About Murray & Emma

we owned an all natural pet food store/boutique in Tallahassee, have 3 dogs that always share this house with us, and support pet adoption causes.

Murray & Emma purchased this house in 2010

Why Murray & Emma chose North West Florida

the most pet friendly beach in Florida, beautiful unspoilt beaches, quiet location.

We bought this place to enjoy ourselves, spent a year renovating it to be comfortable and inviting. We want to share this wonderful place with other appreciating pet owners.

What makes this house unique

taking the dogs for an early morning romp on the beach, sipping cocktails whilst watching the fabulous sunsets.

Relaxing and warm February 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Sandy Paws! It is so very pet friendly and clean! The pups lost a few pounds with all their exercise and up and down the stairs but that is a good thing! The bikes were great and we used them every day. Beach is close for walking and great sunsets and we saw dolphins on several occasions from the beach. The house has everything you could ask for, nice linens, privacy, and bathrooms and showers are very nice. Cable TV and Netflix is good, thanks! We also appreciated the outside shower for beach sand. We saw deer and birds and watched the jets overhead from the Airforce base. The Trading Post and Scallop Cove and beach shop are about 3 miles and have most everything you could need. The shrimp and scallops at Cone Heads were delicious--some of the best we had during the whole month and they are walking distance. In Port St. Joe we liked Provisions best for a nice dinner. Great Place! Hoping to go back! Thanks Murray and Emma!

The house was very nice and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house was very relaxing and a short walk to the beach. Our fur babies had just as much fun as we did. I love that the town is so pet friendly. Best vacation we have had!

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, along with our dog, stayed for the month of January. It was our first time ever going to the beach in the winter and also our longest stay ever. Everything we needed (and more) was on the property. Even though the beach is only a short 5 minute walk, it was quite nice to have the option of taking the golf cart or bicycles. The accommodations were perfect for our dog -- a crate/kennel, the fenced in yard, food and water bowls. We found everything we needed as well. The kitchen is well stocked, the furniture is comfortable, and the location is great. If you don't want to drive back into Port St. Joe to the large grocery store, Cape Trading Post is only 2.5 miles away and has lots of grocery items. It was worth paying a little extra to save so much time. Murray and Emma were very accommodating and made sure we had all that we needed. I would stay here again!

An absolutely delightful home and the most pet-friendly rental I've ever stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Once upon a time I worked for the government and I had an arrangement with my boss. I agreed to travel anywhere I was needed and to be away from home for extended periods of time as long as I could travel with my dogs. Of the many fine pet-friendly rentals I have shared with my dogs this was the most pet-friendly. Every amenity you or your dog could want or need is provided by the owners, who are clearly dog lovers. I particularly appreciated the fenced-in yard. My dogs liked the covers on the furniture so that they could curl up with me on the couch in the evenings. The house is clean and well maintained, the beds are comfortable, all the appliances are new and the kitchen is fully equipped. The house is full of good energy.

Beautiful Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Sandy Paws. The house was fabulously comfortable, airy, with the most amazing light all through the day. It was close to the beach and also very close to the State Park which is an awesome bike ride. Our dogs had a fabulous time and really enjoyed every minute. We are so grateful to have found this rental property!

Additional pricing information

Property Damage Protection £47
cleaning fee £140 + Tax
Tax Rate 12.0%

winter rates are $85 per night for stays of 28 days or more plus applicable fees.

Early in 2016, VRBO introduced a service fee which ranges from 4-9% ... this is a VRBO fee and has nothing to do with us and to be honest is simply a money maker for them. Any feedback regarding this fee should be directed to VRBO.
