St. Joe Beach

Everything is new and sparkling clean in this home. Kitchen well stocked as well as beach/ outdoor items. Nice family neighborhood. I would certainly rent again. I nearly forgot though. The plastic on the mattresses was very unpleasant. We had to come up with a work around.

Great Last Minute Find!

When our cruise got cancelled, we decided to go to the Forgotten Coast. Though this house is a couple of blocks from the beach, it's an easy walk and no problem getting there. House even has one of those collapse-able pull carts to load your stuff in. The house had more than enough of what we needed for a family of four with two college-age kids. It does have only one bathroom with not hardly any counter space, but that didn't bother us, we were there for sand, restaurants and relaxing. Kitchen had everything you need, except no salt and pepper. NIce deck to relax on too. I would like to see the addition of a gas grill, but we used the small charcoal one. Furnishings were fine, but nearly all the lighting was overhead type rather than lamps. Amy was very nice to us when we had a request, even gave me some tips on things to see and do. Overall, this is a great place at the right price if you don't need beachfront and a huge home and was very much worth it for my family.
