About the property

Nestled alongside the Gulf of Mexico, located in the SummerCamp Beach

Nestled alongside the Gulf of Mexico, this home called 'Sea La Vie', located in the Summer Camp Beach resort property, beckons you with soft white sand, nature trails and privacy not often found in today's busy world. With nearly four miles of Gulf beach shoreline surrounded by 762 acres of woods with towering pines, twisting oaks and fan-like palmettos, this community is a celebration of nature, offering an inspirational refuge to enjoy the great outdoors. The area boasts some of the best fishing in Florida. From flats, bay, surf, or offshore fishing, we've got the angler in your family covered.

Your personal 3 bedroom, 2 bath beachside home will have you relaxing by sunset. This home features a King Bed in the master suite, a queen in the second bedroom, and a bunk bed with a trundle to provide comfortable sleeping for 7. Your private ocean view home provides all the amenities of what you expect in a coastal escape. Granite countertops, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and wood covered walls will make you feel right at home. Screen porch in the back lets you take advantage of the amazing gulf view.

Summer Camp Beach resort provides opportunities to fish, boat, kayak, hike, all while being nestled amongst the tall pines in an area of Florida that is still completely unspoiled. Vacationing at Sumer Camp Beach allows you ample time to create wonderful family memories without sacrificing comfort. The resort property has a beautiful swimming pool for you to enjoy at your leisure, complete with locker facilities and a changing room. Walk down to the Kayak Shack where kayaks and canoes await free of charge for residents and guests. Climb aboard your kayak and paddle your way closer to nature than you ever thought possible. Smell the salt in the air, feel the warm water on your skin as you glide through the clear, shallow protected waters of the gulf, viewing sea life hands on!

At the end of the day, you may feel inclined to walk along the boardwalk in a coastal preserve to witness amazing sunsets.

The St. James Bay golf course is a short 10 minute drive, where you can enjoy championship conditions. Apalachicola is only 45 minutes away, and is famous for some of the best oysters in the country, and provides a wonderful opportunity to enjoy old Florida.

If you are tired of crowds and want a more relaxing, peaceful vacation, you will absolutely love 'Sea La Vie' here at Summer Camp Beach. The Forgotten Coast awaits you!

Gorgeous Coastal Retreat in Summer Camp Beach, Sleeps 7
average rating of 4.92 based on 50 reviews

Cozy cottage, complete with all the necessary amenities, close to beach

  • 5 of 5

Perfect quick getaway with the kids for spring break! Beautifully decorated, and well equipped, we cooked in every meal and enjoyed our time inside as much as our time outside. Easy walk to beach on the trail! A little nippy in March so we built a fire on the beach and were able to comfortably enjoy our time in the sun. Would recommend to families or for a couples getaway!

Lovely home and very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to the panhandle area, and our favorite home so far. Everything is clean, the pictures display the property very well. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes/pans/utensils for preparing meals and the appliances are all fairly new. The beach is very close (short walk), and we walked it daily. We took the advice of a prior review and went to Turkey Point for the warmest day....very nice beach for sunning, wading and dolphin watching (bit too cold for swimming in January, at least for me). We enjoy Hamaknockers in Crawfordville for good BBQ, and we've lunched in several places in Apalachicola. Apalachicola is very dog-friendly, we usually take our little 10 pound Yorkie, many restaurants have outdoor seating and dogs can rest under the table while you eat - love that! Some cute shops (RiverLily is my favorite). Hiked several days in St. Marks, and we enjoy the boat ride at Wakulla Springs every time we come - great guides navigate and there's lots of wildlife to view.

We visit the area every 2-3 years or so, and would certainly book this home again.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time renting the house through VRBO. The house and property are very clean and all we needed to bring was food and some fire wood. The beach is about a 2 minute walk from the house and the sunsets should not be missed. We charted a boat with Captain Dwayne/BMAC on Sunday and caught plenty of fish. We will be back.

Owner's Response: A very hearty thank you for returning to Sea LaVie! Thanks for the pointer on the fishing charter, we may check that out on our next visit down. See you again soon! Tod & Cathy

One of the Nicer Places!

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly how the pictures show, clean, everything you need is there and tastefully decorated. We arrived at night and it was a bit hard to find so I would suggest arriving in the daylight. The neighbors were so very helpful and went out of their way to help us find the home and people are so friendly in this town and surrounding areas.

Perfect Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented during Thanksgiving Week 2016. My 2 boys (age 11 & 15), my wife & my in-laws wanted a very peaceful getaway. If you are looking for a place for easy access to Malls, Movie Theaters, etc. - this is not the place. But - if you are looking for a quiet cozy get away with access to UNTAINTED beaches, no TRAFFIC, and just QUIET - this is the place to rent.

We came armed with a variety of board games, books, and (actually) a lot of pre-made meals. We relaxed (a lot) and walked the beaches. The house comes with everything you'd need - we made a fire, explored the beach, etc. With the community you have access to kayaks & canoes which was convenient. As long as you know what you are getting (the forgotten coast) and you know there isn't tons of great restaurants, etc. the place is perfect for a peaceful little getaway.

Owner's Response: So happy you chose to spend your Thanksgiving at Sea La Vie. We were just down on a "maintenance" trip and added a few more board games to the collection. Hope you can come back again soon to try out the numerous amazing sea food restaurants in the area. Tod & Cathy

Located on St. James Island, SummerCamp Beach's environmentally friendly design integrates its homes and amenities with the natural surroundings.

More than half of this coastal community has been set aside for conservation, featuring open space and conservation land, beautiful beaches, wildlife habitats and undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods. Fish, canoe or swim in the Gulf of Mexico and then stroll along boardwalks winding through the woods in search of fireflies.
