Two blocks from famous Schooners Restaurant and Bar which is an open air restaurant located directly on the beach. Parasail, waverunner, and banana boat rentals within two blocks of beach house. Close to marinas full of fishing boats, pontoon rentals etc., grocery stores, banks, tackle shops, bait, night clubs.
Walking distance to the locals favorite beachfront hangout, Schooner's where you can grab a burger or just sit back and watch the sunset. Did we mention St. Andrews State Park is just a short walk down the beach and is rated one of the top beaches in the world? You can enjoy over 1000 acres of pristine beach property in the State Park.
All in a nice, quiet beach neighborhood at the east end of Thomas Dr. Hanging with the locals is what we like to say! Three bedrooms all upstairs, two full baths upstairs and half bath down. Fully stocked kitchen and full-size washer/dryer. Extra parking for boat, jet skis, or camper. Large, beautiful, tropical and natural lot, fenced for privacy. Balcony for view of Gulf, patio, and grill. A true home away from home experience!!!
Many unique ocean scenes painted on old picture windows decorate this house(Local artist Corrine Kopf). The 75X100 foot lot offers plenty of parking. Someone wanted to pay over a million for the property but how could you replace it?? LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!
NO SMOKING INSIDE AND NO PETS.

Amazing and very homey
This is the second time we have stayed at mikes beach home and we are very please just ast the time before. Mike was always just a text away and he provided all of the necessities we needed for our stay. Theyve upgrade the couches in the living room and the reorganized the room with the twin beds and it was perfect for my family. My daughter loved playing in the dand in the back yard while we used the grill that was provided. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beach home mike and hope to rent from you again very soon.
The Perng Family
We enjoyed it 😊
Overall we got what we paid for. Definitely a budget rental.
The owners: They were very friendly, and tried to make sure we had the essentials. Answered all questions in a timely fashions
The amenities: I loved that they provided nice new chairs for the beach and a cooler that rolled! There was a DVD player which came in handy, cable, and an old school radio.
The home: It definitely could stand to be updated, and the carpet NEEDS to be either replaced or a DEEP cleaning, the same goes for the couches and chairs, they NEED to be reupholstered or DEEP cleaned. The beds were comfortable, but there were stains on many of the pillows, so we ended buying a sheet set. There were dishes, toaster, blender, microwave, and all were sufficient. Some of the handles on doors were SUPER loose so we tried not to touch them to much.
Distance from beach: This is the bonus bonus for this place, despite needing a lot of "work" and upkeep you're litterally across from the beach, you can walk to it in less that 5 min. So convenient when hauling things back and forth and not having to make long trips like if you were walking to pier park, or looking for parking at St. Andrews. The waves are AMAZING! And it's not crowded, just perfect, perfect, perfect!
Overall: Overall it was a decent stay, id say great for college kids who may not care about upkeep or updated amenities, or a spur of moment get away where you won't be spending a good deal of time in the house. You can not beat the distance from beach bottom line, for that reason if nothing else it's a good deal. The owners are easy to work with as well.
Great location, comfortable house!
We had a wonderful time staying at this house. It felt like home and was a small walk to the water. We encourage others to stay and enjoy this wonderful vacation house!
Exactly like the pictures
We enjoyed our stay, enough space for 3 adults and 6 kids.. literally around the corner from the beach. If we came back, we would rent again! Also 5 minutes away from St Andrews State Park which is a must!
There was lots of room in the house, we had to family's and we all had out space. The pictures on the Internet don't do this place justice. It was a short walk to the beach and was never to crowded. Also within walking distance was shopping and a great little place to eat. It was also a short drive to Captain Andersons wich we have never eaten at until this stay, great food and view of the marina. They owner was quick to answer all of our questions before and during our stay. Great place to stay!!
St. Andrew's State Park and Pier within a short are very close. Perfect location for a great time at the beach.
