Recent Forgotten Coast vacation rental reviews

The house was perfect for my getaway. Description is accurate. Host is very responsive to questions. The outside pool area is perfect for a family gathering with ample seating area for lounging, sitting at the bar or relaxing on the wicker sofa. Only wish the pool had solar panels to heat the pool, but the pool was enjoyed, even though it was cool. Also, loved the easy walk to the beach to enjoy morning and evening walks and sunsets. Indoor accommodations were perfect. Will definitely be returning in the future. 😊

This was our first time renting from Vacasa and it was seamless! The unit was a very large 1599 sq. ft. 2 bedroom. It was very well appointed with everything we needed. Looking forward to using Vacasa again!

We had a lot of people in for a Memorial service. Very nice being close to Family. Very clean, well kept. Property was quiet and close to the beach and town.

Whether you're looking to snorkel in crystal blue waters, learn about rich history by visiting landmarks, or simply revel on your own white, sandy beach, our vacation rentals at the peaceful Forgotten Coast offer it all.

Where is Florida's Forgotten Coast?

Set along Florida's Gulf Coast, the Forgotten Coast starts with the pristine sands of Mexico Beach and ends near Apalachee Bay. About 45 miles east of the busy streets and clubs of Panama City Beach, this largely undeveloped area is close enough to larger cities that you can experience the highly-sought after Florida nightlife but quiet enough to allow you to relax in peace at your own vacation rental.

Things to do on the Forgotten Coast

With the ocean, beaches, and trails of nearby Nature Preserves as your playground, you'll have a wide offering of local attractions and possibilities for fun. Get out in the water with a fun-filled day of snorkeling or scalloping with the experts of Seahorse Water Safaris, or rent your own equipment and head out to discover the wonders of the underwater world just in your backyard.

Create perfect sunset memories with a ride through the waves on horseback! Whether you have a family with kids or desire a romantic ride for two, Two-Bit Stables creates the perfect environment for you to make memories trotting through the gentle surf at Cape San Blas.

Featuring 18 beautiful holes and a 72-par design, the St. Joseph's Bay Country Club just south of Port St. Joe gives golfers the perfect excuse to revel in a lush, tropical landscape. Try to stay out of the water hazards that decorate 14 of the 18 holes as you navigate the fast greens and work on your slice.

Head over to Bluewater Outriggers to get everything you need to catch a few Spanish Mackerels and score some fresh fish to cook in your lovely rental kitchen. Or rent a stand-up paddleboard and get out on the waves for some picturesque paddling along the coast. With everything you need to enjoy the great outdoors, you'll have everything you need at your fingertips to get the most out of your stay.

Day trips and excursions near the Forgotten Coast

Take the coastal road west from your vacation home and hit the vibrant scene at Panama City Beach. Take in the beach views with a walk along the sandy shores or make some friends and jump in a beach volleyball game. Stroll through the stores to find a few mementos for your friends back home or the perfect souvenir to remember your trip by. Stay after sundown for a decadent offering of dining options and world-class nightlife.

For a slower pace, take a drive to the Apalachicola National Forest and explore the beauty of Florida's largest forest. Capture the stunning sights with a few perfectly framed pictures as you hike through the trails or navigate the lush waterways by canoe or kayak. Take a guided tour to learn about the local wildlife and the wonders of the ecosystem.

History fanatics will enjoy stepping through time with a trip to Florida's Constitutional Convention Museum State Park, where you'll see actual artifacts and biographies of the historical figures who brought the first constitution of Florida to life. They even have talking mannequins to portray the debate and process of drafting the document, which will surely be a unique experience.

Boasting a peaceful style of life and a slower pace that begs for lazy afternoons on the beach, Florida's Forgotten Coast is the perfect slice of paradise for you to come and enjoy. Check out our variety of vacation rentals in the area and start planning your relaxing getaway today.
