About the property

Spend a week on the beach - 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleep up to 8!

Dig your toes in the beautiful, sugar-like sand situated in front of our luxurious beach home. 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 2015, and the home feels brand new on the inside, with completely redone kitchens, 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.

About Sarah R

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.

Sarah R purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Sarah R 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.

Awesome Christmas vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well taken care of, had all the amenities we needed and more, gulf front with easy and private beach access. We couldn't have asked for more, truly. The home is managed by the owners which I always prefer because they take better care of the home and care more about the guests. I would highly recommend this home and the owners. Top notch and affordable. Thank you for a lovely Christmas vacation!

Great home, Great Location, Beautiful beach!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely had a blast while we stayed in this home. The home has been remodeled, well-taken care of. You can't tell it's a rental, which is really nice. There are two cottages on the property - they are not attached like a duplex is, but they are close to one another. We didn't mind this since the price was so reasonable compared to other homes in the area. We could not get a beachfront home for close to this price anywhere else. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Totally vacant which is so nice! It's like you have the whole beach to yourself. The neighborhood is one of the nicest on the Cape/Indian Pass area. It's a wealthier neighborhood in my opinion and the homes are well-kept. Cape San Blas is nice, but the houses are right on top of each other. This neighborhood is spread out which means a nice vacation without people stepping all over you.

The fishing was great off the beach, the kids went snorkeling, we went kayaking in the bay, went into town for good food (Check out the Krazy Fish Grille & Bar - GREAT Pina Colada's and food). We already booked our vacation back here. Really love the owners. They were so sweet when we had a minor problem and were quick to fix it. We couldn't ask for more. Thank you, Kate, Garrett & Sarah!

Well stocked, beautiful home. Really loved the location and the beach. Cottage was recently remodeled and you can tell! Owners really put a lot of effort into the home and the furnishings. There are 2 cottages on the same property but they are not physically attached. This provides enough privacy for any family and we immensely enjoyed our stay. Would 100% recommend the management company, the owners, and this property.

Fantastic home & management!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was absolutely beautiful and well taken care of. We had some issues while we were there with the cable tv and Sarah, the property manager, had it handled in no time. First of all, there are two cottages on the property that are stand alone. I saw some reviews that complained about this but it wasn't an issue for us. It is basically like having a regular house next to you. There is a shared deck but it is only so that you can go down to the beach. We didn't feel like it was awkward or anything. The family in the home next to us had tween girls and it was fun to see them enjoying the beach as much as us old folks were. My husband and I loved this place so much that we already booked for next year. I hate seeing some of these other guests get so grumpy about their stay. We all have to remember that these homes are not hotels. They are homes and the owners are opening them up to us so that we can have a wonderful experience in something other than a hotel. We certainly did and we can't wait until next year! Book this cute cottage and you won't regret it!

Great Location - Very Relaxing and Peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a couple of weeks in January and really enjoyed being in Florida for a couple of weeks to escape the freezing cold. The house itself does share a large deck with another cottage - but it was great to meet another snow-bird couple and we didn't see them much. There are two sets of everything - so you don't really share anything with the other home.

The beach was beautiful- right out the back deck, and we enjoyed many meals in the kitchen watching the dolphins swim by and other wildlife.

Overall this was a peaceful and very relaxing trip - our only complaint is that cell service can be spotty, but the property manager alerted me of this ahead of time so we knew to expect it. We are hoping to book a month next year.

Dishonesty and extra fees

  • 1 of 5

This was not a horrible place. But, to start, the advertising is created to try to show it as a stand alone home. The internet was very spotty, which meant that the phones were as well. With no cell service in the area, that makes it impossible to report. Not that you go on vacation to stay on the phone. But don't think you'll be able to work if you really need to. The instructions on how not to damage their "very expensive" flooring made us feel like children being reprimanded before even getting unpacked.

Here's the worst part. We have 2 dogs that travel with us. They are both extremely well behaved and do not mess with anything. We are clean people. So, before leaving, we cleaned the place from top to bottom. (We had already been reprimanded anyway.) After we got home, we were notified of a ridiculous fee to clean the bedding that our dog supposedly peed on multiple times. This absolutely did not happen When we tried to communicate with the manager and the owner, they just ignored us. They never provided any real explanation, and certainly no proof. To charge someone an additional fee and then completely ignore them when they try to discuss it with you is enough for me to tell anyone not to ever stay here. I'm only writing this review now because we're booking for our next trip this year and I want to save others from being disappointed.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff and Family- I really appreciate the review, even if it is almost a year after your stay. I definitely have taken your feedback into account and wish that we could have done more during your stay and post stay to make your experiences better. We are a family run and operated company and try our best to provide our guests with the best possible experience. Regarding the phone & internet - we provide the best internet and cable that is available in the area. Unfortunately, there aren't many options, so we do the best we can! As you know, the home is in a secluded and quiet part of Florida and as such, cell service/reception is often spotty. We provide a landline that is free for guests that you were welcome to use. As far as the guest book wording - we're sorry it felt like a reprimand. We want our guests to feel welcome. The owners spent over a year renovating the home and put a lot of work and effort into it - and they just want to make sure it stays nice for all guests who stay there. To address your concerns about the fee for the dog urine - I sent your wife an e-mail and never heard back, and I never received any phone calls or e-mails, and gladly would have provided documentation of the dog urine that ruined the duvet covers. Regardless, I am sorry that you felt like we just charged you a fee for no reason. That's not how we do business and I would have definitely responded to any concerns. Again, I apologize that these experiences negatively impacted your vacation. Despite these issues -we hope that you enjoyed the beautiful beach and great Florida weather! Sincerely, Sarah Property Manager
