4 BR/3 BA Waterfront Home on Ochlockonee Bay, 1900 sf ground level, dbl carport
About Brent Kerger
We have been in the rental property business since 1988 and have been renting 3 different vacation rental properties on VRBO and Homeaway since 2011. This area has been a favorite gathering spot for our family ever since my wife and I married in 1993. Our 3 children, now adults, learned to cherish the natural beauty, the many water-centered activities, and the amazing fresh seafood that Panacea offers. We are happy to share the "Forgotten Coast" with those who will enjoy its unique attributes.
Brent Kerger purchased this House in 2018
Why Brent Kerger chose Panacea
We purchased this property to expand the capacity of our VRBO property 378404, Sunset Therapy, and to have space to accommodate our own extended family events in this amazing waterfront location. This is not Panama City or St. George Island -- no giant condos, hotels, or theme parks, just natural beauty and quiet residential landscapes on the Mashes Island peninsula.
What makes this House unique
The immediate area is unique for its diversity of water-centered activities like fishing, crabbing, scalloping, and other water sports. There is a bike trail running all the way down Mashes Sands Road that extends for miles in Wakulla County trails. Fresh off the boat seafood is sold in local shops and an eclectic mix of small seafood restaurants, some of which will actually prepare and cook the fish you caught that day! There are few places in Florida that offer this mix of pristine natural beauty and rural small town comforts right on the Gulf Coast.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

I enjoyed this quaint private “old Florida” home. I was comfortable inside and outside. I hope to be back one day soon. I walked to Mashes Sand Beach every evening and ate at The restaurant down the street several nights. The home was clean and the temperature cool.
Clean and quiet
House was clean and beds comfortable. Plenty of space and quiet. Front and back yard could be maintained a bit better. Over all, we had a great stay and will be back again in the future. Can't wait to return.
We had a GREAT time at Bay Dreamin
It was perfect; we had a total of 12 people for a bachelorette party and had a lot of room for everyone. The house was clean and well set up. It was loaded with every paper product you needs ( extra paper towels, toilet paper etc ) and had towels. Had laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent as well.
The beds were fantastic : firm and comfortable, and quite frankly felt like it was brand new.
The furniture was comfortable and the outdoor sitting area was quiet and lovely.
The owner was very helpful, friendly and available for issues ( we had none though )
Thanks Brent we will be back for another stay at Bay Dreamin
wish this would let me upload a picture....
The Property is very well maintaned & Super-Clean, Very Clean & Comfortale Place...
Aside from the Property being very Clean & Comfortable, the late afternoons out on the Deck right there within a stones throw from the Bay are indeed Spectacular, w/ Sunsets you will never forget. Also there is definitely some Great Fishing off the Dock, & obviously just a very short walk to get out there. I caught some really Nice Fish right there off the dock (Using Shrimp for Bait) including Redfish, Sheepshead, & Black Drum & all very Good Eating Fish... The Local Restaurant right up the Road, about a mile from the House called Tropical Traders, they will cook-up your fresh catch for a reasonable price, & you can order a number of tasty side dishes to add to your Fresh Catch, Super Yummy Deal...!! Bay Dreaming is indeed such an appropriate name for this place, as it is such a relaxing atmosphere w/ the Beautiful Bay right there in front of you. The Owners are some of the Nicest People I have met in My Lifetime, & they definitely go the distance to ensure your stay there is Safe & Comfortable. Everything works extremely well throughout the House, including the AC Unit that keeps you cool, Nice Flat Screen TV, Washer & Dryer, etc. They have even gone as far as posting a cork board right as you enter the House, showing many of the Local Restaurants including menus & local Sightseeing Places of Interest as well. If you're looking for a nice clean & comfortable place to get away for a while, or maybe just a long 3 or 4 day Holiday weekend, this is certainly the place for you & you won't be disappointed. I'm definitely planning on going back in November of this year, & again in June of next year to get in on the Red Snapper Season. I truly believe that from here forward,the Bay Dreaming House will be my Annual Vacation Get-Away, & I'm already looking forward to returning back... Michael C /. So. Calif.
we really enjoyed our stay at the Bay Dreaming. I caught a nice slot red right off of the beach. The raised deck by the beach was great to look out over the water. Very clean and plenty of seating for everyone very comfortable . We can't wait to come back
Bay Dreamin' Stay
We had a great stay at this wonderfully reappointed home on the bay! It was all that was advertised and more, spacious and conveinetly located to Angelo's and Mashes Sands Beach. Nice deck to sunbath and enjoy our evening drinks and sunset. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the bay from the private waterfront, porch and from the living room in conditioned comfort. This home offered every reason why we love Panacea and the Forgotten Coast. We shall return!
Rural setting with uncrowded and largely pristine wilderness all around this area; watersports are a main attraction whether bay fishing, offshore charter, or venturing up one of the 3 rivers feeding into the bay; no high rise condos or hotels in the area; see websites for local attractions at Wakulla County and Franklin County, FL.
