Guestbook comments from the host:
The moment we drove up to the house we knew it was something special! Opened the door and was immediately in awe! This immaculate and well furnished home was our private oasis for the week and we absolutely relaxed felt comfortable and enjoyed our first time vacation to the Cape! Close to beach, Port Saint Joe and even Apalachicola! Only negative there was a small rental next door that you have to share the private dock with. Other than that peaceful perfect!
The stay at Twin Gables was phenomenal. A lovely home in a lovely setting. It was wonderful for all of us. Please send our compliments and deepest gratitude to the owners - perfect family get away.
What a wonderful and unforgettable stay we had at the Twin Gables beach house! The resort feel of the place was enhanced by the airy, spacious, and clean interiors that created a truly relaxing getaway for my family of four. We loved the seclusion and nature all around, but also being within walking distance to the beach, a park with pickleball courts, and a terrific smokehouse restaurant. My tween loved taking over the bunkroom and the pool (still too chilly in March for the adults though); and I loved drinking my coffee in front of the large picture window each morning. All in all, our stay at this beach house was nothing short of magical, and we cannot wait to come back soon!
