vacation rental description

This a clean, older, but well cared for comfortable home. Only minutes away from Speckled Trout fishing waters. Our comfortable 3 bedroom vacation home is located on the Apalachee Bay in Shell Point. Florida (30 miles south of Tallahassee, Florida). This 1100 sq ft home is located in a gated community with swimming pool and tennis court, and a public beach within walking distance. Right outside our back door is a boat dock located in a deep water canal. The canal is a home to wildlife that is often seen, such as Blue Herons, Pelicans and White Egrets that feed in the canal..or an occasional Dolphin that comes in to feed on bait fish, also you may see Manatees. Our home will sleep 6 (six) people comfortably, and consist of a queen size bed, a full size bed and two single captain beds. Perfect for a family or a few guys that just want to fish.

Shell point is a small community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best keep secrets and part of the forgotten coast. Also know as the Redneck Riviera. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the world's largest fresh water springs in the world and only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies as well as The Creature From The Black Lagoon, also Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours you can see a variety of species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, deer, alligators and on occasion even Manatees. The crystal clear water is so relaxing to gaze into. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. If you have never been swimming in Florida's fresh water springs this is a must, I assure you that you will sleep like a baby that night; the water is so cold and refreshing. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (only 10 minutes away), offers a habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife (Bald Eagles have been spotted here and at Spring Creek.. so keep your eyes open!). Visitors may glimpse endangered loggerhead sea turtles and West Indian manatees offshore by the ST MARKS LIGHTHOUSE. St Marks NWR's location also makes it an ideal host for the natural marvel of the migrating MONARCH BUTTERFLIES in October on their way to Mexico! You can check out the Gulf Specimen Lab in Panacea which is only 20 minutes away, they have a hands on-examination of marine life. The Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science is also about 20 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 golfer, Wildwood County Club is a beautiful public golf course located on Hwy 98 in Medart (less then 10 minute drive). Also for tennis buffs there are 6 (six) lighted tennis courts across the street (from the golf course) at the Wakulla High School. For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets. There is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than happy to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing trip that you will be bragging on for a long time. Shell Point is also a great place for windsurfing and kayaking. For the beach bums, nearby beaches include St. George's Island State Park, St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park, both of which are voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is a nice walk from "Get-A-Way". It is a 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 beaches mentioned earlier, but very convenient and a great place to sit out and sun bath or read a good book. Along with breathtaking sunsets. For those that enjoy great seafood, Angelo's in Panacea (20 minutes away) is one of the finest renowned seafood restaurtants' anywhere, dine right over the water. Nearby is Spring Creek Restaurant (less then 10 minutes away), and was featured in Southern Living magazine, they boast of delicious seafood including soft shell crab, along with a casual Down-Home Atmosphere.

Shell Point is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee, Florida (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has the big city conveniences, - Malls, Restaurants, Museums, Parks, Airport- as well as being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A & M University (FAMU). This is a fishermen's paradise, (trout, Spanish Mackerel, redfish, black bass, grouper, flounder, cobia .... the list goes on but that's saltwater fishing.. a boaters paradise or just to relax ... yet be able to go into to the big city and shop...This is a perfect location.
