Standing Ovation for this home and community

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Cape Escape for a 3-day weekend with friends. As others have stated, the kitchen is well-stocked and the furnishings and fixtures are lovely and in like-new condition - especially the memory foam-topped beds. We really enjoyed the amenities in the Ovation development - two pools, tennis courts, fitness center and the pier in St. Joseph's Bay. It was a real treat to be able to bring our two small dogs. The neighborhood is great for dog walks and the beach is a short 5-minute walk to the other side of Ovation across the street. We didn't need them, but I noticed two beach wagons in the storage area out back which would be perfect for hauling beach items. The hall closet downstairs is stocked with beach chairs and nice-quality tennis rackets! We were glad that we remembered to bring our Bose bluetooth speaker so we could stream music in the living room. I didn't notice a stereo. Overall - this place is amazing and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here or at another property in Ovation.

WE love the CAPE!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything and the owners have been very thoughtful with how they have stocked the kitchen and beach stuff. The beds have soft pads and there are plenty of tv's. We love the open family room and the kitchen or just hanging out on the balcony and looking out over the bay. Steps from the bay or beach with an awesome clubhouse pool and two tennis courts that do not see a lot of use. This is truly a 'get away" experience and we will be back!

Great House on a Beautiful Beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home on a quiet street with one of the most secluded beaches in the area. The home itself is spacious and comfortable with all the amenities and modern appliances. The white sandy beach is not crowded at all. We like that the cape itself is long and narrow allowing us access to the beach and the bay. This is a very peaceful place for a vacation, with or without the kids. We will definitely return.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need. Peaceful neighborhood; Within walking distance to both the bay and the gulf. One of the two pools was never occupied - perfect for a family who needs a little space for some rambunctious kiddos! This place provided the most perfectly peaceful vacation a mom could ever want!

Bought groceries at the Piggly Wiggly in town and also ate the Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St. Joe, and Coneheads on the Peninsula. Good food and service at both, but enjoying dinners at the house was even better. I highly recommend the crousants down the road at the donut shop but get there early before they're sold out.

This tops my list as best vacation ever by far!

First week at the Cape

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had a fantastic time at Cape Escape this week. The house was very comfortable and had every amenity possible. It was very clean and very convenient to both the bay and the ocean. The bayside pool was an oasis. The shore was pristine and not busy at all. The house came with flotation devices, a bike pump, high speed wifi, beach shoes ( a must when you walk around in the bay ) and nice views from the second floor porch. For rainy mornings there were plenty of dvd's to watch for both kids and adults. Although we didn't need them there is a double stroller, a baby gate and a pack and play for young children. We will definitely be back next year.
