Great little getaway
Perfect, small condo right on the beach! Beautiful view from both floors. Kitchen was well stocked, too. Only thing to note is that this is located right next to the public access entrance. There are more people coming in and out and potentially invading your personal space when on the beach.
Hello Amanda. Thank you for your review of Sparkle Plenty. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the view and found the accommodations met your vacation needs.
We know that the beach is a very popular place, especially in the summer. Hopefully next time, we can find you a place with a little less traffic. We look forward to seeing you again.
I gave stayed at Sparkle Plenty twice and absolutely love it. I Love Cape San Blas.
Comfortable townhouse close to the beach
We thoroughly enjoyed staying so close to the beach at Sparkle Plenty. It made enjoying the beach all day long easy as we could quickly walk back for snacks throughout the day. It was also nice to be able to bring our dog to the beach with us and take him back to the house when he needed a break from the heat. The little doggy welcome basket with dog towels, a food/water bowl, poop bags, and a dog toy was a nice touch. The kitchen was well stocked with pots/pans/cooking utensils. We cooked almost every meal while we were there. The view from the two decks was quite nice as well. Even though we were there over a holiday weekend and the house is right next to a public park, we didn't find the beach to be too crowded.
The only trouble we encountered while staying at Sparkle Plenty was finding a good place to walk our dog when he needed to go potty. There were sand burrs in the grass in many places, and he was bitten by a pygmy rattler in a relatively manicured area while on a walk on our first night there, and the closest emergency vet was 1.5 hours away in Panama City Beach. I'm not familiar with Cape San Blas, so I don't know how common snakes are in the area. Perhaps this was truly just bad luck. This issue wouldn't keep us from returning to Sparkle Plenty because we really did enjoy the rest of our stay, but I think it's worth noting so future visitors can be vigilant while walking their dog at night.
Great location on the Cape
Sparkle Plenty was a good place to stay on Cape San Blas - the beach was a short walk away and the Trading Post, along with Weber's Little Donut Shop and also the ice cream place are just a mile down the road. It was the perfect size for 4 adults. Liked the fact that both bedrooms had bathrooms attached. The kitchen was well equipped, and the grill was also in good shape. We were easily able to cook good meals at this house. Also there were enough dishes so that we didn't have to run the dishwasher after every meal. Enjoyed being able to have our dogs with us. Two negatives - the house is right behind a row of condos, so the beach right here was a bit crowded and the mattresses were worn with noticeable dips where people have slept and had a ridge in the middle. New mattresses would make this a more comfortable place to stay. The back porch was a terrific place to sit for morning coffee, and from the top deck, the view is quite nice. Having an ice maker in the house was a big plus as well.
Very nice place
Great place and nice location. Very cool place right next to the public parking area. Nice very short walk to the ocean. The only thing is that it’s a little dated. We will definitely be renting this place again. Really have no complaints at all. Very peaceful!!!!
Great 4th trip to Sparkle Plenty
Great location...Steps to the beach. Walking our poodles multiple times a day and having your morning coffee off the back deck. AWESOME trip. This unit is extremely clean. Do not hesitate to rent this unit. We love the low key environment at Cape San Blas area and fun places to go eat all around. We will back again for another fun trip... Montgomery Alabama Beach nuts and poodles in tow. Enjoy!
Cape San Blas is a 17-mile long barrier peninsula, curving around St. Joseph Bay offering playful surf and white sand beaches on the Gulf side and smooth, shallow water on the Bay side. The Cape is known for its clear, sometimes blue, sometimes green water and low, gentle surf. Families who vacation on the Cape choose this spot for both its beauty and its seclusion.
