Family Vacation

by Elizabeth E.
This house is in the perfect location! It was so easy to get the kids and gear to the beach. The house is beautiful and perfect for families. The kitchen is well stocked and it made cooking for 10 people a breeze. We would love to come back again.

Great time even with the rain

by Robert B.
Unfortunately we picked a week that had tropicals rains. However, this did not prevent our family from having a great time. Being right on the beach, it was easy to go out whenever the sun did come out. The location and the property were outstanding. We really enjoyed the bar area including a small refrigerator and seating area around the pool. The two balconies were the perfect place to relax and enjoy the site and sounds of the beach. The house was beautifully decorated and was well equipped. The master shower could use a little extra cleaning and a water spigot outside of the gate coming back from the beach would prevent a lot of sand being brought into the pool area. Wish we were still there right now. Would love to return to this property.

Fabulous Beach Vacation

by Luther A
Cottage by the Sea was a beautiful home; everything and more than we expected! We especially enjoyed the covered patio/porch by the pool. The home was emaculate, had a well-stocked kitchen, and beds were comfortable! There was one small plumbing issue while we were there. We called Cape and Coast and it was taken care of within a few hours ( rocket fast service ) ! (The Market on 5th Street was a great resource for anything we needed.)

The property was as nice as advertises and perfectly located for a quiet vacation. Heated pool is a real plus for cooler nights. The owner was available and very helpful. Great place to stay.

Perfect Family Vacation!

by Elizabeth Melancon
We absolutely loved this house! Everything about the stay was amazing down to the management company! They were absolutely helpful and awesome! The house is directly on the beach which makes it great with kids. The house was very well accommodated with everything you could possibly need. The pool was the best touch after a long hot day at the beach. Thanks Cape and Coast we will be back!

Awesome home directly on the beach!!

by Cathy Guillebeau
This beach house was everything we could have wanted and more. Well appointed kitchen; beds were comfortable; plenty of room -- and directly on the beach! The pool in the backyard was the icing on the cake. We didn't want to leave! I would definitely rent from Cape & Coast again!

Great stay at Cottage by the Sea!

by Brian Cupp
We enjoyed our stay. The house was very nice and well appointed. The view and proximity to the beach are excellent. Mexico Beach is still suffering with many businesses still closed. St Joe is a short ride for additional options. We would definitely return!

Amazing Stay!!

by AMANDA MCCLURE
We absolutely loved this property! The house is beautiful, and layout is fantastic! Upon arrival, the house was well-stocked and very clean. After a long drive, we couldn’t have asked for more. Check in and out on the mobile app made the process quick and saved a ton of time since we didn't have to travel to an office. The beach is beautiful and proximity is one of the closest we have experienced. We hope to come back again!!

Loved it!!!

by Patricia Tolley
The house was beautiful and super clean. Enjoyed the views from both decks. The pool was also wonderful to have after being in the beach. Have to say that Cape and Coast was awesome to work with—always friendly and helpful.

Cottage by the Sea was a perfect house for our family vacation!

by Elaine Addis
We booked this house through Cape & Coast Vacation Rentals and everything went very smoothly. From the time we booked it until the day of check-in they contacted us regarding various things about our upcoming stay, as far as rental gear (since we were flying and couldn’t bring beach gear), grocery delivery (which we did, and it was wonderful!) and they even allowed us to check in the house early since are flight was a few hours earlier than the regular check in time. I have absolutely no complaints about them. As far as the house, it was beautiful with nice furnishings, comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen and steps from the ocean! The pool is small, but certainly enough for our grandkids. I highly recommend Cottage by the Sea!

Cottage by the Sea

by Becky Simpson
This was by far one of the top vacations our family has had on the Gulf. The home was exactly as described and fit our needs perfectly. The kitchen was very well outfitted and the outdoor grill was very nice. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The pool is not huge but worked great for two grandchildren. The beach was beautiful and absolutely quiet and peaceful. The sunsets here are unmatched, don't miss them. The beach was mostly deserted and that was just how we wanted it! The restaurants nearby were good, the local grocery was good, and the people everywhere we went were so kind and helpful. We will absolutely by back and hopefully soon!

Great February Break

by Cindy Saarela
Stayed for almost 3 weeks in Feb. 2019. The house fit our needs well even when friends came to share some of the time with us.Kitchen was equipped well and made it easy for us to stay in for meals when we chose. We were close to town (Port St Joe) and as always the beaches here are quiet and beautiful. Cape and Coast staff were easy to work with and always responsive to questions or needs that we had. The area is still definitely in recovery from Hurricane Michael but we felt like we were helping the recovery efforts in a small way by returning to an area that we have come to love.
