About Mike Vaughan

Lynn retired after 30 years as a math teacher. Mike retired after 40 years as a small business owner. We live in Georgia. After out first visit to the 'Cape' we purchased our townhome new. We have been the only owners for 18 years.

Mike Vaughan purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Mike Vaughan chose Port St. Joe

Cape San Blas is unique in that it is one of the last uncrowded beaches on the Florida coast. The beautiful white sand beaches,sunsets that are breathtaking, excellent fishing, both inshore and offshore and the laid back atmosphere are just a few of the reasons we bought here.

What makes this townhome unique

Barrier Dunes offers a secure gated community to enjoy. With two pools, tennis courts,and a secluded sugar white beach it offers the best of everything in the Cape.

Loved our stay at Starry Night!

  • 5 of 5

Starry Night is cute, comfortable, and bright. Loved all the "homey" touches that made you feel like you could relax inside as well as at the beautiful beach. The owner and Pristine Properties were wonderful and easy to work with. I will definitely return to this condo!

Beautiful place, very clean, everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This place had absolutely everything we needed and was very nicely decorated...we felt right at home! We did a lot of cooking during the week of our stay and everything we needed was available, even small things like corn cob holders, chip clips, and beverage coozies. The entire place was spotless and we felt very comfortable living there for the week. There were only 2 of us staying there, and we will definitely stay here again when we get back down to CSB!
