Overview

The ultimate gulf-view family beach retreat, Ava’s Beach House offers easy access to all the adventures of the Forgotten Coast from a 4-bedroom 2 full and 2 half bath home designed for kid-friendly travel. Sitting at the mouth of Saint Joseph's Bay, Ava's Beach House provides a unique salt water experience which includes both Bay and Gulf waters.
Nestled on densely tree-lined grounds for complete privacy, the newly constructed elevated beach home lies on the Bay Beach Bike Trail, just steps from a private beach with spectacular west-facing sunsets. All living quarters are conveniently located on the same level for ease of access for all family members.
On the ground level, you’ll find the convenience of paved covered parking for up to four cars, an outdoor shower, a half bath, BBQ grill, and a fenced-in dog run for your favorite four-legged friend.
For an easy beachside picnic or fishing expedition, you’ll also enjoy the use of two beach chairs, a sand beach mat, wagon and rolling cooler. From this home’s convenient location on St. Joseph’s Bay, a premier scallop hatchery, you can catch redfish, trout and whiting, all without losing sight of the house. Fishermen will certainly appreciate the dedicated fish cleaning station. Of course, if you do wander the length of the 2.5 mile conservation beach, the home’s distinctive Ibis weathervane and stained glass window will guide you back. The usually calm waters will provide a serene beach going experience for the entire family. The fish cleaning station is perfect for cleaning that special catch.
Upstairs, this sprawling home captures the spirit of the Forgotten Coast with nautical decor, brightly colored interiors and ocean-inspired accents. As you enter, an open-concept living area invites you to settle into vacation mode with a large-screen TV, full-length sofa and relaxing recliner chairs. Steps away, a modern kitchen offers ample room to prepare the day’s catch with plenty of cabinet space for snacks.
A 6-8 seat dining table allows for family meals with treetop views through the screened porch. Three additional seats at the breakfast breakfast bar create the ideal “kids’ table.” After dinner, take in the views from screened and open porches, both featuring colorful Adirondack chairs. A convenient half bath is located just down the hall.
Whether you’re traveling with friends or your entire family, Ava’s Beach House offers a flexible sleeping configuration with accommodations for up to 12 guests:

A dedicated laundry room keeps swimsuits and towels dry throughout your vacation.

Gorgeous, almost deserted dog beach with shells

"What a week on one of the most deserted beaches in north Florida. The water was crystal clear and my 5 year-old granddaughter could easily swim and play without my having to watch for the next big wave. The house is beautiful, there is a fenced yard for your dog and so much room under the house for playing games or grilling the catch of the day. The quaint little town of Port St, Joe is only 5 miles away yet since the beach house is off the main road, there was little traffic and much of the road is blocked off so you can ride bicycles along the bay and beach with no fear of automobiles. This home was a real gem, super clean and the folks at Natural Retreats were vey helpful. Can't wait to come back next year."

A perfect spot for some serious downtime

"

After “sheltering in place” due to COVID-19 and subsequent fear of being at a crowded beach, we searched for a quiet place that could accommodate our family and our two dogs. Ava’s Beach House provided just that. Much to our delight, we discovered that we were right beside 2 1/2 miles of undeveloped and protected beach. The early morning strolls provided epic shell finds. Additionally, the road beside the protected stretch of beach is blocked and not accessible for vehicles. We all enjoyed bike riding with no fear of cars.
The beach house was perfectly clean, well appointed and private. There is an area under the house that is perfect for riding out the afternoon pop up showers. We played pickle ball and corn hole and had plenty of space to do so.
The grocery store (Piggly Wiggly) is five miles away from the house. Port. St. Joe is a cute little town with a great pizza place - Joe Mama’s pizza.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The customer service is top notch.

"

Dawn went above and beyond for our family. The yellow flies reared their ugly, ankle biting heads and Dawn sent a bug ball to the property. I accidentally left my toiletries at the house and a Dawn promptly shipped them. The customer service is top notch. We will be back.

Best vacation spot

"For the past few years we have been trying out different beaches in Florida to find our perfect place . Well I think our searching can stop here . We got exactly what we’ve been looking for , clear water and no crowds . The areas was perfect for our family of 5 kids . The location of the house was very safe for kids to walk back and fourth as they wanted to without me having to go with them everytime . Also loved that their was plenty of yard for kids to rides bikes and our fur babies to roam . The water was perfect for kids as most of the day their are no waves and never any currents or big waves or no high/ low tides . Kids did a lot of swimming and snorkeling . My husband enjoyed all the fishing near the pier . What we loved most about this beach was no crowds or no silly rules about umbrellas or tents or certain hours for dogs . We were able to put our easy up tent and dogs were able to stay out all day . As far as the actual house , it was absolutely beautiful with lots of windows in front for perfect view of water and sunset every night . The owner was one of the best that I’ve ever had contact with during any of our vacation rentals . Was always responsive and made sure we had everything we needed . I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet secluded place for just you and your family to have lots of outdoor fun . We will definitely be back "
