Property description

Cottage is one block or about 200 yards from the kind of wide, white sand beach the Florida panhandle is famous for.
Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? If you want elaborate landscaping, my cottage is not the best for you. The cottage does have a nice open air porch in the front.
Now if you want a home that is on the beach, my cottage is not quite there, yet. Maybe, with global warming, it will be, soon.
Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.

Maximum capacity is 7 or 8 with a king in master, 2 twins in middle bedroom and bunkbed in front bedroom with full on bottom and twin on top.
Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in and ready for your dog to roam free or run around in circles, endlessly chasing it's tail.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy the fresh breeze, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.
You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

The beach a short walk down the street is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I feel responsible to ensure you enjoy your visit when you stay at my vacation rental. I desire to have a home where fond memories are created to last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! . Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beach chairs, wagon, 3 beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.
