A perfect vacation!
I can't say enough wonderful things about this property and our vacation. We had 6 adults and 4 kids ranging from 11 months to 15. We had plenty of room, and the kids bunk room was great. The house is perfectly situated between the bay and ocean. It was an easy walk to either place, even with the baby. Cape San Blas is definitely my favorite Florida vacation yet! No high rise condos; therefore, the beaches are not crowded at all. The two pools were great as well. No amusement parks or malls, so the only thing to enjoy here is the beautiful bay, ocean, and family. Perfect. Just what I needed! Plus, the owner called to check on us to make sure everything was in order and offered suggestions for places to eat. I thought that was extremely nice. Can't wait to come back!
Will definitely return
Above and beyond expectations!
Our family loved everything about our stay at CSB! The house was just perfect for us. It's location is centered between the Gulf and the bay and we enjoyed both as well as the two Ovation pools. The house itself was spacious with a lot of areas to sit and read alone or gather together to eat, play games, and enjoy being together. It is beautifully decorated with a fully stocked kitchen and even toys for the little ones! The beds were also very comfortable! We appreciated the owner calling to check on us. She was a delight to talk to! We can't wait until our visit next June!
Relax. Recharge. Perfect location!
This was our first time to the Cape. Looking on VRBO it is difficult to be sure where to stay. We got lucky and found the BEST spot. This house is located in Ovation subdivision along one of the narrowest strips on the peninsula. It literally has the bay on one side and the gulf on the other. While others may claim this, their access can not compare to Happy Hour by the Bay. Easy access to the bay. Just a walk across a grassy area to the bay beach. This area has chairs and a fire pit. Two fishing piers. And a clubhouse with a infinity pool and hot tub. Directly across the street was easy beach access. No long boardwalk. No long trecks through sand. Just an easy walk across the street. We will definitely be returning to this spot. Plenty of room for everyone. Great seating on the porches. And incredibly stocked in the kitchen and in the garage. There was even one bicycle for an adult and one bicycle for a small child. Plus a couple of little coolers.
Do know that the Cape is not for those seeking tons of restaurants and putt putt.
It is true old Florida. Your entertainment is the ocean and bay fishing. Perfect for relaxing and recharging and escaping from the hustle and bustle. We loved it!!
We are thrilled that you enjoyed Happy Hour by the Bay! This property is perfection and exactly what you need to really get away from all the hassles of everyday life! Picture perfect, great amenities, and just steps from all the cape has to offer. We can't wait to host your next stay!

This house was phenomenal!
Out of all the vacation homes I have rented in the past in various areas, this was by far the best. The house was spacious, comfortable and clean! The kitchen was fully stocked with any type of kitchen utensils, pots and pans necessary for cooking and preparing meals for ten people, plus it was not cheaply decorated or sparsely furnished. The owner even called us to make sure we were comfortable and see if we had any questions about the house. When booking a house for three families with four boys you never quite know what to expect, I was a little nervous with the location of the house UNTIL we arrived, and it turned out perfect for us! The house was within a short walking distance of the bay, the pool and the beach. The boys were so excited to explore nature and swim with the wildlife in the bay and ocean, we had spotted shark, Dolphins, deer, bobcat and other animals. We fell in love with Cape San Blas and plan to visit again with extended family and stay again at Happy hour by the bay! If you visit Cape San Blas make sure to shark fish from the marina in Port St Joe, eat at Indian Pass Raw bar and horseback ride on the beach!
You have captured the essence of the cape and of Happy Hour by the Bay perfectly! This house is phenomenal! So well appointed and well maintained, the care really shows in every aspect. That, coupled with the perfectly decorated rooms really makes this house a great home base at the cape! The only issue is you might not want to leave!
Please come back soon!

BEST HOUSE/LOCATION ON CAPE
We have stayed on the Cape most summers for the last 15 years. In all those years, we have never stayed on the bay side. We have found the home we will return to, if at ALL possible, year after year. The house was absolutely perfect, the amenities of ovation were outstanding, and the beach access was perfect. We had two families - with a total of 6 children ages 18 months to 10. There was a perfect, flat walk up to the beach. Less than a 3 minute walk with children, boogie boards, and wagons. We all enjoyed both the ocean side pool and bay side pool. We spend most afternoons walking in the bay digging up sand dollars, scallops, fiddler crabs and saw so many stingrays and horse shoe crabs. We were all delighted with it. The home was perfectly appointed ( more so than any other home we have stayed in at Cape and we have rented MANY). The beach was beautiful and sparse, we enjoyed watching the "turtle people" find an unprecedented green sea turtle nest and watch them dig to the eggs. Two college friends brought their families to the beach for a reunion 20 years in the making.... THANK YOU to Maggie and George for sharing your home with us. We truly enjoyed the personal phone call on Monday morning and hope to rent your home for as long as you will let us!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Happy Hour by the Bay! Every detail was planned and executed in this brand new home to give your family the perfect home away from home for your vacation! We do hope you will be back and thank you for sharing our secret - the best new house on the cape!!!
