Guestbook comments from the owner:
We picked Cape San blas because we wanted some piece and quiet . It was as expected, very peaceful area. Our Townhouse was very nice & had all that we needed for a comfortable stay. We typically do not cook in very much at all but due to Covid-19 we did more than we usually do and we had what we needed. Communication with Ms. Walker was very good for all items. We thank you for sharing your home with us.
We enjoyed our visit- the Cape is a beautiful, quiet spot to vacation. We watched a few sunsets on the boardwalk along the bay across the street. We rented bikes one day and kayaks and stand up paddleboards another day from Happy Ours, just across the street a ways. You do have a bit of a walk to the gulf from this house, and the front porch can be a little noisy with road traffic. Overall it's a nice little house.
This was a great place to unplug and recharge. We wound up going to the big rocks where the water was crystal clear - it’s a 5 min drive.
Good location, communication with owner was excellent. Plenty of amenities in home. Private beach was nice. New boardwalk to it m case it easier. Hubby and son did some fishing there but not the prettiest sand/water when you can go just couple minutes ( literally less tan 5 minutes) to where the rocks start and use any of the 3 public beach accessed and enjoy nicer water/beach. Enjoyed walking on private beach in morning and at sunset though.
We enjoyed our stay. The home was nicely equipped and convenient to town and to the state park. The board walk across the street has a great view of the bay.
We drove from Mississippi for our first trip to Port St. Joe. Tha Kingfish offered an enjoyable stay and convenient location. I would certainly recommend staying here.
