About the owner: Mary and I purchased this home in September and have spent the last 4 months completely refurbishing this ocean front home. Pictures of this restoration will be available by the end of January, however if you would like to see an example of our remodeling look no further than our other vacation home directly next door at VRBO # 51952
This home is also available for your stay.
Why the Owner Chose Cape Dunes: We choose this area to buy our vacation home because is it truely the forgotten coast of Florida. While the rest of Florida's coastline goes wall to wall condos, Cape San Blas remains that small beach community of our childhoods. Port St. Joe and Appalach still have that small town feel where everyone knows and cares about you.
