Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Dig your toes in the beautiful, sugar-like sand situated in front of our luxurious beach home. Effortlessly walk down the boardwalk from the yard, and nestle yourself in a chair on the dunes to enjoy breath-taking views of the subtle waves and the ever-changing sunsets, or grab something to drink and hang out on our covered porch with breathtaking views. Easy travel to the two great beach towns of Apalachicola and Port St Joe.

Bask in the endless sunshine and cool off in the warm waters of the gulf of mexico & cape san blas. Stroll the miles of beach, ride horses along the tides, or drive your vehicle to the end of the cape to see this beautiful place in all directions. At night, cozy up to a bonfire on the beach and enjoy a margarita!

Our relaxing beach home offers serenity at its finest and desolate beaches galore. Bring your friends and family for a weekend of combing the beach for thousands of seashells and keep an eye out for the playful dolphins or the two beautiful bald eagles that frequent our beach, all while relaxing on the screened lanai listening to the peaceful waves.

Our newly renovated home features an entirely updated interior and exterior, all new furniture and beach-themed décor. With two master bedrooms, showcasing king size beds, and a guest bedroom providing a full/twin size bunk bed and trundle bed, there is enough space for everyone. Both master bedrooms feature private decks overlooking the beach. With a quiet entryway suitable for reading and relaxation, as well as a desk and study area, the beach home offers a place to unwind. Vaulted-ceilings and an open floor plan consisting of the large living room, upscale dining area, and optimal kitchen space, make our home perfect for conversing and entertainment.

Park your vehicles under the carport, big enough for two vehicles, and plenty more in the driveway. Rinse off the sand from your feet and the silt in your suit with the outdoor shower, leaving behind any potential messes outside.

Get all your food and supplies in port st. Joe or apalachicola at one of the several grocery stores and convenience stores. Dine at one of the local restaurants offering a variety of selections or sip on some wine at the local wine bar. Cape san blas is a short drive away, where you can check out the scenic beaches, and enjoy the surreal sunsets. Also, nearby is the quaint town of apalachicola, providing great shopping where you can purchase art, décor, souvenirs, and silly knick-knacks. Don’t forget to purchase fresh seafood, and to take a scenic stroll along the tree-lined streets.

Only 5 miles away, enjoy a charter fishing boat and go deep sea fishing where you can not only see dolphins and sharks, but keep the fish you catch and eat them for dinner. Looking for more to do? You can also take a shuttle to the remote island of st. Vincent, where you may see the exotic sandbar deer and numerous species of birds and wildlife. Try to identify the extensive array of vegetation and explore the rugged terrain with optimal views of the forgotten coast. With panama city beach, less than an hour away, feel free to explore the city during its quiet season or set out to watch spring breakers party.

With a variety of options, you’ll have a chance to peacefully enjoy the beach from the home, or set out to explore new towns nearby.

This newly renovated home is certainly a real treasure.

Guest access

Beautiful beachfront home with direct access to the beach with miles of sand right at your feet.

Interaction with guests

We help guests with everything that may need before, during and after their stay with us but let guests enjoy their stay at the home without interruption.

The neighborhood

It is peaceful, quite, and the beaches are deserted. Even in the peak of summer, our beach isn't crowded because most of the homes in the area are second homes and not rented. If you are looking for lots of action on the beach, this isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing vacation with a dog-friendly beach and friendly neighbors, this is the place you want to be.

About Kate & Garrett

My husband and I are serial entrepreneurs currently living in the Silicon Valley. While we have traveled all around the world, the Cape San Blas area and beaches create a sense of tranquility and seclusion, which is unlike any other place. When we're not working feverishly, we're on the beach enjoying the sugar-like sand, watching for dolphins and eagles from our porch, and dipping into warm ocean water during the summer. We also LOVE the 'off season' because it's quiet, relaxing, and there's always a good sunset to catch- it's the best time to visit the house.

Kate & Garrett purchased this house in 2013

Why Kate & Garrett chose Port St. Joe

We bought our home near Cape San Blas in 2013 and immediately started renovating and remodeling the home, bringing all the luxuries of home, to our beach home. We fell in love with ocean, the tranquility, and the amazing sunsets years ago, while visiting my husband's family over the holidays two years ago. While we have traveled all over the world, we've found that the Cape San Blas area is one of our favorite places to be! Owning this home is our dream come true, and we look forward to sharing it with your family!

What makes this house unique

With the gorgeous and surreal daily sunsets, an unforgettable view of the beach and ocean, and the opportunity to see wild dolphins, countless species of birds, and the ability to comb the beach for sand dollars and shells at a moments notice, buying this home was one of the most satisfying decisions we made.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for us - everything about it was exceptionally nice. I loved the well appointed kitchen with nice appliances. The screened in porch was awesome. The view was spectacular and the beach was inviting. We had perfect weather, and even took a horseback ride on the beach.

The best beach vacation to date!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Kate's beach house. The house has been lovingly taken care of and feels like a second home --not a rental. Everything was basically brand new in the house when we arrived. The covered living space outside was so nice. I will never rent another home without it. Kate was a gracious host and checked in with us throughout our trip. We already booked our trip back next year. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home!

Ps. The beach gear included was such a bonus for us. We had bikes, Beach chairs and more that we didn't need to bring ourselves. We were so thankful.

The best rental on the street

  • 5 of 5

We have rented on this street multiple times and this is by far the best home. Kate really cares about her guests and we had incredible service the whole time we stayed. If we had a question, she wrote back to us or called us back within minutes. The house comes with everything you need for an amazing time. The house includes 4 really nice beach cruiser bikes, a fishing cart to take your stuff to the beach (even if you don't fish you can still use it to take your chairs out, etc), sand toys for the kids (we didn't use this as we didn't have kids with us but it was nice to have), boogie boards, etc. The house has BRAND NEW furnishings in it. This is NOT your typical vacation rental. The owners seem to really care and if anything is not right, they will replace it. The outdoor living space is incredible and we had so much fun watching the dolphins every day with our cup of coffee. Far and away the best house in the neighborhood to rent. This neighborhood is very high end and you'll feel it the moment you drive up.

Beautiful. Wonderful. Relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

I am so very happy that we booked this home and that we stayed here as a family. It is an amazing spot, and the home is extremely comfortable. The neighborhood is quiet and VERY nice. It comes with everything you need - bikes, beach chairs, etc. All you have to do is relax. And we did! I recommend this home. If I could give TWENTY stars, I would.

This house was exactly as listed. We enjoyed everything about it, especially the 2 minute walk to the beach. Lovely & update to date furnishings, beach gear, and the owner was very easy to work with. We hope to go back!

Relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

The property is amazing. It is located on the beach in a quiet neighborhood! The house has a cute beach decor with a fabulous screened porch. Most of our time not on the beach was spent on the porch!! The kitchen was well stocked with essential kitchen items in great condition. I would highly recommend this wonderful retreat!!

Best Vacation EVERRRRR!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best vacation ever. We stayed at this Oceanfront Utopia for a week in November and had an absolute blast! I can't even begin to tell you all of the wonderful things about our trip. First, we showed up to a well lit, very clean home. We came inside and instantly fell in love. The layout is wonderful for a family who is traveling together - multigenerational. We had the grandparents in one room, we had the other master and the kids were in the bunk room. All of the beds were really comfortable and the furnishings are high end. We absolutely loved the covered porch. We sat out there every day with our coffee watching the kids play. The dog loved the beach - I've never seen her so happy to just run and have fun. You are supposed to have your dogs on leash but when there is nobody on the beach, it's easy to let the dog off and let them run.

Hands down best vacation. We already booked for next year!
