About the property

I DO NOT DO ONLINE BOOKING. Please contact via email or phone if interested in renting.

The rates are listed after the Availability Calendar.

The Beach Bungalow is a beautiful beachfront townhouse. Sit on either the first floor deck or the master bedroom deck relax to the sights and sound of the Gulf. See shrimp boats and dolphin from the decks. Peaceful and exquisite. Only 50 feet off a beautiful secluded beach you have a clear view of the Gulf. Features include a pool.

With only 12 units and the only multi-unit homes in the area you will find the beach secluded and private compared to Barrier Dunes with 190 units (only 15 with Gulf view) or Barefoot Cottages which are not on the beach at all.

The Grounds: Exiting from the living area is a screened deck with a gas grill and patio table and chairs. Out the back door and you are no more than 20 feet from the pool. There is a gazebo by the pool and a boardwalk to the beach. There are 2 outdoor showers. Bonfires are permitted (check with county first incase there is a fire ban) on the beach for a cozy campfire. From long walks on the secluded beach, shelling, exploring the beaches, fishing, playing or swimming in either the pool or Gulf of Mexico it or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. There is also plenty of parking right in front of the Beach Bungalow. Bringing the groceries and suitcases from the car to the house is a breeze.

Cape Villas has many activities to choose from within a 30-minute drive. Nested between Port St Joe and Apalachicola, there are many restaurants, activities, and shopping. There are also places nearby that rent boats and personal watercraft (Jet-Skis).

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park: St. Joseph Peninsula State Park with miles of white sugar sand, this park has one of the top rated beaches in the United States. Sunbathing, snorkeling, and swimming are popular activities along the Gulf of Mexico and St. Joseph Bay. From offshore, canoeists and kayakers can take in a superb view of the high dunes and sand pine scrub. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy fishing, hiking, and bicycling. As a coastal barrier peninsula, St. Joseph provides excellent opportunities for bird watching; over 240 species have been sighted in the park. A boat ramp is located at Eagle Harbor on the bay side.

St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge: The refuge is managed to preserve, in as natural a state as possible, its highly varied plant and animal communities. St Vincent has a large variety of exotic and endangered wildlife. Ten separate habitat types have been identified: tidal marsh; freshwater lakes and streams; dunes dominated by live oak/mixed hardwood understory; scrub oaks; relatively pure stands of cabbage palm; and four different slash pine communities, each with its own unique understory species. St. Vincent is an important stop-off point in the Gulf of Mexico region for neo-tropical migratory birds. The island is a haven for endangered and threatened species, including bald eagles, sea turtles, indigo snakes, and gopher tortoises. Wood storks use the refuge during their migration. In addition, the refuge serves as a breeding area for endangered red wolves. You can get there by boat or ferry.

About Mary

I live in the area and manage my unit. I am easily contacted and will do everything in my power to make sure that you have an enjoyable vacation.

Mary purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Mary chose Port St. Joe

My husband , I and our children vacationed at Cape Villas. I have many fond memories of our vacationing at the beach and decided to purchase a unit after my husband passed away.

What makes this townhome unique

Having lived in the unit for over a year while rehabbing it, I was able to make sure that all the comforts of home are available. There are many added feature to make you feel at home and have a comfortable stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. This is a very unique area. There are no tall condos or hotels anywhere near by! Our beaches are very quiet and peaceful, and in the off-season, in particular, you will rarely encounter anyone as you stroll quietly along the beach. It is a wonderful choice for a family vacation. There are many State and Federal parks around us. St Joe Park has been rated as the #1 beautiful beach in America!

Kids had a blast.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the Beach Bungalow. The townhouse was nice, clean, and very spacious. We had everything we needed. It was Very quiet and non crowded area. It was July 4th week and there was barely anyone on the beach! Sighted dolphins, crabs, and tons of shells. The Money Bayou was a big hit with the kids. They loved to catch crabs and little fish. One of our neighbors let us use their kayak and we went down the bayou. We all had a blast!

Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I loved it. It was fresh and clean. Want to come back. Loved having no high rises. Beach was mostly private. Dog friendly. If you want a great pizza go to Jo Mammas, for Mexican go to Peppers.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. The area is very unique. A true taste of the "old south". Unique in many ways from the uncrowded beaches to the absence of high rises. With St Vincent Sound to the east and St Joseph State park to the west, Mother Nature is at her best. We are one of the last beaches in Florida that is pet friendly. With plenty of options for restaurants, it is hard to decide which one to choose. I hope you decide to visit us again soon.

very homey, has everything you could need, even dog towels and bowls.

  • 5 of 5

We love this little condo. It's close to the pool and close to the besch now that the bayou has been fixed. We are learning more resturants in the area. The only negative is the parking space for ths condo gets sprayed by the sprimkler system every night and leaves hard water spots on the car that takes lots of time and elbow grease to get off. Other than that, it is perfect for us and our little Westie.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for letting me know about the sprinkler head. I will look into that this weekend. I always look forward to your visit. Hope to see you again soon.

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Cape Villas! The house was very clean and ideal for our family of five. The pool is right outside the door and even though we had next door neighbors, it was very quiet and we couldn't hear them at all. The house is steps away from the beach and even though the bayou was flowing, it was not a problem at all to cross. I would definitely recommend this condo if you want a vacation that is quiet and away from all the crowds.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. I always enjoy happy guests. I also love Cape Villa's Beach Bungalow. I enjoy the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of the area. The beach and the pool are very relaxing and I try to keep the townhouse well stocked and comfortable. I hope when you return to the area that you keep me in mind for your stay and happy that your family is able to enjoy my townhouse.

There are many State Parks to choose from, 2 of the most popular are:

St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge:

Fish, swim, or just relax on the beach. Money Bayou provides plenty to do from crabbing to kayaking and taking in nature. Bonfires are permitted (check with county first in case there is a fire ban) on the beach for a cozy campfire. From long walks on the secluded beach, shelling, exploring the beaches, fishing, playing or swimming in either the pool or Gulf or just relaxing on the beach with a good book. There is also plenty of parking right in front of the Beach Bungalow. Bringing the groceries and suitcases from the car to the house is a breeze. An undeveloped barrier island just offshore from the mouth of the Apalachicola River, in the Gulf of Mexico. The refuge is managed to preserve, in as natural a state as possible, it’s highly varied plant and animal communities.

St. Joseph Peninsula State Park: Miles of white sand, has one of the top rated beaches in the U.S.
