About Mary Mardan

We bought this property to use as our winter home when we retire. We hope to escape the Midwest winters and enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of the beautiful Cape San Blas area .

Mary Mardan purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Mary Mardan chose Port St. Joe

We looked for a long time and in many different areas for a special place that could offer us: natural beauty, close access to the water, unbelievable beaches, fantastic views, great seafood, plenty of space for family and friends, very safe, and pet friendly. We have found all this and more! My favorite place is on the 4th floor screened porch drinking coffee In the morning or just watching the waves anytime.....

What makes this townhome unique

The location of this townhouse in the complex was a huge draw for me . The fact that it was an end unit with windows on 3 sides really opens up the rooms and provides much better views. The location is also very close to the beach (100 steps) and directly across from the pool (25 steps). Town house D-20

Cape San Blas is an are of incredible beauty beauty which is still very rural. We enjoy horseback riding and bonfires on our beach with beautiful Gulf views.. we are adjacent to St Joseph Peninsula State Park which has wonderful trails for hiking and biking. The dunes on the Cape are protected for nesting sea turtles. Ecotourism is what we are all about!

Beautiful home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

The Sanctuary is in a great location, in addition to being a beautiful home. It was very clean and when something came up, Mary and Michelle were very attentive fixed the problem quickly. The cabana on the first floor is a life saver!

Best place we have stayed on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

This rental has so many nice extras that make you feel right at home. The elevator is so helpful for unpacking and packing. Just send all your bags right up and down it. The Cabana is a huge bonus. All of our outdoor gear felt so much more secure being kept inside it. Plus there are plenty of beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, and a wagon for your use. We wish we hadn't brought our own stuff. The pool is so close that it felt like our own private pool. The walk to the beach is very manageable even with kids, wagons, umbrellas or whatever else you are toting back-n-forth. It's not a bad walk at all. It basically felt like one of the beach front units because everyone has to use the boardwalk anyway to get onto the beach. The views from the decks and living room windows make you feel like you are right on the sand. The hammocks are super relaxing and a bonus to have when you just need some down time. The kitchen is fully stocked. We used both coffee makers and the croc pot. What a surprise to find things like soap and salt n pepper already there for us. The home owner is very accommodating and makes you feel like her personal guest. She is easy to contact and responds quickly. Thank you for making your place available for others to enjoy.

Cape San Blas vacation at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 adults enjoyed a week in this beautiful property! Across from the pool with ocean views and short boardwalk walk to beach can't be beat. This unit has 4 bedrooms and 4 ensuite baths, spacious living with updated kitchen area. Comfortable, roomy, everything you need for a perfect week at the beach!

Warm and Inviting

  • 5 of 5

This home is so welcoming! Beautiful view from every room, no matter where you are on any of the 4 floors. Perfectly equipped with an ideal location; close to the beach but quiet beach town. The owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns, before, during and and after our stay. We were made to feel like this was our home for the week, including all the small and large amenities. We were even provided Aunt Marion's waffle recipe....yummmm!!!! Would definitely return and highly recommend to anyone looking for a week or two of fun in the sun. Definitely 5 stars!!

Spacious home in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This home is a very short walk to an excellent beach and a short distance from St. Joseph State Park-- perfect for our active, nature loving group. The inside is comfortable and spacious- we had 6 adults and 4 kids and had plenty of room. Mary has the home well stocked with everything you might need. Great views and balconies- perfect spot for reading or lounging. The adults in our group gathered there every night.

Excellent vacation and we look forward to returning.
