About Jennifer

We are a family of five from the Atlanta area and we love the outdoors and the beach!! We first traveled to Cape San Blas more than 20 years ago on an anniversary camping trip. We never would have guessed that we would one day own a little piece of the beach that we camped on many years ago.

Jennifer purchased this house in 2014

Why Jennifer chose Port St. Joe

We searched the Florida Gulf Coast for just the right location for our beach house. Cape San Blas is the perfect location with quiet beaches and abundant outdoor activities. We are excited to be able to share our beach house with you.

What makes this house unique

The most striking feature of our home is the view from the living room and kitchen. The bedroom views are pretty terrific, too. But, we were sold when we first walked into the living room and had sweeping views of the gulf. We have spent a great deal of time making this home ours - adding a recreation room, bunk room and pool area.

Great house, walk to the beach was long

  • 4 of 5

We have been going to the cape for over 10 years and this was by far the best house we have stayed at thus far. The price was perfect, the house was well maintained, and the location was very convenient to getting back to 30A.

The only downside to the house was the walk to the beach. We arrived during Hurricane Nate and I believe the existing path to the beach was ruined by storm surge. However, that is definitely no fault to the owner. One recommendation I would make is adding rails to the boardwalk, especially to the middle part where the drop off is 6-8 feet. It was pretty scary trying to make sure our kids weren't wandering off the side while trying to carry beach towels, chairs, and pop up tents. This small change would up my review from 4 stars to 5.

With all that being said the house was fantastic. I would highly recommend taking a walk down the beach to the point which is about 3 miles round trip. The views are absolutely breathtaking.

Owner's Response: We appreciate reviews that are helpful to future guests. Unfortunately, this review has created some confusion for future guests. Just to provide some clarification. There is a path through the sand dunes at the end of our boardwalk. Sometimes, the path changes with the tides and wind. There was no storm surge at our beach and our boardwalk was not damaged in any of the recent storms. It is also important to note that the boardwalk ranges between 1-5 feet above the ground as it crosses sand dunes and wetlands. Many families (including our family with three children) have used the boardwalk without incident or concern for safety. This is an owner managed and operated property. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Beautiful home with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home for a large gathering on the beach. Beautifully decorated, large rooms, wonderful layout. Plenty of towels, kitchen equipment, just about anything one would need. Immediate response to pool pumps not working. We had a wonderful time and look forward to renting this home again. Highly recommend!!!

Beautiful, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Doug and Jennifer were great to work with during our stay. The house was clean, spacious and tidy. The kitchen is stocked really well!! As previously stated there is a little walk to the beach, but it is a lovely walk filled with lots of wildlife and butterflies. Very comfy beds and linens! There were lots of board games and beach gear to enjoy as well. We would go back, and would also recommend.
