For an amazing experience, you can horseback ride on the beach from Salinas Park. If you are interested in wildlife and natural beauty, plan a trip over to St. Vincent Island by ferry boat for the day.  Hike around the island and explore our native wildlife and foliage.  About 30 miles away is the historical fishing community of Apalachicola.  It's perfect for a day trip to do a little shopping, stroll along the Apalachicola River or grab some of the best seafood around!  You won't be disappointed!  There are so many options to do without crowds or traffic!

Amazingly relaxing vacation!

July 2023

Overall

The house was absolutely gorgeous. The elevator was the reason we booked this house specifically. )My MIL was traveling with us and couldn't do stairs.) We ranged in age from 3months-81yo. The easy access to the beach and having the personal pool were amazing. Anything we could have thought of to have at the beach (and more) were in the storage closet outside, including great beach chairs. I wouldn't hesitate to book again. It was our first time at CSB and we fell in love!

Manager's Response

Thank you so much Christi for trusting us with your first visit to the Cape! We are so pleased to hear you had a great time. We look forward to seeing you next year.

Overall great time was had by all. Location is nice, house is a little worn and the pool wasn’t working but management ultimately gave us some money back to make it right.

Manager's Response

Thank you for you kind words and positive review Lisa. We are thrilled that overall you enjoyed your time on the Cape at the Bird's Nest. Once again please accept our apologies regarding the pool. We look forward to a future visit and the opportunity to host you again soon. It was our pleasure.

This location cannot be beat! Steps from the white sand beach, far enough away from public beach access that you always have a great spot at the beach! The amenities were perfect and included everything you need at the beach with kids. The kids bunk room was perfect for them to relax after a long day on the beach. Would recommend highly!

Manager's Response

Thank you Kylee for your kind words and positive review.It is always great to hear when our guests enjoy their stay with us.The Bird's Nest is a very spacious yet cozy home perfectly situated on the Cape to enjoy the beautiful beaches and water of the Gulf. The beachside private pool is icing on the cake for this property. We look forward to a return visit and the opportunity to host you again. It was truly our pleasure.

Plenty of beds for everyone. The kitchen was well stocked and we used it most nights for our meals. Overall great trip!

The Birds Nest is located on the best beach area (currently) in Cape San Blas! The beach access was complete paradise to have!! Then the heated pool was constantly used by both kids and adults! The outdoor shower and hose were perfectly located along with a shed filled with all the beach and pool necessities!!! **do pack ant killer and bug spray The views off the decks were gorgeous! Wished there was a table and chairs on the top deck to enjoy a meal from! The kitchen was well equipped along with laundry! The garbage disposal leaked during our stay and Sunshine Rentals fixed it within 2 days. Overall this was the best vacation ever and we can’t recommend it enough!!! Thank you Sunshine Vacation Rentals and Birds Nest owners for sharing your slice of paradise!!!!

Manager's Response

This is a beautiful home in a great location. It was ideal for a family vacay with adult children and grandchildren. The beach was perfect, the views amazing and best of all — no high rise condos and no crowded beach. The kiddos loved the pool and the assortment of beach and pool toys was a hit. We will definitely be back and highly recommend.

Manager's Response

It thrills me to hear such positive feedback and pure joy when family vacations come together and are "perfect".  The Bird's Next is a unique home directly on the Gulf and with a private pool.  The amenities are endless.  Family vacations are the best!  I hope to see you many times over in the future as it will always be my pleasure to host you.

We loved our stay at the Birds Nest! The beach access and large pool was amazing. It was such a relaxing and easy vacation our whole party agreed we will come stay again! We found so many unique sea shells, saw dolphins, crabs, and jellyfish! The water was perfect the whole week. We love Cape San Blas and are so happy we found the perfect house!
