Mexico Beach offers some of best fishing in Florida and some of the last remaining undeveloped beachfront in the state. Our beaches are almost never crowded, often almost empty. Nearby there are many miles of beach still in a natural state.

What makes this house unique

Safe. Quiet,friendly neighborhood, mostly locals , not many rentals here . Easy walking distance to the popular Killer Seafood, Toucans restaurant, Lookout Lounge bar and Gulf Foods grocery store, 90 Steps from the beach and the new side walk path that parallels the beach.

The Beachcomber is a comfortable, clean beach house with a very nice view and just a short walk to the beach. The house was well stocked, and Alan was a very helpful host. My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our girl trip.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and comfortable. The front porch was great for morning coffee and dolphin watching. It was so nice to have chairs, umbrella, wagon, sand toys, and bikes there to use. Thoroughly enjoyed our week! Can't wait to go back.

Great place, great host!

  • 5 of 5

House is really nice. Beach is just right there. Porch is perfect for morning coffee, evening cocktails, and waiting out rain storms. Kitchen has everything you need. Alan is the perfect host, and will help with whatever you need. Highly recommend the shelling trip he offers. Mexico Beach is perfect and the section by the house is quiet in the morning and sleepy all day. Perfect getaway.

One of a kind special place.

  • 5 of 5

Alan has a beautiful two bedroom bungalow, very nicely furnished with all the nice touches. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the gulf. Took Alan's beach cart down to the beach and enjoyed the sun, sand, surf and the blue heron's and sandpipers. Alan is a Captain and he took us kayaking and snorkeling in St Joseph Bay on his 40 foot boat. He also does fishing charters and photo expeditions. We explored Port St Joe, Cape San Blas and quaint Apalachicola. Wonderful vacation but best of all we made a new friend.

Wonderful House with Great Ocean Views without the High Oceanfront Prices!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Beachcomber! We will definitely be back. The ocean views from the porch are amazing and the house was immaculate! The beds and linens were something special also. I don't think I have ever raved about bedding on a beach vacation before! The owner, Alan, is a great guy who is very attentive to his guests' needs. He really does want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. He went above and beyond when he worked with us to get us checked into the property early. He also had our beach cart loaded with chairs and umbrellas and ready to go. I can't say enough good things about this house or about Alan. You will just have to experience it for yourself!
