Why Linda Heavner Gerald chose Port St. Joe

After living in the Bahamas for sometime, Linda and Buddy started looking for a property stateside which would have the same appeal. Cape San Blas was their choice after months of previewing other areas. 'The rawness of the area is more appealing than the Caribbean. You will see Bald Eagles and much more. St. Joseph Peninsula State Park at the end of the Cape is a birding as well butterfly sanctuary. The people are the friendliest we have ever met and we have travelled all over the world.' Come, spend time staying active or just soaking up some rays by the most pristine water. Linda says the beaches are even more beautiful than the Caribbean. Check it out for yourself.

What makes this house unique

Brand new construction with the latest in appliances. Two covered balconies, private walkway shared with the one house next door. Three bedrooms and three baths will make space available for children and adults. Fully equipped kitchen and office. The office provides Wi-Fi, fax, and unlimited calls in the U.S. The kitchen is gorgeous! Granite counter and the latest in stainless steal. Bike path across from Lime Pie with rentals available here on the Cape. Alarm system even though it is not needed to provide peace of mind. Nothing has been overlooked. Pool available for public at local country club. The private shower outside is welcoming after a day in the sand. Cook your hamburgers on the grill where there is usually a nice breeze from the gulf. You can also enjoy the just added oversized rockers and swing.

Lime Pie-Our favorite beach house

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed at Lime Pie for the past 3 summers! We just love it there. It’s a quiet beach away from the touristy areas and they’ve done a lot of work to the beach rebuilding this year as well. We always see so many sea animals and creatures while we are there! The kids love all their finds! The house could not be better! From the hammock outside to the deck with the ocean breeze, it’s all amazing. Inside is always clean and in good order and is in great condition. We truly feel like it is our second home while we are there! We can not thank Linda enough for sharing her home with us the past several years so we could make such wonderful memories as a family!

Pictures don't do this home justice.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Lime Pie! The accommodations were spot on. Plenty of spaces to meet together or spend alone. The beach was bigger than pictured. The appliances were new and large and there were enough dishes to meet our needs.

Our host, Linda, is quick to respond and ensures that our stay is memorable. I would definitely rent from her again.

Gorgeous location and beautiful home right on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time in lime pie. The location on the beach was perfect! The home was immaculate, beautifully decorated and the view of the ocean was incredible! We loved the open floor plan. While I was preparing the meals I was able to look out at the ocean and talk with the rest of the guests that were there. We caught redfish, whiting, black drum, etc right from the rocks just down the beach from lime pie. Be sure to read some of Linda’s delightful books that are available at lime pie when you’re there! We’re counting the days till we can come back.

Cape San Blas
Car: recommended

Outside activities abound at Cape San Blas. From stepping outside your house onto a new bike path which extends the entire Cape to renting a boat to see the area a different way. There are cooking classes with dinner prepared in your kitchen by the chef if you desire. Antique shops allow the tourist to stroll the historic town of Port St. Joe with dinner available in one of the delightful restaurants. There is also a Spa downtown for a facial or massage as well as manicure or pedicure. The local country club is public so golf is available. Kayaks are available for renting as well as horseback riding. Cape San Blas is one of the few remaining coastal towns where you can ride on the beach. We are pet friendly at the Cape so put your dog on a leash and let him enjoy the beauty that our area offers. There is a pool available at the local country club.
