About Dawn Lounsbury

We are from South Florida and own and manage a restaurant in Ft Lauderdale. We love the water and love to be on the water and love food and found everything we wanted for our future at Cape San Blas

Why Dawn Lounsbury chose Port St. Joe

We fell in love with 150 Bayou Drive because of its spectacular views and wonderful dock and Bay access. We can dock our boat right in front of our home and be on the water in a few minutes. Our home is cozy yet a great open floor plan. Although this home is only 2 bedrooms the way it is laid out lets you have two separate living spaces and privacy and yet have great gathering space with views of the Bay and the Gulf you can't beat it.

Very comfortable and relaxing home.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Your cottage seemed to have everything we needed, including enough kitchen supplies for cooking thanksgiving dinner. A corkscrew would have been handy for us wine drinkers. A couple of small things; the bikes were out of service. The tandem's chain was off (broken) and the other bike has a hole in the front tire. Also we could not figure out the master bedroom TV, thought maybe its just a DVD player. Outside of that had great views and terrific sunrises. Good holiday week spent with the family.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanks for your comments, having feedback from our guests gives us an opportunity to address issues that come up like a missing corkscrew (has been replaced) Any time you find anything missing or just night right if you call us we will replace and fix if possible right away. We have removed the bikes and taken them off the rental. There is a bike rental just steps away for anyone interested in biking on our beautiful bike trail. We hope you come back again. Dawn & John

Perfect location and a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to San Blas for about 20 years and a lot has changed over that time. The great news is we found the relaxing, laid back spot we've been missing. The energy is perfect here. Truly enjoyed the view and the wildlife; herons, pelicans, ducks, osprey, bald eagle, crabs, fish etc.

Kayaking and just chillin!

Thanks for a lovely time at the place we love to visit.

We simply found the experience very "homey" and welcoming.

Cheers to this great place to relax.

Tranquility found

  • 5 of 5

We travel to the Cape on average three times per year. Flip Flops and Tank Tops was perfect for our group and fur babies. The cottage is very spacious with plenty of room for all. I enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the sunrise every morning. We will definitely be back.

Our major attractions are beach combing, watching for sea turtles, biking, fishing, walking, boating, shopping, dining out for fresh local seafood.

Cape San Blas is 15 mile long Peninsula creating over 15 miles of continuous beaches and 15 miles of pristine bay front.. Our Cape is known for getting away from it all. No high rises within site as our county only allows buildings 3 stories high. An 8 mile bike path takes you to the State Park. Spend a day on the beach or rent a pontoon boat and spend the day on the day searching for Sea Turtles and Dolphins.
