    a guest from Chesapeake, VA recommends this vacation rental

    It was very hard to leave and the week flew by. Much of that was the quality of this home. Everything was beautiful and very clean. Amazing amenities and location. I would recommend this rental to anybody. Nice, safe neighborhood with great access to both the bay and gulf. The paddle boards and kayaks were a real bonus and the dock was wonderful. We spent hours in the bay with the kids just checking out the aquatic life all around us. The pictures do not do the top kitchen/living space justice. It is a beautiful open space that was very comfortable. The layout is great for families and we loved the closed in garage/lower level. Just amazing. Hoping to be able to come back next year!!!

    Don P from Biloxi, MS recommends this vacation rental

    Really enjoyed our stay. The house is very nice and is in a nice safe community. Great sun rises a and sunsets can be seen from the porches. The amenities were plentiful. The water with the sand bar behind this house is beautiful. It is very shallow, like all bay houses in this area, you have to be mindful of the tide when planning boat trips. Everything in the house and in the yard worked great and was well kept. Had a little trouble from the neighbor to the south. He was gripping that my boy drifted into his view behind his house while on anchor. He was very picky about the exact location of his property line extending out to the water.
    Great vacation get away in a great house I will rent it again next year.

    The sandbar was a great place for our family. We especially loved the large kitchen that was open to the living room and dining room and the decks! The water was perfect and clear for the kids to wade in and the guys to kayak and fish. We would love to come back next year.

    Stephanie L from Hickory, NC recommends this vacation rental

    We decided to forego our traditional Christmas and take a vacation to Cape San Blas with our boys and our oldest's girlfriend. We had a great time! We loved being able to kayak, paddle board and fish right off the dock in the back yard. The house was beautiful. Due to the tile floors and little wall decor or area rugs it was very loud. Other than that it was absolutely perfect!

    Patti G from Acworth, GA recommends this vacation rental

    Perfect house for an active family. The dock was a blessing; no need to launch our center console every day and the bay was deep enough even at low tide. We thoroughly enjoyed the "toys": biking, kayaking, paddle boarding. The kitchen had everything we needed and the bedrooms were comfortable. Great views at sunset and sunrise. Coastal Joe's service was excellent. Looking forward to coming back!

    This house was very nice and clean with stunning views. It was also extremely quiet. The neighborhood is also nice, with a pretty pool on the Bay. If you are going to stay on the Bay side, I can't imagine any better place.

    This was an awesome house, with all the added amenities you could hope for! From bikes to paddle boards and even kayaks, it was great not to have to rent this stuff too. This was our first time to stay on the bay, but this property offered the best of both, with easy access to the beach too! We were VERY pleased !!

    Every year since 2013 we have vacationed on the Gulf. This house was the perfect location for our family to enjoy fishing, snorkeling, and kayaking every day, and sometimes all day long. The views were amazing from the decks on all sides. Easy access to the beach. Wonderful area for families.

    a guest from Johns Creek, GA recommends this vacation rental

    We had the best week staying in this house. It is new and clean and had everything we needed or could imagine needing. The linens provided were nice quality and enough for our family. There wasn't one reason to contact Coastal Joe's the entire week. This property has everything! We spent the mornings watching the sunrise over the bay. Beautiful bay and ocean views from every room in the house. We used the kayaks and paddled out to the sandbar to find starfish and sand dollars. We fished off the dock and loved being on the bay with all of the amenities. We rode bikes every day and went to the clubhouse to swim at the pool. We have visited many Georgia and Florida islands and beaches where we have rented homes and stayed in luxury hotels. This house is the best rental home we have experienced. Would highly recommend this home to any active family/groups looking for a great vacation. We hope to return soon!

    David L from Bentonville, AR recommends this vacation rental

    Very nice neighborhood, all the toys included. The best location on the cape. The house is awesome, it could use a few small touches like wall art. This may be due to being so new. The only con is lots of stairs, but that goes with most beach houses. Lots of wild life both land and sea. Thanks to coastal Joe and the home owner, great job!

    Dustin D from Brunswick, X recommends this vacation rental

    We had a great time. I have 4 little kids and they loved playing in the sand and on the sand bar right out back. The toys provided by the owner is what makes all of the difference! We will definitely be back. Just make sure you get wrist bands when you check in. It is a private community and you need to have them on if you want to use the pool, etc. We arrived late the night before and didn't get the wrist bands until noon the next day. It would have been nice just to have the wrist bands in the envelope with the keys. Other than that, we had a vacation that we won't forget!

    Brian and Susanne H from Denver, NC recommends this vacation rental

    When we arrived at the management office everything was ready to go for our stay and the process was very easy to check in. The home was located only a few minutes drive down the road. The pictures were great but the home is even more lovely once entering it. Plenty of room to spread out, a kitchen to die for and fabulous views from all around. There were plenty of toys for outdoor fun as well. I would recommend bringing beach towels though. There were none at the house for use. Kayaking out to the sand bar was fun for the whole family. We did not have any luck fishing from the dock area outside the house but down at the Stump there were plenty of fish biting. Cape San Blas is a very quiet, sleepy town which was perfect for us. The beaches are very quiet and dog friendly which is even better. There are some great fun towns close by that offer wonderful restaurants and fun shopping. We definitely had a wonderful trip and home to be able to stay at The Sand Bar again. Highly recommend it.

    Julie S from Cooksville, TN recommends this vacation rental

    Our family recently visited Cape San Blas for the first time and were blown away by the beauty of the island, but even more so with the most perfect rental home, The Sand Bar! From the start, the owners as well as the rental company were prompt with responses, professional, and friendly. We had two families of four, and this house provided plenty of room for us to sleep, cook, eat, & hang out in the evenings. The location of this property was perfect! You have the bay access right in your backyard with a private dock. The kayaks, paddle boards, and fishing/ snorkeling equipment were so much fun! Enough bikes, life jackets, and poles were provided for the whole family! Then, you have a very short walk/ bike ride to the Ovation clubhouse with the most gorgeous infinity pool which backs up to the bay. If that is not enough, you can walk right across the street and enjoy the beautiful beach! The modern, state of the art kitchen was awesome and had everything needed for meals. The multiple decks looking out across the bay and beach were so enjoyable in the evenings. The decor and bedrooms were beautifully furnished and comfortable with beach themes throughout. The owners really went above and beyond building and furnishing the Sand Bar! We will most definitely be back and recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect vacation home on the Cape.
