                      Welcome to a beautiful beach house located in San Dunes, one of the premier communities on Cape San Blas. Situated on a strip with Gulf front on one side and a pristine bay on the other, both offering any family great water activities.

                      Enjoy your days on the white sand beach- play in the surf, games on the beach, dolphin watching, shelling, walking the natural and uncrowned beach, build sandcastles, ride the waves or just bob up and down. Fish from shore, the marina or boat - in the bay, gulf or freshwater rivers. Take the family scalloping in the bay for the finest bay scallops you will ever eat.

                      Located less than 3 miles from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park with all of it’s wildlife, dunes, protected beaches, and hiking. Kayak the bay- see sea turtles, rays, dolphins and more.

                      Visit the “Cape Trading Post” or “Scallop Cove” for anything you might need, both have most everything you might need. Port St. Joe is just a short drive for your larger grocery runs, with a great small town full of unique shops and family friendly dining. Or take in the “Indian Pass Raw Bar” for great sea food, and a wonderfully fun and laid back atmosphere.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Owners have two homes and occupy the beach home when not rented.

                      Why the Owner Chose San Dunes:
                      We have traveled the Florida panhandle since children, and fell in love with Cape San Blas because it is one of the last relatively undeveloped coastal areas- No high rises and very un-crowded beaches. This home is in an exclusive community on the north part of the cape, offering crystal clear water.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You might just be the only people on the beach for hundreds of yards either direction.
