Fun Beach Home, Perfect for the Young-at-Heart with Kayaking, Snorkeling, and Fishing Nearby

STARBRIGHT is a fun vacation house just 200 yards from the sugar-white sandy beaches of Cape San Blas. Hand-painted fish and bubbles decorate this home; let the kids make a game of counting the bubbles -- they are throughout the house. With 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, this home is perfect for a family or couples wanting to share a beach vacation together.

Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, Gulf and Bay access are all within walking distance. No major roads to cross in your walk to the Gulf, just a quiet stroll through the community of San Dunes. For the active-minded, Starbright is just across the road from the 8-mile Logger Head Walk/Bike Path. This path runs from the beginning of Cape San Blas Road to the State Park, making Starbright a great choice for biking and walking enthusiasts that don’t want to give up their lifestyle even on vacation.

Your reservation includes $250 worth of beach gear. That's right! Rent a beach wagon, beach chairs, umbrellas, paddle boards, and more for your stay. Your $250 credit will go a long way!

In addition to the free Beach Gear, we have another gift for booking through us…free admission to Cape San Blas activities! Termed the Xplorie Program, our guests will receive one free adult admission ticket, per night stayed, to attractions like chartered fishing, golf and horseback riding on the beach. It’s our way of saying “thanks!”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very clean but serious bat problems My family and I stayed here two weeks ago. It's is a spotless home. Unfortunately, we had issues with bats. When we arrived there were many baby bats on the ground. Lots of adult bats flying around also. I believe that the bats have made this house a home. There was a horrible smell near the top of one of the staircases. It smelled like some kind of dead animal or animal excretion. We noticed a hole underneath the porch going into carport. Also, on said staircase, under the 2nd step from the top there is an opening to the house that could host the bats. Overall, we were comfortable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it Our vacation was fun. However, when we arrived, the house was not clean and smelled awful. We had to call for a cleaning crew: there was black hair on the floor and food under the recliner; the whole place needs updating and repairs on the porch furniture; the door to the main bathroom did not lock ( a problem); kitchen not properly stocked, and ceiling fans had layers of dust on them. The price was twice the cost of one 2 houses down that we have used for 3 years (unavailable this year). Plus, it is quite a trek to the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time had, comfortable We stayed for 4th of July week 2017, the home is loaded kitchen tools and has ample misc items for beach activities. Washer dryer worked great. Second bath shares with living area which is a bit awkward but manageable. Ac blows very cold, furnishings very comfortable. Charcoal grill is a good one. Beach is accessible but quite a hike. Natural Retreat service is awesome.
