This property is incredible! One of the best family experiences ever!
Nancy and Ken did a remarkable job in welcoming us to Cape San Blas - and Cool Change is certainly a diamond in the rough! Close to the beach and all the area amenities - yet remote enough for privacy and avoiding those crazy Spring Break crowds! We loved cooking out on the deck with the fantastic views, building fires on the beach, and exploring everything Cape San Blas has to offer. I would highly recommend Cool Change - a week to remember for sure!
Beautiful and well maintained home
The home was very spacious and clean. The furniture was nice and in good condition. The owners are very friendly and responsive to any questions. The house is in a neighborhood with a short walk to the beach and accessible to the bay as well....a great location for a fair price. I would recommend staying here for your Port St. Joe visit!
Great place for a getaway with the family!!
This house is in a great location and is convenient to the beach. We were on vacation with our two sons, their spouses and our grandson. The house was perfectly suited for our family get together. We all enjoyed the screened porches, large entertaining spaces and the well equipped kitchen. Ken is very knowledgeable about area restaurants and attractions. Thank You Ken and Nancy for being such gracious hosts.
Thank you Richard for leaving Cool Change in such spotless condition! We loved having you as guests and hope you'll consider a return trip!
Great location and nice views of the gulf. House was clean but needs updating.
Nancy and Ken were congenial , accommodating and I would rent from them again.
Thanks Larry! We enjoyed meeting you two and hope you will return.
