If you are tired of the chaos at the busy beaches, try this spot on the remote St George Sound near Carrabelle. There aren’t many houses nearby, so you will be virtually alone way out here. Yet you are only 10 minutes away from all the action at Carrabelle, Eastpoint, Apalacacola or St George Island.
The house was originally built by some famous rich guy and he put all the high end finishes in, so the place is beautiful. The first floor is raised 22 ft above high tide and the second floor is 32 ft creating amazing views from every window. There are lots of decks and balconies. The tile everywhere is gorgeous. Huge windows let in all the light. A high semi open carport underneath is tall enough to put an RV and large boat or 4 vehicles under it.
There are 4 bedrooms. Three Kings, two bunk bed pairs plus a daybed with trundle in the loft another daybed with trundle in a king bedroom upstairs. sleeps 15. The king bedrooms have balconies.
At low tide, you can go pick up your breakfast laying in the tidal pools without ever dropping a hook. The fishing and shrimping off the sandbar is amazing. We have a limited supply of fishing stuff. Some poles, reels, a cast net, some traps — but these things can get pretty abused. If you want some serious equipment, you will need to bring it or pick something up at any of the many bait shops.
The little ones are sometimes intimidated by the big waves on ocean front houses. Let them know that the waves are small here. There are barrier islands off shore that knock them down and a big sand bar that smashes them before they get to shore. The waves break easy here; but you still get the ocean sound of the waves breaking. The shoreline is shallow for the first 100 yards, making for a giant water playground. At high tide the sea is a 1-4 foot deep wading pool, bigger than any swimming pool. No pool is needed to play in the water here! The kids will be endlessly fascinated by the sandy tidal pools during extremely low tides. If you want to experience fierce crashing waves, St George Island is just minutes away.
If you are into fitness, take the Kayak out and explore the coast. I was really surprised how easy it is to paddle a Kayak. If you somehow get bored with the water, hike the trails in the enormous state park across the street. If you have never been away from the city lights, be sure to look up on a moonless night to see more stars than you ever imagined. Bald eagles fly low overhead and will come play with your kite.
You have great views of the Gulf, St George Island and Dog Island across the Sound. Dolphins swim by regularly. It is one of the best fishing areas around. Many types of birds are in the area including eagles.
There are all types of activities: boating, fishing, and kayaking, swimming, hiking, site seeing, bird watching, etc.
