Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic time we had at Jack's Gulls. The house is roomie, beds were comfortable, kitchen well furnished, and love the front porch. Also enjoyed the grounds and dock. Very short walk to the beach. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful with quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

Several of the adults in our family (7) recently spent a week at JacksGulls. The home is extremely well kept and we were amazed how well it was stocked with necessities. The quiet beach was awesome, and felt as though it belonged to us. Our stay was the first week of August and we didn't encounter more than a dozen people the entire week.

Since the home is in such a rustic sitting, eating out took a little travel time (20 min,); but was worth it. Found good food at both San Cape Blas and in Port St, Joe.

If your looking for a quiet retreat, and a place to get away from the business of life, this is it.

(As indicated by previous reviews, you will definitely need bug spray if you're going to spend time on the dock. But if you can handle the mosquitos, there were fish jumping out of the water, just waiting to be caught.

Thanks Pat for sharing your corner of paradise with us.

  • 5 of 5

My crew fell in love from the moment we walked through the door. So spacious and inviting. We appreciate the fact that you have furnished and equipped your home for families to enjoy, but make no mistake, it is a gorgeous, tropical beauty. I have never been more impressed with a kitchen at a vacation home in my life. So well thought out and equipped.

So much to enjoy at beach and lagoon. The wildlife and sea life is abundant and spectacular. The privacy is something my family appreciates and cherishes. My ONLY complaint is that the week went by too fast. Two weeks next year!

Blessings to you and your family.

Much nicer in person!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Jack's Gulls!! It was much nicer and larger than the photos make it look. The cookware in the kitchen was great too, very well organized, and the pantry was HUGE! The only improvements the house needs are DVD players with each TV. The one in the main living room also didn't read DVD's well. We had to put the DVD in and take it out several times to get it to work. Maybe it needs to be cleaned or just replaced with a newer one? Also, if you are coming, plan to bring A LOT of bug spray. The bay side has a ton of mosquitoes in the summer! The screen porches prevent them from getting in the house though. That was nice! Even with these two things, I would still stay there again! It was very nice and VERY convenient to the beach! Our family rented a golf cart to drive over but it really wasn't necessary. The walk is fairly flat too! We have stayed in houses that were gulf front and had longer walks and lots of stairs. This was much easier!
