  • Awesome family beach vacation

    "We usually travel to Outer Banks, NC with four families of four. We like a large beach house with pool, hot tub, all master suites and a room for the kids. We wanted to shorten the drive from Kentucky to the beach this year, so we looked for a house in the Florida panhandle. We did not want condos. It was really hard to find a house in this area that would fit all ours needs in our budget. We finally found Heavenly Palms. It did not have a hot tub or all master suites for each couple, but it was super close to the beach and in a more secluded area away from all the touristy destinations like Panama City and Destin which totally made up for no hot tub and only two master suites. The pool was safely gated which was great for all our young kids. We spent way more time at the beach than we ever have on any of our OBX vacations. Mostly because it was so close- literally one minute walk across the street to the beach. You can see the beach from the front porches. I spent more time out on the screened in front porch than inside or at the pool. Hearing the ocean and smelling the ocean while drinking morning coffee, eating lunch and dinner as well as having an evening cocktail out on the screened in porch was very relaxing. Because Cape San Blas is not as populated like Destin, etc..... the night sky is so very bright with stars and the beautiful bright moon. The area is perfect. Lots of great restaurants in Port St Joe- a quaint little town. The people in this town as some of the nicest and friendliest I have ever experienced on vacation. Cape San Blas has horse back riding on the beach and a long bike path. The beaches are beautiful. The St Joseph State Park beach is a MUST. Absolutely gorgeous. Water was so clear I could see my feet even when I was chest deep in the water. (The beach is beautiful at the house, but the water isn't that clear.) We also enjoyed small shops in Apalachicola and the beautiful bay and its delicious Oysters at Boss Oyster. We took at quick trip to St George Island as well. The house is conveniently located centrally to Cape San Blas, Port St Joe and about 30 minutes to Apalachicola and 40 minutes to St George. More about the house- clean, quaint, and lots of windows to let in natural light. It could use a bit of updating- particularly in the kitchen. A new stove is in order, but it worked and we cooked a lot. We didn't really miss the hot tub at all as the Florida June summer is pretty hot anyways. Overall, great house!"

  • Our Stay June 4 - 11 2016

    "The property was as advertised and we enjoyed our stay. We did have an issue with the A/C upon arrival but when I called to report the problem it was promptly fixed and we were cool all week. Thanks Richard. The house was clean and well equipped for our weeks stay. We had plenty of room for our car and truck and boat. We enjoyed being close to the State Park and we used the bay access point to launch our kayaks. If you like to fish which is the main reason for our trip it is set up good for fish cleaning and boat parking. My four star rating is not an indication that something was wrong or could have been better but just that this is not a 5 star luxury suite with pool and game room and all kind of amenities and it is not advertised as such. If you are looking for that you will have to look else where but if you are looking for a nice house for 2 - 4 guess at a reasonable price you have found your house. I would definitely stay here again. Also the Trading post which is about 2.5 miles away is nicely stocked if you forgot something. We also enjoyed eating at the Sand-bucket which is on 30E and also back in Port St Joe on Reeds Street at Joe Mama's Pizza. Thanks allowing us the use of your home. Thanks Again Chris"

  • Our New Favorite Vacation

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Tropical Breeze. It is a beautiful home that is well taken care of and was immaculate when we arrived. It was large enough for our multi-family getaway, and the elevator is great for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. Roni, one of the owners, is fantastic to deal with. There is not a lot to do on Cape San Blas other than enjoy the natural surroundings, and that is just the way we like it! Weber's Donuts were the best we have ever had, and we enjoyed a day trip in to Apalachicola. We can't wait to return to A Tropical Breeze!"

  • Family of 10 Adults & 2 Children & a Dog! - Rented All 3 Condos

    "We rented all 3 AquaEssence Condos for a week! We had 10 adults (5 couples), 2 Children and a Dog. Each couple had a bedroom and the couple with 2 children had their own condo. This was perfect for our first family vacation in 9 years! We were all together, yet we all had our own space/privacy when needed. We had a couple of BBQs, found nice places to eat in surrounding areas (Mexico Beach) and Port St. Joe. The 5 guys went fishing one day and scored some Red Snapper for dinner! We also rented a pontoon boat and enjoyed the bay for a day and were able to go out to the tip of Cape San Blas. We had perfect weather (lucky this time cause ya never know!) The condos were well stocked with kitchen items, towels, washer/dryer, dishwasher, 2 full baths in each condo. They were all very nice! Thank you to Vince!"
