This place was perfect for what we wanted! The pool was nice, plenty of space, walkable to the beach. It was missing a grill when we got there and we had purchased stuff to grill and the property manager quickly took care of the issue and brought us multiple grills. The maintenance man who brought the grill was amazing too, Ramon. He was so nice and accommodating and deserves twice whatever he is getting paid. The dish washer had a funky smell to it but we just hand washed everything! The surrounding area is so gorgeous, not too many people on the beach or anything. 10/10 would recommend anyone to stay here. The ping pong table downstairs was fun, the tower was gorgeous. The living room/ dining area open concept is perfect for a large group of people to all hang out. No complaints! Thanks for the great stay!

Thank you, Annie, for your detailed review. We’re pleased to hear the property suited your needs and that our team, especially Ramon, was able to accommodate you quickly with the grills. We appreciate your feedback about the dishwasher and will address it immediately. It’s great that you enjoyed the amenities and the beautiful surrounding area. We look forward to hosting you again

A group of friends came here for the opening weekend of scallop season. The house was exactly as described, and the pool was a wonderful treat after a long day of saltwater.

We had a group stay over Thanksgiving and the property worked out great. We were all comfortable with the bedrooms and enjoyed the easy access to the beach.
The description of the place is very accurate, my only two suggestions would be to stock the house with more essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, etc… (this is clearly communicated by the property, just a little inconvenient) and the grill listed in the description is a bit rusty and empty of gas.
Besides those nitpicks, we all had a great time and would recommend if looking to stay in Cape San Blas!

The house is well designed. The rooms were good sized, and the amount of light in the house is incredible. The kitchen is large and well stocked. Two refrigerators made life very easy for 13 guests.
The porches and balconies were fabulous. We spent a lot of time on them getting fresh air and visiting with family.
The pool was a lifesaver for the days we weren’t able to go to the beach.
The downside was that the elevator did not work when we arrived, but the property company was responsive to our needs.
Overall we had a great trip.

Beautiful home with plenty of room and a great small town feel! The back porch and pool area are perfect for family being able to spend time together, even when some want to swim and others don’t. Perfect for a large crowd!

The house is a great house. Spacious and roomy. There needs to be more utensils and the hot water heaters needs to be updated or changed. A lot of cold showers were taken. Maintenance had to be called due to fuses tripping while trying to cook. Overall a great vacation and a great house.

No beach access as stated in the listing.

- Posted: 11/22/2020

This property sits on Cape San Blas Rd and is part of the Piney Woods Subdivision.  The beach access for this subdivision is shared and a 5-7 minute walk from the property down Sandpiper Dr or a quick 30 second car ride.  For reference please look at the map of the property.

We enjoyed our stay at Big Chill! The house was clean and a great size/location to get to the beach easily. The hosts were responsive and came out within less than an hour to help us with one issue that came up. Fantastic response! We would definitely stay here again.

The big chill was beautiful and spacious for our large family. Loved the fact that it had a great sized pool and enough space for everyone to have their own area to relax. Few minor set backs as we were trying to be understanding of the hurricane repairs and updates that are still in progress. The pool area was trashed when we arrived but finally after 4 days someone came and cleaned the pool and picked up around the area. The backsplash (plastic sticker pieces) was falling down and basically touching the stove which caused us a little trouble while cooking. Notated multiple times to assure the maintenance orders were accounted for so we are hopeful they will address them soon. Overall we still enjoyed the home and the location was spectacular for the price point!

Very spacious!
The home was very spacious and well laid out to accommodate our large family and dogs. Love the fact there was a pool and the kids were able to utilize it often after I called daily to have it cleaned and filled. There are still some updates going on throughout the home and some minor issues that contain safety hazzards (called but in due time hope they get fixed). The location was great and perfectly in the middle of everything. We hope to visit again in the future but also hope to continue to see the improvements happen that were promised.

Big Chill.
We had two families, 13 people total. We enjoyed our staying, house is perfect plenty of room for all of us, privacy is excellent, even late at night you can still enjoy the pool and not bother any neighbors. Pristine staff were very friendly and helpful ( Thank you guys !!! ) WiFi signal not so good, house in some areas look like is still under construction or remodeling. But overall i will definitely will come back to this beautiful house. We had a wonderful time here!

Great getaway for a large group!!
The house was HUGE! The air hockey table is no longer there, but they have added 2 additional bathrooms on the ground floor level! We understand that the area is still recovering from the hurricane, so we understand the construction materials in the house, but made it feel a little off.

How far is the house from the beach access point?

Courtney G - Posted: 03/20/2023

Answer:

We have it listed at 1100 walking steps to the beach.  I would say that it takes roughly 6-8 minutes of a walk to get to the beach access from the house.
