Property Details

Updated: May 22, 2015
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The views from this gulf front home are unbelievable! Walk off our deck and

you are on the beach! No shared boardwalks or community access for your

family to haul all your stuff. Set it, leave it, and enjoy.

This 3/2 beach front condo(quadraplex)has been renovated using

austrailian cypress flooring, tongue and groove ceilings, luxurious linens,

new bedding, carpet, bath, fireplace, and furnishings. The sun sets directly

over the ocean right in front of this unit for the most spectacular

sunsets you have ever seen! Every room in this home has unobstructed

views of the ocean as well as the sound of the waves on the beach.

You can literally sit on your deck relaxing while watching your kids

in the sand/surf.

The master bedroom has a King size bed and private bath. The second

bedroom has a queen bed while the third bedroom has two twin beds.

There also are two double futons in the living room giving you ample

sleeping space. The kitchen comes fully equipped and there is a full

size laundry room for your convenience.

I can't tell you how incredible this beach is. Voted #1 beach in all

of America. White sand beaches, dolphins playing daily in the ocean,

loggerhead turtles, awesome St. Joesph's State Park (where my kids

find sand dollars the size of dinner plates). The bay which is

located directly across from this home has crystal clear water which

you can wade in and see sting ray, sand dollars, fish, crabs,

scallops and all other kinds of sea life.

With all this being said I saved the best for last. You can still

drive on the beach, ride horses and have bonfires! We have fished

right in front and caught dinner and then cooked it on the beach.

This definitely is Old Florida, no crowds, beautiful sand/water,

complete relaxation. Your going to love it!

Pets are negotiable ONLY during Fall, Winter and Spring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed a week at Beach Blast and from the moment we arrived we were relaxed and felt at home in the Mills condo. The colors that Kelly used make it look and feel like a resort and the views are absolutely off the chart. we have vacationed all over the Gulf coast and this is hands down our favorite spot for now on! Enjoy coffee in the morning and watch the nearly empty beach and dolphins until you are ready to get in the water. The waves were great for the first two days because of the storm out in Texas, so I got to surf and enjoy getting pounded by the ocean! The remainder of the week it returned to the Gulf waters we all know and love--crystal clear-blue-green and warm. Since this is a dog friendly beach, we brought our 3rd child Lilo who made friends on the beach and enjoyed it as much as we did. At night we enjoyed cooking on the deck and in Kelly's large kitchen, which has every concievable appliance and tool needed. Cape San Blas is a gem if you want to get away from it all. No stop lights, no fast food, no Publix, no Quick Trip and if you unplug the TV you can convince the kids that there is no cable TV out there too! At night you can hear the waves outside. I have not slept so well on a vacation! You know it is a good vacation when you are already talking about what dates to return! BEACH BLAST, we miss you and will see you soon!

My wife and I have had one of the best vacations we have ever had. Peace and quiet. Only bad thing is the 27 steps. Place is real clean and every bedroom has a fantastic view of the Gulf. You look out the window and swear you are on a cruise ship. Front deck is one of the best in the area as it gets mid morning sun all the way thru sundown. The Mills have gone out of there way to accommodate all kinds of vacationers with Beach Blast. Shell hunters delight. If you feed seagulls you can actually name special ones. I think a few might follow us back to Ohio. The Grill in Apalachicola has some of the best food in the area. It has been there for over 100 years so I guess they know what they are doing. We would recommend this to anyone wanting a super nice hassle free vacation without all the houpla of big cities. If this place had an elevator it would be heaven on Earth. You can hear the waves 24 hours a day. Front deck is less than 50 feet from the Gulf.

Owner's Response: We are the second story to a Gulf front home. The stairs are broken down with 5/6 steps then a landing. There are 4 seperate landings. The excersise REALLY makes your cold beverage taste wonderful;-) Beach blast itself is all on one level once you arrive. These guests were awesome and hope to have them back soon!!!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent the month of November 2014 in this vacation rental. This was a much needed trip as my wife is a cancer patient. The quiet surroundings and the beautiful Gulf view was exactly what we needed at the time. The local people were so nice and we were close to some very good eating establishments. Enjoyed the walks on the beach and shelling. Got in lots of surf fishing although I didn't catch much. Members of my family and a few friends visited us while we were there. My three grandaughters were there at Thanksgiving and I treated them to a horseback ride on the beach. Had the privilege of meeting the owners Gary and Kelly Mills at Thanksgiving and they were a joy to meet. If my wife's health will hold up we would certainly like to return there again somewhere down the road. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone wishing to visit the Cape San Blas area.

Great Property

Fiance and I just back from a week at the Cape. Couldn't have been more perfect. Place was clean and presented as advertised. Perfect beach house on the perfect beach. Owners very easy to deal with and offered a ton of suggestions on what to see, eat, and do. All that were dead on too. Would recommend and return again and again.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 8 wonderful nights at Beach Blast. The place is beautiful and well kept, we had a very peaceful, relaxing vacation. The owners supply more than just the basics and answered every question I had. I do have to agree, there are a lot of steps but our legs got used to them by the end of the week and the view is well worth it, the pictures of the sunsets while we sat on the deck and had dinner and cocktails were phenomenal! We walked a couple miles each way and only saw 3 other houses closer to the beach than we were. It was awesome, Thank you. (FYI - I would recommend for people over 55 if you are in good shape to handle the stairs)

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our experience at Beach Blast was excellent, and the owners were very pleasant to deal with. The previous reviews are correct in that the beach is literally steps away. As a family of four with two small kids, the seclusion of the area and the quietness of the property was exactly the getaway we were looking for. Beach Blast is centrally located along the Cape. About a half-mile in both directions there are convenience stores with the basics - one of which has a small cold section with fresh meats and seafood. The location is a 5 to 10-minute drive from the state park, which offers lots of recreational options, including a pristine beach about a quarter mile hike from the edge of the wilderness area. We had a great time during our week long stay, and we would definitely consider returning in the future.

We took a large group of 35 people to the Cape for a wedding and rented all four units. We had the most wonderful stay... we took our chairs and beach essentials down to the beach the first day and left them all week. We had incredible weather, amazing sunsets, and the most beautiful secluded stretch of beach. Plan ahead your shopping so you can stay on the cape and just run to the local quick shops for the essentials. The units are all stocked with your kitchen essentials which made cooking at home a snap. For a large group we did not feel cramped and everyone had their own space which was fantastic.
We had a wedding on the beach which was absolutely beautiful, neighbors even set off surprise fireworks! We had several fires on the beach at night which allowed us to stay right where we were well after the sun set.
I'm not a traveler that likes to return to the same places but we definitely plan on going back. The condo owners provided great local information and there is plenty for everyone to do in the area. Hope you book and have a great time!
