About Blake

I am a retired military officer and flight instructor. I was born and raised in the Tampa Bay area of Florida where I entered military service. I am a father of three wonderful young adults and a young Grandfather. I find greater reward and satisfaction with the simpler things in life; good food, beverages, nature, and socializing with quality people. I love all types of aquatic related activities; lakes, beaches, and especially the ocean. I also appreciate the beauty of mountains and sunsets and riding my motorcycle. My experiences in life provided me the ability to see 25% of the world, yet I still love to travel.

Blake purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Blake chose North West Florida

After spending a 25 year career serving in the military and seeing about one quarter of the world, decided Florida will always be my home. After diligently perusing various areas, found Cape San Blas and Peace Out on the Cape in Barrier Dunes. After considering several other properties, found myself continuously drawn to the whimsical appeal and freshness of the humble abode. The beach at Barrier Dunes is unequivocally the best beach that I have seen in the world. Aside from the fact that the white sugar sand and emerald green water is unmatched, where else can you find an all-natural beach that allows dogs and bonfires?

What makes this townhome unique

A pet friendly beach that allow bonfires as well...

Loved Peace Out On The Cape! A calm retreat! Blake was a gracious host!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to The Cape. It is our favorite beach! At the house, we found beach chairs, towels and pool floats. The home was clean and inviting furnishing basic kitchen staples. The breathing taking sunsets look like paintings! Motivating me to pickup my paintbrushes and do some sunset paintings! Can't wait to return!

Peace & quiet on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at our location of 275 Parkside Circle in Cape San Blas with no problems. The owners' info that was provided on the site was properly listed. There were no surprises or anything that we didn't like about the property. It was very clean and well maintained. The owner made sure that we had no problems getting into the property. I would highly recommend this property to friends or relatives who want a peaceful and enjoyable stay at the beach. We enjoyed our walks on the beach, watching the beautiful sunsets and there were several nice places to eat close to our location.

This was our first visit to Cape San Blas and we really enjoyed our time there. We would like to go back another time when possible.

Excellent! I will be back for sure!

I have always loved the panhandle of Florida but now even more. I am considering the area as a retirement destination.

Thanks
