By the Sea
- 3 bedrooms and 2.0 bathrooms in Port St. Joe, FL

Availability and Booking

Description ↑↓

It is rare to find a home for a small group BY THE SEA, but this Gulf-front home provides that and so much more. Once inside, the house is all on one level so children are not sleeping on a different floor from parents. You will not miss out on the conveniences offered in larger homes. The updated kitchen has custom cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless appliances and the living room provides the views you want from a Florida vacation. A sun deck and an area shaded by a pergola provide outdoor eating areas or a place to get that impressive tan you want to take back home.

A private boardwalk provides easy access to the beach and an open outdoor shower makes a great place to rinse off the saltwater and sand. Then get a front row seat in your beachfront hot tub and watch the sun plunge into the Gulf while displaying breathtaking colors and hues.

Are you looking for adventure during your stay at By the Sea? Your reservation includes $250 worth of adventure gear rental. Whether your adventure is sitting under an umbrella on the white-sandy beaches, biking, or fishing from a kayak in the Bay, this $250 credit towards your vacation gear rental will ensure you have the adventure you seek. You will be able to shop for bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or even beach carts. No need to find the rental company, your gear will be delivered to your beach house and will be waiting for your arrival.

Wonderfully clean and open floor plan

By: Trip Date: 05/18/2019

We had a wonderful time in this beach house. Boardwalk was great. Hot tub was a great plus. House was clean and well stocked kitchen. The only negative is that all the beds could use some new mattresses.

Response: Thank you for taking the time to review By the Sea. After Hurricane Michael in October of last year, all new mattresses were put into the house. So I guess the saying is true, “different strokes for different folks.”


By The Sea Beach House was Amazing!

By: Trip Date: 09/22/2018

By The Sea was the perfect house for our family and grand puppies. The open layout concept with all the windows facing the ocean, the two king bedrooms which is hard to find, and the TV’s with Direct TV service were amazing. The grand puppies loved being on the beach all day long with us and it was so refreshing that beach was not crowded. We loved seeing all of the wildlife and natural habitat, however the biggest surprise was that a bear kept visiting our locked trash cans each night. We only had to contact Cape & Coast one time to add more locks to the trash cans and they responded immediately. The Indian Pass restaurant which was 3 minutes away was so good that we ate there two times. Peppers in Port St. Joe was also very good. We hope to rent this same beach house next year. Thank you again.


A Wonderful week at By The Sea

By: Trip Date: 09/08/2018

By The Sea is now one of our favorite beach houses! We arrived to find a spotlessly clean home. Linens and guest bags filled with soaps and lotions and the view of the beach and ocean just as the pictures had promised. We were delighted with the front porch and spent hours eating, sunning, sleeping in the shady section and water gazing!! Pure beach bliss!! Our favorite baked oyster were right around the bend at the Indian Pass Oyster and Raw Bar! We went to the Brick Wall and watched a game my husband wanted to see but was not available on the regular channel. We can highly recommend the shrimp tacos and Philly Cheese Steak subs! Enjoyed walking around Historic Port St Joe and checking out the shops-so much to choose from. Made a short trip to Mexico Beach and had waffles at Sharon’s Cafe. YUM! Another trip was to Apalachicola -a neat area to explore. Get the Duck Confit Fries at the Owl Cafe Tap Room!! You won’t be sorry! Crab dip is great, too! We had a wonderful week and hope to do it again. The management quickly took care of a couple minor requests and were very easy to communicate with. 55We highly recommend By The Sea for a relaxed get-away that lives up to its promises.


By the Sea – A perfect home for New Years!

By: Trip Date: 12/30/2017

Quiet. Restful. Home is updated, has a view to the water/sands. Easy access via private boardwalk to beach.


Relaxing Beachfront Get-Away

By: Trip Date: 12/16/2017

We had a wonderful stay at this house. It looks exactly like it does in the photos. The house was very clean, inviting (upon our arrival there was a nice basket of toiletries on top of each of the beds in the rooms) and it had a great beachfront location on a pet-friendly beach. The property manager was very responsive and immediately addressed some minor issues (internet connectivity and fixing the heater in the jacuzzi). I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing beach get away.


Fall Getawy

By: Trip Date: 10/28/2017

Great time of the year to spend on the beach and in the hot tub at sunset and sunrise. The house was very comfortable with everything we needed to dine in. Very quiet and peace full. The house was very clean with the location very convenient. Feature day trip was attending the Seafood Festival in Apalachicola, would definitely come back for that again.


Great low-key beach getaway!

By: Trip Date: 09/23/2017

Wonderful beach getaway! The house was very clean, well appointed, not overdone. Welcoming and relaxing. The beach is beautiful and not crowded (at least in late September when we were there). Great location convenient to Port St. Joe and Appalachicola. We had a great stay and would definitely go back!


Great Experience Beautiful views

By: Trip Date: 10/14/2017

This was by far the most wonderful experience at the beach. This was our first time in Port St Joe. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This being a pet friendly beach and home was great. Home was beautiful and had everything needed for a great vacation. Felt like home away from home.


Great place to spend a vacation.

By: Trip Date: 09/30/2017

Great location and enjoyed how close it was to the beach. The house was very clean. It would be helpful if the kitchen was better equipped with more silverware and cooking pots. Some of the chairs on the deck needs to be replaced.

 

Thank you for your review of By the Sea. And thank you for letting us know about the issues you found. We have a first-rate maintenance department and they will be on it. The Cape & Coast Management Team


August 2017

By: Trip Date: 08/26/2017

We had a great experience at By the Sea. Everything was just as described on the website. We were the only ones on the beach, which we love. The only negative, which had nothing to do with the house, was the yellow flies on the beach. Luckily, we only dealt with them one day. We will definitely stay here again.


Amazing Stay right on the Beach!

By: Trip Date: 08/06/2017

By the Sea is exactly as the name says.. You are right on the beach! My wife and baby boy booked this place just a few days prior to arriving! It was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The inside was very nice, updated everything! Bed was SUPER comfty, the deck is amazing and plenty of shade from the pergula! We will be back!!!


Awesome Vacation!

By: Trip Date: 06/10/2017

Perfect! House is located on beach, just a few steps to the sand and Gulf. House has open floor plan, clean and very comfortable. Hot tub included which is right off the boardwalk to beach. Perfect for getting away from the crowds and relaxing.


Getaway from the Cold Up North!

By: Trip Date: 03/24/2018

The rental was in nice shape. Easy access to the beach directly off the house’s boardwalk. We did not experience any problems during our stay. Description was exactly what we thought it would be. Biggest issue is that the deck furniture is pretty rusted. Be careful of corrosion.


By the Sea

By: Trip Date: 02/03/2018

We love spending January and February in By the Sea with our two large dogs. This was our third year there and we have reserved it for next year. At 3 bedrooms/2 baths, it is one of the smallest houses along our stretch of the beach but is perfect for us. It was remodeled 4 or 5 years ago but the salt air is already taking its toll. Management is great to work with and we just hope to find new deck furniture next year. You’ll find the friendliest people and dogs along the beaches of Gulf County. You can’t go wrong visiting the Cape San Blas area.

April Stay at By the Sea at Indian Pass

By: Trip Date: 04/21/2018

We had a wonderful April stay at By the Sea. The house is exactly as described on the website, but even closer to the water than we expected. The house was clean and well equipped for cooking which we did occasionally. The raw bar is less than a mile away, so we did less cooking than we planned! The evenings in April were pleasantly cool, so we took full advantage of the hot tub on the deck. It was clean, well maintained, and accommodated four adults easily. The pergola on the porch provided ample shade in the morning to enjoy coffee overlooking the beach. The beach was wide and flat, perfect for long walks. The management company was great and responded to our one request immediately and cheerfully. We enjoyed our stay so much that we agreed to book the same week next year!
