Read our reviews from our fantastic guests so far! We strive to be the best on the Cape! Coastal Cabin is your home away form home! Upon arriving you'll be taken away from the amazing views! Stepping foot into our cozy getaway, you will be welcomed with a huge open floor plan. The cypress walls and rock accents add to the warmth and coziness of the Cabin. The living room has not one but three sofas and 2 additional chairs for plenty of seating for your family. The 55" LED TV with Blu ray player is perfect for family movie night, along with coloring books and board games. It's the ideal setting for gathering your memories made from the day. It also has WiFi, phone and cable. The dining room boasts a solid wood table with 8 seats, and 5 more stools at the kitchen bar. The light and bright kitchen has been fully updated with a chef hood and tile back splash that beckons the coast. There is an appliance pantry that has a microwave oven, electric griddle, portable high chair, and a K Cup coffee maker only to name a few, perfect for all your cooking needs. The kitchen has every gadget and gizmo for all your cooking desires. The Master suite has a gulf view with high end furniture. The king sized foam mattress, foam pillows and coastal decor is very comfortable and relaxing. There is also a 42" TV with Blu-ray player. The master bath features a tiled walk in rain shower. Unlike most all places, we offer a tank-less hot water heater so ALL guest gets a hot shower every time! A hair dryer is available for our guests as well in both bathrooms. The spare bedroom is coastal cool with a queen size bed and plenty of clothes storage. There is a 37" flat screen TV and Blu-ray player if needed as well. The second bathroom is updated with a double sink vanity and another rain shower tub. The 2nd floor offers every kids nautical inspired dream loft! The entertainment room offers a full sized sleeper sofa and oversized comfy chair for watching TV or playing with the included Wii or watching a DVD. The bedroom side of the loft, has 2 bunk beds (4 beds), plus a pull out twin bed comfortably sleeping 5.

Now for that view! Stepping out onto the new huge Trex deck with unobstructed views of the Emerald Coast through the stainless steel wire railing says "Finally!". Pallet table seats 6 comfortably or set on the custom bar for 4. Just 20 steps down the boardwalk you can sink your toes into the white sands of the Gulf.

On the terrace level, we have covered parking for two vehicles, uncovered parking available for more. There is a full laundry room, including a washer and dryer. You will be welcomed to the best part of the terrace with an outdoor living area including a shaded hammock, kettle style Weber grill with lid for those windy summer nights, two picnic tables for your entire party to gather, and plenty of other seating for your awesome adventure to the Cape! There is an amazing hot/cold outdoor shower that is big enough for a small family that we built brand new this year! You may not want to leave the 12" shower head!!

We have a outside secured area which contains 3 kayaks with plenty of life vests, multiple 10'-11' paddle boards, and a large room on the terrace level FULL of items to make your stay here an all inclusive vacation - JUST BRING YOUR CLOTHES AND FOOD, for a very reasonable $500 fee per week. We DO NOT add this to the base price of the rental to help keep the price of our beach house the BEST deal on the Cape, and give you the option to add it for your family. We do pro-rate for shorter stays. IF interested in this option, please ask for us to send you a list of what we can provide for you!

Coastal Cabin is 1/2 of a duplex with shared direct access to the beach. We have an amazing house cleaner that will clean and inspect this home to ensure that it is ready upon your arrival. Up to 9 bed linens and towels will be provided, depending on number of guest. Rolls of paper towels, toilet paper for each bathroom, a dish sponge, dishwasher tablets, bath soap, and shampoo will be supplied as a start for your stay. Adirondack chairs are available to take to the beach if you desire. Check in time for the day of your arrival is 4pm EST, and check out time is 10am EST.

Due to family allergies, No pets are allowed. We are a Sunday to Sunday rental during the peak Summer months. Please ask about monthly rates!

About Shane Gutierrez

We are transplanted Kentucky Wildcats living in Georgia Bulldog country:) We are raising three God fearing beautiful, always busy, children. We always looked forward to our vacations, just to get away from it all. Our family of five has been vacationing at the Cape for over ten years! After vacationing around the Southeast, we decided the Cape was home for us! It has everything we ever wanted in a family vacation and something our kids always looked forward to year after year.

Shane Gutierrez purchased this house in 2015

Why Shane Gutierrez chose Port St. Joe

I can remember the first time I drove the lone street down the middle of Cape San Blas. I was shocked to see a place that looked untouched from the likes of other beaches we had visited prior. When I say we fell in love at first sight, I mean that! No high rises, No looking for the beach between sky scrapers, No crowded beaches, No worrying about where my kids were, just you and the beach. Over the years, a few local flavors have moved in, but the Cape has kept true to it's low key vibe, still making it our go to place to visit. Vacationing at the Coastal Cabin on the Cape, is a vacation that feels like a vacation. A family place to have fun relaxing with the noise of the waves, not cars and parties!

What makes this house unique

We love the bonfires on the beach, such an exciting way to end the day. Our kids love to go shelling in the early morning, always finding something to bring home! St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park is also a must for us, if you go to the bay side, you can walk out several hundred feet, collecting shells and snorkeling!! Don't forget your fishing pole either! The gulf and bay both offer unique fishing opportunities!! The Tradin' Post, our favorite go to, has everything you need as well!

The cottage was GREAT. Have everything we needed. Shane was great and attentive. On the first day of our stay the dryer died and he had one to us the next afternoon!!. So nice to be able to watch our kids play on the beach from the deck while grilling out. The ice cream shop and fresh seafood are a short walk away. The endless hot water tank allowed everyone to have a nice shower at the end of a long day on the beach. Each night we were able to enjoy a fire on the beach while the guy fished. The Toy Box was an added bonus, everything you could ever need to enjoy your day on the beach. If I had to have a down side I would wish for a little more privacy upstairs at the loft. I was able to view the unit next door and I really liked that they had separated the area with a closed in wall. We are definitely coming back!!

Owner's Response: Thanks! We're so glad you enjoyed our home! Glad we got everything fixed so quickly for you. Since it is a kids loft, we like being able to see and hear our little ones. There is a wall separating the two rooms with a pocket door, and closable privacy curtains to below. We love the tankless water heater too and so glad you noticed that convenience! Thanks again!!

Fantastic Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Coastal Cottage for 4 days and loved every minute of it! Our children (teenagers and a 7 year old) had a blast using the kayaks, paddleboards, floats, and everything else offered with the property. It was nice too because they could come and go as needed with regards to eating often. The house is spacious so never felt crowded. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could dream of... and the cottage was so clean and fresh! Definitely one of the best rental experiences we have had!

As advertised

This place was very clean, and well decorated. There was everything

you would need, and well thought out. It is quiet and safe. The beach

is 100 yards away from the deck, and beautiful. It was a great vacation.

Wonderful home in impeccable condition and clean as a whistle. Caring owners and a fab location.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with all aspects of this home and of course the friendly and caring owners was the frosting on the cake so to speak. The information they supply as to what’s in the area and possible places to eat and shop was great.
