"Great Location and Amenities! #236715"

by Review from Hosted Guest Review Form #236715


Our family had the most wonderful time here. The house is amazing and so spacious. It is decorated beautifully and is in the most convenient location.
The house is just steps from the beach and just a few minute drive to downtown where there are lots of great restaurants. The golf cart was a great added touch and provided lots of fun.
I would highly recommend this house for a family vacation anytime of year.

"Quiet, Peaceful Place to Stay"

by Connie S.


Beautiful, well appointed, tastefully decorated home. Complete with anything you could possibly need during your stay. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of space for spending time together with family or friends. A quick walk to a nearly secluded beach. We even saw dolphins one morning! If you want a quiet, peaceful place to stay, look no further than Sunshine Shel-A. Five stars!

"Truly Amazing"

by Shelly W.


We stayed at Sunshine Shel-A for a few weeks this Spring. What a special place! The home is brand new and fully stocked with everything you could need. The mattresses were very comfortable, and the coastal decor is fresh and inviting. They were even bikes in the garage for us to use--which is great, because Windmark Beach has miles of paved bike trails throughout, and the scenery and landscaping are not to be missed. The house is a quick 400 yards from beach, and all I can say is `WOW!` We had the beach to ourselves most of the time (which is unheard of anywhere else), and it is stunning. We went shelling along the beach every morning, and even saw dolphins playing just off the shortline. Bike or walk down the quaint little main street, just 2 blocks from house, and grab a cocktail at the Mill before catching the sunset on Florida`s truly amazing Forgotten Coast. Cute shopping in Port St Joe, and great food. We LOVED our meals from Provisions (2 for 1 Sangrias on Saturday), Quatros Tacos (Shrimp ala Diablos is soooo good), and KrazyFish Grill (Snapper A-Ya-Ya is amazing). And, you`re just a quick drive from the shops and restaurants in Apalachicola--so stop by the Seafood Grill for the best-fried oysters on the planet. It was a fantastic trip, and we`re already booking our next stay at Sunshine Shel-A. Can`t wait to go back!
