Over several years, we have stayed at three different homes on CSB, and Home By The Sea is definitely the best. Al and Susan put so much care into the details, it really is like home away from home. Super comfortable beds, beautiful décor, top of the line appliances- this one has it all. We are actually going to buy the same coffee pot that they have! It's a short walk to the beach, and there are plenty of beach accessories as well. Plus, the hosts are so gracious and informative. if you need anything, Al knows where to get it!
This was our 6th time to stay in this rental. We’ve stayed here over the last ten years and watched as the place has improved on perfection every time. The owners pay attention to detail and we feel like we are staying in someone’s home. The beds are still an upgrade from what you would expect, and the amenities are always top quality. The beach is a short walk that would allow you to carry anything you needed for the days on the beach. The upper deck is great for viewing sunsets and the middle deck is screened in completely (even under the floor) which allows for any time of day activities insect free. It is quiet here and never disappoints. Staying 6 times in 10 years should explain how satisfied we are with the place. Truly remarkable
We stayed the week of June 2-9 2018
Had a nice relaxing time
Home is beautiful and so clean
Thanks for sharing your home with us
First time we had been to the area
We spent nearly two weeks at Home by the Sea, and cannot recommend it enough! Al and Susan have obviously spent so much time to make this such a special home! Upgraded kitchen, carpet, floors - and so many thoughtful touches throughout - you will just love it! It is just a very short walk to the most gorgeous beach - we spent so much time there- swimming in the warm gulf, walking, bird watching, and even spotted dolphins swimming near us on two different occasions! Every day is different depending on the weather, tides and wind. Just incredible. We ate out at fantastic restaurants Al recommended in both Port St. Joe and Apalachicola - all great. We also did a fair amount of cooking in the spacious kitchen, enjoying the fresh fish and shrimp markets in the area. The beds are super comfy and with the high speed internet and several t.v.'s - you cannot ask for more. Al is great about communication and will always be just a phone call or text away. We will be back next year, would not think of staying anywhere else. Thank you Al and Susan for an awesome holiday!!!
We've been to Cape several times but first time staying at Home by the Sea. Al and Susan were great to deal with. Their home was very clean, spacious and had up-to-date furnishings. The master bedroom has it's own deck that has a view of the ocean. The (2) bicycles were nice to have for short rides to Scallop Cove or the Trading Post. I would highly recommend staying at Home by the Sea. We will definitely return in the future!!
We have stay in February for number of years, Al has made many nice upgrades, to make his property more appealing. The walkway to the beach makes for easy access. Everything you need is provided, beds are super comfy, linens are plush furniture is perfect. We are ready for next year!
Could not ask for a more perfect get-away!! Cape san Blas is a hidden jewel and Al and Susan 's home is a perfect place to enjoy it! Absolutely no complaints and felt very well taken care of!! Highly recommend!!
Many thanks to the Kites!
