About Todd and Hillary Timmons

Todd and Hillary Timmons purchased this house in 2009

Why Todd and Hillary Timmons chose Florida Main North West

Each summer, our family has rented a home along this forgotten coast and created lasting memories with our children and pets. We now wish to extend this offer to you. Foster family togetherness and wholesome games in the cool,screened-in porch, take a horseback ride (right on the beach) while the sun goes down or learn to grill, bake or smoke on the Big Green Egg! We would love for you to be our guest!!

What makes this house unique

Private - pet friendly - beach allows you to relax, and enjoy all of your family members (Fido included)! Sip on a daiquiri with the ocean in view as the sun sets on the deck. The hardest part of your day will be deciding what you want for dinner... This house is 2400 square feet, with a very open floor plan which fosters family activities. The kids are going to have a blast!

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Sandy Daze. Our 2 Pembroke Welsh corgis also had a blast. They enjoyed the beach and we enjoyed being able to wash them with warm water before entering the home after all the beach fun. We enjoyed relaxing and for the first part of our stay we could hear the waves crashing from the house which was wonderful. This was due to the choppy seas, the last 2 days the seas were so calm you could hear a pin drop, it was fun to see. We also enjoyed star gazing from the 2nd balcony. We also received a wonderful gift basket upon arrival. Thanks again Sandy Daze for the amazing short getaway. Hillary is amazing to work with, thanks for all the sweet check ins on us to make sure we were good and enjoying our stay. I highly recommed this house for a vacation!

Peaceful, Relaxing, Serene

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Daze was lacking for NOTHING. The minute you walk in the house you feel completely "at home". What a warm, comfortable feeling for people as well as pooches. There was a dog treat dispenser filled with goodies as well as towels and shampoo for our four legged grand puppy! Not many places offer that. Now for the adults, there was nothing to want for from books to read, dvds to watch, ice machine for cold drinks, or beach chairs to relax in the sand! It was exceptional and we HATED to leave! Looking forward to making Sandy Daze a new yearly (maybe more often) tradition. Truly a treat! Thank you Hillary and Todd for sharing your special place and keeping in touch while we were there should we need anything! Truly a delightful week!

Second time to stay at this wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay at Sandy Daze again. Great family getaway to CSB for the week. Everything you need to stay comfortably and lets you be able to pack lightly with all the things that are supplied for the beach.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described. It was clean and beautifully decorated. There really was no need to bring anything other than personal items, as the home is very well stocked. There were plenty of beach toys and extra towels and carts to help bring stuff to the beach. Todd and Hillary were very easy to work with and responded promptly to any questions. They left a gift basket for us upon our arrival, and mailed us a fun magnet prior to our stay so we can always have a piece of sandy daze with us.. We have been vacationing at Cape San Blas for several years and this is by far the best home we have rented. We were excited to have the dolphins come in to play on our last day, they came in very close to where we were standing, so keep your camera ready. Cape San Blas is a great place to truly relax and put your feet up far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We highly recommend eating at Provisions in Port St. Joe the food and service were excellent. You won't regret choosing this home or location for your visit.

Sandy Daze was pure Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at Sandy Daze for 2 wonderful weeks! The house was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Even with a tropical storm, we had plenty of room in the house to keep everyone happy for 2 days. The beach was wonderful, and we didn't venture out the entire first week. This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had and we will return!

Amazing Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Cape San Blas is truly the forgotten coast and our family LOVES the slow pace and lack of commercialism! This property is fantastic! Clean and well maintained home. Great common space and plenty of seating for everyone to be together, including our four legged family member! The Timmons' have went out of their way to make this truly feel like a home away from home. Tons of beach towels and pet towels! The outside shower for rinsing off the day's salt and sand was great. Well stocked kitchen. Loved the Green Egg! (Need more time to become proficient!! lol) The kayaks were AWESOME!! (bit of a workout to get them to the beach but well worth the effort!!) My only criticism is the lack of a door on the vanity portion of the upstairs bathroom. Not a problem if you have small children staying in the porch bedroom but a little inconvenient for two couples or grown son. You have to go to the Up the Creek Raw Bar in Apalachicola!! You will not be disappointed if you rent this property, it is amazing!!!
