Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Port Saint Joe - San Dawgs

4 bedroom(2 kings), beach & bay views, pool, screened porch w swing, sand box.

SanDawgs is a great, lst tier family friendly home with 4 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, a private saltwater pool, and even a sand box. It is one of the best lst tier locations on the Cape with great, unobstructed views of the beach for breathtaking sunsets viewable from the screened porch or decks, as well as a morning view of the bay that’s great for watching the sun rise from the back porch. Free Wi-Fi, cable, a well-stocked kitchen with stainless appliances and granite countertops, outside charcoal grill, two porch swings, screened porch, open deck on 3rd floor with tall Adirondack chairs, open porch area on ground floor, and comfortable pool furniture will add to a great beach vacation. In the house you will find games, books, DVD players, TVs in all bedrooms, large TV in living room, and board games.

The open floor plan with hardwood floors in the living areas, tile in the downstairs entrance area and carpet in the bedrooms add to the comfort. Bathrooms are attractively tiled and feature two (2) bath tub/shower combinations, one (1) walk in shower and one (1) half bath. The downstairs bathroom is accessible from the pool, which is much more convenient than you might imagine.

San Dawgs is the gray house with red doors located mid way the cape, .3 of a mile past the Scallop Cove station, and affords easy access to St. Joseph Peninsular State Park, rated #1 beach in the USA. This wonderful area not only has award winning beaches, but offers nature trails, bird watching, horseback riding, golf, frequent sightings of dolphins, wonderful seafood restaurants and shopping in nearby Apalachicola and Port St Joe, and is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling, scalloping, fishing and biking on the new bike path.

A great deal of love and attention was given to SanDawgs by the three owner families. We designed it to be a comfortable home away from home for us and our families, and we think it will be for yours as well. The house has an easy coastal décor with soothing colors and comfortable furniture.

The bottom floor includes a single carport, an open covered porch, access to pool and sand box, outside shower with hot and cold water, and ample parking area for several vehicles. Inside is a queen sized bedroom, separate full bath with walk in shower, washer and dryer.

2nd floor features a screened porch with a swing, wicker furniture, and bistro table and chairs on porch, half bath, and an open concept living , dining, and kitchen area. The large bar is great for serving and entertaining, and the dining area can seat 12.

The third floor features a master bedroom with king sized bed and private bath (tub shower combination) with french doors to the open deck for breathtaking views of the beach and gulf. You can wake up in the morning and lie in bed and watch for dolphins in the gulf. It makes an awesome beginning to your day. A second bedroom also has a king sized bed with French doors that open to the open deck, and it shares a jack and Jill bath with a tub shower. A third bedroom has 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4), and it shares the jack and jill bath (tub shower combination).

You have free long distance, and all bedrooms have TVs with cable. A short walk to the beach, there is a dedicated board walk that puts you right on the beautiful white sandy beach. An ample supply of bed linens and towels are included, as well as professional cleaning after each visitor.

Come enjoy San Dawgs – have fun in the private pool or sand box, get sand between your toes on the secluded beaches, enjoy the shells and discover the turtle nests (but please do not disturb), take a bike ride, go fishing in the Gulf, scalloping in the bay, or just enjoy the sunshine around the pool while you grill a hamburger on the charcoal grill. You might even walk down to the nearby Trading Post and enjoy an ice cream or hot doughnuts (the hot fried croissants are to die for)!

San Dawgs is definitely a place to totally relax. Enjoy, and take home lots of memories!

About Evera and T E Moye

SanDawgs is owned by three families, and we all are avid GA Bulldog fans, hence the name San Dawgs! We all have connections to the University of GA, but we will gladly rent to any gators and even tigers! We all love the beach and have enjoyed sharing our beautiful beach house with our grown children and grandchildren.

Evera and T E Moye purchased this house in 2009

Why Evera and T E Moye chose North West Florida

Cape San Blas is the epitome of the perfect beach - never crowded, beautiful water and sand, gulf and the bay, and all provide a great opportunity to enjoy nature at its finest. Occasional dolphin sightings and sea turtle nests add interest to our visits. The sand is especially easy for walking.

2 weeks in paradise in the perfect home

  • 5 of 5

My family has visited Cape San Blas with our extended family every year for the past 5 years. We rent one beach house for two weeks, so that my husband's family can join us the 1st week, and my family can join us the 2nd week. This was by far our favorite home we have stayed in. It was in a perfect location - super close to The Trading Post, but in a quiet area. The house was decorated and furnished in a way that it could be your real home, and everything was in excellent condition. We loved the large living area open to the kitchen the most (was larger than we expected from the pics). The swing on the screened in porch was lovely, and the chairs on the upstairs porch were very nice. We loved having 2 king beds upstairs, and the grandparents enjoyed staying on the first floor where it was nice and quiet. We swam every day in the pool for hours and loved having a table with umbrella down there for lunches and snacks. We all noted how private the pool felt with the nice shrubbery around all exposed sides. It was a super easy and fast walk down to the beach where we also spent many hours. Although chairs were not guaranteed, there were 4 chairs in excellent condition there for our stay. There were also boogey boards and 2 awesome rafts the children (and adults) enjoyed all week long. When we phoned Evera (the owner) with questions, she always answered and was kind, friendly, and helpful. It was an especially nice experience getting to work directly with the owner in booking the house and dealing with any issues.

Great for family beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We decided to make a last minute trip to the Cape for spring break. We were lucky enough to stumble upon San Dawgs and the owners were kind enough to allow us to rent for less than a week. This beach home is very comfortable, large enough for us to spread out and have our own space. The kitchen is very well stocked and we found everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The dining table is great for eating and playing games. The living room is very comfortable and we were thrilled to see throw blankets for the colder natured people in our group. Bedrooms are well decorated with comfortable beds and great views. For us, no detail was overlooked. Our kids enjoyed the board games, porch swing, bunk beds, and pool. The adults enjoyed not having to lug our beach gear too far. We were very lucky with the weather since you never know what April will bring. Thanks for sharing your wonderful beach home with our family.

This is a great property to rent. The owners are easy to work with. Furnishings are up to date and very comfortable. The floor plan is open and the kitchen is well stocked with all necessary pots, pans and utensils. We would love to rent this home again.

Clean, close to the beach, great for our family get together

  • 5 of 5

The owners were great to work with. They were prompt at getting back with me and left some beach chairs for us (to make our packing easier). We have 2 young kids, and met my extended family at the house. It was a perfect layout for everyone to hang out but also have their own space when needed. The views of the ocean from the upstairs balconies is gorgeous. We played games on the screened in porch listening to the waves crash...it was amazing! The location was great too. Close by to a couple local shops, but other than that just homes and the ocean so it has a very chill vibe. The house was so close to the beach it made walking with a 2 and 4 year old back and forth super easy and enjoyable. When we left we couldn't find our baby monitor, and when the cleaners found it, the owners said they would mail it to me (it hasn't arrived yet, but was very thoughtful and I hope they follow through.) I would definitely recommend this home for a relaxing beach vacation :-).

San Dawgs is LOVELY

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at San Dawgs. It's a short walk to the beach and there is a boardwalk so you can avoid the sand spurs. Cape San Blas is great for young children as the water is shallow for quite a way out and kids can play in the water and on the sand safely. The house is spaceous and well appointed with a great view of the ocean from levels 2 (screened) and 3. There is no elevator, so coolers and suitcases have to be carried up to the appropriate floor. Our group of 10 included children aged 3-10 and 6 adults. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably (although the mattress in the downstairs bedroom was a little soft for us). The weather was cool and windy for our first few days, so the pool was quite chilly as it is unheated. By mid week things warmed up and everyone enjoyed the convenience of having a pool when we wanted a break from the sand and surf. There is an outside heated shower, which was great when trying to get everyone warmed up and sand free. Parking is ample and the local convenience store/ice cream shop is less than half a mile away (BTW, their prices are quite fair). My only complaint is that cell phone/wifi/cable reception was often poor but this occurs at other locations on the cape as well. This was our 4th family beach trip and one of the best!
