About the property

4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, Sleeps 9

Gulf front, 4 bedroom, 4 bath home in the gated community of Secluded Dunes. This classic one level Florida style home features a residential elevator and a spacious screened in porch. Pets Not Allowed. Located in the small, quiet, gated community of Secluded Dunes, this recently remodeled Florida Beach style home with wrap around covered porches, is right on the gulf. Built just a few hundred yards away from St. Joseph's Bay State Park, the neighborhood is surrounded by natural landscapes and abounds with assorted wildlife. For your visit to Heath House you will have room to park 3 cars under cover, another in the drive, or park your boat in the roadside space.

A few steps up to the house lands you on a large covered deck, perfect for appreciating the glorious sunrises over the pines of the state park. Entering Heath House you will be impressed with its colorfully decorated rooms and how its design brings in the sun light through lots of windows, glass doors, and sky lights . With a large, fully equipped, open kitchen you will have all you need to create that perfect beach dinner. There is a laundry closet on the left, and a few more steps bring you to a large open great room, with breakfast bar, dining table, buffet, double sofas, TV, VCR, DVD, stereo, and sweeping views of the gulf.

Watch for the dolphin playing in the surf as you step out the glass doors and find you are on a large screen porch with dining table, comfortable chairs, lounges, and another step out to an open sundeck. This is the second best spot to toast in the best sunsets around. There is a master king bedroom with a private bath that opens to the screen porch and gulf view, the master queen bedroom with private bath that also opens to the screen porch and gulf view. The third bedroom is set up for adults or children with 2 twin beds, and an optional third twin trundle and its own private bathroom. The fourth bedroom has a very good quality queen convertible sofa bed and a desk for those few working moments. For your convenience there is wireless internet, and unlimited long distance. The fourth bathroom can be exclusive to the fourth bedroom, or open to the great room. A residential passenger elevator will assist our guests to a one level home and sweeping views of the gulf. . There is a handheld shower in one bath for convenience.There is an outside shower, screened in porch area and an open deck area facing the gulf. The home has a library as well as games.

The house is SMOKE-FREE, NO PETS ALLOWED, private home. We have an age restriction that dictates reservations will not be accepted for students or singles under age 25 unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian during the entire stay. Chaperoned groups are also not accepted.

Guestbook comments from the manager

There were many days when the only living creatures we saw were the porpoises playing offshore, the pelicans diving for fish, or the deer in the back yard munching away on the clover. On other busier days, we might see a few actual people walking their dogs along the shore. Heath House is in well-named Secluded Dunes, and sits right on the beautiful white sand beach 100 yards from the gentle surf, protected by a small sand dune formation. The layout of the house, a huge great room/dining room/kitchen open to the sea view, and with ample bedrooms and bathrooms at its four corners, is eminently usable. A deck, screened to the front, surrounds the home, and an electric elevator makes elemental the movement of luggage or groceries to the second floor. Our family cannot imagine a better beach vacation home than Heath House, nor a more tranquil and beautiful natural environment than Cape San Blas near -- but not too near! -- Port St Joe on the "Forgotten Coast" of Florida's Panhandle.

Reviewer Comments:

If you want a quiet retreat then this is the place! The location was great--away from the hustle. The accommodations were more than adequate and the elevator was a real plus. Beautiful sunset views with dolphins swimming by from the deck or screened in porch. The living area was open and spacious and the master king bedroom and bath were fantastic. Only suggestion for the owner would be to upgrade the sofa and loveseat in the living room as they are quite worn and broken down.

We have three teens, and we had plenty of room for all. The home was so clean which is my top priority as we have children who have allergies and asthma. The home had everything we needed so we were comfortable, and we're able to prepare fresh home cooked meals for our family. We appreciate the wonderful vacation home, Heath House, that the owners kindly share with vacationers. We felt more like guests of family friends than renters. The neighbors and neighborhood were very nice as well. A wonderful relaxing place you enjoy your family.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a great Florida "throw back" beach house with AMAZING views!!! Whether you were inside or out, you always felt like you were sitting at the water's edge. The decor is throw back style: rattan, blues and yellow. From the moment you walk in and see that view and the home's decor compliments the emerald water; you are SOLD! Great vacation and Jerry Hart provided excellent customer service!!! Be back for sure!!!

Beach Vacation 2016

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your house with us. It was clean and well stocked and on a very nice beach. We have been here several times and this part of the beach was the prettiest and had clear water. There are plenty of beach toys, chairs etc. I would recommend this house to anyone.

We have a son in a wheelchair and the house being all on one level was great. Unfortunately, when we arrived the elevator did not work. The property manager worked tirelessly 2 days getting the repair done. Also we did not have hot water the first couple of days. The property manager, Jerry, stepped in again to get it repaired in one day. He is great!

Hope to visit the cape again next year!

Thanks!!!

Reviewer Comments:

Very comfortable and well appointed home away from home. Located on the least crowded part of the populated Cape. Great beach and while we were there, a very large tidal pond which the grandsons enjoyed. About the only thing I would add would be a beach umbrella. The outdoor shower, elevator and covered parking were extra wonderful!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Heath House in Secluded Dunes of Cape San Blas, Florida. We are thrilled you had "too much fun" and invite you to return again soon to the Cape and to the Heath House. This one level beach front home is on the best beach of the Cape and has the best views of the gulf. The fall is really nice on the Cape so try to come for a fall visit if you can.
