About the Property

Spacious 3BR 4BA Beach House with Open Floor Plan

Enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the open upper deck or the lower covered deck and watch dolphins frolic in the ocean waves. Cape San Blas is still one of the last secluded beaches in Florida, but only minutes from shopping and restaurants. The beach is wide and filled with shells. You will enjoy watching the pelicans gliding over your head and the shore birds scampering in the surf looking for their next meal. At night the sky is black and you will see more stars than you ever thought imaginable.

'Sabu' is filled with windows, so you can enjoy the view from practically every room in this Gulf front home. Come and enjoy this spacious beach house with only sand and water in front of you. All you need to do when you walk through the door is start having fun

Bright colors greet you as you enter the home. The kitchen with granite countertops is nicely stocked. There is a wet bar with a free standing ice machine to fuel cocktail hour or to fill a cooler for a day on the beach.

The great room features tile flooring, comfy couches and lots of seating for movie watching or just relaxing. Teal, tourquoise and orange colors play up the beautiful views of the Gulf of Mexico. You have a view of the Gulf from every seat. The TV has a DVD player, digitial music and Internet connectivity for viewing Facebook, You Tube or just browsing the web.

Each floor has a Master Suite that consists of two rooms seperated by bi fold doors, and a full bath. Both of these suites offer sweeping views of the Gulf. When you enter the suite you have your bath to the left and your king bed to the right. Through the bifold doors is the sitting room with sleeper sofa. This layout is great for a family who needs extra sleeping quarters or for couples who want to have happy hour together then retire to their own rooms for some private time.

The third bedroom sleeps up to 4 also. There is a twin over full bunk bed with a twin trundle. It has its own private bath as well.

Each Bedroom has a Smart TV and DVD.

The beach is a short boardwalk away and an outdoor shower rinses the sand and sun away. Come to Sabu and seek your bliss.

Location

Car: Necessary

SABU is nestled on the peninsula of Cape San Blas, between Port St. Joe, Florida and Appalachicola, Fl.

Twenty miles to the east on Hwy 98,find Appalachicola,the seafood capital of the Gulf Coast. This eclectic downtown sits at the mouth of the Appalachicola River and offers the best shrimp, oysters, scallops, blue crab and fish the Gulf Coast can offer. The fisherman unload their boats at docs just off the main streets.

There are quaint seafood restaurants and kitchy shops offering antiques, books and souvenirs. Piggly Wiggly offers groceries.

Ten miles to the west on Hwy 98, find Port St. Joe has a super little downtown with a Mexican Restaurant and other happening spots. There is a beautiful Marina for Deep Sea fishing, and a casual waterfront dining restaurant. Piggly Wiggly, Ace Hardware and Dollar General Market can provide sundries and other necessities. Port St. Joe is 10 miles or so.

Kayaking and Scalloping is available through Happy Ours Kayaks which is located across the street from our neighborhood on the Cape. You can walk right across the street. With an appointment, you can get all the snorkling gear and a boat to go out on St. Joseph's Bay for exploration.

Keep an eye out for the horses on the beach! There are several local horseback riding outfits that can get you saddled up for an afternoon riding along the shoreline. Don't forget to wave when you pass SABU! Your tour will go right past the house!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My name is James and my wife of 16 years is Mary. We live in Dunedin, Florida when we aren't enjoying our beach home at the Cape. We love to travel, particularly in our RV.

Why the Owner Chose Port Saint Joe, FL, USA:
We choose this area to buy our vacation home because is it truely the forgotten coast of Florida. While the rest of Florida's coastline goes wall to wall condos, Cape San Blas remains that small beach community of our childhoods. Port St. Joe and Appalach still have that small town feel where everyone knows and cares about you.
