Private Homes house description
CAPE BLISS is a luxurious 3700 sq ft gulf front home with an additional 1500 sq ft of decks and porches. This waterfront home has amazing views and the ultimate in privacy. You can see down the beach for hundreds of feet from almost any room and from all decks and the screened porch. Cape Bliss is set in a very private beach front setting with over 150 feet to the only nearby neighbor. Access to the beach is via the walkway right next to the house.
The extra large community pool is less than 400 feet away. With only 8 homes in the entire neighborhood, you can almost call the pool your own. There are lockers at poolside for you to leave your belongings. There are 3 bedrooms directly on the gulf and a 4th studio apartment with its own kitchen and private gulf view deck. An elevator makes every room accessible, except the studio. The home is pet friendly, has a fenced area and even offers a doggie (and person) shower area.
Want sun or shade or away to sit out with a book or a game away from the annoying insects? This home features it all with covered and open decks and a screened porch. This spacious home is new construction, and makes for a wonderful romantic getaway or it can easily accommodate the large extended family group. Everyone can have their own space if they want it, but there is lots of room for the larger group gatherings.
This upscale home has everything to make your vacation memorable beginning with a 2-car garage and extra driveway parking. The main living area, which is located on the second floor to maximize views, has an open floor plan, large, designer kitchen, gas fireplace, large screen HDTV mounted above the fireplace, large pantry, full bath, and walkout to the screened porch. You can sit in the living room, at the dining table or working at the kitchen sink and get panoramic, awesome views of the dunes and beach. The house features tile and hardwood floors throughout.
The first floor has a beautiful master suite with king sized bed and a private open deck with its own access to the ground level fenced yard. The master bath has a huge separate tiled shower, with beach views, a Jacuzzi tub, and double vanities. The master bedroom closet is huge and even large enough to accommodate a crib. The large sized laundry room is also located on the main floor. It is a few steps up to the studio apartment from the main floor hall.
Moving to the third floor, the second bedroom has a king sized bed and the third bedroom has a twin over double bunk bed and also twin bunk beds. Both have direct access to the top floor sundeck, enjoy spectacular views and share the beautifully tiled full bath on this floor. At the front of the house, over the 2-car garage is Cape Bliss Studio – an efficiency apartment with the 4th bedroom, separate sitting area, queen-sized bed, a full kitchen with dishwasher, private full bath and a private open sundeck.
We have no high rises on Cape San Blas, you can walk down the beach and not see another soul outside of spring and summer peak weeks. You can leave your chairs and shelter on the beach and ready for you to come back to it after your refreshing swim in the nearby community pool.
Note: Smoking is not permitted on premises at Cape Bliss.
The beaches are pet-friendly too and were recently rated #1 pet-friendly beach by K-9 magazine. Even some of the nearby restaurants have outside decks and are pet-friendly.

Cape Bliss was just what we needed
Cape Bliss was just what we needed to unwind after a very busy Fall. It was spacious and well maintained. Our dogs especially appreciated the grassy area at the bottom of the stairs. The women at Sunset Reflections couldn't have been more professional or made things any easier for our last minute getaway. Thank you, and thank the home owners for us. We really appreciate them sharing their home with us!

Quiet and relaxing and well equipped.
Jeff and I and our 2 dogs enjoyed this beautiful house. Everything was exactly as the pictures showed. Very clean and well equipped. The dogs enjoyed the ocean without having to be leashed. Nice quiet relaxing area. Very few people on the beach and the ones we did meet all had their dogs and very friendly. This is one place I will be returning to. Thank You for letting us enjoy this wonderful place and my dogs really thank you

Cape Bliss is delightful!
Cape Bliss is delightful!
Cape Bliss is a stunning home with amazing porches and views in a very peaceful setting. We loved it! The home was exceptionally clean and has comfortable beds, furniture and great bathrooms. The house and the rooms are much larger than they appear in the pictures. We especially liked the privacy and the beautiful views from all levels. The fenced area was perfect for our dogs. Sunset Reflections (the rental management company) is wonderful!

Magnificent house and Terrific beach!
We had a great time. The house was magnificent. The beach was terrific. We loved the quiet atmosphere. The dogs did not bother us at all. Everyone was very attentive to their animals. My grandchildren had a great time as my husband, my sister and I did too. We would definitely come again. Thank you again for providing us with a wonderful place to vacation. Everything was super!!!

Cape Bliss was paradise! The views were spectacular, the home was exceptionally clean and well designed. I loved the pet friendly nature of the home, and the almost private beach. This house has everything! It even has a private apartment! I especially loved sitting on the fourth floor deck overlooking the ocean and enjoying the view and ocean breeze. This is a very special house, the property is so serene and staying there it is a true escape. I left so relaxed and can't wait to vacation back there soon. This is a five star property!

Great Place for Family Gathering
Great Place for Family Gathering
The house was wonderful and it was great to have everyone in the same place. We always have a family gathering and usually get 2-3 condos, but we enjoyed the house. It was very well appointed, and the elevator was convenient since my son had broken his ankle just days before we left on the trip. When issues came up the management company responded quickly and efficiently. Access to the beach was perfect as well as access for boat launching, etc. There are some very good restaurants in Port St. Joe including Sunset Grill and Joe Mamma's Pizza. We used the grill provided and cooked out several nights. My only complaint is the pool that we had access to was closed the entire week we were there. Since my son was on crutches the pool was his only option for water fun hanging out with the family so that didn't work out at all. It rained a couple of days, but on the days it was nice, we weren't able to go to the pool. That was one of the reasons we had selected this particular house was the access to a community pool, so I was pretty disappointed. The pool is nice. We did call a couple of times and I wasn't ever given a reason why it wasn't open. The management company did provide a modest refund on the rental, so they tried to do something, but it was a bummer not having a pool. Others might not care about this at all and if you don't, or the pool's working then I'd recommend this place 110%. We will consider going back also.

Manager response: We were very sorry that the community pool was not available for the week of these guests stay. This was an extremely rare occurrence. This is the only time in over a year and it is now up and running on 7/10. The management company provided a modest refund on their own and then the owners approved an increased refund to help compensate for this problem. Unfortunately, there was an equipment problem and the pool management company had thought it would be fixed during the week but problems obtaining the needed parts delayed the repair. We do not expect this problem to reoccur. Anne Anderson, Sunset Reflections
Our Own Private Paradise!Guest comment entered by manager
Our Own Private Paradise!
This house was even better than the pictures! Very spacious and meticulously clean. The binder of information about the area was extremely helpful. Our 11-year-old twin boys loved the bunk beds and saw dolphins and bald eagles while here. We ate at the Seafood Grill in Appalachicola, the Sunset Grill in Port St. Joe, Coneheads for lunch (good food and ice cream but service was a little slow), and Indian Pass Raw Bar (great local spot on a Friday night, complete with live music). We had the beach and pool to ourselves except for two guys fishing one day and one neighbor with his daughter at the pool another day. It was fantastic - our own private paradise! -Cindy Martin, Webster, NY

A time we won't forget
A time we won't forget
This was an amazing vacation for our family (My husband and I, 5 kids and our dog). We fell in love with the house, the views, the beach and the peacefulness of our surroundings. There were many times we were alone on the beach. We were lucky enough to see dolphins up close on the beach, the kids played on the sand dunes for hours and we strolled for shells many a days. We had a wonderful bonfire one evening and roasted S'mores and enjoy time together. It made us think long and hard about why we live in such a climate as the Midwest and don't enjoy daily the weather and peace of the beach more often. We will definitely be back to visit again and this house has become our 2nd home....or at least we can dream!!!

"Cape Bliss lives up to it's name"
We had an incredible Thanksgiving week at Cape Bliss! The house really lived up to the name. It was a wonderful blessing to have all of our grown children under one roof in such a relaxing environment. I really appreciated having access to two kitchens (the main house and the apartment) for cooking Thanksgiving dinner. The icing on the cake was watching our beloved elderly lab behave like a puppy again swimming in the ocean and enjoying life. She really enjoyed the outside warm water shower, too! We are already looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much for being so accomodating and offering this wonderful home to us!
