Overview

About the property

Cottage, w3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Whether you love sunning and swimming at the beach or fishing and boating on the bay you'll find the best of both worlds in Cape San Blas. The beach has been voted number one beach in America numerous times and St. Joseph's Bay is know to be one of the top fishing destinations as well. Our house, Sundance Cottage, happens to be right in the middle of both.

Nestled in the sand dunes of Cape San Blas, it is about 250 yards to the deeded accesses of both the beach and the bay. Sunbathers will enjoy the outdoor shower and bathroom after a day on the beach and fishermen will find the fish cleaning station a handy addition after a successful day of fishing. With ample parking underneath the house there is plenty of room to bring your boat or waverunners which can be launched at St. Joseph's State Park, just 2/10 of a mile from the house.

With three bedrooms and three baths (one is outside but the shower and toilet are enclosed), the house will comfortably sleep six people. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, cable TV, private bath, and French doors which lead onto the back deck that overlooks the dunes. There are no other homes behind ours so it is very private on the back deck. The other two bedrooms each have queen-size beds and share the full bath conveniently located in the hall. One of the queen bedrooms has cable TV as well.

Everyone will enjoy watching the 36' TV in the large, comfortable sofas and chairs. You may choose from our selection of movies or bring your favorite VHS tapes, DVD's and CD's to enjoy the entertainment center complete with cable TV, VCR, DVD, and CD player. Bring you laptop and get online with our broadband, wireless, high speed internet connection.

Since Cape San Blas is not known for restaurants and night life we keep the kitchen well stocked with plenty of cookware and utensils and the pantry stocked with spices and staples so you'll be able to cook your fresh catch of the day on the large stainless steel grill on the deck. There is also plenty of deck furniture for outdoor dining as well.

So if you're looking for a place that's somewhat off the beaten path you have found it here. Uncrowded beaches, endless shelling, fantastic fishing, or just boating around the bay are just a few of the things to do. Rent a bike and ride for miles, rent a kayak and ride the waves, or just enjoy the beautiful, serene enviornment with your friends and family. Cape San Blas is not just the 'forgotten coast'...it is also an undiscovered Paradise.

About Karen Jones

My husband and I share ownership of this home with his brother and wife. We all own and run a manufacturing business in Northeast Alabama including scaffold manufacturing as well as attachments for skid steers and excavators. In addition to using the home ourselves we allow our employees to vacation there and sometimes entertain customers there.

Karen Jones purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Karen Jones chose Port St. Joe

We first visited the area several years ago and absolutely fell in love with it. We've always vacationed in the panhandle...mostly Destin and it reminds us of what Destin used to be like when we were kids. We like the laid back atmosphere, uncrowded beaches, excellent fishing and peace and quiet.

What makes this cottage unique

Our home is only 2/10 of a mile from the entrance to St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park so if you bring a boat you are very close to the boat launch there. Additionally we have an excellent deeded beach access with only private homes there so the beach is never crowded. Our deeded bay access is great for fishing the grass flats for speckled trout and redfish as well as launching a kayak or canoe. Our neighborhood, Peninsula Estates, is very peaceful and quiet so most times you can still hear the surf from our outside decks.

St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park is just around the corner from our house. They have a boat ramp and dock for day docking plus large area on the bay for fishing from the land or wading the grass beds. If you love raw oysters you must visit the Indian Pass Raw Bar which is about a 10 minute drive from the house. Another good place for oysters and seafood is Triple Tails which you pass on the way to our house.

Owner's Response: This is a review that I feel is very helpful to my guests and to the point! Everyone looking for a beach vacation is looking for all these things in a rental especially if it's not a gulf front property. This says a lot about the location and access to the beach and those are the questions I get the most. Even though it is not right on the beach now my future guests know from a previous guest that our deeded beach access is quiet and easily accessible!

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and found the house to be very comfortable for six adults. It is very convenient to the state park. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes and cooking tools. The grill was a nice bonus too!

Owner's Response: We know that a lot of visitors to the Cape enjoy cooking a lot of their meals at the house to take advantage of being there to catch the gorgeous sunset views over the gulf every day of the year! That’s why we keep our kitchen well stocked and ready for you😊�

Wonderful house and location

  • 5 of 5

House is beautiful and equipped with everything you could need for both the household and recreation. The only hiccup we had was the internet being knocked out by a hurricane the week before we got here but the owners were quick to get the problem resolved and made us feel very welcome. Would definitely come back again!

Owner's Response: Sundance Cottage is located in a prime location perfectly situated between the beach and the bay with deeded access to both. Plus it's just around the corner from beautiful St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park so it's easy to take advantage of all the amenities offered there including a boat ramp and dock which is available for docking during the day.
