About Murray & Emma

we owned an all natural pet food store/boutique in Tallahassee, have 3 dogs that always share this house with us, and support pet adoption causes.

Murray & Emma purchased this house in 2010

Why Murray & Emma chose Florida Main North West

the most pet friendly beach in Florida, beautiful unspoilt beaches, quiet location.

We bought this place to enjoy ourselves, spent a year renovating it to be comfortable and inviting. We want to share this wonderful place with other appreciating pet owners.

What makes this house unique

taking the dogs for an early morning romp on the beach, sipping cocktails whilst watching the fabulous sunsets.

Relaxing and warm February 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Sandy Paws! It is so very pet friendly and clean! The pups lost a few pounds with all their exercise and up and down the stairs but that is a good thing! The bikes were great and we used them every day. Beach is close for walking and great sunsets and we saw dolphins on several occasions from the beach. The house has everything you could ask for, nice linens, privacy, and bathrooms and showers are very nice. Cable TV and Netflix is good, thanks! We also appreciated the outside shower for beach sand. We saw deer and birds and watched the jets overhead from the Airforce base. The Trading Post and Scallop Cove and beach shop are about 3 miles and have most everything you could need. The shrimp and scallops at Cone Heads were delicious--some of the best we had during the whole month and they are walking distance. In Port St. Joe we liked Provisions best for a nice dinner. Great Place! Hoping to go back! Thanks Murray and Emma!

We had a wonderful time staying here, not only is it conveniently located to both the bay and the beach they have many items for your use. It is in a very peaceful location, but plenty to do if you like to keep busy. You really only need to bring the clothes you need to wear. There are plenty of beach chairs, toys, boards and the use of a golf cart to get it all where you want to go. You really do not need to spend anymore money to enjoy your stay. I was there with my four grown children plus two sufficient others and three dogs, we had plenty to do together and separate. It was a a very good vacation.

Despite Tropical Storm Cindy's best efforts, we had a great week at Sandy Paw's. The home was in a great location and well equipped. Loved the huge washer and dryer! Very comfortable for our large family and two dogs.

We had one night with friends staying over before a chartered fishing trip with Lady J Charters (Jacob and Danny Tankersley absolutely ROCK!) in St. Joe, one night alone, and two nights with all the kids! Couldn't have been better.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! 7 of us and 2 dogs stayed three nights and had a great time! Plenty of room for everyone and a close walk to the beach. The golf car was very helpful and fun to drive.

The only negative thing I could say was the noise. On the left side a new house is being built and on the right side the road was paved. We didn't spend much time at the house during the day so it wasn't really an issue.

We would definitely stay there again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you guys for the review, we really did not know the schedule for the construction as they fit in work when supplies arrive and it could have been anytime within the next 6 months. The road was completely out of the blue and the county certainly don't think to give locals a heads up! I guess they thought it would be over in a day!

Great place if there were no construction noise or road construction shaking the house.

  • 3 of 5

Great place to stay. Very dog/baby friendly. Everything we needed and close to the beach. Would have loved to have known that I would be waking up to construction right outside my window early each morning. This was never mentioned when reservations were made , so be sure and ask before you reserve this property. It's hard to get a baby to take a nap when the whole house is shaking. Again, be sure to ask before you reserve. So glad I saved for a year for this........

Owner's Response: So sorry that you had to endure the road paving, , this was a county decision to pave the road and we had no advance warning that this was to take place and indeed when. The county sets its own schedules and the 1st we heard of it was when it happened. We have issued a nominal refund as a courtesy for your inconvenience.

Damage Protection $59
Tax Rate 12.0%

winter rates are $85 per night for stays of 28 days or more plus applicable fees.

Early in 2016, VRBO introduced a service fee which ranges from 4-9% ... this is a VRBO fee and has nothing to do with us and to be honest is simply a money maker for them. Any feedback regarding this fee should be directed to VRBO.
