This 2,200-square-foot home boasts 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an elevator, dock, outdoor shower and waterfront terrace. Fish off the dock or sail out to the open water in just 10 minutes. This home is perfect for those who are visiting or were displaced by the recent hurricane, as it was unaffected and offers a safe home base for your group!

    -- THE PROPERTY --

    Master Bedroom 1: King Bed | Master Bedroom 2: King Bed | Bedroom 3: King Bed | Living Room: Queen Sleeper Sofa

    Take the stairs or ride the elevator up to explore your coastal oasis, adorned with beach-themed decor and stunning wood trim throughout. The open living area is the ideal spot to escape the Florida heat with 2 plush sofas situated around a flat-screen cable/Smart TV.

    If you’d prefer to spend time outdoors, this home has no shortage of waterfront fun! Stroll down the boardwalk to fish off the private dock or take your boat out for a spin on the Carrabelle River. Rinse off the sea salt in the outdoor shower before heading up to the kitchen to fry up the catch of the day.

    Fully equipped, the kitchen offers everything you need to prepare beach snacks and fresh seafood dinners. Dine indoors at the 4-person eating counter or elegant dining table set for 6, or enjoy a meal al fresco on the waterfront terrace.

    Overlooking the river, this peaceful outdoor space will easily become your favorite spot on the property. Revel in the splendid scenery as the sun sets while the chef cooks up a zesty treat on the gas grill.

    Experience a life of luxury when you settle into either one of the 2 master bedrooms. A half wall of painted glass serves as the focal point of the first master bedroom, along with an expansive en-suite bathroom housing a walk-in shower, jetted tub and an impressive double vanity.

    The second master bedroom includes a king-sized bed, in-room sink and an en-suite bathroom with a handicap accessible shower. All 3 rooms are equipped with flat-screen cable/Smart TVs so everyone can stream their favorite show before bed!

    Rise and shine with a fresh cup of coffee from the Keurig or grab a bottle of juice from one of the 2 mini fridges, conveniently found in 2 of the 3 bedrooms.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    Find this charming beach home nestled in a small gated community of Carrabelle, a fishing village that plays host to several seafood restaurants, antique shops and local art stores. For a casual night out, walk 1.1 miles to Fathoms Steam Room and Raw Bar to taste the day’s catch while listening to a live music performance.

    Experience the best of the town when you visit the picturesque white-sand shores of Carrabelle Beach, the towering Crooked River Lighthouse or the World's Smallest Police Station! If you didn't bring a boat, head to the marina where you'll find plenty of captains waiting to take you for a fishing excursion or eco tour.

    Get a touch of old Florida when you drive 30 minutes to the enchanting shops and historic streets of Apalachicola. Also nearby is St. James Bay Golf Resort, the diverse wildlife of Wakulla Springs State Park and the award-winning beaches of St. George Island just a boat ride away!

    Spend a day closer to home and take advantage of the community pool or roam the boardwalks that run alongside the river.

    House was spacious, clean, tons of amenities, and great views. Carrebelle is a fun friendly little coastal town with great seafood and plenty of outdoor activities. Had a great time and plan to return again soon. Joel is a great host who wants you to be comfortable and enjoy his beautiful home. Thanks we had a great vacation.

    We chose this property for the views and location to the water. It has an elevator which makes getting your gear upstairs Easy. The private boat slip is a fisherman's dream! The decor inside the house is really unique and perfectly selected. My family loves this house and we will definitely stay again. Thank you to the owners who shared their house and were extremely prompt with any questions

    Manager's Response:
    J, the homeowner would like to pass along the following message:

    "We apologize for the pool not being cleaned. Of course, this is an association issue that has now been resolved. As a result of Hurricane Michael, much of the property sustained damage. The association decided to pay for the repairs from the dues that the owners paid in for maintenance, such as the pool, lawn care, etc. So our maintenance schedule was scaled back and the property looked bad for several months. Recently we paid a supplemental fee that allowed maintenance to run again as scheduled. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience, but please know that it has been resolved, also that it has nothing to do with the cleanliness of our property." Best, the Evolve Team

    This house was beautiful and well maintained. The neighborhood was beautiful and convenient to the small town and a bayside beach area as well. The elevator made the house accessible for all family members. Bring your bug spray if you plan on enjoying the deck or pier.

    Air Conditioning Broke/Better Maid Service

    Reviewed by: Evan W. on


    The location is great, convenient to fishing and store. Disappointed that the main air conditioning is broken and no one would send a maintenance person and was told to allow the unit to catch up. From 10 am to 10 pm the main floor was 77-81. Highest when I cooked one day. I am still waiting on my call back 3 days later.

    Manager's Response:
    Evan, we're glad you enjoyed this home's location, but we are sorry for the issues you encountered regarding the A/C. The homeowner reported the problem to the repair person immediately after he was notified and we regret they were slow to respond. Since your stay, the homeowner has partnered with a new HVAC service company that completes thorough repairs and has a better response time. They prioritize the guest experience and we look forward to this property hosting satisfied guests! Best, the Evolve Team

    The property was exactly as advertised. The view was gorgeous and the house was clean and had everything necessary to have an enjoyable time. The location was convenient and only a 20 minute drive to St. George Island and yet quiet and peaceful at the house. Easy to get to and a secure location tucked in just off the main highway. One thing to have just "in case" would be a first aid kit.

    Great House for and Extended Stay on the Forgotten Coast

    Reviewed by: David P on


    We stayed for the month of February 2018. The house was great. Everything was clean and comfortable. The location is very quiet. Kitchen was stocked with all the utensils, dishes, pots, appliances, etc. that we required. Carrabelle was a great central location for our kayaking activities. We paddled just about everything within an hour radius: Wacissa River, St. Marks River, Wakulla River, St. Marks NWR, Alligator Point, Ochlockonee River, New River, Crooked River, Carrabelle Beach, St. George Island, Cash Creek, St. Francis Island, St. Joe Peninsula, etc. We enjoyed the hiking trails in Tate's Hell, Bald Point, and Wright Lake. I also enjoyed many good bike rides and Kelly golfed several times at St. James Bay.

    Great location and great house.
