About The Owner

My husband and I are retired from our own Business. We had a antique guesthouse and cafe in the Caribbean, and also owned a quest cottage on Little Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario as well as, an Art Gallery and Cafe. So here we are in beautiful St. Joe Beach, and loving it..

The Owner purchased this studio in 2010

Why The Owner chose Port St. Joe

We chose this area because a friend of min knew that I would really like it here. She was right. It's a little private getaway. what is also great about our area is that the beach is never crowded. It's a great place for Artists and Photographers, they have many subjects to capture in this area.

What makes this studio unique

Whats unique about this area is that the white sand beaches are so beautiful, serene, relaxing. It's not overpopulated here, just the opposite. We have everything here, fishing, hunting, sailing, surfing, great seafood and dining. The people in this area are very welcoming and congienal. The rental cottage is quaint, right next to the pool and you are just two short blocks away from the beach. You'll feel very much at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Large, beautifully appointed Studio. The pool is very clean,deep, and refreshing. The hosts could not have been nicer A couple could live here for a month very. happily

Great for a short stay

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute cottage & peaceful place -- probably perfect for one person, but a little small for two, especially when needing to use both beds. Big kitchen for a studio & nice bathroom. Couldn't have hosts any more hospitable & gracious ! Thanks for a good visit.

Cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely studio. Very private, comfortable, clean & well appointed. We very much enjoyed our stay. The owners Judy & Bill are delightful--friendly & welcoming, yet unobtrusive. The swimming pool is fantastic, and you'll have use of the gas grill, outdoor dining areas, and lush garden setting. Bike to the beautiful beach 2.5 blocks. Downtown Port St. Joe is only 7 miles, the town of Mexico Beach even closer. The trundle bed is quite comfy, far better than a sleeper sofa or futon (but not really a double bed, as it is 2 separate sections. Nevertheless, my husband & I had no problems snuggling ;) having traveled extensively, staying in numerous apartment around the world, we highly recommend this one.
