Caroline’s Cottage, located in beautiful St. Joe Beach, will take you on a journey back in time when family was most important and spending the day on the beach was what you looked forward to all year long. All the nostalgia, but with an added bonus of modern luxury. This 3-bedroom single family beach home is the total package from location, views and design to interior and exterior amenities. The layout is ideal for almost any group, families with children, adult couple trips, a men’s fishing retreat or a girls’ getaway.

A top feature is location. Caroline’s Cottage sits on a large corner lot directly across the street from St. Joe Beach. This strip of the Florida Panhandle is covered in white sandy beaches and the Gulf of Mexico is buffered by the peninsula creating a calm shoreline perfectly safe for children and quite enjoyable for adults wanting to shore fish or just float in the water with a drink. With a dedicated beach access directly across from the house, there is no direct obstruction allowing breathtaking gulf views from almost everywhere inside and out of the house.

Before you even make it indoors, you’ll know you’ve arrived at your new favorite vacation home. You will find a well-manicured lawn in the front and a large enough backyard for a friendly football game. There’s a chance you’ll never leave the expansive front and side decks with dining and lots of space for sunbathing. Great spot for a low country boil. It’s impossible to describe the views from these decks, especially sunsets without seeing them for yourselves. They’re almost magical. When the sun goes down, take a seat on the comfortable sofa seating around the fire pit. And if the open decks aren’t enough there is an additional screened area for your enjoyment as well.
Inside is where you’ll find that mix of nostalgia and luxury. Upon entering you’ll take a few steps down into a bonus living area with a large flat screen TV, laundry closet, a custom sleeping quarters, full bath and a bedroom with 2 double beds and a TV. Unique to our coastal area, this space is similar to a basement turned kids’ or man cave….think College Football Game Day!

The owners have added small touches of local history throughout. You’ll find photos of the once famous Wonder Bar, historical documents & maps and even a flag flown in the PSJ Centennial Building over 80 years ago when the Florida Constitution was signed.

The upstairs living space is wide open with amazing views in every direction. You feel a constant pull to the outdoors with windows from one side of the house to the other. There are sitting spaces throughout to get comfortable in, and even a custom-made dining booth. With two separate dining spaces, multiple sitting areas, a living room with a large TV, a kitchen and a wet bar you’ll be set for entertainment.

The description for Caroline’s Cottage could go on and on. Come see for yourself and create your own memories and stories. It’s a special home ready to be shared with your family any time of the year.

Wonderful stay! Gorgeous views from the large front porch was the beginning and end to our days! Hung out on back deck grilling and roasting marshmallows for s’mores in the fire pit. Beach access directly across the street with just steps to the water. This stay has everything you need and more. Would definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Caroline's Cottage. It was completely comfortable for our family of 8. Loved the easy walk directly over to the beach... the kitchen was perfect for cooking, and the beach gear drop off/pickup was great! We'd certainly stay here again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Christine's Cottage. It was completely comfortable for our family of 8. Loved the easy walk directly over to the beach... the kitchen was perfect for cooking, and we loved dining outside. Oh - the beach gear drop off/pickup was great, too! We'd certainly stay here again.

Plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed our stay. The deck was so nice and shaded in the afternoons. The ice maker ended up being a nice bonus. We didn’t realize how much we’d use it!

This home was perfect for our girls trip. It has high end appliances, with updated kitchen and bath, very comfortable seating, and plenty of room to spread out. We loved it!

Beach in sight!
Want a place to stay with the Beach right at your front door? This place is a few steps from the beach. The Big windows facing the beach let you know your dream vacation has come true. This place has few stairs and is beautifully laid out. We loved it and we will come again. Perfectly laid out design was great for everyone we brought. Housekeeping was great. Maintenance too.

This property was perfect for our girl's weekend. It was so nice and it was also amazing to be right across from the beach. The view was great. I do wish there was a box fan or some other fan available for use in the downstairs bedroom as it stayed very warm at night. Would definitely rent this house again.

Lovely view and remodel. Time to recover fabrics and invest in linens and a large frying pan.

Great location. Great for families.
My family had a wonderful stay at Caroline's Cottage. The house was very clean, well appointed, and right across the street from the beach! The location could not have been more perfect. The highlight of our stay was watching the sunset from the front porch each night. We will definitely stay here again!

Caroline’s cottage was the perfect getaway for 3 adults and 4 kids. We had so much space and the ocean views were amazing. Just a quick crossing of the street and we enjoyed the beach mostly to ourselves. We can not wait to come back!

The property was great. Improvements I would recommend is the water pressure is very low to the upstairs bathroom shower.

Great Beach House
Our group (two adults, two kids) had a great time staying here. The owners have done an impressive job renovating this beach cottage but keeping some of the original elements. The dining table is very cool, and we loved the old photos, etc. It was convenient to everything we wanted to do, and we had the beach to ourselves - not crowded at all. Can't wait to come back!

The traffic road noise will bother late sleepers. There were no side tables for the chairs in the living room. The windows in the living room should have shades for privacy and for the sun late in the day. There should be hangers for clothes in the closets. There should be a dresser with drawers or shelves for clothes in the lower bed room. It would be helpful if there was a "How To..." document regarding operation of the door lock, downstairs heating/cooling unit, TV, other appliances, etc. The oven works great for toast, but a toaster would have been better.

Winter get-away
House was roomy. We stayed with another couple and it was very nice to be able to sit either on the out door deck or inside and watch the beach!
