Why Kids Love It
Kids just love Mexico Beach and the surrounding area. The wide beach offers so much for them to do, beach chairs and toys are provided-all ready to go! Hunt for fiddler crabs, drop a line in the surf, build a sand castle, they won't run out of things to do!
Play ground, tennis and basketball court only short drive - safe to let your kids out to play.
Mexico Beach is a nature lover’s paradise. Many bird species can be found in Mexico Beach. Look around and you'll probably see osprey, bald eagles, pelicans, herons and egrets. At least five species of sea turtles can be found in our area. Loggerhead turtle hatchlings come out in the late summer. Try to spot dolphins as they dive through the waves all year long. Sea turtles, urchins, starfish, crabs, and sand dollars are abundant here as well.
If you are looking for that perfect souvenir, a unique piece of artwork to remind you of your fantastic vacation in Mexico Beach, come explore the eclectic collection of locally owned shops and boutiques of Mexico Beach and nearby Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Also, St. Joseph Bay Golf Club, just to the east of Port St. Joe, offers 18 holes of challenging play.

About the owner: Fell in love with Mexico Beach staying at cousins one street over, you will too!
We bought in 2014 to give our kids a familiar place to grow up and experience the ocean. We call Atlanta home but if kids move away, we want to stay in Mexico Beach!
Why this property? Called Mayberry by the Sea for a reason, a small town feel, local business owners, feel safe at all times. Beach to yourself most of the time except summer break but even then not crowded. Owners on each side do not rent their place so peace and quiet is in store. We mostly rebuilt this unit ourselves after hurricane Michael, it is a smart house, allows your phone to connect to the T.V. and stereo system with wall speakers playing your favorite tunes.
Frequently Asked Questions

Relaxing getaway with excellent accommodations
This has been our perfect vacation condo for 3 years. The beach is beautiful, the quiet location, and amazing sunsets are so calming. Bring your suitcase and settle in! If you come once you will be ready to return.

My boys(16-13) and I stayed for two weeks in this awesome townhouse. It was super clean and beautifully furnished with everything you could need. My boys said this was their favorite vacation ever! We can’t wait to come back.

So glad you enjoyed our place and the area Lisa!! We will continue to do our best to keep adding toys and supplies. Thank you!!
Beautiful condo and location; perfect vacation!
Where to begin? Of the places I've rented for a vacation, would I rent this place again? YES! The condo was very nicely maintained, excellent appliances, comfortable beds and furnishings, plus beach chairs & toys (you'll need an umbrella and beach towels), a gas grill filled with gas, nice washer and dryer and dish washer. I have no complaints. Chris was great to work with. We had an internet outage and he called the ISP on our behalf to find out the status. We brought our Roku and was able to use it there. Overall bandwidth isn't fast, but this is not a reflection on the condo or its owner. I bring it up only for those that want/have to do some work while away (hey it happens!). In connecting to VPN's and such for work, prepare yourself for a small struggle, especially if you work for a university. Just an FYI for expectation. For those that want to remain unplugged as it were, you can't go wrong renting here. The place is awesome and a stone's throw to a gorgeous beach! Love, love, love this place and will absolutely rent again.

Thank you again April, I’m so glad you enjoyed yourself!!
I want to Set Sail again!
Great townhome just a short walk to the beach. The beach chairs, carts, boogie boards, and sand toys that were provided made packing so much easier. I am ready to go back (I just left)! I definitely recommend.

BEST vacation spot!
This is our family favorite vacation spot! The kids LOVE to ride bikes around the neighborhood, but mostly to the beach! The people in the area and very welcoming and kind! Had our Honeymoon here in 2016 and plan to return for our 5th anniversary, April 23rd! The owner is very generous to have beach toys and such out for others to use! So peaceful to relax on this quiet beach with a cocktail in hand and watching the kids play in a safe environment. 100% recommend!!

Perfect family Vacation
We spent an extended weekend in this beautiful condo with our children and grandchildren- 6 in all with plenty of room, and lots to do. Shops nearby within walking distance, large kitchen and outdoor grill for family dinners, and the most breathtaking sunset on the white sand beach. A perfect vacation!!
