About Dana Langford

Mare Vista is a brand new home built to the most exacting, custom standards by Langford Construction, known as the 'People Builders' for excellence in construction, design and comfort. Steve and Dana are now local residents after moving from Georgia where Steve was in the construction business for 40 years. They have 2 daughters, Mary Ann (Mare) and Dagny. Hence, 'Mare Vista'-Italian for Sea View. The Langfords have settled into Cape living and are involved in the community. They are usually seen riding their bikes on the 9 mile bike path and checking on their job sites.

Dana Langford purchased this house in 2015

Why Dana Langford chose North West Florida

Mare Vista was designed by local Architect, Chuck Wright, with your ultimate comfort in mind. 4 large bedrooms, each with large PRIVATE baths. There are screened porches on both levels offering magnificent views of the bay. Perfect corners to relax on a chaise, enjoy sunrise and coffee. Mare Vista offers every amenity. ... Living is easy with a gourmet kitchen and a great room to share those special family times. This home also comes with its own 17' INFINITY SWIMMING SPA which seats 10 as a hot tub or pool. A unique treat! ... Get your exercise in the privacy of your home or have a happy splash with the entire family.

What makes this house unique

Park Point @ Secluded Dunes is magical. It's smaller, tucked away, exclusive and quiet ... While we were building Mare Vista, we'd end the day in a trance listening to the wildlife and watching the twinkling lights of Port St. Joe come into sight as darkness fell, reminding us of our other favorite place, Positano, on the Amalfi coast in Italy.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

We had three families, all with kids under 3 years old. Each couple had their own bathroom attached to their bedroom, and there was a fourth room with bunk beds. The layout was perfect. We were able to stay up and have a good time while the kids were asleep. The screened porch on the front of the house is basically child-proof, so the kids were able to play out there without getting into trouble. The hosts were amazing and accommodating. The swim spa is just about the most amazing thing ever. It's the size of three hot tubs and everyone and the kids were able to swim without being crowded. We visited in January and the weather was gorgeous. We highly recommend Mare Vista and we'll be back!

AMAZINGLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a long weekend with friends and the house was perfect!! There was plenty of room for us four adults and our kids, as well as the fur babies!! My daughter loved the bunk beds, and all of the bedrooms were beyond spacious and very comfortable!! The views were beautiful from every spot in the house!! The swim spa is the perfect way to end the night!! The house was VERY VERY CLEAN!! It has close access to the beach, as well as the state park. There is a cute little general store about five minutes down the road in case you forgot anything. I would highly recommend this house to anyone, and I can't wait to hopefully go back again soon!!

Absolutely Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of six adults and three kids and Mare Vista accommodated us to perfection. The layout is exactly what we needed and provided ample space for cooking, kids playing, watching movies, and for our dogs. The house was SUPER CLEAN! The beds are so comfortable, firm and soft! Great sheets and towels. The swim spa is amazing. Everyone enjoyed it! The opted to get the golf cart and it was definitely worth it! It provided easy trips over to the beach access. The owners are close by and so nice and accommodating. If you need anything just text them and they will get right on it! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Can't wait until next year! Oh and January was perfect weather!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 4 nights at Mare Vista with my husband, our two sons (20months and 7 weeks old), brother, mom and step father for my moms 60th bday. A wonderful time was had by all. The home was beautiful, comfortable and the perfect size for our family. We never left the neighborhood once we arrived (except to get ice and a few things we forgot at the local general store only a few miles down the road) - the home had everything we needed to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed how private the neighborhood and beach was - we took family walks after dinner each night, played baseball on the beach during the day, cards at night, indulged in the endless spa, and drank a ton of coffee/wine sitting on the balcony porch. We did rent a golf cart which was great to get to and from beach quickly and also was just another means to entertain our toddler 😊򒠠- I would recommend others to rent if they have young children or elderly parents since the beach is a little walk away. We are already talking about making this a yearly trip for our family since there is a ton more to explore on the Cape as our boys grow 😊򒠠Overall, if you are looking for a nice home on the Cape this is the one to rent! Also, we couldn't say enough about the owners. Had one little hiccup and they took care of it right away! Can't wait till next time!

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The convenience of the property to the State Park, the beach and all the amenities this home offers is a few of the reasons I'd recommend it if you love Cape San Blas and both the use of the beach and the bay.

Relaxing family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely gorgeous; love the way the bedrooms are located around the great room. Everything was very clean and the house is beautifully maintained. The swim spa is great, especially when visiting during the winter. There were bicycles and beach toys for our use as well as access to the community pool. Our family enjoyed spending Christmas at the beach and I even managed to prepare a traditional holiday dinner in the well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed our location between the nearby state park with its quiet bay and the gulf beach begging us to take sunset walks. We had a great time! And I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is considering renting it.

Cape San Blas
Car: necessary

Cape san blas has its own worry-free character with miles of shell-strewn shoreline and countless opportunities for quiet adventures.

Cape san blas is a 17-mile long barrier peninsula, curving around st. Joseph bay offering playful surf and white sand beaches on the gulf side and smooth, shallow water on the bay side. The cape is known for its clear, sometimes blue, sometimes green water and low, gentle surf. Families who vacation on the cape choose this spot for both its beauty and its seclusion. Drag a chair to the beach with a book, throw a line to the surf, or comb the shore for treasures. Scattered with shells, the sand in this quiet paradise is super soft and sparkling white.

Tired of relaxing? Peddle, walk or jog along loggerhead run bike trail for a different view. Browse through eclectic beach stores, cool off with some ice cream or grab a few pounds of bay shrimp to steam while you watch the sun go down.

Looking for something more adventurous? Local outfitters will get you rigged. Horseback riding is available on the beach and guided tours are offered daily. Canoe, kayak and sailboat rentals are available as well as diving, snorkeling and eco-excursions.

Take the time to explore the bay. Wade through grassy flats, kayak with your kids and glide above two feet of water for miles. The clear, shallow water offers hours of safe play and discovery for little ones as well as adults. Sand dollars, starfish, scallops and schools of colorful fish are fun to find... Ten times more fun with a snorkel and mask!

Mare vista is at the tip of cape san blas adjacent to st. Joseph peninsula state park, home of america’s #1-ranked beach and america’s best state park!

Recognized as perhaps the most popular outdoor destination in the entire florida state park system. With miles of sugar-white sand beaches, striking coastal dune formations, nature trails, picnic areas, playground, 119 family camp sites, youth camping area, boat ramp, 1,900 acre wilderness preserve and more... It’s not hard to imagine why.

Hiking, walking and nature viewing is enjoyable on the two nature trails and 14 mile hiking trail through the wilderness preserve for you to explore and observe the various wildlife and plant communities. Many varieties of birds, mammals, and plants inhabit the park. White-tailed deer are the most observed, but bobcats, raccoons, otters, and alligators can be seen.

The excellent fishing opportunities for sea trout, redfish, flounder, pompano and whiting attract many fishermen to the area. Come during scallop season (july 1 - september 24) and catch your own bay scallops; it is great family fun and our bay scallops are some of the most delicious things you will ever eat!

If you want to relax and do nothing, check out eagle harbor. It is a popular hang-out area of the park with boat launch, small store with essentials, water toy rentals like kayaks, and one of the coolest viewpoints in all of gulf county! Walk up the boardwalk and take in the 360-degree view of st. Joseph bay on one side and the clear waters of the gulf beach on the other side. Both are great spots to put up your umbrella and let the kids play in the water.
