About Rick Thomas

Having spent our youthful years growing up spending summers on the coast, we found ourselves drawn back "home" nearly full-time. Both of us grew up together in south Georgia, then drifted as adults moving on to raise our respective families. We re-connected a few years ago when life found each of us 'single'. In 2015 we got married right here on our beach. Now we spend our time between our farm in north Florida and Cape San Blas.

Rick Thomas purchased this condo in 2016

Why Rick Thomas chose Port St. Joe

We bought our residence on Cape San Blas a few years ago. We have fallen in love with this area making wonderful new friends and becoming a part of the community. As retirement enters the picture and because of our love for The Cape and this special part of the Gulf coast, buying another property to renovate and create another "home" to share with others became an obvious course for us.

What makes this condo unique

The particular location of Mermaid Crossing offers many treasured features. It is a very family-friendly area in a small private condo complex. In addition to warm greetings from neighbors, the comforts are plentiful. Your large balcony overlooks the Gulf with glass doors all across the front for beautiful views no matter the weather which is most often outstanding! Likewise the master bedroom has its own balcony and sliding glass door facing the Gulf. Sleep with doors and windows open and listen to the surf all night! Stars fill the expansive view of the sky with no city lights to interfere. All our living spaces are tastefully and creatively decorated and furnished with your comfort and pleasure in mind along with a well equipped kitchen for your cooking enjoyment. We feel it is a big step above the average rental experience and expectations. We hope you agree and will visit again and again!

Beautiful condo in a quiet, secluded area of Cape San Blas!

  • 5 of 5

Mermaid Crossing was one of the nicest beach rentals we have experienced. The kitchen was extremely complete. Beautiful, beachy decor, including a very cool and unique dining table. We loved the big porch balcony and the Gulf view. The owners provide big thick beach towels, nice beach chairs, and a beach cart to tote everything to the beach. There is a pool and hot tub for the condos and a private board walk to the beach. close by are the Scallop RePUBlic Bar with live music nightly and the Indian Pass Raw Bar. Lovely place! Great for a family group of six.

We had a wonderful stay in unit 1D, which was well-appointed and very comfortable for our family of four plus our teenagers' two friends. The owners are extremely nice, very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The unit has great access to the beach and a very nice pool and hot tub. We really enjoyed our first trip to Cape San Blas, and found it to be much more relaxing than some other places like Rosemary Beach. All of the island vendors and restaurants provide great service and are extremely friendly, especially the folks at San Flea Rentals. We can't wait to retreat there again!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The condo and the amenities were exactly what we were looking for. Sherry was very helpful throughout the stay with any questions or issues. The unit was very nice it was exactly as advertised in the photos. It was well appointed with everything you need for the stay. The beach cart and chairs were great to have as well. Would not think twice about booking this trip again.

Amazing family vacation !

  • 5 of 5

This property was beautiful. My family of five enjoyed our gulf coast Florida vacation, the beautiful condo, relatively private beach, good restaurants, and a great view of nature. The condo met all our expectations (spacious, all the amenities, beautifully decorated, quiet, private, covered parking, pool/spa).

We will for sure be back!

Absolutely The Best Rental On Cape San Blas

  • 5 of 5

I have spent the past nine winters as a snowbird on Cape San Blas and this is, by far, the best property I’ve ever rented during that time. The location is ideal – gulf front and only steps away from the beach. The unit has two decks overlooking the water. I especially like the smaller deck in the master bedroom which is bordered by pine trees while still offering a great ocean view.

This three-bedroom unit is spacious enough to accommodate a family gathering yet cozy enough for a smaller group or couple. Every comfort and convenience has been provided from the wide screen TVs to the plush furniture and unique upscale decorating touches throughout. For renters who like to cook, the kitchen has been restocked with new glassware, dishes, pots, pans, and cutlery.

Unlike many other properties on the cape, this unit offers a high speed Wi-Fi modem and free long distance calling. Condo amenities include use of the building’s swimming pool and hot tub.

A final bonus is The Club’s close proximity to Port St. Joe. Town is only ten minutes away for convenient shopping but far enough away not to disturb the tranquility of this vacation paradise.

The owners are attentive property managers and eager to ensure their guests have a wonderful experience in this beautiful natural environment. I highly recommend this property.
