' There's a marvelous, peaceful aura in your property there. Can't be just the marvelous setting. Must also come from the care you give it.'

from a review by Marty

Come and enjoy our white sand beach, beautiful water, and perfect sunsets. This unique, beachfront house is the only home on a 600 foot stretch of white sand beach (that means that no house is jammed against you on either side).The spacious open floor plan features hardwood floors and tile baths, flat screen tvs, dvd players, and wifi, plus a fully outfitted kitchen and laundry room make this a perfect house for your vacation needs.It is designed with a central wall that has sets of pocket doors between two sides so that it can be rented as one whole unit (six bedrooms, two kitchens, two living rooms, etc.) or the sets of sliding pocket doors can be closed and it can be rented as two units. During the months of June and July, we only rent it as a whole unit. It is a well thought out, architect designed home that features simple decor - wood floors throughout and simple, functional furnishings. Each bedroom opens onto the Gulf breezes. It features two huge decks that span the whole gulf front of the house where rocking chairs are waiting for the guests, making the gulf front location a perfect place to watch dolphins and sea birds.

Our Gulf County beaches were voted the number one beaches in America several years ago and many people describe this as 'Old Florida', comparatively unspoiled and unfrequented by the hordes of vacationers. We have sunsets that take your breath away and the beach is your front yard, only steps down your private walkway.

This home is located on a stretch of beach known locally as 'the Beaches' and is made up of Mexico Beach, Beacon Hill Beach, and St. Joe Beach. It is the spot where the beautiful white sand/blue water beach begins (and extends west) in the panhandle and there have been several Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues shot here because of the natural beauty of the beachfront, our beautiful dunes, and impressive beachfront plant life.

The owners live nearby and are able to give the property the attention it deserves. Please read our comments to get an idea of the relaxing nature of a stay here.

Please do not contact us for price reductions;we are already well under local market value.

No weddings; No parties are allowed on the property.

Our house rents Sunday-Sunday for weekly rentals all summer and in April.

NEWS FROM ST. JOE BEACH- Changes have occurred in our area. Panama City has built a new airport and the airport features service by Southwest, Delta, Silver, and United Air as well as other airlines. .

Sacred Heart Hospitals has opened a hospital in Port St. Joe, 7 miles east of the beach house on Highway 98. It features a 24 hr emergency room and greatly expanded services for the area. In Sacred Heart on the Gulf's first years, it has received very high ratings for professionalism and courtesy.

                                                          Ruth C.

                                                          Our family of 16 had a great time here! Kitchens were well stocked and owners checked on us as soon as we arrived. Air conditioning problem was fixed promptly. Porches were so relaxing.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Happy to hear that your family enjoyed relaxing on our large covered porches. I hope you will return!

                                                          Great family beach house

                                                          Steve P.

                                                          The house is set up great for hosting multiple families. There is a ton of privacy at the beach. It's like you have the entire beach to yourself. The location is great...you are convenient to St. Joe and Mexico Beach. Great place to eat right across the street. The owner communicates well and stays in touch to make sure there are no problems. This was our first time and we will definitely be coming back in the future.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks for pointing out our "privacy"- St' Joe Beach beach is relatively uncrowded and we like it that way! We are looking forward to welcoming you back.

                                                          Fantastic family vacation

                                                          Alison T.

                                                          This house is extremely functional for a large crowd (we had 10 adults and 7 kids). The outdoor decks are really great too. When we arrived the house was very clean (4 of the kids were under the age of 2 so clean floors was really important to us). The beach is great, very close to the house and nice white sand. We had a few rainy days and there were puzzles and games there to play. The restaurant across the street was really good too. The owner is very attentive and is available for any questions. We already booked for next year!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks for pointing out the cleanliness of our beach house. It's our goal to have have the cleanest house on the beach. We will be looking forward to your visit next summer.

                                                          Family friendly for our Griffin Reunion

                                                          Jackie S.

                                                          The home is family friendly, with lots of room. We loved that we were right on the beach. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the porches while in the rocking chairs. The ocean water was beautiful and clear and fishing was great. We caught whiting, pompano and a hammer head shark. There's also a friendly crane that will stand around ALL day to wait on your throw backs. We even took a snap shot of everyone in the rocking chairs to mock the picture in the house. The house is close to so many shopping areas and restaurants. We had bunches of fun and lots of laughs.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          I have to admit that I was disappointed. Although, most vrbo owners would say that a four star review is a good review, this is our first. After many years of handling our one, family owned beach house and receiving only 5 star reviews, I wondered what we had not excelled in. In order to stand out , we have devoted ourselves to three things: extra effort to meeting our renters requests, utmost cleanliness, and quick response to any needs or complaints.

                                                          Please read our other reviews. (and note the stars)

                                                          It was great! This was our second time staying here. The private beach is perfect ! This time, I even had my seven week old baby and it was so nice being able to be on the beach with him but be super close to go in as needed. Between my brother and I, we had 6 kids and they waves were perfect for skim boarding!

                                                          Across the street is one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. It's About 25 steps away! Best oysters ever!!!!
