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 + optional loft / 3rd bedroom and 2nd bath access 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 comfy foam topper and features a private balcony, while the guest bedroom includes a twin trundle bed, with the ability to pull out and pop up a 2nd twin to comfortably sleep 2 people in that room.
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 outdoor shower 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.
There's no need to pack a ton of clothes! Travel light and easy. The cottage includes a washer and dryer. 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, so please take some time and look through them. Rental of the third bedroom and second bath require a liability waiver due to being in the loft, else the loft will NOT be included in the rental (sorry, but no children under age 8 are allowed in the loft / no exceptions). Our golf cart may be available for rent under certain circumstances with a liability waiver (it is reserved primarily for our family / friends due to the nature of risks involved, but our guests booking 30+ night stays will also be considered, so just ask). You are certainly welcome to bring your own cart. Our beach does NOT allow golf carts directly on the beach, however.
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. 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.
Please contact us with any questions prior to booking.
