Cape Escape I: Great Getaway, clean & cozy rental

Hubby and I had a great escape to Wendy’s Cape Escape 1 on Cape San Blas.  Her reservation, packing info, and check-in information was clear and easily followed. The rental home was immaculately clean and very cozy.  The AC temp of the home was perfect.  The walk to the beach was short and easy, equivalent to a typical city block.

The beach chairs supplied with the unit in the carport were lighter and more easily carried to the beach than the camp chairs we brought – much appreciated. When we grew tired of bobbing and swimming in the gulf and lounging on the beach, and wanted to retire to “home” Cape Escape, the back porch was our preferred hang out place.

It is situated facing NorthEast, so lounging there from mid-morning on into hot afternoon means shade and breezes. Plus it is surrounded by palm trees that further shade and give some privacy – and the birds nesting in the trees were interesting to watch.  Delightful.

We enjoyed grouper and scallops dinner at Provisions, 15-minute drive inward to Port St. Joe. Note: Basically all Cape San Blas properties along the entire cape involve steps… lots of them. The homes are on sturdy stilts, with the living quarters a full flight above the parking space, and another flight or 2 typically to bedrooms.  Accessing the beach here also involves steps up and over the sand dunes, so including this note for renters looking to bring mobile limited family/friend members.  Thanks Wendy for a great get-away!
