About the property

Two Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Townhome Featuring A Large Deck With Beach View

This is an attached 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhome on the white sands of Mexico Beach near Port St. Joe, Florida. The unit is super clean and sleeps 4 comfortably. There is a balcony deck off the master for early-morning breakfasts overlooking the ocean or nightcaps listening to the waves. Through the glass doors you will find a large deck looking out to the beaches where you can dine anytime or just relax in the sun. Down the stairs and across the street and you're on a walkway ending in warm white sand. Unit amenities: Full Kitchen including microwave, oven, dishwasher, coffee maker; Washer/Dryer in unit; Flat screen TVs in living room and Master, Cable TV, Free WiFi (in unit, not siphoning off some group thing), Free Long Distance calls, Deck furniture on both levels, extra linens for beach, information about the local area. We are unique in that the beach area in front of our unit is comprised of protected dunes and sea turtle nesting grounds. Because of this, no construction of any kind is allowed on the beach, so we will always have the perfect view.

About Mark Hoerrner

Georgia native with strong Florida roots. I grew up during the summers on these beaches. They are part of who I am and I love sharing them with people. Currently live and work in Orlando.

Why Mark Hoerrner chose Port St. Joe

The Valentine House is so named because it was a Valentine's Day present for my grandmother. My grandmother and I would come down to Mexico Beach from her residence in Panama City often. Seeing how much she loved the beach, Grandad bought her the Valentine House. The view was amazing and it was close to two of my Great Aunts, so the location was perfect. Later, we bought two more just like it nearby.

What makes this townhome unique

We are a small rental corporation specializing in delivering a true local beach experience. Want to close the drapes and ignore the world? We're totally fine with that. Want to spend the day looking at the beach and Emerald Coast waters? Great idea. Care to charter a fishing expedition or a guided snorkeling tour? Just a few minutes to Port St. Joe and you're headed for open waters.

I have already received two "system generated" requests to make a review of our stay. I have not replied as yet; not until I send this personal email review to you.

First...the things we liked:

1. The landscaped garden and fence at the rear entrance.

2. The unobstructed view of the Gulf from the large sliding glass doors .

3. The size of the TVs and the great reception...we got to watch a lot for the first three days as Cindy roared outside.

4. The easy access to the beach.

5. Fast internet.

Second...the issues

1. Communication (or the lack of it). I had sent you several messages and emails and received no response. The worse one was the lack of a door code on the day we were leaving. I got the code from the cleaning did respond as we were on the road to the beach. This lack of communication makes you doubt your host.

2. The shower spray would not stay in place since the holding bracket was cracked.

3. One of the chairs on the upper deck had a rusted frame and it broke as my wife sat in it. My 74 year old wife fell on the floor and could have been seriously injured...but is/was OK. I sent this info to you in a message and you did not respond.

4. Some of the instructions were a bit "harsh" as to what happens if you have visitors, don't turn on the dish washer...etc. I know you have people problems with rentals but the language could be softened somewhat.

Amazing View and Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I had a wonderful week here! The beach is not crowded at all. If you are looking for a family beach that is not next to all the crazy teenagers then this is the place for you. Mark was great to work with and always had great communication! The condo was beautiful and super spacious! The location was great as well. The road was easy to cross and the traffic slowed down and was always cautious of people walking! We will be visiting here again!
