Most rentals offer you the basics, but, we believe, it is all in the details. Just pack your suitcase and your toiletries. Everything else you will need is provided. Our part of Florida is made up of a unique combination of pines and palms growing in very sandy soil. A bald eagle pair nest each year just down the road. Wildlife abounds because this area is still only lightly developed; yet, all the conveniences are relatively close at hand. There are some incredible restaurants that serve only the freshest of fish. Even non-seafood eaters learn to enjoy this area�s bounty from the sea. About 10 miles to the East is Appalachicola which is famous throughout the world for its oysters. Try some lightly steamed or raw, they are incredible. Scallops and shrimp are harvested from the Gulf daily. You just can�t get any fresher. We provide you with a list of local restaurants along with a very candid critique of our dining experiences there. There just isn�t a better view of the Gulf anywhere. A 180 degree sweep of the horizon from the Gulf-view balcony encompasses several miles of deserted white-sand beaches gently yielding to the blue Gulf waters. Dolphins lazily swim by while gulls, cranes and pelicans search for fish. Shrimp trawlers, boats and sailboats can sometimes be seen in the far distance. Fluffy white clouds stream slowly by against a deep-blue sky. Many times bright lightening and dark thunder clouds can be seen in the distance while the sun shines brightly where you sit. Dusk brings incredible sunsets. And, at night, you just can�t believe the number of stars that can be seen, even the milky way is visible. Our extra-wide ramp takes you to the hard sand of the beach. Wading and swimming from our beach is very pleasant. The sandy bottom gently slopes for hundreds of feet before you can no longer touch bottom. Waves vary from small to giant depending upon the wind and weather. You can become a skilled sandcastle builder if you are so inclined. Occasionally a turtle (very protected) will build her nest along our beach and baby turtles can be seen scampering toward a full moon after hatching. You can place an order for groceries with our staff for the cost of the groceries and a small handling charge. Your pantry will then be stocked and waiting for your arrival. Daily maid service is available for an additional $35 a day. Daily service includes sweeping floors, making beds, hanging towels, garbage removal, wipe kitchen counters and a quick dusting. For an additional charge, your dishes, pots and pans can be cleaned and stored away. Laundry service is available although you have a super- capacity washer with 9 wash cycles and a double rinse cycle to insure that your clothers come out clean and soap free, super- capacity dryer with six drying cycles, iron and board in the laundry room just off the kitchen. To get you started, we have supplied Tide, Bleach, Dishwasher Soap, Regular and Decalf Coffee, Coffee Creamer, Sugar, Salt and Pepper. Any other reasonable service may be available for an additional charge. Just let us know what you require and we will do our best to provide it. Although you will probably not have time to watch TV, we do provide 150-Channel cable in each bedroom and great room. Bedroom wall- mounted flat-screen TVs have built in DVD players. WIFI internet access is provided along with local calling phone service. The house is designed with a central hall or greatroom that faces the Gulf. A full wall of windows affords stunning Gulf views from the kitchen, dining room and living room. Italian porcelain tile floors throughout. Granite covered kitchen counter tops sparkle in deep midnight blue with pearl shimmers. Brushed nickel pendant lights illuminate the peninsula. Pure white kitchen cabinets with brushed nickel pulls are roomy and include a butlers pantry and built in garbage container. Disposal, dishwasher, side-by-side refridgerator with child lock and a GE water filtration system that delivers clean great-tasting water and ice through the in-the-door light touch dispenser. Self-cleaning super-large electric range and oven . Over-the-stove microwave has an outside venting system that removes smoke and steam from the cooktop. Kitchens are fully equipped with top-of-the-line products. � KitchenAid Gourmet Essentials 10-Piece Brushed Stainless- Steel Cookware Set � KitchenAid Gourmet Essentails Hard Anodized Nonstick 8-Inch Open French Skillet � Calphalon Nonstick 6-Piece Bakeware Set � Henckels International Everedge 13-Piece Knife Set with Cheese Knife � Cuisinart CHM-3 Electronic Hand Mixer 3 Speed, Blender � Measuring cups, liquid and dry. Measuring spoons. Cullindar. Various mixing bowls and utensils. Pannini/griddle and much more. The dining room is located in the center of the central hall. Seating for 6 is provided at the round wood and glass table surrounded by intricately carved dining chairs. An additional three dolphin seats are near by at the granite coverd kitchen peninsula. A sideboard opens into a table

Fabulously Fantastic!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 4 of us and we rented the 2nd floor for the week. We have traveled all over, expecially in the Caribbean and Central America and this was one of our favorite vacations. The house was incredible, as were the furnishings and location. Quite and serene. Gorgeous views of the water and beach. The mule that's provided allowed us to traverse up and down the beach hunting for the huge seashells (that were plentiful and like we have never seen before) and driftwood, as well as snorkelling. The sea life in the water was incredible, also. The ammenities at the house were superb. The pool area makes a great area for lunch or dinner and no flies or bugs. Fantastic vacation. One we will remember for our lifetime! Thanks Ron and Sharon....we had a fabulous time! Your place is amazing!

How about relaxing, reading and snoozing. What a novel idea for a

vacation! Otherwise there is beach fishing, charter fishing, sea-

doo rental, para-sailing over the Gulf, horseback riding on the

beach, scalloping, taking an island ferry to St. Vincent's National

Wildlife Refuge for biking, hiking and bird watching. Visit St

Joseph Peninsula State Park. Turtle watching, horseback riding and

all the other things one would expect to do on a Florida vacaton.
