VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special
' There's a marvelous, peaceful aura in your property there. Can't be just the marvelous setting. Must also come from the care you give it.' from a review by Marty
Come and enjoy our white sand beach, beautiful water, and perfect sunsets. This unique, beachfront house is the only home on a 600 foot stretch of white sand beach (that means that no house is jammed against you on either side).The spacious open floor plan features hardwood floors and tile baths, flat screen tvs,dvd players, and wifi, plus a fully outfitted kitchen and laundry room make this a perfect house for your vacation needs.It is designed with a central wall that has sets of pocket doors between two sides so that it can be rented as one whole unit (six bedrooms, two kitchens, two living rooms, etc.) or the sets of sliding pocket doors can be closed and it can be rented as two units. During the months of June and July, we only rent it as a whole unit. It is a well thought out, architect designed home that features simple decor - pine floors throughout and simple, functional furnishings. Each bedroom opens onto the Gulf breezes. It features two huge decks that span the whole gulf front of the house where rocking chairs are waiting for the guests, making the oceanfront location a perfect place to watch dolphins and sea birds.
Our Gulf County beaches were voted the number one beaches in America several years ago and many people describe this as 'Old Florida', comparatively unspoiled and unfrequented by the hordes of vacationers. We have sunsets that take your breath away and the beach is your front yard, only steps down your private walkway. This home is located on a stretch of beach known locally as 'the Beaches' and is made up of Mexico Beach, Beacon Hill Beach, and St. Joe Beach. It is the spot where the beautiful white sand/blue water beach begins (and extends west) in the panhandle and there have been several Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues shot here because of the natural beauty of the beachfront, our beautiful dunes, and impressive beachfront plant life. The owners live nearby and are able to give the property the attention it deserves. Please read our comments to get an idea of the relaxing nature of a stay here. Please do not contact us for price reductions;we are already well under local market value. No weddings; No parties are allowed on the property. Our house rents Sunday-Sunday for weekly rentals all summer and in April.

The moment we walked into what we call “The Rocking Chair House”, we were amazed at how well maintained, nice and spacious the house was. Many properties say beachfront or near the beach but this house is right on a large stretch of a gorgeous white sand beach! You can take in the views from two full length covered porches with eight plus relaxing rocking chairs.
One of the best part of any beach stay is a bonfire and at this house it’s completely legal and fun to do. Just clean up the area in the morning. There’s a trash can right at the entrance so this is easy to do. We enjoyed making s’mores and telling stories by the fire a couple of the evenings.
The WIFI reaches out towards the beach and on the patios so you can enjoy browsing your iPad, checking emails and sending real time photos that will make your family jealous :)
The house is very spacious compared to many we have stayed at and has a very efficient layout. Each bedroom has two sinks, one in the shower area and one right in each of the master bedroom(s). This allows two people to get ready at the same time and have some extra space.
The kids had a blast going up and down the spiral staircase which makes the upstairs feel like their private hideaway. There are other doors upstairs leading to the second “full length” deck which they used a bit, but they really enjoyed the spiral staircases.
We had some great meals at Joe Mama’s Pizza and several of the local oyster bars. Even during the off season, this area is a blast and offers many great things to do. One of our favorite adventures was driving out to the Indian Pass oyster bar which is near a park out on a peninsula.
This property is basically two symmetrical fully equipped 3 bedroom houses split by a rolling door. You can rent both or one side during non summer months. Due to the flexibility of this layout, you can have a family reunion with multiple families or book it for yourself.
The hosts were very kind, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. One morning we had a wind storm and they called us to make sure everything was alright. This house was so solid and quiet, we barely even noticed but appreciated the call.
