People come to Carrabelle not only for fabulous fishing but also to sail, snorkel, scuba dive, scallop, play on the beaches or to just steal away from the real world for a while. Wildlife is plentiful here in Carrabelle. It is not unusual to spot a deer, fox, blue heron, pelican or even a family of black bears at play. If luck is really with you, you may be entertained by local dolphins when walking the beach or riding in a boat while visiting Carrabelle. Here you can truly unwind and enjoy the beauty of our white-sand beaches and river marshes while you take in the sound of softly lapping waves and the rustle of palms swaying in the gentle breezes.
Very pleased! Very clean and well maintained. Will be back.
We had a wonderful vacation! Thank you Mr. Vaughn! The condo has great view, and we loved pier. The only thing was we didn't have any cell signal in that area.
Mr Vaughn was wonderful to work with. It was a little warm upstairs but probably only needed filter change. Called about sheets for sofa sleeper and extra bath cloths and they were there within a very short time. The maid was more than accommodating. I feel sure we will be staying here again and maybe bring our families. Views were beautiful.
This condo is all that it is stated to be and more. It is very nice from top to bottom, in fact it feels brand new! It was well appointed with everything that we needed. We rented it for a couples weekend get-a-way and it fit our needs perfectly. It is a beautiful location with amazing views of the gulf and Dog Island. This has been stated, but just be aware, there is not really any beach at this location and there is no water entry for swimming or motorized boats/jet ski's. We spent time at Bald Point State Park which was beautiful and there almost no one on the beach. Also, a boat rental and a day out at Dog Island are well worth the time. The Fisherman's Wife was our favorite place to eat in Carrabelle. Thanks again Van for a great rental experience and for being so responsive. I can't recommend this location highly enough. Enjoy!
Thanks so much!! We had an amazing vacation!! The unit was so nice and spacious and truly was more like a home than a condo! We enjoyed being able to spread out and not be piled on top of each other. There was plenty of room for all! The view is amazing from the master bedroom and the main living area. I absolutely loved being able to cook and look out over the water at the same time. And I loved that they provided more than the usual junky limited cookware that you see in a rental. My husband and father loved being able to go fish on the pier whenever they wanted. We will definitely be back.... Maybe in the spring.... with some friends!!!
We stayed 3 nights in June. The view is stunning from both decks, as the photos show. Quality finishes, appliances, & furniture. Covered parking was nice. Note that the beach here is not swim-friendly. It is full of sticks and a thick layer of mud from the protected grasses. We did park our chairs on the beach, though. BUT, there's a gorgeous beach in Carrabelle, just 10 miles away, that we picnicked at every day. It's a quiet, local community that fit our needs perfectly. There is a grocery store and one, small but fantastic seafood place in town, but other than that, we hung out here. I will recommend to all our friends and we will be back!
Located in the Panhandle of Florida just Southwest of Tallahassee, Carrabelle is the last vestige of Old Florida, a haven for discriminating people who love the coastal outdoors but shy away from crowds.
