy days at Carrabelle Beach. This photo was taken at Palms and Pines in 1963. So many memories! I am a first grade teacher, living in Mobile, Alabama, but am still making memories at our beach house with family and friends.

Why Aaron Dempsey chose Carrabelle Beach

I inherited this property in 1983. Because it has been in our family for 5 generations, it harbors a sense of warmth and continuity. Our home has evolved over the years, and offers the modern conveniences one would expect. The decor is simple, yet comfortable. What it may lack in sophistication is compensated for in character and charm.

What makes this house unique

The most unique aspect of 'Palms and Pines' is its secluded and almost completely private location. Carrabelle Beach remains virtually untouched, yet has proximity to many areas of interest and diversity. The area is teeming with wildlife, much of which can be observed without even leaving the deck!

The Great Beach Escape!

  • 5 of 5
This property was amazing! It looked exactly like the pictures and the description was spot on. The house was very clean and had an extremely cozy and homey feel. The location was awesome! We booked this property due to its seclusion and private beach and was not disappointed at all. It is the perfect place to escape away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and was the most relaxing place we have ever been. We highly reccommend this property to anyone looking to just get away from it all. The views were spectacular from both the house and the beach. There was also alot of wildlife to discover down at the shore. Thanks for sharing your home and we look forward to future visits.

Owner's Response: We're so happy to hear that your beach stay was all that you hoped it would be. When we tell prospective visitors how quiet and secluded it is, they simply don't believe it! It truly is meant for those who want to "get away". We've had guests tell us they don't want to share reviews for fear that it will be discovered! Those are the kinds of guests we hope to have at Palms and Pines. They appreciate the solitude and simple charm that our beach and home offer, and wish for it to remain unspoiled. We can't wait to reserve your next "great beach escape"!

This was everything and more than I ever expected. When we arrived the house was even more than what the pictures do it justice. It was exactly what we all needed.....coffee on the beach while listening to the waves crashing on the shore. We were able to enjoy the wonders and beautiful backdrop of the Gulf while just relaxing and enjoying our friends and family. We are planning on making another trip back to celebrate our anniversary. Your home was so welcoming and we could not think of a better place to be. This is definately a hidden treasure.

Owner's Response: Nikki, thanks so much for appreciating our home for what it is intended to be! What makes Palms and Pines so special is that welcoming feeling that makes you feel right at home from the moment you enter. We certainly hope you will come back to celebrate your anniversary next year. I'm getting emotional as I remember my wedding there almost 32 years ago. We celebrated the night before with a small group of family and friends, enjoying a keg of beer, oysters on the half shell, and a bonfire on the beach in front of the house. The next afternoon, we had our intimate little ceremony there also! That's only one of many treasured memories! In addition, although we don't allow pets at Palms and Pines, it's always great to watch folks interacting with theirs on our "pet friendly" beach! Can't wait to reserve your next stay and help you add more wonderful memories!

Great Location! Beautiful Beach!

  • 4 of 5
Great house & location! Love the short walk to the beach. Had an issue with the air conditioner but within an hour of calling, the repairman was out & had the problem fixed. This house is perfect for 2 families or families with teens or in-laws. The one negative is the lack of television stations, consistency of channels available & no games for the PS3 at the home (which if you know of this ahead of time, isn't a problem as you can bring your own.) We plan on returning to Palms & Pines in the future!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! We're pleased that you enjoyed our home and its location, and that you plan to return. Because Carrabelle is a sleepy little community with fewer rentals, our management/maintenance team is able to give tenants immediate attention when needs arise. They've even been known to service on a holiday! I'm perplexed about there being no video games, as we did have a few in the past. Unfortunately, this type of thing seems to happen over time. However, with a variety of other offerings including: wifi, ping pong and pool table, outdoor badminton and volleyball equipment, a varied selection of board games, books, magazines, and even a deck of cards, there are several alternatives to video games and t.v. available. Again, thanks for staying and we hope to reserve your next vacation in the near future!

Winter Break--Nice Place, Nice people--The Canadians

  • 4 of 5
We had a pleasant and enjoyable vacation. We didn't bother the manager for anything since any short coming were minor. We purchased ourselves a frying pan and a couple of pots. The kitchen tap sometimes shot water around! but I tightened up a bit. Still a problem, but was much better. Lastly, some non see through curtains in one of the bedrooms would be nice, and perhaps some curtains on the back od the home preventing sight seeing into the living area at night, from the beach side.
These are minor and did not take away from a very comfortable and well managed home. We have already booked for a return visit.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the constructive feedback. We're so happy that you enjoyed your extended stay and plan to return! We have always been pleased with the prompt and efficient response of our property management and maintenance team. Please feel free to contact them for any problems or annoyances that need attention during your next stay. We've never felt the need for curtains on the beach side, simply because of our location and desire to maintain an open feel and unobstructed view 24/7! However, we will consider adding additional blinds so that visitors have the option of more modesty, while keeping that panoramic feel. Again, we appreciate your review and look forward to your next visit!

End of Summer Renter(s)

  • 5 of 5
Some friends and I wanted to take an end of summer beach vacation to meet up with some long time friends, and Palms and Pines was the perfect place to do it at. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina now, but every year I like go to Florida for some sort of beach vacation. I've been everywhere from Miami to Panama City and so on. What makes Carabelle Beach stand out from other Floirda resorts is that it isnt over-run by tourists. Its a nice and tranquil place to enjoy time with friends and family. The weather was amazing and the beach is your back yard! Palms and Pines has a private beach where you can relax and bask in the sun with no one to interfere. Not like at public beaches where sometimes its hard to find a place to put your things (especially during peak season). Beach houses are always fun to rent because its like a home away from home. Palms and Pines was just that and more. There was so much room! From the 1st floor game room to the spacious back deck, we felt comfortable. So if anyone out there is reading about Palms and Pines and looking to rent their next beach vacation, I highly recommend this place! Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for the great review! We're pleased to hear that you and your friends enjoyed the tranquility of our quiet little beach and had the opportunity to spend quality time together at our home. We love the solitude there and we're always happy to hear when others do as well. It's definitely the place to reconnect in a relaxing atmosphere! We hope you'll be back for more laid-back fun!

Good Friends

  • 5 of 5
Our time spent at your home was all we had hoped for. Looking for a peaceful home town like setting to relax and enjoy at our own pace. Other then a minor drain back up,the frig.freezer defrost malfunction,and a kitchen faucet that would surprise you if you turned it on wrong It realy was alright. We reported these problems and all were noted and or addressed immediately. The only possibly annoying thing was the noise from the furnace made it difficult to get a good nights sleep for the couple sleeping in the downstairs room.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback! We are very pleased to have an excellent and responsive property manager. Shortly after your stay we did have a new refrigerator and stove installed in the upstairs kitchen, which gives it a fresh new look and great functionality. We're glad that you were able to overlook the few maintenance issues and enjoy our home enough to give it a 5 star rating!! We hope you'll choose to stay with us again when you return to "The Forgotten Coast".
