About Gary Fritz
I am a general contractor, I built The Blue Marlin in 2007 to sell, however, the market left and I spent around 20k furnishing the house with all the finest furniture, new beds, dining room set, sheets, towels, everything one could want in a home. I do not live in this house, only use it as a rental, I have tried to make the house one that I would want to spend time in. I am 66 years old and live in Tallahassee with my three rat terriers.
Gary Fritz purchased this house in 2007
Why Gary Fritz chose Alligator Point
I have been going to this area of the gulf coast since I was a child. The area has changed little, there never has been any real development and when I bought the lot the Blue Marlin is on, I decided to build this house to this floor plan based on everything I have learned as a builder in the past thirty years.I have put all first class components in the house in hopes to sell it and now I am happy it didn't sell, as I enjoy renting it. Everyone has been so great in the past five years, I have met many interesting people who have rented, and have no regrets that the house didn't sell as I first intended it to. I am a firm believer in everything happens for a purpose and The Blue Marlin is an example of life not following my plan but still turning out for the best. When I first started renting the house, I didn't have any idea how it would go, but everyone has loved the house and loved staying there, I even have around seven or eight people that come every year, and it such a blessing and a pleasure to rent the house.
What makes this house unique
The Blue Marlin is first a very private and secluded house, there are things there in the surroundings that haven't changed in thosuands of years, the area has not been developed in any way, you might see five or six people on the beach during the week, maybe a few more on weekdays. The fishing is excellent on the beach, I stay one week per year with my sister and her husband and have a great time every year. There is so much wildlife, you will see deer, white squirrels, maybe a black bear, foxes, dove and quail, turkeys, thousands of sea birds, bats, wildcats, the state park one half mile from the house is five thousand acres with walkways going a long way back into the wilderness. The state park looks like Africa in many ways. There is a nice long dock with all facilities. fi you wiish to just get away from all the rat race, this is the place for you, you will feel like you have gone back in thime with the silence and the waves you hear for the beds when you go to sleep. People are few that are on the beach and I want you to feel like this is your own house for your stay. There are no personal effects that I keep there, I only use this house for a rental. Please come and share the peace and quiet to rejuvenate yourselves from this loud and crazy world.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a great time at The Blue Marlin. We walked on the beach, played on the beach, fished on the beach and caught Red Fish, Trout, some sting rays, and even a shark. We had a great day trip to Cape San Blas, Saint Joe, and Saint George Island. Great food was found at the Tropical Trader. It was great to be at the end of the "point". The state park was great for morning runs, bike riding, and walking. The water was calm enough to put in the kayaks and they were used frequently. The house was great and the perfect size for all of us (8 total). Everyone had pleanty of room and the size of the kitchen and dining room was perfect for watching movies and playing games. Thanks for letting us stay, what a great week.
