Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

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.

Sorry, we do not accept renters under the age of 25.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at the Webb House in SHell Point July 2014. It was great. Excellent views. The kids loved the pool and the husband loved fishing off the pier. Everything was clean when we arrived and well stocked with towels, pillows blankets, etc. Deb was wonderful with any questions we had. I would give the experience a huge thumbs up. Thanks for the memories we created here. Sheila from Ripley, TN (Review shared from Guest Reviews on “Deb’s Forgotten Coast Rentals” Facebook page)

This place is heaven to us whenever we are lucky enough to be able to vacation here. We love the house, warm and inviting, the view is great from every room, and nothing beats a pool, a dock to fish from, and the peace and quiet of this place. Nearby Wakulla Springs and St George Island offer a great day of fishing and It is wonderful to have everything you need right in a beautiful, spacious and comfortable home. Thank you to the owners. We hope to be back the same time in 2114!!!

Webb House

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay. House is nice and roomy; however, the kids wanted to sleep in the sunroom instead of the beds!! Also loved having a private pool. View from the balcony was gorgeous. Went to beach and picked up shells while hubby fished off deck. Ate out the first nite @ Spring Creek Rest, was a little pricey but food was good and it was only a few minutes away. The only blip was the TV in main room had a bad connection and was not able to watch but just a few channels (the tv's in bedrooms had good reception) Would definetely want to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Webb House. Sounds like there was something for everybody to enjoy. I have informed the owners about the cable connection in the den and they are addressing the issue. We’re looking forward to having you back next year, if not sooner.
