We had such a fun time...4 children, our dogs and my husband and I were extremely comfortable and at home for the week! The house had everything we needed and had gorgeous sunrise views over the bay and a short walk to the gulf for sunset views. We felt very much at home. We also loved the area of cape San blas and port st Joe...so many options for things to do but not extremely commercialized.
Clean and the beds we used were comfortable but the couches and chairs in the living room are completely worn out. There is a broken cabinet in the kitchen and one of the dining room chairs is broken. All of the chairs around the table on the deck are broken. One of the lamps in the bedroom can only be used by plugging it in at the outlet. the linens on the beds are the only ones provided and there aren't linens on all of them. One towel and one wash cloth is provided for each person. View of the bay is great but the view of the gulf is mostly houses, electric lines and lights from a real estate office. Internet service is intermittent and there are no directions for using the T.V.'s. The dock is nice but the bench on it is falling apart. Needs work.
I'm so sorry you were not happy with your stay. I wish you would have contacted us during your vacation to give us the opportunity to make your experience the best possible. The living room furniture is 2 years old so I'm surprised that you found it uncomfortable but we do not sit on it we just clean and maintain, we will review this issue. All the chairs on the deck have been replaced. We were unaware of the dining room chair and cabinet so thanks for bringing this to our attention and we will repair or replace. The dock is shared, I will let the owners know to contact their neighbors and order a repair. We only supply one towel and wash cloth per person which is stated in our rental agreement. We strive to make every guests experience exceptional and hope that anyone visiting one our property is not happy to let us know as soon as possible so that we can make accomidations.
The property is adequately furnished and offers great views of the sunrise. On a clear night you can see a sky full of stars. I have a 22foot bay catamaran that I was able to navigate in. As long as you are cognizant of the tides the water depth is about 1.7 feet at low tide and 2.6ft at high. It is deeper along side of the dock. The outdoor shower is great when you need to rinse after being out in the boat. The boys loved the loft. The oak trees lining the driveway need to be trimmed as they left a 10 foot scratch down the side of my full size pickup. Bug spray is a must if there is a light wind no seeums and mosquitoes are thick around the property. The county did spray one of the nights we were there. The lot is shared by another property and their kitchen light and blinds were left on and open all night which lit up the rental property quite a bit. Theven light also made the stars difficult to see. The time of year we went it seemed to be quite and not that busy around, traffic was light and there was no wait in any of the places we ate. We would recommend this place and are hoping we are fortunate enough to head back next year. Beautiful views, and the trader post just down the rode was stocked with just about everything you could imagine. Very pet friendly our dog actually fell in love with one of the toys that they had there and we are ordering one for us at our home.
Thanks for staying with us. This is an amazing spot for sunrises and close to both the Trading post and the Scallop Cove for those last minute snacks, ice cream donuts..... We are addressing the tree trimming and neighbors lights. Come back and visit. Dawn, John & Mary
Great stay at Flip Flops and Tank Tops. The house was very comfortable for our party of four and although we did not have children in our party, I could see where it would be a great place for a family with kids. The kitchen was by far one of the better equipped kitchens of any house I have rented on the Cape and I have rented several that were over twice the price of this home. We were looking to stay on the Bay, as opposed to beach side, since we are considering purchasing a home on the Bay. This stay convinced us that the the Bay is definitely the place to be. With several public beach access points nearby, we did not miss the fact that we were not beachfront. Short walk to the Trading Post for any items you may need. Do NOT miss the sunrise from the upstairs room or the sunset from the upstairs porch. Would definitely recommend this home. The owners have provided chairs, kayaks, and even bowls for the four legged members of the family.
Please come back and stay with us again. We appreciate your feedback. Gulf Breeze Vacation rentals. Dawn, John & Mary
This was a great place to stay for my family. Very nice house. Water is not deep enough to keep a boat on the dock but there is a launch on the State Park.
At low tide our dock can accomodate about 1.5ft and at high tide about 2.5 ft. depending on the time of the year sometimes it is deeper. Please come back and stay with us again. We appreciate your feedback. Gulf Breeze Vacation rentals. Dawn, John & Mary
This was our first time at Cape San Blas. The rental home was perfectly located with easy access to the bay and the beach. The home was very clean, spacious, and had all the comforts of home to include Internet and cable TV-even Netflix! The outdoor grill and fire pit were great. If you choose to stay in for dinner, all cooking utensils are provided to make a great meal. We also had time to go into town and really enjoyed how friendly everyone was. And if you fish, we saw beautiful fish jumping out of the water right near the dock at the bay! We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this property. Five stars all the way!
We appreciate the time you took to send us feedback and so glad you loved Flip Flops and Tank Tops. Gulf Breeze Vacation Rentals John, Dawn & Mary
We had a delightful time in this bayside rental. Having stayed at Cape San Blas on the beach side, I had no idea how wonderful the bay side was. We spent our mornings and late afternoons watching eagles and osprey in the wonderful bird refuge on the bay. We also enjoyed tremendously the kayaks that allowed us to paddle the area. Fishing was fabulous from the dock. The house is only a short walk to the beach side, so sunset beach walks were no problem and it was wonderfully convenient to the only existent stores on the cape. And the house itself was absolutely perfect for our stay. Outdoor eating area, a fire pit, outdoor shower, and a very well appointed kitchen where I could cook the fish we caught! Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable and plentiful, with an entire upstairs area for my daughter to hang out in. We actually called to continue our stay another day once we were there and the owners were very accommodating. A beautiful place to relax and hang out.
This beautiful home on the bay was beyond our expectations! A fantastic view of the sunrise every morning, weather permitting! We had a bit of a toss from hurricane Patricia when she blew thru the Gulf! But let me tell you what a wonderful home to be bunkered down in! Watching the storm blow in from the bay was exciting and cozy at the same time. After that, amazing blue skies and like I said fantastic sunrise on the bay. The walk to the beach is short and perfect for a doggie walk. This home had everything we needed and then some! The dock was great for fishing, we caught speckled trout,( small guys, catch and release) bait fish,catfish and actually one regulation size Redfish! What a charge! The kitchen basicly had everything we needed ( except a maybe a cookie sheet for the oven.) Bedrooms are fantastic, loved the porches off the bedrooms. Everything this home extended to us, we fell in love with. Thank you, we hope to return next year. Blessings to the homeowners for having us. Oh, I cant forget the Trading Post grocery just a couple of blocks down. Great people and not bad prices! They saved us more than once, thanks to them as well. Again, Thank you. Kelly, Rob and Max
We had a fantastic time. Sunrises were outstanding. Kayaks were great fun on the Bay. Quiet seclusion. The ONLY drawback was that the carpet in the downstairs could stand to be replaced. However, overall the location, amenities and experience was awesome. Been to the Cape about 15 times but our first time staying on the Bay side.
We have been back from FlipFlops & TankTops for a week now & are so ready to go back! What better way to begin & end the day than being able to watch the sunrise & set w/o having to leave your home?The sunrises from the deck or the dock are just breath taking!! And sitting on the top deck w/the breeze off the ocean when the sunsets...oh we just didn't want to leave! The house was not only beautifully decorated but the kitchen had it all. Can not say enough wonderful things about your home Dawn & thank you for sharing it w/us. We are already planning when we can come back.
This house has everything we wanted. Incredible sunrises over the bay, and with the island right there the bird watching was great. We really enjoyed all the decks. Plenty of spaces to enjoy coffee or cocktails. Having the kayaks was a huge plus. We would jump in them for a sunset paddle (with an adult beverage of course) or a fishing excursion. Having the state park 5 mins down the road for snorkeling was the best! We saw so many things underwater. The bikes were fun for a after dinner cruise for ice cream. We would rent this house again for sure.
We were very pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the Bayside of the Cape is! We usually stay on the Beachside, very happy with the easy access to fishing and kayaking! The Beach is really close and you have a view of the sunsets from the upper bedroom as well! House decorated nicely with a costal feel. Only reason we did not rate excellent was the grill was difficult to use and the AC went out twice....the property management addressed it quickly though! Definitely would stay again! Fire pit an excellent touch!!
Thanks so much for the review. The A/C has been repaired and the grill was replaced this week. Let us know when you are returning. Thanks for staying with us. Dawn,John, Deb and Matt.
My husband and I stayed at Flip Flops for a week in May and had a wonderful time. We really enjoyed the dock, the kayaks and the fire pit. It's just a short walk across the street to the beach. The house was well appointed and very clean upon arrival. I would suggest adding a colander to the list of kitchen items as we made pasta one night and realized there was not one. Other than that, everything was perfect. We would definitely recommend this house to others and will likely stay here again in the future.
My husband, teenage son and I stayed at Flip Flops for the long Memorial Day weekend. This cottage was fantastic and the perfect size for what we needed. The cottage is nicely decorated with comfortable beds and furniture. The kitchen is nicely stocked. We loved the dock and the ramp for easy kayak entry into the bay; much better than the shallow murky water you have to wade in at other properties. Would definitely rent this cottage again!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at Flip Flops. We thought the cottage was well appointed and very comfortable. Perhaps a footstool for the club chair would be a good addition and another floor lamp for easier reading. Water depth at dock a bit tricky, especially for boats. Great for kayaking. Will go back. Nancy and Larry
Our time was well spent and very relaxing. Loved the views and how clean the house was. Loved being so close to the beach, just a small walk across the street. Would recommend this rental . Only thing reason not 5 stars is would have been nice to have a screen between queen bed and bunk beds upstairs to give a sense of privacy when sharing that space. But loved it overall
My husband and I just returned to snowy New York after a two week stay at this very nice rental. It is not often that a place is better than even the pictures, but that was the case here. Gorgeous view of Bayou with amazing birdlife, furniture was comfortable, everything was clean. A bit of noise from the only close neighboring rental property (tree removal with bulldozer), and no blinds to block the early morning sun, but aside from that the place was great. Just a short walk to the ocean, and had the weather been nicer (it was generally 50 and rainy) we surely would have tried the kayaks out. All in all the best VRBO we have stayed in. We enjoyed it a great deal. What a view!
