Description Description
"BAYCATION is a home designed with the vacationer in mind. From the massive expanse of porches and decks to the multiple gathering and seating areas, you will have no problem finding your spot in this home. Whether you want to play or relax, Baycation has what you need. Incredible Bay views await you from the upper and lower level front and back porches and decks furnished with a variety of comfortable seating, lounging, and dining areas. The private dock offers the ability to fish, kayak, or merely sit and enjoy the bay breeze. There is no better place to kayak on the Cape than in St. Joseph's Bay! For an afternoon of fun, the pool awaits. Cornhole or horseshoe enthusiast? Baycation has that too.

For the multi-family vacationers, Baycation offers two Primary King Bedrooms with bath so no need for drawing straws on who gets the big bedroom here! In addition, a third bedroom offers a Queen bed, then a fourth bedroom with a Queen bed and a Twin over Twin Bunk bed.

Baycation sports two separate gathering rooms with plenty of seating for relax or play. This house is anything but your typical rental home with basic furniture and pictures, for it is furnished with beautiful décor, much of it made locally, and equipped with top-notch and custom-made furniture, lighting, and bedding, so comfort and beauty await your stay. An interior elevator will assist you with your luggage to each floor, but the beautiful open stairwell with cable railing begs the journey also. The kitchen is a home chef's dream, filled with everything you will need for preparing a week's worth of fabulous meals of local seafood or your favorite dishes. Outside is a gas grill and a pizza oven for a fun cooking adventure.

To assist in your adventure at Baycation, your reservation includes $250 worth of adventure gear rental. Whether your adventure is sitting under an umbrella on the white-sandy beaches, biking, or fishing from a kayak in the Bay, this $250 credit towards your vacation gear rental will ensure you have the adventure you seek. You will be able to shop for bikes, paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas, or even beach carts. No need to find the rental company, your gear will be delivered to your beach house and will be waiting for your arrival.

Baycation!
Baycation was the absolute perfect home with the best of both the bay with a fabulous dock and the short drive to Two Palms for fun on the gulf! It was perfectly located! The spacious screen porch was the perfect late afternoon gathering place! The kitchen was phenomenal with everything you need and more! The home was beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. The elevator was a bonus for a mother in law and an elderly dog and to carry an infant baby! We enjoyed every aspect of this lovely home…all the wonderful private decks from the bedrooms upstairs to the great open porch with fun swings and fabulous views!! We enjoyed the pool daily and several night swims…the pool lights were awesome. The price you pay is well worth it! Hope to someday rent Baycation again!

An Amazing Cottage and Vacation Stay!
This was by far our favorite cottage at CSB! The owners thought of everything you might need to make your stay easy and comfortable! The kitchen is amazing with high quality appliances, cookware, cutlery, etc. The elevator was awesome for unpacking, packing and even sending groceries upstairs. We loved the decor, the bay view and dock and the private setting. The cottage is well maintained with everything looking clean and brand new. I really appreciated all the thoughtful touches everywhere in the cottage, from being well stocked to having tips and labels on various items to make figuring things out a breeze. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners who were super nice! We miss so many things from our stay at Baycation and hope to return again.

Loved it!
This home was beautifully decorated, clean, and well-equipped. The owners have thought of everything. The layout of the house is perfect for families, the upstairs was especially nice for our adult children (and spouse) to have their own space. One of my favorite things was the large, screened porch - loved sitting out there having coffee and watching the sunrise! The dock was especially nice for fishing and accessing our kayaks/boats. The bay has a little bit of a beach at low tide and our dogs loved swimming there. We lacked for nothing - and Cape and Coast knocked it out of the park (again) with quick response to any questions or needs we had. We have rented homes managed by them for the past 10 years and they never disappoint.

Baycation - the perfect vacation!
Baycation is the most well-equipped, clean and beautiful VRBO property we have ever booked for a vacation! It is spacious, beautifully decorated, and the location is perfect. We were intrigued by all the wildlife we saw in the bay - sea turtles, dolphins, hermit crabs, blue crabs, clams with irridescent blue "eyes," fish, stingrays, interesting birds, and much more. When we wanted to see the ocean and be on the beach, it was just a short walk across the street. I have already recommended Baycation to several friends who are interested in a Florida vacation away from the usual beach crowds. We will definitely return to this property!

We not only felt at home, we feel inspired to add some of their beautiful decor and smart organizational choices to our own home! The location is wonderful. We enjoyed breakfast watching the sunrise over the bay and cocktails at day’s end watching the sunset over the ocean. The beaches are pristine! Seashells and starfish adorn seemingly endless miles of powdery sand. We already miss Baycation so much we’re planning our return visit.

Baycation an EXCELLENT decision
Property was excellent and exactly as described. So much attention to detail in this home. Loved the privacy of the bay. Typically we stay on the ocean side but decided to try the bay, which was a great decision because of this amazing home and the fact that there was a red tide happening in the ocean side during our stay. Sunrise and sunsets were gorgeous from the decks on the back, fishing and kayaking from the dock was fun. Pool was perfect to relax and enjoy family time!!

Service was outstanding and their representatives personable and responsive. Baycation is in my experience the MOST INCREDIBLE home I have ever rented...and I rent a home for my “birthday month” every year since retiring. The kitchen...wow. Every appliance you would ever need. And extremely well stocked. The furnishings were high end, including the decorations. But the best part...the decks! Again, every luxury you can (and can’t!) imagine. We even enjoyed the pool...in November. And for a retiree, loved the elevator. I cannot brag on this house enough. Nor could my guests. The best birthday month ever!

Very nice property. Location is excellent. Scallops most abundant right off the dock. All the boats were coming over to dive right off the property. Wish the property would offer some water toys so you wouldn't need to rent them. Master showers are huge with rain showers. It would be nice to also have a hand held shower head.

The screened porches, decks, and the dock fantastic. The Bay is so beautiful and fun and the house is just a short distance to the the beaches on the Gulf. This was our third vacation rental with Cape and Coast and they were awesome, as usual!

Amazing get away from crowds and traffic
We arrived and just loved it! It smelled a new inside the elevator was awesome because you could send all your stuff upstairs. Cape San Blas is beautiful and NO traffic NO waiting for a table at the yummy Mexican joint in port st joe! Perfect for fishing just across the street is beach access. Omg there were biting flies on the beach for some reason and could not sit there so we were glad we had the pool!

The kitchen was wonderful, stocked with everything you could possibly need! We also enjoyed the wet bar on the second level! Thank you for designing a perfect rental house!

The other homes were gulf front and this was our first stay on the bay. The home is beautiful. The owners have thought of everything a renter could need and provided it. Being on the bay offered great fishing, smooth water for kayaking, beautiful scenery and a short distance to the beach. Baycation will definitely be our first choice next time we visit Cape San Blas.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The six of us loved staying at Baycation! We felt at home the moment we arrived! It's the best equipped home we've stayed at. The decks and dock were our favorite! The guys fished all day and my sister & I shelled right in the bay. The team at Cape & Coast went above & beyond and their generosity touched our hearts! We took a fishing charter, ate at some good restaurants, but mostly relaxed & enjoyed time together! The town is more scarce than we expected, but they're still rebuilding from hurricane. We would definitely visit again & wouldn't hesitate to book with cape & coast again and again!

Thank you so much for sharing this very special place! It was a joy and a privilege to vacation here. Perfection. We have no suggestions for improvement...(oh...one family member gently suggests maybe heat for the pool? Or a hot tub? :)

Awesome BAYCATION, Feb 2020
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: I could write a book about my wonderful stay at "Baycation". This spacious home has everything! It is spotlessly maintained, very well-designed, beautifully decorated, and has every gadget you can imagine in the stunning kitchen. The cooking equipment & accessories is all high-end name brands and looks nearly new. The screened porches & open decks offer breathtaking views of St Joseph's Bay (including intense sunrises). In the evening, the west-facing decks offer the colors of sunsets. There is plenty of comfortable outdoor seating, with a cozy fire table on one of the Bay-facing decks. I fell asleep on the large hanging rope bed on one of the screened peaceful. It's a long walk to the end of the private dock on the Bay, but the water is clear and relatively shallow. Take a book and 'sit a spell' out over the water. In warm months, launch your kayak right off the stairs. The interior of the home features very comfortable furniture, especially the mattresses, linens & pillows. The bathrooms are large with oversized showers and "rain" heads. The owners' choice of decorations for the home are on the whimsical side, with an alligator 'butler' in the 3rd floor kitchenette and a 3-D surprise in the elevator (check out the photos). The private pool is inviting, but the weather was too cold to swim or to bake a pizza in the wood-fired oven out there. The owners put considerable thought into this home for the comfort & convenience of their guests, such as labeling of all of the electrical switches & cabinet shelves in the kitchen. The photos are an accurate representation of this gorgeous rental. Highest quality is what you'll find when you step inside. Baycation is an amazing home.. you will love it !

Fully stocked kitchen, elevator, plenty of outdoor relaxation spaces, a great dock to fish from and the perfect size pool for our little ones! Thanks to the owners for allowing families to "borrow" their home for a week to enjoy time with family! The only concern we had was the pool cleaning service. When we arrived, the pool was dirty with sand gathered near the steps. It didn't bother us because we figured that this would get cleaned up when the pool service company came. We were home when the pool tech came on Wednesday... she did not even turn off her truck, but simply walked around the pool with a net in her hand that she did not use and then she left. When we left after one week, the same dark spot of sand was still near the steps.

Beautiful Home!!
What a beautiful home! Brand new, immaculate and very spacious. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need and more! The view of the bay is spectacular and so is the breeze. The Gulf is right across the street and the beaches are also immaculate. Our week stay was very relaxing and quiet and the Cape is just a beautiful, special place. Wait until you see the sunrise from the deck!!

Amazing Week!
Amazing Week! Our families enjoyed our time at this fabulous home. Highlights of the week were hiking to the Donna Kay, our boat rental from Capt. Clint and shelling on the tip of the Cape. The only thing that could have made the trip better would have been more bites from the fish <. We all agree this was the best stocked rental home we have ever had. We are so thankful for this fun week at the beach, our last adventure before school starts.

Love the Cape
We love the Cape! CSB has been a wonderful vacation spot for our families since 2012. We've enjoyed staying on both the bayside and gulf side. This year has been amazing! We really loved this house - perfect for those that love to cook! Our family enjoyed kayaking in the bay, visiting the State Park and easy access to the beach. Places to visit - Weber's Donuts (get there early and stand in line *cash only*, Indian Pass Raw Bar.

Amazing Vacation
What an amazing vacation home! Our families came together for one amazing vacation and thoroughly enjoyed this home. The kitchen was fully stocked and more than impressive, the house had been beautifully decorated with rustic decor, plenty of room for our families, loved the back decks and comfy outdoor furniture, as well as the dock. Precious neighbors. We would recommend a set of stairs for the end of the dock with such drastic changes in tide levels. Nonetheless, in our 8th year of visiting PSJ and CSB, this was by far the BEST vacation house yet!

Finally, the location of Baycation on Cape San Blas provided us with everything one could want in a vacation rental. With the house setting on the bay side of the cape, we had access to the pier for fishing, as well as wading and kayaking in the bay. However, it was less than a 5 minute drive to the ocean side of the cape where we enjoyed the waves and solitude of the beach.
