Perfect!

This home was lovely, clean, well maintained, tastefully furnished and stocked with everything we needed – and then some. All three generations thoroughly enjoyed the spacious accommodations, wide open beach and welcoming heated private pool. Working with Teresa and Terri couldn’t have been easier. They were always available, and instructions and expectations were clearly communicated. We’ll definitely be back! Norris Family, Atlanta Metro

Awesome Beach House

I have stayed at It’s A Shore Thing multiple times. This was my first stay here under this rental company. They were terrific during the whole booking process and the stay. They kept me updated on the Cape amd things happening leading to the trip and during the trip. The house was in excellent condition. After 10 years of vacationing at Cape San Blas, I would highly recommend this home and company. The recovery since Hurricane Michael has come along way. The Cape still has the same laid back family vibe. Excited to stay again in the future.

It's a Shore Thing

Luxury on the beach

We booked Oak’s Rest Barn with Teresa’s Beach Homes with a little skepticism. After reading the description of the house, we felt weird staying in a triangle shaped home and wondered if we’d made a mistake, but when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised! The house was immaculate and even though triangle shaped, you’d never know if from the inside.Everything was pristine and we were so pleased with all the attention the owner had given to detail. Everything was high end, from dishes to flooring!It took us a few minutes to figure out how to work the elevator, but it was great considering our sixty plus year old knees and sure saved us a lot of time and trouble when checking in with all our luggage and leaving too.The location was spectacular! Right across from the Gulf Country Veterans’ Memorial park and it was so close to the water’s edge, we only had to walk about 75 to 100 steps!The pool wasn’t heated when we were there in December, but my daughter jumped in anyway. Apparently, the owner stops heating after Thanksgiving because the constant running of the pump during winter months can cause burn out.The entire time we were there, we felt so blessed. This was the best beach house we’d ever stayed in and we’ve stayed in many!We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets every single day while there from the convenience of one of the private decks or while walking along the water’s edge.The home is conveniently located between Mexico Beach and Port St. Joe. We were able to visit our favorite spots within minutes.We love using Teresa’s Beach Homes because of the simple check in and out procedures.If you’re looking for a beautiful, luxury beach home, check out Oak’s Rest Barn. Yes, it has a funny name and a funny shape, but there’s nothing funny about it. It’s simply top notch and we’d book there again in a heartbeat.

Fantastic Stay!

We were a little worried that our beloved cape would still be down and out because of the hurricane,but were pleasantly surprised to find our usual house, Horizon, and Cape San Blas were in great shape! As usual the house had all the space and amenities we’ve come to expect. It was spotless and so conducive to our family’s needs. Some of the protecting dunes were a little washed away by the storm, so we felt like the beach view was even a little better. Had just as much fun on our rental boat on St. Joe’s bay too! Will definitely be back! P.S. We DID miss Indian Pass Raw Bar. I think they’re reopening in Sept though!

Horizon

Perfect Week

We so enjoyed our week at Shore Thing! The house was roomy, and so close to the beach. The pool was so refreshing after a day on the beach. I didn’t think the adults would use it, but we sure did—everyday! The master suite was on the top floor and super nice; for the grandparents, having an elevator was especially helpful! We enjoyed watching sunsets and the night sky from the roomy balconies. We had a problem with the septic tank (that was due to the hurricane I’m sure), but all it took was one call, and a repairman was there within the hour. I think Theresa and her daughter are delightful, and are what makes Theresa’s Beach Homes THE BEST PLACE from which to rent on the cape! Wonderfully hospitable, professional, and determined to get things right for their vacationers, we will definitely use them again.

What a wonderful time we had as the only pitfall was that we only had a week!!!! We have rented on St George Island many times, but our stay at the Cape and with Teresas was outstanding and we’ll be back for sure.Keep safe and COVD free Y’all!Warm regards, the Burger family from Tallahassee

Three years straight

This was our 3rd stay in the Great Escape. The views were amazing as usual. Ate breakfast outside every morning. We love this place and hope to be back next year. The 4 legged babies love it as well. Work continues in the area but it is a small inconvenience compared to the beauty of the cape. Can’t wait till next year!!!!

Lovely house, great pool!

Beautiful, clean house and a great saltwater pool. Kitchen is more than stocked with cookware, etc. Comfy beds and furniture. We’re spoiled for beachfront so we did miss the view. Elevator would be a great addition to an already great house. This was my first rental with Teresa and we were beyond pleased. Had a little garbage disposal issue when we arrived and I’m almost not exaggerating when I say a friendly fellow was knocking on the back door before I hung up the phone. Very proactive and forthright property manager!

Another great trip!

This was our 2nd stay at the Grey Whale and it was once again wonderful. We have stayed in several houses in the area over the years and this one by far has the best beach access which is greatly appreciated when taking kids back and forth to the beach! The closet downstairs had plenty of beach chairs which came in very handy & the kitchen is well stocked. We noticed a leak in the kitchen sink one evening but we called Teresa and it was repaired by 8 am the following morning. The only downfall to this house is just the number of stairs. I know most of the larger, beach front homes will have this issue but it would be something to consider if you are traveling with very small children or adults who have a hard time maneuvering a lot of stairs. Overall, we have always had a great experience with the Grey Whale and with Teresa’s Beach Homes!

Fantastic Vacation

The home was wonderful. It was exceptionally clean and the kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the golf cart access to the beach at Emerald Isle. Even on the chilly days, the heated pool was used and very pleasant. We are loyal renters of Teresa’s Beach homes and have been for several years. It would be hard to beat their communication and response. The staff that we have met have been kind and courteous. Can’t wait to come back down in May!

Wonderful Beach Home

Rented Shore Thing in July of 2019. It was the perfect vacation home for a large family. Plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, large kitchen (with everything you need), elevator, pool, excellent views, close to beach, adequate parking. Would stay here again and again. The best fit I’ve found for my family. Also, Teresa’s Beach Homes is a wonderful rental agency–you will not be disappointed.

Amazing Family Vacation

My wife and her sisters plan a trip to the beach every summer. My brother-in-laws and I make sure everything is set up for them and the kids to enjoy. Oak Rest Barn provided the perfect amenities for all of us to enjoy an amazing week together. We made sweet memories that will last a lifetime. Teresa’s was great to rent from.

Beautiful, quiet beach house!

We stayed for a week and loved the house and heated pool. The beach was quiet even during spring break and filled with shells! My boys loved being able to swim even on cooler days. We had an issue with a thermostat and they were able to get it fixed quickly. We look forward to returning!

Much needed vacation!!

This home is gorgeous and the views and location are even better! We decided to spend spring break in Florida this year and try to forget about COVID! This home provided exactly what we needed. Literally just steps from the beach and when it was too chilly for the ocean, we hopped in the heated pool. The home is beautiful, plenty of room to spread out for all of us. We are already talking about next year back at this house or another one of Teresa’s Beach homes. We just loved the Port St. Joe/Cape San Blas area. No crowds, very laid back and friendly people! Can’t wait to go back!

Thanks so much for a great week!! This house was perfect for our family of 6 with kids from teen to toddler! We had everything we needed and felt very comfortable. We would definitely rent this house again – it was very well maintained. The screen porch was on point!! Had another great vacation at Cape San Blas. Already counting down until our Thanksgiving trip with the grandparents at Avalon.

Perfect fit for our family

We started renting from Ron and Sandie after Hurricane Michael devastated our home we have been staying at for years in Mexico Beach. When we discovered Teresa’s Beach Homes, and Met Terri. We knew this would be our new home away from home. We have stayed at a couple other of their homes, but Tranquil Seclusion is the best by far. We felt like we belonged, like we knew this was the one for us going forward. They treat you like family, not like an inconvenience. We declared that this will be the home we come to going forward, and I have to say (family all agreed) the screened in porches are a game changer. Hurricane Laura thought she was going to derail our plans, and she failed. This is by far the most beautiful home you own we have stayed in. Thank you for allowing us to make family memories at your home. Next year, our 1st Grand daughter will be with us. I can not wait to start making family memories with her at Tranquil Seclusion.Thanks again Ron and Sandie and Terri. see you guys next year. The Glass Family from Dayton, Ohio. Kevin, Benita, Jesse, Taylor and Kristina.

A perfect week in a perfect beach house!

We had such a wonderful stay at the beautiful, comfortable and perfectly appointed Sandy Footprints. The space was exactly the right fit for our group. We used the kitchen for several meals and it was equipped with everything we needed. We spent time in the pool everyday and the short walk to the beach was easy. We had our pups and they loved the house and the covered deck where they watched us as we swam in the pool. We loved the restaurants and stores we visited on cape especially Weber’s Donuts! The piggly wiggly in Port St Joe had everything we needed to stock up for the week. My kids (adult and teen) and the friends they brought all thought it was one of if not the best vacations they had ever been on. Hope to be back!!

Just Perfect

Loved this beach home. It is situated perfectly in the middle of Cape San Blas right on the beach. The shared pool was awesome for the teens in the evening and was well maintained. So convenient to have Scallop Cove 2 blocks away for quick items that were forgotten. Loved that the main balcony was on the top floor. We had awesome views and nice ocean breezes. We are already planning our visit to this home in 2021.

This is our 5th year of vacationing on the Cape, and our 3rd of renting with Teresa’s Beach Homes. I highly recommend Teresa’s! Repeat guests are even given a discount.

Outstanding Customer Service

Knotty Pelican is a very good vacation rental. The only thing that could make it better is an elevator. Amenities are nice and the house is very clean.We must give Teresa’s Beach Homes five starts plus for their outstanding customer service. One of our guests forgot an expensive pair of prescription sunglasses upon checkout. I was able to get in touch with Terri and she contacted one of the persons getting the house back in order (Missy) for the next rental and they were able to find the glasses and get them returned to us.It’s great to know there are still honest people in this world (and to reward them) for doing the right thing.We have rented from Teresa’s Beach Homes in the past and have always received five star plus service.Thank you to you and your staff!!!!!

Our favorite place to stay in Cape San Blas!!

McCosh is perfect for us in so many ways. Pet friendly, with a perfect gulf front view, we always enjoy our time here. Teresa and Terri are always responsive if anything ever comes up. They are an excellent property management team! The beds are comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the deck furniture offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a cup of coffee while watching for dolphin to swim by. The house is always clean and comfortable. The community pool is beautiful, even though we don’t usually get a chance to use in in the winter months. The location on the Cape is right across the street from Scallop Cove, which we appreciate when we need supplies. The owners there are super friendly too! We will be back!!!

Beautiful home

We had a wonderful stay in this home! It’s well appointed & had everything we needed! The community boardwalk was rarely used by others, as well as the community pool. The handful of times we went to the pool, we had it to ourselves. The view was beautiful from the balconies! The only thing I would change would be that the outside shower was actually enclosed where others couldn’t see in. We had a great stay!

Avalon

This is our third stay with Teresa’s Beach Homes, second time in Avalon. Avalon is a beautiful 4 story home with a private pool and gorgeous views of the ocean. It had everything we needed and then some. Our two pups enjoyed the beach and the elevator was very helpful since one of our babies has arthritis really bad and stairs are difficult for her. Teresas Beach Homes care about their homes and the Cape and everything was immaculate. I wish we could come and stay in one of their homes every year. Our week was very relaxing and it was pure bliss to walk our dogs on the beach every evening.

Always the best!

We’ve been renting homes from Terri and Teresa for over 10 years. They always go the extra mile to make our family vacations the best. Any issues we’ve run into have always been handled quickly and professionally. They are a family run business that really cares about the community and their guests. Their rates are always competitive and the properties are very well maintained.

Great Stay

We had a great time at this house! It was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed. The pool and surrounding area were nice, and actually very private despite there being other houses beside this one. The beach is very quiet, clean, and dog friendly. We had concerns about hurricane damage to the area, but the Cape has recovered quite well. Shops, grocery stores, and restaurants are up and running. The people are still as friendly as ever. We look forward to going back for another visit!

Horizon is steps from a beautiful stretch of the Cape that was ideal for relaxing and soaking in the the natural beauty of the area. We enjoyed the nearby pool and the comfortable furniture there.Terrie, and Teresa were very pleasant to work with and provided assistance in renting a cabana from Happy Cabana. They setup and removed chairs and cabana each day.

Absolutely Perfect

I must first start by saying that Terri and Teresa are a big part of having a perfect week. They go above and beyond to accommodate their guest, and we really appreciate all their hard work. The best part is when they post the rate on their homes, it is all inclusive. That means a lot because there is no sticker shock with lots of surprise fees that have been added in to get to the grand total. I wish every person and/or management company would make this a common practice. McCosh is a lovely home with a great beach access. I think that the reversed floor plan does makes it seem like there are a lot of stairs, but there are no more stairs then the usual beach home. The home was very clean and everything was in good condition. There was also plenty of parking. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to renting from Teresa’s Beach Rentals again soon.

Great place to stay!

If you enjoy no hassle booking and no hidden fees give Terri and Teresa a call. The house we booked was beautiful with an unobstructed view of the gulf! Being an old Navy man I particularly enjoyed seeing the “green flash” again! If you don’t know what that is it’s as the sun sets the very thinnest edge before it drops below the horizon turns brilliant green. Do stop at the grocery store before you check in as groceries are very limited on the cape.

Gratitude

Myself and 4 of my childhood friends came together to celebrate 3 of us turning 60. Each one of us suffered extreme pain and loss within 10 months. My beautiful son passed away, we had 2 mothers, one father and a beautiful brother all called home to Jesus within 10 months apart. The healing power we all experienced was tremendous. We cried until we laughed and laughed until we cried. The setting and surroundings of this home was amazing. We are grateful to the owners for allowing us to rent their beautiful welcoming home. Thank you so much!

Teresa’s is the perfect rental company to work with, and Great Escape is a fantastic home for a small family with pets. The deck and screen room made rinsing and drying big dogs a breeze, the walk-over from the house to the beach made for easy access, and the house itself was comfortable.

Can’t Wait To Return

The house is beautiful, clean, and most comfortable. For those who may need to have a working vacation, the Wi-Fi was great. My favorite part…walk right out of the door on the ground level and the boardwalk to the beach is connected to the carport! The beds are comfortable. High-quality linens and comfortable mattresses. The kitchen was amazing with everything you could think of that you might need to make the perfect meal. The views from the lower screened in deck and the upper open deck fabulous, with comfortable seating. If bugs happen to be biting, the screened deck still allows beautiful views and sounds of the ocean, minus bug bites! The house looked brand new, inside and out. We were close to The trading Post, Webers Donuts, Ice Cream, and St. Jo Shrimp Company among other places…including Scallop Cove.

Would I return? In a heart beat!. In fact, returning next year

Horizon is located on a spectacular section of the Cape with large natural sand dunes.. The wrap around deck offers views off the gulf and bay, A second floor seating area, or an observation room, offers outstanding views of the gulf. It’s a perfect place to watch the sunset. The home is well appointed and super quiet inside. The beach is just a few steps away via a neighborhood boardwalk. The neighborhood has a beautiful pool and pavilion that is a few minutes walk from Horizon.

What a beautiful home Emerald Isle is!!!
Waking up in the morning and being able to hear the surf while drinking coffee on the deck has to be one of the best parts of the day! The house is well stocked. The bedrooms being on a separate floor from the living area is very nice as it allows those wiped out from the sun to go to bed without the noise of those staying up. The elevator was a tremendous help! Was so happy to get there and so sad to leave. Hope to be back soon. Thanks Teresa’s Beach Homes!!Y’all are the best!

We loved everything about this house! The location is great also having the pool was a bonus since the water was rough a few days. The only thing I would change about this house is at least in one bathroom add a pull down shower head to help people with small children. It was definitely a pain to get my three year old washed off everyday but it wouldn’t stop me from staying here. Just a heads up for people with small kids that there is no bath. I just didn’t pay attention to that when I booked. Also this area we basically had the beach to ourselves which was very nice. I can’t wait to hopefully stay here again next year!

Steps to the beach – It is a “Great Escape”!

First of all, this is the perfect cottage on the beach – big enough for two couples to have plenty of space. Each bedroom has its own bath. The kitchen is clean and well stocked. The screened-in porches are the icing on the cake. The parking space is good for 2 large vehicles. We have been coming to the Cape for about 20 years, and this is one of the best places that we have stayed in. We cook a lot, so when we found the oven was not heating properly, we put in a call to Terri, and she immediately responded. By the next day we had biscuits for breakfast! From the initial contact, we got the overwhelming feeling that we would be taken care of. We were a little concerned about the aftermath of Hurricane Michael after we heard about and saw some of the devastation – and while there are several places still patching up, for the most part all of the debris has been picked up. The beach area is fine. They were working on the roads, but it looked like all of that will be done soon. We shopped at Piggly Wiggly in town, but honestly could find most everything we needed at the Trading Post very close to the Great Escape. We love to go into Port St. Joe for shopping and good seafood and Mexican food and to Apalachicola for some shopping and good food at The Grill and The Owl. We will be back to the Great Escape.

We had a pleasant week in Sandy Footprints last month, lousy weather and all It’s a clean nicely decorated home on North Cape. The master suite was a bit cramped for our tastes, but we”l be back again for our annual May trip since the house next door we normally rent, Bella Vista, is undergoing renovations. I have recommended this house to friends.

Great Beach House

We have stayed many of different houses throughout the years and this one has been the best one ever. This is our annual beach trip every year and we bring our dog with us since she loves the beach. It was a spectacular stay. The views were amazing. House was more than you could ever ask for in renting.
We will definitely be back.
Thanks Teresa’s Beach Homes for the best vacation ever in our books!

Wonderful

This home was in great condition. All appliances worked and the kitchen was well stocked. When I booked this house, I thought the view would be blocked with homes. I was surprised to find that we had unobstructed views of 50% of the beach and water. We were able to see the dolphins playing. I also appreciate the transparency in fees – what you advertise is what we pay. I will definitely be a repeat renter.

Much needed rest…

Great Escape was absolutely lovely. Cozy, clean and spectacular views. This was our first year coming to the Cape during Thanksgiving (we have been coming in the summer for over 30 years) and I think I actually prefer it in November! Cool mornings and warm afternoons. We love that we can bring our dogs, because they are family too! Be sure to bring dog beds if you have a fur baby with you so they will have a comfy spot. Teresa’s Beach Homes is a wonderful company to do business with. They are warm, friendly and prompt to respond to any questions you may have. I highly recommend them.

Beautiful and relaxing

Stayed at Tranquil Seclusion and loved every minute!
The home is gorgeous, clean and spacious.
The private pool and screened in porches are amazing. The kitchen is also fabulous and fully stocked with needed items to cook.
The views are amazing as well. We throughly enjoyed every minute of our time there.
Five stars for sure!!

Awesome

This was our 5th visit to the Cape and Aloha House has been our best experience. Great location – the beach could not have been close enough. Loved the screened in porch to watch the beautiful sunsets. Great amenities and more than enough beach chairs and umbrellas available. Thank you for making our vacation complete. Will hopefully return in 2021.

Pure Bliss

This is our third stay with Teresa’s Beach Homes, second time in Avalon. Avalon is a beautiful 4 story home with a private pool and gorgeous views of the ocean. It had everything we needed and then some. Our two pups enjoyed the beach and the elevator was very helpful since one of our babies has arthritis really bad and stairs are difficult for her. Teresas Beach Homes care about their homes and the Cape and everything was immaculate. I wish we could come and stay in one of their homes every year. Our week was very relaxing and it was pure bliss to walk our dogs on the beach every evening.

Perfect score. Zero complaints.

Perfect score. Zero complaints. House was immaculate. Renting, communications, and directions were simple and straightforward. Absolutely loved the huge kitchen/dining room/living room being wide open and walking out onto 3rd story ocean front porch. The 2 master bedrooms and bathrooms were beautiful. Heated private pool was so nice for the kids and one final note, if you go in the spring make sure you fish off the beach. Can’t wait to return! God Bless America!!!

Great House

Shore Thing is a great house. Designed very well. Stocked with first rate kitchen amenities. We have used Teresa Beach Rentals several times and they are always great to work with. We will use them again.

It Really is a Great Escape!

This is our 2nd stay in this home, and we have already booked for summer 2022. We come with our grown daughter and our large breed dogs. The Wi-Fi is sound which is important since our daughter must be in touch with work and is also working on her graduate degree while we vacation. The porch is amazing as she can sit there to do her work with a fantastic view of the ocean. Having the screened area and the deck gives us a fantastic place to let dogs dry and cool off after they romp on the beach. While humans are taking a break from the sand, you can still enjoy the sounds and sights of the ocean. It you like to run, head up the road to the path and take a right. If you run 3-4 miles round trip, half of your view is the bay. Just beautiful early in the morning. There kitchen has everything you need to cook at home, and the large table is great for family meals or for working on a puzzle after dinner. There are plenty of linens and the house has been clean both times we’ve rented – once during the height of COVID-19 Pandemic. Oh, if you have forgotten something, you can just walk to the Tradin’ Post. If you are looking for a small house on the beach that is also affordable, this is the house! Did I mention the only carpet is a living room and a kitchen rug? This makes it so much easier for you to bring your furry family members, too!

Absolutely the Best

This was by far one of the nicest homes we’ve enjoyed on the cape. The porches are wonderful, and Teresa and her family provide great service. We went ahead and booked it again for next summer within a month of leaving!

Incredible beach house.

We’re not millionaires, but we felt like we were for two weeks in 2019. This home is a spectacular piece of architecture that brings the Gulf up close and personal. Attractive and quiet gated enclave, boardwalk to the long stretches of uncrowded beach, and access to a lengthy dock on the sound side of the Cape. Great food and drink a short ways away. The property managers were very helpful. I hope to stay at Horizon again.

A Shore Thing

My family and I had three generations staying in this fabulous house. Well equipped, comfortable beds, the kitchen was a delight. We’ve stayed with Teresa’s Beach Homes for many years. They’ve all been clean, comfortable, and well equipped. However, It’s A Shore Thing just may be my favorite.

My husband and I spent January and February at Avalon. The house was perfect for us and is so close to the beach. Everyone we dealt with was helpful and professional. We can’t wait to return in 2022.

Private Oasis

My week at Horizon in 2020 marked my third time at the property. The openness and amenities encourages me to return for another visit. I have alternated visits over the last five years. The location is convenient to both ends of the Cape. The kitchen is large and has all of the utensils a person could need for the stay at the beach. The beautiful view of the beach provides inspiring sunsets. The top floor observation room is spacious and quiet. The convenience of the elevator helps with luggage and the unloading of supplies. When we had a slight electrical challenge, the maintenance worker came at night in the rain to help solve the problem. Definitely worth a stay at any time.

Wonderful Experience

We’ve stayed at Tranquil Seclusion for three consecutive years. The home is perfect and ideal for our family in so many ways. Terri and Teresa are exceptional to work with, and we’re thankful to be able to work with Teresa’s Beach Homes every year!

Absolutely great experience. Teresa and Teri are by far the best summer rental agents around. The pool was terrific for the kids. The house is close to the beach so it’s possible to run back and forth to the house. We will be back!

Great Thanksgiving

Phenomenal vacation house right on the water. Has one of the best furnished kitchens of any rental I’ve been in over the past 20 years. Incredible views from the balconies and the weather this year was incredibly good. The beds were comfortable. Grandkids loved the close proximity to the beach. The cooks appreciated being able to see the beach when standing at the sink. Our only complaint is it’s time to replace the couches in the living room. They were not comfortable and the inability to have throw pillows currently only accentuated it. Also the fans in the living room didn’t have lights so we needed to drag a floor lamp over to the small table we used for games due to the lack of lighting in that quadrant of the living room. But those two issues were totally overshadowed by the pluses this house has to offer.

Beach House Perfection

Found CSB in 2020! Avalon is an awesome property! Great floor plan! Clean! Elevator! Pet friendly! Easy beach walk! Nice waterfall pool! The best views of the beach and the bay! Plenty of deck space to enjoy the ocean breeze! We loved Avalon! And we love working with Teresa and Terri! They’re the best! Thanks Teresa’s Beach Homes!

Amazing experience and the best customer service!!

My family loved our stay at the Grey Whale! We arrived just in time for Hurricane Sally but a little bad weather couldn’t ruin our vacation. The house was great and had everything we needed. I really appreciated all the cookware and nice serving platters. The location really couldn’t be beat. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time and it was so convenient to be right on the beach.The Piggly Wiggly and Dollar General both had online ordering and curbside pickup which was so convenient and safe! If you’re staying during the Covid pandemic, I would recommend bringing extra pillows. All of the decorative and throw pillows were taken out. We didn’t think to bring extras so had to bunch up some sweatshirts cause we’re side sleepers! Lastly, the customer service at Teresa’s Beach Homes really can’t be beat. We’ve stayed at beach homes all over OBX and Myrtle Beach and the service from Teresa and her team is hands down the best! We can’t wait to return!!

Spring Break Vacation

This was a very beautiful home right on the gulf. No neighbors to the west and pretty private beach front. This house would be perfect for 2 couples and some kids, or even 3 couples. We went fishing right in front of the house from the shore and caught fish. Port St. Joe is only a few miles away and Mexico Beach is right there. You can see the Cape right across the bay. We also chartered a fishing boat on the bay and caught a lot of fish. There is a grill at the house and we grilled them up. The pool is nice and was heated. If you are looking for a quiet layed back vacation right on the beach this is the house for you. It’s quite spacious and would easily accommodate 8 people. The remodel is excellent, and the elevator works. We hope to go back next year.

It was a week of many opportunities

The views from the decks were outstanding. The upper floor was great with its 3 bedrooms – one of which was a bunk room … perfect for many small ones or many big ones as well … the kitchen was large and well equipped … Being at the end of the cape the silence at night was refreshing. Having your own pool made the whole experience even more special.

Great Place to Stay!

We loved staying at It’s A Shore Thing! The house is beautiful and has an unobstructed view to the beach/ocean. The proximity to the beach is so close, it is literally a one minute walk. This house has everything you need and the pool makes it perfect! Teresa’s Beach Homes was great to work with. We had an A/C issue the first day and Terri was over at the house herself within 20 minutes of our call and got the issue resolved so quickly. I highly recommend this home and would stay there again in heart beat!
