About David Harrell

We love the Cape and bought this Seacliffs townhome in 1997. We were soon packing up and driving down from Atlanta as often as possible. In 1999, we had the opportunity to rent our Atlanta home and moved to the Cape as full-time residents till 2002 for 5 years, now it is a full time rental, so we can share this wonderful and amazingly special piece of paradise.

David Harrell purchased this townhome in 1997

Why David Harrell chose North West Florida

As we lived in the unit, we dreamed of improvements we could make it more like a house than a town-home. We soon gutted it and one thing led to another. I remember when David drove up with a trailer of 150-year reclaimed heart pine from that became our first floor. He laid every piece with great care. We have a photo album of some of the renovation project in the TV cabinet.. It was truly the proverbial labor of love. It continues to this day as we are always updating and trying to make it even more user-friendly and accomodating.

What makes this townhome unique

This end unit has 25 windows with expansive views from every single room. Because of the privacy and stunning views, it feels more like a house than part of a development.. It's fun to cook and hang out and you have the feeling that the outside is inside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at you vacation home. Kitchen was well supplied with pots and pans, dishes, silverware. We loved the big screen television. The views, as you said were very nice, and we loved that this was pet friendly. I give it a 4 Star!

Rustic beauty

  • 5 of 5

My family of five and 2 in-laws loved this place. I call it rustic with beautiful large plank hard-wood floors and wooden beams on main floor. Views from all floors unbeatable. My kids and I lived on the decks watching the pelicans dive and multiple dolphins. AC worked great on all floors. The place clean and no bug problem at all. Owner take call at any time and very nice.

Now if you want hoity toity with high end restaurants then not come here. This is place to enjoy incredible beauty, friendly people all along the cape, with good casual attire eating. The beach is pet friendly and our dog loved it. Kids liked having dog on the beach with them. We definitely plan on coming back. First time to Cape San Blas and love the non commercial non crowded enjoyment. Best stay on 15yrs. Forgot, beach access has no steps, so less hassle carrying things down. Owner has all beach stuff need in my opinion, beach chairs nicer than ones we brought, crab nets, cayaks. One last thought, the shrimp low boil at Scully's amazing, a small one person take out just down the road, kids loved hunt bros pizza's at trading post.

Great location, needs a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our first trip to the Cape, with pros and cons worth noting for others considering a trip here.

Firstly the unit had the best view of all the units at Sea Cliffs. The decks directly overlook the ocean, and the side windows look up the coast - absolutely amazing vistas. The place is in need of an update, with decor, appliances and furniture on the tired side. But, as the Cape is so laid back this really didn't affect our overall enjoyment.

This was our first trip to the Forgotten Coast, and although this might be harsh, after much exploration we thought it was mostly forgettable, apart from Cape San Blas. The Cape has its own personality, and St Jo's park at the north end was a treasure. If you are looking for nice restaurants and a Starbucks this in not where you should go, but if you want to hang out on the beach, cook for yourself and do very little for a week this is ideal.

Owner's Response: We are updating all that possibly looks tired to anyone, new grill, refinishing bar stools, refinishing the hart pine floors, painting decks and stairs. New screens on windows, steam cleaned stairs and kids room carpets and much more!

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time at the beach . We did not have cable all week and the water pressure would come and go. It was never cool enough on the 3rd floor....needs a separate unit . I would not stay here again...too many issues for the price!

Owner's Response: Dear Anya, I am happy to hear you had a great time at the beach! During your stay the city water company had trouble with the water and pressure, it is not something we could repair, it came back during your stay and all is well now! The cable interruption was due to the buildings were being rewired by Media com and that was the reason for the cable being out, it is now repaired and is all digital now and much better than before. The new 4 ton air conditioner has also had a new booster fan installed in the duct work and the 3rd floor is now cool and has great air flow! We love sharing this amazing property with travelers and do our very best to make it as great as possible, it is such a fabulous place due to the location, orientation of the building to the beach and redesign of the lower floor. I am sorry these things that were out of our control happened during your stay!! All the Very Best, David Harrell (Owner) 561-339-3938

Wonderful Time in CSB

  • 5 of 5

The condo is great. The best view on the cape is located right outside the master bed room door on the deck. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. The bicycles and kayaks are definitely a plus to have available 24/7. We had great time. Can't wait to go back.

The location for this condo is gorgeous and the view is absolutely beautiful. It is as clean as it can be considering the used condition of the kitchen and bathrooms plus we did not see a single bug. The condo, unfortunately, looks tired due to lack of upkeep. It has good bones but needs a lot of updating. The wood floors are very nice and it does have new TV's. Also, I love the leather furniture in the living room. Just not what we were expecting for the price.
