Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 9

Only steps away from sugary white sand and turquoise Gulf water! Newly renovated cottage will have yourself begging to be in a 'Pickle'. MBR has King suite, private bath and balcony overlooking the ocean and breathtaking San Blas sunsets. Two Queen bedrooms have newly added decks for enjoying unobstructed bay views. Kids room has Twin/full bunk.

Smell the loamy odor of the bay side air begin to mix with the salty astringence of the sea breeze, as the mainland starts to heat up and pull the breeze in. But inside the 'Pickle' the smell of coffee is giving way to the aroma of Old Bay as the place comes to life in that lazy summer-at-the-beach way. Each morning, the most important question becomes (after lunch is resolved) should I walk or ride my bicycle to begin intensive shelling?

Keywords: private house, shabby chic style, BOTH unobstructed gulf front AND bay views, newly renovated, dog friendly, new furniture, new furnishings, breathtaking sunsets, twin/full bunk, 2 Queen bdrms, 1 King suite, ceiling fans all rooms, polywood adirondack and bar stools.

About The Pickle

We travel with our four-legged child, Zorro.

Why The Pickle chose Florida Panhandle

While exploring the area, we discovered San Blas. So we vacationed here 3 times Summer of 2011. We purchased our house late September and began renovation in December 2011.

This Pickle Needs Attention!

  • 2 of 5

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Property location is fantastic! House definitely needs attention. We've stayed at many properties on The Cape and this has been my least favorite. My biggest issue with this house is that it has mold around the majority of the air registers and mold on the ceiling in the closet in the living room. This makes me question the quality of the air being circulated through the home. Other issues include dirty air returns, plumbing fixtures loose, broken blinds, worn carpet, damaged walls from doorknob, and shoddy repair work. And although a personal preference, the mattresses are akin to sleeping on a floor. Property management was ok. My first contact when I booked was very nice and responsive. When we arrived, we had a concern and left a message with the company and never heard back from them. Overall cleanliness was fair. Not happy about the used bandaid and Skoal can found on the floor in the bedroom. We really should have better than "fair" and "ok" for price of this rental. All in all, this property has the potential to be really great! Hopefully, needed improvements will be made. But at the moment, there are plenty of other properties nearby that are much nicer and less expensive!

Reviewer Comments:

A very beautiful setting. We had dolphins just 20 feet from the shore almost every day. The house itself was very nice and comfortably held 6 adults & 3 children. Just a few feet over the dunes to the super soft white sand beach. Port St. Joe is just a couple minutes down the road with all the amenities needed. Very private location, very few people and no crazy partying going on. Had a fire on the beach a few different nights as we watched the sunset right over the ocean. This area really is special and hasn't been overrun by tourism. The state park is very nice and worth a day trip. Food to check out would be the "doughnut" shack about a mile down the road and Joe Mama's Pizza in Port St. Joe.

Had a problem with tv/wifi. Called and within 30 minutes someone showed up. Had to call in someone else. Two other repairman came and stayed with us for almost 4 hours trying to fix the problem. Did not leave until it was repaired. Could not have asked for any more professionalism from all involved. Loved, loved the Pickle and will return.
