~~Check out our newest addition, Bayou Retreat, a beautiful complement to our sister property Coastal Retreat (VRBO / homeaway property number 766039).~~ Here you'll find privacy, peace, and beauty at your own vacation acre tucked into a gorgeous setting just off the Carrabelle River, with great views of Postum Bayou and St. George Sound . Set among quietly rustling pines, Bayou Retreat is far removed from highway bustle and noisy crowds. Fish off your private dock, watch the sun set, and enjoy the sweeping views across the bay while you grill your catch on our spacious deck. Bald eagles, ospreys, and Florida’s beautiful wading birds will delight the nature lover in you. From the airy great room, look out across the water while you dine, and from the deck enjoy brilliant star-gazing at night. The two spacious bedrooms, each with its own roomy bath, feature waterfront views. The kitchen provides plenty of room to cook the shrimp and scallops you buy right off the boat in Carrabelle’s renowned seafood markets. Want to shell and swim? It's just over one mile to Carrabelle’s lovely municipal sands. Bringing your own boat? Five minutes from the private dock takes you into the Bay, where you can fish, cruise with dolphins and sting rays, and watch pelicans and bald eagles swoop out of the sky. In less than fifteen minutes reach the pristine jewel of Dog Island, where you can shell and sunbathe far from the crowds. Ready for a night out? Conveniently located 15 minutes from St. George Island Bridge, and 25 minutes from Apalachicola, our home welcomes you to a wealth of shopping, dining, and exploring.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, peaceful and private property!

Nikola has a beauty, here. The property is well situated in Carrabelle, a quiet nice little town. When we got there the AC was down, but Nikola immediately took care of things and arranged alternate options and had things fixed right away.She is great to work with. We caught fish off the dock, ate great local seafood and the public beach and everything you need is nearby. Visit St. George Island for sure. I would highly recommend this property for couples or a family. But get yourself a Thermacell for the skeeters. We had two and they were no problem for us.

House

We really enjoyed our stay... just too many biting bugs this time of the year.

Incredible Trip

The view was wonderful. The location was perfect! Just enough privacy but still close enough to places to eat and beautiful beaches.

Old Florida - Rest and Relax

Our family really enjoyed this property. The house was very clean and the open concept layout was very accommodating for our family's needs. The views from the family room and both bedrooms were amazing! The new deck was so nice but we were unable to enjoy it due to the yellow flies. You can't fight nature. But, a screened porch would have made it PERFECT! We took a boat ride to Dog Island for sight seeing and fishing several times. The dock is awaiting some repairs from the storm but it was safe for use. My son proposed at the end of the dock while we were there and the pictures were great! We took a few small road trips to visit the surrounding small towns. To the east was St. Mark's lighthouse and nature reserve in Crawfordville. We had lunch at Quzts' Too Oyster Bar & Grill on Highway 98. The food was delicious and our server was so nice. To the west we visited St. George Island and Apalachicola. This trip was like visiting "old" Florida. You can't beat small towns and southern hospitality!
