About Jack and Jill...

We are from Kentucky! We own and manage the beach house ourselves and take pride in keeping it clean and updated and personalized with special amenities! We are just ordinary people - Jack is an electrician and Jill is a middle school teacher.  It has become a special place to us!  We took a leap of faith to follow a dream of owning a beachfront home in hopes of finding wonderful renters that return each year that enjoy our beach house as we do.  We hope you love and enjoy your stay at Jack & Jill's Beach House as much as we do.  

Why Jack and Jill chose Port of Call at Miramar Beach...

We were previous owners of two units at Tradewinds and absolutely fell in love with the area.  We weren't exactly in the market to buy a beach house, but the most perfect beach house in the most perfect location became available for sale and we could NOT pass it up!  We love being just a few steps from the beach, but love being able to retreat back the beach house for calm, quiet, family time.  We love being able to park in our own driveway and not worry with parking passes.  We love the floor plan of the house, allowing for privacy with a split bedroom floor plan.  We love not having to wait for an elevator.  We love the outdoor patio with the gorgeous palms, and the ability to sit in the sun or shade.  We love the quietness and calmness we feel in Port of Call, with only 15 total houses.  We love walking right out the front door to the pool and enjoying the pool or the covered shade by the pool.  We love being on the bike path, which gives us a 5 mile path of walking or biking along the shore. We love the pool and spacious pool deck.  We love being right across from Pompano Joe's, as well as being able to walk to other restaurants, souvenir shops, or to get coffee or ice cream, yet a short drive to outlet mall shopping, many other great restaurants, and area attractions (Harborkwalk Village, Big Kahuna s Waterpark, Gulfarium, etc). Most importantly, we love being able to walk a short walk and have our toes in the sand!  It is our own little piece of paradise and we hope you love it too!

Amazing Stay!    Dec 27, 2023

review star

What a top-tier experience! We loved our getaway at Jack & Jill’s beach house! The property was very nice—exceptionally clean, well-maintained, nicely furnished, and the best location. Very quick walk to the beach and our favorite restaurant, Pompano Joe’s. Jill was a wonderful host. She was easy to communicate with, accommodating, and made sure we had a great experience. We can’t wait to come back!



Great place!    Oct 01, 2023

Would stay here again...super nice and very clean! Couple minute walk to the beach or hang in the pool right out the front door across the street. Patio is a nice area to chill after a long beach day or early morning. Highly recommend Jack & Jills Beach house!

??Amazing home with Perfect location !??    Aug 24, 2023

review star

This was a perfect home for a week for my husband and myself, along with our daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren!! Home is beautifully decorated feels like home away from home! Having the pool across the street was a great asset for the grandkids and even grandma and grandpa too! ?? the beach, was amazing with the provided beach service as an extra perk! Communications were great with the owner. It was so nice to have the back patio as a come to spot after coming back from the beach to hose any sand and saltwater away! We look forward to returning to make more family memories at the beach??????????



So much fun in the sun!    Jul 24, 2023

Our stay in Jack and Jill’s home was such a blast! The house was instantly a home to us. So clean and cute and comfy. The pool right out the front door was great for the morning and then the five minute walk to the beach and lunch/dinner at Pompanos Joes(we did both, love that place). We will return for a repeat!! Thank you!

Amazing place to stay!!!    Jul 22, 2023

review star

The layout of the house is perfect for families traveling together. Very open and large. Back yard is great and grand kids enjoyed it. The location is what makes it stand out from others. Pool is right out front and short walk to beach but you get so much privacy. Home was very clean. We will definitely be back.



Beautiful Beach Home!    May 07, 2023

review star

This house was perfect for our family of 5. Our first time to the panhandle and was completely impressed by this house and the location! The house has all the beach vibes and very well maintained and felt like home. The pool was amazing and the short walk to the beach was perfect! We would definitely stay here again and recommend to our friends. Thanks Jack and Jill!

Beautiful Home and location for a Relaxing Vacation!    Feb 01, 2023

review star

Thank you again Jack & Jill for everything! It's always great when you rent a home and the photos, descriptions, and reviews are exactly what you get! Along with walking into a house that is clean - a big thank you to your cleaning person. We truly enjoyed the back patio on a daily basis! This was our first trip to the area and we loved it! The location is perfect for walking to the beach, pool, stores, restaurants, and so many other activities available in the area (many of them we will visit again next year!) We also met so many friendly people and their pets on our many walks! Jack and Jill are exceptional hosts to communicate with if you have any questions. We look forward to our stay next year! Thanks again!



Piece of Paradise!    Aug 20, 2022

We’ve stayed twice now in Jack & Jill’s House at Port of Call and we’ve loved it! Very clean, spacious house that’s beautifully decorated in a modern beach theme decor. It’s within walking distance to one of the best beaches in Florida! Perfect location to restaurants and shops! Love the community pool. It’s quiet and most of the time we have the pool all to ourselves! Jill is very responsive to any questions or needs. We’ll be back!

Amazing!    Aug 13, 2022

review star

What a wonderful home filled with so much beach charm. Great location and everything you need to feel like you are right at home. We have stayed in several vacation homes through the years and this was by far the best (super clean and full of everything you need). Just steps from the pool (which felt like our own private pool) and a few more steps to the beautiful beach. Our family of 9 loved every single moment of our time in Miramar Beach. Thank you Jack and Jill! Your home is a vacation dream!!!

We have been renting from Jack and Jill for several years and each year it keeps getting better. The level of care and detail to make our vacation special each year is truly amazing. The house is beautiful and set up perfect with all the amenities you need. We highly recommend this vacation spot!

Perfect location, Beautiful House    Jun 16, 2021

review star

This was our 3rd year to Destin, all 3 times we have stayed in a property owned by Jack and Jill. This year we stayed in a wonderful spacious home. The pool is right out the front door and the beach is just a minute away. We go to Pompano Joes quite frequently, we also enjoy a short walk down the street to get rolled ice cream. Next year will be year 4 and we can’t wait!!



ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!    May 08, 2021

review star

This house was perfect! Perfect location, perfect decor, perfect size! It had everything you need for the perfect beach vacation. And it’s across the street from beach but a VERY short walk. We really enjoyed being off the main road as it was quiet and cozy when sitting out back drinking your morning coffee in private. They truly have a beautiful home and I can’t imagine staying anywhere else. Jill was great to work with! Will definitely be returning to their lovely Florida home. I highly recommend staying here!



If I Owned a Beach House - I'd Want It to Be Just Like This One!!!    May 08, 2021

review star

I can't say enough good things about this house! It is so comfortable and cute and I LOVE the location. It's a quick walk to the beach from the low traffic side road and within quick walking distance of dinner and happy hour spots! The pool was right across the drive and was never crowded and was very clean and well maintained - my husband likes a break from the beach. The neighbors were friendly, too. I loved drinking my coffee on the private patio area which has ample seating. It rained for a bit and that was a good place to hangout. I liked the layout of the house a lot. I'm not sure if was professionally decorated, but it looks like it was! And plenty of hooks!!! I love having plenty of hooks to hang damp bathing suits and towels from. Really - everything about this house was thoughtfully done. We will be back!



Awesome House!    May 03, 2021

Great location, beautiful home!    Nov 01, 2020

review star

We loved our stay at Jack & Jill's Beach House.  The location is perfect.  It is less than a half of a block, 4th house from the beach, and it literally takes one minute to get to the beach!  The house is spacious and beautifully decorated!  We had plenty of room for our family of 6 and everything we needed to cook meals in.  The beds were comfy, each bedroom had a smart tv, and the patio is so nice!  We will definitely be returning!

LOVED IT!!!!!    Oct 29, 2020

review star

We absolutely loved this place.  The location is perfect!!!  A one minute walk - it is literally less than a half of a block to the beach with easy beach access.  We took the stairs but there was also a ramp.  We loved just strolling the walking path and met so many nice people.  We walked to dinner, souvenir shopping, to get ice cream, and loved just walking around looking at all of the beautiful homes.  The house has everything you need.  Kitchen has everything for cooking meals, wifi was good (we had to remote work), beautifully decorated with a neat coastal vibe, comfy beds, huge SMART TV in living room, outdoor area is very nice and private.  Jack and Jill responded immmediately to questions.  We will definitely be back!



My new vacation spot    Oct 24, 2020

review star

We just spent a wonderful week with wonderful weather in the most wonderful beach home!  Jack & Jill's Beach House was perfect for us.  Everything is new, very clean, and we loved the nautical decor.  The walk to the beach is very, very short.  We thoroughly enjoyed getting up each morning and taking advantage of the walking path.  It was so beautiful to be able to walk safely along the shore line.  The house is in a perfect location as we were able to walk to dinner as well.  We really loved not having to look for parking or waiting on elevators, and the house was fully equipped with everything we needed.  We have found our new spot on Miramar Beach!  Thank you, Jack & Jill, for being lovely hosts.  


We have a great location, not even a half of a block to the beach.  It takes a minute or two depending on how fast you can walk!  It is the 4th house from the beach on the right on Newman Drive.  
We usually get a car when we fly in because the uber ride each way to the airport is $45.  You can almost rent a car for that for a long weekend!  But if you do not have a car, you can walk to several different restaurants, souvenir shopping, ice cream, etc.  Sometimes when we drive, the car never leaves the house because we walk so many places.  The nearest grocery would be Winn Dixie at 1.5 miles.  
We use a GPS door locking system and will issue you a door access code one day prior to your check in.  It will work for the duration of your stay and expire at check out.  No one else will have access the house!
Yes!  We provide bed and bath linens.  We ask that you do not take them to the pool or the beach.
We provide a starter supply of these things...2 trash bags, 2 rolls of toilet paper, 2 laundry tabs, 2 dishwasher tabs, dish soap, hand soap, and one roll of paper towels.  Please be prepared to bring with or purchase additional supplies if needed.
Simply pick out your chair and the attendant will come to you.  Just let them know you are staying at Jack & Jill's Beach House!  Our beach service set up includes 2 chairs and 1 umbrella!
