Saved our vacation!    Jun 08, 2019



McCosh is a lovely house in a great location. Terri, the property manager, reached out to me after seeing that my vacation rental cancelled on me at the very last minute due to not having repairs completed post-hurricane and we are so glad that she did! There are two large and very spacious decks from which to enjoy views of the gulf. The home itself is right on the water and it was just a few steps from our door to our spot on the sand. One of the things I loved about the house was the half bath on the ground floor level. It made trips to the bathroom from the beach quick and easy. The kids really enjoyed the pool and I appreciated the fact that I could see the pool from my kitchen window and the deck on the rear of the house that actually overlooked the pool. The back deck was also a great spot to watch the sunrise over the bay in the mornings. Large windows and lots of glass doors let in lots of natural light as well as the spectacular views. The mattresses are brand new and very firm. We brought memory foam toppers from home because we like softer beds. One thing to note is that there are quite a few stairs and they are tiled. Just something to keep in mind if you're traveling companion has mobility issues. Overall we loved the house and would recommend it wholeheartedly!

Love me “my” cape    May 04, 2019



This is our third or fourth time staying at McCosh. I love the location, being across the street from Scallop Cove, we can walk if we need food or bait, etc. The house is very comfortable and the views are amazing! Although it was sad to see what Michael did to the dunes, it sure was an easy walk to the beach. I have been coming to the cape for at least ten years and I always rent from Teresa and Terri. They are very knowledgeable and their service is excellent! I love that they require a smaller down payment when booking and that their prices are all inclusive. Very irritating when some companies charge a bedding fee, a cleaning fee, etc. And I think they’re prices might actually be less than the other rental companies for comparable houses (hope they don’t notice that comment

Ken

We will be back    Apr 06, 2019



Beautiful home. Well furnished. convenient location. Easy access to Scallop Cove c-store and bait shop. Couldn't ask for more.

Relaxing Stay!    Mar 09, 2019



Once again, we had a wonderful time in Cape San Blas. We have rented with Teresa’s Beach homes before but this was our first stay at McCosh. McCosh is a very beautiful, well appointed home directly on the beach with striking views from the front facing the gulf side and the back facing the pool area and the bay. The large windows & back deck offered us the morning sunrises while the front of the house has spectacular views of the gulf and huge decks on each level to relax on to watch the incredible sunsets ( Cape sunsets are AMAZING).. The home is spacious, updated, organized, clean and very open. The kitchen arrangement was perfect and we very much enjoyed cooking dinner every night and then retreating to the deck to watch the sun go down. I also want to note that the floor plan was nice. The 2nd level actually has the bedrooms whereas the 3rd level is the main living area with the living room and kitchen so you can have the best views from the upper deck. Myself, my husband and our two dogs enjoyed this home and the wonderful service that Teresas Beach Homes offers very much. Thank you!

Judith

So happy we did this...    Mar 02, 2019



We returned to this little piece of heaven the first week of March, a little nervous about what we might find. We have stayed at McCosh several times and love the location on the Cape, the cozy circle of 6 homes sharing a pool, the immediate beach access and of course, the home itself. With just the two of us and our beach-loving dog being able to step outside, walk 10 feet and be on sand is just about the most perfect situation imaginable. The house is kept to immaculate standards, has everything we need for a week (or a month) and plenty of space to spread out and relax. The decks are spacious with magical views of the gulf from one side, the bay from the other. Aside from minor paint bruises, McCosh escaped serious damage from Michael. The view from the ground is quite changed because the dune is gone (for now) and you can see the water directly from the parking area under the house. Mother Nature will fix that in her own time but meanwhile there is something spectacular and oh, so special about that wide open vista.

Wonderful gulf front home    Jan 05, 2019



We were skeptical about coming after the hurricane in October, not knowing what kind of condition this home would be, what if any restaurants would be open etc. We were so happy with McCosh Beach Home, the views were awesome, inside had everything beyond our expectations, and we were able to bring our small dogs. We also had plenty of options for eating out even though we enjoyed staying in for our evening meals so we wouldn’t miss those amazing sunsets. We were there January and February. I certainly enjoyed the pool, relaxing and reading and the privacy fence blocked the wind on those cooler days. Can’t say enough about the beach, my husband surf fished and we had several delicious meals from the whiting he caught. We were able to see the sunrises from the street side of the house and breathtaking sunsets from the gulf side. Well, needless to say, we are booked again for January and February 2020. Hope you enjoy this home as much as we did.

Had a Great Time    Apr 21, 2018



Stayed a week from 4/21/2018. Perfect place - clean, roomy, breezy, beautiful view, white sand beach, bike rental across the road, terrific location for starting local explorations, close enough to PSJ for shopping, house hunting etc. Lovely area. Found a great Realtor Eli Duarte at Coastal Realty Group just down the road. If only the fish liked our bait better...

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Hey Bart, Glad you enjoyed the house! Next time you're in check out Scallop Cove Bait and Tackle. They seem to be helping our guests catch some pretty awesome fish. There's also a few charter companies that will come out to the beach and help the group fish as well! People seem to have a lot of fun with them! Hope to see you back soon.

Mccosh Beach    Nov 04, 2017



Have stayed at the Cape many times and this is the first house we have repeated a stay. Love the location, the easy access to the pool, the easy access to the beach and the house is very nice and comfortable. We also love working with Teresa and Terri. They really take the time to answer any questions and I love how their price is all inclusive. I refuse to believe ok with a company now who has a booking price plus four or five extra fees. I also think Teresa’s Besch Homes have the best prices.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Karen, we're so happy to have you back year after year and so excited to have a second generation start the tradition of booking with us. It was so nice talking with your son the other day.

Great house    Apr 01, 2017



My family and I loved McCosh. The teenagers enjoyed the pool and being close to the store. They went daily and got an ice cream. The house was very clean and the views from the covered decks was spectacular. We will definitely be going back to this house,

Karen

Beautiful home & location, awesome rental company    Aug 01, 2016





McCosh is hands-down the nicest home we've rented. Beautifully decorated, well-stocked kitchen, the owners spared no expense with the appliances, furnishings, and decor. Tile and granite everywhere. Views are amazing, and the deck furniture is awesome. The location is quiet, and the house has a private marked walkway to the beach (we had no issues with anyone else using the walkway). The community pools are well-maintained and beautiful. The location on the beach is low-density, and although all the homes around us were rented the beach was uncrowded and serene. This is definitely the place to go to get away from it all!

Fantastic!    Jul 01, 2016



We've been to Cape San Blas many times and love it there. This is our first time staying in McCosh Beach and we hope to go back. It was a great house with all that our family of 5 needed to have a fantastic week. We usually stay further down on The Cape, but really liked the location of this house. Even being there the week of July 4th the beach was not near as crowded as some other spots that we walked by during our daily treks down the beach. Plus, having the Scallop Cove within walking distance was really nice - we were able to walk over for the occasional needed item or an ice cream cone.

Exactly what I wanted....    Jun 01, 2016




I had never been to Cape San Blas before and it was exactly what I was looking for. I really wanted to rent a beach house at a place that wasn't crowded with condos and strip malls and that is certainly the case here. The house itself is well-furnished and I can't think of anything that we were lacking. Furthermore, it was very clean. Really enjoyed sitting in the chairs on the upper deck and watching the sunsets. The beach itself was not overly crowded and we spent multiple days simply relaxing there. The outdoor shower is a great touch that keeps you from tracking beach sand into the house. We cooked ourselves most of the week but we had very good meals at the Sandy Bucket and Provisions (in PSJ). We also ate at Coneheads during the Tropical Storm which was an experience (food was good, roofing not so much). Bottom line, my family had a very good time and our guests loved it. As for the arrangements with Teresa both in booking the property and then on arrival, it was easy. Would definitely recommend and will likely book again.

Bob, Thank you for your wonderful review! I'm glad you had a great week despite it starting off with the TS. I am so glad that your family enjoyed McCosh. I look forward to hearing from you in the future. -Terri

Very Nice Time!    May 01, 2016




We had a wonderful time here. Teresa was wonderful to work with. I called and let her know what I was looking for and she delivered. This place was perfect. I've been coming to the Cape since I was a teenager. It has changed some. Keep it like it is, please! Love that we can still find a place for families and not be so over crowded. Only thing I didn't like was the steps are tiled. Coming in with wet feet from the beach or pool. I have twin four year old boys and this was a concern for me. May not be for others. Other than that there were no complaints. My husband caught lots of fish and even a baby shark while fishing. We will be back! Thank you again, Teresa for sharing this lovely home with our family!

Keri, I'm happy to hear you all had a wonderful vacation and had good luck fishing! The stairs are hard to get used to, but I find once I get to the upper deck it's well worth the climb for the view. I hope to hear from you in the future! -Terri

Perfect week with some rain    Apr 01, 2016




McCosh is an excellent property. It is very thoughtfully designed and furnished. Clean and well-appointed, very nice kitchen with an ample stock of dishes and cooking utensils. The views are amazing. We really lucked out as houses on either side for at least 2 down on either side were not occupied. The 3 houses on the other side of the pool area were also empty. Sometimes we felt as if we had a private beach. The boardwalk to the beach is new and in good condition. The house has a charcoal grill and the store room has chairs and toys, although I understand these can change. We made good use of the outside hose and shower to wash our beach shoes and dog leash. Like the entry way bench as a place to leave the dog leash and beach sandals. The bedrooms are on the second floor. King bed in master BR is very comfortable. Good closet and dresser space. Master bath and hallway bath are all new and very functional. On the way up to the living room/kitchen level is a small deck facing the community pool and the bay. The main level is one of the best I have stayed at. Very open, comfortable, and tastefully done. My husband took a liking to the red lantern! Love the windows facing the Gulf and also windows in kitchen and over open stairs that face the Bay. I found the high captain chairs on the decks a treat, since I could see over the railings! Has a powder room on this main level. The internet and cell phone service work well, which is not always the case on CSB. Great spot on the beach for watching the daily dolphin parade. They came so close to the beach! We ate at Sandy Bucket twice and at the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Great shrimp at both. Wonderful quality BBQ at Sandy Bucket, better quality meat than at my favorite BBQ places in Birmingham. Live music at the Raw Bar. Just a fun place, even in the rain. The Trading Post has everything you need and the Hunt Brothers pizzas are actually a good thin crust pizza. Visit the State Park for sure. The shops on Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe are fun to go through. Theresa has a very nice book in house that describes restaurants and things to do in the area. There are also magazines, crossword puzzle books, and some games. There are multiple TVs (although we only turned it on once). Seems the cable channels differ on each of the TVs, so this was a little confusing, but we found what we wanted to watch. This is one of my very favorite places to stay. Theresa was easy and pleasant to work with.

Thank you so much for your very detailed and helpful reviews. Wow! It sounds like you all had a fantastic vacation at McCosh. We try our best to provide comfortable, clean, and well maintained and stocked homes. I have also always enjoyed that lantern! I appreciate your comments our our binders as those took me personally a lot of time to put together and update. I'm very curious about the cable channels now though as that's very strange. I also enjoyed your comments on the restaurants around the area. I know your review will help many people find that McCosh and Cape San Blas are the right choices for their families. Thank you! -Terri

Very Nice Place    Mar 01, 2016




This was probably the cleanest and well decorated property we've ever rented on VRBO. My wife, the dog, and I really enjoyed McCosh. It was our second time to CSB so we knew the pros and cons of the area. There isn't much to do on CSB which forces you to enjoy the beautiful beach and relax to the sound of the ocean. The only bar/restaurant on CSB is ConeHeads. During our visit they were closed for renovations. Who renovates at the peak of spring break? This property is a short walk to Scallop Cove, a convenience store/gas station. That's also where you can rent darn near anything you didn't bring i.e bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas and so much more. You will want to do your grocery shopping in Port St. Joe at the Piggly Wiggly. While the house is stocked with all of the utensils, dishes, and small appliances there are no spices, tin foil, paper plates, storage baggies etc. Our rental company did a good job of letting you know what to bring. If you forget something or you are not in the mood for what you bought, you can buy many grocery items at the Trading Post or scallop cove. Both have a surprisingly broad selection and the prices are really not that bad. I would caution people/pets who are not able to do stairs about this house. The kitchen and main living area are on the top floor and there are A LOT of stairs. At age 50 our calf and thigh muscles got a work out. The reward for doing all of the stairs is you get incredible views from every room in the house. We would definitely stay here again and we would recommend it to others.

Joe, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at McCosh! We do try to provide people with well maintained and decorated homes and are glad that you appreciate the same. I also enjoy the personal notes about other businesses in the area as people are always curious about such things. We hope you come back and visit for another stair climb and incredible views. Thank you! -Terri
 

Judith

A very special place    Feb 01, 2016




We enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful home: the cleanliness, the quiet location, the views from every window and porch, the comfortable furnishings, the sound of the waves, the way the sun played upon the water....even the stairs in this 'upside down' house. Everything worked, the house was fresh, with very well stocked kitchen, nice modern bathrooms. This is not a house that shows any wear and tear from heavy beach use and long exposure to salt air. Loved Antonio's on the Bay for romantic and delicious sunset dinners (twice!) and the Sandbucket down the road for lunchtime bbq. Discovered the Donut Man late in our visit or would have gained 10 pounds-delicious. We highly recommend Cape San Blas for a quiet, get-away from it all week, and the McCosh house for a worry free, easy home away from home. Thank you, Terri and Teresa, for a perfect week. We hope to return again and again!

Judith, Thank you so much for this wonderful review! We are so glad you had a great vacation at McCosh. We look forward to hearing from you in the future!
