Sandy Footprints
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Private Heated Pool- Pool heated Spring and Fall through Thanksgiving.

This beautiful home is owned by a family that rented beach homes for their vacations for many years and they know how important a very nicely furnished and extremely well stocked beach home is to the overall enjoyment of your family's vacation. Fantastic home that is well maintained and beautiful! Very popular with lots of repeat guests. 

 Very well maintained home with large private heated pool and wonderful views from the decks. There is an outdoor kitchen with plenty of seating at the bar and a gas stainless steel grill that Bobby Flay would be proud to use! It also has a built in fridge so you don't have to climb the stairs for that cold drink when relaxing by the pool.

The pool at Sandy Footprints is one of, if not the largest, private pools for a vacation rental home on Cape San Blas. It's even larger than many of the shared community pools on the Cape. This home is only 300 feet from the beach. You will also have quick and easy access to the warm waters and white sand beaches of Cape San Blas.
There are two large gulf facing covered decks with plenty of outdoor furnishings. Underneath the home you will find plentiful parking. Need room to also park your boat? - there is plenty of easy access and turn around parking space!

Sandy Footprints is very well furnished inside too. Living Room has a large flat HDTV and all bedrooms have TV's. The kitchen is overstocked with lots of gadgets. The gulf facing dining room combined with the breakfast bar will seat 12 for meals.

3rd Floor offers King Master, 2nd queen room, and a room with 2 twin/full bunks, and laundry area. Bunk and queen room share full bath in the hall.

Sandy Footptints is located on a long drive with only 3 other homes making it one of our most private rentals. It's also located on the north end of Cape San Blas very close to the state park.

Wonderful Down Time Experience
My husband and I along with our two cocker spaniels spent the week before Labor Day at Dandy Dunes and couldn't ask for a better respite from our busy world. Teresa was exceptionally helpful with getting us set up -- everything was just as expected when we arrived. The condo was just as photographed if not better, we were located within a few steps to everything, the beach, the pool, the clubhouse and had perfect locations to walk the dogs. We will definitely come back to Dandy and Barrier Dunes.
Spring Break- Family of 7
Wow!!! What a wonderful week! Family of 7 from middle Tennessee. We have stayed in Cape San Blas before but this is definitely the best house. Nicely decorated, comfortable beds, kitchen stocked with EVERYTHING you need, nice pool, easy beach access. Honestly, other than a slightly better beach view, why would you pay more to stay in something "gulf front"? Discovered a potential issue with the AC system and was able to reach Teresa immediately. She has the repair guy here within 2 hours and it was taken care of. Very responsive. House exactly as described (probably better). Only thing I didn't really know was one of the bedrooms (with queen bed) is on the main level and the other three are upstairs. My oldest teen loved the privacy of that room. Outdoor kitchen was perfect - we used it almost every day for dinner. The refrigerator keeps things REALLY cold. Local stuff: Indian Pass Raw Bar is good place to eat (you only get the seafood - no veggies or anything else on the side). "The Trading Post" on Cape San Blas road is a good place for stuff you forgot at the grocery store. Nice folks, ready to answer all your questions. They make a decent pizza and there's a liquor store in the same building! Don't even think twice about renting this place - just go for it!
I Know We Will Be Back!!!

Wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had !! It was so peaceful and relaxing. We had the beach, the pool and did a lot of grilling !!! We really enjoyed the Cape area !! Very pretty. We will certainly Love to come back again to the area !!! Thank you for sharing this lovely home !!!
Beautiful Place
This home was a wonderful place to stay at Cape San Blas, close to the park and not crowded in the beach area. It was so clean and very spacious - perfect for a family of 10. The beach access was close and the pool made it so comfortable during the warm weather. Sandy Footprints is a place well worth checking into.
See you next summer!
We loved this place. There were three families and three dogs. It was perfect! The room layout was awesome and I love the openness of the kitchen. We will definitely be back with the other side of the family.
Second Year Here
Another fantastic week spent on Cape San Blas. Sandy footprints was great and we enjoyed the updates to the house. Teresa's Beach Homes was wonderful to work with and we look forward to a visit again next year!
Grandmother takes Grands to the beach!!!
5 grands and 5 adults=a GRAND time. We left our own Sandyfootprints everywhere!!! But there were none when we arrived. Everything clean and ready for memories when we drove up. So surprised to see all the fun stuff in the pool closet...lots of sand buckets, kites, boogey boards, chairs and floats. Thanks for whoever left them for all to enjoy. What a great pool!!!! little feet could walk underwater on edge completely around the pool. Such a safety feature. Loved the safety key latch on the pool fence....however a little discipline needed to have little boys not crawl over the fence! Bunk beds for kids and TV a great combo. Baby gates and high chair also a big help!!! Walk to beach so easy and close even for 2 year olds. View of beach from upstairs porch great. Just like well stocked. Lots of heavy duty jellyroll pans made baking a pound of bacon a cinch. Big Electric Skillet was great for frying shrimp and making pancakes. Used Weber grill but BIG gas grill by pool and refrig there too. Enjoyed sweet communication from Teresa and staff...always responded timely. Wifi worked well. Yeah....would love to come back:-)
Beach Lover
I have lost count how many years we have stayed here. The best place on CSB for summer vacation, especially for our grandchildren. The private pool is a lifesaver when vacationing in July. Plenty of room for our family of 11. Always clean. The outdoor cooking area is perfect. We never The the Cape while vacationing here. The icing on the cake is working with Terri and Teresa's Beach Homes. Great folks to work with and always so gracious.
The Kemps
Wow ! what a great place to stay ! My husband and I have rented from Teresa and Terri for several years and they are more than accommodating ! Sandy Footprints is perfect for our large family , my daughter and her family , my husband's son and his family , it's a perfect place for us all to relax and catch up with one another , perfect accommodations , with one bed room and bath on main floor and 3 bedrooms up stairs , perfect kitchen and dinning room , not to mention the heated pool and out door kitchen , Just perfect ! We love this home !
Wonderful stay at Sandy Footprints!
Thank you so much to Terri for being so helpful for our last minute trip! We appreciate that you stayed in contact with us and listened to our needs. Sandy Footprints was great for us & our two dogs, was very clean with lovely decor ( and we are very particular when we rent vacation rentals) kitchen was very large with every amenity that we could ask for, the Sandy Footprints was just a short walk over the boardwalk to the gorgeous beach & had wonderful views of the gulf from the upper deck. The decks were large and spacious with plenty of seating if you have a large group. The outdoor kitchen area and the heated pool were fabulous. This is a great home to for a larger family, but it suited my husband and I with our two dogs just perfectly with plenty of extra space! We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation & will definitely be calling you whenever we come back & we cant wait!! Also, I would like to add that it’s very nice to book with someone that is local to the area and knows each of the homes ( First time we went there we booked through a company that our rental agent was in a different state & couldn’t really give me true advice and we were completely unfamiliar with the area) . Thank You!
Texas Family Bi-Yearly Trip
This is our 2nd time at Sandy Footprints and still continue to be impressed with the home and Teresa's and her staff. The home is well cared for, easily fits the 11 of us and has everything you need right there. Having the pool in addition to the beach is really a must now. Late in the evening a cool swim is nice without having to go down to the ocean. Be prepared for amazing view of stars and shooting stars, plus the evening lightning is quite a show. Although just a hair off the beach (75 yrds), you can still see, hear and smell the sea. The area is quiet and perfect for getting away but still have places to grab a bite if you want. (Skully's is a must as well as the fresh donuts at the Trading post) We will be back in 2020 and will stay at Sandy Foot prints without a doubt. Really for the $, this house/pool combination is really the best deal on Cape San Blas.
We love this beautiful home!
This is the second year we have stayed at Sandy Footprints and we absolutely love this house! It's very accommodating for large groups and families. The main level is wonderful with a beautiful, well-stocked kitchen, open to the dining and living areas. We love to cook our seafood dinners and the outdoor kitchen is a griller's dream! And the pool is gorgeous! We spend most of our time in the afternoon around the pool. Cape San Blas is just as beautiful today as it was a year ago. The beaches are beautiful and as always the people are warm and friendly. Yes, we did see hurricane damage on our way to and from the house, but that was to be expected. These communities have come a long way in a short amount of time. Our hearts go out to everyone who lost so much and we continue to pray for their recovery. We love this area and can't wait to book our next vacation! Thank you Teresa and Terri for providing such beautiful homes for us to enjoy!
Better than new!
Sandy Footprints has been completely rehabbed and is better than new! Fully stocked and furnished with everything for a great vacay. Sunsets from the top deck were awesome! Kitchen is nicely stocked. Beds comfy, WiFi strong, outside fridge is cold, pool was just right. All we needed was more time!!!!
Perfect pet-friendly beach home
I can't say enough good things about this house; the private pool, the short walk to the beach, pet friendly, and the house itself is just amazing! I've been coming to the Cape for over 10 years and this is by far my favorite place to stay. Just 7 months after the storm the beach is just as lovely and the sunsets are still as breathtaking as ever. Most businesses are back open, things are returning back to normal, and the people are happy to have you there. With that being said this was one of our best vacations yet. I look forward to coming back in a few months to spend another week!
Awesome Place for an Awesome time
The house was so nice and super clean! The location was perfect! Loved pool and teresa’s help! 100%
Sandy Footprints 2019
Beautiful home. Plenty of room for our large family. Very well stocked kitchen. Short easy walk to beach using boardwalk. FANTASTIC pool!!
Perfect family beach home
What an amazing week we had at Sandy Footprints;) This is our 7th year vacationing at Cape San Blas and our 1st time at this home. There were 12 of us ranging from 3 months to age 59. It was perfect for each age range & the wonderful large kitchen allowed for some quality family time. The pool was a perfect relaxing spot after playing on the beach. Great bathrooms & bedrooms. No one ever felt crowded. Teresa & Terri were the greatest at communicating & that made preparation for our vacation much easier. They were quick to respond to any questions while we were there. The 2 local businesses we used the most were Trading Post & St Joe Shrimp Co. Prices and items needed were great. We visited the preserve while there & sad to see what damaged occurred but also excited to see how nature added more beauty to the area. Definitely recommend this location if you have a large group that enjoys quality time
It was a week of many opportunities
The views from the decks were outstanding. The upper floor was great with its 3 bedrooms - one of which was a bunk room ... perfect for many small ones or many big ones as well ... the kitchen was large and well equipped ... Being at the end of the cape the silence at night was refreshing. Having your own pool made the whole experience even more special.
Nice North Cape home
We had a pleasant week in Sandy Footprints last month, lousy weather and all It's a clean nicely decorated home on North Cape. The master suite was a bit cramped for our tastes, but we''l be back again for our annual May trip since the house next door we normally rent, Bella Vista, is undergoing renovations. I have recommended this house to friends.
A perfect week in a perfect beach house!
We had such a wonderful stay at the beautiful, comfortable and perfectly appointed Sandy Footprints. The space was exactly the right fit for our group. We used the kitchen for several meals and it was equipped with everything we needed. We spent time in the pool everyday and the short walk to the beach was easy. We had our pups and they loved the house and the covered deck where they watched us as we swam in the pool. We loved the restaurants and stores we visited on cape especially Weber’s Donuts! The piggly wiggly in Port St Joe had everything we needed to stock up for the week. My kids (adult and teen) and the friends they brought all thought it was one of if not the best vacations they had ever been on. Hope to be back!!
Family Vacation
Our vacation included our grown children and their families. Twelve people spending a week together was totally awesome. Our youngest grandchild is 2 and the oldest is 20. Many memories were made and will be iremembered forever. The condo was awesome, fully stocked with anything we needed. When we arrived it is in immaculate condition, therefore we left it the same way.
Perfect Spring Break
We had a wonderful Spring Break at Sandy Footprints. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. I loved the huge kitchen which is well stocked with appliances, pots and pans and cooking utensils. Every room had a TV. The view from the top deck is amazing and the walk to the beach feels much closer than the 260 feet noted in the description. The house is very private and the pool and outdoor kitchen made for a wonderful experience. The pool is warm and well taken care of; in fact, the pool company came mid-week to clean the pool which was an added bonus. We have rented from Terri and Teresa for many years and have never been disappointed. They are so easy to work with and the pricing is always very fair. You can always expect well appointed homes with quality finishes. The towels and linens are always good quality too. I can't say enough great things about this house and our experience. We will defintely stay at Sandy Footprints again - Next time we will bring friends because the house is enormous for 2 adults and 2 kids. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
Wonderful Family Vacation
Our family of 6 plus our golden retriever "Angel" had an excellent time staying at Sandy Footprints. The house was perfect with everything that you could possibly need to make your stay very comfortable and fun. The large heated swimming pool was great!! We used it every day. The walk to the beach is very easy and may I add that we used "Happy Cabanas" service for the cabanas and chairs! How nice to just carry your cooler and beach bag! No heavy items!! They come in the morning and set up and come in the evening to take them down. We have stayed at some of Teresa's other homes and all of them are well stocked and very clean. Teresa and Terri are so easy to deal with. It is a pleasure just talking to them and getting updates about the Cape when making reservations. We have been coming to the Cape for 13 years now and we will stay at one of their properties for the next 13. We have no complaints and would refer them to any of our friends or family!! We have just returned and we are already making plans for next summer! Can't Wait!!!
Great Vacation Home
This home is perfect it is well equipped with every type of kitchen item you may need. The private heated swimming pool was very nice, It has a very nice outdoor kitchen with a gas grill and a charcoal weber grill. With only a few steps to the great beach. ,We have stay here for two years in a row and will be back next year. Teresa is like the greatest she will help you with anything you need thanks so much.
Beyond Expectations
First and foremost, booking Sand Footprints was incredibly easy. Terri and Teresa kept an excellent line of communication with us from when we booked, to when we were staying there all the way until after we left. After staying there, I can't thank you ladies enough that you share this amazing place with other people. I've never seen a more beautiful place! We weren't sure what to expect since neither of us had ever heard of Cape San Blas / Port St Joe, but we thought we would try it out. Zero regrets! It is clean, quiet, secluded, beautiful and everyone was incredibly welcoming. It is an EXTREMELY dog friendly area too, which is great! The home is located well up into the northern region of the Cape San Blas peninsula in Port St Joe. We had the chance to drive up the coast a couple of times and also walk the beach in each direction multiple times. After seeing much of what Cape San Blas has to offer, we agreed 100% we had one of the best locations and houses. We spent probably 4 nights grilling downstairs in the outdoor kitchen area (amazing), and although we had a couple cool days, we did get a chance to swim in the heated pool a few times too (which almost no other house has a private pool that we saw). Upstairs on the main floor you have a wide open floor plan with the living room and dining area all open to the kitchen. A nice big walkout deck was good to have for hanging out, which we did everyday, and the stairs from the deck that led to the outdoor kitchen and pool were very convenient. The top floor, The master bedroom was perfect size and had another big walkout deck. From the top deck you could watch the sunset and check the water out in the daytime. Great views and a feeling of serenity up there. Honestly, overall, the house was so great it was hard to leave when we were going down to the water. You have great privacy because your neighbors are set up to be in the back of the house towards the water like you are. The only thing I would caution to anyone is to be ready to conquer some stairs. This should be nothing new to anyone who knows beach houses, but we were rookies. :) If you are looking for shopping and bars, this might not be the best choice. But if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet getaway - you found it. It was a mostly older crowd, but my girlfriend and I loved it (We're in our 30's). Sandy Footprints was a beautiful home and we think we made a great decision booking it. We hope you find it as memorable as we did.
A Dream Come True
The perfect house in the perfect location. It is a beautiful, clean, comfortable, well appointed home, equipped with everything you would find in your own house. The open concept of the kitchen, dining and living areas, along with the high ceilings, give Sandy Footprints a wonderful openness while still feeling homey. You don't have to bring a thing, the huge kitchen has everything, right down to the spices. Several people could prepare food in the kitchen without the usual '”hip checks”.' All of this opens onto a huge deck, wonderful for morning coffee and any meal. We spent a good deal of time on the deck, warm breezes and sunshine from dawn until dusk Being from a northern climate, we realized we gained almost two hours of extra daylight which translated into more time outside. The bedrooms on the second floor have fabulous views. We could get out of bed, take a few steps and be on another huge deck, sit in the lounge chairs, listen to the surf and take the time to watch the seagulls playing in the wind. While my husband headed out to golf or fish, I set up my easel for painting my landscapes on that deck, there is so much room. The outdoor kitchen was a bonus for us, the barbecue and sitting area was perfect for lunch after we returned from the beach. When we wanted to be busy, there was the Shrimp-fest, Eagle seminar, kayaking, the Oyster-fest in Apalachicola, sunset cruises, joining the library book sale, Gumbo-fest in Mexico Beach. We made new friends at the St. Josephs spaghetti dinner fund raiser. Saturdays we went to the market and found gifts and goodies for friends and family. Toured the impressive St. Joseph State Park. Walking on the clean, white beach everyday, anytime, collecting shell treasures was the best of everything. The warm sand seeping into your sandals, the smell and taste of the Gulf soothing your soul. The quality of our lives is so much better at Sandy Footprints. As first time Florida travellers, we had no idea what to expect. Teresa's Beach Homes family patiently walked us through the process and took such good care of us. If it wasn't for this fabulous pet friendly home and wonderful family business, we never would have been able to have this “dream come true” vacation. We would never stay anywhere else, we can't wait to go back next year.
Absolutely Perfect!
Sandy Footprints was the perfect place for our family! The house was very clean, well equipped, so bright and cheerful! The pool, the beach, the house, the weather, the fishing, the privacy- it all was perfect! Teresa and Terri took great care of us with their cheerful communication and quick responses. We highly recommend this house and booking with these charming ladies!
Great Vacation

Such a nice place to stay. Home, pool,beach very nice. Loved that the home only had 2 close neighbors. Will stay here again for sure. Do not hesitate to make this your vacation destination

So Relaxing
The house was incredible. The beach was not crowded and great for the kids. We will definitely be back.
We have been coming to "The Cape" for over 20 years. We started in smaller condos and as our family grew we required more space. We discovered Sandy Footprints a few years ago and just when I thought our Cape vacations couldn't get any better...they did!! Well kept, beautifully decorated, great layout, wonderful views, location, private pool, outdoor kitchen....this place is perfect. Making reservations through is easy and the people are great. If you have a large group, are a TRUE beach lover, this is the place for you. Each time we come we plan our next trip back and Sandy Footprints is where EVERYONE wants to go. Love the Cape!
Freaking Awesome!
We had such a great time at Sandy Footprints. The rain came for a couple days, but we still had fun. Didn't have any problems with the house, everything was immaculate. Thank You so much!
