About the Owner

Buddy and Linda Gerald have spent years in Abaco, Bahamas. When Buddy found that he was suffering from Macular Degeneration, they began to look for a property with Retina Specialists close by. After months of searching, they discovered Cape San Blas. Lime Pie was purchased in 2013. They treasure this cottage which is beautifully completed. The most beautiful beaches in the world with a bike path outside your door was icing on the cake.

Lime Pie, the brightest on the cape, will steal your heart
Cape San Blas Florida Panhandle

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several houses through VRBO and this vacation we wanted a house right on the beach. Lime Pie did not disappoint! The house has stunning views of the Gulf and a private board walk down to the white sand. We could keep all beach toys under the house and the outdoor shower was very handy for washing off sand before coming back into the house.

My two pre-school children loved the bunk room and study upstairs, which they used as a play and TV room. They had the upstairs space to themselves, which was perfect, as we had a few stormy days so they were not under our feet the whole time.

The house was wonderfully clean. The bathrooms were top quality. The kitchen area is small, but functional. We ate in half the time. My husband enjoyed cooking on the charcoal grill provided. The couches were very comfortable. They are white though, which mean constant vigilance with small children!

The space under the house was great for shade seeking when we had had enough of the sun. My children loved the swing. The also did lots of coloring in on the picnic table.

The beach is beautiful, but quite a thin strip so when the tide is up there is not much sand left. There were a few people fishing and some other families further down the beach, but we had a large area to ourselves. There were plenty of shells for the kids to collect. We loved seeing the dolphins. It was very exciting when two of them popped up only feet away when we were playing knee deep! We saw them several times while eating in the house and when sitting on the balcony.

Beach fires are allowed so we had fun cooking s'mores on the beach.

The state park at the end of Cape san Blas is extremely beautiful. we paid the $6 to go there a few times to play on the beach and have an ice cream while watching boats in the harbor. There is a small playground there that my children enjoyed.

There is a basic shop nearby where you can get essentials, but it is very expensive. We travelled the 20 minutes to the nearest Piggly Wiggly in Port St Joe when we needed to get groceries.

We took day trips to Panama City and St George Island, which were both worth a visit. Mostly we stayed at the house and enjoyed the beach when the weather allowed.

Linda, the owner, was very easily and pleasant to deal with. We would happily stay at the house again.

First Florida family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5
For our first family beach vacation, 10, 12 and 13 year old girls, parents and Grandparents, this was a great place to stay. As long as you can do stairs! The home is beautiful, an open downstairs area with kitchen and living room, and a place for kids to have privacy upstairs, every bedroom had a bathroom. It was very clean and well maintained upon arrival...altho sand has a way of getting in no matter how careful you are..daily sweeping necessary!! All furniture was nice, large dining table. The views of the Gulf from all rooms but one bedroom were wonderful to wake up to, and sunsets spectacular. Back deck is great , but sunny mid to late afternoon. The beach, a short walk down the boardwalk, was lovely, and relatively private, just neighbors, be sure to bring umbrella's or tents, the sun is intense. Sand castles don't last long, the tide comes in pretty high overnight!!! Dogs are permitted on beach, on leashes. There are quite a few turtle nests, roped off, and we didn't get to see a hatching, but still educational. Be sure to talk to one of the people from the Turtle kidding!! Bonfires, making s'mores and roasting hot dogs were great evening entertainment. Altho it was indicated to bring beach chairs, there were plenty there. BBQ grill was charcoal, not gas as indicated...bring charcoal and lighter. We rarely left the house and beach, (beach equipment rental is close by, and well worth it) although there are many interesting places to explore, and we did a 3 hour shark fishing trip. Great for kids, the all day fishing might have been too much. We cooked in almost every night. But the kitchen had no casseroles or baking sheets, or crock pot, important for family meals. There is a limited supply of paper products, and no cooking condiments, etc. some spices are there, you pretty much need to bring what you'll need. Washer uses HE detergent, which was not indicated. Check before you go to see what you might need to bring. Small quick shops are close, more shopping in Port St. Joe. Great restaurants & shops there. Sunset Grill highly recommended!!!! The home had a very relaxing atmosphere. Would go back again! The owner was very friendly and informational, and I enjoyed reading one of her books. However, you do rent through a rental company. We had t-shirts with a pic of Lime Pie house made for everyone before our trip...they were a great surprise hit, and will bring back wonderful memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your most kind words. I thought that I had corrected the grill from gas to BBQ. Will check on that. I changed it because of the recent dangers from gas grills. So sorry about the lacking items. This is a new home. When we go on vacation, I never cook. (I am a lousy cook). However, I will be sure to stock the missing items. What a nice thing to have shirts made. Would really appreciate one of your cards. We would love to post it inside Lime Pie. I'll just bet there will be plenty of others who do the same. Thank you again for taking the time to review Lime Pie. You are our first and we will be sure to provide the missing things. You left the house in great condition. Thank you for your interest in Lime Pie. Please come again. Linda Gerald

From the Owner

Lime Pie is only one year old so everything is new and fresh. Each bedroom has a private bath. The master bath has a large walk-in shower. The other two have tubs for the children with showers as well. All appliances are brand new G.E. A stack washer and dryer, European style, is wonderful but requires HE detergent. There is a covered balcony on the front and back which shelters from the rain and sun. Everything about this home has been carefully considered for the guest's comfort.
