Peaceful & Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

A 30-Second walk to the beach! The mornings are breathtaking with dolphins swimming up-and-down the gulf in front of the house. The slightly cooler evening breezes encourage you to relax in the hot tub for crawling into bed for the night. While there are properties on each side of the house it's still a very secluded private setting. The house is appropriately decorated in a beach theme. So many great local restaurants! The Sand Dollar Cafe, Pepper's Mexican Restaurant, Paul Gant's BBQ and Smiley's Fried Chicken... just to name a few! Less than an hour away you can visit Panama City Beach to the west and St. George Island to the east.

The location was great, however, the house needed major updating!

  • 2 of 5

We love Port St. Joe and have been vacationing there for the past 12 years! The location of this house was perfect and gulf front! The room sizes were large and the proximity to the beach was perfect! The issues with this house are mainly cosmetic. The whole appliance package needs to be updated. You cannot use the door space of the fridge because all the rails are missing. The temperature dial for the oven was broken...thank goodness we thought to use the other dial to work the oven! (We did call the management company) The disposal did not work and the dishwasher was ancient. There was rust in the washing machine and I’m not sure what to make of the lint trap on the dryer. The deck was nice, but we had no furniture to safely sit on as the 3 zero gravity chairs were so rusted that we didn’t even try. The mattresses in each bedroom were very light and dated! There is an awesome enclosed patio area, furniture there could use an update too. There is an outdoor hotub on the deck, but we didn’t even attempt. When at the beach we rarely watch tv, however we are football fans so we wanted to watch the New Years Day playoffs. It was difficult in a large room with about a 30 inch TV. I know I am complaining a lot, but this house has a lot of potential to be really awesome! I wish the owners would put a little $ into their investment as it is an awesome location and could be a really great property.

Summer Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed July 1-8, 2017. The house was beautiful. I love the size of the kitchen and the master bath shower is to die for!! The screened in porch was a nice added bonus because it was also air conditioned and we were able to eat our breakfast in there and watch for dolphins! We did see a couple swim past during our stay. The hot tub was also an extra bonus. We didn't use it but once but that is because is was already so warm outside. We made our way to the bay often to do some snorkeling and kayaking. We found so many sand dollars, shells and even two huge conch shells! Those were an added fun find!!! We loved having the outdoor shower available for us after we were done swimming in the ocean repeatedly during the day....and evening!! We had an issue with the lights in the master bath flickering and Lanny came right over and had them fixed in no time!! Thanks so much for that! He also brought us over a hair dryer because the one that was supposed to be there could not be found!! I loved our stay there and can't wait to go back!!! Thanks for everything!!
