About Carrie Shevlin
Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love visiting The Cape. The relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the area keep us coming back year after year. I will be managing your stay at Good Fortune and can be a bit of a perfectionist. That's a bonus for you, as I promise that I will do all I can to make your time at The Cape absolutely wonderful. We are confident you will love The Cape as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions about our home or the area.
Carrie Shevlin purchased this House in 2012
Why Carrie Shevlin chose Port St. Joe
We visited The Cape for the first time in 2001 and immediately fell in love. The water was perfect, the beaches weren't crowded and we could bring our dog. We especially like the North end of The Cape because it is very quiet. The amazing T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is so close to the house and the dune structure on that beach is like none you have ever seen. It is also a very short walk to Coneheads from our house...ice cream, oysters and cocktails…what could be better?
What makes this House unique
We worked really hard to think about how we could make this house as 'easy' as possible in which to vacation. Just a few things that make Good Fortune pretty special: 2nd Floor Outdoor Shower - Off of the master bathroom there is a private outdoor shower. This is the only 2nd floor outdoor shower on The Cape! Bunk Room - The kids will love their built-in bunk room. Each bunk has an individual light for reading before bed. Amazing Reclaimed Beadboard Ceiling - We love old things and wanted to add some historic touches to our new home. The entire ceiling in the 2nd floor living space is made of reclaimed beadboard from Valdosta, GA. It's beautiful! The only ceiling like it on Cape San Blas is the one at our other home, Beach Camp. Huge Outdoor Shower Under the House - I really don't like my dry things getting wet when I shower in a small outdoor space. We've made our outdoor shower large enough so your clothes and towels never get wet. Quiet Dishwasher - I promise, it's quiet. Large Pantry - Our kitchen has a large, walk-in pantry so that all of your groceries can be stored out of sight. Huge Decks - There are two very large covered decks that span the entire front of our house. You can get a glimpse of the Gulf from the first floor and have an amazing view of the Gulf from the second floor. Both are accessible from the living spaces and the two master bedrooms.

Perfect Vacation Getaway!
First of all, this house is set up to maximize your vacation experience. Privacy when needed, 2 areas within the walls to socialize, comfortable bedrooms and the kitchen - equipped to handle any meal. All this and a wonderful balcony to enjoy your views of the ocean. In the event we return to the area, we will be staying at Good Fortune.
Beautiful home which has everything needed for a great vacation.
Owners have gone above and beyond to provide renters with everything you might need while on vacation. Wife felt home was absolutely the best stocked and furnished home we have rented anywhere in Florida. Carrie has done a wonderful job finding unique treasures to decorate, making this truly feel like your sharing a friends home. Pictures really can’t show you all that has gone into making this an exceptional home. Highly recommend Good Fortune for your next trip to the forgotten coast.
Thank you so much for your review! I was thrilled to welcome you to our home for the New Year Holiday and I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you too for being such great guests. We hope to welcome you back to Good Fortune again soon.
Fantastic for family vacations!
This was our second year in a row staying at Good Fortune and it did not disappoint! As always, the house was emaculate. Carrie makes sure her guests arrive to a clean, organized house perfect for guests of all ages. Won't be surprised if we book there again next year!
I am ecstatic that you and your family had another great stay at Good Fortune. It is very important to me that when a family visits Good Fortune for a second (or third) time the house is the same as when they left. I am happy you found it such during your trip. We would be thrilled if you chose to stay with us again in 2017. Thanks again. Carrie
Everything we were told it was! The house is near the beach, has stunning sunset views and the family loved it all week. Will definitely book again when travelling to the Cape.
Mike and Jan,
I am so happy that your family had a fantastic stay at Good Fortune. We look forward to having you as our guests again in the future.
Good Fortune indeed!!!
My husband and I were blessed to have the opportunity to have our intimate wedding and family vacation at Good Fortune!
Carrie was incredibly accommodating, supportive, and thoughtful throughout the process. She was and has been consistently available and able to assist with any needs that we had during our time in Cape San Blas.
The house is absolutely beautiful. It is actually even more lovely in person than the very accurate pictures depict! We had our small wedding on a Sunday afternoon, and the setting could not have been better! The boardwalk and beautiful open beach area is just in front of the house, easily accessible, and the pool was perfect for the kiddos. The open concept kitchen and dining areas are great for family dinners and socializing. (We love to cook in while at the beach, and the kitchen is fully equipped!) We especially enjoyed having two balcony/outdoor sitting areas, perfect for a glass of wine with a sunset view.
As our family stayed throughout the week, the space was just perfect! Having two sitting areas with rooms spread out made for a very comfortable vacation. The house is truly as depicted, with a beautiful coastal, rustic, and contemporary feel. It is lovely, comfortable, and very welcoming.
Thank you Carrie! Everything was just perfect! We could not have picked a better location for our special day and family vacation. Truly thankful...and fortunate!
Thank you so much for your sweet words about our home. We are so happy that you had a beautiful weekend for your wedding. We feel fortunate too that you found Good Fortune. Best wishes for much love and happiness.
Cannot say enough good things about our stay at Good Fortune! We have been coming to Cape San Blas for 4 years now and this is by far the best house we have stayed in. From the location on the Cape, to the convenience to the beach to the beautiful decor, we had an amazing experience. With 2 small children and loads of baby beach gear, it was so easy just walking up the private boardwalk with everything. Walking back and forth to the house wasn't an inconvenience because it was so close. The pool was directly across the street and we were always the only people there. The setup of the house was perfect for our group and there was plenty of room for us to hang out in the living room. The balconies are large with perfect views. We enjoyed watching the sunset every night without having to leave the house. The kitchen had everything you would need and it was so nice that there was already a highchair and booster seat for the kids. Carrie was so wonderful and accommodating and such a pleasure to plan with. We can't wait to stay here again next year! Thank you for putting so much thought into making your guests feel so at home!
Thank you for your kind words about our home. I am so happy that you and your family had an amazing time. I am thrilled that you found the house so easy and comfortable to be in. We look forward to hosting you again in summer 2017. Carrie
