Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: John and Dawn welcome you to our home. We have been vacationing at the cape for over 18 years and have owned property on the cape for 12 years. In 2008 we purchased Cape Cottage because of its great location on Haven Rd. We are first tier but share an oversized beach front lot with 3 other homes. The boardwalk to the beach comes right to our back door making beach accessibility terrific and the screen porch is to die for. Hope you enjoy as much as we do. Dawn and John

Why Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
We chose this home because we wanted to be away from the busy roads and congested neighborhoods. We wanted to be first tier to better protect our home from the wear and tear of those gulf wind.
