About the Owner

John and Dawn welcome you to our home. We have been vacationing at the cape for over 18 years and have owned property on the cape for 12 years. In 2008 we purchased Cape Cottage because of its great location on Haven Rd. We are first tier but share an oversized beach front lot with 3 other homes. The boardwalk to the beach comes right to our back door making beach accessibility terrific and the screen porch is to die for. Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Dawn and John

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have been coming to the Cape for over 20 years and thank the owner Dawn and the agent Coastal Joe for making this a memorable June 19-26 vacation. Cape Cottage fitted the needs of our large family and we've made our reservations for 2011.

Beautiful Home, No complaints

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautiful, lots of room, and ample things to do. Looks just like the pictures, and the owners were very easy to deal with, and will return calls promptly. I would definitely recommend this home, and may even stay here again, if I get the chance. Thank you Dawn and John.

Peace found here

  • 5 of 5
My mother in law passed and her wish for her family was to go to the beach after her passing and celebrate her life. The owner was kind and accommodating from the beginning of the rental process. She even checked on us as we were traveling. I can't say enough kind words about her. Though griefstricken... We all made time to enjoy the beach.ans each other..which is amazing.

This area of the beach is secluded. Pretty much no traffic this time of year and the sunsets set the sky on fire from as far as can be seen on either side your face.

The home is beautiful and spacious. It has been enjoyed. There may be a scratch on the wall here and there or a scuff on the step. I love the imperfections as it is proof it has been loved and makes it more cozy and Adds character.

If you want a home in mint condition and want to feel prisoner to that... Choose another home. If you want to be comfortable and enjoy the peace every window has to offer ..the sunlit walls throughout the house and overflow of charm the owner has created with you and myself in mind...choose this house. You won't regret it. You will love it and it will love you back.
We found the spirit of our mother here as we rekindled love between us all this beautiful home in this beautiful place on Earth.

They are building a house next to ours. Already framed. Little noise and no debris. The workers did not bother us at all.

House Under Construction Next Door

  • 3 of 5
This is a great house with a nice pool and wonderful beach location; however, a house is under construction directly next to it, and we were not informed of that fact when we booked our stay. The noise is intrusive and continuous from 8 am until about 5 pm (with the exception of a lunch break), which is certainly not conducive to a peaceful, relaxing vacation. This will probably be the case for approximately the next 3 months. Other than that, the house was as described, and we would consider staying there again after the construction is completed.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry about the construction noise. This new construction home has drug out longer than normal because some weeks they work and some weeks they do not. The framing is now complete so the disturbance should be minimized. Unfortunately this is out of our control.

Our Stay Was Awesome Sauce!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and description of the property are accurate. We arrived and settled in quickly and were in the pool after dinner. The pool and beach are awesome. Dawn and John are responsive to questions. The house is clean and well stocked. The kitchen was awesome, the elevator worked, there are tons of beach toys...

My parents went with me and really enjoyed their first beach vacation. We loved the house, we loved Cape San Blas and we can't wait to return.

For those of you looking at the reviews to determine if you should rent this property. We had no issues with our stay and I would recommend staying at this home.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home worked perfectly for our family of nine and two boston terriers. My mother uses a walker and the elevator made it easy for her to enjoy the home. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the various beach toys. We had no concerns with the home and would stay here again.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
Very disappointed with the state of this home as well as lack of customer service from owners. The home was unclean when we arrived, filthy air filters (dust was actually hanging from it), stained carpet, stained sofa and love seat, horrible mattress on pull out sofa (with no mattress pad). Refrigerator never worked properly would not maintain temperature and the water dispenser leaked all week on the kitchen floor. We had to buy ice and a cooler to store our food so it would not spoil. Garbage Compactor did not work, gas grill was filthy and did not light. The pool was also filthy and cloudy all week. The second floor door handle actually fell off and owner said they would repair and did not.
Loved Cape San Blas and will definitely return but would never rent from these homeowners again. Very disappointed. These homeowners were not prepared for guests nor are they focused on customer service.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our guest had anything other than a wonderful experience at our home and with our service. This Guest arrived Saturday after 4pm(check-in time) and we received a call about 9pm stating the refrigerator was not cooling and that they had turned the fridge setting on its coldest setting. This refrigerator is less than 1 year old and we have not had one complaint with this fridge. We have had problems in the past with renters filling refrigerator with warm food and it taking 24hrs for the fridge to catch up. With this being said we have no repairmen on the Cape at 10pm on Saturday night. On Sunday morning we made a service call request, but since it would take a few days to get a repairman to the Cape we drove to Panama City and bought another fridge to put in the guest storage to make sure our guests would have a working fridge available. Sunday afternoon John and I delivered the fridge and the “problem frig” was working just fine. Our guests mentioned that the front deck door handle was stripped out but it was not a problem because they were using other doors and not to worry about the repair. The handle was repaired during the following Saturday turn so as not to interfere with our renters. Other than the fridge and door handle the guests said our home was great. We did not hear from our guests the rest of the week or until they sent this review. Unfortunately these guests left our home in filthy condition with damage and were charged accordingly. Our wonderful cleaners were able to have our home ready for arriving guests by 4pm. PS: both refrigerators are working just fine and there are now two refrigerators at this home.
We strive to go above and beyond the needs of our guests to make sure every experience is as good as it can be.
John and Dawn


From the Owner

We chose this home because we wanted to be away from the busy roads and congested neighborhoods. We wanted to be first tier to better protect our home from the wear and tear of those gulf wind.
