Family Celebration! by Mark M. 09/12/2019
House and pool were great!! We celebrated our youngest daughter being proposed to while horse back riding on the beach and our son becoming a Certified Professional Controller.

Thank you for a great week on the beach. by Deadra G. 08/04/2018
Thank you for a great week on the beach. The house was great. We have rented many beach homes and this one has by far been one of the best! Until next time!

Well planned out home! by Vicki L. 07/08/2017
Over the years we have rented many great homes on Cape San Blas. This home was the best supplied home ever! We love to cook and found everything we needed in the kitchen. The layout of the home was perfect also. Loved sitting on the decks! Ohio Family.
Perfect time away! by Bill R. 12/17/2016
We just spent three months at Once Upon a Tide and had the best time. When we were looking for a house to spend three months we remembered that this one was being built last year. It is in a great location and a very quick walk to the beach. Our dogs loved walking on the beach and we met a lot of great people. Recommend this house for anyone looking to get away from it all. Sylvia and Serenity beach rentals were a pleasure to work with and quickly responded to any request. If you want the perfect house to get away choose Once Upon a Tide!!
Vacation perfection! by Churchill family 09/10/2016
Once Upon a Tide is a beautifully constructed home with all the amenities any family could need. We love the furnished decks, fenced pool, short walk to the beach, high end finishes in the home, pet- friendliness, gas grill...too many to list! My husband and I have been coming to CSB for 4 years now and we can't imagine vacationing anywhere else... no high rise hotels obstructing your view, no traffic, beaches without crowds... Perfection! Silvia with Serenity Beach Rentals is fantastic at coordinating your stay and is responsive and accessible. We will definitely be contacting Silvia about a trip back to Once Upon a Tide next year! We wish it was sooner than that!
I would give Once Upon a Tide 10 stars! by Randi B. 07/30/2016
Once Upon a Tide was the perfect home for our family beach vacation. Sylvia was wonderful to work with as our property manager and made the process so easy. She was open to communication throughout our stay and had everything taken care of. The home is beautiful and the lay-out is perfect for adults and children to have enough room to enjoy vacation. We loved having our own pool. My only suggestion would be if you are brining little ones to bring baby gates. There are a lot of stairs and we were chasing my 2 year old nephew a lot. We have already booked for next summer. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!
Once Upon a Tide by Hulett 06/25/2016
My husband I brought 7 children to the CSB. We had 6 teenagers and a 9 year old, the house was absolutely perfect. There was plenty of room for everyone. The house is beautiful and has everything you need. We loved the location the two teenage girls and 9 year old could ride their bikes to Shoobies, which they loved! The teenage boys loved the fishing. Everyone loved the beach and the private pool I am already looking forward to returning to this home next year!!
Stunning NEW Gulf view house, with large balconies overlooking beach! by Mbfisherman 04/15/2016
Our stay at Once Upon a Tide was so relaxing. The home had everything we needed to thoroughly enjoy our beach getaway. The kids loved the private pool and we loved to sit on the balcony watching them and looking for birds and other "wildlife" in the natural area of the Cape. One morning we walked on the beach down to the Trading Post store where Weber's Donut stand is out front. SO good! They sell out really quick though so arrive early! We also love the flavored water ice at Shoobies right there beside Trading Post, too. We like to add a little rum to our pina colada ice 😉 The brand new home was great and Silvia with Serenity really goes the distance for her renters. We could tell she really cares and sincerely wanted to make sure we enjoyed our visit which we did, so thank you, Silvia! Can't wait to visit again!!
