Customer Reviews

Sweet Escape Home

“We love this home. Plenty of room, clean, furniture was new and the pool was wonderful!”

— Tom C., Jul 2022

It was a Sweet Escape!

“We loved being on the beach!”

— Danna h., Jul 2022

Beautiful View and Location

“We had a great vacation at Sweet Escapes. The house is located right on the beach with beautiful views in both directions. We loved the easy beach access. And, we loved sitting on the porch and watching the sunset. Baytowne Rentals provided great service and was always responsive to my questions..
I would recommend this rental. ”

— Debbie F., Sep 2021

Blissful Beachfront for Thanksgiving!

“We enjoyed the bright, sunny house and perfect location. The management company was responsive with all of our needs and the house was clean, comfortable and you can't beach the beach location! ”

— Anonymous, Jan 2022

A great experience

“Sweet Escape was a wonderful place. The property was very well maintained and the management was quick to respond to my emails. The St Joe/Mexico Beach area is much quieter and less commercialized than Panama City/Destin and the beach is much less crowded. As a result there are many fewer bars and restaurants in the area. We preferred it that way but it's a matter of individual choice. The sunsets were gorgeous and we got to see plenty of dolphins, one sea turtle and a sting ray. We also enjoyed the fact that the beaches were dog-friendly and we got to see many of them playing on the beach and in the surf.
The amenities were as described and the kitchen was very well outfitted with cooking gear.
I highly recommend this property.”
