We loved the house and the location and would definitely stay here again. The only very nit picky comments are that there were no hangers in the closets and no chairs for the table on the upper deck. But neither of these detracted from the overall experience.
Property Manager Response: We are pleased to hear Vacay-Zen was a good fit for you, and we appreciate your feedback. We hope to see you at the beach again soon; thank you for choosing 360 Blue!

We stayed here the week of November 7 through the 11th, it was an amazing week I think we got the best weather before it turned cold, mid 80s during the day 60s at night. The house is amazing, exactly as pictured on the website. Absolutely spotless and clean, you cannot get any closer to the ocean unless you were on a ship! I think it’s obvious from the photos that this is a reverse living, with several flights of stairs, so if that is a concern for anyone just be aware. The website does not give you very much detail on what is in the home, specifically the kitchen, so let me give you a few tips, there is a standard coffee maker, you will probably need to ask for coffee filters or bring your own, there was a coffee bean grinder, and a Mini French press, which I did not know was there, nice touch to have that. There is also a two slice toaster, which I did not see in any of the photos. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, cutlery, knives, even a full bar set up with different bar glasses and Cocktail accessories. They mention there is olive oil, salt and pepper available, however we did not find that, there are salt and pepper shakers but they were empty, so you may want to bring your own if you plan to cook. Also an FYI, the photos show a green egg type charcoal grill, that is no longer there there is a propane gas grill.
You won’t be disappointed, We were very comfortable, from beds, to the reclining leather couches, and plenty of seating outside on the patios. If you’re in at night time, they have every subscription on the TV that you could possibly want, so you will never be lacking for anything to watch, which I thought was amazingly generous.
Overall, we had a very quiet week, we almost had the beaches to ourselves, the water was warm, and we spent a lot of time walking up and down the beach and looking for shells. We had quite the show from the we balcony, we saw a sea turtle swimming by, porpoises/dolphins having a morning swim, tarpon jumping in the distance, and pelicans having a grand time diving for mackerel.
My husband played golf at the local course in Port Saint Joe, actually quite a pretty little course. People there were amazingly friendly as well. We did rent the bikes and the lounger chairs and umbrella from the website when they offered it, and I’m glad we did. We road our bikes up to bad mamma JAMA‘s I believe it was called, a little food truck at the very end of the Cape, amazingly good food.

Amazing ocean views! And by far, some of the best sunrise and sunset views we’ve seen along the gulf. Wonderful house, very clean, well-stocked kitchen, and comfortable beds. We couldn’t have asked for closer beach access or a more relaxing week to spend with our family.
Property Manager Response: We are delighted that Vacay-Zen was the perfect fit for your family's beach getaway, and we appreciate you sharing your experience. We hope to welcome you back to the Forgotten Coast soon!

Words can't describe our great experience staying at this property for a whole week.
From being right on the beach, to looking out over the ocean or the bay from every window or balcony, you can't ask for anything more to get away for a peaceful vacation. If you're a Shell-Hunter, then this is your place...they have so many on the beaches! The interior of the house is immaculate. The kitchen, which we used very well, is well equipped with modern equipment and all of the tools you need to have a great stay. Being right on the ocean is different from any place we've stayed, so bring your camera and catch the sunset off of third level balcony. We are already missing this place and can't wait to be here again!
Property Manager Response: We are thrilled Vacay-Zen was the perfect home for your beach vacation, and we hope you enjoy the sunset with us again soon. Thank you for being our guest!

Our family of 7 all agreed that our stay at Vacay-Zen was the best we’ve ever had. Cape San Blas is a hidden gem and we loved being so close to the beach and the privacy of the location. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the 3 full bathrooms were a luxury we don’t have at home. The staff was excellent and available quickly via text. We were already planning for next year before we left.
Property Manager Response: We are thrilled that Vacay-Zen was the perfect place for your family to enjoy the beach. It was a pleasure having you as our guest, and we're looking forward to your next visit to the Forgotten Coast. Thank you for choosing 360 Blue.

House was immaculate upon arrival. Everything as advertised and close as one can get to the water. I’d stay here again. Host was responsive upon arrival.

A relaxing vacation awaits you at Vacay-Zen, a 3-bedroom, 3-bath gulf-front home with spectacular views that can accommodate nine guests. Feel the stress of daily life melt away while sitting on one of the home’s expansive decks while taking in the sights and sounds of the Gulf.
The living area is located on the second floor. Here you’ll find a contemporary kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar with seating for two, and lovely bay views from the windows above the sink.
The stylish dining area is located adjacent to the kitchen. Here you’ll find a table that seats eight, along with impressive beach and water views from the windows that surround you.
The very well-appointed living room is located just off the dining area. It comes replete with a comfortable armchair and couch, as well as a flatscreen Smart TV. There is a bathroom with a walk-in shower just off the living room.
Access to an expansive deck is located just off the living area. It features several Adirondack chairs, a large table, and a propane grill, should you like to prepare your meals outside. Imagine sitting on the deck with your morning coffee while you enjoy the impressive views of the Gulf!
There is another deck on the first floor which is accessible from the home. Here you’ll find plenty of wicker seating, as well as a staircase that leads directly to the beach! (Please be advised that as of 9/14/22 the staircase has been severely damaged by a storm and, as a result, cannot be used to access the beach. Repairs cannot be scheduled until after sea turtle nesting season in order to comply with laws and ordinances in place to protect local wildlife.)
Guests can get some rest in one of three comfortable bedrooms situated on the first floor of the home:
There’s a king-sized bedroom that features a comfortable chair, closet space, access to the deck, and an en-suite bath with a walk-in shower.
The second king-bedroom on this level boasts a king-sized bed, a wall-mounted flatscreen TV, dresser, as well as access to the deck. This bedroom shares a hall bathroom with a shower-over-tub with the bunk room.
The bunk room on the first floor is ideal for the children in your group. Here you’ll find two twin-over-twin bunks with trundle.
For your convenience, this home has an outdoor shower and a washer and dryer.
This home welcomes up to 2 dogs with a non-refundable, $200 pet fee.
Due to the location of this home and it's close vicinity to the gulf of Mexico, the beach is constantly changing and shifting. At times, there may be very little or no sitting area on the beach due to erosion.
