About David Harrell

We love the Cape and bought this Seacliffs townhome in 1997. We were soon packing up and driving down from Atlanta as often as possible. In 1999, we had the opportunity to rent our Atlanta home and moved to the Cape as full-time residents till 2002 for 5 years, now it is a full time rental, so we can share this wonderful and amazingly special piece of paradise.

David Harrell purchased this townhome in 1997

Why David Harrell chose Florida Panhandle

As we lived in the unit, we dreamed of improvements we could make it more like a house than a town-home. We soon gutted it and one thing led to another. I remember when David drove up with a trailer of 150-year reclaimed heart pine from that became our first floor. He laid every piece with great care. We have a photo album of some of the renovation project in the TV cabinet.. It was truly the proverbial labor of love. It continues to this day as we are always updating and trying to make it even more user-friendly and accomodating.

What makes this townhome unique

This end unit has 25 windows with expansive views from every single room. Because of the privacy and stunning views, it feels more like a house than part of a development.. It's fun to cook and hang out and you have the feeling that the outside is inside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at you vacation home. Kitchen was well supplied with pots and pans, dishes, silverware. We loved the big screen television. The views, as you said were very nice, and we loved that this was pet friendly. I give it a 4 Star!

Beautiful & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful. There was 4 brand new bikes, and a brand new kayak for two people. This made our stay so wonderful. The home was very clean and stocked. Thank you for sharing your home we will be back.

Outdated and Dirty

  • 5 of 5

Great location and views, but very outdated. Housekeeping was spotty at best. Downstairs fridge was old and filthy. Only one bike was usable at the time of arrival and we had to buy beach chairs because the ones at the condo were rusted or broken. Had to use a wrench to control water in the upstairs shower. Needs a new A/C or an additional unit. Upstairs bedroom stayed unpleasantly hot the entire stay.

Great beach vacation. Great condo on a beautiful beach.

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers are correct to point out that this is definitely one of the best units in the complex. It is an end on the beach, and has side windows to let in a lot more light. This beach is incredible. It is the softest white sand I've ever seen (and I grew up in Clearwater near some beautiful beaches).

Here is some more detail if you are interested.

This particular building is older, so it has peeling paint on the outside. It is, however, very nice for its age on the inside. A few wall marks and such, but overall, just as nice as the photos show.

If you have never stayed on Cape San Blas, you need to know this is remote. It is a 30 minute drive to the nearest full grocery store (a small one at that). There are two small convenience stores on the island which both charge about double what something should cost. There are also only two restaurants on the island. Both of them are sort of bar/sandwich oriented. They are both good, but if you typically stay in someplace like Hilton Head, you will be cooking a lot more than you expect.

Finally, they allow people to build fires on the beach at night. This is fun, but also leaves some places with lots of black chunks of charcoal littering the beach. Not that it is a problem, but it is just strange because it really distracts from an otherwise pristine location.

With all that said, if you plan ahead by bringing provisions, and you like a quiet beach, this is absolutely incredible and a must visit location.

awesome place to stay on the beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend a vacation! This condo has it all location, great views from every room 3 balconies 25 windows there isn't a condo in Seacliff that has a better view on the beach, just a minute from the door to toes in the sand and surf. Very comfortable place to spend a vacation you have everything you need for a great vacation just bring your clothes, fishing gear and don't forget your Dog as this house is dog friendly but you would never know it as very clean, our best freind loved his stay here too! He made freinds with all the other puppy's we meet on the beach. There is so much to do on the Cape!!! Playing on the Beach, exploring the State Park that is just minutes for the condo and St Vincent Island 20 minutes away as well as some great restaurants in Port St. Joe also about 20 minutes away. All in all a great place to relax, explore and have the time of your life!!! Don't miss this awesome place to stay on the beach!! We will alway have great memories of our stay here on the Cape. WOW!

Our Early Christmas Present!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several places on Cape San Blas and Amelia by the Sea is the best one yet. The owner, Dave, is terrific and so very accommodating. The views from this unit are outstanding and all the comforts of home are provided. This is such a charming place and it has a lot of character. Can't wait until we can go back! Thanks, Dave, for a wonderful stay.
