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!
