'Get Your Bathing Suit On' is a custom-built, Key West-style beach home that has RELAX written all over it! This first-tier home is less than 100 steps to the beautiful, white, sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The gorgeous Gulf beach views can be appreciated from the living room, dining room, the loft, the porch, the deck and the kitchen of our home. With its 3 separate sleeping areas,with a total of four baths,screened porch and sundeck, our whimsically-decorated home can easily accommodate a family or small group... but is still small enough for couples on a romantic getaway!!
For your convenience we have a tandem Kayak, A Stand-Up Paddle board and a Tommy Bahama Beach Cart with Umbrella to easily tote all your things to the beach. We maintain a supply of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, a large cooler, kids fishing poles, rafts, small crab nets, crab bucket and a crab trap, boogie boards, wave boards,, shovels, pails, large outdoor grill, grilling utensils, tennis rackets and beach toys! If you decide to stay indoors for a while we also have a cupboard full of board games and puzzles to keep you entertained.
We have three to four beach cruisers. They seem to require pretty constant maintenance so we can never absolutely guarantee that every guests will have use of the bicycles. In general, at least two of the bicycles work but last year there was a 2 week period where all for bikes had one issue or another (flat tire, chain off, crashed front wheel, loose handle bars...) Our property manager will not maintain the bicycles so we do this ourselves but we do not live close enough to come weekly . We do stock extra tools and extra inner tubes , etc, but not everyone is knowledgeable in bike maintenance or wishes, on vacation to do bike repair. All this is to say that you will likely have bicycles to use but we don't guarantee it.
We also try to simplify what you need to pack by providing all your linens and bath towels, as well as a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and detergents. Please note that the linen service DOES NOT INCLUDE BEACH TOWELS so please bring those from home.
There is plenty do do but if you decide to just relax, you will have a fantastic time enjoying the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch and if you decide to stroll along our quiet and award winning beaches, you can find a variety of seashells to collect, watch the dolphins swimming by, see the mullet jumping in the bayou or catch the eagles and osprey scouting for prey. There is also an amazing star gazing view from the top deck. Our area is very undeveloped so the night sky is not obscured by light from street lamps or business lights.
Of course, swimming, sunbathing, fishing in the surf or crabbing in the bayou are always a lot of fun.
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!
Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway. Scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies are a favorite for dinner or can be frozen to be enjoyed later when you return home. In addition, nearby Indian Pass is famous for its delicious oysters!
