Great place to escape the winter with your dog
Great place to escape the winter with your dog
We enjoyed our 2 months in this lovely home with our yellow lab. The owners were very accommodating and were able to quickly address any concern that came up. The listing accurately described the property, but the pictures did not do this rental justice. The sunrises from the deck, which over looked the bay, were magnificent. The sunsets at the gulf, which was about a 7 minute walk, down a lane, across the street, and over and through the dunes, were fabulous. The beaches were just beautiful, not crowded, and it had the white powdery sand that you love to sink your toes in. We often were the only people on the beach, and Max loved the chance to swim in the surf and chase the pelicans. We often saw dolphins swimming not too far off shore. The home is secluded and about a 20 minute drive to the grocery store in Port St. Joe, so I advise stopping there first to buy groceries, before you get to the house. The state park is a short drive and most restaurants are about 30 min away. We enjoyed our stay and by the time we were ready to say we will come back, the place was rented for the winter.

Enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home on the bay. Very quiet and secluded. Close to all activities and state park. The owners are wonderful. Went during Spring Break and it was very peaceful. We will be back to this location again in the future.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: My husband and I are both from Panama City. I'm a retired RN and my husband is retired from Gulf Power. Growing up we both vacationed in this area and our children also learned all about boating and water activities in St Joe bay and the Gulf. Our house (Cape Escape) is where our family including grandchildren and grandpets (labs) meet to relax, visit and enjoy this beautiful place together.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We have traveled many places but we always come home and say we truly live in paradise. The property was bought and we moved into the house in 2001. We also have a home in Panama City along with rental homes. Last year was the 1st year we ever rented our Cape home. They were suveyors and needed a place for a few months. They loved it so much we decided to share paradise with others.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beautiful waterfront spacious home on St Joe bay with lots of windows and large deck to enjoy spectacular sunrises or walk down our lane and enjoy the white, sandy gulf beach. Be sure to catch the gorgeous sunsets. Moor your boat in front of the house or tie it to the boat slip on the 500 foot dock. Boating, fishing, shelling and numerous water activities await you. Not only bay fishing but Gulf fishing is just moments away. Guides are availible. There is shopping and local resturants near by or enjoy eating your own catch of the day. We have perserved our property in its natural setting. We have abundant wildlife and fish in the pond. There are numerous species of birds and the deck feeders atract many.
