About the Property

Beautiful views in an updated, comfortable home. 3 Bedrooms; 3.5 Baths

Dune Rise is an updated, stylish and spacious 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath townhouse sitting just 100 yards off the beach and close to the pool in the SeaCliffs community of Cape San Blas. As our family's vacation home, we've made it comfortable and accommodating for guests as well. When you book with us, you will receive personal one-on-one attention from the time you book until you arrive home.

Beautiful and unobstructed gulf views from three large covered balconies bring the sights and sounds of our sugar-sand beach right to your back door. Relax on the uncrowded beaches of Cape San Blas' peaceful northern end. Cool off in the large SeaCliffs pool. Explore the adjacent St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park.

And keep the comforts of home with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen, large comfortable rooms, true high-speed Internet with whole-house Wi-Fi, full-featured HDTV entertainment system with digital cable, Blu-ray/DVD player and Roku with HBO Now, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video streaming, and free long-distance phone service. Each bedroom also has a TV with Roku and Netflix streaming.

The home features a private in-house elevator for convenience and all home linens (bed linens, bath towels, hand towels, washcloths and dish cloths) are provided and set up fresh and clean for your arrival.

To your rental fee, add just a $135 cleaning/linens fee, 12% sales / tourism tax and any "service fee" HomeAway / VRBO may charge you (we do not set those fees nor receive money from them - please check your quoted total before booking). Reservations are secured with a deposit of 50% of rent, fees and taxes with the balance and refundable $250 security deposit due 30 days before arrival.

You may email me with any questions (see "Send email" link in the booking area) Please note that we are no longer booking stays with pets. Also note that our calendar is always up to date (subject to pending reservations); no need to confirm your selected dates are open before booking. The "Request To Book" button on VRBO is the quickest and easiest way to book your stay.

Our cancellation policy is as follows (please note that there is a minimum cancellation fee that may not be reflected in what VRBO displays - because VRBO no longer allows managers to display policies that fall outside their templates even though policies are set by the Rental Agreement). There is a $100 minimum cancellation fee. Bookings canceled at least 60 days before the start of the stay will receive a 100% refund less $100. Bookings canceled at least 30 days before the start of the stay will receive a 50% refund less $100. Bookings canceled less that 30 days before the start of the stay will not receive a refund.

House details:

On the entry floor you will find a full-sized washer/dryer, space for beach equipment storage and the convenient elevator. We try to keep out some basic beach chairs, umbrellas and beach toys for visitor use, but it’s not possible to say what will be there at any given time (things tend to come and go with guests sometimes). Outside there is a deep covered parking area (can accommodate up to three vehicles) and outdoor shower with hot and cold water plus a full-sized gas grill.

The second level is the main living space, with a spacious, well-equipped kitchen and comfortable living room.

The full kitchen features both a microwave and convection countertop oven in addition to a new electric range, both a coffee maker and coffee grinder plus a small Keurig machine, a kettle for tea or hot drinks, a crock pot for easy meal-making and functional and stylish dish and glass ware. The eat-in kitchen features a six-seat dining table as well as a four-seat comfortable bar area.

The living room features a long, comfortable sofa/chaise and a full-size sleeper sofa in an open layout. And because downtime is important, we've provided the best of modern home entertainment. On the 47” HDTV you can enjoy a full digital HD cable TV package, DVR and premium movie programming. The TV is equipped with a Roku player offering HBO Now, Netflix and Amazon Prime streaming services. There is also a Blu-ray / DVD player. Whole-house Wi-Fi delivers true high-speed Internet to your laptops, tablets and mobile devices. The house telephone offers free, unlimited calling anywhere in the U.S. with crystal-clear wireless handsets throughout the house.

On the large main floor balcony you'll find a comfortable six-seat outdoor dining set as well as an extra seating area.

The third level features two guest rooms, each with a private bath. The room on the balcony side is a Queen room and the room on the driveway side has two Twin beds. Both guest rooms feature new linens, flat-screen televisions and Roku players with Netflix streaming. The Twin room also features a DVD player. There is a Pack’N Play with mattress for small children (you will need to supply your own linens) as well as a high chair and baby gates for small-child comfort. The Twin room has enough space to sleep "extra" children on the floor and all rooms have enough space to fit the Pack'N Play. The balcony of the Queen room features two comfortable chaise lounges as well as adirondack chairs.

The fourth level is a private Master Suite with a new King bed, large bathroom and balcony featuring fantastic gulf views. The fourth level is cooled by a separate central air conditioning unit, eliminating the problem of high temperatures on the upper floors of SeaCliffs units. The Master Suite also has a TV with Roku player for Netflix streaming. Soak in the views and sounds of the gulf on the comfortable outdoor sofa or adirondack chairs, which makes the Master Suite a true private escape.

Dune Rise is not just a vacation rental unit, it is also our family beach retreat. So you'll find touches that make the home comfortable and relaxing; not just cheap to operate as a rental unit. We want our guests to have as great a time as we do on the peninsula.

Dune Rise came on the rental market in 2013 and we've been very pleased to have such positive comments from our guests, including several who have become regular visitors. We believe if you choose our home for your Cape San Blas vacation you'll want to come back again and again. VRBO's booking system can be a little confusing, so let us know if you have any questions. When availability permits, we are happy to accommodate rentals of less than 7 days. Contact us for pricing and availability of shorter stays.

We look forward to introducing you to Dune Rise.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My wife and I live in Atlanta; she works in digital media and I'm in charge of our two kids and projects like Dune Rise. Both of our careers have been built online, and we're excited to have tools like VRBO that can help us connect to others who are looking for the kind of beach experience we have always enjoyed and are crafting with our own touches at Dune Rise. I manage Dune Rise personally, which means I'm always available and happy to answer questions before or during your stay and work to resolve any issues that arise quickly. My primary concern is that our guests have the best vacation possible at our beach home.

Why Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
We've vacationed on the Cape for more than a decade and are thrilled to now have a place of our own that we can share with those who know the secrets of 'the Forgotten Coast'. After our first daughter was born we found SeaCliffs because it had a pool but was still small enough to give us the peace and quiet we look for, and when a great unit just 100 yards off the beach came up for sale we decided to become SeaCliffs owners ourselves. We've enjoyed making the home our own and are always adding touches we hope our guests enjoy as well.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Simply put, the proximity to the beach and the views from the three balconies sold us on this property and is what we hope our visitors will really enjoy about Dune Rise. We chose the name Dune Rise because the unit sits right behind the wonderful tall dunes of SeaCliffs ... the dunes rise in front of the home with the beach and gulf right behind. Having the sights, sounds and smells of the beach right at your back doors in a comfortable, spacious home is just fantastic.
