Guestbook comments from the owner:
We are posting past reviews from some our guest. You can see more handwritten scanned reviews on our website - we try to scan them so you can see with your own eyes what people are saying about our homes. Since this is so time consuming we can only do it periodically so keep checking back with us.
McCosh is hands-down the nicest home we've rented. Beautifully decorated, well-stocked kitchen, the owners spared no expense with the appliances, furnishings, and decor. Tile and granite everywhere. Views are amazing, and the deck furniture is awesome. The location is quiet, and the house has a private marked walkway to the beach (we had no issues with anyone else using the walkway). The community pools are well-maintained and beautiful. The location on the beach is low-density, and although all the homes around us were rented the beach was uncrowded and serene. This is definitely the place to go to get away from it all!
We've been to Cape San Blas many times and love it there. This is our first time staying in McCosh Beach and we hope to go back. It was a great house with all that our family of 5 needed to have a fantastic week. We usually stay further down on The Cape, but really liked the location of this house. Even being there the week of July 4th the beach was not near as crowded as some other spots that we walked by during our daily treks down the beach. Plus, having the Scallop Cove within walking distance was really nice - we were able to walk over for the occasional needed item or an ice cream cone.
had never been to Cape San Blas before and it was exactly what I was looking for. I really wanted to rent a beach house at a place that wasn't crowded with condos and strip malls and that is certainly the case here. The house itself is well-furnished and I can't think of anything that we were lacking. Furthermore, it was very clean. Really enjoyed sitting in the chairs on the upper deck and watching the sunsets. The beach itself was not overly crowded and we spent multiple days simply relaxing there. The outdoor shower is a great touch that keeps you from tracking beach sand into the house. We cooked ourselves most of the week but we had very good meals at the Sandy Bucket and Provisions (in PSJ). We also ate at Coneheads during the Tropical Storm which was an experience (food was good, roofing not so much). Bottom line, my family had a very good time and our guests loved it. As for the arrangements with Teresa both in booking the property and then on arrival, it was easy. Would definitely recommend and will likely book again.
We had a wonderful time here. Teresa was wonderful to work with. I called and let her know what I was looking for and she delivered. This place was perfect. I've been coming to the Cape since I was a teenager. It has changed some. Keep it like it is, please! Love that we can still find a place for families and not be so over crowded. Only thing I didn't like was the steps are tiled. Coming in with wet feet from the beach or pool. I have twin four year old boys and this was a concern for me. May not be for others. Other than that there were no complaints. My husband caught lots of fish and even a baby shark while fishing. We will be back! Thank you again, Teresa for sharing this lovely home with our family!
This was probably the cleanest and well decorated property we've ever rented on VRBO. My wife, the dog, and I really enjoyed McCosh. It was our second time to CSB so we knew the pros and cons of the area. There isn't much to do on CSB which forces you to enjoy the beautiful beach and relax to the sound of the ocean. The only bar/restaurant on CSB is ConeHeads. During our visit they were closed for renovations. Who renovates at the peak of spring break? This property is a short walk to Scallop Cove, a convenience store/gas station. That's also where you can rent darn near anything you didn't bring i.e bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and so much more. You will want to do your grocery shopping in Port St. Joe at the Piggly Wiggly. While the house is stocked with all of the utensils, dishes, and small appliances there are no spices, tin foil, paper plates, storage baggies etc. Our rental company did a good job of letting you know what to bring. If you forget something or you are not in the mood for what you bought, you can buy many grocery items at the Trading Post or scallop cove. Both have a surprisingly broad selection and the prices are really not that bad. I would caution people/pets who are not able to do stairs about this house. The kitchen and main living area are on the top floor and there are A LOT of stairs. At age 50 our calf and thigh muscles got a work out. The reward for doing all of the stairs is you get incredible views from every room in the house. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend it to others.
Stayed a week from 4/21/2018. Perfect place - clean, roomy, breezy, beautiful view, white sand beach, bike rental across the road, terrific location for starting local explorations, close enough to PSJ for shopping, house hunting etc. Lovely area. Found a great Realtor Eli Duarte at Coastal Realty Group just down the road. If only the fish liked our bait better...
We enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful home: the cleanliness, the quiet location, the views from every window and porch, the comfortable furnishings, the sound of the waves, the way the sun played upon the water....even the stairs in this 'upside down' house. Everything worked, the house was fresh, with very well stocked kitchen, nice modern bathrooms. This is not a house that shows any wear and tear from heavy beach use and long exposure to salt air. Loved Antonio's on the Bay for romantic and delicious sunset dinners (twice!) and the Sandbucket down the road for lunchtime bbq. Discovered the Donut Man late in our visit or would have gained 10 pounds-delicious. We highly recommend Cape San Blas for a quiet, get-away from it all week, and the McCosh house for a worry free, easy home away from home. Thank you, Terri and Teresa, for a perfect week. We hope to return again and again!
Have stayed at the Cape many times and this is the first house we have repeated a stay. Love the location, the easy access to the pool, the easy access to the beach and the house is very nice and comfortable. We also love working with Teresa and Terri. They really take the time to answer any questions and I love how their price is all inclusive. I refuse to believe ok with a company now who has a booking price plus four or five extra fees. I also think Teresa�s Besch Homes have the best prices.
McCosh is an excellent property. It is very thoughtfully designed and furnished. Clean and well-appointed, very nice kitchen with an ample stock of dishes and cooking utensils. The views are amazing. We really lucked out as houses on either side for at least 2 down on either side were not occupied. The 3 houses on the other side of the pool area were also empty. Sometimes we felt as if we had a private beach. The boardwalk to the beach is new and in good condition. The house has a charcoal grill and the store room has chairs and toys, although I understand these can change. We made good use of the outside hose and shower to wash our beach shoes and dog leash. Like the entry way bench as a place to leave the dog leash and beach sandals. The bedrooms are on the second floor. King bed in master BR is very comfortable. Good closet and dresser space. Master bath and hallway bath are all new and very functional. On the way up to the living room/kitchen level is a small deck facing the community pool and the bay. The main level is one of the best I have stayed at. Very open, comfortable, and tastefully done. My husband took a liking to the red lantern! Love the windows facing the Gulf and also windows in kitchen and over open stairs that face the Bay. I found the high captain chairs on the decks a treat, since I could see over the railings! Has a powder room on this main level. The internet and cell phone service work well, which is not always the case on CSB. Great spot on the beach for watching the daily dolphin parade. They came so close to the beach! We ate at Sandy Bucket twice and at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Great shrimp at both. Wonderful quality BBQ at Sandy Bucket, better quality meat than at my favorite BBQ places in Birmingham. Live music at the Raw Bar. Just a fun place, even in the rain. The Trading Post has everything you need and the Hunt Brothers pizzas are actually a good thin crust pizza. Visit the State Park for sure. The shops on Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe are fun to go through. Theresa has a very nice book in house that describes restaurants and things to do in the area. There are also magazines, crossword puzzle books, and some games. There are multiple TVs (although we only turned it on once). Seems the cable channels differ on each of the TVs, so this was a little confusing, but we found what we wanted to watch. This is one of my very favorite places to stay. Theresa was easy and pleasant to work with.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the boardwalk?
50 feet with stairs at the end
Are the beaches pet friendly to?
Yes, gulf county does have a leash law and dogs must be leashed at all times and we do require for all to scoop the poo
My family and I loved McCosh. The teenagers enjoyed the pool and being close to the store. They went daily and got an ice cream. The house was very clean and the views from the covered decks was spectacular. We will definitely be going back to this house,
