vacation rental description

Our comfortable 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhouse is located in George's Lighthouse Point on Ochlockonee Bay.  That's in Panacea - about 40 miles south of Tallahassee on Hwy. 98. Right out our back door, we have a cozy little deck overlooking gorgeous Ochlockonee Bay. This is the good life that we all dream about!

Consider this your own private paradise and kick back and leave your troubles behind. Right across the way from our front door is the pool and tennis court. It doesn't get more convenient than that!  Also, just a few steps away is Angelo's Restaurant, regularly voted as one of the "Top 100 Restaurants in Florida". Newly remodeled (courtesy of Hurricane Dennis 2005), Angelo's boasts mouth watering seafood (and other dishes), with indoor seating and casual outdoor seating right over the water!

We offer 1500 sq. ft. of living area, which includes 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, den, kitchen, dining area, deck and balcony. The family area is furnished with comfortable den furniture (including a double sleeper sofa) and is open to the dining area and the kitchen. The downstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed and has access to the half bath. The other two bedrooms and bathrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed and offers a spectacular view from the balcony. Enjoy your morning coffee in privacy as you step from the bedroom out the back door onto the balcony. You can spend hours viewing wildlife on the bay or just enjoy watching the boats go by. The other upstairs guest room is furnished with 2 trundle beds (which equals 4 twin beds). Our accommodations will sleep 8-10 people comfortably. Perfect for most any size group or family.

The fishing is as good as it gets in this area. You can fish in the bay, head out for deep-sea fishing, or go down the river for fresh water fishing. We have it all!!! If you bring your boat, you can launch it at the boat launch on Mashes Sands Rd. (about 1 mi. away) and boat slips are available for rent on-site or at nearby Bayside Marina.  If you don't have a boat, you can book a fishing charter with your choice of licensed captains, who are ready to take you out for an experience that you won't soon forget!

Another local attraction are the beaches. The closest beach is Mashes Sands in Panacea (less than 1 mi.). It offers a beautiful, small beach located on the bay. It is pretty shallow for a good ways out, offering safety for small children and a great opportunity for shelling. Next are the gorgeous beaches at Alligator Point and Bald Point State Park (about 7 mi.), where you can enjoy sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bird watching and nature study. Within a few minutes drive are two of the nation's TOP TEN RATED BEACHES, St. George Island State Park, near Apalachicola, and St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, near Port St. Joe. Both parks contain miles of undeveloped beaches, emerald waters and white sugar sand.

Other nearby attractions include St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge, an unspoiled barrier island just offshore from the mouth of the Apalachicola River in the Gulf of Mexico. The island is a haven for endangered and threatened species, including bald eagles, wood storks, sea turtles, indigo snakes, gopher tortoises and red wolves. It is accessible only by boat. A favorite is Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the world's deepest freshwater springs, with swimming, nature boat rides and glass bottom boats. Wakulla Springs is known as the shooting location for several Tarzan movies, Creature from the Black Lagoon and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of wading birds, water fowl, fish, turtles, and snakes, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. Kids love diving from the diving platform into the refreshing spring waters, which remain a constant 68-70 degrees year round. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge features the St. Marks Lighthouse, and offers a habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife. (Bald eagles are often spotted here - so keep your eyes peeled!)

So the guys want to go fishing and you ladies don't ...NO PROBLEM! While they are catching speckled trout, Spanish mackerel, grouper, redfish (the list goes on), you can visit historic Apalachicola.  Once a bustling sea port, this quaint village of about 5,000 still boasts a large shrimp fleet, a downtown shopping area with antiques, boutiques and local art, and beautiful restored houses from a bygone era. Once the third largest cotton port along the Gulf Coast, the Apalachicola/East Point area still harvests and processes 90% of the oysters consumed in Florida. Locally caught seafood is prepared in the many fine restaurants located in Panacea, Carrabelle, and Apalachicola. If you prefer to cook it yourself, fresh shrimp, oysters, and the catch of the day are available in the seafood houses dotted along the coast from Panacea to Port St. Joe.

Driving Directions: Take US 319 south from Tallahassee. At the intersection with US 98 take a right. Follow US 98 until you come to the Ochlockonee Bay Bridge. Turn left just before the bridge onto Mashes Sands Road.  Georges Lighthouse Point is on the right, beside Angelo's Seafood Restaurant. We are Unit 9D.

Sorry!  We do not accept primary renters under the age of 25.
