** Great news - the house, and the Jubilation subdivision as a whole came through Hurricane Michael in excellent shape. All services to the house, including internet, electricity, water and gas are working normally. The neighborhood boardwalk to the beach and some pool equipment were damaged, but it appears that repairs will be complete by the end of November. In the meantime, alternative means of accessing the beach are available. More restaurants and stores in the area are opening back up every week.
We will continue to post updates as news come available. Please keep all residents and property owners in the area in your thoughts, and consider donating to the recovery effort through the NW Florida Red Cross or one of the many other charities working in the community.**
Brise Del Mar is a beautiful ocean view property in the exclusive gated Jubilation subdivision on Cape San Blas. The house offers views of the Gulf, an amazing front porch, serene setting, and a luxurious interior. The house is also adjacent to the neighborhood pool which has spectacular views to the Gulf.
Brise Del Mar's large Southern-style front porch is the perfect setting for enjoying a morning cup of coffee listening to the peaceful sound of the breaking surf. Stroll down the adjacent boardwalk to one of the quietest beaches in the U.S. and enjoy a morning walk dolphin-spotting or shell collecting. After a day of fun on the beach or in the Bay, relax on Brise Del Mar’s screen porch and watch the sun set over the beautiful, undeveloped nature preserve just behind the house. You might even catch sight of a bald eagle soaring above the trees.
The layout of Brise Del Mar is ideal for families wanting room to spread out. The upstairs combines a spacious living and dining area with a large kitchen (complete with gas cooktop and quartz countertops) -- great for family or group gatherings. And when the adults need quiet time, the large downstairs den is the perfect place to send the kids.
Brise Del Mar was built to be a home -- not just a vacation rental. As such, it has great "bones" (e.g. spacious rooms, high ceilings, high quality materials and systems, acoustic insulation, and more), as well as a designer's attention to detail in the upscale finishes, fixtures, appliances and furnishings. With its quality and special charm, Brise Del Mar is a place that guests will come to think of as a "home away from home."
