WOW! What an amazing and wonderful home. This property is a special jewel of Cape San Blas. The location is ideal for those that want a little privacy and yet still be located near the beach and bay. The pines around the home are so serene. The home is beautifully furnished with designer furnishings and jazzy flair. So many details went into planning and making this a dream beach vacation home. The master bedroom has a lovely porch that is great for relaxing outside and reading a book. The home was spotless and everything you need is provided to make this home a perfect vacation. The host were stellar and reached out several times to see if we needed anything. They went above and beyond and were the best host of anyplace we have ever stayed. We will be back in 2019 and I have been telling everyone about what a great and fun vacation we had.

Thanks, Ellen, for your review! Teresa and I are very glad that you enjoyed your stay at Le Grand Merci and we look forward to welcoming you again!

Best beach home rental EVER!!! Peaceful retreat within walking distance of white beaches!

My wife and I wanted a beach getaway with our 4 young children, but we didn't want the stress of being surrounded by masses of people in a typical condo or beach resort. We were looking for peace and quiet without a long drive to get to the beach. From the moment we walked through the door at Le Grand Merci, we knew this would become our usual getaway for years to come. Nestled in a pine grove, Le Grand Merci is a beautifully decorated home with a paved sidewalk that leads to a private beach access spot just 4 or 5 minutes away. Lots of windows and sliding doors allow generous amounts of light to flood the interior of the home. At one point, as I was sitting on the couch with my boys, I said to my wife, "Did you realize we haven't had to use a single interior light all day?" What a peaceful and refreshing experience. Every aspect of this home has been thought through for beach vacationers. A BBQ grill at ground level, very clean, spacious and completely enclosed outdoor shower with toilet downstairs, king bed in the master with screened in patio seating, bonus bunk beds upstairs and fold-out hideaway bed down, smart TVs so we could enjoy a Netflix movie with our kids, and a spacious refrigerator and kitchen space for full meal prep. Cape San Blas also holds some fun little surprises just down the road...fresh, hand-made donuts for an early morning treat, and Shoobies ice cream and soft serve. We'll definitely be back!!

Thank you very much for your great review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you again as soon as your schedule allows. This is our first time owning and operating a vacation rental property, so if there is anything you can think of that we should do or change in order to make Le Grand Merci even more enjoyable for our guests, please let us know.

Merci Beaucoup for Le Grand Merci!

Very thankful for the opportunity to stay at Le Grand Merci! It is newly renovated (as seen on HGTV) with an open-concept in the living/dining/kitchen area and three spacious bedrooms, plus a bonus Bunk "nook". The furnishings are bright, cheerful and comfortable. The location is great with privacy, yet close to the beach. There are 3 full baths inside the house, with a lower/street level enclosed shower & toilet for use after a day at the beach. The property was very clean and well-stocked with "necessities" (towels, bedding, toilet paper, etc.) There are several good restaurants in Port St. Joe (a short drive away), as well as a few on the highway between the house and town. Also, there are a couple of good-sized grocery stores in town and a small market on the Cape near the house.. The setting of the house is private & peaceful and Cape San Blas is a very nice, non-commercialized beach area. I highly recommend a stay at this BEAUTY!

Thanks for staying at Le Grand Merci, Gwen! It was great to have you and we look forward to welcoming you again!

Lovely Beach Cottage

Our family had a perfect long weekend in Cape San Blas. Mark, the property owner, was very helpful and easy to work with. The house is newly renovated, so everything is brand new! The owners have thought of everything: beach chairs and umbrellas, floats, plenty of kitchen supplies for cooking and entertaining, a wonderful outdoor bathroom including shower and toilet, a grill, quality bed linens and towels, and even a rubber ducky in the bathroom for the kids! The home is beautifully decorated but not fussy, and has obviously been designed with comfort in mind. The neighborhood beach is a 6 minute walk and we had it almost to ourselves, even in peak season. The walk to the bay is about 2 minutes along a beautiful shady path through the pine forest. We would definitely stay here again!

Thanks for your kind words, Christy. I am glad that Le Grand Merci had everything that you and your family needed for a most enjoyable vacation. Our neighborhood beach and bay access is one of the reasons we love this property like we do. One of our favorite things to do is go over to the beach and then turn either right or left and it seems like we could walk forever and never run out of the amazing views. We look forward to welcoming you at Le Grand Merci again!
