About the property

*** Check out dunefine com for special rates & additional photos ***


3 Bedroom + Sleeping Loft, 3 Bathroom Home Professionally Managed by a Cape San Blas based Property Management Company to provide local support during your stay.

Private HEATED swimming pool! Dune Fine is Very Close To The Beach! Beautiful first tier home on North Cape San Blas with gorgeous views of both the beach and bay from the decks. Unobstructed sunset views all year round. Located in a quiet, upscale neighborhood, with short boardwalk to beach just steps from the door. Only 3 other homes share this area of the beach, boardwalk & dock insuring privacy. A private HEATED pool with integrated kiddie pool and pergola for shade are there for your enjoyment when not at the beach. Additional charge of $40/day, $200/week, or $500/ month required to heat the pool.

Wrap-around decks on two floors. Crow's Nest loft with wet bar and two decks, one for viewing the sunrise and one for viewing the sunset over the Gulf all year.

Two master bedrooms, each with a King bed, deck, and bathroom. Main floor bedroom has two bunk beds, one with two twins, and one with a twin and double. Queen sleeper-sofa in the living room and Crows nest loft. Wireless Internet. HDTVs with Amazon Fire TV Sticks to stream video from your private accounts. Dog friendly.

Bay access via community dock is right down the street which is ideal for launching kayaks and paddle boards. Bay depth near the dock is shallow and varies with the tide. Check out the Maps/Location/Dock page on our website for more information if you plan to use the dock for boats. Boat launch just down the street at the State Park.

Elegant decor throughout the house will make you stay comfortable. Gourmet kitchen has beautiful granite counters with five seats at the bar, hardwood floors, and stainless appliances. Two A/C units and washer/dryer.

This wonderful beach house is located on the north end of Cape San Blas where the bluest waters are found. The other areas of the Cape and Indian Pass have more 'churn' from the currents. The Cape is a stretch of land that runs North-South, therefore the beach house sees the most beautiful sunrises over the bay and sunsets over the gulf all year long. The area is family friendly, beaches are rarely crowded, and it is especially quiet by this community. Cape San Blas has been rated the #one beach in America and is pet friendly. The Cape is 15 minutes to Port St. Joe, and 30 minutes to Apalachicola or Mexico Beach, for your shopping and dining pleasure.

Watch the dolphins from your deck while enjoying your morning coffee. Kids love to swim and boogie board in the shallow water. Great for catching blue crab, hermit crab, and fishing. We loved vacationing here so much, we decided to buy a home. You will love it too. *** Check out dunefine com for special rates and additional photos ***

About Gary

I reside in Georgia, North of Atlanta with my family. I'm actively involved in the renting, maintenance, & improvements to Dune Fine. I employ a Cape San Blas based property management company so my guests have local support during their stay.

Gary purchased this house in 2007

Why Gary chose Port St. Joe

My family was introduced to Cape San Blas by friends. We fell in love with the quiet, family atmosphere. During one trip we looked at several properties and instantly knew Dune Fine was the one. We quickly added the heated pool to make it a great place to relax.

What makes this house unique

We love the section of the beach, the private road, the outstanding views, & the uniqueness of the property shape.

Wonderfully decorated house just steps away from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully represented by the pictures, and it is very clean and well kept. The heated pool was a great alternative to the windy beach this visit. I've visited the house before, and the experience was every bit as wonderful as the last. We brought our small dog, who loves the beach, and we were pleased to find that though the home is dog-friendly, you would never know because of how well it is maintained. All of the utilities and appliances worked great, and the updated furniture is in excellent condition.

Beautiful beach home on Cape San Blas

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dune Fine for a beach vacation for our family of 12 (8 adults and 4 small children). This beach house was perfect for our family. It is every bit as fantastic as the pictures portray.

The house has two king bedrooms with comfortable bedding and private baths on the second floor. Each bedroom has a balcony. The main living area is on the third floor with a nice size living area and kitchen with stainless appliances. The furniture in the living area is nice and comfortable. The dining table and bar with stools provide plenty of room for family meals. The kitchen was well stocked with all the cookware and dishes we needed to prepare meals at the house. There is a third bedroom on the third floor with two sets of bunk beds. A third bathroom is also on this floor. The fourth floor has a sofa bed. This bedroom has a small refrigerator and wet bar, but there is no door. It has two balconies with great views. The house is tall so there are a lot of stairs to navigate when bringing in suitcases, groceries, etc. but the views are amazing and we enjoyed sitting out on the balconies.

The first floor entrance of the house is perfect for storing beach bags, hats, etc. The large outdoor shower is handy to rinse sand. There is also a nice area to store beach toys, coolers, etc.

The pool was a good size for our family of 12. Our toddler loved the connected baby pool. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the pool.

The house is close to the beach. The private walkway to the beach is just across the driveway and it is a quick easy walk. Nice gazebo with seating.

We loved our first visit to the cape and we will definitely be back! We loved that it is so well preserved with no huge high rises. A small Teading Post near the house has many items we needed, but we also enjoyed a couple trips into Port St. Joe for groceries, and to Indian Pass Raw Bar, and even explored the coast over to St. George Island. However, most of our time was spent just steps from this house on the beautiful beach.

The owner Gary is great to work with, answering questions before we arrived and checking on us while we were at the house to make sure any issues were resolved quickly.

I highly recommend this beach house. We had four couples plus children and we wanted to be together for a family vacation. This house provided plenty of room and amenities for us to have a great time together.

Very comfortable home, nicely decorated. Just a few short steps to the beach and a nice view from the decks. The kitchen was well stocked and we cooked a lot there. The owner is responsive to contact and the check in process efficient at the local rental company. Very quiet area, beautiful beach. I would recommend it for a great beach vacation!

Clean and Well decorated with most everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

The frying pans are small and there were not enough towels. But great stay and the owner is super nice. Very responsive! The property is beautiful and just off the beach (one row back). Great views of the bay and the ocean. Quiet culdesac but only steps to the beach. I would recommend. There are tons and tons of steps. But the views are worth it. The house allows pets but there is no sign of pets. Didn't see any dog hairs or no pet smells. Would stay here again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We completed an inventory of the pots & pans to insure there are enough. Rentals include 13 towels to match the occupancy. If for some reason towels are missing the property manager is happy to drop some off. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Gary - Dune Fine owner

New favorite home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Dune Fine for my spring break with some girlfriends, and our experience could not have been better!! The house was clean, beautiful, and had everything we needed. The heated pool and the beach were also perfect, and we had such a fun few days here! The pictures on the house's website accurately represent everything in the house, and it's easy to tell the owner cares about keeping the home in excellent condition. I can't wait to visit Cape San Blas again, and I'll definitely make Dune Fine my regular rental home.
