The small bit of land that is Cape San Blas is one of the nicest vacation spots to be found along the Florida gulf coast. Connected to the mainland by a small spit of land, Cape San Blas has everything a traveler could desire: the pristine white beaches of Saint Joseph Peninsula State Park, water activities like fishing, kayaking, and boating, and the iconic Cape San Blas Lighthouse. While Cape San Blas has managed to keep its beaches clean and uncrowded, this small community on Florida’s Emerald Coast is also welcoming to visitors. There are many local restaurants serving up delicious seafood, and many vacation rentals to choose from. To help you narrow your search for your Florida home away from home, here are nine of the best vacation rentals to be found in Cape San Blas.

1. Colorful cottages by the sea (from 105 USD)

This rental is part of the Villas at Scallop Cove, a popular spot for vacationers that boasts many repeat guests. It’s easy to see why, when the villas have the perfect balance of charm and convenience. The row of colorful cottages has a beautiful view of the bay, and close proximity to necessities like a gas station and convenience store. You will also be within steps of as many activities as you could desire, like swimming on a private beach, launching boats and kayaks from the dock, and grilling outside on the patio.

The insides of the cottages are as bright as their exteriors, with colorful walls and bedding nicely complementing the neutrally colored furniture and wooden cabinets. They also contain all the amenities for your stay: fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning, and even washing machines. The minimum booking period is a three night stay, which goes up to a full week during the summertime. However, for a cottage that sleeps up to five people, this is a bargain, so nice that you’ll wish to stay the whole summer.

It is easy to get there by foot or to take the two bicycles provided by the host onto the nearby bike path which leads to the shore. They have even provided a kayak for visitors to take out on the water. If you desire to stay in for the evening, cook dinner on the grill, take advantage of the cable TV, or relax in the comfortable rocking chairs on the porch. With a minimum two night stay, this cabin is the ideal location for a couple to spend a weekend.

9. A lovely home close to Port St. Joe (from 174 USD)

The Casablanca is a home unlike any other. Situated on the strip of land that connects Cape San Blas to the mainland, its position is perfect for visiting the St. Joseph Bay State Park, or for driving up to the city of Port St. Joe. In Port St. Joe, you’ll find delicious eateries, unique shops, and landmarks like the historical Cape San Blas Lighthouse. Formerly located out on the cape, this lighthouse is well over 100 years old. After surviving wear and tear from storms and even an attack during the Civil War, it was finally relocated in 2014 after tropical storm Isaac eroded the shores too much for the lighthouse to safely stand there. Now it is located in Port St. Joe and is easily reachable from the Casablanca rental.

This rental is a three bedroom stilted house which can accommodate up to eight people. It is mere steps from the beach and located in a quiet spot with only a few other homes nearby. The Casablanca’s secluded location and proximity to local activities make it a wonderful option for a gathering of family or friends!

A largely undiscovered coastal paradise

Cape San Blas is not yet on the radar of many Florida vacationers. Its beaches are clean and uncrowded with the gentle, warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The quaint towns nearby have plenty of local flavor. If you choose the right, homey beach rental, your visit might end up feeling less like a vacation and more like you are a local yourself.
