Beautiful house.
We had 5 couples and our dogs, this house had plenty of space. It truly is beautiful, and we loved the couch on the deck where we could lounge comfortably and watch the water. The basketball goal in the pool was a fun touch and got used almost every day while we all hung out. The firepit was also a great extra, which we enjoyed hotdogs and smores around. Cape & Coast were very responsive when we had questions. Thanks for a great stay.

House is gorgeous
Unfortunately, we had to evacuate after just 2 nights due to a hurricane. We were able to return later the next day when the evacuation mandates were lifted. Everyone that I talked to at the management company was very nice and as helpful as they could be. The house is gorgeous and I love how close it is to the beach. The pool was very nice also. We had a large group and we all enjoyed our stay very much!!

A wonderful week at the beach
My family and I spent a wonderful week at The Porches. We had seven adults, five children and two dogs and the house was so spacious that it wasn't crowded at all. The kids loved the pool and we spent many hours on the uncrowded beach. We had a baby and thought that one bedroom had a crib in it but discovered it did not. After contacting the office about it they contacted another company and two people brought a pack & play and set it up. I had the master bedroom on the third floor and all my kids teased me about getting lost in it. I've never been to a beach house that had so much storage space! We've stayed in many houses in the area over the years, but as my Grandson said, "This was the best ever".

Perfect in every way!
This was our second visit at The Porches, and it is everything you could wish for. It’s not only beautiful, it’s comfortable. We bring our adult children and our grands along with our nanny. There were eight adults and three children. We love that the master suite is located on the top floor along with the main living area and kitchen. The young adults have their own living area when they need a little space. All of the bedrooms are comfortable as well as the living areas. The porches are very roomy with comfortable chairs. I love the elevator, and it’s especially helpful when loading and unloading your vehicles. The pool was perfect with its splash pad for the little one. The house was very clean with a well stocked kitchen. Our boys bring their boat and fish daily. The cleaning station on the ground floor is quite handy, and the parking was great! I just can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was. We will definitely be back again!

Wonderful house, on the beach. All the amenities. Would go there again. Property manager staff very responsive. Offer the following comments: >MBR shower calk coming loose, some mold/mildew, floor very slick. >Torrential rains on Wednesday left 16 inches of water in driveway; impassable for about 36 hours in a car. Suggest owner clear path to street next door, install a gate with lock/key for emergency use. >would be nice to have a notebook with how to operate things, location of things, details on trash pickup, etc. Include emergency numbers, nearest medical facility, etc. >

Beautiful !
The reatal was was exactly as decribed. No disappointments. Plenty of room for ten of us. Beautiful home on a uncrowed beach. We enjoyed every breakfast and sunset drinks on the porches. We have been vacationing at least one week a year on the gulf coast the last ten years. This home and the beach area has become our family favorite. One issue only. There was a leak under one of the kitchen sinks. We contacted the maintenance and a person showed up soon after to repair it. There was plenty of cookware and utensils. Ice machine was awesome . Pool was great for our 2 year old grandson . We highly recommend this home.

Another Great Year!
We just returned from our 3rd annual trip to The Porches! Once again, we so enjoyed the week. This house is perfect - close to the beach, private pool, every bedroom is great, and most importantly - the 3rd floor Porch! It is our favorite spot to hang out when not at the beach or in the pool. We had a minor issue with the elevator upon arriving, but sent a maintenance request via the mobile app and the serviceman arrived and fixed the problem the next morning. Wonderful service! We are already planning our 2023 trip.

The Porches was the perfect place for our family vacation. The home was beautiful. It had everything we needed and the furnishings were extremely comfortable. There was more than enough room for all of us. The porches were an added bonus as well as the pool. The beach was quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back!

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 Porches Beach Home (which sits right on the Beach) was perfect for our family vacation. It is a Beautiful house with high ceilings and spacious rooms. The lay out was perfect and there is plenty of space if someone needed quiet time. The 2 kitchens came in handy, as we always bring most of our groceries for the week. The elevator allowed my parents to move from floor to floor with ease and it was perfect for transporting luggage and groceries. The wrap around porches were awesome, and the one on the main level (which has two large tables) made it possible for all of us to eat together and enjoy the beach and sunset at dinner. While we are normally not pool people .. we did take advantage of having one, as it was a nice break from the beach. We all kept raving about the entire design of the place .. and we are all hoping to make it back to ... The Porches!!

Life on The Porches
Our entire family stayed at The Porches, including nine adults and three children. Each family had their own bedroom and bath, with ample gathering areas. The pool is oceanfront, and a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Someone was constantly enjoying the view from the wraparound porches. Perfect name for the house! The only thing bad I can say, is the grading of the driveway. Tropical storm Fred hit on Monday, and we could not use the driveway from then, on. It was still under water when we left on Saturday. Luckily, the neighbors were nice enough to offer theirs. The standing water also increased the mosquitoes.

Porches review - 8/2021
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was more than happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It was a wonderful house with beautiful views on the ocean. Substantial seating available and the pool and beach access were great. The space was laid out in very well. The bedrooms on the second floor were separated by the family room and closed off by picket doors which helped with noice and privacy. One minor annoyance was very slow internet and that the ocean was dirty due to a close by inlet. However, the house and ocean views were wonderful.

This year we did have a few minor issues - the elevator wasn't working when we arrived, but after we called it was fixed quickly. The ice maker also wasn't working and it wasn't fixed that week, but it was fine because we just ran and grabbed some bags of ice and we were fine for the week. We will be back in 2022 for sure!

We had a great week, found lots of shells the only down side was there was a lagoon right down from us and the water from it had our water coffee colored from the waves pulling it out and bringing it our way, that lasted for 4 days but the grandkids played in the ocean anyway. I would definitely stay in this house again.

Great place but drive way can flood
There is little to say that is wrong with this property. The house is tastefully well furnished, spacious and well planned. To use my big words... it's really nice! Minor issues are hard to close sliding doors and ocean side blinds need repair or replacement; never-the-less, The Porches is a great place to stay.... unless heavy rains are in your forecast. BE AWARE: In the event that heavy rain occurs, the drive way that crosses the front lot to the property is likely to go underwater as it serves as the low point for all water that falls on the adjacent cul-de-sac. The depth of the water will vary depending on the amount of rain and current ground saturation. Owners of low riding cars should monitor the weather and may opt to park at the head of the drive along highway should heavy rains be forecast. To give you some background, Hurricane Sally made land fall to the west in AL but it still dumped 10 to 12" inches of rain in Gulf county. 10 days post Hurricane Sally (the day of our arrival), we barely noticed a small puddle crossing the driveway so no worries but it rained hard (maybe 2 to 3") on our first night thus the next morning, "The Porches" had become "The Island". A very nice island but never-the-less marooned by 20 to 24" deep water on the drive. Thankfully the property manager arranged for a roll-away truck that ferried our cars to park along the road but I must say that we lost a day of leisure to one of worry and 3 inconvenienced days of hand carrying groceries from the road to the house via the eastern neighbor’s driveway/yard. The water was down to about 4 to 6" on the day of checkout. @The owner... appreciate your taste.. enjoyed your book selections and art; consider securing the Woodie original. Roll Tide! ;-) Manager's Response: Thank you for sharing your stay at The Porches. We are so sorry that you had to experience Hurricane Sally's rainfall that flooded the entire area. There was more rain experienced during this event than we faced from Hurricane Michael in 2018, a Category 5 hurricane; and we weren't even a direct hit from Sally. But the owners are working with the county officials to come up with a solution to keep this from ever happening again.

There isn't a bad bedroom in the house, the porches are beyond awesome and having a pool on the beach side and being able to see the ocean from the pool was dreamy.

Annual Girls’ Trip
Four women stayed at The Porches for a week in August 2020 and we absolutely loved this house! Yes, it was much bigger than we actually needed, but that allowed us to each have our own space when we wanted it. The icemaker was a dream; we bought one bag of ice the first day and never had to even use it! The view from the pool is awesome because it is right on the beach. The view from both the 2nd and 3rd floor porches is perfect, especially with the breeze blowing in from the ocean. We spent most of our time either on the beach, in the pool, or on the 3rd floor porch. It was a perfect annual girls' trip and we will probably be booking this same house for our 2021 trip.

There isn't a bad bedroom in the house, the porches are beyond awesome and having a pool on the beach side and being able to see the ocean from the pool was dreamy.

The Porches
Beautiful place. The only issue we had was the master suite was 77-80 degree at night. But Cape & Coast sent AC repair and electricians over 3 times to get it fixed. The electrician gave me his personal cell # in case we had problems at night. Can't ask for better service than that. Will be booking again.

Perfect Family Beach House
The Porches is an absolutely Breathtaking home!!! The layout was perfect for our family, in that there were areas that provided separation for more privacy. The master suite is located on the top floor, which for my needs, was ideal. In previous homes, the bedrooms were located below the living area, so if you went to bed before the rest of your group, you would be able to hear the noise coming from above. This is not the case, at The Porches. We didn't hear anything coming from the area below, either. The bedroom areas on the second floor could also be closed off with pocket doors allowing for even more privacy. We hope to return next July with our first grandchild!!! The layout of those bedrooms will be perfect for my son, his wife, and our new grandchild. The second kitchen, also on this floor, will be a big help since they won't need to go upstairs to warm bottles, etc. The furnishings were very comfortable and tastefully chosen. Not the typical indoor/outdoor stuff we have run into in the past. Overall, the best home we have stayed in so far.

Thank you for your review and we too are sorry you were unable to enjoy the week. Though The Porches sustained some damage, we expect it will be back soon and be better than before. A new pool is being added on the beach side of the house, and we really think you will appreciate all the changes that will be taking place.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Other than a few minor maintenance concerns *, the house was just as described. The size of the house and rooms provided ample space for all guests to share time together or tucked away for some solitude. The kitchen with its large island, allowed the group to prepare meals together. We spent a LOT OF TIME ON THE PORCHES enjoying the scenery. We will be back. * Trash didn't get picked up on Saturday, and an animal got into the cans and maintenance was alerted but never came out to pick it up.

Wonderful vacation at The Porches
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: 2018 is the 4th time we stayed at the The Porches. 3 vacations and 1 wedding. The Porches is a wonderful beach house and our large family loves staying there. As in any large rental there are a few issues I will mention. 1) The trash can holder track in the upstairs kitchen doesn’t work - will not pull out. This was broken last year also. 2) The trim piece on the exterior upper stair step is not secured and nails are showing. It too was like that last year. 3) We found several bags of trash in the garage and cigarette butts were found on the upper floor porch. The cleaning crew should have found these. Even with the above detractors, we still love this place. Our family plans to stay at The Porches again in 1 2019.

"The Porches" Beach House - Cape San Blas
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: 6/26/17 Our family highly recommends The Porches. We have stayed at The Porches for two summers (2016, 2017) and of this writing have already booked a week for 2018. The Porches is a spacious, beautiful, and well maintained beach house that allows our large family to take full advantage of it's size - we all can gather together for dinner or games and we can also find cozy places where we can hide away and have some alone time. The beach access is so convenient and the view from The Porches allows those at the house to watch what's going on at the beach. Pretty nice for older family members or those who need to stay at the house while a child takes a nap. We also found that electronic messaging of maintenance issues are handled immediately without any fuss or hassle. We sent a message via cell ph regarding a loose deck board and some protruding nails and it was fixed the next morning before the whole family woke up. I mean the repair man was in and out quick! Cape & Coast Properties is VERY responsive - unlike some of the other places we've stayed. The kitchen is well appointed and has every type of gadget that you might want when cooking - from an elec. griddle to electric mixer. The ice machine was never empty - and believe me, our large family uses a LOT of ice. We usually only eat out one night during the week - this year we tried the Sand Bucket located on the Cape. The food was good and reasonably priced. It also had a pretty wide selection of choices - sorry, no crab legs:( I'll conclude this eval the way I began. Our family highly recommends vacationing at The Porches - for the money you spend on this house, you'll find that it's worth every penny!

It is in very good condition, beautifully furnished and appointed and so comfortable. We loved having an elevator, especially for moving luggage and groceries in and out. The location is great for those who enjoy a quiet, uncrowded beach that is a very short walk from the house. The beach gear included with the rental was a nice bonus and so convenient. We loved dining out at Joe Mama's pizza and Sunset Coastal Grill. Both were excellent. An afternoon trip to Apalachicola was easy as it's only a 30 minute drive. We had lunch at Up The Creek Raw Bar and thoroughly enjoyed the food and laid back atmosphere. Our dog was even allowed to join us on the deck! This was such an enjoyable vacation largely due to the wonderful home we had. I highly recommend The Porches!

Thoughts from the Homeowner
“Going to the beach” has always been one of our family’s favorite trips, and when we discovered the more private beaches along the Gulf Coast between the towns of Apalachicola and Port St Joe, we knew this was where we wanted to build our beach house. There are no huge crowds, no bumper to bumper traffic and not so much commercialization that destroys the natural beauty of the area. We would be delighted to have you bring your family or friends (up to 13 of them) and spend time in our beach home, “The Porches.” No matter the ages of the guests, there is something for everyone to enjoy – playing in the waves, throwing a football on the beach, a friendly game of bocce ball in the sand, reading a good book under the umbrella, or simply walking along the beach picking up interesting shells along the way. Or if you prefer to lounge on the porch or sundeck with an endless view of the Gulf, there are plenty of seats available. There are even some great quiet spots in the house where you might slip away for an afternoon nap. When the sun goes down and the stars twinkle and the moon shines brightly over the ocean, there is room in the large kitchen for everyone to gather and have fun preparing and enjoying a meal together. Watch a movie, play a card or board game, work on a puzzle, or just sit on the porch enjoying good conversation and time together while the sound of the waves provides wonderful background music. Memories are made here that will be written in your heart forever…..
