** FREE FUN PASS** See Details below

TROPICAL BREEZE is a luxury beachfront home with an incredible view of beautiful, white sand beaches and natural sand dunes, where dolphins can be seen close to shore almost daily. Tropical Breeze is located 1/4 mile from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, rated #1 beach in the USA. This wonderful park, not only has an award winning beach, but offers nature trails, scalloping, fishing, bird watching and is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling and biking.

A great deal of love and attention to detail has gone into making this your perfect home away from home. The house is furnished with the feel of the West Indies, dark wood furniture, a fireplace and soft oversize sofas with accents of palm trees and seashells, all in a light and airy atmosphere. The kitchen is full size, with a complete selection of appliances, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and features Mikasa seashell dishes. No mismatched anything in this kitchen. Everything is in place to make it a pleasure to cook in this fully equipped kitchen.

The beach side of Tropical Breeze features a lower screen porch, furnished in white wicker that includes a rocking chair, love seat, wicker chair and a breakfast/game table. There is also a large upper porch with 4 chaise lounges. A view of the sunset and beach can be enjoyed from either level. Each of the 4 bedrooms has it's own bathroom, tv and it's own name. The master suite is 'White Sands' and features a 4 poster, king size bed, executive desk, 46' Flat screen TV, WI-FI, Gulf view, deck and an oversize bath with his and her vanities, large glass shower and Jacuzzi tub.

The second master is 'Kings Crown', includes a king size Victorian bed, 32' led flat screen TV and a gulf view. 'Palm Paradise' is located on the main floor, with a queen size, sleigh bed, a large Jacuzzi tub and a view of the sunrise. 'Under the Sea' is decorated with a tropical fish theme and has 2 sets of bunk beds, full on the bottom and twin on the top.

Also for the kids or kids at heart, we have our 'Beach Club' on the large patio under the house, which includes an outdoor ping pong table, seating area, gas grill and an outdoor enclosed hot water shower. This house offers a large selection of areas to sneak away for an hour or two. Take a book to the upper porch for a nice read and maybe an afternoon nap or head down to the 'Beach Club' for a competitive game of ping pong.

Put together a puzzle or play a game of cards on the screen porch. Catch up with your special someone, on a nice stroll down the beach to the park, and on the way back, bond with your kids or grand kids over a sand castle. Float on a raft in the Gulf or cast a line into the surf to catch your dinner. You can watch your favorite sports team or a great movie on our new 60' LED flat screen TV or one of the other 4 TV's. An elevator is available for anyone who may need help with stairs. It is additionally available for all others, to assist in checking-in and checking out. This will be a vacation you will want to repeat often! We look forward to having you stay at Tropical Breeze.

If you are in need of additional space for a larger group, it may be possible to rent one or both of the 4 bedroom homes next to Tropical Breeze. The three homes combined could accommodate 35 people.

Tropical Breeze is a NON SMOKING property and does NOT allow pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Tropical Breeze is owned by 2 families from Atlanta, the Newmans and the Pridemores (pictured). Our children went to elementary school together and when we found this great house we formed a partnership. Our daughters are much older now and both families have enjoyed many happy days at A Tropical Breeze.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
The Pridemores heard that Cape San Blas was named the #1 beach in the USA, including Hawaii, in 2002. A trip was immediately scheduled to see the area. A Tropical Breeze was way out of our price range, but we loved it so much we videotaped it and went back to talk to friends and neighbors about a partnership. Fortunately, the Newmans were in the market for investment property and our partnership was formed. The home was first seen on July 3rd, 2002 and we were owners by August 24, 2002. It's been a magical ten years and we have been fortunate to have many happy repeat guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are so many, but some of our favorites are the great fishing on the beach and in the bay, the peacefulness and lack of crowds, the sunsets over the Gulf right in front of the house, incredible fishing and scalloping, Coneheads ice cream store, bonfires on the beach, dolphins and seashells.
