We loved our stay at Cape Saan Blas. Beautiful beach, lots of shells, not crowded in February.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with the condo. Very roomy and cute, well stocked with everything you need. We had a fantastic sunset view every night. Just steps to the beach and nice pool area.

Had an enjoyable experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. Very clean, plenty of kitchen stuff and the walkway to the beach was not far. Parking is a little tight but we had a full size truck. It was a very peaceful trip. The beach is beautiful.

The property was not what I expected. It was not kept up, and not updated

  • 2 of 5

The condo itself was not in bad condition, but its outdated compared to the other condos around it. The washer and dryer are all rusted and the dryer did NOT turn off. I almost broke my arm, when I didn't realize it. The master bedrooms balcony door handle is broken on the outside. Makes it very hard to get back in!! The shower curtain had black gunk on it. And the water drained very slowly. We felt like we were taking a bath in the shower. We had a child with us and she dropped something under the couch, when we went to find it, we found a pair of flip flops that were not any of ours and broken glass. You only get 1 set of towels per person in your party, which we didn't find out until we got our check-in instructions. We are supposed to be on vacation----who wants to HAVE to wash towels EVERY DAY!!!! The washer and dryer are on the main floor and there was no basket to carry them back up the stairs. The pots and pans are minimal and the silverware also. I have rented a lot of condos and this one was very disappointing. The towels that we did have were not all clean when we got there. Some of the beach chairs were broken. There were many things that need a lot of attention. The owners have a nice place there, I just hope they realize it and make some changes before it's too late. It has a beautiful view and close to the beach.... just what I always want when I go to the beach!!! But for the price, I would have, and did expect more. But this was a family vacation and we had a great time even though the condo didn't live up to my expectations. It is, after all, about being with the ones you love

Owner's Response: We regret that you were not happy with your stay. We wish you had given us an opportunity to address your concerns. Since your stay, the unit has been sold and the new owners have made numerous updates, with even more planned. A few include new flooring, new slider doors, paint, new furnishings, equipment and kitchen items. We strive to make every stay as exceptional as possible and check in instructions are sent a week in advance, so that people can plan their trip accordingly. We are always available for questions and two of the partners in Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals live within walking distance to the unit, allowing for immediate response. We will continue to provide exemplary service and our new owners are committed to property upgrades making this gulf front unit, with three separate gulf front decks, a perfect destination for your next beach getaway!

The Seacliffs is the perfect kind of place for the kind of family vacation that includes our dogs.

Location was great, but it needs some updating.

  • 3 of 5

We had a very nice time at Bonfire Beach. The location was great, being only steps away from the beach. The views were spectacular. The property needs new appliances, unclogging of draines and drain covers on the second floor, bathroom. It was marketed as a three bathroom condo but is really a two and a half bathroom property with a "Jack and Jill" type bathroom in the second floor. It looks like updating is in progress and it was a pleasant stay. The location's biggest asset was its nearness to the white, sandy beach. We're happy we stayed.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your input and yes, the unit updates are underway! The entire inside of the unit has just been painted, including the kitchen cabinets. All new bedding and curtains, too! And, all drains were serviced by a certified plumber. We are a bit confused by your comment that the unit is advertised as 3 bath. The unit has been and is advertised as 3 bed, 2 1/2 bath. We have never advertised it as 3 bath and I am sorry for any confusion. New pictures coming soon!!!

Great place and super close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Overall, this is a great place that we booked for a last minute spring break trip. It has everything you need and you are steps from the beach. It could use a bit of updates but nothing too bad. The only things big you should know is the lock box for the key is on the downstairs door knob in the car port. Not the lock box by the main door. Once we figured that out, the rest was a nice, relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your experience at Bonfire Beach! We are sorry for your confusion on the lockbox and were glad to be able to help you quickly. The lockbox information is in our check in instructions, but if you don't print them and bring them with you, sometimes you cannot access from your phone due to spotty cell service. We do hope you will come back soon and see the updates in progress! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals
