Rated 4 out of 5 by from Close to the Beach Five of us ladies (all of us over 55 yrs old) came down from Tennessee for a peaceful week of living on the beach mixed with a few days of golf. We had a good time. The nearness to the beach made it great for impromptu walks on the sand. This house was big enough for the 5 of us but would be too crowded for more adults than that. It would work well for a family with small children. The living space is all on one level which had its pluses and minuses. There is no place for adults to get away from each other when they need too, but it is great for doing lots of things together, like cooking, eating, watching TV, and playing games. With not many stairs it was also great for our aging knees and hips. All-in-all, it was a great week.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing that great other than location Our family enjoyed the beach, access, and location. This house is staged to sell, so if you enjoy being in a home that homeowners care about, take pride in their furnishings, and want to share with other than this house is NOT it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very clean! Visited this home in September. Had a wonderful week. Enjoyed the hot tub. Furniture on deck was not exactly as pictured. There wasn't any shade for sitting on deck and viewing beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Relaxing We stayed in October. Perfect weather the area was nice and quiet. The downfalls were the water clarity and just to far away from everything for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dolphins, dolphins, dolphins! I visited this home mid May with my family and dog. We had 3 adults and all had our own bedrooms, which we appreciated. One family member has mobility issues and the proximity of the home to the beach plus the fact that once you go up the external stairs the home is all on one level, made this the perfect home for us. Most of the oceanfront homes on the North Cape are actually further back from the beach. We loved the bay doors in the living room which we kept open throughout the day and switched off the AC. The beds were extremely comfortable and the water pressure in the showers is great. The home has a high level of cable subscription meaning we were able to watch premier league soccer games on NBC sports, no other vacation home we've stayed in has offered this. The carport below has enough space for 3 cars to sit in the shade, which you appreciate when it's 90f. We saw dolphins, multiple times a day, which was amazing. They came extremely close to the shoreline to feed. You can fish and/or kayak right from the shore. The sand further down is compacted, which makes it great for cycling. The sunsets are fantastic, especially enjoyed from the comfort of your private hot tub. We loved this home so much that we never actually ate out at a restaurant because we couldn't bring ourselves to sit inside when we had such a wonderful patio and view back at our vacation rental. I would recommend this home and will definitely want to stay here again when i return to Cape San Blas. I secretly hope the 'forgotten coast' stays forgotten. It's perfect just the way it is!
