Why Mark Barnhart chose Port St. Joe
Since I love to travel and enjoy the ocean, especially the ones with the sugary sand, I decided to buy a vacation home on the gulf coast of Florida. The beaches are among the finest in the world! . Beacon Hill area is a step back in time to Old Florida with views facing west across to the Cape for spectacular sunsets. Beacon Hill is located high above the dunes overlooking the Gulf. It is the home to a lighthouse that once used to keep ships off the shallow shoal. Beacon Hill Park offers tennis courts, a nature trail, covered shelter, and a playground.

Excellent location. The house has a great layout and all amenities were so much appreciated. The owner and housekeeper were so accomodating about answering any questions we had. We would definitely recommend this property and owner.
Easy location and great beach close.
We enjoyed our month plus in this fine cottage. It’s clean, well organized and simply right for people who enjoy walking the beach, sleeping well with great internet service and a fine shower. The Simple life.
Wonderful stay. House was great.
Very nice clean home in great area
Great fenced backyard for the pup, only steps from the beach, close enough to grab stuff to cook in stocked kitchen, nice & quiet front porch & screened-in back porch, very nice TVs in all rooms, WiFi is excellent. Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent for Doggos
Aside from the proximity to the beach which BTW is awesome, just a mere block away, the thing I loved most about this cottage is how super dog-friendly it is with a large fenced-in backyard and lots of dog bowls and toys. There is even a crate on the screened-in back porch. My 3 doggos thorougly enjoyed their stay. Although we didn't need it, there's a dog waste station with bags attached to the front of the house. Mark thought of everything you'd need to travel with your 4-legged kids.
As for the cottage itself, it is well stocked with everything you could need...lots of extra linens, garbage bags, pots/pans, etc. There is also no shortage of cable channels and the WIFI is extremely reliable and strong. I was able to get a lot of work done during our stay.
The cottage is in a super safe and friendly neighborhood known as Beacon Hill. We met many of the neighbors and fellow dog owners at the beach and on our daily walks around the neighborhood. Despite the hurricane from which the area is still recovering, there were lots of options to dine-in or take out (shout out to Mango Marley's down in Mexico Beach and Paul Gant's in PSJ, both opertating out of food trucks, and Sand Dollar Cafe also in PSJ) and St. George Island and Cape San Blas are only a short 55-min drive away which I highly recommend.
I definitely recommend renting this cottage. Mark is also a great host, very responsive and accommodating.
Home is in a quiet residential neighborhood. Beach open to the public is only one and a half blocks away.
