Become immersed in the untouched beauty of Cape San Blas at this charming 2-bedroom beach cottage, nestled on more than an acre of waterfront property along St. Joseph Bay with oaks, pines and palmettos lining the shores.
Formerly the "Reed Cottage", Cardinal's Cottage is newly renovated from top to bottom. Set upon a raised platform, the cottage welcomes guests through a private, wrap-around deck with new lounge furniture and a glass, four-seat patio table. Sip coffee in the morning to the sound of herons and piping plovers, or fire up the propane grill for dinners with spectacular sunsets. After a day on the water, take advantage of an enclosed outdoor shower, located on the side of the home.
As you enter, a cheerful kitchen area and living room greet you, married by an open floor plan with light streaming through picture windows. In the living area, a comfy sectional sofa faces a hardwood coffee table and flat-screen TV, offering ample space to lounge. The updated kitchen features all-new appliances, a stainless steel sink, four-seat dining table and granite prep counter, re-purposed from a hardwood dresser. The cottage features hand-crafted, whimsical light fixtures throughout, each created from a re-purposed object.
Through a short hallway are two bedrooms, both styled in nautical decor with vintage artwork. The master has a queen-sized bed, twin nightstands and space to hang clothes. The second bedroom has two twin beds, a large picture window, and a washer and dryer -- the ultimate convenience for families.
A full bath lies just outside the bedrooms, featuring tiled floors, a hardwood sink and spacious, walk-in shower. Throughout the home, you’ll enjoy air conditioning and heating, new hardwood floors and new paint, creating a cheerful ambience with modern comforts.
Outside, you’ll find the tranquil atmosphere of the bay, with St. Joseph steps from your door, easily accessible from a community boardwalk. Stroll along the beach in search of starfish and sea grass, spend a lazy afternoon kayaking on the bay’s tranquil waters, or watch spectacular sunsets over the water from the comfort of your West-facing deck. Within a short drive are wildlife preserves, birdwatching sites and national forests, allowing you to explore the varied, natural beauty of Cape San Blas.
For a night “out,” you’ll find some of the area’s best restaurants within short drive, each offering fresh seafood and local charm. Our team of Cape San Blas locals can give you their favorite recommendations.
However you choose to experience Cape San Blas, Cardinal's Cottage is an ideal homebase for guests who want front-row access to the water and modern amenities without sacrificing authentic cottage charm.
We are happy to welcome up to 2 dogs at this home with a non-refundable pet fee of $200.
Below is a snippet from the owner as to why the name was changed from Reed Cottage to Cardinal's Cottage:
On October 10th 2018 Hurricane Michael, a Category 5 Hurricane made landfall at Mexico Beach. A seven foot storm surge flooded St. Joseph's Bay in 15 minutes. The surge caused this house to start to float. This house was saved by a tree that fell onto the roof , pinning it to the foundation.
A Cardinal (bird) is said to represent a visit from a past loved one. Legend has it that this cottage was saved from destruction by our loved ones. So, in honor of their efforts, a new name and a place for them to hang out will forever be called the "Cardinal's Cottage".
