Fabulous Stay - Quiet, Simple, Lovely
We greatly enjoyed our couples' weekend getaway here. All the other reviews describe the walk to the beach and house well.
What I wished we'd known: the two bedrooms upstairs share a single full bathroom. The second full bath is downstairs. We were expecting two master baths but the arrangement worked out.
Owners: Curt is fantastic and quick to answer calls by phone. Don't hesitate to reach out early.
Great house and views
The beach house was fantastic. Just like the other reviews said, basic but had what you needed. The tall ceilings were gorgeous, as well as all of the wood. Really had a cabin vibe. My family of 4 plus a dog had plenty of space, the kitchen had everything we needed, as well as all of the linens and towels we needed. The beds were firm but comfortable for me, both a queen size mattress. Every room had a ceiling fan, the a/c works really well, almost too well. There were plenty of beach chairs and an umbrella (but we didn't use it). My favorite part was the front porch, enjoying the breeze and staring at the beach.
The actual beach was hit and miss for us. The first day when we took our dog with us we were all attacked by stable flies. That was beyond horrible, drawing blood from our legs. I think it was the combination of the time of year, the winds, and having our dog with us. After getting the appropriate repellant from the local trading post the next days on the beach were awesome (and we didn't take the dog with us down to the beach during the day anymore). My kids loved playing in the sand and water. My husband didn't like the water though for fishing. It was very brown and rough. I'm not sure if that's a usual condition or not. I loved the sunrise and sunset. I took the dog and walked up and down watching the beautiful colors.
Lastly, make sure to wear shoes to the beach and bring needle nose pliers to remove the burrs from your shoes and clothes. Those burrs are so painful! And they get everywhere.
Of note, the area is still recovering from the hurricane last year. Only one business we wanted to visit was closed (Indian pass raw bar) but we went to the other location in town. The area in general doesn't have a lot of touristy places but that's one reason we liked it.
Overall recommend the house and the area.
House was really nice, great tranquil spot by the ocean. The walk to the beach was easy. We took the little path through the grassy/wooded area, and also walked just to the left of house directly in front of us, towards the beach, guy staying there didn't seem to mind. Could not find a way to turn on the lights underneath the house. I could see that it needed an extension cord, but there was none to be found. We bought a cheap one while we were out, and it did the trick. Sorry, we didn't leave it for the next people! The grill/grills worked, though they are in need of some TLC. They are rusting pretty bad, hince the little metal thing to put on top of the grates. Just need to be recoated, but we made it work, and it cooked some good food! Other than those things, perfect house. Port St. Joe seemed to be back on it's feet pretty good. Ate at some good places. The beach is nice and quiet. Let the dogs run around a play in the water for hours. Thanks for a great house!
Post Graduation Get Away
A great place to take your Wife(new college graduate), In-laws, and Doggies on a little vacation. Location is very dog friendly and just a short walk from the beach. This house has everything you will need to really enjoy your time away from it all. I would highly recommend, especially for Dog lovers.
Our 2nd year at this home. We love the cottage feel with excellent view. Well stocked with all you need except the groceries!! Easy walk to beach...almost like a private island! If you are looking for water parks, mini-golf, and high rise condos, this is not for you. Tranquility and perfect for reconnecting with family
