About Shane Gutierrez
We are transplanted Kentucky Wildcats living in Georgia Bulldog country:) We are raising three God fearing beautiful, always busy, children. We always looked forward to our vacations, just to get away from it all. Our family of five has been vacationing at the Cape for over ten years! After vacationing around the Southeast, we decided the Cape was home for us! It has everything we ever wanted in a family vacation and something our kids always looked forward to year after year.
Shane Gutierrez purchased this House in 2015
Why Shane Gutierrez chose Port St. Joe
I can remember the first time I drove the lone street down the middle of Cape San Blas. I was shocked to see a place that looked untouched from the likes of other beaches we had visited prior. When I say we fell in love at first sight, I mean that! No high rises, No looking for the beach between sky scrapers, No crowded beaches, No worrying about where my kids were, just you and the beach. Over the years, a few local flavors have moved in, but the Cape has kept true to it's low key vibe, still making it our go to place to visit. Vacationing at the Coastal Cabin on the Cape, is a vacation that feels like a vacation. A family place to have fun relaxing with the noise of the waves, not cars and parties!
What makes this House unique
We love the bonfires on the beach, such an exciting way to end the day. Our kids love to go shelling in the early morning, always finding something to bring home! St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park is also a must for us, if you go to the bay side, you can walk out several hundred feet, collecting shells and snorkeling!! Don't forget your fishing pole either! The gulf and bay both offer unique fishing opportunities!! The Tradin' Post, our favorite go to, has everything you need as well, and its just around the corner!

Coastal Cabin is ahhhhmazing!
As soon as we walked in the door we were in awe at the beautiful decor. This home has been perfectly decorated, as if Joanna Gaines herself had handpicked each piece of furniture, wall art, lighting fixture, etc. Every room is immaculately clean and has every item you could imagine you need, and then some. The owners thought of everything when putting together this coastal oasis, you literally only need to bring your clothes.
The underneath/patio area of the home is also beautifully decorated with a swing, hammock, outdoor shower, picnic table, grill, and outdoor seating. This is like a whole extra living space where you can enjoy the evenings, watch the sunset from the hammock, and enjoy the coastal breeze.
I also highly suggest paying the extra to get access to the "toy box" rooms. Everything you can dream of is in those rooms from beach chairs, tents, umbrellas, scuba gear, sand toys, bikes, boogie boards, kayaks, paddle boards (everything you don't want to have to carry around in your car taking up space and adding sand to everything on the way home).
The owners of the home attend to all needs and questions immediately to ensure you have the best stay ever!
Area suggestions: Definitely visit St.Josephs Peninsula State Park to use the Paddle Boards & Kayaks, $6 entry for the entire family for a day pass & calm waters. Our favorite restaurants are Krazy Fish Grill & Shoobies Ice Cream(downtown Port St.Joe), and the Sandbucket Cafe on Cape San Blas Rd (just 5min from Coastal Cabin). Also, be sure to climb the lighthouse in downtown Port St. Joe, what a view!!
I could type 10 more paragraphs describing this wonderful home. Coastal Cabin is a true gem, and I can't say enough good things about this home and the level of service provided by the owners!! Looking forward to booking for years to come.
We love coastal cabin so much! We stayed last year for the first time and we were so excited to stay again this year! The home has been completely remodeled and it is phenomenal. It has such a beautiful, peaceful, coastal theme. We were just blown away at how gorgeous it is! Aside from the beauty of the home and the incredible views, I love not having to pack a bunch of stuff. You could literally bring food and clothes and you’d be set. The kitchen is very well stocked with any utensil or appliance you’d ever need! There are plenty of extra linens, blankets, and games. Our kiddos love the upstairs and the added bathroom upstairs was so nice! The arcade games were a hit with the kids and adults! I mean who doesn’t love Pac-Man?!
We all enjoy the toy closet as well. No having to pack sand toys, chairs, floats, bikes, anything! We love to kayak and enjoyed the new full face snorkel masks!
The location is perfect. You are right on the beach. The views are breathtaking! The Trading Post, Weber’s donuts and Shrimp Company all are within walking distance.
We all agreed we never want to stay anywhere else! Thank you Shane and Deanna for sharing your beautiful home with us!
We love Coastal Cabin!
We have stayed at Coastal Cabin for several years now. Shane and Deanna are absolutely amazing to work with. They have thought of everything when stocking this home. You literally do not need to bring a thing besides your swim suits when staying there. The kitchen is stocked so well with everything you could ever possibly need. The upstairs kids retreat is so fun and the perfect place for older kids to hang out. We love the toy closet with the kayaks and paddle boards. It also has every kind of beach gear you could need such as chairs, life jackets, floaties, etc. The home has been completely remodeled after hurricane Michael and it is absolutely stunning. It is decorated so beautifully but yet is still so comfortable and arranged perfectly for the family to sit around and enjoy board games or a movie. The downstairs underneath the house is also one of our favorite places to hang out. There is a swing, hammock, picnic table and grill. But the number reason we love this home is the breathtaking views of the ocean. I could sit on the deck and enjoy the view all day long. You can walk off the deck directly onto the sand and just a few steps to the water. We are already booked for next year and can not wait to return! Thank you Shane and Deanna for sharing your wonderful home with our family!
We are so Blessed that your family has chosen to return to our home year after year. We hope that our home continues to impress you as we always try to find ways to improve it for our guest. We are glad you loved the remodeled version of our home, we believe it is a very special place for families to relax and reconnect. Thank you, Shane and Deanna
This place is wonderful! The owners have thought of everything!
You can sit on the deck and see and hear the ocean, or go below and be out of the sun and hear the ocean and feel the gentle breeze while swaying in the hammock. There are tv’s in each room if you need them so everyone can watch their own shows at night after a long day at the beach. Your just a short drive to st. Joseph State Park which we love. We had everything we needed with the toy closet. Bikes for my husband, bookie boards, umbrellas, beach chairs, sand toys, you name it, it’s there. Hope to stay here next year.
A beach home perfect for the family
This beach house was perfectly situated to give the view you would love to see all day. This home was complete with everything we needed and more. I loved the option for the "toy box" as well. We enjoyed staying here and will definitely be returning.
We loved everything about our stay at Coastal Cabin! We have vacationed at Panama City, Gulf Shores, Orange beach, Destin, and Fort Morgan. Cape San Blas will be our go to place from now on. We loved that the beach was less crowded and more relaxing than some of the other places we have stayed. We also liked how close the house is to the beach. That is a must when you have 3 kids. We enjoyed the convenience of the Trading post being so close. Our kids enjoyed getting ice creme and donuts there. This house is stocked with everything you could need. We didn't have to pack a pack and play for our daughter and they even have a baby gate and booster chair for the table. My husband always likes to do a shrimp boil and most places never have a stock pot. This place does along with every appliances or gadget you could want or need. When they weren't on the beach,our boys loved playing the table top pool table. We had a small issue with the TV the first day we were there due to a storm the night before. Shane was accessible and had the problem fixed in no time. We all loved staying here so much we already booked for next year! Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us! We are looking forward to next year!
