About Jaimee Underwood

We purchased The Kiwi Cottage in May of 2016 because we love the Port St. Joe area. It is great for fishing, kyaking, bicycling, and enjoying an old fashioned vacation with family.

Comfortable cottage/ Ideally located

  • 4 of 5

Kiwi Cottage is ideally located in the quaint town of Port St. Joe making it an easy walk across to the bay as well as to the diwntown area. We were quite comfortable staying there....quite cozy. Our only issue was with storage in the kitchen....very little cabinet space. We would definitely recommend staying there if you find yourself in this beautiful part. Of Florida.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Since, then, we have added all new pots and pans for the kitchen. Also, I am looking into more storage areas for the kitchen. Thanks for the suggestions. We hope to have you as guests again in the future.

Beautiful cottage with huge yard!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage and huge yard were great accommodations. Extremely beautiful and comfortable master bed. Quiet and secluded location but only a short distance to the bay, Perfect yard if you have your boat with you. We really enjoyed it!

Lovely week in a lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Jaimee's cottage and loved it! It was super clean, bed was very comfortable, AC was spot on, and water pressure was great. Those are the 4 things we care about the most. After a fun day on the bay, it was a great place to come back to and relax. The kitchen is well stocked with updated appliances and the rest of the house's decor is lovely. There is a TiVo on the living room TV which was a great surprise. This cottage had everything we needed and more. We can't wait to return next summer. Thanks, Jaimee!
