About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 10

Vacation Rental Description:

Our custom built spacious home over looks a beautiful deep

water canal and is located in the Paradise Village Community at Shell Point, Florida. It is only 30 miles south of Tallahassee, Fl.

The house sits on an angle on the property to allow for an excellent view of the boats coming and going. Most of the boat traffic is fishermen and some are joy riders just looking. There is always a friendly wave. The view of the canal can be enjoyed from the Florida room with the comforts of indoor air conditioning, the screened in back patio or from the swing hanging from the big oak tree in the back yard. Channel markers start at the end of the canal and guide boats safely into the beautiful Gulf of Mexico just around the bend.

The Community is gated and a code will be provided. Within walking distance of the house is the private community pool which overlooks another canal, tennis courts, and the public beach. A new extra large private dock is right outside the backdoor of the house as well as a stainless steel fish cleaning station with running water. A private bench sits on the dock. The boat ramp is located nearby. If you are an avid fisherman you will need ice...this home rents with a very large capacity ice machine. You will not be buying ice...just bring plenty of ice chests. The carport is shaded and we would be happy to share the abundant of fruit that we harvest each year from our Ruby Red grapefruit, limes, figs, & pomegranate trees.

Our personal vacation home offers 2000 sq. ft. of open living space, featuring hardwood floors in living area,3 bedrooms, 2 baths, large family room, huge Florida room with windows covering the entire room overlooking the canal, 3 dining areas (4 including the table on the patio), spacious kitchen with island, washer and dryer nook, large 32' TV in family room and 20' TV in the master bedroom.

Cable TV and wireless Internet service throughout. Master bedroom has two queen beds, Palm tree room has two double beds, Front Blue room has bunk beds. Two of the couches are pull out beds. Linens are provided for all.

About Tiann Taylor or Victor Matthews

After the death of my brother our family wanted to find a vacation spot where we could all get together, cook-eat, relax, enjoy water sports and just be together. We found this special home with a history, furnished it with a lot family belongings and have enjoyed it ever since. We have made it into a comfortable home with a lot of extras that you will not find in most rentals.

Tiann Taylor or Victor Matthews purchased this house in 2003

Why Tiann Taylor or Victor Matthews chose Florida Panhandle

The house is large and spacious. Four tables with sitting areas. Large kitchen with island for food display and preparing. New Sealy mattresses on all of the beds. Hardwood floors and carpet in the bedrooms.

What makes this house unique

Free ICE for our fishermen! Wonderful relaxing swing under a big oak shade tree that over-looks the canal. Fish cleaning station in the shade and a screened in porch with a fan for comfort that also over looks the canal which about 50 away from the back door.
