Guestbook comments from the owner

The weather was great. We took long beach walks, shopped in Apalachacola, ate lunch at the Grill. Cooked on the grill, lazed in the sun. We saw & discovered peach & quiet, great seafood, loads of shells & driftwood, and nice folks. We watched the sunset from the beach every day. Took beach photos at sunrise, watched crashing pelican's and many many dolphin right by the shore. We had a great time doing almost nothing, which was our goal. Great locals, awesome seafood, quiet. We can't wait to do it again.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! Very spacious and comfy. Walk to the beach is very easy and the cart they have makes it real easy to get everything down to the beach. The neighbors we interacted with were very friendly. The kitchen was well stocked with any utensils you could need. We can't wait to come back again!

This was my second trip to the area of Cape San Blas, Port St Joe and Mexico Beach but I stayed at the Mainstays. That was nice but staying at the Pelicans Nest was fantastic! This was my husbands first trip to area and my 8 yr old German Shepherd Husky mixes first time to the beach and he absolutely loved the ocean. The house was perfect for what we needed, somewhere our dog (and we)would feel comfortable if we left him alone for a little while. The house was stocked with everything we could have needed, clean and inviting. Short walk to the beach, I will say the only thing I don't care for is people can drive their vehicles on the beach but that's not the Ayers' fault. It just scares my dog so I don't like it. 🙂 But it's a wonderful place to stay and definitely will stay again in the future.

Fabulous, everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property, it was wonderful. We enjoyed our stay so much. Everything we needed was provided and more. I would highly recommend this property. We were so comfortable there and so was our little dog. The beds are very comfortable as were the pillows. The beach chairs and cart really came in handy. We had such a great time fishing, shelling and playing in the gulf. Everyone we met was so friendly. We watched dolphins nearly everyday, it was a real treat. We will definitely be back! We are already planning our trip for next year and hope we can stay at this property in 2017. Thanks to Ayers for answering all our questions and making this trip effortless for us. The cape is marvellous. The beach was never crowded and we really appreciate that! Thanks again. We have wonderful memories and we hope there will be many more.

Good deal, exactly as described

  • 4 of 5

I just spent spring break at this property with my family. There is plenty of room for 4 to 6 people. The home was actually larger than it appears in the pictures. The home was stocked with everything you need - beach toys, grill, kitchen items, etc. The owner reached out at check in time to make sure we had what we needed, that was a nice touch. It was an easy walk to the beach, 2 minutes to the boardwalk. This part of the Cape is quieter and we loved that! Lots of room to run around and spread out on the beach. I would recommend it and would consider staying again.

Pelican's Nest

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to the Pelican's Nest and we will be back again. It is always clean, well furnished, has comfortable beds and we love the new sofa! Of all the places we have stayed in the area, this is the only one that we keep coming back to. Erin is a joy to deal with and she has done a beautiful job of decorating the home. Everything you need for your stay is there plus a lot of extras that they share. The beach is about a 2 minute walk from the house with a nice boardwalk. The dogs love the beach and enjoy their stay there as well. We are glad that we don't have to keep looking for places to stay now that we have found this jewel.

Quiet Weekend at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We went to the Cape to celebrate our birthdays. We actually stayed in this property 20 years ago when it was owned by another couple. The property has been renovated and the results are amazing. The property is the personal beach home of Kenny and Erin and is furnished very nicely.

There are many positives with this property. It is on the gulf side of Cape San Blas Road. There is a gulf view from the living room and deck. The rent is very reasonable. It is dog friendly. It is just across the road from the Loggerhead Bike and Pedestrian Trail. It is well equipped, but we typically bring some of the basic items that are needed anyway. It is not a crowded development. There are 18 homes in the development. We were the only people in this development for much of our stay.

When we arrived the cable and internet didn't work. We got the internet working that night. The cable was back on in the morning. The problem for the cable was a modem that was not plugged in correctly. The maintenance man Glenn was quick to respond and come to the property.

The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. There is plenty of room to park vehicles, boats, etc.

Kenny and Erin were great. We even were able to leave a little later on Sunday which was nice. The weather was great. We plan to book this property again in 2016 for another stay.
