About the property

Beach front cottage - 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleep up to 6!

Dig your toes in the beautiful, sugar-like sand situated in front of our luxurious beach home. Watch the bald eagles soar over head (they have a nest across the street) and watch the dolphins jump out of the water early in the morning and again at sunset. It is spectacular! Effortlessly walk down the boardwalk from the yard, and nestle yourself in a chair on the dunes to enjoy breath-taking views of the subtle waves and the ever-changing sunsets, or grab something to drink and hang out on the deck and enjoy the breathtaking views. We renovated this beautiful property in early 2016!

This 1650 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage is located directly on the beach, and can sleep 6 people. With sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico, a large open deck, and steps to a brand new boardwalk that goes out to the beach, this is the perfect place to get some rest and relax!

We do offer monthly discounts for extended stays - please inquire for a full rental quote.

About Kate & Garrett

My husband and I are serial entrepreneurs currently living in the Silicon Valley. While we have traveled all around the world, the Cape San Blas area and beaches create a sense of tranquility and seclusion, which is unlike any other place. When we're not working feverishly, we're on the beach enjoying the sugar-like sand, watching for dolphins and eagles from our porch, and dipping into warm ocean water during the summer. We also LOVE the 'off season' because it's quiet, relaxing, and there's always a good sunset to catch- it's the best time to visit the house.

Kate & Garrett purchased this house in 2014

Why Kate & Garrett chose Florida Main North West

We recently purchased this home near Cape San Blas in late 2014 and immediately began renovating and remodeling the home, bringing all the luxuries of home, to our beach home. We fell in love with ocean, the tranquility, and the amazing sunsets years ago, while visiting my husband's family over the holidays two years ago. While we have traveled all over the world, we've found that the Cape San Blas area is one of our favorite places to be! Owning this home is our dream come true, and we look forward to sharing it with your family!

What makes this house unique

With the gorgeous and surreal daily sunsets, an unforgettable view of the beach and ocean, and the opportunity to see wild dolphins, countless species of birds, and the ability to comb the beach for sand dollars and shells at a moments notice, buying this home was one of the most satisfying decisions we made.

Perfect location with everything you need for a great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has a fantastic view and is a very easy walk to the beach. My teenage kids and dog loved the area and the house and we felt very much at home. The pictures provided by the owner are very accurate. The house shares a very large deck with access to the boardwalk to the beach with an adjacent home but this had no effect on our enjoyment during the week or our privacy. The house was clean and well equipped. My only improvement idea would be to have more hooks to hang towels and swimsuits in the bathrooms.

The area is quiet which is what we were looking for and there are plenty of amenities and restaurants that are only a 10-15 minute drive. I hope to come back and stay as it was a wonderful rental.

Beautiful and Relaxing

Beautiful home with a relaxing, quiet beach. Teenage kids had a wonderful time fishing, crabbing, and checking out all the places within close proximity.

Amazing views & only steps away from the sand & water!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and comfortable. Nicely decorated. Late Oct/early November was perfect for us. Most days we were the only people on the beach as far as you could see. Great weather the entire week and no biting flies. Kitchen was well equipped & had everything we needed. Description indicates the unit is a cottage but it is a duplex. I would have preferred knowing this before booking. It did not impact our stay...we ended up making new friends with the family staying in the unit beside us.

Great Family Week at the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We took our two children and mother in law for a week long trip on Cape San Blas. The home was very tidy and clean when we arrived. We really enjoyed the location of the home and having the ocean right out the back door - we spent most of the week hanging out on the deck or down by the water. It's was the perfect place for our family to get some rest and relaxation - and enjoy the amazing sunsets by the beach. We will definitely be back!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing location! Right on the sand, in a lovely neighborhood - it couldn't have been better!

We rented BOTH cottages for a family vacation we took with my parents - I appreciated that the cottages were right next to each another, yet, we had our own space when desired.

The kids went between the houses, and spent HOURS playing in the sand and in the water. Grandpa fished, Gramie enjoyed the sunsets, and we all went snorkeling. It was both relaxing and fun - everything a vacation should be.

The house was just re-done, so everything was clean and nice, and I liked that it was all on one floor. And pet-friendly too.

We'll be back!

Best Beach House, Best Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Cape San Blas Beach is by far the best beach we have vacationed on. miles and miles of shoreline and hardly anyone there. My wife and I took the kids for a week of R&R and adventure. We rented wave runners in Mexico Beach, we went night fishing, rented a 4x4 to drive on the beach, ate delicious food in Apalachicola & Port St Joe, and just had a wonderful time. The house is everything you need. Beds that are comfortable, new towels and sheets, and the kitchen is stocked. You can tell the home has recently been renovated and the owners truly care about how the home looks and feels. You walk in and would never be able to tell that it has been rented before. We will be back.

Only 5 miles away, enjoy a charter fishing boat and go deep sea fishing where you can not only see dolphins and sharks, but keep the fish you catch and eat them for dinner. Looking for more to do? You can also take a shuttle to the remote island of St. Vincent, where you may see the exotic Sandbar Deer and numerous species of birds and wildlife. Try to identify the extensive array of vegetation and explore the rugged terrain with optimal views of the Forgotten Coast. With Panama City Beach, less than an hour away, feel free to explore the city during its quiet season or set out to watch spring breakers party.
