Description Description
With two large decks overlooking the Gulf, your own private pool, and the sugar sand beach just feet away, Donsol Beach House is the perfect vacation spot in the Villa del Sol subdivision. This 3,300 square foot 5 bedroom 5 bath vacation home with an elevated pool and elevator is sure to please.

Donsol truly captures the essence of all things coastal. You will be greeted with a large, open concept living and kitchen space boasting spectacular Gulf views. Take a step through the back doors facing the ocean to find yourself in the peaceful, breezy surroundings with an amazing, unhindered view of the Gulf and your own private elevated swimming pool. Back inside, the dining and kitchen area has beautiful hardwood floors, modern amenities, and a kitchen featuring a large island, appliances, and quartz countertops. The comfortable, roomy living space is the ultimate gathering spot for entertaining and making memories with friends and family.

The first floor has a bay view master suite with a king bed and attached private bathroom along with a bay view master bedroom with king bed. On the second floor, there are two Oceanfront master suite bedrooms with king beds and attached bathrooms, and a charming bunk room with 3 bunks and a full bathroom. The most inviting aspect of the second floor is that two of the bedrooms have access to its large deck overlooking the Gulf, while the bunk room has views of the bay.

Walk down your own boardwalk from your coastal home and you’ll find yourself on the miles and miles of sugar-white sand and pristine blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you enjoy combing the beach for shells, snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing, surfing waves, fishing, or taking a leisurely stroll or horseback rides along the shoreline, you’ll spend hours of fun while soaking up the sun. Venture out to enjoy shopping, galleries, entertainment, and restaurants in the quaint downtown of Port St. Joe located only 15 minutes away. Visit the historic lighthouse, visit the shops, have lunch or dinner, or take the ferry over to St. Vincent Island for the day. For the fishing enthusiast, launch your boat at the nearby Indian Pass boat ramp and take in some first-class fishing, or book your family on a fishing charter for a day trip out on the water to catch your dinner for the night. When you want to experience the beauty of St. Joseph Bay, visit nearby Salinas Park with a playground, picnic table, fire pit, and boardwalk over the serene water. You can even get in some exercise by walking, running, or biking on the 19-mile paved trail. About 25 miles away is the quaint, historical, fishing community of Apalachicola. Apalachicola is perfect for a day trip to do a little shopping, stroll along the Apalachicola River, or grab some of the best seafood around!

We had a wonderful stay with our kids and two small grandkids. The home was clean, beautiful and had many amenities. Everything we needed for the beach was provided. We did bring a large tent, though. A few days were very windy but we were still able to enjoy the beach.
Marissa is responsive and wonderful to work with. We would definitely go back back!

We recently stayed at a lovely home in Cape San Blas, Florida, and it was truly a wonderful experience. The house featured a fantastic pool on the deck, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful weather. Being right on the beach, we had easy access to the stunning shoreline, which made our stay even more enjoyable.
The kitchen was amazing and exceptionally well-stocked, providing everything we needed to prepare meals with ease. Additionally, there was plenty of parking, which was convenient for our group.
Overall, this charming home offered a perfect blend of comfort and convenience, making our stay in Cape San Blas unforgettable. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful stay at Donsol vacation house. A great house for families. The house is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and squeaky clean. We enjoyed morning walks on the beach, playing pickle ball at the neighborhood court, cooking meals in the spacious and well stocked kitchen and hanging out on the beach. We saw dolphins swimming out in the ocean and on the beach saw crabs, jellyfish, and starfish. There’s a general store a few miles down the road, a grocery store in town, yummy restaurants, and a community pool that we used on days when it was too windy on the beach. I feel like there is so much more we could have done during our stay like visiting the local state parks, fishing, and more, yet we were so happy and had plenty to do without leaving the neighborhood! We would definitely love to come back!

The place was better than what the pictures show! It was extremely clean and the space was amazing! Paying extra for the pool to be heated was well worth it as it was a bit chilly. Beach and everything about the place was beautiful.

I can’t put into words how much we enjoyed our stay. It was exceptional, well equipped with everything we needed and more. Truly exceeded our expectations. Clean, comfortable and spacious. Enough space to allow family entertainment and still be able to escape for some tranquility and disconnect. Only thing I’ve heard from the kids since we checked out is, when are we coming back! Thanks for everything Marissa- you’re a gem!

I love the cape and have been visiting for many years. I prefer the undeveloped beach and more natural feel as my happy place is on the beach fishing. Normally this means slumming it in a fish cape type place. Newer development has drastically improved the quality of rentals in the area. Marissas place was brand new and felt very special. it has its own private boardwalk and outdoor shower. nice aluminum chairs and beach towel were provided. The elevator made loading unloading a breeze. The living situation is obviously first class. 10/10would stay again.

We enjoyed our stay. The host Marissa was very responsive and helpful. ??
the house was as described with a nice chefs kitchen with lots of cooking utensils and enough dishes and cutlery for a large family.
For an additional small fee we had the pool heated which was fabulous for a February vacation.
The location is close to the trading post and the state park so we did not have a need to go into town once we were on the cape
A definite re- visit to this property!

As described in past reviews, this stay surpassed our expectations. The layout is perfect, furnished perfect for the beach and any age you are entertaining (kids can get around easily, older adults would appreciate the small touches). It was colder while we were there, it is worth every cent to heat the pool. it was 50 and we were all swimming while wearing beanies and jackets on the beach. All the houses were rented on the beach, everyone was so nice and yet it still felt like no one was around. There is construction in the neighborhood, but you would only know it driving in. 15mins. to town and fun BBQ (Smokehouse) just a half mile away. Our first time in Port St. Joe (we've stayed almost every other town along 30A), we will be back!

this home is gorgeous! we were all scrambling on our last day to figure out how we could stay longer, and we totally would have had it not been booked already ?
there are beautiful views every direction you look, and the boardwalk is so nice vs having to walk that far in sand. the ice machine on the first floor was a godsend. the elevator was AMAZING. it made checking in/out a breeze.
the only "con", which really wasn't a big deal at all... was the fact there was only 1 hand towel for the kitchen. I'd suggest bringing an extra so you have another while you wash theirs!
if you're thinking about booking this property....just do yourself a favor and pull the trigger!

Our family of 11 really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautifully decorated as well as being fully equipped, and extremely clean and comfortable. The pool was perfect size for our 5-6 year old early swimmers. Safety features were greatly appreciated. The beach was easily accessible in a very quiet area. Local towns were cute and nice to not be overcrowded with tourists. Really nice area for relaxing. We would definitely recommend Marissa’s house for a great home away from home experience. 5 stars for sure!!!
