  • Excellent property and helpful owners


    We have been coming to Port St. Joe and Cape San Blas since 2010 and have stayed in a different house or condo each time, sometimes for a month or two and sometimes like this time, just one week. This cottage was the cleanest and best maintained of any we have stayed in. The owners pay a lot of attention to details that really make a difference in the overall comfort of their guests. The check in procedure and front door entry is well thought out and works perfectly. The nice plantation shutters on the doors and windows provide very good privacy in a close environment with other cottages. We have stayed in another unit there where the curtains just didn't close adequately. We didn't cook meals there but the kitchen is equipped with most everything you would need. The bathrooms are furnished with nice towels, soap and shampoo and the beds are comfortable with lots of pillows. Each bedroom has a TV in addition to the one in the living room.

    After an enjoyable week at this cottage and upon arriving home my wife discovered she had lost her very old and precious engagement ring. I emailed Scott and asked him if his cleaning person could look for it when she came. He immediately contacted her and very shortly reported back to me that she had found it. He coordinated with his cleaning lady to have the ring packaged and insured and is on its way to us as I write this review. This is a caring owner who pays attention to detail and the comfort of his guests. Thanks for everything!

    We and our two teenage daughters had a great stay! The Forgotten Coast is the perfect place for a family that likes to read and take long walks on the beach, eat out a little, shop a little, and watch some movies together at home.

    This cottage is the perfect home base for those activities. It is very clean, spacious, and welcoming.

    It's well-equipped with bedding, towels, beach towels, dish soap, hand soap, bar soap, dyer sheets, stain spray, cooking oils, basic spices, and enough dishwasher soap, laundry detergent, and trash bags to get you started. It's a full kitchen with all the pans, silverware, knives, measuring implements you need and more than enough plates, cups, and bowls. My family loved the coffee bar--Keurig and regular, sugar, cream, etc. I loved that there was good English Breakfast tea and a selection of herbal teas--we tea-drinkers usually get shafted with just a couple Lipton bags. This owner thought of practically everything!

    The cottage is just a 3-minute drive from Windmark Beach, which is beautiful and also had few people on it. There are other beautiful beaches, including a few state parks, within driving distance. The location was perfect--no premium for beachfront, but were still able to run off to the beach to quick see the sunset.

    One note: you will hear road noise from the porches, but when inside the house you can't hear the kids in the pool or road noise unless you're really listening.

    We were sad to leave and we hope to return regularly.
