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

Condo was great but it's time for a beach patrol.

  • 4 of 5

Our condo was very nice. The place was clean and everything was operating well. The condo is spacious and comfortable. The view is great and the proximity to the beach is fantastic. We had everything that we needed.

I LOVE Cape San Blas. I have been coming here since I was a little girl and we camped out at the state park. There were little to no houses on the cape back then. I have been watching it grow and secretly wishing the secret of how wonderful the cape is would stay a secret. But alas, they are coming.

This is good for the economy of Port St. Joe and Gulf County and I am happy for that. My plans to retire in Pt. St. Joe have not been foiled, not yet.

The Leave No Trace Behind ordinance is almost a joke. There were cards in the condo telling you about this ordinance but there was absolutely no enforcement. There were tents and chairs and great big buckets of sand left on the beach every night. And the fires, the logs from the fires, all over the place. The ordinance states that if you don't take everything off of the beach at night that it will be confiscated and not returned. Empty threats. I woke up early in the mornings as the sun was coming up and the beach was a mess, every morning. This cape and this county has an opportunity to preserve this wonderful natural environment but they aren't doing it. I saw so many turtle nests marked but worried all night every night that those nests were hatching and those hatchlings couldn't make it to the ocean because of all of the mess on the beach.

As I stood on the deck off of the master bedroom in this condo looking out at the mess that Barrier Dunes and Sea Cliffs were making I felt like that Native American in the pollution commercial from the 70's. (A little dramatic I know but seriously that thought ran through my mind as I was up there.) Please as a property owner say something to the county to get some enforcement going on this ordinance.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on Bonfire Beach! We are so glad that you enjoyed the condo and we do hope you will return again! Also, we do share your concern for people leaving their stuff on the beach and we strongly support the leave no trace ordinance and agree that enforcement is a necessary part of that to truly make a difference. We know that it happens in steps and we are happy that the ordinance was passed, but now the next step is to push for enforcement. My partner, Penny, lives in the neighborhood close to SeaCliffs and Barrier Dunes and in heavily involved in the turtle patrol, and protecting the beach and the cape. The cape takes you back to old world Florida where there are no high rises and the beaches are beautiful. We hope to keep it that way! Sincerely, Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals

Great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was the first sibling vacation we've had since all having children. The kitchen was well stocked. Right on the beach, just around the corner & over the dunes. Easy for us with small children & lots of beach stuff. Would definitely stay again. Cindy was easy to work with. We were able to get in last minute (the next day) with no problems!

Beautiful beach. Very safe for kids.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at your house. The kids were so happy they didn't want to leave. The beach, the pool. It was paradise!

We will be repeating our experience. Thank you!

Snowbird second season

  • 4 of 5

We received outstanding service and response to questions or needs. The view is amazing, the unit is well supplied and equipped. We didn't care for the master bedroom on second floor so we skipped that level and went to third floor. We stayed all winter and we really enjoyed being here. Being gulf front adds ALOT to the vacation experience and is worth the extra money. A vacuum for long term renters would be a nice touch.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We work hard to address any concerns quickly and we appreciate the opportunity to host your stay! Gulf front is truly a wonderful experience - waking up to the waves, the sound of the water and even watching the rain roll through are all experiences that change when you are "sitting on the water"! We do hope that you will come back again soon! Cindy Trubee Knot Forgotten Vacation Rentals
