A great deal of love and attention to detail has gone into making this your perfect home away from home. The house is furnished with the feel of the West Indies, dark wood furniture, a fireplace and soft oversize sofas with accents of palm trees and seashells, all in a light and airy atmosphere. The kitchen is full size, with a new stainless steel oven/stove. We provide a complete selection of appliances, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and Mikasa seashell dishes. No mismatched anything in this kitchen. Everything is in place to make it a pleasure to cook in this fully equipped kitchen.

Features: 60" LTE flat screen TV in living area and 46" flat screen TV in large master, smaller flat screens in the other 2 bedrooms. Wi-Fi, free long-distance plus the 8.5 mile bike path.

The beach side of Tropical Breeze features a lower screen porch, furnished in white wicker that includes rocking chairs, wicker chairs and a breakfast/game table. There is also a large upper porch with 4 chaise lounges. A view of the sunset and beach can be enjoyed from either level. Each of the 4 bedrooms has it's own bathroom, tv and it's own name. The master suite is 'White Sands' and features a 4 poster, king size bed, executive desk, 46' Flat screen TV, WI-FI, Gulf view, deck and an oversize bath with his and her vanities, large glass shower and Jacuzzi tub.

The second master is 'Kings Crown', includes a king size Victorian bed, 32' led flat screen TV and a gulf view. 'Palm Paradise' is located on the main floor, with a queen size, sleigh bed, a large Jacuzzi tub and a view of the sunrise. 'Under the Sea' is decorated with a tropical fish theme and has 2 sets of bunk beds, full on the bottom and twin on the top.

Also for the kids or kids at heart, we have our 'Beach Club' on the large patio under the house, which includes an outdoor ping pong table, seating area, gas grill and an outdoor enclosed hot water shower. This house offers a large selection of areas to sneak away for an hour or two. Take a book to the upper porch for a nice read and maybe an afternoon nap or head down to the 'Beach Club' for a competitive game of ping pong.

Put together a puzzle or play a game of cards on the screen porch. Catch up with your special someone on a nice stroll down the beach to the park, and on the way back, bond with your kids or grand kids over a sand castle. Float on a raft in the Gulf or cast a line into the surf to catch your dinner. You can watch your favorite sports team or a great movie on our new 60' LED flat screen TV or one of the other 4 TV's. An elevator is available for anyone who may need help with stairs. It is additionally available for all others, to assist in checking-in and checking out. This will be a vacation you will want to repeat often! We look forward to having you stay at Tropical Breeze.

If you are in need of additional space for a larger group, it may be possible to rent one or both of the 4 bedroom homes next to Tropical Breeze. The three homes combined could accommodate 35 people.

Tropical Breeze is a NON SMOKING property and does NOT allow pets.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at A Tropical Breeze multiple times and I must say I come to love it more every time I'm here. The house is set right on the beach and you can enjoy your coffee while hearing the sounds of the ocean and a great view of the beautiful sunset at night. The home itself is very spacious, we had 12 people staying here and had more than enough room! The beach is quiet and the perfect place for a get away. Definitely would recommend visiting The Sand Bucket for lunch or dinner and Scallop Republic for a nice beer after.

Very friendly owners and an easy-to-work with rental company. Will definitely be coming back soon!

Amazing Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What an amazing vacation we enjoyed at 'A Tropical Breeze' on the north end of lovely Cape San Blas, just a 1/2 mile from the State Park.

The weather was picture perfect - the mornings were cool and the afternoons warm. NO RAIN! The nights were ideal for star gazing. We made bonfires on the beach, cooked marshmallows and ate SMores. Then we marveled at the Milky Way, Seven Sisters, and Orion, and millions upon millions of stars. Fabulous!

We cooked and cooked, and ate and ATE! The kitchen is spacious and very well organized, fully stocked with cookware and utensils for preparing large meals for family and friends. The screened-in porch is inviting. The beach views are spectacular - windows are everywhere in the home. Our master bedroom was relaxing -I slept in late every day.

And the sunsets are simply stunning - reds, pinks, orange, yellow - crazy beautiful and awe-inspiring.

Our guys are fisherman and went out almost daily. We ate fresh Red Fish Tacos and took a boat out in the Gulf to the Cape San Blas pointe. The undisturbed beach was ideal for shell collecting and beach walking.

To top off our week, we went to the Blast on the Bay Songwriter Festival and enjoyed incredible music from talented songwriters. Coneheads serves good food and ice cream - I had a Root Beer Float and a Shrimp PoBoy. Yum. And their fries are double fried! The Trading Post has souvenirs, supplies and great pizza - perfect for our football watching Saturdays - and our teams won!!

All in all - a perfect vacation. We highly recommend 'A Tropical Breeze'!

Gorgeous get away

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at a Tropical Breeze! Loved that it was on the beach. Kids had a great time collecting shells and looking for crabs at night. We ventured over to the state park a couple of times. We are already planning our trip for next year!!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

A Tropical Breeze is one of the most beautiful vacation homes I've ever seen! The house is just over the dunes from the beautiful sugar sand beach, and their top floor balcony has my favorite view of the ocean (especially during sunsets). The furnishings are gorgeous and it stills feels cozy, just like relaxing in your own home. It is absolutely not a sparse "vacation house" - the laundry room, kitchen supplies, books, DVDs, and more made it feel like I was just staying in a friend's incredible home for the week! My boyfriend and I really enjoyed biking up the Cape and getting to fish on both the bay and ocean sides, as well as explore the State Park, the natural dunes (which are huge!), and the cute downtown of Port St. Joe. I can't wait to come back for another week of paradise soon!

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at A Tropical Breeze in the cape and had an amazing time! This property is beautiful and just steps away to the beach on a private boardwalk. Aside from being beautiful the interior of the home is nice and spacious offering a variety of amenities. One of my favorite things was having the private deck outside the master with ocean views and AMAZING sunsets! We felt right at home from the start! Pristine and the homeowners were wonderful to work with. I'd highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a piece of paradise! Excellent trip we'll never forget!!

About Roni Pridemore

Tropical Breeze is owned by 2 families from Atlanta, the Newmans and the Pridemores (pictured). Our children went to elementary school together and when we found this great house we formed a partnership. Our kids are much older now and both families have enjoyed many happy days at A Tropical Breeze.

Roni Pridemore purchased this house in 2002

Why Roni Pridemore chose Port St. Joe

The Pridemores heard that Cape San Blas was named the #1 beach in the USA, including Hawaii, in 2002. A trip was immediately scheduled to see the area. A Tropical Breeze was way out of our price range, but we loved it so much we videotaped it and went back to talk to friends and neighbors about a partnership. Fortunately, the Newmans were in the market for investment property and our partnership was formed. The home was first seen on July 3rd, 2002 and we were owners by August 24, 2002. Every time we visit, we fall in love with the house and area all over again. We are also fortunate to have many happy repeat guests.

What makes this house unique

There are so many, but some of our favorites are the great fishing on the beach and in the bay, the peacefulness and lack of crowds, the sunsets over the Gulf right in front of the house, incredible fishing and scalloping, Coneheads ice cream store, bonfires on the beach, dolphins and seashells.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comfortable house, fully equipped and appointed for an amazing and memorable beach vacation. Loved the proximity to the Trading Post Grocery store. The weather was perfect, sunny every day.

Our activities included: chasing toddlers around the beach, kite flying, combing beach for shells, sand castle building, swimming in the ocean, bonfires on the beach, outdoor showers, deep sea fishing, ice cream from the Trading Post, napping on king size bed and bathing in Jacuzzi tub.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
