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)

Cozy, Super-Efficient Cottage!
Cozy cottage but super-efficient! Loved the hooks in the bathroom so our towels could dry. Nice to have access to Netflix! Sitting on the deck and in the screened in back porch was very relaxing. The beach was very nearby, but unfortunately had suffered a washout, so we found a spot just down the road with sand and picnic tables. Cape San Blas is a very nice area. Thanks for the wonderful place to stay for our visit!!
A cozy delight with character and charm.
Spent a week here in late February and loved it! Well-maintained cottage lacked nothing; cleverly organized to make the most of small spaces. Perfect for 2 or 3. Great deck for relaxing in the sun and nice screened porch for morning coffee. Short stroll to well-stocked convenience/grocery store, donut stand, ice cream vendor, and seafood market. White sandy beach just steps away. Loved the peaceful location and quiet neighbors. Waves to lull you to sleep at night. What more could you want? Would definitely go back.
Sail Away Beach Cottage
The Sail Away Beach Cottage is just as described. It is adorable and very compact. I give Melanie and Paul props on their use of space!
We didn't really need a lot of living space since we spent most of our time out doors. The deck and screened in back porch were two or our favorite places to stay. We would highly recommend staying here again. This cottage is perfectly located near the beach and the only store in town!
Charming, bright, clean, as advertised. Well located. Beautiful beach. Had a wonderful stay.
Great place and location.
Great place and nice location on Cape San Blas. New deck has a nice view !
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.
Thank you so much for choosing us to stay with Betsy and I am glad you had a great time.
You are welcome back any time.
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.
