Description of the Shell Point vacation condo rental
Slip a way to a wonderful, unique place just south of Tallahassee on Florida's Forgotten Coast.
A 2 bedroom 2 bath house over an "Old Florida" style, 18 slip, Marina just 30 min south of the capital city of Tallahassee. The two large bedrooms sleep 4, and there is plenty of space in the living room for air mattresses. The kitchen is spacious and fully appointed for cooking your catch or making sandwiches for lunch on the covered deck.
The large covered deck is perfect for relaxing, and enjoying spectacular views of the quaint Florida coast. In fact, the views from the living room are just as engaging, as large windows and glass French doors bring the outside indoors, with air-conditioning!
Enjoy Direct TV and internet access, but bring your own DVRs, gaming consoles, and telephones.
Activities include boating, fishing, swimming, and kayaking. Bring your kayak to enjoy some of the best water exploration available in Florida. Or bring your boat down to fish, tube ski, scallop, or just motor around the pristine waters of Florida's Big Bend, including Gulf of Mexico access if you feel like an adventure.
Even though you don't have a boat to take advantage of the free slip, visiting Spring Creek Marina is still a unique and fun get away.
For swimming, take Cutoff Road ( a tree canopied, sandy lane) to Shell Point Beach, drive down Coastal 98 to Mashes Sands Beach, Bald Point Beach, Alligator Point, and St. George Island Beach, or spend a lazy day swimming at Wakulla Springs.
Rather be on the links? Travel five minutes down the road to Wildwood Resort to enjoy 18 holes, Pub and Grill, and a world-class pro shop.
With camera in hand, take Coastal 98 west to the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge
which occupies thousands of acres of pristine and environmentally-sensitive land along the Gulf of Mexico. The land preserved by the refuge includes some of the most historically significant in the state.
Or head up the road to Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park which sits atop a wondrous maze of underground caverns and is among the world's largest and deepest fresh-water springs. The 6,000 acre park overflows with wildlife that can be see daily on the riverboat ride through the protected corridor of the Wakulla River. It is a nature photographer's delight.
Or, journey a little over an hour west, on Coastal Hwy 98, to the quaint fishing village of Apalachicola, home to eclectic shopping and an array of restaurants and bistros featuring local seafood.
Speaking of local seafood, whether you catch it yourself or dine at the many restaurants from St. Marks to Apalachicola, eating from the bounty of the sea will be high on your agenda. We recommend Riverside Café, Spring Creek Restaurant, Mad Anthony's, Shrimp Trading Company, Posey's Up the Creek, Blue Parrot, and Boss Oyster, among many others. BTW, Spring Creek Restaurant will cook your catch, and you may have enough to feed yourself and friends every time you go out for a relaxing day of fishing at Spring Creek Marina.
What about the fall and winter? First of all, it's warm and sunny year round at the Spring Creek Marina. It's the perfect slip away for dull wintery days in the city, or the perfect spot to stay if you're headed to Tallahassee to catch the game (Go Noles). If you're interested in November to February monthly rates, contact us regarding booking at seasonal prices.

Area Information
Spring Creek Marina is on Florida's Forgotten Coast, a beautiful coastline that is noted for its natural celebration of Florida before commercialism .
Visit the St. Marks Lighthouse and National Wildlife Refuge, and the Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park for a walk through nature and history (bring your bathing suits to Wakulla Springs to enjoy the cold, clear waters of Florida's largest spring).
Or leave from the marina to enjoy fishing for red fish, speckled trout, mangrove snapper, sheep head, flounder at night, and mullet and crab (gotta have a net and a trap).
If you're a sailor, bring your boat and enjoy a day sail to Dog Island or St. George Island. BTW, St. George Island State Park boasts the prettiest stretch of white sand, Gulf beaches available.
Maybe you want to dress up--shorts,sandals, and some kind of shirt-and head an hour and a half to the west along Coastal 98 and take in
the old Florida village of Apalachicola. There is truly something for everybody in Apalachicola. Great restaurants and shopping abound
in the old Florida fishing village.
Of course, you can stay at the marina and experience a "Creeker" day:
Whether out early to fish, or waking later to watch the goings on from
the deck with coffee and/or mimosas, you'll enjoy the easy-going feel
of laid-back Florida. Take your boat out to explore Shell Point, Oyster Bay, St Marks, Panacea, and Bald Point. Stay closer to home to explore the Spring Creek river (where the gators stay), the springs as they bubble up in the bay, or fish, scallop, tube ski, or swim in the very cold, spring-fed Blue Hole (about 3 minutes from the marina).
When the day is nearing a close, sit with a cold libation, and enjoy the sunset at Spring Creek Marina. Then walk down the dirt road to the Spring Creek Restaurant and eat some of the finest local seafood to be found.
If you want to head back to the marina and enjoy the quiet peace of the Forgotten Coast, or if you want to drive over to the Riverside Cafe at St. Marks for live music and frivolity, then you will have done it! You will have had a great day and become a true "Creeker".
