Frequently Asked Questions
What type of items do you include with your rentals?
Our homes come stocked with bed, bath, and kitchen linens. We provide a starter soap & one roll of toilet tissue per bathroom as well as the first liner in each waste bin. We do not provide beach towels, linen for pets, detergents, or paper products.
Do you include beach gear or beach gear rentals with your vacation homes?
Short Answer: No, we do not. Check out places to rent gear under Eat-Play-Shop tab above.
Long Answer: We like to keep things simple at Teresa’s Beach Homes. Our goal is to offer fair priced and well maintained vacation rentals without all of the fuss. For that reason, we do not include any additional services with our vacation rentals, but you are more than welcome to purchase them on your own. Our prices on our homes are priced in a way that typically, compared to our competition, you can purchase well more in terms of rentals and extras than you could renting something comparable with the included “free” beach gear. Some of our homes have beach gear storage closets that typically have a mixture of beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, and sometimes even an umbrella. These items change from week to week and are not guaranteed. Check out our Eat-Play-Shop tab for rental services.
Can I rent a golf cart for my vacation stay?
In the state of Florida it is unlawful to drive a Golf Cart on, next to, or across any unapproved state highway or a roadway that has a speed limit of greater than 35MPH. Cape San Blas Road is both an unapproved state highway and a roadway over 35MPH. Hwy 98 near White Whale & Oaks Rest Barn has a speed limit of 45 MPH. None of our homes currently have legal beach access via ATV, Golf Cart, or not street legal vehicles and we will not provide advice or company recommendations for you to do so. If you need or want a golf cart during your visit to Gulf County I recommend renting a home within side road access to a beach access or out on Indian Pass.
What’s the time/time zone?
Port St Joe, St Joe Beach, Cape San Blas, Money Bayou, and Indian Pass are all Eastern(EST) time. Mexico Beach and further west is Central (CST) time. The north end of Gulf County is also CST (Wewahitchka area.) Our office and all of our homes operate on EST. Mostly everyone operates on beach time though…
What about Beach Driving?
Most Gulf County beaches allow driving with the exception of the mainland beaches (Windmark, St Joe Beach, Beacon Hill) and state parks. In order to drive on the beaches you must have a beach driving permit. You can purchase these from the tax, tag, and title office. Please contact them for information on access points as well as pricing.
