About the property

Spend a week on the beach - 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 6!

Dig your toes in the beautiful, sugar-like sand situated in front of our luxurious beach home. Watch the bald eagles soar over head (they have a nest across the street) and watch the dolphins jump out of the water early in the morning and again at sunset. It is spectacular! Effortlessly walk down the boardwalk from the yard, and nestle yourself in a chair on the dunes to enjoy breath-taking views of the subtle waves and the ever-changing sunsets, or grab something to drink and hang out on the deck and enjoy the breathtaking views. We renovated this beautiful property in early 2016, and the home feels brand new on the inside, with completely redone kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms.

This 1650 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage is located directly on the beach, and can sleep 6 people. With sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico, a large open deck, and steps to a brand new boardwalk that goes out to the beach, this is the perfect place to get some rest and relaxation.

We do offer monthly discounts for extended stays - please inquire for a full rental quote.

About Kate & Garrett

My husband and I are serial entrepreneurs currently living in the Silicon Valley. While we have traveled all around the world, the Cape San Blas area and beaches create a sense of tranquility and seclusion, which is unlike any other place. When we're not working feverishly, we're on the beach enjoying the sugar-like sand, watching for dolphins and eagles from our porch, and dipping into warm ocean water during the summer. We also LOVE the 'off season' because it's quiet, relaxing, and there's always a good sunset to catch- it's the best time to visit the house.

Kate & Garrett purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Kate & Garrett chose North West Florida

We recently purchased this home near Cape San Blas in late 2014 and immediately began renovating and remodeling the home, bringing all the luxuries of home, to our beach home. We fell in love with ocean, the tranquility, and the amazing sunsets years ago, while visiting my husband's family over the holidays two years ago. While we have traveled all over the world, we've found that the Cape San Blas area is one of our favorite places to be! Owning this home is our dream come true, and we look forward to sharing it with your family!

What makes this cottage unique

With the gorgeous and surreal daily sunsets, an unforgettable view of the beach and ocean, and the opportunity to see wild dolphins, countless species of birds, and the ability to comb the beach for sand dollars and shells at a moments notice, buying this home was one of the most satisfying decisions we made.

Great Place Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time! Everything was clean and it is very close to the water.

If one thing could be changed it would be having the laundry upstairs.

I would recommend including all the nice beach toys and chairs when advertising your property. We brought ours from Missouri and could have made room for more souvenirs.

Thanks for a super time on the beach!

Clean and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

very clean and a perfect location on quiet beach. this spot was perfect for my kids as it's so quiet and felt extremely safe there. Not sure how anyone could say the place wasn't clean- I found the place to be spotless. t's a great value for being right on the beach and highly recommend it.

Condo as described

  • 1 of 5

Stay was great, it was the after part that was horrible for us! We left a pair of boots, I emailed multiple times inquiring about them, got one response that she didn't hear anything from cleaners about finding them . I asked again a bit later, then my son remembered where he put them. I emailed again, no reply about it for weeks. My trip was feb 24 weekend. Got an email today saying they'd check again. Over a month later. As of today we still haven't gotten our deposit back. Got an email today that she was sorry some program error and it's now processing. Fine, except that we've emailed and called multiple times from end of February until now April 5 asking how and when to expect our deposit. Once they got our money and our stay, they had no interest in responding. Definitely not easy, quick, or efficient people to work

Owner's Response: Hi Kristen, I am so sorry that you had a bad experience. That is absolutely not what we want for any of our guests. There is absolutely no excuse for the lack of response on our end. Since your stay, we have fired the property manager that was in charge of this home and now my husband and I are personally managing every aspect on our own. I can assure you that this will never happen again. In regards to the boots that you lost, I want to sincerely apologize that our housekeepers did not find them on the property. I know how frustrating that can be. If you want to give us another shot, I'm happy to provide 20% off your next stay at our beautiful home. It sounds like the time you spent at the house was wonderful and it was just the lack of response after your stay that left you frustrated. We have since taken care of this issue and should no longer have this problem with other guests. As you can see from the other reviews, we care deeply about our guests and their experience. Again, I am sorry this was your experience and I hope you will forgive us for your bad experience after you stayed in our home. Best, Kate & Garrett, owners
