'CAPE ANN '- GULF FRONT - ONE LEVEL - FREE U.S. CALLS, WIFI - NEAR STATE PARK

Cape San Blas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Open space, private - a mellow place to soothe the mind! No crowds, mega-resorts, glitzy nightlife, instead - breathing room with easy access to water and wildlife. A 2014 travel magazine has named Cape San Blas one of Florida's best dive destinations. Hiking trails in the state park and a 9 mile paved bike path are nearby. A general store rents bikes and kayaks in addition to selling food, drinks and ice.

'Cape Ann' sits low in the landscape blending with surrounding environment - creating a sense of unity with nature.

Our home is in the gated section known as Secluded Dunes, adjacent to the 2,500 acre St. Joseph Peninsula State Park - offering 10 miles of undeveloped coast and 35 foot high sand dunes. It borders the state park designated wilderness preserve where a variety of animals and birds share the space. Part of the charm and fun of 'Cape Ann' - not too fancy, too upscale, too perfect - but, having a calm, comfortable, 'welcome to the beach' essence.

The west side of the property opens to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico displaying the wide beach of sugar white sand and sparkling emerald water. Giant loggerhead turtles select the cape for nesting. Most days you will see dolphins playing off shore and pelicans, sandpipers, and sea gulls sharing the neighborhood. This is the perfect spot to watch the sun drop silently into the gulf. Following the sunset, an amazing stargazing opportunity awaits. Shrimp boats are often seen working off shore.

The gulf side of 'Cape Ann'' features a spacious screened porch. A covered porch runs across the front with a piney woods view. Deer enjoy munching on the lush vegetation which includes beach scrub, live oaks and sabal palms.

'Cape Ann'' is a great choice for families who value serenity and natural beauty. It is convenient (ALL ON ONE LEVEL) and inviting with simplicity and ease. When the time is right for a quiet retreat, you have found the place!

'Cape Ann' is SMOKEFREE, NO PETS ALLOWED and has an Age Restriction. No reservations accepted for vacationing students or singles under age 25 unless accompanied by adult legal guardian or parent during entire stay. Chaperoned groups not accepted. Restrictions apply regarding number of people that may accompany parent or legal guardian. Our home is on a Sun. to Sun. schedule for Peak Season. If you need a Sat. to Sat. rental, we recommend 'Cape Refreshment' www.vrbo.com/250217 on the cape or our home at Carillon Beach www.vrbo.com/33566.

About Joyce and Bill Miller

Owners are sisters who had rented vacation homes in the area several years. It was always fun getting together at a beach house.

Joyce and Bill Miller purchased this house in 2002

Why Joyce and Bill Miller chose Cape San Blas

The Secluded Dunes section of cape offers what we love - privacy, seclusion, natural beauty and quiet space. The name Cape Ann is in memory of our mom and happy times with her at the cape.

What makes this house unique

This home was designed with comfort in mind. One flight of stairs up from the carport and then everything is on one level. Bedrooms are separated nicely for privacy. Two bedrooms have own bath, two other bedrooms share Jack and Jill style bath. Kitchen is quite large with pantry storage. There is a pleasing piney woods view from window above sink.

Screened gulf side porch has beautiful view of beach and gorgeous sand dune with wind-swept vegetation.

CAPE ANN IS THE BEST!!

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough great things about Cape Ann and the owners! We have been to the Cape many times but this was our first time staying and Cape Ann and we just loved it. The layout of the house worked perfect for us and the one level home was plenty of room for our family. My 2 boys (7 & 9) played on the beach, in the ocean, fished, built campfires at night, went crab hunting, and so much more. We relaxed and enjoyed our much need time together. I love the seclusion of Cape Ann. I have never encountered such kind, helpful people as the owners of Cape Ann. Every description that they give regarding the house is 100% accurate. Thank you for the stay and we can't wait to visit again soon!

Cape Ann = Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at Cape Ann on the beach at Cape San Blas. The house is right on the beach - just a few steps on their private walkway over the dunes and you have miles of beautiful, white sand. The beach is practically deserted most of the time so you feel like you're on your own private beach. Just a few walkers and shellers pass by from time-to-time. The house itself is the perfect layout for families or friends. With two bedrooms (each with their own private bath) on one side, and two bedrooms (with shared bath) on the other side of the living/eating area, the house set-up flows really well. Now, if you're looking for the most up-to-date, trendy decor, you won't find it here. But why would you care? This is a beach house, meant for comfort and living casually...and hopefully most of your time here will be spent on the beach or at the gorgeous state park just yards away from the house. We had three teenage boys with us and they were never bored - always found something to do or somewhere to fish, hike, set up their hammock, go long-boarding, etc. Cape Ann is a great rental and I highly recommend it. This section of Cape San Blas is very secluded, private, and peaceful; while it takes about 30 minutes to get to the nearest big grocery store, there is a small trading post/store close by on Cape San Blas Road that has everything you need in a pinch. Buy your groceries and supplies before you get to the house and you'll be ready for an extraordinary beach vacation!

Cape Ann in May

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I (and now our 18-month-old son) have been making annual late spring / early summer trips to Cape San Blas for the past three years, and this was our first time staying at Cape Ann. It's just as described in the owner's description -- "not too fancy, too upscale, too perfect - but [...] comfortable".

Honestly, Cape Ann was perfect for us. Cape San Blas is already the place to go for uncrowded beaches, but we really liked how private and secluded Cape Ann was.

Our 18-month-old enjoyed playing in the screened-in porch just as much (if not moreso) than he did playing on the beach. And we liked the fact that the property was very kid-friendly -- the single level house and screened-in porch with latching screen doors meant that mommy and daddy didn't have to worry about the kiddo tumbling down a flight of stairs every moment. The house was clean and well-taken care of, a sharp contrast to other beach-front properties we've stayed at on the Cape in the past.

As far as amenities go, it had nearly everything we could ask for (a nice supply of pots and pans, utensils, blender, toaster, etc...) and one shining star that we didn't expect to love as much as we did -- a built-in dedicated ice-maker! An ice maker is one of those things that you don't quite have an appreciation for until you experience it for yourself. And then you wonder how you went through life without one. Of course, I don't really need one in my day-to-day existence, but a seemingly endless supply of ice comes in very handy at the beach (for filling coolers, or blending "frozen concoctions that help me hang on..."). In the past, we've had to make trips to either of the only two stores on the Cape to pick up bags of ice... But not anymore!

We look forward to returning to Cape San Blas for many seasons to come! And, we'd happily stay at Cape Ann!

Secluded Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The wife, son and I had an outstanding time at Cape Ann. It was absolutely beautiful. It was a very positive experience. Our first time to stay in a beach house. Won't be our last! We even saw Dolphins frolicking between the first and second sand dunes! The home was well furnished for our HUGE mid-week shrimp boil we had for us and our guests. The place was totally secluded like we anticipated. We will be prepared for the biting beach flies next time around. I am glad I found this place. We plan on taking the same crew there next year. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Cape Ann - Secluded Dunes

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had an outstanding time at Cape Ann. This was our second trip to Cape San Blas and the first time up in the Secluded Dunes area. It was absolutely beautiful with the white sand, sea life, and peace and quiet. The home is very well furnished and Martha and Bill are great to work with. If you're looking for no traffic, no shops / restaurants, and no noise except the sound of waves this is the place. We'll be back.
