Perfect Paradise
The house was perfect to accommodate our party of 19, 5 families. We had 9 kids ranging from 1-5; the pool, the beach, and space were perfect. The long dining table was such a treat for our entire party to dine together. The only issue we had was figuring out the thermostats, as some rooms were really cold while some were very warm. Overall it was a great week, and we will be back. We highly recommend this location and this property.

We will be back!
This was an amazing home that accommodated our group of 21 family and friends. We had everything we needed, and if something came up, the owners were right on it! The access to beach, your own pool and hot tub, you can't go wrong!

One of the best Properties
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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: We had a group of 17 people ranging all ages. The home and property were amazing! The view is breathtaking and the pool/patio area is perfect for hanging out. The area felt VERY private which is exactly what we were looking for. We felt like we were on a private island far away. The home has everything you need and the rental company was great to work with. They answered all our questions and quickly corrected any maintenance issues (very few) we had.
Lauren H. - Posted: 9/18/2021
Oh Lauren, thank you so much for the fabulous review! It is so great to hear that you and your family enjoyed Magnolia and Cape San Blas and that we could help contribute to that. We look forward to seeing you all again soon, until then, stay safe!

We are very grateful to the homeowners for having a pet-friendly home. We always travel with our fur-children. Although Hurricane Ida sent us some rainy days, we really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean upon our arrival. It's always a pleasure to work with Cape and Coast.

Incredible Home on the Ocean
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: This is a gorgeous home and the view was incredible. We went for our 45th Anniversary with our children and 10 grandchildren 20 in all. The home was spot on for our needs....the description, amenities, and service were excellent. The pool company and Cape and Coast were always there when we needed them. We would go back in a heart beat. Two issues that we did not let bother us... no full size microwave and, the elevator stopped working on Day 2 and never started again. Cape and Coast responded immediately and told us it needed parts but they never arrived. The price was fair...I went to book again and the price has doubled + for next year. So we'll need to look elsewhere. Have Cape and Coast looking!

Great
We had a terrific time. A stickler for perfection would have been annoyed by the none working microwave over the oven......small countertop one had to make do. Water went out for about 30 minutes one after, water company says they blew a breaker.... The pool was excellent & beach access great. Renting the kayaks & bikes & board was a money well spent.

Beautiful home
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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: The home is lovely and handles a large group well. Our only issues were low water pressure and weak internet when many were online at one time. The home could use two dishwashers as well.
Elizabeth P. - Posted: 3/13/2021
Thanks so much for your review Elizabeth! The local government is currently working on beefing up the infrastructure for the end of the cape. A new water tower is being installed as well as fiber cable for the internet down the length of Cape San Blas Rd. They haven't given us a finish date yet but we hope that it will be soon! Great idea about the second dishwasher. We will send that recommendation on to the owner. Hope to have you back soon!

Best Vacation Spot!
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: Our stay at the Magnolia Secluded Dunes house was amazing. Beautiful views, very secluded beachfront, private pool and hot tub were just a few of the perks! It was a great getaway for our family especially in the current COVID environment. The house was very clean and the Cape & Coast staff were very helpful. Only suggestions would be to have a broom and dustpan in house for guests to keep from tracking sand into the house and maybe more comfortable living room furniture. Overall a great place to vacation!

Almost perfect!
Great layout! Lots of space! Very nice pool! The ice maker was quite helpful! We really enjoyed our stay but there are a few things that could be addressed to make it completely perfect: *The shower in the 3rd floor Master suite drained VERY slowly. *Many screws and nails in the stairs to the beach need tightening. *A roll-down blind in the kitchen would help reduce the afternoon heat in the great room. *Grill cleaning tools should be provided. *Several sliding glass doors have handle and sticking issues. *Neither of the sliding doors to the Jack and Jill bathroom on the 3rd floor closed completely. *There were fire ants by the grill and fire pit. *A shower at the base of the stairs from the beach would significantly reduce the amount of sand brought to the patio and pool area. *A dust pan with the broom would be nice to have. *An additional refrigerator would be nice for a house this size, especially during this Covid scare where most meals are likely eaten in. *A supply of replacement tips for the pool cue sticks would be nice (we shared one stick for the entire week).

Week in paradise
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. 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: The house was very nice and had a beautiful view of the beach through the palm trees and great sunset views if we didn’t wish to walk down to the beach. The only problem with the house was the kitchen and available pots, pans, glassware. The was one wineglass in the entire house., We had to cut our bacon in half to fit in the frying pans. No large cooking pans were available. Just little stuff like that. We had to drink our wine out of highball glasses. We arrived at 5:00PM on the day of check in and they were still cleaning. There was a pile of dirt on the main floor that the cleaners had not gotten up. Other than that, the place was clean.
Virginia H. - Posted: 6/27/2020
Thank you for sharing your experience at Magnolia. If you had told us about the inventory, we would have gladly brought you out more because we keep items in stock at our office. I must apologize that the cleaners left a pile of dirt, that is not acceptable in a Cape & Coast house. Thank you for making us aware of the issues and we are so glad that you enjoyed this wonderful house and its phenomenal views.

Perfect setting to unwind and share family time.
There's so much good to say about this place and a little not so good but I imagine the few issues will be resolved over time. The good - loved the location as it was like having our own private beach. The house itself easily accommodated our 18 member family that ran from 19 mos to 79 years old. Top of the line appliances and furnishings. We thoroughly appreciated the very long dining table for our large gathering dinners. Outside toys aplenty to be found in the store units on the ground floor and the elevator was a fantastic plus in every way. If I had any recommendation it would be to offer or install some baby gate system blocking the stairs for those that bring youngsters. There's just about everything else baby you could possibly need in the closets on both floors - including two Pack and Play portable cribs and walkers. The problems - Very weak water pressure so a typical short shower took much longer as you chased the water around to rinse off shampoo and soap. A/C unit is totally weird set up. Family in the double bunk beds on the second floor were in a sauna while the rest of the floor froze. The repair person was extremely prompt to answer our call but they freely admitted it wasn't wired for efficiency and advised to use a box fan to try and pull cool air into the room. The house box fan was broken so we purchased another one from Port St Joe but it did little to alleviate the heat. The pocket doors in just about all bathrooms and the sliding door off the kitchen were off tracks, hard to open or refused to stay closed. A little awkward in shared bathrooms. The awesome floor to ceiling windows on the third floor made for some very hot afternoons (88 degrees by sundown every day) even with the custom blinds. The main heat appeared to be from the windows in the kitchen that didn't have any blinds but I feel that's a work in progress. A week on the beach and only those few items referenced above stop it from scoring a perfect 10 - none of which would stop us from reserving again. I think the house is still a work in progress from the hurricane last year and will only improve over time. Any problems that could be solved received prompt attention from local service companies - very impressive.

Tall dunes allowed for privacy for barbecuing in the yard and relaxing in the hot tub. The kitchen had all the necessary things to make cooking a breeze. The wine cooler and the separate ice maker were especially nice. Everyone had a wonderful time and enjoyed staying in this wonderful home.

Cape and Coast Is THE Best
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: NOTE: Before going further, know that if you are renting from Cape and Coast, you are in GREAT hands. They will take good care of you. We rented Magnolia at Secluded Dunes for an early June 2019. This house has one of the most stunning beachfront appearances with its scoop rooftop. The living room has soaring two story views, and you can easily see to the beach from inside the house. Those large windows also come with power shades, so you can keep the sun out at times as well. This is the largest home we've ever stayed in (7 bedrooms). The kids all had plenty of room, and those in the bunk rooms noted the mattresses were quite comfy (sometimes bunk room beds are not comfy). The location is very secluded. We saw only 2 or 3 other families nearby, and since the park was heavily damaged during the hurricane, there is not much foot traffic coming down from the state park. We really felt like we had a huge patch of beach to ourselves. It's nothing like being at Orange Beach or elsewhere where it's wall to wall people. The house worked well. The kitchen, living, and dining rooms were all updated recently, and the open floorplan is great for families. The kitchen has a WONDERFUL icemaker. It conked out during our trip, but Cape and Coast immediately sent a repair man, and he had that sucker up and running in minutes (they do take care of you WONDERFULLY). The fridge is a new Samsung with a convertible space (can be freezer or fridge), and I had to look up how to activate to freezer as it wasn't intuitive (but that's what Google's for). The kitchen is well equipped. There are PLENTY of plates, utensils, pots, pans, and more. The only thing we brought was our Margaritaville machine. Home has great outdoor space with loads of parking. Beach access is easy up stairs to deck and down to beach. Home has great AC and comfy beds and furnishings. If you need a big home, this one will work!

This was our first time renting from Cape and Coast and we're very pleased with everything. Anything we needed they immediately responded, also the ease of check in and out was awesome with the app.
