Sweet Necessity

We just returned from a week with the whole family at Sweet Necessity. The home is outstanding in every way. So extremely clean, decorated beautifully and incredibly well stocked. Carrie thinks of everything a group will need! With a group of 12 we loved the two refrigerators, two dishwashers and all the beach chairs and towels. The views are amazing, pool fantastic and walk to the beach so easy. Carrie is so great to work with and all her properties are the BEST!!

Judy, I was so excited to welcome your family to Sweet Necessity. I'm thrilled that you found Sweet Necessity to be "outstanding in every way". We love the two refrigerators and dishwashers too! Thank you for choosing to stay at Sweet Necessity and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Carrie

We had a wonderful week with our family at this beautiful house. It is perfect for a large family and it is stunning. I love being with my family in a beautiful place and the week we spent at the beach in Sweet Necessity was just that. The house has everything you need and more. This is the third year I have rented a vacation home from Carrie and she is the best to work with. Great communication (especially needed this year) and very responsive to any needs that arise. The best money you can spend is on holiday with those you love making memories and I highly recommend Sweet Necessity.

Mary, I was so happy to welcome your family to Sweet Necessity. Repeat guests are the greatest compliment I can receive. I'm thrilled to hear that our home had everything you needed for a memorable family vacation especially so during all of this craziness. I think that this special family time during 2020 will be times that families talk about for a long time. We are happy to be a small part of that happy 2020 memory for you. I hope to welcome you back to Sweet Necessity again soon. Stay safe. Carrie

Our family just got back from a week vacation in this home. The house is really great, spacious, decoratively outstanding, and very practical in its layout and furnishings. The pool is definitely a win. Our younger grand children spent as much time in the pool as the beach. Access to beach is great. Also thru all the unknowns associated with the covid pandemic, the owner communication was excellent and was great to deal with (very fair). We will be returning.

Mark, We think that pool is a "win" too. I especially like the sun shelf of just enough water to sit in to get cool without taking a full plunge into the water. Thank you so much for choosing to stay at Sweet Necessity. This entire time is so crazy. Thank you for hanging in there with me. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sweet Necessity in 2021!

Sweet Necessity is amazing! Gorgeous interior with plenty of space, it is perfect for groups. The owners have made sure to include every amenity possible, beyond what is expected, including a dog run for the fur babies. Beautiful views from every level (2nd level from the swing is my favorite). Beach access is easy and convenient. The pool offers a refreshing break from the beach if needed. The kids loved having that option! This home has so many extra special touches that make it a unique rental like no other, highly recommend!

Nancy, I am so thrilled to hear that your family enjoyed Beach Camp so much. When we were designing and building the house we had families just like yours in mind. Thanks for choosing to stay at Beach Camp and I hope to welcome you and your family back again soon. Carrie

This house is fabulous. We took our grown children and their families. This house is set up perfectly for this. Access to the beach is easy. The pool was wonderful. House has everything you need for the beach, for cooking, for relaxing and for quality family time. I highly recommend this for large families or couples that want nice bedrooms for everyone.

Lillian, Thank you for writing our very first 5 star review of Sweet Necessity! I was so happy that it all worked out that we were able to welcome your family as some of our very first guests. It's super that Sweet Necessity had everything you needed for a great vacation. I look forward to welcoming your family back to our home again soon. Carrie

Heinrich Family
First Ever Renters of Sweet Necessity!

We travel annually from Canada and have rented many homes on the Cape. We had the pleasure of being the first renters of the newly built Sweet Necessity! This is one of the nicest properties we have rented. You can tell that Carrie, the owner, and her family have built a rental homes before and have put their years of experience into this home. The design is fantastic, open floor plan on the upper level where family and friends can enjoy the dining, kitchen and lounging area all with great beach views. Each room gives each guest the feeling of privacy and the mid floor lounge is a nice touch. Tastefully decorated for a true beach house feel. The elevator is a nice touch but the window filled stairwell is fantastic. The pool area is perfect, our girls enjoyed daily and the beach is a few steps away. We towed our boat along for our vacation and the boat ramp is 5 minutes up the road with easy access to St Joes Bay. From the two dishwashers to the beach towels for your dog Sweet Necessity has had a lot of thought put into it! Thank you to Carrie and family for the great rental experience! Eric and family.

Heinrich Family, I can't tell you how excited we were to welcome you as our first guests at Sweet Necessity. It's rewarding when guests enjoy the home as we envisioned during the design and build process. Thank you so much for our first 5 Star Review and your kind words about our home. We hope to welcome you back to Sweet Necessity again soon. Carrie

Our family lives in Atlanta, Georgia. We love visiting Cape San Blas, Florida. The relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the area keep us coming back year after year.

I will be managing your stay at Good Fortune and can be a bit of a perfectionist. That's a bonus for you, as I promise that I will do all I can to make your time at Cape San Blas absolutely wonderful.
