Nautical Sky Secluded Dunes - January 2022
Rating Details: The property manager was more than 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: The Nautical Sky property was beautiful, well maintained and located in a beautiful area of Cape San Blass. The Secluded Dunes community is right next to the state park and very quiet. Several times we saw bucks with antlers in our yard and the general area. This our fourth trip to CSB in two years but this is our first time renting from Cape and Coast. The staff were great. When we contacted them with questions or asked for help, they responded immediately and took care of us ASAP. We will definitely use Cape & Coast for future trips to this beautiful paradise.

Love This House
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 absolutely loved this house! It was super clean and in great condition. The layout was fantastic and having only one floor to deal with was definitely a plus!! We had a party of 9 and had plenty of room. The giant table was really, really great with room for everyone. The hot tub was by far the favorite over the pool, but both were awesome. We also loved having a bathroom on the ground level. It was so convenient! We were so grateful to be allowed use of beach boardwalk of the house in front us. We did, however end up mostly walking through the empty lot down the street because we didn’t want to crowd the family that was staying in the house. We love Cape San Blas and had a lovely vacation. The only drawbacks were the kitchen items such as the bowls, utensils and pots and pans could use some updating.. it was kind of a hodge podge of different items. And, it would be so helpful to label the exact remote and button to push to turn on the TVs. There were SIX remotes in the bowl and we had no clue which one to use. We had to call the rental company to help us and still we never got one of the TVs in the bedroom to work. However those are very trivial things in the scheme of how great this house is!! We have been coming to the Cape for 6 years now and this house was definitely one of the favorites!!

Great home for the family!
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: This house was perfectly equipped for our family. (9 total with 2 kids) This is our sixth year to the cape and our first time in Nautical sky. The house was much bigger than it seems and one level which was great for the kids and grandparents. The refrigerator on the ground level was a great touch. There was construction going on where you would access the beach. So the neighbor allowed us to use their boardwalk but it did have a good bit of stairs. Only issues we had was the elevator made a beeping noise all week that was not resolved (maintenance came the first day we called in a timely fashion and again the next day) Also the wifi did not work after the first day. ( I didn't mind being able to disconnect but the grandparents did) Overall great home and great experience!

Have to really search hard for the pits!!! Neighbor directly across the street shared access to ocean which was a surprise peak!!! Fun red or blue or white lights in pool and little fire pit for parents to watch kids in pool at night.

BITTER SWEET AWESOME RENTAL!
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: THE SWEET!: Without a doubt, Nautical Sky is an awesome CUSTOM BUILT HOME! One level, elevator, pool! GROUND LEVEL: Huge storage area, Rest Room, A 2nd Full sized refrigerator/freezer, Hot/Cold outdoor showers (2!), Fish Clean Station, Enormously large full shaded parking area, tasteful paver driveway and pool deck. MAIN LEVEL: Excellent large spacious floor plan! A newer home with the latest in all appliances including a wine cooler and an ice machine that produces a lot of ice! The easiest to load in and out of beach house I have ever rented! The original sand road was under constant construction during our stay. Concrete curb and permeable Bahama Stone top coat being added! It too will be awesome once completed!

THE BITTER: Only 2 issues! 1) I specifically chose this rental due to the described and assigned relatively short and level deeded beach access sandy path! At age 73, the wife and I cannot handle long multi staired boardwalks well. Hurricane Michael took away the original boardwalk beach access assigned to this rental and a home builder has now blocked the remaining "deeded beach access sandy path (18 feet wide)" with a dumpster and construction equipment. We were advised the day of our departure of this bad news! We were instructed to use a neighbors boardwalk across the street. It was nice but very long and contained steep stairs/steps and I was not comfortable imposing on even a gracious neighbor. As fate would have it, my son knew the neighbor and we adjusted. The plan is to restore the assigned beach access for Nautical Sky in the future, but until then.. IT HAS NO REAL BEACH ACCESS! 2) Surprisingly, as new as this rental is, all of the mattresses are shot! Spooned out, soft, spongy and noisy. Not unbearable but not comfortable nor to the standard this otherwise awesome custom home deserves!

Cape and Coast could have been more timely and up front with the beach access and road contruction issues! I noticed only 5 star reviews are

Beautiful Beach Rental - Loved Heated Pool!
Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Well-designed floorplan with great amenities. Overall, house felt very new and clean. We loved the heated pool (paid $375 extra to heat). But be prepared that much of the area is under construction--although it didn't really bother us; kids actually liked to watch--seems likely to continue into 2022. The road isn't even paved yet. Also, hurricane destroyed the public beach access near this house and it has not been rebuilt (nor any signs it will be soon). Make friends with neighbors to use their beach access, or else it will be a long trek. Hot tub gave us issues throughout the stay--difficult to get & stay hot. The pool maintenance guy seemed to think it was because the filter was due to be changed, so I would suggest that the rental company switch to more frequent changes (we were told they are only changed yearly). But, overall, I would recommend this beach rental--it lived up to the pictures!
Emily H. - Posted: 2/27/2021
Thank you so much for your kind words Emily. To clarify the public access for this home is actually a sand path walk over. It is pictured in the listing and is approximately 500 ft. from the home. The board walk you are referencing is not a community one but a private one that belongs to lot owner where it is located. The issue with the hot tub has been resolved. It was actually a power supply issue, the pool tech thought it MIGHT have been the filter but after looking into it further found that an electrician needed to be called out. We contract with a professional pool service and defer to their expertise on when equipment filters need to be changed out and are open to that being done as often as it is needed. So we will follow up with them to see if they have a different recommendation. Secluded dunes is a private rd. and has been gravel since the inception of the HOA nearly a decade ago. The good news is the HOA is currently starting the paving process and the project is due for completion before summer!

I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Really impressed with the house & cape & coast. Some small issues (very small!) 1) some fruit flies cane out of sink our first day & stuck around for much of our stay 2) beach access was washed out so had some difficulties getting out to the beach, but we managed �� 3) animal feces (diarrhea) on back steps Again, none of this was a show stopper! We truly enjoyed our stay at xanadu!
Patti F. - Posted: 10/5/2019
Thank you for sharing your stay with us. We do apologize for the 3 items that came up and we would have gladly taken care of that for you had you let us know. The feces is most likely from our local wildlife since this property borders one of our Florida State Parks. They are so much fun to watch, but they are wild. We are glad it did not impede your fun during your stay.

Perfect Place
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: Xanadu, was an awesome place to stay, we had two families with three kids and Xanadu was a perfect fit. It was a blessing that our Barrier Dunes Rental was canceled and we had a chance to choose another spot and Xanadu did not disappoint. The under counter ice maker was a life saver. It alone saved us several trips to the store to buy ice. We enjoyed the screened porch facing the beach every morning with our coffee. We will definitely come back to Xanadu.
