Absolutely loved it!!!
We absolutely loved the place!! Port St. Joe is our new favorite! We didn’t have to sacrifice quality in order to bring the dogs along. The condo was fabulous. Way to hot and humid to be able to sit out on the screened in porch but it’s a nice feature for cooler weather. The pool was perfect. I loved having the hose right by the front door to wash away the sand before entering. We will be back. (Never got the lights over the bar to work or the light/fan over the bed so we relied on other lights. No big deal. I saw why others wrote that the couch was dirty, but we kept sheets over it the entire time to catch the dog hair anyway so it wasn’t an issue. You can’t expect perfection in a place that allows pets and this was very close to perfection.) Highly recommend! P Milligan.
Property overall, was well kept and clean.
Salty Dog on the Rocks was clean, nicely decorated, and we'll furnished. It was peaceful and quiet, which is what we wanted.
We enjoyed our stay in the unit. The front porch with its view of the ocean and sea breeze was lovely, as was the pool. The place was clean, except for the sofa cushions, but I covered them with the dog sheet, which is a great idea. However, only one burner of the two-burner electric stove worked, and it had no oven. There was a large toaster oven, but it didn’t work at all. I called Dawn less than 24 hours after we arrived for a 6-day stay to discuss the stove, but she never called me back. I doubt there was much she could do about it on short notice, but she could have at least had the courtesy to return my call.
I'm glad you loved Salty Dog on the Rocks, with a few issues. I always return phone calls with in a few hours. I do not remember getting any call from you regarding your concerns with the property. Since you stayed we have repaired two burners on the cooktop. I did not know the counter oven was not working, but we are having it look into. The sofa has been steamed cleaned. Our policy is to return all phone calls within a few hours unless they are after 6pm then we return them the next day unless there is an emergency then we do everything we can to respond right away.
Everything about this property was pretty excellent. Location, cleanliness, pool, beach access was really great. Our 12 and 10 year old granddaughters loved it!
Two things that bothered all of us. WiFi access in the house was really spotty and the house "creaks" loudly, especially at night. I've never heard anything like it.
Great Spot for Pets!
We had a great time on the Forgotten Coast in this very pet friendly beach house. Our Golden retriever Gilligan loved his complimentary tennis ball! The area is great, all the neighbours were very friendly, the house was clean and stocked with everything we needed. As a pool owner back home, the only downside to me was I felt the extra fees to heat the pool were excessive and could easily be included or discounted to a more realistic fee. All in all it was an excellent stay and would recommend to anyone looking for an excellent place to vacation with their active dog.
I'm glad you loved the area and your fur babies too. Pool heat is very expensive to provide and we try to be very competitive with our fees and do our best to keep our charges as low as possible.
Hope to see you back next year.

Perfect for us!
We found what was so very hard to find in the area, a large place on a lower floor with a very large front screened porch. Excellent beach access for walking and ideal area for biking as well. The private single bedroom was adequate and the washer/dryer and pool would be excellent extras on longer stays.. Just right for our aging dog and my wife and I. We hope to secure for two weeks next year.
Thanks so much for taking the time to give us a review. So glad you liked our hidden area. Let me know when you would like to return.
