Wonderfully relaxing vacation!
Our stay at Cool Change was absolutely wonderful! The house is beautiful and was neat as a pin. Ken, the owner, took time to personally meet with us shortly after our arrival to be sure everything was OK and to acquaint us with the area. The beach was absolutely beautiful. We will not hesitate to come back to Cool Change in the future! Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay here. It was wonderful to have your lovely family take advantage of all the beauty the Cape has to offer! We hope you do come back again. Let us know...
2nd Stay Here

So happy you got to come back to Cool Change! Please call us if you want to come to again...
Needs updates from Hurricane...
Beach area was like bay water brown in color and cars were driving by constantly on the beach. Water was clearer further drive down. Carpet in house with families having dogs was not a great idea. Beds not comfy and surrounding of home not as picture indicated. Due to Hurricane Michael there was not a lot of places to eat. Best place was Kraft Fish in Port St Joe.
We're sorry you didn't enjoy your time here in Cool Change. Driving on the beach here is a 100 year long tradition and not likely to change. We hope you did not have any unpleasant encounters with drivers on the beach.
Britt we were so happy your family had a great time here. You were wonderful renters and we'd be happy to have you back!
It was the perfect week. We were blessed with 7 days of sunny weather. House is fantastic, so much room for the 3 of us and our dog. We could have easily had more people with us. Short walk to the beach with the most amazing shells and wildlife! First time fishing in an ocean and we were successful! Outdoor shower is great. The gated, non-screened porch was great for our dog who wanted to be outside when we weren't and the screened porches allowed for enjoyment outside without getting bitten up. Ken and Nancy were so helpful and generous. Everything you need is there. I very much appreciated the washer/dryer. I am already thinking about the next time we can go back! Highly recommend beach campfires, stargazing and kayaking in the bay.
We are so glad you had a great time at Cool Change! Your enthusiasm was evident every time we saw you and it was infectious. We hope you do return!!
A very quiet laid-back area with many excellent restaurants within 20 minutes. Easy access to St. Joseph Bay for scalloping or fishing, as well as beachfront surf fishing, bicycling on 14 miles of a bike trail minutes from house, pet friendly beach, two convenience stores minutes away, and a large grocery store 10 miles away. The home is on a dune with excellent views of the Gulf of Mexico.
