Location was fantastic! The beach, sunsets, home, were all wonderful. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed for the week.
Our only complaint was that the screens on the doors were broken. It wasn’t really a problem because they sent over someone to fix it the next day.
We had an absolutely perfect week. Just sad we had to leave.

Great house and great location!

Isolation & comfort. The only problem we had was riding motorcycles at night we passed the first road by the seafood shop and went to the second road. We got 2 motorcycles stuck in the deep sand but were able to push them out. We got a friendly visit from 2 deputy sheriffs following all the ruckus. We appreciated all the help they offered. We really liked the Trading Post. Good coffee and conversation. The people there were all so friendly.

The proximity to the beach and shrimp
place can’t be beat. We loved how easy it was to build bonfires, fish, and enjoy the scenery. The house is comfortable. Adding some board games for families would be awesome. Thank you!

Perfect location!! I can't express that enough, will stay there again... Only complaint is the king size mattress, felt like there was a huge lump in the middle. That needs to be checked out
Did I say it was the perfect location!

This was a beautiful house with an amazing location! The washer/dryer and stove is updated unlike the photos. I wish they outside furniture was better quality like the neighbors, but other than that it was extremely satisfying and enjoyable.

Location, location and location of this house is the winner. Having the ability to WALK to get fresh seafood, coffee, homemade doughnuts Yes!!!! Then the 2 minute walk from the porch to the water. Absolutely beautiful

Dreamsicle was a perfect spot for my family to get away! We loved the location and the house was cute and cozy. Easy check in and we had zero problems while there. Our only complaint would be the furniture on the deck - it was rusty and uncomfortable!
Lindsey S.Aug 2020
The location is great and beds are comfy!! We have been coming to this area for almost 10 years. You can not beat the location! It’s a great house for a small family trip. For the rental price the house really needs some TLC, especially the porch being covered and or screened and some outside furniture. The appliances also need to be replaced. The Location is a few steps off the beach which is perfect!

Very nice house with an awesome location right on the beach. Beach is not crowded at all- perfect for COVID 19 isolation. Couple of things that were frustrating- grill is unusable. If you plan to grill- bring your own. This one is dirty- so dirty, it is beyond the point of coming back. All the appliances are very old. One of the burners on the stove is not working. And refrigerator has rust all over and does not make ice either. There are 2 umbrellas in the outside shower, however there are no other beach amenities- make sure bring your own chairs, etc. Otherwise, a very nice house.

It's directly on the beach. I mean you can't get better views and beach access. Cape San Blas/Port St. Joe are the sleepier part of Florida so nightlife, bars, and restaurants are few but good eating can be had. The house was clean but applianceswere very dated and rust was showing. Sliding doors stuck constantly and the outdoor shower had to be cleaned out because all the rusted and useless beach gear that was stored in it. Otherwise a cheap place to stay and enjoy the slow pace of life on the Cape.
Thank you for your review, Chris! We appreciate the time taken to provide your feedback and have followed up with the local property caretaker. In addition to deep cleaning by our housekeeping staff, the homeowner has updated several appliances throughout the home and have replaced the outdoor furnishings. We appreciate the opportunity to improve and will continue to make efforts to ensure our guests have a pleasurable time. We hope to host you again in the future!

My family absolutely loved everything about this home. Very comfortable. Stepped off the deck onto the beach and within steps sitting under an umbrella. I can’t wait to come again. Very convenient 5 min walk to next door for ice cream or the local market where they had pizzas,subs, etc.... very very nice.

This home was situated directly on the beach with beautiful gulf views! Accommodations was very clean, stocked with everything you need for a fantastic vacation. Cape San Blas is very ZEN, low key, definitely a place to unwind. We look forward to visiting the Dreamsicle Home again very soon!!

Dreamsicle is an idea location with a wonderful view but falls short of perfect or even great due to some mechanical issues and dated kitchen supplies. If you enjoy staying in and cooking your meals I'm not sure this is the place for you, also the cleanliness left a little to be desired. It's was our second time to stay here, the first being much better than the second.

We apologize sincerely for the cleanliness concerns that you encountered - please know that our guest services line is available 24/7 to assist you should any questions or concerns arise. The homeowner has made recent updates to the appliances and furnishings in an effort to facilitate a more enjoyable guest experience. We hope to have the opportunity to host you, and impress you, in the future!

Really enjoyed our stay. Home is lovely and location perfect!
Michael P.Oct 2019
This was our best vacation spot yet on the beach. We did not have much phone signal so we did not have work bothering us at all!!! The beach was not crowded at all. The house was great and was only steps from the beach. The inside of house was laid out wonderfully, loved the open concept of the kitchen and living area and dining area. We will for sure try to book the same house again in the future.

We had a great stay at Dreamsicle. Very nice house, great location. We had a small issue that we got ahold of Vacasa about, at it was resolved very quickly. We were very satisfied!
Renay M.Aug 2019
My family loved that we could walk out the back door and be on the beach. The house was nice and well kept.
Mark m.Jul 2019
We have stayed at the Cape for 20 years and have stayed at Dreamscicle many times and have always loved it! We were worried about coming after the storm but to our pleasant surprise everything that we ever did or went was up and going! The home looked like it had never seen a storm! The new massive deck was so nice to sit on and watch the water!
Thank You for another wonderful time!
Tammy C.Mar 2018
We had a wonderful time at Dreamsicle in April. The house was perfect and the staff was very helpful!
Tamela H.Oct 2017
Our family was very pleased with the accommodations Dreamsicle at The Cape offered. This will definitely be a return spot for our family.We enjoyed every minute we spent from the beautiful views, sunsets, campfires & cookouts on the beach. The house had adaquete ammenities and was very clean & comfortable.
