About

GULF FRONT HOME ON CAPE SAN BLAS

SUN-SUN DURING IN THE SUMMER

Cape Refreshment is an ideal escape, where you can shake off the snow, recharge your batteries and melt into the soft glow of the the most spectacular sunsets anywhere.

This home is located in one of the quietest portions of the cape, and just three homes share your quiet paved road that extends from the beach to the bay. Located about mid-way between St. Joseph State Park, our central location is blessed with the clear waters of the gulf, and close proximity to the stores. The bay-side dock offers easy access for kayaker’s, boaters, waders, fishermen and the world famous scalloping of St. Joseph Bay.

Cape Refreshment is beach-front with an unobstructed view. Every room in the home looks over the turquoise waters and lapping waves of the Gulf of Mexico. Even the large shower and Jacuzzi tub in the master bath can be opened to the view of the gulf if you desire. Every bedroom opens through large screened sliding glass doors to a deck or balcony, allowing all guest the opportunity of being lulled to peaceful sleep by the gentle sound of rolling waves. The deck at Cape Refreshment extends across the entire western face of the home. As you step out of the large glass doors, the first half of the deck is fully enclosed by roof and screen, well lit and has a large ceiling fan.

First time we have stayed at Cape Refreshment, but we have stayed several times at Coastal Joe's properties and have yet to be disappointed. Cape Refreshment was amazing. When you are out on the deck you feel like you are right on the beach which you might as well be as close as you are. The deck is amazing, half covered and screened and the other half right out in the sun. The layout of the house was very nice. Each bedroom had a beautiful view of the ocean and the upstairs bedrooms have their own private balconies. The house was well stocked and very clean. This is the fourth Thanksgiving week in a row we have stayed on the Cape and each just gets better. We had a great day fishing w/ Man's Fat Boy Charters and every day we woke up to the most amazing views imaginable. At night you could not ask for a better sunset. As stated before we have stayed at Coastal Joe's properties several times, we had a great experience w/ them the first time we stayed in one of their properties and decided to just stay w/ Coastal Joe's exclusively. The "great" experience that swayed us was actually an issue we had with the property. The AC went out......I called the office immediately and they apologized for the inconvenience and said they would get someone out to take a look at it as soon as possible. Well i have heard that "as soon as possible" statement before so i wasn't expecting anyone until the next day at the earliest. To our surprise a truck pulled up in the driveway in less than 20 minutes. The gentleman was very courteous and went right to work. He had the AC working in maybe 30 minutes. He cleaned up, apologized again and left. The rest of my family didn't even know we had an issue because they had gone to the beach early. This is the only issue we ever had w/ a Coastal Joe property and their response is what made us loyal customers. Each time we stay w/ them they are always in contact to see if we need anything. I can't say enough about the staff.

Perfect week at the beach

I agree with other reviews. When you arrive, you are shocked by the neglect. I hope the new owners got a good deal because it needs alot of work. This home is on prime beachfront real estate with exceptional beach access and views. The home should not have been rented until the new owner made some obvious improvements. The first day, we had to wrap our brains around the property condition. The inside of the microwave is very rusty and the stove cooktop does not heat evenly. The screened porch needs to be painted and screens re-attached. No comfortable seating on the screened porch. Boards on the deck are questionable. The porch is the full length of the house, facing West. The sunsets are SPECTACULAR. A few days into the vacation, we were at peace with the home's condition thanks to the view. I hope the owners block the rental calendar soon and renovate. This home will be extraordinary after renovations. We are repeat renters with Coastal Joe and highly recommend them. Now, on to schedule the next trip with Coastal Joe.

We had thought about canceling as Ian was forecast for the Panhandle of Fla. so thankful we didn’t. Incredible weather.
This is our first stay at Cape Refreshment and Dealing with Coastal Joe.
Can’t say I wasn’t disappointed when we first arrived. The outside was dirty and tired. Inside was clean and newer couch and master master bedroom mattress. The screen porch was clean but, needs painted and replaced. But, the house was well stocked and kitchen provided all cooking and utensils needed for a great trip. We had no problems with the mechanics of house. We did find out the house was sold a couple months ago and the new owners r going to do a total remodel inside and out. This is an excellent location on beach. Not crowded as few neighbors. We would stay again even before the remodel for the price. Can’t wait till it is remodel.

Spectacular Beach Views, however ...

If we had seen pics of JUST the front steps to this rental, it would have DEFINITELY swayed us to stay elsewhere. We did see the picture of the overgrown dead bushes/trees but trusted those would have been removed or at least cut back. The grass was deeper than knee-deep. Just personally believe more detailed pics should be shown so others won't be as SHOCKED and DISAPPOINTED as we were, considering the amount of $,$$$ we spent. Wish we could add pictures. Once inside, the beach views were GREAT. As with all gulf coast beaches at this time, do your research about stable flies and items that may help deter them.

This was our 2nd stay at Cape Refreshment. We love the oceanfront location and the setup of the house. The view from the porches are incredible. The friendly staff at Coastal Joe were always courteous and helpful and made our stay a pleasure. We would definitely rent this place again!

This is our 8th stay at Cape Refreshment. It never disappoints. The views are incredible, love the porches, being so close to the ocean is heaven and this stretch of beach is NOT crowded. We stayed 3 weeks this year and everything was perfect! Thank you for everything!

Cape Refreshment is exceptional in every way. It is the perfect rental, IMO. First and foremost, it was spotlessly clean, like 5 star hotel clean! The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to prepare gourmet dinners if you wish. The layout is wonderful with the king master on the main floor and the bed was very comfortable. It is beautifully decorated and has incredible ocean views from every room in the house. The pictures do not do it justice. We practically lived on the screened in porch. Cape Refreshment is so close to the water we didn’t feel the need to set up camp on the beach every day. Also liked the location. Close to a convenience store and not far from the state park. We will definitely stay here again!
