About the owner: Brian and I are originally from a suburb of Chicago, Batavia, IL. We moved up to the Northwoods of Wisconsin in 2010. We fell in love with Cape San Blas back in 2010 on our first trip! We built our dream home in 2015/2016 with the hopes of retiring there someday!
Why this property? Where else can you enjoy the most gorgeous beach from any window facing the gulf? Or relaxing in the hammock by your own private pool? Experience all that No Shoes Nation has to offer!!!!

Guestbook comments from the host:
Wonderful trip! View from the house was beautiful. The beach was perfect for our dogs. House had everything we needed. The pool was a good size and we spent a lot of time in that area. Highly recommend.
Everything about the house is top of the line. The property was so nice and the owner was easy to get ahold of if you had any questions and very accommodating. We definitely plan on coming back and renting this house again!!
The Beach House was everything a family could expect and more for a laid back time away from it all. Our Family enjoyed the spacious home, the beautiful view of the beach from the porches and the just right sized pool. I hope we can stay there again in the future.
We chose this area because we wanted to have family come together to have a memorial for my sister who had passed away. We also had another part of the family renew their wedding vows. This was the perfect spot. The owner did everything to help us pull off the memorial by helping us choose a florist to create a beautiful biodegradable wreath we floated off into the ocean. She was very kind and considerate. The house was amazing! Loved the views. Loved the decor. They really did a great job with everything! We loved the people and food at Scully's Low Country Boil, which was 2 seconds down the road. Great food, great people!! We will definitely be visiting Cape San Blas again!! Thanks Suzanne!! The Arredondo's
Lovely home eith beautiful view. Family had a wonderful time.
All we needed was our tank tops and flip flops!
No Shoes Nation was exactly what we needed! Tastefully decorated inside and out. They have plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers etc, and included a great cart to haul everything to the beach. When we didn't feel like a beach day, we loved hanging at the pool and tiki bar, perfect addition to the already packed amenity home. There was plenty of room to hang out as a family, (2 adults, 1 teen & our four legged girls) and several outdoor seating areas if you wanted some "me" time. We were able to grill from the top balcony while watching sunsets and dolphin watching. Any questions or concerns we had were immediately answered by the owners.

We had a great time at No Shoes Nation! The house was great and had a wonderful view of the Gulf. The overall theme of the property really made it feel like a vacation resort with the tiki bar, pool, Cornhole game, etc. Having the main living space on the top floor was great to be able to see the beach and sunsets while we were getting dinner. The owners/managers were very responsive to any concerns and the beach access was beautiful.

Thank you so much Jeff! We are so happy you felt NSN had a resort vibe.....we strive to make our guests overall experience comfy with a coastal feel! Our management team is the best! They always go the extra mile! Our gulf views really are gorgeous and relaxing to take in. So glad you all had a great vacation getaway! Love to have you back anytime!
No Shoes is no problem.
You don't need shoes. Beach is a short walk or you can watch the ocean from the decks. Pool and tiki bar area is great place to hang out after the beach. Play corn hole and cook smores. Inside the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious. Kitchen is well stocked and a lot of counter space for prepping food. Beach chairs provided along with Beach cart. Also access to kayaks which we unfortunately didn't get to use due to storms 3 of the days we were there. It is really a great house! Suzanne is great to work with.

Home away from home! We hope to have you back on your next visit to the Cape! With Our Thanks & Appreciation Suzanne & Brian
Beautiful and relaxing beach house for our family!
Our family travels to CSB every year for vacation. This is our first time staying at NSN. We thoroughly LOVED our stay and are already planning our return! We loved the short, easy walk to the beach, the beautiful private pool, tiki hut, and the fire pit!! Our granddaughters are spoiled by the private pool and don’t want to stay anywhere else!

First time vacationing on the Cape
My family and I enjoyed every second of our stay at No Shoes Nation! Suzanne and Brian are the perfect hosts! Their home is beautiful and very clean! It’s everything you’d want and need in a beach home. The beach was gorgeous. We’ve never felt sand so soft, and we’ve been to a lot of beaches. Cape San Blas is so beautiful too. And the little town of Port St Joe is charming. We loved how family and dog friendly this area is! We’d highly recommend vacationing here! The only negative for us, was that we couldn’t stay there longer. Planning on vacationing there again soon!

We LOVED this home!
We just returned from a week at No Shoes Nation Cape San Blas, FL. This home was perfect. We did a lot of cooking due to Covid and the kitchen was well stocked. It is decorated nicely thoughout. It is super pet friendly and our dogs loved their time on the top deck. The pool has a bar area, corn hole boards, and a fire pit. There was a beach wagon, chairs, umbrellas. boogie boards,floats and kayaks. The owners were very responsive to any questions and did their best to accommodate when we rescheduled, bc of Covid. If you are looking for a great family house, awesome location, and private pool THIS IS IT! We will def book again.

We just had a fantastic stay at No Shoes Nation and can’t wait to go back! Everything you could need is there at the house and then you have the beach near too! The views, the pool, the kitchen, those porches all so perfect! Want a perfect weeks vacation? Go here! Be sure to eat at Skully’s -yum. Be sure to watch a sunset- beautiful. Be sure to look up at the night sky- twinkles forever! Enjoy! We sure did! Thanks so much to Suzanne and Brian! Y’all rock! P.S. Our dog, Tango loved it all too! He gives it 5 paws!

The very moment we saw the house and beach, I turned to my husband and said we are coming back here!!
Everyone in the family agreed that our vacation to Cape San Blas (CSB) and the "No Shoes Nation" house was the best family vacation we ever had!! The house is beautiful and located right by the beach. It was super clean and decorated just like you would want a beach house to be. In addition to the beautiful kitchen, the dining room, living room and bedrooms/bathrooms were gorgeous. Two of the bedrooms had a porch attached so that you could sit outside and enjoy the view of the beach. But the family tended to congregate on the upper level porch just off the kitchen. There were elevated Adirondack chairs with foot stools that were perfect for sitting and enjoying the view, reading or just enjoying everyone's company."No Shoes Nation" has its own pool, patio and pool bar. In addition, there is a hammock, games for everyone to play (inside and outside) and a fire pit. We were able to have a fire most nights, make smores and extend our time together as a family.The beach is spectacular. We have been to Hawaii, Tahiti, the Caribbean and other beautiful beaches. The Cape San Blas beach rivals any of them. Since CSB is basically a residential area without hotels, you do not have the crowds or commercialism you find at many other beach vacation spots. We loved it!! We are already talking about when we can go back there as a family and I have been texting and emailing friends about going to CSB and "No Shoes Nation"!! I would not hesitate to recommend and frankly "rave" about this place!!

Beautiful Beach House on Cape San Blas
We just got back from our second visit to No Shoes Nation and will definitely be going back. When we arrived the home was spotless, even with "sanitized" strips on the toilets. This nicely decorated house has everything you need without being cluttered and has a beautiful view from every window. Just sitting on the raised Adirondack chairs and taking in the gulf views was amazing. We enjoyed playing in the ocean and pool, biking, kayaking in the bay, and dining at Joe Mama's, The Owl and Provisions. One other good thing to know, you can order your groceries online (Piggly Wiggly) and pick them up on your way in. I was sad to leave this gorgeous place but am taking comfort in knowing I can go back again next summer.

Our Family (4 adults and 2 children) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "No Shoes Nation". This Home has everything a family needs for a fun, active or restful time. Suzanne and Brian are very responsive and helpful, you can tell that they truly want you to enjoy their Home. The pool was perfect for our Family as was the short walk to the beach (which you can see from the Home's Porch). The Porch is a great place to have your morning coffee! The Owners have also planted a number of beautiful plants around the Home, which add to your enjoyment.I would highly recommend this Home and the Owners. We hope to be back again soon.
