Guestbook comments from the manager

We so enjoyed staying with y'all this year! The house was awesome! The

kitchen ware was great, we eat good and eat at home due to the late hour we

get in from fishing. All I needed was a metal pan to cook yeast rolls in

but the cast iron pan worked just fine. Your shell collection downstairs is

awesome as well as your cleaning lady. Take care, God Bless and hope y'all

have an amazing summer

Relax at the beach, enjoy the birds and dolphins, catch a fish, hang out in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Southern Tide is a perfect place to enjoy some downtime and play at the beach. A short, easy walk to an uncrowded beach, this house is well equipped and well placed in a beach front neighborhood. Our hosts were quick to respond and helpful. This is the second time we have rented this house and we will be back.

A Norman Rockwell Independence Day, a walk on the wild side

  • 4 of 5

Southerntide was a lifesaver as we had to scramble to find accommodates in our preferred area, Indian Pass, for our July 2016 vacation. We had a break from the big family gathering so we didn't need the massive beachfront house that sleeps two dozen. What we found was a great refuge just a football field away (very flat walk, too) from the beach.

HOUSE: Very nicely done with plenty of room for the four of us (two adults, two 16-year-old boys). Everything we needed was there (upstairs, two stories). Clean, comfortable. We'd visit again.

-What would we recommend be changed: In the next remodel, swap the laundry upstairs for a second bathroom (which was on the ground floor). Also, add at least two ceiling fans on the front porch. Nice beach view but, in early July, no significant breeze.

-Ground floor: great fish cleaning station, 'outdoor' shower and second bathroom. Nice drive-under parking, too, to keep the vehicles cool.

AMENITIES: You have to go over Independence Day to witness the water parade that starts at the oyster bar and winds through the neighborhood. Simple. Silly. Fun. Also: wild life. On a charter boat tour closer to Appalachicola, I saw a first in my 61 years -- a family of dolphin swimming in the bay and, 100 yards later, a four-foot gator making his/her way to St. Vincent Island. Plenty of fish, from cats to croakers to a four-foot hammerhead shark (caught while kayak fishing 50 yards off shore). The location is fine for getting to St. Joe for food. The oyster bar is as good as you've heard; just a huge crowd and bring the credit card. Well worth it, though.

BOTTOM LINE: We'd go back tomorrow.
