Secluded Paradise Right on the Beach! We rent Sunday to Sunday and welcome your Beloved Pet...

Sun Sets Right in Front of Your 60 Foot Porch!

'Hidden Treasure' is the true meaning of a beach house located at the North end of Cape San Blas, right next to the entrance to the State Park. The beautiful driveway leads through the woods to the beach home. Hidden Treasure is nestled among the trees and sits on a gorgeous 15-20 foot dune. This property is located on a very secluded and peaceful area of the beach. Watch the dolphins play on 120 feet of Gulf frontage. The property is almost one acre and is surrounded by wildlife and undisturbed dunes.

Walk directly to the ocean on your own private boardwalk. No need to pack your lunch - the beach is only 25 feet from the house! The crystal blue water will make you feel as if you were on a Caribbean island. Enjoy the large empty beach with white powdered sand and lots of seashells to be found. One of the highlights of this home is its seclusion and privacy. This is truly paradise found and a dream come true!

Large living room with 3 separate areas to read a book, be on your computer, or watch TV. The dining room and kitchen with new granite countertops, back splash, appliances, and top of the line furniture, to make your vacation one-of-a-kind The home has been freshly painted, surrounded with a white vinyl privacy fence and a new driveway with tropical colored pavers.

This home is a typical one level beach house. It's location high up on a dune allows breathtaking views of the ocean. Watch the amazing sun set while relaxing on the back porch!

The layout of the house is a simple split design with living room, dining room and kitchen being one spacious room, perfect for entertaining. We offer cable TV and wireless wifi. The updated kitchen is fully equipped and you can can watch the ocean while preparing dinner.

The master suite is located on one end of the living area, and two bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bath, are located on the other. The master suite and one guest bedroom have entrances to the 60 foot deck overlooking the beach! Our guests will have sweet dreams on the brand new king size memory foam with cool gel.

The porch is enclosed so you can open the doors and windows for a soft flowing breeze throughout the home during the off summer months.

There is a NEW bike and walking path that leads from the entrance of Cape San Blas all the way to the State Park (appx 7 miles). It is great for jogging, biking, exploring, and very safe for children. Up to (2) beloved dogs are welcomed in this home and the beach is pet friendly!

We look forward to sharing our lovely beach house with you, your family, and guests. Make new memories at 'Hidden Treasure.'

This was the BEST vacation my family has taken.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and clean!! There was nothing we needed. The location was perfect. Very peaceful. The people I met on the beach and in town were so friendly. Everyone I met treated me great. Both of my adult children went with me and they both said this was the best vacation we have every taken. When you walk in the front door and look right out onto the ocean, breathtaking. The house was set up perfectly. The two living rooms were great, those who wanted to watch TV could and those who didn't could sit in back couches and read but still be involved in conversation. We spent most of our "home" time on the screened in porch. PERFECT place to stay.

Enjoyed our stay! Easy access to the beach. House was clean and had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Hidden Treasure! Easy access to the clean, quiet beach. House had everything we needed. Owner was great to work with. Beach and bay were both great for fishing. Sunset Coastal Grill in Port Saint Joe was our favorite place to eat. Also enjoyed a day trip to Apachicola. Would for sure stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Callie for your 5 star review! Your family was such a pleasure and we are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay. The fishing is great in the ocean and on the bay. Also, water is clear and great for swimming. Best of both worlds...

Enjoyed for the most part put it didn't live up to the reviews posted

  • 3 of 5

1. During rain storms the rear gutter over the walkway leaked and you couldn’t get down the steps without getting totally drenched.

2. The cleaning crew needs to do a much better job cleaning under the furniture and removing some of the dog hair.

3. Out of 4 TVs only 2 worked

4. The Dryer needs to be replaced from looking at the rusted door and the fact it took 3 to 4 cycles to dry towels.

5. The road coming into the property needs paving or some gravel to cover up the mud

Beds were very good, location was good and the Beach was great. I would stay there again but would not pay the asking price

Owner's Response: Thank you for your information regarding some issues you had with the beach house. We are so sorry for any inconvenience you might have had during your stay. We wished that you would have contacted me at the time so we could have resolved any dissatisfactions. Since this review, we checked out the TVs. Three out of four TVs worked great and the master bedroom lost its channels during the storm. We have auto scanned the channels from the remote and it is fixed. Whalaa! The dryer is used every weekend to wash and dry all linens and towels. The professional cleaning company has had no problems with the dryer. Maybe, the lint catcher needed to be emptied or too many items put in at once. During your stay, the begining of the access road to the rental home was under construction. Within 2 weeks, the road has been repaired. In addition, the driveway which the home sits on has been upgraded recently with new pavers. We encourage all of our arriving guests to inspect the property within 24 hours and be totally satisfied with the cleaning or anything else. We provide the name and phone number of our professional cleaners who can come out immediately and take care of any unresolved matters, before your vacation even begins. We are here to make sure that all of our guests have the optimum experience at "Hidden Treasure." Please just give us a call or text to let us know how we may better serve you... Thank you, Leslie

Lovely Beach Home and Beaches

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our small dog stayed at Hidden Treasure for a week. The home is very nice and it looks like the owner continually updates and upgrades it inside and out. It's nice to know your rental money goes back into the house to keep it nice. The master bedroom mattress was the best we have ever slept on. It was amazing. These beaches were nicer than any others we have walked on in the Florida panhandle, they were firm and flat. You are allowed to walk your dog on the beaches as long as you pick up after them. That was one really nice perk about the area. We had a lot of fun renting bikes a couple of times at Scallops and riding to St. Joe Peninsula State Park. We also ate at Killer Seafood in Mexico Beach three times. It is a local dive type restaurant, a great experience. The fried grouper and fish tacos were amazing. The screened in porch would be great in the summer months to be able to sit out and enjoy the ocean bug free, in the winter, we wished it wasn't there but that is only our personal taste. It was easy to communicate with the owner and everything about our trip went smoothly. Thank you for sharing your wonderful beach home with us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the informative review. It is great to hear about other people's experiences and where they visited so it can help others. I learn about new places to go and see all the time. The master bedroom mattress is the top of line Tempurpedic. We feel that a lot of time is spent in the bed and want our guests to wake up refreshed and relaxed to enjoy the outside activities such as horseback riding, sailing and snorkeling, bike riding, walking on the beautiful beach, or just picking up a fishing pole to see what's biting. Remember, "Paradise is Awaiting Here."
