Property description

Find the Forgotten Coast with all of the modern convenience of a well-kept, loving home. Stay connected while away from it all with wireless high speed Internet. Sustain your soul while sitting on an Adirondack chair on an expansive covered deck adjoining an uncovered deck with luring Gulf views. Sustain your body with a fully equipped kitchen (updated in December 2015) to support any foodie’s passion, and make memories with family meals and game night in the mural walled dining area. Get lost in one of many books from the library, or catch up on your favorite shows on the flat screen cable TV with Blue Ray DVD player while stretching out on one of two leather reclining sofas. Year round, you will be comfortable with central heat and air and ceiling fans, a wood burning fireplace, well stocked game closet, extensive book and movie collection (DVD and VCR), and luxury linens (300 thread count or above).

This spacious 3 bedroom, 3 bath, single family house faces the beach with an inviting ocean view. The open plan downstairs is characterized by a professional artist ocean mural on a feature wall with access to a spacious L-shaped kitchen – the Keurig coffee maker or electric kettle can coax you to wake for a magical sunrise walk on the expansive beach. The mural sets the mood for the dining room with a large wooden table and chairs comfortably seating 6-8 loved ones. The living room is defined by 2 leather reclining sofas controlled by electrical buttons, positioned to enjoy a 54 in. flat screen TV, wood burning fireplace and French doors. The downstairs living area has a convenient full bathroom (with access to the side entrance and outdoor shower). All this lovely living space extends outdoors in both the front and rear with wooden Adirondack chairs and dining table on spacious decks. The upstairs supports three generous bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The en suite front bedroom, decorated in warm yellow, has two twin beds, a desk, dresser and TV; the master bedroom, decorated in cool blue, has a queen bed, handcrafted rocker for reading, a dresser and TV, and bathroom with a vanity area; finally the third bedroom, decorated in cool blue, is accessible through the master bedroom, caressed in light and the music of the ocean waves with 5 ocean view windows, a VCR TV, and spacious seating area of wicker furnishings.

Amazing Grace is a well maintained and cared for home with wide planked oak wood floors and a calm coastal color palette. Child and Pet Friendly! Non Smoking! Situated on the 1st tier, Amazing Grace has easy beach access and ocean views. Our house is located a stone’s throw from two direct boardwalks to the beach. Each boardwalk is about 300 feet long ending directly on a wide beach with soft, white sand dunes (about 600 feet to the water). The back deck of the house is spacious and enticing with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. From the bay side of the house you can just make out the St. Joseph Bay, a designated Florida Aquatic Preserve. Both beach and bay are convenient to access from Amazing Grace, by foot or car and boat trailer. Amazing Grace is located approximately one mile West on Cape San Blas Road after turning off C-30 toward the Cape.

World renowned for nature activities such as fishing, scalloping, kayaking, boating, shell collecting, horseback riding, bicycling, and wildlife watching, especially migrating birds or butterflies, and local playful bottlenose dolphins. These and other nature based activities are just outside your door. Discover the best kept secret of Florida.

Saturday to Saturday Rentals preferred but other dates and partial weeks are considered. Specials do not include holidays. The closest major airports are the Panama City Bay County International airport (PFN) located approximately 36 miles northwest of Port St Joe in Panama City, Florida, and the Tallahassee Regional airport (TLH) located roughly 69 miles northeast of Port St Joe in Tallahassee Florida.

CAPE SAN BLAS FLORIDA IS VOTED BEST DOG FRIENDLY BEACH IN AMERICA
