A recent visit (Feb. 2019) revealed a resilient community still struggling to come back from a devastating storm. Debris and fallen trees still clog the marshes and roadsides and crews are working nonstop to repair the roads. It's sad to see how many houses were...More
Hurricane Michael washed away stretches of the road but the locals are rebuilding as the season allows. The cape ends at the beautifully preserved T H Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula park with indigenous deer. $6 park entrance fee per vehicle goes towards this recovery...More
Just beautiful. Will not be disappointed when you visit. Must visit and walk around. Shelling was perfect. Seeing it after Hurricane Michael was heartbreaking but the people here are so kind and hard working.
Rented a house here with adult family. The beach was lovely, but we were warned to take all our beach things in at night. However, we noticed that many people left their canopies up overnight. We loved the surf and enjoyed the Trading Post and...More
Cape San Blas is a trip back to Old Florida at it’s finest. There are only a few restaurants, souvenir shops on the Cape itself, and to get groceries you must go into Port Saint Joe. When you go, make sure you have everything you...More
Despite the continued building of houses, this was still a great pace t spend a week at the beech. The gulf and bay sides of the cape offer a great deal of aquatic wildlife encounters with people seeing rays, turtles, dolphins, share, crabs, fish, etc....More
Lots of damage but not near as bad as Mexico Beach. The government was already there putting roads back together and working on water lines. Places that had issues with erosion will need some assistance but for the most part, the higher grounds faired very...More

We own a house on the cape and rent in the summer. We are at the cape right now doing repairs to the house. There are many reasons to pick a spot as your vacation destination, but worrying about the storm really shouldn't be one of them unless you're averse to uncrowded beautiful white beaches that are a little far away from things like movie theaters giant shopping malls and other things that come with crowds and population. Don't get me wrong, the Cape did sustain damage from the storm. But anything you rent will be ready for your occupancy and there's nothing that has to be done to rebuild the ocean and sun:) If you need help finding a place, reach out. I'll be glad to help any way I can. Also be aware if you're driving you will see significant damage in areas like Mexico Beach. The power of the surge and the wind can't really be appreciated until you see it all in person. But if you think that kind of teaching moment isn't something that you want your family to see then perhaps make a plan to visit next spring break when most of the damage will be torn down or repaired. But I'm enjoying my time here more than I have in the past just because I am so aware of how powerful and awesome mother nature can be. Oh and the sunsets are reason enough to visit if only for a couple of days:)
My husband and I are thinking about staying in Port Joe/Cape San Blas in September. We would like to bring our 2 dogs with us. After checking out VRBO, it seems that there are no 1 bedroom rentals that are pet friendly. Once you get to the 2 bedroom+ rentals, the prices really start to creep up. Does anyone know of a 1 bedroom rental that is right on the beach and is also pet friendly?

Thanks todday and Wendy J. I was able to find a rental through the link todday listed. We are very excited about this trip with the dogs - I can't wait to see their reaction to the beach for the first time!! :)

How remote is Cape San Blas? How far is the drive to areas with restaurants? We have stayed along 30 A and enjoyed the little seaside shopping towns. Is there anything like that in the area?

Both Apalachicola and St. Joe are close by offering dining and shopping- 20 minutes either way. There are a few resturants in the area of Cape San Blas- the Indian Pass Raw Bar being the most popular but it gets very busy in the summertime. Personally I like the food options in St. Joe and the shopping in Apalachicola- though The Owl in Apalachicola has some mighty fine dining. This area is much more natural and not fu-fu like 30A. I adore 30A- it's an awesome place. San Blas and its...More

Recommendations for a condo/house for a picky person (5 Replies)
So, I'm a little spoilt in my past Florida beach vacations and I'm looking for my next great beach haunt. I have fond memories of a time we stayed somewhere on the beach near St. Augustine and thought I'd see if there's something here that could work. Here are my requirements, in no particular order other than "I want it all!": * Condo/House that is truly beach front - as in, nice swooshing and awesome view of the waves and wildlife (seagulls, pelicans, dolphins) from a decent sized...More

Really nicely 3 BR condos don't allow dogs. Probably why they are nice! That is a shame though as the beach is so dog friendly. Most condos are 2 BR but try Coral Reef Club or Hibiscus, both of which have oceanfront condos with 3 BRs. Good luck!
