great pet friendly home in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this home for 3weeks in January 2017. Pros .... Private location, fenced yard, home has everything you need, beach is only a few blocks away, nicely decorated home.

Cons...no swimming in January, air temps were 60 to 70 but water was cold, many restaurants were closed for season, need a comfy chair or two.

Amazing home to rent, right on the bay.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Soggy Paws, especially our fur babies. The owners had everything we needed for a pups (very petfriendly). Very accommodating to all of us..4 or 2 legged. We all loved the bay very much. Kayaks, and golf carts were great to use. Soggy Paws is a beautiful getaway. We will be back.

Turkey at the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely Thanksgiving stay at Soggy Paws. We've been coming to the Cape for many years and it seems to get more beautiful as time passes. Soggy Paws was perfect - immaculate, well appointed (even dish machine and laundry soap, not to mention a golf cart, bikes, and kayaks!), and perfectly situated on the bay side. November is a fantastic time to be in the Panhandle, with excellent weather for bike riding, long walks on the beach (the dogs were thrilled), or just lazing on the back porch with a good book (no mosquitoes!!). Thank you, Murray and Emma, for providing such a gracious vacation spot.

Awesome, peaceful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this vacation was perfect! We love Cape San Blas - this was our 4th vacation week on the cape. The beach is clean, sand is white, and there are no crowds. Activities include snorkeling in the bay and gulf, kayaking in the bay, sunbathing, boating and fishing. It's fun trying all of the different restaurants - no chains here! Our favorite is Killer Seafood in Mexico Beach. Panama City Beach is a day trip that we've taken several times. Great snorkeling at the state park there. The state park on Cape San Blas is nice & close to the house. The harbor is a calm area to snorkel, kayak, or just swim.

The house had everything that we needed, including the updated kitchen & bathrooms. The open concept living area was so comfortable & relaxing. The back deck allows for beautiful views of the bay.

The best thing for us, though, was the fenced yard and the pet-friendly owners. Our dogs enjoy their vacation so much more when they can run & play outside. They quickly learned that the back gate led to bay & couldn't wait to go romp in the water. There is a hose at the bottom of the front stairs to rinse the dogs off & the front deck was a great place for them to dry off. Inside, there were large dog beds for comfortable naps.

The home owners are very accommodating and accessible for any questions or issues.

We have already booked this home for our next vacation!

Wonderful Family Weekend Escape

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for the whole family. Everything you could possibly need, except food, is made available for your stay. We have stayed in pet friendly locations before, however, this was the first that was actually fenced in so we didn't have to worry about Jax wandering off. He was the most behaved we've had him, even more than at home! It's like he knew it wasn't his territory. The home was beautiful! Everything was up to date to include the appliances and bathrooms; you can tell the property owners take great pride in their property. The kayaks were great to just putt around in the bay and the golf cart was extremely useful to get us all back and forth to the beach. For once, we actually felt like we were in a relaxing vacation area; not busied with all the tourist hubbub. It was also so nice to not be over run with people at the beach. I would definitely recommend this property for a getaway!

winter rates are $85 per night for stays of 28 days or more plus applicable fees.

Early in 2016, VRBO introduced a service fee which ranges from 4-9% ... this is a VRBO fee and has nothing to do with us and to be honest is simply a money maker for them. Any feedback regarding this fee should be directed to VRBO.
