The townhouse has been newly carpeted and is meticulously maintained. Internet connection and  a TV in every room allows you to keep in touch with family and friends. To help you enjoy the good life a gas BBQ is on the living room porch. With wonderful sights of glorious sunsets, life does not get any better. than this. At night you can hear the ocean waves while sitting on the deck gazing at the stars. A spacious loft that kids describe as  awesome  has 3 twin beds, a TV, DVD, Puzzles, Books and Games. This becomes the kids own secret and special space with room to lie on the floor or use the sofa sitting area. The master bedroom suite has a king- size bed and a porch overlooking the fishing pond. The second bedroom suite has a queen-size bed with bath and its own deck with chairs.

The Barrier Dunes Community has 2 swimming Pools one of them heated,  Tennis Courts and a Kids Playground. The Cape has a 4 mile long Bicycle path and places to rent Canoes, Scooters, Boats and Beach Gear. The nearby towns of Port St.Joe and Apalachicola have great restaurants, great shopping and historic museums. Panama City has a water park that is a favorite activity for families to experience. Come stay at the Cockle shell on Cape San Blas, collect shells to take home to remember your summer by.

traveler reviews for this cape san blas townhome rental

As advertised, owner great to work with.

Review submitted: May 29, 2013   Date of arrival: June 23, 2012

Cockle Shell was as advertised as it was on VRBO. close and easy pool/beach access. Family friendly atmosphere.

Arrived the last day of tropical storm Debby, was a lil rainy the first night but beautiful there the rest of our stay. The beach was awesome and friendly, we left our chairs and beach going equipment there the whole week and nobody bothered it.

Cockle Shell is in close proximity to the state park which is beautiful, the kids loved wading and catching lil critters in the bay. TheTtrading Post was close and has everything you need.

Maria was great to work with and we look forward to staying here again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Spring Break Blast

Review submitted: April 16, 2013   Date of arrival: March 30, 2013

Cockle Shell was fantastic! We vacation with friends every year in new places. This was our first time in Cape San Blas. The only pet-friendly beach we've ever been too. Our family dog had a great time as well! This place is very relaxing as well as offering various of outdoor activities. The kids rode horses on the beach, rode their bikes along the bike/walking/running trail, played hours of tennis and climbed the rocks at the beginning of the Cape San Blas Peninsula. These rocks made for fantastic family pictures. The Cockle Shell's location is the best on the property in my opinion. It's conveniently located just steps away from the pool and the beach. We could see the tennis courts from the kitchen window and the little child we took with us loved to look from the deck at the turtles in the pond and play on the playground that was just a few buildings over. The highlight was the end of the day when we made a fire on the beach, looked at the beautiful stars in the dark sky and made s'mores together.
Also The Trading Post, the little grocery down the street, had everything we could possibly need that we left at home. We made daily stops at The Trading Post for ice cream, coffee and if you awake early they have fresh, homemade doughnuts made by George!
Maria was great to work with in booking our vacation and her place is very enjoyable and reasonably priced. We loved our time on Cape San Blas and at The Cockle Shell. We made some great memories with our family and friends and I highly recommend The Cockle Shell for your next vacation.

Absolutley Amazing

Review submitted: September 30, 2012   Date of arrival: August 11, 2012

Thank you AGAIN for another wonderful summer vacation. I don't know where to start as to what we enjoyed the most. The condo was perfect, we usually stay at the Coquina but this time decided to try the condo. Plenty of room, wonderful decks and views. Nice pools. One positive for the condo is the kids were able to meet other kids. I would have to say my favorite were spending an afternoon visiting with you and your husband. We will also remember renting a pontoon and crossing the bay to the tip of the cape. We found clams that locals had not seen for years, sand dollars that we finally quit collecting because there were so many. Thanks again for your hospitality, we will definately be back. Andy, Tamara and the kids from Columbus, Ohio
