Jim, Jamie & Jude welcome you to our home. We are Florida natives, and love the serenity and tranquility Cape San Blas has to offer. Spending time at the coast is what we love to do as a family!
jamie christoff purchased this house in 2013
In Spring 2013 we purchased Cape Palms because of its fantastic wooded setting and private pool. We thought we had seen the most special parts of the Cape until we found this home in Two Palms now we found one more!
We love sitting on the porch with a glass of wine surrounded in pine trees with the water sparkling through the trees. The private screened in pool is also very relaxing.
The home is clean and wonderfully appointed. We were all very comfortable. The beach is a short walk down the road to two possible boardwalks between houses. We had our dog with us and she had a blast on the beach - especially on the days that were a little overcast when I illegally took her off leash and threw her ball or stick. There were lots of people who took their dogs off leash as long as they stay close, but beware that they do patrol on the beach and we got a ticketed for our dog who was sitting next to my chair but not on her leash. I will definitely find a beach in the future who allows dogs off leash under voice control, which she is.
Would definitely recommend the house - just be careful on the stairs since they are tile and when wet, are slippery.
The location is a lovely, quiet piece of paradise! Reminds me somewhat of Sanibel/Captiva from 30 years ago. The Forgotten Coast is charming and there doesn't seem to be much of that Old Florida charm left these days.
My husband and I, along with my daughter, her husband and their dog, spent a long Mother's Day weekend at Cape Palms. It was wonderful. The house is plenty spacious inside with two levels of wraparound porches — so we could be as together, or apart as we wanted. The beach is a short walk away and, after spending part of the day sunning and swimming, it was great to be able to return to the house and spend time floating around in the pool. The neighborhood is quiet — we felt like we had our own personal oasis in paradise. I have never felt so relaxed as I did lazing in the hammock on the porch, enjoying the sea breezes. There are plenty of rental places and restaurants up the road, and the charming town of Apalachicola is just a short drive away, but if quiet and relaxation are what you're looking for, this is the place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from day 1 to the last walk on the beach. It was everything that was advertised and more. We have already recommended it to others already. Hope yo be able to go back next fall for our anniversary.
We had a wonderful week at the beach. Loved the area and the house was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. The main living area and kitchen were on the third floor and that took a little getting used to. Loved the private pool and the neighborhood was quiet. We especially enjoyed the landscaping and trees around the grounds. We would definitely vacation here again.
We loved the home and it's location. It was close to Port St Joe for restaurants and groceries. We loved the wrap around porches that had a view of the ocean. Thank you, John and Dawn for attention to details.
Well lets start off with upon our arrival ( after a 9 hour drive) we are hungry , tired and go to fix some food that we picked up at the grocery store (30 min away) and found no paper towels or napkins. In addition to only having 1 dish towel and 1 rag!!!
No cloth napkins either, there was nothing.
The tv did not function and there were hairs ( from someone's body ) on our sheets.
Now let me back to the email exchange prior to our arrival.
Email: Hi Dawn,
We are checking in on Thursday and wanted to make sure the bedding/ bedspreads / shams are all laundered before our arrival.
Also will there be towels available?
Cape Palms is ready for your visit with towels.
The response was vague , but ok I am assuming the bedding was laundered.
My husband and I travel often and all over the world and we are aware the bedspreads and shams seldom get laundered and we are happy to provide our own in addition to anything else we may need ie " paper products ".
Now we have stayed in many VRBO/ Vacation rentals and never not even once have there not been paper products.
About the bedding , I phoned John about the master bed' s linens, bedspread and shams as they had a funk to them in addition to hairs , lil black ones.
We had to sleep in a different room. luckily there were 3 bedrooms and our guest did not arrive til the following day.
We could have laundered these ourself , but there was dirty laundry in the washer and again no soap was provided.
Johns response was he would be by in the morning as he was just getting back in town.
He shows up inspected the sheets and said " it is not our Policy to provide paper products or launder the bedspread / shams after each guest" this is after my specific email and his vague response.
Then proceeded to argue with me about what was said.
We just wanted a resolution.
Please see email above.
The bottom line he was dishonest the home was not ready and with proper communication we could have adjusted had we known the home was not well equipped for guest.
You are required to clean dishes upon departure , yet there was not dish soap available to wash dishes by hand.
No privacy, the window coverings in the MB are see through.
As noted in the " book " they often drive by and see what you are doing. Ie "don't leave windows open while the air is on"
How would they know, the home cannot be seen from the road?
