Overview

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 Port St. Joe

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.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a beautiful home, very nicely decorated and furnished. We enjoyed our stay there very much! We were a little disappointed however, with the quality and condition of the kitchenware, particularly the silverware. The unit wasn't very well supplied with dish cloths, dish towels, Kleenex in bathrooms, amenities normally provided in high level rental properties. Also, we couldn't figure out how to operate the gas fireplace . . . need better instructions. With all that said, we would certainly rent there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Lions Paw is a fantastic home and we will share your comments on the kitchen. We have not received those types on comments before, and we know that getting feedback, helps make improvements in the future. Dish towels, etc, are noted in the check in instructions, and we would have been happy to trade out for more during your stay, had we known. The fireplace operation could have also been addressed if you would have reached out to us. One of our partners literally lives right next door and another, in the gulf front section of the community, just a short walk away! We hope you will come back and see us!

Great home for families, close to state park.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful large home to accommodate 3 families. Very nicely decorated and furnished, unlike many beach rentals. The house had pretty much everything you needed. Appreciate very much the wifi as without it would have been out of commission the entire trip. The kids twin bed room was a hit. Good location for us by the state park for easy boat launching. Not a bad walk to the pool or beach. Great neighborhood, the kids rode their bikes around the loop the house is on. Very quiet and safe. We only had one issue and that was the AC upstairs had some trouble. Once we called someone quickly came out and fixed it. No further issues. Loved the covered carport and porches for when it rained we could still hang out outside. Will stay again!
