We retired in 2010 and bought Hearts of Palm as our 2nd home. We regularly spend time at the house with family and friends.

Terry DiNatale purchased this house in 2010

The charm of 'Old Florida' defines the Cape San Blas area. Abundant wildlife, uncrowded beaches and no traffic are the hallmarks of this area. Most of the area is single family homes. Very few condos line the beach. It isn't uncommon to be the only one walking the beach in the morning and afternoon.

We enjoy the shops and the restaurants in Port St Joe and Apalachicola, It is common to see deer next to our pool on a daily basis. Eagles and other birds are always in the area. The stars at night are a real show. The fishing is outstanding.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in the spring of 2012- they wouldn't let me write that- I know this is late.

It was wonderful!! We have been trying to figure a way back ever since!!! The house was perfect, the pool was amazing, and the beach and waters were incredible. One day there was a pod of dolphins so close to the beach it was absolutely unreal!!!

The house was fabulous. The bedrooms were amazing, take turns in the master bath!! The pool was a great alternative to the beach on some days. The sound system was great and fun to have at the pool!!! The whole set up was wonderful for our group. We had small children and it was amazing!!

The ONLY "downfall" would be for people who aren't happy enjoying the house and laying around. It's a good trek to anything including the grocery store. We rented some bikes, but the roads are NOT wide enough to ride on and it got a little scary for some of us. If you want a busy life around you this wouldn't be for you. If you're interested in the beach and relaxing you'll LOVE this!!!

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION FOR WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
My daughter was married on the beach at Hearts of Palm and the reception was held at the house. It was just perfect with most of the dancing and activities being held under starlight and lanterns around the exterior. It's amazing what decorators can do to transform a driveway, decks, and walk-through garage. The following day we hosted a low-country boil and cookout for those still in the area. After the wedding, we spent the rest of the week enjoying the quietness of the beach. The house and location served us well and we will always have very fond memories with lots of beautiful pictures to remind us that the bride and groom had the wedding that was just what they wanted. Thanks for sharing your home.

PEACE AND TRANQULITY ON THE FORGOTTEN COAST

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a relaxing hideaway this is it. Deer and wildlife early in the morning right outside your fence. Situated right next door to a nature preserve this location is great for families and nature lovers. We went swimming in the Gulf every morning without seeing anyone. The pool is a sun worshipers dream, with shade in the late afternoon and a large umbrella for the rest of us. At night with a million stars all around we had bonfires on the beach just like in the old days. Inside is top notch, beautifully decorated and well equipped. We will be returning next year with the whole family.

BEAUTIFUL HOME BUT NOT A BEACH LOVERS LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
Our group has stayed on Cape San Blas three times. All have been fantastic except this last visit. While Hearts of Palm is beautiful the beach area is not. The water on the other end of the Cape is clear this area is murky. They allow vehicles to ride on the beach so be ready for traffic. The house has no screened area and the bugs are plentiful. The pool has no shade so it is quite warm. If you like to sit inside and watch movies this is the house for you.

Owner's Response: Hearts of Palm is located on the south end of Cape San Blas. Like most areas of the Gulf, storms, wind and heavy surf can discolor the water for short periods. Once calmed, the water returns to its normal blue color. Since Gulf County permits vehicles on the beach, it isn't unusual to see a few cars driving down the beach to fish in the adjacent nature preserve, to check on sea turtle nests or to build a beach bonfire. Rarely are there more than a few vehicles a day. Be prepared for pesky insects whenever you travel to Florida. Warm summer nights and light winds bring all the critters out. Insect spray and Deet candles are a good addition to any beach bag when the refreshing sea breeze isn't present. The Florida panhandle can get quite warm in the summer. Essential for your trip is a good "screw-type" beach or pool umbrella. We do not leave umbrellas up around our pool for fear the wind will pick them up and injure one of our guests or damage the house. We recently installed a "pool fountain" to help keep the pool water cool and refreshing during the hot summer months. We hope you will enjoy the "Old Florida" charm of the Beaches of Gulf County.

UPDATE: We added a screen porch and have a Mosquito Magnet to help with pesky insects.
