Property description

Welcome to Cape San Blas...a peninsula 30 miles east of Panama City and 15 miles south of Port St. Joe, Florida. BEST DOCK is a bay front estate located on the southern end of the Cape with gorgeous views of Port St. Joe Bay and Pig Island. Two houses are located on this property; both units share a private dock. This site allows you to explore the Main House @ Best Dock.

The Main House is a 3 BR/2 bath home that sleeps eight. As you browse this website, you'll notice this property sits on the bayside of Cape San Blas Road; the unit also has beach access across the road. Yep, the best of both worlds!

The Main House master suite has a king size bed and fantastic view of the bay; BR #2 has a queen bed and one set of bunk beds; BR #3 has one queen bed. There are two full bathrooms. A fully equipped kitchen sits adjacent to the open living area. Living room and all bedrooms have televisions with cable. WIFI is available on site. This unit is non-smoking, pet-accommodating, and family friendly.

"Best Dock"...really? Most docks at the Cape are located at the end of a 100'-200' pier. The dock at this property is just 50 feet from the edge of the yard. Plus, the water is deep enough to support a fishing or pontoon boat. Tides at the Cape are extreme -- pay attention and be cautious when boating, fishing, and scalloping. The large back yard is suitable for volleyball, sunning, and picnics. A public boat launch is available at Eagle Harbor State Park, just north of Best Dock.

Cape San Blas runs North-South providing beautiful sunrises over the bay and sunsets over the Gulf all year long. The area is family friendly and beaches are rarely crowded. Cape San Blas has been rated the #1 beach in America and is pet friendly. The Cape is 15 minutes to Port St. Joe and 30 minutes to Apalachicola or Mexico Beach for your shopping and dining pleasure. The Trading Post, a locally owned grocery store, is directly across the street and has a variety of items to meet immediate needs.

If you want the best of both worlds and a vacation to remember, book your stay with BEST DOCK!

Year Purchased: 2010

About: I currently call Birmingham, Alabama home, but I'm a native of the Florida panhandle. I grew up fishing in the Gulf and that's still my passion today. I found Cape San Blas by accident and haven't looked back once. I enjoy tinkering on my boats, my houses, and miscellaneous projects my neighbors get me involved in. I love God, my family, and Alabama football. I hope you find the Cape as wonderful, relaxing, and fun as I do.
