    About this property

    "legasea," Old Florida Beachfront Charm With Two Screen Porches, Sleeps 7

    From the moment you walk into Legasea at St. Teresa, you’ll feel the weight of the world lifted off your shoulders. Located far from crowds and commercialization between the small fishing towns of Carrabelle and Panacea, this is a haven to truly get away from it all. Whether upstairs or downstairs, you'll sigh when you open the wide French doors to truly awe-inspiring views. The entire house is decorated with a soothing color palette and charming eclectic style. This beachfront duplex home is right on the Gulf of Mexico, although on Google Maps it appears farther back away from the water. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and sleeps 7. You can choose to dine at the spacious kitchen counter, at the table by the windows opening to the breeze, or climb the stairs to the upper screen porch to enjoy the spectacular views with your dinner. You can watch the sun rise from the king sized bed in the master bedroom, which connects to the screen porch and to the master bathroom. The second upstairs bedroom contains a queen bed and a set of twin bunkbeds. The third bedroom, which contains a queen size bed, is downstairs next to the second bathroom. Beautifully decorated in ocean colors, both bedrooms enjoy gorgeous natural light. Surrounded by beauty such as this, you’ll want to spend time just sitting and staring and taking it all in. Or lie in the hammock and gaze up at the tall pines as the gentle lap of the waves lulls you into a much-needed nap. Go a few more steps to your own beach deck with chairs and umbrella. Collect shells and explore living sea animals as you stroll the beach from Grassy Point to Stingray Point. Go fishing or cast a net off the dock or scoop up some blue crabs. Use the two kayaks provided to explore the area by water. If you find you can’t entirely tear yourself away from the TV, the family room provides a Smart TV and DVD player with a variety of family movies. There is an additional TV and DVD player upstairs in the master bedroom. Internet is provided, although it may be slow on the Florida Panhandle. St. Teresa is right on the Gulf of Mexico, but is protected by a sandspit which extends from Alligator Point, so the waves are always gentle. This makes it perfect for swimming, fishing, kayaking, and beachcombing. On a natural beach on the “Forgotten Coast” of the Gulf of Mexico far from crowds and commercialization, the area around St. Teresa provides one of the most diverse eco-systems in North America. You may see dolphins, manatees, the exotic local white squirrels, and even the occasional Florida black bear, not to mention every kind of shore bird you can imagine. Legasea is located within the Bay North gated community of St. Teresa, which contains its own swimming pool, tennis courts, and plenty of open space in which the kids can play if they tire of the beach. The children’s laughter as they play outside all day will take you back to when this was “Camp Weed,” a summer church camp. When you visit Legasea, you’ll know that you’re in a truly unique place, and will understand why St. Teresa has been the most beloved spot in the world for generations of families.

    Beautiful, warming and cozy immaculate beach house!

    This was our first family vacation and we definitely picked the best place possible! This beach house was unbelievable! It was so beautiful and amazing. My daughter actually said the beach house was the best part of the vacation! She played so much inside the house! It was so clean, neat and decorated beautifully! Not to mention the beach is such close walking distance you’re there before you know it! We didn’t even need our beach tote. Our vacation was cut short due to my husbands job but we definitely plan on going back! We have such great memories from this place and hopefully can go back really soon! We definitely recommend this place if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful and beautiful vacation!

    5/5 Excellent

    Beautiful house on the beach! Very relaxing stay with great fishing.

    We loved the open area downstairs and spent many hours in the rockers on the screened porches. Everything we could want was provided, from kayaks to games.

    5/5 Excellent

    This vacation home is beautiful!

    This was our first visit to Legasea, but it won’t be our last! We did get run out early by hurricane “Michael”, which was disappointing, as the setting of Legasea was perfect! Great fishing and beautiful sunsets! The community of people there were very friendly and we learned a lot about St Teresa from the locals. The home was very clean and provided an abundance of anything you could possibly need! Quiet setting and secluded beach is the best! Do to our having to leave early, we didn’t get to try out the kayaks, but looking forward to it on our next visit! I’ve told my entire family about Legasea and hoping we can all come back together and share this remarkable vacation spot! Good spots are hard to find, we’ve found ours! If the vacation spot wasn’t enough, Caroline, the owner, was absolutely a delight to work with before, during and after our stay! She took care of us, was very professional and extremely friendly! Thanks Caroline for this beautiful vacation spot that will definitely become one of our favorites!

    Beautiful home!

    Wonderful quiet location and gorgeous accommodations!

    5/5 Excellent

    It is a little piece of heaven!

    One of the best vacations ever! Such a lovely home & the views were spectacular. I've been home a few days & ready to go back! If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful non commercialized beach trip this is it! Small communities with local restaurants! Close to St. George Island. The house is absolutely breath taking, & only steps from the beach. I love to look for shells, & was amazed at all the shells on the beach. Found several horse shoe crabs. A pier to go fishing from, great place to go crabbing! Hope to go back soon!
