About Jan and Greg Matney

Cape San Blas and her charm captured us immediately. Living in New Orleans, we wanted a quiet, dog friendly beach community and found it here. White beaches, dolphins jumping. pelicans soaring, kayaking, paddle-boarding and spotting an occasional turtle provides us with much needed R & R. We're happy to share our beach home with you and trust that you will find it as "magical" as we do.

Jan and Greg Matney purchased this condo in 2015

Why Jan and Greg Matney chose Florida Main North West

We choose this home over many others because of the amazing light inside and the views outside. Located on a short, dead-end road with private beach access helps keeps the crowds away.

What makes this condo unique

Well-appointed, romantic, quiet and comfortable. You'll enjoy your time inside as much as you do your time outside on the beach! Perfectly equipped for one or two couples with no more than two children.

Bring Back the Magic

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was everything we expected and more. It was beautifully decorated and fully equipped with anything you might need like blender, coffeemaker, beach chairs, etc. We appreciated the fact that it was spotlessly clean upon arrival. It also had a deck with Gulf view which was a wonderful place to take morning coffee and start the day. The interior was spacious and very comfortable for 4 people. The cost was very reasonable and I will have to say it was the nicest condo we have ever rented and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Noel, thanks for the great review! We're thrilled that you enjoyed our place as much as we do. I hope our TN neighbors downstairs we're too annoying ;) Looking forward to welcoming you back sometime soon, Greg & Jan

Lovely condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the Cape at "Bring Back the Magic." The location was super convenient and the condo itself was beautiful and well appointed. I already miss having my morning coffee while watching dolphins and enjoying the sunset from the deck. The owners were wonderful to work with also. We can't wait to visit again!

Not so Pet Friendly

  • 1 of 5

Not so pet friendly condo was not cleaned well sand underneath rugs, toys all over, food left in fridge, and floors were filthy. When we returned we were told we would not receive our deposit back because the rugs were not able to be cleaned. The owners say it is pet friendly, but they try not to rent to people that have pets.

Owner's Response: We are "pet friendly", but request that pets not be left unattended in our home, as we have expensive area rugs that cannot be laundered. The rugs add to our decor, and the homey feeling guests love. We feel as badly about the damage done, as you do. This is the first deposit we've ever retained, and unfortunately it didn't cover the damage we incurred during your stay ($650 between soiled rugs and broken planter. None of which were disclosed). We understand that some pets do not travel well, and expect guests to be respectful and responsible.

Great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Bring Back the Magic. The location was great and steps away from the beach. The house was beautifully decorated and very spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need to cook a great meal. Jan was wonderful with reserving the property and with the accommodations. Thank you so much Jan!!! The views were great and we hope to return to this wonderful location soon!!! Thanks again for making our vacation great!

Truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Condo rentals on CSB can be hit or miss. This condo had it all. The views from the deck and living areas were spectacular. This condo is obviously cared for beyond the typical rental. The furniture and decorations made you feel like you're at home, the bedrooms were comfortable, the bathrooms updated, the kitchen well stocked. Most importantly, this place was clean. Very, very clean in fact. We look forward to returning in the near future.

Cape San Blas is a 17 miles of white sandy beaches with very low-density housing, and no high-rise buildings. There are a few small stores, gift shops, ice cream, donut and coffee shops within walking distance. The beaches of Gulf County are dog-friendly (except in the state park). This is "old Florida", where you go to relax. No late-night party spots, putt-putt golf, wave-runner rentals or parasailing here, however the beach walking, beach-combing, shelling, swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing, biking, bird/dolphin watching and nature hiking are abundant and world-class! When you're ready for a break from the beach, the handful of bars, restaurants and raw bars, within a 10-12 minute drive are great and the scenic, historic towns of Port St. Joe (20 min drive) and Apalachicola (30 min drive) offer plenty of casual and fine dining options, unique shopping, galleries, museums, etc. Once you visit, you'll never forget the "forgotten coast"!
