A Frame is still that quaint and cozy cottage that nestles amongst the sea oats and white sands of St. Joe Beach, but now truly offers up what its name implies, “a view” looking directly out onto the beautiful Gulf of Mexico through its newly installed wall of clear glass windows and door.

Quaint gulf front "A" frame home. Great beach location and one of the best views! 2 miles from the heart of Mexico Beach, convenient to everything the area has to offer this is the perfect getaway for two couples, a small family, or just a couple that want some beach time. Amenities includes vinyl plank floors, full kitchen, 1 TV, DVD, WiFi, heating/cooling system, charcoal grill, both covered and open sections of gulf side that wraps around giving you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the awesome sunsets. Pet friendly for those bringing their four legged family member.

75' from the water, big wrap around deck on white sandy beach. Stay in your own house, not an attached unit, & enjoy your privacy! Quiet section of the beach; watch the dolphins from the deck every morning while drinking your coffee & enjoy a cocktail at night watching the sunset. Only 3 miles from the center of Mexico Beach-walk the beach to Toucan's (mile & a half)! Convenient to everything. All reservations get seasonal (Summer/Fall/Spring) FAMILY FUN PASS included in your rental!!! One complimentary round of golf daily, complimentary deep sea fishing trip (1 adult fare incl bait, tackle, license), 1 free horseback excursion daily plus free DVD rentals (DVDs year round, not seasonal)!

Quaint and quiet

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to St. Joe for 14 years and stayed in many different homes and condos. Our favorite part of Frame with a view is the deck. Just steps from the beach and beautiful view. A fence wraps the deck, with an out door shower and colorful chairs. It is a wonderful out door living spaces. We come to St. Joe so we can bring our two dogs. This house was just perfect for them. The inside is new, fresh and modern . It advertises two bedrooms . It is one bedroom and a small loft. great for kids. The only draw back is the small shower , bedroom space and storage. I would not recommend for older couples because the stairs might be hard to manage. Overall, we had a great week and a relaxing trip. Thank you for a great rental.

This rental is everything and then some. Accommodations were clean and fresh and quite comfortable and only steps away from the water. Property management company was helpful. I took advantage of the deep sea fishing trip and highly recommend it. My first trip made me want to go back again. I even caught two red snapper which I thoroughly enjoyed. There is limited restaurant selection; however I prefer to cook most meals myself so it wasn't an issue. If peace and tranquility and beach is all you want, this is your place!!!

Owner's Response: Sounds like you had an altogether fantastic vacation! Your comments are exactly what we were going for in the remodel....clean and fresh. Makes me feel even better that Pristine Properties provided you with the service you deserve. We'd love to have you back again in the future. Maybe this time a horseback ride on the beach along with the deep sea fishing with the Family Fun Pass. Thanks for staying with us and thanks for your kind words.

Perfectly Small

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our week-long getaway. It is literally steps from the beach and close to the (somewhat limited) food and shopping options of Mexico Beach and Port St Joe. The place was very clean and everything looked exactly like it does in the photos.

The only minor downside that I would mention is that certain areas can be just a little too small. I'm about 6' 4" and the shower was a little tight, as were parts of the upstairs. Not worth removing a star though, my wife had no problem at all.

We'll definitely be back to visit A Frame with a View! smile emoji sunset emoji

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you and your wife enjoyed your stay at our property! It is a little small, you're correct. It's hard to fit so much greatness in a tiny space lol. When remodeling we tried to maximize the limited space as much as possible and tried to overcome the shower with the larger/open living space. We hope to have you back! Thanks for staying with us!

Immaculate and adorable little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Good things come in small packages is the perfect description for this little gem of a house. COMPLETELY renovated, so bright and fresh and beachy! The interior was impeccable, all the appliances new, every room bright and fresh. The furniture is new and modern, the convertible couch in the living area is not your typical hide-a-bed,

but a much more modern, much more comfortable version. The lower deck shown in the photos is now fenced in, perfect for smaller children or pets. Our party consisted of my husband, myself, our two adult daughters and two toddlers, and we had plenty of room. The property management folks were outstanding, we can't say enough about this little place for the money!

This was the perfect little hid away. Yes it is small BUT that is explained in the description. I truly loved this little piece of heaven and YES we would stay there again. The location was great, the beach was fabulous. the house needed a little work but it is a rental and it was VERY clean. The pictures are exactly what you will see when you walk into the property. I had never been to Mexico Beach before but I will return.
