Property description

Open space, private - a mellow place to soothe the mind and find peace, joy and restoration. No crowds, mega-resorts, glitzy nightlife, instead - breathing room with easy access to water and wildlife. A 2014 travel magazine has named Cape San Blas one of Florida's best dive destinations. Hiking trails in the state park and a 9 mile paved bike path are nearby. A general store rents bikes and kayaks in addition to selling food, drinks and ice.

'Cape Ann' sits low in the landscape blending with surrounding environment - creating a sense of unity with nature.

Our home is in the gated section known as Secluded Dunes, adjacent to the 2,500 acre St. Joseph Peninsula State Park - offering 10 miles of undeveloped coast and 35 foot high sand dunes. It borders the state park designated wilderness preserve where a variety of animals and birds share the space. Part of the charm and fun of 'Cape Ann' - not too fancy, too upscale, too perfect - but, having a calm, comfortable, 'welcome to the beach' essence.

The west side of the property opens to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico displaying the wide beach of sugar white sand and sparkling emerald water. Giant loggerhead turtles select the cape for nesting. Most days you will see dolphins playing off shore and pelicans, sandpipers, and sea gulls sharing the neighborhood. This is the perfect spot to watch the sun drop silently into the gulf. Following the sunset, an amazing stargazing opportunity awaits. Shrimp boats are often seen working off shore.

The gulf side of 'Cape Ann'' features a spacious screened porch. A covered porch runs across the front with a piney woods view. Deer enjoy munching on the lush vegetation which includes beach scrub, live oaks and sabal palms.

'Cape Ann'' is a great choice for families who value serenity and natural beauty. It is convenient (ALL ON ONE LEVEL) and inviting with simplicity and ease. When the time is right for a quiet retreat with the sand, sea and sky, you have found the place!

'Cape Ann' is SMOKEFREE, NO PETS ALLOWED and has an Age Restriction. No reservations accepted for vacationing students or singles under age 25 unless accompanied by adult legal guardian or parent during entire stay. Chaperoned groups not accepted. Restrictions apply regarding number of people that may accompany parent or legal guardian. Our home is on a Sun. to Sun. schedule for Peak Season. If you need a Sat. to Sat. rental, we recommend 'Cape Refreshment' www.vrbo.com/250217 on the cape or our home at Carillon Beach www.vrbo.com/33566.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Owners are sisters who had rented vacation homes in the area several years. It was always fun getting together at a beach house.

Why the Owner Chose Secluded Dunes:
The Secluded Dunes section of cape offers what we love - privacy, seclusion, natural beauty and quiet space. The name Cape Ann is in memory of our mom and happy times with her at the cape.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was designed with comfort in mind. One flight of stairs up from the carport and then everything is on one level. Bedrooms are separated nicely for privacy. Two bedrooms have own bath, two other bedrooms share Jack and Jill style bath. Kitchen is quite large with pantry storage. There is a pleasing piney woods view from window above sink. Screened gulf side porch has beautiful view of beach and gorgeous sand dune with wind-swept vegetation.
