About Dawn Lounsbury

John and Dawn have been enjoying the Cape for the past 20 years and have owned vacation rentals on the Cape for the past 14. We have lived full time on Cape San Blas for 2 years and manage our own properties and a few others. We raised our two sons in St Louis Mo. Our rentals are set up the same as our own home and we hope you will make them your home away from home.

Dawn Lounsbury purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Dawn Lounsbury chose Florida Main North West

Secluded with St. Joe Bay views and shallow water access. Relax on the screen porch in a comfy rocker.

What makes this cabin unique

Beach and Bay access.

The bay is very shallow so a boat would need to be anchored very far out. Kayaks or paddle boards would be recommended.

double kayak is available for an additional fee.

Absolutely Wonderful! Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Bay Hammock. Everything was perfect, start to finish. The beach house is perfectly furnished, with everything and more you need for a perfect vacation. Much more than we expected. Don't miss a sunset in the kayak. We loved going to the Scollop Republic to listen to music. Great wine and beer on tap. Great restaurants a short distance away. We loved taking our dogs to the beach and walking them through the beautiful pine trees to the Bay. Can't wait to return to Bay Hammock. Thank you Dawn and John. Your place is awsome.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Bay Hammock. It was even better than the online pictures. The view of the bay is beautiful and only a short walk away. The beach is pretty close just cross the street and walk down a little bit. The beach and cottage are pet friendly so we got to bring our puppy. She loved the beach and sand! The cottage had everything we needed and we would love to come back again.

Bay Hammock was the perfect retreat we needed! View of the Bay was breathtaking! Home is brand new and furnished beautifully with that coastal flare. Very clean and comfortable! Thank you Dawn and John for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

We stayed in this property for a long weekend. The house sits in the middle of the threes in front of the bay side. It is a great location for a couple. Very peaceful and beautiful location.

Bay Hammock Review

  • 5 of 5

Lovely rental home with attention to detail from the granite and stainless steel kitchen, to the screened deck with a beautiful bay view. This home has privacy, as it sits on a deep lot surrounded by pine and palm trees. I would suggest you arrive and then take inventory on what you might need. We ended up taking too much. Try the seafood at Boss Oyster in Apalachicola, a short drive away, or the Indian Pass Raw Oyster Bar. We also enjoyed the Bay Walk along the Port St. Joe Marina. There is plenty of beach access, bike trails and horse back riding on the beach from Salinas Park nearby.

Awesome secluded Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our little dog for two weeks. We really loved this cottage. It was so pretty and comfortable. Romantic and view of the bay just awesome. Easy walking distance to the beach. I went almost everyday with my dog to very wide dog friendly beach. We would highly recommend staying here. The owners were very good to work with and helpful .
