Windmark Beach has grown at an exponential rate over the past 10 years. With plans to develop custom homes throughout the stretch along HWY 98 in Port St. Joe, Florida, and DR Horton building a large number of tract homes from their popular models in other areas of Florida, Windmark has become very popular with not only the locals but also with 30a regulars. There are over 3.5 miles of beach that fall into the category known as “Windmark Beach” which is tucked safely inside the Saint Joseph Bay.
Windmark Beach is the ideal place for families. Even though there isn’t an arcade or a go-cart track, when you stay at Windmark you are only 42 miles from Panama City Beach, Florida (roughly 1 hour and 10 mins) which has all of the family activities. This allows you to still get out of the busyness of PCB and plan a few days on quiet, calm beaches where you can rest knowing that the riptide will not be a major concern and neither is fighting over a spot on the water! There is currently a large, resort-style pool that is heated in the winter and is perfect for pool days, and another pool is being put in at North Windmark that is near the beach; It should be ready by November 2023!
Rent a golf cart or other beach gear from Top Notch Beach Rentals to explore more of the area even though, most of the homes you can rent with Renting the Coast come with beach gear, a golf cart, and beach towels so you don’t have to worry about packing everything you own or spending additional money on gear.
Just inside the Windmark Village, you have food options. Bruno’s Pizza is known as the best pizza in Port St. Joe, The Mill Mercantile and Social has a Sweet Shop next to it, and most weekends there is live music…plus games for you to enjoy!
Investors are coming to Windmark for many reasons. Here are a few:
- You can purchase a 4-bedroom home within walking distance of the beach for under $480,000.
- The GRI on these homes is anywhere from $35,000 to north of $60,000
- Tyndall Airforce Base receiving a substantial grant since the Hurricane of 2018 will bring more attention to the area along with the residents needed to take the economy to the next level!
- Property Management Companies (Like Renting the Coast) are seeing high occupancy in the first year and this should only increase with time and returning visitors. (65% occupancy in Kennedy Models at North Windmark).
