Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8 max)

large pet friendly house with fenced yard, all dogs welcome. 7minutes walk to pet friendly beach, bathrooms on 3 levels, large deck, great sunrises with early morning coffee and sunsets with cocktails. state park within 1000 feet for walking, hiking etc.

This property is next door to VRBO# 1185951 with an adjoining walkway which allows both properties to be both private and self contained.

For larger families and groups wanting more space, the 2 properties together have a total of 6 bedrooms (7 by request) and 5 bathrooms, and with the walkway opened up allows free flow between the 2 properties.

Now the bad stuff: This is strictly a non-smoking property, if evidence is found to the contrary, then unfortunately this was your last visit.

Keywords: pet friendly, beach, bay, state park, 4bed, fenced yard, quiet

all of our properties are pet friendly with no pet fees, their #'s are: 382844, 481068, 770771, 844069, 1185951.

We do insist upon the VRBO insurance option as opposed to the refundable deposit, as it's a cleaner process and guests are not out $1500 until any damage issue is resolved.

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 Port St. Joe

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!

Wonderful vacation, wonderful weather, wonderful hosts. The house and amenities were perfect for our visit to the cape this year. Communication with the owners was simple and prompt. Would rent this house again.

Fantastic house in a great location!

Great 4 bedroom house just minutes from the beach. Dog friendly house with fenced in yard and nearby beach was perfect for our Labradoodle Louie!

The PERFECT home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful, from the large fenced in yard for our two babies, spacious living, and quiet location close to the beach. Everything about this home makes you feel like you're still at home. The owners were great in quick communication and so helpful, even before our arrival. It was our first time in the area and we never want to go to another beach again. We are excited to see how the booking pans out for the new addition being added on considering we're already talking about a big family trip for next year.

Oh did I mention...we came back from our trip as an engaged couple!! We had the most perfect trip and we appreciate you sharing your home with us! We look forward to working with y'all again in the future!

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Cape San Blas thanks to the awesome owners of Sandy Paws. This was our first year to bring our dogs, our only regret was that we didn't decide to do it sooner. The entire house and yard has been tailored for pet lovers.

The house itself was one of the best stocked rental homes we have ever encountered. We felt like we were staying at a friend's home. The beds were comfortable for each person even though some usually prefer more firm or softer mattresses. The kitchen had everything we required. Having all the toys at our disposal was great. We got a lot of use out of the bikes and golf cart.

The owners were very fast to respond when we had a concern or a question. They are just nice people.

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
cleaning fee $175 + Tax
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.
