'Sandy Footprints' -- Pool heat is included in rates for Spring & Fall thru Thanksgiving

Fantastic home that is well maintained and beautiful! Very popular with lots of repeat guests.

Single Family 4 bd 3 1/2 baths, sleeps 12 total and pets are allowed with prior approval.

Besides the absolute gorgeous pool and views from this home, the owners keep it very well maintained. There is an outdoor kitchen with plenty of seating at the bar and a gas stainless steel grill that Bobby Flay would be proud to use! It also has a built in fridge so you don't have to climb the stairs for that cold drink when relaxing by the pool.

The pool at Sandy Footprints is one of, if not the largest Private Pools for a vacation rental home on Cape San Blas. It's even larger than many of the shared community pools on the Cape. And it is only approx 300 feet from the beach, so you also have quick and easy access to the warm waters and white sand beaches Cape San Blas offers.

There are two large gulf facing covered decks with lots of outdoor furnishings and plentiful parking underneath and beside of the home. Need room to also park your boat? - there is plenty of easy access and turn around parking space

Sandy Footprints is very nicely furnished inside too. Living Room has a large flat HDTV, all bedrooms have TV's, the kitchen is overstocked, and I'm talking everything you need, it is the best stocked kitchen I have ever seen! and the gulf facing dining room combined with the breakfast bar will seat 12 for meals.

The King master bedroom faces the Gulf of Mexico as does another queen bedroom. It also has a 2'nd queen master on the living floor and 4'th bedroom that has 2 full/twin bunk beds

Sandy Footptints is located on a long drive with only 3 other homes, so it also has lots more privacy than most Cape vacation homes offer and is located in the much desired area on the north end of the Cape next to the State Park Entrance.

This beautiful home is owned by a family that rented beach homes for their vacations for many years and they know how important a very nicely furnished and extremely well stocked beach home is to the overall enjoyment of your family's vacation.

Bath & bed linens are provided.

Perfect Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Spring Break at Sandy Footprints. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. I loved the huge kitchen which is well stocked with appliances, pots and pans and cooking utensils. Every room had a TV. The view from the top deck is amazing and the walk to the beach feels much closer than the 260 feet noted in the description. The house is very private and the pool and outdoor kitchen made for a wonderful experience. The pool is warm and well taken care of; in fact, the pool company came mid-week to clean the pool which was an added bonus. We have rented from Terri and Teresa for many years and have never been disappointed. They are so easy to work with and the pricing is always very fair. You can always expect well appointed homes with quality finishes. The towels and linens are always good quality too. I can't say enough great things about this house and our experience. We will defintely stay at Sandy Footprints again - Next time we will bring friends because the house is enormous for 2 adults and 2 kids. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation included our grown children and their families. Twelve people spending a week together was totally awesome. Our youngest grandchild is 2 and the oldest is 20. Many memories were made and will be iremembered forever. The condo was awesome, fully stocked with anything we needed. When we arrived it is in immaculate condition, therefore we left it the same way.

Grandmother takes grands to the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

5 grands and 5 adults=a GRAND time. We left our own Sandyfootprints everywhere!!! But there were none when we arrived. Everything clean and ready for memories when we drove up. So surprised to see all the fun stuff in the pool closet...lots of sand buckets, kites, boogey boards, chairs and floats. Thanks for whoever left them for all to enjoy. What a great pool!!!! little feet could walk underwater on edge completely around the pool. Such a safety feature. Loved the safety key latch on the pool fence....however a little discipline needed to have little boys not crawl over the fence! Bunk beds for kids and TV a great combo. Baby gates and high chair also a big help!!! Walk to beach so easy and close even for 2 year olds. View of beach from upstairs porch great. Just like mentioned...kitchen well stocked. Lots of heavy duty jellyroll pans made baking a pound of bacon a cinch. Big Electric Skillet was great for frying shrimp and making pancakes. Used Weber grill but BIG gas grill by pool and refrig there too. Enjoyed sweet communication from Teresa and staff...always responded timely. Wifi worked well. Yeah....would love to come back:-)

A dream come true

  • 5 of 5

The perfect house in the perfect location.

It is a beautiful, clean, comfortable, well appointed home, equipped with everything you would find in your own house.

The open concept of the kitchen, dining and living areas, along with the high ceilings, give Sandy Footprints a wonderful openness while still feeling homey. You don't have to bring a thing, the huge kitchen has everything, right down to the spices. Several people could prepare food in the kitchen without the usual '”hip checks”.' All of this opens onto a huge deck, wonderful for morning coffee and any meal. We spent a good deal of time on the deck, warm breezes and sunshine from dawn until dusk Being from a northern climate, we realized we gained almost two hours of extra daylight which translated into more time outside.

The bedrooms on the second floor have fabulous views. We could get out of bed, take a few steps and be on another huge deck, sit in the lounge chairs, listen to the surf and take the time to watch the seagulls playing in the wind. While my husband headed out to golf or fish, I set up my easel for painting my landscapes on that deck, there is so much room.

The outdoor kitchen was a bonus for us, the barbecue and sitting area was perfect for lunch after we returned from the beach.

When we wanted to be busy, there was the Shrimp-fest, Eagle seminar, kayaking, the Oyster-fest in Apalachicola, sunset cruises, joining the library book sale, Gumbo-fest in Mexico Beach. We made new friends at the St. Josephs spaghetti dinner fund raiser. Saturdays we went to the market and found gifts and goodies for friends and family. Toured the impressive St. Joseph State Park.

Walking on the clean, white beach everyday, anytime, collecting shell treasures was the best of everything. The warm sand seeping into your sandals, the smell and taste of the Gulf soothing your soul. The quality of our lives is so much better at Sandy Footprints.

As first time Florida travellers, we had no idea what to expect. Teresa's Beach Homes family patiently walked us through the process and took such good care of us. If it wasn't for this fabulous pet friendly

home and wonderful family business, we never would have been able to have this “dream come true” vacation. We would never stay anywhere else, we can't wait to go back next year.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, booking Sand Footprints was incredibly easy. Terri and Teresa kept an excellent line of communication with us from when we booked, to when we were staying there all the way until after we left. After staying there, I can't thank you ladies enough that you share this amazing place with other people. I've never seen a more beautiful place!

We weren't sure what to expect since neither of us had ever heard of Cape San Blas / Port St Joe, but we thought we would try it out. Zero regrets! It is clean, quiet, secluded, beautiful and everyone was incredibly welcoming. It is an EXTREMELY dog friendly area too, which is great!

The home is located well up into the northern region of the Cape San Blas peninsula in Port St Joe. We had the chance to drive up the coast a couple of times and also walk the beach in each direction multiple times. After seeing much of what Cape San Blas has to offer, we agreed 100% we had one of the best locations and houses.

We spent probably 4 nights grilling downstairs in the outdoor kitchen area (amazing), and although we had a couple cool days, we did get a chance to swim in the heated pool a few times too (which almost no other house has a private pool that we saw). Upstairs on the main floor you have a wide open floor plan with the living room and dining area all open to the kitchen. A nice big walkout deck was good to have for hanging out, which we did everyday, and the stairs from the deck that led to the outdoor kitchen and pool were very convenient. The top floor, The master bedroom was perfect size and had another big walkout deck. From the top deck you could watch the sunset and check the water out in the daytime. Great views and a feeling of serenity up there. Honestly, overall, the house was so great it was hard to leave when we were going down to the water. You have great privacy because your neighbors are set up to be in the back of the house towards the water like you are. The only thing I would caution to anyone is to be ready to conquer some stairs. This should be nothing new to anyone who knows beach houses, but we were rookies. :)

If you are looking for shopping and bars, this might not be the best choice. But if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet getaway - you found it. It was a mostly older crowd, but my girlfriend and I loved it (We're in our 30's). Sandy Footprints was a beautiful home and we think we made a great decision booking it. We hope you find it as memorable as we did.
