Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Port Saint Joe - Cool Change

Private home owned by two families who enjoy spending time on Cape San Blas.

Our home, Cool Change, is a three bedroom, three bathroom home on two levels. The two screened porches and a large open porch, all facing the water, encourage you to enjoy the breeze off the Gulf of Mexico, dine outdoors, relax on a lovely wooden swing, or just watch the sunrises and sunsets. A large kitchen encourages families to cook together or if that is not on the menu for the evening, numerous wonderful restaurants are ten to twenty minutes away. Right outside the downstairs queen bedroom is a large bathroom that includes a laundry with full size washer and dryer. Upstairs another queen master with an ensuite bath, and a bedroom with twin beds. There is an additional full bath upstairs as well as a nook where you could relax, read, or use your computer. Nature has blessed this area and it is home to many birds, including a mated pair of Great Horned Owls, lynx, dolphins, fish, and other animals that appreciate this part of old Florida. This quiet neighborhood offers complete relaxation with easy access to the boardwalk that leads directly to the beach.

Recent updates includes high speed wireless internet and unlimited nationwide calling, a new flatscreen television and DirecTV, a new refrigerator, a glasstop stove and a new outdoor gas grill. The kitchen includes a dishwasher and numerous small appliances. There is dishware enough to feed a large family, seating at the counter for three, and the table easily holds six or more.

Kitchen: fully equipped kitchen including new refrigerator with ice and water in the door, glass top stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender, toaster and other small appliances. Dishware for 12 and plenty of pots and pans for preparing meals, and a pantry to hold your groceries.

Entertainment: Wi-fi, unlimited national calling, DirecTV, DVD players, TVs in bedrooms and living rooms.

Outdoor: gas grill, screened porches on each level, and open porch with table, chairs and umbrella on first floor. Under house parking for two or three cars, and room in driveway for boat.

Home layout:

Loved everything about our stay at Cool Change

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, this was our first trip to CSB and we loved the area. The house was great!! Everything you could need was there, it was a beautiful house. We all so enjoyed the porch swing it was an added surprise. We loved getting to bring our dog, Lola. The beach was awesome, we went there everyday and Lola liked it too. Getting in the water is going to take a little longer for her but we enjoyed the water. I'm thinking we will be back to CSB and Cool Change if available.

Staying at Cool Change was a experience for our family.

  • 5 of 5

The house was outstanding. The amenities were good, and we loved the grill. Swinging on the screened in porch was very relaxing. Everyone had a great time.

This home was welcoming, clean and had all we would need for a relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Nancy and Ken were wonderful hosts. Ken checked in with us the evening we arrived. Making sure we had all we needed. Answering any questions we had and offering up any help we might need.

Their home had everything we needed. It was clean and comfortable. We have been coming to the Cape for 15 years now for our vacations.

Cool Change was one of the best homes we stayed in. Great views from the decks. Much wildlife to watch. Convenient board walk to the beach.

All the amenities we need to have a comfortable and relaxing vacation.

Thank you Nancy and Ken!!
