vacation rental description

Only minutes away from world-class 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). This 1200 sq. ft. modular home is located in gated Paradise Village of Shell Point, which has a community swimming pool and a public beach within walking distance. Right out our back door is a boat dock located on a deep-water canal, which is convenient to a nearby boat launch.  Sorry - the boat pictured does not go with the rental and we do not rent out our boat.  Since this is our weekend getaway from the Tallahassee grind, we normally keep our boat docked at the house, but there should be room at the dock for another adverage sized boat.

The living quarters features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, family room, laundry room, fully equipped kitchen and screened-in porch.  The family room is an open area, which consists of the den, kitchen and a futon/seating area.  The den area is furnished with comfortable furniture (2 sofas, with recliners on each end = 4 recliners) and is equipped with a 27 in. TV, stereo and various games.  The kitchen has everything you need to whip up your favorite meal, while your family and friends gather around the bar (which has seating for 7).  Included in this open space is a separate seating area with a futon for additional sleeping. This entire area has a beautiful view of the canal and is adjacent to the screened in porch. The porch offers additional dining with a table and 8 chairs, a child’s table, and another comfortable seating area.  Just kick back and enjoy your own happy hour, while viewing the local wildlife from this relaxing setting.  On any givien day, you may see blue herons, pelicans or egrets ... or fish jumping and feeding ... or dolphins cruising for their dinner. This is truly the real Florida! Our accommodations will sleep 8 to 10 people comfortably, and consist of 2 queen size beds, 1 double bunk (double on bottom/twin on top), 1 twin bed and 1 futon in the den.  Perfect for a family or a few guys who just want to fish.

Shell Point is a small, quiet community located in Wakulla County, one of Florida's best-kept secrets and part of Florida's forgotten coast. Besides offering the best flats fishing anywhere, it's ideal for sightseeing and photography. Wakulla Springs State Park, one of the largest fresh water springs in the world, is only 10 minutes away. Wakulla Springs was the site for filming the early Tarzan movies, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Airport 77. From the river boat and glass bottom boat tours, you can see alligators, many species of water fowl, fish, turtles, snakes, and deer, in and among the crystal clear waters emerging from the depth of the springs. They also have a swimming area, with a diving platform. The St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (10 minutes away), which features the St. Marks Lighthouse, offers a habitat for all kinds of Florida wildlife. (Bald eagles have been spotted here and at Spring Creek - so keep your eyes peeled!) For a close-up, hands-on examination of marine life, you can check out the Gulf Specimen Marine Lab in Panacea, which is 20 minutes away. Also, the Tallahassee Museum of History and Natural Science is about 30 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 Country Club is a beautiful public golf course located on Hwy. 98 in Medart (less than 10 minute drive). For the tennis buff, there are 6 lighted tennis courts across the street (from the golf course) at Wakulla High School. For the fisherman, the fishing is as good as it gets and there is an assortment of USCG licensed captains that will be more than willing to book a charter and take you out into the bay for a fishing experience that you will never forget. Shell Point is a great place for windsurfing and hosts several Regattas each year. For the beach enthusiast, nearby beaches include St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park and St. George's Island, which are regularly voted into the top ten beaches in the world (an hour to an hour and a half drive). Shell Point Beach is about a half block from "Happy Ours". It is a very, very 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 two beaches mentioned earlier, but it is very convenient and a great place to kick back and enjoy the abundant wildlife in and surrounding the bay, along with breathtaking sunsets. For those who enjoy great seafood, Angelo's in Panacea (20 minutes away) is one of the finest renowned seafood restaurants anywhere - located right on the water. Nearby Spring Creek Restaurant (less than 10 minutes away) also boasts delicious seafood, including soft shell crab, along with a casual down-home atmosphere. If you decide to rent with us, we will send you a list of all of the nearby restaurants, along with our personal rating on each one.

Shell Point is located between St. Marks and Panacea, and is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee (Florida's capital). Tallahassee has all of the conveniences of a big city - malls, restaurants, museums, parks, airport - and is well known for being the home of Florida State University (FSU) and Florida A&M University (FAMU). If you are interested in fishing (trout, Spanish mackerel, redfish, tarpon, cobia, flounder, grouper, black bass ... it's saltwater fishing, so the list goes on), boating, or ... if you just want to escape to a relaxing, laid back paradise; yet, be able to venture into the city on a whim, this is the perfect location for you.

Sorry, we do not accept renters under the age of 25.
