Easily recognizable and certainly well-known, as one of the most popular and desirable of beachfront properties for locals and visitors alike, “A Frame With A View” has recently been magnificently transformed, every single nook and cranny. 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)!

Beautiful spot on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this house with our dog. It was perfect for a couple. The beach access is easy and the beach was empty which we loved since our dog could swim. I would not recommend the home for more than 2 people or 2 people and a small children. The outdoor space is perfect for entertaining and is very spacious. We had family over for dinner most nights to watch the spectacular sunsets. I can’t wait to come back.

A week in the A Frame with a View

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week in the A frame in February and we have to say it was just great! The house has everything you'd need for great vacation plus who doesn't love a few steps to the beach; drinks on the back deck while watching the sun drop into the Gulf of Mexico; a fenced in deck surrounding the house so your favorite pet can wander without risk; great shops and restaurants a short drive away in old Port St. Joe.

The house was cool. Love the modern simple decor. It was just too cold during the time we went.

Location is prime! Love the windows and the porch. Just a little too small for us. Also the shipwreck raw bar was great!

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.
