Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms - 3.5 Baths - (Sleeps up to 10 adults, maximum of 14 people)

Seagull Landing is a magnificent three story, five bedroom, three and one half bath home, with an observation tower overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The house is approximately 3300 square feet under air. Seagull Landing is located in Windmark Beach, a St. Joe Company development, in Port St. Joe, Florida. Windmark Beach is in close proximity to downtown Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas, and historic Apalachicola.

Seagull Landing was custom built for our family in 2007. The main level of this home is an open floor plan with a large fully equipped gourmet kitchen, living and dining room, beautifully decorated and very inviting. A laundry room with a full size washer and dryer sits adjacent to the kitchen. There is one bedroom on the main level, with its own bathroom, and an additional half bath. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Both bathrooms are spacious and very lively, with mosaic tile on the walls. The master bathroom has a dual head shower that is absolutely wonderful! At the very top of the house is an observation tower, complete with a bench seat to sit, relax and enjoy the gorgeous views.

We have a private outdoor (hot and cold water) shower on the side of the house. There are two screened in patios, one on each level of the house.

A wooden boardwalk in front of the house leads you on a very short walk (about 200 yards) to the Windmark community pool, for your use when you rent our home. There are plenty of teak lounge chairs and tables on the deck, and cabana bathrooms with showers. Best of all, it is just steps from the beach! The beach at Windmark is on St. Joseph Bay, which is somewhat calmer and narrower than traditional gulf beaches. There are several docks at the beach that provide access to the Bay / Gulf and great fishing and boating.

This house can accommodate up to 14 guests, with a maximum of 10 adults (HOA bylaws).

We cannot rent the house to college aged groups / individuals under 25 years of age.

When staying at Seagull Landing. you may also use the pool at the Windmark Beach Village Center.

About Joan S.

We are a family that loves to escape the daily grind when we come to the quiet, beautiful beaches of the Northern Gulf of Mexico.

Joan S. purchased this house in 2007

Why Joan S. chose North West Florida

Our family has been vacationing in the area since 2001. We love the slow pace to unwind and the soothing relaxation of being at the beach. Absolutely nothing beats a long walk on the quiet stretch of beach at Windmark.

What makes this house unique

I walk on the beach, weather permitting, daily when staying at the house. We find the Windmark Beach location ideal. It is less than 10 minutes to Mexico Beach and 5 minutes to the conveniences in Port St. Joe. We have stayed at the more remote Indian Pass and Cape San Blas, and while beautiful locations, it can take over 20 minutes, each way, to drive to the grocery store and town.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely loved the house. Relaxed area with close access to main road. All the members of the group could not believe that this was a rental property. We will use this again when we travel to Port St. Joe.



"Best sun-set ever" – the comment made every night by at least one of the group. As for price – one of the best I have found for anything similar in Florida.

Overall our experience was fabulous! Joan was very responsive to the few questions I had while staying in her home. The house was clean and well stocked. Everyone truly enjoyed our stay and have absolutely no complaints. I would definitely recommend to anyone to stay there.

Our Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice and spacious house. Our family goes to Mexico Beach every year together and this was by far the nicest place we have stayed. It has all of the amenities that you would want. The pool is a short walk away and there is a nice walk way leading from the house to the pool. Windmark beach is very quiet and family oriented. We would definitely love to stay here again.

Beautiful house fully stocked wit everything you would need!

  • 4 of 5

I was disappointed in the beach. It was dangerous to try to get to from pool and not enough space to handle several people.

Owner's Response: Terri, I'm glad you enjoyed the house. Unfortunately I have no control over the beach and pool area. The whole area has suffered from beach erosion the past few years. Our homeowners association is working on some beach restoration projects that we hope will help replenish the beach soon.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for six adults and eight children. The secluded feeling of WindMark was peaceful. We enjoyed sunsets on the beach, the pool and fishing from the pier. We'll be back.

It was a wonderful time for the Virtual Book Club.

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely wonderful. The kitchen was ideal for group cooking and very well stocked with everything one needs -- was happy to see a stick blender and small food processor -- plenty of wine glasses and dishes and so;verware. The property was clean and the customer service was exemplary. I would like to visit the property again -- do I directly contact the owner or do I need to go on the VRBO site? We went to the market and we ate at Provisions restaurant -- WONDERFUL!!!!!! We also went to the fish market - the owner is a very colorful man! We loved the pool and it was nice to walk along the beach. The sunsets and sunrises from the balcony was breathtaking. A nice quiet neighborhood. It was a perfect get away.

Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at your home. The house was amazing and the property was just lovely. We enjoyed the quiet and beautiful area and were able to walk the beaches, fish, take long walks through the association. For our younger family members Mexico Beach was a quick drive away and then we all enjoyed the pools in the afternoon by the house. We will come back! :)
