Port St. Joe house description

'Get Your Bathing Suit On' is a custom-built, Key West-style beach home that has RELAX written all over it! This first-tier home is less than 100 steps to the beautiful, white, sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The gorgeous Gulf beach views can be appreciated from the living room, dining room, the loft, the porch, the deck and the kitchen of our home. With its 3 separate sleeping areas,with a total of four baths,screened porch and sundeck, our whimsically-decorated home can easily accommodate a family or small group... but is still small enough for couples on a romantic getaway!!

For your convenience, we have two beach cruiser bikes, a car bike rack, a tandem kayak and a kayak cart. Our amenity program which runs from March through October entitles you to free passes to Golf, Deep Sea Fishing and Horseback Riding. We also maintain a supply of beach chairs, two beach umbrellas, a large cooler, kids fishing poles, snorkeling masks, sand mats, rafts, crab nets, crab bucket and a crab trap, boogie boards, wave boards, noodles, shovels, pails, large outdoor grill, grilling utensils, tennis rackets and beach toys! In additions to all this we also have made arrangements that allow you to check out the latest DVDs at our property manager's DVD kiosk. If you decide to stay indoors for a while we also have a cupboard full of board games and puzzles to keep you entertained.

We also try to simplify what you need to pack by providing all your linens, including beach towels, as well as a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and detergents.

There is plenty do do but if you decide to just relax, you will have a fantastic time enjoying the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch and if you decide to stroll along our quiet and award winning beaches, you can find a variety of seashells to collect, watch the dolphins swimming by, see the mullet jumping in the bayou or catch the eagles and osprey scouting for prey.

Of course, swimming, sunbathing, fishing in the surf or crabbing in the bayou are always a lot of fun.

Our area outfitters also rent bikes, canoes, paddle boards, snorkeling equipment and kayaks and can deliver them to our home if you ask them too!

Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!

Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway. Scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies are a favorite for dinner or can be frozen to be enjoyed later when you return home. In addition, nearby Indian Pass is famous for its delicious oysters!

The amenity program gives allows one adult in your party per day to golf at the St. Joseph's Peninsula Country Club, deep sea fish aboard the Fish'n Xpress and horseback ride at Rockin' M Ranch's. This pass also allows you to check out free DVD rentals daily. You are entitled to one pass to each of the activities every day of your rental.

Once you reserve, our property management office can help you with reserving your tee times, fishing excursions, riding sessions and can also give you information on where to pick up the free DVDs.


The GROUND LEVEL has a bedroom with a queen bed and a private 1/2 bath which is perfect for the mother-in-law or a guest couple. The garage is also on this level and contains the washer & dryer as well as a plentiful supply of beach chairs, rafts and beach toys for your convenience. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower conveniently located on the ground-level deck.

The MAIN LEVEL has gleaming heart pine floors throughout. It contains the kitchen with breakfast bar, dining nook and living room that open to the screened porch with pub-height table and chairs that make it easy to dine 'al fresco' while enjoying the view. In addition, the inside dining area has a very comfortable window seat perfect for afternoon naps or reading a book from our collection. There is a full bath on this level. The Master Bedroom, with king bed, is also located on this level and also has a private full bath.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Our family always wanted a house on the beach and this beach house is a dream come true. We love to swim and fish, Kayak and bike and to just sit on the porch and listen to the music of the birds, the wind and the waves. We are originally from Cuba but now live in the Northeast. We enjoy this house so much and we hope that you will too!!

              Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe:
              Money Bayou and Money Beach are unique. This is the only place in the Cape San Blas area where you can enjoy all the wonders of the beach and the bayou within steps of each other. Our proximity to St. Vincent's Wildlife Refuge, the St. Joseph Peninsular Park and to the St. Joe Buffer Preserve make this about as an ideal beach, boating, fishing, cycling and exploring beach experience as you will find anywhere!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Bayou for cast netting and crabbing, the surf for swimming and surf fishing, the bike path (a mile away) for cycling, the Raw Bar for great food and camaraderie, the Buffer Preserve, the state park and the Wildlife Refuge for nature exploration (you can see sea horses swimming in the bay at the state park!!!). The closest restaurant is about a mile away. It is the Indian Pass Raw Bar and is famous for its oysters and other seafood (as well as for its VERY casual atmosphere.. it is a DEFINITE local culture experience you should try!) There are a few other restaurants that are fairly nearby, however, if you want even MORE shopping and restaurants-besides those that are nearby- there are a number to choose from in Port St. Joe (9 miles west) and Apalachicola (19 miles east), Mexico Beach (20 miles west) and Panama City (48 miles west).
