About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The Webb House, Shell Point, FL

Enjoy a million dollar view from our comfortable 3 bedroom, 2 bath canal front home, which overlooks the beautiful Apalachee Bay and Gulf of Mexico. Our sunroom covers the entire back side of the house, where you can relax and watch the boats come in at sunset ... or serve up some fresh catch for your family ... or just enjoy the gulf breeze from one of our easy chairs. Our large family room (which includes the den, dining room, and kitchen) has a wall of windows and glass doors which look out onto the sunroom and share the same view. If you are a bird watcher, you will be entertained daily by pelicans, white egrets, and blue herons. Also, keep your eyes peeled for bald eagles. They hang out at the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and around Spring Creek and we are right in the middle.

We encourage folks to bring their boat. Our dock is located on a deep-water canal and is convenient to a nearby boat ramp. The Apalachee Bay offers some of the best flats fishing anywhere. You can catch speckled sea trout, redfish, Spanish mackerel, flounder, cobia, and tarpon. If you venture offshore, you can catch grouper, kingfish ... and anything else that might be swimming around in the gulf.

We are located in Shell Point, FL, which is a very small, quiet neighborhood. Our top two floors will be open for your use (our ground level floor is used for our personal storage). The second floor consists of the family room, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, sunroom, 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, and laundry room. The third floor consists of the master bedroom, bath, and a large private deck (which offers an even more spectacular view). The family room is furnished with a comfortable sofa and love-seat combo and a fully equipped entertainment center, with 32' TV. Our ccommodations will sleep 6-8 people comfortably and consist of 3 queen-size beds and 2 twin beds (trundle bed). We also invite you to chill out by our private swimming pool, which faces the canal.

Shell Point is located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. It's ideal for those who like sightseeing or photography. Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the largest fresh water springs in the world, is only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (10 minutes away), which features the St. Marks Lighthouse, offers habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife. For a close-up, hands-on examination of marine life, you can check out the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, which is 20 minutes away. Also, the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science is about 30 minutes away, and offers a look at Florida's wildlife in a natural setting.

There are other recreational interests in the immediate area. For the tennis buff, there are 6 lighted tennis courts in Medart at Wakulla High School. For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. Shell Point is a great place for windsurfing and hosts several Regattas each year. For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is less than a block from The Webb House. It is a very, very small beach located on the bay, which means that the only waves that you will see will be on a very windy day. It doesn't compare to the other two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to kick back and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets. For those who enjoy great seafood, Angelo's in Panacea (20 minutes away) is one of the finest renowned seafood restaurants anywhere - located right on the water. Nearby Spring Creek Restaurant (less than 10 minutes away) also boasts delicious seafood, including soft shell crab, along with a casual down-home atmosphere. If you decide to rent with us, we will send you a list of all of the nearby restaraunts, along with our personal rating on each one.

Shell Point is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city - malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport - and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A& M University (FAMU). If you want to escape to a relaxing, laid back paradise; yet, be able to venture into the city on a whim, this is the perfect location for you.

THIS HOUSE IS FOR SALE: The Webb House is for sale on the real estate market. Therefore, your reservation is subject to cancellation if the house sells before your rental. If this occurs, you will be notified immediately and all payments will be refunded. We may also offer another rental property suggestion, depending on availability.

About Deborah Word

My name is Deborah Word. My husband, Jerry, and I started visiting Shell Point in 1998. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with the Shell Point area. Since then, we purchased two canal front vacation rental homes in Paradise Village of Shell Point, with high hopes for future retirement there. We love fishing and photography, so Wakulla County is perfect for us. Several years later, I started handling vacation rental reservations for a few other property owners in the surrounding area. I currently manage five rentals in Shell Point, two in Ochlockonee Bay (Panacea) and one in Alligator Point.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've stayed at the Webb House three times. There's no better place to relax & enjoy life than Shell Point. We will be back next year to enjoy this hidden paradise. Deb always makes sure everything is perfect. Thank you.

Summertime fun for all the family!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the Webb House with our children, grands, and two Weimeraners! The set up was great with plenty of room for all, and with a well equipped kitchen and laundry area. Air conditioning worked well and ceiling fans were everywhere. Everyone enjoyed having the dock access for our boat plus having a great boat ramp so close by. We fished and scalloped during our stay. Nothing better than a fresh catch of the day for supper. We were able to walk the dogs on the beach but having a fenced in back yard for them was priceless. The pool was a definite plus for the hot afternoons, do be prepared to use the skimmer daily to keep it clean. The back porch was very inviting with 2 additional futons, seating for some quiet time, and a dining area, but too hot to hang out for very long in the summer. I’m sure that area would be great in the spring and fall. Ha, one dog would go up and down the spiral staircase off the back porch, the other would only come back up it! There was plenty of room to set up our dog’s kennels in the air conditioning, just be sure to bring comforters to put underneath them to protect the hardwood floor as we did. Enjoy the swing and seating under the house as well which looks out onto the pool. A true love of the water is obvious with the artwork and decor, and a passion for sailing by the Webbs. Riverside Cafe’ at St Marks was our favorite restaurant. Don’t miss out on this gem! We hope to return!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all of your kind words and it sounds like your family enjoyed our house as much as we do. You are correct about the sun room but in the winter the temperature is perfect for relaxing on the futons and reading. We hope to have your family back next year.

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Webb House 4 times, 3 years in a row. We have held our family reunion here for 3 years. Altogether we rent 4 homes. There's nowhere else I would rather go than Shell Point. It is a laid back, take life as it comes place. The Webb House is our annual rental for the reunion. The kids, grand kids & cousins love the pool & covered area. The house has a great set up for my family. We usually take a boat to fish & scallop and having the dock is great. It's a great place to take a golf cart or bikes & just ride & enjoy the area. Look forward to many more family reunions in Shell Point.
