BEST vacation ever - best view, friendly town

We loved it so much. This is the best place, best view from main floor and wonderful master with screened in porch. Whatever we needed in the house, it was right there. Interior beautiful - almost as gorgeous as view. We have been in a funk since we left. While there, we booked an off-shore fishing trip with Captain Kenny of Doghouse Charters (off-shore) for one day (caught 280 pounds) and then Captain Joe of Kid Mullett Charters (bay). Both were so awesome. Highly, highly recommend both. The house had a paddle board to use - water was like glass. Caught fish right off beach. Ate at the raw bar in Indian Pass. Sat on the deck at house. We all agreed - and we had three generations - that this was the best vacation we ever had and we've been (all of us together) around the world, including Africa, London and Europe, South America, etc.

Wonderful home

We booked this house after our spring break trip to London was canceled due to coronavirus. The homeowner could not have been more accommodating. The home offered a well-equipped kitchen, gorgeous beach front views, and super nice neighbors. This is a beautiful, well-maintained house. We would definitely book it again!

Amazing place.

This house made us feel right at home and the place provided for one of the best vacations ever. The rooms are bright, tastefully decorated, spacious, comfortable, and everything we needed was perfectly in place. The screen porch attached to the master bedroom was my favorite perk...I loved listening to the waves while sleeping on an absolutely divine mattress. There is abundent deck/outdoor space and we enjoyed the fire pit every night. The ocean view is spectacular as we watched an endless parade of dolphins all week. The dune is just one step off the deck and we practically had the beach all to ourselves. Local seafood is absolutely out of this world and the kitchen is equipped for cooking up a storm. We cannot wait to go back.

Excellent Home Away From Home

We stayed here in December and it was the most wonderful experience! I felt right at home. The home is beautiful and very well organized. The information And suggestions left by the owner made the stay very easy going. The kitchen had everything thing needed to make home cooked meals and there are restaurants, groceries store and package stores within quick and easy driving distance. The balcony one each floor allows you to open the doors for the beautiful site of the ocean and a nice comfortable wind while napping or settling in for the night. The beach is right out the back door, less than a Football field away. There were several fires built along the beach at night that gave this beautiful glow throughout the beach. And to top it all off, a visit from a pod of dolphins treated us to the best of Mother Natures beauty. Excellent stay, love the area and I can’t wait to go back!

AMAZING!!!!!!

I have to start the review with saying that I am an extremely picky person. Cleanliness is a BIG DEAL!!! This house was absolutely spotless! I mean spotless. The home is very stocked. We were looking for privacy and this home completely delivered! We absolutely are in love with Port Saint Joe and will certainly return. This home is absolutely lovely and so comfortable! We have been going to the beach for 20 years and this home was certainly one of the most comfortable.The owner was great with communication and even had the air turned down so it would be cool upon our arrival.Love everything about this home and location!

Best place on earth

There's no other place like this! Truly the greatest family vacation spot ever...sitting on the back deck reading a book just steps away from the ocean, soft white sand, peaceful friendly everywhere we went. The house itself is amazing...room for the kids, comfortable, open family room for meals and watching movies, gorgeous views from all of the windows, spacious kitchen and laundry room, modern bathrooms, tasteful decorations, lovely linens throughout...just can't say enough. Can't wait to go back!
