The pool and outdoor kitchen area were the highlight of our stay. Most of our days and meal times were spent outside, enjoying the amazing weather. A couple tiny issues popped up during the week and the management company and pool company were awesome taking care of them. Loads of room in the house, so everyone could enjoy a little time alone when desired. Loved the town, the beach and the restaurant offerings in the area.

We absolutely love this home! We had 8 people and so much room. The outdoor area is absolutely amazing!!! The pool, hot tub, kitchen, seating, ect...... Absolutely Perfect! The kids were entertained all week. The only thing I would change is more blankets and a better mattress in the downstairs bedroom. However, my parents loved the mattress in the master. We wanted to book for next year but the price went up over a thousand dollars from this year. Same week. Out of our budget. :(

The open kitchen, the porches, the location close to the beach, the outdoor entertainment areas and pool and hot tub were amazing.

Incredible! Exactly as it’s presented - exceeded our expectations. Spotless. Comfortable. Relaxing. Everything one needs for a Florida vacation. Outdoor seating and bar area was perfect for watching March Madness. This area is known as the “forgotten coast”, which we loved as the beautiful, sugar sand beaches are wide open and it’s not over commercialized, yet there’s a nice mix of shops and restaurants in Port St Joe’s about 10 minutes away. Patrick was quick to respond to one inquiry. Love the Shellfish Cottage!

Everything about the ShellFish Cottage far exceeded our expectations. It was great for our combo work away from home / vacation trip. The house layout is fantastic. They have thought of everything. We didn’t want for anything during our stay. We had a couple of small issues that were immediately addressed. Beach access is a quick <5 minute walk and the beach wasn’t very populated which is exactly what we were looking for. Can’t wait to visit again!

The place was great. We had one issue and it was taken care of quickly. Only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was the lack of clear beach access and the red tide kept us from even going to the closest beach. Neighborhood was quiet and easy to find.

Loved the area and home. Short walk to the beach.

Beautiful home with great location!

Love the house, location, parking, cleanliness, the amenities and the room inside was great! My favorite was the upstairs patio drinking coffee in the morning watching the ocean, my kids loved the hot tub and how close the beach was. The washer and dryer were awesome (I want to buy that same set!) and such a great area to jog in as well!

Beautiful House! Close to the beach. We loved drinking our coffee on the upstairs patio in the mornings with the view of the beach. This house had everything we needed. Very nice neighbors too!

I loved the house!! It was awesome for our little girls weekend getaway! It was within walking distance to the beach, had chairs, cart, and beach towels for our use as well!!! The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was that I needed to contact someone about small little things to make them aware of it BUT I didn't have cell reception and there wasn't an email for the person close by, on-call. This lead me to emailing the main email of Vacasa.. Oh well. Overall, REALLY enjoyed our stay!
