About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath (sleeps 8) steps from the beach

This custom home is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Florida’s Forgotten Coast. There are miles of unspoiled, soft, sandy beaches to enjoy with friends and family. The beaches of Cape San Blas were voted one of the top ten in the US, known for great fishing, shell hunting, swimming or just relaxing. With its' extra-fine white sand & stunning aquamarine water it is truly a paradise for those looking for a fantastic quiet get away.

This spacious upscale Gulf-front home is beautifully decorated with Italian tile throughout. The main living area and kitchen are located on the top floor for optimal gulf views throughout the day. As for the sunset, it’s as if it sinks right in your living room with a different show every night. Although we love animals, we want to keep the house as nice as possible, therefore, there are absolutely no pets allowed!

The kitchen is well equipped featuring quartz counter tops, custom cabinets & stainless steel appliances. From the gourmet chef to the crock pot enthusiast, you will find everything you are looking for to make the perfect meal including seating for ten and a grill on the back deck.

The spacious master bedroom opens to a private covered deck where you can enjoy your morning coffee as the beach comes alive and the dolphins play. The master bath has dual sinks with quartz counter tops, a soaking tub, and the perfect shower after a long day at the beach.

Bedroom number two is located on the quiet first floor as well. This room is also very spacious, with a queen sized iron bed, a private deck, flat screen TV, and an upscale dual sink private bath.

The third bedroom has two sets of twin bunk beds, a private deck, a flat screen TV, and another beautiful bathroom.

The area offers horseback riding, deep sea fishing, bike rentals, golfing, tennis, and of course shopping. Take advantage of the paved trail stretching the length of the Cape for walking or bike riding. Or Saint Joesph State park, located at the end of the Cape with access to the bay and amazing scalloping.

Excellent! Perfect Vacation Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation! We love Cape San Blas, the beaches are never crowded & it is so pretty! This house was absolutely perfect & we will definitely come back here again! It is extremely clean, very spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was very well equipped and the beds are super comfy too! You can tell the owners really care about their guests. We sat on the back porch every evening to watch the beautiful sunset. The views of the Gulf are spectacular! Being right on the beach is amazing! As they say, location, location, location! Also, having the Trading Post store right down the road is an added bonus. They have everything from groceries, liquor to homemade donuts, yum :)

This place is a slice of paradise and would highly recommend it !!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at A Rendezvous at Turtle Dunes, and we loved it this time just as much as the first time; iIt is so quiet and relaxing and pretty much perfect. The house is amazing, clean, comfortable, well appointed, and well stocked. The beautiful beach and ocean are just steps away. The little local grocery store, ice cream and coffee shop, a little local restaurant that has fabulous fish tacos, and another little place with homemade donuts are within short walking distance from the back door. And there is also yoga and a place to rent kayaks also with in a short distance from the back door. We absolutely love this place, and Kim and Pristine Properties are so pleasant and easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your home with us; we cannot wait to return again next year.

Schoggen Family Vacation in September 2017

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful vacation home !!

The views were so pretty. The boardwalk was very nice and the grandchildren really enjoyed the area under the house for evening playtime. The outdoor shower was so nice and really helped out in washing all the sandy kids.

The decorations and style of the house was airy and light. The outdoor deck furniture was really comfortable and had lots of seating for large crowds. The kitchen was large and roomy, that was a good thing since we had three cooking. We ate all of our meals in and having St. Joes Fish Market in walking distance was a huge plus for us.

Trading Post, Ice cream shop, Dounuts, and ice right up the road was so convenient and met all our needs. The Scallop Cove store was a great rental for our 2 man Kayak and the local beer on tap was a huge plus, and we filled out growlers up.

Having the cute souvenirs and beach shop was nice for shopping.

Loved the house and hope to revisit next year !!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, we try hard and I am glad it shows! I am even more excited to find out the fish company finally opened up. Having fresh seafood available on the Cape without the drive into Port Saint Joe is fantastic. Thank you for choosing our home, and please come stay with us again. Kim

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at A Rendezvous at Turtle Dunes over Labor Day weekend and loved it. We can't wait to go back. Cape San Blas is a truly unique and wonderful place. We hope it stays as peaceful as it is now. This house is perfectly located- the beach is just steps away and is a bit wider here than in other nearby spots. You can clearly see the beach from the porches which was helpful for when we were at the house and the kids ran back and forth. There's an ice cream shop, a general store, and a restaurant at the end of the block as well. The house itself is great, nicely decorated and has a beautiful master bedroom. The kitchen has everything you'll need. This house does not allow pets which would be the only reason we would ever choose another house if we went back, its really great. The property manager is also very helpful and easy to work with. Thanks for a great vacation.

What a wonderful weekend get away. Can't say enough about this beautiful house. The sunsets from our balcony where stunning. Love the white sandy beach. It's the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle. Truly looking forward to next year.

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Rendezvous. The house was VERY nice, very clean. The kitchen was big, well stocked with everything you'd need. Loved the location - close to the ice cream and donut place !! We had two couples that shared the place, but there was room for many more. One last comment - Pristene Properties were great to work with. Plenty of communications on the rental, what to bring, information on the area etc. Highly recommend it.

About The Owner

Our family lives in Gainesville GA, just north of Atlanta. We have always loved the water and look forward to many happy memories on the Cape.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Port St. Joe

We are the new proud owners of this great beach house. We looked all over FL, and just fell in love with the Cape and this house. We plan on passing our home down for generations, so that the families to come can laugh and love as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

This house is perfect for us because it's big enough for two families to share, or for our girls to bring friends, yet not too big if it's just my husband and I.
