We enjoyed the Scallop Cove #1 week we had. The beach gear delivered was so convenient. The house was well equipped and clean. We have rented it again for next year.

Communication was great, but there was no toilet paper in the unit when we arrived and we arrived late after everything was closed, so that was not fun.

The outstanding customer service by 360 Blue and Natural Retreats was amazing. You all should be commended. We have been coming to CSB for 14 years, and I have never had such a great check in/out experience. And the home we rented was so cute! Thank you for everything. Heather

Nice area to stay in, the backyard is great for dogs and the dock was nice to have if you like fishing or kayaking. I would recommend bringing repellent for biting flies, they come out at night and in the morning, but that's something any place has. The host was very responsive and helpful, and we enjoyed our week long stay here.

Great location and really nice bed. Just a few things missing from the kitchen… a full size colander, better spatula and rubber spatula. It was great otherwise. And tongs , there were no tongs.

Great location and the home was perfect for what we were looking for.

Everything was perfect. One phone call when we checked it, answered and solved promptly & courteously. Great instructions left for us. Lots of little touches. Wonderful company; thank you so much!

A super cute place to stay on the bay! This was a perfect spot for a weeklong getaway. It’s close to the general store, which is nice if you need to pick up any basic supplies. We even got coffee and breakfast sandwiches there several mornings. The grassy field in front of the house is great if you have a dog, and you get beautiful views of the sunrise over the bay. There’s even a small dock where you could launch kayaks. The walkway to beach access was in disrepair, and I think it would be difficult to use if you had a wagon, but was fine for walking. Overall, a great spot!

The cabin was clean, bright, and very comfortable. The location was everything we had hoped for. Natural Retreats went out of their way to communicate and ensure an easy stay.
Airbnb guestAugust 2021
Ease of access. We had everything we needed while staying. Our only improvement to the stay would have been a mattress pad on the king bed and some additional hooks for towels, etc. Thanks!

You were very responsive to us on a couple of things that were unexpected (Charcoal BBQ rather than Gas and a few missing towels). We had a great time and will return.

The vacation agent was very helpful. Loved the low deposit ($500) to hold a property for the next year. Very clean property.

Everything we needed was already at scallop cove#1. House was clean and master bed was really comfortable. My family loves staying on the bay while still having easy access to the beach.

Awesome week!

Third time to the Cape and once again it did not disappoint!! Perfect little place to stay and celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Great convenient location. Clean and decorated very cute!! Was just 2 of us but could easily accommodate a family with a couple of kids as well.

Excellent location

I visited the home in August. It was in a great location. Loved being able to bring our dogs. Grass was good for the dogs, and we enjoyed both the bay and ocean. Ocean was literally steps away. Only suggestion would be to treat the grass for mosquitoes. They were bearable during sunlight but very bad when the sun was down. We will be back. Loved that the beach was so close and no packed at all!

We loved the cottage

My husband just retired & we love the forgotten coast and the laid back atmosphere! This was our first trip to Cape San Blas. We are amazed at the strength of the people in the area during the recovery from Michael! We look forward to another trip to the Cape ASAP! The location of the cottage is perfect & it is beautiful.

Talk about a happy place!!

My friends and I stayed in this perfect little cottage for almost a week and we couldn’t have been any happier with our stay!! From waking up in the morning with a beautiful bay view to being just steps away from the beach, we absolutely loved this location. Plenty of great restaurants nearby to choose from. It was clean, had cute decorations, AND allowed dogs! The only bad thing about my stay was that I had to leave...but I will be coming back!!

Amazing escape with a beautiful view

My family and I visited Scallop Cove #1 in September of 2018 and what a wonderful place to escape to! The view of the bay from the screened in porch was so relaxing. Access to the beach was a simple walk across the street, very convenient to the house. My family and I will definitely be back!

Great for the value, just missing a few details

My husband & our 2 labs stayed here this past week & it was great especially for the value. BUT there were a few things that I think they could improve on. I also know this is all just my opinion & perspective, depending on what you are accustomed to. For example, the closet in the main bedroom was locked with padlock & I understand the owners need a place to store things, but that left no place to hang clothes for that bedroom, nor did they have any clothes hangers. Not only until the end of the trip did I realize the slender, small cabinet in the other room had a few hangers and a place to hang clothes, but it was very tiny & if we had other guests, we could not all share that small cabinet. I also thought they should have more hooks throughout the house to hang items. There were 3 in the bathroom for towels and such, but we ended up using those for the leashes, & miscellaneous items you hang. Also, there are NO curtains, blinds, or window coverings for the majority of the house. So at night if you are on the pier, or outside you can see inside & see everything going on inside all the rentals. Not that I didn't feel safe, but I feel like there should be some sort of shades. Plus during the day & early morning it was very hot due to the sun streaming directly into the house, but it was gorgeous! This was also an issue, for our first full day there, the pesticide man came to spray and walked in our porch as I am in my pajamas at the table eating breakfast where he could see me plain as day. We were not informed he was coming, & honestly it would have not been an issue if the windows/door were covered and I had time to move to back while my husband let him in. But besides these few things, it was a great valuable quaint space for a getaway to an awesome location. I also wish there was a way to leave the outdoor shower water on instead of having to hold the handle... we need two hands to wash off ourselves and dogs!

Peaceful Retreat

Beautiful Cottage nestled between the Bay and the Gulf. Very clean and lovely decor. A great place to go for peace. Kitchen set up nicely for those of us who like to cook. I WILL return!!

Perfect getaway!! So relaxing!!

We absolutely love this place! With the gorgeous view of the bay out front and the beautiful beach across the street it is the perfect location. We were able to fish right off the dock and they had a filleting station right there. We visited for my birthday back in March of this year and it was by far one of the most enjoyable and relaxing vacations we have been on. We also loved that it is dog friendly, very spacious, and very clean!It is the perfect getaway beach house. We are already planning on going back next year and would recommend this place to anyone!

Just got home from a week long vacation at this beach cottage. It's truly perfect. It's not only steps from the beach but steps from the bay. Best of both worlds. Clean and bright, we wanted for nothing in this well stocked beach home. Responsive owners, pet friendly and a perfect location for a family/couple wanting a beach getaway in a unique town! Highly recommend!!! We will be back! Thank you Brandon and Sara Cavazos
