Bayside Cottage on Cape San Blas with Bay and Gulf Access



Scallop Cove #4, Sunshine Daydream, overlooks St. Joseph Bay on serene Cape San Blas. Wake up to spectacular sunrises and stroll the beach for stunning sunsets. Enjoy a quiet, romantic dinner on your screened porch or open deck, serving freshly caught fish or scallops. Kayak or canoe the waters of the Bay, hike in the State Park, walk the beach, or just relax and read a book - Cape San Blas has it all. This cottage is one of 6. If you have a large party, let us know and we can check other rentals for you. There is boardwalk access to the beach for relaxing in the sun or watching the porpoises as they play in the surf. The fishing is great in the area.
There is a pier outside your door going out to the bay and parking for 2 cars and a boat trailer (20 ft. or less) at the cottage. The public boat ramp is about five miles away at the State Park. You can use the pier to get on and off your boat, but you cannot tie up to the pier overnight.  You can anchor just off the pier.  The water is shallow and protected by Pig Island.  
Situated on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay, surrounded by miles of protected habitat, white sandy beaches (voted the best beach in the US in 2002 by Dr. Beach), and emerald green waters, Cape San Blas looks like a curled finger of land jutting into the water and provides the protective barrier that keeps our surf so quiet and gentle. There are several parks and historic sites. It's not unusual to spot deer, fox, soaring eagles, osprey, sea turtles, or even a family of black bears. St. Joseph State Park is a 2500 acre wildlife refuge offering ten miles of uninhabited beach and bay shores and a boat ramp.
Maximum occupancy is 5 people, this is a strict limitation.  Names and ages of all occupants shall be recorded on the rental agreement.  Currently, there is a queen bed in the north bedroom and a queen/twin bunk in the south bedroom.
This property is dog-friendly (no other type of pets).  Fee for dogs are $75 for first one and $50 for second.  There is a two dog limit.
Rental rates are based on two people.  Additional people are $3 per day per person.
The cleaning fee is $175 and there is a 12% sales and lodging tax on all rents and fees.
There is a $200 refundable security deposit which will be refunded within 14 days after check-out, provided there is no damage, or unauthorized people or pets.
The pier is not permitted for mooring. You can anchor just off of it.  The water is shallow and protected by Pig Island.
Cancellation Policy:
If cancelled greater than 30 days from check-in, all payments will be refunded less $150 per booked week plus tax. Reservation payments will NOT be refunded on cancellations made less than forty five (45) days in advance of the reservation unless the unit is re-rented for the same rental payment and time period originally reserved. Even if re-rented, $150.00 plus tax will be retained for a service charge. In the event of a mandatory hurricane evacuation, a prorate refund on the base rent will be made to the renter for days not stayed. No other weather related refunds will be made. Trip insurance is strongly advised.

We love Scallop Cove! The cottage was immaculate and cozy. Easy access to the beach and the Scallop Cove market is the best! - (Jun 2024 - VRBO)


We had an amazing visit to Cape San Blas. The weather was great. Our villa was perfect...spotless and very well appointed. Needed for nothing. Hope to be returning very soon. - (May 2024 - VRBO)


This was our first time staying on the bay as we normally stay Oceanside. Everything about the home was perfect. My daughter had a blast playing on the dock, catching crabs, and whatever else she could find. The only downside I will say is the bunkbed was very difficult to get into because the letter was not accessible on it. Very minor inconvenience for an overall amazing place to stay. - (Apr 2024 - VRBO)
