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 Port St. Joe

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.

                                                        Family Spring Break

                                                        Robert P.Argyle, Texas

                                                        Toes in the Sand was a great place for us to gather our family from the “four corners” for spring break 2018. The place is perfectly located. You can be on a beautiful beach with just a short walk, or in one of several good seafood restaurants with a short drive. We had 8 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is adequately equipped for quick meals, and the screened in porch is perfect for breakfast. Joyce was very helpful and attentive.

                                                        Very peaceful place

                                                        I absolutely loved my stay! It was like being at home. Warm and inviting. I couldn't have picked a better location for family time with my daughter and son n law.

                                                        I will definitely be back!!

                                                        Very comfortable home with great screened in porch. Good supplies available (paper towels, dishwasher detergent, etc.) for our short term stay. Comfortable seating in living room for our 6 adults. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of dishes for us to cook a meal. Also plenty of linens.

                                                        awesome, quiet beach retreat. If you can't get some R&R here, go see a doctor.

                                                        Jamie M.

                                                        I will definitely stay here again. Quiet and relaxing. Close to beach boardwalk. Great screened In porch for pets or to relax on when it rains. House has all the ammenities.

                                                        Located in a great, quiet neighborhood.

                                                        The House has everything you needed for a 5 plus day stay at the beach. Plenty of room for everyone to feel combfortable . The Homeowner was more than accommodating and easy to communicate with. Like I said, my wife and another couple are already planning another vacation at this property. Overall 5 stars!!

                                                        The house was very nice in size and well maintained. I couldn't get dishwasher to come on. I sent Joyce an email to make her a ware for the next renter and she called me within minutes. It was a operator error LOL.

                                                        We all loved to sit on screened in porch in mornings and night. Beach wasn't crowded and people in the area were very nice. We would stay there again for sure.
