About the property

TROPICAL BREEZE is a luxury beachfront home with an incredible view of beautiful, white sand beaches and natural sand dunes, where dolphins can be seen close to shore almost daily. Tropical Breeze is located 1/4 mile from St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, rated #1 beach in the USA. This wonderful park, not only has an award winning beach, but offers nature trails, scalloping, fishing, bird watching and is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling and biking.

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 complete selection of appliances, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and features 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. Free long distance plus the bike path has been extended to 8.5 miles and now goes from the start of the Cape to the Park.

The beach side of Tropical Breeze features a lower screen porch, furnished in white wicker that includes a rocking chair, love seat, wicker chair 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.

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 Florida Main North West

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.

Great House with lots of Extras

  • 5 of 5

Tropical Breeze is a wonderful house right on the beach and is fully equipped with everything in the Kitchen along with lots of beach chairs and extras under their home on their patio. They even have an outdoor ping pong table. We especially enjoyed having an elevator in this home. Definitely will book this house again.

Can't wait to return to A Tropical Breeze

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home on what has to be the most beautiful beach in Florida. The beach is perfect white sand, and the house is located on a section that is very wide and easy to access from the house. We loved our morning walks on the beach, and there are less crowds than most other spots in Florida. We had 3 families and 10 people, and there was plenty of room. The elevator is a great help when you are moving in and out, and there is a spacious kitchen, dining room and great room. There are no other houses or obstructions between A Tropical Breeze and the beach. This makes for unbelievable views of the ocean and beach, especially when the sun sets directly out the back! We love the area, as it is much less developed than most parts of Florida, and a visit to Indian Pass for oysters was great. I highly recommend this beautiful beach house for your next vacation!

Our New Favorite Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at A Tropical Breeze. It is a beautiful home that is well taken care of and was immaculate when we arrived. It was large enough for our multi-family getaway, and the elevator is great for anyone who has difficulty with stairs. Roni, one of the owners, is fantastic to deal with. There is not a lot to do on Cape San Blas other than enjoy the natural surroundings, and that is just the way we like it! Weber's Donuts were the best we have ever had, and we enjoyed a day trip in to Apalachicola. We can't wait to return to A Tropical Breeze!

Florida at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful visit to A Topical Breeze on Cape San Blas! The house is ideally located on the widest part of the beach and just down to the state park, so we took full advantage of the natural beauty all around to swim, bike, boat, stroll, and fish. (The fishing here is unbelievable!) Last night we sat at the shoreline under a full moon so bright it cast shadows, then enjoyed a bonfire and s'mores. Don't miss ice cream at Coneheads, oysters served every possible way in Port St. Joe, and homemade donuts at Webers Donut Shop.

The house is lovely, well-appointed, and spacious, with lovely views of the ocean from the upper level. Kitchen is well appointed and could meet the expectations of any foodie. Would definitely recommend!

We've been coming to Cape San Blass for nearly 20 years. We always stay on the gulf beach. We love the water, sand, and sun. A Tropucal Breeze is the best place we've ever stayed. It is a grand house. Large enough that our grown children can drop in anytime. A Tropical Breeze is truly our home away from home. Come on down!!!

Spring Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

Lovely hone - furnished very well. All of the comforts of home. Good internet for keeping up at home. Elevator was great for elderly parents and bringing in groceries.

Cooked all but one meal here and kitchen had everything we needed. Lots of beach equipment available for guests. We enjoyed body surfing in the waves, walking on the beach, kids dug for shells - nice big hole! Found lots of shells. Used the rental credit to rent bikes and the kids biked when not on the beach. Even pulled out the ping-pong table on a rainy morning. The week went quickly. . We finally saw dolphins the last day right in front of the house! Trip was complete! Owner and Rental company very responsive when we did have request or questions.
