GULF FRONT HOME ON CAPE SAN BLAS

Footprints in the Sand is a beautiful three story home that sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico in Cape San Blas. If you are looking for a perfect getaway, look no further. Each floor is thoughtfully laid out to accommodate one or more families, and provides a special spot for adults, and kids to have their own space!

>p>Upon your arrival, you will enter the ground floor level which is a great area for kids to hang out. This is where you will find the second family room which includes a queen size sleeper couch, chairs, a full size fridge for extra drinks, and a SMART TV.

Also on this level is a King Bedroom (The Flamingo) and full bathroom.

The main level is a wonderful gathering spot for all. The hardwood floors lead you into a large family room, which includes custom interiors, fine furnishings, a large flat screen TV, and lots of windows to showcase the gorgeous ocean view. The family room flows nicely into the gourmet kitchen, where the finest chefs will enjoy a fully stocked kitchen, high end appliances and granite counter tops. There is also a stand alone ice maker in the kitchen. . Enjoy the furnished main deck on this level, where you will be transported by the gentle ocean breeze and the sound of the ocean waves.

Also on the main level is a laundry room, with a full size washer and dryer, ironing board and iron. This level also has a Queen bedroom (Sail Away) and full size bathroom.

The top level has a King Bedroom (Mermaid Cove) with en suite bath and sliding glass doors to the private master deck with breathtaking views of the beach.

There is also a full bathroom in the hall on the top level.

Each of the bedrooms has a Smart TV.

A short private walkway leads you to the gleaming white sand beach where you can enjoy the many beach provisions provided to guests- beach chairs, sand toys, beach wagon and tandem kayak. After a fun filled day on the beach, relax and unwind in the outdoor shower (hot and cold water) and the private pool. The ground level outside area also has a huge porch swing.

Enjoy free Wi-Fi Internet access and long distance, covered parking for 1 car, and open air parking for another 4+ cars.

Overall stay was good. Disappointed with amount of hot water. We never had a decent hot shower during the stay. Home owner should supply more than 1 roll of paper towels and toilet paper for guest. Not saying they should provide all but more than what was provided. Also if expected to was towels and dishes prior to departure they should give more washing material for both.

Great getaway in January with the quiet Cape. The house is right on the beach, and the pool was heated for the kids. It would have been a little more convenient if the house had a key pad instead of keys. Plenty of room for everyone.

We enjoyed spending another great family vacation on the cape. We had the pleasure of staying at Footprints on the Sand for this trip. Everyone was very pleased with the home. It exceeded our expectations. We did have a few issues that although would not be what we call deal breakers, they were slightly frustrating at times. Bathroom doors do not lock properly in some of the bathrooms. We had to make a rule that you do not enter a bathroom if the door is closed. The lighting in the house was challenging, this become a constant joke with everyone because there are so many switches it is hard to remember or figure out which ones turns on which lights in which room. :). The fireplace was out of service. This was really disappointing because it was one of the things we were hoping to enjoy while being there. The main thing that was the most challenging was the doors. Specifically the ones on main level going out to Beach. It’s very difficult to get them to unlock and lock due to the locking system on the door and it was very frustrating when although they were locked a simple push would open both sets of doors. To us this seemed to make the home feel a little unsafe. We would have easily rated this home 5 stars if it weren’t for these issues.

Manager's Response

Hi Kim -
Thanks for staying in our home. Thanks for the comments on the light switches, we will label them to make it easier for future guests. We will also check the locks on the bathroom doors. Although we understand your disappointment, the fireplace was not advertised as being functioning. The doors going out to the beach have a 5 point locking system which can definitely be challenging but Coastal Joe understands how to lock them and would gladly give any guest a tutorial! Thanks again for staying in our home.

We had an amazing week in Cape San Blas and Footprints in the Sand was the perfect house for our extended family. There was plenty of room and we loved that each family had their own level and bathroom for a little privacy. The main level bedroom was perfect for my parents to have fewer steps to navigate and the basement living space gave my teenaged niece her own 'room' away from the little kids. The house was stocked with anything we needed to cook or enjoy the beach and the views cannot be beat! The master porch swing was my favorite place to nap! We would definitely stay here again!

The only suggestions I would give is an area rug in the larger living spaces may help with the noise level in the house (lots of people + hardwood floors - it got a little loud!). Instructions on how to get the cable TVs working would have been helpful and just an FYI that the wifi did not really work (it was very slow). It wasn't a big deal for us since we wanted to be electronic free for the week, but I know some people may be renting houses to work remotely right now and I don't think that would be possible. Overall, I would highly recommend this house and Coastal Joe rental company!

So glad you enjoyed our home and thank you for the suggestions!

The house was beautiful. But had a few issues; in particular., the lights in the master just came on in the middle of the night.....not sure why. Other than that. The house had everything you could ask for.

Manager's Response

Thank you Melissa for staying in our home. Weird about the master bedroom lights! If there are other issues that were not addressed during your stay, can you please let Coastal Joe know so we can address. Thanks!

This was definitely the highlight of 2020!! Footprints in the Sand was a beautiful home, the beach was amazing, and our entire group enjoyed the time spent with each other and the beauty of the Cape. We love how quiet the cape beaches are. You can always find your own beach space with out a ton of people around you.

The house was ideal and very nice. The main great room and Kitchen was great place to hang out out with wonderful view of the beach (and sunsets!). All the bedrooms were very well decorated in beach vibe. The master bedroom was particularly nice with its own porch and wonderful views. The house was incredibly well stocked with kitchen gear as well as beach gear. It was a perfect stay with the beach just footsteps away. And a pool to cool down in the afternoon with good shade.

Great House, Great Week

We booked the house from early June 2020. Two families with 4 kids and dogs. It was an ideal week. The house has a wonderful main living area/kitchen that looks out to the beautiful beachfront. Same with the deck off this living area and the deck for the master bedroom. Hard to miss a gorgeous sunset (we saw a number). All rooms were nice but the master bedroom was particularly nice. The house is also incredibly well-stocked in the kitchen and with beach amenities. The pool was perfect in the afternoon as it became the latter spot of day with shade and great area for kids to take a break from the first half of the day that was spent on the beach. The beach area in front of the house wasn't at all crowded (reality is most of the cape beaches are not so crowded but our area was particularly not crowded). Quality of beds, sheets, bathroom towels, etc. was great as well. Owner was highly responsive to our questions. The place was very clean when we arrived - as they are taking extra precautions with cleanliness and sanitizing due to COVID. Highly recommend. Being on the right on the beach is hard to compete with.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week! This house is perfect. Nothing has been overlooked - The kitchen has everything you could think of. The house has just been remodeled, and we were honored to be the first guest to experience it. It has lots of room and is well set up for groups to have their own space with 3 "suites". The swings on the porches feel like the water is under your feet it is so close to the beach. Cleanliness is very important to us, and it was spotless. The owner and the management company were extremely nice to work with and checked in with us during our stay to see if we needed anything. Needless to say, we would highly recommend "Footprints in the Sand" and will definitely return!

This was our second year. Everything was in good shape in spite of the hurricane the year before. We had 11 people in the house and was ample space. Gas grill was not usable but we had taken our own tail gating grill. Cable for TV was not working but it was repaired within a day. Overall, good experience and we will go back.

Footprints in the Sand is directly on the beach in front of the Seagrass Circle neighborhood. We love this middle section of Cape San Blas. This home was great for our 2 families with children; 2 teen boys slept in the ground level, each couple got a "master" and the 3 middle school girls shared the upstairs bunk room. The views were amazing. The deck is very large- we enjoyed coffee in the AM and sunset cocktails at night there. The house is roomy, open and comfortable. Plenty of room outside for cars, kayaks, paddle boards, chairs, toys and bikes in the carport area. Close to Trading Post where the kids rode bikes to get ice cream. We were very happy with this rental and we also like working with Coastal Joe Management-they are local, professional and good people.

We had a wonderful time staying at Footprints in the Sand. Everything was clean upon arrival and the amenities were sufficient. Customer service is always helpful when needed. We love to stay on the beach or fish in the bay and this was perfect for both. Just a couple of minor issues with the condition, but those are easy fixes. We will definitely return next year and will recommend this property to friends and family.

The house is beautifully situated and overall very comfortable and attractive. We had a great time with family and friends. The location is very close to the trading post grocery store and seafood market, ice cream stand, etc. The house had plenty of boogie boards, toys and a few chairs that we used. The beach is absolutely gorgeous.

The maintenance and amenities could use some attention. The large burner on the stove did not work which made meals that required boiling large pots of water (shrimp, pasta) take forever on a smaller burner. There were not enough forks for our party of 12, even though the house sleeps 16, and no plastic cups--we bought some and left them there. There was no drying rack for dishes and no dishtowels. The door to the deck and the carport are a challenge to close and keep closed--the handles need tightening or replacing. The housekeeping when we arrived was a little slack. There was a travel mug of coffee left by the first floor TV when we arrived, a gummy bear on the floor of the twin bunk room, and several brown stains on the spread in the master bedroom. There were several tolietry items left behind in the master bathroom drawers--a used make up sponge and emery board.The smoke alarm by the door to the front deck was missing and wires dangled. These were all small annoyances, but they added up to a mediocre impression of the property maintenance.

Our visit at Footprints in the Sand was for all of February-great weather-off season very low traffic. The sand is white; water is crystal clear. The floor plan is set up nicely for a large group; open kitchen w/counter seating, that is open to a dining area with an round table. Every bedroom has it's own bath.the views are gorgeous! The dishes, pots/pans, utensils, towels, bedding, furniture, etc.. were really nice, much higher quality than other rentals we've experienced over the past 10 years. If this house was on St. George, I'd imagine the rent would be $6Kish/week and we think Cape San Blas is nicer and more private, if you compare the rates, it's less than half. The only quirks to Cape San Blas, CSB, cell-service was sporadic. There IS a gas station and two great little markets within 7-10min away-good!; the closest full service grocery store is about 25 min from this house in Port St. Joe. There are awesome restaurants in both Apalachicola (40min away)and Port St. Joe. CSB is a bit limited on dining options and is a wide-open opportunity for someone wanting to open a restaurant. All restaurants within 15-20 min have great food/service. If you want a seafood, go to 13 Mile in Apalach,and have a beer at Oyster City Brewing Company before you come back to CSB or you pick up fresh catch at Mark's or Triple Tail, and make it to your liking and eat on your deck, there's nothing better! We had such a great experience, we are going to book the house again for next year. If I were going to buy FL, this is where I'd buy and build. If you want low-key and beautiful, you've found!

The staff at Coastal Joes were great to work with. They were very helpful though out the rental process and with any request we had.

We had a great Christmas getaway with family. Property location was excellent and the house was good. There is some issues with the locks for the house and it needs to be fixed, we had trouble getting keys to work. Some doors could not be unlocked from the outside. We also had a few areas that needed to be cleaned better, nothing major but there were bugs dead in several areas including the tubs. The location made up for any issues and we had a great stay.

Manager's Response

We are very glad that you enjoyed this great home! The owners are very attentive to their home and love to hear that people are able to enjoy their spot of paradise. I apologize for the bugs! That's not usual for this time of year but it has been a very warm month. I will make sure to alert our cleaners to pay special attention to the areas you mentioned. We appreciate the feedback and hope to see your family again in the future.

Prior to our stay, we were contacted by Coastal Joe Vacation Rental Owner, Scott, to inform us that the house we rented had been damaged in a storm. Scott was AMAZING in how he handled this difficult situation! Coastal Joe did everything right. We were traveling with friends who also had problems with their house booked through Sunset Reflections Rental Company and Coastal Joe took care of them too because Sunset Reflections was extremely unaccommodating. Our goal in future bookings will be to rent houses only through Coastal Joe. Our only minor complaint was that one of the televisions did have a cable box so we could not pick up the cable stations and could only watch DVDs.

When we checked into the house named Footprints In the Sand it was instant relaxation for our group. The house was comfortable and accomodated our 12 very well. We rested well and played hard with such enjoyment. We did have some difficulty arranging the families together but this was minor. We all fell in love with The Cape and plan to visit in coming years. The staff were friendly and did what they could to fix the fer oroblems we ran into. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

We love Cape San Blas. The house we had been renting for the past couple of years was taken off the market when we originally booked so we looked for something new. Footprints is a beautiful place. The big kids took over the 1st level and the little ones were on the top level. I think the only thing I would change is to put a King sized bed in the 2nd floor bedroom and possibly open one of the owners closets as a pantry (storage space for food is limited). The hose at the base of the stairs just outside the main deck is a great touch as is the bar height table and chairs on that same deck. The people at
Coastal Joe's are very attentive and really take time to listen and make sure that our vacation was even better than expected.
We love Cape San Blas but we still want this to stay beautifully unspoiled so Shhhhhhh.

I booked this vacation with Suzy Kelly from Coastal Joe, and as always, she made it a very pleasant experience. She always has everything ready so we can come onto the cape, get the keys, and start our vacation. It was again the best vacation.

We had a wonderful time at this home. A few minor issues needed attention but they were done with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of care and consideration. The access to the beach is a little overgrown by dune greenery but provides easy access the the wonderful beach. The hand cart was useful transporting things to and from the beach. Property managers and staff were all very pleasant and accessible attending to any issues that arose. Fires on the beach most enjoyable and dolphins were visible nearly every day. We even had a friendly pelican visit us from time to time.

Our extended family of 14 people recently stayed at 'Footprints in the Sand'. What a beautiful, quiet beach location. The house was overall very nice and decorated well. A few small things such as outdoor locks rusted from the salt air, making doors difficult to lock were noted. Also, the living area is quite small, without enough seating to accommodate 14 guests although the sleeping arrangements did accommodate everyone. The kitchen could use a food storage pantry as there was nowhere to store the food purchased for such a large party. The wine cooler looks nice but does not cool sodas to an adequately cool temperature so it was essentially wasted space. A second refrigerator or ice maker would be more helpful as we had to purchase ice multiple times during our stay. The refrigerator ice maker was quite slow and couldn't keep up with the needs of 14 people. The beds were comfortable, the hardwood floors were in good condition, kitchen cabinets and countertops all very nice. There was a nice assortment of beach chairs, toys, and floats for guest use. I would suggest they extend the boardwalk to include steps down to the beach as provided by the houses on either side. Two grandmothers were included in our family and they had difficulty walking in the soft sand at the steep area to reach the boardwalk.

It's always a joy to return to the Cape, and we so appreciate owners who maintain and rent their gorgeous homes to the general public. Footprints was another great experience for our family vacation. There are so many positive things about this home. And there were a few items that did need to be addressed. I told someone at checkout about the leaking kitchen faucet. The slow leak at the base of the center nozzle caused a wet countertop and ran off at the back of the counter near the WIFI and phone hook-ups. When I realized what was happening, I placed a paper towel and two sponges around the site to soak it up. I attempted to call the office twice and when the line was busy I did not attempt to call back. What I forget to tell you all at checkout regarded a clogged sink in the master bath. The shorter of the two vanities, the sink on the same wall as the tub, did not drain well. It was not a major problem, and my husband did not want repair people in the home during our stay, so we worked around it.
I also told the lady at checkout about the sandy floor. Yes, we were at the beach, but there was no vacuum- just a hose, but no motor, nor was there a broom.
We LOVED the captains chairs on the porches, that made the water view exceptional. The sunsets were spectacular!
There was no way to lock up the home and we understand from neighbors this is an ongoing concern.
We were pleased and most appreciative, and look forward to returning to the Cape next year.

Great as always

We rented two houses near each other and both Footprints in the Sand and King's Landing were fabulous! We had everything we could need or want. Footprints was dog friendly and child friendly. We had a wonderful family reunion/spring break and EVERYONE wants to do it again!
Absolutely best vacation ever!

We always rent through Coastal Joe, they are the best!!! We love planning our trip with Suzy at Coastal Joe, she is the best. She takes good care of us every year. The house was beautiful, I enjoyed the kitchen, especially liked the wine fridge. The master bedroom was large as was the bath. Enjoyed the master balcony every evening watching the sunset.

We had a great week. House interior was beautiful. The few items we needed help with were addressed very quickly by rental company. Cell service on cape is always a pain but free long distance helped immensely. I will give up cell for beautiful crowd and high rise free, pet friendly beach with gorgeous sunsets.

We had a great time, wonderful area. We stayed for two weeks during the Christmas and New Years holiday's, and would do it again in a heart beat. We had Christmas dinner on the back porch overlooking the ocean in shorts and flip flops. Loved it, while all of our family and friends froze up North. This was our first time to Cape San Blas, and it is truly a special place. The fact that it is so unplugged was no problem for us. I worked off and on throughout the vacation from the house. No cell phone service was available, but house has unlimited long distance so I could be reached, and could call out. Sitting deckside with my laptop open on the wireless working was a dream. Kitchen fully stocked so we felt like we were at home cooking every night. The Trading Post general store down the street surprisingly has everything needed. Even the ingredients for a last minute pumpkin pie was no problem for them. They are fully stocked.

We had a wonderful time, and already planning our next trip!

Manager's Response

This is a gulf front home that is literally steps from the beach so the 3 for location is a bit confusing?? This home has free unlimited long distance provided for our guests so that you do not have to rely on cellphone coverage. This information was in the Pre-arrival packet as well as the Guest Arrival Packet given at check-in.
