Overview

Florida Panhandle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

GULF FRONT HOME ON C-30

Turtle Watch is just steps from the gorgeous beaches of Cape San Blas. Enjoy the private boardwalk leading down to your own piece of paradise as this part of the beach is never crowded!

This is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home with 2 very large decks overlooking the ocean. On the first floor of the home you will find all 3 bedrooms. Bedroom #1 has a queen size bed and it's own doors leading to the deck. Bedroom #2 has a queen size bed and a full bathroom which also looks out towards the ocean. Bedroom #3 has 2 twin beds. There is also another full bath on this floor.

On the second level of the home you will find a large, open and very comfy living area. The best part are all of the doors leading out to the second deck and providing gorgeous views from anywhere in the room. There is a living area with plenty of books to read, a sleeper sofa, a dining area that sits 8 and a bar in the kitchen that will sit an additional 4 people. The kitchen is equipped with all essential cooking supplies and appliances.

This home is on the stretch of beach off of C-30. It is in a very nice and family friendly neighborhood and is less than a mile from the turn off to Indian Pass Road. Very close to the Famous Restaurant, The Raw Bar!

Please come and stay at our lovely gulf front home. The dolphins are awaiting, the birds calling and who knows maybe you will get to TURTLE WATCH!

Great pet friendly vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

An earlier review (from 2012) derided the beach as "dirty with seaweed" problem. Not at all a thing anymore.

Sand is white powder style, no seaweed was to be found. Now, she was right that you would not do any snorkeling, as the ocean there has large sandbars, so the water has silt in it from the waves crashing. The whole area, and most of the rentals, is/are dog friendly, I don't think I saw any non-dog owners at the beach. We were there during the week, and it was quite nearly a private beach. I think we ran into maybe 3 people each time we hit the beach. House is legitimately on the beach, with no houses in front or any such shenanigans. House is not luxurious, but the photos in the listing ring true. Grilling on the porch was made difficult by the constant ocean breezes, trying to blow the flames out. May have been the time of year. Anyhow, a great time for those who like pets and value privacy, vs. crowded beaches.

Great House, Not so great beach & water

  • 3 of 5

I recently stayed at Turtle Watch with my children and grandchildren. While the house itself is incredible, I was very disappointed in the beach and water clarity. There was so much seaweed washing up on shore and no clean-up that it really began to stink, and the water was so dirty that snorkeling was out of the question. You couldn't see anything in the water...not even your feet. I feel the adds for this home are misleading because it is not on the Cape it is more on Indian Pass. If you want to sit on the decks and listen to the waves roll in this is the perfect location, but not if you want to enjoy the water. The pictures of the beach in the listing is not what we saw at all. As to the house, the only complaint I have is that the beds are not very comfortable unless you like a very firm mattress. Maybe I'm spoiled to the beautiful emerald clear waters of Destin and the ability to enjoy clear water from my rental not having to drive to find it. So, if you are looking for clear water and clean beaches this is not the place to go. While I enjoyed the time with my family I will not be going back to or recommending this property to friends.

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful week we had at Turtle Watch! The location, of course, is unbeatable, as it's right on the Gulf. The boardwalk access was new and provided easy access to the beach. The home felt exactly like that--HOME. Well-furnished, cozy, up-to-date, well-kept and spacious. The decks are also large and open with lots of seating and fantastic views. I can't wait to return next year!
