vacation rental description

Kick back in the house, on the screened porch or on the sun deck to enjoy our million dollar view!!!  "On the Rocks" is located directly on the gulf.  Our yard is protected from the gulf by a line of large rocks, so you cannot access the water from the yard.  If you are on the deck, you are right over the water and have a bird's eye view of the beach and gulf.  The closest "official" beach access is only approximately 40 yards away.  Talk about convenient!

We offer approximately 1500 sq. ft. of living area, which includes 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and family room. If you are an early bird, you can enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the inspiring sunrises over the gulf, or just kick back any time of the day to enjoy the roar of the ocean and the gentle gulf breeze.  It just doesn't get any better!  The master bedroom has a queen-size bed, one guest room has a double bed and the other quest room has 2 twins. We also offer 2 folding twin-size cots.  These accommodations will sleep 6 to 8 people comfortably. Perfect for an average size group or family.

Alligator Point is located 45 miles south of Tallahassee along US Hwy. 98 in Franklin County. Franklin County proudly boasts that it has no stop lights, no fast food, and no movie theaters. If you are are looking for water parks, high rise condos, and go-cart rides, you have come to the wrong place. But if you want the REAL FLORIDA, with its abundant wildlife, great fishing and unspoiled, pristine beaches, you have arrived at your dream destination.

Come enjoy the beautiful beach at Alligator Point and Bald Point State Park, where you can enjoy sunbathing, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, bird watching and nature study. Alligator Point Beach is more narrow than the beaches at Panama City or Destin, but it goes on forever.

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 take in some of the finest deep sea or flats fishing in Florida; NO PROBLEM, LADIES! 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.

We can't wait for you to experience our personal paradise.  Leave you worries at home and head for "On the Rocks" for some beach therapy.

We Had a Blast! Will Be Back for Sure!

Review submitted: May 24, 2014   Date of arrival: April 6, 2014

My family and our dog stayed at On the Rocks for a week in April and had a blast. Upon arriving, the front of the house was not very impressive, but the inside was true to the pictures, clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It was a perfect location with the beach close by, lots of rocks for the kids to go hunting around during low tide, and a wonderful beach to comb for shells within a short walk. The water was not that great for swimming (pretty murky), but even for my kids (ages 5-10), they were happy enough to splash in the waves and make sand castles. The bonus was seeing fisherman pull in a sting ray, watching the dolphins swimming off shore, saving some starfish after a stormy night, collecting tons of shells and hanging out on the screen in porch on the rainy days. We'll be back for sure! Jasmine from Farmington Hills, MI.(Review shared from Guest Reviews on “Deb’s Forgotten Coast Rentals” Facebook page)
