Currently my wife and I live in Roswell Georgia, and we purchased 'Casablanca' last year to retire later on, since our dream for retirement is to be beach bums, fish, boat, and enjoy this beautiful part of Florida.
My wife grew up in Hull Mas, and has always missed this unique sliver of land near Hingham, which is right of the coast south of Boston. I am a native of Havana, and have always missed the warmth and proximity to the beautifull beaches in Havana. So when we planned to retire we found the Cape 'Just Perfect' as Cape San Blas is similar to Hull in length and width but much-much warmer just like the beaches in Havana.
Vince Bishop purchased this house in 2012
Casablanca is conveniently located, it is a very cozy beach cabin. The property is located in Cape San Blas, which is a Pet friendly beach away from all tourism. The area is crime free, and family oriented.
Relaxation at its best. You get there and in about less than 1 hour realize what life is all about. The sound of the ocean, and the quiet setting is incredible. You meet people at the beach and constantly make new friends. No one is afraid to talk to each other.
The Cape is connected to the Florida peninsula by a sliver of land, Cape San Blas is home to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, named the best beach in America (2002) by Dr. Stephen P. Leatherman (a.k.a. Dr. Beach). Cape San Blas, located near Port St. Joe along the Florida Panhandle’s Emerald Coast, is truly a vacation paradise. Here, you’ll find miles of uncrowded, pristine, white sand beaches. Among the other attractions: Pet-friendly vacation rentals, fishing, kayaking and boating, family-owned restaurants serving fresh Florida seafood, and the famed Cape San Blas lighthouse. Frequently rebuilt and relocated in response to eroding seas, the 101-foot-tall, 131-step lighthouse and two accompanying buildings may be moved to Port St. Joe. But you still can see the top of the tower from Cape San Blas Road and inventive visitors who don't mind walking a mile or so along the beach can get a good look.
