My husband and I are both from Panama City. I'm a retired RN and my husband is retired from Gulf Power. Growing up we both vacationed in this area and our children also learned all about boating and water activities in St Joe bay and the Gulf. Our house (Cape Escape) is where our family including grandchildren and grandpets (labs) meet to relax, visit and enjoy this beautiful place together.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Port St. Joe
We have traveled many places but we always come home and say we truly live in paradise. The property was bought and we moved into the house in 2001. We also have a home in Panama City along with rental homes. Last year was the 1st year we ever rented our Cape home. They were suveyors and needed a place for a few months. They loved it so much we decided to share paradise with others.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful waterfront spacious home on St Joe bay with lots of windows and large deck to enjoy spectacular sunrises or walk down our lane and enjoy the white, sandyf gulf beach. Be sure to catch the gorgeous sunsets. Moor your boat in front of the house or tie it to the boat slip on the 500 foot dock. Boating, fishing, shelling and numerous water activities await you. Not only bay fishing but Gulf fishing is just moments away. Guides are availible. There is shopping and local resturants near by or enjoy eating your own catch of the day. We have perserved our property in its natural setting. We have abundant wildlife and fish in the pond. There are numerous species of birds and the deck feeders atract many.

Beautiful spot in a great and very private location
We greatly enjoyed our week at Ms. Frieda's home and our dogs had an amazing week relaxing on the huge sunny deck overlooking the gorgeous bay. The house is well set up, anytime we can have a king sized bed is a huge plus and Ms. Frieda replied instantly to any question or issue that came up over the week we stayed in her home. The lot is very private and the location is perfect, there's a walking path to the beach almost directly across the road or easier access just down the road via another public access with walkways and restrooms.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review so glad your family enjoyed our home
I appreciate the time you took to write the review
We love hearing people enjoy our home as much as we do!
Cape San Blas on the Bay is the way to go!
We really enjoyed the stay on the bay side of the Cape. This was our first visit to the area and first time staying on the bay. We rented a large pontoon boat for a few days and kept the boat at our dock. I would highly recommend it. We saw a lot of dolphins and stingrays in the bay. We enjoyed the large deck for meals, the two kayaks for morning excursions and a visit to Port St Joe. Remember to check out restaurant hours, most close early and on Sundays or Mondays, we cooked in a lot. Little Weber's donuts are a must, get there early, they run out before 9:30. The house is older, but the layout was perfect for our two families. We will return to the Cape!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review so glad you enjoyed your vacation!!!!
We built our house about 15 years ago and feel so fortunate to have no marshland and only 50 feet from our bay front and dock
We updated the deck last year
Painted inside and plan more projects this year
Our house stays rented continuously
So this year we set aside family time this summer to get more projects completed
Thank you again for the great review
and for taking your time out to write it!
We enjoyed having your family
Please come again
Escaped to the Bay
This is the first time we've stayed on the bay side of Cape San Blas and I'm glad we did. The location was perfect, the lot beautiful. I enjoyed hearing and seeing the mockingbirds every day. The shore birds are always a delight but it was a thrill to see a bald eagle flying by early in the morning or late in the afternoon. My husband and I enjoyed the use of the kayaks and took them out every day we were there. Putting them in was easy just as Mrs. Warren said it would be. We caught several trout and enjoyed them for dinner one night. What I enjoyed most were all the butterflies! I walked the paths off the drive and saw Monarchs, Gulf Fritillaries, Sulfphurs and many others. Didn't see dove until Saturday afternoon when two joined me on the deck like we were old friends. We fished off the pier a few times and enjoyed the view from there. There are a few boards that need to be replaced and Mrs. Warren said they planned on doing that soon. There are a few things inside the house that need attention but Mrs. Warren mentioned that they have plans to do some of that work soon. One of those is the kitchen. We do wish there had been more counter and cabinet space. We had to leave our groceries out on the counter and it didn't leave much room for prepping food. The beds were comfy and the best thing about the master BR is when the blinds are pulled up you can lie in bed and see the stars!I We love the outdoors and this place did not disappoint. The view of the bay is amazing. The natural landscaping was lovely. Mrs. Warren is the nicest owner I have had the pleasure to do business with. We hope to return in the future.
Wonderful property with tons of wildlife opportunities. Loved the dock!
We found the rental property on very short notice after hurricane Nate cancelled our other plans. The owners were very helpful and accommodating on such short notice. The property feels very secluded and is set a hundred or so yards back from the main road. There is an abundance of wildlife to be seen from the back porch and dock. In just five days we saw crabs, frogs, turtles, rays, a shark, fish, an owl, woodpeckers, and two bald eagles who apparently have a nest nearby.
The only downside is that the beach is about a 15 min walk including the length of the driveway, a brief walk down the sidewalk along the main road to a public access sand-trail walkway through the dunes. This proved difficult at times with multiple little ones. One very easy solution would be to drive down to the state park and pay a small fee ($6 per car per day) and visit the BEAUTIFUL beach there. We'll be doing this next time.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review we were so glad we had the dates open you needed
We are so glad also that you had such a great time and look forward to your return!
Cape escape is truly paradise
Beautiful home with incredible view and access to the bay.
The owner was great to work with and went out of the way to make sure we had what we needed. We kayaked from the house to Eagle Harbor, fished from the pier and spent time at the beach (across street and short walk through dunes). We will rent this property again!
Thank you so much for choosing cape escape you were wonderful guest and look forward to hearing from you in the future
We are located right on bay with no marshland which makes it so easy to kayak and the beach across the street
Gives you the best of both worlds
Am so glad you a great time
And thank you again for taking your time to let us know!
We had a fantastic fishing trip. The location is perfect! . The inside was beautifully decorated, clean, spacious and amazing. This home is very comfortable, inviting, and relaxing. It is wonderful to see the ocean/bay from the living areas. All in all, this was a great experience for us and I would presume it would also be for most people. We highly recommend the home and the owner is very friendly, helpful, and cooperative so that makes the stay even more comfortable. Would definitely come back.
Thank you so much for the outstanding review so glad you all had a wonderful time
Look forward to your return in the future
