About Carrie Shevlin
Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love visiting The Cape. The relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the area keep us coming back year after year. I will be managing your stay at Good Fortune and can be a bit of a perfectionist. That's a bonus for you, as I promise that I will do all I can to make your time at The Cape absolutely wonderful. We are confident you will love The Cape as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about our home or the area.
Carrie Shevlin purchased this House in 2012
Why Carrie Shevlin chose Port St. Joe
We visited The Cape for the first time in 2001 and immediately fell in love. The water was perfect, the beaches weren't crowded and we could bring our dog. We especially like the North end of The Cape because it is very quiet. The amazing T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is so close to the house and the dune structure on that beach is like none you have ever seen. It is also a very short walk to Coneheads from our house...ice cream, oysters and cocktails…what could be better?
What makes this House unique
We worked really hard to think about how we could make this house as 'easy' as possible in which to vacation. Just a few things that make Good Fortune pretty special: 2nd Floor Outdoor Shower - Off of the master bathroom there is a private outdoor shower. This is the only 2nd floor outdoor shower on The Cape! Bunk Room - The kids will love their built-in bunk room. Each bunk has an individual light for reading before bed. Amazing Reclaimed Beadboard Ceiling - We love old things and wanted to add some historic touches to our new home. The entire ceiling in the 2nd floor living space is made of reclaimed beadboard from Valdosta, GA. It's beautiful! The only ceiling like it on Cape San Blas is the one at our other home, Beach Camp. Huge Outdoor Shower Under the House - I really don't like my dry things getting wet when I shower in a small outdoor space. We've made our outdoor shower large enough so your clothes and towels never get wet. Quiet Dishwasher - I promise, it's quiet. Large Pantry - Our kitchen has a large, walk-in pantry so that all of your groceries can be stored out of sight. Huge Decks - There are two very large covered decks that span the entire front of our house. You can get a glimpse of the Gulf from the first floor and have an amazing view of the Gulf from the second floor. Both are accessible from the living spaces and the two master bedrooms.

Beautiful home for a large family
Great place, well stocked and furnished for a very reasonable price. Our family has been coming here for several years and this is by far the best house we have rented.
I am just thrilled that you described Good Fortune as the best house you have stayed in at Cape San Blas. My team and I work really hard to ensure that my homes are in excellent condition and that my guests have an incredible vacation. I look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Good Fortune again soon.
Perfect Vacation Getaway!
First of all, this house is set up to maximize your vacation experience. Privacy when needed, 2 areas within the walls to socialize, comfortable bedrooms and the kitchen - equipped to handle any meal. All this and a wonderful balcony to enjoy your views of the ocean. In the event we return to the area, we will be staying at Good Fortune.
I am so happy that enjoyed staying at Good Fortune and that you found it perfect for your family. I look forward to welcoming you back to our home soon!
Beautiful home which has everything needed for a great vacation.
Owners have gone above and beyond to provide renters with everything you might need while on vacation. Wife felt home was absolutely the best stocked and furnished home we have rented anywhere in Florida. Carrie has done a wonderful job finding unique treasures to decorate, making this truly feel like your sharing a friends home. Pictures really can’t show you all that has gone into making this an exceptional home. Highly recommend Good Fortune for your next trip to the forgotten coast.
Thank you so much for your review! I was thrilled to welcome you to our home for the New Year Holiday and I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you too for being such great guests. We hope to welcome you back to Good Fortune again soon.
