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.

Every detail was in order at this beautiful bayside cottage. We enjoyed sunsets from the screened patio, bike rides down the peninsula and kayaking in the bay (bikes and kayak included in rental). The beach is a short walk away. The inside of the cottage is decorated in a clean, modern style and all necessities are provided or listed in the grocery list of things to pack. Great job to the owners and cleaning staff! We love this place.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Bay Hammock!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely adorable and was the perfect size for the two of us, plus our dog, Bandit. The home was very clean and was stocked with necessary supplies such as towels, kitchen essentials, and beach chairs. They even provided dog items including a tennis ball and dog bowls. The back screen porch was perfect to view the bay, especially during rainy mornings. We enjoyed being able to go out back and grab the kayak to row around the bay, and beach access is just a short walk across the road. The outside shower with hot water was great to clean up after spending the day at either, as was the washer and dryer. The location of the cottage is perfect, as it’s easy access to Cape San Blas, Port Saint Joe, and Apalachicola. Thank you so much for sharing your home, Dawn and John, we can't wait to return to Bay Hammock!

Beautiful little home in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely home for two nights and wished we could have stayed much longer. It was the perfect one bedroom / loft home in a secluded area of Cape San Blas. Great kitchen, family room, bed and bath. We particularly loved the screened in porch where we sat each morning enjoying the new day. Highly recommend.
