Shell Point is quiet coastal neighborhood situated on Apalchee Bay of the forgotten coast of Florida. Our home has a beautiful gulf view and is situated on a canal. It has a floating dock suitable for two 20+ ft bay boats.
Our main living area has two giant picture windows, that can be opened to the ocean breeze.
The house features custom wood work throughout.
Outside seating areas include a large upstairs screened patio and a rear balcony with a porch swing.
There is a gas grill on site. Boat trailer parking on site.
The owner also offers kayak tours of nearby spring rivers, guided kayak fishing, kayak rentals, and inshore charter fishing for groups up to 3.
The lower unit (1 king bedroom/1 bath) of the house is separated by a locked stairway and can be rented as well. Contact the owner for more information. The only shared space is the laundry room.
The public beach access and boat ramp are just a few minutes walk away.
My family of four had a wonderful time in this cottage. We were able to dock our boat out back and bring along our dog. The upstairs cottage was very cute and has ocean views out of the front and canal views behind. We will definitely come back to stay again soon.
I must say, initially I was a bit skeptical because the posting does not tell you that you are only renting the upstairs. The downstairs is a separate rental. BUT we had a good time. You can hear the downstairs folks a bit but I have 2 toddlers so I'm sure they heard us too haha. The house was very clean and I was happy about that. There are great views from the living and the master bedroom. I think my favorite part was the small patio off of the master bedroom that has a swing. Great spot for your morning coffee. You will need to bring your own ice because there is no ice in the freezer and the jetted tub does not work. I brought bubble bath especially for that! All in all we had a good stay and would book it again!
Great place to stay with all the amenities of home. Scott was great to deal with and very responsive. We will definitely be back. Very close to the open water to go fishing and the floating dock was perfect for our boat. Boat ramp is nice and close with no issues getting in and out of the ramp. Check it out! Neighbors were all great too!
First off, Scott is an amazing host. He went above and beyond to make our trip extra special. We used his fishing guide service to go out fishing on Kayaks and get to know the area. The kids (two teenaged boys) had a fantastic time and caught fish. Days later Scott texted us some photos he took during the trip. The house is spacious and definitely sleeps 4 comfortably. Kitchen is huge and well equipped - with lots of extras you don't normally find with many rentals (like sharp knives ... cutting boards ... plenty of pots and pans ... a full spice rack ... plenty of dish and laundry detergent, etc). Check in and check out was quick and very easy. We had a few questions before we arrived and when we got there ... Scott was very quick to respond. Overall a great trip. We will definitely be back.
Easily accessible. Nice view. House was equipped, but still a work in progress, ie no furniture on the screened patio. Furniture was comfortable. There is a rental space downstairs which removes a small layer of solitude, ie you have to share the parking, you can sometimes hear people moving below you. It was not intrusive just noticeable. We’d happily stay again.
This house is even better than the pictures show. And the owner was wonderful to communicate with during the checkin process. Very comfortable, beautiful view, quiet and peaceful area of Florida.
The only regret I have is that we were unable to stay an entire week. The property is beautiful, especially the oceanfront view. We really enjoyed the ocean breeze through the 4 large sliding glass doors . Awesome place
Well maintained no issues We stayed for 3 nights Beach is awesome Will do it again PAtrick , home owner met us and he is extremely nice
