About Linda Vance
Like many people, I always imagined Florida was nothing but condos and retirement communities. In 2010, I came to a training in the Florida Panhandle and discovered the rich natural and cultural heritage of the Forgotten Coast. My partner and I bought this house as a winter getaway, and have spent winters here since 2015, fishing, kayaking, and enjoying the friendly community. During the summer, we're back in Montana, where I work as a biologist in the Rocky Mountains.
Linda Vance purchased this Bungalow in 2011
Why Linda Vance chose Port St. Joe
We picked this house because of its location, less than a block from the Bay, because of its traditional charm, and because of the laid-back neighborhood. Even in the height of summer, this is far from party central; the house is part of a residential neighborhood, where the cool Bay breezes make year-round living enjoyable. Everything about the house and the street invites relaxation.

Enjoyed this tidy house. Had a great stay, no problems.
Can’t wait to go back! Very convenient to everything and it was also very clean which is a huge plus with us! The owner was very helpful and we can’t wait to come back!
This house has everything my family needed. AND was clean and well-maintained AND had a lot of character. this is not a condo or a new home or a place built as a rental. This is a genuine old-school Florida coastal home. It has personality, but is comfy and will take good care of its tenants. I should also add that the house did not have any bad smells...like mold or cigarettes or paint or carpet, etc.
Big carport to drop off all your stuff out of the weather.
Laundry room/mud room at the door so you have at least some chance of keeping the sand out.
Bathroom with large shower right off laundry room so you can clean up as soon as you get home...again keeping that sand out.
NICE kitchen with higher end appliances than usually found in a rental.
Big drop leaf table and enough chairs....plenty of room to eat for my family of 6 and more..
Hardwood floors that give you a hint of the long history of this home.
Doors in every doorway so you don't have to hear your loved ones noises if you don't want to!
2 living room areas ..great with kids
King sized bed sits low which I like, and was very comfy.
Front porch is screened in with comfy furniture.
Plenty of dressers, nightstands, etc for your stuff.
Great communication from owner. Even sent me an email telling me what is open and what is not around town while recovering from hurricane Michael.
Location: Not ON the water, but a block away. Close enough for me to walk with my kayak on a cart, to the bay and go kayaking. I noticed I could see the light house from the front porch and the restaurants, shops, and bay front park are all within walking distance.
I would stay here again for sure.
We will be back!
My family and I had a wonderful time there in port st joe. The house we stayed in was spotless and had everything we needed, I’ve told my friends about it and they are looking into renting this house. Will definitely be renting it again!
Had an amazing time!
The house is adorable and very clean. It had everything we needed with plenty of parking and enough space for a party of 7 to sleep. Loved that the hot water didn’t run out. After a long day of scalloping in the salty bay everyone was ready for showers and appreciated not having to wait on the water to warm up! Will definitely be back!
It was perfect for my family!
The home was adorable. Very clean. Plenty of room. Very convenient to everything we needed. Thank you very much.
