Reviews for this vacation townhouse rental in Cape San Blas, Florida
Great place to stay!!
June 6, 2014
This was our third visit to Cape San Blas and the Barefoot Trace neighborhood. It was our second visit at "Home By the Sea". The Kite's make sure it is "Your Home By the Sea" with all the comforts plus of your home. Everything is upper scale from the Bose stereo to the comfortable beds and nice linens. You only need to pack your personal belongings because everything else is already there. They provide bikes, chairs, umbrella and other extras. No charge for telephone usage and they have wifi. Al makes sure you know everything you need to know about the home and the area. There are several places to visit in the area and he knows them all. We stayed at another townhouse in the same neighborhood last year not owned by the Kite's. Those owners did not provide linens, towels, or free telephone. Buying a telephone card and coming home and doing laundry isn't my idea of a vacation. On the other hand, the Kite's make sure they have their guest taken care of and not just a business. We had a problem with the refrigerator while we were there. Al took care of it immediately and reimbursed us for our food loss. He also treated us to a nice dinner at Port St. Joe for our inconvenience. All in all, if you are looking for a carefree vacation with a very nice home and owners with a beautiful clean and safe beach this is the place for you. We leave our chairs on the beach for the whole week and no one touches them. There is no other place we have been that is as nice than Cape San Blas.

We had a wonder stay. The house was really clean and comfortable. Beds were comfortable, kitchen was well stocked. The best thing about the rental was the owners, Al was supper nice and helpful. Very easy to work with.

LOVE THIS HOUSE!
July 30, 2013
This house has EVERY comfort of home - comfy beds, quality linens, great covered parking and not to mention the kitchen -- there is not one kitchen tool or gadget I can think of that is not here! The weather did not cooperate with our trip to the beach, but the kids (teenagers) enjoyed the movies and the x-box. The deck off the bedroom is a great place to sit and listen to the ocean at night :) I would highly recommend staying at here Al and Susan's place. They were EXTREMELY helpful by recommending places to eat and things to do. VERY NICE PEOPLE! Will visit again :)
Great winter retreat
March 5, 2013
We have spent the last 2 years during Jan & Feb. at Home by the Sea. It has everything you need for a great vacation. Al & Susan are wonderful owners and have anticipated our every need. Comfortable beds are the best when you are there for 2 months. Having bikes in the shed was a bonus for using on the new bike trail. We will be back soon. Pat & Dick

Absolutly Wonderful Family Vacation
August 24, 2011
we really felt right at home with our daughter and our beautiful 2 yr. old granddaughter. Had the comforts of home and the beautiful Gulf of Mexico to play in. very relaxing for us all. Our Grand daughter is on a very nice nap schedule and she too was so at home she stuck right to her nap time and meal times...we all enjoyed the "food" of the sea. Definately will return again together! Thank you Kites for sharing your home with us.
Loved "Home By The Sea"!

Al is an incredibly helpful host, which makes renting from him such a pleasure. His duplex is located on a beautiful, pristine beach on the gulf side of the cape. It is nicely decorated and has all the needed amenities. We enjoyed our week there very much and recommend both Cape San Blas and this rental highly!

My family and I just spent our first vacation at Cape San Blas. This place is truly the epitome of a "restful vacation"! No traffic, no crowds, beautiful beaches, what more could one ask for? We will never return to PCB or Destin. The Home By The Sea was perfect. It had all the amenities of home and the owners did everything to ensure that our time there was wonderful. We will surely put this place on our "future places to stay" list!!!

Testa Family Vacation

The high quality furnishings, appliances, linens, and kitchen items far exceeded our expectations! The jacuzzi was very relaxing at the end of the day. Everything in the house worked perfectly and everything was super clean. The view from the balcony in the master bedroom was spectacular and we could wake up and watch the waves in the ocean from the bed. Oh, and the bed was one of the best ones we've ever slept in and we had an assortment of pillows to choose from. The walk to the beach was easy. It was so handy to have the use of the high quality beach chairs and umbrellas. I can't think of a single thing that would make this place better. When we come back this is where we will be. If you stay here you will not be disappointed! "

Cape San Blas. Home by the Sea
April 6, 2010
If you're looking for a relaxing, quiet place at the beach then this is it. The white sugar sand and the beautiful sunsets are something we won't forget. The cottage decor is bright and tropical & very clean and the king size beds were just great for a restful sleep. The fact that Mr. Kite called to make sure everything was adequate made the whole experience very safe and personal. We also took advantage of the bikes, beach chairs, etc. that Al provided for us. The local food was excellent and lots of hiking trails and parks to work it off. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the future.

We so enjoyed our week at "Home By The Sea"! We had everything we needed inside and outside. The place was so beautifully decorated,too. The next time we come to Cape San Blas, this is where we want to stay.

Rodgers family vacation

This was our second time to stay at "home by the sea". These folks have taken such good care of the place. I've had a back surgery and a neck surgery and require a very good bed at night. The beds at "home by the sea" are outstanding. We were close enough to the beach that I could carry anything we wanted out there without any issues. The beach restoration project has improved an already great beach. You get the sense that you are truly in someone's home and not in a rental while at home by the sea. As long as Al and Susan are renting, we'll only use their place as our retreat from work and the "real world". I'd highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay at the Cape.

Enjoyed every minute at Home by the Sea
May 25, 2009
From start to finish every aspect of staying with at the Kite's Home by the Sea at Cape San Blas was a pleasure. When inquiring about the rental the Kites were extremely helpful with all of our questions about their home and the Cape area. There are several things that are important to us when we are traveling. We want a clean, comfortable, friendly place to stay. Home by the Sea was all of this. The home is beautiful with fun ocean decor, beds are extremely comfortable, well stocked kitchen, plush linens and towels. The Kites made all of their belongings accessible to us including bikes, beach chairs, and fishing equipment. We didn't have to wonder what we were going to do or see while we were there. The Kites gave us so many suggestions about places to visit or even where to buy fresh fish. Actually, all a person needs is access to their beautiful beaches and you don't need anything else. My husband loved fishing from the beach. The views of sunsets and sunrises are unbelievable!

Best Snowbird Experience Possible
May 1, 2009
We spent January and February 2009 at "Home by the Sea" and would truly recommend it to those who enjoy a quiet less crowded place to spend the winter. The Kite's have done a terrific job of decorating to create the "feel" of the beach from the inside out. They were very attentive to our needs and often provided suggestions of things that were coming up on the Cape that we might enjoy doing. For the retired military Snowbirds,Cape San Blas is a great place to stay. Tyndall AFB is about 60 miles away and shopping the Commissary is easy and well worth the drive. We are sure you will be happy with your decision to winter at 'Home by the Sea". We were homesick for the beach as soon as we got home!
May 1, 2009
Everything was so great. We had everything you could imagine. The home is so comfortable and inviting,I just want to go back as soon as we can. Our family rode bikes, walked on the beach, ate lots of good seafood and rested so well.
Owner Supplied Testimonials
03/30/09 WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE TO STAY!!!! We were so blessed to spend our 10 year wedding anniversary at this beautiful "Home By The Sea". The house lacks for nothing: incredible views of the Gulf and beaches, fully stocked kitchen, amazingly comfortable beds, movies, games....The Kite Family have truly thought of everything to make your vacation incredible. We especially are thankful to them for all their wonderful suggestions on things to do in the area. We had a horrible storm front come through, but enjoyed a relaxing time exploring and reconnecting none the less. WE WILL BE BACK! Thank you so much for sharing your treasure with us.

Our stay in Home by the Sea was FANTASTIC. The home was exactly what the photos promised. The atmosphere was relaxing and our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. There is no doubt that when we decide to rent on the Cape again, we will give the Kites a call. They are wonderful renters and made sure that our stay was a pleasent one. The beds were so comfortable we really hated to leave. Yes there are some cheaper rentals in the area, but you get what you pay for. I didn't mind paying what the Kites were asking because it is WELL worth it. It was a phenomenal experiance. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Kite
Sean and Margaret McMillan
We had such a wonderful time! I can not seem to find the words to describe what a great time we all had. It was truly relaxing. Your place is beautifully decorated and includes so many extras that we were all amazed. The week went too fast and we hope to return soon. You truly went above and beyond in every aspect, and I can not thank you enough.
Laurie Watts, Independence, Mo
This place was wonderful. My family enjoyed everything about our stay. The beds are upgrades from what you would expect and the place is supper quiet. As long as I can afford it, this will be my vacation destination. I know most people want to be right on the Gulf. I was a little concerned about how far we would be from the beach. Trust me, it's very close. You can carry any beach stuff easily from the house to the beach. This is the place my family has been looking for. This was the best vacation ever.
robbie rodgers, Farmington, Arkansas
First, THANKS to Al & Susan Kite for having such a great vacation home!! The moment we opened the door it was instant warmth. It was great to have such a welcoming feeling. The home was well furnished with everything you need. The beds were awesome! Probably the best sleep we've had in a while. We had a great time and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Thanks again!

We have been to Cape San Blas several times, and this
trip was one of our most relaxing and enjoyable.
Home by the Sea is located in an area where the beach
is quiet and peaceful. The home itself was furnished
so that you felt you were at home. We will recommend
this house to our friends, and we hope to stay here
again as well.
Wow, Wow, and Wow is all we can say. This house is wonderful. Everything was just awesome. The Kite family has done a wonderful job on this home. Everything we needed was there. The views were awesome from Ocean to Bay. The king size beds up stairs were just fabulous. We were expecting our vacation to be good, but it was way far better than just good, it was awesome. We will be going back.
