  • Excellent Beach House

    "This beach house was amazing! We had an amazing trip and the beach was beautiful. The house was even better than the pictures. We loved the kitchen! I was able to cook while we were there and they had all of the pots and pans we needed. The gas grill was great too. We loved that we could walk down the steps straight onto the beach. The beach was pretty private and we were able to leave our beach chairs and umbrellas on the beach the whole week. We were also able to build a fire on the beach which was awesome! We can't wait to come back again next year! Tip: We did experience some biting flies on the beach (which apparently happens from time to time). We went to the convenience store across the street and got some Cactus Juice and it worked like a charm. No more bites!"

  • Wonderful place for a quick "babymoon"

    "My husband and I wanted to have a few days to spend relaxing, talking and planning before our baby arrives in October. This was the perfect quaint cottage for us! It was a last minute get away, perfect location and I LOVE the decor and cleaness of the cottage. We hope to be back! The area has so much to do and we would like to bring our other children and family to play in the state parks and wander around the pan handle. Thanks for putting so much attention to detail into every room of the house. We felt like we could move right in! Highly recommend this cottage."

  • Relaxing

    "Our stay here was wonderful, condo was just as described and pictures were accurate. Owner was really nice to work with. Location was great, you just have to cross the highway to get to the beach. Depending on the time of the day, the highway can be a little busy. Owners provided beach chairs and other items you would need. You can walk to most of the restaurants, and there is a grocery store about a block away. Mexico Beach Florida is a very small and laid back community. Tyndall air force base is about 8 to 10 miles away, jets go over the area a couple times a day, it's awesome. Panama City is about 30 miles and Panama City Beach about 40-50 miles away. Port Saint Joe FL is a nice little town with shops and a few restaurants about 10 miles east. Golf courses are a little far and hard to get tee times. If you need to relax this is the place for you."

  • Amazing Vacation, Great Condo!

    "This rental was amazing. It was comfortable, clean, convenient, and a great place to spend a relaxing vacation for 2 couples that just sent our children off to college. The added bonus of beach service that was included was the icing on the cake. It is beautifully decorated, yet comfortable, which makes you feel right at home. It was clean, which is a big factor in my reviewing a place. The owners were so easy to work with and very friendly. We plan on going back next year and hopefully staying at this condo again! We were THAT pleased!"

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.
