.GREAT.    Sep 15, 2018

Had a great stay. Nicely equipped and clean. A Little shade on the back deck would be nice, but not required. We will definitely consider booking for next year. We really appreciate dog friendly and so did our two labs. We wore them out.

Wonderful location to beach and bay    Jun 30, 2018

The games, puzzles, and hot tub were a real hit when it started raining. The proximity to the bay and beach were great. We will definitely be coming back.

Our Stay at Amelia By The Bay    Jun 16, 2018

Just came back from a wonderful vacation at Amelia by the bay. The owners are extremely friendly & always a text away if you have a question. The house is fully equipped with almost everything you need at the beach from beach chairs, wagon, beach toys, kayaks, paddle boards & much more. The screen in porch by the dock is a nice added feature. We set out crab traps at the dock (that came w the house) and had a bunch of crabs & hermit crabs. Raw chicken seemed to work the best in the crab traps. 
My husband was extremely happy that he was able to dock his 24ft center console hydrasport at the dock. we had to watch the tide chart on a daily basis as the tide does get very low. If you take a boat make sure you pay attention to the tide chart!! The guys went deep sea fishing & caught king mackerel, sharks & mahi-mahi! 
We loved the house & hope to visit again!

Stay at Amelia By The Bay    May 26, 2018

On previous trips to CSB we stayed on the gulf side and was looking to see what the Bay side had to offer. Wow, what a surprise. The Dock is a must and the calm crystal clear waters on the bay will keep you occupied for hours. The screen house at the bay is a must of late afternoons. We also spent several nights at the fire pit looking up at the stars. We saw eagles fly over several times during our stay. The hot tub is a great addition to cool off and take in the beauty of the surrounding area. We also enjoyed using the crab traps, kayaks and made our first attempts at paddle boarding! Can't wait to return next year!!!!

We Love Amelia By The Bay!    Apr 28, 2018

There is so much to love about Amelia By The Bay. This was our third stay and we will definitely return. The home is attractive, comfortable and well stocked with anything you can think of to make your stay enjoyable. The store and fish market about a mile away have about anything you could need. We have visited here with extended family with small children and the house is set up well for that too. We love the dock for fishing, and a relaxing place to sit at the end of a day of visiting the beach. The front and back decks also offer a relaxing seat either in the sun or the shade, often eagles and ospreys fly over head. The St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, located nearby at the end of the cape, is a treasure we just love visiting. Experiencing the beauty of Cape San Blas with less of the hustle and bustle of more commercial locations along the Gulf Coast is the reason we love staying at Amelia By The Bay. Steve and Susan couldn't be better hosts to ensure a perfect vacation. We feel pretty lucky to have found this gem and can hardly wait to return!

Amelia By The Bay    Apr 21, 2018

What an amazing stay! Great location by the beach and the bay..... best of both worlds! The owners provided great service! Lots of extra amenities.... paddle boards, kayaks, hot tub!! The dock was amazing as well! The perfect place to relax and watch the sunsets! I can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful place to relax.    Apr 06, 2018

This was our first visit to Amelia and I have to say it surpassed everything we thought from the photos on the website. It was peaceful, we loved the bay side and the Gulf side which was only a short walk away. Absolutely loved my first experience kayaking in the bay. The shallow water was perfect for our fist time-- no worries! It is a very quiet place but has sidewalks down the road for biking or walking the dog (yep, she was welcome there). Groceries were not too far away for an emergency run with larger stores in a nearby town. There were a few places to eat close by for when we didn't want to cook too. The rooms are large with plenty of space to spread out in the common areas. The decks were great for outdoor cooking and watching the sunrise and sunsets. So was the hot-tub! Overall, this was a lovely get-away and we will return!

The Perfect Little Getaway    Mar 31, 2018

I don’t think we could have found a better spot! It was nice to have access to both the bay and the beach. The beach is an easy walk on foot that took us no time to get there. Also, the pier on the bayside is gorgeous! We lit a fire out there on the fire pit and overall I think I might like the bay side a little more than the beach, but we loved having access to both! The house itself is kept well and was clean when we arrived. Everyone slept comfortably and the internet worked fairly well throughout the week. Not much more we could have asked for! Will definitely be coming back!

Pleasant, clean, and well stocked home on the Bay    Mar 24, 2018

We had a great time at Amelia on the Bay! The owners were very helpful and checked in on us via phone message once we arrived to make sure everything was going well and if we needed anything. The home was clean, well stocked, and also had a new hot tub! We really enjoyed the use of the paddleboards, kayaks, and crab traps. I recommend to anyone seeking a quiet relaxing vacation!

Excellent!!    Jan 01, 2018

Amelia is absolutely one of the best homes and locations on Cape San Blas if not the Forgotten Coast! Easy access to both the Gulf and St. Joe Bay. The home is spacious, clean, private and close to everything you’ll need to have a fun vacation. Steve and Susan are very accommodating and committed to making your stay a great one. Amelia is definitely worth checking out!

Melisa Q.

Great Time    Nov 03, 2017

Susan and Steve’s home is located just a short walk to the bay and across the street from the beach. They have thought of every detail in making their home comfortable and accommodating. The whole area is full of wildlife and we saw bald eagles from the deck and many birds by the bay. The sunrises and sunset were amazing and we enjoyed many quiet moments on the pier. Port St. Joe is a quiet little town. We hope to return!

Great clean nicely decorated home    Oct 27, 2017

We stayed at Amelia By the Bay the last of October through the first of November and the weather was in the 70's five of the seven days we were there. The bay was beautiful and clear. Scully's Slow Country Boil is just a block away. The public beach access is just 3/10ths of a mile away. It is dog friendly (must keep your pet on a leash) and our little Cairn loved it. We will definitely consider going back.

Week in Late October 2017    Oct 20, 2017

Everyone in our group children and adults loved the stay at Amelia. The public access to the beach worked out very well and was more convenient than I expected. i loved the long dock and screen porch that is located right by the bay. I was able to stow all my fishing gear there instead of lugging it from the house. The kayaks and sup's were lots of fun. We hope to plan another stay here in the future... Randy from Tennessee

Peaceful and Relaxing!    Oct 11, 2017

This rental house is so beautiful with lots to do. It feels like home. They have everything you need to enjoy your time. Enjoy your time kayaking, stand up paddle board, or late night bonfire on the Bay. You can go crabbing and fishing of the Pier. The beach is only a walk away to enjoy with the family, or a romantic walk during the sunset! I am already planning on another trip. Thank yall for a wonderful time!!
