Rising Sun = A great beach vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at Rising Sun so very much. It was the perfect spot for our entire family, including three young grandsons, to enjoy a vacation at the beach. The house was great and had EVERYTHING we needed for our stay. The location was perfect for spending time on the beach and also for the fishermen of the family. We have stayed in Mexico Beach many times at different rental properties, but finally we have found "our beach house". We will be back!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even better than we expected! We had 8 adults and 2 children. Beds are wonderful, pillows were great and house is updated and decorated in a way that preserves the Old Florida style without sacrificing function. The whole place was clean including porch and deck, and slipcovers and linens were clean, too. Baths are small but functional and accommodating. Kitchen is well supplied. Sylvia was a pleasure to deal with and I will certainly recommend this property to others. We thoroughly enjoyed dinner one night at Krazy Fish in Port St Joe. Hit the regular spots too...mango marleys, beach pizza and sunset grill but all agreed Krazy Fish was the best!

Deloach family

  • 5 of 5

I truly don't know where to start on my review of this home. From the house, to the proximity to the beach, the people, the town, the food, the scenery ...... everything was amazing. My children did not want to leave and my husband and I dreamed of ways we could just move and stay forever. Thank you Silvia for everything and for anyone just looking.... Just book the trip. You won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: I am so happy to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Rising Sun, and your visit to Mexico Beach. I may be a little biased, but I couldn't agree more about our little community. We have some of the kindest folks you'll find anywhere. Looking forward to having you back on your next vacation. It was a pleasure serving you and your family.

Finally a beach house we can all agree on - everyone in our party loved it

  • 5 of 5

If you enjoy walking out of the house and finding yourself directly on the beach, you will love this rental. If you enjoy sitting outside on the porch and watching the ocean right from your own screened in deck, you will love this rental.

There were seven adults sharing the house and we had plenty of space to be comfortable. The house is clean and well furnished. There is a big screened in porch that feels like an extension of the living room and we made very good use of it. The kitchen was big enough and everything we needed was right there, right down to the cork screw. There are several restaurants close by that are very good too.

We found the four bedrooms spacious and the couches were comfortable enough to sleep on. There is even a blow up bed available.

But the best part of this house is location, location, location, it’s directly on the beach. There is a lovely roof top terrace with one of the most breathtaking ocean vistas I’ve ever seen. The house is located on a quiet, peaceful street, there are houses nearby but this house feels very private. There were very few people out on the private beach – and it is beautiful. While we were there a wedding took place out on a peer just down the beach from the house – the most beautiful back drop for a wedding.

We have already booked this house again for next year, and we plan to cook in advance and eat all our meals in – simply because once we get there were don’t want to leave the house. This home is comfortable, spacious, and relaxing, with a perfect location.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The house has everything you need. 6 adults and 3 children had plenty of space. Love the screened in porch and beach access. One floor makes everything so much easier. Sylvia is a pleasure to work with. We hope to combating next year.

Our family stayed here for a week - we had two children under the age of 7 & they loved the beach toy chest on the screened in porch. The proximity to the beach was just perfect & we enjoyed the upper level porch watching the sunsets. The kitchen was well stocked so cooking was easy & comfortable. Looking forward to coming back soon!
