Description Description
With two large decks overlooking the Gulf, your own private pool, and the sugar sand beach just feet away, Kaikoura 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 was built in 2023 in a lovely private gated subdivision.

Kaikoura 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 1 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!

Our family just returned from a few days at this beautiful home, and we had an amazing time. The property is well-equipped with everything you need, and was very clean and comfortable. The layout is perfect for allowing families to have time together for meals and games. We arrived during a time where the ocean was unfortunately quite rough and unsafe, so the kids weren't able to get in during our trip. But the private pool was amazing. They absolutely loved still getting to have plenty of water time and beach walks, despite the disappointment of missing out on the ocean itself. Marissa is very responsive and easy to work with, and she does a great job of making sure you have an easy and relaxing stay. We purposefully looked for an area of Florida that had a smaller and more relaxing vibe, and Port St Joe offered that feeling. Everyone in our group agreed that this was an amazing trip, and we would love to come back again in the future if possible!

Awesome beach house. Each bedroom had access to own bathroom. Porches were a great place to hang out morning, afternoon, or evening. Wonderful setup with pool on back porch and overlooking beach. Kitchen was well equipped and there were beach chairs, pool towels, and an ice maker. Would definitely stay here again!

Family trip to this area to celebrate my 50th Birthday with my husband, 3 children and their spouses along with my 4 wonderful grandchildren could not have been better. This house was amazing, so much space, clean, and every amenity we needed. The grands loved the bunk room! Beds were very comfortable . Kitchen view out the back door of pool and beach was one of my favorite spots! Very peaceful area. We have stayed in many beach houses in Florida as we usually take 1-2 beach trips a year and this by far was the nicest home we have stayed in. Marissa was an amazing host. Responded immediately when we had an issue with elevator and had it unlocked very quickly. Request to heat pool was done just as quick. This is an area and home we will definitely plan to stay again. We actually already looked up for a quick return for July 4th but all the homes on beach in this specific area were booked already. Would recommend this home to anyone!

Marissa’s beach house in Port St. Joe is a slice of paradise nestled along the Florida coast. From the moment you step foot inside, you're greeted by breathtaking views of the azure ocean. The interior design is chic yet cozy, with every detail meticulously curated to evoke a sense of coastal elegance. Whether you're lounging on the spacious deck, taking a dip in the sparkling pool, or simply relaxing in the airy living room, every corner of this beach house exudes tranquility and luxury. With its prime location and impeccable amenities, Marissa’s beach house is the ultimate getaway for those seeking sun, sand, and serenity.

We had a large group and booked two houses (Mazzaro and Kaikoura) next door to each other. It was WONDERFUL! Beautiful homes, lots of space, easy access to the beach, plenty of parking ... just fabulous in general! Marissa was very communicative and helpful. Highly recommended!
One thing to note is that there is a long boardwalk that crosses over a small dune that leads to the beach. You can see the water from the back decks of the houses, but you can't actually see the beach. That was fine for our group but it is something to be aware of if a view of the actual beach is important to you.

This home really impressed me and honestly felt like a steal for the price we paid. It was perfect for our family vacation in Cape San Blas. The house is pristine, tastefully decorated and has all the modern amenities. Nothing was overlooked in the design and finishes. The surrounding ocean views are beautiful. Walkable to a bbq restaurant + nature preserve w/ a boardwalk. The support team was super helpful and sweet (especially Melissa). We hope to be back one day!

This was an absolutely amazing house! Our entire stay was an absolute dream. Port Saint Joe is separated from the bustle of normal spring break beach crowds, granting unmatched peace and serenity & making it feel like we'd travelled much further away then we actually did. This was a beautifully curated home, with considerate accessibility, and stunning ocean views and access. Our family was planning our next stay well before we left. Book this! You won't regret it!
