About Susan Widdersheim

Retired legal assistant.

Susan Widdersheim purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Susan Widdersheim chose Palms Phase One

Sugar Sands Sojourn will make you feel like you are at home but also on vacation.

What makes this townhome unique

Two parking spaces are directly in front of the unit. If you are planning on bringing your boat, we have a designated area for parking your boat during your stay. Mexico Beach also has a public boat ramp. Please note that I DO NOT PERMIT THE CLEANING OF FISH in my unit. This should be done down on the dock or boat ramp. My unit is in The Palms of Mexico Beach Complex, which sits back off the road; therefore, it is very quiet and peaceful and you never hear traffic noise.

The Palms also has its own swimming pool which renters are welcome to use. Please read and abide by the Pool Usage Rules, which are posted at the pool, pool hours 8am - 9pm. A key for the pool will be provided and we ask that you do not give or share the key with anyone.

Old Florida Charm was very charming!

  • 5 of 5

Old Florida Charm is very clean and spacious. We had everything we needed. We enjoyed our vacation. We were three minutes from the ocean. The pool was very relaxing. We are ready for next summer to hurry and get here.

Owner's Response: So happy that you enjoyed your visit to Mexico Beach. Twice as happy to see that you enjoyed staying at Sugar Sands Sojourn. I have tried to make Sugar Sands "home like" and very comfortable. If you can think of anything that I might improve upon please let me know. Hope your pups enjoyed their visit and that you had the opportunity to take them to the dog beach. Please come back to Mexico Beach and if you do I would be pleased if you stayed at Sugar Sands Sojourn. Thanks again, Susan

Nice townhouse.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful decor but beds are too small for two people but we are tall people. The beds are a bit too hard. Could use toppers or softer mattresses. Farther from the beach then I like. Still a nice place and certainly met our needs.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. My apology for any discomfort you experienced sleeping in the beds. I truly hope that did not affect your enjoyment and visit to Mexico Beach. I hope everything else in the townhouse made your stay pleasant. Thanks for staying at Sugar Sands Sojourn. Susan

We absolutely loved our stay in Mexico Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Mexico Beach and it was amazing! The area is so peaceful and a great place for families to just enjoy quality time. The beach was clean and everyone respected each other and nature. Local businesses were very friendly and accommodating. IGA, deserves a special shout out for having everything and anything one would need or desire including service with a smile. We did hit a week with some rain so we had to plan outdoor activities around it. However, this was no problem as we were fortunate to have found the perfect home away from home. Susan's home is beautiful and accommodating, a short distance from the beach, clean, and she herself was more than a wonderful hostess. Should we find ourselves in Mexico Beach again and we certainly hope too, we most definitely will rent from her again. Thank you so much for allowing our family to spend a wonderful week in your beautiful home, you allowed us to make memories to last a lifetime.

Convenient Location & Exceptionally Organization

  • 5 of 5

We loved to be close to town to shop at the IGA and eat at nearby seafood restaurants. A 10 minute drive to the beaches of port st joe was a daily treat for our border collie who got her exercise herding all the waves. These beaches were often empty, especially on weekdays. The condo neighborhood is very friendly and safe. The condo itself had everything you would possibly want. If we go South next winter, we will most definitely rent from the most accommodating hostess on earth!

Wonderful stay at Mexico Beach

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Susan was a delightful host! She responded to my emails promptly with any questions I had. The condo was very clean and decorated beautifully! The beach was an easy walk or bike ride or you can drive, parking at the beach was never a problem. The unit is set up perfectly to share with friends, there is a bedroom and full bathroom on the first floor with two bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor. The kitchen also had everything we needed. I highly recommend staying here, it was everything the pictures and description said it was!

Toucans and El Governor were great beach bars/restaurants & Shipwreck is a great raw bar/restaurant.
