Perfect Vacation

We just had the most wonderful family vacation and Le Grande Merci was the perfect backdrop! Beautiful, completely updated, beautiful decor, a location that can not be beat, exceptionally clean, views of both the Gulf and the Bay. I could go on and on! The walk to the private beach access is just five mins or a 1 min car ride (we opted to drive a few times just because of all the beach gear we took to set up for a full day at the beach). We are used to bringing our own beach gear - chairs, canopy, boogie boards, etc - but there wasn’t even a need to do so as Mark and Teresa provide all you need! The beach is gorgeous and completely uncrowded. This was our second trip to the Cape and I still can’t get over how secluded the beach is! It makes it so nice when you have young children who like to run and play and you don’t have to worry about them disturbing other beach-goers. (Also helps with social distancing!) The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for cooking dinner! This was incredibly helpful as we have a child with a long list of food allergies that prevent us from being able to eat out or grab take out, so we cooked in daily. The beds are all very comfortable! Our children loved the built-in bunk in the hallway upstairs. We woke every morning feeling well rested and enjoyed coffee and some quiet time while taking in the sunrise over the Bay. If you are planning a trip to the Cape, book Le Grande Marci! You will not be disappointed!!

Thank you so much for your kind review, Wes and Tiffany! Teresa and I were honored to host your family in our home and we are very happy that your kids enjoyed it so much. We look forward to hosting you again!

The most charming beach house!

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Le Grand Merci. Mark and Teresa are fantastic hosts, sweetly checking in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Not that they needed to check—the house is beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, with everything we could possibly need. We've been coming to the Cape every year for well over a decade, but this was our first stay at Le Grand Merci. We were truly smitten with this stylish home; it's the cutest (and most private) house for the price and is near my absolute favorite stretch of beach. Can't wait to come back!

Thank you for your very kind words, Mara! Knowing that you have been coming to the Cape for many years makes them all the more meaningful. We look forward to hosting you again!

Amazing 30th Wedding Anniversary Getaway!!

We absolutely loved and enjoyed the Beach House at Le Grand Merci in Cape San Blas, Florida!! The decor, natural lighting, full kitchen (frig w/ice maker), dishwasher and washer/dryer was so nice. Beautiful decor! Especially, love white and blue cottage type colors through out the house. So many extras too, comfy rocking chairs, large kitchen table and large picnic table on the porch. Perfect place to getaway from the business of life, to relax and enjoy the white beaches of Cape San Blas. We were first timers to the beach life and definitely hooked. Exploring, relaxing, swimming, walking, horseback riding and shelling at the lovely white beaches captivated us mostly. Also, found two giant swings (like porch swings but bigger) at the beaches to watch sunrise or sunsets. Hope to come back soon. We were able to do so many things but yet still so much to do..too much to tell. State Park and beaches so close to the beach house. Our favorite food places were Sanddollar Cafe, Peppers, Webbers Donuts (worth the wait). Our hosts were generous and attentive to us. God Bless You Both and your family. Appreciate your love and example for the Lord!! Blessings, Brian & Tammy Royal

Thank you, Brian and Tammy, for your kind and thorough review! Teresa and I were honored to have you choose Le Grand Merci for such a special occasion and we look forward to welcoming you again!

What a wonderful home!

Our two families of 6 people in total spent 5 days at Le Gran Merci in late August 2020. We were 4 adult and 2 children (both 10 yrs old). And what a wonderful time we had! First of all the home was very easy to find with clear road signage. The directions were accurate and easy to follow. The home itself was well positioned and pleasantly situated on the property. The positioning of the home made for the most spectacular sunset views each evening directly from the dining room table. The lowest level includes a simple and clean bathroom with toilet and shower, critical for the post-beach trip rinse off. There was also 2 chests stocked with beach supplies. The main house live includes the kitchen, dining room, guest bathroom, master bedroom and master bathroom. The home was very clean and the kitchen was very well appointed with every thing needed to cook and serve our family of 6. The kitchen includes a large side-by-side stainless steel frig, stainless steel stove, and a wide array of nice dishes, silverware, pots and pans. The large dining table easily fit us all and could have accommodated 2-4 more guests. The living room, including a sectional pullout sofa and chair was comfortable for the six of us. The large tv was easy to see and hosted a wide variety of entertainment options. The guest bathroom included a large tub/shower combo. The master bedroom and bathroom included a king sized bed and large walk-in shower. Upstairs the home housed 2 bedrooms and and a final bathroom. In the hallway there was a wall-mounted narrow bunk style bed set. These beds were slightly narrower than a normal twin mattress but worked fine for the kids. The front bedroom had a queen sized bed and small desk. This bedroom also faced those great evening sunsets. The back bedroom had a king sized bed and 2 night stands. All the rooms and bathrooms were well stocked with nice towels and linens. Finally the home was very well positioned between access to the white sandy beaches on the gulf side of the peninsula as well as the calm waters on the bay side. Over all we had a wonderful time at Le Gran Merci. The entire trip was very relaxing and comfortable.

Thank you for your detailed review, Travis. I am sure prospective guests will find it helpful. It was a privilege to welcome you and your family to Le Grand Merci and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

Excellent in every way

Our May 2020 stay at Le Grand Merci was excellent in every way. At LGM you'll find a beautiful home in a uniquely gorgeous location. The combination of a short walk to both the beach and the bay cannot be beat. After this first visit to Cape San Blas and LGM, I can't imagine going to any other beach and there'll be no need to search for any other place to stay than Le Grand Merci. The Beach: We highly recommend paying $6 to enter the state park 1 mile north, park and walk north on the beach; you'll probably have the beach to yourself within a few hundred feet!! The Gulf beach across the street from LGM is also excellent and still sparsely populated. The Bay: The state park maritime trail (part of the T.H. Stone state park, but on the right before the park gatehouse) is a short walk (.3 mile?) to a beautiful shallow bay. Cute little crabs scurry across the beach in the bay, hermit crabs occupy beautiful shells, and mullet fish jump out of the water around you. Watch out for the stingray trying to hide or swim away before you get close. We also found sand dollars, sea urchins, and little star fish in the bay. A small hammerhead shark also swam nearby. Wading in the bay is a great adventure. Food: The fried seafood at St. Joseph Shrimp Co. was good. Our favorite food was Paul Gant's BBQ in Port St. Joe; their ribs and collard greens are amazing. Weber's donut shop is worth the wait; arrive 20-30 minutes before they open. Fishing: We chartered half a day with Captain Pete Barwick who owns Bounty of the Bay Charters. His experience and reasonable price is hard to beat. We caught several delicious black drum, all 15-35 pounds. Finally, I must say thanks to Mark and Teresa, the owners of Le Grand Merci. Mark was responsive, flexible, and gracious. His detailed emails were clear and so helpful. They both were very kind to us. We were the first occupants in 2020 after the Coronavirus travel ban was lifted. Thank you, Mark and Teresa, for all you did to make our stay possible. Our greatest affirmation is to say that we hope to come back soon. Cape San Blas is a special place and LGM is the perfect home and location to enjoy it all.

Thank you very much for your kind review, Jon! Thanks, too, for the tips on what you enjoyed most about the area. I know that will be helpful to future guests. It was great to have you and your family at Le Grand Merci and we look forward to hosting you again!

Loved Le Grand Merci!!!

We had a wonderful family vacation at Le Grand Merci Beach House. It was the perfect place to take our young children to the beach for the first time. We absolutely loved having complete privacy at the beach. Le Grand Merci had everything we needed and made our stay so enjoyable. Highly recommend!!!

Thank you very much for your kind review, Macel and Jamie. We were honored to have you and your children stay at Le Grand Merci. Hearing stories like yours brings us a lot of joy. One of the things Teresa and I have always loved the most about Cape San Blas is the ability to enjoy such a pristine beach with our family with the privacy you reference. In our experience, it truly is unique in all of Florida. We look forward to welcoming you back again, soon!

A true getaway location in Florida! We’ve traveled throughout the State and Cape San Blas is the best destination for peace and beauty. The home matches the scene with relaxing colors, ample amenities, refreshing and very clean! Everything you need and then some! Easy access to beach, bay and State Park. Beautiful views from the home in all directions, especially from the wrap around deck. We love beaches and this one is spotless, even a public restroom and shower near 2 of your own private beach accesses. Also, any food or beach items are at shops nearby, including fair prices. We loved the local fresh seafood, ice cream and more! The owners pay attention to every detail and they’re available every step of the way! Book LeGrand Merci today!

Bob and Julie, Thank you for your kind review. Teresa and I agree with you that our beach is one of the very cleanest and most beautiful that we have ever seen. That is what drew us to Cape San Blas in the first place, along with the relaxing, family-oriented atmosphere. We look forward to welcoming you again, soon!
