Why Bob Toler chose Seagrass

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.

What an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous house. And even more important than a beautiful, well-kept (let's be honest, it looks brand new) property, the service we got from Bob throughout our stay (and before!) was amazing. We contacted him with random questions throughout the week and he was fast to respond. When we decided last minute we wanted the pool turned on, he made it happen in what seemed like a snap of his fingers. Thanks, Bob! We will definitely be staying here again. Lovely.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here with 6 family members plus our dogs. We knew from the pictures that it would be a nice place, but it was even better than we thought.

The day we were headed down to check in was coincidentally during Hurricane Irma's path toward Florida. There was still a lot of uncertainty about where it would land. Bob was great communicating updated info with us on the way down. There was a voluntary evacuation issued, and because of the uncertainty and our group size and dogs, we decided to go further inland the day after we checked in just to be safe. We had also been communicating with the local property manager, and were able to confirm with him when it was safe to come back.

We so much appreciated the great communication about the safety and weather conditions. We ended up being gone about 36 hours, and the rest of the week was absolutely wonderful. Our family has been taking vacations to the Gulf for over 30 years, since I was just a kid, and this was honestly probably the nicest property we've ever stayed in. Besides being beautiful, the layout is so comfortable. The kitchen and living area are so nice and open. We did a fair amount of cooking while there, and I can't think of a single thing we needed that wasn't stocked in that kitchen. All the bedrooms have a beautiful ocean view and deck access and very nice bathrooms. It is a super easy stroll to the beach, and then so nice having a private pool to come back to. The beach chairs and towels were very thoughtful. The elevator was so helpful with bringing in suitcases, etc, especially since we moved in and out twice.

The beach itself is of course beautiful, and our dogs had the best time running and chasing the waves and birds. We usually stay on 30A, but it's unfortunately gotten so crowded. While this was only our 2nd visit to Cape San Blas, we definitely hope to return. I hesitate to write such a great review because I'd like to keep this place a secret, but the property and the Tolers could not be nicer. Wonderful memories were made and I look forward to returning!

Perfection..

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a beautiful home with all the bells and whistles, then look no further! Salt Air Cottage is cozy yet immaculate with everything you'll need for the perfect vacation, and Bob's hospitality cannot be beat! They've literally thought of everything, and all you'll need to worry about is what bathing suit to wear and which groceries to bring. The home is nestled behind dunes, but don't let "Like Gulf Front" fool you because your view is spectacular, and the walk to the beach easy and quick. There is no doubt that we will be back, and we are already counting down the days until we're back in this perfect oasis. If you have dogs, like we do, then the Salt Air Cottage is a must with huge patios on the top two levels where they can take in all the sights and smells of the beach as well as an area underneath the home for an effortless bath after digging and playing in the sand. We would highly recommend this home, and it was an absolute delight working with Bob!

Beautiful home and extremely responsive owner

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Bob's beautiful beach house. The house was perfect for our two families each with two small children. A short walk to the beach. Bob was also incredibly helpful and responsive with the few issues we had during the week. Wonderful vacation!

Beautiful home, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Cape San Blas was fabulous! Salt Air Cottage was clean, well- equipped and very well-maintained. We can't say enough about the fabulous gulf view complete with a soothing breeze! Clear communication with the owner made planning easy. We're hoping to return in the future.

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.
