About the property

House - 2 Bedrooms, Daybed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

St. Teresa Beach is located off Highway 98 and is not visible from the highway. St. Teresa Avenue will bring you to our home and the private beach community of St. Teresa. You will have covered parking when you arrive.

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. 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 5 people. Our cleaning fee is based on that maximum. If you have overnight guests over the maximum of 5, 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.

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.

All of the following are local attractions within 30-45 minutes from our home:

St. George Island is surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Apalachicola Bay. St. George Island State Park is located at the end of the island and is regularly rated one of Florida's most beautiful beaches. The Annual Chili Cook-off and Auction is held each year around March on the island.

Apalachicola is a quaint, historical town located west of St. Teresa. It has many beautiful, old homes, unique shopping and great restaurants with wonderful fresh seafood. Apalachicola is the home of The Florida Seafood Festival, usually held in November.

St. James Bay Golf Course is located four miles from our home and is an 18-hole championship course. The clubhouse includes The Crooked River Grill Restaurant, tennis courts, and swimming pool.

Ochlocknee River State Park has picnic facilities, a swimming area, boat ramp and an abundance of wildlife. The park is great for canoeing and fishing.

Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory is located in Panacea and is open to visitors. It features 30,000 gallon marine aquarium with hundreds of species of marine life. Children can have hands on experience with some of the sea creatures.

Wakulla Springs State Park is the home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world. Riverboat tours and glass bottom boat tours are available. Wakulla Springs Lodge has a full-service dining room.

St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to bird watch and check out an old lighthouse built in 1831. And, of course, there are always Alligators!

Mexico Beach is approximately one hour and you can be in Panama City in two hours.

If you are bored with the wonderful peace and quiet St. Teresa offers, you can always visit Tallahassee, The Capitol of Florida and the home of the Florida State Seminoles for a little more action. Tallahassee is one hour away, with great shopping and wonderful restaurants. Not to mention -- it is a beautiful city!

Check it out!!

If you want your own private beach, this is the place for you!

The perfect 'get away' is within your will fall in love with St. Teresa Beach.

The beach was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 days with 3 small kids. My boys really enjoyed all the crabs, fish, even spotted several bald eagles and dolphins daily. The few neighbors we seen was really friendly. Can't wait to go back:)

Didn't think I would encounter bears at the beach!

  • 3 of 5

I missed the word duplex when I rented this property. No privacy renting a duplex. Owners parents were nice but I worried about disturbing them. Just wasn't relaxed. Two nights a bear was on the back porch getting food out the refrigerator on the other side. If you like bears , this is the place for you! Location on the beach is excellent and house is clean. Sliding doors need some work. Had to stay indoors at night because of the bear. Game warden needs to know about this bear.

Beautiful, quiet beach. Only beach homes, no condos! The bay is protected so the surf is very soothing. This is a well-loved family beach house with enough kitchen dishes/pots and pans to feed a small army. We found this area of the pan handle to be more like a community than a tourist spot, which was refreshing. Many State Parks in the area and no lack of outdoor things to do.

I have been meaning to write a review for a long time now. I cannot say enough about this home!! My family and I have stayed here three times!! We absolutely love it!!! It really feels like our home away from home! Mike, Vicki, and Ashley are simply amazing!! They are such a sweet family!! We feel and are treated just like family!! We enjoy catching up with Mike, and my daughter would throw the tennis ball for Striker all day!!! She delights in watching him splash into the water to retrieve it!! It is the perfect home to relax and slow down in. It suits our lifestyle perfectly! The area offers lots of opportunities for nature lovers. We even saw a black bear and two cubs on one of our trips down. There are also some great local restaurants to enjoy! The best part, of course, is the beach!!!! Our lives, while there, revolves around low tide!! It is an ideal location for children to enjoy marine life. Also, ideal for parents!! There are no rip tides or crowds to worry about!! It is also an easy, short walk to the water. As someone with MS, the accessibility is a blessing! Also, if you don't want to walk, the wonderful screened in porch is a great place to sit and enjoy the beach! I seriously cannot express how lucky we are to have found this hidden jewel! I also cannot thank the Hopkins family enough for sharing their piece of paradise with the world!! We love you Hopkins family, and can't wait to come back soon!!!
