Wonderful Stay in the MOST Beautiful home! This was our first trip to Cape San Blas and it couldn’t have been better! Tylor the property manager went beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. The home was impeccably clean and stocked with everything you could possibly want and more. When we asked if the pool could be heated Tylor came within an hour to handle it. He even greeted us on our arrival to make sure we knew how everything worked and felt at home. From the linens, towels, beach chairs, kitchen ware- everything is top of the line. We surely felt spoiled! We will definitely return. Thank you for making our first experience on Cape San Blas amazing!!!

We have been going to CSB for vacation with our children and friends for last 18 years. We have stayed at this house several times and it is just perfect! The house is beautiful! Nicely decorated and lots of space. Lots of nice touches when we arrived! Chocolate and mints on bed, gift bag with goodies on table, coffee/dish soap/dishwasher detergent and other essentials provided! I have never been to a house with a kitchen this well furnished! We do a lot of cooking and eating and had all of the appliances and gadgets that we needed! The house was extremely clean. Bedrooms with nice and comfy beds and linens. Lots of nice towels for all of the family without having to wash constantly. Great views of the beach that is a short walk away. But if walking is an issue, a golf cart is provided! There are lots of chairs, floats and beach items at house so no need to bring a ton of those items. If the beach is not your thing, you can always stay at the pool at the house! Right outside of the gate for the community is the perfect path for running or walking! I would get up early, run on path and then come back and jump in pool! So nice! Tylor was extremely helpful and accommodating! Had his cell number so we could text him anytime that we needed anything! Would highly recommend this house, VIP and Tylor!!

This house was perfect for a girls trip! Beautifully decorated and every detail and touch thought out. Kitchen was fully stocked and then some. We needed nothing! Sunrise and coffee on the deck is an must! Super clean and the location is close to everything. Tylor was very accommodating. Can’t wait to rebook!

Our family of 6 rented this property to extend our vacation a few more days past our planned stay. The place was very clean and beautifully decorated. The host was very easy to work with and accommodated our needs and checked in with us to see if we needed anything. He made the check in very easy. The place was stocked with all the necessities and the VIP cleaning even left coffee, sunscreen and champagne for us. Great place! 5 stars from our family of 6. Would highly recommend and hopefully we’ll be able to rent from this host in the future.

Tylor and VIP Vacation Rentals saved our vacation! Our original reservation with a different property management company got canceled the night before we were scheduled to arrive due to electrical issues from a lightning strike. We had to scramble to find a new house that could accommodate our group of 10 adults and landed on The Hideaway. From the moment we reached out to inquire about the house (the night before we were supposed to arrive) through the end of our stay, Tylor made himself available to answer any questions we could possibly have. Words cannot describe how amazing our stay at The Hideaway was. The house was stocked with ample supplies/dishes/glasses/towels/utensils/soap/etc. It was beautifully decorated and had plenty of comfortable seating for a large group. The outdoor amenities were incredible. We spent hours and hours together on the deck off the main living area and on the bottom floor deck playing pool, swimming in the pool, and relaxing in the hot tub. I still can’t get over how gorgeous the private beach was. The walk down the pathway toward the beach was equally beautiful. On our last night, we carried our beach chairs out to the dark beach to look at the stars— it was breathtaking. As a group we only had a couple of minor suggestions, which I’ve shared below. -It would be nice to have the propane tank for the grill full upon arrival. We wanted to grill out this first night but the propane tank was empty and the charcoal in the bucket was wet. -We spent so much time outdoors, an outdoor TV on either deck would have been awesome! -There is a huge closet packed with beach chairs/pool floats/sand toys. We rented chairs on our way down and would not have needed to if we knew there were so many already at the house. -Not a suggestion but a heads up that the walkway down to the beach becomes rather narrow with no railing. I could see this being a hazard for small children.

Perfect Spring Getaway: This Bay House is the perfect getaway! It was beautifully decorated, quiet, super clean, peaceful, and very comfortable. Owners thought of everything you could want or need and the location was great — an easy walk to the beach right across the street! Perfect for a girls getaway and we can’t wait to vacation here again!! Would highly recommend.

This house was the perfect house for our family!  The property manager truly understands hospitality.  From the planning leading up to the arrival, he was extremely helpful and accommodating.  Upon our arrival, the house was equipped with the most wonderful welcoming touches.  There were coordinating soap sets throughout the house and in every bathroom including mints and chocolates!  The house felt very well equipped with everything we would need to make our stay comfortable.  We had mentioned we were celebrating a big birthday and a big anniversary and the property manager surprised us with two DELICIOUS locally made cakes (including candles) and a bottle of champagne and a goodie bag including coffee and other local treats.  The clean and updated décor felt comfortable, yet upscale.  The pillows, sheets and towels felt new and so soft – these are the things we notice and appreciated!  We were a group of 11 and there was plenty of space for us to spread out.  The kids enjoyed the card table including chess/checkers set, shuffleboard game, and the outdoor hot tub and pool table.  I think that’s where they spent most of their time!  We all enjoyed sitting outside on the decks and on the porch swing watching the beautiful views of the dunes and gulf.  The boardwalk is perfect to get you out to the beach.  And with a cart, you can easily carry all your chairs, umbrellas, and coolers with ease.   This house was in the perfect location and close to many great options for dinning out – Port St Joe and Indian Pass were all just a few minutes’ drive from the house.  We look forward to coming back to stay again soon to this treasure on the Cape.

One of a Kind on the North Cape: We’ve been coming to the Cape over the past 14 years for the slower pace that creates a chance for couples, Grandparents, children of all ages, in-laws, and grandchildren to connect, laugh, and eat! We just recently returned from a week at “Memories by the Sea” and oh what a wonderful week. “Memories by the Sea” is truly one of a kind on the North Cape. The architecture and decorating create a quintessential beach vacation home that feels like a warm hug. Her ambiance embodies the entire romance and relaxation of the Cape experience. Far removed from the modern and hectic pace of life at home we often commented that we felt like we were in a romantic “Hallmark” beach movie. One thing we have learned is that when the entire family is together it is good to have separate spaces so everyone can enjoy their own thing. This home creates cozy spaces through comfortable size rooms and large separate decks providing space to sunbath, read a book, paint landscapes, play cards, watch the waves, and view spectacular sunsets. Nestled close to the dunes under endless stars and within earshot of the waves the swim spa was one of our favorite hangouts. Now to the functional stuff…the mattresses were all very comfortable pillow tops, not too soft, not too hard, and not too hot. If you’ve vacationed on a rock hard mattress before you’ll understand how important this comment is. The laundry room was even organized with bins and labels to find all sorts of handy things you didn’t bring. The kitchen was well stocked with all the pots, pans, utensils, and containers we needed including plastic wine glasses…did I mention the swim spa. Lol. We could gush on for hours about how nice the home is…and we did. At the end of the trip what we can say is book it now! “Memories by the Sea” will be a special experience whether you’re a first time or long time “Caper”.

Tylor was phenomenal he was in touch from beginning to end. I let him know that it was going to be my 50th birthday weekend celebration. I had 60 people from Georgia and New York coming to celebrate with me in Cape San Blas! The hideaway house was the perfect fit for 16 of my immediate family members and the backdrop for a beautiful 50th celebration. I have to say I am a little picky when it comes to decor, bedding and cleanliness. When I first walked in to the house, it was far better than the pictures showed. It had the most beautiful coastal vibe. The kitchen was stocked perfectly with everything needed. A wonderful sound bar speaker. A closet full of beach, toys, corn hole and the outdoor pool table was a hit!!! And that’s not even talking about the perfectly heated pool in January that stayed full of kids of all ages. The hot tub and party lights that draped over the decking was 100%. This house lacks nothing. The beautiful toiletries that were left in each bathroom from shampoo, hand soap, lotion, even breath, mints made this property first class. We loved having two refrigerators/freezer. One upstairs in the kitchen and one downstairs inside the lower level close to the pool. The elevator was a wonderful bonus to getting luggage to the third-floor. we hosted 40 people on the back pool deck with The Real Paella Catering and then used light up your night bonfire that was ready for us at the beach following dinner. It truly was the most perfect home for this occasion. I was lucky enough to snag the 2nd master on the third floor and woke up to the most amazing views on the island. Just breathtaking I can sit here and think if there was any negatives about the home and cannot truly come up with one. It was perfection. Any family that rents this house is lucky and me and my family will be back. And not only that I will be following Tylor’s other rentals because he too is first class. His assistant also popped over to check to see if we needed anything. So Grateful!

Plein Air Paradise: Such a beautiful home with multiple patios/terraces to enjoy the ocean view and breezes. The luxury swim spa was perfect therapy for neck and back soreness. Steps away from ocean sunsets & Bay sunrises make the best memories. Watercolor sketching in a private Retreat – #blessed

We have come to the Cape multiple times and never stayed in such a well stocked and clean home. The space was perfect for our 2 families of 4. Everyone had their own space, it was never crowded, and such good gathering areas for meals and games. The linens, the supply of toiletries, the sweet gift bag on arrival, there were little touches that are top notch and definitely create a VIP feel. Tylor was great to work with, quick to respond and available for anything we would need, which was nothing, it was all great. We will definitely be back!

Slice of Heaven! Just returned from 9 hour drive home. Exhausted, but I feel I must leave a review before I can allow my head to hit the pillow as our stay was a one of a kind. You open the door and it felt like you walked into a movie scene. Everything was just so exquisite. Attention to detail abounded. It had unique appeal to both the men and women in our party. It took about 2 seconds to feel at home. The hot tub called my name every morning. We went for a sunset ocean view and we giggled that it was 30 seconds to a dazzling orange sky. I hate to pump it up too much for fear of not getting even a sniff to rebook as word will undoubtedly get out. But, leaving an accurate review of our incredible stay is the only way I know how to say THANK YOU! It is in the best community on the cape. It has the best location. And it is THE BEST ocean front property. The screened in balconies were probably my favorites. The one on the first floor was where we ate our breakfast and dinner and most lunches with sea breezes and the soothing lapping of the ocean. Heavenly. Can’t wait to return!

This open floor plan home was absolutely perfect! Perfect location, steps away from the Ocean. The views from the Three balcony’s were spectacular. From the well stocked home to the Beautiful beach decor. Screened end porch made it perfect for eating outside. I could go on and on about this beautiful home. Best family vacation! Cape San Blas is so peaceful.

Awesome Place: We had a great stay in an awesome place. This is the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in. The kitchen has everything you need to make great meals. The decor is beach’s shabby chic. It has adequate living room and kitchen space to be comfortable. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. It was VERY clean. The view of the bay is amazing. It was nice to walk out on the pier and just chill. We brought our kayaks and were able to launch them from the pier. It was really convenient. I loved sitting in the porch, drinking coffee and observing g the wildlife on the bay. It is convenient to the trading post, scallop cove, and the beach. You can either walk to the beach or drive to cape palms to access the beach. It’s an easy walk to Scully’s for some low country boil. Over-all it is was a great week, and I highly recommend this rental.

This rental is a big yes: If you are thinking of renting this property, keep reading and get all the details from experienced renters who have rented over six West Florida homes in the last year. We are also quite choosy and value minded. If you are interested in the details on why this rental is set apart from the rest then keep reading ‘till the end. LOCATION– The forgotten coast is a true gem. The house itself has a beautiful and advantageous placement on the cape. Your main view is the peaceful and picturesque bay of Port Saint Joe. The sunrise, natural bird songs and panoramic views are ever-changing and always a pleasure to experience on the daily. Even the view from the driveway is entertaining when watching the Egrets and Cranes fish for their meals in the well landscaped fresh water ponds that spread across the entryway to the home. The short ride to some of the best beaches are convenient. There is also a great wildlife park located a few miles up the road that spans great dunes and terminates at the tip of the cape with great beaches and viewpoints. THE HOME– The home has a great energy. The decorations highlight the ambiance of the cozy home. I would call the feel… beachy-rustic-chic. There is an excellent balance of masculine and feminine décor that creates a great energy and vacation vibe. Each item in the home has form, function and beauty. There are neighbors but you feel alone as your view is completely uninterrupted. The area is quiet and secluded compared to most of Florida’s coastal areas. It is increasingly rare to rent in Florida where peaceful and powerful coastal nature dominate the landscape. The beds are soft and comfortable with great linens. The bathrooms are updated, clean and beautiful. Most everything in the homes is new and clean. The climate control is on point and easily adjusted. The King size beds are a great choice and even with big beds the rooms feel spacious and not cramped. The appliances are all new and clean, fulfilling all our needs. We were pleased to find a fully stocked kitchen right down to the tiny important things you didn’t think you needed. Even the utensils and cookware are top quality and healthy minded. We did not use the TVs much but they are new, smart, huge and quality. The rooms feel spacious and clean with great views from the main rooms. The morning light entering the home bring to life each day’s adventures. Often, a coffee and accompanying view from the deck are a highlight of each day. The yard and dock access are one of the coolest parts of the properties exterior/surroundings. Each walk on the dock presents new wildlife and opportunities for spotting fish as well as catching dinner. There are rental companies for bikes, kayaks and SUPs just up the road. Kayak fishing in the bay was my favorite outside activity this trip, catching red drum and sea trout within shouting distance from the dock. AMENITIES- There are restaurants, bars, bait & tackle shops and some general stores located with a mile or less. A full grocery with organic foods is in Pt. Saint Joe about 20-25 minutes away. BEACHES- The beaches are excellent and have a private beach vibe with little to no crowds. The sand is white, soft and fun for all. As mentioned, all the beaches of interest are close with public access and parking. SPECIAL THANKS to TYLER- Tyler (The owner of VIP) was kind, thoughtful, accommodating and talented. He has left his artistic touch on the home with his professional passion for interior decoration. He anticipated on our needs and payed attention to any requests. I would 100% recommend this rental experience to anyone looking for a relaxing, fulfilling, beautiful and adventurous vacation.

Fantastic All Around! This was a fantastic family vacation. Admittedly, we could have had several more people stay with us in order to make use of all the space in this house, but it was absolutely perfect for each of us to have our space and still have space to share together when we chose to. We had every kitchen appliance/gadget we could think of needing and then some. I think the favorite was the ice machine – sometimes it’s the little things. The bathrooms and bedrooms were so nicely decorated – you just felt spoiled everywhere you went. I loved so many things about this home, but 2 things stood out – the folding window in the kitchen providing access to beach breeze and, of course, the beach itself – enjoying fire on the beach watching the sunset – it was like no one else was there. All the beach equipment/toys were just a great bonus. The outdoor furniture with throw pillows made every space perfect to capture as much of the outdoors as possible. We could have stayed forever.

Beautiful House on the Bay: I can’t say enough about this charming beach house. The decor was beautiful with very unique pieces. Kitchen fully stocked, which is great to know prior to arriving. You do not need to bring anything from home. Beautiful sunrises on the bay and a short walk to the gulf. The owner thought of everything for a truly VIP experience.

Perfect- perfect location (close access to Presnells/Captain Clint’s boat launch), perfect communication from the host, perfect set up for a big family like ours (enjoyed having 8 adults and 8 children all at the same table for meals). Family enjoyed the beach, private pool, hot tub, corn hole boards, beach gear, double outdoor showers, and swing on porch. Master was immaculate with lots of extra space with incredible views. My children and grandchildren don’t want me to say too many nice things so our dates for this house don’t get stolen for the next year.

Top Notch! Every detail of this house is top notch. From the elevated kitchen furnishings to the comfortable mattresses to the location on the beach. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is looking for an upscale beach house. Tyler the manager was very responsive to our questions.

This is a beautiful home and well taken care of. It has EVERYTHING you need including gorgeous views of the beach. You can literally walk back and forth from the beach to the house all throughout the day as needed. The swim spa is great and so is the neighborhood pool across the street. We loved everything about our stay and will definitely return!

This was our 2nd vacation to CSB, and our 2nd stay in the Seagrass neighborhood. This time, we had 7 adults and 3 kids 3 and under. The absolute best part of this rental was all of the SPACE! Even with a big group made of 4 families, each of us had more than enough room to be together as a group or alone for some downtime. We planned to have one more family join us, but they were not able to this time. If they had, we still would have had room for everyone. The next best part was it is set up much like a hotel. With 3 kids 3 and under, it was a relief that there wasn’t so much decor that we as parents had to worry. Unlike a hotel, just about anything we could possibly want was provided: kitchen wise, towels, and beach gear. Our whole group went out to eat once, but most of the time we rotated who made breakfast and dinner. The kitchen was easy to cook in; there was plenty of space to work and eat together. Our group went to the beach several times; the location of the house was awesome. You can see the beach/gulf from 3 different decks, and the walk to beach access takes about 2 minutes even with kids. We made the trip to Port St. Joe almost everyday for groceries and to take the kids to different parks. Over the course of our stay, we made it to 10 different playgrounds. That is something our 3 year old won’t forget about this vacation. The Trading Post, Weber’s Donuts, ConeHeads, Long Bills… all very easily accessible if you don’t want to drive as much as we did. The pool was a good size, and I especially appreciated that it was fenced so the kids wouldn’t wander toward it accidentally. We used the outdoor shower after beach trips to remove sand; the kids seemed to enjoy this more than actual showers! Tylor was extremely easy to work with; our group was able to plan this trip last minute. We appreciated all of his help! If I have to pick 1 negative thing… we couldn’t find an ice cream scoop. Seriously, I’m reaching. Book. the. trip.

We couldn’t be more pleased with our time at Northern Palms. We booked this home for the space, and the room to park a boat. The home was beautiful, well appointed, and it made it extremely easy to entertain a large group of individuals, couples and families. I don’t think there was one thing that the property was lacking. The beds were soft, the linens were fresh and clean, there was even ice-makers in the kitchen and the lounge area. Our group was made up if contractors and construction executives, and everyone was very pleased with the quality and attention to detail in the beautiful home. It is an extremely peaceful vacation home, with a perfect pool area, and a view of the ocean. If you have the opportunity to stay here, definitely do it!! We will be back as soon as possible😊
