Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed our family vacation at your home on Cape San Blas. Weather and water were absolutely perfect. We spent a wonderful week of relaxation on the Cape. Your home was everything we could have asked for. We fixed all of our meals so the kitchen served us well. We enjoyed fresh doughnuts in the morning from the Trading Post. Days were spent on the beach or the screened in porch....took walks and/or bike rides on the bike path.....and many long walks on the beach where we found some beautiful shells. The worst part was having to leave on Saturday morning. We cannot wait to make another visit to the Cape and your home.

Thank you so much for your hospitality.

We are repeat guests and will do so again! Wonderful home on the beach that creates a fun family atmosphere. Despite the weather being non-cooperative during spring break we had a fantastic time on the beach. We will be back!

Well maintained home steps from a beautiful white sand beach. Perfect for our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this home and the location. The owner is delightful and has the home equipped for all cooking needs. We needed only two of the bedrooms, but the home could sleep 8 adults very comfortably. The home is just a few steps from the beach which made it so easy to access supplies as needed. A small general store is within walking distance, so very few trips into town were needed.

Fall Break Family Vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

In 2007 our family of four discovered the Cape. We fell in love with the quiet, laid back feel of the area. Over the past 10 years we have visited CSB 7 times and Sandcastle is by far our favorite place. In 2009 we rented Sandcastle for the first time and fell in love with the house and all it has to offer. Now our family has grown with the addition of our daughter-in-law and grandson. This is our family's 4th time to rent Sandcastle. It really has become our home away from home! It is always clean and ready to welcome our family. The kitchen is so well stocked that we only ate out 3 meals in our 7 days there. The screened porch was perfect for eating and surf watching. The beds are comfortable and the living room is the perfect place to end the day to unwind from the sun and sand. Before we left, we were already discussing when we will return to this little peace of paradise.

Holly and Gordon make sure that everything is perfect and are always ready to answer any question or help if there are concerns, like impending weather watches, etc.

Great house. Well stocked, bedroom with ocean view, outside full shower, grill, uncovered deck, great screened in porch and a personal walkway to the beach make this house special.

Great house and right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Sandcastle and are already talking about coming back next year. It was a great space for our family (5 adults, 2 six yr olds). On a clear night when the moon wasn't out, you could see a ton of stars and the Milkyway. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds and "hunting" ghost crabs at night. And the adults liked that it was close enough that you could come back at lunch and not bring so much to the beach. We stayed at the beach all day, everyday so we didn't explore much besides a couple of outings to walk to the Trading Post and get ice cream. Really our only complaint was one night when there was no breeze there were bugs and we got a few good mosquito bites, but most of the other nights were fine.

Gorgeous views from the large screened in porch and you are on the beach within seconds

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing vacation. We enjoyed being right on the beach . We didn't even pack a cooler since the walk was so quick back to the house. Loved playing cards at night on the screened porch and building fires on the beach. Sunsets are fantastic! Already looking forward to next year.
