Nature, beach, food, and peace    Jan 03, 2023

What a beautiful home! We had everything we needed. Stayed a whole month and it felt Like home, I didnt want to leave! The owner karisa was amazing and there anytime I had a question. Port St Joe was amazing with great food, people and history. The surrounding cities where the same. The VFW in Port St Joe was a diamond. I will will never forget those people. The sunsets on the porch and morning coffee off the the back porch listening to the birds in the preserve was breathtaking. My dog was so mellow and loved the beach as much as I did! So much fun that I will never forget! Thank you again Karissa!

Beautifully appointed bay home with everything you need during your stay on the Forgotten Coast! The home is exceptionally clean and has a number of inside and outside areas where you can relax and spend time with the family. Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas and Apalachicola are close by and offer numerous restaurants, shops and outdoor activities. This home allows your fur babies (2) as well. Thank you Karisa for opening your beautiful home to us during our stay!!

First visit to Port St Joe-Can't wait to come back!!    Aug 19, 2021

The house was perfect for us! I love the openness of the kitchen and living area, and the front and back decks. We cooked seafood and steaks one night in the area downstairs. The location is perfect, it was within 5-10 minutes of everything that we did- shopping, dining, walking the beach, and the horseback ride. We plan to return very soon and stay here again!!! Loved it :)
