Oaks Rest Barn is stunningly unique Gulf Front home. The name Oaks Rest Barn comes from the family farm in Georgia where the owner grew up. To play tribute to this, there is even reclaimed wood from his grandparents farmhouse on the feature wall in the living and upper king bedroom! The owner put a lot of thought into building this uniquely shaped home so that your family would have a wonderful vacation!
Oaks Rest Barn is a custom-built Gulf front home with a private seasonally heated pool, private boardwalk to the beach, and elevator. It offers views for miles due to its location next Veterans Memorial State Park land. This means that there are no homes directly to the north of the home. There are no highways to cross to get to the beach as this home sits right on the white sugar sand of Beacon Hill. Oaks Rest Barn also has a private boardwalk to the beach. It is one of the easiest and quickest beach accesses in our inventory.
This home features spacious king and queen bedrooms for plenty of space while on vacation. Both the king and queen rooms have built in mini bars, access to private decks with outstanding views.
In addition to the stunning views and amenities within the home, Oaks Rest Barn is also located just a quick drive to Port St Joe and Mexico Beach. This makes for convenient trips for groceries, restaurants, charter adventures, or shopping! You’ll never be more than 10 minutes away from whatever local adventure you’d like to find while vacationing at Oaks Rest Barn.

So thankful for my guests like you! Thank you both for staying with us again and we are looking forward to having you back.
Oak Rest Barn was AWESOME!!
Oak Rest Barn was Awesome!!!This was the best house hands down!!!! The house came well equipped!! We did not eat out the whole time we were there. Thank you all for sharing this house and letting us have the experience of staying here. The pool was great and the elevator was amazing to have. The only problem was we couldn't stay longer!!

Much needed vacation!!
This home is gorgeous and the views and location are even better! We decided to spend spring break in Florida this year and try to forget about COVID! This home provided exactly what we needed. Literally just steps from the beach and when it was too chilly for the ocean, we hopped in the heated pool. The home is beautiful, plenty of room to spread out for all of us. We are already talking about next year back at this house or another one of Teresa’s Beach homes. We just loved the Port St. Joe/Cape San Blas area. No crowds, very laid back and friendly people! Can’t wait to go back!

Spring Break Vacation
This was a very beautiful home right on the gulf. No neighbors to the west and pretty private beach front. This house would be perfect for 2 couples and some kids, or even 3 couples. We went fishing right in front of the house from the shore and caught fish. Port St. Joe is only a few miles away and Mexico Beach is right there. You can see the Cape right across the bay. We also chartered a fishing boat on the bay and caught a lot of fish. There is a grill at the house and we grilled them up. The pool is nice and was heated. If you are looking for a quiet layed back vacation right on the beach this is the house for you. It's quite spacious and would easliy accommodate 8 people. The remodel is excellent, and the elevator works. We hope to go back next year.

Luxury on the beach
We booked Oak's Rest Barn with Teresa's Beach Homes with a little skepticism. After reading the description of the house, we felt weird staying in a triangle shaped home and wondered if we'd made a mistake, but when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised! The house was immaculate and even though triangle shaped, you'd never know if from the inside.Everything was pristine and we were so pleased with all the attention the owner had given to detail. Everything was high end, from dishes to flooring!It took us a few minutes to figure out how to work the elevator, but it was great considering our sixty plus year old knees and sure saved us a lot of time and trouble when checking in with all our luggage and leaving too.The location was spectacular! Right across from the Gulf Country Veterans' Memorial park and it was so close to the water's edge, we only had to walk about 75 to 100 steps!The pool wasn't heated when we were there in December, but my daughter jumped in anyway. Apparently, the owner stops heating after Thanksgiving because the constant running of the pump during winter months can cause burn out.The entire time we were there, we felt so blessed. This was the best beach house we'd ever stayed in and we've stayed in many!We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets every single day while there from the convenience of one of the private decks or while walking along the water's edge.The home is conveniently located between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe. We were able to visit our favorite spots within minutes.We love using Teresa's Beach Homes because of the simple check in and out procedures.If you're looking for a beautiful, luxury beach home, check out Oak's Rest Barn. Yes, it has a funny name and a funny shape, but there's nothing funny about it. It's simply top notch and we'd book there again in a heartbeat.

Myself and 4 of my childhood friends came together to celebrate 3 of us turning 60. Each one of us suffered extreme pain and loss within 10 months. My beautiful son passed away, we had 2 mothers, one father and a beautiful brother all called home to Jesus within 10 months apart. The healing power we all experienced was tremendous. We cried until we laughed and laughed until we cried. The setting and surroundings of this home was amazing. We are grateful to the owners for allowing us to rent their beautiful welcoming home. Thank you so much!

We love MB, so we stayed at Oak rest barn with Teresa beach rentals. The house is absolutely amazing. The beach is amazing. We can't wait to stay with you this next year. Thank you. And I give Teresa beach rentals 5 stars on everything they did for our vacation. Sincerely the Leggo family....

Where do I start? The house is absolutely amazing. Top notch. What's my favorite??? The beautiful décor, the quiet, breathtaking beach, the ocean front pool, the house amenities, MEXICO BEACH, Teresa's Vacation Rentals...I can't pick. I have rented houses all over the globe and this house, this location and this rental company are at the top of my list. I hesitate to give such a glowing review because I don't want others to discover this treasure and then I have more people to share it with. But I do want to see MEXICO BEACH recover and so I have to tell the truth. This vacation was everything I wanted it to be and I will be back. Rent this. You won't be disappointed.

Fabulous place for an extended-family vacation!
This house was just perfect for our family vacation! Our daughter, son-in-law and their three kids came with us, and we spent a great week. The house is just the right size - we took the top floor (oh so private!), the kids and grandkids had the second floor (the grands LOVED the bunk beds!), and we all shared the main floor living and kitchen area. Spent our days either on the beach or in the pool (or both!) The beach was amazingly quiet and beautiful, with plenty of shells. Groceries and sundries are available nearby (Dollar General) or in Port St. Joe (a short drive away). Ate amazing pizza at Joe Mama's Wood Fired Pizza in Port St. Joe, followed up by ice cream sundaes at Shoobie's, just a short walk away. And Terri and Teresa were awesome both before and during our vacation making sure everything was just right. I sure hope we can come back soon!!

Perfect location, beautiful beach house
Oaks Rest Barn is a lovely beach front home. The decor is definitely Top Hat and it is a very short walk to the beach. We had 2 grandchildren with us and if you have kids, you know all of the things you have to haul to the beach (and collect at the end of the day) so this really made it easy to carry a tent, chairs, cooler and toys. Having an elevator was soooo convenient for taking suitcases and groceries up. The bedrooms were comfortable for the kids and their parents and the master suite on the top floor was heaven! I’d certainly rent this again and would highly recommend it.

Family vacation took on a whole new meaning...
The week our family spent in Mexico Beach at Oaks Rest Barn was the most memorable week we have had in a long time. None of us wanted the week to end. This home is absolutely perfect, from the amazing decor, well stocked kitchen, the pool and the location... it was more than we could have ever asked for. You just get a feeling of being at home and being content. Honestly, all you need to bring is swim suits, beach towels, a couple of lounging outfits and PJ's because you will not want to leave once you arrive. We look forward to many more family vacations spent at Oaks Rest Barn.

Absolutely Gorgeous Home!!!!
The owner Oaks Rest Barn has put nothing but quality into this home. The attention to detail is obvious as he has thought of every convenience of your home and put it in his beach home. It’s beautifully decorated, equipped with an elevator, heated pool, private boardwalk to the beach, large closets, large showers, large laundry room, and a huge island for the family to gather around. I honestly can not think of anything that could make this place any better.Terri Pierce with Theresa’s Beach Homes was amazing! She stayed in constant contact and answered all of my questions. She kept us informed of any issues that MIGHT arise (although we didn’t have any) and how to handle them.We will definitely be back to this home!

Can’t Wait To Stay Again
We arrived the Sunday before Hurricane Michael hit. We had 2 wonderful days at this property. Everything was just as described. This property was perfect. From the pool to the ease of getting to the top floor with the elevator. We have stayed at several properties in the Cape San Blas area. Most were stripped and only came stocked with what was described. Oaks Rest had more amenities and items than we needed. The beach was fabulous and right outside the door. We were only a few minutes from grocery stores and restaurants. It truly is the perfect location and house. For a family vacation where you want to relax and enjoy the beach.When the evacuation notice was issued Teresa and her staff were amazing with communication. We never felt uninformed. They followed up with us well after our stay was over. They checked in on us and made sure we were safe. I can’t say enough about this group. They feel more like family now than a property manager.We can’t wait to book again for this fall.

April, I hate that you only got some of your vacation but I am so happy at how easy it was to work with everyone during the evacuation. I hope that you will return and experience a full week at ORB!
Beautiful Home. Hope it is still there after Hurricane Michael
The Home is beautiful. We loved everything about it. Only thing that happened (Not you fault) was the "Red" Tide came in. Lots of dead fish and eels on the beach. We left the "Barn" Sunday morning 7 Oct 18. We knew there was a possibility of a storm coming into the Gulf of Mexico but had no idea what it would become. We just hope and pray that everyone we met and encountered during out stay is safe. We also hope the Barn made it through the storm.

Great house on the beach!
Really enjoyed our stay at this house on the beach. Very clean and new with lots of amenities. Kitchen was well-stocked with upscale cookware and serving dishes. Beautiful views of the ocean and quiet beachfront on the multiple decks and or from the wide windows. Pool perfect for cooling off just a short walk from the beach.
Stayed: September 2018 Submitted: October 01, 2018
This rental is top notch! The house is perfect for small families! We had a wonderful time and the location was perfect! The kitchen is supplied with everything you could want & more! High grade appliances, cookware & dishes make cooking fun & less stressful. The beds all slept great and sitting on the decks were one of our favorite pastimes! The location is great with only a very short drive to awesome shopping & restaurants! We will definitely look at staying here again!
