    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!

    a guest from Marietta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    Joann F from Silex, MO recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 8/20/2014

      Wow, no one ever gets tired of watching dolphins. Seeing such creatures in their natural habitat is so much fun. We are glad you enjoyed another visit to Beach Retreat and we look forward to seeing you again next year.

    Trish B from alpharetta, ga recommends this vacation rental

    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 ;)

    Catherine H from Knoxville, TN - Tennessee recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    Pamela D from Wilmington, DE recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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.

    a guest from Starrucca, PA recommends this vacation rental

    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.
