Guestbook comments from the manager


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much Julie and I enjoyed your "Home by the Sea" for our 30th wedding anniversary! Not only were the beds as comfortable as advertised (well, at least the one we used), but we could truly appreciate the amount of time and effort you put into the decor. All the little touches, from the light switch covers to the variety of beach themed pieces throughout the unit, show how much you care.

The weather was perfect and we had a chance to meet some of your neighbors. They were all very personable and welcoming to us!

We are hoping to return to the Cape in September, and will give you a call as we finalize our plans. Thanks again for a great weekend!

My wife and I enjoyed another long weekend in Cape San Blas. The location, condition and included amenities (bikes, umbrellas, chairs, etc.) make this the ideal location for us to enjoy a quick trip to the gulf. When you consider the price, it's a steal. We loved this place. Al was super easy to work with and we'll definitely be back.

A fantastic month on the Cape

  • 5 of 5
This was our first month-long vacation since retiring and we would have liked it to have been several. Best vacation ever! Cape San Blas is a fantastic destination for a quiet, laid back and relaxing vacation. Al and Susan's home made it even better. The place is beautiful, with all the amenities you can think of. The beds are wonderful and the sheets and all the linens are top quality. Fully stocked kitchen and all the other comforts of home.
The location is great, sunrises from the guest room window and fabulous sunsets from the master bedroom deck or a very short walk to the beach. The beach is made up of soft white sand and is great for sitting or long walks. We are bicycle riders and walkers, so the location was perfect. The bike path that extends the length of the Cape is just across the street. We made several trips to the State Park, which was a few minutes by car or a nice 30 minute
bike ride. There we saw many shore birds, deer and even an alligator. Highly recommend the beach in the wilderness area. After parking it is a short walk over a great boardwalk and then a trek over amazing sand dunes to a great beach.
The area is quiet, but convenient as a base for other areas. Port St Joe is a small town with great shops and restaurants (highly recommend Peppers Mexican) only 15 minutes away. For more stores and food, Apalacacola is less than 30 minutes.
Would definitely go back again and again if we have the chance.

great place for the adventuring

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the best week at Al and Susan's Home by the sea and could not think of anything that was missing from our vacation. We as a couple go to a beach every Sept. and this by far has been the best. Not only was Al just a phone call away if we needed to inquire about anything, but he had already prepped us with so much info on the area beforehand. The kitchen had everything imaginable for a couple who likes to cook as we do. The beds were the most comfortable sleeping we have encountered...even in our own bed. There were bikes, beachchairs, umbrellas, beach toys a grill..I could go on. Off the master is a deck for star gazing or during the day a great view of the beach. The local neighbors in the houses around were friendly and fun to run in to. Al and Susan know what most travellers away from home need and it is provided. We will be back and look forward to this vacation spot where you can enjoy bike paths, the bay on one side the ocean on the other and a state park a bike ride down the road. The dolphin even put on a show for us jumping up and out of the water as if they knew we were watching!

Cape San Blas is so beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back to reality after an idyllic stay at Mr. and Mrs. Kite's lovely Cape San Blas home. This was our 5th trip to CSB, but the first time staying in the Kite's home. The weather was absolutely perfect. I came back to Alabama with a huge bucket of quality seashells (Florida fighting Conchs, about 100+ lettered olives and others that I have to do research on to identify them with certainty). We visited the bay side in the state park, which is a mere $6 for an all day stay and you can come and go until sunset. There is a concession stand if you forgot anything, and there is a bathroom there as well. A visit to the bay is a must. You have to walk in the bay and bring your camera because you will want to take pictures of the sea urchins, stingrays , starfish, huge hermit crabs, huge welk, crabs, horseshoe crabs, fish galore, live sand dollars and many types of birds. We walked out for a long distance into the bay, and the water never went over my waist. The beach side is so beautiful! Bring a net for the beach side and scoop shells all day long. The Kite's house is in the perfect location! Steps from the beach, outside shower so you don't get sand all in their home and screened deck. Did I mention the beds and linens? The linens were so soft and fluffy. I even looked at the tag to see who made these. When he said the beds were comfortable, he was telling the truth! I slept like a rock! The home is equipped with a washer/dryer. Literally, the dryer dries your clothes in minutes. Bottom line is this is a quality home with quality owners who were concerned we had everything we needed. Mr. Kite makes the rental process easy. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kite for letting our family stay a week at the Cape in your home!

Home by the Sea Indeed!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Al & Susan's place July 13 - 20. The house is exactly as pictured; it is a cute two story two bedroom home. There is everything that you will need for a week's stay, from a washer/dryer to plenty of dishes/pots/pans to bikes, boogies boards, and beach toys in the shed. The two bedrooms have VERY comfortable king size beds, but the sofa and big chair in the living room also make out into beds if you need to sleep more. There were plenty of pillows and blankets for everyone. The home is situated in a quiet little neighborhood with a short walk to the beach via a private boardwalk. Cape San Blas is beautiful and quiet; we had a very restful vacation. I highly recommend a visit to CSB and a stay here. We intend to be back as soon as we can!

Me, my wife, 11yr old daughter & 9yr old son had a great time.
My son loved the Xbox, and we all loved being a short walk to the beach.
This townhome has everything you'll need for your stay and the decorations and furnishings are very nice & comfortable.
We plan to come back next year, can't wait!
