Overview

Alligator Point Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Cottage Directly On Private, (Sleeps 4-6) White-Sand Beach

Completely renovated Gulf-front/beach-front cottage allows you to rest or play as much as you want and literally get away from it all. Enjoy spectacular sunsets from the screened porch that will make you feel like you're on a luxury cruise ship plying the tropics. Walk the beach from one end to the other collecting sea shells or swimming or sunbathing.

The home is smartly and comfortably furnished. The bathroom allows you to take a shower while looking out to the Gulf and beach. Bedroom furniture is relaxing and new. Prepare meals in the kitchen while gazing out to the Gulf and sparkling white-sand beach or while visiting with family on the screened porch or in the living room.

Home is a perfect get-away for major holidays or an FSU football game. Or drop a child off at an FSU camp while you and your spouse stay a week at the beach! The cottage is great for a family of four or two couples. Relax and do nothing but watch dolphins and walk the beach or fish or jet ski or play golf nearby or go antiquing at nearby towns (Carrabelle, Crawfordville, Apalachicola) and of course, come to eat the best and freshest seafood in the world!

About Chris

Was first introduced to Alligator Point by local friends from Tallahassee in the mid-1990's and have been coming to Alligator Point every year since for the Memorial Day Weekend Captain Jack Fishing Tournament that is held at the Alligator Point Marina. By the way, you must visit the End Of The World Oasis at Alligator Point Marina and have a deep fried Grouper sandwich -- the absolute best! And if you catch it, they'll even fry it up fresh!

Chris purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Chris chose Alligator Point

Because of my familiarity with Alligator Point and the many good times I've had here, decided to finally buy a home. After visiting several homes, all it took was one time out on the screened porch of my cottage to know that this was the place. I always feel like I'm right over the Gulf when sitting on the screened porch. And not only are the sunsets spectacular, but nights with a full moon are also just as stunning!

What makes this cottage unique

The views of the gulf and the beach are priceless not to mention the times that I've been able to sit on the screened porch sipping my favorite beverage and actually watch dolphins swim almost onto the beach as they feed in the very shallow water. Absolutely beautiful!

GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

The house is VERY nice! Very nice, top of the line everything. The location is awesome! My family stayed during mid-June and had the beach to ourselves. We found great shells, watched the dolphins swim past us-almost daily, saw sea turtles everyday (one did a backflip 2 feet in front of us)! The local restaurants are GREAT! We hit them all and NEVER had a bad meal, seriously, I cannot even name a favorite. The house really was great, the outside shower was perfect! I think we showered outside, more than in! Overall, I highly recommend this place! I REALLY hate it that we did not plan ahead and reserve it before someone else Booked It!

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Alligator Point. The house was fabulous right on the beach with a world class walk. We saw Dolphins every day as well as Pelicans and lots of other great birds. We will be back.

Spring break

  • 5 of 5

We've never stayed on the point before only on St. George. What a great discovery we made with this house. We heard the ocean from every room in the house and had daily dolphin shows from screened porch and beach. It was a quiet get-away for our family of four. The house had everything we needed! ��

This was the perfect spot for us. No neighbors- one side was an empty lot the other a house up for sale. Few people on beach but enough to socialize with and be friendly. As other have written water shoes are essential in ocean in front of house-a couple of large rocks/ cement

blocks were found. A walk down the beach was great for shell gathering and a sand bar a couple doors down was the best for seeing live star fish, sand dollars and a variety of shells and crabs. Bird and fish watching was spectacular.

The house was clean and extremely pleasant. Kitchen was well stocked with pans and utensils. The screened in porch was by far the best part of the house-always a breeze We lived out there if not on the beach.

The owner was very accommodating and quick to respond to our emails once we were there.

Nice place to getaway from it all! House is very comfortable for 2 people. The house needs to provide sheets that will stay on the bed. Other than that everything was great. Visited nearby Panacea and ate at Costal Restaurant twice. Great place for local seafood and excellent deserts! Looking forward to returning to Alligator Point in the future.

The photos don't do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean, newly updated, and well-furnished. It truly is even nicer than in the photos. The view is magnificent and the water is so close that you forget you aren't on a boat. This was one of the most relaxing vacations that I have ever taken. My family felt as though we were in our own private world. I would definitely rent this property again in the future.

Located just South of Tallahassee, Alligator Point is a non-commercial beach made up of single family vacation homes. There are no commercial enterprises(other than the marina) on the peninsula. Most the time you feel like you have a private beach all to yourself. It's like taking a step back in time.

There is ample wildlife to observe, miles of beach to explore and close to restaurants and shopping. The fishing is great right off the beach or on any number of charter boats in nearby Panacea or Carrabelle. It is adjacent to a State Park and federal wildlife area with picnic areas and hiking trails. Also, Wakulla Springs State Park, the Panacea Gulf Aquarium and the pre-Civil War port town of Apalachicola are all terrific day trips.
