traveler reviews for this cape san blas house rental

Spring vacation

Review submitted: May 18, 2013   Date of arrival: April 27, 2013

The property is extremely private and quiet with only a glimpse of part of the house next door. There are beautiful lawns front and back. The swimming pool is completely fenced and well maintained. When we entered the house we could tell this was a real home with a history of family vacations and special times with good friends. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed spetacluar views of the bay as we had morning coffee on the deck watching the sunrise. When it rained we moved to the screened porch and when it got windy, we moved upstairs and tried to remember how to play pingpong. The large open bayfront with steps from the shore made for easy access to play in the bay. Beach access at the public park is only a few minutes walk down the bike path. A big thank you to the Cooley's for sharing their perfect vacation retreat.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway
