Home near the beach with shared pool, water views from screened porch & WiFi

Enjoy a neighborhood home by the sea in this bright new home with plenty of ocean-themed decor! This spacious newly built home with an unobstructed view of the water is one of the biggest model ranch homes in the area at 2306 square feet. This gem of a retreat has a newly built, 20ft x 17ft screened-in porch with water views, the only one in the neighborhood! There's is enough room and seating for the entire family. Additionally, you can also admire gorgeous ocean views from here.

Feel free to relax in a newly built home by the beach that is equipped with brand new furniture, including mattresses and kitchen items. Relax in central air conditioning, enhanced by newly constructed white walls and wood-style flooring that will help everyone stay cool and comfortable. A private washer/dryer will take care of all the swimsuits and towels. Take in the water views outside - feel free to run across the street to the boardwalk and head out to the beach! Guests can also enjoy access to the community pool just half a mile from the home. After a lovely day together, enjoy winding with a beverage on the porch. The desk set up in the living room will serve guests looking for a space to complete remote work or schooling assignments. Once you're done, it's just a short walk to the beach!

This roomy home is all on one floor, so it's easy to navigate and choose a room for yourself. The first bedroom (down the hall from a full bathroom and just to the left of the front door) features a twin-over-double bunk bed. The bedroom just next to it features a queen-size bed. The third bedroom features a queen bed and is set next door to the private washer/dryer. This cluster of bedrooms is perfect for younger guests to gather, while the main bedroom lies across the home and adjacent to the living room. This room features a king bed and a television. A full bathroom with a standalone shower, soaking tub, and double sinks is just down the narrow hallway. A door divides the hallway from the main living area, creating the feeling of your own private suite. The home is full of new furniture for guest comfort.

What's nearby:
Walk just across the street, and you'll encounter beach access full of sand and native plants. Port St. Joe is known for its fishing and oysters, so there's plenty of charters around if you're bringing rods and reels! Stop by Cape San Blas Lighthouse (just under four miles away) and take in the view from this lovingly preserved lighthouse. If you're looking for a bit more of an adventure, drive out just over 22 miles to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. This lovely state park is just across the bay and features the Maritime Forest Nature Trail as well as prime spots for fishing.

The floors were a little dirty, but everything else was great. We loved the house and location. The restaurant “View on 98” food and service was amazing. We had planned to have our wedding on the beach but the weather did not corporate. View on 98 was willing to help us in any way we needed. I love pizza, wings and a good salad and Bruno’s did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend this house.

Everything in the house is new and good quality, the only thing happened to us is the living room TV screen is broken when we checked in. But they sent a new TV on next day. Location is good, 3 mins walk to the beach. Swimming pool is far away and kind of hard to find , so we didn’t go. Overall, house is new and clean, we really enjoyed the stay!

The house is brand new, very fresh, and beautifully styled! The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware. We were bummed that basic pantry items weren’t left by other renters, but we left our salt, pepper, oil, vinegar and a few other things in the hopes that it will start a trend. We did the same with laundry and dish detergent and trash bags. The beds were super comfy …I even nabbed the name of the mattress before we left. There were a few beach items in the garage including four folding chairs, three buggy boards, a few pool noodles and some sand toys, which were all much appreciated! The house also has a new screened in porch which isn’t pictured. All in all, it’s a great house with a great layout. A few recommendations are to add door mats both inside and outside all doors, including the garage door. The floors had some sand still on them when we arrived and it only got worse from there due to lack of doormats. The other recommendation is to add hooks and lots of them! We were a party of ten …that’s ten bath towels + ten beach towels + ten bathing suits and nowhere to put them to dry. Bigger utility hooks would be great in the garage too, to help hang chairs and beach equipment.

The community has a lot of potential, but doesn’t seem to have the level of maintenance required of such an extensive property. Our stay was in June of 2021 and I know staffing has been challenging to a lot of sectors due to COVID, so I don’t want to be too harsh but daily cleaning of the pool was not done and the pool had a lot of debris on all but one day of our seven-day stay. Another recommendation would be to have a curated book of tips for renters: lists of restaurants, equipment rentals including bikes and golf carts, local fishing excursions, etc., with special notations for anything located in Windmark town center.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Ashley! We're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and we're grateful for your feedback. We will work with your comments to enhance the experience for our guests. We hope to host you again soon!

Loved the home. Only recommendation would be to add a few kitchen items needed... measuring spoons, food storage containers, larger skillet.

New construction, ideal location. Beautiful, clean, and very roomy ranch on a corner lot close to the beach. This was a great house – large with comfortable beds,new furniture, and an amazing living room for lounging and watching movies. Art work was nice from the moment you walked through the front door. The décor was tasteful and very beachy. The kitchen was well stocked. We cannot wait to return.

Gorgeous house with plenty of space for sleeping, eating, and hanging out. All the furniture was brand new and very clean. Great location, super close walk to the beach. We felt very safe. Each bedroom had its own T.V. and included cable. The house was very clean and well equipped. Close drive to both Mexico Beach and Cape San Blas. We had a great time!
