Property description

Book now for discount before peak rental season begins!
Rare near-Gulf-front property on the number one beach in the United States (as determined by 'Dr. Beach') with breathtaking views of both the Gulf and the bay. The home sits about 50 yards from the beach, with a short walk (about 50 yards) between two other homes to the surf on a wooden boardwalk. One of the closer homes just got relocated (moving elsewhere to higher ground) so the view just got even better!

'Shake Down' gets its name from the charming shake siding on the home. The home has been newly painted and renovated and boasts a light, airy decor with lots of windows. The views are unbelievable, the house totally comfortable. Book early before all the availability is gone. You will want to be just steps from the crystal waters off the pristine St. Joe Peninsula, home of St. Joe State Park and the best nature trails, scalloping, fishing, wildlife viewing, canoeing, kayaking, snorkling, biking, motor boating and other activities in the 'Forgotten Coast,' which is also close to the nearby historic Apalachicola (fine dining, antiques, boutiques and market shopping) and Panama City and Mexico City (for those with a wilder side). Great golf is minutes away in Port St. Joe.

The features and amenities of Shake Down include:
* Ground Level: Large driveway, underneath parking, and outside shower. Boardwalk to the beach.
* First Level: Newly renovated, full kitchen (open to living and dining areas), master bedroom and bath with a TV (with integrated dvd/vcr) and Jacuzzi tub. Tiled flooring throughout the cathedral ceiling living area. Living area has two sofas, many comfortable chairs and tables, and French doors leading out onto an open deck with a great view of the ocean. Living area has a LCD flat screen TV with dvd and vcr players and stereo. Screened porch and charcoal grill.
* Second Level: Bedroom with two sets of bunk beds (will sleep four). Bedroom with a queen-size bed and TV. Full bath. Open sun deck with gorgeous views of both the Gulf and bay.
* Home is professionally managed by the area's largest and most respected management company (complete with maintenance staff and housekeeping). FREE WIRELESS INTERNET AND LONG DISTANCE CALLS! Beautiful screen porch.

Leave the city stress behind and enjoy the serenity of Shake Down on the Cape!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I still remember my childhood days frolicking in the surf with my dogs. This is the best beach where I can do that freely.

Why Other Cape San Blas Properties:
I chose this house to buy because it is directly across from the Bp station and convenience store. There are obviously many beach properties, but few that offer the freedom to walk to purchase some ice cream, sundries, reading materials or even beer, rather than getting into the car. This facilitates the easygoing spirit I enjoy so much on the Cape.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is such a short walk to the beach (or the store)! The screen porch provides the perfect respite from any nightime creatures!
