Property description

2 CRAZY BEACHES is fairly NEW ON THE RENTAL MARKET, newly designed, clean, fun, yet quiet get-a-way 2 BR (queen size beds), 2 BA on main floor and a large loft with a twin bed and a queen bed upstairs. Sofa converts to double bed IF NEEDED. Flat screen TV in every room (including loft), Living room has TV/DVD and a DVR. Free Wi-Fi and a land-line with long distance calls. There is a pack and play for babies, a baby monitor and some toys and games available.

We are between Indian Pass and Cape San Blas!

2 Crazy Beaches is beautifully and fully furnished, from fresh linens in the bedrooms to stocked condiments in the kitchen. Both bedrooms have queen size beds, the master has an adjoining private bathroom. The loft has a twin bed and a queen bed. The sofa lets out to a full bed. There is another full bath in the hall.

The dining room features seating for 6-8 at the huge dining room table. Adjoining is the cozy living room with flat screen TV, DVD, DVR and high ceilings.

The area is rich in history, shopping and shelling, yet far away from the crowds. Excellent cuisine is in the area and also a short 20 minute ride to Apalachicola, the center of the 'Forgotten Coast of Florida.'

Private shower outside under unit, fish cleaning station under our beach house, covered parking for four vehicles. Large covered and screened front porch has view of Bay; and a grilling area with a Weber Charcoal grill.

The house is located on Cape San Blas which is a narrow strip of land protruding out into the Gulf and separating St. Josephs Bay and the Gulf. Our house is 200 yards from the boardwalks leading over the sand dunes to the beach, and just a short walk through the neighborhood, with no streets to cross. Port St. Joe offers two fully stocked grocery stores, restaurants, drug stores, and almost everything one could need. Apalachicola is 23 miles away and is a very historic town. Mexico Beach is 20 minutes away. Our area has no tall buildings or bright lights, so it is very quiet and peaceful.

We rent for 3 - 4 night stays during certain times of the year.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Hi, we are Julie Rayburn and Jyll Gandy. We purchased this beach house as a partnership. We both love the area and have wanted to do this for a long time, the opportunity was right so we purchased this beach house and would like to share it with you. Julie is from Georgia where she lives with her family, and Jyll lives in Tallahassee, but also spends lots of time in Port St Joe where she has a home. We both try to get to the beach as much as we can, we consider this our second home so we ask that if you rent it, please take care of it. This is our get-a-away when we can get there, our home away from home. This area of Florida is one of the best kept secrets ever. The forgotten coast. We have two Pit Bulls, Diesel and Yeti, they travel to the Beach with us most of the time. I also have a Boxer named Sadie. Jyll has a Jack Russell who also loves the beach. Our family loves the pet friendly beaches, especially this one!~ Julie You won't find much fast food here or any high rise buildings, there aren't even many hotels. What you will find is the good life, good people, new friends and hopefully you will return again and again. This is what they call 'Old Florida', or the Forgotten Coast', but we hope you won't forget it. We love it here and hope you will too.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Dunes:
The area is not too fast paced. The beaches and sites are beautiful. Depending on which area of the beach you want to go to you can see many things, the wildlife and lots of scenery. We love the restaurants in the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our screened front porch that is great for morning coffee or evening gatherings. The beach is nice for long walks or lazy sunny days on the beach. Sometimes on the beach you will only see a hand full of people, sometimes you will see a few more, depending on the season. There is great fishing from the beach or from one of the local fishing guides. You can dine in, grill your catch of the day, dine in one of the local restaurants nearby. There are many fantastic places around to eat. Try them all, we are not too far from Mexico Beach, Panama City or Apalachicola.
