Overview

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 easy to contact. Calendar is up to date.

The cape is an area I love. We lack crowds, traffic, mega-resorts, shopping malls, glitzy nightlife, but - have breathing room and easy access to water and wildlife. It is a nature-lovers dream. Hiking and biking trails in the coastal forest state park plus along Cape San Blas Road are nearby. Bike and kayak rentals are available.

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 a gorgeous white- sand beach and sparkling emerald water. Giant loggerhead turtles annually select the cape for nesting. Most days I am confident 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, a beautiful night sky 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.

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.

About Joyce Miller

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

Joyce Miller purchased this house in 2002

Why Joyce Miller chose Port St. Joe

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Cape Ann was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, secluded, and right on the beach! The house was lovely and very well kept. Joyce and Martha are very organized and wonderful to work with. We loved everything about our stay. We will absolutely be returning to Cape Ann!!

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a piece of heaven. Its relaxing, a place to unwind. Martha, and her sister Joyce own the place and take pride in their vacation home. Martha went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right. The screened in porch was perfection for quiet time with coffee and Jesus in the mornings.

Nature Lovers Paradise

  • 5 of 5

So much to do in the area. Kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, shelling. The list goes on. The owners were easy to work with and knowledgeable about the area and gave us great recommendations for places to eat. The house was very spacious and well stocked with anything we needed. The area was so quiet and secluded. It was so nice to have the beach to ourselves and not have to worry about our kids disturbing others. We ate all our meals on the screened in porch overlooking the beach listening to the waves and birds. Our family had a great time and want to come back again. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us.
