Why Kids Love It
Kids love, love, love the pool. The beach is fun for building sandcastles, collecting seashells and chasing sand crabs.
Cape San Blas is like going back in time; Old Florida at its best. Sunset Pointe is a private gated community near the tip of the Cape and very near the lovely St Joseph Peninsula State Park. Sunset Pointe is quiet and family friendly. It offers a community pool with pool house and the beautiful Cape San Blas beach which was ranked #1 beach by Dr. Beach in 2002. The Cape continues to be considered one of the top beaches in America. There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere nearby; just simply miles of pristine beaches and large dunes!
As you stroll along the quiet beach, you can collect a variety of seashells or just enjoy watching the dolphins swim by or eagles and osprey scouting for prey. Of course, swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, kayaking or fishing in the surf are also a favorite. Explore St. Joseph Peninsula State Park just minutes away with its nature trails, huge natural dunes, fishing, and abundance of birds.
You may want to rent bikes and golf carts to cruise on the many miles of bike paths or kayaks and motor boats to explore the bay, gulf, many waterways or fresh water lakes. Or you may prefer sunset horseback riding on the beach as it can also be conveniently arranged. St. Joseph Bay Country Club open to the public is only a few miles away offering a golf course along with tennis. For water exploration there are five separate boat ramps within a few miles offering access to St Joseph's Bay, Apalachicola Bay, St. Vincent’s Island National Park, Lake Wimico for large mouth Florida Bass and many other waterways.
You can catch blue crabs, throw your cast net for shrimp, collect Apalachicola Bay Oysters or go scalloping in nearby St. Joe Bay. Enjoy these delicacies or freeze them for your return home.
If you're not in the mood to cook, there are a number of great, local restaurants and night spots nearby. The famous Indian Pass Raw Bar is just a few miles away, offering the area's delicious oysters, shrimp, gumbo and often featuring live entertainment and dancing. It is just 20 minutes to the historic and quaint fishing town of Apalachicola. Here you will find some great shopping as well as many restaurants offering the worlds best seafood along with night spots. Walk the boardwalk and see what catch the fishing boats have brought in for the day or visit the charming shops. The village of Port St. Joe is 15 minutes away with numerous shops and restaurants; a good place to stock up on all of the provisions you'll need.
Favorite Places To Eat
Skully's Low Country Boil, Provisions restaurant, The Owl Cafe, Indian Pass Raw Bar, Sand Bucket BBQ, Peachy's Beach Eats, Joe Mama's Wood Fired Pizza, and the Sanddollar Cafe. Cape Tradin' Post is great for steakburgers and pizza on the go. Weber's doughnuts are a must.

About the owner: We are Bob and Rhonda Toler of CottageRents. We designed and built our homes for guest enjoyment and comfort. Bob’s background is architectural engineering and professionally built homes in Birmingham, Alabama. We have enjoyed the Cape for years and love to share this special place with others. It is our pleasure to extend Sunset Point Cottage for your seaside vacation.
Why this property? We visited this peaceful beach lot with rolling sugar white sand dunes for a long time before we were able to acquire this land to build our home. This new construction house is designed for each member of your family and friends to enjoy privacy as well as gathering together at one of the most serene and relaxing beaches on the gulf. We built this house for "keeps" and wanted it to be well constructed, well equipped, charming and classic for timeless enjoyment year after year.
We love the natural beauty and uncrowded environment. Sunset Pointe at Secluded Dunes is a lovely private community with large rolling dunes and a beautiful beach adjacent the state park at the tip of the peninsula. Cape San Blas is a place where you can escape hectic schedules and stresses to unwind, relax and refresh yourself.
Guestbook comments from the host:
We have been vacationing in the outer banks for 20 years. After being chased out by Hurricane Florence last year we decided to try somewhere new. The Florida forgotten coast was chosen and we were not disappointed! The blue calm warm water gave the whole family the opportunity to enjoy the ocean. The beautiful home provided by Bob and Rhonda just enhanced the experience. The kitchen was well equipped, it was nice that beach towels were provided. The pool was a great place to wind down after a day playing in the sand. We rented kayaks and paddle boards from the Scallop Cove, ate everything Peachee’s has to offer and loved it all and found the Trading Post a great place to go for all the grocery items we forgot to get at the Piggly Wiggly. It was a family vacation to remember!
This is the best house we’ve ever stayed at. It is a really beautiful and well maintained property both inside and out. It has everything you might want and need. The owners are very welcoming and approachable too. Our family had a fantastic time. You can never get tired of the amazing views from every angle of the house ! Also the uncrowned beach makes you feel like you are on your own private piece of paradise! Highly recommended!
Property is filled with all the extras. Plenty of cookware, tons of outdoor items to go to the beach with, perfectly located on the quietest part of the beach. Beds and pillows were extremely comfortable, house was completely accomodating. Nothing but the best to say about this property.
From the moment our family walked into this beautiful accommodating home until our time was up we had a fantastic time! The house was clean and everything we Needed was there. Loved the view from the upper floor. Sort of looked as if we were on a cruise ship. We spent a lot of time on the upper deck. Dennis and I are real beach people so we were on the beach most days enjoying the sun and surf. Our Grandsons body surfed and ran the beach. The pool was also perfect. We did have an issue with the pump but a pool company came quickly after I called. One day all the boys went on a guided fishing trip in the bay and caught most of our dinners for the week. So yummy.
We made many wonderful Family memories. Who knows we may be back.
Loved Sunset Cottage. Want to stay next year with you.
Will contact to set up when we want to rent.
This beautiful, peaceful house was exactly the vacation my family needed after a year filled with so many challenges. The experience was all that we had hoped it would be.
This beach house has everything you need! First of all, the house is gorgeous and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking utensils, plenty of dinnerware, silverware, cups, glasses, serving bowls and even storage containers for leftovers. The beds and pillows were very comfortable! All the bedrooms and the great room face the ocean, which is very rare, and allowed us to enjoy some beautiful sunsets from the deck. The pool was perfect for the kids as well as the adults. Pool toys galore! And plenty of chairs and lounges. We put the grill to good use too!! The beach is wonderful and very quiet and private, which we enjoyed immensely. A quick walk down the boardwalk (a few feet from the house) and you're on the beach.
This is the first time my family has had the opportunity to vacation together and we couldn't have chosen a better property. Thank you, Bob and Rhonda Toler, for sharing your home and giving us a lovely place to make many wonderful memories!
The house has everything you could possibly want - ocean front, pool, clean, lots of room, quality workmanship throughout the home, and every detail inside the home has been carefully selected - down to the light switches (thankfully, this is not a builders grade home). My family and I had a very relaxing Easter week and felt like we were being spoiled with the views of the beach and the sightings of the dolphins without even leaving the house. We would highly recommend this home and especially recommend our new favorite evening activity to anyone who rents this home - watching the sun set while sitting on the beach around a fire while making s'mores!
We had an amazing time spending our Spring Break in Cape San Blas. The home was as pictured, well equipped, and was very clean. We had the pool heated, which was nice on the cooler days and access to the beach was just a short walk. We enjoyed our first stay on the Cape and would recommend this property for anyone looking for a quiet beach getaway.
We have 8 Five Star Reviews on another site that our guest post reviews that we have been on since we started booking in June. We have only moved a few over due to the time involved. You are welcome to view, please request. We have not requested our guest come to this site and post as most of our booking have come from the other site.
Wonderful all around!!! Beautiful home, fantastic location, literally every room has spectacular views of the gulf (even the shower we used had a gulf great is that). Pool was perfect, beds were so comfortable we stripped it back to photo the label and will be buying one for home. Good greif, even the pillows were perfect... and we are VERY picky about beds and pillows. Could not have been any better. The pup even loved it. To top all that off, Bob and Rhonda were super accommodating. Will definitely be back!
Dear Barry and Lisa, You were so generous in your review of our home, thank you! We feel so honored that you chose our home to celebrate such a special time of your life. It has been our pleasure and we look forward to your return! Warm Regards, Bob and Rhonda
We had a wonderful week in cape San Blas! The area is very quiet and the people are extremely friendly. The house is brand new and gorgeous. It was also well equipped with towels, beach supplies, kitchen utensils and anything else you would need. While we were there a tropical storm came through, but it didn’t jeopardize our trip at all. We just enjoyed relaxing in the house. The owner of the house is very kind and accommodating. We will definitely plan a trip back!
Hi Gina, What a nice review, thank you! I am happy the storm was not a problem and you were able to relax. My experiences with tropical storms and one cat 1 hurricane is oddly actually nice. Our home is built to current Florida Hurricane standards and insulated well so it was quiet and often incredibly beautiful cloud formations. We appreciate you being our guest and would love to have you and your family return as our guest! Kind Regards, Bob and Rhonda
Sunset cottage has everything you need for a great family vacation. The owners have made it so you only need to bring your clothes and food. Top of the line everything. Beautiful home, beautiful pool, and beautiful beach. We were all sad to leave
Frank and Heather, You are very kind to send such a nice review! It’s so rewarding for us to have families as yours come together in our home making special memories. Many thanks and we would love to have you return. Best Regards, Bob and Rhonda
We were looking for a family vacation spot to relax and spend time together and this is the perfect location. The house is built to where every room has an amazing view of the ocean. As you walk up the staircase and enter the third floor, the views will take your breath away. Bob and Rhonda put so much thought into building this house to exceed everyone's expectations. It is furnished with everything you need for a vacation, from kitchen appliances and utensils to board games for children and numerous pool and beach supplies. The elevator located by the entry door makes it easy to load and unload all your belongings to the top floors. The outdoor restroom located by the pool area is definitely a plus. We enjoyed everything this home had to offer and can not wait to return to Sunset Cottage to make more memories that we will always cherish.
Hello Marty, What a nice review. Thank you! We are very honored for our home to be part of your cherished family memories. Thank you for that opportunity. We look forward to having you all return as our guest. Best Wishes, Bob and Rhonda

Jim and Beth,Thank you for your kind review. We sure enjoyed having you and your family as our guest. Have a wonderful year!Bob and Rhonda Toler CottageRents LLC
Wow! What a great vacation!
This wonderful home in Cap San Blas is a dream! Wonderful decor, fully stocked, fantastic floor plan and an outstanding location. Our two dogs and our family had a fantastic end of summer vacation and had a great time at the beach and in the pool. This home is in a lovely area of Cape San Blas that is fairly secluded with just a few other homes around, and at the end of the cape near the park at the tip. If you love a peaceful family vacation away from it all, but close enough to town when you need to be, this is your spot!
