About the property

Bayside Cottage on Cape San Blas with Gulf Access.

Overlooking the St. Joseph Bay on serene Cape San Blas. Wake up to spectacular sunrises and stroll the beach for stunning sunsets. Enjoy a quiet, romantic dinner on your screened porch or open deck, serving freshly caught fish or scallops. Kayak or canoe the waters of the Bay, hike in the State Park, walk the beach, or just relax and read a book - Cape San Blas has it all. This cottage is one of 6. If you have a large party, let us know and we can check other rentals for you. There is a pier outside your door and parking for 2 cars and a boat trailer(20 ft. or less) at the cottage. The public boat ramp is a short distance away. There is boardwalk access to the beach for relaxing in the sun or watching the porpoises as they play in the surf. The fishing is great in the area. Up to two dogs allowed with the total weight not to exceed 70 pounds. Pet fee required.

Beds: 2 queens

Situated on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay, surrounded by miles of protected habitat, white sandy beaches (voted the best beach in the US in 2002 by Dr. Beach), and emerald green waters, Cape San Blas looks like a curled finger of land jutting into the water and provides the protective barrier that keeps our surf so quiet and gentle. There are several parks and historic sites. It's not unusual to spot deer, fox, soaring eagles, osprey, sea turtles, or even a family of black bears. St. Joseph State Park is a 2500 acre wildlife refuge offering ten miles of uninhabited beach and bay shores and a boat ramp.

Great place except for the neighbor's barking dogs

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was perfect for us. Clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Being located on St. Joseph Bay and a short walk to the Gulf was awesome. Vince was great to work with. It was very quiet until our last 2 nights. Folks moved into Cottage 2 & 5 and had dogs. Every time we went out on the porch or deck the dogs barked at us. Had it not been for the dogs, the place deserved 5 stars.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the view from the screened porch! This location was perfect with the grassy area for our puppy, and the beach and bay were in walking distance. You can watch the sunrise from the couch or porch, and it was absolutely beautiful. The house was very clean and had everything that we could want. We will definitely be back!

This cabin was a great rental on the Cape. Its in the perfect location, mornings you have the sunrise over the bay and evenings just walk across the street to walk on the beach and catch the sunset. The cottage is exactly as advertised with pictures, etc very clean and well equipped. It was great to have our dog along and she could sit out on the deck and screeened porch. Also having rented other units on the cape you dont have to haul groceries and luggage up long flights of stairs to the bedrooms, kitchen; it just has a few steps. Also Vince at the rental agency was very prompt in response etc. An excellant rental experience.
