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.

Awesome home!!

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive vacation home with all of the comforts needed. Well appointed home secluded from traffic and noise. Short walk to the beach. A great value for what you get. The bedrooms were great all with their own bath and walk out deck. Kitchen had equipment necessary to cook in (we did). The only downer is grocery shopping is a little bit of a drive. Proper planning can fix that however. We will be back!

Summer breeze in December

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic! A little further from Tallahassee than we were looking for but the house and location were well worth the extra drive. The boardwalk just down the street that leads to the beach provided quick access to a lovely and secluded beach where we took many walks at all times of the day. The amenities in the house were excellent. We used the kayaks one afternoon but the weather was not the best so we didn't go far. We also took the bicycles out around the neighborhood a couple of days. The house itself provided excellent views from the many decks. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very comfortable and stocked with plenty of towels and paper products. There are many restaurants nearby but we only tried one in Panacea. We really loved our stay and everyone agrees that we should make sure we need to return next time we are visiting the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your helpful review and we do make every effort to keep the house well stocked with everything you need! We'd love to have you back again, and you will get to try some of the other restaurants in the area, and maybe check out nearby Wakulla Springs. We hope to see you again soon. And once you get used to the drive, it is just a short trip (about 1 hour) from Tallahassee!

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!
