One Particular Harbor is a “Magic kind of Medicine” The moment you enter, the view will take your breath away. The spacious Great Room features an entire wall of windows to the Gulf and a large Covered Deck – A Great Place to Relax and watch the world go by. Jimmy Buffet must have been thinking of this very spot when he wrote this song. The dolphins and shrimp boats will keep you glued to your seat. This is a very relaxing, casual beach home, decorated with the intent to be “magic medicine” for stress relief and memory making. There’s a fireplace for cool nights, a 46” Flat Screen TV/DVD/VCR, Stereo (& lots of beach music), books, CD’s – all to get you in the mood for rest, relaxation and fun. The kitchen features multiple seating at the “L” shaped, granite bar or large Dining Table. We’re fully stocked with Dinnerware, Pots & Pans, Utensils and appliances for cooking up some of our fabulous, fresh, local seafood. Lots & lots of original art work all around.
The Master Suite offers King size Bed, 3 sided Mirrored Granite Vanity and the Best View you’ll ever wake up to. The 2nd Bedroom sports a King size Bed, TV/DVD and a view of the Beach. The 3rd Bedroom has cable/internet connection & twin beds. Kids of all ages love the 4th, Downstairs Bedroom/Bath featuring a small fridge, microwave & coffee pot. We call it “Jimmy’s Hideaway” There’s a Fish Cleaning Table with sink & running water, that’s really handy after you catch a few Pompano or Red Fish, & a Hot/Cold Outdoor Shower that’s convenient & fun after a day on the Beach for you or Fido, and a Boardwalk to the Beach with Arched Bridgeway over our beautiful dune. There’s paved, covered parking, a picnic table and, Best of all, it’s all just a short walk to everything the Island has to offer.
If you get enough relaxing (Did I say that?), the State Park over the last 7 miles of the Island to the East offers unspoiled, natural beaches, NOBODY around, nature trails, wildlife galore & great shelling and was among Dr. Beach's Top 10 in 2011. There’s a paved Bike Path from the State Park for 24 miles, wonderful restaurants featuring fresh local seafood that’s worth the trip, shopping, and, of course, you’ve got to climb the Lighthouse and go through the Museum & Gift Shop just a short walk on the beach from the house. There are boat ramps, kayak rentals, jet skis, sailboats, fishing, crabbing, shelling & so much more. A little further out, back on the mainland, there’s great shopping, eating, and exploring in ”old Florida” towns like Apalachicola, full of history & intrigue. Further out, St James Bay to the East & St Joe Country Club offer Golfing to the public AND don’t miss Wakulla Springs, St Marks Lighthouse and much, much more.
Our home is Pet Friendly for one small, well behaved Dog. Check with owner for exceptions. We have a strictly enforced “NO SMOKING” policy. We want you and your family to have a Great, Relaxing, Memorable Vacation, leave the home like you’d like to find it, and come back year after year for more “magic medicine”.

One Particular Harbor was the perfect vacation beach house for me and my family. We ranged in age from 17 to 81, and everyone, including the dog, was thrilled with the house and the beach.
The house was ideal for us. The spacious great-room, large kitchen connected to eating area and living room, was perfect to ensure that no one was left out of anything happening, as well as being a great place to watch the dolphins swim by almost every day.
The 17- and 22-year-olds appreciated the wave runner rental location that was about a 1/2 mile walk down the beach, and the Blue Parrot has great grouper dishes and a fun beachside bar.
The owners clearly and accurately represented their property and were extremely easy to work with.
I recommend One Particular Harbor to anyone seeking the perfect family vacation home.
