Beach Camp is a stunning new vacation rental home located in the private, low density neighborhood of Ocean Haven. Completed in June 2015, Beach Camp boasts amenities like no other vacation rental home on Cape San Blas. This includes a custom made 19' shuffle board table in the game room, 4 decks with both gulf and bay views, an extremely private pool in a natural setting, original art, large outdoor shower and changing area and outdoor game area.

Beach Camp is a 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom vacation rental home. The bedrooms include two master suites, one bedroom with a king, one bedroom with two full beds and a bunk room with two sets of built-in twin bunk beds. 

The is plenty of space for families to gather in both the game room and the great room. Located on the 2nd floor, the game room includes a smart tv and a table for playing board games and doing puzzles. The centerpiece of this room is the beautiful shuffle board table lovingly made from reclaimed barn and bowling alley wood.  It is a beautiful table,  a ton of fun to play and is the only shuffle board table on Cape San Blas. 

The great room on the 3rd is a large and open space with a vaulted ceiling made from 100+ year old reclaimed beadboard. The ceiling will take your breath away.  It is a work of art!  From the center of this room you can look to your right and see the gulf and then turn to your left and see the bay.  The views are amazing.  We feel family meals are important especially on vacation.  The family table is where memories are made.  Because of that, we have built a table (from the same barn would used to make the shuffle board table) that can comfortably seat 14.  It's a stunning table and we hope will be the place your family gathers to enjoy a meal, share stores, laugh and create memories.  

There are a total of 4 decks at Beach Camp.  The gulf side decks have both gulf and pool views.  The bay side decks (one private off a bedroom and one off the great room) both have beautiful bay views.  Both the gulf and the bay decks on the 3rd floor have reclaimed cypress wood bars.  These bars are the perfect place to enjoy a meal or a drink.  

The pool area at Beach Camp is like no other on Cape San Blas.  The private and natural setting makes it easy to find a good book, settle into a lounge chair, take a deep breath and just relax.  The kids can entertain themselves in the pool or by playing games on the artificial turf area.  The beach closet is stocked with several games in addition to all the chairs, boogie boards buckets and shovels you will need. 

The trip to the beach is an easy one.  From the gulf side of Beach Camp you will walk along a flat nature path approximately 300 yards to the boardwalk.  Signs guide your way.  Ocean Haven has a dedicated neighborhood beach walk-over that leads to to the beautiful sands of Cape San Blas. 

After a full day at the beach and the pool your family can gather around the fire pit at Beach Camp.  Six Adirondack chairs and two tables ring the fire creating a comfortable place to just sit with a glass of wine or roast marshmallows for s'mores. Just imagine the memories that can be made under those unforgettable Forgotten Coast stars.

Our family just returned from a wonderful vacation at Cape San Blas in the perfect beach house, Beach Camp. We loved the laid back lifestyle of Cape San Blas free from the hustle and bustle of other gulf coast beaches. Beach Camp was perfect for our family of 11 which included 6 adults and 5 children. It is spacious, very well equipped, and beautifully decorated. Carrie is always available to answer any questions and is very attentive to detail. It was so nice to have the cart to load the cooler, chairs, and toys on for a short walk to the beach. This is definitely a 5 star house in all ways!!

Hi Lois Thank you so much for your review. I am so happy to hear that you found Beach Camp to be a 5 star home for you and your family. Thank you for choosing to visit Cape San Blas and for staying at Beach Camp. I hope to welcome you back to the Cape and away from the hustle and bustle again soon. Carrie

We stayed at Beach Camp in July the house was amazing! Carrie thought of everything no need to bring anything. We loved the area and loved being able to have our dogs on the beach. We will definitely be back in the future.

Hi Brannon Family, I'm so happy that you found everything that you needed at Beach Camp and that you had an amazing time. I agree that having dogs on the beach is so much fun. I look forward to welcoming you back to our home again soon. Carrie

Beach Camp

We had 4 generations at Beach Camp last week! We’ve been traveling as a family since 1991, but always to Gulf Shores. We have a new favorite place now! We’ve never stayed in a house this beautiful and clean before! It was so much easier to travel without having to take beach chairs, towels, etc. Thank you so much for providing those items! We mostly ate in and the kitchen was perfectly stocked with everything, including spices! Caroline was an amazing hostess! She went above and beyond in providing information about the area and checked on us while we were there! You cannot go wrong with this house and location! Thank you for everything!

Amanda, I am so happy to hear that you have found your new favorite place in Cape San Blas. I am thrilled that Beach Camp worked out perfectly for you and your 4 generation family. That is what we had hoped for when designing and building this home. I so appreciate your kind words and hope to welcome you back to Beach Camp and Cape San Blas again soon. Carrie

Great Place For Quite Vacation

We stayed a week at Beach Camp with 2 other families, this included 6 kids under Ten, 2 teenagers & 6 adults. We found this home to have everything you could think of to make your stay amazing! The home was set up perfect for the kids with the bunk room and the teens enjoyed the room with 2 double beds and there own space with fridge & bathroom. Our family normally stays in Destin but we were looking for something less busy & commercial and Cape San Blas Beach Camp was it! It's such a quite beach town with plenty of room to walk on the white sand without fighting for space. We enjoyed cooking meals in the house and eating together at the large table that seated all of us while over looking the cape & ocean. Another nice addition is the heated pool and fire pit set up out back we enjoyed the great outdoor space with the kids! We will be back to Beach Camp and loved that we were able to book direct with Carrie she answered all the many questions we had about visiting a new area and she was in touch to make sure everything was as expected. I loved being able to talk with her directly with any questions our group had about the house or just general questions. Cant wait to get back to the Cape!

Hackathorn Family Welcome to Cape San Blas! I'm so happy you tried something different...you may never go to any other beach again. :) . I also so happy that Beach Camp met all of your needs in a vacation rental home. You describe using the home just as we had envisioned when we designed it from the teenagers in the ground floor room and the kiddos in the bunk room. Thank you for choosing to stay at Beach Camp. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Carrie

Beyond Thankful

What a week! We hate to drive away! Everyone was right in saying the house is perfect. Carrie has thought of everything! From sleeping on "clouds" in the bedrooms to the outdoor oasis, we lacked for nothing! Cant wait till next year!

Kim, Thank you for choosing to stay at Beach Camp. I am so happy to find that it had everything that you needed for a great week at the beach. I have a hard time driving away from the Cape too. I hope to welcome you back to Beach Camp sometime soon. Carrie

Wonderful!

We stayed at Beach Camp over Spring Break, and all I can say is wow! We have kids ranging from 3 to 16 years old, and it can be hard to please everyone. But, between the pool, the beach, the fire pit, and the awesome shuffleboard table, we never had a dull moment. The house decor is top notch and really gives you a “beachy” feel. Working directly with Carrie (the owner) makes it so much easier, too. We have booked with vacation rental companies before, and they are fine...but nobody has ever gone the extra mile to ensure our vacation was perfect like Carrie. We will be back!

Kendra and Aaron, I am so happy to hear that you had a great stay at Beach Camp while visiting Cape San Blas. When designing the home we worked really hard add elements that would appeal to all ages. It makes me smile knowing that it did just that for your family. We love that shuffleboard table too. :) . Thanks for booking directly with me and I look forward to welcoming you back to Beach Camp soon. Carrie

Fabulous Beach House!

We had an amazing family, fun week at Beach Camp. The house is beautiful and very well stocked from the kitchen to the outside storage room. The decor is fabulous and every inch of this house is impeccable! The elevator was very helpful for bringing in suitcases and groceries. Also, for the old folks not having to climb the stairs. There is a short trail walk to the most beautiful beach! It was awesome we were allowed to bring our fur babies! I can’t say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Carrie, the owner, is so easy to work with and was always available if we had a problem or question. We definitely will be back! 😎❤️

Cape lover

We recently stayed at Good Fortune with our family and another family. Good Fortune was fully stocked, it had everything you could ever need or want while on vacation. When we were searching for a home off the beaten path we settled on the Cape. I sent Carrie an email with a lot of question about rates and other details and she immediately responded with a phone call. From day one her communication was great! We received detailed information about the home and places to go in the area for groceries, tours etc. The home was the perfect distance from the beach-just a short walk down the boardwalk that was right off our patio. While walking along the beach in the morning we saw a group of dolphins off the shore playing. Almost daily while swimming we saw dolphins close by. The community pool was across from the home and was very private! We were so pleased with our stay we had Carrie keep our down deposit so we could book for the following spring break!! If you are looking for the perfect home away from the business of tourism this home is for you!!!

Best Cape San Blas Experience

We have stayed at Beach Camp in 2018 and 2019 and have plans to return in 2020. Carrie is wonderful to work with and is very professional in her attention to the upkeep of this beautiful home and the satisfaction of the guests who stay there. Beach Camp is conveniently located on the main road, close to the Trading Post and Weber's Doughnuts (yum) and the beach is a short walk away. The home did not sustain any damage from Hurricane Michael, due to excellent construction to CAT 5 standards. Our children and grandson were very happy swimming in the excellent-size pool, which can be heated for an additional fee. Carrie provides plenty of pool floats, beach toys, chairs and even a beach cart. Everyone enjoyed the indoor shuffleboard and the many table games that were provided. The kitchen is well equipped and the long dining table can accommodate large groups of family and friends. Having an elevator is a plus when bringing in suitcases and groceries. This is a pet-friendly home (additional fee is charged), as are the beaches. The only upgrade we suggested is to have more firm mattresses than are currently provided. Staying at Beach Camp or Carrie's other homes will insure you have an amazing Cape San Blas experience. Harry and Kay Reed

Harry and Kay, Thank you for being such wonderful Snowbirds! It is so special that you get to spend so much time at the Cape with your long-time friends and family members. I'm so happy that you enjoy Beach Camp and plan on returning for the third time in 2020. Thanks for the feedback about the mattresses. That is a tough one as everyone has different preferences when it comes to firm or soft. We will be sure to keep an eye on them to ensure that they are in excellent condition. Carrie

Great Vacation

We greatly enjoyed our week at Beach Camp. It was the first time in 12 years that all 4 generations was able to go on vacation together. We even has our 2 fur babies with us. The private pool was great for my new 7 month old grandson while the older kids hit the beach every day. The island was great and not crowded. We will definitely go back again

Angie, I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your week at Beach Camp and were able to spend that special family time together. I'm glad to hear that the pool was great for your little one. We were hoping that our littlest guests would enjoy that shallow sun shelf. Thanks for choosing to stay at Beach Camp and we look forward to welcoming you back 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.
