About the Property

3 bedroom, 3 bath, freshly remodeled, private single family, Gulf-fronthome,

Are you dreaming of recapturing the beach vacation of your youth ? Remember the simple pleasures of walking barefoot on a wide, crystal-white sand shoreline and floating carefree in the warm, tranquil gulf water, or reclining in your lounger while listening to the seagulls and watching the dolphins glide by just off-shore ? After toasting an amazing crimson sunset, the gathered wood is coaxed into a welcoming roaring bonfire, that invites you to roast marshmallows, chill and prepare your expectations for another great day in the morning.
If you are dreaming of again enjoying those endless lazy days relaxing on an expansive, uncrowded, pristine sugar-white sand beach, then you are dreaming of a Moonshadow vacation !
Moonshadow is a freshly remodeled, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom 'jewel-box' of a gulf-front vacation house, with all the amenities you expect, and deserve, to fulfill your beach get-away dream.
The kitchen is all new, from the high-end stainless appliances to the solid surface counters and cherry cabinets. All three bedrooms have brand-new luxurious king bedding and flat-panel tvs with blu-ray dvd players. En suite bathrooms adjoin two master bedrooms, and the third bedroom shares the hall guest bath.
The spacious family room features beautiful water-front vistas, as well as a 60 inch plasma tv, when you are in the movie-watching or gaming mode !
Every room in the house has ceiling fans, including the comfortable screened porch/outdoor dining room.
When you venture outside, the gas bbq is ready to grill your meal to perfection, while you lounge in the nearby hammock.
There is carport parking under the house, as well as generous space to store your watercraft, etc. In front. There is a large storage room, containing chairs, 'floaties' and other toys to assure that you fully enjoy the beach, as well as a cart to carry your possessions to the welcoming white sands.
Upon your return, there is a convenient, private outdoor shower to rinse off before you go inside.
If you still want to 'catch some rays', there is a large 8' x 30' deck off the family room and/or screened porch, also ideal for just 'vegging'.
Hopefully, you have now arrived at the conclusion that Moonshadow is ready to welcome you back to the beach, and to help you realize your dream vacation !

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are Gulf-coast natives, who grew up in this area, have traveled, lived and worked all over the country, and have had the good-sense and good-fortune to have returned to this paradise. We have experienced the beach communities on both coasts, and know with confidence that none compare to the special, unspoiled gem here at Cape San Blas.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
Moonshadow is blessed to be located in the most private, unpopulated section of beautiful Cape San Blas. As such, it affords you the ultimate venue to experience the peacefulness of the wide sugar-white sand beach without the often annoying distraction of 'too much humanity'.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the moment you step into this comfortable, welcoming retreat, you begin to relax, decompress and realize that this house will afford you the experience you have been dreaming about. It is a special blend of modern amenities and conveniences, and yet 'laid-back', care-free ambiance, that helps you escape back to the beach vacation you remember, and will soon experience again.
