Location on island
Location on island and the view were great. Loved the swing on porch and the hot tub. We thought it was a great time for all of us.

Would stay again
We enjoyed our stay. Location directly on the beach. The pictures on the VRBO site are what you see in person. The only thing I would have liked better was to have at least a double or queen bed in the bedroom that had two twin beds. It would have better served our family.

Family Time
The “Sweet Escape” was perfect for our family vacation. The house was immaculate and the views breathtaking. We had the option of walking out on the beautiful St Joe Beach or enjoying the ocean view from the relaxing pool. The “Sweet Escape” did not disappoint.

We had the option of walking out on the beautiful St Joe beach or enjoying the ocean view from the relaxing pool. The "Sweet Escape" did not disappoint. (The only drawbacks are the construction on the lot next door which could get noisy at times and the three flights of stairs of 19 steps each.)

Fabulous Property
This was an incredible property and we loved our first visit to Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach! The management team was responsive and helpful answering questions. The pool was just completed and an added bonus to our visit! We used it every day. The property was recently updated and it is simply gorgeous. I would highly recommend Sweet Escape as it's name lived up to its reputation.

A Wonderful Experience
Easy close beach access. Pool was great for the kids when they got tired of the ocean. Kitchen was very well equipped with cooking gear, pots, pans, blender, crockpot, coffeemakers, etc. Wonderful views from all the porches. Unit was very clean. The area is much less commercialized than Panama City, Destin, etc. but that's what we prefer. A great trip for our family.

A great experience
Sweet Escape was a wonderful place. The property was very well maintained and the management was quick to respond to my emails. The St Joe/Mexico Beach area is much quieter and less commercialized than Panama City/Destin and the beach is much less crowded. As a result there are many fewer bars and restaurants in the area. We preferred it that way but it's a matter of individual choice. The sunsets were gorgeous and we got to see plenty of dolphins, one sea turtle and a sting ray. We also enjoyed the fact that the beaches were dog-friendly and we got to see many of them playing on the beach and in the surf. The amenities were as described and the kitchen was very well outfitted with cooking gear. I highly recommend this property.

Great Time at Sweet Escape
Beautiful, clean, spacious, welcoming home with gorgeous, unobstructed views of the Gulf. Relaxing sounds and sites of the Gulf were wonderful 24/7 experiences from every one of the four levels. Exiting the property was a little challenging at times because of the traffic on the street behind the house, but this did not detract from our thorough enjoyment of the property. Being right on the beach allowed for immediate access to the powdery white sand and full front-row viewing of multiple spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Great, great time!!

Beautiful View and Location
We had a great vacation at Sweet Escapes. The house is located right on the beach with beautiful views in both directions. We loved the easy beach access. And, we loved sitting on the porch and watching the sunset. The management company  provided great service and was always responsive to my questions.. I would recommend this rental.
