The property was gorgeous with terrific views. We did not have the best weather but made the most of it. The owners were very personable and made sure we had everything we needed. They even shared tips on places to go, things to do and places to eat.

I’ve been visiting and vacationing in SW Florida for over 20 years. This was my first visit and stay in the Panhandle and Cape San Blas. We stayed at A Tropical Breeze for 5 nights with immediate family (parent, siblings, children, and grandchildren). The beach house was so spacious and we all had our own bedroom and private bathrooms. The elevator was especially helpful for moving luggage in and out and for my elderly mother to have easy access to go outdoors. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the appliances and dishware and cookware that you will need for making your own meals. There is also a gas grill for cooking outside. I would definitely recommend staying at a Tropical Breeze for your next family vacation. The house sits right on the beach (with a short walk over the dunes to get to it). They have plenty of outdoor chairs for use by the guests and an enclosed lanai on both floors with plenty of seating for relaxation and visiting. The views of the sunset are pretty spectacular also! There is plenty of indoor activities for cooler or rainy days with DVD’s, board games and books. We made such special memories with our family during our stay and look forward to coming back for another visit in the future.

The well stocked kitchen is the best we have ever had and we rent homes yearly for over 30 years! We only ate at Coneheads, Longbills and The Seafood Grill ( over in Apalachicola) all were delicious.

We're glad to hear you liked the house and understand that it is an expensive rental but for the quality, location, and size I'm not sure that you can find a much better deal.

Extremely nicely furnished and the kitchen items were labeled and well appointed. The elevator was most helpful when we were moving the luggage. You can tell this property is well loved. It was a pleasure staying here and will definitely rent it again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is equipped with everything you could need - and it is extremely spacious and comfortable. The short walk to the beach is ideal and we spent hours soaking in the sun and sand. Would return without hesitation.

The property is amazing!
The property is amazing! The house is right on the beach with tons of space for the family to spread out. We enjoyed morning coffee on the big screened in porch, heading over the dune to hunt for shells along the beach, building sand castles with the kids, and walking down to Cone Heads for ice cream, fried fish and piña coladas. The master bed rooms were very comfortable, with beautiful views every morning. The elevator was also surprisingly handy for getting bags up and down. To top it off, Roni, the homeowner, was super responsive and accommodating. All in all, it was a wonderful experience for our entire family group. Thanks again Roni!

Probably the best experience we’ve had with a beach rental! The house is perfectly set up for two families but can easily hold a 3rd. It has two masters, both with breathless views. It was our first visit to Cape San Blas. It felt very exclusive. Love that you can have a fire on the beach. If you prefer less crowds and what felt like a private beach this is your place. The owner Roni & management company were unbelievable. We will definitely be back!

Three families (5 adults with 4 kids under 7) loved this house. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, cookware, glasses. Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Best of all the house is steps from the beach. Loved it.

What a great trip to the Cape and A Tropical Breeze. This house is much space and it has everything you need. So clean it feels as if it is brand new. The beach was perfect and the State Park, just steps from the house, was so much fun to explore. Roni was such a great host, quick to answer any question offered so much advice on fishing and on things to do in the area. We will be back!

I LOVED this house! Great location (walking distance to Coneheads and the new restaurant). There are condos nearby but it was fun seeing all the dogs and you still have a private area behind the house. It was perfect. Also the kitchen was amazing. Well stocked. I recently stayed somewhere that didn’t even have a salt shaker. This is not that place.  The essentials (and more) are waiting for you. And the owner was very accessible and helpful. We will definitely look to book this property again.

We loved our stay at beautiful Cape San Blas, and A Tropical Dream was perfect for our family - clean, comfortable and exactly as pictured! Roni made everything so easy, and was wonderfully accessible and informative for all my many questions. CSB is truly a hidden gem, and we hope to return again!

Wonderful Christmas Vacation
This was our first time spending Christmas away from home and we could not have had a better experience. My 4 children loved the bunk room and all the books and board games. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked for us to prepare a Christmas dinner. My husband and I enjoyed breathtaking sunsets from the balcony. I could not recommend this property more. What an amazing way to close out 2020!

Loved our house!
Our house was so lovely and convenient! All was comfortable and the kitchen was extremely well stocked. The sunsets from the porches were so beautiful and even though the water was cold, we could not have picked a better place to stay for a get-away. Cape San Blas is just beautiful in November and very few people there. We found some great restaurants with outside seating and places to get the best take out. We got bikes to ride, pickle courts and wonderful shells on the beach. The only drawback was we were not prepared for the flies on the beach that time of year. If you are walking in the water, they don't bother you but some days it was difficult to sit on the beach. Other than that, I would recommend this house and Cape San Blas!

The House was Fantastic
The house was fantastic. Had plenty of cookware and dinnerware for a large group of people and had everything you need for the cook masters in your group. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The owners and property managers were very friendly and available for any assistance. Would definitely recommend this rental to friends.

We have been coming to the Cape for many years. This was the best equipped kitchen I have seen! Loved the layout of kitchen to family area. And really.... I don't think I can stay anywhere else now that doesn't have an elevator!!! The owners even left super soft blankets to snuggle in while watching the very nice BIG TV!! Great Vacation!!!

Book with confidence!
You couldn’t ask for a better place to escape to! Cape San Blas is really special and ATB has everything you needed! Views were incredible, beach accessories on point, and easy process all around. If you’re looking for a quiet get a way, this is a great place. Only a handful of restaurants, a couple stores, and miles of beautiful gulf white sand. House had basics for first few days (TP, paper towels, etc) but make sure to bring extra if your staying a while. Book with confidence!

We had a great time at A Tropical Breeze! The home was beautiful and every detail was taken care of. The kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of space throughout the house. While there are several steps to climb to get to the beach, it is well worth it when you get there! We basically had the beach to ourselves the entire week. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely Fabulous!
I can't rave enough about this wonderful beach house and the awesome location! There were seven of us and we stayed for a week. We loved it so much! - There are tables and many chairs on both decks with nice, clean cushions. The screened-in deck is a safe place for our little one, and the upper deck has a great view (it even has hummingbird feeders). - The spacious bedrooms all have their own bathrooms. The beds were all very comfortable. The master bathroom is incredible -- a huge walk-in shower, a jacuzzi, a large vanity with two sinks, lots of room and lots of sunlight. - The living room has plenty of comfortable seating, gas logs and a big TV. - The dining area has an enormous table! We really put that to good use. - The kitchen looks out over the whole room and out all the windows for wonderful views while cooking. The kitchen is amazingly well stocked with quality equipment -- probably the best stocked kitchen we've ever seen at the Cape, and we've been renting houses there for over 20 years. We like to buy fresh seafood and cook there at the house all week and this is the perfect place for that. - And the elevator... what can I say. No more carrying suitcases and groceries up stairs! Yes! - Outside: plenty of parking space, shower with hot water, a nice Weber gas grill, logs for a beach fire, chairs and picnic table. - A nice boardwalk to the awesome beach, which you begin to feel is your own private beach. - The owner contacted us directly and made sure everything was perfect. Thank you, Roni! - We fell in love with A Tropical Breeze and look forward to staying there again!

A wonderful place.
What a great property for a family get away! We thoroughly enjoyed our time together at A Tropical Breeze. This beachfront house was well appointed, comfortable, well maintained and the elevator was a ‘must’ for one member of our family. Sunset views from the top deck were breathtaking! We loved the quiet beach with plenty of open space for the grands to play. And, I managed to catch sight of a dolphin playing in the surf who jumped completely out of the water several times! Our entire family loved our visit to Cape San Blas and A Tropical Breeze was the perfect place for us to make great memories!
