To make your vacation more enjoyable and less stressful, your reservation includes a $250 credit toward any amount of quality beach gear.  Your gear will be delivered the day you check in and will be ready to use immediately.  Some items you may rent, but limited to, are beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks, paddle boards and bikes.

Soulshine Beach Retreat is a gulf front, custom-built home designed with a true “family vacation” in mind. This beautiful home accommodates up to 24 guests and features 9 bedrooms (7 gulf front), 9.5 bathrooms, 2 full kitchens, 1 kitchenette, 3 open concept living areas, and over 3,000 square feet of gulf front decks offer amazing Gulf of Mexico views. The outdoor haven features a private, heated pool (optional for an additional fee), a private boardwalk to the beach, an outdoor shower (hot/cold), and miles and miles of pristine beach to explore.

Located in the beach community town of Port St. Joe, Florida, this vacation rental offers easy access to families interested in enjoying the slow pace, traditional Florida experience. Always just a quick drive away from boutique shopping and amazing local eateries, families can enjoy a day shopping or head out on the water of St Joseph Bay for awesome fishing.

For families interested in getting out of town for the day, it's a quick drive to Panama City Beach and Apalachicola, both offering something for everyone of all ages. Beach living is at its peak here, so it's easy to lose the day hiking at Cape San Blas park (previously St. Joseph Peninsula State Park) or just catching rays on the private, uncrowded beaches.
This home has a 7-night minimum during peak seasons with check-in and check-out on Saturday, otherwise, a 4-night minimum is required. An additional fee of $40/night for the heated pool.

This home is NOT pet-friendly, with no exceptions.

When you are ready to venture out, visit nearby Port St. Joe for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.  Downtown offers cute shops along Reid Avenue, many restaurants, and grocery stores.  Do not forget to check out the historical Lighthouse and Sea Turtle Museum. We love our sea turtles!  Less than a 5-minute drive you’ll discover quaint Mexico Beach with restaurants, and shops.
