Perfect location for a great get away.

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the house. So much room for everyone. We had nine people, and never felt crowded. The property was clean, and we will come back in 2017! The screened in back room, was the perfect place for everyone to start their day and make plans. Very pleased!

Spacious home with first floor master suite, walking distance to a beach.

  • 4 of 5

We liked the extra-large family room, and the well-equipped kitchen with granite counters and high-end gas stove. The master BR on the first floor is spacious and quiet, has a large closet, beautiful master bath with spa tub that was like a luxury hotel bathroom. Other BR on the first floor is a walk-through room, but you can shut both doors and guests can walk around the other way through the family room. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a 'vintage' bathroom with a tub and a separate small shower. Very comfortable beds and nice linens in ALL of the bedrooms.

Be aware that the first floor has a few random places with one-step-down, so we were constantly having to watch the little ones to be sure they didn't fall (which of course the baby did once when we couldn't catch him in time). Also, there is no door on the basement stairs. They provide two baby gates so that was helpful. You will find baby gates and a high chair in the basement furnace room.

The washer and dryer are in the basement. There is a low spot at the bottom of the stairs and I hit my head going down to do the laundry so was very reticent to go to the basement during the trip, but laundry has to be done. There is a bedroom in the basement; but the basement has lower ceilings, like a lot of old homes, and just felt like an old basement to me, so I certainly wouldn't sleep there. Teens and 'tweens probably wouldn't mind it though.

We had issues with A/C and electrical, however the homeowner was quick to respond and eager to take care of the issues quickly. I was happy to receive my deposit back very promptly.

You can walk to Tiscornia Beach (a quiet beach area with no public amenities) from the house in about 15-20 minutes. The wagon provided was very helpful in towing the little ones to the beach and just to take them out for a morning walk. You will need to drive to get to Silver Beach, which is a large public beach with lifeguards and nice amenities.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I desperately needed a break from being mommies and wives for a weekend. St. Joseph looked like a fun little town and this home looked perfect for us. Well, I have no idea if St. Joseph is fun because the house was so perfect that most of us never left! It was cozy, comfortable and quiet. We had a fire in the fireplace, played games, read books and RELAXED! We had so much fun that we are trying to find a date that works for us over the summer so we can sit outside. If you need some R&R you could not find a more perfect house!

A Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a great neighborhood. It is as beautiful as the pictures if not more so in person. The beds are so comfortable with high quality linens. The kitchen has everything you could ask for with new appliances. The fireplace and layout of the living room make for a wonderful evenings while the beautiful decor and natural light make the mornings just as charming. You will be very glad you rented this house I am sure.

Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 7 stay at the house over the weekend. The house was very spacious and clean. There was plenty of seating for everyone, and it was a great place for hanging out and catching up. The house was located in a quiet residential neighborhood close to downtown St. Joe's. We didn't make it to the beach, but we did enjoy a few of the wineries in the area.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed recently with extended family of 11 and a baby. Were there for a wedding. So glad I booked this house. Made "hanging out' so much easier and more fun, than 5 hotel rooms. A couple of younger people walked home from downtown, about a 20 minute walk. Beach and pier very close. House was comfortable, clean, well furnished and made for a great stay!
