                                                                                                      We decided to stay at Windwood House because of its location, convenient to St. Georges Island State Park, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, Carrabelle and Apalachicola. We were not disappointed. The house itself is located right on the bay, and there is a shoreline in front that made sunrise and sunset photography effortless. The house was very well supplied with every kitchen appliance you could think of, and that made catching meals between trips easy too. The hosts have thought of everything, dispensers in the showers hold shower wash, shampoo and conditioner. You have an ample supply of dishes, towels, pillows, and there is a fully stocked laundry room that was very helpful to have access to. There were Keurig pods and coffee, even an assortment of bug spray (you'll need it at night, it's Florida). The house is on two levels, on stilts, with two flights of wooden stairs to the front door. The living room has an uninterrupted set of glass windows that gives a sweeping view of the water from the kitchen and living room. The downstairs bedroom is very comfy, and has windows overlooking the water as well. The master suite on the second level is spacious with its own private deck, and there is a guest or child's room and bathroom on that level as well. There is an office nook in the master suite, and the Wi-Fi in the house made catching up on work things (as few as possible) a breeze. Pets are allowed, with permission, and one of us slept downstairs with them to follow the rule of no pets upstairs. The hosts have a nice, sturdy easy to use baby gate to restrict pets access to the top level, so you won't have to bring one if you have pets traveling with you. Windwood House fronts the main southerly route through the Forgotten Coast, but it was very quiet even for one of us who typically is a light sleeper. Our dog really liked walking on the shore, and the neighborhood across the road made for a nice dog walking route. We found the area to be beyond our expectations. We had fantastic weather, no rain, perfect beach days, and the trip to St. George Island is only about a half hour. We found plenty to keep us occupied, Apalachicola is a gem of a town, we made multiple trips there, and Carrabelle is charming and cute as well. The owners were very responsive to questions, and the only surprise about Windwood House is that it was so nice, and so spacious. We didn't want to leave, we could have moved in happily and stayed there forever.

It is very nice from top to bottom, in fact it feels brand new! It was well appointed with everything that we needed. We rented it for a couples weekend get-a-way and it fit our needs perfectly. It is a beautiful location with amazing views of the gulf and Dog Island. This has been stated, but just be aware, there is not really any beach at this location and there is no water entry for swimming or motorized boats/jet ski's. We spent time at Bald Point State Park which was beautiful and there almost no one on the beach. Also, a boat rental and a day out at Dog Island are well worth the time. The Fisherman's Wife was our favorite place to eat in Carrabelle. Thanks again Van for a great rental experience and for being so responsive. I can't recommend this location highly enough. Enjoy!
