  • Fantastic Getaway

    "My wife and I spent the month of November 2014 in this vacation rental. This was a much needed trip as my wife is a cancer patient. The quiet surroundings and the beautiful Gulf view was exactly what we needed at the time. The local people were so nice and we were close to some very good eating establishments. Enjoyed the walks on the beach and shelling. Got in lots of surf fishing although I didn't catch much. Members of my family and a few friends visited us while we were there. My three grandaughters were there at Thanksgiving and I treated them to a horseback ride on the beach. Had the privilege of meeting the owners Gary and Kelly Mills at Thanksgiving and they were a joy to meet. If my wife's health will hold up we would certainly like to return there again somewhere down the road. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing to visit the Cape San Blas area."

  • Our Happy Place

    "My husband and I spent a week at the Dolphins Dance condo the end of October. Cathy was great to work with. She responded to our request in a short time. We loved our stay in the condo and on Cape San Blas. It was our first time there and will not be our last. We love Barrier Dunes and the Cape. The condo was immaculate, well-stocked with everything you need to cook, and the sunsets were beautiful. There wasn't anything or anywhere we went that we didn't like. The walks on the beach were so relaxing, the restaurants in the surrounding areas were so good, and our walk in the bay was amazing. We loved it all. I would love to spend most of my free time there. We found lots of shells for us and the grandkids. We loved being able to walk on a quiet beach and seeing all the driftwood in the bay. One of our favorite things was feeding the turtles in the pond from the back deck. They would come up on the bank of the pond and stay in the pond to eat. One morning we counted 17 turtles. One day we were blessed to have a Great Blue Heron fly to one of the pine branches, about 6 feet from the deck. Cape San Blas is such a wonderful place to visit. Can't wait to get back again. Thanks again, Cathy, for supplying us with all the things needed to have a most amazing trip."

  • Have been searching for a place I would return to again and again. I have found my place in Florida!

    "The Sentell place was MOST accommodating AND CLEAN! The bed in the master bedroom is more comfy than my own...and my mattress is very expensive. The bathrooms were all very nice sized and the towels were plush! The floors were clean throughout the condo and that is my fetish. Nice kitchenware and many extras were included that you don't get at other places. Definitely a keeper! We saw dolphin pods and dolphins jumping up out of the water like some performances at places. This was my first time experiencing this and it was AMAZING! I know that part is up to Mother Nature but WOW!!! The weather was only so-so but we were just fine in our home away from home. I thank the Sentells for allowing us in their home. May many Blessings come upon you... Jules"

  • Lovely, Comfortable Home Away from Home

    "We had a wonderful time in Florida . This unit is large and exactingly as described . It was a pleasure coming back to every night after our fun filled day on the beach or at the many pools available to us. We had coffee every morning on the large balcony over looking the bay watching the sunrise and the dolphin play. The rooms were bright and cheery and the beds were great, very comfy, everyone slept well which is unusual sleeping away from home. The added bonus of having the beach chairs and umbrella waiting for you on the beach was fantastic. And to top it all off it was so easy working with these owners . They kept me informed and answered any questions I had in a timely friendly manner. It was a Pleasure doing business with them and we are glad they opened their home to us."

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.

Panhandle Opry: To get a taste of some good ol’ fashioned country western music, check out the Panhandle Opry on the first and third Saturday of each month. A collection of musical artists gets together to put on a traditional show for visitors who love the genre.

Pensacola Museum of Art: Situated in Pensacola’s historic Old City Jail Building, this public institution encourages creativity in visual arts with 18 annual exhibitions, workshops, lectures and films.

Best Beaches of Northwest Florida

Santa Rosa Beach: Santa Rosa Beach was founded in 1910 and was the start of South Walton as its known today. Surrounding this sandy area are luxurious beach houses, a unique artist colony and plenty of upscale dining. Follow up a day of sun and surf with an elegant evening out, complete with fine dining and plenty of culture.

Pensacola Beach: Famously known for pearly white sand and stunningly green waters, Pensacola Beach is certainly one to put on the must-see list. There are endless opportunities for both fun and relaxation here. Stroll down Pensacola Beach Pier or set up your rod for a morning of fishing. Stake your claim on the beach itself for some quality time with loved ones in the sun before grabbing a lunch of fresh seafood at a nearby eatery.

Topsail Hill State Preserve: At Topsail Hill you’ll find amazing natural features, including 3.2 miles of secluded sandy beaches and dunes rising more than 25 feet tall. The state preserve offers and excellent location for an afternoon of fishing off the shore or hiking through the trees while on the lookout for local birds. Of course, there’s the beach itself, where you can soak up some rays, build an epic sand castle or have a swimming race.
