Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Renting February in Winter also requires a January rental.

Cottage is one block or about 200 yards from the kind of wide, white sand beach the Florida panhandle is famous for.

Only available Saturday to Saturday except for certain weeks from Thanksgiving to New Years Day. Why pay $1,800 a week for a place with landscaped gardens when the best landscape is at the beach? If you want elaborate landscaping, my cottage is not the best for you. The cottage does have a nice open air porch in the front.

Now if you want a home that is on the beach, my cottage is not quite there, yet. Maybe, with global warming, it will be, soon.

Rental period is Saturday to Saturday except November and December holiday season.

Most people who stay at the cottage pack up the car and park along 98 or at the Beacon Hill public beach parking lot just down the street.

Maximum capacity is 7 or 8 with a king in master, 2 twins in middle bedroom and bunkbed in front bedroom with full on bottom and twin on top.

Vacation home built in 2003. Back yard is fenced in and ready for your dog to roam free or run around in circles, endlessly chasing it's tail.

Enjoy the front porch to relax, enjoy the fresh breeze, and listen to the waves rolling in from the Gulf of Mexico. Better yet, take a short stroll to the white sandy beach and watch the waves, beach activity and enjoy an evening sunset.

You can watch HD TV with cable in living room, middle bedroom and master bedroom.

The beach a short walk down the street is the same pristine white sand beach found all along the Gulf of Mexico. Pictures available upon request.

If you have more than 7 guests, there is an additional $2/night charge.

About Mark Barnhart

I feel responsible to ensure you enjoy your visit when you stay at my vacation rental. I desire to have a home where fond memories are created to last a lifetime.

Mark Barnhart purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Mark Barnhart chose Port St. Joe

Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! .

Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

What makes this cottage unique

Beach chairs, wagon, beach umbrellas, beach cart, and beach toys are provided for your enjoyment.

Great place to stay, very short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit. We loved being able to bring our dog. The location is great and the price is very reasonable. We will rent this one again. We loved that the community is now golf cart friendly too.

Great cottage close to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We made a last minute decision to go to the beach when we saw this listing. We were not disappointed! The cottage is very close to the beach. We walked each day. There are several restaurants and stores very close by. There was plenty of room for my husband, me, and four of our teenage boys. We also brought our bulldog with us. The fenced in backyard is wonderful for dogs to romp a little. There was plenty of room in each bedroom for everyone. Some items in the home are worn and dated, but for us that just makes it a more "livable" home where you don't feel like you are walking on eggshells at every turn. This was our first time staying in the area and we really loved it! Mark gave great information for our trip and many suggestions for things to do and even places to eat. We loved our stay and would come again!

Always perfect

  • 5 of 5

3rd year we've stayed here and each one has been perfect. House is well equipped with everything you need and a few extra things. The beach here is less busy and very friendly. We will be back next year again. Thanks Mark

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was so nice to be able to bring not only our 10lb dog but also our old 100lb dog. They both liked the beach, the fenced in yard and the front porch. We loved everything about it. It was nice to get away and relax! Looking forward to being there later in the summer.
