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 2013

Why Murray & Emma chose Port St. Joe

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

We bought a place - sandy paws - to enjoy ourselves, spent a year renovating it to be comfortable and inviting. However it turned out that it was rented out so much to pet lovers that we couldn't find time to use it ourselves.

So when this smaller place became available we decided to buy it for ourselves and only periodically rent it to pet lovers. 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.

Stay at Salty Paws

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to the Forgotten Coast and our stay at Salty Paws was fabulous. What a dog friendly home (but you do have to watch out for the burrs in the yard). We will long remember our hikes in the Park, fresh seafood, great bike rides, day trips to Pt St Joe and Apalachicola, beautiful beaches, cozy screened in porch, and watching the most gorgeous sunsets with a fire on the beach. We definitely plan to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kirk for your comments, removing the sand burrs are a constant battle on the cape, but we are reducing them all the time and this is one fight we will win! fortunately they are seasonal but soon they will be history.

Loved It !!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank You so much for sharing your home with us. And Thank You Thank You for working with us, and working us in after we found out our rented place had been double booked, just days before we were to head down.

The house is Fabulous, Clean, all around enjoyable, even though we basically only slept and showered there. To much to see and explore for our first trip to this area.

Fun in the sun AND Hurricane (Tropical storm) Nate

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. The owners really are top notch, helpful, flexible and personable. This house has everything you need for your beach trip: paper products, beach equipment, laundry, and fresh new appliances. I never saw even one bug in the house. The ac works great. The house was perfectly clean. We’ll be back!!!

Second Stay!

  • 4 of 5

This owner's three properties are the dog-friendliest rentals I've seen on the Cape. The fenced yards and gated porches let me and my big mutt relax and enjoy!

Perfect for dogs!

  • 4 of 5

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed being able to simply open the door and let our fur babies out. The fenced in yard gave us a huge sense of security. Close to the beach, close enough to restaurants & a grocery store. We loved it.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $59
cleaning fee $135 + 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.
