This house is beautiful! We had 3 families in our traveling party, and each family had their own space. The kids loved the extra living room for watching tv and hanging out. The Beach is Beautiful and never crowded. Amazing views, Great outdoor sitting areas. And best of all, you can walk to the gas station and Beach planet. There is also bike and kayak rentals within walking distance.

We obviously love the Sea of Joy, since we have already booked it for next year. Seeing the picture on my right makes me sad I'm not there! It works well for our whole family ranging in age from 28-85!! It is so well stocked you could cook an entire Thanksgiving meal without bringing a single pan or dish.

Awesome week at Sea of Joy    Jul 01, 2022

review star

We had a great experience. Everything you could imagine was provided. 4 BRS and a bunk room for the girls. The common living area was huge and allowed for all of us to mingle without feeling cramped. Tastefully furnished. Kitchen was huge with separate bar area for drinks which included a frig and ice maker. The elevator came in handy for loading and unloading days. Right on the beach, no houses on either side made you feel you have the beach to yourself.

The house was exactly as described and very clean. We were looking for a house on the beach and away from the crowd, just what we found. The layout was thoughtful and very functional, the furnishings were in great shape, and everything was more than adequately stocked (especially the kitchen supplies/tools). Overall, it was a great stay.

Another Outstanding Beach Trip    Apr 01, 2022

review star

We arrived and were not disappointed. This was our second time at Sea of Joy and we were able to just relax and soak in all the beauty of the ocean and this lovely home. Our adult children and grandchildren joined us, so we had a full home but plenty of space for everyone. The home is well maintained, and help is just a text away. We highly recommend this home for those wanting a quiet place to rejuvenate body & spirit. This is a very special place. We plan to be back next year.

We stayed March 2022, with three families. The house has a great set up and accommodations. We love that the house is so close to the beach, and its proximity to the gas station and beach planet. The house has everything you need, beach gear, Great kitchen, and outside bathroom so you don't have to walk through the house with sandy feet.

We are a group of 4 couples who have vacationed together for over 30 years. This was the best place ever! Very well thought out. Everything we needed had been thought of in advance. Best vacation home we have stayed in, and we have been from the east coast to the west coast, The house, Cape San Blas and all the people we met there were great. Thanks to all that had a hand in making our vacation one to remember. Hope to return in the future!!

Spoiled by Sea of Joy    Sep 01, 2021

review star

I'm not sure how we'll ever be able to stay anywhere else on Cape San Blas. Sea of Joy is fabulous! The owners have thought of everything, from a well-stocked kitchen to a cabinet full of beach towels to a storage room stocked with chairs, umbrellas, and sand toys. Everything was clean and well-maintained; we could tell the owners, and the cleaners really work hard to keep it that way. We ate dinner on the screened porch every night so we could soak up the amazing sunsets. Can't wait to return!

Relaxation is easy in this beautiful home on the beach    Aug 01, 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sea of Joy. There was a bouquet of flowers and a personal note on the counter when we checked in. The amenities were just as Wendy had stated. The two laundry areas, two coffee makers, two mini-fridges, the ice maker, the beach chairs, and sand toys were so appreciated.

We were cancelled from our normal scheduled beach vacation in Santa Rosa Beach - we were able to reserve a week at Cape San Blas which turned out to be a great place to vacation. We will be making Cape San Blas our annual beach vacation spot from now on.

Thanksgiving at Sea of Joy    Nov 01, 2020

review star

This is the 10th year that our family has traveled somewhere for Thanksgiving. Sea of Joy is absolutely the most wonderful house we’ve ever rented. Everything inside the home is pristine, decor beautiful, views phenomenal and amenities over the top! This was truly a phenomenal experience! In my years of renting, we’ve never had this happen. Overall, our family agreed this has been our best vacation ever all due to staying at Sea of Joy. Highly recommend

Our family of 5 adults and 4 children had a wonderful time in this beautiful house. The second living room was great for the kids and their games. Two laundry rooms were a blessing! One of those places that you must see to believe how beautiful it is! Made reservations for next year! Due to Covid 19 situation, we ate all our meals in, and the kitchen was a pleasure to use. Love this place!

Sea of Joy March 2020    Mar 01, 2020

I can't even begin to describe what a wonderful respite Sea of Joy was for us during the beginning of the Covid19 outbreak. Though we couldn't be on the beach, we really didn't even miss it because the views from the house and wonderful porches are so spectacular. Sitting on the porches may be even better than actually sitting on the beach. This house is so well equipped. We cooked every meal, and only left the house once for a grocery run. Everything we needed was at our fingertips, and all of the drawers and cabinets were very well organized. The beds were also super comfortable. And the bath towels were so plush--my husband asked me to check the label so that we could order some for our own house! We've rented probably 30 beach houses over the past ten years, and this one is hands down the best! Our hearts were heavy from all that's going on in the world, but our spirits were lifted by the beautiful change in scenery, and the amazing views from Sea of Joy. We hope to return very soon!

My family stayed here over Thanksgiving for the week. It was a wonderful stay. Both adult kids and their husbands had king beds and private baths. A pack and play and a highchair were provided with made our stay easier with toddlers and babies. The home is just gorgeous with every detail thought of. Great kitchen to cook in with a million dollar view of the Gulf. The beds were so comfy we were looking of the tags so we could get one.

Stunning views, easy accessibility, luxuriously equipped. The unbelievable views include both the bay, as well as the white powder sand against shades of aqua gulf waters. These allow for awe-inspiring beginnings and endings each day. The location is fantastic as we had beach privacy, in addition to quick access to rentals, groceries, shopping, dining and worship. The Sea of Joy was so well equipped and managed that we wanted for NOTHING! We have been staying in beach rentals for over 40 years and have never encountered such a first-class accommodation that was not pretentious, but rather cozy, and homey and fun! The spacious, open floor plan allowed us to have plenty of space to ourselves, as well as plenty of room to gather all together...indoors, or out, screened in, or not. The elevator came in handy for those needed help hauling luggage, groceries or bodies! ;-) The equipment available for beach lounging and playing allows you to pack a bathing suit (not even a towel or a beach chair do you need), and head to the shore. We HIGHLY recommend the Sea of Joy on Cape San Blas!!
