Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
