Overview

About the property

2br Beach cottage with wrap around deck with amazing beach views.

Sail Away is located only 50 steps from the gorgeous sands of the Gulf of Mexico and another short walk to the Trading Post, its location is incredible. NEW IN MARCH: NEW MEMORY FOAM MATTRESSES, PILLOWS and BEDDING. NEW PULL OUT COUCH WITH MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS. NEW KITCHEN COOKWARE, ROKU WITH NETFLIX ON 2 TVS. This single level home is accessed by a short flight of exterior stairs making it very convenient for everyone. We have maximized the use of every inch of this small cottage. It is fabulously decorated with great artwork and pops of color and has everything you need to make your stay great. We have thought of everything inside and out with a screened porch, COMPLETELY enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower and a large wraparound deck with picnic table w/ umbrella . There are Adirondack chairs with cushions, ottomans and cup holders to enjoy the ocean view. No matter your location on this large deck, you will have fantastic views. While this property does sleep a total of 6, we would not recommend all adults as space might be tight at maximum capacity. Come for a long weekend, a week or even a month or two. It’s perfect no matter what time of year.

Floor Plan: Living room with pull out couch(Memory foam mattress), flat screen TV, DVD, ROKU with NETFLIX, island dining table, kitchen, full bath, Bedroom 1- Full memory foam mattress on bottom and twin bunk bed, TV/DVD, X-BOX W/GAMES, cable TV and laundry room; and Bedroom 2 – queen memory foam bed, TV/ Roku with NETFLIX and DVD. There is also access onto a screen porch with bistro table for 2 which opens onto the wraparound deck.

The kitchen is set up with everything you could possibly need and then some. Extra seating with a picnic table on the wrap around deck and more seating on another deck below. Stroll along the wooden boardwalks or lounge in the grass.

About Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner

My husband and I were looking for a place to go on a nice quite beach vacation with our then 3 & 2yr old children. We saw Cape San Blas on Google maps and decided to go there, we fell in love instantly. We have been going back for a few years now and can not think of a better place to spend time with our family. It is the most peaceful and gorgeous place we have ever been. Every person that we have met there and ones that we have sent there since, have been back numerous times. The beaches are beautiful, sugar fine sand, blue-green water, amazing sunsets.

Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Melanie & Paul Kastner/Owner chose Port St. Joe

When we finally decided to buy a house in Cape San Blas, Sail Away was our first choice. The cottage charm of this house can not be resisted. Being that it is only 180 steps from the water, maybe 50 steps to the sand, it is ideal for adults and children alike. The wrap around deck has a nonslip finish to make it completely safe for children that have just come out of the outdoor shower.

What makes this cottage unique

You will fall in love with this cottage from the anti slip finish on the wrap-a-round decking & the outdoor shower to the cheery Caribbean colors inside. The fully equipped NEW kitchen has everything you could possible need. The screened in porch has great views and faces the beach so you get that wonderful breeze off of the water. Gulf views from almost every part of the deck. Lets not forget that it is only 50 STEPS from the beach. That's less then a 30 SECOND walk!!! We are only a few hundred feet from the 'Tradin Post' to pick up last minute groceries, beach accessories or pizza and wings. They pretty much have everything you could need, which saves you from having to drive into Port St. Joe. Nationwide calling to anywhere in the 50 United States, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands and to all of Canada so you can keep in touch with family.(cell service is not great in Cape San Blas)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful. Swimming in the sea, watching dolphins, linedancing. It was Paradise. We really enjoyed our time here and will remember it for the rest of our lives.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

A cute and very well priced cottage in a fantastic location on the Cape! Perfect for a couple. We’ve been coming to Cape San Blas for over 20 years. Had the best time.

Did not meet my expectations

  • 3 of 5

The cottage did not look like the pictures. Sheets were thin I wish I had brought my own.

Both screen doors were broken on the front and on the back of cottage. Locks were not in good condition had to meet a lock smith one morning to be able to lock cottage. Loved the area, the beach was great but cottage need work done. Did not meet my expectations at all.:(

Owner's Response: I am very sorry about the locks, I wish I had know earlier about them and we would have had them fixed immediately. I know it was inconvenient to meet with the locksmith and I apologize for that. We tried our best to make things better. I have a repair man there as we speak redoing the wrap around deck, fixing the screened doors, replacing locks. I hope you enjoyed your time at the beach at least. The only difference in the pictures is that there is a new couch, new bedding and the living room rug is gone. I hope you give us another chance.

Cute beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so cute and was absolutely perfect. Tons of storage space all over but especially in the bathroom- sooooo nice to have a place to toiletries! Well stocked kitchen. Good Wi-Fi. Great access to beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Jessica, I couldn't agree more with you, storage in the bathroom is a must! Because it is a small cottage, I wanted to maximize the storage where ever I could. Come back and stay anytime.

Charming beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot for my husband and I to vacation. Even though this cottage is small, (it is a cottage after all) it was the perfect size for just the two of us. I found everything I needed in the kitchen to cook simple meals during our stay. The walk to the beach was not far at all, and the beach was beautiful. When the evenings were cooler, we sat out on the deck, and enjoyed the views.

Cape san blas beach
Car: recommended

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was America's #1-Beach, in 2002. Scalloping in the St. Joseph Bay is amazing!

Cape San Blas, located at the southernmost tip of Florida's Great Northwest, is home to the #1 beach in the continental United States!What's so special about Cape San Blas?•No amusement parks or hi-rise condos

•No cell phones, pagers, or alarm clocks

•Almost no cars......very few people

It's what you don't have (or want) that makes this place special. Cape San Blas is a get-away...away from the noise...away from the crowds...away from the busy schedules, the telephones, the responsibilities. After a week of enjoying the simplest of pleasures, it's hard to go home.
