John rehabs property and is a property investor and Dawn is a full time realtor. . We have spent 2 months transforming this home into a premier rental property and hope you enjoy the results of our labor.

Dawn Lounsbury purchased this house in 2011

Why Dawn Lounsbury chose Florida Main North West

We have another vaction rental on the cape and saw an opportunity with this home and just fell in love with the potential and decided to invest, get to work, and create a beautiful spot for you to visit.

What makes this house unique

you will enjoy a peaceful setting with no close neighbors to the north to allow more privacy for you stay. We love the poximity to the BP for a quick Diet Coke or Ice Cream

Most expensive I've rented but not the nicest

  • 3 of 5

Great view! Close to the beach. For the price I paid I was disappointed in the deck furniture, the master bedroom mattress, thread bare towels. FYI if you bring a boat you'll have to back in off the busy main road because of the decorative posts. Also the beach is quite narrow in this area.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry your vacation was not all that you expected. Regarding towels, if you had called we would have immediately brought you new towels, we have inventoried the towels and have retired a few towels and replaced. Our towels are all from Kohls "The big One towel" The beach is narrow on most of the north cape do to beach erosion and beach restoration will begin in December. New Deck furniture is on order and will be delivered this week. The mattress is about 2 years old, I'm sorry it did not sleep to your satisfaction. The driveway is a double wide drive and yes you do enter it off Cape San Blas Rd. Many guest park boats in this driveway.

Enjoyed the ease of beach access, nice house with plenty of amenities. Plenty of storage and area under the house to store beach gear. Absolutely will stay here again.

Cape Daze

  • 4 of 5

The property was excellent, everything was as expected; an amazing time was had by all. The only complaint were the bugs (no see ums), we all had nasty bites for two week after our vacation.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved Cape Daze, it is a lovely gulf front home with amazing views. I'm sorry the noseeums left you itchy there are a number of bug sprays that do help and depending on the breeze often times they are not a problem. I hope the bites won't keep you away next time. Thanks for choosing Cape Daze. Dawn & John

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at Cape Daze. The house was perfect for our family of 7. Well equipped, very clean and comfortable. My son had an item delivered a day earlier than requested. Mary made a special trip to deliver it to us without even requesting it. It was very much appreciated. Dawn and John are great to work with also. They proactively called us about a problem with the ice maker to see if it was working. When it wasn't, they had a new one installed. So, not only is the home wonderful, the beach is awesome and the owners and staff are so great to work with. Thank you! We definitely want to stay in this beach house again!

Great stay, perfect spot on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Cape Daze. This was our first time on Cape San Blas, and we loved it. Much less developed than the area we had been going west of Panama City. House was great, kitchen had pretty much everything we needed (only thing we didn't find were muffin tins, but I don't really expect them). Owners we very easy to work with. There was some construction right next door, but it didn't interfere with our stay. Easy walk to the general store and rented bikes there too. The master balcony is fantastic, just sit out there and watch the dolphins in the morning with your cup of coffee! I'm ready to go back.

amazing house ! afraid to tell everyone as when I want to return it might be booked!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful. We had an amazing time for New Years and enjoyed the area as the Cape is amazing. Beds were great, view was amazing, house had everything you needed for the beach, chairs, gates for the stairs, can't wait to go again. So you know this is a real stay review I do have to complain about one thing, the spatala's were difficult to use when cooking and make sure you bring your spices as the house has none! Wonderful stay, wonderful family time, got to run, relax, and let the dogs play....... Thank you for the wonderful time..... you will not be disappointed as the pictures are accurate...
