    "It is a GREAT place to stay! We had a wonderful time! The condo is perfict for a family of any size. We were able to cook and spend time with our Sailor who is stationed in Pensacola. Condo is located about 15 minutes from the base. The beach location was very privite and pool was located real close to this condo. It was an excellent time!"

    "This is our 7th year of vacationing at Port St. Joe & Cape San Blas and my experience with Gone Catchin's owner has always been nothing less than excellent. My family and I have always enjoyed our time at their home and appreciate their kindness. I plan on booking again soon for 2015."

  • Great Condo

    "The condo was in immaculate condition when we arrived and looked exactly like the pictures. The view of the ocean was breathtaking and certainly a welcome sight every morning. The location was perfect, with great places to eat breakfast right across the street and plenty of other restaurants nearby."

  • Family vacation at High Cotton

    "High Cotton really is only steps away from the beach! I would say that the location is the best thing about this rental. There is also a cart to help you carry all your stuff to the beach. This was a huge help, especially when you have a 4 year old and a 9 month old (you have a lot of stuff!!) There is a toilet conveniently located on the ground floor, and a hose to rinse off when returning from the beach. The beds were all very comfortable, and linens provided clean and good quality. The house does have air conditioning, making for a nice comfortable temperature inside. We found the upstairs to be very clean, however I would have liked the main floor to be cleaner. It seemed like it needed a deeper clean (dusting, sweep under furniture, wipe cabinets etc). You notice these things more when you have a baby crawling around! The house is nicely decorated. We enjoyed looking at all the pictures and the original decorations around the house. The house has a fast internet connection and cable tv. The beach is a haven for shells, we saw dolphins swimming almost everyday, and there was a sea turtle nest on our section of beach, although we were not there long enough to see them hatch! The owners of this property were very helpful and always quick to reply to questions. I found using VRBO a very easy and convenient process."

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

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.
