Overview

About the property

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

Renting February in Winter also requires a January rental starting Jan 13 or 14.

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.

Excellent stay - super close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two pups, and I had a great stay at the cottage! It took me no time at all to get to the sand every morning! The dogs loved the fenced in backyard! The house was fully stocked with everything we need - as well as a lot of pup essential! Mark was an excellent host!

It was very clean, well kept and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood was very quiet and people were friendly. The house was very comfortable, close to the beach and the local caretaker came by several times to see if we needed anything. It was a great two weeks!

Vacation with "Furbaby"

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week at this quaint cottage in Beacon Hill. The cottage was well equipped with everything that we needed. Having a dog crate, dog bowls, beach gear and so much more saved a lot of room in our vehicle. (Not having to pack it all) The beach was never crowded and people that we met were all nice.

Affordable beach get away

  • 5 of 5

Short walk to the beach, dog, teenager, and fisherman friendly. The cottage comes complete with everything you need for a relaxing beach vacation. Our dog loved the back yard, the kids and husband loved the fishing and kayaking, while the girls enjoyed the beach.

Great house! Plenty of room. Very pet friendly!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week thru a holiday weekend. We had other guests over the weekend and there was plenty of room, a well equipped kitchen for cooking meals. A 2 minute walk to the beach. We took our Maltese and Yorkie with us and they had a great fenced in yard to explore and run. It truly was like being at home.
