This is a two bedroom, one bath, duplex home with a large living area and plenty of workable counter space in the kitchen. In the corner of each bedroom, outside the bathroom, is a lavatory and mirror. There is an enclosed outside shower after a day of enjoying the beach. If you have a baby, there is a crib and changing table in the corner of the guest bedroom. There are fans and TVs in every room. It is well furnished for both relaxing or entertaining. With two dining tables and the kitchen bar, you could easily have dinner for ten. It is 1650 sq. ft., heated and cooled area, with front and back screened porches.
We sleep a maximum capacity of 6 people and a baby in the crib. Our cleaning fee is based on that maximum. If you have overnight guests over the maximum of six, the cleaning fee will increase to $150.00.
The large, screened, front porch is perfect for breakfast at sunrise or a sunset dinner, or just enjoying the ocean view with a good book. The are celing fans on the porch. Alligator Point can be seen across the water and Dog Island is accessible by boat.
St. Teresa Beach is approximately 3 miles long and we are located close to the middle with 1 1/2 miles of wide, beautiful white beach both east and west of us. The beach is approximately 100 feet from the front steps of the home. (If you will refer to the pictures, you can determine the distance of the house from the beach). The beach is perfect for walking anytime, but especially when the tide is low and the sandbars are out. It is wonderful for children to play or explore the small sea life in the pools of water at low tide. There are no deep areas and no undertow, which makes it perfect for small children.
You can surf fish in front of our home or if you have your own boat, there are several boat landings available to you. If it is not a holiday, there are bouys you can hook up to in front of the property.
You can enjoy a bounty of delicious fresh, local seafood in a restaurant or take home to prepare yourself. Some of the local restaurants will cook the seafood you catch for a reasonable price. Check with the individual restaurants.
