  • Our return visit: Pleasant stay but disappointed by some unexpected changes.

    3/5

    We fell in love with this place during our visit in the summer of '23 and eagerly planned our return. However, a few changes since our last stay were disappointing. Firstly, despite the listing stating a Keurig is provided and there was one last time we stayed, it had been replaced with a regular coffee machine. After notifying the host, they promptly provided a Keurig for us to use, which we appreciated. They've always been very responsive.

    The biggest letdown was discovering a newly erected rock sea wall upon our arrival. Previously, being steps away from the water was a major draw for us, but now we had to haul our gear about 50 yards down the beach sit with our toes in the water. This was a significant change not mentioned in the listing or shown in outdated photos, which was misleading and disheartening. Had we known about this major alteration, we would have likely considered other options.

    Despite these issues, we still adore the area, the cottage itself (though blackout curtains in the bedroom would help), the fantastic restaurants, and the attentive hosts. However, our second visit didn't live up to what was advertised or our expectations.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Steve, we’re sorry to hear that this year didn’t meet your expectations. After discussing your feedback with the owner, they would like to address the following points:

    -We sincerely apologize for the change in coffee machine. Based on previous guest requests, we had switched to a regular coffee pot, but we have now decided to provide both options for future guests.
    -The rock sea wall was a recent addition for property protection. We understand this significantly impacted your experience, and we will update our listing photos to reflect this change. Additionally, we will provide a wagon to make transporting beach gear easier.
    -We appreciate your suggestion about blackout curtains and will be installing them in the bedroom soon.
    -We would like to offer you a partial refund for the inconvenience and disappointment you experienced during your stay. I have asked Evolve to contact you in regards to this. Please be on the lookout for that soon.

    Thank you for your insight, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again next year.

  • Quiet & relaxing beach destination

    5/5

    Peaceful beach setting. Small town feel. If you want to go to the beach to relax and perhaps fish, this is the area. Not a party beach. We were there in early May. Older crowd. Actually, no crowds. Very quiet. Private beach. Lovely.

  • Beautiful location and property!

    5/5

    My 10-yr-old son and I spent 6 nights here over his spring break. It was absolutely perfect for the two of us. The property is spotless, and we loved utilizing the well-stocked kitchen. The beach is literally in the backyard, and we spent hours walking the shore, finding treasures, and enjoying the beautiful scenery. It’s a very quiet and safe neighborhood, which made it incredibly relaxing. Port St Joe is a 5-minute drive, and we loved exploring the shops and restaurants of Reid Avenue.

    It was such a pleasant surprise that every single person we encountered during our stay was SO kind, helpful, and sweet.

    Make sure you check out the lighthouse, Forgotten Coast Sea Turtle Center, and save an evening for a special dinner at the White Marlin.

    Cape San Blas is an easy drive from WindMark, and we enjoyed a day at the gulf-side beaches of T.H. Stone Memorial State Park. LongBill’s is a fun spot for lunch or dinner.

    We also did a snorkel adventure through AquaBear Adventures. Such a fun way to get out on the water, and we had so many dolphins swimming alongside the boat!

    We can’t wait to come back - thank you Sheila and Cliff for sharing your amazing space with us!
