Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday townhome in Port Saint Joe - Kokomo

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

At 148 Aruba Drive there's a place called Kokomo. It’s where you wanna go to get away from it all!

Just a few steps to the world's most beautiful white sandy beach and crystal clear blue water. Enjoy watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from the deck or view the pristine beach from every room. Minutes from one of Florida's purest and most natural bays, where fish and scallops are abundant.

The only sound you will hear is the crashing of the waves. You will share this beach with more Loggerhead Turtles, Bald Eagles, and other native wildlife than people. This is eco-tourism at its finest.

Kokomo provides about 1600 square feet of living space. This includes two bedrooms and two baths on the main level. The master bedroom has a king-size bed. The second bedroom has a queen-size. It also offers a large loft (a full-size bed, a twin bed, and a full-size sleeper sofa). The family room, dining room, and kitchen are open and spacious.

The deck is also perfect for meals or just relaxing and watching sunsets that rival those off the Florida Keys. Ample covered parking for vehicles and space for accommodating a modest boat and trailer (please inquire regarding size restrictions).

There are no ferris wheels, IHOPs, or tacky T-shirt shops. This is old Florida - thankfully, the Forgotten Coast of Florida. However, it is only a short drive to historic Apalachicola and only about an hour to Panama City Beach.

We have books, board games, videos, and toys for all ages. Come get away from it all and enjoy the natural rhythms of our Kokomo!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great month at the Cape. The house was very comfortable and well equipped. We were able to relax and felt really at home. It was our first time to this part of Florida. We found it most interesting - especially Appalachicola. I ate loads of raw oysters and am having withdrawls. Thanks for your assistance in making this a most enjoyable stay.

Highly recommend!! Would stay again!!

  • 5 of 5

Immediately upon arriving at Kokomo, we knew we were going to love it and we certainly did. Everything from ample sleeping areas, a utility room full of boogie boards, chairs, floats, umbrellas, etc..., a fully stocked kitchen, close proximity to the beach, etc... This place was everything we needed... And more!! If you realize there was something you left behind and are in need of, just a few blocks away there are two convenience stores that can likely meet your needs. Otherwise, You will find a piggly wiggly, family dollar & a dollar general market a few miles away in Port St. Joe. Also, I must mention that the housekeeper is truly amazing. Not a grain of sand was to be seen inside the house upon our arrival. Now THAT is incredible!! We were there over the 4th of July and the fireworks were spectacular. We built bonfires on the beach several nights and enjoyed the company of friends and family. We brought a small dog, a Jack Russell, and the locked deck gate was a great asset because my doggie loves to run away any chance she gets. :-) Sadly, we had to leave the beach two nights early due to a family emergency, but we plan to be back again next year!! Thanks again, Melease, for sharing your home with my family.

This was our first visit to Cape San Blas. We definitely plan to go back. Kokomo was a great place for us. Very spacious!!! One of the best family trips we've had.

Just Okay

  • 2 of 5

While we had a good time in Cape San Blas we would not choose this unit again. The furniture and decorations inside clearly had been updated, unfortunately the maintenance in this 80's beach house had not.

- The bathrooms were very dated and in marginal condition(in between tiles and caulking).

- The deck was literally falling apart.

- Dishwasher leaks through the floor into the carport(and has for a while based on the sagging particle board)

- We had to do significant work just to enter the utility/laundry room due to the years of chairs, inflatables, boogie boards and beach items literally jammed into the room. A great bonus for visiting guests but the plus did not outweigh the impression/effort.

The house overall was 'nice looking' on the inside and the kids enjoyed it tremendously but it did not meet our standards for $XXX/night....even being a short walk to the beach.

I should note that whoever does the cleaning for the house does a great job! It was very clean and we were pleased with that.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the dishwasher leak. It had not been leaking long as it was only installed a few months prior. A defective part caused the leak and it has been repaired. We also rebuilt the deck shortly after your visit. The stairs and landing had been replaced shortly before your stay but we had to wait for a break in the rental cycle to replace the rest of the deck. The new deck looks great!! Renters like having chairs and floats available but don't seem to like returning them where they found them. Sorry their storage was not as neat and tidy as you expected (and I'm sure not as tidy as I left it). I will clean it out next week and update my check-out instructions to ask people to leave it the way they find it. We too are thrilled with the housekeeper!! Glad you had a good time.

Comfortable house with beach access and great sunset views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great girls weekend.The house was very comfortable and cozy with plenty of room for the seven of us. We laughed, played games, watched movies, cooked together and watched amazing Florida sunsets. We are hoping to make this an annual trip and hoping Kokomo will be available!

Very impressed!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip and staying at the Kokomo was a wonderful experience. Our 12 year daughter really enjoyed the loft as she was able to escape to her own private area. The master bed room is larger than I expected and the 2nd bedroom was just the right size for the other family we traveled with. The kitchen has been updated and we were really impressed with the everything including all of the supplies/spices that were available for our use. I will note, if the refrigerator is turned on max cooling (9), it will freeze the water filter that is in there as a previous tenant had apparently done that and once we turned it down to 7, it thawed out and the ice maker/water dispenser worked again.

The walk to the beach is only about a minute and there is a butterfly garden in the back of the Kokomo that was quite active while we were there.

The newer clothes washer/dryer were also a plus as well as the large model Weber Charcoal grill.

We will definitely consider the Kokomo again in the future and I encourage anyone reading this to do the same.
