New Construction Amenities
Good Fortune has two master suites, each with large windows and a slider that access one of two decks that span the Gulf facing side of the home. From these decks there are incredible unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Master suite on the second floor boasts an incredible private outdoor shower.  This is a "one of a kind" amenity that no other house on Cape San Blas can offer.  It really is amazing! 

The masters suites each have king beds and large bathrooms and closets. 

The third bedroom has a king size bed and an amazing natural dune structure view that Cape San Blas is known for. Each of these three bedrooms has Smart TVs with Direct TV service. 

The fourth bedroom is a bunk room that boasts 4 built-in bunks, a large window and plenty of room for just hanging out. The bunkroom and the third bedroom share a large bathroom with a generous shower/tub combination.

When you go up the stair tower steps and turn the corner, the view is guaranteed to take your breath way. The Gulf, the dunes and the beautiful furnishings will immediately evoke feelings of relaxation and of being “at home”. 

The amazing kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need to prepare fabulous meals for your vacation. There is ample storage in the separate pantry and the French door refrigerator. The large dining table seats 10 comfortably and there is additional seating for 4 at the kitchen island. The openness of the upstairs allows all members of the family to be together but not “on top of” each other. 

There is also a large living room on the first floor, in the event that someone needs a little space. Each living area has a large Smart TV with Direct TV service and DVD player.

An abundance of windows throughout Good Fortune provide not only an unobstructed view of the Gulf but also views of all the natural beauty the Cape has to offer including unique dune structures, native flora and fauna and the beautiful blue sky.

The beautiful beaches of the Cape are a 100 yard walk down the boardwalk that runs directly beside the house. The pool is about 50 yards away, across a quiet gated, dead-end road.

When you return from the beach or the pool there is plenty of room for you to rinse off or shower in the large, ground-floor outdoor shower.

If you enjoy fishing, the Cape is the place for you. Good Fortune has a large outdoor fish cleaning sink and a charcoal grill on which you can prepare the catch of the day.


Old Florida Charm Details 
The reclaimed bead board ceiling includes unique individual pieces of 100+-year-old wood taken from farmhouses and buildings. The shrimp sign that hangs in the dining room was purchased from a local fishery where it hung outside for more than 35 years. The oyster basket, that is now the dining room chandelier, is from that same fishery. 

The pantry door was rescued from a 1920s bungalow just before it was torn down to make way for a new home. 

The table in the bunk room is a vintage mid-century modern boomerang café table from the 1950s or ’60. 

The large piece of cypress that makes the bar on the 2nd floor deck comes directly from the Dead Lakes in Wewahitchka and is the perfect place to pull up a stool and enjoy the amazing sunsets. 

Most of the furnishings at Good Fortune have a story and make Good Fortune truly a unique beach home.

Maegan

Amazing Stay on the Cape    Sep 03, 2017



This trip was our first time visiting the Cape & we had a blast! The house was amazing. I was absolutely obsessed with all of the decor! It was fully stocked with anything we could have ever needed from kitchen items, to beach gear. The location is perfect if you are looking for a low key, relaxing vacation. The beach was never crowded. It's about a 20 minute drive into Port St. Joe from the house, but the food is so worth it. You must try the shrimp & grits at Krazy Fish. We are already looking forward to our next stay. Thank you, Carrie, for being so welcoming and helpful in making our stay one we won't forget!

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Maegan, The shrimp and grits at Krazy Fish is one of my favorites too! So good! Thank you so much for you kind words about our home. I am so happy that you enjoyed your first visit to Cape San Blas, you felt welcomed and that you had everything you needed. Thank you so much for choosing Good Fortune! Carrie

Perfect family beach rental!    Aug 09, 2017




As everyone has said before me, Good Fortune is one of the most well stocked homes we have ever rented. It was such a perk that the home had a pack n play and highchair there for our use. With three young kids, the house was a treasure chest full of games, movies, plastic flatware/cups/plates, beach toys/floats, and the most adorable bunk room. My favorite amenities included the outdoor shower in the master bedroom, the open main living area, the endless stash of koozies, the office nook, and the pantry space. There is a spot for everything and everyone at Good Fortune. Even more, the beds were very comfortable. In addition, the beach was beautiful. We had gorgeous weather a few days with clear, calm water. The sunsets were out of this world as were Weber's cro-nuts (check them out if you go). While we were there, Carrie reached out to ensure we were able to check in and get settled with ease. She was available during the week and has been kind and understanding from my initial inquiry about Good Fortune. Overall, this is a fabulous rental backed by wonderful owners that truly care about providing people with a memorable experience.

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Nichols Family, Thank you so much for your touching and kind words. I really do care about providing my guests with a memorable experience and I am so happy that you felt that. The outdoor shower off the master is one of my favorite things too. I call it the "Mommy Shower" but somehow my 16 and 14 year old always end up there after a day at the beach. I am glad you got to enjoy Weber's, the beautiful sunsets an gorgeous weather. Thanks for choosing Good Fortune and we hope you will visit us again. Carrie

Love this house!    Jul 05, 2017




My husband and I have been coming to the Port St. Joe area for a few years now with the hope of moving here permanently. We wanted to share the area with our family and we picked the perfect place to do that....Good Fortune! Carrie has obviously put a lot of thought into what makes a great beach house. The house is furnished perfectly and adorably. It is very comfortable and accommodating with so many special touches. We especially enjoyed the covered porch overlooking the gulf. Great place to read, play, watch the sunset. The beach closet has tons of toys, buckets, shovels etc. The beach chairs are great....easy to carry. The downstairs outdoor shower, which is huge, was perfect...it was great to wash off all the sand and change clothes before coming up to the house...especially with a 2 1/2 year old! My husband and I both really enjoyed the outdoor shower in the master bedroom upstairs....it was such a treat! We never even used the indoor shower(although it was beautiful!) The kitchen has everything you need....including a view of the gulf as you wash the dishes! Love the walk in pantry. We enjoyed going to the pool, which is such an easy walk down the driveway...we called it our private pool...we were the only ones there each time we went! Thanks, Carrie, for sharing your beautiful home with us! We all want to come back!

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Chrissy, We would love to have you and your husband as neighbors and hope you are able to make that happen. In the mean time, we are so excited that you chose to stay at Good Fortune. It makes me smile when guests comment on all the items that I think are special about our home....walk in pantry, large outdoor shower, 3rd floor outdoor shower, dishwashing view.....I am so happy you were able to enjoy them the way I do when staying at Good Fortune. I hope you have a great rest of the summer and we look forward to welcoming you and your family back to Good Fortune! Carrie

The Rozier Family

We've Finally Found The One!    Jun 25, 2017




My husband & I, our daughter, and our son, daughter-in-law & 2 grandchildren have been vacationing on the Cape for 6 years and Good Fortune was the 6th different home that we've stayed in. As soon as we walked into the home we knew we had found our annual vacation spot. Good Fortune is by far the cleanest, most child friendly and well stocked home we've had the "Good Fortune" to stay in. Carrie has thought of everything when building, decorating, and stocking this home. The layout of Good Fortune was perfect! The spacious upper floor made family time very comfortable with room to spread out. The lower floor provided plenty of personal space for everyone staying on that level and the extra living area was an added bonus. The beach and the pool were both just a short walk from Good Fortune. For the days we launched our boats, the boat ramp at the state park was a very short drive. I hesitate to add my following suggestion because we were so extremely happy staying in Good Fortune. The only thing that could have made our stay "easier" would be a second refrigerator on the ground level to keep drinks and bagged ice. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had an amazing stay and we are all ready to go back. We've already started making our plans for next year.

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Thank you Rozier Family! I am so flattered that you found your annual vacation home. We worked very hard when designing Good Fortune to have it be so that families could all be together and individuals still have their own space. I am so happy that it worked as planned for your family. We look forward to welcoming the Rozier gang again in 2018! Carrie

Fortunate to find Good Fortune!    Jun 04, 2017




If you are looking for the perfect beach house for your family vacation, look no further than Good Fortune! From the minute we arrived we were blown away by the house and its gorgeous ocean views. The house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for a perfect week away... beach chairs (with handy backpack straps), beach toys, boogie boards, floats, board games, books, movies, a fully stocked kitchen (even two styles of coffee-makers), beach towels... you name it, Good Fortune had it! The pool was just across the private street from the house and had a nice covered area with table/chairs and even restrooms so we didn't have to run kids back to the house to use the bathroom. The house was beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and very roomy - we had 10 people staying and we never felt like we were tripping over each other. Carrie has done an amazing job making Good Fortune the perfect vacation house. We will definitely be planning another family trip to the Cape soon!

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Thank you Kelly! We feel so fortunate to have such great guests like you and your family. We are so happy to hear that you had a perfect week and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon! Enjoy the rest of you summer! Carrie

Best Cape San Blas Vacation Ever!    May 24, 2017




We have been vacationing at Cape San Blas every May for the past 6 years and our recent trip a few weeks ago was extra special since we found Good Fortune and spent our vacation there. We were impressed the minute we entered the house as the view, the furnishings, the spacious rooms and decorative touches are amazing! We truly loved everything about Good Fortune including the comfortable beds, quality linens and towels, spa toiletries, the outdoor shower off the 2nd floor master bedroom, plenty of beach towels and nice beach chairs, well-stocked kitchen with quality utensils and cookware and dinner ware, glasses, ample seating with great views from dining table and kitchen and living area on 2nd floor, great balconies off both 1st and 2nd floors with nice lounge chairs and bar stools for the reclaimed wood bar on the balcony (we love the reclaimed wood used throughout the house). Carrie (the owner) is a wonderful host as she calls to welcome you shortly after you arrive at Good Fortune and to make sure that you have everything you need. The beach ( a short walk down the boardwalk from the house) is spectacular with soft, pure white sand and crystal clear water with seagulls and pelicans and sandpipers to entertain along with the occasional dolphins swimming by. The sunsets are truly magnificent. We feel blessed to have discovered Good Fortune and we are looking forward to our next vacation there with our border collies, Kassie and Kenzie (they had a fantastic time there along with us) and our 30 y/o son David who vacationed with us. We highly recommend Good Fortune for an amazing beach vacation!

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Karen and Blaise, Thank you so much for your sweet words about Good Fortune. I am honored that your "best Cape San Blas vacation ever" was spent at our home and happy that you had everything you needed. We look forward to welcoming you, David, Kassie and Kenzie back next year. Carrie

Tom & Doris Daniels    May 02, 2017




We have been coming to CSB for the last 6 years and this year was by far the Best and our Favorite. We were lucky enough to be able to get into Good Fortune. This home is Spectacular!!! It is inviting from the moment you pull onto the carport. It is beautiful inside with it's decorations and amenities. The view you have looking out at the Gulf and the sunsets are breathtaking to say the least. The serene feeling we had here while our family was celebrating our son's 15th birthday, is something so Memorable that I hope to continue and return each year. You are welcomed by Carrie from the moment you arrive until you leave. Good Fortune is by far the best place to stay when you are in the Cape. Thank You Carrie for opening up your home and allowing us to enjoy and make unforgettable memories there.

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Doris and Tom, Thank you so very much for your kind words about Good Fortune. We are touched to be a small part of your family's vacation memories. We also hope that you continue to return each year. The next best thing to me being in the house myself is having guests that love it, and the Cape, as much as we do. Thanks for choosing Good Fortune. Carrie

Candice

Absolutely INCREDIBLE    Mar 30, 2017




We have been coming to CSB on vacation for 8 years. Our stay at Good Fortune made it the best trip yet! Carrie, the owner is amazing & ensured that our stay was perfect! The house was designed & decorated with such attention to detail...it's unbelievable. There are unique treasures all throughout this beautiful home. We made wonderful family memories during our stay & will definitely return...I can't say enough...truly incredible!

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Candice, I am truly touched by your kind words. It is an honor that you feel that staying at Good Fortune made this trip to the Cape the best trip yet. Thank you. We look forward to having you and your family as our guests again next year. Carrie

Absolute Paradise. Perfect for Making Wonderful Memories.    Mar 06, 2017




We were fortunate to be able to spend the entire month of February at beautiful Good Fortune, Cape San Blas (retired 60 yo couple and 5 year old granddaughter). This house was our home away from home like no other rental we've experienced. Pack your clothes and pick up a few groceries in Port St. Joe. That's all you'll need. Once you are there, you will not want to leave. It's paradise! We loved everything about this house, the floor plan, the architecture, and the vintage touches in decorating. We took advantage of the well equipped kitchen for practically every meal, especially evenings, because we didn't want to miss a single sunset from the covered porch or just a short walk to the beach. Things we loved-waking up to bird serenades, dolphin watching, short walkway to the beach, relaxing on the porches and on the beach, sunsets, outdoor showers under the moon and stars, bonfires. The owner, Carrie, was the perfect hostess from rental until we closed the door and walked away with fond memories looking forward to our next visit.

Carrie Shevlin's reply:

Wayne and Alice, Thank you so much for the kind words. I am flattered that you felt "at home" at Good Fortune. We look forward to welcoming you and your family again in the future. Carrie
