Area Information

Cape San Blas is a beautiful stretch of beach along Florida’s Forgotten Coast. Our shores boast of sugary white sand, uncrowded and pet friendly beaches.
The Cape rest between the Gulf of Mexico and the St. Joe Bay. You have the best of both worlds.
It is common to see dolphins at play in the surf along with many beautiful shore birds and nesting sea turtles.
In addition to several local eateries on the Cape, nearby towns of Port St. Joe and Apalachicola offer opportunities for quaint shopping and unique dining experiences.

It is highly recommended to rent a pontoon for the day and head out to the end of the Cape for a day of snorkeling and exploring the clear waters.
There are also places to rent kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and bikes.

Our home is located on the highly desirable North end of the Cape within walking distance to the Trading Post, a local market, and the delicious Shoobies Ice Cream Truck.

Cape San Blas is a place to reconnect with family, take in nature and make lasting memories.

We would love for you to be our guest

Year Purchased: 2019

About the owner: We are Lee and Mary Margaret Whitfield and we live in Brentwood, Tennessee. We have two grown sons, one sweet daughter in law and two precious granddaughters.
We ‘discovered’ the Cape in 2011 and immediately fell in love. This was the Florida we had been looking for: the forgotten, relaxed Florida. The area is full of families (including ‘fur’ babies) and natural beauty that will take your breath away. We loved the quiet beaches: no high-rises and the family-owned places to eat, shop, and play.

Guestbook comments from the owner:

From the moment we arrived we felt at home and ready for fun. There were 9 of us total. My family of 7 (5 kids ranging from 8 to 17) and my mother and father in law. The home had everything a person needs and could want. The kitchen was so well stocked. We lived being able to cook together without worrying if we had those pan, or that utensil. We made an entire Christmas ham dinner and a green chili stew along with all the other normal meals. The home also has an awesome room with an extra fridge and all the beach toys and chairs one could desire. Seriously- everything. Umbrellas, chairs, floaties, kids, sang this, boogie boards. We were literally less than 100 steps from the house to the beach. It was easy to bring down the beach toys and my in laws (who are older and have mobility issues) were able to easily walk down with us. Speaking of mobility issues- the elevator was super helpful. The kids walked to the testing post every day (that was a highlight of their time at the cape. They love that place!) We loved and they loved that they could walk to get ice cream and donuts and fresh fish. It is in the perfect location! Anyway, I've never left a review this long. The home was just so incredibly perfect. Oh, and the views! This home is in the perfect spot. Also, it has games and movies and puzzles. And- the beds were so great. My husband has back problems and the bed didn't hurt his back at all. It was also great to have 2 "master" bedrooms. This house had so much space and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Last thing- such great communication with the owners. The microwave stopped working, I texted Mary Margaret and she had a new one delivered the next day. Who does that?!!? Seriously impressed!!!

Beautiful beach home!

We enjoyed our stay at Cape Cottage and hope to return one day! The home is so comfy and has everything you could possibly need! The views are gorgeous, the pool is convenient and the beach is peaceful! We also enjoyed the ice cream stand that was right down the road.

Staying at Cape Cottage

We have stayed at Cape San Blas several times. This was the first time staying at Cape Cottage. It was the best beach house we stayed in at Cape San Blas. The house is well stocked and very comfortable. My husband is not a big beach person but enjoyed the home and using the pool nearby. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

This home is one of the best layouts for family. A lot of indoor and outdoor space. The views are beautiful and the peaceful evenings on the beach and many deck areas to set and just take in the beauty. Definitely one of the best homes that we have visited. The kitchen had absolutely everything thing we needed to prepare meals. Very clean and prompt when we alerted the owner the pool had not been cleaned it was taken care of the same day. Would love to bring my family back again!

Wonderful Home

This home was just wonderful. Steps from the beach, no shoes needed to get there. Fully stocked kitchen. Comfy beds and lots of space for our 3 families. Plenty of beach chairs and beach toys for the kids. Would definitely book this house again. Cape San Blas is a beautiful area filled with the friendlest people and plenty to do or just relax and do nothing and soak up the sun.

Wonderful beach home

We had a wonderful vacation at Cape San Blas. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. Many thanks to our hosts at Cape Cottage. The house was beautifully appointed and the owners have thought of everything. We love the kitchen and cooking equipment. There was a great desk/office nook where we could check in on virtual work if desired. WiFi was consistently strong. Top of the line smart tv’s where we could log in to all our streaming services. The elevator was super convenient to load and unload groceries and supplies. We didn’t even have to unload our beach toys from our car because there were plenty of buckets/shovels/boogie boards and even a shovel for digging a bonfire pit on the beach. Thank you for sharing your home with us!The Wolf Family from Nolensville, TN

Our favorite home on the Cape!

This was the 3rd home we have rented in CSB over the past few years and we have already booked it again for next year!!! The first tier views are amazing!! The floorplan is great for a multi-generational family (2 master bedrooms, queen room, bunk room and extra TV/teen room for the older kids). The location cannot be beat - both in convenience to the Trading Post and very short walk to the beach! It was too cold to enjoy the pool, but I know it would be appreciated in the summer heat. The house was fully stocked for cooking, the games and puzzles were appreciated (we even donated a few to the collection) and the beach gear included everything we needed! The home was very clean and comfortable and the elevator was helpful for suitcases and groceries. We truly didn't want to leave... so we booked our next trip on the drive home! Now we're just counting down the days until next Thanksgiving week! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us - we thoroughly enjoyed some much needed family time after a difficult year.

Love love love!!!

We absolutely loved this home! This was our 3rd year at the Cape and first time staying at Cape Cottage and we have already booked again for next year. The house was spotless when we arrived and had everything we needed! The views from the top porch are spectacular and was my favorite spot to sit! Last year we struggled with the biting flies so we were happy to have the screened porch option however we didn’t really need it this year due to very little to no bug issues this time but you never know. The kids loved the pool and we were only a few steps from being on the beach. The extra refrigerator and all the beach toys and chairs (nice comfortable chairs I might add) were such a blessing to have! Owners even went the extra mile and left us firewood to use and we were so thankful for that! We had a couple very minor issues but the owners took care of it right away! They were so easy to communicate with and attentive to any needs we had and I feel they went above and beyond. There were so many reasons we were more than excited to book with them again!

Cape Cottage

We spent a wonderful week at Cape Cottage!! We enjoyed the wonderful view from the decks!! Front of the house had a sunrise view over the Bay and the back decks and screened in porch were so comfortable, perfect for having our morning coffee. The inside was beautiful and very comfortable and as there were three of us ladies we loved having a bathroom for each of our bedrooms!! We really look forward to staying at Cape Cottage again

Wonderful Vacation

We had a wonderful week at your Cape Cottage. The house was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We loved the porches and decks, sunrise on the front porch and sunset on the back deck. Also really liked the easy beach access walkway!! Not too many steps and not too steep to carry our beach gear!! We look forward to booking with you again hopefully next September!!

Love this place

This was our third year in a row to stay at this house and it was just as enjoyable as our previous 2 visits. It is only a short walk to the beach and even though the pool is shared with a few other houses, it was hardly ever used. Therefore we had no problem using it when we wanted to. My favorite thing to do was to sit on the top level porch in the morning while drinking my coffee and having my quite time. You can see the beach and feel the ocean breezes. The elevator, outside bathroom, outside shower and beach toys round out the amenities to make this the perfect place to stay. It also helps that the property is less than 2 minutes to one of the local grocery stores. As well, the owner is very responsive to text messages and very flexible. We wound not want to stay anywhere else in Cape San Blas and at this point, we would not want to go to any other beach than Cape San Blas.

Great time at Cape Cottage Cape San Blas, Fl

Mary Margaret was a great host by keeping us informed about our stay from booking till we left. The house was fabulous with great views of the beach and ocean. Great location on the Cape for riding bikes to the store and especially Ice Cream and Donuts. The kids loved the pool right next to the property. This was our 5th year staying on the Cape and one of the best.

The best post COVID vaccine there is- quiet, relaxation and fresh air

This property is perfect for our large family. It's our third time in this same house, which is close to the beach, Weber's Little Donut Shop and the Cape Trading Post. The Cape is perfect for those that want to have space on the beach, without the distractions that come with more populous areas. There isn't enough space to write all the good things here! Just to say, we'll be back!

Perfect for Multiple Families

The location is amazing - only a few steps to the beach and shared pool. We enjoy having many outside seating areas to view the beautiful beach, escape the bugs on the screened porch, or have a quiet moment to yourself on the front/side porch. We ate every meal in (except 2) and had everything we needed (and more) in the stocked kitchen. There were plenty of dishes for meals not suitable for paper plates, a griddle for pancakes, pitchers for tea and fruity drinks, and a small crock-pot for making boiled peanuts to snack on. We LOVE having the refrigerator in the utility room outside for all the beverages for the week! We didn't bring our dog this year but love having that option. We will be back again and again! Mary Margaret is the best to work with as well.

Perfect vacation spot for our family!

We just got home from vacationing at Cape Cottage. Our crew included 11 people: parents, grown children with spouses, friends, and three grand boys! The room in the house and the layout gave us plenty of spaces to spread out. The house itself is beautiful and well-decorated in stylish yet comfortable beach decor.The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need! We cook a lot! The chairs and beach toys provided made our beach days so easy. Storage room, extra refrigerator, and beach/pool level bathroom and outdoor shower gave great convenience. We loved grilling downstairs while boys played. All the extra porches gave opportunities for quiet reading and viewing sunrise/sunset. Stores close by plus ice cream and doughnuts in walking distance made this place perfect. Views were amazing! The shared pool was nice. We easily parked four vehicles. Half our week included tropical storms, but we still were able to enjoy beach time each day. Must visit Tortuga Moon, the new gift shop next door to the Trading Post. Rent your bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards from Cape San Flea. He is so reasonable! I'd definitely book this house again!

Best Vacation Ever

We were so blessed to be able to spend a week at the beautiful Cape Cottage. The home was everything we could have wished for. Everything is placed exactly where you need it. It was only a few steps to the beach and the pool. Mary Margaret was a wonderful hostess and answered every question we had. We enjoyed every second of our trip to the Cape and our stay in Cape Cottage. We will definitely be back!

Exceeds our expectations each year

Convenient to beach, state park, seafood, bicycling, AND relaxation! Another enjoyable year at Cape Cottage and CSB. From the outdoor shower to the wine cooler we had everything we could have wanted. Except more time! One week whets your appetite for more.

Perfection!

I have to the many years of renting homes for vacations, there have only been a handful that I would consider staying in a second time. THIS was one of them. The location, view, bedroom arrangement, amenities were perfect! We hope to stay here again soon!

Perfect beach house!

I can’t even describe what a wonderful time we had!! House is in the most perfect location and the host has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable! Kitchen was well stocked and beds and furniture were all top notch and comfortable! The beach chairs were an added huge bonus! It’s our new favorite rental and we hope someone cancels this summer so we can go back!!

Great Christmas Getaway

Cape Cottage was a great place to end 2020. The house fit our large family perfectly. There was plenty of room and the views throughout the house windows were beautiful and the decor inside was lovely! The sunsets on the Cape were my favorite!

Cape Cottage rentals

We had a great time at a beautiful home on Cape San Blas, Fl. The place was clean and well taken care of. There is a beautiful view of the beach from the top deck. Love that we can bring our dog. I would highly recommend to stay there.

Perfect beach home, great for families and kids!

Cape Cottage never disappoints! This is our 3rd year in a row to stay in Cape San Blas at this house. The layout is perfect for our needs with a Master bed and bath on both levels, a bunk room for smaller kids and a queen room for older kids. It is a perfect location - close to the Trading Post and Weber's Donuts, and just steps away from the beach and shared pool! We are looking forward to many more family beach trips to Cape Cottage!

Relaxation Central

We used Cape Cottage as relaxation central with another family. There were 10 of us and everyone had their own space and the decor immediately relaxed us. The proximity to the beach and the Trading Post meant we weren't in the house a lot but that's what we wanted - convenience to the beach and privacy when we weren't at the beach.The house is in the middle of the Cape so it's very convenient if you're going to the state park or back into Port St. Joe. The outdoor open area was great.

Incredible house with awesome access to pool AND beach!

Wonderful and cleaned beyond COVID standards. Sunrise on one side and sunset on the other! Spacious home designed well for guests to have their space or be together! Excellent WiFi service and desk for those still trying to work! Top balcony and 2nd floor screened porch FABULOUS! Perfect rental to truly relax and feel the natural effects of beach and also enjoy activities of the area! Kitchen well equipped and extra frig downstairs is awesome. Our family enjoyed horseback riding and also renting pontoon boat for an afternoon! Owners are responsive to any need or concern and you will be happy with your choice to stay here!

Nice Home

Mary Margaret is a great hostess. Cape Cottage had a well equipped kitchen, making cooking a pleasure. This is a very nice home accommodating several families comfortably. An elevator makes moving luggage and groceries to each floor a breeze. A fabulous time was had by all!

Wonderful pet-friendly beach house

Cape Cottage was a fantastic place to stay. Everything was sparkling clean when we arrived, the kitchen was well appointed and there were plenty of beach chairs, toys etc. The house is 2nd row but it is so close to the access it feels like first row. The screened in porch was great.
