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 peek-a-boo 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.

Our beaches here are rustic and natural. At certain times during the year there may be seaweed that washes ashore and may decrease the amount of beach that is exposed.

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!

Summer Camp

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the home very much, it was exactly as advertised.

We did not like the area at all, no water to swim in, to shallow.

Peaceful, lovely beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what great amenities in this new home. From the rocking chairs on the front porch, to the comfy dining in the screened in porch, to the lush landscape surrounding the outside Chiminea; this house has it all. Tasteful, high-end furnishings, appliances, and decor. My only complaint is the feather pillows (I'm allergic!). I'll be back...

cottage comfort by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well appointed cottage home in a secluded development on Florida's forgotten coast was a delight! Thoughtfulness and quality throughout. Relax and unwind in this casual yet classy home just steps from the beach. Enjoyed coffee each morning on the screen porch. Sunsets from provided kayaks were memorable. This is a quiet stretch of Florida coast; perfect for unplugging from the hectic pace of regular life. Beautiful beaches less than 30 minutes away.

Cute, quiet, well appointed

  • 5 of 5

This is a darling cottage on Florida's "Forgotten Coast". It is beautifully decorated and has a very convenient floor plan with privacy for the master bedroom. The setting is quiet and peaceful and there are all the conveniences you like ... Wi-Fi, washer, dryer, dishwasher, flat screen TV's, etc. Erica was most helpful in our transition and Sea La Vie suited all our needs. We will definitely go back!!

Fish, canoe or swim in the Gulf of Mexico and then stroll along boardwalks winding through the woods in search of fireflies.

Should your wanderlust take you farther, SummerCamp Beach is surrounded by a national forest, a state forest as well as the St. George Island and Ochlockonee River State Parks.
