Private Homes cottage description

Sail Away is located only 50 steps from the gorgeous sands of the Gulf of Mexico and another short walk to the Trading Post, its location is incredible. This single level home is accessed by a short flight of exterior stairs making it very convenient for everyone. We have maximized the use of every inch of this small cottage. It is fabulously decorated with great artwork and pops of color and has everything you need to make your stay great. Completely NEW BATHROOM, KITCHEN, COFFEE BAR AND EXTERIOR ENTRY DOOR. We have thought of everything inside and out with a screened porch, partially enclosed outdoor hot and cold shower and a large wraparound deck with picnic table w/ umbrella . There are brand new Adirondack chairs with cushions, ottomans and cup holders to enjoy the ocean view. No matter your location on this large deck, you will have fantastic views. While this property does sleep a total of 6, we would not recommend all adults as space might be tight at maximum capacity. Come for a long weekend, a week or even a month or two. It’s perfect no matter what time of year.

Floor Plan: Living room with pull out couch, flat screen TV, DVD, island dining table, kitchen, full bath, Bedroom 1- Full and twin bunk bed, TV/DVD, X-BOX W/GAMES and laundry room; and Bedroom 2 – queen bed, TV/VCR and DVD. There is also access onto a screen porch with bistro table which opens onto the wraparound deck.
The kitchen is set up with everything you could possibly need and then some. Extra seating with a picnic table on the wrap around deck and more seating on another deck below. Stroll along the wooden boardwalks or lounge in the grass.

                          Car: Recommended

                          St. Joseph Peninsula State Park was America's #1-Beach, in 2002. Scalloping in the St. Joseph Bay is amazing!

                          Cape San Blas, located at the southernmost tip of Florida's Great Northwest, is home to the #1 beach in the continental United States!What's so special about Cape San Blas?•No amusement parks or hi-rise condos

                          •No cell phones, pagers, or alarm clocks

                          •Almost no cars......very few people

                          It's what you don't have (or want) that makes this place special. Cape San Blas is a get-away...away from the noise...away from the crowds...away from the busy schedules, the telephones, the responsibilities. After a week of enjoying the simplest of pleasures, it's hard to go home.

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About: My husband and I were looking for a place to go on a nice quite beach vacation with our then 4 & 3yr old children. We saw Cape San Blas on Google maps and decided to go there, we fell in love instantly. We have been going back for a few years now and can not think of a better place to spend time with our family. It is the most peaceful and gorgeous place we have ever been. Every person that we have met there and ones that we have sent there since, have been back numerous times. The beaches are beautiful, sugar fine sand, blue-green water, amazing sunsets.

                          Why Private Homes:
                          When we finally decided to buy a house in Cape San Blas, Sail Away was our first choice. The cottage charm of this house can not be resisted. Being that it is only 180 steps from the water, maybe 50 steps to the sand, it is ideal for adults and children alike. The wrap around deck has a nonslip finish to make it completely safe for children that have just come out of the outdoor shower.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          You will fall in love with this cottage from the anti slip finish on the wrap-a-round decking & the outdoor shower to the cheery Caribbean colors inside. The fully equipped BRAND NEW kitchen has everything you could possible need. The screened in porch has great views and faces the beach so you get that wonderful breeze off of the water. Gulf views from almost every part of the deck. Lets not forget that it is only 50 STEPS from the beach. That's less then a 30 SECOND walk!!! We are only a few hundred feet from the 'Tradin Post' to pick up last minute groceries, beach accessories or pizza and wings. They pretty much have everything you could need, which saves you from having to drive into Port St. Joe.
