Cape San Blas, Florida

The Sand Dollar

Modern Beach House with Multi-Level Decks, Beach Access and Ocean Views

A modern beach house overlooking the Gulf Coast, The Sand Dollar offers easy access to the ocean in the relaxed, laid-back atmosphere of The Forgotten Coast. The two-level home sits above a covered patio for sweeping beach views from multi-level decks. Ideal for couples or a small family, the home features two en-suite bedrooms, located on either floor for maximum privacy, and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room to comfortably accommodate up to six guests.

The Grounds
Located on a quiet street just off the beach, The Sand Dollar sits on manicured grounds with lush lawns and towering palm trees. Driveway parking for two vehicles makes it easily explore the surrounding area, including nature preserves and state parks. On the ground level, you’ll find a private laundry area, outdoor shower, and covered patio with stairs to the main entry. Walk just across the street to access the white, sandy beaches of 30A in Money Bayou, and take advantage of the gas grill to prepare your catch of the day. Ask our local team about the best places for fishing or scalloping.

The Home
The entrance to The Sand Dollar lies on the second level, where an open-concept living area greets you with double-height ceilings and an inviting, modern aesthetic. Sliding glass doors open the living room onto the Gulf-view deck, allowing light to flood the interior. A full-length sofa faces a wide-screen TV for movie nights after a day of playing outside.

Just off the living area, a four-seat dining table and two stools at the breakfast bar seat six for dinner. With stainless steel appliances, a Jenn-Air stove with grill and an open layout, the kitchen will inspire your inner chef.

The first of the home’s two bedroom suites lies down the hall, featuring a queen bed and en-suite bathroom with a step-in shower. This floor also has a shared half-bath.

Outside, adirondack chairs invite mornings over coffee, or relaxed evenings over a glass of wine with an ocean soundtrack. A spiral staircase leads to an upper deck, also furnished with adirondack chairs, for even more spectacular views.

The primary suite lies on the upper floor, offering total privacy. This brightly decorated room features a queen bed, walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with combination shower/tub.

Surrounding Area
From your prime position along 30A, you’ll have a front-row seat to white-sandy beaches for lazy days beneath an umbrella, swimming in the waves, or wading along the shore. Take out a kayak, or try your sea legs on a stand-up paddleboard. The quiet, residential neighborhood is also ideal for a stroll or cruiser bike ride.

Within a 15-minute drive, you’ll find parks, nature preserves and wildlife areas with walking trails and family-friendly activities. On your way home, stop by one of the area’s seafood or BBQ restaurants.

Between its ideal location, modern amenities and privacy for guests, The Sand Dollar is an ideal place to call home when you visit The Forgotten Coast.

Was a great experience all around, any issue we had it was fixed in a quick and timely manner. Highly recommend and will repeat business with them again!

The home was very clean. However, the primary reason was the quick response to replace a broken washer in just a few hours. Thank you.

Communications on our stay were timely and informative. The property was as advertised, cleaner than other non NR properties we have rented on the south-east coasts. We appreciated that linens were provided and that a starter supply of laundry/dish/bath/kitchen supplies were given. Great job!

The rental at Money Beach / Cape San Blas was great and well-kept but Natural Retreats quick service response is why I rated our stay as a 10. On the second day, we discovered that the stovetop did not work. I texted Natural Retreats, they responded within 5 mins and a serviceman was there in less than an hour. Really incredible response time. Thank you!

I tapped on the cleanliness icon mistake. The place was real clean. No problem. However, the stove did not function properly, especially the fan which set off the fire alarm every time we cooked anything. The stove appliance was outdated and needed replacement

The house and location was great. The people are very friendly, very helpful. If we needed anything then all we had to do was call and they can answer our questions. Just a few steps from the beach.
