Cape San Blas

Car: Necessary

Cape san blas has its own worry-free character with miles of shell-strewn shoreline and countless opportunities for quiet adventures.

Cape san blas is a 17-mile long barrier peninsula, curving around st. Joseph bay offering playful surf and white sand beaches on the gulf side and smooth, shallow water on the bay side. The cape is known for its clear, sometimes blue, sometimes green water and low, gentle surf. Families who vacation on the cape choose this spot for both its beauty and its seclusion. Drag a chair to the beach with a book, throw a line to the surf, or comb the shore for treasures. Scattered with shells, the sand in this quiet paradise is super soft and sparkling white.

Tired of relaxing? Peddle, walk or jog along loggerhead run bike trail for a different view. Browse through eclectic beach stores, cool off with some ice cream or grab a few pounds of bay shrimp to steam while you watch the sun go down.

Looking for something more adventurous? Local outfitters will get you rigged. Horseback riding is available on the beach and guided tours are offered daily. Canoe, kayak and sailboat rentals are available as well as diving, snorkeling and eco-excursions.

Take the time to explore the bay. Wade through grassy flats, kayak with your kids and glide above two feet of water for miles. The clear, shallow water offers hours of safe play and discovery for little ones as well as adults. Sand dollars, starfish, scallops and schools of colorful fish are fun to find... Ten times more fun with a snorkel and mask!

Mare vista is at the tip of cape san blas adjacent to st. Joseph peninsula state park, home of america’s #1-ranked beach and america’s best state park!

Recognized as perhaps the most popular outdoor destination in the entire florida state park system. With miles of sugar-white sand beaches, striking coastal dune formations, nature trails, picnic areas, playground, 119 family camp sites, youth camping area, boat ramp, 1,900 acre wilderness preserve and more... It’s not hard to imagine why.

Hiking, walking and nature viewing is enjoyable on the two nature trails and 14 mile hiking trail through the wilderness preserve for you to explore and observe the various wildlife and plant communities. Many varieties of birds, mammals, and plants inhabit the park. White-tailed deer are the most observed, but bobcats, raccoons, otters, and alligators can be seen.

The excellent fishing opportunities for sea trout, redfish, flounder, pompano and whiting attract many fishermen to the area. Come during scallop season (july 1 - september 24) and catch your own bay scallops; it is great family fun and our bay scallops are some of the most delicious things you will ever eat!

If you want to relax and do nothing, check out eagle harbor. It is a popular hang-out area of the park with boat launch, small store with essentials, water toy rentals like kayaks, and one of the coolest viewpoints in all of gulf county! Walk up the boardwalk and take in the 360-degree view of st. Joseph bay on one side and the clear waters of the gulf beach on the other side. Both are great spots to put up your umbrella and let the kids play in the water.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Mare Vista is a brand new home built to the most exacting, custom standards by Langford Construction, known as the 'People Builders' for excellence in construction, design and comfort. Steve and Dana are now local residents after moving from Georgia where Steve was in the construction business for 40 years. They have 2 daughters, Mary Ann (Mare) and Dagny. Hence, 'Mare Vista'-Italian for Sea View. The Langfords have settled into Cape living and are involved in the community. They are usually seen riding their bikes on the 9 mile bike path and checking on their job sites.

Why the Owner Chose Port St. Joe, FL, USA:
Mare Vista was designed by local Architect, Chuck Wright, with your ultimate comfort in mind. 4 large bedrooms, each with large PRIVATE baths. There are screened porches on both levels offering magnificent views of the bay. Perfect corners to relax on a chaise, enjoy sunrise and coffee. Mare Vista offers every amenity. ... Living is easy with a gourmet kitchen and a great room to share those special family times. This home also comes with its own 17' INFINITY SWIMMING SPA which seats 10 as a hot tub or pool. A unique treat! ... Get your exercise in the privacy of your home or have a happy splash with the entire family.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Park Point @ Secluded Dunes is magical. It's smaller, tucked away, exclusive and quiet ... While we were building Mare Vista, we'd end the day in a trance listening to the wildlife and watching the twinkling lights of Port St. Joe come into sight as darkness fell, reminding us of our other favorite place, Positano, on the Amalfi coast in Italy.
