About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Spacious, bright and nicely furnished, this gulf view home is located in a quiet, little beachfront community. Great first tier location with a nice view of the gulf from the screened porch, sundeck and upstairs bedroom. Just steps from the deck are two neighborhood boardwalks to the beach. Take your pick since both are about 300 feet long and take you to the pristine, uncrowded and incredibly beautiful beach. You'll have no problem finding a special spot and you may be one of only a few people on the beach.

The home is located a short walking distance from Salina's Park; only 12 minutes driving time to Port St Joe and less than 30 minutes to historical Apalachicola. The St. Joe Country Club is only six miles away if you want to play a round of golf.

This 1800 sq.ft. home features plenty of open space for the entire family to spend time together or find a quiet spot for relaxing. The light filled main floor is very open, comfortable and nicely furnished. This main level features a large, well equipped kitchen with all the necessities and more. You'll enjoy meals in the spacious dining area with family size dining table and chairs and breakfast bar. Prefer outdoor dining? Catch a nice breeze and take in the view on the screened porch while you enjoy your meal. The living room offers lots of comfortable seating, fireplace, large, flat screen TV, and book library. You'll love the screened porch with a view of the gulf and also a private wooded view to the side. It's the ideal place for relaxing or enjoying meals or happy hour. If you want to work on your tan between trips to the beach you'll find the deck perfect for soaking up the Florida sun.

Newly remodeled upstairs includes three bedrooms featuring a private, nicely furnished master bedroom with queen bed and private bath. Down the hall is the newly remodeled main bath with double vanity and separate tub and toilet area. Next to the bath is the newly remodeled second queen size bedroom and at the end of the hall is a large bedroom with 1 single bed and 1 single over full bunk bed. All three bedrooms are large, private, nicely furnished. All bedrooms have TV's and comfortable bedding.

There is plenty of covered parking under the house. An outdoor shower with direct access to the main floor bathroom is especially convenient. The large space under the house also offers extra outdoor living space with plenty of room for the additional table & chairs, swing and Weber charcoal grill.

Toes In The Sand is a wonderful place to kick back and enjoy a peaceful, private beach vacation with everything you need. Cape San Blas is the kind of place that almost doesn't exist anymore; safe, peaceful and tranquil. We want to make sure you enjoy your stay here.

About Joyce Hunt

The owners of Toes In The Sand live in Mountain Rest, S. C. and love spending time at the beach with family and friends.

Joyce Hunt purchased this house in 2001

Why Joyce Hunt chose Florida Main North West

We discovered Cape San Blas in the mid 1990's while visiting family vacationing there. We fell in love with the area's natural setting. Quiet, uncrowded and one of the most beautiful beaches we had seen. We returned for several years and when the house we had been renting went up for sale we couldn't resist buying our little piece of paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed with two of our adult children and their spouses and enjoyed ourselves. The location is great; it is only a boardwalk to the beach and the beach was great. The house is large enough that we all had enough space without feeling on top of each other.

Toes in the Sand! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent several days at Toes in the Sand with our son and his family (2 toddlers and a dog) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house had everything we needed (and more!), was very clean and the layout was perfect.

The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils, dishes, etc. needed to cook meals for the family. There is a full sized washer and dryer in the laundry closet in the kitchen - very convenient.

The screened in porch was the perfect place to eat dinner and hang out in the evening or enjoy coffee in the morning. I think it was our favorite feature!

The three bedrooms were all a good size. The master bedroom with en-suite bathroom provided a nice retreat for us, while the second bedroom with queen size bed was near the large 3rd bedroom which had bunk beds and a twin bed and room to spare!

The main floor was open and bright and the 3rd bathroom was convenient and had an exterior door that provided another entry when returning from the beach. There's also an outdoor shower just below the stairs.

There was a big tub of beach toys which we didn't use (had brought our own), but what a nice perk! And there is ample parking for 2 cars under the house.

The house is far enough from the main road that traffic noise was not a problem. While we were there, there were few other renters, so it was very quiet. In fact, we had almost the entire beach to ourselves! Wonderful!

There's a limited view of the gulf from the deck. The walk to the beach was a bit farther than we'd hoped, but was definitely do-able, even with 2 little ones and all the beach stuff.

We simply had a great time! We are looking forward to a return visit soon! Thank you Joyce!

Property is nice, you can tell they are slowly renovating. Screened in porch is amazing! Beach was never busy, very quiet and relaxing. We will be back at some point in the future.

Great for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and comfortable. Having the 3rd bedroom adjacent to the master bedroom worked out wonderfully with my 2 year old. We loved that we could walk to the beach and that the house came with lots of beach chairs and beach toys. We'd definitely consider coming back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I'm glad that you enjoyed both your stay at Toes In The Sand and also appreciated the close proximity to the beach. Short walks to and from the beach are definitely desirable with a two year old. Look forward to hearing from you again. Joyce 11/30/16 UPDATE TO EARLIER RESPONSE: We have just completed a major remodel of the bedroom area eliminating the two connected bedrooms and creating three large completely private bedrooms. Master with private bath and two remaining bedrooms sharing large bath with double vanity.

house close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

Toes in the Sand is a lovely place, very well equipped, quiet, and close to the beach. Great layout of holiday home with living and dining space on one floor and the bedrooms above. Three entrances to living area - one through downstairs bathroom, which made showering off children after beach excursions very easy. The house was very clean and well-maintained. Great location. Would recommend this holiday rental to friends and family.
