  • Excellent Stay!

    "We had a wonderful relaxing week at The Great Escape. The house was in very nice conditions. The kitchen(as many have mentioned) is very well stocked. Our only complaint...which is not really a complaint...is the board walk has graduated steps down to the beach which makes it a little hard on a loaded down beach cart! The screened in porch area was great! That along with the sun deck offer great views of the beach and ocean sunsets! Our son slept on a twin air mattress in our bedroom so the grown-ups could stay up late and watch tv etc...just to note, it is a little tight with an air mattress in the bedroom....but nothing major! We would definitely recommend staying here!"

  • Another great week

    "We have been family vacationing here for several years and always enjoy our stay! The house is no frills, no fuss, and perfect for a relaxing escape. We were impressed with the new carpet and updated screened porch. Beach access is easy and when we need a break, we enjoy short day trips to Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. We're already looking forward to next year. Thank you!"

  • Excellent

    "Grand Escape is a very nice property, right on the beach. We spent a week there 4/30/16 - 5/7/16. There were a few minor maintenance issues that were addressed immediately once we brought them to the attention of the management company. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for a nice quiet beach experience for a large group. There were only a handful of other people on the beach the entire week - almost like having a private beach to ourselves. The beach here is pet friendly and the houses next door did have dogs that barked in the mornings, but not too bad. In general, I consider the pet friendly beach a minor takeaway - I would rather be away from my and other peoples pets during my vacation. The house is decorated nicely and sufficiently upscale and clean with good furniture. The pictures online don't really do the house justice. We were surprised at how big the place was when we showed up - the pics made it look small, but it's definitely not small - we only had 6 in our party and at times when folks were on different floors it felt like you are there alone. It was fairly well stocked for cooking and has a gas grill on the kitchen level. We cooked for 6 people multiple nights without issues. One thing that would have been nice to have would be an ice cream scoop - maybe it's there and we just didn't find it. The elevator is also a bit finicky - but we figured it out well enough. If it was my house I would be complaining to the elevator company to fix it properly - it may need to be reset if you leave the door open longer than 5 minutes. There are signs saying this could result in an expensive service charge but we never had to do that - kind of absurd they would expect you to pay $$$ to fix their crummy elevator. I feel sure the maintenance company would have reset it for free if we needed it. I would definitely return to this place if I were planning to come back to Port St.Joe / Cape San Blas area. It's probably one of the nicer rentals in the area. We stayed on the Cape 1 other time about 4 years ago and that place was also very nice, but not quite as nice as this one."

  • Family Vacation

    "Our vacation included our grown children and their families. Twelve people spending a week together was totally awesome. Our youngest grandchild is 2 and the oldest is 20. Many memories were made and will be iremembered forever. The condo was awesome, fully stocked with anything we needed. When we arrived it is in immaculate condition, therefore we left it the same way."
