Very nice house!
All in all, a very nice house. The elevator requires a little bit of learning to get used to, but very useful once you do so. Very nice rooms with all sorts of nice stuff included. 9/10 I do recommend and would go again in a heartbeat

Great escape to the cape!!
All the things that were great: the house, the views, the beach, the beach gear service included with rental, the weather… Intention was super chill beach getaway and that’s what family group of 7 got- house super comfortable, had a little hiccup on our end, got right in touch with mgmt group, very nice. Nice new deck over dunes to beach- felt very private, Used elevator a little, struggled being able to load at ground level - most likely user error :) stairs worked just fine. Fishing trip out of PSJ- mangrove snapper, white trout and dock-purchased shrimp, so yummy Beaches practically empty, great space between homes so plenty of room, no public traffic. Truly a gem, would totally rebook.

Amazing! Rent this place - you won't be disappointed!
This is by far one of the best experiences we've ever had with a vacation rental home and agency. Communication was excellent. Home was even better than we expected. Our first few days had some rough weather - extreme winds blew the sand all over the place. Needless to say, we were extremely grateful for the protection from the amazing dunes, which also offered so much privacy. The home was super clean, spacious, convenient, and just beautiful. The screened in porch got a bit battered by the winds, but we weren't there during the "buggy" season, so no problem for us. The elevator was a knee saver, especially with the bedrooms being on the top floor. Best views on the beach! Sunsets were to die for. We love shell hunting, and we were not disappointed. This was our first visit to CSB, and we are already planning our next one. Thank you so much for an unforgettable birthday trip!

Great Relaxing Vacation
Big Swell is a great house right on the beach. Cape San Blas is such a welcome change from 30A. It is so laid back and not crowded. Even over Labor Day weekend, the nearest people to us on the beach were over 100 yards away. Very dog friendly.

Excellent
My husband and I came in August and loved this house. The view was amazing and the master bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed all the porches (especially the master porch and the comfy chairs out there!) and ate most of our meals out on the porches. Only downside would be if you’re looking for a dog friendly house this may not be a first choice as there aren’t any rugs on the tiled floors, no gate on the outside part of the porch, lots of stairs that are also all tiled (we sadly weren’t able to bring our pup, but can’t help to notice these things even when he’s not around). Kitchen was well stocked and the whole house was very clean. Overall we loved our stay here and would definitely come back.

Can't wait to return to Cape San Blas!
The Big Swell was a great home that was perfect for our group! We loved that there was an elevator to get all of our gear up and down from the car. The location of the beach was great! We could easily pop in from the beach and make lunch or grab anything we needed. We loved walking over to Scallop Cove and Beach Planet for any gear we needed. We rented paddle boards for the week and they got tons of use on the beautiful gulf water! We can't wait to return for more amazing sunsets and shelling adventures!

Other than that the house was great. It was very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. I would definitely rent it again.

The accommodations at Big Swell were great. The house was clean and set up very nice for a group stay. The view of the gulf from the balconies is spectacular and access to the beach is easy. The location is central to the local shops and restaurants on the cape and the drive into Pt. St Joe or Apalachicola is not bad at all. We enjoyed our stay and definately reccomend this place.

Amazing Time Off The Grid
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: What a lovely place and amazing de-stresser! Walks on the beach, laid back meals, reading and puzzles! Loved the spot and the privacy of the home. Very comfortable and the elevator is a bonus for getting things in and out of the house.

I have also never dealt with a property management company as attentive as Baytowne - best experience ever!

The entire area is charming and I hope it stays that way.....I will definitely be back!

great location
House was clean and nice that 3 of the 4 bedrooms had their own private bathrooms. Location was fantastic - right near a walking path to take you up and down the cape. There was plenty of sandy area in front of the house to play before you hit the ocean which isn't the case for some of the other houses nearby. The wooden planks from the house to the ocean are stair stepped so you can't really use a wagon but since it was right on the beach multiple trips weren't a hassle. Elevator was nice to bring up groceries and suitcases to the bedrooms. Screened in porch was nice to eat lunch outside without having to clean the kids off completely. ONLY (small) complaint is that the house isn't very soundproof so bring a sound machine if kids are going to bed early or people are trying to nap during the day. Restaurants are about a 20 minute drive but we had good experiences both times we went. Would 100% book here again.

There is a convenience store very close to the house but you’ll want to get your groceries before you head to the home as the closest grocery is a drive into Port St, Joe.
