Fun fact:

Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. Hilton describes Shangri-La as a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Shangri-La has become synonymous with any earthly paradise, and particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia — a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world.

Where should I begin;- This was our first trip to Cape San Blas and ALL of our expectations were met and more. The kitchen was in need of nothing, well stocked in everything. Our family of seven adults and four grandchildren (ages 6, 6, 10, &11) spent our 25th wedding anniversary and the Thanksgiving holiday here all during the same week. We had a very excellent dinner on our anniversary and Thanksgiving in the house since one of our sons is a great chef and loves to prepare fabulous dining experiences. We did not go out to sample the restaurants in the area since we cooked all our meals in the house. The house was a fantastic surprise; clean and fresh upon our arrival. Most of our time was spent at the beach as a family. The grand-kids loved this stretch of the beach because they could wade out without getting into deep water. After walking the beach in both directions almost daily, we noticed it is the best location for small kids. We did rent a two seat kayak and surf boards and were super impressed with the owner who runs the “San Flea Rentals” which is right off the main road 30E just south of the trading post store. His name is Butch and if you need a bike, surf boards or Kayaks, definitely go to this guy; what a super friendly and accommodating person! We couldn’t find any fault with this house. It is just a great vacation home. We found a gem of a vacation spot in Cape San Blas and are reluctant to share it with our friends (want to keep it to ourselves) but we will share it and encourage them to come to the Cape. These beaches are among the best we have seen in the states; so peaceful and uncrowded. The weather was in the mid 70’s for six of the seven days we were here with no rain with plenty of sun. The kids were playing in the gulf surf every day. We were also surprised on how friendly the local people were. We are definitely returning to this vacation spot on the Cape and specifically to Serenity Beach Rentals rental offerings. For a 73 year old guy, in relativity good shape, the elevator was a real asset in bring the luggage up to the second and third floor. The trading post store was close and very convenient in getting last minute food items that were missed for the dinners we were preparing. The recreation room and pool table was a big attraction for our whole family. Silvia was very good in responding to our calls when we couldn’t find things. .God bless, The Lacheta family from Carol Stream Illinois.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 4 of 5

This house was the perfect house for my family of 6 adults and 4 children. It met our needs in every way. The location and proximity to the water made this house fabulous.

Only recommendation I would offer is to bring your own towels, for extra.

Silvia was great to work with. We just booked this house for next summer also!

Family Beach Trip

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at San-gri-La again this year. The elevator was enjoyed by every guest young and old. The view is absolutely breathtaking! The house comes stocked with books, toys, TVs, and games for everyone. The kitchen is ready for lots of cooking and well stocked with kitchen gadgets and tools. The two refrigerators are a great plus for feeding large groups. Our kids as well as adults love the easy access to/from the beach. The water is clear and calm for little ones to play in the water. The hot tub is great for evening relaxing. Campfire s'mores are a must for our family every night. The Trading Post is within walking distance if you forget anything which is another added bonus. Silvia has been great to work with every year. The perfect destination for a tranquil get-away!

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. There were 3 couples and 4 kids. We had plenty of room. Just a walk away to the beach that was very private. Hurricane Hermine was headed our way (but turned more toward the east of us) and we couldn't even hear the wind blowing outside! The beds were so comfortable! Best naps I've ever had. Silvia was great. She was a call, email, or text away. We will be back for sure!

Perfect beach house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for large families. Plenty of room to spread out; lots of porches, tv's, dining space. Bunk rooms are great for kids. The beach is always clean and rarely crowded. Great sunset view. The house was clean and in great condition. Sylvia is a top-notch property manager; never had any problems. The Indian Pass Raw Bar is about 10 min away and has the best seafood around; be prepared to wait though. There are several other good places to each in the area.

Fantastic family beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun week with three generations of family from St. Louis. There was plenty of room throughout all levels and decks; we never felt like we were on top of each other. The private boardwalk to the beach was great and the dunes added a bit of privacy. Lots of wildlife and sea creature sightings, convenient walk to local general store, and incredible ocean views make this vacation house a home for sure!
