In addition to these unique assets, Sea Haven is beautifully decorated. The pictures don't do our decor justice.

Three different living areas allows everyone to spread out and do their own thing, from chatting in the bright Adirondack chairs overlooking the beach, reading a book, watching a movie on the big screen TV, to playing a game of ping pong. Not to mention our beautiful private pool, and the gorgeous beach just a short walk away.

Sea Haven has spectacular unobstructed views of the beautiful, white sand beaches and natural sand dunes of the Gulf of Mexico and is located in Sea Grass, one of the most prestigious, new, Gulf-front subdivisions on Cape San Blas.

Relax by your own private pool after a full day of fun on the beach The beach is just a short walk past our pool and down the boardwalk. You also have access to the subdivision’s community pool and clubhouse.

We have many custom features including wood floors, bead board trim, ceramic tile, granite and Corian countertops, and three walk-in tiled showers. We provide wireless DSL internet access. The full-size kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, including a separate icemaker, a Keurig, and a full selection of gourmet-quality cookware. You will enjoy spectacular sunsets and panoramic views while dining on the deck just off the kitchen. You can fire up the gas grill to savor the fresh seafood available in the are.

Our home has three master bedrooms with King beds, each with private bath that has a double vanity and walk-in shower. Each master has direct access to our spacious decks and glorious views. You can sit out in our colorful Adirondack chairs to enjoy an early morning coffee or to watch the beautiful sunsets.

The kids' room has two sets of bunk beds each with a trundle, so possibly six kids in this room! There is also a fifth bedroom on the ground floor with two twin beds, which is perfect for older kids or grandparents. Each bedroom has its own private bath and satellite TV. The den has a queen-size sleeper sofa.

You will find that our home offers you plenty of gathering space, while also providing extra spaces to sneak off to for quiet time.

The second-floor kitchen opens into the great room, providing a perfect setting for fun family gatherings. If the weather turns cool, our gas fireplace will burn off the chill. We have provided a full library of books, movies, and games for the whole family.

Sea Haven is located within a short distance of St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, rated #1 beach in the United States for 2002. In addition to the award-winning beach, this state park also offers nature trails through beautiful natural dunes, fishing on the beach, and an abundance of birds. You may also see dolphins off the shore and small Cape deer on the trails. St. Joseph Bay is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, scalloping, and snorkeling. Nearby stores and outfitting companies can provide the necessary equipment for all types of activities.

For shopping, antiques and excellent restaurants, Apalachicola is just 20 minutes away. This sleepy former cotton port is filled with quaint shops, cute little bungalows, and great seafood restaurants. Port St. Joe also provides good shopping and dining, and is just 15 minutes away. Bring your tennis rackets or golf clubs, and try the facilities of St. Joseph Bay Country Club, which is open to the public for a small fee. The country club is located just a few minutes away.

Sea Haven is the perfect beach home, and you will feel like you are vacationing in a resort. This will be a vacation you will want to repeat often! We look forward to having you as our guests at Sea Haven.

About Trish Stoeppelwerth

Our house on Cape San Blas is our favorite place to be! We are a family of four - Paul and Trish and our two young adult children. Our son is developmentally disabled who loves to walk on the beach, and our daughter is a recent college grad. We live in a suburb north of Atlanta.

Trish Stoeppelwerth purchased this house in 2005

Why Trish Stoeppelwerth chose Port St. Joe

Cape San Blas was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation spot. It has beautiful, white sand beaches and the clear blue water of the Gulf of Mexico, but does not have any crowds or traffic. It is heaven!

What makes this house unique

We have incredible, panoramic ocean views from our wrap-around decks on the top two levels of our 4,000 square foot house. We love having our own private pool so close to the ocean; we can enjoy being on the beach, then lounge in our pool. So refreshing! This is one of the few large houses on Cape San Blas that offers a bathroom for every bedroom. No sharing! And we have no carpet, hardwoods or tile throughout!

Guestbook comments from the manager

One of the best beach houses we have been to. The pool, the ping pong table, and most importantly, the beach. Not being right by the beach, the view was marvelous. After a long fun day at the beach, the pool area was great. The ping pong room was the perfect place to be. The bikes were awesome not being from the Trading Post. The balconies were the most amazing part, being able to see everything. When it comes time for a nap, we loved the hammock. We loved the bedrooms, the living room and the media room.

Car: necessary

We are located in the SeaGrass subdivision right off Cape San Blas Road. Adjacent to Cape San Blas Road is the bike path that leads to Coneheads and the State Park. The State Park is about four miles to the North, and we're about one mile past The Trading Post convenience store.

Beach dreams come true

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home has all you need to make your beach vacation a phenomenal one. The home is large and clean. Bathrooms are large and beds are comfortable! What makes the trip memorable is the view. The sunsets are spectacular! There is plenty of seating on each level for relaxing and enjoying the ocean air.

Beautiful home with a great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall very nice place to stay. There were a couple of small issues when we first got to the house. We reported the problems to the management for resolution. Everything we needed to prepare our own meals was provided.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay! I'm sorry you experienced some issues. I hadn't heard about anything, so I checked to see what they were. The only problems were a lightbulb that needed to be replaced and a sliding door on the top floor that was difficult to lock. Unfortunately, light bulbs do burn out in any home. I'm glad my management company was able to quickly get you a replacement bulb. As to the slider, that floor is three stories up with no outside access; you'd have to have a fire truck ladder to reach that door! Thank you, though, for bringing it to our attention, we will make sure to fix that!

Looks just like the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! Everything was so clean and nicely decorated. The pool was great and only a short walk from a very private beach. Never had many people on it. Overall, we had a great week and will be back!

Great Family Get-Away Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home in September 2015. We brought our 2 dogs. The home was very clean, spacious, comfortable, and beautiful! What is there to not love?? The pool was wonderful. We were very close to the beach--which was perfect! The neighborhood was nice, quiet, friendly. The kitchen had everything and all the space we needed! And the ice maker!! I want one in our home!

Thank you for sharing your home with us! We will be back!

Fantastic Family Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & myself, our daughter & son-in-law, our four grandchildren, my sister, our son-in law's mother, & two friends... just spent a glorious week together at Sea Haven... that's twelve people! There was plenty of room for everyone, & we all had a great vacation! The house is well appointed, & beautiful! The large & open family room/ kitchen area was the favorite gathering spot for all of us to be together, when we were not at the private pool, or at the beach. Note to future guests... the beach was very private , but there ARE sharks close in. A six foot shark was washed up on the sand our 2nd day there, so please do beware! Also several large snakes were spoted down shore... if you prefer to be away from the tourist shops, etc. Cape San Blas is perfect! I would advise grocery shopping before you arrive though, as the local trading post is handy, but extremely expensive, just one example...

(one 12 pack of canned soft-drinks was $5.99) Sea Haven has beautiful views, is equipped with everything you could possibly need, & even had bikes, & some beach items on hand, which was great for our grandchildren! I loved the icemaker under the island in the sister loved the hammock that was outdoors under the shade of palm trees in the late evenings... The only thing we all would have appreciated was maybe an elevator in the house! As my sixteen year old (very athletic & in shape) grandson commented one night, "these stairs are a struggle!'' Still, the stairs I'm sure was a good work-out for us all, especially me! They were wide, & provided easy access to each floor, should you need to take a little break between levels. I would definetely recommend Sea Haven for large family vacations! Thank you for sharing your lovely home! Jan
