Property Details

Updated: Oct 28, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Only minutes from the Apalachee Bay and spectacular fishing, our comfortable 4 bedroom vacation home in Shell Point, Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee) is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, which has a community swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is your own private boat dock, located on a point, overlooking the bay. The dock is HUGE, with ample room for 3 boats and is also convenient to a nearby boat ramp. This is the view that everyone else in Paradise Village is jealous of! If you are an early bird, you can enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the sunrise across the bay and over Live Oak Island. Any time of the day, you can kick back on the porch and watch the boats come and go ... or enjoy nature at its best, with blue herons, pelicans, white egrets, and dolphins. To catch sunset, you can go to Shell Point Beach and be in awe as the sky is painted with a different variation of colors each night. This is truly a relaxing paradise!

We offer approximately 1630 sq. ft. of spacious living quarters, featuring 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen, and a large screened-in porch that stretches across the bay side. The family room is a large open space and is furnished with comfortable den furniture, 32" TV, dining furniture and bar seating. Our accommodations will sleep 7-8 people comfortably, and consist of a king size bed, 2 double size beds, 1 twin bed - each is in a separate bedroom, along with a sleeper sofa and rollaway twin. Perfect for any size family or a bunch of guys who just want to fish.

Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and 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, and snakes, 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 a habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife. (Bald eagles have been spotted here and at Spring Creek - so keep your eyes peeled!) 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 about a block and a half from Pirate Point. 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 are interested in fishing (trout, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, cobia, flounder, grouper, black bass ... it's saltwater fishing, so the list goes on), boating, or ... if you just 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.

We had the opportunity to use this home a couple of weeks ago. WOW! We brought our boat and had it docked right outside the home, so easy to wake up and hop on the boat to head out for a day of fun. St. Marks, Wakulla River, Spring Creek are all close by and easy to boat to. The home was super clean, comfortable and very well equipped with everything you need! The view is outstanding! Can't wait to return!!

This property was absolutely amazing! The house was gorgeous, spacious, and equipped with everything and more needed for that special getaway. The views were absolutely breath-taking! My parents were very happy and plan to make this location one of their annual vacation spots! As a local I can't wait for some downtime just to get away! A special thanks to all those who made this possible :)

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Pirate's Point. The home was very clean and welcoming, truly felt at home during our stay there. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans,dishes, utensils, and appliances. Bed was very comfortable, towels plentiful...just couldn't have asked for more. The area,with it's rich history, offers so much to see and do, but we chose to just relax and enjoy our time right in the back yard on the bay, watching the boats, birds, spectacular sunrises, and exploring the beach for treasures. Hope to come back when the weather is warmer and try our hand at fishing and crabbing again. Rental agent, Deborah, and owners, Mimi and Randy could not have been more helpful and accomodating. Would highly recommend this property.
