About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

It has been a joy to be an owner of Cape Ann since 2002 and offer it as a Vacation Rental. Co-owners live in the area and are easily available. For personal assistance, please Click the "Email Owner" button with questions as well as make reservation and pay. Calendar is up to date. Please visit our Facebook link below for more info.

The cape is an area I love. There are no crowds, mega-resorts, glitzy nightlife, but - breathing room and easy access to water and wildlife. Hiking trails in the state park and a 9 mile paved bike path are nearby. A general store rents bikes and kayaks in addition to selling food, drinks and ice.

Cape Ann sits low in the landscape blending with the surrounding environment. It is within the Secluded Dunes gated community, adjacent to the 2,500 acre St. Joseph Peninsula State Park - which offers 10 miles of undeveloped coast and 35 foot high sand dunes (our skyscrapers). Secluded Dunes borders the state park designated wilderness preserve where a variety of animals and birds share the space.

Much of the charm of Cape Ann is - not too fancy, too upscale, too perfect - just presenting a calm, comfortable, 'welcome to the beach' essence.

The west side of the property opens to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico displaying the wide beach of snow white sand and sparkling emerald water. Giant loggerhead turtles annually select the cape for nesting. Most days you will see dolphins playing off shore and pelicans, sandpipers, and sea gulls sharing the neighborhood. At twilight this is the perfect spot to marvel at the sun dropping silently in the gulf. Following sunset, an amazing stargazing opportunity awaits. Many nights shrimp boats may be seen working off shore.

The gulf side of Cape Ann features a spacious screened porch. A covered porch runs across the front with a piney woods view. This is my favorite spot for that first cup of coffee. Deer enjoy munching on the lush vegetation which includes beach scrub, live oaks and sabal palms.

Cape Ann is a great choice for families who value serenity and natural beauty. It is convenient (ALL ON ONE LEVEL) and inviting with simplicity and ease.
Cape Ann has fresh paint - inside and outside, new flat screen TV's, new light fixtures among other things. When the time is right for a quiet retreat with the sand, sea and sky, you have found the place!

Cape Ann is SMOKEFREE, NO PETS ALLOWED and has an Age Restriction. No reservations accepted for vacationing students or singles under age 25 unless accompanied by adult, legal guardian or parent during entire stay. Chaperoned groups not accepted. Restrictions apply regarding number of people a parent or legal guardian may accompany.
Please note that we limit the total number of occupants to 8.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Owners are sisters who had rented vacation homes in the area several years. It was always fun getting together at a beach house.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
The Secluded Dunes section of cape offers what we love - privacy, seclusion, natural beauty and quiet space. The name Cape Ann is in memory of our mom and happy times with her at the cape.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was designed with comfort in mind. One flight of stairs up from the carport and then everything is on one level. Bedrooms are separated nicely for privacy. Two bedrooms have own bath, two other bedrooms share Jack and Jill style bath. Kitchen is quite large with pantry storage. There is a pleasing piney woods view from window above sink. Screened gulf side porch has beautiful view of beach and gorgeous sand dune with wind-swept vegetation.
