Florida Panhandle House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 6) 1 king, 1 queen, 2 twins, sleeper sofa

'Get Your Bathing Suit On' is a custom-built, Key West-style beach home that has RELAX written all over it! This first-tier home is less than 100 steps to the beautiful, white, sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. The gorgeous Gulf beach views can be appreciated from the living room, dining room, the loft, the porch, the deck and the kitchen of our home. With its 3 separate sleeping areas,with a total of four baths,screened porch and sundeck, our whimsically-decorated home can easily accommodate a family or small group... but is still small enough for couples on a romantic getaway!!

For your convenience, we also have two cruiser bikes and a car bike rack, a tandem Kayak, and a Tommy Bahama Beach Cart with Umbrella to easily tote all your things to the beach. We maintain a supply of beach chairs, beach umbrellas, a large cooler, kids fishing poles, rafts, small crab nets, crab bucket and a crab trap, boogie boards, wave boards,, shovels, pails, large outdoor grill, grilling utensils, tennis rackets and beach toys! If you decide to stay indoors for a while we also have a cupboard full of board games and puzzles to keep you entertained.

We also try to simplify what you need to pack by providing all your linens and bath towels, as well as a starter supply of paper towels, toilet paper, bath soap, and detergents. Please note that the linen service DOES NOT INCLUDE BEACH TOWELS so please bring those from home.

There is plenty do do but if you decide to just relax, you will have a fantastic time enjoying the sweeping Gulf views and spectacular sunsets from the living room, kitchen, dining room, loft, sun deck and screened porch and if you decide to stroll along our quiet and award winning beaches, you can find a variety of seashells to collect, watch the dolphins swimming by, see the mullet jumping in the bayou or catch the eagles and osprey scouting for prey.

Of course, swimming, sunbathing, fishing in the surf or crabbing in the bayou are always a lot of fun.

Our neighborhood is extremely quiet and friendly, with no thru traffic - a great place for families with children, or for anyone who just wants to get away from it all!

Money Bayou is just a short walk down the beach where you can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net or put in your kayak to explore the winding waterway. Scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay is also a lot of fun during the summer scallop season. These sweet, tender delicacies are a favorite for dinner or can be frozen to be enjoyed later when you return home. In addition, nearby Indian Pass is famous for its delicious oysters!


The GROUND LEVEL has a bedroom with a queen bed and a private 1/2 bath which is perfect for the mother-in-law or a guest couple. The garage is also on this level and contains the washer & dryer as well as a plentiful supply of beach chairs, rafts and beach toys for your convenience. There is also a hot/cold outdoor shower conveniently located on the ground-level deck.

The MAIN LEVEL has gleaming heart pine floors throughout. It contains the kitchen with breakfast bar, dining nook and living room that open to the screened porch with pub-height table and chairs that make it easy to dine 'al fresco' while enjoying the view. In addition, the inside dining area has a very comfortable window seat perfect for afternoon naps or reading a book from our collection. There is a full bath on this level. The Master Bedroom, with king bed, is also located on this level and also has a private full bath.

The LOFT, which serves as the third bedroom, has two twin beds with built-in drawers. The loft also has a 1/2 bath. It is perfect for kids/teenagers or friends. It also has a large open area that provides plenty of extra room for play.

The house has WiFi and all the bedrooms and the loft have their own TVs with DVD players. There is also a TV, DVD player and CD player in the living room.

We invite you to stay at 'Get Your Bathing Suit On'to relax and enjoy 'Old Florida.'

About Teresa Mustelier

Our family always wanted a house on the beach and this beach house is a dream come true. We love to swim and fish, Kayak and bike and to just sit on the porch and listen to the music of the birds, the wind and the waves. We are originally from Cuba but now live in the Northeast. We enjoy this house so much and we hope that you will too!!

Teresa Mustelier purchased this house in 2004

Why Teresa Mustelier chose Florida Panhandle

Money Bayou and Money Beach are unique. This is the only place in the Cape San Blas area where you can enjoy all the wonders of the beach and the bayou within steps of each other. Our proximity to St. Vincent's Wildlife Refuge, the St. Joseph Peninsular Park and to the St. Joe Buffer Preserve make this about as an ideal beach, boating, fishing, cycling and exploring beach experience as you will find anywhere!

What makes this house unique

The Bayou for cast netting and crabbing, the surf for swimming and surf fishing, the bike path (a mile away) for cycling, the Raw Bar for great food and camaraderie, the Buffer Preserve, the state park and the Wildlife Refuge for nature exploration (you can see sea horses swimming in the bay at the state park!!!). The closest restaurant is about a mile away. It is the Indian Pass Raw Bar and is famous for its oysters and other seafood (as well as for its VERY casual atmosphere.. it is a DEFINITE local culture experience you should try!) There are a few other restaurants that are fairly nearby, however, if you want even MORE shopping and restaurants-besides those that are nearby- there are a number to choose from in Port St. Joe (9 miles west) and Apalachicola (19 miles east), Mexico Beach (20 miles west) and Panama City (48 miles west).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Greatly enjoyed the house. The free passes to golfing and deep sea fishing were a treat andthe fishing and crabbing off the beach and bayou were superb. We caught our limit of red snapper on the FishNExpress and whiting and red fish on the beach. Thanks for a great vacation.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for some much needed R and R. We totally enjoyed our stay. The house is located in a part of the "Forgotten Coast" that is still "old Florida Coast". Not much of that remains. Here you can get away from it all, kick back, unwind, take in the sun, see the natural beauty of the Florida Panhandle and and enjoy the beach. The house has character, charm and well thought out amenities that make for a care free vacation. Thanks to the owners for their thoughtfulness.

November 2015...Week of fun

  • 4 of 5

The beach house was comfortable, clean, fully stocked and just what the owner stated. The owner went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of and our stay was enjoyable. Great local friendly residents, great place to eat with fresh seafood. We saw 3 eagles, daily, soaring over the Gulf fishing, dolphins, hammerhead shark, pelicans, seagulls and sandpipers.

A great vacation retreat. My wife and I throughly enjoyed the house and location. Enjoyed the uncrowded beach. I took advantage of the free golf. Close enough to Port St Joe to go to town when you needed something. Loved Indian Pass Raw Bar. Planning to return to this property sometime soon and excited to learn more about the area. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay for a quiet vacation. Beach was not crowded at all and just a short walk away. No issues with the house, it met all of our needs for a party of 5. Plenty of places to eat near by. Lots of toys for kids to use. Beach and house is pet friendly. Would stay here again.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are exactly like the house. The views are amazing and the house is extremely clean and well stocked. The owner is really accommodating and helpful. She gave us so many tips about where to crab and where to go scalloping. We ran into some people from Missouri who were staying near us who had tried scalloping and crabbing but had no luck. We thought that we were going to late in the scalloping season to find many but all four of us got our bucket limit. Our kids loved the kayak and all the garage toys. We will be back next year for sure!!

My dogs loved leaving the beach with sandstaches everyday

  • 4 of 5

We chose this area because a friend recommended it. The rental property was GREAT. It supplied plenty of bathrooms and layout was great for being able to each have our own space. The house was stocked with plenty of beach items to use. The beach cart was nice to have. Our dogs loved being able to walk on the beach. Being able to have bonfires at night on the beach was a luxury as well! The kids caught lots of crabs and even a stingray. The kids loved kayaking when the water was calm and boogie board when the waves picked up. We enjoyed Mexico Beach and St George Island. When it was raining, the area is a bit secluded so the kids were bored and no bowling or movie theater anywhere close by. We also were not aware that stores/restaurants closed at 9pm on the weekend in Port St Joe. We did not use amenities. When we called to book the deep sea fishing, it was free for one and then $80 for the additional person and only got to keep one fish so my son opted not to go because of that reason. Theresa was great to work with and called to check on us when the wifi went down in the entire area. I absolutely loved the house, just wasn't a fan of the secluded area with having teens. Unfortunately, they like the tourist type beaches in case it rains on our trips which it did for 2 out of the 7 days of our trip :( I however, loved not having a crowded beach and being able to have my two mini schnauzers with me to walk the quiet beach in the mornings.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. We are so glad you guys enjoyed the house. I totally 'get' how the adults on vacation love the peace and quiet of our beaches while the teenagers in the families are hunting for a bit more excitement and entertainment! I always ask folks if they have been to our area because we do not have amusement parks, shopping malls, movie theaters or bowling close by and for some families our area is just not a good match. Thanks again! Teresa
