This charming little house is one of the best equipped of any home we which we have stayed in our 50 years of vacations on The Cape. Spectacular sunrises! Privacy. Quiet. Coastal Joe has always been responsive to any problem. We are not sure we like the new thermostat which seems to be controlled elsewhere and tv service is limited but that is not an issue with us.

The property 8 Knots was good for my family of three for a long weekend stay of 5 nights. It was ideal being able to rent shorter than a full week for our working schedules. The property was exceptionally clean and there was an apparent focus on the attention to details of the cleaning crew. The only negative of the property was centered around the dock and decking being in poor condition. It appears both the dock and deck have been patched in many places but mother nature has taken her toll on all visible boards. For a minimal investment it would go a long ways for the guest to have an ease of mind that the boards won't break or crack beneath their feet or their children's.

The location is great. The house is located within 0.3 miles of two good locations providing coffee/food/gas/clothes/ice cream/ boat rentals/ tackle/ bait. Several good restaurants within a short drive. Fantastic sunrises over Bay. Home was clean and property fairly well maintained. Home is as pictured. If you have never stayed in this area of the panhandle biting bugs can be an issue at times of the year. If you are someone who the mosquitoes like be prepared and bring bug screen or some other deterrent.

we had a good experience at 8 knots. It was clean and attractive inside. The screened area under the building looked unattended and the wood decking is in need of sanding, as there are many splinters. The dock was great and the location too.

Beautiful beach house overlooking the bay. Two queen bedrooms and 3 twins in the upstairs loft. Loft is only accessible by built in ladder so that may be a hindrance for some. Kitchen is well stocked although one should bring paper towels if wanted. Only one roll of tp in each bathroom so you may need more of that, depending on group size and length of stay. You also need to bring your own shampoo etc. I mention these things because you just never know what each rental has or is missing but we truly loved this house. Clean and nicely furnished although, if you need the futon for sleeping, I would bring an air mattress to put on top of the futon mattress.

We're so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Come back and see us!

felt like we were being watched with 6 cameras surrounding the house
no cable tv for rainy days
only one tv in the entire house
the kitchen counters and cabinets were overrun with ants
there was no grill to cook on
there were no outside lights to use downstairs

Manager's Response

There are two flood lights/cameras and a ring doorbell outside. The outside cameras are not for monitoring guests, they are part of the house security system. No cameras are located inside the home. Unfortunately in the past residents of the Cape have had numerous burglaries when the homes are vacant. In the past our home had been burglarized and also random strangers have taken the liberty to use the property and private dock without authorization for their recreational use. The listing for the home clearly states no cable television. The home is equipped with a smart TV that allows guests to stream Netflix, Prime, or any of their personal accounts for viewing. Many local broadcasting networks are also available. The ants are carpenter ants which can be a nuisance at times in the kitchen area when the Cape is experiencing excessive rain. The house is treated for insects, although due to the natural habitat surrounding the house and rain sometimes problems like this might be experienced. I apologize and had the guest taken the time to inform Coastal Joe the problem would have been quickly resolved. The statement about not having a grill is false. There is a new gas grill clearly visible located under the house. There is a total of 14 outside lights not including solar lights. The light switches are easily found at the entrances of the house and below the house. Motion sensor and solar lights are located at the top of the steps and below on the landing as required per code. A ceiling fan with a light is also in the screened room below the house. 8 Knots is not a five star hotel, but that is not what a visit to the Cape is about. When you come to the Cape it is to relax and enjoy the numerous activities that it’s beauty can offer.

Eight knots provided a wonderful experience for us. We have been vacationing in Port St. Joe and Cape San Blas for many years now, and I remember a childhood of run down hotels and the fragrance of the paper mill. This is not the Cape San Blas of today, and Eight Knots provides the perfect location for the family wanting their own space to visit and relax without being pressed by encroaching neighbors. There is none of that at Eight Knots. The owners have nicely updated the property, but it has retained its coziness and charm. The upstairs loft bedroom was a great way for our teenage girls to have their own space. The house is also on stilts, so you feel quite safe from the occasional raccoon, and you can even park your car under cover. If you happen to be on the Cape during scalloping season, the dock and access at Eight Knots are perfect as is its proximity to the sea grass beds. In fact, you will feel bad for those folks who have to launch their boats every day at the State Park. This is really an experience that I have always associated with “Old Florida”; and one that every family needs to experience before the Cape becomes more developed and touristy. Loads of options from swimming the bay to accessing the beach across the road. Good fishing opportunities if you want that, and certainly an easy drive to Apalachicola. Eight knots provides every opportunity to escape. The views from the back porch of St. Joe Bay and Pig Island are about as good as they get in NW Florida. I am so happy that the owners started renting Eight Knots again. We are certainly coming back!
