Even Closer than Picture to Beach
"We loved that the boardwalk is shorter (thus closer to the beach) than expected/pictured. We loved sitting on porch at concrete table till sun too high then went to the partially covered point. We loved the credit for the paddleboards. We saw several dolphins, some closer than 20 yards from the beach. Very relaxing, wonderful soft sand, houses nearby but felt remote, private, uncrowded yet close drive to restaurants in either Appalachicola or Point St Joe, Cape San Blas, even Mexico Beach. Perfect for 2 couples and 3 teens/young adults. Could have 9 if used sofa bed. Only negative would be king bed mattresses almost too soft and might be close to needing to be replaced and glass table top not very practical/hard to keep clean. Would definitely come here again."
Relaxing and Remote!
"The service was wonderful, the house was great - beds comfy, lots of dolphins throughout the day. Hot tub gets dirty fast - sits in full sun. Would rent from this company again!"
"My friends and I had a good time at By-the-Sea. It is small, but just right for the 3 of us. We really liked the nearness to the ocean and the hot tub. We didn't like having to park in the sand and the beds were too soft for us. But the house had what we needed to provide a nice week at the beach and we would probably opt to stay in it again in the future."
Great Experience
"This property has great ocean views just steps away from the beach. We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets from the hot tub tremendously. We had one small problem that we contacted the management company about and it was resolved very quickly! Great experience."
The Right Choice
"Upon arriving to this beautifully updated gulf front home in the quiet Port St. Joe area you know that you made the right choice for your vacation. The home is clean, updated and comfortable. The 2 king bedrooms that open out to the large deck are perfect accommodations. I cannot say enough great things about this place and we are booking for 2 weeks next year!"
Nature Galore
"This was our first time to the Cape San Blas/Indian Pass area and the vacation experience and property exceeded our expectations. By the Sea was just right for our group including our three small dogs. The home is newly remodeled with spectacular ocean views, furnished well, and very clean. Just a few steps from the large deck to the beach and everything on one level made it comfortable and convenient. We saw dolphins every day and often close enough to touch, manta rays, stingrays, tarpon, constantly diving pelicans, and bald eagles. You can just walk along the beach collecting shells and be entertained by the wildlife for hours. We had a great time at the Indian Pass Raw Bar and drove over to Apalachicola for oysters. We went scalloping in the St. Joe Bay and prepared linguini with scallops we harvested ourselves...straight from the bay to table! I would definitely recommend this property and a trip to this beautiful coastal area."
