A Floating Home On The River With A Variety Of Activities To Observe

This property is a unique and well appointed floating condo with all updated features. It has two bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a double bed. There is 1.5 bathrooms which share a shower but still retain complete privacy for each bedroom's occupants. The kitchen has all of the features of a modern home such as a full size refrigerator, new stove and microwave. Small appliances include a coffee maker (coffee provided), blender, toaster, electric can opener along with dishes and glasses and more. The kitchen surfaces are solid Corian with indoor dining seating available for 4. All furnishings are very upscale. The art features a local artist, Tom Tiffin, who has captured a very authentic portrayal of a local shrimp fishing boat. The best feature is the large front porch which offers a spectacular views of both sunrises by looking to the right and sunsets on your left. There are always either boats, fish or birds to view from your porch. Today, I saw 2 dolphins swim by. This area includes seating for 6.. The all electric 950 sq. ft. houseboat offers all of the modern systems including an easily controlled air conditioner/heating system It has an aluminum hull and is surrounded by a new floating dock system which makes getting off and on a breeze. A comfortable temperature can be maintained at all times of the year by merely opening the front and back doors to the river breezes. This is indeed a wonderful way to spend a relaxing and comfortable vacation.

Apalachicola is a historic town dating back to the 1700s when it was one of the most active ports for the cotton trade behind New Orleans and Mobile. It has retained the historic homes and museums and many offer tours at various times during the year. My favorite is the Historic Homes Tour which is put on by Trinity Episcopal Church during the first weekend in May. In fact, Trinity has a long history and an interesting story. Apalachicola is world famous for their oysters and provides almost all of the oysters served in Florida. They are served in all local restaurants with the freshest being served right next door at Up The Creek Raw Bar Restaurant. Fishing is most desirable in the waters around Apalachicola. One of the best fishing guides is Capt. Jimmy Maxwell of Backwater Guide Services who also offers wonderful tours of the area and may pick you up right from your houseboat. Within the last several years, the town has developed into an active artistic community with a variety of styles offered around town. The local restaurants offer a variety of the freshest fish that I have ever tasted - often right off the local shrimp boats. The shopping options include resort clothing and antique shops. If the beach is your passion, then St. George Island is only 10 minutes away and has some of the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the state. In fact, it has recently been rated by Dr. Beach as the third best beach in the nation.
