Peaceful, unspoiled, and uncrowded— a holiday at Sweet Nancy’s Bay House is like staying in your own private nature preserve. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has the feel of a cozy and rustic cabin in the leafy green tropical forest, yet with tranquil bay waters right outside your door. It’s the best of both worlds and a true treat for nature lovers.

Enter Sweet Nancy’s up a flight of stairs and onto the open front porch. There’s a gas grill here and a dining table that’s perfect for grilling up your fresh catch of the day. The front facade of Sweet Nancy’s also has a screened-in porch and a small laundry area. Inside, the open-concept floor plan includes an updated kitchen with a convenient peninsula bar, a dining table with room for everyone, and a cozy living space with a flatscreen television that’s ideal for family movie nights with a bowl of popcorn.

Sweet Nancy’s Bay House has two bedrooms and sleeps six people.

First Bedroom- Main Floor
This room has a king-sized bed and french doors that leads out to the back deck and the bay beyond. A full bathroom with a soaking tub and a separate step-in shower can be accessed from the hallway.

Second Bedroom- Main Floor
Located at the front of the home, this bedroom features a bunk bed with a full-sized bed on the bottom and a twin-sized bed on the top. Another bed in this room is twin-sized, allowing four people to sleep here. This room also has a full en suite bathroom.

Chances are, you’ll find you spend most of your time at Sweet Nancy’s on the spacious back deck. Completely screened in and outfitted with comfy furniture, you’ll linger here often. It’s an ideal spot to slip off your flip flops, feel the gentle offshore breezes, listen to the eclectic coastal birdsong, savor a glass of wine, enjoy a good book, or simply relax on the swinging day bed and catch a catnap.

A screen door off the back deck will take you outside to a sandy path in the seagrass. Follow the path down to a weathered wood boardwalk that leads out to a dock in the bay. The unique ecosystem of the bay is like walking into your own private aquarium. Discover starfish, sand dollars, or scallops in the tides. Watch the entertaining pelicans dive for their dinner. Hop in a kayak and keep an eye out for stingrays and sea turtles. Grab your fishing pole and catch some sea trout, kingfish, or flounder for dinner.

When you want to head out and experience the local flavor, some of the area’s best restaurants are only a short drive away. All the shops and restaurants offer that classic Cape San Blas old-school charm. Escape to the natural beauty of Sweet Nancy’s Bay House and experience the unspoiled bliss of a holiday on the Cape. Please note* this home is located on marsh land which is wild and natural. Guests should expect to encounter the natural elements such as insects and other wildlife that live nearby. We recommend all guests come prepared with bug spray and water shoes for best enjoyment. The boardwalk is weathered and rustic. A new raised boardwalk is coming in the near future. *
We are happy welcome up to 2 dogs for an additional non-refundable pet fee of $200.

Comfortable accomodations. Would prefer getting more than just local TV stations. Great pier.

The house was great and we had a relaxing vacation! First time staying bayside and it was different, but amazing at the same time. Some improvements: the driveway was VERY bumpy and when filled with water, it’s like driving through a lake. If we had brought our car, we aren’t sure if we would’ve made it! The back screen door needs a handle on the outside to pull it shut - it lets bugs in. There were lots of tv channels, but only the basic cable channels worked. We weren’t there to watch tv, but those little things can help a little. We were also told mid-week not to drink the water because of a reset to the system - and then told we were on a well system and not to worry... Otherwise, we liked the house and the communication by text. Checkin and checkout was easy and we will definitely consider coming back and will recommend it to friends.

It was a spotless rental to walk into, generously appointed in all rooms with lots of luxury touches that I don't expect in a rental house. The house is secluded and beautifully situated on the bay and a pleasure to stay in. A very pleasant surprise in every respect.

The house was extremely clean when we arrived, they thought of everything including the small games and books. The back porch was our absolute favorite spot in the house. We would definitely be back.
