Recent Reviews About This Property

"Second time staying at this location and was as pleased as the first time. The only problem was raccoons getting into the trash so take a bungee cord to secure the lids on the trash cans."

Todd E. . from IN, 10/10/2015

"We had an absolutely fabulous time at Port St. Joe !! The rental home we stayed in was Beach Retreat and it was such a wonderful home. We had so much fun. We especially enjoyed the pool, playing in the gulf, walks on the beach and beach bonfires! Beach Retreat is such a lovely home and kept up so nice. The rental agency, Sunset Reflections, is great to work with and responded to our every need. "

. from UT, 09/19/2015

"Four women & one toddler just got home from a wonderful week at Cape San Blas. The home was beautifully decorated & so perfectly organized. The two problems we had were handled quickly & professionally by the management company. We saw dolphins playing right out in front, some amazing sunsets, so many stars at night it was like you could almost reach out & touch. The screened porch off the bedrooms was a lovely place to spend the mornings! The pool was immaculately clean & every morning the bugs from the day before were gone (great skimmers!). We loved the outside shower with hot & cold water! All of the locals were so friendly; the telephone man was even kind enough to share his bug spray while we were conversing outside. The horseflies were vicious but a heavy dousing of GATOR spray did the trick. We ended up not bringing our three pups, but if we had they would have been welcome, as the house was appointed even with pup towels & bowls! And the gate on the porch blocking the steps to the beach was great for keeping the toddler on the porch. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit & did not want to leave. "

Linda T. . from TN, 09/12/2015

"Very satisfied. This was our 2nd stay at Beach Retreat. We enjoyed the beautiful ocean front location with quiet, almost private beaches. My favorite was long walks on the beach to gather shells. My grandkids enjoyed the swimming pool and also had fun crabbing at night. The upstairs screened in porch was great for evenings. The home was clean and had everything needed to enjoy our stay."

Rebecca P. . from IN, 07/04/2015

"This was by far one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had! This house has it all! The pool was nice and cold to beat the heat and the toys kept the kids busy! We didn't have to bring much because everything we needed was already there! It was also nice being so close to the beach! Can't wait until next year!"

Cleotis L. . from Georgia, 06/27/2015

"It was wonderful. The house was everything we had hoped it would be. Beautiful, well planned layout, clean, well maintained. House being so great, we only wish there were no driving on the beach. "

Pat S. . from AR, 06/20/2015

"We had a 3-generational wonderful vacation week! Whether ocean swimming, pool relaxing, porch sitting, or fishing, or game-laying, a grand time was had by all. We also enjoyed several "eateries" in the area. One small caution, if climbing steps is a physical issue for anyone, there are quite a few stairs both in and outside the house."

Lou and Judy I. . from NJ, 05/30/2015

"We had a great time at the Beach Retreat. Everything was as described, if not better. This was our first experience in the Port St Joe area, and it is exactly what we had hoped. We would highly recommend, and are looking at dates for next year. "

Joseph M. . from TN, 05/23/2015

"The rental property was a great getaway. The place was very clean and well kept. We loved being able to have our dogs with us. I would definetly recommend this home. The pool was great??"

. from TN, 05/02/2015

"Beach Retreat was everything we had hoped. The house was fresh and clean. Great care has been taken to make it comfortable and ready to live in. It was not just a shell of a vacation rental like some others we have stayed in. "

. from Michigan, 04/11/2015

"We just returned from the most wonderful week at Beach Retreat!!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home. It was clean, organized (loved the cabinet labels in the kitchen!!!), and accommodated our group of 9 perfectly! We went back and forth from our private pool to the beach many times a day due to the ease. The kids in our family loved the pool and walking the beach to collect shells. We spent every evening enjoying the views from the large deck and spotted dolphins almost every day. The weather was perfect, the beach was quiet, and we felt as though we were in our own little paradise! We have finally found our vacation spot for many years to come. Thank you for sharing it with us. Sunset Reflections was also wonderful to work with. BEST VACATION EVER!!!"

Sarah G. . from KY, 04/04/2015

"Great weather! Kids loved the heated pool. Bonfires on the beach, s'mores, saw crabs at night, ladder golf, badminton, took a trip to Panama City Beach for go-carts (Cobra), shopping, and putt-putt golf (Pirate Island), food on the grill, card games at night. We loved our family time. We took four high school boys and a third grade boy. The upstairs rooms/bathrooms gave them their needed space. Loved that we could see the beach from the house and the outside deck. Mom could sit on the lower deck and read while still watching the third grader fly a kite or play in the sand. We even made a quick trip to the hospital (one of the boys had an ear infection). Hospital staff very nice- had us in an out in time to still enjoy a day on the beach. Our family would definitely recommend this property to our friends. We recommend getting some Joe Mama's Pizza. :)"

. from OH, 03/28/2015

"Fantastic!!! Not one negative thing to say. House was very nice, well equipped, very tastefully decorated. Felt at home when first walked in the door. Had 2 very minor problems, tv remote would not work in a bedroom and a problem with the pool, both were fixed promptly."

Richard S. . from IN, 03/21/2015

"We really enjoyed our getaway at the Beach Retreat. The house had everything we needed and was set up prefect for entertaining! Very nice home and very clean and well maintained! The kids loved the pool and the heated water was perfect for spring time! The beach is beautiful and no crowds at all which made it seem like our own private beach! It was a very short drive to Port St. Joe where we enjoyed pizza one night and Mexican another night. The grocery store was reasonably priced which we don't find in most beach communities! Overall it was a great vacation for our families and kids! "

Tori L. . from Iowa, 03/14/2015

"Property was very clean and the view was just what we were looking for."

Todd E. . from IN, 11/01/2014

"We had a wonderful time and the is always clean and organized. The dogs really enjoyed the beach and so did the kids. We look forward to staying here again. "

. from GA, 10/11/2014

"We absolutely love coming to Port St. Joe and staying at Beach Retreat!! Our very favorite place!! The home is lovely, and feels like home. The pool is awesome and we have loved all the different seating areas outside. It's a real family oriented home that has been maintained perfectly. There seems to be new improvements every time we go there. We have loved how easy it is to just get down to the beach and you don't feel cut off from anything going on back at the house. The water tap at the end of the wooden walkway is a great added bonus. It is the perfect get away home! We love going to the fish market and getting fresh fish each day (we have a chef in our family). And when we don't do that we enjoy the Raw Bar especially on the weekend. The folks at Sunset Reflections are awesome to work with and we're looking forward to our trip in '15. "

. from UT, 09/13/2014

"We had a great time staying at Beach Retreat! This is our third vacation in this area and this is by far the best house we have rented! The house has everything you need and the beach is beautiful. We stayed in September 2014 and it was quiet and not crowded. Our pup and children had a great time!"

. from IL, 09/06/2014

"We had a wonderful week at Beach retreat! The house was exactly as the pictures from the website depicted and was spotless when we arrived. We had everything we needed for a week of fun in the sun with our family and our dogs! The house was only a few miles from Port St. Joe where we enjoyed dinners at Sunset Coastal Grille and Peppers and a little further to The Owl Cafe in Apalachicola for a delicious meal on the outside deck. We spent most of our time floating in the pool, walking on the beach with the dogs, or just relaxing on the deck, enjoying the ocean breeze and views that included daily dolphin sightings. It couldn't have been a more perfect week! We hope to make this our annual vacation spot. "

. from GA, 08/16/2014

"Beach Retreat home was amazing! It was fully loaded with everything you needed. Top of the line finishing thoughout the home from inside out. Enjoyed the private pool beyond words! it was awesome. Truly paradise to have such a beautiful tranquil beach,ocean just steps off the amazing decks of the home. They thought of everything from pool,beach toys,beach chairs,outdoor shower. Our family was truly blessed to experience the sea turtles hatching from their nest on the beach right in front the home and make their to the ocean. It was incredible experience for us all! Beds where super comfortable. Amazing family vacation and would come back in the future for sure! Thank you!"

Tammy H. . from Indiana, 08/09/2014

"Everyone had a wonderful time at the beach retreat, we saw lots of dolphins, and a manatee, also there was a sea turtle nest right in front of the house. The weather was beautiful, and the house had everything we could have wanted or needed. This is our second year at this house and we hope to be able to come back next year."

Joann F. . from MO, 08/02/2014

"Our 2 families found this property to be even better in person than the pictures! The owners have been so thoughtful of the details - little and big. From the fully screened in upstairs deck, Comfy lower deck WITH full gate (for pet and babies), the faucet at the end of the path to the beach, the fully functional (hot and cold with mirror!) outside shower, the pool toys, beach chairs and toys, labeling cabinets for easier use, instructions for tvs, remotes, a/c, etc. Nothing was left to guess. Furniture was comfortable - views are phenominal. The management company does a great job - it was spotless upon arrival. We loved every moment - grilled most every night - enjoyed the beach out the back door and the private pool every day. I'd recommend it to all my friends (but only if they dont take the week I'll want next year ;)"

Trish B. . from ga, 07/12/2014

"We had an amazing time! This house had everything we could have needed and more! I especially loved that my fur baby could come along and be comfortable. I can't wait to visit again."

James D. . from Ga, 07/05/2014

"Beach Retreat is the perfect respite for our busy family. We were able to relax and enjoy ourselves on the beautiful beach. The house was the cleanest rental ever! It is perfectly appointed and organized. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need. One of our favorite things was building a fire on the beach in the evening and getting to know the neighbors. The staff is professional and a joy to work with. We will be back!"

Catherine H. . from TN - Tennessee, 06/07/2014

"My husband and I stayed with my sister and brother and brother's family at the lovely, private, family friendly Beach Retreat. Comfortable, very nicely furnished, relaxing and well equipped. We enjoyed beautiful views, a nice pool and thoughtful touches such as a sand castle kit and many other toys for children, lots of rafts and toys for the pool, comfortable chaise lounges for napping in the sun and balconies on both levels. It was a little slice of heaven."

Pamela D. . from DE, 05/24/2014

"Love this house and this area. The rain cut our vacation short so next year we will wait and go a little later in the year. "

LEANNE B. . from ALABAMA, 04/26/2014

"Rental Staff were terrific! Great stay!

Maureen R. . from Ontario, 02/01/2014

"This is our second season at Beach Retreat and it is perfect in all ways—convenience, comfort, esthetic, seclusion, and the beach at your toes. We chanced on this location while looking for a place we could take our Newfoundland dog. He now believes he is king of the sea. To demonstrate how complete the thoughtfulness of these owners, they have even provided special towels, bowls, and a shade nook for pets. The house with it's steady attendance of dolphin, eagles, and sea birds is difficult to leave, but there are many nearby nature attractions to lure you. Neighboring towns lend charm, shopping, and great restaurants.
We could not offer more praise or be more grateful for our stay.
