About Jan Morrison

We're from Kennesaw Ga ... our two grown sons enjoy the peace and tranquilty of the area now that they are past the teen years!! Our little grandsons love the beach and the fishing ponds in our community.

We have travelled the world to many other beaches and this one tops it for the white sands, the quiet area, the simple life locally and a wonderful family friendly atmosphere here and in Port St Joe..

We searched for 8 years ...all along the Panhandle to find the rigth combination for an escape..... peaceful and beautiful... from our busy urban life in the great ATLANTA area.

Come try us out you may also fall in love with it!!

Its a real AH HA place as soon as you get on the Cape road (30A-30E).

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the seaside cottage we found it to be even nicer than we expected. It was very clean and comfortable and had all the amenities of home. Jan and Bill were so nice to deal with and made everything go smoothly. This was a great vacation. The Cape is a wonderful destination and our cottage was the nicest, cleanest, most updated and comfortable rental we have ever rented. We give it TWO thumbs up.....Thanks Jan and Bill...

Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I use VRBO for most every trip we plan. By far this is the BEST rental I have ever booked. This cottage is equipt with everything you need. I was very impressed with all of the kitchen tools to cook, thank godness because restaurants are few and far between in Cape San Blas. The decor was so pretty and cute. Most importantly Jan, the owner was awesome to rent from. I defintely would return to this property.

Beautiful home, perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! You can really tell the difference between a rental that is someone's second home and something that is just a rental property. This cottage boasts the creature comforts of a second home that is loved and cared for by its owners. They want you to feel comfortable inside and out. We made good use of their movie library during the rainy mornings and loved all the older Disney movies and musicals. The kitchen is fabulous! We cooked dinner here every night and found everything we could possibly need to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfy! Our children loved the spiral staircase and the upstairs bedroom with the trundle bed. From a mom's perspective - the fact that I could see my children playing at the playground from the kitchen sink window or dining room window was a huge plus! It's a quick walk around the corner to one of the pools and just a few minutes' walk to the pool overlooking the beach. We're planning to return and would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a special place to get away. We came for the scallops - which we limited out on every day! Thanks so much for letting us stay in your home!
