Guestbook comments from the owner
We have been coming to the Cape for over 20 years and thank the owner Dawn and the agent Coastal Joe for making this a memorable June 19-26 vacation. Cape Cottage fitted the needs of our large family and we've made our reservations for 2011.

John and Dawn welcome you to our home. We have been vacationing at the cape for over 18 years and have owned property on the cape for 12 years. In 2008 we purchased Cape Cottage because of its great location on Haven Rd. We are first tier but share an oversized beach front lot with 3 other homes. The boardwalk to the beach comes right to our back door making beach accessibility terrific and the screen porch is to die for. Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Dawn and John

Dawn Lounsbury purchased this house in 2008

We chose this home because we wanted to be away from the busy roads and congested neighborhoods. We wanted to be first tier to better protect our home from the wear and tear of those gulf wind.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
The home worked perfectly for our family of nine and two boston terriers. My mother uses a walker and the elevator made it easy for her to enjoy the home. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the various beach toys. We had no concerns with the home and would stay here again.

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
Very disappointed with the state of this home as well as lack of customer service from owners. The home was unclean when we arrived, filthy air filters (dust was actually hanging from it), stained carpet, stained sofa and love seat, horrible mattress on pull out sofa (with no mattress pad). Refrigerator never worked properly would not maintain temperature and the water dispenser leaked all week on the kitchen floor. We had to buy ice and a cooler to store our food so it would not spoil. Garbage Compactor did not work, gas grill was filthy and did not light. The pool was also filthy and cloudy all week. The second floor door handle actually fell off and owner said they would repair and did not.
Loved Cape San Blas and will definitely return but would never rent from these homeowners again. Very disappointed. These homeowners were not prepared for guests nor are they focused on customer service.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry that our guest had anything other than a wonderful experience at our home and with our service. This Guest arrived Saturday after 4pm(check-in time) and we received a call about 9pm stating the refrigerator was not cooling and that they had turned the fridge setting on its coldest setting. This refrigerator is less than 1 year old and we have not had one complaint with this fridge. We have had problems in the past with renters filling refrigerator with warm food and it taking 24hrs for the fridge to catch up. With this being said we have no repairmen on the Cape at 10pm on Saturday night. On Sunday morning we made a service call request, but since it would take a few days to get a repairman to the Cape we drove to Panama City and bought another fridge to put in the guest storage to make sure our guests would have a working fridge available. Sunday afternoon John and I delivered the fridge and the “problem frig” was working just fine. Our guests mentioned that the front deck door handle was stripped out but it was not a problem because they were using other doors and not to worry about the repair. The handle was repaired during the following Saturday turn so as not to interfere with our renters. Other than the fridge and door handle the guests said our home was great. We did not hear from our guests the rest of the week or until they sent this review. Unfortunately these guests left our home in filthy condition with damage and were charged accordingly. Our wonderful cleaners were able to have our home ready for arriving guests by 4pm. PS: both refrigerators are working just fine and there are now two refrigerators at this home.
We strive to go above and beyond the needs of our guests to make sure every experience is as good as it can be.
John and Dawn

Loved our time at Cape Cottage AGAIN!

  • 5 of 5
This was our second stay at Cape Cottage and, once again, we were overjoyed with our stay and the beautiful home. Our dog, Kirby, also enjoyed his time on the beach. We continue to be amazed by the property, the beautiful beaches, and the overall furnishings of the home - especially the kitchen. We knew in returning this year that we didn't need to bring anything from home that was "missing" from the rental. The home was very clean and the owners were very responsive when we needed to reach them. As our friends would stop by for a night on their way further South, they would fall in love with Cape San Blas AND our beautiful home. Fun to have others feel as we do!! We especially enjoyed the take-out steamed shrimp from "The Pig" in Port St. Joe and the oysters from Up the Creek restaurant in Apalachicola. In short, we'll be BACK next year!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5
The house is great. Every bit as nice as the pictures. Well equiped and clean. Although the weather was bad for the entire week we were glad we had such a nice house to enjoy. Love the Cape San Blass area. The only con would be is that it is not directly on the beach. You still have views of the ocean and a boardwalk to the beach. Owners are great to work with. I am sure we will go back

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5
This property was very cleanand is exactly whats advertised. There were more items available for our use then we had come across in other houses. Rooms had plenty of space and the house is built to suit larger families or groups. Will contact John and Dawn before our next trip to rent from them again. Thanks for the great hospitality and wonderful house. The Taylor family

This home is F.I.N.E.!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
When we drove up to the house with our 6 year old grandson, all he could saw was "wow, this house is big!" Big it was, enough to hold all 11 of us comfortably! There are big rooms, adequate kitchen supplies, plenty of beach toys for the kiddies, and even a fishing pole. The house is beautifully decorated, and the owners are readily available with any answers you may need. I heartily recommend this location with its easy access to the beach AND pool. I think, like us, you will love it. My grandchildren, and children,want to return right now!!!
