Good spot

  • 3 of 5

Nice place. Good beds. Clean. Decent kitchen supplies but if you plan on washing or cleaning you will need to bring your own supplies.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been visiting Cape San Blas for many years. The Calico Crab was our best rental at Barrier Dunes.

This property was well stocked and didn't make you feel like you were in a rental. Definitely gave you that "at home" feeling.

The Calico Crab will definitely be our choice for our future stays at CSB.

Thank you,

MaryLynn, Alan and Alyssa

Very cute!

I loved this little cottage. The beach access was a nice little walk. Not long at all. The decor was very beachy and the beds comfortable. Me and my sisters had a very nice weekend away here!

Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had very nice stay at the Calico Crab. Everything was as stated -- maybe even better! I enjoyed the spacious master bedroom/bath. My friend was very comfortable in the guest bedroom/bath which was also nice. Beds were comfy. Flat screened TVs in living room and both bedrooms. The kitchen was very well equipped. Great coffee maker! We especially enjoyed our lunches on the screened in porch overlooking the lake. Weather was beautiful. Enjoyed walking on the beach. Great time of year to enjoy the beauty of Cape San Blas.

For fun, shopping and good food visit Apalachicola, Port St. Joe and Mexico Beach.
