About Kevin Lazzari

We currently live in the North Metro Atlanta area where we raise our 3 kids. We love the Gulf coast and travel to the Florida white sand beaches frequently. We fish, golf, travel and enjoy life!

Kevin Lazzari purchased this house in 2016

Why Kevin Lazzari chose Port St. Joe

We bought this cottage for our vacation home while living in the Atlanta area. We couldn't get enough of this peaceful, friendly place, so we bought this gulf view home. We have a home in metro Atlanta and have decided to share this cottage with others who have fallen in love with the Gulf and the white sand beaches!

What makes this house unique

We love to walk our dog on the beach, watch our kids swim and play in the sand, ride bikes along the coast, campfires on the beach at night and take the boat out to catch some fish. If we don't feel like cooking, we head to Killer Seafood for nationally-recognized Killer Fish Tacos or a bread bowl full of fresh, local seafood and Award-winning Killer Seafood Sauce. Yum! Or, a trip to Provisions in Port Saint Joe- just a short drive up the coast to the east. Incredible food!

Mexico Beach is home to beautiful, white-sand beaches. Cape San Blas is one beach which has been attracting vacationers for years with its secluded, clear and safe waters. Beach-goers may sit in the sand and relax underneath an umbrella, swim in the ocean or go shelling along the shoreline. For the more adventurous, various rental companies will allow you to rent a surfboard, jet ski or kayak, and parasailing and boating are other popular Mexico Beach activities. While on the beach, keep your eyes open for playful dolphins and even bald eagles in the winter months.

We loved "The Nest"! It is in a quiet neighborhood that is perfect for a restful vacation. It really does have a view of the water from the screened in porch! The wagon was great to carry our stuff to the beach. Thank you for such great memories. The McCool family.

Quaint and quiet, great for a rest and refresher.

  • 5 of 5

This is a really nice place to stay. It is not to touristy at all. Quiet small town feel. Still has stores and shopping and restaurants close by but without the traffic. A very short walk to the beach. Close enough you can hear the ocean. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing vacation at the beach this is the place.

Beautiful Memories at "The Nest"

May 13-May 20-2017

What a perfect vacation! The Beach, the Sunsets, the weather(not one drop of rain)! This was our first trip to Port St Joe/Mexico Beach but will not be our last. My husband and I, sister and brother in law and our fur babies had a Blast! The cottage was comfy and cozy. The screened porch was delightful. We could see the ocean and feel the cool breezes . A very short 2 min walk to the beach. Great location.. The Nest was a wonderful experience! Thank you,Kevin!
