Relaxing week

We had a wonderful relaxing week at The Great Escape. The house was in very nice conditions. The kitchen(as many have mentioned) is very well stocked. The screened in porch area was great! That along with the sun deck offer great views of the beach and ocean sunsets! Our son slept on a twin air mattress in our bedroom so the grown-ups could stay up late and watch tv etc...just to note, it is a little tight with an air mattress in the bedroom....but nothing major! We would definitely recommend staying here!
We'll be back
My husband, our two girls, ages 6 and 3, and our big Labrador retriever had the best time at this beach house. The house was the perfect size for us. I was afraid we might be cramped, but the open floor plan was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Loved having a washer/dryer at the house. They've thought of everything, so you just get to relax! The beach was great, plenty of space to spread out and for our girls to play. The best part is the screened-in porch and the sun deck. We saw several amazing sunsets, and enjoyed our coffee out there each morning. I also emailed Teresa to get recommendations for some activities while we were there, and they were fantastic too. I can't say enough about the Cape area, this house, or this rental group! We'll be back for sure!

This was our 3rd stay at the Great Escape. The upgrades were a great improvement. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary during this stay.
My wife and I and my daughter and granddaughter stayed a week and found the accommodations perfect for us. The open floor plan, screen porch and deck with a wonderful view of sunsets make for a perfect beach getaway. My wife an I had stayed here last year and found the upgrades that have been made to really enhance an already nice beach house. Teresa was very helpful when we transferred from another of her rentals to the Great Escape last Saturday allowing us an early arrival for preserving some of our perishables.
Perfect Beach House
This was our second year staying in Great Escape for the month of February. We felt very fortunate to enjoy such a perfect beach house for an entire month. We did not want to leave once the month was up! The accommodations are just right for my parents, my husband and myself. We enjoyed the updated comforters on both beds. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything we needed for meal prep. We love the deck for taking in the view and the screen room is perfect when we wanted some shade. The new metal roof and screens give the house a fresh look. We walked the beach twice and day and always paused to take in the sunset, they are spectacular. This year, we enjoyed not only the morning walk for donuts, but also getting fish and shrimp frequently at the newly opened St Joe Shrimp and Seafood's second store, also at the end of the street. Teresa and Terri are always great to work with and quick to get back to you to answer any questions.
Great vacation rental,
Loved the little house - loved the location. You can walk to the shrimp company for steamed shrimp or fresh seafood for lunch or dinner, to the donut shop, ice cream shop and the trading post. There is not a bad thing to say about the house we rented, Great Escape, it has everything you need including beautiful sunsets. Teresa and Chris and Terri are great to work with and go above and beyond to make sure things are right in your rental. You will not be disappointed - fun little rental.
Perfect beach front location for our family
We loved Great Escape. It was perfect for our family of 4 and dog. The view was spectacular and it was convenient to everything. Looking forward to coming back in the future.
Great Escape is the perfect size and location for one or two couples or small family. It is clean and well furnished. The neighbors are friendly and helpful. Teresa, Chris and Terri are helpful, kind and want you to enjoy your vacation. The area is still amazing. Yes, there is damage but your visit will not be impacted - it is still the best vacation spot of all. The locals are working hard, Mother Nature is also. The hurricane is no reason to not visit. The hurricane is another reason to visit - you will be part of the rebuilding process and have fun doing it.
The best vacation escape is at Great Escape beach house!
Cape San Blas beaches are outstanding and the best way to visit them is by staying at Great Escape. My boyfriend and I have stayed at Great Escape before and really enjoyed returning for another stay. This place is wonderful, right on the beach and Teresa and Terri are the best host making sure everything is perfect at the beach house. We have stayed at several of Teresa‘s Beach homes over the years and will definitely continue to stay at them. They have everything you need to make your visit and vacation one in 1 million. Even though there is still quite a bit of recovery efforts and rebuilding happening around Cape San Blas and Port Saint Joe our vacation post hurricane Michael was still wonderful. We look forward to our next visit and to stay at Great Escape.
Perfect location, beautiful beach and pet friendly house!
What a great house in a perfect location...has it's own private boardwalk directly to the beach. Loved having the option to choose to watch sunsets from either the screened porch or the sundeck. Wouldn't change a thing, look forward to our next visit!
The GREAT Great Escape
The Great Escape is perfect in every way. The views from the screened in porch or the sun deck can't be beat. No detail has been overlooked to make it the perfect home away from home. This house has a hose on the boardwalk , an outdoor shower, and every kitchen item needed to cook your own meals (including a crockpot)! The location on the Cape can't be beat for a quick walk to grab morning donuts or evening ice cream! 2019 will be our 6th time staying in this great home and Teresa's Beach Homes help make reservations a breeze! They and their crew keep us coming back year after year!
Great Escape
This is a great place to stay on the cape! The sunrise/sunset are both amazing. I have stayed here at this Pet friendly Home twice and just made reservations for a third time. The house has everything you need to park your car for the week or is a great location if you want to get out and about!
Great House, Great Managment
This is a wonderful house for a couple! It is well updated, has a great layout and was super clean. Terri at Teresa's Beach Homes was wonderful to deal with, from the initial inquiry all the way through our stay. We would most definitely book this home again, and will be using Teresa's Beach Homes in the future.
Three years straight
This was our 3rd stay in the Great Escape. The views were amazing as usual. Ate breakfast outside every morning. We love this place and hope to be back next year. The 4 legged babies love it as well. Work continues in the area but it is a small inconvenience compared to the beauty of the cape. Can't wait till next year!!!!
Great week
We loved Great Escape. It was perfect for us and so close to the water. Sunsets were amazing and we look forward to returning.
It is a great escape from all the hassle of this busy world
If you want to truly unhook from the busy world for a while, this is the place for you.. The house is lovely with beautiful view of the beach. It is quiet, with only the sound of the gulf. We will certainly come back here again!
Views, sunset,direct beach access, cute little home, pet friendly, closed screen porch
The location is very good for families who want to just get away from everything. The beach is clean, even though it's pet friendly, we did not find any pet droppings on the beach. The house was clean and very welcoming. Booking was easy and the owners were great to! the screen back porch was wonderful not only for us, but for our dog. I would come back in the future but would absolutely have my Bug Spray. I'm from Tennessee and we don't have these little bugs that you can't even see. The NO-See-Ums I have never in my life experienced something so bad to me! my family got a bite or two but I was eaten up! I actually have scars from those little suckers!! my advice is to wear bug spray or cactus juice ( I learned about cactus juice at the post next door) wich BTW is wonderful and has everything you could imagine including food !! The experience was awesome relaxing and we had plenty of room for our family of 4 and little dog. parking was awesome! both cars were in a carport. The water and views and the beach are all we go for anyways. and it met all of our expectations! take your bicycles, its not far from the park. FYI you have to pay to get in, but the funds are for the park and to keep it clean and welcoming (very understanding) :)
Much needed rest...
Great Escape was absolutely lovely. Cozy, clean and spectacular views. This was our first year coming to the Cape during Thanksgiving (we have been coming in the summer for over 30 years) and I think I actually prefer it in November! Cool mornings and warm afternoons. We love that we can bring our dogs, because they are family too! Be sure to bring dog beds if you have a fur baby with you so they will have a comfy spot. Teresa's Beach Homes is a wonderful company to do business with. They are warm, friendly and prompt to respond to any questions you may have. I highly recommend them.
