Good Fortune is a new vacation rental home, built in 2015, with great attention to unique details. It is the perfect combination of new construction amenities and Old Florida charm details.

New Construction Amenities

Good Fortune has two master suites, each with large windows and a slider that access one of two decks that span the Gulf facing side of the home. From these decks there are incredible unobstructed views of the Gulf of Mexico.

The Master suite on the second floor boasts an incredible private outdoor shower.  This is a "one of a kind" amenity that no other house on Cape San Blas can offer.  It really is amazing! 

The masters suites each have king beds and large bathrooms and closets. 

The third bedroom has a king size bed and an amazing natural dune structure view that Cape San Blas is known for. Each of these three bedrooms has Smart TVs with Direct TV service. 

The fourth bedroom is a bunk room that boasts 4 built-in bunks, a large window and plenty of room for just hanging out. The bunkroom and the third bedroom share a large bathroom with a generous shower/tub combination.

When you go up the stair tower steps and turn the corner, the view is guaranteed to take your breath way. The Gulf, the dunes and the beautiful furnishings will immediately evoke feelings of relaxation and of being “at home”. 

The amazing kitchen is well appointed with everything you will need to prepare fabulous meals for your vacation. There is ample storage in the separate pantry and the French door refrigerator. The large dining table seats 10 comfortably and there is additional seating for 4 at the kitchen island. The openness of the upstairs allows all members of the family to be together but not “on top of” each other. 

There is also a large living room on the first floor, in the event that someone needs a little space. Each living area has a large Smart TV with Direct TV service and DVD player.

An abundance of windows throughout Good Fortune provide not only an unobstructed view of the Gulf but also views of all the natural beauty the Cape has to offer including unique dune structures, native flora and fauna and the beautiful blue sky.

The beautiful beaches of the Cape are a 100 yard walk down the boardwalk that runs directly beside the house. The pool is about 50 yards away, across a quiet gated, dead-end road.

When you return from the beach or the pool there is plenty of room for you to rinse off or shower in the large, ground-floor outdoor shower.

If you enjoy fishing, the Cape is the place for you. Good Fortune has a large outdoor fish cleaning sink and a charcoal grill on which you can prepare the catch of the day.

Old Florida Charm Details
The reclaimed bead board ceiling includes unique individual pieces of 100+-year-old wood taken from farmhouses and buildings. The shrimp sign that hangs in the dining room was purchased from a local fishery where it hung outside for more than 35 years. The oyster basket, that is now the dining room chandelier, is from that same fishery. 

The pantry door was rescued from a 1920s bungalow just before it was torn down to make way for a new home. 

The table in the bunk room is a vintage mid-century modern boomerang café table from the 1950s or ’60. 

The large piece of cypress that makes the bar on the 2nd floor deck comes directly from the Dead Lakes in Wewahitchka and is the perfect place to pull up a stool and enjoy the amazing sunsets. 

Most of the furnishings at Good Fortune have a story and make Good Fortune truly a unique beach vacation rental home.

Beautiful home which has everything needed for a great vacation.

Owners have gone above and beyond to provide renters with everything you might need while on vacation. Wife felt home was absolutely the best stocked and furnished home we have rented anywhere in Florida. Carrie has done a wonderful job finding unique treasures to decorate, making this truly feel like your sharing a friends home. Pictures really can’t show you all that has gone into making this an exceptional home. Highly recommend Good Fortune for your next trip to the forgotten coast.

Bruce, Thank YOU and your family for being such great guests and taking such good care of Good Fortune. I am so happy to hear that the home had all that you needed to celebrate the New Year. I love to treasure hunt and it makes me smile to know that you enjoyed some of my special "finds". Thank you for choosing Good Fortune. I hope to welcome you and your family back again soon. Carrie

Quick Fall Break

Thoroughly impressed with Good Fortune! Carrie has obviously spent some time with her preparations. Well stocked with everything you would need for young kids through adults. Love the Tommy Bahama beach chairs and towels. The three bedrooms downstairs with a living area were perfect for our 4 teenage kids, and the Master upstairs next to the main living area left my wife and I at times feeling like we were by ourselves! Beach access is a short boardwalk--we were concerned when we reserved the place that we were too far from the beach, but we were not. View of the sunsets of the back deck was stunning. Community pool also a short walk was a nice refresher. Frankly, I can't think of anything we'd suggest or change! Highly recommend Good Fortune and Carrie the owner.

Jodie, Thanks so much for your kind words about our home. I'm so happy to hear that the home was great for your family. Yes, we like that upstairs master with the kids downstairs too. We adore our kids but it's nice to have some space too. :) Thanks for choosing Good Fortune and we hope to welcome you and your family back again soon. Carrie

Good Fortune

Absolutely stunning home which is beautifully decorated. This home has an extremely well-furnished kitchen with everything you need to make family meals. Lots of room for a family to be together or spend time separately in the two family rooms or in the large bedrooms. The view of the ocean from the top floor is amazing. Carrie has thought of eveything to make your stay comfortable. She even furnishes beach chairs, towels, etc. This home is great for a relaxing, family vacation!!!

Butler Family, I'm so happy that you had a great week at Cape San Blas and that you found that Good Fortune met all of your vacation rental home needs. I really want my guests to be able to have everything they need at my homes so they can arrive and settle in for a nice relaxing week. I'm thrilled that you were able to do just that. Thanks for choosing Good Fortune. Carrie

Perfectly Perfect!

It was our “Good Fortune” to return to this wonderful vacation home this year. We have been vacationing as a family (6 adults & 3 children) on the Cape for 7 years and Good Fortune is the ONLY house we’ve stayed in more than once. Good Fortune has everything we could possibly need or want (and more) and Carrie is absolutely THE BEST homeowner to work with. She is on top of everything and communicates very quickly if there are issues to arise along the Cape. We are already trying to plan our vacation for next year and we see Good Fortune in our future. Thank you for sharing your home with us, Carrie!

Fabulous House at a fabulous beach!!

Fabulous stay at our favorite beach!! Good Fortune was a wonderful house for our beach vacation. Two couples stayed and we had our two dogs who absolutely love, love, love the beach! Carrie was wonderful to work with and she has decorated her home spectacularly and with loving details. We hope to return soon!

Donna, Cape San Blas is our favorite beach too! I am so thrilled that all 6 of you had a great time at Good Fortune. Thank you so much for your kind words regarding my home and working with me. I appreciate it. I look forward to welcoming you all back again soon. Carrie

Best Cape San Blas Vacation Ever!

We just returned from our second amazing vacation at Good Fortune. The weather and beach and surf were fantastic and the accommodations at Good Fortune are the best of any vacation rental home that we have stayed in. The house is spacious with spectacular views of the gulf. The decorum and furnishings are perfect for this lovely beach house and the kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for cooking meals. Everything you need for the beach (chairs, toys, umbrellas, boogie boards and towels) are also provided. The beds are comfortable with nice linens and quality towels for the bathrooms. The balcony decks have comfortable lounge chairs and a reclaimed wood table with bar stools to be able to sit on the deck and enjoy the magnificent view while eating a meal. The sunsets were spectacular every evening last week while we were there. Carrie is a wonderful, attentive owner who contacts you when you arrive to make sure that everything is OK with the house and is always available if you need to contact her about anything while you are staying at Good Fortune. We highly recommend staying at Good Fortune for your next beach vacation to Cape San Blas. We have already made our reservations for next spring.

Karen and Blaise, It sounds like you had an amazing week at The Cape and that the weather was just perfect for you. The photos you posted of the water were just clear and calm. I'm thrilled that you had everything that you needed at Good Fortune and that you found the home well stocked. Thank you for your kind words. I greatly appreciate them. I look forward to welcoming your family back in 2019. Carrie

Dave and Susan (Sanibel, Florida)

Our large family (my husband and me--aka Pop and Nana, our 2 children and their spouses, and 6 teenage grandchildren) enjoyed a wonderful 2017 Christmas celebration at this beautiful home. It was just perfect in every way! The house is amazing--decorated like one you might see on HGTV. There was a luxurious bedroom for each of the adult couples--2 of which are "master suites" with walk-in showers. The 6 teenagers loved having their own space downstairs in the bunk room and adjoining TV room. The kitchen is very well-equipped with everything we needed to prepare Christmas dinner for a family of 12--even including a well-stocked spice drawer. Carrie has obviously put a lot of thought into providing all of the little extras for the comfort and enjoyment of her guests. Of course, the Cape San Blas area is amazing too. We hiked out to the Dunes at the State Park, did a lot of birding, ate oysters, went to church on Christmas Eve, had fun on the beautiful beach, and enjoyed a big bonfire on the beach on Christmas night. It was truly our good fortune to choose Good Fortune for our 2017 Family Christmas!!!

Dave and Susan, I am so so happy that you chose to spend Christmas at my home and that you had such a special time. It sounds like a perfect trip with such wonderful family memories. Thank you so much for your kind words about Good Fortune. I try to do all I can to ensure that my guests are comfortable and "at home". I'm so happy that you felt that when staying at Good Fortune. I hope to welcome you and your sweet family back again soon. Carrie

A Great Time Had By All!!

Believe all these 5 star reviews!! Good Fortune lives up to it's name and then some. What a great house, so clean, perfect floor plan, plenty of room indoors and out, such beautiful views, nice quiet neighborhood, boardwalk is right there. Pool just across the street. Really nice furniture, so well equipped, absolutely no complaints at all, only compliments!! The Cape is our favorite family place anytime of year and Carrie's house made our stay even more special. Thanks again Carrie!! We hope to be back soon!

Rich and Vera, Your kind words about my home are so special to me. Thank you so much. I am thrilled that you spent Thanksgiving at Good Fortune with your family and that you had such a great time. I look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. You are very welcome. 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.
