Looking for a quiet place to vacation, just you and the family? Well look no further than Absolute Serenity, a 2 bedroom/2.5 bath single family home with large sleeping loft.

There are two decks on the gulf side also with nice furniture offering great outdoor dining opportunities. There are quite a few stairs in this property, so it might not be the best fit for those with bad knees. Absolute Serenity is simply a great house at a great value!

Absolute Serenity in Port St. Joe

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home! Felt private. Even closer to the beach than advertised, and easy to transport wagon with kids and gear. Just needs new, more comfortable furnishings.

Other reviews were spot on about the view. Not really a view at all, just the pine trees and other homes close by. The stairs are internal and are VERY steep. sofas, beds and bedding are a bit "tired" - but it's a rental. When the manager tells you to pack everything, they mean it. First place I've ever rented that left no trace of anything, no dishwashing liquid, no salt/pepper, etc. No problem, just know that going in. Our biggest problem actually was the property management company. After a long day on the road, planned to get there right at check in time... we arrived 15 min early to find the cleaning crew just arriving as well. We were told they were not only just arriving but waiting on linens to be delivered, and it would be at least 45 more minutes before we could get in. We called the management company, asking why it wasn't ready; busy weekend was their response. When asked why we didn't get a call or text (everything to that point was so efficiently digital and prompt), "we have 233 properties and we can't possibly do that!! (Like all 233 were behind schedule?). The person was seriously rude to us in how she spoke to us. Not exactly the best start to the vacation week. All that said, the house is fine. No view, but conveniently located. The walk to the beach is not bad, and certainly not as long as many other places on the island. We won't book through that property management company again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback on the property and our service. There is definitely no excuse not to receive polite service regardless of the situation or the time restraints. While it is true that the Saturday following the 4th of July is our busiest time every year we do our very best to have every house ready for arrival at check-in time. Regardless I'm glad to hear you plan to continue to return to Cape San Blas even if maybe it isn't in one of our properties.

No view, and no beach access.

Why on earth would an owner own property on a pet friendly beach if they hate dogs!!!! If you love dogs I wouldn't stay at this residence!!!

Owner's Response: I completely agree, if you love dogs and want to bring them on vacation with you then this is not the house for you - mainly because it's not Pet Friendly. The good news is we have many properties that are for those that want to bring dogs and many that aren't for those that don't care to have pets with them.
