About the property

Brand New 3 BR/2.5 BA Gulf front!Private Boardwalk!Screen Porch!Beach Equipment!

You will not regret getting "Aweigh at Last!"... and, as its name implies, our Gulf front home is just what you need if you are looking for a relaxing get-away in a beautifully decorated home on a pristine, peaceful beach.

We have just completed the finishing touches on our brand new home and you can be one of the first to stay here.

You will love the convenient beach front location with private, ramped boardwalk as well as the variety of amenities inside and out.

Our 3 bedroom, 2 & 1/2 bath home accommodates 6 to 7 people.

There are spectacular views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island from almost every room in the house or from its screened porch & sundeck.

We provide high-quality linens & towels, plush beach towels, beach chairs & other beach equipment; starter supplies of soaps, detergents, paper towels, toilet paper; WiFi, cable, free long-distance and much, much, MORE!


The GROUND LEVEL has ample COVERED PARKING (enough for 3 or 4 cars or boats, depending on size) and is where there is a STORAGE ROOM with a plentiful supply of BEACH EQUIPMENT including: beach chairs & rafts, a beach cart, umbrella, beach toys and much MORE, that are provided for your convenience. There is also an OUTDOOR SHOWER, a FISH SINK & station & outdoor charcoal GRILL.

The PRIVATE BOARDWALK to the beach is completely ramped which makes it easy to roll the beach cart or strollers with little ones directly to the beach.

The FIRST LIVING LEVEL has a large SUN DECK and a SCREENED PORCH that spans the entire front of the home. The screened porch is equipped with dining table and ceiling fans that make it easy to DINE 'AL FRESCO" while enjoying the views of the Gulf and St. Vincents Island... or you may just want to curl up on the porch and read a book or take a nap!

In addition, the first level includes the LIVING AREA with comfortable seating, 42-inch flat-screen TV & stereo; the DINING AREA which has a slate & wood high-top table; a HALF-BATH; and the UTILITY ROOM with full-sized stacked washer & dryer. The fully-equipped KITCHEN has granite counter tops, undermount sink, stainless steel appliances as well as a KUERIG & regular coffee maker, CROCK POT and more!

The TOP LIVING LEVEL has 3 BEDROOMS and 2 FULL BATHS. In addition to its gorgeous Gulf view, the master bedroom has a very comfortable KING BED, 32-inch flat-screen TV & en-suite bath with tile floors and tub/shower combo. The two guest bedrooms have queen beds, ceiling fans and incredible VIEWS OF THE GULF AND ST. VINCENTS ISLAND. The front guest bedroom has a 32-inch flat-screen TV.

To provide for the 7th guest, the full-sized sofa may be made up to sleep on. (There is also an inflatable mattress if you would prefer that instead.)


As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can find a variety of SEASHELLS to collect or just enjoy watching the DOLPHINS swimming by or EAGLES and OSPREY scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, sunbathing or fishing in the surf are always a favorite, too.

Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, - a great place for families with children, a couples romantic retreat or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!

You may want to rent a bike or golf cart and cruise quietly through the streets or on the beach. HORSEBACK RIDING on the beach can also be conveniently arranged. There are also KAYAKS to rent if you would like to paddle to nearby St. Vincents Island.

Dinner is right out your door: you can FISH OR CRAB from the shore. SCALLOPING in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies can be enjoyed on your vacation or frozen for later when you return home.

In addition, the famous INDIAN PASS RAW BAR is just a couple of miles up the road where you can enjoy the area's delicious oysters, other seafood and a cold drink. Weekends at the Raw Bar often feature outdoor live entertainment and dancing.

Our area is reminiscent of 'Old Florida.' There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere near by! Our BEACHES ARE VERY QUIET AND PRISTINE and, in the off-season, you will rarely encounter anyone as you stroll quietly along the beach!

Our home is located on Indian Pass, just a couple of miles east from Cape San Blas - which has been rated in the top five of the best beaches in the United States. Port St. Joe is only 10 miles to the west where you can stock up on all of the provisions you'll need. If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. A golf course is only a few miles away and there are 4 separate boat ramps within 15 miles.

Just 20 minutes to the east is the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many wonderful restaurants and night spots. In addition, you can walk along the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day.

We invite you to get away from it all at "AWEIGH AT LAST!"

About Leslie Frye Allen

We live in Tallahassee and love this area of Florida's Gulf Coast. I have been coming down here since I was a child and have since introduced my husband and our two girls to this wonderful taste of 'Old Florida.'

We hope you will also fall in love with this area. It is a beautiful part of Florida where you can really get away from it all.

Absolutely fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazingly beautiful and furnished with everything you need! All you really need to bring is your bathing suit!

The beach is covered with the most beautiful shells I've ever seen. The furnished beach buggy and supplies were fantastic!

The kitchen is top notch! Has everything you need for a great meal!

By far the best beach trip we've ever had! We will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you, SO much, for the kind review. Since our home is brand new and we only put it on the rental market a few weeks ago, we didn't have any reviews yet and we appreciate you being our very first! We are so glad you stayed at our home and that you had a wonderful time. We are also so happy that you let our home be a part of celebrating your recent marriage. That's great that you were able to explore the beach and find some shells, too! We hope you will come back again...SOON!

Perfect Beach Home with Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home and everything is in great condition. The owner, Leslie, was extremely responsive and proactive in helping to ensure our vacation was perfect. The house sits on a secluded part of a beach and allowed us to spend a significant amount of time as a family without the hassle of other beachgoers. The house was well equipped with everything you need at a beach and we just needed to show up. I could not have been more impressed with the house, the location, and the owner. Leslie -- thank you for all your support. I would highly recommend this house to others!!

Our stay in Port St. Joe was a great way to be introduced the the Florida gulf coast. The house was the perfect size for our family and was beautifully decorated and very clean. We had a great time collecting shells, riding the golf cart on the beach, and fishing. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a quiet vacation on a beautiful beach!

Great place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful, had everything we needed & more! The beach was great for the little ones also. Port St Joe is not for anyone looking for night life. Couple of restaurants, convenient General Store but everything else requires a ride into town,

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

AWeigh at Last is sure to please. This beach house is extremely well maintained and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. It was so convenient to have beach towels and beach equipment provided. To add to our positive experience, Leslie was wonderful with her communications and responsiveness. We enjoyed the lovely beach and the privacy of the location. This was definitely one of our favorite beach trips and one of our favorite rentals. Would recommend to anyone seeking a true getaway in a serene and peaceful setting. We hope to stay again!

Great accommodations. Owner called early in visit to answer any questions/concerns. Super clean.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated with well equipped kitchen. Nice option of screened or unscreened porch. There are houses on either side of this property. Overall a very quiet area. Some days could be the only one on the beach if you are looking for some solitude from your busy life. Enjoyed seeing my husband so relaxed!
