September 2020: "This house met every need we had, from the comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, distance to pool and beach, it was all phenomenal. Brent was a joy to work with and kept in close communication. Unfortunately we didn’t get a lot of water time because of Hurricane Sally but with the big open living area, everyone had a great time playing games, eating, reading, TV - all together, which is what I love. There were tons of beach toys, chairs and an umbrella that we used at the pool for the one day we had (it had a post to insert it) One thing I always look for in a rental is enough seating - if you have enough beds for 10 people you need enough seating for that in the living room, dining table, and porch. The Craigs' place met all these needs and more. Thank you Brent!" -- W.W. (Florida Rentals) August 2020: "House was the perfect getaway for a family meet-up. Brent was very responsive and friendly. This rental will meet all your needs for a beach vacation. We enjoyed the bay and scalloping as well as the beach. A few storms during the week were welcomed as we stayed in and played games in the spacious 3rd floor living area. Mornings and evenings on the large outdoor deck are incredibly relaxing. We would book this house again in a heartbeat." -- S.H. (VRBO)
August 2020: "Absolutely phenomenal! Brent’s Coastal Cottage was an absolutely perfect place to stay for vacation. The kitchen is well stocked to cook at the home since there are not many restaurants on the Cape, however, there is an excellent seafood market about a mile from the house. The home is beautiful and clean. We used the elevator to send luggage/groceries up/down which was quite useful. The beach is literally a 2 minute easy walk including a boardwalk from the house. The views of the ocean from the balconies are spectacular. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Brent!" - S.R. (Florida Rentals)
August 2020: “What a fabulous getaway! The house is very close to both the beach and the ocean and the views from the porch are stunning. The neighbors were very pleasant and helpful. And Brent was exceedingly communicative and flexible with our travel plans. We loved every minute of our vacation there.” -- N.M. (AirBnB)
August 2020: "Beautiful home, quiet location, great ocean views! While it is not ocean front, even this "ocean front snob" did not feel like I missed a thing! The views are great from the top two floors, you can feel the expanse of the ocean and see/hear the waves! We had a consistent ocean breeze so that we never suffered from heat, even in August! The home layout is spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Appliances, TV, wireless all worked great. Beds and linens were comfortable, clean and in good condition. You are a short walk to a beautiful and sparsely populated beach! If you are worried about crowded beaches and Corona virus, this is the perfect retreat location for you! Your are literally a few steps from a super cute uncrowded pool! My daughters and I loved it! The subdivision has less than a dozen homes so it really feels like you have a private pool! The home is very close to a gift shop, seafood market, ice cream shop and an incredibly well stocked small town grocery store with very reasonable prices. Don't bother packing milk, beer, etc, just buy it when you get there. If your looking for exercise, there is a great bike/run path that runs along the road all the way to the State park at the end of the Cape. The State Park is a beautiful area and worth a days adventure walk. Last, but certainly not least, Brent (the owner) communicates wonderfully and is super responsive! Vacation rentals can always be a gamble, not with this place! (PS) I'm not the owner writing a review of my own house! We just had a wonderful time and we are glad to brag about this place!" -- B.B. (Florida Rentals)
June 2020: "This house was perfect for our stay at Cape San Blas! Everything was updated and modern. It was spacious enough for 10 and the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need for a week's stay at the beach! The views from the great room/kitchen are amazing!! The pool was convenient as was the short walk to the beautiful beach. Brent Craig is a gracious and responsive host. We loved this house and have already booked it for summer 2021!" -- C.B. (Florida Rentals)
June 2020: “Absolutely incredible! Cape San Blas is a very sleepy beach town, but it has exactly what you need for a good getaway. Brent’s cottage is directly across from the beach, and the beach is pristine. Thecottage has the most incredible views, and it’s centrally located to all of the good stuff (Weber’s donuts, The Tradin Post, etc.). Highly recommend.” -- T.B. (AirBnB)
May 2020: "We loved our stay at Craigs’ Coastal Cottage in Cape San Blas. The house was BEAUTIFUL, fully updated, great layout, amazing view, and right across the street from the pool. The short walk to the beach was easy and convenient. We had an amazing vacation!" - B.C. (Florida Rentals).
March 2020: "An amazing house that is super close to the beach. There is plenty of room and space to enjoy everyone's company. We loved our stay and would 100% do it again!" -- S.W. (AirBnB)
February 2020: "We have stayed on The Cape several times, and this is by far the best house we have stayed in. The kitchen is well stocked, the beds are very comfy, and the views are stunning!! Having an elevator to help with unpacking process was a major plus as well. The beach is a short minute or 2 walk, and is beyond beautiful.. Brent is such a good host, you definitely will never regret renting this house. We have already booked our stay for next year!! Thanks Brent, you all are awesome!!" - J.L. (ECBYO)
October 2019: "Craig’s Coastal Cottage is a beautiful, clean and welcoming home where you can enjoy a relaxing vacation at one of the most beautiful locations on the Gulf. The home is spacious and very well appointed. Brent is a gracious host. We loved our stay!" -- M.B. (AirBnb) September 2019: “If you are staying on the Cape, you could not ask for a better place to stay than Brent's home. The home is large, clean, and well kept. The pool is directly across the street and beach access is visible from the driveway. The decks offer unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico. We were able to watch the sunset from the deck each evening. The decks are well furnished and offer additional living and dining space. I really enjoyed waking up in the morning and having a cup of coffee while looking at the Gulf. Brent quickly responded to all questions that I had. Check in and out were a breeze. Do not hesitate to book this place!” -- T.M. (AirBnB).
September 2019: "The beach was amazing, not crowded at all. If you are looking for a great quiet getaway with the family this is the place to go. Amazing and beautiful house." -- M.J. (VRBO).
August 2019: “Look no further- this house has it all. Clean, spacious, and great location. The home offers a restful retreat after a day at the beach. Gorgeous ocean views from the back porches. Our group enjoyed cooking dinners in the wonderful kitchen. We hope to stay here again on the future.” -- S.O. (AirBnb)
July 2019: "BEST. VACAY. EVER. House was perfect for our family; beach was beautiful and spacious. We now consider ourselves “Cape San Blas folks”. Definitely will be a yearly trip from now on! And we wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else except Brent’s house!!!" -- D.R. (AirBnB)
July 2019: "This home is exactly as advertised - absolutely modern and beautiful, exceptionally clean, and the beds are so comfortable! The location is perfect - we used the community pool daily and the beach is an quick walk down the boardwalk. We saw sea turtle nests, walked down to the old abandoned shrimp boat (the Donna Kay) and looked for shells. We absolutely loved Cape San Blas and the Craig home was the perfect place for relaxing after our adventures." -- M.F. (VRBO)
July 2019: "We stayed at Craig’s Coastal Cottage the week of July 4th and had an amazing time. The house was everything we could have asked for and the nicest we have stayed at. The home has everything you could want inside, plus a pool directly across the street, a VERY short walk to the beach and a driveway where you can park your boat (for those of us that take theirs down). Great views of the gulf! Cape San Blas, Port St Joe, Mexico Beach and the forgotten coast are returning. While not everything is back [from Hurricane Michael] there are plenty of restaurants and other amenities available. The beaches and water are as amazing as they have ever been. Take advantage of it. Support their economy and have a great vacation. Brent was fantastic to rent from and delivered on everything. I will rent from him again!" -- R.D. (Florida Rentals).
June 2019: "Perfect home in the perfect location on Cape San Blas!!! Clean, comfortable, gorgeous home!" -- P.G. (AirBnB). May 2019: “My family and I had such a wonderful week at Brent's cottage! The house was beautiful, the views from both balconies were amazing, it was a short/quick walk to the beach, and my kids loved that the pool was right beside the house. We also loved that the beach wasn't super crowded with visitors, and it felt like we had our own bit of paradise. Brent was super accommodating and quick to respond with our questions and concerns. Couldn't ask for a better host and rental. We definitely recommend, and plan on returning in years to come!” -- A.D. (AirBnb)
May 2019: “A beautiful home with an amazing view. Excellent.” -- B.W. (AirBnb)
April 2019: "This was an incredible beach house on a gorgeous beach. More people should discover the Cape (or should I keep it my secret?)!" -- E.F. (AirBnb).
March 2019: "Brent’s place was simply amazing. The decor was modern and trendy. The views from the top balcony were amazing and the beach was literally a one minute walk away. His space has more than enough places for our family to sit and bond, and they had wireless speakers throughout the place. This place exceeded all of my expectations and then some! I’d definitely book it again!" -- J.M. (AirBnb) March 2019: "We booked this property for Spring Break, and we were absolutely amazed at how perfect the house is for three families. The location is convenient, providing easy access to the beach, The Trading Post, and the state park. I can’t say enough about how nice the home is — from the layout, to the professionally decorated rooms. We spent our evenings together on the third floor (kitchen, living area, and a wonderful deck overlooking the gulf). As mentioned in previous posts, Brent is available at a moment’s notice should you have questions or need anything. We will definitely book this property again soon. Thanks for sharing this wonderful home with our family!!!"-- R.G. (VRBO) March 2019: "Brent is an incredibly responsive, helpful host from booking to check-out. The place is beautiful, has outstanding views despite not being right on the beach, and is such a short walk away from the sand and water. It is well-decorated, well-kept, and a beautiful, relaxing place to stay. The area offers a lot of interesting things to do in nearby towns, good food, and places to walk around. We had a wonderful stay!" -- T.M. (AirBnb).
January 2019: “Absolutely 1st class all the way! The views, unforgettable! The house, incredible! Brent has thought of everything and is ready at a moments notice to take care of any questions!”-- R.D. (AirBnb).
December 2018: "This is a wonderful house owned by a wonderful couple. You will not find lovelier hosts or a more beautifully kept home. Views from every room, large open porches, steps away from the white sand and a 1 minute drive to the local retailers. We are so sad to leave this special place. Thank you to the Craig’s for opening their beautiful home to us during our stay. We will be back!"-- T.H. (AirBnb).
December 2018: "Brent it’s truly an amazing host, he went out of his way to help me stay at his home for a long time so I could help local hurricane Michael victims. He’s truly someone that cares about the community. The house is beautiful, probably one of the nicest Airbnb’s that I have ever stayed at. He’s a great super host, always there if you need him. Highly recommended."-- B.T. (AirBnB)
November 2018 (after Hurricane Michael): "This house is gorgeous!!!! The decks are incredible and the views are ah-mazing! VERY short walk to the beach. Everything you can want in a beach house! Brent was very responsive and a great host." -- J.T. (AirBnB)
