DIRECT GULF ACCESS ON CANAL - SCALLOPING/FISHING/FUN

Horseshoe Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

This stilt house is located in a natural and secluded area known as Horseshoe Beach: Florida's Last Frontier, and the best area to get scallops when in season. The grass flats fishing inshore offers Reds, Trout, etc... not to mention the offshore grouper. There are no better flats in Florida than this area.

20 minutes from Cross City to the West, this quiet little community resembles Key West in the early days, before tourism hit. Horseshoe Beach is a key-like community shaped like a horseshoe with an elaborate system of canals. The canal system offers protection for boats from the wake of the gulf, yet you can reach the open gulf waters 300 ft from the boat dock in the back of the house.

Horseshoe Beach is a place where you can go get away and enjoy Florida's Nature Coast, a.k.a., the 'Big Bend'. There are several off road trails to cruise in vehicles, bikes, or by foot in which you will see some of the elite wildlife. The activities here are endless, but it's also very nice if you just want to hang out and enjoy the serenity and the key-like atmosphere.

Our favorite thing to do here is pull up the traps in the back dock and boil up some delicious blue-crabs which are available year-round. It is always nice to catch your dinner by rod & reel, by swimming, or by simply pulling on a rope connected to one of the three crab traps tied to the dock. FYI- the boat ramp is one block away and is an easy walk back from the house to pick up your vehicle.

The house is very simple yet has everything you need and is very comfortable. Please call or text anytime to reserve (352) 207-2114. Check-in is 4 PM. Checkout is 12:00 PM.

Remote Fishing Town

  • 5 of 5
Me and My wife were looking for A quick get Away to Florida and found this listing the night before we arrived. The owner was great and gave us A very good price and allowed us to stay A few days with our kids and small dog. The house had all the basics and was clean also its the only house with A covered dock on A canal full of fish and crabs which turned out to be great because of all the rain. There is no real grocery store or gas station for miles or cell phone service so come prepared . We weren't so we ended up catching dinner the first day, lucky I do alot of fishing and know how to prepare fish. This was A great place to reconnect with nature, The people we met at the bait shop are the best , our Girls rode bikes all over the place and hung out at the bait shop most of the time and did some crabbing and scalloping . Just an absolutely great place and nothing like we expected Ive already told so many of my friends and want to come back as soon as time allows . The best place to stay ever if you have kids and A pet and enjoy fishing. Would however recommend some updates on the furniture but hey it was good enough and it is after all A great fishing town. Thank you so much and we look forward to spending many years back here!!!

Great value. Neat and clean hide-away, with all of the amenities that anyone would want. Close to Lake, restaurants, and town, yet offers total privacy. Highly recommended.
