Best vacation ever!Guest comment entered by manager
Best vacation ever!
Best vacation ever! Enjoyed a week long family reunion/vacation and could not have been more pleased with the house or Cape. The house is absolutely beautiful! Really, it's two separate homes and we used both; my elderly mother, sister and I stayed on the lower level. They both have screened porches, the lower screened porch extends into the screened pool area, morning coffee and afternoon lunches enjoyed there! We had three small dogs with us. They stayed on the outside decks every day and had easy access to the fenced dog yard. Don't plan a trip here if you are looking for goofy-golf, water parks or restaurants on every corner, you won't find them. What you will find is a wonderful, quiet, relaxing place to spend with friends and family. We rented kayaks and explored the bay, also bicycles to enjoy miles of paved trail, and a golf cart to run back and forth to the beach. For amateur fishermen, especially children, fishing off the Private Reserve's dock is action packed! The water is shallow, but don't let that keep you from throwing in a line. During the day, grunts will keep you busy as they bite as soon as your bait hits the water. Sharks and large catfish make night fishing especially exciting. Frozen squid from Scallop Cove or Trading Post seemed to be the best bait. The dock has power but no lights, so bring a couple good battery operated lanterns, they will be all you'll need. Expect to cut hooks from catfish & sharks, their skin is too tough to remove barbed hooks. A pair of wire cutters or needle-nosed pliers with cutters is a necessity. My 87-year-old mother had to be dragged off the dock for meals and bed...she loved it! It certainly didn't spoil our evenings, plenty of screened in porches, pool and dock swing to enjoy. Port St. Joe is about 20 minutes from the house, there you can find some great restaurants (Sunset Coastal Grill!) and a nice Piggly Wiggly. If you need a WalMart, like we did, Panama City is about 45 minutes. Other than Scallop Cove & the Trading Post, there are no shops or stores on the Cape, so stock up before you leave home or make one good run to PC or PSJ when you arrive. Beach access is close by, with restrooms and outdoor showers. the beach and water are pristine and virtually a ghost town when we were there. I could go on and on, such a wonderful house!

We had a lovely time in your home. It was PERFECT! My husband fished in his kayak every morning for speckled trout. This was our first time visiting Cape San Blas and fell in love with the area...we will certainly be returning.

Private Reserve-A perfect home away from home
We rented the Private Reserve property this year for Spring Break. I took my parents, 5 kids, and my girlfiend. THE HOUSE WAS PERFECT!!! We could not have had a better time. The house and property were just wonderful. The boat dock was perfect for my boat and the pool and hot tub were great. We will be renting again and I would suggest this to anyone!! Thank you so much for the amazing home away from home!!!!

About: We are realtors and own and manage Sunset Reflections Vacation Rentals. This has been our personal home and as of March 2012, we are moving to another home and are making this available for rent.
Why Private Homes:
We love the quietness and beauty of Cape San Blas. We love this home for its great floor plan, wonderful amenities and privacy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Having a second kitchen and laundry on the ground level and walk out directly on ground level to pool area, is wonderful. You can drop your wet towels and suits right in the dryer as you step into the house. Poolside beverages are available in the full sized fridge in the porch/pool area. No one can see into the pool area. You are surrounded by eagles and herons. The screened pool area is marvelous - keeps out the bugs and critters. The hot tub is glorious with its awesome views overlooking the bay. Sunrises are spectacular. With an open deck on the western facing side of the house, you can enjoy the sunset colors from the front deck.
