About Reba Wilkerson

I was born and raised in Panama City, we found this little piece of heaven a little further down the coast. We love it and so do our grandchildren.

Reba Wilkerson purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Reba Wilkerson chose Port St. Joe

Although it is not right on the water it is a easy walk, we feel safe and it is a nice neighborhood. Beaches in St. Joe are also dog friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

It does have a fenced in yard and we love dogs so small pets are welcome if they are well behaved. It has a big deck, and a screened in back porch. with washer and dryer.

We loved the location and the house was the perfect size for our group. It was wonderful to be able to walk to the beach. We really appreciated the wagon and umbrellas too! We made great use of the open kitchen and dining area. The hot tub is an excellent way to relax in the evenings! Thanks for a fun week at your house!

Very nice beach home with all the amenities. Fenced in back yard was a plus for our fur babies.

We really enjoyed the stay and would love to stay there again . Very spacious and has all amenities that you need. Also has a fenced in yard for privacy and for the fur babies to enjoy some outside time as well. Highly recommend this beach home.

Cottage was clean , neat, nicely decorated

House was nice, odd layout but very user friendly. Too bad Tv in second bedroom not working for regular TV. Wi Fi very spotty, had to travel to library to complete school work. Reba very responsive to calls and messages.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time and the place was great. I agree with other individuals reviews in that the mattress in the middle bedroom needs to be changed and the twin beds in the back bedroom only have Bunkie type mattresses. The adult sleeping in the back bedroom opted for the couch the second night. The hot tub was great and we really had a fun time. The fenced in yard with the gate that closes is great for kids or pets. I would recommend staying here.

Quaint and Cozy

  • 4 of 5

Nice little Beach Theme Cottage. Bathroom's are kind of small but was expecting that based on previous reviews. The plus for us was the fenced in yard for our dog and the hot tub! Unfortunately we were there during a cold snap between Christmas and New Years. Gas was not on to the furnace in the kitchen area, but why would it be? It's Florida. We made due with the electric heaters, fireplace, and blankets. Walk to the beach was manageable, but we like to walk. If it had been warmer we would have walked it more.

Reba was great and answered every question we had and tried to help us out when we locked ourselves out one night! It was definitely "An Adventure". The front door lock is a little tricky so be careful if you stay here so you don't have to think like a Burglar like we did one night.

This was our second trip to the area and we love the laid back atmosphere and all the great Seafood Joints.

Car: recommended

Location is a short walk to the Beach, the beach has lots of privacy and a great walk to nearby Windmark. You will be about 20 miles from Apalachacola, I recommend a day trip, shopping and great seafood. Mexico Beach also has lots of dining and drinking options available.
