About the owner: Your host Ted Sparling is a life time Florida resident who has traveled all over Florida. Gulf county has all the things I love the most about Florida and the water. It is one off the few places I never want to leave. I know you will come to love Port St Joe and the surrounding area like I have and invite you to experience it for yourselves.
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe:
I bought this house many years ago because of its proximity to everything. It has the best of what gulf county has to offer in any direction. Great views, good clean neighborhood, and But most important was its close to what we enjoy most about the area and that's the water.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
A typical summer day starts with a cup of coffee on the porch swing or the back porch, Loading the boat from the back porch, topping off the boat with fuel one block down the road, splashing the boat the next block down the road, playing on the water all day and sometimes into the night. Cooking our days catch on the back porch for dinner. watching the sun go down, then telling lies into the night. Then getting up and doing it again. On our days off we go driving on the beach, or to Apalachicola, or to Panama City if we feel the need for civilization.
