Your Florida vacation will be unforgettable and convenient when you stay at this cozy, colorful cottage centrally placed between the charming towns of Port St Joe and Mexico Beach. A short car ride away you'll be at the quiet beaches and waters of Windmark Bay or the sand and surf of Mexico Beach. A scenic car ride to the gorgeous clear waters and pristine beaches of Cape San Blas will never disappoint. Feel like just relaxing at the pool? Well, that is a convenient walk right across the street from this cottage to the private adult pool, or if you prefer to lounge at the larger pool and hot tub that is a brief walk away. If you're staying in and cooking, the full kitchen or community grills (steps away from this home) possesses all you require for meal prep and clean-up in addition to an open floor-plan concept within the cottage for easy entertaining. Prefer to go out for the evening? A few-minute car ride will bring you into charming Port St. Joe where there are many delicious restaurants with friendly staff ready to serve you. Port St. Joe also offers lovely boutiques for shopping or a 30-minute drive (approx) to historic Apalachicola, Florida, is sure to have a full day of browsing in store for the shopping enthusiast. Whatever your passion, Port St. Joe and the surrounding communities of the Forgotten Coast have the low-key tranquility of small Florida towns or an activity for you, from fishing, biking, hiking, and sunset-gazing to boating, sailing, and kayaking.

Loved the layout and the furniture - plenty of places to sit for 6 adults.

Everything was so stress-free. We received all the information needed to access the home without having to go find someone to check-in. Everything worked and was very clean. It was so relaxing.
Stephanie C.Jul 2021
Minutes to the beach, private, next to the pool, very spacious and clean. Management very helpful(Patrick)with questions and accommodations. If your looking to take a genuine family vacation to spend time and relax this is the place for you. We were very pleased with our accommodations.
Courtney M.Jul 2021
Our family really enjoyed our stay. The home was clean, quiet, and had everything we needed/wanted. The pool is directly across from the house. It was clean as well. The beach access is literally a few minutes down the road. We would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at D117 the quiet little cottage was clean and perfect for our family of 6 adults & 2 children 5 and 2. The operation manager Patrick was amazing and always on top of any questions I had. We will be back next year.
Kathy S.Jun 2021
Loved this home, private, good pools. The hot tub in the complex was not good. The home was clean, comfortable, easy to get to all beaches, near the market and restaurants.
Larry R.Jun 2021
My family and I have traveled to this area every year for several years now, and this is the best place and experience so far. The Vacasa folks stayed in touch with us and made us feel welcome. The condo was better than we anticipated. We definitely would stay here again.
Vivian F.May 2021
We had such an amazing time at D117!!! The house was very clean, stocked kitchen (maybe could have used another spatula, but definitely not a problem because there were other things we could use!). It very close to the beach, although it looks like you might be able to walk on the map, there is a big road that you’d need to cross, so you’ll need to drive, but it takes less than 3 minutes to get there and there’s plenty of parking! Overall, 6/5 stars!! Stay here if it’s available!!
Deborah S.Apr 2021
This home was just great. It had everything we needed for our week away.
The home was clean and well maintained. The Vacasa staff was super helpful and accomodating.
You are close to everything you need yet this is the forgotten coast so it is more laid back.
Really enjoyed all the community amenities that came with this rental. Thanks for a great stay.
Lisa L.Nov 2020
The home was in a perfect location for us to explore up and down the coast. Everything about the home was great. We could not have had a better week.
Blane C.Sep 2020
Conveniently located between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe. Convenient for putting boat in at Mexico Beach or launching at St. Joe boat ramp to go get some of those scallops! Very spacious and clean. Located away from the other units for more privacy.
Haley S.Sep 2020
We have absolutely nothing negative to say about this stay it was fabulous. We wish the weather would have been better but with a fabulous home like this the stay was still very much enjoyed. We will always book vacasa.
Lauren F.Aug 2020
Our family enjoyed this cottage very much for our annual Scalloping trip. It was very clean, accommodating and the kitchen was well stocked! Our kids loved playing on the screened in porch and as parents we were SO thankful for it, as it rained during much of our stay! We have previously stayed in the B’s right near the large pool and hot tub area, but we loved that the pool, even though smaller than the other was literally right out our front door and parking was also right outside the unit. Only thing missing, a dust pan! But we made do with a Capri Sun box! 🙌🏼 Thank you for sharing such a wonderful home with our family!

Secluded,quite,very nice! We will be back
Megan B.Jul 2020
This home was a welcome retreat in the midst of uncertain times! Our family of four had plenty of room to spread out but also enjoyed the living space for family game time. The house had every appliance we needed and the beds were super comfy. We did find ourselves in need of additional paper towels, dishwasher detergent, batteries for the tv remotes and trash bags. (We ate almost every meal at the house so we blew through the ones they provided.)
A side note about the area, a lot of the restaurants are not offering “pick up or delivery” even though they advertise that they are. We were trying to stay to ourselves as much as possible so this was a little tricky.
Awesome stay, great location! We plan to come back. We would book this house again in a heartbeat!

Upon getting in we felt save since it’s in a code gated community. Community is super nice and quite. Usually when we get to condos/rentals the places don’t have detergent, toiletries, soap, shampoo, etc. This place had travel sizes of all of these and laundry pods and dish washer Pods which is a huge plus for me. I always forget and have to run and get some and spend money and space on that. Every room had its own bathroom which is super nice cause I always hated having to walk out in my towel with my extended family or friends hanging around. The pools are super nice and heated. the jacuzzi was a plus. We loved it. We were all stocked and didn’t run into any problems with anything. The house was so nice and clean. I have no complain what so ever. We will keep this place in mind for future visits!
Marsha H.Jun 2020
I loved this cottage! It was secluded from the other cottages which our family liked; we had 3 kids & baby and were not worried about the kids being too loud for neighbors. It is close to the pool & the beach was a short trip down the road. The house was well equipped with kitchen dishes, pot & pans, towels & linens.
Elizabeth S.Jun 2020
We loved the fresh colors of the house. Beds and living room seats were very comfortable. Pools were great. Kitchen was large and nicely appointed, even had good quality pots and pans and sharp knives which so many rentals do not. We had a fantastic week! Only minor negative was the toaster, needs to replaced with a four slice model.
Kristin D.Mar 2020
Very clean home in a beautiful community. It’s very quiet which was wonderful. Friendly community and we really enjoyed getting to know the locals. We would definitely stay here again.
Charles B.Mar 2020
Quiet setting, beautiful home, well equipped kitchen for foodies like me. This unit is a little more private than the others in the community, with no one on either side. Dog friendly was nice. Took ours. He loved it. Took my parents. They took the king suite downstairs. We took the queen upstairs. Stairs are a little narrow and steep, but we had no problem negotiating them. Pool and hot tub looked nice but we didn’t get to try either out. Location is 2.5 miles from downtown Port St Joe and all its eateries and pubs. Took a nice four mile walk each day with the dog on PSJ’s walking path. Meanders through the town behind neighborhoods and city parks. Very nice place to walk. Took a day trip to Apalachicola (one of the prettiest FL towns) and St. George Island. Unbelievable beauty everywhere. Home had very comfortable beds and furniture. Nicely decorated in beach motif. Everything we needed was there. A little confusion with the door lock upon arrival, handled within one minute on the phone by Patrick! Real Johnny-On-The-Spot! Most units are privately owned and everyone was very friendly. Very peaceful neighborhood. Very convenient to everything. Please try the Cucumber Jalapeño Margherita at Joe Momma’s Pizza Pub in town. Unreal drink, better pizza. Loved every minute of our stay.
Elle B.Feb 2020
This lovely home had everything we needed. We were so grateful for the first floor bedroom since we were traveling with our elderly mom. Love the screened in porches upstairs and down. The local Vacasa property manager, Patrick, was terrific, immediately coming over to replace burned out porch lights.
Michelle E.Jan 2020
The home was well appointed with ample, space and storage. It had everything we needed to cook & enjoy our time with family and friends. I only have a few minor complaints. #1: 3 of the downstairs windows would not open so getting a good cross breeze through the house was difficult. #2: When using the washer it knocked against the walls so bad we thought it would break something. #3: The dryer vent was not properly connected so it wouldn’t vent outside like it’s supposed to. #4: The bathroom vanity facade to the upstairs queen bed needs straightened (but that’s just my OCD). Overall everything was wonderful with only a few very minor complaints. We would definitely stay here again.
We appreciate you taking time to leave your feedback with us. The windows are brand new and slightly difficult to open because of this, but we have verified they do all open. The washing machine legs have been adjusted, the dryer vent has been connected, and the vanity is good to go. Thank you!

Big, comfortable, well appointed.
Mildred R.Nov 2019
D117 has everything that a family needs. The decor is very stylish and up to date. My only big problem was the upstairs carpet had not been cleaned; and there are spots everywhere... I did not like that at all. The cleaning Dept gets a rating of 2. Come on, you could have spot cleaned the up stairs. Perhaps the owners could just do away with the carpet, at least my rating would have been a 5 Star!
Thank you for your review, Mildred. The carpet on the upper level will soon be replaced, and it has been shampooed. We hope to see you again!
Robin O.Aug 2019
Loved the privacy and location
Hean C.Sep 2018
House was beautifully remodeled and spotless. My only complaint was the queen size bed in upstairs bedroom. It needs to be replaced since two adults roll into middle.
Mary S.Aug 2018
We loved the house. Great location and awesome layout. We were not able to locate the laundry detergent so we weren't able to start an initial load of laundry as requested. Also had fire ants in the master closet and bathroom. Overall, would recommend and rent it again.
We are sorry to see our guest had a couple of negatives to their stay and wish they had called so we could have assisted by bringing more detergent and sending pest control. These things have been taken care of. Thanks!
Laverne T.Aug 2018
Cottage was lovely. Grandkids loved it. Right across the street from the pool. Only downside was having to load up in our vehicles for beach time. However, the central location made it convenient to visit other beach areas nearby.
Branton B.Jul 2018
We loved our time in this cottage and we highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay near the beach on the gulf coast! This beautifully decorated home is comfortable and you will find everything you need to have a lovely time. The manager is excellent and incredibly accommodating. My kids did not want to leave. :)
Tae C.Jul 2018
Plenty of parking space as long as you request an additional pass. Three rooms and 3.5 bathroom was awesome. Laundry was decent and the parking for boats were amazing. They also have a boat washing station and close by dumpster and grills. This house had most items you needed for the stay.
A few things they may need is a cutting board and a decent knife.
