Overview

About the property

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

***To avoid confusion, please do NOT send multiple inquiries. Inquiries are answered in the order received.

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.

As described, however.........

  • 3 of 5

Sized worked for the two of us - used one bedroom for sleeping and the other for storage. Parking not defined with lines or a number so created a space by bunching up the garbage bins and tucking in beside a cargo trailer that was never moved. Appreciate that neighbourhood noise is beyond the control of the cottage owners but the area has homes being built/renovated. Construction started at dawn and continued to dusk. Awaken to air hammers, saws, back up beepers, site radios etc. All of this activity set off the dog barking next door.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the heads up. We are off-site owners, so we are sometimes unaware of the construction, etc. I am unaware of a cargo trailer as well. Would you mind sending me a message with details on this, so I can have it taken care of? We've never had a parking issue in the past. Obviously, I can't do anything about construction, but it is certainly good to know so we can share that with our future guests.

Needs some TLC.

  • 2 of 5

This is the 3rd time we had stayed at the property over the last several years and had always been very happy with the cottage. This trip that was not the case, when we got into bed the first night the sheets were full of sand, it was obvious they had not been changed. I sent an email to the link I had for the property manager to let her know about it, to which I still have not received a response. Also the heater/ AC ran but did not heat or cool and finally the carpet is in need of a serious cleaning, if i am paying to stay at a rental plus a cleaning fee I expect it to be clean when I arrive and everything to work properly.

Owner's Response: Wow, I am so surprised by this review. I am so sorry there were issues! We have always addressed any and all issues immediately. I did not receive an email from you at any time after your arrival. Just in case, please always feel free to call or text the number provided, as heating and cooling are certainly an emergency. I have notified the the cleaning staff of the sheets. The a/c was recently repaired and serviced and had family stay just after you with no issues, so hopefully it was just a setting. The carpet will be replaced soon, as the beach sand has taken it's toll on it, although we do clean it regularly. :) We've also recently met with a contractor to do some other exciting improvements! We pride ourselves on cleanliness and sharing our getaway for others to create memories. Thank you again for bringing my attention to these issues and I apologize that you were not satisfied.

Quaint cottage

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location. We had a grand mini vacation with 3 adults and 3 kids. Cottage was nothing extra but everything we needed. Easy, sand walk to the beach. Comfortable beds, nice linens and towels. Thanks!

SIMPLY ENTIRELY WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED EVERYTHING here! This cottage is EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR! It is exactly as described. Steps to the beach - AWESOME! I couldn't have special ordered anything better! Quiet, peaceful, truly great! There were so many shells on the beach! My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! I can hardly wait to be able to come again! Thank you for everything!

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!

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.
