Private Homes cottage description
Whether you love sunning and swimming at the beach or fishing and boating on the bay you'll find the best of both worlds in Cape San Blas. The beach has been voted number one beach in America numerous times and St. Joseph's Bay is know to be one of the top fishing destinations as well. Our house, Sundance Cottage, happens to be right in the middle of both.
Nestled in the sand dunes of Cape San Blas, it is about 250 yards to the deeded accesses of both the beach and the bay. Sunbathers will enjoy the outdoor shower and bathroom after a day on the beach and fishermen will find the fish cleaning station a handy addition after a successful day of fishing. With ample parking underneath the house there is plenty of room to bring your boat or waverunners which can be launched at St. Joseph's State Park, just 2/10 of a mile from the house.
With three bedrooms and three baths (one is outside but the shower and toilet are enclosed), the house will comfortably sleep six people. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, cable TV, private bath, and French doors which lead onto the back deck that overlooks the dunes. There are no other homes behind ours so it is very private on the back deck. The other two bedrooms each have queen-size beds and share the full bath conveniently located in the hall. One of the queen bedrooms has cable TV as well.
Everyone will enjoy watching the 36' TV in the large, comfortable sofas and chairs. You may choose from our selection of movies or bring your favorite VHS tapes, DVD's and CD's to enjoy the entertainment center complete with cable TV, VCR, DVD, and CD player. Bring you laptop and get online with our broadband, wireless, high speed internet connection.
Since Cape San Blas is not known for restaurants and night life we keep the kitchen well stocked with plenty of cookware and utensils and the pantry stocked with spices and staples so you'll be able to cook your fresh catch of the day on the large stainless steel grill on the deck. There is also plenty of deck furniture for outdoor dining as well.
So if you're looking for a place that's somewhat off the beaten path you have found it here. Uncrowded beaches, endless shelling, fantastic fishing, or just boating around the bay are just a few of the things to do. Rent a bike and ride for miles, rent a kayak and ride the waves, or just enjoy the beautiful, serene enviornment with your friends and family. Cape San Blas is not just the 'forgotten coast'...it is also an undiscovered Paradise.

Blast at the Blas!!! Kayak fishing
Blast at the Blas!!! Kayak fishing
Thank you Karen for a great time in CSB. We had a great time fishing in the surf and kayak fishing at the nearby state park both a short walk and short drive from your location. The ample parking allowed us to park our two kayak trailers right under the house. The house was very clean and obviously well maintained by the owners. We drove over to Indian Pass for a day of fishing and it was a short drive also. We arrived ahead of a cold front that put a damper on the bite but we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the accomodations were top notch! We recommend staying at their house for your trip to CSB.

This home was conveniently located to the park marina for bay access for our boat and to the beach across the way from the house, within walking distance. The owners were very nice and made the rental transaction easy and convenient. This home was furnished with very comfortable furnishings and had everything we needed to cook almost anything. The fish cleaning station was a great addition for cleaning our daily catch and we had plenty of parking for our boat. This home made our vacation from Atlanta a great success. One of the most memorable days of our trip was a short drive across the bay to the Port St Joe Marina to eat at the marina restaurant and cafe. The last day we were there we enjoyed watching the porpoises play around our boat in Appalachicola Bay during sunset. This home will be added to our list of vacation homes to frequent in the future. Thank you to the owners for opening your home to us and making our getaway a wonderful vacation.

Owner response: One of the best features about Sundance Cottage is its close proximity to the state park boat launch which makes it very convenient for our guests that bring their boat. The park allows you to dock your boat during the day so if you like to fish early mornings and late afternoons you can leave it docked during the middle of the day and return later to fish or just take a sunset cruise. Plus our driveway is as wide as our house so there's plenty of room for your boat and cars too. Some boats can even be pulled up underneath the house depending on the size. Our beach access is excellent as the beach is very wide and mostly unpopulated as there are no condos or townhomes...only private homes. Our bay access provides an excellent place for fishermen who enjoy wading the grass beds or even launching a kayak or canoe. We also like to leave extras in our kitchen such as spices and basics that you normally don't find in a rental. It's a very comfortable home in a beautifully peaceful setting.

It was worth the long drive to reach this amazing part of the Florida coastline,sublime empty beaches, powder white sand a few minutes walk from this house. No over development here just the place to relax and enjoy the peace. The house provided everything needed and was in a very quiet street, the local shop, 'Trading Post' provided everything to keep you topped up. Coneheads cafe is excellent for lunch. Thank you Karen for making the booking process so easy and for letting us rent your lovely house.

Owner response: The Cape can't be beat for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. Sundance Cottage is conveniently located next to the state park and right around the corner from Conehead's. Our beach access is excellent...wide, beautiful and unpopulated. What more can you ask for?

About the owner: My husband and I share ownership of this home with his brother and wife. We all own and run several businesses in Northeast Alabama including scaffold manufacturing, manufacturing skid steer attachments as well as equipment rental stores. In addition to using the home ourselves we allow our employees to vacation there and sometimes entertain customers there.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We first visited the area several years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. We've always vacationed in the panhandle...mostly Destin and it reminds us of what Destin used to be like when we were kids. We like the laid back atmosphere, uncrowded beaches, excellent fishing and peace and quiet.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our home is only 2/10 of a mile from the entrance to St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park so if you bring a boat you are very close to the boat launch there. Additionally we have an excellent deeded beach access with only private homes there so the beach is never crowded. Our deeded bay access is great for fishing the grass flats for speckled trout and redfish. There are no homes behind ours...just sand dunes with trails for exploring. We frequently see deer right in our back yard.
