Why Patti Wood chose Crawfordville
We love the Gulf of Mexico and Tallahassee. Our wish list for a Gulf getaway included access to a boat dock on our property with not just a view of the Gulf but also the ability to sink our toes in the white sand that embraces the Gulf of Mexico. The idea of beginning the day: savoring French Press Coffee (on our private dock) watching the sun rise; then meandering to the beach with our dog children; ride recumbent tricycles safely; pedal the Paddlewheeler Pedal Boat in the pristine waters of the Gulf while trolling for Redfish, was a compelling list that only could be met by a property in Shell Point. When we watched the sunset over the Gulf at Shell Point Beach we realized that Shell Point was the answer to our dream getaway. While we were considering the purchase of this property Wakulla County began construction on the "Capital to the Sea" bike trail leading south from Tallahassee and West to Wakulla High School. That was the trigger that made us purchase this property. The idea of sharing this wonderful location with families brought closure to our dream.
What makes this Mobile Home unique
1) Shell Point Beach has just been restored with white sand and Oyster pots and is less than 1000 feet away from our home. Access is out a private gate which sets on the rear of our property. You walk past your own private dock, passing by the newly installed Wakulla Boat Ramp and laugh at the Pelicans sitting on the marina dock. Then you can sink your toes in the white sand or wade into the Gulf. 2) At your private dock is a Paddlewheeler Pedal Boat which you may use as much as you choose since it is part of our amenity package. If you choose, troll at low speeds, hopefully landing the perfect fish for your family dinner. 3) When you have tired of being on the water slide onto one of the bicycles and pedal all around Shell Point. 4) And if your family is not exhausted yet, chill in the private pool.

One of our favorite vacations ever!
We absolutely loved our vacation. This place was perfect for what we needed for a quiet get away. Thanks to the canal and boat dock with a boat ramp just steps away from the rental. We took our boat out everyday of the stay. We fished and set the crab traps provided from the boat dock. We also made use of the paddle boat and especially the golf cart. We swam in the beautiful pool with a view daily. The beach was lovely especially early morning and late evening when we could spot the dolphin playing in the channel. Everyone we met at the resort was so friendly and welcoming. One of the residents was harvesting their pear tree and asked use to stop by and pick us some to take home, which we did. The home had everything we needed for our stay and more. The home was beautifully decorated and comfortable. It was a joy to be able to bring our four legged family member Spud. I had the privilege of experiencing the sky over the beach during the Black Moon. The sky was black with no clouds in site and it appeared every star was visible. Absolutely beautiful! We will definitely be renting again. Soon hopefully! Just the get away we needed to slow down and just relax. Lucky for us it is only about an hour from our home.
Love Shell Point
I booked this property specifically for access to the pool. It was more than disappointing not to allow my nieces and nephews in the pool. We have always stayed in Paradise Village- this year there were not enough accommodations available . The house my cousin normally rents was completely gone as were many others. 90% of the time I passed the pool, there was no one in it. Who does that benefit? The house was not properly cleaned, updates are definitely needed. I booked with the previous owner. He allowed pets and it greatly influenced my decision on this property.

Our stay was wonderful! The house and neighborhood were tucked away and not crowded. Neal was very easy to deal with and quick to respond. My family had a blast and can't wait for our next visit!
We had a wonderful time. It was just the vacation we were in need of.
Neal and Paula were wonderful host. The property was exactly as Neal had explained.
Such a special spot!!!
We stumbled upon this getaway when looking for lodging near Wakulla Springs, and its such a special community. We had a group ranging in age from 78 down to 5...and everyone had a wonderful time! The place is extremely well stocked and has a great lay out! We loved having a screened in porch and use of the golf cart...which was so much fun to head out to the beach!!! Neal is a great communicator and extremely responsive!!! Overall, it was such a lovely and fun spot to build great memories!
The Getaway is amazing. It is the perfect location. A great place to unwind and relax.
A week we will never forget. Neal is the best host I have had the pleasure of working with! I definitely see more Getaway vacations in my future. Shell Point is a hidden gem.
Ms. J, Your comments are appreciated greatly. Being a short=term rental concierge has been the best gig of my life. Being able to assist our guests triggers so much joy for me. I can't wait to have your family return as our guests in the future. All the best, Neal.
