  • A great place to stay - will stay here again!

    "My husband and I (with our 100 lb chocolate lab) stayed in this wonderful house in April 2014 for our anniversary trip. It was everything we wanted and needed for our stay. I was 7 months pregnant so having the Elevator was so helpful (the dog wasnt digging it at first...lol). The Top floor is where the Kitchen, Living area, and Master Suite are. We pretty much stayed on that floor for our trip. The Kitchen is nice and well equipped for the cooking and grilling we liked to do. The Master suite was large and very accommodating. There is a great balcony off of this floor giving wonderful views. The laundry room was on the middle floor - worked fine. Everything was Clean, in working order, and was as Described. The House is just a short stint to the beach - walkable. Absolutely no complaints about the house! The owner is a wonderful guy. He was very eager to make sure our stay was perfect, and went out of his way in our case to make sure we were having a great trip. We are already planning to rent this house again next year around the same time! I definitely recommend this rental. (Note: Bring your bug spray - applies to anywhere you stay on the island!!)"

  • !!!GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!!

    "My family of four stayed here for a week in the fall and loved it. The house is large, clean, and very nice. It is stocked with EVERYTHING except your clothes! St. Joe beach is a beautiful beach, and the house was just perfect! We rode bikes, walked, kayaked, played in the ocean, and took the golf cart to the beach, store, and to visit friends. We will be back..cannot wait!"

  • Jason from north Texas

    "My family and i have a great vacation in Florida. The condo has great views and is very tastefully decorated. My two teenage boys love the fact that they could talk to all the girls at the shower that is right below the balcony. Kim is a very pleasant woman to work with. We will rent from her the next time we are on vacation in Florida."

  • Awesome space!!!

    "I looked into some quiet places to take a long time friend who has been a special part of my life and decided on Great Escape even though it was more money than others I had stayed in on the Cape. It was worth every penny and was true to the description and pics presented on VRBO! The view, well equipped kitchen, screened porch, deck, clean living spaces and baths were beautifully decorated. We will certainly be coming back to Great Escape. Teresa and Chris of Teresa's Beach Homes were very helpful in answering questions about the area even before we arrived. It was a memorable and wonderful trip for us."

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Museum of Art: Situated in Pensacola’s historic Old City Jail Building, this public institution encourages creativity in visual arts with 18 annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures and films.

Best Beaches of Northwest Florida

Santa Rosa Beach: Santa Rosa Beach was founded in 1910 and was the start of South Walton as its known today. Surrounding this sandy area are luxurious beach houses, a unique artist colony and plenty of upscale dining. Follow up a day of sun and surf with an elegant evening out, complete with fine dining and plenty of culture.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list. There are endless opportunities for both fun and relaxation here. Stroll down Pensacola Beach Pier or set up your rod for a morning of fishing. Stake your claim on the beach itself for some quality time with loved ones in the sun before grabbing a lunch of fresh seafood at a nearby eatery.

Topsail Hill State Preserve: At Topsail Hill you’ll find amazing natural features, including 3.2 miles of secluded sandy beaches and dunes rising more than 25 feet tall. The state preserve offers and excellent location for an afternoon of fishing off the shore or hiking through the trees while on the lookout for local birds. Of course, there’s the beach itself, where you can soak up some rays, build an epic sand castle or have a swimming race.
