A wonderful, pet-friendly beach home in a great location!    Mar 01, 2019

We were the first guests to stay in the Knotty Pelican post Hurricane Michael. We were very grateful to be there even in the midst of continuing clean-up efforts in the entire area. The house still had some minor exterior damage, but the interior was clean and very comfortable for us and our two dogs. We enjoyed our morning walks to the beach where we found shells, sand dollars and starfish! While some of the restaurants and activiities in the area were closed due to hurricane damage, we found great places to eat and shop in Appalachicola. We had several visits from family members who found the house very accommodating for family activities. The kitchen is nicely equipped to for cooking. We made lots of wonderful memories. Teresa and Terri were very responsive to any requests that we had. We would definitely recommend this home for your vacation in beautiful Cape San Blas!

Great House! Great Location!    Sep 23, 2018

My husband and I, along with our dog, stayed at Knotty Pelican back in September. We had a wonderful time! The house is extremely nice and updated with new appliances and super comfortable bedding. We spent a lot of time on the top level covered deck off the main living room! It offered a really nice view of the beach, and the two ceiling fans were a plus to help keep a breeze blowing and help keep away those notorious biting flies! The pool area was nice and we enjoyed it daily! The high fence around the pool along with the landscape helped to offer a lot of privacy from the houses next door. The only suggestion I might would make would be maybe adding some additional seating to the arrangement in the main living room. My parents and sister joined us later in the week, and it was a challenge for us all to have a comfortable place to sit. The boardwalk access to the beach put you up close with the nature around. We saw a turtle on one of morning walks out to the beach. We Love the Cape! and we Love Teresa’s Beach Homes! Teresa is so friendly and always responded to my emails and calls quickly!

Amazing Home Away From Home    Dec 15, 2017

Beautifully renovated home with all of the amenities that frequent travelers and vacationers would expect. The location is super convenient with the parks just minutes away and the restaurants in town 10-15 minutes away. Our favorite thing to do was sitting on the porch drinking coffee in the morning and having a glass of wine or two watching the sunset. The community pool is two lots over. The beautiful beach is just a short walk on the board walk. As soon as we say beach, our dogs would get excited. They love walking on the beach! South of the Cape is super quiet and relaxing. We can do as much or as little as we want. We look forward to coming back to the Knotty Pelican.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Thank you for your review. We Love Notty Pelican! The quiet neighborhood is a plus along with the convenience of a very nice lightly used community pool just 200 feet away. Pelican's owners did a great job making this home cozy and upscale, come see for yourself!


Great place to relax and unwind    Oct 16, 2017

The beach house is wonderful and the spacious rooms are very cozy. We went horse riding in the beach and enjoyed the view where you get the sunset/sunrise. Recommend for couples and families to enjoy this getaway.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

Thanks Mark. This is just what I heard from our incoming winter guest too. They are sooo happy to be back again! They loved the new blue sofa cover the owners just put in. They enjoyed Pelican so much last year they didn't want to leave. I asked how the home lived since they were there for over 2 months and they said it was perfect! Free netflix for those not so great beach days, plenty of room to spread out and the kitchen had all they needed. The walk to the beach is so serene with lots of birds! They are nature lovers and very much enjoy the area.

Perfect Vacation Home    Jul 01, 2017

We stayed at this location during our July vacation. This home is very spacious, and has everything a family will need as a home away from home. The beach views are breathtaking, and the sunsets are amazing. The home is located near a state park with more fun activites for family and friends. We had a wonderful time during our visit. We look foward to staying here again as it is the perfect vacation home.

Teresa's Beach Homes 's reply:

So glad you enjoyed your stay at Naughty Pelican. This home is located on the south end of Cape San Blas about 10 minutes from the state park. It's convenient to both town, restaurants, and the natural areas like the state park. Look forward to having you back.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!    May 21, 2017

We have been visiting the Cape for many years and this was one of our favorite houses to rent. It was clean and well taken care of. Pride of ownership was certainly evident. The decor was bright and comfy and the view was awesome. The house had a great layout for couples or family with kids. It was a bit of a walk, distance wise, down boardwalk to beach but not a hard walk at all. Great beach when you got there. The house is in a great location, not too far down on the Cape. We rent from Teresa's all the time and they are a pleasure to work with. Can't wait till next time.

Naughty Pelican    May 14, 2017

This is a wonderful house! Lovely home and great furnishings with a pretty ocean view from the two balconies. Everything you could ask for including a semi-private pool almost next door. The beach was a very short walk away, and the beach at St. Joseph State Park is always worth the few minutes' drive. Get a wilderness pass if you go there, and drive to the furthest point where you can park and take the short sandy walk to one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in the U.S. Be sure to stay for sunset!

Our family had an incredible vacation here and made lots of good memories to treasure for a lifetime. Our kids are teens and young adults, and they loved the home also. There are plenty of big screen televisions, cable, a handful of dvds, books and games, and pretty good wifi in case of a rainy day, and tons of room for everyone and their stuff. The outdoor shower and sink, the three indoor full bathrooms, and the laundry room made it very convenient to clean up after being at the beach. The fire pit outside is also really nice, as well as the picnic table area near the parking. The neighborhood has such a nice feel with pine trees and natural landscape. Heavenly vacation home! Highly recommend.

Excellent home!    Apr 23, 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Naughty Pelican. This home has all the amenities you could need for your stay. We cooked in several nights and had all the kitchen accessories of your own home kitchen. The ocean view from the balcony is spectacular. The white sands of the beach are a short stroll down the boardwalk and the community pool is just two lots over. The home has been updated with modern design elements and the fire pit was great for making s'mores! This was our fifth time staying on CSB and we will definitely be back to this home. Highly recommend it for your CSB stay!

Amazing Vacay    Nov 19, 2016

The location of this home is amazing. I did a girls getaway with my daughter and we had a delightful time. We would start everyday with a cup of coffee on the deck looking at the gorgeous view, and end it the same way with a glass of wine, ahhhhh. The sunsets here are stunning, we went on a horseback ridding excursion on the beach at sunset one evening. This was such a relaxing experience. Dinner in town at Jo Mama's pizza and Provisions was our favorite. The seafood market in town was a great place to go get fresh seafood to grill on the outdoor fire pit (a gas grill may have been easier). We went to Apalachicola for shopping and fresh steamed shrimp by the dock. A must try are the fresh croissants with maple and pecans drizzled on-top from the Trading Post, omg they are to die for. We will be back to this great property soon!!!


Great place on the beach!!!    Dec 31, 1969

Our family stayed in this rental during the summer of 2016. We loved the unit and appreciated the modern amenities. I loved the split levels as it gave the kids and parents some separation. It was an extremely peaceful and quiet week long vacation. I will definitely book again.


Paradise with all the creature comforts of the 21st century    Dec 31, 1969

This place is amazing! We stayed here with some old college friends and made some incredible lasting memories. It was a unique experience because it was like being at a remote paradise yet with all the technological marvels we’ve come to expect in today’s world. A picture might be worth a thousand words, but photos don’t do this place justice! The property is set in a tiny enclave amidst a small peninsula; you are surrounded by nature on all sides. First world conveniences are a short drive away in the quaint town of Port St. Joe and there are plenty of touristy things to do on a day trip. Our favorite part was just hanging around the beach house enjoying the beauty of nature that surrounds the property, the gorgeous beach, the splendid sunsets and sunrises and spending time with family and friends in the common areas. The layout is perfect for gatherings and with many different living areas it never felt crowded. The property is well stocked and we were surprised at the high end quality of the appliances – definitely not your typical short term rental! The beach is so peaceful and private unlike most places that we’ve visited in the past. The community pool was never occupied each time we went and the amenities like the outdoor shower, fire pit, picnic tables and open deck for al fresco dining was icing on the cake. The only shortfall was the fact that all good things must come to an end and our week was over long before we were ready to leave. We will definitely be putting this place on our list of places to come back to and highly recommend this property to anyone!
