About the property

Over 3000 Sq. Ft. 6 Br, 4 Bath Home Directly Across The Street From The Beach.

From the minute you arrive, you know this is going to be the beach vacation of your dreams. The one where family memories are made and cherished!

Welcome to The Aquagon, a newly renovated octagon shaped home that offers over 3000 Sq. Ft. and can comfortably accommodate up to 15 guests!

The Aquagon is situated directly across the street from the Gulf of Mexico (locals call it the "Gulf") in St. Joe Beach just steps away from a designated beach access. The home is located on a quiet stretch of SJB and there is nothing in front of the house to block your view of the Gulf!

As you enter the home you will immediately see exquisite views of the Gulf and Cape San Blas. The nautical themed décor and comfortable furnishings include reclining sofas, flat screen TV , DVD and wireless internet. There is a open kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops, as well as a large eat- in area where you can watch for dolphins playing while your family enjoys a meal. The expansive deck is perfect for soaking up the Florida sun or watching the breathtaking sunsets. And the views don't end there. At night, the stargazing is unforgettable!

There are 4 bedrooms upstairs( BR 1: 2 twins, BR2: One king, BR3:One king, BR 4: One full) and 2 full baths (Bath 1: shower/tub combo, Bath 2: extra large tiled shower). Downstairs there is a den with a Queen sleeper sofa, shower, bathroom and laundry area with TV, DVD and mini fridge. This could be used as a separate bedroom area or a place to send the kids on a rainy day. A separate entrance allows a place for a quick shower after rinsing off the sand and heading in.

There is also a 2 bedroom downstairs suite that can be closed off from the downstairs den for privacy.( BR1: one full, BR 2: one twin).This unit offers separate entrances, a living area with a Queen sleeper sofa and loveseat, full bath with tub/shower combo and stackable washer and dryer as well as a full kitchen and eat -in dining area. Outside, there is a covered porch where you will find a shady spot to dine, relax or take a nap in the hammock.

There is a large yard with plenty of parking for both your cars and your boat!

This location offers privacy and a less crowded beach while being a short distance to shops and restaurants. Nearby Port St. Joe offers quaint shops, parks, historical sites and a Marina. Mexico Beach offers restaurants, a fishing pier, marina and numerous cute shops.

St. Joe Beach is a relaxing destination that offers beach, boating, fishing and wildlife. If you want to take a scenic drive, head East to Appalachicola, Indian Pass or Cape San Blas. Panama City , Fl is a 45 minute drive to the West.

Do as much or little as you like! No matter how you choose to spend your vacation, we hope you will come to love it here as much as we do!

About Camille Lakey

I grew up a couple of hours from here and have always loved the beach. My husband and I always dreamed of having a Florida getaway and now our kids have the greatest playground ever! We never get tired of the beauty and nature that we find in this area.

Camille Lakey purchased this house in 2014

Why Camille Lakey chose North West Florida

We fell in love with this area the first time we visited. Having grown up in the Florida Panhandle it reminded me of "old Florida" before all of the high rises and over development. The views this house offered of the beach told us we wanted to renovate this home and have this as our "get away" .

What makes this house unique

We love the location of this property. It is on a quiet end of the beach and offers privacy since one side is wooded. It was a labor of love, but we knew our family would make a lot of memories here. It is the ultimate in relaxation. The massive deck offers the perfect place to have your morning coffee or watch the sunset. Once you see the views, it is hard not to feel relaxed.

Our July Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week. The home was lovely, spacious and clean to high standards. The living area upstairs was great for the family to gather and play games. We enjoyed beautiful sunsets and just lounging on the spacious porch. Beach access is across the street and easy to get to. The owner was gracious and very helpful. She responded without any indication of annoyance to my many questions. A great place to stay.

Beautiful Home with Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay included the great-grandparents, our three daughters with their husbands and two granddaughters. There were 14 in our party and plenty of room for everyone. During our vacation week, we experienced several days of tropical storms and tornado threats. Although the ocean was in turmoil and brackish during our stay, the home was very roomy, comfortable and the open concept was perfect for several days of indoor bonding. If you plan to stay in Port St. Joe, this home is excellent. It has everything you need, very clean and comfortable beds. Also, we never ran out of hot water! The floor plan upstairs and down are perfect, especially, the multiple entries and exists up and down. The Internet connection worked the whole time we were there and we never lost power during the storms. I would return to this vacation rental without any hesitation and recommend this home. Camille is very responsive to all your questions whether they are concerning the home or activities in the area. Thanks to Camille for making this vacation rental a home away from home!

fantastic family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went for a family reunion for one week in June. location is just perfect! Beach across the street, easy accessibility to grocery, restaurants and local shops. The Aquagon was comfy and clean. The owners did a great job with this place. Plenty of towels, blankets, pillows, chairs tvs. Beach was quiet and easy to get to. I only have two suggestions a few larger pans. Pans were a little small to cook for 10-15 people. Maybe getting a recycle trash or an extra trash can. We filled ours so fast even with two trash pick ups during the week. We will definitely be back!

Perfect spot for a multi generational family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed on the Forgotten Coast many times over the last 30+ years, but never this far north (toward Mexico Beach) and were a bit nervous about getting out of our comfort zone. But we loved it!! We were evenly spaced between the boat launches at Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach and it was so nice being only a few miles from the grocery stores in PSJ. The beach was beautiful in front of the house and access was easy via the public beach access at the end of Pine St. The house was perfect for three adult couples and multiple teenagers and 20 somethings, especially with the extra living area and kitchen downstairs.

Location

Nearest Beach
St. Joe Beach, Fl

Our home is the last house before you head into Windmark Beach area. Centrally located between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe. You choose how you want to spend your vacation....do as little or as much as you like. Our white sandy beaches offer everything you expect but tend to have less undertow because of the position of the Cape. This makes a nice place for children to play. Dolphin sightings are common . Besides the beaches, you can book fishing or scalloping trips(during season), rents kayaks, see the beach by horseback or find numerous places to shop for antiques and coastal décor . Port St. Joe offers lovely parks, walking trails and history. Panama City is a 45 minute drive if you want to shop/dine at your larger venues. It makes for a nice day but you will be happy to return to the less crowded , relaxed beaches of St. Joe!
