"It was a great experience staying in this home right on the bay. It was a beautiful view of the bay! The kayaks were really a plus to have and the dock with a long peer was accommodating for the boat. The beach was about a short walk through an easy to walk trail and beautiful dunes to look at. Tink was very kind and hospitable from the time that we booked to the time that we checked in making sure that everything was ok and answering questions about the area. Everything was very clean and we enjoyed lots of good times on the deck and eating meals at the house. The beach is gorgeous, about a 5 to 7 minute walk from the house, across the street which was great! The home is a home with a very welcoming feeling and my dogs enjoyed the back yard and being right on the bay, as it is shallow enough for them to get in and play. The outdoor hose/sprayer was convenient for hosing down the sand and grime after playing in the sand and water. I would recommend this house to people who want to relax or people who want to be on the go, there is lots to do outdoors, truly a great place on earth."

"Me and my husband had a great time, great location, met the best neighbours. The house was clean, cozy, and the best part is it's located right on the beach with its own grilling area, and it's right by the trading post and not far from the state park. We loved it and are looking forward to be booking this place again next year"

"If you want a place to just unwind, Congo Bongo is the place. The accommodations are excellent. It is conveniently located to Indian Pass and Cape San Blas. It's not beach front, but beautiful beaches are a 10 minute drive. Apalachicola and Port St Joe are both about 20 minute rides away. Loads of good restaurants in both directions. My family can't wait to go back."

Relaxing, Remote, & Reasonable! The best vacation!
"You can stop looking...this is the BEST vacation spot on Cape San Blas!
From the FIRST email (which was answered immediately), I knew this vacation home was perfect! It was clearly described(no surprises) and more than met our expectations. The COMMUNICATION with the proprietor was amazing! The house is comfortable and perfect whether you are interested in the beach, bay, or just relaxing. I recommend this place to anyone who seeks a calm, no "tourist trap" getaway. I could go on and on but the place speaks for itself. This IS THE REAL DEAL! We stayed for 2 weeks for a "kidney-cation"(my husbands 1 year kidney transplant anniversary). We brought our 4 year old and it was safe(locks, gates, etc...) there was nothing that the owners hadn't considered. Daily, we "beached" from 10-2, napped 2-4, played in the bay from 5-7, had dinner 7:30, & then went back to witness the most AMAZING SUNSETS at 8:30-45. The locals as well as visitors were so nice and we felt as though we lived there! The beach was family friendly and NOT overly crowded. Thank you so much for the MUCH NEEDED time away. We look forward to visiting again soon!"
