About Dawn Lounsbury

John and Dawn have been enjoying the Cape for the past 20 years and have owned vacation rentals on the Cape for the past 14. We have lived full time on Cape San Blas for 2 years and manage our own properties and a few others. We raised our two sons in St Louis Mo. Our rentals are set up the same as our own home and we hope you will make them your home away from home.

Dawn Lounsbury purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Dawn Lounsbury chose North West Florida

Secluded with St. Joe Bay views and shallow water access. Relax on the screen porch in a comfy rocker.

What makes this cabin unique

Beach and Bay access.

The bay is very shallow so a boat would need to be anchored very far out. Kayaks or paddle boards would be recommended.

double kayak is available for an additional fee.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect for us. Being surrounded by nature, the bay, the beach and great restaurants nearby. We were very pleased. The home was very clean and it provided much more than we expected...even for your pet. Great experience.

Great pet friendly vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly lovely! John and Dawn were attentive to all of our needs. The first night we enjoyed watching the sunset from the screened porch and noticed there was no screen below the floorboards, which allowed some mosquitos to join us. The next morning we mentioned this to John and within 3 hours he had screened in the porch floor! The house has every amenity necessary for a very comfortable stay, and is also quite private. It was an ideal place for us because we were able to bring our dog, too. Perfect for two people. I would highly recommend Bay Hammock and will definitely consider staying there again.

Clean Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, John and Dawn. All our questions answered! We enjoyed our stay in the Bay Hammock. The home has a nice view of the Bay in the distance. It was our first visit to Cape San Blas. There is a beach quite close and we visited with our dog Rook each day. The house is very neat and clean. There are place settings for four and silver as well. Bring extra towels and cleaning supplies. You might bring steak knives and a large serrated knife if you are planning on grilling steaks, cutting tomatoes or loves of bread. There are enough tools to get by. They have a toaster, coffee maker and blender. We happened to cook quite a bit. The fridge is apartment size. They have a small grill. The house is perfect for a couple. No window treatments keep it bright. However there is only one blind in the bedroom leaving two windows to allow the street light and morning light in. The mosquitoes were very bad and unexpected so bring repellant. We were not able to even stay on the screened porch as they came up thru the flooring. We felt this was likely unusual, as we have friends who lived there for years...The house is right across form a restaurant. Very close to Port St. Joe. We enjoyed dinner at Indian Pass Raw Bar, ( oysters ) Lunch in Appalachicola Up the Creek, ( friendly and delist) and lunch at Krazyfish, ( friendly and also good) and Tripletales ( porch not covered, rain got us) all dog friendly. Dessert from Sandbucket was homemade and yummy.

Perfect weekend getaway!!

We enjoyed our stay at Bay Hammock! The house was very neat and so cute! The location is ideal as you have beach access nearby, Port St. Joe and Apalachicola are both only minutes away! We will definitely be back!

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Only got to stay a couple days but property just as described. There was just 2 of us so not needed but Loft area upstairs with additional beds. Very clean and accommodating. May consider a few more utensils/towels. Had 2 towels and had about 4 of everything (plates, bowls, spoons, forks etc) Had to hand wash a lot b/c didn't want to waste energy on running a dishwasher for just a few items. Owner very generous and great with communication. Contacted me prior to stay and made sure I had everything I needed. Let us use kayak. Very peaceful setting. Thanks so much:)

Perfect accommodations, overlooking the bay and across the street from beach access

  • 5 of 5

Well-appointed, tastefully decorated house. Perfect for a couple or perhaps family with 1-2 children (extra beds up in the loft). Very comfortable and a great place to return to after a day at the beach. Loved the outdoor shower and slab under the porch for hosing off sandy beach gear. Only thing that was a bit of an inconvenience was we were surprised to find a few basics missing - paper towels, dish soap, sponges, laundry detergent, and dishwasher pellets / liquid. This necessitated a few trips back and forth to the local convenience store. Otherwise, though, highly recommend!
