**Note: As of April 16. 2016 we are changing to a Sunday to Sunday rental***

**Convenient location close to town but feels like the middle of nowhere! Fantastic Views**

Beach/water Front 3 BR, 2 full baths and 1 half bath home. Cottage by the Sea is located at the mouth of the bay in the Beaches area making it just minutes from shopping and dining in both Port St Joe and Mexico Beach. This home is located next to Windmark Beach in a very quiet area where there are very few homes and almost no traffic.

Being located next to Windmark allows for miles of paved trails and boardwalks for bike riding and walking with no vehicle traffic. The views will take your breath away.

Cottage by the Sea has a great layout. The first level up from the entry has 3 brms - 1 gulf front king with private full bath and 1 gulf front queen room, both of these rooms have sliding glass doors that lead out to a water front deck. The 3rd bedroom has 2 Bunks, the queen and bunk room share a full bath in the hallway. The Laundry area is also located on this level.

The next level is your open living, dining and kitchen which leads out to a large covered deck overlooking the water from the Gulf of Mexico and the front of the home has lots of glass so the water and sunset views can be enjoyed inside as well as on the decks. There is also a 1/2 bath on this floor.

The place to unwind!

  • 4 of 5

Cottage by the Sea is the place to unwind! I picked this spot because I wanted to take my new fishing kayak out in the bay for some exercise and adventure. I rented another ocean kayak from 'No Worries' at Wind Mark Beach for my daughter to tag along with me. We saw so many creatures like rays, horseshoe crabs, starfish and even a couple of small sharks. We paddled a couple of miles each direction in the mornings before the wind picked up. The heated pool was perfect for the kids and me after seeing the sharks :O After a couple of days, we got the hang of the kitchen being on the top floor, and better utilized our trips up and down the steps. I wouldn't change the layout because the view from the top floor was awesome and it was convenient to watch the sunset each night on the covered deck. The small beach area out front was very pretty and wonderfully secluded. It was a short peaceful walk to Wind Mark bike/walking trail and we had fun exploring their unique resort. It was only an hours drive over to Panama City for an afternoon of Coconut Creek putt-putt and grand maze. Plus, we wanted to visit Pier Park too. There are some gift and antique shops in Pt. Saint Joe and Mexico Beach and a variety of places to eat. The internet worked well for our high schoolers, who were somewhat bored, but that is really what we needed.....to unwind.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Cottage by the sea has fired on all four cylinders! We have returned to cottage by the sea with our newly expanded family of 3 adopted boys and the week went by entirely too fast! There was no shortage of activity and the protected waters of the bay provided a safe environment for all water sports. We windsurfer, sailed our hobie 18, fished, paddle boarded, skim boarded, snorkeled and swam in the new pool! This all taking place under the beautiful view of Cape San Blas and it's wonderful sunsets. What's also worth mentioning is the proximity to the amenities of civilization. Both Port St Joe and Mexico Beach are a stones throw away which made our rainy day excursion very pleasant without having to drive too far. We will definately be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Cottage By The Sea!!

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to tell you how much our family enjoyed the cottage by the sea it was well equipped and suited for our family! We loved the location, the home, atmosphere just everything we hope to visit again next summer maybe a little sooner than before. I'm sure you get tons of reviews from others telling you the same thing however we have had rare vacations that literally we didn't need a vacation from this was the ultimate, epic vacation! We are now looking for a house there haha we definitely dream about though! The wildlife was in abundance, and shells! Pray we were as good of renters as you were a renter, was ultimate home away from home:)! Thank you again!!

Cottage by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

An excellent, relaxing and romantic getaway for a week. The cottage was charming: amazing views of sunsets and stars. Well-equipped kitchen for those who love to cook. Easy access to the beach, and we loved the blocked off section of old hwy 98. Perfect for walking the dog when we didn't want her wet and sandy. Next year we will pack the roller blades too.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review and will look forward to having you again. Yes when they cut the old 98 Hwy off and built a new highway 3/4 of a mile behind it left a 1+ mile of paved street cut off to all traffic. Bring the bikes, walk, run, roller blade. I have only seen a couple of people biking that stretch from time to time, it is so quiet and tranquil there. You can also bike/walk in the Windmark community which has beautiful landscaping and homes.

This was our first time to Port St Joe and I have to say this was the most relaxing vacation we've had in a long time and very enjoyable. This rental home is very private, and had everything we needed. Lots of storage space in the kitchen, lots of room. Highly recommended. We did get to see a lot of wildlife.. Starfish, Horseshoe crabs, stingrays and dolphins every day. I also want to add that Terri was an absolute dear in helping us with our stay.
