Why Bob Toler chose Cape San Blas

After vacationing at the Cape for many years, we decided to purchase a lot and build our dream. We invite you to relax and enjoy our new beach cottage and fall in love with the unspoiled beauty of the Cape too.

What makes this house unique

Salt Air Cottage was specially designed by the owner to maximize gulf views from every room. Two spacious covered decks and the private pool entertainment area cater to outdoor family meals and gathering or simply relaxing in Adirondack chairs with beautiful views and the tranquility of ocean waves. The elevator enables mobility for all guests. A coffee and beverage station just outside the bedrooms is convenient for early mornings and evening indulgence. Serene upscale interiors are intended to refresh and renew with the simplicity and comfort of an old Florida vacation.

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

It seems you just can never be sure how things will be when you rent a home. This home, however, is the exception. The way it was displayed and described is exactly how it is. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Salt Air Cottage.

It was great for our 91 year old mother with the elevator, helping her feel the ease of getting around. Our ages ranged from mid 50s to 91 and all were comfortable and satisfied with the accommodations. We very much enjoyed the pool, even tho the day we arrived and day after it was not warm enough to use, but after that and subsequent days it was wonderful. The weather got a bit cool for a couple of days but those balconies were worth putting up with the cool. We thoroughly enjoyed watching many, many dolphins each day, playing in the water.

This home, and that is the word for this establishment, home, is just exactly what all of us needed and we would come back anytime we can make the time and have the funds to do so.

The Tolers have truly put much thought into this home and have made it soooo comfortable and enjoyable for others, that words just don't adequately express how much anyone who stays will enjoy being here.

A Family Vacation We'll Never Forget!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation ever and as a family of 6 we were nervous how it was going to go. Well, everything was perfect plus more. When we got there we even found out that we probably didn't need to pack as much as we did because Bob has thought of everything for a family to stay and not have any worries. The views are amazing from the best porches imaginable. We loved sitting out there at night listening to the waves and stargazing! Which is probably what I miss the most! I have never seen my husband so relaxed in the 13 years we have been together which says a lot.

The property was just as pictured if not better! Our kids loved the elevator, even when we only had to go down one floor to get to there bedrooms for bedtime. Now that we had that luxury I don't think they'll stay in another house without one but I think we'll be staying here on our next vacation so no worries there!

The property was clean and well maintained. Bob called to check up on us to make sure everything was going ok and if we needed anything. We didn't really do much while we were there except to swim in the pool and go to the beach everyday. We did have day where we woke up and the pool felt cool so we called Bob and he got someone over there right away to fix it with no problems. He even discounted us a day for heating the pool, which I thought was great customer service! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Cape San Blas! Next time I think we are going to come in the beginning of October! Can't wait!

"Best Vacation Ever"

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to write this, for fear that this property will become become so popular that we won't be able to rent it next year. Everything was perfect, from the initial post-booking call with the owner to the very last day. The location couldn't be better, and the home is well stocked with everything you'll need (including tons of beach toys for the kids and extra beach chairs for the adults). While not technically "beach front", there are no homes to block your view of the sunsets, and the walk to the beach is literally 5 minutes or less. From day one my wife claimed this was the "best vacation ever". Can't wait to go back.

What more could anyone ask for in a beach vacation? This home was so well done that my family is looking forward to our next stay. Beautiful open concept home with the layout of bedrooms and baths planned so as to allow privacy. Color scheme, furniture, appliances, are all great. Great attention to detail throughout this property. The owner is very welcoming and provided explicit information prior to our arrival. Last, but certainly not least, the close convenience to the beach with beautiful sunsets. All my family left with very special memories of our visit to Cape San Blas and this lovely home! And did I mention the heated pool...

Wonderful home and vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 10 with 4 kids and 6 adults. This house was perfect for all of us. The three levels worked well as we all congregated on the main level but had our own space as well. The sunset views from the porch were exquisite and the expansive views of the beach were as good. Easy walk across to the beach. The pool was a big plus for all of us. The house was only a year old and furnished well. Everything one might need was provided, including chairs for the beach as well as pool toys for the kids. Great location. I would definitely recommend this property for a large family or group of friends.

Cape San Blas is like going back in time; Old Florida at its best. The Seagrass community is quiet and family friendly; a special, sought after, private vacation community. It offers a club house, community pool and the beautiful Cape San Blas beach which was ranked #1 beach by Dr. Beach in 2002. The Cape continues to be considered one of the top five beaches in America. There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere nearby; just simply miles of pristine beaches and large dunes!

As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can collect a variety of seashells or just enjoy watching the dolphins swim by or eagles and osprey scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking or fishing in the surf are also a favorite. Explore St. Joseph Peninsula State Park just a few minutes away with it nature trails, huge natural dunes, fishing, and abundance of birds.

You may want to rent bikes and golf carts to cruise on the many miles of bike paths or kayaks and motor boats to explore the bay, gulf, many waterways or fresh water lakes. Or you may prefer sunset horseback riding on the beach as it can also be conveniently arranged. St. Joseph Bay Country Club open to the public is only a few miles away offering a golf course along with tennis. For water exploration there are five separate boat ramps within a few miles offering access to St Joseph's Bay, Apalachicola Bay, St. Vincent’s Island National Park, Lake Wimico for large mouth Florida Bass and many other waterways.

You can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net for shrimp, collect Apalachicola Bay Oysters or go scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay. Enjoy these delicacies or freeze them for your return home.

If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. The famous Indian Pass Raw Bar is just a few miles away, offering the area's delicious oysters, shrimp, gumbo and often featuring live entertainment and dancing. It is just 20 minutes to the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many restaurants offering the worlds best seafood along with night spots. Walk the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day or visit the charming shops. The village of Port St. Joe is 15 minutes away with numerous shops and restaurants; a good place to stock up on all of the provisions you'll need.
