Why Julie Schulz chose Florida

This unspoiled area of the Gulf coast has been unchanged for many years. Small towns along Highway 98 reflect the relaxed atmosphere of the south. Charter a fishing boat, eat the freshest oysters you ever had, and explore unique shops in Apalachicola.

What makes this house unique

You can really get away from the rat race here. It area has been left 'natural' and is home to many birds, deer, even the occasional black bear or the little gator that lives in the pond across the road. Even in the warmest weather, the screened porch is comfortable for dining. And the beach is nearly private, and has gentle waves and the beautiful soft white sand that this area is famous for.

Outstanding wildlife!!!! Seclusion was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property, beach was full of wildlife....starfish, conch shells (we found one intact measuring over 12" long and 7" wide), saw a bald eagle, dolphins. We saw one other person on the beach in 3 days! Beautiful home, comfortable beds, full bath in every room! We will return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and got to see so much of the wildlife. It's always special to see not only a bald eagle, but dolphins too! Come back any time and maybe you'll spot a deer. And we hope you had time to enjoy the great seafood in this area! We hope to see you again soon!

Beautiful spot for family and friends to enjoy quiet and peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed sitting on the beach, riding the bikes, kayaking, and canoeing!

None of us wanted to go home!

We are looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the house and took advantage of the nearly private beach, and the quiet and relaxing area. If you didn't have a chance this visit, check out Wakulla Springs next time you visit and be sure to take the boat ride up the river and experience "Old Florida". We will see you again soon!

Very quiet beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a very quiet beach vacation this is the place. This house was very comfortable and clean. It is roomy and with the bedrooms on different floors very private. Everything you will need is provided and in good condition. The area is very well kept and there is no one around on the beach in the pool or around the development. The beach is clean and the water very shallow nice white sand easy to walk or just sit and relax. There are several good restaurants in the area Angelos and Sons was excellent for fresh seafood and not a la carte anymore. Overall a nice place to visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review of the house. I'm sure it will help other guests know what to expect. Also, good to know that Angelo's is not a la carte any longer. It's close to the house and has great views. We'd love to have you back any time, so just give us a call!

Best vacation rental experience we've had!

  • 5 of 5

It was beautiful! If you like to be away from the crowd this is the place for you. We were a 3 generation group and we ALL loved it! The house is large enough the 6 of us had more than enough room. We went to the beach daily, sharing it with a couple fishermen and many ocean creatures...crabs, starfish, manta rays. It's a very calm shallow area, which was great for our 3 year olds. It was amazing. The pool was also very nice, very well taken care of and never crowded. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jill for providing a great picture of what this area is all about. It's also great to know that 3 generations all came together and enjoyed it. We'd love to have your family back again any time you can get away for a relaxing vacation.

Solitude is Bliss

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very peaceful to say the least which was exactly what we were looking for. The 'community' is very large and there are only five or so other homes, none of which were within site. The beach was easily accessible and a short walk of 5 - 7 minutes. We saw no other people at the beach during our weeklong stay in mid-June. No waves, several skittish stingrays who quickly swam the other way, and zero litter. The Clubhouse pool was 2 miles down the road. Very large, no people (most days we were the only family in the pool and on the deck). Short 100 yard walk over decking to another beach and the Kayak Shack and a fishing pier. The Home itself was very clean, plenty of bath and beach towels, working dishwasher, washer, dryer etc. and well stocked with paper products, soaps, etc., an icemaker that actually works, etc. Décor - think Pottery Barn. Screened deck a nice option. 2nd deck was popular with kids due to huge hammock. Wireless internet and cable TV, including many premium movie channels, worked flawlessly. Bikes and other beach equipment in locked closets were easily accessible and in good condition. Though our teenagers would have liked a few more people on the beach or at the pool, they quickly adapted, and for us adults - a pleasure to get away from cars, people in a hurry, and the daily routine. The black bear sighted crossing the road was another treat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review and we are so pleased that you enjoyed all of the amenities of the house, and the beach etc. We make every effort to make sure our guests are comfortable and have what they need during their stay. I'm so envious you saw a black bear! In my many trips to the house and the area, I've only seen a bear twice; once crossing Hwy 98 and once running into the woods near the entrance to SummerCamp. We hope you'll come back soon and maybe you'll spot a deer!

Spacious and exceedingly comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I had a great stay with friends at this house for wedding weekend. We all really appreciated how spacious it was. It had everything that we needed for our stay. This rental was far nicer than other ones our other friends had rented in the area. Property manager was very responsive to all any and all needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you Madeleine, for your informative review. We try to make the house as comfortable and livable as if you were at home and we are glad that it worked well for your group. We hope you had some time in your busy schedule to enjoy the beach and some of the surrounding areas. If not, or it you would just like to spend some more time in this great area, we would love to have you back, and tell your friends about your visit!
