About Camille Lakey
I grew up a couple of hours from here and have always loved the beach. My husband and I always dreamed of having a Florida getaway and now our kids have the greatest playground ever! We never get tired of the beauty and nature that we find in this area.
Camille Lakey purchased this House in 2014
Why Camille Lakey chose Port St. Joe
We fell in love with this area the first time we visited. Having grown up in the Florida Panhandle it reminded me of "old Florida" before all of the high rises and over development. The views this house offered of the beach told us we wanted to renovate this home and have this as our "get away" .
What makes this House unique
We love the location of this property. It is on a quiet end of the beach and offers privacy since one side is wooded. It was a labor of love, but we knew our family would make a lot of memories here. It is the ultimate in relaxation. The massive deck offers the perfect place to have your morning coffee or watch the sunset. Once you see the views, it is hard not to feel relaxed.

Perfect home for our family vacation!
The Aquagon was the perfect place for our extended family vacation. We had multiple couples, teenagers, and young children for the entire week and there was plenty of room everyone! The house was very clean, well maintained, and equipped with everything we could need. The location was great, close to restaurants and stores but far enough that the beach was almost all ours! The beach equipment was such a nice amenity. We really appreciated not having to pack and bring our own beach umbrellas, chairs, wagon, etc.
Camille was WONDERFUL throughout the entire process. From the moment we made the reservation, and until we checked out, she was always available for questions or concerns. She went above and beyond, multiple times, to make sure our stay was perfect! We really appreciate all of her help!
The only thing that could use improvement would be the internet connection. One of the adults had to work during our trip and he had trouble keeping a strong connection when the teenagers were on their phones or if someone was watching Netflix during a rainstorm. It wasn't too big of a deal though. If he hadn't been working, we wouldn't have noticed the issue.
All in all, we are so happy we chose the Aquagon! It was so comfortable and just perfect for our time away. We are already planning another visit!
best view ever
The house was well maintained and spacious. It is on a busy road but beach access is just across the street and the beach is never crowded. The panoramic view is just incredible. We would definitely stay here again!
The view is incredible, isn't it?
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found everything to be well maintained. We work hard to keep everything very clean and in proper working order.
Beach front roads are often busier at times but have the best views! There are plans in the works for a new road that will divert non-beach traffic. This will make our stretch of the beach even more private in the future!
We are happy you will consider staying with us again!
Our July Vacation
My family stayed here for a week. The home was lovely, spacious and clean to high standards. The living area upstairs was great for the family to gather and play games. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and just lounging on the spacious porch. Beach access is across the street and easy to get to. The owner was gracious and very helpful. She responded without any indication of annoyance to my many questions. A great place to stay.
Thank you so much for letting us know about your vacation! I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay at The Aquagon. We strive to make sure the guests have a pleasurable stay and are always happy to answer questions We look forward to having you stay with us again!
Well furnished house for 14. Good view. Close to state park and other beaches.
Thanks for letting us know that our home met the needs of your guests and that you enjoyed the location! We appreciate you choosing The Aquagon for your family vacation. We too, think the view is pretty spectacular! Thanks again!
Beautiful Home with Plenty of Room
Our family stay included the great-grandparents, our three daughters with their husbands and two granddaughters. There were 14 in our party and plenty of room for everyone. During our vacation week, we experienced several days of tropical storms and tornado threats. Although the ocean was in turmoil and brackish during our stay, the home was very roomy, comfortable and the open concept was perfect for several days of indoor bonding. If you plan to stay in Port St. Joe, this home is excellent. It has everything you need, very clean and comfortable beds. Also, we never ran out of hot water! The floor plan upstairs and down are perfect, especially, the multiple entries and exists up and down. The Internet connection worked the whole time we were there and we never lost power during the storms. I would return to this vacation rental without any hesitation and recommend this home. Camille is very responsive to all your questions whether they are concerning the home or activities in the area. Thanks to Camille for making this vacation rental a home away from home!
Thank you for letting us know that our home became your "home away from home" during your stay. We work hard to provide that feeling for our guests.
Sorry that the weather didn't cooperate for your vacation but we are pleased to know that you were comfortable during your stay. We sincerely hope you will visit us again!
fantastic family getaway
We went for a family reunion for one week in June. location is just perfect! Beach across the street, easy accessibility to grocery, restaurants and local shops. The Aquagon was comfy and clean. The owners did a great job with this place. Plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, chairs tvs. Beach was quiet and easy to get to. I only have two suggestions a few larger pans. Pans were a little small to cook for 10-15 people. Maybe getting a recycle trash or an extra trash can. We filled ours so fast even with two trash pick ups during the week. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for taking the time to give us feedback ! We are happy you enjoyed our home and our location. Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, our area doesn't offer recycling yet but we are working with them trying to provide better services to our guests.
We enjoyed having your family stay with us and hope to see you again soon!
Our home is the last house before you head into Windmark Beach area. Centrally located between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe. You choose how you want to spend your vacation....do as little or as much as you like. Our white sandy beaches offer everything you expect but tend to have less undertow because of the position of the Cape. This makes a nice place for children to play. Dolphin sightings are common . Besides the beaches, you can book fishing or scalloping trips(during season), rents kayaks, see the beach by horseback or find numerous places to shop for antiques and coastal décor . Port St. Joe offers lovely parks, walking trails and history. Panama City is a 45 minute drive if you want to shop/dine at your larger venues. It makes for a nice day but you will be happy to return to the less crowded , relaxed beaches of St. Joe!
