New listing! Family-friendly getaway w/ large balcony & patio - steps from sand!

Relax in bliss at this perfect home away from home, offering a screened porch, a balcony, and everything you need to slip right into vacation mode. With summery tones and beachy decor throughout, this retreat boasts an inviting ambiance that the whole family can enjoy. In your downtime between beach sessions, you can kick back in the hammock on the balcony to escape the heat while the chef of the group fires up the gas grill and cooks some burgers. If barbecuing isn't your preferred method of cooking, you'll be glad to know that there's a fully equipped kitchen inside, featuring a gas range, beautiful granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, so any recipe can be tackled with ease. The bar seating and the open living area make entertaining large groups a blast!

What's nearby:
Ideally positioned mere steps from the sand, this home will spoil the beach-goers of the group! As soon as the sun comes up, head out to the shore and collect seashells with a warm cup of coffee in hand. When you want to venture out a bit, historic Port St. Joe is just four miles down the coast, offering a wide variety of restaurants and shops to explore. The coastline is full of beautiful beaches and bike paths, including the three-mile Windmark paved waterfront trail, that will make for a day well-spent. The nature lovers in your family can take a drive to the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve Nature Center, the St. Joseph Bay State Buffer Preserve Visitor Center, St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, or Salinas Park for a memorable nature walk. Hit the links at the St. Joe Bay Golf Club or the St. James Bay Country Club, or book a fishing charter, a horseback ride on the beach, or a pontoon boat rental. Be sure to check out the Cape San Blas Lighthouse while in town, or take a fun-filled day trip to historic Apalachicola.

This was a perfect house for our group of nine to meet for our annual gathering. We enjoyed this house so much. The porches and balconies were wonderful. Very large and gave everyone space and privacy. The large sofa was great for gathering and playing games. It was nice to be able to walk to the pool and to the beach. We plan on booking this same house again next year.

We took 8 grandchildren, 6 adults, bicycles and a golf cart for a long weekend. The weather was perfect and so was the house.

The house is beautiful and the check in/out process was easy and seamless. There is plenty of room in the home and it is stocked really well!

A few things, the screen door was broken when we got there, so my husband actually fixed it. There were no trash bags left by the cleaners, but not a huge deal. There also is a lot of stagnant water from what I presume are all the storms that went through the area recently. Unfortunately, this produced A LOT of mosquitos, so we couldn’t enjoy the cute fire pit. It really needs to be pumped out.

However, the positives are really amazing! An extremely short walk to the beach! We drove by the pool, but didn’t use it. The house has wonderful showers and great amenities! The sectional is a great meeting spot for everyone! The village down the street is still being developed, but looks like it will be a great addition.

Just a suggestion- having bikes available would be amazing! There’s a great golf cart trail that is in the front of the neighborhood and would be great to bike!

Thanks to these great home owners and to Vacasa for another great vacation!!! We would definitely book again!
Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Heather. We apologize maintenance missed repairing the door prior to your arrival and are grateful for your husbands efforts. We were unable to get anybody out to pump the water due to everyone being booked from the recent hurricane. This will be addressed as soon as someone is available. We hope to see you again!

We enjoyed the fact the kitchen had most everything you would need to cook even including spices! Wine cooler too!

Had a great stay here with the family nice home walking to the beach was easy just a short walk . Couch in the living room was very comfy . Kitchen had everything we needed as we cooked the entire week . Plenty of porch space to relax on as well. Only complaints I would say are poor water pressure even with just one person showering our awesome shower upstairs would only run one shower head and some electronics not working Like TVs upstairs couldn’t get to work To watch anything but in one bedroom and surround sound wouldn’t work to watch any movies downstairs with surround . These are minor issues and we would love to come stay here again because we could not beat the deal we got for the amount of space and people that could stay it’s just set up real nice
Manager response:
Hi, Brandon! We have a plumber scheduled to take care of the water pressure, and we are getting all of the electronics checked out. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you again!
