About Susan Widdersheim

Retired legal assistant.

Susan Widdersheim purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Susan Widdersheim chose Mexico Beach

Sugar Sands will make you feel like you are at home.

What makes this townhome unique

A parking space is directly in front of the unit. If you are planning on bringing your boat, we have a designated area for parking your boat during your stay. Mexico Beach also has a public boat ramp, however, parking your trailer and boat overnight at the ramp is not permitted. My unit is in The Palms of Mexico Beach Complex, which sits back off the road; therefore, it is very quiet and peaceful and you never hear traffic noise.

The Palms also has its own swimming pool which renters are welcome to use. Please read and abide by the Pool Usage Rules located at the Pool House, pool hours 8am - 9pm. There is an access code you will be provided and we ask that you do not share this code with anyone during your visit. Please note that the pool is closed until March, 2017.

Convenient Location & Exceptionally Organization

  • 5 of 5

We loved to be close to town to shop at the IGA and eat at nearby seafood restaurants. A 10 minute drive to the beaches of port st joe was a daily treat for our border collie who got her exercise herding all the waves. These beaches were often empty, especially on weekdays. The condo neighborhood is very friendly and safe. The condo itself had everything you would possibly want. If we go South next winter, we will most definitely rent from the most accommodating hostess on earth!

Wonderful stay at Mexico Beach

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Susan was a delightful host! She responded to my emails promptly with any questions I had. The condo was very clean and decorated beautifully! The beach was an easy walk or bike ride or you can drive, parking at the beach was never a problem. The unit is set up perfectly to share with friends, there is a bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor with two bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. The kitchen also had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here, it was everything the pictures and description said it was!

Toucans and El Governor were great beach bars/restaurants & Shipwreck is a great raw bar/restaurant.

Beautiful Home & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girl's getaway at this location! The house was clean, beautiful, and Susan provided so many amenities like beach umbrellas, towels, etc. It is just about a 2 minute drive from the beach and very close to other restaurants like Mango Marley's and Toucan's. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone.

Fantastic. Neat - Clean --the best we've been to. The biggest surprise, the WELCOME BASKET -- treats, fresh fruit, candy and a bottle of wine. Every thing you need is there. Susan is a wonderful person - she came over to meet our dogs as she has a Papillon mix and we have 2 Papillons. Could not have asked for a better place nor a better hostess. I would recommend this property to everyone. Close to the Gulf Beaches. Wonderful!!
