About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 1/2 Bath

This spectacular beach front home in SummerCamp Beach is truly a vacation home like no other. Perfect for large or extended families, this Gulf Front home has 3 master suites all with a private luxury baths. Two bunkrooms provide 8 more beds offering plenty of sleeping arrangements for children of all ages. A gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry will delight those who truly want a first class experience. Designed from the ground up to take advantage of the ocean setting, this home puts you at the edge of the water with breath taking views for literally miles out to the Gulf of Mexico. A gentle breeze awaits you on the spacious screened porch that wraps the entire front of the house. Down below features a large gathering area where you can shower outdoors after swimming or beach combing. Two large family rooms allow for total living space flexibility with flat screen tvs in every bedroom. The unique architecture of the home provides massive windows throughout, offering amazing views of the entire beach area. With no neighbors to the left of right, you will feel like you have stepped into your private paradise. This home is truly one of a kind.

'Happy Ours' is located in SummerCamp beach. This resort community provides a unique beach experience that is both rustic and natural at the same time.

There is a community pool within walking distance of the home. Kick back and enjoy breathtaking views of the gulf as you lounge under a cabana or swim in the pool.

If you are looking for adventure, walk down to the kayak shack and hop on one of the kayaks or canoes. Cruise the shallows of the gulf while getting up close and personal with the sea life. Watch out for jumping mullet!

Commune with nature as you walk along one of the many boardwalks in the community that wind through the undisturbed marshlands, wetlands and woods.

This is what old Florida feels like and you will sense that you have stepped back into a simpler time, where fishing, boating, shelling, swimming and reconnecting with family is possible. Located just 45 minutes south of the Tallahassee airport, getting here is quite convenient, but leaving will be very hard.

Perfect beach stay!

  • 5 of 5

This propert was absolutely beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. You are on the beach with a flawless view. The house was clean and had ample accommodations for our large group. Plenty of room to spread out. The beds were very comfortable and loved the three master suites. The pool was only a quick walk down the beach. More than enough beach toys and loungers. Just bring your beach towels and your food and drink and you are all set! I Cannot say enough good things about this beach vacation.

Spacious very clean home

  • 4 of 5

Six old guys rented the house on our latest bicycle trip. It served as a good base for our activities including biking the St Marks to Tallahassee trail as well as a shorter one through StMarks wildlife preserve and a short kayak trip down the Wakulla River.

It provided comfortable sleeping and living arrangement for us. Nice gulf view. Quiet surroundings.

Some negatives: poor beach for swimming as well as walking.

Need to drive a bit to dine, but much 20-30 minutes.

I'm not a fan of writing reviews, BUUUUUT....

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at VRBOs in the past and I've always been hesitant to use them again. While looking for a Spring Break trip with a 7-year old and a 3-year old, we found Happy Ours but alas, it was 4 hours more than we wanted to travel (8 total).

Boy, did we make the right decision. We got a rate of about $400/night and it was a total bargain to spend the night in luxury in an approximate $1.43 million dollar home. Everything was clean, the beach was perfect (the tide pulled back, opening up pools of water and sand), and I can't recommend everything enough. Erika (the property lady) responded to every question I had within the hour. I felt like a prince.

Two to three families could easily have enough space here. Like other reviews have mentioned, you are very isolated out here, which is great because I HATE PEOPLE. We found fish markets within a 30 minute drive and cooked every night, but I'd suggest loading up on necessities on your way here, as it's never fun to drive an hour to a Wal-Mart or a Piggly Wiggly that looks like it could be featured in a horror movie.

A+ all around. Even with a screaming 3-year old for most of the way, the extra 8 hours paid off. Thank you for a wonderful vacation and thank you Erika for helping us!

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.

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.
