The Pickle

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 9, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

Cape San Blas, FL 32456 United States

Only steps away from sugary white sand and turquoise Gulf water! Newly renovated cottage will have yourself begging to be in a 'Pickle'. MBR has King suite, private bath and balcony overlooking the ocean and breathtaking San Blas sunsets. Two Queen bedrooms have newly added decks for enjoying unobstructed bay views. Kids room has Twin/full bunk.



Smell the loamy odor of the bay side air begin to mix with the salty astringence of the sea breeze, as the mainland starts to heat up and pull the breeze in. But inside the 'Pickle' the smell of coffee is giving way to the aroma of Old Bay as the place comes to life in that lazy summer-at-the-beach way. Each morning, the most important question becomes (after lunch is resolved) should I walk or ride my bicycle to begin intensive shelling?



Keywords: private house, shabby chic style, BOTH unobstructed gulf front AND bay views, newly renovated, dog friendly, new furniture, new furnishings, breathtaking sunsets, twin/full bunk, 2 Queen bdrms, 1 King suite, ceiling fans all rooms, polywood adirondack and bar stools.

    a guest from Bodenville, AL recommends this vacation rental

    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. Did not leave until it was repaired. Could not have asked for any more professionalism from all involved. Loved, loved the Pickle and will return.

    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

    a guest from Ocala, Florida recommends this vacation rental

    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

    Jeff H from Douglasville, GA recommends this vacation rental

    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 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.

    a guest from Louisville, KY recommends this vacation rental

    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 Responded on 10/7/2013

      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.

    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.

    Melissa P from Tallahassee, FL recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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!
