About Dennis Zagata

We live in Michigan but wanted an untypical getaway and we found this property and had the house built for us. We use this to recharge our batteries.

Dennis Zagata purchased this house in 2002

Why Dennis Zagata chose Florida Panhandle

The beach and the temperatures drew us as it is not as scorching as lower Florida yet it does not freeze - close to where most of the oysters get pulled from - imagine 6.95 a dozen!!! Close to the Air Force base and Panama City. Not as densley populated as other areas and you can drive along the coast and actually see the beach for 12 miles plus!!!! We can park the car at house and walk to restaurants, grocery and beach in less than 2 minutes. Semi private access to beach.

What makes this house unique

When it is busy its not busy, groomed beach white sand, double sand bar( no rip currents) protected by Cape San Blas - if weather comes in we get to stay on beach and see rain in Port Saint Joe or Panama City. Small relaxing town.

I recommend raw oysters but especially the baked varieties at Reagans ( 6.95 Doz ) 1 1/2 mile east

Raw oysters and calamari across the street at Toucans

Fish Tacos and fish at Killer Seafood in front of us

Mexican at Peppers in St Joe

Fish House for Breakfest ( 1/2 mile) or Sharons 30 seconds walk

Oleander Home 75 steps to the Beach!!!!!
average rating of 4.8 based on 30 reviews

This vacation rental was all we hoped for and then some.

  • 5 of 5

The Oleander House was the perfect fit for our family of 4. We loved the front porch, the ease of getting to the beach and the amenities provided. The owner was so quick to assist when there was a small issue with the AC. He obviously wants others to live his home in Mexico Beach and wants others to love it too. We plan to return next year.

White sands & ocean sounds!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of December, 2015- blessed as weather was abnormally hot! Our home was clean, lovely and exactly what you see in the photo's...we walked on the pristine, white, white beaches, enjoyed the front porch view while reading & relaxing. We aren't night life folks but walked across the street to the Toucans restaurant & bar, drank a beer and knew this was a real hot spot. Young adults will love. Grocery's are 10 miles away but no biggy cause if you love getting away from the hubbub, relax, the "forgotten coast" is GOLDEN! We enjoyed immensely.

Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the beach house and were pleasantly surprised. The house was clean and well kept up. It was very conveniently located to places to eat and a little grocery store. More importantly, however, it was so close to the ocean and when we took our 6 month old to and from the beach we didn't have far to go at all! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone else interested in a relaxing trip to Mexico Beach!

A Trip to Remember

The location was wonderful! The house was great! We had everything we needed and enjoyed every single moment. The only bad part of the whole trip was having to leave. Thanks so much for the hospitality!
