The Spotted Grouper is a delightful Old Florida beach bungalow surrounded by twisted Sand Live Oaks. We are located on Bald Point near Panacea, Florida in a small, quiet beach neighborhood along the Forgotten Coast, surrounded by Bald Point State Park.

The house is 100 yards from the Gulf- to get there just walk down Grouper Street to the water, or use the boardwalk behind the house - there are no streets to cross. The fishing is fantastic, as are the local restaurants and seafood markets.

We are located 45 miles south of Tallahassee, 340 miles due south of Atlanta. The Spotted Grouper sleeps 4 with 1 queen bed and 1 double bed. Sheets and towels are provided.

Note that the Spotted Grouper is 'self-cleaning', ie our guests clean the house themselves on departure. All supplies are provided, as is a cleaning checklist.

Recent updates: Pine floors, new carpet, internet.

                                                          Quiet spot within easy access to the beach, good hiking close by.

                                                          We enjoyed the respite and quiet atmosphere at the Spotted Grouper. It was better than we had expected, knowing the house was “older”. We really had a great time and hope to do it again.

                                                          Peaceful, relaxing

                                                          Everything about this bungalow is great. The owners were very accommodating and have nice decorating skills. The view of the gulf from the cottage is awesome with a very short walk to be on the beautiful beach. It is very relaxing with all kinds of wildlife on Bald Point. It is most definitely a “10”!!!!!

                                                          Absolutely perfect!

                                                          I loved being here. It is very tranquil and very peaceful. The property itself is beautiful. The owners have taken care of every detail. I was so impressed with their place. The house is about a hundred yards from the beach, and the beach is beautiful and is very close to the State Park!

                                                          Nice place and close to beach

                                                          Jennifer W.

                                                          Loved seeing the dolphins so close to beach.

                                                          Nice and quiet.

                                                          Came down with my 3 children all under the age of 9. The place is very clean and quiet and just a short 30 second walk from the beach. The water is shallow and gives way to tidal flats when the tide is out, but the kids really enjoyed walking them and looking for seashells. Would stay again for sure!
