|The condo far exceeded our expectations in location, space, comfort, cleanliness, amenities and more! This was our first trip to Cape San Blas and I spent a good amount of time researching places to rent – I cannot recommend Wendy’s property enough!!|
My husband and I are in our mid 30’s and brought our 2-year-old labradoodle for her first visit to the ocean – it was a 9 hour trip from Nashville, and as we rounded the bend to the Cape and saw the houses and water – we were immediately hooked. The directions to the condo were easy to follow, the keypad made entrance easy, and we were surprised at how spacious it was! Here are a few highlights: – You can’t be much closer to the beach than if you were right on top of the waves. Just steps from the door and you’re at the pool or on the sand.
The beach itself is PERFECT – you’re at the northern part of the Cape and each day we walked a little to the left and had the entire space to ourselves – day and night. The views, the sand, the water, the sunsets are just perfect. – I visited the pool just once in the late afternoon to read and it’s beautiful and comfortable overlooking the ocean. – We were able to find “Tradin Post” market for beer, wine, and a last-minute pizza for dinner one night. We also bought food there to cook, and went to Cone Heads for drinks and food several times – it’s right across the street from the condo area!
One day we went to the state park just to the left of the condo entrance and rented a canoe to roam around the crystal clear waters. Another day we drove to the tip of the Cape and hiked to the abandoned shrimp boat, where we watched a fisherman bring in a shark and release it – *warning that there were CRAZY amounts of flies that I may never forget, but that sounds typical in Sept/Oct in that area – it’s where the tree stumps are and about a mile hike in.
The entire trip was spent relaxing – we swam, caught 10+ crabs with the nets, explored the Cape and started planning our next trip. The deck on the condo is perfect for pre-sunset dinner – and the star-watching and sunsets on the beach are incredible! Bring plenty of sunscreen, a beach blanket or two, a beach umbrella and you’re set!
