Peaceful, unspoiled, and uncrowded— a holiday at Sweet Nancy’s Bay House is like staying in your own private nature preserve. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has the feel of a cozy and rustic cabin in the leafy green tropical forest, yet with tranquil bay waters right outside your door. It’s the best of both worlds and a true treat for nature lovers.

Enter Sweet Nancy’s up a flight of stairs and onto the open front porch. There’s a gas grill here and a dining table that’s perfect for grilling up your fresh catch of the day. The front facade of Sweet Nancy’s also has a screened-in porch and a small laundry area. Inside, the open-concept floor plan includes an updated kitchen with a convenient peninsula bar, a dining table with room for everyone, and a cozy living space with a flatscreen television that’s ideal for family movie nights with a bowl of popcorn.

Sweet Nancy’s Bay House has two bedrooms and sleeps six people.

First Bedroom- Main Floor
This room has a king-sized bed and french doors that leads out to the back deck and the bay beyond. A full bathroom with a soaking tub and a separate step-in shower can be accessed from the hallway.

Second Bedroom- Main Floor
Located at the front of the home, this bedroom features a bunk bed with a full-sized bed on the bottom and a twin-sized bed on the top. Another bed in this room is twin-sized, allowing four people to sleep here. This room also has a full en suite bathroom.

Chances are, you’ll find you spend most of your time at Sweet Nancy’s on the spacious back deck. Completely screened in and outfitted with comfy furniture, you’ll linger here often. It’s an ideal spot to slip off your flip flops, feel the gentle offshore breezes, listen to the eclectic coastal birdsong, savor a glass of wine, enjoy a good book, or simply relax on the swinging day bed and catch a catnap.

A screen door off the back deck will take you outside to a sandy path in the seagrass. Follow the path down to a weathered wood boardwalk that leads out to a dock in the bay. The unique ecosystem of the bay is like walking into your own private aquarium. Discover starfish, sand dollars, or scallops in the tides. Watch the entertaining pelicans dive for their dinner. Hop in a kayak and keep an eye out for stingrays and sea turtles. Grab your fishing pole and catch some sea trout, kingfish, or flounder for dinner.

When you want to head out and experience the local flavor, some of the area’s best restaurants are only a short drive away. All the shops and restaurants offer that classic Cape San Blas old-school charm. Escape to the natural beauty of Sweet Nancy’s Bay House and experience the unspoiled bliss of a holiday on the Cape. Please note* this home is located on marsh land which is wild and natural. Guests should expect to encounter the natural elements such as insects and other wildlife that live nearby. We recommend all guests come prepared with bug spray and water shoes for best enjoyment. The boardwalk is weathered and rustic. A new raised boardwalk is coming in the near future. *

We are happy welcome up to 2 dogs for an additional non-refundable pet fee of $200.

Joe : Sweet Nancy's Bay House is the best kept secret on the Cape. Our home away from home. Joe & Jo

Property Manager Response: We are thrilled Sweet Nancy's is the perfect oasis for your beach getaway and hope you revisit us soon. Thank you for being our guest!

Jill : The house and property are such a great throw back to old Florida. It was our 3rd stay in this house. I will say that the kitchen stove needs replacing badly. It could also use a large skillet. A place to vacation that is out of the way needs to be better equipped for cooking family meals.

Property Manager Response: We are delighted Sweet Nancy's Bay House was the perfect location for your beach getaway. Your feedback has been shared with our team, and we hope to welcome you back to the Forgotten Coast soon.

Airbnb g: Great place to stay if you want a secluded, quite vacation. Sunrise and sunset can be seen from the screened in porch (and the master). High tide on the bay revealed lots of fun sea creatures! House itself had everything we needed! Very comfortable

Property Manager Response: We are delighted you were able to relax and unwind during your vacation and appreciate you sharing your experience. We hope to share our community with you again soon; thank you for being our guest!

Airbnb g: We had a great vacation here. The dock by the bay was a great place to take in the sunrise. The house is private and the screened porch on the back is spacious and a great place to relax.

Property Manager Response: Hey Lisa. We are thrilled you enjoyed staying at Sweet Nancy's Bay House and appreciate you sharing your experience. We hope you can catch a sunrise on the dock with us again soon; thank you for choosing 360 Blue by Natural Retreats!

Amber : The service provided by 360 Blue were top-notch! They even came and took care of trash service to and from the curb! The rental was clean and organized when we arrived and required little of us when it was time to check out.

Airbnb g: This home is amazing! The bay is RIGHT THERE and we spent hours walking and fishing the shallow waters. Bring some water shoes and be ready to be amazed at all that there is alive in the waters. The swing and the porch are everything that all of the other reviews say they are. If there had been a ceiling fan out there I may have never walked inside! The beaches are close by and a quick drive away. Salinas Park has the walkway that you need to visit and the beach access there is wonderful. Drive down to St. Joseph's State Park. The bay side there and the ocean side are both amazing! I will always check to see if this home is available in the future when we visit Cape San Blas - it is that amazing of a location! Just know - you are looking for the Natural Retreats business office - the house is BEHIND those offices - down a secluded drive... you are really in your own world and it is a good world to be in!

Property Manager Response: We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and appreciate you allowing us to share our community. We hope you can explore more of the Forgotten Coast soon; thank you for sharing your experience!

Jack : We loved the beautiful site and view of bay. The privacy Sweet Nancy's bayhouse offered was also a huge plus for us.

Airbnb g: This was our first time staying in Cape San Blas and reserving through Natural Retreats. Everything went smoothly, from reserving our house, to checking in and checking out. Natural Retreats also set us up with kayak rentals which also went very well (except for the weather). If you want peace and quite, Sweet Nancy’s Bay House is the place. It’s set back in the woods with an awesome view of the bay and only minutes away from the beaches. The place is clean and well kept. There’s not much of a yard, but a short walk down the dock you have a bay filled with wild life. You can walk hundreds of yards out on a sandy bottom in ankle to knee deep water. We walked up on small stingrays and also seen a huge sea turtle while kayaking on the bay. If you like the outdoors I highly recommend Sweet Nancy Bay House!

Property Manager Response: Hi Danny. Thanks for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. We're so pleased that you had an exceptional experience at Sweet Nancy's Bay House, and it would be our pleasure to host your next visit to Cape San Blas again soon!

Danny : We really loved the location, set back in the woods on the bay, it was like being home in northern WI. This was our first time in Cape San Blas and we liked how quiet it was, no big condo units and not a lot of people!! The place was clean and well maintained. Any issues we had were handled immediately. Thanks again for a memorable stay!! We will be back in the future!!

Loretta : The team brought by a hotspot without being asked. That was awesome

Airbnb g: Incredible Bay views, very private, quiet, yet easily accessible to everything in the Cape San Blas and Port St. Joe area. Easy keyless entry. Great Gulf easy access just a few blocks down the road. We had glorious Gulf sunsets both nights with the entire beach to ourselves.

Property Manager Response: Thanks for your review, Michael. We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us in Cape San Blas, and we look forward to having you back again soon!

Airbnb g: This was a relaxing and beautiful spot on the bay. Close to the beaches and was a quiet and peaceful location. We spent a lot of time on the back screened porch and on the dock. Just what we needed and can’t wait to be back again in the future. We will recommend this place to friends.

Property Manager Response: Hi Robin. We appreciate your review, and we're pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at Sweet Nancy's Bay House. Thank you for being our guest, and we look forward to having you back in the future.

Airbnb g: This is a beautiful and peaceful house. the driveway has a canopy of palm trees. the bay is amazing. The land creatures are as abundant as the water ones. I met a bobcat, my son had a close encounter with an Eastern king snake and we have beautiful pictures of an American Bald Eagle. we will be back. The home was clean, cozy and relaxing. I was sad to leave to go home. make sure you look up and down. everything around you is something to see and experience.

Property Manager Response: Hi Amie. We're delighted that you found Sweet Nancy's Bay House clean, cozy and serene. Thank you for being our guests, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

David : we loved the place! however there was no address showing 1143 on cape san blas road. also a little gravel or crushed oyster shells would go a long way on that road! e

Kyle : The house was great and we had a relaxing vacation! First time staying bayside and it was different, but amazing at the same time. Some improvements: the driveway was VERY bumpy and when filled with water, it’s like driving through a lake. If we had brought our car, we aren’t sure if we would’ve made it! The back screen door needs a handle on the outside to pull it shut - it lets bugs in. There were lots of tv channels, but only the basic cable channels worked. We weren’t there to watch tv, but those little things can help a little. We were also told mid-week not to drink the water because of a reset to the system - and then told we were on a well system and not to worry... Otherwise, we liked the house and the communication by text. Checkin and checkout was easy and we will definitely consider coming back and will recommend it to friends.
