Perfect    Mar 10, 2018

My wife and I and my daughter and granddaughter stayed a week and found the accommodations perfect for us. The open floor plan, screen porch and deck with a wonderful view of sunsets make for a perfect beach getaway. My wife an I had stayed here last year and found the upgrades that have been made to really enhance an already nice beach house. Teresa was very helpful when we transferred from another of her rentals to the Great Escape last Saturday allowing us an early arrival for preserving some of our perishables.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Terry, I'm so glad that you guys enjoyed Great Escape. it was wonderful having you in once again. We look forward to having you all back.

Perfect Beach House    Feb 03, 2018

This was our second year staying in Great Escape for the month of February. We felt very fortunate to enjoy such a perfect beach house for an entire month. We did not want to leave once the month was up! The accommodations are just right for my parents, my husband and myself. We enjoyed the updated comforters on both beds. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed for meal prep. We love the deck for taking in the view and the screen room is perfect when we wanted some shade. The new metal roof and screens give the house a fresh look. We walked the beach twice and day and always paused to take in the sunset, they are spectacular. This year, we enjoyed not only the morning walk for donuts, but also getting fish and shrimp frequently at the newly opened St Joe Shrimp and Seafood's second store, also at the end of the street. Teresa and Terri are always great to work with and quick to get back to you to answer any questions.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Cathy, We were so glad to have you return again this year and are excited for next. We really enjoy our current collection of repeat winter guests and look forward to having each of you every year! Thank you for your kind words.


Relaxing week    Jul 08, 2016

We had a wonderful relaxing week at The Great Escape. The house was in very nice conditions. The kitchen(as many have mentioned) is very well stocked. The screened in porch area was great! That along with the sun deck offer great views of the beach and ocean sunsets! Our son slept on a twin air mattress in our bedroom so the grown-ups could stay up late and watch tv etc...just to note, it is a little tight with an air mattress in the bedroom....but nothing major! We would definitely recommend staying here!


We'll be back    Jun 24, 2016

My husband, our two girls, ages 6 and 3, and our big Labrador retriever had the best time at this beach house. The house was the perfect size for us. I was afraid we might be cramped, but the open floor plan was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Loved having a washer/dryer at the house. They've thought of everything, so you just get to relax! The beach was great, plenty of space to spread out and for our girls to play. The best part is the screened-in porch and the sun deck. We saw several amazing sunsets, and enjoyed our coffee out there each morning. I also emailed Teresa to get recommendations for some activities while we were there, and they were fantastic too. I can't say enough about the Cape area, this house, or this rental group! We'll be back for sure!



Excellent    May 13, 2016

This was our 3rd stay at the Great Escape. The upgrades were a great improvement. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary during this stay.
