About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time staying at "Sea Esta" this week! Coming from the busy city of Dallas, Port St. Joe has been a nice change of scenery. Listening to the waves, horseback riding on the beach, walking down the beach- just a few experiences we all had this week..to top it off, a relaxing shore front beach house. Spring break has come to an end, so we're all headed back to Dallas this morning, but we all enjoyed our stay.

Our Favorite Place!
Cape San Blas is our favorite place to visit! We love the area and ALWAYS enjoy our stay at the Sea Esta. This is a beautiful home and is not lacking for anything. The new living rooom furniture this year was great! We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises/sunsets and strolls along the beach. We see dolphins almost daily. It is absolutely breathtaking! Lots of photo opportunities. We drive into Port St. Joe for shopping and dining. While out we found a new restaurant to try, Joe Mama's Pizza, which was a great dining experience. David & Penne (the owners) and the staff at Coastal Joe's are very accommodating and great to deal with. Very polite, courteous and eager to please. Thank you David & Penne for sharing your beautiful home. We can't wait to visit again. Highly recommended!
Sea Esta is the Besta Once Again !!!
We really enjoyed our stay again at the Sea Esta as usual. We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary there for two weeks. This home is one of the best that we have stayed in on this area of the coast. We really enjoyed our stay at this exquisite house. The beach, views, weather, the whole experience was to die for. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great time as a couple or a family oriented vacation. Thank you David & Penne, for being very easy to work with and accommodating us with your beautiful place. We look forward to next year!
Beautiful home, upscale as advertised. Best quiet beach location
Home is the best we have stayed at yet. Well maintained and has everything you would possibly need for your vacation. Loved the beach area. Very quiet and romantic. Will be back
Great home & location!
We recently spent a week at Sea Esta. The home is very well maintained, and we loved being able to walk out the door and walk only steps to the beach. The home easily accommodated our group of 7 adults and 1 child. The only "negative" things about the house were having the kitchen/main living area on the third floor and not having access to the elevator for unloading all of our luggage and groceries at check in. The beach in front of the home was clean and almost completely private. This area was perfect for our 3 year old son because there were no crowds of people and the surf was very calm. However, I was disappointed that the water was cloudy and brown, not clear as I had expected. Fortunately, we had absolutely NO issues with oil! Overall, we had a great vacation and would definitely recommend Sea Esta and Cape San Blas to others who are interested in a laid back trip to the beach!
