About the owner: Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love visiting Cape San Blas. The relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the area keep us coming back year after year.
We visited Cape San Blas for the first time in 2001 and immediately fell in love. The water was perfect, the beaches weren't crowded and we could bring our dog. We especially like the North end of Cape San Blas because it is especially quiet. The amazing T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park is so close to the house and the dune structure on that beach is like none you have ever seen.
Carrie will be managing your stay at Sweet Necessity and she can be a bit of a perfectionist. That's a bonus for you, as she promises to do all she can to make your time at Cape San Blas absolutely wonderful.
We are confident you will love Cape San Blas as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions about our home or the area.

Sweet Necessity is Paradise on Earth
You will not find a better place to relax and forget all your worries than Sweet Necessity. Immaculate home, so much attention to detail, with everything you need or want for a carefree week in the sun and sand. A bonus to spending your vacation in such a beautiful home is the best homeowner/property manager you will ever deal with. Ms. Shevlin is a joy to work with! I don’t want to even think about staying at a property other than hers.

First Ever Renters of Sweet Necessity!
We travel annually from Canada and have rented many homes on the Cape. We had the pleasure of being the first renters of the newly built Sweet Necessity! This is one of the nicest properties we have rented. You can tell that Carrie, the owner, and her family have built a rental homes before and have put their years of experience into this home. The design is fantastic, open floor plan on the upper level where family and friends can enjoy the dining, kitchen and lounging area all with great beach views. Each room gives each guest the feeling of privacy and the mid floor lounge is a nice touch. Tastefully decorated for a true beach house feel. The elevator is a nice touch but the window filled stairwell is fantastic. The pool area is perfect, our girls enjoyed daily and the beach is a few steps away. We towed our boat along for our vacation and the boat ramp is 5 minutes up the road with easy access to St Joes Bay. From the two dishwashers to the beach towels for your dog Sweet Necessity has had a lot of thought put into it! Thank you to Carrie and family for the great rental experience! Eric and family.
