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.

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.
Cable TV in two rooms, DVD player, wireless internet, walk to the Trading Post store.
This was our first time at Cape San Blas. The cottage is just as described. The kitchen and small bathroom were clean, as well as the towels and linens. The full bed was the most comfortable. After a day at the beach or exploring nearby areas, the cottage was a great place to come back to. Parking was difficult due to the other vehicles. The neighbors and other guests around were very friendly. We were not bothered by any construction or barking dogs as mentioned in a previous review. We were able to walk to the trading post for those yummy famous donuts. The owner was easy to work with. Great experience overall!
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.
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.
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!
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!
We had a great stay. We would have no regrets staying there again. Super short walk to beach.
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.
