Beautiful home & location, awesome rental company

  • 5 of 5

McCosh is hands-down the nicest home we've rented. Beautifully decorated, well-stocked kitchen, the owners spared no expense with the appliances, furnishings, and decor. Tile and granite everywhere. Views are amazing, and the deck furniture is awesome. The location is quiet, and the house has a private marked walkway to the beach (we had no issues with anyone else using the walkway). The community pools are well-maintained and beautiful. The location on the beach is low-density, and although all the homes around us were rented the beach was uncrowded and serene. This is definitely the place to go to get away from it all!

We've been to Cape San Blas many times and love it there. This is our first time staying in McCosh Beach and we hope to go back. It was a great house with all that our family of 5 needed to have a fantastic week. We usually stay further down on The Cape, but really liked the location of this house. Even being there the week of July 4th the beach was not near as crowded as some other spots that we walked by during our daily treks down the beach. Plus, having the Scallop Cove within walking distance was really nice - we were able to walk over for the occasional needed item or an ice cream cone. One caution - there are a LOT of steps between the entrance and the main living area of this house.

Owner's Response: Hi Jeannie, Thanks for the review, I rather like this house on Sat when we do our turns, it only has 2 floors instead of 3! There are 19 steps to the bedroom floor and another 17 to get to the living floor. There is a 1/2 bath downstairs in the entry for coming in from the beach so you do not have to go up, nice!

Exactly what I wanted...

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to Cape San Blas before and it was exactly what I was looking for. I really wanted to rent a beach house at a place that wasn't crowded with condos and strip malls and that is certainly the case here. The house itself is well-furnished and I can't think of anything that we were lacking. Furthermore, it was very clean. Really enjoyed sitting in the chairs on the upper deck and watching the sunsets. The beach itself was not overly crowded and we spent multiple days simply relaxing there. The outdoor shower is a great touch that keeps you from tracking beach sand into the house. We cooked ourselves most of the week but we had very good meals at the Sandy Bucket and Provisions (in PSJ). We also ate at Coneheads during the Tropical Storm which was an experience (food was good, roofing not so much). Bottom line, my family had a very good time and our guests loved it. As for the arrangements with Teresa both in booking the property and then on arrival, it was easy. Would definitely recommend and will likely book again.

Owner's Response: Bob, Thank you for your wonderful review! I'm glad you had a great week despite it starting off with the TS. I am so glad that your family enjoyed McCosh. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. -Terri

Very nice time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here. Teresa was wonderful to work with. I called and let her know what I was looking for and she delivered. This place was perfect. I've been coming to the Cape since I was a teenager. It has changed some. Keep it like it is, please! Love that we can still find a place for families and not be so over crowded. Only thing I didn't like was the steps are tiled. Coming in with wet feet from the beach or pool. I have twin four year old boys and this was a concern for me. May not be for others. Other than that there were no complaints. My husband caught lots of fish and even a baby shark while fishing. We will be back! Thank you again, Teresa for sharing this lovely home with our family!

Owner's Response: Keri, I'm happy to hear you all had a wonderful vacation and had good luck fishing! The stairs are hard to get used to, but I find once I get to the upper deck it's well worth the climb for the view. I hope to hear from you in the future! -Terri

perfect week even with some rain

  • 5 of 5

McCosh is an excellent property. It is very thoughtfully designed and furnished. Clean and well-appointed, very nice kitchen with an ample stock of dishes and cooking utensils. The views are amazing. We really lucked out as houses on either side for at least 2 down on either side were not occupied. The 3 houses on the other side of the pool area were also empty. Sometimes we felt as if we had a private beach. The boardwalk to the beach is new and in good condition. The house has a charcoal grill and the store room has chairs and toys, although I understand these can change. We made good use of the outside hose and shower to wash our beach shoes and dog leash. Like the entry way bench as a place to leave the dog leash and beach sandals. The bedrooms are on the second floor. King bed in master BR is very comfortable. Good closet and dresser space. Master bath and hallway bath are all new and very functional. On the way up to the living room/kitchen level is a small deck facing the community pool and the bay. The main level is one of the best I have stayed at. Very open, comfortable, and tastefully done. My husband took a liking to the red lantern! Love the windows facing the Gulf and also windows in kitchen and over open stairs that face the Bay. I found the high captain chairs on the decks a treat, since I could see over the railings! Has a powder room on this main level. The internet and cell phone service work well, which is not always the case on CSB. Great spot on the beach for watching the daily dolphin parade. They came so close to the beach!

We ate at Sandy Bucket twice and at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Great shrimp at both. Wonderful quality BBQ at Sandy Bucket, better quality meat than at my favorite BBQ places in Birmingham. Live music at the Raw Bar. Just a fun place, even in the rain. The Trading Post has everything you need and the Hunt Brothers pizzas are actually a good thin crust pizza. Visit the State Park for sure. The shops on Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe are fun to go through. Theresa has a very nice book in house that describes restaurants and things to do in the area. There are also magazines, crossword puzzle books, and some games. There are multiple TVs (although we only turned it on once). Seems the cable channels differ on each of the TVs, so this was a little confusing, but we found what we wanted to watch.

This is one of my very favorite places to stay. Theresa was easy and pleasant to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very detailed and helpful reviews. Wow! It sounds like you all had a fantastic vacation at McCosh. We try our best to provide comfortable, clean, and well maintained and stocked homes. I have also always enjoyed that lantern! I appreciate your comments our our binders as those took me personally a lot of time to put together and update. I'm very curious about the cable channels now though as that's very strange. I also enjoyed your comments on the restaurants around the area. I know your review will help many people find that McCosh and Cape San Blas are the right choices for their families. Thank you! -Terri

Very Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

This was probably the cleanest and well decorated property we've ever rented on VRBO. My wife, the dog, and I really enjoyed McCosh. It was our second time to CSB so we knew the pros and cons of the area. There isn't much to do on CSB which forces you to enjoy the beautiful beach and relax to the sound of the ocean. The only bar/restaurant on CSB is ConeHeads. During our visit they were closed for renovations. Who renovates at the peak of spring break? This property is a short walk to Scallop Cove, a convenience store/gas station. That's also where you can rent darn near anything you didn't bring i.e bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and so much more. You will want to do your grocery shopping in Port St. Joe at the Piggly Wiggly. While the house is stocked with all of the utensils, dishes, and small appliances there are no spices, tin foil, paper plates, storage baggies etc. Our rental company did a good job of letting you know what to bring. If you forget something or you are not in the mood for what you bought, you can buy many grocery items at the Trading Post or scallop cove. Both have a surprisingly broad selection and the prices are really not that bad. I would caution people/pets who are not able to do stairs about this house. The kitchen and main living area are on the top floor and there are A LOT of stairs. At age 50 our calf and thigh muscles got a work out. The reward for doing all of the stairs is you get incredible views from every room in the house. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Joe, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at McCosh! We do try to provide people with well maintained and decorated homes and are glad that you appreciate the same. I also enjoy the personal notes about other businesses in the area as people are always curious about such things. We hope you come back and visit for another stair climb and incredible views. Thank you! -Terri
