About Lasinda McDaniel

We are the McDaniel family from the suburbs of Washington, D.C. My husband grew up in Georgia and I grew up in Alabama. We vacationed with our families on the Gulf growing up. It has always been a dream of ours to own our own beach home on the panhandle of Florida. There quite simply is no other beach that compares. We visited the Cape San Blas area a few years ago and fell in love with the uncrowded beaches and abundant wildlife and natural beauty. We knew then that this is the place we would live someday. We are so thankful our three children will grow up making memories here at the beach. We are happy to share this place with you and your family.

Lasinda McDaniel purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Lasinda McDaniel chose North West Florida

We chose this beach home because of the beautiful quite area. And, we loved the idea of having a home located between the historic towns of Port Saint Joe and Apalachicola.

What makes this townhome unique

Our beach home is located directly on the Gulf.....beautiful views and uncrowded beaches...and a Gulf front pool shared by only twelve homes. Our home and beach are dog friendly :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Copied verbatim from our listing for this property at vrbo listing# 468253.

This condo is so clean and well furnished. Everything is so convenient and well selected for the beach. And the beach is just a few steps outside the screened porch. The owner even leaves a welcome basket with food for the first night, morning and snacks. My Shi Tzus loved looking out the porch and people and dog watching. They loved walking on the beach. I recommend this property for anyone who loves the beach. I plan to return next year.

Very clean with a well stocked kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Arrival day was stressful. The information that we received did not have the driving instructions. We tried calling the owner a few times but got voicemail. Then we tried the two local contact numbers that we were given, both disconnected. The owner said she will update the numbers. You need directions because the GPS did not take us to the correct house. The home is comfortable and very clean. The kitchen had plenty of pots, pans, and cooking staples. Very thoughtful to have a welcome basket. We were very glad to have internet service due to the fact that there is no cellular service. We were there during Christmas and able to FaceTime our friends and family. My husband and I took our dog on a "family" vacation and this was a perfect place to be with our dog. The whole area is very quiet, a 20 minute drive took us to the small town of Apalachicola. We enjoyed the excellent restaurants here. The web site photos of the beach are old. Mother nature has totally changed the beach. Due to the bayou running directly in front of the property, it has divided the beach in two. The only way to get to the beach from the house is to walk through the large bayou which was up to my knees (cold in Dec.) There is a very small beach area between the property and the bayou which allows some beach chairs. A local told us this started a few years ago but this year was the worst it has ever been. One of the reasons we chose this area was that they allow bonfires on the beach. We had a perfect Christmas Eve sitting around the fire. My husband and I travel for a living, which is why we chose this area, it's perfect if you want peace and quiet. How could I forget the Oysters! They were awesome, even had some that were smoked grilled. We would like to thank the owners for sharing their lovely property with us. And also thanks for being dog friendly. J,J & R

Owner's Response: Hello, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Cape San Blas is a beautiful area....we really love it there:). The photos of the beach on our listing are not old. The area has experienced some severe late Fall storms and much higher than normal rainfall. This is why the bayou is presently running a varied course with a turn to the west. The bayou changes paths frequently with severe storms. It may wind west for a while and then it will run straight out to the ocean....which is its typical path. Mother Nature likes to play with the bayou:). In the past two years since we have owned the property, the bayou has pushed west after heavy storms maybe six or seven times......but it always recedes to its typical path....straight out to the ocean with no curve in front of Cape Villas. Cell service is indeed limited on the Cape. I have Verizon service and am able to use my cell phone while there....with one or two bars of reception. It really depends on the carrier.....some providers have limited service....others have none at all. We always make sure our guests have the phone number to the beach house before their trip date so that they can leave the number with family and friends just in case their cell phone has no service. Honestly, I have never had anyone tell me that they had any difficulty finding Cape Villas with GPS. I just now checked online with google maps....the property is correctly located on their service. I also checked the google maps app on my cell phone....it is also correctly identifying the location of property. I don't know a lot about all the many different GPS providers, but perhaps there is a difference in the results from the various providers? Again, I have never had anyone say that they had difficulty finding Cape Villas....using GPS or otherwise, but I will be more than happy to provide written directions to anyone that would like to have them. Have a great new year and safe travels.)

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse development consisting of 12 units is well maintained although very informal.

The unit was clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and a shared grassy area for grilling using the grill provided.

The pool was uncrowded and the owners provide sun loungers, chairs and other pool / beach equipment. The owners and local property managers were helpful and very responsive.

The best feature of this rental is the location - right on the gulf beach - perfect for evening walks, fishing and just relaxing.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again!

Nice beachfront condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this townhouse on the beach at Indian Pass. The amenities supplied by the owners were excellent, beds comfortable and proximity to beach and pool could not be closer. Little things made it nice (icemaker works like a champ, the screened in porches made it possible to enjoy breakfast each day watching the water! Thank you!

The cleanest townhouse on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse is just beautiful, fully stocked kitchen, updated throughout the townhouse, comfortable beds. We really enjoyed the goodie basket's one was filled with food products to use until you could get to the grocery storeand the other with supplies you may have forgotten. We took our grandson who is 5 years old this was his first time going to the beach and it was great. We enjoyed your home and hope to rent it again next year!

The cleanest townhouse on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place to stay on the beach it was so clean, full stocked and there was even food to eat the first night you get there in case you didn't have time to get grocery's yet. We have rented many places at St. Joe's beach and this was the cleanest townhouse I have been in down there. We loved it and hopefully be back next year if the good Lord is willing! Thanks for renting your townhouse out to us. Troy & Michelle Atkinson Grandson- Carson
