About Reba Wilkerson
I was born and raised in Panama City, we found this little piece of heaven a little further down the coast. We love it and so do our grandchildren.
Reba Wilkerson purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Reba Wilkerson chose Port St. Joe
Although it is not right on the water it is a easy walk, we feel safe and it is a nice neighborhood. Beaches in St. Joe are also dog friendly.
What makes this Cottage unique
It does have a fenced in yard and we love dogs so small pets are welcome if they are well behaved. It has a big deck, and a screened in back porch. with washer and dryer.

The house was perfect for our group of 6 friends and fur babies! The yard was perfect for the dogs and the house had everything we needed for the week! Just a short walk to the beach and a ten minute drive to the grocery store! Definitely want to come back and stay here! Reba was quick and responsive to any of our questions and needs!
Overall a good stay
Pros: Spacious, lots of room, not to far to beach, plenty of parking, large fenced yard for dogs, washer and dryer, outdoor shower,
Cons: House not ready for check-in at scheduled time, late by one hour, only one key, yard needed maintenance, hot tub was dirty and could not use, mold in the cabinets
Sorry you were not happy, their was a mix up with the cleaning crew and we thought the 100.00 for dinner was a good apology. I have never seen any mold anywhere and I believe the spa man came while you were there. Have a nice day.
Comfy and clean little place to stay while vacationing at the beach!
We loved staying here! Everything was clean, comfortable, spacious! Fenced in yard was perfect for my little fur baby and plenty big enough! Outdoor shower was neat to be able to rinse off before heading inside, and the hot tub was relaxing after it cooled down after dark! There was all the dishes, cookware, and silverware you need to eat in home cooked meals along with a charcoal grill, as well as a propane grill. Lots of beach chairs and floats provided if you need them and two showers inside made things a lot more efficient! We will definitely come back and stay in the future when we make it back down there! Can’t beat it for not being right on the beach itself. Beach access point is only 3 blocks. You can drive down and park or walk if you wanted to. We drove down and parked and it was just a short walk to the water! We had a great time overall!
We loved it!! Location was good a nice walk to the beach, and neighbors are nice! The house was perfect for our family of 5. Reba has everything so you feel so welcome. All you need is bathing suit & flip flops , and a outfit or 2 an you’re set!! We will stay here again 💕
Cute little house close to the beach
The house was really cute and clean. The master bedroom has a nice TV with satellite. Our teenager had a room of his own and our two girls shared the kids' room. It was very accommodating to dogs, with dog toys, beds, and a fenced yard. The kitchen is pretty well appointed, and the washer and dryer were a great bonus. The kids enjoyed the hot tub, as well. It was nice to have the wagon with chairs, umbrellas, and toys. There is about a 3 block walk to the beach. The only cons were that the mattresses really need to be replaced; they are pretty worn out, and that the bathrooms are a little cramped. But overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Great week at the beach
We had a wonderful week at the beach. The weather was perfect, the water was gorgeous, and the Mexico Beach/Port St Joe area couldn't be nicer.
Manatee's Rest was much larger than we expected with a nice open floor plan that allowed for plenty of living room space for everyone. There are also several lovely outdoor spaces at this location - back screened in porch, front and side deck areas, grill area with outdoor seating, and a hot tub. The AC kept the house nice and cool at all times, too.
Location is a short walk to the Beach, the beach has lots of privacy and a great walk to nearby Windmark. You will be about 20 miles from Apalachacola, I recommend a day trip, shopping and great seafood. Mexico Beach also has lots of dining and drinking options available.
