Loved it!

We had the best week in this home. I can’t say enough of the wonderful hospitality of Donna (the manager), the general store down the street, and the shrimp market next to it. Everyone is so friendly. The house was everything we could ask for and more, clean, up to date, spacious, and comfortable. Thank you so much. We will be back soon!

fabulous property will become our go-to for San Blas. Pictures don't do it justice. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Bathrooms and kitchen have great finishes. Clean shower tiles and grout which look new. Kitchen is well stocked. Plenty of dishes, pots/pans, silverware. Not just 6 of everything like many places. Blender, toaster, waffle iron, rice cooker, coffee maker. Ice makers, HVAC, TV's work well. Beds and sofas comfortable. Linens and towels comfy and soft - no stains. Pool service comes 2x week. Beach view. GREAT outdoor spaces/decks. Second living room off pool ideal to provide some separation. House is in excellent shape - nothing broken, no holes, scuffs or stains on sheetrock walls or doors --feels and smells fresh. If you clean your vacation home from time to time for your family like we do - this place is REALLY easy to clean. All floors are LVT (vinyl planks that look like wood) which make this place a dream to clean up. And makes it super pet friendly. Huge, private-ish outdoor shower is fabulous. Hose bib right at car port. Both make rinse down after beach really easy. Easy up tent is not mentioned in write up but is provided which makes beach days wonderful. House has some beach toys like boogie boards and kid stuff. Outdoor furniture on decks and at pool is high quality and stable - not those cheesy glass tables and plastic chairs that blow over in a gust. VERY close to the beach. Close enough that you don't mind walking back and forth for the stuff you forgot! Just a shell/sand road to walk on for about 50 yards - no highway to cross - so really safe for pets and kids. Donna makes contracting simple. She's incredibly easy to work with and extraordinarily helpful. The management company makes every transaction easy including check in. We rented bikes and beach chairs which turned out to be a great idea. There when we arrived and picked up right before we left. Clean beaches. Safe and quiet area. WONDERFULLY WONDERFUL.

Wonderful!

We had a wonderful stay in Once Upon a Tide. The beach is so close and the pool is wonderful to have when you’re ready to just float. There were even pool floats, a tent and a beach wagon in the storage room/outdoor shower. The ice maker and cooler downstairs were so convenient! The house was very quiet even though the houses around us were filled with families. Everything was very clean and well taken care of from top to bottom. Even though our kids are older I did notice the baby gates at the top of the stairs and extras in the laundry room too for those with small children. The kitchen was stocked with all the cooking utensils and cook wear we needed. Our pup enjoyed her stay too just be mindful of the sand spurs if you bring a furry friend. The beach was never crowded and we didn’t have to rush out in the morning to get a good spot. Sunsets on the cape are just steps away and breathtaking! Be our Guest handled all of our questions before arrival so quickly-Donna was amazing! She was even just a phone call away after we left when we forgot a bag. From before to after Once Upon a Tide and Be Our Guest didn’t disappoint.

Perfect in every way!

We’ve stayed at Cape San Blas before so we knew how very special this place is before we even arrived. Once Upon a Tide, was perfect in every way for us: location, configuration, cleanliness, decor, kitchen, ice maker (loved this), beds/linens...I could go on. We enjoyed every minute here and will be renting this home again. Donna a Be Our Guest was friendly, responsive, and even left us a small bouquet of flowers on the counter, which was the perfect little touch to our arrival. The only suggestion I have would be to the owners, the gas grill needs to be replaced or just removed. Seems like a liability as the burners are nearly all rusted out. We just used the Weber grill so we were thankful to have two options. Another suggestion, add ceiling fans to the deck off the main floor as it would be nice to have some air movement on those days where there’s little to no breeze. Again, everything was really perfect for us and we will be coming back again next year and likely just renting the same home. Why mess with perfection? See you next year!

Manager's Response

Thank you so much Pamela for the 5 star rating. The Cape has been a much needed distraction for so many families this year. 5 star and perfection would be a great way to describe the Cape coupled with Once Upon a Tide. This season has been really busy and with guest going in and out it is really helpful to have this sort of feedback. I know that Donna mentioned that you have already booked the same home for next year and you will find that your suggestions were taken seriously. See you soon!

I've rented houses on all 3 coasts as well as the Rocky Mountains over the last 10 years. This house ranks right up there with the best of them. Incredible is the common word that can best be used to describe the house, the service from Donna and team, the location away from crowds, and the very short walk to the beach. We've been to the Cape before and had a good idea of what to expect. This beat our expectations. Will look to Donna and this house the next time we come back!!

We rented Once Upon A Tide after cancelling a week in a condo at Orange Beach. Wanted to more isolated from people and have our own private pool. This house was a great fit for our extended family of 9 which includes my 3 grandchildren—ages 4, 7 and 10. They especially loved the pool and spent a lot of time in it as did the adults. On the last 2days of our trip the beach had double red flags so it was nice to have the pool. We were close to beach with an easy short walk. Beach was not crowded at all and we were easily able to keep distance from others. The house included most everything we needed to cook all our meals and eat in. Would definitely stay here again. Donna and Brian were great to work with. A 5 star vacation for sure.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much Meyer family!! We are so happy that you enjoyed Once Upon a Tide! We agree that during these times the location and the feel of the private beach steps away from your home would be most desirable. That pool is so nice on those stormy days or when you just want to lounge closer to the mini fridge and bar area off the pool.; what a convenience that is!

Be Our Guest Vacation Homes are fortunate to have added this home and we hear nothing but good things across the board. Come back soon we would love to have you.

We had a great week. We had changed from a four bedroom condo in Orange beach to this house to have a private pool and no other people nearby. The house is great and furnished wonderfully. The only thing is there was no elevator but that can’t be helped. Also the queen bed on the main level is very high. It was hard getting in and out. I know it is for storage with drawers underneath but there is plenty of room in the closet for a set of drawers. Everything else was wonderful. Donna and Brian were wonderful To work with. The house was clean upon arrival. The bottom of the kids feet did not get dirty walking around. Warning about the neighbors at the end of the road. They watch everything. You are not allowed to park the golf cart there but it was great having it to haul gear and me to the end.
The ice maker downstairs was great and the drink fridge was wonderful. It would be nice to have another small fridge upstairs somewhere. We played refrigerator Jenga with food. It got to be funny. That would be in an ideal world. We loved the house. We would bo

Was super pleased with our vacation rental. Very clean. Had everything we needed and more. The owner was so pleasant to work with! Cannot say enough good about our overall experience. This is our sixth time to the cape and the nicest company we have rented from. We highly recommend this rental!

Renting this house is more of an experience than a regular reservation at a hotel or other vacation homes. The service received by Donna, the amenities, and the attention to details is top of line. The place is spacious, modern, inviting and very clean. The place is not right on the beach but only a few steps from it so we went to the beach with our dog multiple times. We loved the area. We wished that we had more time to explore the Cape and Port St Joe more but we will be back. Please note that the house is on three levels. It worked very well for us since we really don't mind stairs and the view is fantastic.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review Robert! This is so wonderful to hear! Our entire team appreciates your encouragement! We are thrilled you are planning to come back to the Cape! See you soon!
