About the Property
Cottage, w3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
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.

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.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
