About Mary Mardan

We bought this property to use as our winter home when we retire. We hope to escape the Midwest winters and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of the beautiful Cape San Blas area .

Mary Mardan purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Mary Mardan chose Port St. Joe

We looked for a long time and in many different areas for a special place that could offer us: natural beauty, close access to the water, unbelievable beaches, fantastic views, great seafood, plenty of space for family and friends, very safe, and pet friendly. We have found all this and more! My favorite place is on the 4th floor screened porch drinking coffee In the morning or just watching the waves anytime.....

What makes this townhome unique

The location of this townhouse in the complex was a huge draw for me . The fact that it was an end unit with windows on 3 sides really opens up the rooms and provides much better views. The location is also very close to the beach (100 steps) and directly across from the pool (25 steps). Town house D-20

Wonderful place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year vacationing on the Cape and it was wonderful. We are the type of family that likes to cook and eat so we can spend as much time as possible on the beach. The Sanctuary has a well stocked kitchen and a wonderful screened in porch to eat on and enjoy the view and the sound of the waves. We had coffee and breakfast out there most mornings and enjoyed reading/relaxing there in the evenings. My niece even fell asleep on the daybed after a wonderful day on the beach. :) The pictures accurately depict the home and the elevator made loading/unloading all of the luggage/groceries so easy. Of note, the elevator opens into the bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor ;). The screened in room on the 1st floor was fantastic for storing our floats/tents/chairs and hanging our towels/hats/coverups for use the next day. The walk to the beach was easy since the paved sidewalk leads from the door of the first floor to the dune walk over. We enjoyed a bonfire on the beach and saw a sea turtle and dolphins. We also walked to ConeHeads for Ice Cream. It was a wonderful vacation and an excellent place to stay. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

The Sanctuary is in a great location, in addition to being a beautiful home. It was very clean and when something came up, Mary and Michelle were very attentive fixed the problem quickly. The cabana on the first floor is a life saver!

Best place we have stayed on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

This rental has so many nice extras that make you feel right at home. The elevator is so helpful for unpacking and packing. Just send all your bags right up and down it. The Cabana is a huge bonus. All of our outdoor gear felt so much more secure being kept inside it. Plus there are plenty of beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, and a wagon for your use. We wish we hadn't brought our own stuff. The pool is so close that it felt like our own private pool. The walk to the beach is very manageable even with kids, wagons, umbrellas or whatever else you are toting back-n-forth. It's not a bad walk at all. It basically felt like one of the beach front units because everyone has to use the boardwalk anyway to get onto the beach. The views from the decks and living room windows make you feel like you are right on the sand. The hammocks are super relaxing and a bonus to have when you just need some down time. The kitchen is fully stocked. We used both coffee makers and the croc pot. What a surprise to find things like soap and salt n pepper already there for us. The home owner is very accommodating and makes you feel like her personal guest. She is easy to contact and responds quickly. Thank you for making your place available for others to enjoy.

Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

This home is so welcoming! Beautiful view from every room, no matter where you are on any of the 4 floors. Perfectly equipped with an ideal location; close to the beach but quiet beach town. The owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns, before, during and and after our stay. We were made to feel like this was our home for the week, including all the small and large amenities. We were even provided Aunt Marion's waffle recipe....yummmm!!!! Would definitely return and highly recommend to anyone looking for a week or two of fun in the sun. Definitely 5 stars!!
