Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Port Saint Joe - Dolphin Dance Cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

The Dolphin Dance cottage is just a short walk - 30 yards or so - to the sparkling white beach of Florida's Gulf Coast. It sits on the beach side of the road, behind the beachfront properties. Minutes from Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas is quiet and remarkably free of the high-traffic, tourist area crowd. Cape San Blas is a peninsula, so there is no 'thru-traffic' to deal with either. If you are looking for a quiet, family atmosphere near the unspoiled beaches of Florida, Cape San Blas is a must for your summer vacation.

The kitchen has full-size appliances and a dishwasher in the center island. A stackable washer/dryer unit is in the smaller bedroom closet. Cable TV in main bedroom and living room, local telephone and wireless internet also included. Sorry...no boat or trailer parking, but there are marinas nearby.

Contact Preference: CHECK THE CALENDAR FIRST, THEN SEND EMAIL VIA VRBO. Emails go to my cell phone and I can check availability before getting back to you. For last minute inquiries, send email before you call. I get multiple inquiries on multiple properties daily and I am often on the road. An email helps me determine whose inquiry came in first and puts your contact information in my mailbox for future reference. I absolutely cannot and do not confirm a reservation by phone, although I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

Keywords: Cottage just off beach on the barrier dunes of Cape San Blas. Just behind the Tradin' Post, less than 100 yards from beach.

Why Jolie Cooper chose North West Florida

We fell in love with the unspoiled beach at Cape San Blas and the quiet, peaceful life on the 'island'. It is close enough for day trips to Apalachicola and Panama City and has plenty of restaurants to choose from in nearby Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Cable TV in two rooms, DVD player, wireless internet, walk to the Trading Post store.

Love the Cape

  • 5 of 5

I have been to CSB many times but never during the cooler months. It is now my favorite time of year to visit! I love Dolpihn Dance Cottage. It is centrally located on the Cape behind the Trading Post where fresh doughnuts are made daily, the beach is only a few steps away and the cottage is the perfect size!

This is the real deal

  • 5 of 5

They don't call it the undiscovered coast for nothing. Beautiful beach, solitude, uncommercial, wonderful shelling .. St. Georges's Island doesn't compare to the clear green waters of the Cape. Trust me. I grew up in Florida and this beach is one of the best. Cassie is wondeful to deal with and the cabin is perfect for a couple or small family. Love love love this place.

Best Deal On the Cape

  • 5 of 5

This gem is just steps away from the beach, a stones throw away from a mini grocery and had a very comfortable queen size bed! It had every amenity that we needed and was the deal on the beach! I will be back SOON!

Just What The Doctor Ordered!

  • 5 of 5

Came to this cabin just 6 days after my last radiation from breast cancer. Husband and I relaxed more than we have in a long time. Everything you need is there, and the short walk to the most gorgeous beaches is worth every step. It was very theraputic for me because I could walk for miles on the beach and not tire as easliy on regular ground. Thank you so much Cassie, for having a great spot!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a relaxing time. I think this place is an oasis from the real world and one of Florida's few unspoiled beaches still open to the public. You're in my prayers! Cassie

Cape San Blas
Car: recommended

Cape San Blas is one of the few remaining 'non-touristy' Florida beaches. Close enough to restaurants, but quiet, family atmosphere on the cape's beaches.
