Guestbook comments from the manager

Pelican View is absolutely the best of the best! Oh, my goodness! Having your first cup of coffee in the mornings on the balcony of the master suite was amazing! And so easy since we had the lovely "coffee station" right in the suite.....very thoughtful!

This was our 5th trip to the Cape and we honestly didn't even consider booking with anyone else. We've really come to appreciate all the extras that you include, the way you have simplified the check-in and check-out procedures, the beautiful, immaculate condos and, of course, the gorgeous, uncrowded beach!

Maisie, our little Westie, had a great time! She loves the beach (and just looks so adorable because she is the exact color of the white sand!) Our friends (many of whom are more familiar with Panama City and Destin) simply cannot believe that we put our "beach stuff" out on Saturday when we arrive and don't bring ti in until we have to leave for home. It just doesn't get much better than that....

Our 2 sons and their lovely wives were able to join us this year. Although we all live within 30 minutes of each other, we seldom have time to just relax and be together. One evening we bought some fresh shrimp and prepared a wonderful scampi with angel hair pasta. We all ate together out on the deck as the sun was setting. There was a nice breeze and we had such a good time laughing and talking over one another. That is a memory I will always cherish...

Every year we think we've had the best vacation ever and this year was certainly no exception. We can't wait to get back to the Cape!

Thank you for everthing you continue to do to make our experience enjoyable and stress-free. We'll be in touch as soon as we know how our schedule looks for next time.

Again, many, many thanks!

The condo is lovely with some nice upgrades this year. The Gulf view is worth the trip: ever-changing, always inspiring!

Owner's Response: There is nothing finer than watching the dolphins in the gulf from bed or while watching TV in the living or grilling your catch of the day on the back deck.

We have 6 direct beachfront rentals in Barrier Dunes! So glad you enjoyed Pelican View this trip! We'll look forward to having you back again!

Cap San Blas is PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Our week spent at Cape San Blas was perfectly amazing. The condo was fantastic and you and Donna could not have been more of a pleasure to work with. We look forward to returning as quickly as possible! I also plan to recommend to all of our friends to look to you for a beautiful place to vacation. It was our pleasure to be a part of your home as it felt so much like we had belonged long before arriving. We really appreciated the little extras like the high chair, play pen, beach toys and chairs too! See you soon! :)

Exactly What We Wanted!!

So sorry to be so long getting back to you.....just really busy at home after being gone for a few days!!! Our trip to the Cape was absolutely fantastic! The Pelican View was awesome and had everything we needed. We had problems with the master suite air conditioning unit, but Donna was right on it after we called....she is GREAT!! My husband enjoyed the trip very much....many changes but all GOOD!! We had one stormy day, but we went "exploring" in Port St. Joe, Indian Pass, Apalachicola, & St. George Island. Ate at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and at Boss Oyster House in Apalachicola--both places were AWESOME!!! Nothing like fresh raw oysters, fresh steamed shrimp, and bay scallops!! We went horseback riding on the beach with "Two-Bit" and they were great....beautiful horses....lots of fun! Being on the Cape with the beach literally at our back door (and having the beach practically ALL to ourselves) was so amazing....we got to see several pods of dolphins swim by one morning RIGHT in front of us!! Must have been at least 14-16 of those beautiful creatures! All in all I have to say this is one of the BEST vacations ever....we will definitely be back! Thank you SO much for all your attention to details, your timely responses to emails, and for helping us plan and experience such a wonderful vacation!
