Property Details

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

Check my calendar and latest info on wwww.fishhorseshoebeach.comm. This stilt house is located in a natural and secluded area known as

Horseshoe Beach: Florida's Last Frontier, and the best area to get

scallops when in season. The grass flats fishing inshore offers

Reds, Trout, etc... not to mention the offshore grouper. There are

no better flats in Florida than this area.

20 minutes from Cross City to the West and Steinhatchee to the

North, this quiet little community resembles Key West in the early

days, before tourism hit. Horseshoe Beach is a key-like community

shaped like a horseshoe with an elaborate system of canals. The

canal system offers protection for boats from the wake of the gulf,

yet you can reach the open gulf waters 300 ft from the boat dock in

the back of the house.

Horseshoe Beach is a place where you can go get away and enjoy

Florida's Nature Coast, a.k.a., the "Big Bend". There are several

off road trails to cruise in vehicles, bikes, or by foot in which

you will see some of the elite wildlife. The activities here are

endless, but it's also very nice if you just want to hang out and

enjoy the serenity and the key-like atmosphere.

Our favorite thing to do here is pull up the traps in the back dock

and boil up some delicious blue-crabs which are available year-

round. It is always nice to catch your dinner by rod & reel, by

swimming, or by simply pulling on a rope connected to one of the

three crab traps tied to the dock. FYI- the boat ramp is one block

away and is an easy walk back from the house to pick up your vehicle.

The house is very simple yet has everything you need and is very

comfortable. Please call anytime to reserve.

Long Weekend Family Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5
Gill's Gulf House is a wonderful getaway. We were very pleased with the property and the fishing. My brothers and I liked the quick gulf access and boat dock. From a mile out in the gulf, you motor in, pull up, tie off & get out of the July heat in a matter of minutes. Horseshoe Beach is old Florida; nice folks, very peaceful and quiet....Overall the trip was great and really worked well for us. We'll be back!

Week in horseshoe beach

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time and caught lots of scallops and blue crab. Very roomy two bedroom two bath. There are plenty of crab right around the dock of this home. Everything was just as shown and was maybe a minute boat ride to the Gulf. One of the kitchen windows was broken from the previous renter when we arrived and the owner had somebody to replace it that day. Very friendly small town. We plan to come back next year.

Great Place For The Fishermen!!!

  • 4 of 5
Fishermen, don't stay anywhere else. This has all the amenities a fisherman will need. Six of us stayed 4 nights very comfortable...clean house, linens, and very good AC. Extra large rooms for 6 men to move around. Extra large kitchen with everything you need. Below the house we kept our canoes and kayaks and did a Low country boil that included blue crabs caught out of the canal with the provided traps. Grills provided where we charbroiled oysters and grilled fresh fish!! The fish cleaning station is very nice as well. House is located within walking distance of the boat ramp, cafe, marina, and the point.
Gil(owner) was very easy to deal with and please contact him for my number if you need a reference. Thanks Gil for the perfect spot!!!
