About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
My Wife Linda and i discovered the 'Forgotten Coast' some time back, thanks to a friend's reccomendation. Ever since we first came to the St. Joe Beach area, we fell in love with its peace, tranquility and relaxed way of life.
Life can be stressfull, and we think its vital to have somewhere to get away from the craziness of everyday life and relax.
If you have a dog or pets, don't forget that Port St Joe was just voted the most pet friendly vacation destination in the United States for 2015.....Spend some time here and you"ll understand why our friends are always welcome in town or on the beach.
We sincerely hope you enjoy our house and will do anything we can to make sure your stay is as memorable as it is relaxing.
Welcome to Pelican Haven......walk on the beach, collect shells, watch the dolphins and the sunsets.....and RELAX..

Sun, Sand, and Surf is why we come to this beach. But there are a lot more things here for you to fall in love with too.
Port St Joe was recently voted the most pet friendly vacation destination in the United States for 2015.
This area is referred to as the forgotten coast as it is unspoiled like Old Florida - free of heavy commercialization. St.Joe Beach is a great place on the panhandle for family and friends to enjoy the beach and wonderful sunshine
Sheltered by St. Joseph Peninsula, Mexico Beach has no UNDERTOW. So the whole family can swim safely, wade, snorkel, and find seashells along the white sandy beaches. These beaches are among the best in the United States. It just doesn’t get much better than this!
A must visit and only thirty minute drive is the quaint, historic fishing village, of Apalachicola. Sports Ilustrated used the beaches of St George Island for their photo shoot, Octobert of 2011. And St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge, in Franklin County, Florida, is an undeveloped barrier island just offshore from the mouth of the Apalachicola River, in the Gulf of Mexico
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I'm a sales manager in North Alabama, and my wife Linda runs an internet business. We have three dogs and two cats and live north of Birmingham AL. We LOVE the beach and come to St Joe beach and Port St Joe any chance we have to get away. We have made many new friends in the area and have the best neighbors in St Joe beach.
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
Its a fairly short drive from most anywhere in the Southeast. The beach is gorgeous, the lifestyle and folks are friendly, relaxed. There are numerous good places to eat, as well as locally caught seafood in abundance. Port St Joe was just voted as the most pet friendly vacation destination in the entire United States for 2015. The towns and beaches are super dog friendly, and its a great bonus to be able to bring your "other" family members along on your vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
After many years staying in hotels, its a different world vacationing in a real home. We have taken great care to furnish this home for our guests, and we have provided many things that we found lacking in other rental homes that we have stayed at over the years. The furniture is nice, clean and comfortable, There are HD, Flatscreen TV's in each room, The mattresses are top quality. We provide quality linens and bath towels. And there is no need to pack a bulky beach towel - we got that covered too! We also decided to provide Directv HD sattelite instead of the local cable service as thats what we have in our home. High speed Wifi internet, Unlimited local and long distance calling is provided. We provide large beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas, a good selection of family friendly DVD's and a great selection of kids toys and games. You are even welcome to use our bikes to cruise the neighborhood and the bike paths. The house has a very private fully fenced large backyard, with an outdoor private shower, and a fully screened porch. There is a gas grill with tools and propane is provided for you - if you are in the mood for a cook-out. The kitchen comes furnished with everything to make your stay easy and relaxed. There is even a coffee bean grinder. A crock pot, toaster oven and a blender. The beach is extremely close. (220 steps from your front door) The Dollar General store is a hop skip and a jump away! It is stocked with grocery items, snacks and (almost anything) else you may need. You can hear the ocean from the house. Port St. Joe is only a ten minute drive, and the Mexico Beach pier is also only a ten minute drive. There are many great places to eat, and the local supermarket in Port St Joe sells great locally caught fish and shrimp if you want to come home and grill out. We love our house at the beach, and we think you will too.
