The home sleeps 8 comfortably, each room includes a TV with satellite cable. Lion's Paw has a screened in back porch where you can sip a glass of wine and enjoy the sounds of real Florida nature. The well-appointed kitchen includes all the tools and amenities to meet your cooking needs. Early risers will enjoy rocking on the front porch and watching the sun rise over St. Joseph's Bay. Wifi and free-long distance calls are included.
Lion's Paw is adjacent to St. Joseph's State Park, a mecca for scalloping, fishing, shelling, sunning, and boating. Named Dr. Beach's #1 Beach in 2004, the beach at Sunset Pointe consists of sugar white sands, large dunes, world-class shells, breathtaking sunsets, and daily dolphin sightings. Just a short 5 minute walk across a beautiful wooden boardwalk where you chance to spot an owl, deer, eagle, or maybe even a bobcat, brings you to the beach. Don't forget to grab the four beach chairs for the ultimate in relaxation for your day at the beach.
Sunset Pointe at Secluded Dunes is where you can truly get away from it all. Enclosed in a private gated community on a spectacular natural Florida wetland, your family will make many memories here. After a day in the sun with your toes in the sand, stop by the gated private pool to cool off.
On the Cape, there are two grocery and sundry stores to provide you with all your needs for your stay in Lion's Paw. If you are hankering for top-notch, world-famous seafood, just a quick jaunt into Port St. Joe or Apalachicola will satisfy your cravings. Indian Pass Raw Bar, commonly featured in Southern Living and Garden & Gun offers a unique local experience that you'll never forget.
If you tire of lying in the sun, Port St. Joe provides boat rentals, deep-sea fishing trips, scalloping adventures, and more. Apalachicola boasts many charming shops and incredible restaurants, making for a fun afternoon trip.

Elaine enjoys shelling the shores of the Cape and Mike's favorite activity is long walks to the tip of the Cape. Their 2 grown children, Michelle & Mark, love visiting Cape San Blas with their spouses.

Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
We chose Lion's Paw because of it's secluded and breathtaking location. The 'Real Florida' wetlands that the home is located on and the short walk to the pristine beaches offer a all-encompassing idea of what Florida truly is.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Named Lion's Paw after the famous children's novel by Robb White, Elaine has worked hard to instill a bit of the classic tale in the home. Children and adults alike will love the 'ship bunk room' on the second floor. Hanging beds and a rounded ceiling will transport you inside the pages of 'The Lion's Paw.' While you are enjoying the beach, bring along our provided copy of the novel and you'll fall in love with the story, too. Perhaps you will even discover a Lion's Paw shell or two hidden around the home.
