Ready for an adventure? If you are looking for a relaxing vacation at the beach tucked away in a quaint, safe, and friendly neighborhood where you might see next to no one -- no hotels, no hustle and bustle, and might even have the beach to yourself -- then you've found it!
Our uniquely designed geodesic dome cottage with 2 bedrooms on the main floor + loft / 3rd bedroom and 2nd full bath puts a little adventure into your trip with its adorable character. It's small, but really cozy with soaring ceilings and includes the amenities you'd expect, like air conditioning, dishwasher, laundry, flat panel smart TVs, and just about everything else you'll need to enjoy your stay. This is a great place for a romantic getaway or a quiet, relaxing vacation with family or friends.
The master bedroom includes a queen bed with new medium to medium firm / plush mattress and features a private balcony, while the guest bedroom includes a second queen bed with firm mattress that is covered with a comfy memory foam topper (remove if you prefer a firm mattress).
The loft bedroom includes two twin beds and is accessed by a 10' ladder. The 2nd full bath is in the loft upstairs with tub / shower combo, toilet, and single vanity. No one under the age of 13 is allowed in the loft.
You'll have 200 Mbps high speed Internet with free wifi readily available. Our smart TVs are easy to use on the Roku platform, including Netflix, and Youtube TV provided (80+ channels of cable TV content) but feel free to login to your own accounts. In addition to the great room TV, you'll also find small smart flat panel TVs in all bedrooms.
Have coffee on the screened front porch and enjoy the Gulf view, or take a five minute stroll down to the beach and relax in the ocean breeze, or ask us about using our golf cart and be there in under a minute when booking 30+ days. Watch the dolphins play, hunt for shells and look for Starfish, or search for some of the many other cool sea creatures you might encounter . . . or take your fishing pole down to Hannon's Dock for some great fishing! When you are finished exploring the beach, head back to relax or to cook up your fresh catch of the day.
After hitting the new, large outdoor shower (not yet properly represented in photos) to rinse the sand from your feet, you'll find that our open kitchen has all of the basic amenities you might need, including a cook top stove and a small countertop oven and microwave, various dishes, pots, pans, blender, etc. There is a K-cup style coffee machine with complimentary K cups and a traditional brew pot as well. While we do not have a dining table, you'll find bar-seating for four quite ample. Our two large sofas are ultra-comfy and roomy if you prefer to eat in front of the TV like many of us do.
New and improved large gravel driveway has been recently added (not yet shown in photos).
There's no need to pack a ton of clothes! Travel light and easy. The cottage includes a washer and dryer (but note that our well water has minerals and may discolor your whites / lights, and it tends to bond with sunscreen). It is also equipped with a central heat and air unit for your comfort with a large vent serving the open design of the home. We also have ceiling fans in the bedrooms and provide box fans to aid in air circulation (or white noise) while sleeping, as may be desired . . . or on a cool night just open the windows and sliding glass doors and fall asleep to the sounds of nature. For winter months, there are portable oil heaters in the closets for supplemental heat if you like it toasty in the bedrooms.
The photos accurately represent our home, except as noted above, so please take some time and look through them. Our rental agreement requires a liability waiver due to liability and added risk of the loft access via the 10' ladder (sorry, but no children under age 13 are allowed in the unit due to risk of the loft / no exceptions). You are welcome to bring your golf cart, but our beach does NOT allow golf carts directly on the beach, however. Otherwise, we are just a short 4 minute walk to the sand and private dock. Our beach has approximately 4 miles of sugary white sand lined with pines and homes, very few people, calm waters, and wonderful tidal pools at low tide.
Our home is located just an hour south of Tallahassee off the beaten path, but is within 20-30 minutes of great seafood and everything you may need while in the area. Be sure to check out Bald Point State Park, Tate's Hell, or even charter a fishing trip nearby at Panacea or Carrabelle. If you are up for a 45 minute drive, then you will love Apalachicola for an afternoon of shopping or St. George Island for riding the waves in the greenish-clear surf. We are also just an hour from Tallahassee for anything and everything you might want. But please let us be clear, if you are looking for the touristy areas with hotels, shopping, and crowds right out your back door then this is NOT for you!
You must be 25 or older to rent. No pets / no smoking. We do not allow parties, weddings, or other events or gatherings. This is a quiet neighborhood of folks that look out for each other, but a fantastic place to come and unwind, relax, and find some solitude while enjoying the coast and its natural beauty with old Florida at its best. We require a minimum of $200 refundable damage deposit for all rentals not utilizing VRBO's paid rental insurance program.
Age restrictions apply. You must be 25 to rent. Sorry, but due to the added risk of injury or death with the 10' ladder and loft, children under the age of 13 are not permitted in the rental unit without express written consent of the owner. We rarely ever make exceptions. No one under the age of 13 is permitted to access the loft or ladder.
Please contact us with any questions prior to booking.
