About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6) 1 king, 1 queen, 2 twins, sleeper sofa
For your convenience we have a tandem Kayak, A Stand-Up Paddle board and a Tommy Bahama Beach Cart with Umbrella to easily tote all your things to the beach. We maintain a supply of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, a large cooler, kids fishing poles, rafts, small crab nets, crab bucket and a crab trap, boogie boards, wave boards,, shovels, pails, large outdoor grill, grilling utensils, tennis rackets and beach toys! If you decide to stay indoors for a while we also have a cupboard full of board games and puzzles to keep you entertained.
We have three to four beach cruisers. They seem to require pretty constant maintenance so we can never absolutely guarantee that every guests will have use of the bicycles. In general, at least two of the bicycles work but last year there was a 2 week period where all for bikes had one issue or another (flat tire, chain off, crashed front wheel, loose handle bars...) Our property manager will not maintain the bicycles so we do this ourselves but we do not live close enough to come weekly . We do stock extra tools and extra inner tubes , etc, but not everyone is knowledgeable in bike maintenance or wishes, on vacation to do bike repair. All this is to say that you will likely have bicycles to use but we don't guarantee it.
We also try to simplify what you need to pack by providing all your linens and bath towels, as well as a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and detergents. Please note that the linen service DOES NOT INCLUDE BEACH TOWELS so please bring those from home.
There is plenty do do but if you decide to just relax, you will have a fantastic time enjoying the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch and if you decide to stroll along our quiet and award winning beaches, you can find a variety of seashells to collect, watch the dolphins swimming by, see the mullet jumping in the bayou or catch the eagles and osprey scouting for prey. There is also an amazing star gazing view from the top deck. Our area is very undeveloped so the night sky is not obscured by light from street lamps or business lights.
Of course, swimming, sunbathing, fishing in the surf or crabbing in the bayou are always a lot of fun.
Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!
Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway. Scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies are a favorite for dinner or can be frozen to be enjoyed later when you return home. In addition, nearby Indian Pass is famous for its delicious oysters!
The GROUND LEVEL has a bedroom with a queen bed and a private 1/2 bath which is perfect for the mother-in-law or a guest couple. The garage is also on this level and contains the washer & dryer as well as a plentiful supply of beach chairs, rafts and beach toys for your convenience. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower conveniently located on the ground-level deck.
The MAIN LEVEL has gleaming heart pine floors throughout. It contains the kitchen with breakfast bar, dining nook and living room that open to the screened porch with pub-height table and chairs that make it easy to dine 'al fresco' while enjoying the view. In addition, the inside dining area has a very comfortable window seat perfect for afternoon naps or reading a book from our collection. There is a full bath on this level. The Master Bedroom, with king bed, is also located on this level and also has a private full bath.
The LOFT, which serves as the third bedroom, has two twin beds with built-in drawers. The loft also has a 1/2 bath. It is perfect for kids/teenagers or friends. It also has a large open area that provides plenty of extra room for play.
The house has WiFi and all the bedrooms and the loft have their own TVs with DVD players. There is also a TV, DVD player and CD player in the living room.
We invite you to stay at 'Get Your Bathing Suit On'to relax and enjoy 'Old Florida.'

About the owner: Our family always wanted a house on the beach and this beach house is a dream come true. We love to swim and fish, Kayak and bike and to just sit on the porch and listen to the music of the birds, the wind and the waves. We are originally from Cuba but now live in the Northeast. We enjoy this house so much and we hope that you will too!!
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
Money Bayou and Money Beach are unique. This is the only place in the Cape San Blas area where you can enjoy all the wonders of the beach and the bayou within steps of each other. Our proximity to St. Vincent's Wildlife Refuge, the St. Joseph Peninsular Park and to the St. Joe Buffer Preserve make this about as an ideal beach, boating, fishing, cycling and exploring beach experience as you will find anywhere!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Bayou for cast netting and crabbing, the surf for swimming and surf fishing, the bike path (a mile away) for cycling, the Raw Bar for great food and camaraderie, the Buffer Preserve, the state park and the Wildlife Refuge for nature exploration (you can see sea horses swimming in the bay at the state park!!!). The closest restaurant is about a mile away. It is the Indian Pass Raw Bar and is famous for its oysters and other seafood (as well as for its VERY casual atmosphere.. it is a DEFINITE local culture experience you should try!) There are a few other restaurants that are fairly nearby, however, if you want even MORE shopping and restaurants-besides those that are nearby- there are a number to choose from in Port St. Joe (9 miles west) and Apalachicola (19 miles east), Mexico Beach (20 miles west) and Panama City (48 miles west).
