About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) Sleeps 6, 2.5 Baths, WiFi

Our comfortably furnished beachfront townhouse is perfect for a romantic getaway or a peaceful family vacation. We are a 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath unit which has a 6 person maximum limit. We provide beach chairs for your convenience. The master bedroom has a king size bed and the second bedroom has a queen size bed. There is a queen sleeper sofa on the first floor. We are one of 12 units that share a community pool. With great views from both the first floor screened deck or the master bedroom screened deck enjoying your morning coffee while watching the shrimp boats and dolphin from one of the beach front decks. It is quite peaceful and exquisite.

Only 50 feet off a beautiful secluded beach you have a clear view of the Gulf. Features include boardwalk to beach, beach bonfires allowed (when fire ban not in effect, check with Gulf County prior to bonfires) and a pool. We are a short walk to the Money Bayou which is loaded with crabs. Enjoy the afternoon catching crabs for dinner.

With 12 units and being the only multi-unit complex in the area you will find the beach secluded and private compared to Barrier Dunes with 190 units (only 15 with Gulf view) or Barefoot Cottages which are not on the beach at all.

The Grounds: Exiting from the living area is a screened deck with a patio table and chairs. There is also a Weber charcoal grill just out the back door. The pool area is about 50 feet from the unit. There is a gazebo by the pool and a boardwalk to the beach. There are 2 outdoor showers. Bonfires are permitted (check with county first in case there is a fire ban) on the beach for a cozy campfire. From long walks on the secluded beach, shelling, exploring the beaches, fishing, playing or swimming in either the pool or Gulf of Mexico it or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. There is also plenty of parking right in front of the Beach Bungalow. Bringing the groceries and suitcases from the car to the house is a breeze.

Enjoy the great door by visiting St. Joseph Peninsula State Park with miles of white sugar sand, this park has one of the top rated beaches in the United States. Sunbathing, snorkeling, and swimming are popular activities along the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay. From offshore, canoeists and kayakers can take in a superb view of the high dunes and sand pine scrub. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy fishing, hiking, and bicycling. As a coastal barrier peninsula, St. Joseph provides excellent opportunities for bird watching; over 240 species have been sighted in the park. A boat ramp is located at Eagle Harbor on the bay side.

You may enjoy visiting St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is managed to preserve, in as natural a state as possible, its highly varied plant and animal communities. St Vincent has a large variety of exotic and endangered wildlife. There are ten separate habitat types have been identified: tidal marsh; freshwater lakes and streams; dunes dominated by live oak/mixed hardwood understory; scrub oaks; relatively pure stands of cabbage palm; and four different slash pine communities, each with its own unique understory species. St. Vincent is an important stop-off point in the Gulf of Mexico region for neo-tropical migratory birds. The island is a haven for endangered and threatened species, including bald eagles, sea turtles, indigo snakes, and gopher tortoises. Wood storks use the refuge during their migration. In addition, the refuge serves as a breeding area for endangered red wolves. You can get there by boat or ferry.

Cape Villas has many activities to choose from within a 30-minute drive. Nested between Port St Joe and Apalachicola, there are many restaurants, activities, and shopping. There are also places nearby that rent boats and personal watercraft (Jet-Skis). Panama City is about an hour drive offering many activities (from miniature golf, theme parks and movie houses).

Our place is beautiful and is in an idyllic setting and we hope you have a wonderful time at our townhouse.

About Michelle Abel

We fell in love with the area while vacationing in Port St Joe. We decided to purchase a small piece of paradise. When we found the Cape Villas Town homes we decided this was perfect!

Michelle Abel purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Michelle Abel chose Florida Main North West

We love to crab and with the Money Bayou just a short walk away we spend lots of time crabbing and relaxing while reading a book on the beach. This area truly represents the 'old South', it is very quiet and peaceful. The beach is not crowded. There are no hotels or motels in our area, we are the only multi-unit complex in the area, we are surrounded by single family homes. During the off season you can walk the beach for miles without running into another human being. It is very private and secluded.

What makes this townhome unique

This is a great place to come to recharging your batteries (as they say) or just for a quiet get away. We always fee revitalized after a week or a long weekend here at the beach.

Family Amazed

  • 4 of 5

We arrived to an amazing almost secluded location. The bayou was elevated and obstructed a straight shot to the beach which some considered a nuisance, but for us we did not mind it. We actually didn't mind walking a little farther with the dogs to take the bridge across the bayou to the beach. It gave our dogs a chance to wear down a little. The complex was very clean and even had a place for our dog crate under the stairs and out of the way. The kitchen was fully equipped which we never used. We preferred finding all the litthe places to eat and explore. The beach is very pet friendly just don't forget your waste bags. We saw a ton of wildlife (dolphins, manta rays, crabs, and all sorts of fish). The pool was very clean and a nice area to relax at once the dogs were worn out at the beach. We would definately stay here again. The owners even have a few puzzles, crab trap, and some beach chairs on site. You will not get cell service at this condo so come ready to relax. We lived it and can't wait to come back

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We love it there. The blue crabs are bountiful in the Bayou and the local shrimp, scallops and fish are inexpensive and fresh off the boat. If you all like exploring, there is ST Joe Bay State Preserve close by and a park at the end of Cape San Blas where you can Kayak. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

A friend told me about Port St. Joe and this wonderful condo. We had never even heard of Port St. Joe and had no idea what to expect. When we arrived at the complex we were very pleasantly surprised. It was a very nice unit and had everything to make it feel comfortable and homey.When we walked out toward the gulf, it was even more wonderful Peaceful, uncrowded, beautiful doesn't begin to describe it. It was just heaven on earth. I don't remember a more relaxing week. I will return as often as I can.

Great find!

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse is conveniently located in a quiet, peaceful section of the beach between Cape Sand Blas and Indian Pass. Always clean with easy access to the beach, great kitchen, enclosed patios and the views are wonderful. If you are looking for a get-away, this is the place to go. Pool is nice and clean and the gazebo is a great place to read and take a break from the sun. We try to stay here a couple of times a year and always enjoy it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. We always enjoy happy guests. We love the Sea nymph as well and wanted to have a secluded geteway for travelors. When you go next time, I will send you some crab and shrimp recipes. You can get as many blue crabs as you want right in the ocean out front with the traps we have or just buy them at the market down the street. However, sometimes I am sure you all just want to enjoy the beach and the pool. Either way, we are happy that your family is able to enjoy our townhouse.
