Whether you enjoy combing the pet-friendly beach for shells, snorkeling, kayaking, sunbathing, surfing waves, fishing, taking a leisurely stroll along the shoreline or enjoying a bonfire, you will spend hours of fun while soaking up the sun on miles and miles of uncrowded beaches.

When you are ready to venture out, visit nearby Port St. Joe for shopping, restaurants and entertainment.  Downtown offers cute shops along Reid Avenue, many restaurants and grocery stores.  Don't forget to check out the historical Lighthouse and Sea Turtle Museum. We love our sea turtles!  Visit St. Joseph Peninsula State Park for access to the beach and the bay. It offers natural hiking trails, miles of untouched beaches and access to launch kayaks or paddle boards.  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's so many options to do without crowds or traffic!

This home is pet-friendly, and allows up to 2 dogs.  If you choose to bring a pet, a charge of $140 will be added to your reservation after you book.

Our beautiful area has been under reconstruction since Hurricane Michael in 2018.

Gorgeous Rental

March 2024

Overall
5

We completely enjoyed our stay! The house is gorgeous, quiet and peaceful with great views from the windows and decks. I loved the decks overlooking the trees at the back of the property. There was even a hammock in the backyard and great landscaping around the fire pit. We walked and rode the provided bikes along the wooded path behind the house and made s'mores in the fire pit (firewood is available at Piggly Wiggly, bring sticks). The outdoor grill worked great! The kitchen has a dishwasher with double drawers (it starts when the start button light is purple), and a super fast gas stove. I loved the pantry next to the kitchen to store all food not needing refrigeration. There are lots of large closets. We had a great time using the 2 kayaks provided for exploring St. Joseph's Bay (bring life jackets and rope for transporting kayaks -there were some bungee cords). The 3-person kayak sat a little low with 3 people so wear swimsuits. We saw crabs, hermit crabs, minnows, birds, and even a harmless water snake. The beach entrance wasn't far and we loved using the many beach chairs (can be worn as backpacks) and the kids loved the boogie boards provided as well. There were beach towels, ample toys, floats and shovels and there was a beach umbrella but we didn't try it. We had an amazing time and can't wait to return! The managers of this property were super helpful!

Manager's Response

My wife and I were looking to escape the city during the holidays, and found this incredible treasure located in Cape San Blas, Florida. It is the perfect escape from the city!!!! The home was in perfect condition, clean, spacious and cozy. We especially enjoyed watching the sunsets from the balcony/front porch. What does that Amex commercial say again? Priceless!!!! Some cute shops are within walking distance of this gorgeous home…. We truly enjoyed the donut guy, who comes out every morning to make fresh donuts, and the home made ice cream parlor next door to it. The folks in the grocery and the fish store treated us like good neighbors. The beach walks …. Oh… the beach walks… we wish we could go back there right now!!! Nirvana indeed. One thing is certain: we will return to this incredible getaway as soon as possible.

Manager's Response

House was very nicely done and easy to access. Very clean. The beach wasn't far and there was a cute nature trail behind it. We enjoyed the bikes and rented some kayaks.

Carpe Diem was everything we expected and more! Amy and the rest of the staff at sunshine vacation rentals were super friendly and always communicated with us quickly. When they say pet friendly; they mean it! They allowed us to bring our golden retrievers and the backyard was perfect for them to play around in. The beach was visible from the front balcony and the bay was even visible from the windows in the back of the house. It was a quick walk to the beach. We used a path in the sand only steps from our driveway. We loved that the beach was very private and peaceful. They did a great job sharing info about restaurants/shops/things to do nearby. The house was in pristine condition, felt super clean, and had everything we needed and more! There are two recommendations that I would give - however neither of these things were a make or break and can easily be fixed, our vacation was still perfect. It was kind of hot in the bedrooms and the beds weren’t the comfiest.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the positive review! We are so happy you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to a return visit and the opportunity to host you once again. It was indeed our pleasure.
