Our 2nd Time Here

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed here. It is the perfect place for a beach vacation. Plenty of room, lot of amenities, very close to the water. It's wonderful. It has everything you need, we didn't leave the Cape all week. Dolphin shows, clear water, fishing--it was a great time. You can sit on the deck and watch the kids play, yet you are close enough to get to them if you need to. I can't say enough about this home. I'll be back!

WHAT A LOVELY HOME !!! We've never stayed at the Cape although we have stayed in Port St. Joe and visited the Cape for a day. This home is everything as stated. Bob f says it all....truly. To be able to sit on the deck and watch the children on the beach was such an added plus traveling with a 2 year old who naps. The amenities were perfect and we lacked nothing. Thank you for opening your home to vacationers like us although I might say that we did wake one morning to a smoke bomb on the back porch which might have come from the children at the joining property (smile). Even being a duplex we had complete privacy and never heard the other vacationers. I would highly recommend this home for a perfect vacation experience at the Cape !!

Best week ever

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming down to the Cape for 10 years and this was the best house we've ever had! Plenty of room for two families of 4 and the ocean views from every room were amazing. There is nothing like being right on the beach and this house puts you there, just steps from the water. I loved the mornings, sunsets and cocktails on the front deck and the explosion of stars in the night sky were not to be missed. The amenities were also fantastic. The beds were big and comfortable, the kitchen was modern and well stocked, and the TV, cable, stereos and WiFi all were glitch free. Pat was great to work with and made us feel welcome and at ease. Hope she has room for us next year. What a wonderful week!

Perfect place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home, and like any place you rent, you are wondering if it will ok: Well it was wonderful! The home is just like the pictures shown, right in front of the water!!. We had breakfast, snacks, lunch outside because the view was fantastic. The kitchen had everything you can ask for. The rooms had plenty of pillows and very comfortable.

Ocean view from every room.

The owners are great: fast response, easy to work with.

Wifi was good at all time of the day.

This area is quiet, lots of families, but not big stores which it made it great ( if you like quiet).

We were 2 families and there was plenty of space. We will be back!!!

Fantastic Home on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we stayed in the area. It was fantastic! The house was perfect for our two families of 6. Plenty of space for all! We loved the furnishing and the extras that were provided. The owners responded very quickly to all questions. The sunsets were exquisite and the dolphin watching was outstanding. We were sad when it was time to go, but we made great memories! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Kind owners

  • 5 of 5

Did a lot of research on this place. Location is awesome, house is roomy, and the beach is spitting distance from the deck! The best part is the owner. You will be renting from someone who truly cares about your experience. She was very responsive to our requests/ questions which was greatly appreciated. Lots of great memories on this trip!

There are three full huge picture windows in the living room overlooking the ocean with unobstructed views. The sun sets directly in front of this home for the most spectacular sunsets you have ever seen. You can literally sit on the front deck while sipping your coffee and watch the dolphins at play OR at the end of the day relax on the covered back porch while enjoying the sunset.

This beach is incredible. Near St George Island which was voted #4 beach in 2012 by Dr. Beach. (St George Island State Park).
