Overview

About the property

2br Beach cottage with wrap around deck with amazing beach views.

Sail Away is located only 50 steps from the gorgeous sands of the Gulf of Mexico and another short walk to the Trading Post, its location is incredible. NEW IN MARCH: NEW MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES, PILLOWS and BEDDING. NEW PULL OUT COUCH WITH MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS. NEW KITCHEN COOKWARE, ROKU WITH NETFLIX ON 2 TVS. This single level home is accessed by a short flight of exterior stairs making it very convenient for everyone. We have maximized the use of every inch of this small cottage. It is fabulously decorated with great artwork and pops of color and has everything you need to make your stay great. We have thought of everything inside and out with a screened porch, COMPLETELY enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower and a large wraparound deck with picnic table w/ umbrella . There are Adirondack chairs with cushions, ottomans and cup holders to enjoy the ocean view. No matter your location on this large deck, you will have fantastic views. While this property does sleep a total of 6, we would not recommend all adults as space might be tight at maximum capacity. Come for a long weekend, a week or even a month or two. It’s perfect no matter what time of year.

About Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner

My husband and I were looking for a place to go on a nice quite beach vacation with our then 3 & 2yr old children. We saw Cape San Blas on Google maps and decided to go there, we fell in love instantly. We have been going back for a few years now and can not think of a better place to spend time with our family. It is the most peaceful and gorgeous place we have ever been. Every person that we have met there and ones that we have sent there since, have been back numerous times. The beaches are beautiful, sugar fine sand, blue-green water, amazing sunsets.

Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner chose North West Florida

When we finally decided to buy a house in Cape San Blas, Sail Away was our first choice. The cottage charm of this house can not be resisted. Being that it is only 180 steps from the water, maybe 50 steps to the sand, it is ideal for adults and children alike. The wrap around deck has a nonslip finish to make it completely safe for children that have just come out of the outdoor shower.

What makes this cottage unique

You will fall in love with this cottage from the anti slip finish on the wrap-a-round decking & the outdoor shower to the cheery Caribbean colors inside. The fully equipped NEW kitchen has everything you could possible need. The screened in porch has great views and faces the beach so you get that wonderful breeze off of the water. Gulf views from almost every part of the deck. Lets not forget that it is only 50 STEPS from the beach. That's less then a 30 SECOND walk!!! We are only a few hundred feet from the 'Tradin Post' to pick up last minute groceries, beach accessories or pizza and wings. They pretty much have everything you could need, which saves you from having to drive into Port St. Joe. Nationwide calling to anywhere in the 50 United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and to all of Canada so you can keep in touch with family.(cell service is not great in Cape San Blas)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful. Swimming in the sea, watching dolphins, linedancing. It was Paradise. We really enjoyed our time here and will remember it for the rest of our lives.

Cute beach cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at Sail Away. Being so close to the beach was fabulous. The only reason we didn't give 5 full stars is because the place could use a thorough cleaning (wiping down of the walls and deep cleaning of the shower). Overall this is a lovely cottage and we would stay here again.

Quiet and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Sail Away Cottage! The cottage looked exactly as advertised in the pictures. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. A lot of thought was put into the decor and functionality of the cottage. We were close to the boardwalk leading to the beach and conveniently located to the Cape Trading Post. We had plenty of space for our family of 4 and would definitely stay here again in the future!

Great vacation!

My family and I had a great vacation @ Sail Away. We loved the colors and the decor. The house was clean and the location was convenient. It was perfect for our family of 4 and we were sad when we had to leave.

Great weather and great place

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly 50 steps to the beach. Great outdoor shower is convenient as well as the Trading Post, Donuts, and Coffee Shop. Do try Weber's Donuts (especially the Croissants).

BEST LITTLE BEACH HOUSE ON CAPE SAN BLAS

  • 5 of 5

Love this beach cottage. You are just stepps from the beach in a very quiet and relaxing area. It does have tv and wifi for the times you are indoors, but trust me, you wont use them much. especially after you stroll down to the beach and relax on the beautiful whit sand. If you have young children with you as I did, they can play in the water with no worries as it stays shallow for a ways before getting very deep. The surf is calm and relaxing, perfect for the younger explorers. Even thow the home is smaller, we had plenty of room for the 5 of use that stayed there. Mellanie and paul( the owners) are wonderful people. O n this visit the refrigerator started making noise as if it was going to quit. They imediatly had a new one delivered and installed with out interupting our stay. Cant say enuff about them or there wonderful little slice of heaven. I will be returning again this fall and many more times in the years to come. Thank You so much.

Best value just steps from beach!

  • 5 of 5

Love the little cottage that uses every inch wisely! Literally steps from the beach with an Oceanview from deck. Enclosed outside shower makes it a breeze coming off the beach. Short stroll to Trading Post for anything you can need. Donuts. Ice cream, pizza and supplies! Also try the fish tacos at Krazy Fish in PSJ.

Cape san blas beach
Car: recommended

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was America's #1-Beach, in 2002. Scalloping in the St. Joseph Bay is amazing!

Cape San Blas, located at the southernmost tip of Florida's Great Northwest, is home to the #1 beach in the continental United States!What's so special about Cape San Blas?•No amusement parks or hi-rise condos

•No cell phones, pagers, or alarm clocks

•Almost no cars......very few people

It's what you don't have (or want) that makes this place special. Cape San Blas is a get-away...away from the noise...away from the crowds...away from the busy schedules, the telephones, the responsibilities. After a week of enjoying the simplest of pleasures, it's hard to go home.
