About Lasinda McDaniel

We are the McDaniel family from the suburbs of Washington, D.C. My husband grew up in Georgia and I grew up in Alabama. We vacationed with our families on the Gulf growing up. It has always been a dream of ours to own our own beach home on the panhandle of Florida. There quite simply is no other beach that compares. We visited the Cape San Blas area a few years ago and fell in love with the uncrowded beaches and abundant wildlife and natural beauty. We knew then that this is the place we would live someday. We are so thankful our three children will grow up making memories here at the beach. We are happy to share this place with you and your family.

Lasinda McDaniel purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Lasinda McDaniel chose Florida Main North West

We chose this beach home because of the beautiful quite area. And, we loved the idea of having a home located between the historic towns of Port Saint Joe and Apalachicola.

What makes this townhome unique

Our beach home is located directly on the Gulf.....beautiful views and uncrowded beaches...and a Gulf front pool shared by only twelve homes. Our home and beach are dog friendly :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Copied verbatim from our listing for this property at vrbo listing# 468253.

This condo is so clean and well furnished. Everything is so convenient and well selected for the beach. And the beach is just a few steps outside the screened porch. The owner even leaves a welcome basket with food for the first night, morning and snacks. My Shi Tzus loved looking out the porch and people and dog watching. They loved walking on the beach. I recommend this property for anyone who loves the beach. I plan to return next year.

Outstanding Time

  • 5 of 5

We had an outstanding time. Best Rental Ever. I could not get my Garmin to find the address but I called the Port Saint Joe Visitors Center and the lady told me to just add when the Garmin ask for city or state, put city, state and zip. Once I did this the Garmin took me right there. Great wifi service. I loved the beach area.

Loved being on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Great location right on the beach! There was a problem with the staircase to the beach. It has broken and washed away so you had to walk around two house and cross a small bridge and then walk back up to the beach. You could walk down the dunes but was kind of dangerous with a small child. The beach was great and we had perfect weather during our stay! Very peaceful and not an over commercialized area so that was nice. Condo was good! Had all the basics you needed to stay at the beach! Screen doors needed a little attention. Make sure you bring your own beach towels as those are not provided.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! The screen door has already been replced. It took a couple of weeks to locate one that would look good and fit. The stairs are currently being repaired. Thanks so much for your comments. We always welcome them!

Very clean with a well stocked kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Arrival day was stressful. The information that we received did not have the driving instructions. We tried calling the owner a few times but got voicemail. Then we tried the two local contact numbers that we were given, both disconnected. The owner said she will update the numbers. You need directions because the GPS did not take us to the correct house. The home is comfortable and very clean. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, and cooking staples. Very thoughtful to have a welcome basket. We were very glad to have internet service due to the fact that there is no cellular service. We were there during Christmas and able to FaceTime our friends and family. My husband and I took our dog on a "family" vacation and this was a perfect place to be with our dog. The whole area is very quiet, a 20 minute drive took us to the small town of Apalachicola. We enjoyed the excellent restaurants here. The web site photos of the beach are old. Mother nature has totally changed the beach. Due to the bayou running directly in front of the property, it has divided the beach in two. The only way to get to the beach from the house is to walk through the large bayou which was up to my knees (cold in Dec.) There is a very small beach area between the property and the bayou which allows some beach chairs. A local told us this started a few years ago but this year was the worst it has ever been. One of the reasons we chose this area was that they allow bonfires on the beach. We had a perfect Christmas Eve sitting around the fire. My husband and I travel for a living, which is why we chose this area, it's perfect if you want peace and quiet. How could I forget the Oysters! They were awesome, even had some that were smoked grilled. We would like to thank the owners for sharing their lovely property with us. And also thanks for being dog friendly. J,J & R

Owner's Response: Hello, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Cape San Blas is a beautiful area....we really love it there:). The photos of the beach on our listing are not old. The area has experienced some severe late Fall storms and much higher than normal rainfall. This is why the bayou is presently running a varied course with a turn to the west. The bayou changes paths frequently with severe storms. It may wind west for a while and then it will run straight out to the ocean....which is its typical path. Mother Nature likes to play with the bayou:). In the past two years since we have owned the property, the bayou has pushed west after heavy storms maybe six or seven times......but it always recedes to its typical path....straight out to the ocean with no curve in front of Cape Villas. Cell service is indeed limited on the Cape. I have Verizon service and am able to use my cell phone while there....with one or two bars of reception. It really depends on the carrier.....some providers have limited service....others have none at all. We always make sure our guests have the phone number to the beach house before their trip date so that they can leave the number with family and friends just in case their cell phone has no service. Honestly, I have never had anyone tell me that they had any difficulty finding Cape Villas with GPS. I just now checked online with google maps....the property is correctly located on their service. I also checked the google maps app on my cell is also correctly identifying the location of property. I don't know a lot about all the many different GPS providers, but perhaps there is a difference in the results from the various providers? Again, I have never had anyone say that they had difficulty finding Cape Villas....using GPS or otherwise, but I will be more than happy to provide written directions to anyone that would like to have them. Have a great new year and safe travels.)

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse development consisting of 12 units is well maintained although very informal.

The unit was clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and a shared grassy area for grilling using the grill provided.

The pool was uncrowded and the owners provide sun loungers, chairs and other pool / beach equipment. The owners and local property managers were helpful and very responsive.

The best feature of this rental is the location - right on the gulf beach - perfect for evening walks, fishing and just relaxing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again!

Nice beachfront condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this townhouse on the beach at Indian Pass. The amenities supplied by the owners were excellent, beds comfortable and proximity to beach and pool could not be closer. Little things made it nice (icemaker works like a champ, the screened in porches made it possible to enjoy breakfast each day watching the water! Thank you!
