About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Baths, 4 Baths on beautiful St. Joe Bay

BayDream is the dream home I always wanted. Many unique ideas went into the building of this beautiful place. In fact it was not built with the intention of renting at all. Having aging parents who live a few hours away and need my help has made it necessary for me to be away a great deal of time. So rather than sit empty I'd like to have people in my home who will appreciate and take good care of it. The living area and kitchen is open and state of the art. A HUGE island with 5 Barstools seperate the kitchen from living. The wall that faces the Bay is called a NANA Wall and looks like beautiful french doors when closed, but open to walk out or open it up completely so the living room is open to the 13 X 24 covered porch! There is also a screened porch, 12 X 29 featuring a wood burning fireplace and outdoor kitchen. There are two additional gas fireplaces, one in the living room and one in the Master Suite. The Master has a beautiful plantation king size bed. The second floor is all Master Suite. The other two bedrooms are down stairs on the main level, each with its own bathroom. One king and one queen bed. Many, Many more features and too many to describe. If more space is required, look at my rental VRBO 255237 to combine with BayDream and sleep 12. These two rentals are one half acre apart and share the 500' dock.

Sitting on St. Joseph Bay, you will not find any place more beautiful. Bring your boat and leave in the water for your stay at the 500' dock on the bay. Sit on the hugh covered porch and see Osprey, Bald Eagles....yes Eagles not just one every now and is a Birder's Paradise! Bring your fishing boat or kayak and enjoy the broad expansive Bay...or ride over to Blacks Island.

Grab your beach chair and go to the beach via the public beach access across the street and a few yards to right of driveway, ride your bikes, or walk the dog on our wonderful bike path newly completed. The State Park is only a mile and a half away.

For a great day trip, Panama City is a little over an hour away, Appalachicola is a 20 minute drive,Tallahassee 2 hours.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Now semi retired, I previously enjoyed a career in Sales and Sales Management. Bought property at the Cape in 1994 and spent a lot of time day dreaming about what I'd like to build...thus the name 'Bay Dream' because it is just that... my bay dream.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
This is my personal home, although I do have another house next door that is a vacation rental I manage as well. For many years it was my dream to be able to live in this beautiful paradise. But, it has become necessary to help care for my parents 55 miles away. Now, it is practical to offer BayDream to others for part of the year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
My dog Max(Standard Poodle) and I love taking sunset walks on the beautiful and uncrowded beaches or bike path. It seems that I always have a project going and love looking for that perfect something in the quaint shops of Appalachicola or Port St. Joe. In summer, well that's boating season and also scallop season. Not sure what is more fun catching fish, crab, and scallops, or EATING them! Great place for entertaining friends and family. Bay dream is the perfect place for just that!
