|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The top unit of a Tri-plex on beautiful and secluded St. Teresa Beach--I just started renting a second unit which is down stairs--the first 5 photo's is the up stairs unit and the other photos are the down--if you want privacy come down and visit--no tourists--no hotels--no fast foods--just the real deal like ol Florida used to be--the nearest store is 8 miles away and the nearest town of Panacea is another 4 miles.
Alligator Point, Carrabelle, Dog Island, St. George Island, and Apalachicola are all within an hour's drive of this recently redone 2 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath beach house with an extra large front porch, outside shower, and deck.
The Ochlocknee River State Park, FSU Marine Lab, Wakulla Srings State Park and the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge are all close by with a top notch golf course, St. James Bay only minutes from the house.
Have rented the upstairs and downstairs units over the past 2 years. Both units are spacious, comfortable, clean, well stocked and best of all quiet! Most of the time was spent on the flat beaches during the day and on the screened in porch for the evening! Morning and evening dolphin shows are enjoyable! If you want a nice quiet, non-commercialized vacation spot then this is it!
Looking forward to coming again sometime!
I took my five year old twin grandsons here in mid-June and we loved it. Great location between Ochlockonee Bay and Carrabelle with clear shallow water for the little ones to play and miles of beach for our low tide "treasure walks". We enjoyed eating all our meals on the screened porch and being so close to the water was great with little ones. The home was spacious, clean and comfortable and we have a week long stay scheduled next month to enjoy fall fishing and more beach time with all the little ones.
We really enjoyed our stay at this Hidden Gem ! The accommodations were very clean and comfortable, with a huge front porch that was perfect for early morning coffee and watching the sunrise. The beach is only a few steps from the house and our two hairy children (okay, they are actually dogs but don't tell them!) had the time of their lives playing in the waves and on the shoreline. It was so refreshing!! We will be returning as soon as our schedules will allow!
My wife and I stayed in the downstairs unit for 1 week. We asked about arriving early and was told by the owner that we could absolutely come as early as noon and that the unit would be ready. We showed up around 1 and the housekeeper was shocked! The housekeeper told us that the owner had told the people staying in the unit that they could stay as long as they needed...needless to say we had to wait about 2 hours. Not a huge deal but strike 1. We finally get in and the owners daughter is staying upstairs...the pounding on the ceiling was quite loud but not too bad because we were spending most of the time outside. It is not quiet at all on the weekends as you are very close to neighbors and the other 2 units that are in this house alone. Then as we were laying down at the beach the owners daughter asks to come into our unit to get her water skis. Strike 2! Come to find out the front and back porch are SHARE porches with the upstairs unit and the unit right next door. There were loud phone conversations on the back porch right outside our window! You actually had to pull a wooden divider across the front porch to separate yourself from the unit next door. The unit itself was VERY dated and a bit dirty. There was mold in the bathrooms and on the blinds...the owner lives there and all his clothes were in the drawers and closets so we couldn't use those...the fridge was like walking into someones house with all of their condiments, half used milk, etc...the freezer was a mess with coffee grinds everywhere. The water was actaully brown the whole time we were there...we even had brown ice that the fridge made...obviously we had lots of bottled water and bags of ice! The beach was actually very close and that was nice, but the beach is not your "Destin" type beach...LOTS of sea grass washed up shore and not alot of room to put your chairs when the tide is up. This all being said...strike 3. We would NOT recommend this rental.
We were looking for a quiet place to spend some family time on the beach. We found this home and decided to give it a try after reading others' reviews and doing a little research on the area. St. Teresa is a tiny place and definitely "off the map" as far as the normal hustle and bustle goes. Once we arrived we made a trip to the grocery store (a must) and, other than a short break to Apalachicola, didn't leave during our vacation. We found everything to be as was advertised and just as others have stated in their reviews. The owner has thought of everything and goes out of his way to make sure your stay is enjoyable. High on our list . . . we really enjoyed the beach at low tide. Be sure to read tidal charts and explore the shallow waters for crabs and other creatures, but be on the lookout for stingrays and jellyfish. We saw a few but avoided them with a little care. We were fortunate enough to see Manatees (very rare) and dolphins during our stay. Our thanks goes out to the owner for sharing his home. We can't wait to go back!
My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at this house earlier this year and it was beyond perfect. The pictures do not do the view from the porch justice. We had an amazing time and it was just what we needed. If you have a boat this is the place to stay. There are several close boat ramps in the area, and anchoring in front of the house is a breeze with no need to take the boat out every night. The inshore fishing here is some of the best the panhandle has offer, and is only a 5 minute boat ride from the house in either direction. If you happen to see another person on the beach during your stay you will be greeted with a smile and a friendly face. Can’t say enough about the owner extremely helpful and treats you like family. We will surely be back very soon!
