About the property

4BR/3BA-Sleeps 8- Custom built home with fireplace!

Lion's Paw, a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom luxuriously appointed home, awaits you in beautiful Cape San Blas. You are less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. The home sleeps 8 comfortably, each room includes a TV with satellite cable. Lion's Paw has a screened in back porch where you can sip a glass of wine and enjoy the sounds of real Florida nature. The well-appointed kitchen includes all the tools and amenities to meet your cooking needs. Early risers will enjoy rocking on the front porch and watching the sun rise over St. Joseph's Bay. Wifi and free-long distance calls are included.

Lion's Paw is adjacent to St. Joseph's State Park, a mecca for scalloping, fishing, shelling, sunning, and boating. Named Dr. Beach's #1 Beach in 2004, the beach at Sunset Pointe consists of sugar white sands, large dunes, world-class shells, breathtaking sunsets, and daily dolphin sightings. Just a short 5 minute walk across a beautiful wooden boardwalk where you chance to spot an owl, deer, eagle, or maybe even a bobcat, brings you to the beach. Don't forget to grab the four beach chairs for the ultimate in relaxation for your day at the beach.

Sunset Pointe at Secluded Dunes is where you can truly get away from it all. Enclosed in a private gated community on a spectacular natural Florida wetland, your family will make many memories here. After a day in the sun with your toes in the sand, stop by the gated private pool to cool off.

On the Cape, there are two grocery and sundry stores to provide you with all your needs for your stay in Lion's Paw. If you are hankering for top-notch, world-famous seafood, just a quick jaunt into Port St. Joe or Apalachicola will satisfy your cravings. Indian Pass Raw Bar, commonly featured in Southern Living and Garden & Gun offers a unique local experience that you'll never forget.

If you tire of lying in the sun, Port St. Joe provides boat rentals, deep-sea fishing trips, scalloping adventures, and more. Apalachicola boasts many charming shops and incredible restaurants, making for a fun afternoon trip.

About Cindy Trubee

Mike & Elaine, high-school sweethearts who have been married for 37 years, are beach lovers. Elaine enjoys shelling the shores of the Cape and Mike's favorite activity is long walks to the tip of the Cape. Their 2 grown children, Michelle & Mark, love visiting Cape San Blas with their spouses. We all love relaxing and enjoying each others company at beautiful Sunset Pointe.

Cindy Trubee purchased this house in 2007

Why Cindy Trubee chose North West Florida

We chose Lion's Paw because of it's secluded and breathtaking location. The 'Real Florida' wetlands that the home is located on and the short walk to the pristine beaches offer a all-encompassing idea of what Florida truly is.

What makes this house unique

Named Lion's Paw after the famous children's novel by Robb White, Elaine has worked hard to instill a bit of the classic tale in the home. Children and adults alike will love the 'ship bunk room' on the second floor. Hanging beds and a rounded ceiling will transport you inside the pages of 'The Lion's Paw.' While you are enjoying the beach, bring along our provided copy of the novel and you'll fall in love with the story, too. Perhaps you will even discover a Lion's Paw shell or two hidden around the home.

Lion's Paw

Very lovely home! Well equipped and spacious for our family of eight. We enjoyed the modern kitchen, and dinning area. We were thrilled with the front porch and rocking chairs and the screened back porch! You can hear the waves crashing at night from the back screened porch. The house was very accessible for my elderly mother, which was a plus for us. We would definitely love to stay there again.

Gorgeous home. This house is for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Everything was ready for a beautiful stay. We were scheduled for 5 days and 4 nights but unfortunately one of us had an accident. Slipped on the beautiful polished wood floor and broke my leg. Had to cut the trip short, but enjoyed the short time anyway. I would love to try it again sometime.

Thanks.

PS. We stopped at scallops cove to see if we could buy a paddle since we left out kayak paddle at home. They told us they would be glad to loan us one. Just return it when we were done. No charge at all. What nice trusting people.

Owner's Response: Lions Paw is definitely everything you described and we appreciate your sharing you experience! And, as you mentioned, everyone at the cape has a very "home town" attitude and everyone helps each other - whether you are a "local" or not! We do hope that you come back as soon as you can!

Loved this beautiful home! Loved this vacation location!

This home was perfect! What a beautiful and wonderfully decorated beach house. This house was furnished with every amenity needed and it was the perfect size for our family; my husband and I, our 3 daughters, their spouses and 2 babies. There was plenty of space in this home for our family to sit and enjoy each other's company or to simply find a quiet space for reading or enjoying a cup of coffee. Our family also enjoyed the seclusion and privacy that this vacation home and vacation location provided. The home was well maintained and the managers were quickly responsive to every need/request that we had. It is definitely on the list of one of our favorite vacation rentals!

Wonderful time at Lion's Paw

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Lions Paw, it was very well equipped with all the items you would normally need at home. The outdoor space was really nice. The front and back porches were wonderful to sit on at night and talk with friends. The rooms were very nice size, you didn't feel cramped as I have in other places. Nice neighborhood and short walk to the pool. Would definitely stay here again.

Family Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

What a great week we enjoyed at Lion's Paw. This is a wonderful house!!! The lay out is fantastic, the furnishing are adorable and it has everything you need. When not at the beach, we thoroughly enjoyed both the front and back porches. The front porch provided morning sun and the back screen porch was amazing in the evenings. We loved sitting out there hearing all the wildlife. The house is very roomy and was great when we entertained a couple of other families. We loved how private this property was. Not one noise at night but the bullfrogs. The beach is a little bit of a walk, but not a real big deal. Once at the beach, it is very quite with not a lot of people. Overall, it was a fabulous family vacation and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
