About

GULF FRONT HOME ON CAPE SAN BLAS

“The Pickle” is your true vacation getaway, the perfect combination of comfort, convenience and natural beauty. Relax with family and friends and choose your
view: an uninterrupted vista of either the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico or beautiful St. Joseph Bay. To entice you further, the sugary white sand beach and turquoise Gulf water are just steps away. Treat yourself to spectacular views of a peaceful beach, free of crowds, with no high-rise hotels or condos in sight. This newly renovated home will have you begging to be in a “Pickle.”

Start the morning with coffee/tea on the Bayside deck, watching the sunrise. Enjoy surf fishing, dolphin watching, shelling, playing games, or relaxing with a book. Bring your hammock and hookup outside. End your day with breathtaking sunsets from one of two ocean-facing decks. Several Adirondack chairs/barstools along with a newly installed stainless steel cable railing provide tranquil and unobstructed views. All of the decks are gated to provide safe environments for the little ones (both two- and four-legged).

Ground Level: Twin/Double Bunk bedroom great for the kids, covered parking, grill, and beach access. Cool off and clean up from your day on the beach in the private outdoor shower.

2nd Level: Updated kitchen (granite countertops, backsplash tiles), newly installed wood flooring throughout; remodeled ocean-front deck with stainless steel cables provides unhindered views of the Gulf. Gulf-side indoor dining and living areas are open concept and offer plenty of seating choices. First floor Queen Bedroom has a private bayside deck and full bath, and there’s a bayside outdoor dining area.

3rd Level. Master Bedroom King Suite (private bath and balcony overlooking the ocean). A second Queen Bedroom has a full bath and private bay-viewing deck. The laundry room and office nook are also on this level.

When you return home, folks will ask you where you were last week. You can jokingly say, “I was in a Pickle.” Your secret is safe with us.

We found The Pickle the perfect beach vacation spot and are excitedly planning our return. Being beachfront on the white sand beach ....with every comfort and convenience at our fingertips was amazing. The owner had thought of every detail for a wonderful stay; TVs in every bedroom, books perfectly curated for beach reading, a wonderful array of DVDs for entertainment, puzzles for rainy day playing and a kitchen stocked with every pot, pan and utensil we needed to create our own beach delicacies. The Pickle is beautifully decorated with a wonderful open flow to experience the ocean view and breeze. The Pickle’s many decks allowed us to lounge outside our individual bedrooms and also together on the main levels, offering deck views of the bay and the ocean. We were delighted at every turn!

Manager's Response

Thank you! We're so happy that you all had a great time, and we look forward to seeing you year after year!

-Plenty of things we loved! Outdoor space, proximity to the beach, boardwalk, outdoor shower, enough room for our 3 sets of family, nice floors, plenty of kitchenware

Things to note that would take what we spent on this rental a step further in satisfaction:

-Grill was out of propane so we had to take it to shop and pay for an exchange
-Middle hinge of pantry door missing screws and caused door to not close
-Ants throughout kitchen and window facing ocean by dinning table
-Bathroom on main level had about a lb of hair pulled out of it where drain was clogged up.
-9 towels for a house with 9 capacity is a bit under service given most women use 2 towels...1 to wrap hair and 1 to dry off (or maybe that’s me). Just a big inconvenience having to shuffle towels around and do a lot of laundry on vacation.
-Big comforter sets & pillows stored in closets (master and downstairs) which then left closets out of room/space. Had to relocate some.
-Smoke alarm went off every time we used stove. Need some type of ventilation system
-Fire ants along outside perimeter of house by driveway/trash cans...multiple attacks of the feet occurred

We loved our week at the pickle . We had plenty of room for everyone to have their own space . The kitchen was stocked well ( you just need a spatula ;) the views were amazing from all rooms . The bay sunrise rooms could use some darker curtains for sleeping in :) air worked well, the location was great and only a few steps to the beach . We would love to return to the pickle one day :)

The Pickle was a good size for our family of six adults. The house is nicely furnished, comfortable, and a short walk to the Gulf shore. You’re given a list of items to bring. I would add bath towels, body soap and tall trash bags to your list. The bath towels, provided, were on the small side and a bit thin. Also, very small, hotel-sized hand soap was provided for hands and showers. One tall kitchen bag was provided, for garbage. We were there for a week! Know, though, that you’re not far from a convenience store, if you forgot anything.

Manager's Response

Thank you for sharing your experience! We're so glad that you loved The Pickle as much as we do. A Pre-Arrival Packet is emailed when the final balance is paid. This goes over our check in and check out procedures, exactly what's provided in the home, and also a list of items that you may want to bring with you. We're only a phone call away, so please don't hesitate to call us with any questions or concerns. That's what we're here for.

We just so happen to be here when the beach restoration was being performed. We understand that it must be done, it just wasn't our idea of a get-away vacation from our own construction company. It was extremely noisy (all night long) and the large pipe on the beach was unsightly.

With all of that being said, the rental company and home owners tried to do the best they could to accommodate us. We made the best of it and now know how beaches are restored. (It was very interesting).

There were some areas that needed a more thorough cleaning. (Dusting)

All-in-all, the house was SUPER! The new decking on the back and the lighting for the stairs was really great. The homeowner has done an excellent job with the updates!

Manager's Response

Your group was an absolute pleasure to have, and we appreciate your understanding and patience as the beach restoration process was in full swing! The area around the Pickle is now complete. Come back and see us anytime!

We always love Cape San Blas. So laid back, pet friendly, beautiful sunsets. Loved the Pickle house on the beach but needs to be advertised as 3 bedroom. Bunk room has no closet or space for clothes and hot. It’s on lower level. Other than that verypretty.Had all you need in kitchen. So close to beach. Had a great time.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your feedback. The Pickle has always been advertised as a 4 bedroom, and no other guest has ever questioned that. The bunk room has a separate dresser with 5 drawers, and 3 additional drawers that pull out from under the bunk bed. There is also a space to hang clothes behind the bedroom door.

Had a wonderful stay at the Pickle, especially enjoyed all the updates post-Michael. The new cable system on the deck really opens up the view from inside the house. Everything in this home is thoughtfully done for the renters. The property was very clean upon arrival. Mary and the staff at Coastal Joe could not have been more accommodating and helpful to questions and needs.

Manager's Response

We're very happy with the upgrades at The Pickle, and you really can't beat those views! The owners have worked extremely hard to make this home better than ever, and I believe they've accomplished that. Thank you for the kind words! We'll see you next year!

We have rented this house many years in the past and have always enjoyed and look forward to our time here. Coastal Joe and the owners of the home always make us feel welcome, and we appreciate that. We were sobered by the hurricane damage on the Cape, in Port St. Joe, and especially in Mexico Beach, all the way into Panama City. We were amazed to meet so many residents and workers pulling together, working so hard to repair the damage, to open their businesses and get back to normal. Any where you go in this country you find people, in the wake of disaster, refuse to be defeated. We are glad we came this year and looking forward very much to next year!

Manager's Response

We are so happy that you loved your stay at The Pickle, although Michael tried to put a damper on the area. We appreciate your loyalty, and can't wait to have you back with us next year!!

Mary and the folks at Coastal Joe where wonderful. We did have a few issues and they were able to take care of most of them. The hot water heater was broken and a plumber was sent to repair. Vacuum cleaner broken and they sent over a substitute. These were all minor issues that they took care of immediately. The outside grill was non functioning and the property should not have been listed with a gas grill. The most serious issue was the beach access. I have a bad knee and was not able to drop the four feet to the beach. This is not a fault but an act of nature. However, I was not happy that all the money I paid did not able me to walk on the beach. The Pickle is a delightful home and very clean. The layout is wonderful and so well decorated. The owner did a very good job and we loved every minute except of course for the beach access. The younger folks were able to enjoy the beach. The owner left many movies and books for us to enjoy I love the Pickle and love the folks at Coastal Joe. We intend to book for next year but do need to have beach access and Mary said she would help me. Wonderful time.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review. The owner has added a walkover, and the beach access is easier than ever! We hope to have you back soon, so you can see all of the updates that have been made!

Beautiful home, very spacious and location was awesome! The view was breathtaking, even during the hurricane. Coastal Joe was awesome, helping us to extend our stay. They were prompt in replacing the chirping smoke detector batteries for us. My only recommendation would be for the owners to think about building a boardwalk walkover to the beach. Highly recommend this property.

Manager's Response

You asked for it, and the owners made it happen! A new walkover has been added!

A very beautiful setting. We had dolphins just 20 feet from the shore almost every day. The house itself was very nice and comfortably held 6 adults & 3 children. Just a few feet over the dunes to the super soft white sand beach.
Port St. Joe is just a couple minutes down the road with all the amenities needed. Very private location, very few people and no crazy partying going on. Had a fire on the beach a few different nights as we watched the sunset right over the ocean.
This area really is special and hasn't been overrun by tourism. The state park is very nice and worth a day trip.
Food to check out would be the "doughnut" shack about a mile down the road and Joe Mama's Pizza in Port St. Joe.

Had a problem with tv/wifi. Called and within 30 minutes someone showed up. Had to call in someone else. Two other repairman came and stayed with us for almost 4 hours trying to fix the problem.

We had the best time at the Pickle. It was a perfect location and the house was in great shape. The bedrooms on the bottom floor was attached from inside the house which we were not sure about but worked out perfect for two teenage boys. Everything you need and more is well stocked in the kitchen for cooking and grilling. We will definetly be back next year.

Beach house was charming. A few maintenance issues but they were addressed immediately. Sunrise and Sunsets were spectacular . A pod of dolphins visited as we swam in the ocean. A hermit crab collection grew as we spent days on the beach. Treats of ice cream cones at the Scallop Cove store topped of the evenings. Great vacation

Overall our stay at the Pickle was great. Right on the beach and perfect for our short Christmas break.Condition of property was clean however we did find that we were washing the silverware and plates etc before we used them as these appeared grubby and a little dirty.
We arrived on Christmas day and had no access to the TV - I did leave 2 messages during our 4 day stay which were not responded to, and when I mentioned this as we checked out, the response was I will get maintenance to take a look. That didnt really help us as we were leaving. So the Property overall was a thumbs up, Property management I would say not so great but did not impact our enjoyment of the holiday

My wife and I decided to spend Thanksgiving at the beach this year. We have always been near family so it was with a bit of regret that we headed south. We have rented many houses on Cape San Blas but this was a new one for us. The Pickle was perfect. It was like home at the beach and we could not have made a better choice. I had do complete some school assignments over the weekend and The Pickle has a perfect desk nook that looks out at the beach. That made staying in a little more tolerable. The Pickle is a property we will definitely rent again.

We loved the location and would stay here again if some things were upgraded. The house is nicely decorated but some items are showing wear such as the appliances, mattresses, etc. Some small maintenance items needed like upstairs bathtub faucet and broken pantry door

House was very comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed. The dryer did not work very well. Sometimes needed two full cycles to dry. That was our only issue. Great place?

We love the Cape, have vacationed there 6 years now. We really liked The Pickle and the location. One item I would like to see different is the slip cover on the couch is white, something more practical in color would be better so it wouldn't appear to be dirty. The appliances need a update.

Beautiful place in a great location. The house is beautifully renovated and mostly well kept. A few broken things will hopefully be fixed, and it would have been nice to have beach chairs. The Balconies overlooking the bay are not really useful, but the sunsets over the water keep you speechless. We are planning to come back. Plenty of space for a family of 5.

Excellent stay at "The Pickle" on Cape San Blas Florida. Great uncrowded beach. Christmas / New Year weather was better than expected...we had some nice sunny warm days. Would recommend this location and rental unit.

Never been so happy to find myself in a "pickle".

Our family loves the Pickle! We were a group of 5 adults with 3 small children and 2 small dogs. The house was very comfortable, neat , clean and well decorated. The staff at Coastal Joe was very nice and helpful. We absolutely loved our summer vacation on Cape San Blas at the Pickle. We can't wait to go back!

We enjoyed our stay in relaxing Cape San Blas. The Pickle was exactly as advertized and laid out perfectly for our family's needs with plenty of space for three couples with two small children and one adult child. The beach was beautiful and never crowded - even on the July 4th holiday weekend! Good location on the beach and walking distance (.2 mile) to the nearest covenience store. Enjoyed wonderful views of the sunrise over the Bay from new decks on front of the house, as well as sunset views from the back deck overlooking the Gulf and beach. Very few homes on the Cape offer this amenity. If you are looking for a peacefull, quite place, the forgotten coast is perfect. If you like crowds, nightlife, etc, not so much. Plan accordingly, the nearest large grocery store is in Port St. Joe (about a 20 min. drive).

The Pickle was in a perfect location and the beach was gorgeous. We really appreciated the ground floor bedroom,as our dog could not climb stairs.
However, the "dog flies" on the beach were horrible. Actually kept us off the beach at times. I've lived in FL 43 years and have never experienced this before - worse than no-see-ums. Wish someone had mentioned this.

Manager's Response

We are sorry you experienced the pesky dog flies. There is no way to predict when the dog flies come for their season. This is actually not a time of year that we are accustomed to seeing them. The good news is, they do not stay long. The bad news is, it's their home too and no escaping them for their brief visits to the Cape.

99% perfect. The toaster was broke. Other renters will like to know Cape San Blas sherif will give you a $55 ticket if your pup is on the beach without a leash. NO WARNING ! Mine went while we were still unloading the car. Yep, you guessed it. Other than that ONE person the people on the Cape, vacationers, employees and residents are the friendliest in all of Florida.

Loved: being right on the beach, near enough to BP for kids to walk up for a drink or snack, beach was wide and clean, kitchen well stocked, house comfy and decorated very nicely.
Needs attention: (told Coastal Joe already) oven has issues after a certain temperature, grill ignitor not working, back sliding door to deck is really hard to open.

Great stay at the Pickle!

Our family enjoyed our week at "the Pickle" so much. The location is better than the pictures revealed. We loved our private beachfront location. The home is beautifully decorated, fully stocked and very clean. In fact, it was the cleanest beach home that we have ever stayed in! There are plenty of movies, books and games...such a thoughtful touch. We can't wait to return!

We stayed at the Pickle with our 3 adult children and their two spouses - it was a wonderful first Family Vacation. Great location, not so many other homes that the beach was crowded, and just a stroll to Scallop Cove for restocking food and renting bikes. The home was decorated in a very fun, comfortable style. We had some connection issues with the TV during March Madness, and someone from Coastal Joe came right over and fixed us up.

We absolutely loved it! We found the house to be perfectly appointed and extremely clean, which coming from me is not an easy compliment because I am very picky about cleanliness. We found the house to be welcoming and comfortable while beautifully decorated. If I ever own my own beach house I would want it to look just like The Pickle.
Have I mentioned THE VIEWS?!?! We watched the sun rise over the Bay and watched the sunset over the Gulf. All of the bedrooms have their very own balconies so everyone can enjoy their own privacy and view. We watched the Dolphins play in the water every day and took long walks on the beach with our dog who had just as much fun as we did, if not more.
It is a must stay!
P.S. The rental company was a pleasure to work with and very accommodating.

We enjoyed the Pickle - a great house although a little small for our family, which was all adults. The dining room and living room were tight... not much room to spread out. We always like to do puzzles and had to move the puzzle from the DR table to bedroom whenever we sat down to eat.

The decor is very cute and casual... some kitchen items need some repair/replacement. Coastal Joe's staff was very friendly and professional.

All in all.. a nice stay. We'll use Coastal Joe's again when we stay at Cape San Blas.

Great location and great house for a couple with kids or just dogs. Only the main bedroom faces the beach if that matters. But the bay side is very pretty too. Very cozy and beachy.

Love the funky decor, so much better than the typical beachy look. The attention to detail was amazing, from the best stocked kitchen we've ever found to the great selection of books and movies. We will definitely be going back to The Pickle.

After an unexpected change in schedules, the staff at Coastal Joe's was very helpful in helping us find a suitable vacation rental for the week we needed. We enjoyed The Pickle a great deal. The house was nicely furnished and had great porches. Some updates had been made. The location was perfect and the views were amazing. What a joy watching the sunrise over the bay and the sunset over the gulf! We practically stepped off the back deck onto the beach. While we were there we were able to have a great bonfire on the beach. Without the lights found in more commercialized areas, the night sky was brilliant. Two turtles laid nests almost in front of the house during the week we were there. The week was definitely a "memory maker."

My family of seven adults and two children had a wonderful week at Cape San Blas staying at The Pickle. The house looked exactly like the pictures you see on the website. It should be noted how the bedrooms are layed out though. The bunk bed for children is on the ground floor and is basically the only room down there except for storage. The main level has one queen bedroom and one bath. The upper level contains the king master with bath and another queen bedroom with bath. The house was decorated perfectly - the owner has excellent taste! The house is right on the beach and the views are amazing. As a side note, we ate at Dockside Marina in Port St. Joe, Triple Tails on Cape San Blas and The Grill at Appalachicola. All were wonderful seafood meals! This was our second year at the Cape and we can't wait to return. The shelling is amazing!
