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!

They thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Cape San Blas thanks to the awesome owners of Sandy Paws. This was our first year to bring our dogs, our only regret was that we didn't decide to do it sooner. The entire house and yard has been tailored for pet lovers.

The house itself was one of the best stocked rental homes we have ever encountered. We felt like we were staying at a friend's home. The beds were comfortable for each person even though some usually prefer more firm or softer mattresses. The kitchen had everything we required. Having all the toys at our disposal was great. We got a lot of use out of the bikes and golf cart.

The owners were very fast to respond when we had a concern or a question. They are just nice people.

Family and beach time

  • 4 of 5

My family joined my husband and I at Sandy paws for a great vacation. They are from Colorado so the beach made for a fun time. The house was roomy, and well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. i really enjoyed eating at Indian Pass Raw bar.

Excellent location! Accommodating home with plenty of space and amenities. Dog friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first vacation, traveling with a 2 year old and dog, so we were very selective when choosing a property. We were very impressed with the house, the amenities (so many games, air hockey, cornhole, fully equipped kitchen, linens and towels included, etc), the clean and private beach, the convenience of a store right up the street, and more! This property truly had everything a family would need to have a great vacation!! And was very clean too! We would love to stay again! Plus the property owners were so easy to work with - very quick with responses and answering our questions. Our dog had a blast as well - again the property had dog beds, bowels, treats, and toys. She was in heaven! We highly recommend this property!!! Thank you Murray and Emma!

Great time. Minor issues.

  • 4 of 5

Had a excellent time. I planned this trip for my dogs and they loved it. Not sure what happened to the separate fenced in area. Could of mowed the weeds. Taller than my labs.

Owner's Response: we used to have a separating fence between the back yard and side yard, but removed it for a larger dog area. The area you refer to belongs to next door.

Great Place to relax and have fun

  • 5 of 5

Jun 2017

We had a wonderful time staying here, not only is it conveniently located to both the bay and the beach they have many items for your use. It is in a very peaceful location, but plenty to do if you like to keep busy. You really only need to bring the clothes you need to wear. There are plenty of beach chairs, toys, boards and the use of a golf cart to get it all where you want to go. You really do not need to spend anymore money to enjoy your stay. I was there with my four grown children plus two sufficient others and three dogs, we had plenty to do together and separate. It was a a very good vacation.

Additional pricing information

Cleaning Fee £135.94
Damage Insurance £45.83

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.
