Welcome to Sunset Paradise!!
Thank you for considering us for your vacation. We love it here and we know that you will, too. Spring 2017 we went through a major remodel adding a 12' x 7.5' swim spa, 800 sq ft of deck, new flooring, new kitchen appliances and updated bathrooms. We tried to make it perfect for you in every way. Cape San Blas is known for its clear, clean, aquamarine water, sugar-like sand, tall dunes, stunning views, and secluded location. Today it is getting harder and harder to find a quiet place to soothe away stress. Well, this is the place! (please note that this home does not permit pets)
A great beach house professionally redecorated 2016. The house comfortably sleeps 11 vacationers with new top-quality memory foam mattresses to help ensure you wake up rested and ready to enjoy the day. The top level starts with our large, fully equipped kitchen where you will find everything needed by cooks at any level. Some fresh shrimp, oysters or fish is all you need to create the perfect beach dinner. Don’t forget steaks on the outdoor propane grill. You can dine outside with seating for at least 12 or dine in at the dining room table for 8 with seating for 2 more at the breakfast bar. We have a Keurig and a KitchenAid 12 cup coffeemaker. Next is the spacious living area with plenty of room to hang out, play games, or just relax and watch a good movie. It has a 55 inch Flat screen TV with cable and free WIFi. This level is completed with a king master suite with flat screen TV that opens to the screened deck and has an attached full bath.
The middle level has a second king master with flat screen TV opening to the covered deck, also with an attached full bath. Across the way is a double queen room with another flat screen TV, its own private full bath and access to the deck with its spectacular views. This level also has a second family space for the kids with a flat screen TV. The couch in this room makes into a queen size sleeper. Perfect for a slumber party!!
The lower level has a half bath just a short way from the beach. The laundry room and ample storage complete this level.
Why Come Here?
Of course, that starts with the location. Walk directly to the ocean on your own boardwalk. Steps away from one of the most beautiful, wide sugar white sand beaches on the planet, this kid and pet beach is simply amazing. No need to pack your lunch - the beach is so close to the house! Most days you will see dolphins playing off shore with pelicans, sandpipers, and sea gulls sharing the neighborhood. Giant loggerhead turtles annually select the cape for nesting. One of the highlights of this beach is its seclusion and privacy.
There are lots of ways to catch the views. Enjoy your morning coffee or late afternoon beverage watching from one of the decks, complete with screened-in porch facing the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and sparkling emerald water.
We love the sunsets. At twilight this is the perfect spot to marvel at the sun dropping silently in the gulf. Although, if you listen hard you would swear the sun’s going under makes a sound like the last plink of a skipping rock. Following sunset, an amazing display of the Milky Way and stargazing awaits. I guess you can understand our choice of the name, this is truly paradise found and a dream come true! Make Sunset Paradise your home on the beach!!!
The State Park on the north end of the Cape has 10 miles of sugar white sand, this park is one of the top rated beaches in the United States rated #1 by Dr. Beach in 2002. Sunbathing, shelling, snorkeling, swimming, bicycling and fishing are popular activities. A boat ramp which accommodates most trailered vessels is located at Eagle Harbor. Some of the highest dunes in the nation are found here as well as some of the last remaining habitat of coastal sand pine scrub. St Joseph Peninsula State Park has an abundance of wildlife and provides excellent opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. The park is extremely popular during scallop season (July thru Labor Day).
The fishing is superb, either in the surf out front or minutes away in St. Joe Bay, where Tarpon make their yearly appearance in July and August. Cobia, Pompano, Redfish and Speckled Trout help make the Cape a fisherman’s paradise. Other activities include diving for scallops in late summer, crabbing, and beach combing. The surf is normally low, making for excellent swimming and kayaking.
