The ultimate gulf-view family beach retreat, Ava’s Beach House offers easy access to all the adventures of the Forgotten Coast from a 4-bedroom 2 full and 2 half bath home designed for kid-friendly travel. Sitting at the mouth of Saint Joseph's Bay, Ava's Beach House provides a unique salt water experience which includes both Bay and Gulf waters.

Nestled on densely tree-lined grounds for complete privacy, the newly constructed elevated beach home lies on the Bay Beach Bike Trail, just steps from a private beach with spectacular west-facing sunsets. All living quarters are conveniently located on the same level for ease of access for all family members.

On the ground level, you’ll find the convenience of paved covered parking for up to four cars, an outdoor shower, a half bath, BBQ grill, and a fenced-in dog run for your favorite four-legged friend.

For an easy beachside picnic or fishing expedition, you’ll also enjoy the use of two beach chairs, a sand beach mat, wagon and rolling cooler. From this home’s convenient location on St. Joseph’s Bay, a premier scallop hatchery, you can catch redfish, trout and whiting, all without losing sight of the house. Fishermen will certainly appreciate the dedicated fish cleaning station. Of course, if you do wander the length of the 2.5 mile conservation beach, the home’s distinctive Ibis weathervane and stained glass window will guide you back. The usually calm waters will provide a serene beach going experience for the entire family. The fish cleaning station is perfect for cleaning that special catch.

Upstairs, this sprawling home captures the spirit of the Forgotten Coast with nautical decor, brightly colored interiors and ocean-inspired accents. As you enter, an open-concept living area invites you to settle into vacation mode with a large-screen TV, full-length sofa and relaxing recliner chairs. Steps away, a modern kitchen offers ample room to prepare the day’s catch with plenty of cabinet space for snacks.

A 6-8 seat dining table allows for family meals with treetop views through the screened porch. Three additional seats at the breakfast breakfast bar create the ideal “kids’ table.” After dinner, take in the views from screened and open porches, both featuring colorful Adirondack chairs. A convenient half bath is located just down the hall.

Whether you’re traveling with friends or your entire family, Ava’s Beach House offers a flexible sleeping configuration with accommodations for up to 12 guests:

Primary Bedroom
California King - Casper Mattress
The spacious primary suite has a sitting area with comfy accent chair, wall-mounted TV, and antique nautical artwork. The en-suite bath features dual sinks and a step-in shower with rain shower-head.

Bedroom 2
Queen Bed - Casper Mattress
This charming room, styled in a Victorian flair, has a full dresser and wall-mounted TV.

Bedroom 3
Queen Murphy Bed
This sunny, carpeted room is ideal for guests who need extra space. Fold up the Nantucket Murphy bed to make room for your yoga mat, kids’ toys or even a Pack ‘n Play.

Bedroom 4
2 Sets of Twin/full Bunk Beds
The bunk room, styled in kid-friendly decor with Finding Nemo linens, play mats and toys, is a stage set for memories with siblings, cousins and friends.

You will also have a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. Guests outside the primary suite have a full bathroom in the hallway with a combination shower/bathtub, while a separate half-bathroom on the ground floor adds convenience. A dedicated laundry room keeps swimsuits and towels dry throughout your vacation.

*We are happy welcome up to 2 dogs for an additional non-refundable pet fee of $200.

Airbnb g: This home is just amazing. . . the location, the private beach access, the home itself was perfection. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 kids and enjoyed all of the space. Very quite and private, we walked around in our jammies alot :) They are developing a new town that is walking distance from this home, a great little walk down the beach to anything you may need; food, groceries, drinks, shops. Great new development. And Port St Joe is just a short drive. We preferred it to Mexico Beach which is even closer. you will not regret booking this home, we will be back!

Property Manager Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. We're so pleased that you had an exceptional experience at Ava's Beach House, and it would be our pleasure to host your next visit again soon!

Michelle : My children, pets and I stayed for an extended stay during off season in one incredible place. Ava’s Beach house located in Port Saint Joe. This house is like no other. Privacy from all unobstructed views. The location is dreamy. The house is so well built. Every last detail of this place will leave you wondering if you’re really living.. it’s magic. The house features museum like artifacts of both local and personal effects. No room is spared in character, comfy furniture and a home like atmosphere. Whatever you need is there. From the beach and supplies needed, to an outdoor kennel attached to the rear of the house. A swing and toys for the kids.. culture. Nature. This is it. Out of all of our military travels, nothing has ever been so good. We loved it so much, we decided to buy here. Thank you Fergson family. Thank you for sincere home. It is so good to find a great place to land.

Daniel : Our stay was awesome. The only thing I would change is that the house was advertised as having a half bath down stairs but it was locked. I emailed about this and getting a late checkout and never received a response. Also, the wifi password was incorrect.
