Family friendly with gorgeous sunsets!

 Our family of 6 stayed at bayside cottage for vacation. This was our first trip to the area. This cottage sits on the bay. You have beautiful views of the bay and the sunsets are like a painting (only better). The house was well stocked and had plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed the screened in porches! The only improvement I would recommend would be to have a full size trash can in the kitchen. If you haven't stayed near the water before, please bring your bug spray. We really appreciated the extra chairs, kayak, boogie boards, and scalloping items too! Thank you for making our visit relaxing! We recommend: krazyfish grille and we loved the ice cream at Shoobies!

Best On The Bay

 We returned for a fourth visit to Bayside Cottage and as usual it did not disappoint. We love the privacy, (although it does look like something is being built on the next lot) the location and the facilities. Being right on the bay and next to the nature reserve affords some awesome kayaking in the mornings and only a couple miles from the beach for the afternoon. The Cottage itself is always spotless and has everything you could possibly need in a home away from home.

Wonderful Family Vacation

 My family, extended family and two dogs recently stayed at the Bayside Cottage and enjoyed every moment. The house was clean, peaceful and we lacked for nothing while there. We were located close to the Cape San Blas beaches and Port St. Joe. We enjoyed watching the sunsets each night over the bay while sitting on the porches, visiting the beaches and taking the boat out each day. The owner was always available and very helpful. We will definitely stay there again!

 After several scallop trips to St. Joe Bay, we have not found a more comfortable rental than this house. Bayside Cottage is more than just a cottage. It is more like a resort with the privacy of a country home. The bay is only steps away from the back door. Great for kayaking and canoeing! Lots to see and do. You won't go wrong with this rental.

Great owner, house and location!
Posted on : 4/10/2017
 We stayed here for a long weekend with our 10 year old, 13 year old and my parents. House set-up was great. Very clean. We usually stay on Cape San Blas but this was so close and so easy to get to the cape, Port St Joe and Apalachicola. The view is amazing. I hate that we missed the sunsets but we were too busy going to dinner! The kids walked out to the bay and saw thousands of fiddler crabs. We also saw horseshoe crabs and some rays and conchs. Great communication with the owner and just an easy stay. Nice parking as well.

Fabulous Vacation

My husband and I rented  Bayside Cottage for a long weekend getaway. What a pleasant surprise that this cottage was IMMACULATE! It had all the amenities advertised. The bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked with fun dinnerware. We brought our kayaks and enjoyed some beautiful paddles right from the backyard. Did I mention sunsets? The cottage is on pristine St. Joe Bay and faces west. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous! We're already talking abut a return visit in the fall. We highly recommend this property.

 Bayside Cottage is a superb vacation destination in a stunning location. The cottage is well equipped and immaculately clean. Fabulous beaches within a short drive and stunning sunsets across the bay. Don't hesitate to book this place!

  I dont know where to begin.. when I began looking for places for my family to stay at Cape San Blas, after a couple of emails back and forth to the owner, I knew this was the place for us! She went above and beyond the normal owner responsibly! She told us when and where to scallop and how:) the owner also brought us special items to use while at the beach. The cottage was beautiful! Inside and out! Plenty of room and up to date kitchen, immaculately clean! Lots of room to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful views of the bay. The full baths with washer & dryer, were great because of all trips back and forth to the beach and scalloping. We walked out the door to the bay to scallop every morning and went during the afternoon, and when we learned how, it was sooo much fun! We went to all the local favorites, the state park at the end of the Cape, fished around all the hot spots. This house is close enough for a short drive to pick up food. We also ate pounds of shrimp from The Shrimp Company in Port St Joe so YUMMY! I highly recommend this house for everyone to stay at, hopefully not the dates I want because we will be back. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay! And for allowing us to come in early at short notice!

Recharge the Batteries at Bayside !!
Posted on : 4/10/2017
My wife and I stayed for most of a week for our anniversary, and will again. We enjoyed a peaceful, laid back time with all you could possibly ask for to do as a couple, without the crowds and distractions. Awesome place to recharge the batteries and remind yourself why you married your soulmate.
