About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

This is a beautiful 2000 SF home just steps from Cape Shoals Beach. The house is located in a small subdivision that offers private beach access along with a quiet and friendly environment. The house is conveniently located between the 'Trading Post' and St. Joseph State Park, with a covered carport large enough for three vehicles and driveway space for a boat. The outside amenities include an enclosed hot and cold water shower, picnic table, charcoal BBQ grill, beach chairs and sand toys. There is a bike path on the Cape and a park with covered pavillions located within walking distance to the house.

The first floor entry area has a freezer stocked with bags of ice to keep your vacation drinks cold. Ice on the Cape is expensive and doesn't last long on those hot summer days. This area also provides great entertainment for the kids with a foosball table, and basketball game.

The second floor features the main living area, kitchen, master suite, laundry room and 1/2 bath. Your family and friends will enjoy a 50 inch plasma TV, DVD player, stereo with six disc CD changer. The queen sofa is a pull out bed for extra sleeping space. The kitchen/dining area is well equipped, including microwave, blender, electric hand mixer, twelve cup coffee maker, four slice toaster, waffle iron, electric griddle and dishwasher. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans, cooking utensils and place settings for eight. The master suite features a king size bed, 42 inch plasma TV, DVD player and walk in closet. The master bath has double vanities and a large walk in shower. The laundry room has a large capacity washer and dryer making it easy to keep all those beach towels and sandy clothes clean during your stay. Enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail on the screened in porch.

The third floor has a second master suite with private bath, queen size bed, walk-in closet, 32 inch plasma TV and DVD player. This suite offers a sitting area furnished with a recliner and lamp for reading and relaxing. There is also a private screened balcony with gulf view off this bedroom. The third bedroom has a private bath, two full size beds, a 32 inch plasma TV and a DVD player

Why William Newman chose North West Florida

This property is on the north side of the cape, clearer water, nicer beach, and the beach faces west to see the beautiful sunsets.

thanksgiving get away

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at R&R before and loved it. I decided to try it for a thanksgiving week. It was the best vacation decision I have ever made! R&R provides bags of ice, charcoal, fire wood for extra night time beach activities! The house has 3 huge master bedroom and a half bath on the common room floor. The views are great and so are the sounds of the waves at night when sleeping with the windows opened (only with the A.C turned off). I would definitely do this trip again next November hopefully it will be available. Thank you R&R !!!

Very well appointed family beach house

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful vacation spot for a family that just wants to get away from their busy schedules, spend lots of time together at a beautiful beach in a home thoughtfully appointed for all ages. The listing was very accurate in terms of location, layout and amenities. The property was very well maintained and clean. The owner was delightful to work with, as he answered all questions promptly and was very accommodating to our schedule and questions. The beach is an easy walk away and the surf varied by day, which provided a nice change in possible activities in the water. The beach is unbeatable in the evening - it would come alive with people as the sun went down and the temperature cooled. I would definitely recommend this property to those looking to really get away.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

R&R provided just that! Much needed rest and relaxation! We have been visiting the cape for the past few years and this is by far our favorite property. It felt like home, well stocked, very clean, so comfortable, and the location was perfect. Thank you Bill for being so easy to work with and for thinking of everything we may need! The ice especially came in handy. We would highly recommend this property and hope to visit again next year!

I welcomed my 40's in R&R and it was the best B Day present I could have received. The Cape is gorgeous and the house was beautiful. Better than advertised. Immaculately clean, the décor was very welcoming, the rooms spacious, the porches a perfect place to enjoy the ocean breeze. The beach is the best in FL. The amenities provided (ice, charcoal, fully stocked kitchen, beach chairs) were not only welcomed but evidence of the Newman's care for their renters which you do not see often. My whole family was amazed by the whole experience. I am returning to the Cape and would go out of my way to rent from the Newman's in the future. Will be back... soon!!!! Did I mention it was gorgeous??? LOL

The house was just as advertised. It was spotless and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were easy and great to deal with. The extras they add like ice is very helpful. The beds were comfortable and house had everything you need. The beach is a very short walk and great views from second floor balcony. This was our first time at the cape and we will return hope I get to deal with the newmans on future rentals on the cape thank you for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved R&R! Perfect for the grandparents and the kids. Easy beach access to CSB beaches, which are beautiful. Rented a lot of beach houses, but this was the first that provided so much gear (e.g., chairs, boogie boards, kiddie pool, sand toys, etc.). Thanks again, Bill!
