About the property

BEACHSIDE 3 bedroom 2 bath outdoor shower, quiet. nearby resturants & grocery

BEACHSIDE classic family cottage, great backyard, private trex decked DUPLEX Sleeps 6. 3 bedroom, 2 bath. NO CROSSING HWY 98 very short walk aprox. 2 minutes and you are on the beach right at the end of the quiet little street. MUST BE AT LEAST 30 YEARS OF AGE. THIS IS A FAMILY ORIENTED RENTAL PROPERTY. ABSOLUTELY NO PETS & NO SMOKING inside the home . 3 bedroom, 1 queen, 2 twin, 1 set new bunkbeds. Linens; sheets, towels, ect. are not supplied. 2 full baths, 1 with tub/shower, 1 shower stall and a fun for the kids outside shower for washing off all that sand.The house is equipped with a full size washer and dryer, dishwasher, cable TV, electric stove, and the other usual amenities that will insure that you have a pleasant and comfortable stay. NO INTERNET SORRY Beautiful large private Trex deck in the back with live oak trees for shade on those sunny days while you grill up some fresh caught shrimp from the Shell Shack just 1/4 mile away or those fresh scallops from St. Joe Bay {10 miles east} or fish you caught surf fishing, pier fishing, kayak fishing or while fishing in the Gulf on the many sunken reefs. But if its the sun you love the beach is only a very short walk. The water is clear, the sand is white as snow, full of shells and there is no crowds on these beaches. Or sit out on your front patio in the shade of the palms on this short quiet street while the kids ride scooters and bikes or play ball with their friends. There are miles of paved walking/biking trails right across the street. If eating great seafood is what you crave then walk right across the street and enjoy the Fish House Restaurant or Mango Marley's or the delicious Beach Pizza. A short 5 minute drive or 30 minute beach walk to our family favorite, Toucans. Right on the beach, have a cocktail while the kids play beach volleyball or play on the playground while you keep and eye on the right from you table. Then you better be hungry and enjoy some awesome seafood, salads, oysters, po'boys. You are also only a 10 minute drive east to Port St. Joe, a cute old port town est in the 1600's, worth the short drive. There, Peppers Mexican Restaurant & Sunset Grill (bayside, unique, $$) are among others that are our favorites dining spots. Check for Port ST. Joe happenings there before you travel.

If sightseeing, cute shops, history, snorkeling, walking, biking, fishing, boating, bird watching, shelling, grilling, eating, watching the sunset, relaxing, playing games, watching a little TV, catching up with friends and family, making happy memories are not your thing then or you've never been to the Forgotten Coast {as it is called} you might need to add it to your Bucket List. Mexico Beach has a large new boat landing too!!! Mexico Beach Pier is only an easy short walk from the house as well.

**Surrounding attractions are: Panama City Beach (30 mi) Mexico Beach Pier, for watching those crazy SHARK FISHERMEN every evening while you eat your ice cream from Tommy T's Ice Cream, St. Joe Marina, must see, Blue Water Outfitters, in Pt. SJ, Port St. Joe, St. Joe Peninsula, St. Vincent's Island, bird watching, Cape San Blas & Light House, Apalachicola

Cute little gem convenient to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is only a few houses from the beach on a quiet little side road. Walk across the street and you have everything you need...coffee shop, seafood restaurant, pizza place, shopping, Ace Hardware, etc. The owners are super sweet and make sure you have what you need. So lucky to have found this wonderful little place! Thank you Meg and her husband for the wonderful hospitality!

"At Last" was perfect. It was roomy, very comfortable and close to the beach. "At Last" perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to the beach was fantastic! When my kids were younger we went to Mexico Beach every summer. Since, they have been on their own we have not made it to the beach, until this year. We wanted to go back to our favorite beach. I found "At Last" on the VRBO site and it was available and I booked it. The process was so easy!

When I arrived I checked out the house and it was wonderful, clean and decorated very nice, I waited for my kids.

My kids arrived and we were so happy to have a place to hang out together, cook, laugh and walk to the beach. Just like old times.

Every once in a while I would go outside on the front side walk and look towards the beach and I could see the water and come back and announce the water is still there! I love the ocean.

We had a wonderful time and what made it special was the ease of the VRBO site and feeling secure that what you see is what you get.

Thank you to all who made it a great beach vacation for my family

Did Not Dissapoint!

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as described! A short walk to Mexico Beach. White sands and emerald waters. I was also a short walk to many other wonderful little gems the quaint town had to offer. We had an amazing family vacation. We will remember our trip to Mexico Beach for a long, long, time.

Comfortable Beach Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Mexico Beach and it was a wonderful experience. The home is portrayed exactly how it is. The rooms are big, everything worked. It is only steps from the beach. The street is quiet and relaxing. All the beds are comfortable, along with the couches. We had a wonderful experience with the owners. They were easy to contact, and always helpful. If you are headed to Mexico Beach, or want a family friendly inexpensive stay at the beach that is well worth the money, then this is definitely the place to stay.
