Description of the Dog Island vacation home rental
Welcome to our beach house. Dog Island is located just off the coast of Carrabelle, FL and is like no other place in Florida. Get ready to relax and enjoy the beach and nature. The house is directly on the beach and has a nature preserve on two sides of the property so it is both beautiful and private. The house is a short walk from the Marina or the Airstrip, plus we have a Ford Ranger truck for you to use between the house and these points.
Dog Island is a unique experience. There are no roads or bridges connecting the island to the mainland. Everything comes over by boat or airplane. Development has been limited to private residences and there is no commercial activity on the island. This is a place to relax, renew, and spend quality time with family and friends.
The house has a covered porch that wraps around the home. The back side (facing the road) is screened and overlooks the harbor, bay, and nature preserve. There is an outdoor kitchen in the screened area with a Big Green Egg (grill / smoker) to cook all your favorite foods. There is a large deck facing the ocean. The porch has Adirondack rockers and chairs on all sides. There is parking and storage under the house.
The house has three bedrooms, but sleeps like a four bedroom home:
- Master bedroom has a King bed
- Bedroom #2 has a Queen bed
- Bedroom #3 has a Double and a Queen bed
- Living room has a double Futon that folds out
Bed linens, bath towels, and beach towels
Fully furnished kitchen with plates, utensils, and cookware
Coffee maker and a Keurig machine
Big Green Egg (grill / smoker) with charcoal furnished
First Aid Kit
Beach toys / chairs
Patio tables and chairs
Large screen flat panel TV with satellite, Blue-Ray DVD, and VCR
Refrigerator, microware, blender, toaster oven
Professional grade water filtration system
What to Bring:
Food, what you plan to eat. We keep basic items there. The ferry boat capt. (Rusty) can bring you supplies upon request if you run low. We like to have fresh seafood sent over, just call Capt. Rusty (we will provide his number) and he will meet you at the marina with what you need.
How to Get There:
Most people arrange a private charter from Carrabelle for a small fee. There are several operators to choose from and we will be glad to provide the names and numbers on request. Other people use the scheduled ferry service from Carrabelle and there is also a 2700 x 120 foot airstrip on the island for pilots to utilize.
Check in / Out:
The house is usually rented Saturday to Saturday. Check in is at 2 PM and check out is at 11 a.m. The house will need to be cleaned and linens washed and replaced prior to check out. We keep the house very clean. There is no maid service on the Island, so you will need to leave the house the way you found it, clean.
The house sits on some of the highest sand dunes in Florida. It is critical that you please keep children (and everyone else too) off the sand dunes. These are very fragile and island rules strictly prohibit walking or playing on the dunes.
Renting is generally discouraged on the island so it is extremely important that all guests abide by all island and house rules which include: obeying the 20 mph speed limit in our truck and driving only to and from the house, lights-out for turtles May-September, recycle glass and plastic, no fires, no fireworks, no trespassing on Dog Island Yacht Club docks or parking area. Absolutely NO pets or smoking at the house.
Take a look around the site and let us know if you have any questions.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in Dog Island, Florida
Solitude and Peace
June 17, 2014
Old Florida charm directly on the beach. Loved every moment of our stay here. The house is fully furnished with everything you need plus more (beach chairs, etc). The owner is very attentive and extremely polite. But the best part was the solitude and peace of no commercialization. Nature abounds. Great surf fishing. Can't wait to return.

We stayed a week at the beach house last year. My son and his family were there also. There were 9 of us there, including 5 children. We slept very comfortable and had plenty of room. The house is fully equipped and everything was very clean and maintained. The view from the porches are incredible, breath taking. The beach is like no other typical beach. Sea shells are large and plentiful, and the surf is great. We saw lots of dolphins, fished a lot and just enjoyed the beauty of the place. There is always a wonderful breeze. I have Verizon phone service and it worked there. We had taken enough food so we had no problems. I made a menu and bought accordingly. There is a grocery store in the area where you board the ferry, so I picked up a few last thought of items there. The boat ride over was fun for the kids too. They loved it and would jump at a chance to go back. Mr. & Mrs. Fleming go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. It is a wonderful experience. Thanks to the Fleming family for a wonderful experience.
