Perfect for our needs. Father/Son fishing trip.

  • 5 of 5

I took my 81 year old father on a birthday "father/son" fishing trip. This is a smaller facility with a lot of amenities. I had room to park the boat under the house.. however, it does test your backing ability to twist around the decorative trees in the island of the driveway (not shown in this photo). This house is very near to the state park where we launched. Fishing was a bit slim after a stormy day, but we landed some big fish and cooked them up for a nice birthday dinner. Very enjoyable few days. This is perfect for a small fishing group or a small family.

Forgotten Coast Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for Mickey Mouse, you will not find him here! What you will find is a very unique part of Florida! Having been all over Florida, I found this area to be the most down to earth and friendly. Clean white sand beaches with lots of dolphins and pelicans,great weather too.Port St Joe is a short drive away-Provisions restaurant and the lighthouse tour were favorite stops. The house was very beachy and clean, with the beach a 5 minute walk away.We loved cooking outside on the beer keg grills!The home could use more cupboard space for long term renters. A couple of shelves in the dining room area would be an easy fix.A great place to stay! Mark & Gail,Rochester ,NY.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time! We think this part of Florida is unique too! We agree the house is a bit small, so cupboard space for long term renters can pose an issue. Thanks for your suggestions. Hurry back!

The house was clean, all the amenities working as expected. Easy to park a boat right by the house. Close to beach access and bay access if kayaking.

House was Great

  • 4 of 5

The house was great and in a good location near the park. Loved the wrap around porches. It is close to the beaches but not really within walking distance. The bay was walkable but grassy and muddy, not clear water so not a good place to go to. There were a couple of very good restaurants on the island and some good fishing. There is a beautiful remote beach at st Joes state park but there were also flies that stung you... Heard from a local it was in season for them in October. All In all very happy with the house.
