We had a great time and the property is clean and in average shape for an older beach home. Location is wonderful and the property management company was friendly, professional and very helpful.

Beautiful home, steps from the beach. Fully furnished, kitchen had at least 2 sets of everything. We made full use of all of the beach chairs, cooler and umbrella provided. Outdoor shower was so nice, we were able to rinse off all sand before entering the house. Location was the best thing!!! Steps from the beach, a short walk to the best fresh seafood, ice cream and market. They had everything that we needed. Very private and quiet.

Great agent, Average place

We go to CSB each year, love the place. Gone Shellin is average, a bit worn down, lights for bedtime reading not good. Coastal Joe is a very good rental agency, by far the best on the Cape.

Gone Shellin' was a perfect place to stay. Great access to the beach and they even provide the chairs, umbrella's, toys, etc. The owner's happened to be staying in the adjoining duplex and what nice, helpful people! Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary and couldn't have picked a better spot.

This has been our 5th time to Cape San Blas and it never grows weary. Gone Shellin is perfect for us. We play games on the deck and having a washer/dryer is always a plus:) We wish it would be a bit cleaner but that is something we can live with. I would recommend Gone Shellin to friends but be sure I did not recommend it a time we were not needing it:)

We checked in Monday morning, 11/7/16 and the WIFI wasn't working. Called the rental company and they came out quickly and fixed it. After that, however, the TV went out. We just couldn't bother with another service call and made due w/o TV.

EARLY Wednesday morning an 18 wheeler showed up next to our deck and unloaded stacks of wood. Workmen were talking loudly on their phone and needless to say, we woke up. Most of the following two days we were treated to the sounds of drilling, sawing, and hammering, while an outdoor shower was constructed in the other unit of the duplex.

When I complained about the noise the owner offered me an additional night or 10% off for another visit next year. Well, the extra night didn't fit into our schedule (we are not retired) and 10% next year wasn't "substantial" as the owner claimed. We literally could not relax at this property for the majority of three days. We I requested a partial refund the owner first accused me of "sneaking" my dog onto the property (I had paid a deposit for my dog months prior) and then accused me of trying to "scam" a vacation from her.Wow!

In the end she refunded my $100 dog fee out of embarrassment for accusing me of sneaking my dog, but I'll never stay at this property again.

Manager's Response

We truly do apologize for the inconvenience that you experienced. Unfortunately, the construction was being done on the other side of the unit and they did not let us know that they had planned to install the outside shower. The other unit is owned and operated by another individual and was completely out of our control. The pet fee was not added until after the initial deposit was paid and the owner was not aware that the charge had already been paid through us. We believe the owner was more than reasonable in her offer, simply because it was out of her hands and had nothing to do with the service that she provided.

Great

Had to sweep the floor. The bed room up stairs didn't have a tv. We could see the ocean but it wasn't beach front.

Manager's Response

This home is advertised as 1st tier which means it sits one row back from the gulf front homes. However, it is still very close to the beach as most homes on the Cape are.

It was great, the house was comfy with that feel like home feeling. We did have a toddler so the port a crib was great, but the stairs made us nervous, I did have our baby gate that I used. But maybe also having one on the house outside on the deck would be awesome as well. The TV was probably the only real issue, the picture quality is poor, maybe a new TV is in order. Otherwise we just loved this place.

Manager's Response

Thank you for the feedback. We will definitely let the owner know about your suggestions regarding the baby gate and the TV.

Very Nice!

We really enjoyed the quiet atmosphere of Cape San Blas. The home is very comfortable with modern amenities. The beach is a short walk across the parking area and has beautiful white sand. One problem was the patio door would not lock, which I reported. I do believe we will be coming back, VERY NICE!

Great as last stay. Nothing changed except for the great k.

I mentioned a couple of these items when we checked out, but given this opportunity, I'll offer more. The dishwasher was awful -- it would not clean the dishes, and required multiple washes. The TV was one of the worst I've ever seen, with no apparent green or yellow showing up on the screen. The remote required a magician to figure out how to make it work. The Internet was weak and the signal often disappeared completely. A repairman showed up without warning one morning and said he had been sent by the owner to fix the refrigerator, which was leaking. Some warning would have been nice.

In summary, we're been visiting CSB for years and have stayed in multiple properties. This was not one of the strongest, yet the rates would have suggested it was. It needs some work to get to the caliber that we expect.

We just completed our 3rd stay at Coastal Joes and it is always a joy for us to stay there:) Next year we are brining along a knife sharpener...The view is wonderful even tho it is not directly on the water. I would definitely recommend Coastal Joes to a friend but not while we are there. Our winters belong in Cape San Blas while staying in Coastal Joes:)

Coastal Joe is very easy to work with. This house is a great size and we really liked the layout and location. It is a pet friendly rental and when we stepped in for the first time there was still dog hair from the previous stay. The floors were sticky and the windows and blinds needed some cleaning. Everything else was clean.

The house has a nice selection of utensils and cooking ware. The kitchen has been updated, but the range is not level, but it didn't interfere with the stay.

We would stay here again.

It was great as always, love the new upgrades and the beach was wonderful. Its great to seen the updates as we have been staying there for a few years. If i had any suggestions it would be to have a screen back porch like the neighbor and fix the upstairs bed, it is really rough on our backs with the way it sinks in the center, however it is our favorite place to stay our our dogs love it too!!!

I was not impressed. We had to clean the place when we arrived. The beds were horrible. I did love the set up with bedrooms being on separate floors. Location was not bad either but would prefer beach front. We did have the kitchen utensils but I had to go purchase dishwasher cleaner along with trash bags. I have never stayed at a place that did not provide trash bags. The TV's were ram by internet and every time we tried to use wifi, the TV's were go off and I was constantly resetting the modem.

Fabulous !

We love staying on the Cape; this was our 1st year staying in Gone Shellin. It exceeded our expectations, very clean well-kept rental that is just perfectly located between The Trading Post and the gas station. We love walking the beach and going to the few stores on the cape for donuts and ice cream. Gone Shellin is just steps from the beach and we really enjoyed spending hours with our kiddos playing in the sand, walking the beach and enjoying the waves. We will definitely be back to stay again next year!

Another wonderful week in the Cape!

We rented Gone Shellin because our friends (2 other couples) were staying at Gone Catchin. The home was very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable beds and well stocked with kitchen appliances & cookware. This is the first time (out of 4 rentals) we have used a rental agency. We've always rented directly from the owner. Owner rentals tend to do more in the way of i ncidentals; I.e. trash bags (we had 1 small 1), toilet paper (1 roll in each bathroom), dish liquid (large bottle with about 2 squirts in it) bath soap (1 small bar). They did have dish washing liquid and clothes soap. They also only left 4 small, thin towels for 4 adults staying 7 nights but that was immediately remedied when I called Coastal Joe's. The other side of the duplex was screened in so we stayed on that side. There were too many "no see um's" to stay outside on their deck. If owners want to increase rental activity it might be a good idea to have deck access to the other side. People desiring to rent for family get togethers would find this added feature beneficial.
This home does sit one row of houses off the beach but has a beautiful view of the water. However, the houses do hide the sunset. You'll need to walk down the boardwalk to view the sunset.

Gone Shellin is such a delight for my husband and me. We have already reserved it for next year! The owner is remodeling the kitchen with all new everything. The only suggestion is a good thorough cleaning is much needed......

Very comfortable but needs some elbow grease.

This is our 2nd year coming to Gone Shellin and on the whole we thoroughly enjoy it. However, it does need a very THOROUGH cleaning. The property management is very prompt in meeting our needs when something is broken.

Always a pleasure...

Beach was fabulous, long, beautiful and very scarcely populated. Seeing 20 people was a crowd. Gone shelling was a lovely beach house, my only comment has to do with not having a kettle but having approximately 12 skillets. Too many skillets and not enough cupboard space. A minor problem easily rectified.

The duplex was well kept and nicely furnished for a great week at the beach. Being older, it was nice to have a limited amount of stairs with only a two story. The view, although one row back, was still very nice and the beach access was great. Quick access to groceries, fishing gear and a sea food restaurant.

The house much prettier than pictures indicate and the grounds are very pretty and well kept. The kitchen is well equipped with nice cookware, plenty of dishes and flatware. It easily accomodates 4 with bedrooms on separate floors for privacy. We were pretty comfortable with 5 adults. Lots of seating outside and there is a constant cool breeze in the carport underneath. This is about as close as you can get to gulf front without the extra cost. About a half a minute stroll to the beach and a very short walk to the community dock on the bay for fishing. The owners are very pleasant to work with. Excellent value and location.

One of the things we appreciated is that we didn't have people passing by to get to the boardwalk! We thank Coastal Joe and the homeowners for the opportunity to rent this great place!

The house was in need of repairs. The inside was adequate, but in need of some extra cleaning, especially in the bathrooms. It was the only house , in the 6 years we have rented in Fla., that didn't supply even the basics needed to keep the house clean. No laundry soap, no DW soap, no dish cloths, no cleaners of any kind, only one garbage bag in the house, etc.The threshold between the LR & the Bathroom was falling off & we tripped on it a few times. The exterior of the house needs a lot of TLC. Some of the railings on the deck are falling off, the yard is full of thorny plants & not landscaped at all.Although it was in a perfect location, I wouldn't rent it again unless it had some up dates. Sorry

Manager's Response

Thank you for feedback! We will definitely take your suggestions into consideration. Did you not read your pre-arrival packet? We email this to you as soon as the final payment is paid so that there would be no surprises. This informs you of everything that we do provide including all of the beds being made up for you which I know is a treat after traveling for so long. I wish that you would have contacted us during your stay so that we could have addressed the issues that you have mentioned here. Unfortunately it is very difficult to take care of these things after the fact, but we will definitely look into the maintenance items that you mentioned. Our goal is to have your stay be enjoyable! Most of the yards around here are not landscaped as this vegetation does not survive very well in the sand and beach conditions. Thank you again for your feedback!!

The only negative of this house was that you couldn't see the beach from the deck, but the beach was only 100 steps away (literally across the driveway and down a walkway through the dunes) so that didn't matter much! The furniture and amenities were perfect. They were well taken care of, but also well used, so it didn't feel like we were in a place where we couldn't relax!

We enjoyed our stay at Gone Shellin'. Our Son and his family had the other side of the duplex for the week. We enjoyed the fresh seafood available in the area. The beach was an easy walk from the condo. It was fun to watch our 2 yr old granddaughter play in the sand and water. We really enjoyed sitting on the beach in the evenings too. We are already talking about making another trip to Cape San Blas.

Overall our experience was fantastic. The prperty was in a great location and access to the beach was very simple. The beach chairs and kids toys was fabulous as were the few fishing lures and baits left over from others. The amenities inside the house were good. Needed a pan to BBQ fish and shrimp. But we got by. Also needed a bottle opener for some refreshments on the beach. Not a big deal, but the yard was not that desierable, unkept with long grass (weeds). The house was generally clean. There was old chips sitting on top of the frig and the roll away bed in the couch had sand in the sheets. Also there were piles of sand under furniture throughout the house. I can understand it is hard to clean all properties thoroughly every week. We also did not recieve was cloths for the kitchen, I know I should of called the management company but we got by. Anyway, thanks for a great stay and would consider staying again at the same house or another from Coastal Joe Vacations. I hope y'all made it through Debby. I feel for everyone there especially those who have rentals for the week. Take care and be safe.

Manager's Response

Once again we enjoyed our 2 week stay. The beach is so wonderfully dog friendly and people friendly too! It's also NOT crowded. Sunsets are amazing! It seemed on this visit that the property, while very comfortable, felt a little neglected in terms of jammed cupboards, lack of normal cleaning supplies, faulty TV remote, DVD player not working and a torn bedspread/comforter. On prior visits all was pristine!

We had a great time and very much appreciated the fact that we were able to get into the house earlier than 4:00. The management staff was very friendly and helpful. In the past we have always stayed in beach front houses and while this house was very nice and not much further of a walk, we missed being able to sit on the deck and have an unobstructed view. Other than that, it was perfect for our family. Thanks so much, I'm sure we'll be back.

I love this place is so beautiful.

Also, it seams strange that my registraion info. would not be in the system since I was in one of your managed properties less than a year earlier.

All of our rental properties were ready for our check-in. Did you perhaps arrive early? All of your information was in our reservation system or else we couldn't have made a reservation for you. Perhaps you mean that your credit card information was no longer in our system for security purposes?

It was a very beautiful setting. A very good deal for the price. The condo could use some general updating but was overall extremely nice. It would be nice to have had a few more staples provided like dishwasher soap, garbage bags, an extra bath towel. No one really wants to have to immediately find a grocery store and fill a big shopping list when they are on vacation. The rental management company was extremely prompt in getting the stove fixed when it went out.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your feedback. We will definitely take these comments into consideration. Please remember to read the Pre-arrival Packet prior to your arrival advising you of all that we provide in the home and what to bring with you. We clearly state that we do not provide dishwasher soap or extra garbage bags. The house sleeps 6 so there were enough linens for 6 people which should have provided a few extra for you. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back on Cape San Blas!

Late check-in: We got the folder fine and the rental co. did a great job. Only suggestion I would have is to not use REEF street as reference point. We got in late and missed the turn at least 3 times. The letters on "REEF" are not reflective so do not show up in headlights. There's a big sign that references the homes on the street. I think it's something like "Silent Sands", (my memory is failing me.) It is a very big sign and would be a better reference than REEF street. NOTE: I just saw that my name is shown as being from WayCata, MN. It should be WayZata, MN.

Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Having lived in the panhandle of Florida all of my life has been amazing. We have spent many years vacationing in CSB. The beaches are not as pretty as the beaches east of the Cape, but there was no oil from the BP spill. The well was capped while we were in CSB. We like CSB because of the closeness to the "Scalloping Patch". We hope to be able to afford the ever increasing rates. When we stayed the first year in a rental, the cost was $350 for a 4 BR 3 Bath house. Now it is about $1300 for a 2 BR 2 bathroom duplex. We watched the rates soar by $100 per year for many years.

Cabin was very clean and well-equipped. Couch and loveseat were both pretty "sat out" and could be replaced. We thought this property was right on the beach, but it was one tier back. However, very close to beach entrance and we had a tiny view of the ocean from the deck. We went fishing one day in the Bay with Captain Pete White--just and awesome experience. Caught our limit of seat trout and then caught huge red fish. We love the Cape and have been there many, many times. It never disappoints.

We had a great time in Cape San Blas.
There were a couple of problems with this unit.
There was a problem with the hot water in the kitchen. We had to get hot water from the bathroom to do the dishes. We did not do a lot of cooking so this wasn't a big issue.
The water faucet outside would not turn off. There was a hose with a sprayer on the end that kept the water from running all the time.
The air conditioner leaked at times (usually late in the afternoon). We kept a trash can under the leak and poured it out as needed. There were only three adults staying in the unit and we did not keep the doors open and there was not much traffic in and out.
The unit is comfortable and furnished nicely. There is a lot of clutter of cute beachy things on the dressers, tables, stove, and counters. There are a lot of dishes also. We removed a Bamboo(?) rug from under the coffee (cocktail) table and placed it in the hot water closet. It was torn and my husband and I tripped over it several times. We were afraid we would eventually trip and fall so that is the reason we picked it up. We did not replace it when we left for the safety of the next guest (hope you don't mind). I did leave a note for the cleaning people and the person that comes in to check for missing items at to the location of the rug.
I visited the rental office to secure Gone Shellin' for next year. The agent was on the phone for a long time with another client so I was unable to do so and report these problems. When I went to check out she was busy again so I just left. I was ready to head home after an exciting week of scalloping.
Hope to see you again next year.

The beds were extremely uncomfortable! And the living room furniture is not comfortable. I know those things can be changed by the owner and I think the owner would have a really great place if they would invest in new mattresses and pillows and some lounge friendly furniture.

We loved the house! Everything we could possibly need was available for our use, although you might consider a new gas grill, as the one provided doesn't work very well. Other than that, the house is nicely decorated, well equipped, roomy enough for seven and close enough to the beach to be convenient. It was the best vacation we've had in over ten years and will be definitely be back! Thanks so much for the great time!

The location was ideal -- truly 100 steps from the beach! You can watch the water from the deck in the early morning and be on the beach in a few steps. The owners provide beach chairs and water toys and umbrellas and things of that nature, as well as a stereo and DVD player for rainy days and evenings. We love the location and the area and hope to move to the town in the next year or so. However, the furniture in the house was a bit uncomfortable. That was our only complaint. We would certainly recommend Coastal Joe's to anyone.

Happy at "Gone Shellin!"

My husband and I were extremely pleased with our experience at "Gone Shellin" and will be back next year. We have been visiting the Cape for seven years and this first time experience with this property and management was the best of all. The ownners had a very nice note on the side of the refrigerator saying how proud they were of their home and hoped any guest would "treat her as they would their own home." That pride was evident in the furnishings, decorations, colors, and conveniences available to us. We appreciated and respected their place and will be loyal and dependable guests for hopefully years to come!

Perfect Vacation!

This trip was our best ever and we will most certainly come back again. The unit was great and the beach was fantastic. we couldn't have ask for more. The only drawback was the mosquitoes so come prepared with repellant but other than that it was a dream vacation.

We travel to Cape San Blas yearly to fish in the wonderful bay. Gone Shellin' has the perfect spot to park our boat and truck. Even better, the beach is just out the door! We would definitely stay here again!
