Living the Swell Life is what we all hope to achieve. Nothing gets you closer to achieving that level of happiness than a beach vacation with family and friends. Cape San Blas is an ideal destination for sand, sun, and fun. On the southern end of the peninsula is a beachfront neighborhood, The Boardwalk. A quiet neighborhood featuring a beachfront community pool with winding boardwalks and lots of deck space. The beach located just beyond the pool is a wide beach with plenty of space to spread out, and an area for the kids to play. It is also a pet-friendly beach and welcomes leashed dogs. A Swell Life is a pet-friendly property as well, so no need to leave the family pet at home.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath single-family home is a comfortable spot to call home base. Located just a short walk from the beach, you also have views of St. Joseph Bay in the opposite direction. There is a great open deck on the front of the house with a dining table and umbrella. Under the house, there is covered parking with a fish cleaning area and an enclosed outdoor shower. Once inside the property, the living area is an open space on the first floor with sliding glass doors and windows allowing natural sunlight to pour in. There are also two bedrooms on the first floor with a master suite on the top floor.

A Swell Life is not only tucked in between the gulf and the bay but is also located very close to Salinas Park Bayside where adventure awaits. Gorgeous boardwalk trails are winding along the water’s edge of St. Joseph Bay. The children will enjoy the excitement of the playground and so much fun for the rest of your group too with pickleball courts, a sand volleyball court, a fire pit, restrooms & showers, and a kayak launch at the end of the boardwalk. With the loggerhead bike trail stretching the length of the peninsula, you can easily jump on just beyond The Boardwalk neighborhood and ride your bikes to the park or the Scallop Republic, a local pub with craft beers and live music.

How about that for a Swell Life?

We had a great time!
We had a perfect Spring Break vacation! The house was great, beds were comfy, nice new towels and a great porch! Everything was clean and the layout was great! We loved the outdoor shower too!! Easy walk to the beautiful beach and pool! We can’t wait to come back, we had never been to the area and we fell in love with it! Great restaurants nearby and wonderful shops in Port St. Joe! We brought our pup and we loved that there was a gate on the deck to keep them safe. We rented bikes, beach chairs and a wagon. We rode our bikes to play pickle ball everyday and to check out the nature boardwalk, which is gorgeous! You won’t regret renting this vacation home!!

I rated the value as 4 stars only because I did not pay the price it now rents for since I booked before the home was sold. If I paid the current booking price I would have rated it lower. There are things we had issues with in the home. A couple of them were the washing machine that would not spin out clothes but instead would run for several cycles until we finally gave up and had to line dry our clothes enough to then put them in the dryer. Another thing was the kitchen faucet handle is broken off and makes it more difficult to use. The kitchen is not well equipped. There are a lot of certain items but then it is missing important items. We did appreciate that someone from Pristine brought over the 11x13 pan and mixing bowls so we did not have to go buy some. That was nice. It is also frustrating that neither sliding door works. One other suggestion for Pristine is to make sure to include the keycode for the laundry/storage area down below because that was not provided to us so we could not access that area until someone brought dishes to us and then she helped figure out the code to give to us. That was frustrating not having that code to begin with because we couldn't locate the laundry.

Great location and having the pool so close to the beach was awesome. Little things like a fresh coat of paint would make a huge difference to update it.

Thanks for your feedback.  This property was just purchased prior to your stay so I believe the new owner has plans for it but is just working on scheduling things for open dates (there aren't many currently).

Great stay!
This property is in a great location within easy walking distance to beach and pool. Pool was newly renovated and very nice. Beach is of course awesome…not crowded and nice. The bay is always fun for kayaking and fishing especially from the state park or kayak put-in just down the road. Park for kids was new and just down the street. Property is well kept and owner communicated well. Dryer being downstairs was both a blessing (easy return from beach) and a curse (have to go outside and back in to fetch laundry). Handmade gift was a nice touch and appreciated!

Gene was a generous host and sent helpful emails that made our arrival easy. The home was beautiful and very clean with everything we needed. We got plenty of exercise with the stairs as we have with most houses we've stayed in on the Cape. The walk to the beach view was not bad. We were happy there was a boardwalk to get us to the beach. Angel Fish Cove was a lovely comfortable home. I would love to stay again.

Angel Fish Stay
Magnificent home ,we truly enjoyed our stay. Gene was very pleasant to meet . The house was close to the beach and easily accessible walking on boardwalk to ocean about 1/4 mile from house. Any closer and we would have been right on beach! Delightful beach sand and seashells near the waves crashing into the beach. Beach was really secluded on our stay for the month of February. We practically had the beach to ourselves most of the time. We will return if we get the opportunity. The Kingsize bed in master bedroom was very comfortable and Internet was great while we were there.

We want to come back!
We had a great stay at this house. We spent hours walking with our dog on the beach and enjoyed coming back to this nicely-equipped house. We enjoyed being at the "front end" of the Cape so we could have the options of Port St. Joe as well as Eastpoint for fish markets (I recommend 13 Mile in Eastpoint as the best of the markets in the area). The Internet connection was strong enough that both of us could still work during the day when we needed to. The kitchen had the equipment we needed; we were glad we had brought a bunch of spices and condiments. If you don't want to drink wine out of a glass tumbler, bring your own wine glasses. We just used the tumblers but probably went through more wine than we would have otherwise. :-) We were also glad to have brought an HDMI cable so we could stream from our laptop to the TV. We appreciated the good bagless vacuum so we could keep the floor less gritty from our beach trips. Thanks for sharing your home with us and we look forward to coming back!

Unexpected getaway
Our son and his wife invited us to join them during their vacation at another property close by. We found this house a little more than a month before our trip and booked it hoping that more of our family could join us. It ended up just being me, my husband, and our two dogs but we truly enjoyed all the space that we had. It was quiet and peaceful during our Monday-Friday stay. The beach is a short walk away with boardwalk access from the street. We enjoyed long daily walks and playing with our dogs. Although we did not use the neighborhood pool, it was very nice. This was our first visit to Cape San Blas but it will not be our last.

Annual family beach vacay!
Our family always looks forward to our beach vacation and this year it did not disappoint. Upon arrival to the house, we noted how clean the house was! Very comfy! Even though we would have like to have been further north on the cape, this location had its advantages. Number one being that it's much closer to Port St Joe so when we needed things from town we were able to go to piggly wiggly or dg instead of the trading post where prices were significantly higher. All in all it was a wonderful trip!

AngelFish Cove...again!
Once again we had an entirely enjoyable stay at Angel Fish Cove on Cape San Blas! Communications with Gene were easy and we had no problem with check-in. The accommodations were great, as usual. The location was great as well. The pool and its being so close to the house was enjoyed by all. Our only regrets were that the Gulf waters might’ve been a little clearer… Pretty murky this time. But overall a relaxing & refreshing week. We’ll soon begin planning our next vacation for Port Saint Joe!

This property is in a good location, very short walk to the beach and the bay is across the street. The pool is small but never mote then a few people in it at s time. Everything you can think of you will need is in the kitchen, and it’s well furnished. By far the cleanest beach VRBO listing we have stayed in and the bed was so comfy. The Cape is so beautiful it will take your breath away. Very pet friendly home. Thanks for a lovely stay, we will be back.

Wonderful week on the Cape!
We had a very enjoyable week at Angel Fish Cove! Just left today and were sad to see the week end. Very roomy and comfortable house- Air conditioner worked wonderfully for this time of year. We had a couple of double red flag days and enjoyed using the community pool during this time. We’ve rented many places in the area and in Perdido Key and the owner of Angel Fish, Gene BeHage, was the absolute best at communicating with us- very impressed with him! Highly recommend this rental if you don’t mind not being right on the beach (but not too far). We loved it!

Great place to stay
In many ways Angel's Fish Cove is a typical rental, BUT, what sets it apart is how well it's stocked. Soft toilet paper with extra rolls under the sink, paper towels, napkins, coffee, a working grill... It's a quiet neighborhood, a short walk to the beach, the bike path is across the street and it's walking distance to a good restaurant, Salinas Park and the new boardwalk to view the bay. The beach has shallow water (about 3 feet deep for at least 10 yards), which makes it great for kids to swim in. Dog folks: bring a flashlight because it's a dark neighborhood, which makes it perfect to sit out on the deck and star gaze. All in all, it's a very comfortable, homey feeling rental.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation stay at Angel Fish Cove! What a quiet, peaceful place to relax and enjoy being together. The house is beautiful and well equipped with everything that we needed. It is just a short walk to the pool and the beach, and we also enjoyed a couple of days at St. Joseph State Park. The shell nightlight that Gene had waiting for us will always remind us of this trip and was so sweet! We hope to go back again next year! Kenny and Sue Spencer McCalla, AL P.S. The star gazing is AMAZING!!

Nice home for the week
Our family enjoyed the home for the week! Just a short walk to pool and beach. Loved the surrounding area. Next time I think I will invest in a permit to drive out vehicle onto the beach. Even though it’s not that far it’s hard to carry everything there and back for a family. Nice quiet neighborhood area.

Angel Fish Cove
Gene is great to work with. He was always available to offer help or advice on points of interest in the Cape area. We absolutely loved that this home is pet friendly and is a very short walk to the pool or beach. This home also features an outdoor shower with hot and cold water which was heavenly!

Even in the midst of a hurricane, the community there is incredible. I love that neighbors actually stopped to talk and chat and I felt truly safe. Sitting on the balcony at night drinking hot tea and listening to the waves crashing was such a welcomed distraction from hurricane relief work during the day. The stars are so bright and beautiful, I could have stayed outside for hours ! The inside is very comfortable and the master bed mattress is very very comfortable. Thank you for everything

Angel Fish Cove Vacay
We loved our stay at Angel Fish Cove. The house was perfect for the four of us. It was well furnished and equipped. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the mornings and drinks there in the evenings. The pool and the beach were a short walk away. We will be back next year.

This home is well kept and is in the perfect location. It has pool access , beach access and is close to the place we rent boats for scalloping. We have stayed here before and will stay again . Gene is always easy to deal with and very attentive to our needs. Restaurants are close by and Angle Fish Cove provides a grill if you want to just hang around the house. The property offers it all and at a very fair price. We will see you next year Gene.

Perfect, perfect, perfect!
First of all, Gene was the most accommodating host I have ever had. Even before we were completely booked, he rescheduled to a different week for us as we had some schedule conflicts at home. He remained in continuous contact, and was very kind. We arrived at the house and were very impressed with the way the home was decorated, furnished, and well kept. Gene and Linda kept the house as their “home,” no junky couches or mattresses. The kitchen has everything you need to cook EVERYTHING. They even give you a full bottle of dish soap, sponge and a dishwasher pod. Bring dishwasher soap if you plan to use it more than once. Linens and beach towels were a plenty. Covered parking for up to two cars, easily enough parking for five cars. A beautiful deck with a nice table and umbrella. They have dip nets, a wagon, beach chairs, an awesome umbrella, kids toys, a THROW NET!, a couple of coolers for your crab catches and more. It takes 5 minutes to walk to the pool, and 5 minutes further down the same boardwalk, you’ll have feet in the gulf. Beautiful beaches and dunes, and characteristic to the cape, very uncrowded. My 6 year old and I caught 14 blue crabs in one hour one night and brought them home for a lovely meal, and my wife was so surprised. Caught Redfish, catfish, and blacktip shark between the beach and some other areas in port saint joe. Rented a pontoon and spent a day in the bay. This home is perfectly located for adventures and restaurants on the cape as well as Indian Pass. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Angel Fish Cove, will be booking again!

Great choice for a family beach vacation!!
First off, we loved Cape San Blas and the surrounding area. This is truly a beach vacation spot in that there is little else but the beach here, which was exactly what we were after. Its very chill and quiet. The teal water was beautiful and and there were some waves for the kids to play in and plenty of shells to collect. If you get burned or need a break from all the sun, Port St.Joe is a charming little neighboring town with a historic main street offering many restaurants, cool antique stores and even an art gallery we were lucky enough to take a free workshop in!!! Appalachicola is awesome!! Its also a smaller town close by rich in history, local attractions (museums and fantastic eateries, esp. The chocolate/coffee shop and Up The Creek restaurant). There are also many lovely historic homes in the neighborhood to admire. Angel Fish provided a very fun and comfortable stay with cute, beach-y furnishings and wi-fi. The kitchen was much more accommodating than I anticipated (I just wish there was a mixing bowl). There are plenty of utensils, spices, etc. The beds were very comfortable and again, all the linens were plentiful and very nice. I appreciated the washer and dryer since we have a very large family and avoiding laundry is impossible, even on vacay. We received a cool welcoming gift and the owner was very responsive and helpful with any questions we had throughout our stay. Very happy with our relaxing beach time here and hoping for a repeat next year!!

Great Getaway!
My wife and I have spent the last three winters in Angel Fish Cove. It is our home-away-from-home. We obviously love it. It is a short walk from the house to the beach. There is a heated community pool that is a great place to hang out any day, but particularly when it is a little cooler and windier on the beach. The neighborhood is quiet, and it is an easy drive into Port St. Joe and Apalachicola. Both the full time residents and renters are friendly and welcoming. A wraparound deck on the second floor with an umbrella table is a delightful place to have any meal of the day, morning coffee or evening cocktails. And speaking of meals, if you like fresh seafood, there are a number of places where you can buy great fish and shrimp, a real treat for us northerners! With the master bedroom upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs, the layout makes for a comfortable place to have guests while maintaining personal privacy. Gene and Linda, owners of the house, are wonderful hosts and very accommodating.

We spent spring break week w 3 adults and two teenagers in the property. 3min Walk to the beach, great beach quality and very few people even during spring break. Great deck, open floor plan and master bedroom upstairs worked very well for us. Dog friendly community. Owner very friendly and responsive.

We decided to spend the end of the year holidays away from home, so we booked Angel Fish Cove to be our home away from home for few days.

Great vacation home!
Our family really enjoyed our stay at Angel Fish Cove! It's a perfect vacation home for us, an d we were delighted that we were able to bring our dog with us as well. The house was very clean, and furnished well. The kitchen was fully stocked, which made it much more comfortable to stay in and cook for each meal! We only made one trip to eat lunch in Port St. Joe, out of our five day trip. The beach is just a short walk down the Boardwalk, and the wagon provided by the homeowners made it super easy to get all of our stuff from the house to the beach each day. The pool was also very nice! Our 3 year old son loved the pool, so we spent a lot of time there. Unfortunately, Hurricane Irma had just devastated many parts of Florida the same week that we planned our trip, but luckily, Cape San Blas was mostly unaffected. So, that being said, there weren't many people on the beach while we were there. It felt like we had our own private get-away! We'll definitely stay in this home again.

Great vacation home!
We really enjoyed our family's stay at Angel Fish Cove. Considering that we just missed the devastation of hurricane Irma, which recently swept through the nearby area, we picked a great weekend to stay in Cape San Blas. The beach was nearly deserted and we felt like we were on our own private island at times! The description of the house was just as described. It was fully stocked with everything that we could have needed for the week. We brought so much stuff with us that ended up being available at the home, that we'll know to pack lighter next time we visit this house. The home was very clean, quite roomy, and very comfortable. The house is walking distance to the beach, and it was super close to the pool, which was very clean and relaxing. Our 3 year old son loved the pool and rode in the wagon, provided by the home owners, to the pool each day. It was one of the highlights of his day! It is also pet friendly, which was great! The homeowners are very responsive and stay in touch with you when needed. That helped make the trip amazing. My husband and I agree that this house is perfect for our family and we will definitely return to Angel Fish Cove!

We took our kids and grand-kids here for our 2017 family vacation. Everyone agreed this was the best family vacation yet.

I recommend this home to anyone looking for a beautiful, relaxing place to stay.

Clean, spacious dog friendly beach house!
We thoroughly enjoyed Angel Fish Cove. The house is super clean and well spaced. My husband and I loved the master and bath upstairs and our daughter loved the twin beds downstairs. We used the extra bedroom for our closet and our dogs loved the cool tile floor! Outside in the carport is a washer and dryer and beach toys and chairs for use. There is an outside shower which is handy to wash off from the beach and to wash off our dogs. We love this beach and it's a quick walk to the boardwalk onto the beach. I would highly recommend Angel Fish Cove!! We would love to come back!

Super Relaxing!
My family and I had a very relaxing time and enjoyed our vacation very much at the Angel Fish. My favorite part of staying at the Angel Fish was the pet friendliness. We are in the process of training our puppy to be a therapy dog and this vacation spot was perfect! The house was super easy to have a pet in, the neighborhood was full of friendly people of all ages for my puppy to interact with, and the along with the beach was extremely pet friendly and an easy walk. The pool was also great! FYI, I loved that the restrooms were at the pool, which made it easier to walk to and from the beach versus going back to the house! I was also pleasantly surprised with the extra refrigerator (even though we didn't use it) in the laundry area. Next time I will make plans to use it! The beach chairs and cart made our beach exprience so much easier! The closet in the hallway area held a nice supply of books, of which I read two, and games as well. The bedroom downstairs also had games. My teens enjoyed playing with the sand castle toys on the beach (I would not have thought to bring them for teens:). I am so glad you had them there. Another thing I really enjoyed was the comforter on the master bed. It was so cozy and the perfect weight! Safety; I felt completely safe walking my puppy early in the morning as well as late at night. I can't say that for everywhere I've ever vacationed. This was one of the most relaxing vacations I've ever been on. The only thing I would suggest is some more stainless steel cookware, maybe 2 six inch round cake pans, and a mixer. But then that's just a personal preference and I know everyone isn't into cooking on vacation as I am. If you have mobility issues, you do need to know that this is a beach house, therefore, steps are part of the deal. Not a problem for us, but I could see how it could be for others. Also, the mosquitoes don't play around! They are serious about biting every chance they get! Make sure you pack something to repel them and keep them off of you and your pet! One more thing, the internet and cable worked wonderfully and we had no connection problems. We also have Verizon cell phone service and had no problems with it. We brought our own Kayaks. There was a perfect spot for them in the parking area under the house. We only left one day and went to eat in Port Saint Joe and grocery shop at the Piggly Wiggly. Other than that, we stayed the entire time. It was great! We will definitely be back!

A Real Nice Time
We were "tickled pink" with the house. Everything was nicely decorated and orderly. The beds were very comfy as was the furniture. Be sure to bring your own blow dryer along with extra trash bags, dishwashing soap, laundry detergent, and toilet paper if you are staying several days. We loved the table which displayed the shells along with their names. The walk to the beach isn't far for adults but is a bit of a trek with small children. We found it easier to get to the beach by turning right and going through the pool area rather than turning left and up the stairs. Our grandchildren enjoyed the pool as much as they did going to the beach. We were glad to have the use of the cart and other items available in the laundry room. We also appreciate the lovely welcome gift that was left for us. I would love to return next year.

Fabulous property
We rented out the house for 5 days for my family and loved it. It isn't on the beach but very close with the boardwalk and it was nice to have pool access as well. The beach was beautiful and not busy at all. We have young kids and they loved it! The beach is shallow for a little bit so they were able to get in and play and we didn't have to worry about them. House was very nice as well! It was also right across the street from the kayak and bike rental place which was very handy. We had a great time and I highly recommend this house!

Exceeded expectations!
Last year the home we stayed in was nice but the beds were VERY uncomfortable and the a/c kept freezing up. Not this home! The beds and pillows were beyond comfortable and of course the a/c worked well. This home was just a short walk to the beach/pool and another big plus was it had anything you or the kids would need for the beach! We were very impressed with this home and will be booking it again if it's available.

Little Gem
Angel Fish Cove provides a wonderful getaway on Cape San Blas. The house is comfortable and well appointed. Gene, our host, made sure everything was in good shape, clean and ensured we wanted for nothing. My wife and I have stayed at a number of different places on the Cape and we found Angel Fish to have the most comfortable beds and living area. It has a great deck where we enjoyed morning coffee and evening cocktails. The neighborhood is quiet and provides the amenity of a large swimming pool and pool deck area. A perfect spot to sit when it is a little too cold or windy to go down to the beach, which is only a short walk away. (Don't miss the stars at night. You only have to walk to the boardwalk to get a great view.) We also love the south end of the Cape with its big beach, calmer winds and good shelling opportunities. We liked Angel Fish Cove so much, we hope to make it our winter home in the future.

Better than I ever imagined
My family, along with our Labradoodle, chose Angel Fish Cove as our vacation spot and we couldn't have made a better choice. The house was wonderful. The community pool was great and the beach was spectacular. The area was just what me and my family needed to spend quality time together. We explored and found the City of Port St Joe which is only about 20 minutes away.....which has great seafood restaurants and shopping. We can't wait to return to Angel Fish Cove and we will be bringing our dog back as well.

Very enjoyable and quiet vacation
This is an excellent vacation rental. The house is very clean and has all the amenities you could ask for and is very nicely appointed for a rental house. The handmade gift was nice and a thoughtful touch. The area is very peaceful and the beach is beautiful and dog friendly. The bay is close by and we kayaked and snorkeled for scallops almost every day - delicious! On clear nights I have only seen stars like this in the mountains. Virtually zero light pollution and you can see the Milky Way so clearly. Somehow we managed to "misplace" the house keys on the beach within hours of arriving and Gene quickly had an extra set for us. If you are an outdoor enthusiast and like adventurous days, or just want to chill on the beach followed by peaceful relaxing evenings you will not be disappointed. Our dog had a blast on the beach and in the surf and also gives it two paws up:) I highly recommend this rental. Thanks Gene and Linda!

Better Than You Would Expect
Everything about this property and the area are better than we expected. I don't think we've ever had a vacation where that was really true! From the nicer furniture to the well-equipped kitchen, the very clean home has a non-rental feel to it. Super low number of bugs for a Florida home as well. We had issues with the wi-fi our first night and after a quick email via the network, the owner sent several self-fixes followed by an offer to have a computer guy or Mediacom come out. Thankfully, the issue was resolved simply and quickly without hassle - again, a first for any vacation we've ever taken. The neighborhood is safe, all other patrons were decent and there were no obnoxious parties or other hassles. Pretty amazing stuff all the way around! If quiet, open beaches and well-kept neighborhoods are your intent, try a stay here. You simply won't regret it.

This was our first visit this area. Angel Fish Cove exceeded our expectations. The furnishings are very comfortable, the kitchen was the best stocked I've encountered (we've rented 10+ vacation homes over the years) and the home was very clean. The Cape San Blas area is very quite and beautiful with lots of trees and sand dunes. We all enjoyed the pool and most times had it all to our selves. This is a great home and will definitely visit again!

Our first time to Cape San Blas and we loved it! Brought our four boys to fish for the week and had a blast. The house was perfect for us. Very comfortable, open - cathedral ceiling for family room helping us not feel overcrowded when all 6 of us where eating dinner/watching tv. Needed extra sheets for pull out and reached out to Gene and Linda who had them at our front door waiting for us before days end. The beds were super comfortable, bathrooms very clean, and kitchen spacious and well equipped. Loved the neighborhood the house was in too. Easy access to beach, pool and other amenities. We look forward to coming back soon.
