                        This is one of the nicest Gulf beach rentals I've ever seen. Suitable for a crowd without feeling crowded. Separate apartment allows for privacy when desired. Spacious, comfortable and tastefully furnished and decorated. Natural setting provides backdrop for relaxing vacation.

                        My husband and I were married at Mimi's Sandcastle in March of 2012. (I know this review is a little late, but I am reminiscing a little tonight.) We had the most wonderful experience at this beach home. I graduated from high school at Port St. Joe High School, and moved to North Dakota shortly after to be with my boyfriend (husband now.) We he proposed, we decided to have a destination wedding on Cape San Blas. We had a group of 14 people that would be staying together. I couldn't think of a better place than Mimi's Sandcastle. The beach was amazing, and the gazebo was PERFECT for our wedding photos. Best. Place. Ever. Don't hesitate to book your stay!!

                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, girls getaway, adventure seekers, families with teenagers, families with young children, age 55+, people with disabilities, sightseeing.

                        Owner response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm glad you've had good times reminiscing, and hope you'll come back again soon.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I love grilling up a mess of shrimp and mullet at sunset! Especially after a day of kayaking or horseback riding on the beach. I never seem to have enough shrimp, though, no matter how much I overestimate. Marinate them in Jamaican Jerk sauce and there won't be a single one left, I promise!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We chose Cape San Blas for our vacation home because it reminded us so much of how 'old Florida' used to look 50 years ago all up and down the panhandle. I grew up in Pensacola and have enjoyed the Gulf Coast all my life, and this is one of the few areas that hasn't been completely overrun by condos. It still has that certain feel of peaceful family togetherness that you can really only get when you're away from it all.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Some of the benefits of staying at Mimi's Sandcastle include: * Gorgeous, wide open beaches without the crowds. No condos = fewer people. * 10 minute drive to a REAL oyster bar (The Indian Pass Raw Bar), where you can take your catch and grill it on the outdoor pit while enjoying your favorite beverage and getting to know the locals. Or, go inside and order up a dozen raw, steamed, baked, however you like 'em! * We're directly on the beach, with boardwalk access from the top deck, which provides easy access to the beach for everyone, including small children and those who use a wheelchair.
