Great clean nicely decorated home

We stayed at Amelia By the Bay the last of October through the first of November and the weather was in the 70's five of the seven days we were there. The bay was beautiful and clear. Scully's Slow Country Boil is just a block away. The public beach access is just 3/10ths of a mile away. It is dog friendly (must keep your pet on a leash) and our little Cairn loved it. We will definitely consider going back.

Peaceful and relaxing

This rental house is so beautiful with lots to do. It feels like home. They have everything you need to enjoy your time. Enjoy your time kayaking, stand up paddle board, or late night bonfire on the Bay. You can go crabbing and fishing of the Pier. The beach is only a walk away to enjoy with the family, or a romantic walk during the sunset! I am already planning on another trip. Thank yall for a wonderful time!!

Week in late October 2017

Everyone in our group children and adults loved the stay at Amelia. The public access to the beach worked out very well and was more convenient than I expected. i loved the long dock and screen porch that is located right by the bay. I was able to stow all my fishing gear there instead of lugging it from the house. The kayaks and sup's were lots of fun. We hope to plan another stay here in the future... Randy from Tennessee

5 of 5 Had a great stay. Nicely equipped and clean. A Little shade on the back deck would be nice, but not required. We will definitely consider booking for next year. We really appreciate dog friendly and so did our two labs. We wore them out.

The most laid back quiet vacation ever!

Beautiful home conveniently located near the bay. The dock and kayaks were the highlight of the trip. We loved exploring and seeing all of the wildlife. We paddled about a mile out into the bay and fished. We had a 4 foot hammerhead shark aproach our kayak and a huge turtle not long after. We caught different types of fish and enjoyed them for dinner. The cleaning station on the dock is perfect! The floor plan of the home is ideal and open for families. The kitchen had everything I needed for cooking. The A/C is cold! I was super impressed that this area is not grown up and touristy which was defined a draw! Thank you again for sharing your home.

Never Disappointed

This is the fourth time my family has stayed here. Perfect location on the beautiful bay and a short walk to the beach. Amelia has plenty of room and is well stocked with kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Cape San Blas is a beautiful place and Amelia by the Bay is the perfect place to stay while you explore the area.

The house and property was great.

We had a great vacation at the Amelia on the Bay. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of pots, pans and dishes to cook meals. The bathrooms were also well stocked with plenty of towels as well as beach towels. We loved that there were kayaks and paddle boards to use. We made daily kayaking trips in the bay. We also loved traveling down to the state park to go to the beach and to go snorkeling. All of our family enjoyed our stay.

This property had everything and more as described. This owner goes above and beyond expectations.

We had an awesome week. The house and amenities left nothing to be desired. We spent most of the week on the bay. Fishing was great with trout and flounder. The dock is perfect for launching kayaks or just enjoying the sun and scenery. We made good use of the kayaks and paddle boards and saved rental fees. We took our own life jackets, but there was no need. Everything was provided. The screened in hammock made a perfect resting place. The house is beautiful, updated, clean and extremely comfortable. Large screened TVs available if you have time for TV, which we didn't. The washer was great, much better than you normally find in vacation homes. It is truly a home with personality. One can tell the owners take great pride in this property. They also check with you during your stay to make sure all is well. That is rare for many rentals. We have been coming to the Cape for 20 years and this is our favorite place on the bay. Plan to return soon!

We had a wonderful week at Amelia on the Bay. I can't say enough about the beauty of the surroundings, tastefully decorated clean home, well-equipped kitchen, provision of beach towels (they take up a lot of room if you are flying in!). The house is spacious- we had 4 people but easily could have accommodated more. The kitchen was a joy to cook in with great pots and pans, lot of dishes and glassware. There were some helpful pantry essentials available- salt and pepper, cooking oil, spices, coffee filters, sugar. Wonderful access to the bay and the screen house, and the walk to the gulf beach is easy as well. Having kayaks and SUP included to use at the house was a huge savings and very fun- last year we stayed at the state park and rented this equipment and it was quite expensive. Proximity to the state park is nice, the bike/ walking trail is right down the driveway (although we could never hear traffic). For those who want to still be tuned in, there is internet and TV, a land line, and good cell phone service. Marcia was delightful to deal with from booking, to confirming, to letting us know the house was available a little longer if we wanted it. I coordinated this trip for me and my husband, and another couple, and they have already asked that I book again for next year.
