Guestbook comments from the owner

Would you like sun, white sand, kayaking, leisurely bike rides, sunsets, boutiques and fine dining All of this while staying in an exclusive community, in a designer decorated, home, with a carriage house, wonderful kitchen and oh yes, a porch swing/ bed to relax while reading a good book or dining on the deck with friends….

If that doesn't get you how about how about starfish, dolphins, sand dollar nesting grounds, and when snorkeling you can find shells the size of your arm. This is a relaxing wonderful place.

Truly A Summer Dream!

  • 5 of 5
If you want to a retreat from the hustle and bustle, this beautifully decorated home in this perfectly quaint little town will allow you to do just that. The home is so tastefully decorated and equally inviting from the cozy front porch swing (wear I slept many hours away) to the openness of the living room/kitchen area which is simply wonderful for a large group. Not only was Summer Dream a spectacular place to gather with a group, but there are so many unique areas inside and out to capture a few moments of alone time or to snuggle up with a good book. I always have a hard time finding a great place to vacation with our dog and this was perfect. The screened patio makes the perfect dog trot and the beaches were not only magical for me, but my lovable yet energetic weim could have ran the shoreline for hours. The well manicured bike paths were peaceful and beautiful & the locals were kind and genuine and put a smile on your face every time. The holidays as well as good food, good wine and good friends is the reason we stayed at Summer Dream and for years to come I will not only cherish the memory of our stay at Summer Dream, but I look forward to creating new ones as we intend to make this our go-to Florida vacation home.

"Can we live here forever?"

"Can we live here forever?"
  • 5 of 5
We visited Windmark Beach with a Blue Skies Retreat. It was our first family vacation in five years. We loved, loved, loved the Summer Dream beach house. It was spacious and well-laid out for several families to stay together. We loved the swinging bed -- it's a lot bigger than the pictures show! The rooms were big, and every single one was beautiful. Everything was clean, and well-maintained. The kitchen was well-stocked. There was even an ice cream machine! My kids kept asking if we could just live here forever. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Excellent !

My husband and I could not have asked for a better location to have a vacation. Everything we wanted was provided for us. The beach was almost private and we loved that feature! The house was perfect and the layout was even better than the website detailed. We will be back!!!

Lovely Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The whole family had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. It had a very peaceful atmoshere with a wonderful scenery of the other homes and ocean. The beaches were not what I expected as there was a lot of sea weed on the beach. There were not too many sea shells to collect. The nights were very quiet as we all sat around on the porches. The swimming pool was real nice and cool as the days were hot. There were five of the young adults went across the water (ocean) with the kayaks. They came back totally sunburn (I am glad I did not go)! The young adults also rode bikes around the neighborhood. My sweet grandson also had a wonderful time at the swimming pool and laying on the bed swing on the front porch. Our dogs also enjoyed their lovely vacation. It was kinda sad to know we had to leave on our last day at this lovely home. I hope that others enjoy this place as much as we did. All of the rooms in this house was so nice and relaxing. Thank you for letting us stay in your home!!!

The Best Trip Ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip to Port St. Joe was truly wonderful! I fell in love with the Summer Dream home and WindMark Beach!! Everything was so beautiful!!! The Summer Dream home took my breath away. It was so clean and well cared for!! The home was very inviting. We had such a great time. We rode bikes, went to the pool, hung out at the beach, went Kayaking. Everything you needed to make a vacation perfect was at WindMark Beach! I highly recommend visiting this beautiful place. It was very hard to leave and we will be going back. The best vacation we have ever had!!! A+++

Summer Dream is just that - A Summer Dream, and WindMark is truly a treasure!

  • 5 of 5
WOW! We had a truly amazing weekend at your SUMMER DREAM house in WindMark Beach. While we were anticipating a beautiful rental property, Summer Dream is clearly a home and it felt like that the minute we arrived. From the decor to the layout to the furnishings to the smallest of touches (including the guest books and the fantastic album of restaurant options, things to do, etc), Summer Dream was just that ~ a SUMMER DREAM, and WindMark is truly a treasure!

We loved the quiet and peacefulness of the beach and neighborhood, the always available bikes and kayaks, the extremely well kept grounds and the quality of the boardwalks, benches, bike racks, pool, landscape, etc., etc., etc. We enjoyed walks on the beach, floating in the ocean and discovering a multitude of sand dollars, watching the jelly fish (from afar), observing a trio of dolphins playing in the ocean, flying a kite on the beach, saw a ghost crab walking up on the sidewalk/bike path (thanks to a book in your home, confirmed the name of the creature!), sunsets on the beach, kayaking, biking, time at the voluminous pool, making meals together in the gourmet kitchen...relaxing on the porch with the porch swing, and simply put: spending time together. It was time we will always cherish and our weekend at Summer Dream will definitely be a treasured memory.

We do have one negative comment: The days just were not long enough, and our time at Summer Dream was too short!!
