"Gloriline" at Crescent Palms Beach is absolutely one of the premier homes on Cape San Blas. This truly unique custom built home is a treasure to our forgotten coast. Set back among the Pines for privacy, Gulf-front screened porches overlook the pool area and three other homes on the three acre site. Watch dolphins and the sunset from the private beach access or strolling on the wide beach just below. Most holidays bring no more than 40 or 50 people to the six mile stretch of beach, which is wonderful for shelling.
Guest bedrooms with screened porches have views of the Bay while the master (middle floor) and living (top floor) face out past French doors onto nine feet deep screened porches with views of the Gulf. Sip coffee in the morning while watching and hearing woodpeckers and other birds as they enjoy the Pines. Enjoy lunch or dinner outside with an oscillating Floor Fan on those evenings when the breeze dies down a bit.
Built by one of the best local builders this home meets or exceeds all "GREEN HOME" standards and has earned the State of Florida’s Energy Star rating. This is the perfect property for those with allergies as furniture is hardwood and cabinets are chemical and formaldehyde free built by premier cabinet maker Neil Kelly from Oregon.
Only six miles from St. Joe State Park, this home is perfectly suited for those who want to get away and have peace and privacy but close enough should you want to go out for the day or evening. There are several good restaurants including the famous Owl Café in Apalachicola and Provisions in Port St Joe as well as access to St. Vincent Island Wildlife Preserve and horse riding rentals at Salinas Park just a few steps away from the property. Call Killfish Charters for fishing/diving or just take a couple of beach chairs and a canopy and spend the day enjoying the fish and sun and gentle surf.
There are many beach houses for rent but nothing quite like this elegant yet comfortable home. It is the perfect vacation home for couples and small families. Prepare to be delighted!

We spent our spring break in this wonderful vacation getaway. The house was amazing. Stocked with everything we needed for a full week of fun. The views from any of the several porches is pristine. We wanted privacy on our vacation and we couldn't have asked for any better. The pool is a community pool shared by 5 homes but we had complete privacy. The beach is a wide open beach, very clean sand and lots of room for our dog to play. My family had a spectacular time staying here. I would recommend this house to anyone. The spared no expense when creating this vacation paradise.

Recommended for: Pet owners, romantic getaway, families with teenagers.
We stayed for a month. Living is done on 3rd floor, 3 floors of ceramic stairs and no elevator. All glass top tables including dining table. Not kid friendly. Lots of sand spurrs, ticks, sting rays, horse manure on beach & truck traffic continuously on sand! No mailbox for long term rentals ! Good house for young couple ONLY. No children & no grandparents. Won't be back!

About the owner: Gloriline was built as a private home for the purpose of having family and friends meet and focus on the important things in life - being together. The name derives from our mothers names - Gloria and Angeline. The home is dedicated to the builder "Charles House" who helped make a dream come true.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Cape San Blas is one of the most secluded areas on the beach that you will find in Florida today. Progress, i.e., development, has not caught up to the Forgotten Coast yet making it one of the best kept secrets. Even on a holiday weekend you will not see too many people on the beach. Autos are allowed on the beach with permit along with dogs and cats.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether you want to come to the beach to be alone and nobody knows that you are there or to be at one with nature or to partake in the fruits of the sea, Port St Joe has it all.
