Become immersed in the untouched beauty of Cape San Blas at this charming 2-bedroom beach cottage, nestled on more than an acre of waterfront property along St. Joseph Bay with oaks, pines and palmettos lining the shores.

Formerly "Cardinal's Cottage", Salt Therapy is a newly renovated from top to bottom. Set upon a raised platform, the cottage welcomes guests through a private, wrap-around deck with new lounge furniture and a glass, four-seat patio table. Sip coffee in the morning to the sound of herons and piping plovers, or fire up the propane grill for dinners with spectacular sunsets. After a day on the water, take advantage of an enclosed outdoor shower, located on the side of the home.

As you enter, a cheerful kitchen area and living room greet you, married by an open floor plan with light streaming through picture windows. In the living area, a comfy sectional sofa faces a hardwood coffee table and flat-screen TV, offering ample space to lounge. The updated kitchen features all-new appliances, a stainless steel sink, four-seat dining table and granite prep counter, re-purposed from a hardwood dresser. The cottage features hand-crafted, whimsical light fixtures throughout, each created from a re-purposed object.

Through a short hallway are two bedrooms, both styled in nautical decor with vintage artwork. The primary has a queen-sized bed, twin nightstands and space to hang clothes. The second bedroom has a full over full bunk bed, a large picture window, and a washer and dryer -- the ultimate convenience for families.

A full bath lies just outside the bedrooms, featuring tiled floors, a hardwood sink and spacious, walk-in shower. Throughout the home, you’ll enjoy air conditioning and heating, new hardwood floors and new paint, creating a cheerful ambience with modern comforts.

Outside, you’ll find the tranquil atmosphere of the bay, with St. Joseph steps from your door, easily accessible from a community boardwalk. Stroll along the beach in search of starfish and sea grass, spend a lazy afternoon kayaking on the bay’s tranquil waters, or watch spectacular sunsets over the water from the comfort of your West-facing deck. Within a short drive are wildlife preserves, birdwatching sites and national forests, allowing you to explore the varied, natural beauty of Cape San Blas.

For a night “out,” you’ll find some of the area’s best restaurants within short drive, each offering fresh seafood and local charm. Our team of Cape San Blas locals can give you their favorite recommendations.

However you choose to experience Cape San Blas, Salt Therapy is an ideal homebase for guests who want front-row access to the water and modern amenities without sacrificing authentic cottage charm.

We are happy to welcome up to 2 dogs at this home with a non-refundable pet fee of $200.

Beginning in July 2022, the Cape San Blas properties will be managed by our 360 Blue Team. This Florida based team also manages our Emerald Coast luxury vacation rentals.

Airbnb g: Waterfront location tucked away against the bay at this historic landmark area was a great getaway. Well appointed and easy access for water sports and cycling rides on the paved trail nearby. I’d stay again if we venture to the area.

Scott : Nice, private, well equipped cottage. Tastefully decorated with lovely artwork. The hvac is a bit loud when it kicks on if you are a light sleeper. Otherwise a really peaceful stay on the bay.

Donna : Salt Therapy was the perfect rental for our family of 3. The view of the bay was amazing and the rental was well stocked with plenty of towels and kitchen needs. The living area of the rental stayed very hot and not well cooled by the one vent in the area. The air continually ran and the bedrooms were cool but not the kitchen and living area. We were already in the area where we stayed a few days and it would have been nice to be able to get in the rental prior to 5pm (that is the latest check in time I have ever experienced from an Airbnb).
