We loved it, the weather was a little bit unfriendly for fishing that we intended on doing but we managed. The house is very cozy, situated just were we liked close to the State Park and as well nearby stores and restaurants. Very nice home, will definitely stay again. Loved the sights, wildlife is amazing. Like I said it was a Blast! Thanks Vince. - (Apr 2024 - VRBO)

Take A Chance - Gulf and Bay Access with Neighborhood Pool

Take a Chance was a very peaceful and beautiful place to stay. The home is very close to the beach. The community pool is only a few blocks away and the private walkway to the beach. The house was well stocked with towels we needed and cooking utensils needed. We made a fresh shrimp stir fry one night from the shrimp we got in Port St Joe . The home is very close to Port St Joe where there are lots of nice restaurants I recommend the Quatro Locos the White Marlin and the Smokehouse all great food. We saw a lot of Stingrays swimming when we were at the beach. I had one recommendation to cover the front door with a blind or curtain for extra privacy. Thank you Vince for a beautiful place to stay we look forward to returning to the area again. God bless you and your family and team helping you. - (Oct 2023 - VRBO)

Great rental. Perfect to access the bay and beach. Had to evacuate due to mandatory evacuation and Vince communicated with us throughout. Kitchen could be stocked better but otherwise it was a great place. - (Sep 2023 - VRBO)

This was our second summer spent at Take a Chance and it just doesn't get any better than this house. If big views, natural beauty, and solitude are what you are after look no further! This is our favorite house on the Cape by far. - (Aug 2023 - VRBO)

Can't wait to return

Well situated on the Cape, this home was perfect for the two of us. The kitchen had everything we needed and the entire vacation was better than expected. We'll be back at Take a Chance asap. - (Jul 2023 - VRBO)

This house was the perfect location for our little getaway. Close to restaurants and stores. The house set up was perfect and provided easy access to a private dock Bayside, and a private pathway to the beach. Check in/out was super easy. The property was very clean and large enough to accommodate us comfortably. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be back! - (May 2023 - VRBO)

Although this house could use some TLC, it is priced accordingly and I appreciate the choice of a house that is more affordable. - (Apr 2023 - VRBO)

This place has a great porch and great windows to watch the gulf and the bay. If you would like to have a comfortable home base for viewing and exploring the coast, this is your spot! The kitchen is well equipped for someone who loves to cook. We had a wonderful week's stay here. - (Mar 2023 - VRBO)

Another awesome trip to the Cape. This house had the sunrise and sunset from the decks. Great Little house! - (Mar 2023 - VRBO)

We enjoyed our stay at Take a Chance. It was pet friendly so we were able to take our dog with us and the deck had a gate so she could be outside with us without being on a leash. The property was clean and well maintained. There was easy access to the gorgeous beach, which we were able to walk along every day. - (Jan 2023 - VRBO)
