Property description

This home is a 3 BR/2B open plan providing much livable space with the living-dining-kitchen area opening onto the screened porch and heated/cooled sun porch overlooking St. Joseph Bay and sunsets. While not directly located on Cape San Blas it is conveniently located on the East side of the Bay to boat and kayak launches and nearby beach access. The house overlooks a salt marsh and there is access from the property to the bay.

We are ready for vacationers who want to enjoy our beautiful St. Joseph Bay.

RESERVE NOW FOR 2016 SEASON Two-three day stays are always considered. Inquire for availability and daily rates.

This is a nonsmoking rental and cats are not accepted. Dogs accepted with prior approval and pet fee.

BaySide Cottage and nature retreat is located overlooking beautiful St. Joseph Bay and St. Joe Bay State Buffer Preserve facing West for awesome, unforgettable sunsets. Go scalloping, take a kayak tour or rent or bring your own. Fish for trout, redfish, flounder; go crabbing for the tasty blue crabs.

Convenient to Presnell's marina where you can launch your boat, rent a boat, or hire a captain. Also convenient to St. Joe State Park with boat launch facilities, Salinas Park and several other Beaches locations.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As an avid scalloper and snorkeler I have been enjoying the bay for years. When not on the bay I am hiking/walking one of our local areas, bird watching, or enjoying the spring and fall wildflowers. I would be happy to recommend guides for various local outdoor activities from fishing to photography. Please note that we occasionally travel away and have no access to e-mail. If we do not respond shortly we are either working on property or away and either way are without internet access. We will respond just as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
Originally the house was purchased as my personal home and I enjoyed living there and watching the sunsets and wildlife for a few years. It has only recently been rented on a limited basis. I moved to the area after retiring from Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, FL. I have always been around the water and my family took me scalloping before there was mask, snorkel, fins; they took me crabbing before there were traps.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will find the location of the property tranquil. Wildlife viewing is at its best. The most memorable event of my time there was watching a pair of eagles build a nest.
