About the property

Blue Moon Cottage is a cute little shabby chic beach house only 250 steps to the most private and beautiful beach in Beacon Hill. Central AC, large master bedroom, antique iron queen bed, comfortable mattress with in suite bathroom, TV and lots of closet space. Many unique, original art works throughout the cottage. A cheery second bedroom is twin beds. Second bathroom with bathtub/shower separates the bedrooms. With an an artist's touch the decor is casual and comfortable for a living room that opens to an eat-in, well stocked kitchen tools for foodies. French doors off the living room lead you to the front porch sundeck with adirondack chair to sip your morning coffee. Take a left off the porch and past one house and you see the beach. A good quarterback could make a throw and hit the water. A sunroom you can use as a kids game room, additional quiet space or second dining space. The shabby chic & beachy sunroom has futon, wicker lounge, game table, dining table, separate window AC and heater, TV/DVD player, portable CD/stereo, plenty of room with mood lighting. A large stack washer & dryer in the back corner out of the way. Sunroom leads to outside deck and landscaped courtyard by a master gardener. Fresh herb garden to use for your culinary creations. Unusual plantings. Due to the cold winter 2017 some planting & herbs will need to be replaced in April. We lost our beautiful avacodo tree. Inside shed is switch to bathe the courtyard in mood lighting after sunset. Very clean and neat and casual in the cottage. Books, games, cards and puzzles to use. Three TVs total, all have cable. A quiet and private, tropical landscaped courtyard with large outdoor shower, two car ports. One car port is 21 ft. long X 12 ft. wide, 8 ft tall so you could park a small trailer or small boat there. The other car port can park two vehicles side by side but is 15 ft. long. The outdoor shed has everything you need for recreation--2 bikes, umbrella, 4 beach chairs, float, boogie boards, 2 life vests, two small hibachi grills. Very quiet area, safe with lovely neighbors. Beacon Hill Park with play ground, is two blocks away. Great local restaurants, shopping and the famous Lookout Lounge within walking distance. You will only find an affordable and beautiful retreat like this once in a blue moon!

Sorry no WiFi but we figure you don't come to the beach to stay plugged in. Non-smoking and no pets ever. We are definate about that so a great retreat for allergy- friendly travelers. Rents Saturday to Saturday. Interested in shorter stays, we will consider 3-4 nights. Our nightly rates are the best deal for a cozy cottage this close to the beach. Snowbirds inquire about our special monthly rate for January. We give discounts off the nightly rate if you stay 30 or more days. Sometimes we run specials in the off season or last minute deals.

Lovely, cozy beach house just a block away from the water!

We had such a great stay at Blue Moon! It was the perfect size for our family of 4 and everything was very comfortable! We were thrilled that there was no wifi and we could be unwind and be connected to each other! We will definitely come back!

  • 5 of 5

Cooking was easy on the gas stove and the kitchen had all the right stuff. Walking to the beach was easy and Kevin had the beach chairs and umbrella available, very Nice! The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay and would like to go back next year.

Charming Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a blissful vacation!

The cottage was absolutely spotless! We could have eaten off the floor-but didn't have too as the kitchen was fully stocked. We were able to prepare every meal with the same ease as home.

Location was top notch. We were one block off the beach, which offered peace and quiet as well as easy access. The courtyard was great. We could sit outside and chat in a private environment. Neighborhood super safe and friendly-we went for a walk every night.

We brought our two European motorcycles with us and toured the area. Have already booked another trip for June and will bring paddleboards.

Homeowner quick to respond to questions and generally cheerful. Easy to do business with.

Wonderful experience.

Blue Moon Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We planned for a short get away to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. Loved Blue Moon Cottage. It was not only cozy, clean, with a well stocked kitchen, cpmfy bed but also only 250 steps from the beach. Enjoyed visit to Port St. Joe State Park, Cape San Blas and shopping downtown in Port St. Joe. We ate at the Sunset Grill and not only had a great meal but also saw an amazing sunset view from our table. Our stay was perfect and look forward to returning for another stay.
