The only unfortunate aspect of our stay at this beach house was our vacation was too short! My husband and I, as well as our two dachshunds, have stayed many places in the Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe area. We loved this house in particular! The area was quiet, no immediate neighbors in close proximity, and situated just across the street from the marina. Coffee on the front porch watching the boats leave out each morning was so relaxing! All was clean, decorated very nicely, and this house had so much space I'm not sure we really saw most of the house. The living room had ample comfortable seating. This place would be wonderful for a big family, and we can't wait to bring the whole crew one day. The separate, fully functional cottage out back was adorable! I'm a dog-lover and it's always so difficult to find a place that's safe for them and also has a fenced in back yard. Much to our surprise, the beach within walking distance was pet-friendly because all coastline to the right is not part of Mexico Beach. In order for our dogs to enjoy the beach, we typically have to drive over to Port St. Joe, which for us is a long few minutes of loud howling... There were very few sand spurs around the yard and surrounding area which is always a plus!! We can't wait to return and highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a great vacation in the Mexico Beach area.
