Our family started coming to Cape San Blas twenty years ago and immediately fell in love with it. It has the feel of 'old Florida' with no high rise condos, no crowds, and no hurry. The minute we make the turn our onto the cape, I can feel myself relaxing. My husband, Paul, and I wish the same for you and your family and are thrilled to be able to open our home to you. You will make memories to last a lifetime!
My husband and I currently live in Gulf Breeze with our 3 children and 2 labs and 1 English foxhound.
anita marie hitchcock purchased this house in 2012
We always wanted to own a home where the minute you woke up, you were looking straight out at the water and sugar white sand. I wanted my kids to have the same experiences and wonderful memories that I hold so dear of going to my grandparents beach house as a child. Cape San Blas is that perfect place that people don't even think exist anymore. It is the place where families leave all of their chairs, toys and tents out on the beach each night and come back to them again the next day. It is the place where generations of families come to spend time together getting to know each other again without the crowds and noise of big crowded beaches with their high rises, long lines, waits, and congested traffic problems.
We love that our home sits on 1/2 an acre right on the Gulf. If gives us a little added privacy and room. We have balconies on the upstairs and downstairs that go all the way across the front and back of the house You can even have fabulous views of the beach from the front decks.
After our Disney trip we stayed at Tide Together for a few days of rest and relaxation. Everything was great - clean, comfortable, plenty of space, high-end kitchen and grill, and easy beach access. I've rented through VRBO before and the owners were the most helpful and responsive of anyone that I ever worked with. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing time at the beach, we would highly recommend this home.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Tide Together. The house was perfect for our family of ten, including four young grandchildren (ages 3 mos. to 8 years). It was beautifully decorated by the owner with all the comforts of home. The property was very well maintained and the owners were very attentive to any questions we had. It was by far the nicest vacation home we have stayed in and would highly recommend it to families with children. We would love to come back for a week in 2015.
We love, love, love you home! I was terribly worried you might have to come kick us out :)
You were so easy to work with & although we have never met you your spirit and happiness is felt in each room & we feel we have been staying with friends! And what a gorgeous home - So happy to be here, enjoying the ocean & special times together as a family - we too, feel "Tide Together".
Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us! We'll be back!!
Our family has vacationed at Cape San Blas for over 20 years. This year we were blessed to have rented Tide Together and had a wonderful time. The house is beautifully furnished while being child friendly. Our extended family included children ages 9 to 4 months, so the bunk room, the children's book selection and toys were a great hit. We also appreciated the high chair, baby gate and monitor. If you are looking for a house that offers all of the comforts of home plus being steps away from the gorgeous beach, Tide Together is the place for you!!
Our family has vacationed in Florida for many years and this is by far one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in. It's not only decorated beautifully, it is so clean! And that is so very, very important! So well appointed, all of the bedrooms are so beautiful and the kitchen has everything you will ever need! Owners, Anita Marie and Paul are very considerate in returning emails and so nice to deal with! We have never stayed in Cape San Blas before but loved the beautiful and quiet beaches! We went Kayaking in the bay and had a great time, but mostly we enjoyed grilling out at night and just relaxing between the pool and beach and the deck. The guys did golf one day at Port St. Joe and enjoyed that very much also. We had four families - 8 adults and 6 kids and had enough room for us all.... really a great set up in the home for large families! We usually vacation in Destin, but after visiting the Cape and not having to fight for a spot on the beach and staying in Anita Marie and Paul's beautiful home, we will definitely be back to this well kept beach secret! Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us!

Our second stay at Tied Together, winter and now early summer. Hosted 5 families consisting of 9 adults and two grand children. The home is easily comfortable for more.
We have stayed at 90% of the prime beaches in Florida and live in Pensacola, 10 minutes from Santa Rosa Island and its white beaches and National Seashore. The Cape and this home put us in a new dimension. Equisite describes all rooms; super family kitchen and perfect dinning area looking to the sunset.
Location takes you the Florida of 100 years ago, and there are few places left in that category.
Safe for children of all ages. Wonderful private pool at end of driveway, a retreat for the 21st century. Bedrooms better than home, so clean and with views and privacy.
Anita Marie and Paul have thought of everything, Each client is special to them.
We will return in the fall. Bring several cameras and your favorite cook book. Julia Child would love this kitchen. Great WI-FI, great access to beach, and very private.
Thank you Anita Marie and Paul for providing the best college friend reunion ever.
Cape San Blas is located minutes away from Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Both of these towns have great locally owned restaurants with fantastic seafood. There is also a well known don't-miss local 'dive' on the road to Apalachicola, Indian Pas Raw Bar.
