Everything you need!
This house met every need we had, from the comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, distance to pool and beach, it was all phenomenal. Brent was a joy to work with and kept in close communication. Unfortunately we didn’t get a lot of water time because of Sally but with the big open living area, everyone had a great time playing games, eating, reading, TV - all together, which is what I love. There were tons of beach toys, chairs and an umbrella that we used at the pool for the one day we had (it had a post to insert it) One thing I always look for in a rental is enough seating - if you have enough beds for 10 people you need enough seating for that in the living room, dining table, and porch. The Craig’s place met all these needs and more. Thank you Brent!

Brent’s Coastal Cottage was an absolutely perfect place to stay for vacation. The kitchen is well stocked to cook at the home since there are not many restaurants on the Cape, however, there is an excellent seafood market about a mile from the house. The home is beautiful and clean. We used the elevator to send luggage/groceries up/down which was quite useful. The beach is literally a 2 minute easy walk including a boardwalk from the house. The views of the ocean from the balconies are spectacular. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Brent!

Book this Home for your Vacation and Your Family will think your a Genius!
Beautiful home, quiet location, great ocean views! While it is not ocean front, even this "ocean front snob" did not feel like I missed a thing! The views are great from the top two floors, you can feel the expanse of the ocean and see/hear the waves! We had a consistent ocean breeze so that we never suffered from heat, even in August! The home layout is spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Appliances, TV, wireless all worked great. Beds and linens were comfortable, clean and in good condition.You are a short walk to a beautiful and sparsely populated beach! If you are worried about crowded beaches and Corona virus, this is the perfect retreat location for you! Your are literally a few steps from a super cute uncrowded pool! My daughters and I loved it! The subdivision has less than a dozen homes so it really feels like you have a private pool!The home is very close to a gift shop, seafood market, ice cream shop and an incredibly well stocked small town grocery store with very reasonable prices. Don't bother packing milk, beer, etc, just buy it when you get there. If your looking for exercise, there is a great bike/run path that runs along the road all the way to the State park at the end of the Cape. The State Park is a beautiful area and worth a days adventure walk.Last, but certainly not least, Brent (the owner) communicates wonderfully and is super responsive! Vacation rentals can always be a gamble, not with this place!(PS) I'm not the owner writing a review of my own house! We just had a wonderful time and we are glad to brag about this place!

Perfect beach house!!
This house was perfect for our stay at Cape San Blas! Everything was updated and modern. It was spacious enough for 10 and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need for a week's stay at the beach! The views from the great room/kitchen are amazing!! The pool was convenient as was the short walk to the beautiful beach. Brent Craig is a gracious and responsive host. We loved this house and have already booked it for summer 2021!

Beautiful Home with Great Location
We loved our stay at Craigs’ Coastal Cottage in Cape San Blas. The house was BEAUTIFUL, fully updated, great layout, amazing view, and right across the street from the pool. The short walk to the beach was easy and convenient. We had an amazing vacation!

Great home on Cape San Blas
We stayed at Craig’s Costal Cottage the week of July 4th and had an amazing time. The house was everything we could have asked for and the nicest we have stayed at. The home has everything you could want inside plus a pool directly across the street a VERY short walk to the beach and a driveway where you can park your boat (for those of us that take theirs down). Great views of the gulf!Cape San Blas, Port St Joe, Mexico Beach and the forgotten coast are returning. While not everything is back there are plenty of restaurants and other amenities available. The beaches and water are as amazing as they have ever been. Take advantage of it. Support their economy and have a great vacation.Brent was fantastic to rent from and delivered on everything. I will rent from him again!

Wonderful Beach House
Brent is an incredibly responsive, helpful host from booking to check-out. The place is beautiful, has outstanding views despite not being right on the beach, and is such a short walk away from the sand and water. It is well-decorated, well-kept, and a beautiful, relaxing place to stay. The area offers a lot of interesting things to do in nearby towns, good food, and places to walk around. We had a wonderful stay!
